NUTRIENT-DENSE HEALTH-BUILDING FOODS

"YOU CAN TRACE EVERY SICKNESS, EVERY DISEASE AND EVERY AILMENT, TO A MINERAL DEFICIENCY" Linus Pauling

As you can tell by my webpage, in my health consultation practice, I focus on nutrition and education.

Part of my work is to assist people in discovering their potential to be healthy. I educate people on how to build a healthy body through preventative medicine; how to re-claim your power and re-gain your health as well as maintain your health.

Much of the practice of medicine is disempowering: You hand your body parts over to people with white coats. There is much formality and GOD-like stuff, rushing people through a system to give out drugs instead of answers. There is something you can do to make a difference, whether it's your diet and nutrition, herbs, psychotherapy, exercise, or meditating on a beach somewhere.

I work with many people who have chronic fatigue syndrome....(it's really adrenal burnout bringing about total exhaustion). I work with people who have allergies, weight issues, eczema, arthritis, fibromyalgia, hypoglycemia, herpes, diabetes, digestive problems and even cancer. Most doctors cringe when a woman comes in with PMS, infertility or menopause, I love working with hormonal imbalances.

A major health problem exists today......STRESS!!

Colitis, ulcers, digestive disorders, hypoglycemia, depression, obesity, and nervous breakdowns are just a few of the stress-related afflictions resulting from our contemporary lifestyle.

Everything is so fast-paced in this age of instant information. These stresses put a huge strain on the body, causing poor digestion, muscle tension, irritability, frustration and many related problems. We get annoyed, we get angry, we get depressed, we're losing control. The stress interferes with the body's ability to function normally

and we get sick.

For this body to be healthy and pain free, all of our systems must work together in balance. If any one of these systems is functioning poorly, it causes strain on the other systems.

We must think of the body as a whole and observe the interaction of all of the body systems. Maintaining health means dealing with the body as a whole. You aren't just a kidney or a heart. If your heart is weak and functioning poorly, what do you think is happening to the rest of your body?

For over 50 years, orthodox medicine has treated disease with an allopathic approach. For headaches there are 50 varieties of aspirin. If we get an infection, we want antibiotics (now linked with cancer in the literature). For cancer, try surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

Modern medicine treats disease by poisioning and attacking the system.

Rarely do we look at contributing factors. A natural health practitioner treats health as a state of constant renewal, rebuilding and regeneration. One of the reasons we die from disease or just get that cold or flu is because we are not nutritionally able to feed our cells properly. And as we age, our bodies have increasing difficulty in absorbing many of the nutrients that we consume. And our soils are extremely deficient here in America making our foods deficient in the vitamins and minerals necessary for good health; if it is not in the food, we don't get it.

Our cells are starving to death because we are trying to live on processed convenience foods.

We are also deficient in oxygen. We don't breathe. Disease flourishes in oxygen deficient tissue. We deal with the modern day influences of dirty air, dirty water, and dirty food. Our cells are gunked up with pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, petrochemicals, heavy metals, preservatives and other chemicals and can't function properly.

Ninety percent of the diseases affecting Americans today are degenerative diseases resulting from the body's life-sustaining processes of regeneration being unable to cope with and overcome modern day influences of pesticides, depleted soils, chemical agriculture, processed foods, dirty air, contaminated water, bar code counterfeit convenience foods and stress.

There is no "bug", no virus, no bacteria or outside invader for modern medicine to conquer with drugs.

The problem is within and the answer lies in restoring the processes of good health by nourishing the body. We must take responsibility for our own lives and our own bodies. Whether it is a minor headache or a cancerous tumor, it is up to each of us to find the imbalances indicated and restore our body to overall good health by fully and completely nourishing it.

...... We are a self-healing organism and we are only one that can cure us.

Healing is an adventure! It is a journey of discovery. What am lacking? What do I need to do become healthier. Illness is what our body must do to continue. It is our body trying to teach us how to be well.

THERAPEUTIC-GRADE ESSENTIAL OILS
( http://www.commonscentshealing.com )

Have you considered using essential oils as part of your health and wellness program?

Nature has given us a remedy for every problem we have. Plant based essential oils can easily be used as one of those remedies. Essential oils are not new. They were more valuable than gold and jewels during biblical times. Many are mentioned in the bible as sacred. (There are 188 references to essential oils in the Bible.) Essential oils were some of the first medicines in use because they produced emotional release, mental clearing, spiritual upliftment, physical healing and disease prevention.

I use essential oils as another way to add nutrients, hormones, and oxygen to my tissues. I use essential oils because they literally dissolve the chemicals, the pollution and gunk in my cellular membranes and push them out so the liver and kidneys can clear them out of the body. That way, my cells can function, rebuild and regenerate properly. Most of the essential oils available are also rich in protective anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-yeast compounds. A side benefit is that some oils can even reprogram your cellular DNA to repair genetic mutations.

Every essential oil is wealthy with use.

I have used therapeutic grade peppermint oil on the temples, scalp and forehead and sometimes even on the spine to help relieve a headache. Because it increases circulation, it wakes you up, and it increases cognition and endurance. I use it over areas of pain to relieve or lessen pain.

Because an essential oil is so fine and so concentrated, it gets into the blood stream very quickly and works within minutes. I have used peppermint oil over the sinuses or inhaling to clear up sinus infections. It can be used in water to drink or put over pulse points of the body as a coolant; it is great in hot weather or for hot flashes. I have used it for indigestion. I have rubbed it on children's bodies to bring down a fever; it works miracles with a chiropractic adjustment. These are just a few of the applications for just one oil! But beware; not just any peppermint will work!

