Why you need Arnica montana in your First Aid Kit, read more…..images-3

What is Arnica montana?

It is an alpine plant that has a “sunny” look.

Is it toxic in any way?  Yes, it is, but only if you take it in tincture form or apply to an open wound.  Some herbalists give small amounts of tincture out with a small dosage such as 1 drop per day, much like you get small dosages for Tylenol or Advil.

The very best way to take it, which is non-toxic, and completely safe is in its homeopathic form.  If you are not familiar with Homeopathy, you can read about how it was started and the way medicines are made to help you understand how the plant chemistry is diluted out using serial dilutions, while leaving the plant “hologram” or “energy” behind in the test tube.  This method of remedy preparation is called “Potentisation”.

Read about Homeopathy from this link:

History of Homeopathy & How Homeopathic Remedies Work.

Arnica is works by allowing increased blood flow to the area which allows oxygen and white cells to increase healing in bruised or swollen tissues and tissues with high amounts of lactic acid or anything else that will contribute to inflammation.  Thus it works well for concussions and in Homeopathy is the remedy of choice for this condition.  It is very important to actually see a practitioner who can help pick out the correct potency & tell you how to actually take the remedy properly as in how many times per day and how long as in days, weeks etc.  Otherwise, you will not get optimal results and if not taken correctly you may get “minimal” results.

If you have a fall or any injury it is wise and best to take Arnica pellets sublingually right after the accident or fall if you can.  Keep some in your glovebox in your car and in your first aid kit in your backpack.  That way the Arnica pellets are handy in the event of an accident.

The usual potency is 200K or 30K, but often you have to pick these up from your local Homeopathic practitioner as the vials sold in Health Food Stores are usually the “ch”-type potencies, which are more for the “emotional” trauma of accidents.

What I do:  I use the 200k with a higher potency like 10M to achieve excellent results with people.  The dosage is 5 granules 3 times per day up to every hour in case of very serious accident like a car accident or pedestrian accident.

It is safe for the elderly & children since it is a “dynamized” remedy with now chemical properties left in it from the Homeopathic Dilution process.

Say “goodbye” to concussions, bruises, sore muscles & can even be used for jet lag, scarring etc.  Please contact your local Homeopathic Practitioner for further details.

Steps to Healing (adapted from Dr. Mikael Adams N.D.)

10 01 2015

 Steps to Healing (adapted from Dr. Mikael Adams N.D.)imgres-1

These steps are for chronic conditions of the body, which we will all experience at some point in life, whether the beginning, middle or end.  These steps are not necessarily in the order that you will heal, in fact some of them can be done together.  Ie. Psychological/Spiritual help can be done at the same time as taking drainage or detoxification therapy.

These steps are based on the supposition that the person is on the correct diet for themselves & avoiding exposure, as much as humanly possible, to toxins in their environment. (Correct diet, with good, filtered water, preferably alkaline water so it will absorb properly & the avoidance of chemicals in food, air, water and on your skin.)

Step One:  Open the Excretory Organs & drain:  a)Bowels, b)Lymphatic system, c) Kidneys,    d) Skin, & the liver empties via the bowel.  Ultimately you want to get at the CELLULAR level which requires more than just a great diet.  This is where herbs & homeopathic remedies come in.  Herbs can scour the toxins around & inside your cells, the Unda #’s, which are homeopathic remedies, are used to get rid of cellular toxins, & will help you get rid of toxins affecting cellular function & enzyme systems, that rely on nutrients to run.  When your body’s cells are  “cleaned” this way,  then your supplements & even food  you use will be less in volume or calories, but nutrient rich, since your body will run more efficiently and need less calories to do it. So eating nutrient dense foods with less calories will help your body function correctly while you do the cleansing but it will NOT take the place of cleansing.  Eating a diet such as this will not detoxify you at the cellular level by itself…this is a mistake that a lot of people make.  It isn’t all about diet, in this case. (Ie. When you tune up your car, your gas mileage gets better because it will require less to run on.)

