An Operating Manual for the Human?

MAN bookThese days everything comes with a operating manual that explains how to use the item, how to care for it, and who to call if you are experiencing a problem with it.  But alas, humans are not provided with such a manual!  So, what to do?

Well, short of writing your own manual, we just have to learn how our bodies speak to us, and what it is saying.  You see, better than a manual that you must actually read, the human body gives us signs when maintenance is required (kinda like some modern cars).  The trick is to understand what these message are and how to interpret them.

One obvious message is PAIN!  Well this serves it’s purpose, but wouldn’t it be nice to have known way ahead of time that the pain in your kidney was due to a stone?!  If you did, you could have done something about it and prevented the stone, and the PAIN!

One such method is to look at the tongue, it has a lot of information about what’s going on in the body,

tongue-twistersas you can see in the image below, according to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM):

tongue-chartOther areas include the eyes, the face, the ears, the fingernails, live and dried blood samples,and the fine lines on the bottom of the feet!

The crease in the ear lobe may indicate cardio issue

All these parts of the body can tell us what the body is dealing with, most without any symptoms.  They can also show us what genetic weakness we have so we know what to pay attention to BEFORE we develop symptoms!

The top 2 images are of the blood.  The top pic is normal, the next is a condition called rouleau, where the cells tack up like a roll of coins.  This makes it hard for the cells to get through the capillaries! There are MANY indications in the blood!

The fingernail picture shows a woman who only has “moons” on her thumbnail.  You should have them on all fingers, except for the pinkies.  This indicates a circulatory issue in the extremities.

The bottom of the feet will show fine lines that are not due to creases, and will indicate what organs are experiencing difficulties. It can show the presence of parasites as well.

The spots colors and patterns all have a meaning.

The eye is also a wealth of info.  The iris shows information (spots and shapes) regarding the genetic tendencies as well as issues due to stress.  The sclera (whites of the eye) express their info in the red lines.  Where they are located and how they are shaped tell us things that are currently going on.

An indication in one part may not show much,  however if multiple areas point to the same issue, you can almost be sure that  something should be done to mitigate it!

So, we can see that the body gives us a wealth of information regarding it’s status, that we can “read” and act on to give us the best health possible. These are some of the procedures that we use at our wellness center, to get people back on track to regaining heir health.  And we accomplish this without pharmaceuticals!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

breast cancer wareness

Oh please!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?  Like who is not aware of breast cancer?  We’ve been hearing about it for decades, and we still have not found a cure…but someone has made lot’s and lot’s of money!

According to http://www.breastcancer.org, currently the expectations of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer during her lifetime is 1 in 8!  That’s 12% of women.  About 40,000 women are expected to die in 2014 from breast cancer!  All that research and dollars spent over decades and we have found nothing to act as a cure?

1 in 8

I think they’re looking in the wrong places!  Like any other condition of the body, it’s much easier to prevent a “disease” than it is to “cure” one.  That’s because by the time you present with serious symptoms, you have had a problem for many years and it’s very ingrained!

Our bodies will handle just about any type of pathogen or imbalance all by itself, if it has the basic raw materials it requires to do the job (good clean nutrition, water and air).  If it can’t, it will give you a symptom to let you know that it needs some help!  If you take a drug to suppress the symptom,then your body creates another symptom, only stronger, to try and communicate that it desperately requires help! Sound familiar?

Breast cancer, like any other chronic condition, is caused by an imbalance in the body caused by toxins, poor nutrition, and poor lifestyle habits.  These are the areas where we will find the most promise for reducing the number of cases and deaths from cancer, and these are the areas that are mostly ignored because they won’t make anyone big bucks!

In our center we look at the whole body-mind-spirit to determine where the imbalances are and then proceed to re-balance you!  We utilize all the tools at our disposal, especially Thermography in the case of breast cancer.  We have had women come in saying they were diagnosed with a breast tumor by their mammogram, and after giving them a Thermography scan, there was actually nothing there!