Recently I had a patient call with gastric distress. She felt horrible and needed help now! She had some peppermint oil which she rubbed on her stomach and took orally as I directed. It did not work (even though she got it at the health food store, it wasn't a therapeutic grade oil). When I saw her, I gave her some of my peppermint oil - it worked immediately.

We have the technology to make any fragrance: that fragrance can be called all natural. Unfortunately, it will be missing many of the constituents that create balance and health in the body.

Essential oils create the fragrance of a plant; they are the blood of the plant circulating and carrying the minerals, oxygen, essential elements and nutrients from the plant root system into the stems, the leaves and the blossoms. They are the immune system of the plant; as such they can stimulate ours. They are the concentrate of the plant and when they are removed from the plant all that is left is the dead, dry fiber. The oils are very fragile and volatile so they are easy to destroy.

The oils in the plant work just like the blood in our bodies; they carry the oxygen, the enzymes and the nutrients to all the vital tissues. An essential oil will go into the blood stream when rubbed on the skin within seconds. Often, you put an oil on your feet and taste it in your mouth within seconds, it travels through your blood stream to your taste buds.

Before you are even aware of the fragrance, the healing molecules are in the tissues of your brain. They are tiny molecules that can pass through the blood brain barrier and into every cell in the body. They carry more oxygenating molecules than any other substance known to man. Without oxygen we die! Oxygen is also the very thing we need for regenerating tissues, reversing aging and disease and rebuilding health. Oxygenating the tissues slows down that aging process because the oxygen brings with it increased circulation, which in turn increases the nutrient supply to our tissues.

One of the reasons we die from disease or just get that cold or flu is because we are not nutritionally able to feed our cells properly. Our soils are extremely deficient here in America making our foods deficient in vitamins and minerals, if it is not in the food we don't get it. ..........................................Our cells are starving to death!

DISEASE FLOURISHES IN OXYGEN DEFICIENT TISSUE!

We are also deficient in oxygen. We don't breathe. Our cell membranes are gunked up with pesticides, and other chemicals and can't function properly. True breathing takes place inside the mitochondria of the cell. When there is toxic film on the cellular membranes, the cell can't breathe.

When I was traveling years ago, I had a bottle of oil blend called Purification with me. It is one of my favorite oils. It is gentle on the skin. It is healing to scrapes, cuts, bites from spiders, stings from bees, hornets and wasps and it smells wonderful. It also keeps mosquitoes and other bugs at bay.

My suitcase went on to parts unknown for a few days. During this time the Purification in my suitcase leaked all over a CD I had. It ate a hole through the plastic CD cover, through the CD and was working on the other side of the cover. It dissolved the plastic!

That is what many of these oils do to the gunk in the receptor sites of the cellular membranes. Therapeutic grade essential oils can melt away that toxic film. While they are at it, many of them can reprogram the DNA that was damaged by the petrochemical by-products that initially created the film.

Oils work on the emotional level as well as the physical level. They can be soothing and calming or stimulating and energizing.

Research has found that our body will only release emotions when the amygydula is stimulated? The amygydula controls the limbic system of the brain. The limbic system activates all the senses in the body, the sense of smell, taste, touch, and hearing.

Researcher, John Ladue at New York Medical Center found that the only thing that would stimulate the release of DNA encoded emotional memory and trauma in the amygydula was fragrance.

As soon as you smell an essential oil, that fragrance has already crossed the blood brain barrier to stimulate the thalamus, the hypothalamus, the pineal, the pituitary, the reticular activating system; then it goes on to stimulate the glands and the organs of the body.

We are truly blessed to have pure essential oils that are therapeutic grade and meet the high European AFNOR-ISO standards. Essential oils are also the very thing we need for the regenerating of tissues, reversing aging and rebuilding health. I don't know about you but I want to do everything I can to slow down that aging process.

If you have oxygenation to the tissues you can slow down that aging process; oxygenation and increased circulation increases the nutrient supply to that tissue so it can get and stay healthy.

DIFFUSING - A diffuser puts the oil into your air. (Do NOT use a heat based diffuser. The heat will destroy some of the therapeutic qualities of the oil.) Essential oils have the ability to attach to airborn chemicals, metals and pathogens and literally digest them. AND when you inhale any fragrance, it immediately stimulates the olfactory nerve and fires to the amygydula which activates the limbic system, this stimulates all the senses of the body. This sensory "experience" helps release negative emotional trauma, helps balance the emotions, helps supply pure ozone, helps increase oxygenation in the atmosphere and in your cells; it supplies negative ions, it has anti-fungicide, germicide, viral properties, anti-bacterial properties.

At the same time you are diffusing to improve your environment, you are improving your inner environment by increasing your oxygen uptake and improving your cellular health.

When therapeutic-grade essential oil is released into the air these properties are released.

Therapeutic-grade essential oils contain an electrical frequency measured both in hz and khz frequency. NYU has an apparatus called a squid that measures the frequency that comes off of the body or any living thing. Science is predicting that within 5 years they will be able to diagnosis disease by frequency alone.

THE BODY HAS AN ELECTRICAL FREQUENCY!

Dr. Royal Raymond Rife documented that years ago; Nicola Tesla did as well.They found health is above 68 hz. If you can maintain that frequency, you will never be sick. Disease begins at 58 hz frequency, a cold will invade the body at 58 hz frequency, flu symptoms at 57, Ebstein Barr symptoms start at 52, and cancer starts at around 42. Essential oils have a frequency as well. They measure at between 52 and 320 MHz. Rose oil is the highest frequency essential oil measuring at 320 MHz. Fresh produce measures at up to 15 MHz. Dry herbs measure from about 12 to 22 and fresh herbs measure at about 20 to 27 MHz. When you begin to use high frequency oils, you begin to raise your electromagnetic frequency. It is like beginning to armor up your body.

