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

 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.)

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.

 

 





How to Make Coconut Water Kefir Correctly.

25 07 2013

STEP 1:  Rehydrating the Heirloom Culture.                                                                          imgres

  1. Dissolve 4 to 6 tablespoons of whole cane sugar in 4 cups of water.  (Slightly heat the water to dissolve all the sugar.  The water will be slightly brown from using the whole cane sugar.)  Be sure to all the water to COOL TO ROOM TEMPERATURE before proceeding to the next step.
  2. Place the dehydrated kefir grains in the water and cover with a towel or coffee filter secured with a rubber band.  Allow the mixture to sit for 3 to 4 days until the grains are plump.  Do not allow the mixture to sit for longer than 5 days.
  3. Once the grains are rehydrated, follow the instructions below for making Coconut water kefir.

STEP 2.:  Making the Coconut Water Kefir.

  1. Purchase the Organic Young Thai Coconut Water from your local health food store.  In Calgary, Community Health Food Store carries this in their FREEZER.  This Coconut Water seems to be the best.  The cheaper brands make a poorer quality kefir and I don’t recommend it.
  2. Culture only 1/2 the bottle or 1/3 to start with to make sure it cultures correctly.
  3. Take a 1/2 litre sealer jar and run it through the dishwasher to sterilize it.
  4. Make sure the jar is cooled to room temperature before putting the culture in it.
  5. Use only glass jars and wooden utensils.  Do not put other fermented food near this jar to prevent cross contamination.
  6. Now place 1/3 of the Coconut Water or 1/2 the Coconut Water in the sterilzed jar with the rehydrating kefir grains.
  7. Allow the mixture to culture for 24 to 48 hours before removing the kefir grains.
  8. Please note: Sometimes the grains turn to a powder, do not rinse this…it will disappear down the drain.  Just use it anyway by draining off as much of the Coconut Water Kefir as possible and just reinoculate another fresh batch of Coconut Water by pouring some directly in the same jar as the culture.
  9. For extensive troubleshooting information please visit:  www.culturesforhealth.com/troubleshooting
  10. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO REFRIGERATE YOUR CULTURE ONCE IT IS FERMENTED.  THIS WILL MAKE THE CULTURE DORMANT.
  11. IF IT HAS TURNED INTO A POWDER, THEN THIS CAN BE POURED INTO ANOTHER STERILIZED JAR AND KEPT IN THE FRIDGE UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO USE IT AGAIN OR JUST LEAVE IT IN A BIT OF THE CULTURE IN THE FRIDGE UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO USE IT AGAIN.
  12. OR IF IT IS STILL GRAINS, THEN YOU CAN STRAIN THEM OUT, RINSE THEM AND PUT IN THE FREEZER UNTIL YOU NEED THEM AGAIN.
  13. OR YOU CAN JUST LEAVE THE GRAINS IN A BIT OF THE CULTURE AND KEEP IT IN THE FRIDGE.




What To Do Before a Colonic & Other Helpful Tips

What To Do Before a Colonic & Other Helpful Tips.





God Is Holistic. Our Medical System is not. Which will you choose?

11 06 2013

God is Holistic.  When He created us we were created as one unit; body, mind, free will, spirit & emotions.  As imagesthis world became less than what it was intended to be, we have lost connection between all our parts.  But God gave us ways to ease our suffering until we see His face.  God created all the healing plants and the people who developed remedies from all parts of the earth like Samuel Hahnemann who created Homeopathy.

Unfortunately, our medical system is tainted with greed.  It started with the dissolution of the Eclectic Schools of Medicine, when a very rich family started putting their money into Medical Schools that promoted pharmaceuticals only.  This was because there was and still is very big money in drugs because they can be patented.  Greed has hit the Holistic side as well and you will find some remedies promoted for the sake of cash only.  It is too bad, but it is the way this world is right now and to get through it to make good health choices for yourself you must be discerning and find a professional to help you with the problem you have.   In fact, it is good practise to have more than one person on your health team.