Step Two: Eliminate Environmental Toxins & the predisposition to “collecting” them in your body.  This can be done by treating your “constitution” and your “tendencies” that  you were born with.  This is usually through homeopathic remedies that release the negative tendency and “neutralize” its influence.  These are chronic conditions like; scoliosis, schizophrenia, alcoholism, diabetes, weak lungs, weak joints etc.

Step Three:  Stimulate the enzymes & substitute where necessary.  Using certain herbs to increase digestive power or using the Unda #’s to clean off the enzyme systems can help the person’s body to digest & assimilate their food much more effectively.  (I always say “you are what you assimilate.”)  In this way, all the organs and the systems made up from the organs will function more effectively creating a stable energy flow through out the day with no dips to the energy.  Remember, we are a human chemical factory and if there is a blockage in any of the enzyme systems the liver will try to push wastes through another enzyme system, if it does not work, you will store the toxins often in your bowel, lymphatic system and your between your cells causing you to become lethargic.  This is gradual of course and is often why people do not pick up on their problems quick enough since they believe it has to do with “old age” or working too much etc.  Cancer and other degenerative dis-ease starts here…at the cellular level.

Step Four:  Dysbiosis Therapy which is basically working on your gut and making sure that you are eating fermented foods daily like; water kefir, milk kefir, sauerkraut, fermented veges etc.  (Pickled food is not fermented.)  You may also need some herbs for the gut if you have a parasite or an overgrowth of bacteria in the gut which can lower your B12 levels and cause low energy.  Having a gut with the correct amount of healthy flora will help you produce B vitamins, enzymes etc.

Step Five:  Reduce Stress & Tonify the Qi.  Herbs & diet combined can help to tone the Qi & reduce stress in our body. If you compare this to your car engine, the gas will flow freely to the engine to combust with little waste left over and give your car the energy it needs to run smoothly. This is when you will have the best energy, no blocks to your energetic system.  The herbs & diet you need to maintain this energy or Qi will depend on your body type & individual idiosyncrasies, which is why it is important to get checked out by a professional.  Since just because a certain herb/regime helped someone else does not mean it is the best for you.  It will save you time and money to actually get checked out by a Holistic Professional of your choice since you will not have to guess what you need and waste money trying it out.

Step Six:  Nutritional Support, like Vitamin & Mineral supplements or nutritive herbs can also work well or green smoothies or juicing etc.  Anything to get your nutrient quotient up.  Think organic veges with some fruit in season.

Step Seven:  Constitutional therapy especially for the way you express and feel emotions & your body’s tendencies to certain dis-ease.  Healing your emotions or the way you express them can be challenging for some people.  Ultimately, the way you express yourself or do not express yourself is the way you were built and conditioned.  Certain homeopathic remedies can be helpful for those whose emotions are “stuck” and cause havoc in the body.  Ie. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or any chronic disease has an emotional element to it plus some so called “genetic” dis-eases can be helped by this type of therapy.

Step Eight:  Organ & Enzyme regeneration are sometimes required and organotherapy (a specific form of homeopath aimed at a specific organ to help it function normally) can be useful here.  Even some high strength antioxidants either in foods or herbs are very useful here to restore and protect the liver especially, but also the cardiovascular system, kidneys etc.  This will keep the body from degenerative diseases by protecting the body against the pollutants we have no control over as in the “air you breathe”.  Ie. We all need protection from air pollution.

Step Nine:  Spiritual/Psychological Healing:  Personally, I believe all that we do is spiritual, even if it is just the body, since the body houses the soul and we are one unit.  But sometimes people experience trauma in their life and it will create a vortex that uses up a lot of energy, since the person will be reacting to things that set them off without control.  So these traumas need to be healed and can be released through EMDR methods quite effectively or even talk therapy,  if you get the right professional for yourself.  Also, having a faith in someone bigger than your world can be essential to healing as it will give meaning to the suffering we all endure to one extent or another and hope, to get through it or be healed in the next life, in heaven.