Essential oils are very potent as well.

Did you know that it takes about 2,000 pounds of cypress to make one pound of oil? Two to three tons of melissa plant material is needed to produce one pound of melissa oil. It takes 5,000 pounds of rose petals to make approximately one pint of rose oil. This should make it easy to understand why some of these oils are expensive. ONE DROP of essential oil contains approximately 40 million-trillion molecules. That is a 4 with 19 zeros after it. 40,000,000,000,000,000,000. We have over 100 trillion cells in our body. One drop of essential oil contains enough molecules to cover every cell in the body with 40,000 molecules. It takes only one molecule of the right kind to open a receptor site and communicate with your DNA to alter cellular function.

The vast majority of oils are produced for the perfume industry, an industry which is only interested in an oils aromatic qualities. They use high pressure and high temperature as well as chemical solvents to increase yield and decrease distillation time. To most people these oils contain a pleasant aroma but they lack any therapeutic qualities. Most of the chemical constituents necessary to produce therapeutic results have been burned off with the high heat and often there are still solvent residues present.

People ask me how I use the oils. Basically you can rub them on, smell them, and ingest them! I use them daily on myself and my patients. I use an oil called Valor on almost everyone I see. It has been referred to as a Chiropractor in a bottle. It helps balance the body. I put a drop of oils on the hands and have people inhale them. As they are rubbed on the hands, they are also absorbed into the bloodstream. As they are inhaled, they are absorbed into the bloodstream.

The organs and parts of our body are represented on many places in our body - our hands, our feet, our abdomen, and our ears. I rub the oils into the feet and the lobes of the ears. I use Valor along the instep of each foot because that area represents the spine. It is very healing to apply the oils along the spine and along the nerve meridians of the spine. It feels wonderful to rub many of the oils over the stomach and the heart. My patients make it a point of asking for the oils.

Click to read about:

For your information I have included some information on the uses of specific essential oils and certain health problems.

DIGESTIVE COMPLAINTS - Di-Gize rub a few drops on your stomach and take a few drops orally.

MORNING SICKNESS - use Di-Gize behind the ears, it goes into the eustasian tubes, the lymphatics, into the carotid arteries. Massage along the spine in the mid thoracic area. Rub it on the bottom of your feet and over your stomach. Along your spine use thyme and clove.

Essential oils are natural antioxidants. They are free radical scavengers and they have antimicrobial activities.

DIABETES - bitter fennel oil, common dill, coriander brought blood glucose levels

Egyptians had a cure for every disease known to man. Frankincense is a biblical oil for healing the sick: the holy anointing oil. It contains sesquaterpins which go beyond the blood brain barrier. Frankincense has properties that will effect bronchitis, asthma, ulcers, catarrah, immune function & deficiency, nervous depression.

Myhrr is an anti-infective, antiviral. It also contains sesquaterpines. It has hormone like qualities. It is used for diarrhea, hepititis, bronchitis, ulcers, hyperthyroid, auricular therapy.

Bible references talk about the herbs of the fields for healing and anointing with healing oils. They have been used for thousands of years.

We need to learn to take care of our temple, otherwise we will be a victim of disease and modern medicine.

IMMUPOWER FRANKINSENSE, CYSTIS (auto immune support, anti infectious, viral, bacterial, neuro tonic, neuro regulator, infantile problems, auto immune problems, hemorrhages, plaque in the arteries, and rheumatoid conditions.

Moses used HYSSOP for the children of Egypt, all the plaques, ovarian troubles, mucolytic problems, cystic fibrosis, decongestion, cystitis. The oils are widely discussed in the books of Exodus.

CLOVE OIL cholera, tooth problems, viruses of the nerves, TB, digestive problems. It has incredible antioxidant properties. One ounce of clove oil has the antioxidant capacity of: 450 pounds of carrots, 120 quarts of blueberries or 48 gallons of beet juice. Twice daily I take 10 drops of clove oil in a capsule.

RAVENSARA OR ROBINSARA AEROMATICA - viral hepatitis, cholera, herpes, infectious mono, EBV, insomnia, fatigue, muscular fatigue.

MOUNTAIN SAVORY - SATURITA MONTANA - anti-infectious, anti-bacterial, anti parasitic, anti-fungal, viral, rheumatoid conditions, immune stimulant, sexual problems, arthritis, etc.

OREGANO - anti-infectious, viral, bacterial, immunostimulant. It is a hot oil so you might want to dilute it for use.

BLACK CUMIN OIL - aids and other viral infections.

SPRUCE AND HYSSOP - anti inflammatory

PEPPERMINT - is used as a CARRIER that drives other oils into an area. It also assists in relieving stomach discomfort, nausea and digestive headaches. It is anti-inflammatory, antitumoral, antiparasitic (worms), antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, pain relieving, and it is reported to curb the appetite.

LAVENDER - insomnia, burns, direct on the burn better than aloe.

ROMAN CHAMOMILE - will clear allergy symptoms within a few minutes. Inhaling it stimulates antibodies and gets endorphins going.

When you dehydrate herbs, they lose their potency.

SPECIALIZED LABORATORY TESTING

Often I will see a patient who has been given a clean bill of health by their doctor. The labs look "great," the exam shows nothing, and the patient feels terrible. Laboratory tests will frequently be normal even though the patient has symptoms.

