Warning: Do not eat foods that contain partially hydrogenated and hydrogenated fats. These fats are found in all kinds of packaged and junk food. Food manufacturers really don't care about your health when they add hydrogenated oils to their foods. Good clean vegetable oils are hydrogenated to create shortenings and margarines. Vegetable oils are partially hydrogenated so they can be added to many foods since they become a source of cheap fat and increase the shelf life of the food product. What do hydrogenated oils do? When healthy oils are processed through bubbling hydrogen at temperatures up to 210 C, un-natural fatty acids are created that are called trans-fatty acids. Your body is unable to use this un-natural fatty acids so the liver see them as toxic waste and proceeds to detoxify and eliminate them. Trans-fatty acids are one of the most toxic wastes that can be inside your body. Trans fatty acids, also, can block your body's use of the essential fatty acids. Hydrogenated oils also have all of their nutrients removed during their processing. This forces removal of vitamins and minerals from your body to help digest the stripped hydrogenated oil. In his book called, Eat Fat Look Thin - A Safe and Natural Way to Lose Weight Permanently, 2002, Bruce Fife, N. D., talks about the dangers of hydrogenated oils, "Trans fatty acids affect more than just our cardiovascular health. According to a study reported by Mary Enig, Ph. D., when monkeys were fed trans fatcontaining margarine in their diets,…their red blood cells did not bind insulin as well as when they were not fed trans. This suggests a link with diabetes. Trans fatty acids have been linked with a variety of adverse health effects which include: cancer, ischemic heart disease, multiple sclerosis diverticulitis, diabetes, and other degenerative conditions." Hydrogenated oils are use by a food processor because they are cheap fats, which increase the size and shelf life of their product. This is where you find hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, * 40% of all foods in a grocery store * 95% of all cookies * 75% of chips and crackers * 70% of all cold cereals and cake mixes * 80% of all frozen breakfast foods * in most microwave popcorn * in many salted peanuts and other nuts * in most candies * most restaurants that fry foods including donut shops shortenings * and the list goes on and on Buy less of these foods and give yourself better health and force the food manufacturers to use less hydrogenated oils in their food products.
Energy Healing literally changed my life. It raised my vibration and raised my consciousness. It gave me the power to leave victim consciousness. It gave me the strength in finding my own self-worth, self-confidence, self-esteem and self-respect. It empowered me – because it taught me to empower myself! I AM free. So how does energy healing actually do this? We ARE energetic beings and everything IS energy. Scientists have proven this to be truth and this article is not about proving this fact. To keep this as simplistic as possible, we have an invisible energy body surrounding our physical body. In this energy body are layers. Each layer has different functions and each layer is associated with a different chakra and each chakra and layer both have an effect on areas of the physical body. The chakras and acupuncture points are openings for energy to flow into and out of the aura (energy body). This energy is associated with a form of consciousness, thus we experience the exchange of energy in the forms of seeing, hearing, feeling, sensing, intuiting or direct knowing. It is important to open the chakras and increase our energy flow, because the more energy we let flow, the healthier we are. Illness in the system is caused by an imbalance of energy or a blocking of the flow of energy. In other words, a lack of flow in the human energy system eventually leads to disease. It also distorts our perceptions and dampens our feelings and therefore interferes with a happy experience of living a joyful life. So what causes an imbalance or block in the flow of energy? The majority of people today have been conditioned to react to unpleasant experiences by blocking our feeling and emotions which stops a great deal of our natural energy flow. An example of this, a person is rejected many times when she tries to show her love to another, she eventually stops showing her love by trying to stop the inner feelings of love. In order to do this, she will have to stop the energy flow through the heart chakra. When the energy flow is stopped or slowed down, the development of the heart chakra is affected which eventually a physical problem will very likely result if the energy does not start to flow smoothly again. This same process works for all the chakras. Whenever a person blocks whatever experiences he is having, he in turn blocks his chakras, which blocks the flow of universal life force energy. Disrupted, weakened, blocked or imbalances in the chakras can all be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way, childhood traumas, cultural conditioning, limited belief system, bad habits or even just a lack of attention all contribute to blockage. Difficulties abound in life, for each one of us, we develop a coping strategy. If these difficulties persist, these coping strategies become chronic patterns, anchored in the body and psyche as defense structures. It is important to recognize the blocks we carry, find and understand their source then heal them. Energy healing is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues. I recommend starting off with the Clearing Program. This program is very in-depth and intense and goes back in time. I also suggest regular energy healing therapy like Reiki Energies. Long term practice of whole-body energy healing will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and the build-up of toxins along with coping with anxiety and depression. Some of the health benefits from receiving energy healing: - Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension - It accelerates the body’s self-healing abilities - Aids better sleep - Reduces blood pressure - Can help with acute injuries and chronic problems (asthma, eczema, headaches, etc.) and aides the breaking of addictions - Helps relieve pain - Removes energy blockages, adjusts the energy flow of the endocrine system bringing the body into balance and harmony - Assists the body in cleaning itself from toxins - Reduces some of the side effects of drugs and helps the body to recover from drug therapy after surgery and chemotherapy - Supports the immune system - Increases vitality and postpones the aging process - Raises the vibrational frequency of the body - Helps spiritual growth and emotional clearing - And more! Energy Healing works. It changes you from the inside out. The main thing to remember is that body, mind and soul together with the energy body, are one invisible whole. This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Higher Self of the receiver (person) to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body. Therefore it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness. It is an extremely powerful, yet a gentle energy that can be easily channeled to yourself and others, just by intention. When it is combined with the sincere desire of the healee, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their consciousness, a total healing can occur. A total NEW you will in time Emerge!