The important nugget of information I want to get across is that drugs can be useful at times, with the exception of Type 1 Diabetes, most drugs should be used temporarily because they tend to suppress functions of the body and this suppresses the symptom or symptoms deeper int he body which will give you a new set of symptoms.  This is NOT a holistic approach at all.  This is SUPPRESSION.  In fact, did you know that the word ALLOPATHY, actually means to INCREASE SUFFERING.

Now having said all that, I will say I am not against drugs.  What I am against is the way our health system makes us believe it is “free health care”, when in fact, since we are one of the most taxed countries in the world…….where do you think some of that money goes to?  Especially when you consider that some drugs are marked up 3,000 per cent and it is covered by the government when this is given out in hospitals.

I believe we need health reform.  Not sure if that will happen.  But it can happen with you.  Take the time to find the cause of the problems you are having and if you pray about it see where God leads you.  Sometimes it might be pharmaceuticals, but many times “no”.  There is  a whole world out there in Natural Medicine that might have been discovered had the Eclectic Medical Schools had the money to stay open.  There is people like me that hold to their philosophy around healing you just have to seek us out.

Check out this article:http://www.planetherbs.com/history/what-is-eclecticism.html

It describes in detail Eclectic Medicine.

My heart goes out to a suffering world with huge medical expenses due to the greed of a few visionary people.  It doesn’t have to be this way.  We are the change.  We are holistic, because we were made as one unit…think about it.





How Iridology Changed My Life

14 05 2013

Iridology changed my life.  But you have to get a well-trained person to look into your eyes.  I had at least imgres-52 or 3 people look into my eyes over the last 20 years and it was the last person who took the time needed to actually discover what my genetic strengths and weaknesses are.  I really didn’t value Iridology until I had this reading done very recently.

You should get two major points from this blog post.  One, find a qualified practitioner who has good testimonials so you know at least 2nd hand that they are good.  Second, read up on your Iridology signs yourself so that you can understand yourself better.  Iridology is a good way to get to know yourself. Most of what you see in the iris is genetic. You will have to work with what you have since that is all you have! If you do,  you will have a more fullfilled life and a healthier one at that.

Think “quality” life.

I have suffered from some genetic defects since childhood and suffered from severe glandular disorders which caused terrible hormonal imbalances my entire life.  One of the off-shoots of this was anxiety and depression.  I did the counselling route including “cognitive” therapy and yes, it helped me somewhat, but I can tell you that I always had to work 2x as hard as everyone else because these imbalances caused negative thinking and it was not all psychological.  In fact, now that I have been feeling better than I have for 20 years, I can tell you that had I’d seen a good Iridologist back as a kid, I would’ve at least been put on some products to support the genetic predispositions showing up in my eye.

Knowing that I have a genetic predisposition…really was a relief.  My hormonal balances are genetic and I will always have to be on something to keep them balanced.  I suffered such emotional upheaval that I  was emotionally dependent and though I wanted independence I could not do it because I was not supported properly through diet and supplements.  Though my external life as a child was far from perfect, the inside life I lived was also far from perfect.

While going for counselling as a teen, the focus was on the external situation that I was in, which was completely out of my hands.  What I would’ve benefitted from more was going to an Iridologist and a Homeopath…both which deal with genetics, but in a different way.  (Homeopathy I will discuss at a later date.)  That way I could’ve been supported both internally and externally through counseling and/or group therapy.

Everyone has an Iris type and subtype along with various Iris signs such as; lacuna of different significance, lymphatic rosaries, contraction furrows etc., What it boils down to is where they are located and how the significance of the sign.  Also, the resiliency of the person is also apparent as well as the metabolic type.  It really makes addressing chronic health issues a whole lot easier.

What Iridology did is confirm what I had supposed all along, that I had a genetic disorder that made it impossible for me to reach my full potential until I had those areas of weakness addressed through supplementation, diet and lifestyle.  I have been using this knowledge  on all my clients more recently, since I was fortunate enough to actually take classes from the Herbalist who taught Iridology and read my eyes accurately.  I am very grateful to have received this gift.  I am happy to pass the gift of Iridology to all my clients.  Call today for your appointment!  403-276-5756