Did you know that in order for a lab test to show positive results, a loss of function of the affected area has to be present by at least 40% or more. In other words 40% or more of the affected tissue or organ is not working properly in order to show a positive lab test indicating something is not right. The affected tissue or organ has to be so ill that the results must show up as a pathological change. TBM, AK and ART will demonstrate abnormal findings when there is a loss of 1-2% of the function of your affected organ.

SIMPLE AT-HOME TESTING

I use many easy tests you can do at home to monitor your health. Most are very simple and self explanatory.They include tests to monitor your pH, your digestion, whether or not you have candida, your thyroid function, your cardiac health.

 

1. 7-day Diet Diary

In my practice I will often have people fill out a 7-day diet diary. Our diet has a profound affect on how we feel as well as on our behavior. Diet is one of the first things I look at when someone comes to see me with complaints of depression, PMS, arthritis, allergies, digestive problems, pain, fatigue. Believe it or not what we eat has a profound effect on us both immediate and far reaching. Diet is also one of the things we have the most control of. (Look in the archives for dietary information if you want to learn more on this topic.)

 

2. Axillary Temperature Test

The current medical diagnosis of hypothyroidism measures the amount of T3, T4, Free Thyroxin, and TSH levels in your blood at the time it was taken. Many with normal levels of these thyroid hormones are functionally hypothyroid. That is, the body is unable to effectively utilize these thyroid hormones. The Axillary temperature test provides a simple and accurate method to measure how efficiently your body is using the thyroid hormones.

Broda Barnes, M.D., an endocrinologist and thyroid specialist proposes that the most sensitive and accurate method of assessing hidden low thyroid is simply to check how effectively the body creates heat. That is the basil (at rest) metabolic rate. Low thyroid function can cause many seemingly unrelated functional health disorders. When people think of low thyroid function, they think of weight problems. Low thyroid function can also relate to fatigability, hair loss, PMS, dry skin, heart disease, excessive menstrual bleeding, circulatory disturbances, ovarian cysts, emotional fragility, menopausal symptoms, fibroids, postpartum depression, cervical polyps, endometriosis, infertility, miscarriage, and low sperm count.

To check your thyroid function, have a thermometer ready to go at night before going to bed and place it next to your bed. In the morning on awakening, with as little movement as possible, place the thermometer in your armpit or your mouth and lie quietly for until temperature registers.

A normal functioning thyroid will register 97.8 to 98.2 axillary or 98.6 if oral; a low thyroid will register below 97.8. If menstruating, start on the second or third day of your menstrual flow. Take for at least 5 days. Do not start during ovulation. You may be asked to check your temperature daily for one complete menstrual cycle.

DAY
DATE
TIME
TEMPERATURE
1      
2      
3      
4      
5      
6      
7      
8      

Your average temperature should exceed 97.8° to be normal

 

3. IODINE PATCH TEST

Step I: In my practice I use a product called IOPLY. It is an iodine without any harmful additives. You can substitute a regular OTC red iodine tincture from the drugstore. Either way, please keep out of reach of children

Step II: At night, before going to bed, paint your skin with a 3" X 3" square filled in with the IOPLY or iodine tincture using the enclosed stick. Apply the patch of iodine to the inside of thigh, inner arm or the stomach. Be sure to let the it dry thoroughly as it will stain clothing and sheets.

Step III: In the morning, upon rising, note the color and check off as follows: (You can shower or bathe in the morning but do not scrub or wash the stained area with soap.)

____Bright yellow-orange (as it was the night before)

____Pale yellow

____Grayish colored

____No color left at all

____Other

IF THERE IS NO COLOR LEFT, YOUR TEST IS DONE.

IF THERE IS ANY COLOR REMAINING, GO ON TO STEP IV.

Step IV: For the remainder of the day, check the patch every few hours. Note the time that all of the color disappears. If color still remains at bedtime, you may consider the test completed.

 Color was gone by Noon

 Color was gone by 4:00 pm

 Color was gone by 8:00 pm

 Color was gone by bedtime ‚ Some color still remained

 Other _____________________

NOTE: If color disappears quickly, you are low in iodine as well as other minerals possibly due to a deficiency of stomach hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes. Hypothyroidism and/or iodine deficiency are associated with a higher incidence of breast cancer.

(Read the information on nutritional support.)

 

4. TO CHECK YOUR STOMACH FOR SUFFICIENT HYDROCHLORIC ACID

You will need Betaine hydrochloride tablets. Take a tablet before the last mouthful of a main meal. Burning or indigestion means you have plenty of hydrochloric acid. Don't take any more tablets. Use antacid or a teaspoonful of bicarbonate to relieve any discomfort.

If there is no burning or indigestion, next day take 2 tablets in the same way. If still no burning or indigestion, next day take 3 tablets in the same way. If still no burning or indigestion, then you need more acid.

Continue to add one tablet daily up to 7 or until you feel burning or indigestion and back down by one for your dosage. Take that dosage with some enzymes with each meal. Swedish bitters can also help, as can Di-Gize (an essential oil from YLOs), Assimilaid (from Sunrider International), 2 - 3 oz. of a good organic red wine with meals and eating slowly and calmly, chewing and enjoying your food.

 

5. Monitor your Salivary and Urine pH

One of the major things our diet affects is our pH. A nutritionally rich diet is excellent for anyone. I constantly tell my patients they can eat whatever they want as long as nature made it. Literally, the closer to nature you eat the healthier you will become. If man made it you must be very careful. Man messes with food for his own gain. Often that gain is not beneficial to our ancient body. My favorite diet is the hunter-gather diet. I tell people that if you have to cook it, you might want to look carefully at eating it. You can eat meat and fish raw, whole cultures eat that way. I am not saying that you want to eat those foods raw, but you can. You can eat vegetables and greens raw or cooked. You can eat nuts and fruit raw. Legumes and beans must be cooked and many have trouble digesting them. One of the things you can do to help with the ability to digest them is to soak and sprout them before cooking them. (There is also information about the sprouting of foods in the archives.)