Okay, so you made the decision to improve your health. You’re taking your vitamins, you’ve given up smoking and junk food, and you’ve decided to buy a juicer to take advantage of the health benefits of juicing. All good things. And, according to the latest studies, all things that may help in cancer treatment and prevention, as well as the treatment and prevention of a host of other ailments, including heart disease, asthma, allergies and high blood pressure. But, don’t overlook one important element in helping your body stay healthy. Your mind. That’s right, your mind. It’s called the Mind/Body connection. In a nutshell, what you believe in your mind can influence things in your body. It’s known that anxiety can make any illness worse. Anxiety can make pain feel worse, lower defenses that allow a cold virus to take hold, and can aid in raising your blood pressure. Sometimes the simple act of relaxing can do wonders for your health. That’s all part of the mind/body connection. You’ve heard of the “placebo effect” haven’t you? That’s when you get better thinking you’re taking a certain medication, only to find out you were really taking a sugar pill. In almost all studies of medications, there’s a certain percentage of people who improve taking the placebo. Why? Because they thought they were taking the real thing. They expected to feel better and they did. Now, am I saying you can conquer any illness just by thinking yourself healthy? No. And, if you have any symptoms that concern you, you should see a health-care professional. But, using the power of positive thinking, belief and relaxation techniques in conjunction with healthy eating and modern medicine can certainly help with the treatment of any disease. It can lower anxiety, which can help improve any anxiety-related illness. It can ease nausea in cancer patients, which can help with certain procedures. It can lessen the effects of pain. One way to increase positive belief is with hypnosis or self-hypnosis. Hypnosis allows you to get to that deep state of relaxation where you bypass the critical beta mind. Once in a relaxed trance state it’s good to imagine or visualize your body as perfectly healthy, and repeat positive affirmations to yourself about your body being in perfect health. How does one get into a trance state? One way, of course, is to see a hypnotherapist who will use techniques to hypnotize you. Another way is to hypnotize yourself using self-hypnosis. The simple version is this: Sit in a comfortable position. Close your eyes and begin actively imagining your body relaxing. Take several deep breathes, breathing in relaxation and exhaling any tensions. Start with your feet and imagine them as deeply relaxed. Work your way up your body, imagining that every breath you take brings the relaxation up into the rest of your body. Take your time. It’s not a race. When you’re through actively imaging your body relaxed, take yourself even deeper and imagine yourself going down an elevator, or a staircase, imagining every step down you’re getting even deeper. I use a staircase of 21 stairs and count down. You can use any number you like. When you’ve reached 0 tell yourself you’re in deep sleep, and tell yourself that every time you go down the staircase in your mind you will be deeply relaxed. At this point you imagine your body as healthy, while repeating your affirmations to yourself. Then, when you’re through, just count yourself up and out from 0 to five, telling yourself to open your eyes, and that you’re wide awake and alert. Your self-hypnosis session needn’t be long - 5 or 10 minutes will do. But, practiced daily will certainly help in relieving tensions and anxiety that can weaken your health. And, remember, don’t throw away the juicer or the vitamins. Juicers and vitamins and walking and eating healthy, as well as regular medical checkups, are all part of staying healthy. Remember, it’s called the mind/body connection.
: Have you been off work because of your asthma? Does it get worse at certain times of year or under stress? Are you worried that it's beginning to affect your job and limit your lifestyle? Just one year ago, I found myself in a similar position. Here I was at home (again!) with a bad bout of asthma and concerned for the security of my job as this was my eighth day off with asthma that year. That found me searching the internet for a natural cure for asthma, researching the causes of asthma, how they relate to allergies (which I had as a child) and looking to see what medications and treatments were available. Fed up with taking increasing doses of blue and brown inhalers, that seemed to leave me dependent on medication I read around to see if anyone had found a successful method of controlling their asthma without medication. If you've had asthma, you'll probably relate to the awful feeling when yet another attack comes on and your life is thrown into disarray. You may find that the doctors don't have time to discuss alternative treatments, but simply prescribe the usual inhalers at each visit, check your breathing and lung capacity and sign you off until the next visit. What I found was both interesting and disturbing. The evidence was that much of our asthma today is induced by our modern world. The most concerning thing was that there is no incentive for the drug companies or the doctors to find a natural cure, as they're all making a considerable profit from the conventional inhalers. By searching for “natural asthma cure” I found stories of people who had found alternative methods of managing their asthma and who had been able to cut down their medications (under the advice of their doctor, of course). These are stories that don't hit the headlines, but for the individuals involved are life changing. I decided to give these “new” ideas a try - I had nothing to lose and everything to gain - my job was on the line. The simple regimes involved took less than five minutes per day and within less than a week I could feel the benefits. I've managed to cut down but not cut out my asthma medication and feel far fitter and healthier. The best news of all, I can take a long walk with my son without having to take the inhaler with me. If you're considering an alternative treatment for your asthma, do some research on the internet, check with your doctor or medical practitioner, and be prepared to try more than one idea. Do make sure that you keep your inhaler with you at all times during this trial period. Do try it for more than a day or two, your body may take time to adjust. What works for one person may not work for you, we're all different.