When we were located in New Jersey we had a 72 year old woman who had a biopsy that was diagnosed as cancerous and the doctor told her that she MUST have a double mastectomy or basically…die!  The doctor was very persistent and called her a lot, greatly scaring her in the process!  We gave her a thermogram – nothing found!  She had another 3 months later, followed by two annuals and all turned up clear!  Had she followed the doctor’s advice she would probably be dead now, or at least be suffering from her surgery and possible followup of radiation and chemo.  (Our scans are read and analyzed by medical doctors trained in reading thermographic images)

One of the problems associated with breast cancer is that the primary medical screening used, (mammograms) utilize radiation.  Radiation is a well known cause of cancer, so eventually, after years of mammograms the doctor will find a cancer!  If a woman has taken 20 mammograms during her life, (not unusual) she would have received the same amount of radiation as if she had stood 1 mile from the Hiroshima bomb blast, because radiation is cumulative in the body!  Add to that all the radiation from other sources, the poor food we eat, and the toxic soup we live in, and we can quickly see why cancer is such a problem today!

You have to mitigate your exposure to toxins, give your body excellent food, water, air, and the correct supplementation, and just like magic your “symptoms” will disappear as your body takes over and cures itself!

The biggest problem today is the medical-industrial complex that is so prevalent that the public thinks there are no alternatives available.  Our main function in our center is to educate our clients to the fact that they do have choices, and they can be empowered to take back control of their own health!

Thyroid – Hypo and Autoimmune

thyroid-butterfly

There is a thyroid epidemic in this country (actually the world!), and most people, and even most doctors, are unaware of it.  If they are aware…they don’t know how to treat it correctly!

According the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist (AACE) 27 million suffer from a thyroid condition!  Some sources say that up to 90% of women, age 40 and up, have sub clinical Hypothyroid (symptomatic but undiagnosed). A leading thyroid doctor, Dr. Broda Barnes MD of the Broda Barnes Institute, says it’s 90% of American men and women!  WOW!

There are many symptoms of thyroid dysfunction including:

  • Weight gain that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise
  • Sleep problems and/or fatigue
  • Hot flashes
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Depression
  • Thinning of hair and/or loss of outer 1/3 of the eyebrows
  • Brain fog
  • Dry skin and/or thin and brittle nails
  • Infertility such as the hypothalmus
  • Constipation
  • AND ABOUT 300 MORE!

 

There are a number of factors involved including severe lack of iodine, but the main cause is Cellular Inflammation!

cell inflame

This is the inflammation of the cells’ membrane, and it is the root cause of ALL chronic illness.  The inflammation of the membrane  is caused by 3 major influences – Bad Fats, Sugar and Toxins!  Briefly, when the membrane is inflamed, the cell does not function correctly, and eventually dies.  Depending on what cells are involved will determine your doctor’s diagnoses.

In the case of the thyroid, it may not even be the gland itself.  Other glands and organs are involved such as the hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenals and even the liver!

Doctors often base their diagnosis on the lab tests they perform.  Usually the test does NOT look at the correct parameters and they base their results on TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), which, if good, they tell you that your  test came back OK and you’re fine!  But you still feel like crap!  This is called “treating the labs, not the patient.”

However, with Cellular Inflammation involved it could be the cell is unable to respond to the TSH or any other hormone!

Autoimmune comes into play because the body attacks the thyroid tissue (or any other tissue) because of the inflammation involved.

Yes, we consider thyroid dysfunction to be an epidemic!  Possibly the most undiagnosed epidemic in history!  (You’d think big pharma would try to sell us a vaccine for it!)  The trick is to find the ACTUAL CAUSE, and not just assume it’s the thyroid!  We do this in our wellness center, in a completely  non-invasive way!  Heal the cell and get well!

 

 

Sweet Poison

sugar

By now everyone knows that SUGAR is bad for you.  Well, maybe not everyone!  You see, the majority of the population has been under the spell of the propaganda being spewed forth about how sugar is really not that bad.  “It’s Natural”! “Got a problem with artificial sweeteners?  We use pure natural sugar in our soft drinks!”  Different poisons , same affect – POOR HEALTH!

The charts below illustrate some of the toxic effects of sugar and the artificial sweetener aspartame:

Effects of the artificial sweetener aspartame

If you read my post on CELLULAR INFLAMMATION you learned that there are three main things that cause it, toxins, bad fats and sugar.  Cellular inflammation (inflammation of the cell’s membrane) basically causes the cell not to function correctly and eventually die.