You can monitor your pH as a guide to your health. Many of my patients can tell when they are getting sick just by following their pH. Check salivary pH first thing in the morning before rising to see how your mineral status is. Monitor the pH of their first morning urine and then the next urine to see how acidic you are

WHAT ABOUT MY pH??

The healing effects of food and water can unlock the door to many health problems. Just as food can heal, it can also cause disease.

Scientists in the late 19th century discovered that particles that have a similar surface charge repel or repulse each other when in solution, and particles with opposite surface charge attract each other or stick together in a similar solution. Your body fluids are what is called a colloidal suspension.

To stay healthy, an electromagnetic imbalance or an anionic excess is absolutely necessary. Science has found that a healthy body must have a ratio of 65% anions or negatively charged particles (alkaline, OH-) and 35% cations or positively charged particles (acids, H+) in the circulatory system to maintain a healthy homeostasis. When someone is acidic, cationic or has a positive charge overload, and the 65% to 35% balance is upset, pathologic situations begin to occur. Most of our chronic diseases from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, pain to aging fall within this category.

Your body is alkaline by design and acidic by function. Your cells live in an alkaline environment but produce acids as they perform their different functions. These acids are designed to be taken care of by the breath, the urine and the feces. Problems arise when our diets consistently contain too many acid forming foods and not enough alkaline forming foods. We add to this because as a culture we are very shallow breathers. As CO2 increases from poor respiratory habits, pH goes down, lactic acid levels increase and people get achy.

A consistently acidic state can set the stage for premature aging and dis-ease. Acidity decreases the amount of oxygen available to the cells and makes your red blood cells sticky. It is easy to distinguish between acid forming foods and alkaline forming foods because for the most part, they can be grouped into four major categories, three end up as acid producing and one produces alkaline. These are:

(Stress Very Acid)

Meats, Poultry, Fish Very Acid

Dairy Products, Eggs Acid

Cereals, Grains Acid

Fruits, Vegetables Alkaline

Water is extremely important. Pure water breaks down in the body to 65% OH¯ or alkaline and negative in solution and 35% H+ or acidic and positive in solution. Consuming adequate amounts of water (half your body weight in ounces) is a giant step in the direction of good health. Distilled water in glass is recommended because it produces negative ions that are alkaline forming in the body, you can add your own selected minerals. Another choice is reverse osmosis or RO water. With RO water however, you must guard against contamination coming in from the water filter. Just starting to drink enough water on a daily basis can help bring you back into a healthier acid/base balance.

One more thing for you to think about!

I have placed all of the following foods and liquids consumed in categories according to their electrical charge:

1. Alkaline forming foods: water and lemon, distilled water, alkaline water, vegetables, most fruits, nuts and seeds soaked in fresh water and sprouted whole grains.

2. Acid forming foods: preserved, refined and commercially prepared foods as well as flesh foods and grains, sodas, high carbohydrate foods, etc.

3. Nonionic surfactants: sugars and alcohols. Most metabolized foods and nutrients get to the cell via ionic transfer, most waste products of the cell metabolism leave the cell by the same method. In the presence of sugar, high-carbohydrate foods, refined foods or alcohol, that process is hindered and ionic transfer to and from the cell is blocked.

4. Amphoteric surfactants (Zwitter ions) by-products of protein digestion and flesh foods that tend to be acid forming.

Cations, nonionic and amphoteric surfactants break down the body; Anions (alkaline foods and activities) build and heal the body. A diet high in protein, processed foods and grains produces a large amount of acid. If acid can etch glass and dissolve steel wool, what do you think it does to your bones? It causes secretion of calcium in the urine and bone resorption (osteoporosis). Statistically speaking, we have one of the highest levels of osteoporosis in the world.

The addition of fruits, vegetables and more water to the diet adds an alkaline buffer that increases pH and counteracts calcium secretion and bone resorption. These dietary considerations are especially important in the elderly because their kidneys are less able to excrete acids.

A lower blood pH (acidic) will mean more bone loss.

Alkalizing your tissues with more fruits and vegetables means less bone loss. Acidic bodily fluids translates to low minerals and acidic saliva. This will affect your gums and cause them to recede.

Stay healthier by following many other cultures in the world. Build your meals around vegetables with a small amount of meat added for flavor instead of the other way around.

So yes, your mother was absolutely right when she told you to eat all your vegetables. Ideally 75% to 80% of your diet should be vegetables (especially the green leafy ones) and as much of that raw or lightly steamed as you can. Organic is best if you can get it as it will usually be higher in minerals and vitamins than commercially raised produce. You can also add a small amount of fruit. According to USDA guidelines, we need at least 5 cups of fresh vegetables and fruit each day. Many are lucky to get one cup of vegetables a week.

Start slowly. For most, it is more comfortable to go about this change slowly because changing what we eat is often based on emotions and habits we learned as children. Some of these are habits that we are reticent to let go of.

I look at it like the 12 step programs. One day at a time! Little by little! Start eating an excess of anionic alkaline forming foods, drinking adequate amounts of distilled/reverse osmosis or alkaline water, and limiting cationic or acid forming foods, and you will certainly begin to change your health.

REMEMBER EVERYTHING YOU EAT, DRINK AND THINK BECOMES A PART OF YOU!!

If an electron or charged particle encounters a magnetic field it must move. The field around us is called our aura. It is a measurable, charged magnetic field.