Noted Herbalist Discusses the Active Mechanisms of Swiss Medica’s (OTC BB: SWME) O24™ According to Mike Vertolli, who is recognized as one of Canada's foremost herbalists, “Although it is still in its infancy, research of herbal products and essential oils has increased significantly in the last ten years." Vertolli was a member of Health Canada’s advisory panel on natural health products (Canada’s equivalent of the U. S. Food and Drug Administration). He believes there are constituents within the O24™ Essential Oil pain relief product, which may act as powerful anti-inflammatory agents. Vertolli explained that the constituents within the O24™ pain relief product have undergone rigorous clinical testing. This could help explain why O24™ has become widely accepted in a short period of time. Take for example carnosol, which is a naturally occurring phytopolyphenol found in rosemary. In a study published in the June 2002 issue of Carcinogenesis, biochemists researching anticarcinogenic properties at the College of Medicine’s Institute of Biochemistry at National Taiwan University found that carnosol may suppress nitric oxide production. That may help explain the anti-inflammatory action of the rosemary essential oil component in O24™. Nitric oxide, which is released during inflammation, is a free radical that can damage DNA. Because cancer is often associated with states of chronic inflammation, O24™ may be a potential alternative to anti-inflammatory medicines prescribed to cancer patients. Historically, rosemary was used as an antispasmodic, but recent research confirms its medicinal properties may be broader. According to the American Chemical Society, which recently named the 1,8-cineole its "Molecule of the Week," there may be a scientific reason why the O24™ Essential Oil Pain Neutralizer product has out-performed other topical products in comparative testing. The cineole molecule is a major constituent of white camphor, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils. It is also a minor component of peppermint essential oil. Cineole produces analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting prostraglandin, thromboxane and leukotriene synthesis. Prostaglandin synthesis is one of the culprits which causes chronic pain to last for weeks, months or years. An entire class of anti-inflammatory drugs has come into this culture in an effort to numb chronic pain by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandin. Over the past few months, it has come to the general public's attention that this method of remedying chronic pain can be deadly, i. e. the solution is worse than the problem. “Most people look upon inflammation as if it is something bad," said Vertolli. “Like every physiological response, it has a purpose. Inflammation is an integral part of the healing process. If we apply a product that simply interferes with inflammation, it is going to interfere with healing as well. With O24™ that is not an issue because of the rubefacient (local vasodilator) effects, which increase blood flow to the region (thereby providing greater access to oxygen and nutrients and facilitating the removal of waste products and toxins) and because there are constituents in these herbs that actually stimulate tissue healing. What Vertolli may be suggesting is that a functional solution for most people suffering from pain may have been right under their noses throughout the twentieth century to this present day: essential oils. What are essential oils? They are not the same as perfume or fragrance oils, some of which are artificially created or contain artificial substances. Essential oils contain the true essence of the plant from which the oil is derived. Often, an essential oil does not have an oily feeling because it is a liquid generally distilled from a plant's leaves, stems, flowers, bark or roots. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a long way. Mr. Vertolli cited key components within O24™'s US-patented proprietary blend of essential oils may be the reasons why this topical pain reliever has been quickly and widely accepted. In the case of the 1,8-cineole, also known as eucalyptol, recent clinical research has demonstrated the molecule's efficacy in reducing inflammation and pain, and in promoting leukemia cell death. In southeastern Asia, cineole-rich oil is a well-known remedy for the discomfort of bruises, sprains, and pulled muscles. Many use cineole-rich oil to stimulate blood circulation near the point of application. Four components of the US-patented O24™ pain relief product contain cineole: white camphor, eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint. “Cineole is only one of many constituents of O24™ that have scientifically documented anti-inflammatory action," said Vertolli, “The action of this product is a result of the synergistic interaction of hundreds of chemical constituents. Cineole may be an important one, but it is inaccurate to suggest that it is the only constituent that is important." Other important constituents include camphor (white camphor, eucalyptus, rosemary), pinene (eucalyptus, rosemary, white camphor), menthol (peppermint, white camphor), limonene (lemon, sweet orange, eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint), menthone (peppermint), carnosol (rosemary), linalool (sweet orange, rosemary, lemon), geraniol (sweet orange, lemon), anthraquinone glycosides (aloe), and dozens of others. Not a Placebo Components within the essential oils have long been recognized to alleviate pain. Some people might wonder whether the benefits of O24™ are psychologically induced. That's what skeptics call the 'placebo effect.' In other words, O24™'s fast-acting and long-lasting efficacy tends to leave some consumers with the thought: "Was it O24™ or did it make me feel better because I believed it would work?" That's called the placebo effect. Scientifically, there are molecular reasons why components within O24™'s essential oils quickly bring about pain relief and then extend the relief for longer than one might expect from a topical analgesic. Most topicals contain either capsaicin, often derived from chili peppers, or salicyclates. The former create a numbing effect and has historically used as an animal deterrent - added to bird seed to prevent squirrels from eating it. A new form is being proposed as a paint additive for boats to repel barnacles. There are also formulations for keeping dogs, cats and raccoons out of garbage areas. Dozens of arthritic creams incorporate capsaicin for relief from arthritic pains. Unfortunately, it may just provide those suffering from pain a distraction as opposed to effectively reducing inflammation. Salicyclates, on the other hand, inhibit prostaglandin and thromboxane release. As with all non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, they bring about an analgesic impact on the body when topically applied. They work in the same way as aspirin does and attempt to provide a similar relief from pain, but on a topical level. Both tend to give all topical pain relievers a bad name. With the addition of mineral oils, creams, paraffin or other additives (water, alcohol, glycerin or another binding agent), its pain-relieving properties can be diluted. This tends to explain why the scientific community denigrates topicals as an effective solution to pain. Medical doctors shy away from the general body of topical analgesics because relief is fleeting, or lead their patients to believe it is a “placebo effect." Yet various forms of vapor rubs, to relieve the pains of congested chests and sinuses, have sold throughout the world for decades. Such brand names, or their generics, have been doctor recommended for as long a time. Many have active ingredients that include camphor, eucalyptus oil and menthol and carry the phrase, topical analgesic, on their labels. How do these differ from the O24™ brand? Because many topical pain relievers contain some synthetic binding agent, its additives interfere with the deep penetrating and healing actions reportedly found in the essential oils. O24™ is different because its patented process does not require binding agents such as alcohol or other ingredients. Because O24™ is in a purer form than other topical relievers, many users have reported that the O24™ brand works faster to relieve their pains and provides a longer-lasting relief from their aches and pains. The dramatic impact O24™ has had on those suffering from acute or chronic pain can be quite puzzling. Some have announced, "It's a miracle!" Many are bewildered as to why O24™ can effectively and consistently produce relief from pain, and it is often easier to question the pain relief. Understanding the mechanism of why O24™ works may help dismiss the inherent, and expected, skepticism many have (until they actually try it for themselves). Inhibiting Prostaglandin and Thromboxane Synthesis There are specific components within the essential oils, which parallel the actions of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. This requires a brief overview of how aspirin, aspirin-like drugs (such as the class of COX-1 inhibitors: ibuprofen, naproxen) and the COX-2 inhibitors (generically the coxibs sold as brand names: Vioxx®, Celebrex® and Bextra®) impact the body. Those with arthritis or rheumatism may be familiar with prostaglandins. These are pain mediators in the human body, and are found in nearly all tissues and organs. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances, a group of lipid compounds derived from fatty acids. They are produced from a precursor molecule called arachidonic acid by cyclooxygenases (COX-1 and COX-2). The arachidonic acid pathway is one of the main pain - and inflammation-producing mechanisms. Not only are the prostaglandins produced, but so are thromboxane and the leukotrienes (which cause asthma symptoms). While prostaglandins participate in the contraction and relaxation of smooth muscles, the dilation and contraction of blood vessels, the control of blood pressure and the modulation of inflammation, thromboxane (A2) is involved in the constriction of vascular and respiratory smooth muscles. Discovered in 1971 that aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories could inhibit the enzyme cyclooxygenase, biochemist Sir John Vane and his colleagues won the 1982 Nobel Prize in Medicine. Their research demonstrated that the potency of the anti-inflammatory medicines were proportional to how well they performed as COX-1 inhibitors. But, they also discovered that cyclooxygenase inhibition led to toxic side effects: non-steroidal anti-inflammatories cause erosive gastritis and renal toxicity. “Wonder drugs," such as celecoxib and rofecoxib, were designed to prevent gastric bleeding (gastric bleeding reportedly causes more than 16,000 deaths annually and has been called a “silent epidemic"). The COX-2 inhibitors are said to interfere with the prostaglandin production process. This restraining action is what made COX-2 inhibitors popular. By hindering prostaglandin synthesis, someone in chronic pain was able to alleviate his or her suffering. Unfortunately, because of the recent controversy surrounding the COX-2 class, such as Vioxx®, Celebrex® and Bextra®, many arthritis sufferers have returned to the COX-1 inhibitors (gastric bleeding that reportedly results in more than 100,000 hospitalizations annually)mon COX-1 inhibitors are probably found in your medicine cabinet: ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin. In Vertolli's research into why O24™ works, he found evidence suggesting that constituents within several of the essential oils inhibit prostaglandin synthesis. He wrote, "Anthraquinones, the primary active constituents in oil-based extracts of whole aloe leaf, reduce inflammation by dilating local blood vessels via inhibition of thromboxane and prostaglandin synthesis." He also noted menthol, which is found in numerous topical pain relievers, and is a major component of peppermint essential oil. Vertolli wrote, "Menthol produces analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects by inhibition of prostaglandin, thromboxane and leukotriene synthesis. It also increases local circulation by dilating the blood cells." Vertolli is very enthusiastic about the rosemary essential oil in O24™. Rarely is it found in a pain relief product, which is odd because of clinical research on the anti-inflammatory action of a main constituent, carnosol, discussed earlier in this article. He explained, “Rosemary reduces inflammation by protecting blood vessels, blood cells, and blood fats from oxidative stress. It also reduces inflammation and pain by inhibition of complement proteins. Rosemary essential oil improves local circulation by dilating the blood vessels (relaxing the smooth muscles that line the blood vessels) and reduces tissue swelling by reducing capillary leakage." Blood leakage physically manifests itself as a bruise on the skin. Dr. Allan N. Fields, Swiss Medica’s medical spokesman, has recommended O24™ for bruises, as a mean to reduce swelling and to accelerate the recovery period. Finally, Vertolli returns to cineole, which he calls a “fairly strong constituent" and is found in white camphor, eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint. Vertolli also writes, "I specifically focused on the analgesic, anti-inflammatory, relaxant and antispasmodic properties because that is what the product is being used for. I am confident you would find that O24™ might reduce congestion in the nasal passages and lungs if applied to the chest. It might even help relieve tension headaches if massaged on the temples, although it is premature to recommend the use of O24™ for headaches."
Bacteria in your colon are referred to by many different names – probiotics, good or bad bacteria, beneficial bacteria, acidophilus, disbiosis, micro flora, proflora. friendly flora, and unfriendly bacteria. I simple use good and bad bacteria to refer to all the bacteria that exist in the small intestine and your colon. Your colon has both good and bad bacteria. The good bacteria maintain the health of your colon by keeping the bad bacteria from multiplying and reducing constipation. Most people have bad bacteria as the dominant condition in their colon. You can see this by the illnesses that exist throughout the world. Most people later in their life suffer from diseases that resulted from colon neglect and abuse. Bad bacteria multiples when you, * Consume poisons such as pollution, pesticides, food additives such as preservatives, coloring, so on. * Drink alcohol * Eat processed foods * Have excess anxiety * Lack fiber in your diet * Use birth control pills * Use drugstore laxative * Use drugs and medication Good bacteria in your colon consists of hundred of species of bacteria. The good bacteria are most active in a pH of 5.9 to 6.9- an acidic environment. This makes for a healthy colon. Your colon serves as a home for the good bacteria, which ferment specific carbohydrates, which in turn keep your colon environment slightly acidic. The acid environment favors the good bacteria and keeps the bad bacteria and pathogens from multiplying. The bad bacteria create an alkaline environment and are most active in a pH of 7.1 to 7.9 Again, the good bacteria creates an acidic environment and are most active in a pH of 5.9 to 6.9 Acidophilus and Bifidus are the main good bacteria that exist in your colon. The ascending colon, on the right side of your abdomen area, has the most bacteria. The quantity of bacteria becomes less in the transverse colon and lesser in the descending colon. Eventually, little bacteria is found in the sigmoid and rectum. When good beneficial bacteria is dominant, in your colon, it prevents the spread of disease from various organisms – parasites, bacteria, viruses, fungi. The specific organisms Shigella, salmonella, viruses, encephalitis, protozoan, amebas, staph, herpes, flu, cold viruses, comphylobacter, and CMV, are the ones that creates killer diseases such as dysentery, blood poisoning, meningitis, pneumonia, influenza and encephalitis The good bacteria keep these organisms in the minority, thus preventing them from multiplying, getting into the blood, and into the different body organs. They do this by their antibiotic like secretions, lactic acid production, and other secretions, which keep their environment acidic. The good bacteria live and thrive on carbohydrates. When your body has good digestion and little carbohydrates reach your colon, the good bacteria population decreases and the bad bacteria become dominant. Good bacteria need to be fed to keep it dominant in your colon. If there are any good bacteria left in your colon, then by feeding them, you can get them to multiply. If there are not any good bacteria in your colon, then you cannot reestablish the good bacteria by eating specific carbohydrate foods. To reestablish good bacteria, under this condition, you must do a flora enema. In his book, Acidophilus and Colon Health, 1999, David Webster, also says, “Indicators of a healthy colon flora are a soft but well-formed stool, with amber color and little or no odor, and that floats in water most of the time. When the stools are dry, dark brown, too solidly formed or too loose, and especially if there is a putrid odor, these are clear indicators of a putrefactive, alkaline-producing colon flora. Chronic constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome are often eliminated when your colon is restored and maintained at a slightly acid pH.” In his research, Webster found that feeding the remaining good bacteria edible lactose whey rejuvenates the good bacteria in your colon. By drinking 2 – 5 tablespoons or more each day in a cup of distilled water enough lactose can reach your colon to feed the good bacteria. Webster recommends doing this for 30 days. After this period you can check your stools to see if you have reactivated you good bacteria