Step Ten:  Removal of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMG) & Geopathic Stress from cell phones, cell phone towers and zones that cause geopathic stress in houses or buildings that people reside in.  Generally, EMG and Geopathic Stress cause Cancer over time but also very low energy and other inflammatory conditions of the body in the mean time.  There is a lot of evidence out there now where you can see the research on the cause and effect of these sources of radiant energy.  These types of energy will affect the body’s electrical system and cause the  bodys’ energy field  to be over-powered by the energy fields from phones & cell phone towers especially, but also geopathic stress will do this also.  One of the protectors I recommend are the Pulsor products which contain various strengths of Piezo Electric Crystals which will emit a field over your own energy field and strengthen it so that you are not affected by the fields that surround you.  (I have experienced this personally around large pieces of automated chemistry equipment while working in the hospital and the Pulsor Crystals saved me.  Very low energy was my symptom…so low that I could hardly function at the end of the day.)

Get the Most Out of Your Homeopathic Flu Remedy. (How-to instructions.)

11 11 2014

        The homeopathic way of preventing the flu requires you to take the Thymus booster, which will be imageseither the H-TYP or the Thymus granules, ON WHAT I CALL DAY 1 OF THE FIRST WEEK AND THE INFLUENZINUM REMEDY ON DAY 2 OF THE SAME WEEK.  YOU REPEAT THIS FOR 5 WEEKS.  Please mark on your calendar the designated days that you will do it.  If you miss a day, don’t worry just do it the next day you haven’t ruined the schedule.  Just try your best to stick to the schedule.  I would recommend that everyone in the family takes the remedy at the same time, same day etc…makes life easier. 🙂

The difference between this and the conventional flu vaccine is; a) Homeopathic flu remedies are energetic by nature and thus there is no danger of obtaining another virus from this remedy as you can get from the conventional flu shot.   It does not contain the actual virus, but it contains the energetic frequency of the virus prepared in a dynamic way using serial dilution methodology.  b) It does not contain harmful preservatives such as formaldehyde or mercury or any other preservative.

EXPLANATION OF THE REMEDIES:

       The homeopathic flu remedy consists of either small, poppy-seed granules or the regular sized granules found in the multi-dose tubes of homeopathic remedies.  The former is more efficient at exhibiting prophylactic care because you dump the whole vial in your mouth at once and it thus covers a greater surface area in the mouth.  The greater the surface area, the better it works.  The latter can also work but you would need to take at least 15 to 20 granules in your mouth in order to produce a similar effect as the smaller poppy-seed sized granules.   I am in favour of the former and thus use this one whenever it is available.

       We used to be able to get the Thymus activator in the same forms either poppy-seed or regular-sized granules, but since the government of Canada’s Health Branch went on a rampage over these last few years they have removed off the market for some weird, unknown, & unexplained reason.  (There is a lot of fear in the Health Branch plus a lot of politics as we all know.)  Thus, in order to remedy this I have included either a Thymus 9ch or a 6ch or the H-TYP Homeopathic tincture from Seroyal which may not be quite as good as the Thymulline 9ch but it will still help you produce an immune response from the flu remedy.  

HOW TO TAKE AND STORE HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES:

         Before getting into how to actually take the program effectively, please make sure you understand how to actually take the homeopathic remedies.  Here are a few things to keep in mind when taking homeopathic remedies;

 A.  Store remedies away from heat, light, electrical & electromagnetic energy.

B.  Make sure you have a “clean mouth” before taking these or any other homeopathic remedies.  This means no taste of any food or drink or any mint from toothpaste should be lingering in your mouth prior to taking these.  If you find that you do have a taste in your mouth, please rinse your mouth out until the taste is gone.

C.  You can have water before these remedies or any other homeopathic remedy, but no food or other drink within 45 MINUTES of taking these remedies.  Normally, for other homeopathic remedies it is 15 MINUTES, but in this case when using it preventatively or prophylactically, you must abide by these rules.