Magnets cause the mixing and movement of charged particles. Our red blood cells have iron in the center. Our red blood cells are charged particles. There are many other metals that act as enzymes in our cellular structure. Magnets attract many metals.

All tissues have a charge. Healthy tissues have a negative charge to them. A positive charge usually is an area of pain, discomfort, low energy and lack of health.

The use of magnets in health is not new. They have been used since ancient times for building health, strength and the relief of pain and injury. Even so their use is still controversial.

Do you recall playing with a magnet in the dirt as a child? Those horseshoe magnets had a north pole at one end and a south pole at the other end. Do you recall taking two of them and trying to push the same poles together? They repel each other.

Wearing or using magnets anywhere on our body especially over areas of pain causes cellular motion. It causes the lymph and the blood to move and circulate. Increased circulation allows the body to remove and disperse the toxic products of inflammation and pain. Increased circulation increases nutrition into an area; increased nutrition improves the body's ability to heal itself.

When properly placed, magnets can strengthen muscles. They can help prevent muscle spasms that underlie many forms of pain. They seem to interfere with muscle contractions and spasm. They also interfere with the electrochemical reactions that take place with in the nerve cells, impeding their ability to transmit pain messages to the brain. When used properly magnets can help rebuild and realign your negative magnetic field.

Medical magnets range in strength from 450 gauss to 10,000 gauss. The higher the gauss, the better the pain relief.

PUTTING MAGNETS TO WORK

The earth is a magnet, and is surrounded by a natural geomagnetic field which we rely on for our health and well being. Research shows that over the last 100 years, this magnetic force has declined by 5%. That is an extreme amount for our ancient nervous system.

The sun and the moon are also natural magnets, which help in the maintenance of life on earth. The modern environment in which we have chosen to live - metal structured buildings, cars, trains, and the fact that we often wear rubber or vinal soled shoes, etc. - provides many shields to this natural magnetic force. Magnet therapy can help address this reduction in magnetic force and provide many benefits.

When astronauts first went into space the authorities at NASA could not understand why the returning astronauts suffered from nausea, bone loss and lowered immunity. This was due to severe depletion of white corpuscles in the blood and was found to be a direct result of being away from the earth's magnetic field. The white corpuscles in the blood form a significant part of the body's immune system, helping us to fight off illness. Now space suits are lined with a magnetic material allowing astronauts to walk from the shuttle straight into a press conference.

MAGNETS CAN BE USED IN MANY WAYS TO BENEFIT OUR HEALTH

A magnet can be affixed to the skin directly over the painful area. Some people use ordinary adhesive bandages to affix the magnets. But Transpore, a paper tape made by 3M, works better. It holds well, and it doesn't pull the hairs from the skin when it is removed. If the magnet fails to provide relief within a few days, reposition the magnet over the nearest acupuncture point. To locate these points on the body, consult a book on acupuncture. If repositioning the magnet fails to bring relief within 30 days, you might be dehydrated or perhaps it's not going to work for you. You might have to switch to another type of magnet, or you might be low in minerals or other nutrients.

1. Aching Feet - Magnetic insoles can relieve foot pain and the achy feelings in the legs after you've been standing all day.

2. Arthritis - If pain is limited to your fingers, a neo magnet taped to the affected joint should do the trick. Or, you can wear a magnetic wristband or a magnetic bracelet.

3. Back Pain - Place four magnets about 1.5" on either side of the spine, two per side. If applying and removing several magnets proves troublesome, use a three to four inch ceramic strip magnet or a magnetic back brace.

4. Headache - Tape magnets to your temples or to the back of your head, just above the neck. Or-use a magnetic headband.

5. Tennis Elbow - Use a magnetic band around the elbow. The same band also relieves hand and arm pain caused by repetitive strain injury.

6. For pain anywhere - try wrapping a magnetic bracelet around your wrist and another around your opposite ankle. Wear it for a few days and see what a difference it makes.

ENZYMES - the secret of health!

LET YOUR FOOD BE YOUR MEDICINE

The United States Government has completed two monumental studies linking poor food choices with the two major killers in our society -- Cancer and Heart disease.

1. Dietary Goals for the United States - 1977 Experts concluded that we eat too much sugar, salt, protein and fatty foods and not enough fresh vegetables, fresh fruit and whole grains.

2. Diets, Nutrition, and Cancer - 1982 Singles out meat, dairy, poultry, and other cholesterol rich foods as major contributors to the high rate of cancer in our society. However, other countries have also done studies on meat and dairy consumption and come up with different results. Studies done in Italy came up with sugars and grains as being much more of a problem than meats and dairy. We must remember that many other countries do not allow the hormones and the antibiotics that we typically feed our beef and our poultry and they also did not begin the use of partially hydrogenated fats until very recently. There are many studies and articles available today that relate exposure to chemicals, antibiotic use, sugar and partially hydrogenated fat consumption to cancer.

They also noted that fresh vegetables, sprouts, and grains seem to help prevent it. Over the last 90 years our American diet has degenerated. It's become much more processed and synthetic. Most foods sold in the supermarket today are very heavily processed. Most were not available 50 years ago. Grains are stripped of their fiber and 20 other nutrients. A small handful of synthetic ingredients are thrown back in the "fortify" the product.

Often vegetables are frozen or canned. Sometimes we get the fresh vegetables days after they were picked (unripened), often they sit in storage where they are fumigated, gassed or perhaps irradiated and suffer gross losses in nutrient value. This even happens with some organic foods.

40% of the calories in the American diet are from fat - often dangerous partially hydrogenated fats. This high fat and high sugar diet we are accustomed to is too rich for us. We have problems throwing off the excess calories, fats, proteins, and minerals and they turn to fatty deposits in our arteries.