Colon Cleanse Colon cleansing uses natural health & herbs to help your body to heal health problems which are often related to a colon which is not functioning as nature intended. More and more people are suffering from health problems, including pain, constipation and lack of energy which can be related to a dirty bowel. The most important cleanse to do is colon cleansing, because if you have a dirty colon with impacted fecal matter, this will create extra toxins which the other organs then have to continually cleanse and detox. The #1 CANCER AMONG MEN AND WOMEN TOGETHER IS COLON CANCER. The person on a typical Western Diet holds 8 meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon. Everyone would greatly benefit with doing a full Colon Cleanse at least once per year, with ongoing colon maintenance when necessary. It is recommended that Parasite Cleanse be taken at the same time as the Colon Cleanse. For optimum health, our objective should be to cleanse not only the colon, but all of the vital inner organs as well. One of the most frequent bowel problems that people experience today is constipation. Constipation is generally attributed to a low fiber diet and lack of sufficient water, which cause our fecal matter to become condensed and compressed. A good cleansing program should always begin by removing the waste in your colon, the last portion of your food processing chain. If you attempt to clean your liver, blood, or lymph system without first addressing a waste filled bowel, the excreted toxins will only get recycled back into your body. The longer your body is exposed to putrefying food in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Even with one bowel movement per day, you will still have at least three meals worth of waste matter putrefying in your colon at all times. On top of all this, your system can also become continuously self-polluting by the poisonous gases that are caused by foods you don't tolerate. These poisonous gases can enter your bloodstream, irritating your organs and joints. Bran and raw vegetables are so rich in fibrous bulk that they cannot get through the tiny holes remaining for passage of feces in most colons. Instead they back up, fester and contribute further to the problem. There is only one good way to clean yourself out and that is by cleansing your colon. Natural Cleansing Products Herbal colon cleansing may decrease the risks of developing certain health problems. Many people who are affected by a health condition have found that cleansing can help their body rejuvenate itself naturally. The body's immune system is the first line of defense against almost all infections and diseases. If your body has a strong immune system you will be less prone to infection. The immune system is made up of a vast system of lymphatic channels and lymph nodes. Detoxing your body and your colon with the right herbs and supplements is an all natural way to remove unwanted toxins and heavy metals from lymphatic system improving the overall immune system. Toxins from air, food and water tend to accumulate in your body over time. Your liver, colon, small intestines, pancreas, kidneys, gallbladder, spleen and lymph nodes work in harmony and in balance to eliminate these toxins. Cleansing with Fibre Fibre plays an essential role in maintaining the health of the digestive system, and adequate fibre in the diet has significant value in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and other ailments. Fibre cleanses the digestive tract and enhances its function. Metabolised by intestinal bacteria into substances that prevent colon cancer, fibre dilutes and speeds the removal of carcinogens and other toxins in foods so that they spare the delicate lining of the GI tract. Fibre helps achieve optimal blood sugar control and cholesterol levels by slowing digestion and maximising cholesterol excretion. Benefits of Colon Cleansing and Liver Detoxification • colon cleanse and liver detox products increase energy • colon cleanse and liver detox improves digestion • colon cleanse and liver detox result in clearer skin complexions • colon cleanse and liver detox improve circulation • colon cleanse and liver detox increase mental alertness • colon cleanse and liver detox support weight maintenance • colon cleanse and liver detox balance the function of vital cleansing organs • colon cleanse and liver detox strengthen your immune system
: Do you believe that there are such things as past lives? Do you think that you may have lived before? Is it part of your religion, or completely against it? What I believe is not important in this article, and of course it is up to you to think whatever you want to think or believe with regard to the existence of past lives. I will not do past life regression as a kind of therapy, on purpose. By this I mean that I will not conduct a past life regression simply because a potential client requests the therapy. From time to time, I will have someone call our office wanting to receive Past Life Regression Therapy (PLRT) for a fear of snakes, a relationship problem or some other issue. When I meet with them I will ask these potential clients how they know that the problem was caused by something in a past life. Usually the answer goes like this, "well I cannot imagine what else could have caused it. I do not remember anything in this life that could have caused it. So it must have been something that happened in a past life." Proceed with caution if you run into such a situation. Our client is simply doing the best she can to try and understand what might be causing her problem. And who can fault her? She is unaware of anything in her personal history that would indicate where the problem came from, nothing she can consciously remember anyway. On the other hand, any hypnotherapist who has experience using hypnotic age regression techniques can tell you that it is common for the client to uncover material of which she was not consciously aware, but which is important to the origin of a particular issue or problem. The National Guild of Hypnotist training covers the concept of hypermnesia and the process of hypnotic age regression in their certification training materials. It has been well documented that by merely taking a client into the state of hypnosis, that an individual can experience an improvement in the ability to recall events from her past. Furthermore, in the somnambulistic state an individual can experience a hypnotic age regression, and can relive past events. This reliving of a past event is called revivification. This revivification is a "true age regression" and is a re-experiencing of the event, including all of the associated sensations: touch, taste, sight, smells and hearing. In an age regression, all (or nearly all) of the information associated with the event can be uncovered (recalled). Age regression is the "Royal High Road of Therapy" because it can quickly uncover the cause of a problem and provide powerful insights leading to rapid healing of old issues and problems. When a client attempts to understand or to deal with a problem without hypnosis, she is using only the conscious mind. Because the conscious mind tries to come up with a reason for the problem based on incomplete information, it is likely that the conclusions are often wrong, especially if the problem has been a