Integrative Health Care + Parkinson’s

what can I do for you? This is the third in a series this week.

Affecting nearly 200,000 Americans every year, Parkinson’s disease is another special condition that significantly interferes with a person’s daily living activities. Traditional treatments include dopamine boosters, antidepressants and antitremor medications. However, some new findings are showing that integrating massage therapy with some of the more traditional pharmacological approaches can be beneficial to people with Parkinson’s.

The Chulalongkorn Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease & Related Disorders has reaffirmed the value of integrative medicine with a 2018 study on therapeutic Thai massage (TTM). Splitting a total of 60 Parkinson’s patients, 30 who received six sessions of TTM in three weeks and 30 who received standard care, the study compared the muscle strength of the two groups. The findings were encouraging. “Our findings provide objective evidence that TTM used in combination with standard medical therapies is effective in improving upper limb muscle strength in patients with PD,” researchers explain.11

A survey done by the Department of Neurology at the University Medical Center Hamburg- Eppendorf furthered the claim that anti-parkinsonian drugs are incomplete without integrative therapies like massage. Of the 181 outpatients with Parkinson’s surveyed, only 33.6 percent found anti-parkinsonian drugs alone helpful. In contrast, 96.3 percent and 89.5 percent of participants found rehabilitative therapy and physiotherapy, both of which involve massage therapy, most effective.12 Once again, this suggests that massage can serve as an essential factor in the health care formula when practiced alongside other integrative approaches.

Additionally, a study done by Glasgow Caledonian in 2016 suggests abdominal massage can help with troublesome symptoms of Parkinson’s, like constipation.13

Research continues to show that an integrative approach to many chronic health conditions is not only effective, but resonates with the patients who are looking for ways to relieve some troublesome symptoms. For massage therapists, that is a big opportunity. “Simply put, traditional medicine can only do so much,” Tatninov believes. “It can only do so much for the pain that accompanies these diseases, such as the imbalances that come with scoliosis. Massage has a direct, immediate effect and can help fill in the holes in care.”

Be who you are

This is not your typical encouragement write-up on being the person you were meant to be. I will give you some food for thought that is not main stream, and is very out of the box, but should be the normal thinking.

We were created, man was created, out of the dust of the Earth and given life and breath from the very mouth of the Creator. It was good. Did you get that? When the tree of knowledge of good and evil entered the picture, so did the lies that we are no longer good. Fear entered first and foremost. Fear and shame are the foundation to all that is not good, all that is not of the creation in the beginning. We were given a choice. That is all. It was a choice. Man did not become evil. The flesh did not become evil. The mind did not become evil. The man allowed the fear and shame to take over his very own body, mind and soul. Yahweh constantly showed that there is a way to stay within what we are create to be. The stuff that was breathed into us at creation was not taken out of us when the other tree was eaten. This is a key point.

We are made in HIS very image. WE are sons and daughters of the Most High. We are good. Sin can take over but it is not who we are.

We are meant for so much more. We have been given the promise of Eternal Life. We must live that kingdom here on Earth. We have the breathe of the Father in us and through us. We can get the fear and shame out. All sin and all evil can be overcome. All of our impurities, all of our transgressions, all of our health issues, all of our Earth’s pollution, is from fear and shame. We are not evil first. Evil takes over us when we allow it in. Evil is the result of not being what we are meant to be.

Be what you are meant to be. Be who you are. Live the life you have been given to live in Messiah. Use the breath of the Almighty that was breathed into you and never taken out.

I could make this longer, but I want you to digest the truth you have just read. Let’s have a conversation.

BE well. Be healthy. Be YOU.

Teaching/Sharing/Passing on/Empowering

I love teaching. Teaching runs in my blood. I love to empower people. I love teaching most because I learn.

Would you like to make sense of the food allergies and sensitivities, and find holistic options within your budget? Food allergies rock your world! They rocked mine. In this class I will help you take an active and empowering role in your daily struggle with this “sensitive” topic (pun intended). 