Animal protein and heavily processed foods lack sufficient bulk to promote healthy bowel habits. Often laxatives, antacids, and Tagamet are favorite additions to our menu.

There are several things absolutely necessary to be truly healthy and protect yourself against environmental hazards and pollution. Fresh air, sunshine, pure clean water, exercise, positive mental outlook and live uncooked foods loaded with vital nutrients, energy, and enzymes.

I say live, uncooked foods because that is the only way we can get enzymes from the world around us. Cooking and processing foods destroys 100% of all enzymes present in foods. Cooking can also damage vitamins, minerals, and proteins leaving some foods devoid of all nutritional value except for calories.

Without the life energy of enzymes, we would be a lifeless pile of chemical substances--vitamins, minerals, water and protein.

Enzymes are the body's work force that melds these substances together into a healthy being.

Enzymes are present in every cell in the body. They are needed to help control all mental and physical functions. They are responsible for nearly every facet of life and health. They are responsible for every function in every cell in the body. They far outweigh the importance of every other nutrient. They represent the life element in the body. Irradiated seeds and potatoes will not sprout because the enzyme potential has been destroyed.

At birth each one of us is given a limited supply of enzymes. Like the energy supply in a battery, this supply has to last a lifetime. Many researchers are beginning to think that the faster you use your enzyme supply, the shorter your life will be.

An enzyme deficient body is a prime target for cancer, heart disease, obesity, arthritis or other degenerative problems.

There are three classes of enzymes: metabolic enzymes, which run our bodies; digestive enzymes, which digest our food; and food enzymes from raw foods which start digestion. Our bodies -- all our organs and tissues -- are run by metabolic enzymes. These enzyme workers take proteins, fats, and carbohydrates (sugars, starches, etc.) and form them into healthy organs and tissues.

Science has identified over 1,000 different metabolic enzymes. All needed to carry on the work of the body -- to repair damage and decay, and to heal tissues.

Digestive enzymes have only three main jobs: digesting protein (protease), carbohydrate ((amylase), and fats (lipase).

Food enzymes are contained in fresh, raw foods or foods that have been cooked below 118 degrees Fahrenheit. They contain enzymes naturally, which begin to break down the fats, proteins, carbohydrates, and fiber when it is thoroughly masticated or chewed. If the food is cooked or processed, the enzymes have been destroyed. This creates an enzyme drain on the body, which weakens the organs and structures of the body. Enzymes are "borrowed" from other parts of the body to help break down the solid particles of food into chyme or liquid. This takes part in the upper part of the stomach. Peristaltic action takes over on the lower half of the stomach and the addition of pepsin and hydrochloric acid begins to break down the protein into amino acids.

Enzymes cannot function properly without the presence of other substances which are know as coenzymes. Coenzymes are minerals, vitamins and proteins. Because of poor soil quality and poor eating habits here in America, most of my patients are deficient in one or another of these coenzymes.

THE AMAZING PEN ARMOR

The Pen Armor is an energy device designed for today's society. All humans and animals are surrounded by many magnetic, radio, and electrical waves (i.e. overhead fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, appliances, power lines, computers, televisions, etc.). There are also indirect waves such as static and stray electricity, energy waves from power transformers, and high voltage power lines that affect us directly.

These radio and magnetic waves are known to alter the energy in the central nervous system causing cellular, tissue, and nerve disruption throughout the entire body. The Pen Armor is a multi-wave receiver that will receive many of the harmful radio and magnetic waves and redirect them away from the body.

GENERAL BODY: The Pen Armor seems to have positive effects on the following areas: Stress and stress related conditions, Balancing body chemistry, Balancing the organ systems, Balancing the immune system, Negativity release. It helps shield the body from the effects of grid lines, ley lines, vortex fields, solar activity, electromagnetic frequency waves (EMF), stray voltage, static electricity, extra low frequency waves (ELF), forms of radiation fallout, computers, and other appliances.

MERIDIANS: The Pen Armor seems to have a positive affect on balancing the meridian systems, the body energy fields, and the positive and negative balance of the body.

ELIMINATION ORGANS: The Pen Armor seems to have positive supportive effects on the major elimination organs and the secondary elimination organs of the body.

CHAKRAS: The Pen Armor seems to have positive effects on the balancing and aligning of the body chakras and their energy fields.

USE IT IN GOOD HEALTH!!

Once a Pen Armor worn for three hours or more, it begins to take on the characteristics of the owner. After three days it is married to you. In other words, you cannot transfer it from one animal or from one person to another. IT MUST STAY WITH THE ORIGINAL USER THAT IT IS SELF-PROGRAMMED TO. If several family members have one, color code the ends - Mom the green, Dad the red one, etc.

THERE IS VERY LITTLE CARE REQUIRED!

--CAUTION--

Don't bend it, don't smash it, and don't run it through the laundry. Place the Pen Armor in DIRECT sunlight, not through a window or a screen, at least once a month for 4-5 hours. If the tube tarnishes, Brasso can be used to polish the finish. Your Pen Armor will not wear out or run down if the above steps are taken.

Your animal's unit can be taped to collars, harnesses, etc. Animals show a huge response over time. --CAUTION-- don't put one on a race animal for the first time on race day. They take some getting used to.

The amount of radiation and electromagnetic stress the system is fighting against, how out of balance the body chemistry is, and the general vitality of the body will dictate how long it will take for the Pen Armor to align itself to your body and begin to help rebalance your system. Often taking some extra organic minerals when you begin wearing the instrument will shorten the adjustment time dramatically. Please ask your doctor about this.