The inflamed membrane affects the cell’s ability to get rid of waste, absorb nutrients, and it’s receptors become blunted and non-functional, ultimately causing cell death.  Depending on which cells are affected, determines what disease you doctor will diagnose!  (That’s the reason the above charts seem to have unrelated diseases, but they all are affected by cells dying off).

An article written by Brad Chase in today’s NaturalNews.com explained a good three step process to break a sugar addiction!  First you make sure all your fruits a veggies are ORGANIC.  This produce tastes better, has a higher nutritional content, and contains slower-breaking-down complex carbs.  This is a key factor.

Secondly, if you consume pastries and cookies, you can substitute a whole grain bread and raw honey.  This is not the healthiest option, but it can help break the habit of the simple sugars in baked goods!  Again these are steps taken to break the addiction to sugar.

bread and honey

And thirdly if you are craving crunchy snacks use raw nuts and trail mixes as a substitute for chips, pretzels etc.  Nuts are a great source of nutrients, just make sure they are raw and organic.  If you want to “kick it up a notch”, soak the nuts and them dehydrate them.  This increases their digestibility and actually makes certain nuts taste better!  You can do a search for the simple process of doing this.

nuts

Before long, your “taste” for sugar will actually disappear, or be severely curtailed.  When I was a young man (about 100 years ago) I would put multiple (3 to 4) teaspoons of sugar in my coffee, now I drink it black!

You will also see many of your chronic symptoms disappear, and you will not get the annual bout with the flu!

And then you can take it further to other aspects of your environment, and deal with toxins and bad fats!

The FOOD Connection

Will eat for food

I’m on my third career in this life (holistic practitioner), and my last career played a major role in my decision to begin this one.  You see I was a Personal Chef for about ten years!  It was really a lot of fun!  I prepared meals for people’s evening dinners, did private dinner parties, cooking classes, cooking demos, even team-building exercises for corporations – anything with food.

Team Building

Team building BBQ for a large corporation.

I cooked for any type of diet including Macrobiotic, Vegan, and the Standard American Diet (SAD).  I even had a lot of clients that said “I don’t care, as long as it tastes good!”  The last one got me thinking!  Does food affect health?

YES!  A million times YES!  We were designed to get what our bodies need to survive, from our environment and FOOD.  Unfortunately the processed, genetically modified, toxin laden stuff they are selling to us shouldn’t even be called food!  It’s just a bunch of chemicals with trace amounts of food that have been processed to death!  Just pick up a box at the supermarket and start reading.

Reads like the chemistry set I had as a kid!

It’s really sad, and very dangerous to our health, but few make the connection between what they eat, and the health problems that they are suffering from.

We have many clients that come into our offices suffering from a variety of symptoms, and once we start doing our intake, we discover their poor eating habits.  When we explain that their diet has some major problems, some are confused.  They think if the food companies are “allowed” to sell it it must be good for us!  After all we have the FDA!  And unfortunately many of those clients actually refuse to change their food habits!

Our bodies’ integrity are being compromised by the food that we consume.  Our digestive systems are being destroyed, unable to break down the foreign ingredients.  You’ve heard the phrase “you are what you eat”, well that’s not really accurate anymore.  “You are what you digest!” is much more to the point!  If you can’t digest the food you eat, then you can’t get the nutrients form the food (even if they were there!).  And this results in chronic illness.

This crap that we are consuming (in place of real food) is at the root of ALL chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, just to name a few of the major ones.  These are environmental diseases for the most part, not caused by the usual pathogens or genetics.  They are caused by inflammation,  actually cellular inflammation to be exact, and there are three main causes of cellular inflammation – bad fats, sugar, and toxins!  All of which we get from the “foods” we are eating!  There was an interesting article on NaturalNews this morning – “Eighty percent of the packaged foods on our grocers shelves are banned in other countries” you can get the full article at:

We need to educate the general population on the need to eat well!  So to improve your health, start eating real, God-made-food, not the man made crap.  And unless you grow and raise your own food with organic methods, you will definitely need some quality supplementation.  That will go a long way to eliminating those nasty symptoms!  Also you will start to normalize your weight!

Add in some exercise and a spiritual component, and before long you won’t need any medicine at all!