Would you like to turn around a picky eater, know where to save money for healthy snacks, how to minimize junk and create whole food eaters, be prepared on the go without stress, learn how to travel with food, and create habits to last? This is not just for the now, but for the future.  ALL HEALTH now will reap good or disaster in the future. I have a class for that!
Learn why making even simple menu adjustments can lead to kids who feel calmer, sleep better, wake up easier, weigh less, have tantrums less, and study more.

Do you have a love/hate relationship with cooking and finding creative ways to make a meal? Do you want to have meals ready for on the go? Do you want to learn how to pack and cook on a trip?  The crock pot can become your best pal in the kitchen. I will also show some things for travel with a crock or an insta-pot or aroma steamer (the fast crock pot) —traveling with these is the best thing I have done for saving time and money on a trip and eating healthier.

Do you want to learn about desserts without sugar, honey, molasses, or artificial sweeteners…YES! they can still be sweet and delicious. (Tasting some goodies will be part of the class) Cure your sugar craving and need. Create new habits. Learn the empowerment you have inside you.

Would you like to learn massage techniques for calming, healing, bonding, making stronger and smarter babies.  Gather some friends and set a plan to take a 4 week course

DO YOU ALL GET THE IDEA? I have a class for many things. These are just a few of what I can do. If you have an idea for a class you would like me to put together, please contact me to ask. I CAN BRING THESE classes to your group, in your location (in my local area). I can do many of these classes, even the baby massage classes, online for those long distance.

visions

Hello everyone. I am striving to be on here blogging several times a week instead of just on Fridays, but Fridays for sure 🙂

Visions are something people fear for some odd reasons. I believe it stems from media and movies portraying it all incorrectly. I believe we need to change this.

Visions are amazing tools for our benefit. I have had many that have saved lives, turned events around for the better, simply freaked me out, and put me on a path for the life better than I dreamed.

I have a vision that is developing after years of it just being a picture in my mind. In the communities that surround me, I see connections in one place, classes and seminars teaching holistic pathway, counselors and therapists working side by side, and integration of holistic practices where people come to have whole health care. I see this more than ever in my life. I have people coming into my life with the skills for this conglomeration. I feel the calling I have always had is finally in the end of its gestation and about to be birthed, as beautiful as a newborn baby. Whole health clinic (or whatever name comes upon it), we will not be separated any longer, but connected as one!

I will keep you all posted, and if you feel you are someone interested in this amazing adventure with me, please contact me so we can meet and connect and keep it building. WE all need this. Our communities need this. Our world needs this. Lets start a thing together.

Remedies and More Remedies, Part 1 – Let the Healing Begin!

Biofeedback is amazing.  I am a biofeedback specialist with a SCIO device, a stress reduction facilitator.  (more information about biofeedback)  There is much to learn about the amazing mind, body, and soul from stress studies, and indicator patterns from the device.   I am going to give you some education about your body, some common, yet overlooked, perspective, and recommended remedies tried and true.

Heart Disease and Circulation indicators

part one

ADRENAL EXHAUSTION

Adrenal and kidney are in the same complex of the body…they are the battery of the body. They can become exhausted. Quote from Quantum Academies: ” They say that this battery is 50% rechargeable, which means you can exhaust it to a point, and by resting and rejuvenating, your body will naturally recharge. Maybe this is the intelligence behind resting on the seventh day.  However, if we push ourselves beyond normal  exhaustion, we may get a ‘second wind’ of energy, but at this point, we are dipping into our non-rechargeable half of the battery.”

THINK ABOUT THIS! I loved the 7th day thing because I am a firm believer in it, and it works. But, think on the rest of what was said. Listen to your inner core. Do you hear the truth of what you just read?