difficult, long-standing issue in your client's life. This brings us back to the client who thinks that her problem comes from an event in a past life. Unless this individual has an ability that most of us seem unable to exhibit (the ability to have knowledge about our past lives while in the conscious state), then such conclusions are likely flawed. So, it is important that you as a therapist not be misled by it too. Few if any hypnotherapists have the ability to look at someone and know that a particular problem came from a past life. So it would be in error to engage in PLRT or any kind of therapy based on a guesswork. Furthermore, it would be inadvisable to suggest a kind of therapy because the therapist or client may find it enjoyable or interesting to do that kind of work. Unfortunately, many PLRT sessions are conducted for just such reasons. In my opinion doing PLRT under those conditions is unethical. I believe that it is unethical because you must certainly avoid leading your client when doing hypnotherapy. Hypnosis by definition is a state of heightened suggestibility, and if you suggest to a client that she regress to a past life "where this problem began," you are leading your client, which can result in a confabulation. A confabulation occurs when the subconscious mind makes things up, or "fills in the blanks" where information is not available based on real life experience. Here is another reason that I suggest that you do not do PLRT (on purpose). Within the philosophies associated with the different faiths that include the concept of having lived more than one life, is the concept of karma. For these people, it is believed that we have a karmic debt that needs to be repaid. Or, at least that we have something to learn which requires more than one existence, and that it is for that reason that we enter into life after life. >From this point of view, we came into this life because we have issues that we need to work on. Most of the clients that I work with are adults over the age of thirty. Logic suggests that if someone came into this life in order to work on some issue left over from a previous existence, then the experiences needed to be able to do that work would come up in this life. The fact that your client has sought out your services to work on a particular issue indicates that the issue has probably come up. Thus, it makes sense that you would most likely not need to conduct a hypnotic age regression to a past life in order to work on this issue. In the vast majority of the cases that I have seen where my client wanted PLRT, hypnotic age regression successfully uncovered an Initial Sensitizing Event (ISE) in this life. (The ISE is the event which is the genesis of the problem.) A thorough examination of an ISE involves uncovering compelling evidence that before the event, the problem did not exist. For example, before the event, the child (client in the regressed state) was a normal happy child, and after the event she was sad or frightened, insecure or whatever the emotion or belief that was associated with the issue. Now, on the other hand: I will, and have purposely conducted past life regression sessions for reasons other than therapeutic ones. For example, if a client comes in to my office and requests that I conduct a past life regression session for her because she just wants to have the experience or for spiritual development, I am happy to do so. These kinds of past life regression sessions can often be very fruitful and beneficial for my clients, often providing inspiration, self-understanding, insight and spiritual renewal. The key here is that we are not conducting therapy based on the assumption that a problem or issue started in an unknown past life. I never conduct Past Life Regression Therapy sessions (on purpose). However, you might be surprised after reading this far to learn that I also believe that there is a time in which I consider conducting a past life regression for therapy appropriate. This happens when the past life regression occurs spontaneously, without any suggestion from the Hypnotherapist that the client regress to a past life. I have conducted approximately a thousand hypnotic age regression sessions, and I have encountered cases where, without suggestion from me, some of those clients have regressed to a "past life" or had an experience which can only be described as a past life regression. The percentage is low, averaging about one to two percent among the hypnotherapists working at our Center. During these spontaneously occurring past life regressions, your client may experience being a different gender or race. It will be obvious that she is not the same person who came into your office. Interestingly, the event that she is experiencing in the past life will be associated with the problem she came into see me for. For example, a client may seek services to overcome a fear of water, and in the past life regression she may relive an experience of drowning at sea. (Since this is not an article on how to conduct a past life regression or how do PLRT, I will not go into the process of how to do PLRT. That would require a series of articles or a book dedicated to the topic.) As a professional Hypnotherapist, you need to be aware that if you conduct more age regression sessions, it becomes increasingly more likely that you will encounter a spontaneous past life regression. It does not matter what your view on the issue is. So, it is the responsibility for each hypnotherapist to establish in his or her mind, how the situation will be handled in advance. If you are trained in doing past life regression work, then when a spontaneous past life regression occurs, it will be no problem for you. However, if you are not trained in conducting PLRT, be cautious. Our first concern for our clients is that we do not harm them in any way. Handling a spontaneous past life regression unprofessionally could certainly do so. This is why I recommend that you decide (based on your beliefs and principles) whether or not you will conduct a PLRT session if one occurs spontaneously. If you decide that you would like to be able to provide PLRT to your clients, then seek out appropriate hypnosis training[cdb1] . If you decide that you will not provide PLRT, then you owe it to your clients to respect their beliefs and what they may have experienced in the hypnosis session. Find someone that you can trust and feel good about using as a referral source in such cases. I know of a hypnotherapist who informed his client that she was mentally ill because she spontaneously experienced a past life regression during her hypnosis session with him. In this case the hypnotherapist was a psychiatrist in Sweden. In my view, how he handled his patient was unethical and careless. His patient is a family member of mine. Years later, she related to me how fearful this made her feel. Because of what he had said to her, she believed that she was "going crazy." She was particularly vulnerable to this psychiatrist's suggestion of mental illness because of his credentials and because of the emotional problems that she was experiencing at the time, which led to her seeing the psychiatrist. The diagnostic manuals that I know of (i. e., DMS-IV) do not have a criterion for diagnosing mental illness because of an individual's belief in past lives, or because such an experience was produced during hypnosis. In the event that you have a client experience a spontaneous past life regression and you have decided that you will not conduct PLRT, I suggest that you need to emerge your client and inform her that she has had an experience in which you have had no training, but you know someone that is trained in that area and you can refer her to that therapist if she wishes. So, I do not conduct PLRT sessions on purpose, but I do them from time to time. I conduct PLRT when a past life experience spontaneously occurs during the course of hypnotic age regression therapy. Such spontaneously occurring past life regressions are rare in my experience. However, as you continue to practice the "Royal High Road of Therapies" you increase the probability that eventually one will occur during one of your age regression sessions. Be prepared so that you can make use of it if you wish to conduct PLRT, and have a referral source at hand if you do not intend to offer this service. This way you can always be respectful of your client's beliefs and experiences. Calvin D.