Begin by wearing the Pen Armor for four hours, the next day wear it for six hours. Build up time slowly until you're wearing it a full 12 hours each day. If you're breaking it in too fast, you might notice that you feel tired or dragged out. This is usually due to a lack of minerals in the body or a severe biochemical imbalance in the body. If this happens, take the Pen Armor off and lay it aside until the next day. It may just take a little extra time for your particular body to adjust to it. At night I place mine on my bed stand. There is a residual effect from wearing it. For example, it strengthens your auric shell to the point where you don't need to use it at night unless you're in a very noxious energy field. If you have no way of testing it, just see how you feel. As soon as you build to the point of wearing it all day, you may notice that you sleep better and wake up feeling rested and refreshed.

The Pen Armor is an experimental device that blocks electrical interference.

YOU WILL FIND THAT EVERYONE WILL BENEFIT FROM ONE!!

Allergic people, school children who are around fluorescent lighting (thought to contribute to hyperactivity and some forms of childhood leukemia) will benefit greatly.

Anyone that works around electrical equipment or machinery, those who work in brick and steel office buildings, those near radio, television, microwave towers or computer systems are very much affected by today's environmental problems. This technology is all very draining to our body systems without the protection of the PEN ARMOR!! (click here)

RAINDROP THERAPY

Raindrop Therapy is a method using massage and essential oils on various locations of the body. It has been purported to bring the body into structural and electrical alignment and is typically used to help straighten spinal curvatures and fight viruses. Results vary and this should not be taken to mean that it will work in all instances.

I use this therapy as a relaxation and balancing technique only and make no claims as to its effect on curvatures of the spine. It is a simple application dropping oils like drops of rain from about six inches above the body - hence, the name, Raindrop Therapy. It takes about 60 minutes to complete. The oils continue to work in the body for about 5 days after treatment with continued balancing taking place during this time. In my experience the treatment does not hurt and is always beneficial in some way.

Raindrop Therapy is done on a massage table with the receiver lying face down. The essential oils used are therapeutic grade and derived from plants. They are the very life force of the plant and they innately carry their own intelligence and frequency. This intelligence and electrical frequency, when combined with the intelligence and electrical frequency of the human body, create a greater healing process.

If you give the body the proper tools with which to work, it is capable of healing itself. Raindrop Therapy is NOT a "cure-all", nor a magic bullet. It is a powerful tool to use to help restore a balance of good health. A healthy body is the result of a well-rounded exercise program and a proper diet.

Health is everything you put in on and around your body. It is everything you do, say, hear, see, drink and eat - Raindrop Therapy can be a part of that program.

Oils used include:

Valor - a combination of spruce, rosewood, blue tansy, and frankincense in an almond oil base. It is used to help balance electrical energies within the body on the soles of the feet, over the heart, up the spine and on the shoulders.

Thyme - one of the most antiseptic of all essential oils. It is anti-infectious, anti-bacterial and antiviral. Some research indicates that scoliosis is the result of some viral and/or bacterial activity that has taken place in the body at some point before the scoliosis began. Essential oils can easily penetrate the body and may help kill any virus or bacteria that may be present.

Oregano - works similar to Thyme, but is more aggressive. It may help stimulate the immune system, balance metabolism and strengthen the vital centers of the body.

Wintergreen - an anti-inflammatory that may help to relieve pain. It is excellent for bone, muscle and joint discomfort. It's primary chemical constituent, methyl salicylate, has a cortisone-like activity, which may help with arthritis, tendonitis and rheumatism.

Cypress - may help circulation and may help relieve spasms, cramps, edema, cellulite, varicose veins and water retention.

Peppermint - one of the most highly regarded oils for soothing digestion. It is used here to soothe and strengthen the nerves. It also helps bring harmony and balance between the other oils in order to enhance their individual activity.

Basil - helps soothe the muscles with its antispasmodic activity. It is also known to stimulate the nerves, alleviate mental fatigue and relieve migraine headaches.

Marjoram - is an antispasmodic. It may help relax the muscles and relieve cramping, aches and pains.

Aroma Siez - works like marjoram but is a blend of basil, marjoram, lavender, peppermint and cypress. It has many similar properties and will enhance the results of the marjoram alone.

A mixing oil is sometimes used to dilute the oils that are high in phenols, which may give the skin a burning sensation for some people with fair to light skin. It may be used after applying the oregano and thyme. A massage oil is sometimes used on the entire area after the Raindrop application is finished as a mixing oil. This oil I use is a combination of the oils of wheat germ, grape seed, sweet almond, olive, vitamin E and the essential oils of wintergreen, juniper, marjoram, red thyme, vetiver, peppermint, eucalyptus australiana and lemongrass and is designed to soothe muscle aches and minor swelling. It was created after extensive testing and has been used in European hospitals.

All of the oils are applied to the feet, along the spine at the energy centers and gently spread along the curvature of the spine. Light massage in used starting at the sacrum and extending up to the atlas (the first cervical vertebrae at the base of the skull). A hot towel is applied to the entire back after all the oils are applied and massaged into the spine. This is covered with a blanket, dry towel and/or sheet. The back can become very hot at this time and should peak in about 5-8 minutes. It will then cool right down to where it feels pleasant. The water in the hot towel drives the oils deeper into the skin.

The more out of balance, the more viral or bacterial activity in the body or, the more inflammation in the spine, the hotter and more red and inflammed the area along the spine will become. Some people will experience no heat, while for others it will be mild and very pleasant. For others it may be hot and even a little uncomfortable. It is a therapeutic experience that reaches deep into your cellular structure.

Enjoy!