D.  In order to take the granules, you must turn the vial over with the lid facing down, then twist the vial and count the granules into the lid.

          a)For the Thymus Granules;  you may need to just do 10 granules in the lid at a time and 25 may be difficult to count.  Remove the lid carefully and without touching the granules with your hands, dump the contents into your mouth and allow the granules to dissolve.  Remember to wait 45 minutes before eating or drinking.

          b)For the Influenzinum Remedy, remove a vial from the box, (there are 5 of them because you take 1 per week for 5 weeks.) take off the lid by gently twisting it, then dump the contents directly into your mouth and allow to dissolve.  Remember to wait the 45 minutes before eating and drinking.

E.  In order to take the drops, just put about 2 tbsp of purified water, not tap water in a glass, then simply remove the cap off the bottle and tilt on an angle while counting the drops into the water in the glass.  Swirl the glass to mix drops and put the whole amount into your mouth and swish for 15 to 30 seconds before swallowing.  Remember to wait the 45 minutes before eating or drinking.


INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO TAKE THE HOMEOPATHIC FLU REMEDIES:

(This is a five week program.)

For Adults:

Step 1:

Week 1/Day 1:  Take either the Thymus granules or the H-TYP in these doses;  25 granules/ 20 drops.  (See above for exact directions on how to take these remedies properly.)

Step 2:

Week 1/Day 2:  Take the Influenzinum remedy and remove 1 vial, proceed to twist the lid off and dump the contents into your clean mouth.  (See above for exact directions on how to take these remedies properly.)

Weeks 2 to 5:  Repeat Step 1 and Step 2.

Herbal Fomentations

8 01 2014

A fomentation is a way to apply herbal solutions to the external part of your body to fight images-22infections, soothe an area.

Supplies required:

  1. A Thin, clean, 100% cotton cloth at least the size of the area of concern or larger.
  2. The herbs you will use to make the tea.
  3. A pot to heat the solution.
  4. Saran wrap.
  5. Old towels.
  6. Hot water bottle or a heating pad.
  7. Timer.

Directions:

Make the herbal solution as follows;

  1. Either put to large handfuls of the loose herb in 4 cups water OR when using tincture (a liquid, alcohol extract) add about 50 drops tincture to 1 cup warm water.
  2. Please refer to the “Herbal Preparation” sheet to get more detailed instructions on how to make the tea form from dried herbs.
  3. For tincture, you can also apply the drops directly to your skin and then put the cotton cloth in hot water and apply over top the tincture that was first placed on the skin.  It depends on the strength of the herb.  Please check with the herbalist.
  4. Place the cloth on the affected area.
  5. Wrap saran wrap around the area if at all possible.
  6. Make sure that you have old towels down where you will be laying as well as old towels to put over the hot water bottle or heating pad which will be on top of the saran.  PLEASE PUT THE HEATING PAD ON “LOW” ONLY,TO AVOID BURNING!
  7. Put a timer on before you lie down.  You only need to lie down for 30 to 60 minutes depending on the nature of the ailment.

To Summarize then:

  1. Prepare herbs.
  2. Prepare the place where you will lie down by putting old towels down to protect the area from drips from the herbs.
  3. If using a tincture, apply the drops directly to the skin and massage in well.
  4. Set the timer, fill your hot water bottle or get your heating pad.
  5. Place the cloth either soaked in the herbal tea or in hot water if you are using a tincture, on the affected area.
  6. Wrap the area with saran wrap and lie down.
  7. Put the hot water bottle or heating pad on top of the saran wrap…if it is too hot put a thin towel on top of the saran wrap and then the hot water bottle or heating pad.
  8. Put an old towel on top of the hot water bottle or heating pad.
  9. Close your eyes and relax, when the timer goes off then get up.
  10. Place the cotton cloth in a ziploc bag to be used again or wash it and have a new one ready to use right away.  You should be able to re-use the cloth with out washing it each time unless you have open sores.  In that case, each cloth must be washed in very hot water to kill the bacteria before it can be used again.