Everyone experiences back pain at some time in their life. In fact, it is in the top three complaints that people bring to the doctor’s office. In most cases there is soft tissue inflammation, muscle spasms, or degenerative arthritis. These respond well to conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medicines, stretches, and osteopathic manipulative therapy. Physical modalities such as heat or cold, massage, and acupuncture are also helpful. So when should you worry? Any loss of bowel or bladder control needs immediate attention. Surgery can release the pressure on the nerves and full function usually returns. The longer the loss of bladder or bowel control continues without treatment, the higher the risk of permanent damage. This also includes weakness of any muscles in the legs or feet. Plus you can reduce the risks of falls and fractures. Contrary to popular opinion, a thorough history, neurological and structural exams, plus basic X-rays of the spine can diagnose the problem 80-90% of the time. Expensive MRI studies certainly can be helpful looking at the cross-sections of the spine into the discs and spinal cord. But, in most cases it will not change the eventual conservative treatment anyway. Consider an MRI if surgery is likely. Certainly if there is no improvement in your symptoms after several weeks or there is worsening of your pain. Besides the obvious causes of low back pain from muscle spasms, degenerative discs and osteoarthritis, chronic structural imbalances play a major role. Wear and tear to the spine from old trauma, sports, and obesity cause the discs to lose their cushioning ability. They also may bulge or protrude backwards. Over 50 years of age almost everyone has changes I the discs loosing height and acquiring some bone spurs. However, not everyone has pain. Again, unless the nerve root coming out of the spinal cord or the spinal cord itself is squeezed, surgery will not help. Even radiating leg pain called sciatica along with numbness and tingling in the legs can go away over time with proper treatment that includes osteopathic manipulation therapy. Studies show that back pain sufferers who have surgery have no better pain relief or function than those who didn’t have surgery after five years passed. Certainly if surgery is recommended it is wise to get a second opinion.

The Yin-Yang symbol is a result of the Chinese Philosophy in regards to how the universe functions. The black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies called "Yin" and "Yang"; they are not completely black or white nor can they exist without each other. The curve of the symbol reminds us of the constant change of balance between yin and yang, which represent all the opposite principles one finds in the universe. The Yellow Emperor said, ''The principle of Yin and Yang is the foundation of the entire universe. It underlies everything in creation.” Yin, the darker element, is passive, dark, feminine, moist, death, small, and corresponds to the night; yang, the brighter element, is active, light, masculine, dry, birth, large and corresponds to the day. The cyclical nature of Yin and Yang mean several things to a student of Chinese medicine and philosophy: All phenomena change into their opposites in an eternal cycle of reversal. Since one principle produces the other, all phenomena have within them the seeds of their opposite state. For example, sickness has the seeds of health and health contains the seeds of sickness. Even though an opposite may not appear to be present, nothing is completely devoid of its opposite state. Traditional Chinese Medicine applies the philosophies of Yin Yang to treat disease. When the body is in balance between Yin and Yang, health is predominant; when Yin and Yang are imbalanced, disease occurs. According to Chinese medicine texts, diseases caused by yang pathogens usually present themselves with heat symptoms while diseases caused by yin pathogens usually present themselves with cold symptoms. Efforts to diagnose Yin or Yang pathogens result in intake forms with questions such as, “Do you prefer hot or cold drinks?” or “What is your optimal time of day?” Once a Chinese medicine doctor has determined the nature of an imbalance, he or she aims to restore balance through a variety of approaches such as acupuncture, herbs, and recommended changes in diet or lifestyle. As balance is restored in the body, so is health.
Have you ever felt feverish and decided to go to bed with a hot bowl of soup? Does your preference for dessert depend on the numbers shown on your bathroom scale? Well, then you have been listening to your body! Depending upon the readings on the thermometer, you decided to opt for hot soup (which supplies fluids) and rest. The figures on your bathroom scales tell you whether you should take that extra serving of strawberry cake or not. Well, then you are not new to biofeedback. Although you may not know it, you have been trying to ‘improve your health by reading the signals your body is sending you’. This is biofeedback. When doctors, physiotherapists and even ordinary people use signals from the patient’s body to decide the course of their treatment, they are relying on biofeedback. In biofeedback, electronic instruments enable doctors to monitor the activities of the body – both physical as well as psychological. Clinicians have sensitive machines that can easily ‘see’ or ‘hear’ inside the bodies of patients. It is not uncommon to come across people who are very confused about their own symptoms, aches and pains. These machines can detect the internal activities of a person with far greater precision than the patient himself can. For patients the ‘biofeedback machine’ acts like a kind of sixth-sense that guides them to the true workings of their bodies. According to the readings given by the machine the biofeedback therapist makes internal adjustments. This information is valuable and often proves crucial when it comes to choosing modes of treatment. The therapist is almost like a football coach, waiting on the sidelines and giving instructions to patients on how to improve performance. When biofeedback first made its appearance, doctors had high hopes – probably these were too high to be realistic. They hoped that biofeedback would one day give us so much control over our bodies that we could simply ‘will’ ourselves to good health. A patient could then avoid taking medicines. Today, scientists and doctors have more reasonable and realistic expectations. Biofeedback can help in the treatment of many diseases. It can drastically reduce post-operative pain. Disorders of the digestive system, cardiac arrhythmias, blood pressure variations, epilepsy, migraine and stress-related head aches and paralysis – these can be treated using biofeedback. Biofeedback often aims at changing habitual reactions to incidents that trigger stress. Stress and our reaction to it is often the underlying cause of pain or disease. With most patients, biofeedback is a kind of skill training where patients listen in on their bodies and learn techniques that help them to avert stress or pain. Physicians, psychiatrists, dentists, physiotherapists and even nurses are increasingly relying on biofeedback. Biofeedback produces amazing results when it is combined with other treatment techniques. Since it is a non-invasive and painless process, biofeedback is a valuable option. Patients can be taught about factors that trigger attacks (as in the case of epilepsy and migraine) and what they have to do to manage, reduce or eliminate the symptoms. Biofeedback is very effective for chronic benign problems. With this therapy, long term medications become a thing of the past and mid-night visits to the emergency room become a rarity. What’s best of all – NO more side effects!