The adrenals are little glands perched atop our kidneys. Without them, our bodies could not adapt to stress.  I once knew a school teacher who relied on caffeine to get him through his workday for his entire career.  Caffeine and sugar are two of the worst dietary adrenal stressors, by the way.  By the time he retired, his adrenals were ‘toast’, and he was on medication on which his life depended.  Under-active and exhausted adrenals are a prime signature of chronic stress. A combination of poor nutrition in the first place along with accumulated habitual stress responses conspire to exhaust our batteries, sometimes beyond repair.   Under chronic stress, the adrenals can become initially overactive (hyperadrenia). Symptoms and conditions include: (males) muscular ‘square build’, baldness, excess body hair(testosterone)…(females) excess body hair, unusual physical strength, puffy face, fluid retention, rapid pulse, high blood pressure. This then turns into low adrenals (exhausted) due to chronic stress and poor nutritional support. Symptoms are: excess neck, head, and shoulder tension, sensitivity to bright lights, unusual craving for salt, ‘lump’ in the throat when upset, must lie down when stressed or upset, allergies-(especially skin, inhalant, asthma), form goosebumps easily, excess perspiration, cold sweats, high pitched voice when stressed, easily strained by noise, heart ‘pounds’.

The adrenals have an inner core and outer core. The inner (Medulla) is directly affected by Stress and the Sympathetic Nervous system (the gas pedal).  The outer (cortex) produces hormones that affect almost all bodily systems.  With a strong stress link, issues like chronic anxiety, fear, anger, and hypervigilance can lead to adrenal exhaustion.  The emotional correlates would be chronic defeatism, feeling overpowered, self-neglected, self-anger (depression) and lack of self-approval.  Knowing these issues points to the importance of considering adrenal exhaustion and supporting adrenal regeneration when dealing with these emotional themes.  (Addison’s disease and Cushing’s syndrome are more serious conditions of this exhaustion).  Hypoglycemia and menopausal symptoms are also low adrenal issues.

Daily minerals and vitamins to help recharge Adrenals:

B5 (pantothenic acid) depletion is a huge contributor to atrophy (shrinkage of the glands). Never take B’s single; use a multi B with 100 mg of each in the formula.

Vitamin C (2000 mg), Vitamin E (400-800 mg natural source, vegan source), B-12(sublingual), B-6, Potassium (1/4 tsp creme of Tartar daily), Adrenal Glandular (natural source or vegan)

A hair analysis is a lifeline to knowing what your body needs and the amounts it needs. I do these as well, long distance or local.  Contact me for more information on this amazing test (simple and inexpensive but worth its weight in gold).

LOOK FOR PART TWO, AND MORE PARTS, TO THIS SERIES OF BLOG  POSTS, covering more heart disease and circulation truths and indicators including low stomach acid/hypochloridia–HCL, chronic indigestion, low thyroid, pancreatic function, and mental-emotional.

Allergy sensitivities? Read more

Has your world been rocked with allergy sensitivities? I have a couple of articles from recent magazines I subscribe to, but before I pin those, I have a few things to say.

It has been two years since acquiring my alpha-gal allergy, a mammal product allergy, although I never had official diagnosis until a year ago April 2017.  It has changed so much in my life. I have had to read everything I pick up to check ingredients, ask everyone what is in their dishes at pot lucks and social events, and make sure I spray every time I leave the house with my natural tic/insect bug spray as it warms up. I have had a few episodes from cross contamination eating out or the air borne meat cooking, but mostly reaction free.  I have found so many products being put into the market now for food sensitivities, vegan, and wheat issues, that it is not hard to find alternatives. The alternatives are not the same however, and I miss dairy and other thing very much.  It will not every be easy. I feel that this is just a rising epidemic, and I believe I know why. Our foods and world is so corrupted and messed up that our human body guts are becoming weaker; our immune system weaken when the lower intestine, gut, and gall bladder weaken. Our bodies are not warding off the things that they have before.  Our population is so filled with chemical, antibiotic and pharma pollution; this pollution is why the body is overwhelmed. Note that this has occurred over generations of time. It is the building up in the genetics that causes junk like these allergies to take hold. I still believe there is a way to turn this trend in the individual body around and I am continuing to do so. Until then, I am going to help everyone I can to live with and through these allergies and sensitivities with the leading of the Father to give me the motivation and inspirations to do so.  I will have classes beginning soon, so watch for registration to begin within the next week. I will, with interest, try to do some online classes also.  I want to gather people together, because together we can teach each other and together we can  empower each other, and together we can create a new story individually to pass on.

The following articles are excellent, not long, and worth the time to read. I hope they help you in your path of understanding what is going on in your body and why.  Keep on keeping on.