But that sensation won't last too long! People are surprised to find that acupuncture is relatively painless. Whilst the needle is penetrating the skin, there could be in a slight sensation of pain, but this is not usual. Sometimes, but not often, there could be an electric, "shooting" sensation if a nerve is hit. Sometimes, a sharp sensation if the needle is in the vicinity of a vein, or artery. If this happens this is the possibility of a small bruise in that the adjacent area, but this is really of little consequence, compared with the many attributes and advantages of acupuncture. I one of the reasons for lack of pain, is because our needles are very fine, only about twice the fitness of a human hair. Totally unlike the hypodermic needles used in conventional medicine to inject liquids or take a sample of blood. These are hollow and of course have a greater bore than acupuncture needles. Ours are solid, flexible and much, much thinner. Patients are often very surprised at how flexible the acupuncture needle is and wonder that it can penetrate the skin and underlying flesh in a straight line. Because of the tiny diameter of the needles and the skill of the acupuncturist, this is not difficult. It is possible to penetrate much harder material, than the human skin, with one of these needles, without bending it. Acupuncture is a very safe and mostly comfortable, form of effective, alternative medicine. Any discomfort that may occur on an occasional basis is more than made up for by its therapeutic activity. The word 'acupuncture' comes from two Latin words: 'acus', meaning 'needle' and 'punctura', meaning 'to penetrate'. Thus, the word 'acupuncture' means 'to penetrate with a needle'. Acupuncture, is a potent and efficacious, alternative to many of the treatments of western medicine, Acupuncture hails from China. Its origin goes back several thousand years. It is based on the premise, that there are energy patterns, or energy flows, throughout the body and these are necessary to maintain health and well-being of the organism. He is when these energy flows are disturbed that people become sick. Acupuncture often restores the body's balance of these meridians and corrects the energy flow. A treatment of acupuncture normally lasts from 30 to 40 minutes and is very relaxing. A number of very fine needles, usually 1 to to 10, are inserted in specific spots on the skin. These are called acupuncture points. There are a often matched with organs of the body. Almost all acupuncture points lie along acupuncture meridians although there are several off meridian points which are utilised by the experienced acupuncturist. And each acupuncture point can treat many diseases, as it influences many organs of the body. Acupuncture has also been used in animals to great effect. If you own a beloved animal, try acupuncture. Seek out the veterinarian who uses alternative medicine and who may also use such other natural aids, as homeopathy, herbalism and aromatherapy, etc, on animals. You might be surprised by the beneficial results, on your precious four legged friends. Using alternative medicine in animals is even more convincing, as there cannot be any suspicion of the 'placebo' effect, which is sometimes found in humans, who are taking medicaments.
There's a lot of buzz and hype going around about zeolite, but is it really as great as people are saying it is? I'll admit, I was skeptical too at first. I mean, this product was claiming to help all sorts of health problems, including a huge one that we all face on a daily basis... which you'll read about below. After I read the boatloads of testimonials, scientific evidence, and tried it out for myself though, my skepticism vanished. I believe that more people need to be told about the truths of zeolite, which is why I'll be going over the key points and facts about it in the rest of this article. So what's the big problem that I was talking about? Toxins. Right now, there are an estimated 100,000 toxins chemicals floating around in our environment, about 25% of which have been known to be cancer-causing. Pretty shocking, right? The fact of the matter is, we are being more and more exposed to these toxins everyday. Whether it be from fluoride and other various chemicals the water we drink, the pesticides in our food, or simply the air we breathe, we definitely have a big problem on our hands here. A lot of these toxins, like mercury for example, just linger around in our bodies. Day by day and year by year they continue to accumulate. Medical research suggests that as these toxins build up, they can possibly reek havoc on the immune system, hormone balance, enzyme activity, brain function, and cell growth. Not only that, but they can possibly lead to diseases like cancer down the road. I mean, have you actually thought about how prevalent cancer is in our society now? About one in two men and one in three women will develop it in their lifetime. These lingering toxins and other impurities floating around in our bodies may be the culprit. I don't know about you, but I sure as heck don't want my life being ruined by a bunch of invisible toxic pests... especially if there was something I could do about it. That's where cellular zeolite comes in... First of all, all this zeolite talk isn't new. It isn't just a big fad that has been conjured up out of nowhere, and I'll tell you why. For many years, centuries actually, zeolite has been used by people all over the world to achieve higher levels of health. So why haven't you heard about it until now? Well, quite frankly, there's a lot of natural health remedies we never hear about in the mainstream. Consider yourself lucky. Anyway, what cellular zeolite does is basically trap toxins and other heavy metals in its honeycomb-like "cages". Since it's one of the few negatively charged particles in nature, it works at the cellular level much like a magnet. All those nasty impurities and toxins get sucked in, trapped, and then flushed out. And guess what? There are no real side effects except for minor dehydration. A few glasses of water a day solves that real quick. So how can you get a hold of some? Well, originally, I personally was going to get some powdered zeolite, but found out that was a big no-no. Turns out, a lot of the powdered forms have already attracted some toxins from nature and haven't been cleansed to remove them. So I searched around the net quite extensively and found a product called 'Natural Cellular Defense'. The zeolite in Natural Cellular Defense is cleansed and "activated" using a patented process that scientists developed. I don't know the exact procedure, but I do know that it completely removes any impurities from the zeolite molecule and makes it up to 20x more potent. The best part? It's liquid based and extremely convenient. All I do is put some drops in a water bottle, drink it throughout the day, and I'm good to go. Yes, I do have more energy, more focus, more/better sleep, and quite frankly, I just feel great. But that's not the best part. The best part is knowing that my body is clean and I don't have a bunch of junk floating around in it. To know that I have a solid footing against the toxins I'm continually exposed to, and that I'm going to (hopefully:) have a very long and healthy life ahead of me. That's the best part. I've told tons of people about zeolite and have only gotten more and more positive comments. It's a great feeling knowing that not only have I helped myself, but other people as well. I hope you'll have the same feeling in the future and that this article has aided you in some way. Want more info? Check out one of the links below. If you want to get a hold of some, it's just a few clicks away. All the best!"
