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.

I am ready

I am ready.

Ready for what you ask?

I am ready to sit next to you rather than across from you. I am willing to put the issue in front of us. I am ready to listen, ask questions, and accept that I may not fully understand the issue. I am ready to acknowledge what you do well.  I am ready to empower you.  I am ready to recognize your strengths and how you can use them to address your challenges.  I am ready to genuinely thank you for your efforts.  I am ready to talk to you about how resolving will lead you to your growth and opportunity.

I am ready to model the vulnerability and openness that I will see from you.

Oxygen – Where Did It Go?

Oxygen, a key element to our life on this planet

I have walked through this year with one of the most complex allergies I have ever heard of (Alpha-Gal, see previous posts for more info on this allergy).  I have bombed it with herbal therapy, nutritional/mineral medicine, natural cellular therapies, massage therapy, chiropractic, and biofeedback.  Being a health coach and wellness therapist, I was not going to allow this “weed” to own my system.  I began to consider oxygen because of the research into nutritional anemia. I noticed that when I took chlorophyll I felt better. I added it to the Breathe herbal tincture mix I used when I had an allergic reaction to a mammal product ( I also took charcoal).  The chlorophyll helped the side effects from the immune response, hormonal response and adrenal responses the Alpha-gal caused.

One day, I was at the chiropractor with a major migraine. We had discussed many times how this allergy had caused old injuries and nerve damage issues to reappear, and worse than before.  They also had a way of causing great trouble during certain times in my monthly cycle.  He suggested I try a new therapy, Hyperbaric because it was very successful in killing Lyme.  I decided that was an answer to prayer and began the therapy the following week. I have gone every day for almost 40 sessions (5 days a week).  I have had some amazing, noticeable changes in my body, sleep, energy, and hormones.  I believe the old injury issues have been released and are in the process of being completely healed.  I have not had a migraine once during these weeks. I believe it has killed the Alpha-gal and any Lyme I may have had. I will be testing the allergy in the coming two weeks for confirmation (self-diagnosis trials with food, and follow up allergy testing at the clinic). Along with all of that, I have mentally and emotionally been uplifted through this process. Anxiety is gone.

Oxygen,  a basic building block, in food, earth, air, blood, and water

We are supposed to be taking it in. In outdoor activity and in eating. Any and all issues will benefit and heal with enough oxygen in our blood cells, or cellular level of our systems. We begin with it (embryo oxygen tank) and we end with it (last breath).  Further back, Man was created with the “breath of life” – oxygen.  Our future with the Creator is made up of the Breath of Life, Oxygen –  for eternity.

I began with the title, Oxygen – Where Did It Go? It is on the decrease in this world. Our land, water, and air are depleted of this essential element.  There is proof all over the planet where lakes have dying fish from lack of oxygen, and farmland has to be supplemented constantly to make it produce.  Humans have weakened and reduced the living things of this earth, and we are now living with the consequences of it all.  Our only option is to supplement because even if things turned around right now, and everyone began to do right with the earth, it would take generations before the oxygen would come back to what it once was.

I believe the Earth does have a time of healing and renewing in the future. For now, however, I hope to give you some hope that there still are some amazing ways to retain that oxygen level in your bodies. Hyperbaric is one. Herbs are another (because they have not been overproduced like much of our food has). Watch for my blog to come on that subject later.

I’ve included several pictures of me in the Hyperbaric Chamber in this post so you can see what I’ve been doing.

Smoke and other summer obstacles

Hello everyone.

I intended to have a video blog, but I am not going to have one of those today. I am going to write a few things concerning the obstacles I, and many like me, have to deal with this time of year.  SMOKE. It is the time of year grills are fired up, and smokers are going daily.  This is not good for me. I am allergic to smoke from these devices because of a mammal allergy (AG). If you have followed my blogs, you know a lot about Alpha Gal (AG) mammal allergy. If this is the first time reading anything about such an allergy, then please visit my web page to learn more.  This is a crazy allergy. It is not just ingesting internal mammal foods that affects me, it is fumes also, and some times skin contact (which is why I wash a lot with vegan soap, and carry vegan Seventh Gen sanitizing wipes with me everywhere).  It is difficult to avoid the smoke this time of year. I am an outdoor person. I love to camp, hike, and go to the lakes and parks. This has been a tough week for me emotionally and physically, from allergic reactions just by doing what I love to do and go where I love to go.  I attended a family, outdoor, military retirement party, at a lake, and had a little ingestion of some grilling smoke from nearby campsites. We stayed at at a family member’s home and I had allergic reactions from the fumes of cooking beef at breakfast time.  We attended a ball game of a family member spontaneously, and that particular field had someone grilling (no other field had grilling, just this one where the food vendors were); I had to stay away and never watched the game, which was depressing.  We smoked turkeys all day for a camp event, and I had a minor reaction to the fumes of those, because of other things that had been cooked in the smoker/grill on other occasions. I stopped in to my local grocery to pick up a quick item, and got into smoke from the store grilling in front of the doorway, and it blowing across the parking lot.  It is everywhere, the fumes. I am not as bad as many who have AG, and do not go into anaphylactic shock, but I do react and it is scary no matter.  It is a delayed reaction, making it even more difficult to take care of.  I have my reactions 11:30-2 at night every time, no matter when the contact with mammal sources. I believe I am on track using natural means to rid this AG from my body, but it takes time, and until then, this is my life.

This allergy is just a life game changer.  I intend to keep on fully living, but all I do and every where I go is high risk.  I guess this is life for all humans depending upon the perspective.  We all live in certain risk at all times. An allergy just adds to the risk that much more vulnerability.  This is life for me for a while. This is life for many of my friends with food allergies, asthma, and other similar things that just take a bit of life out of our summer outdoor fun.  Let us be aware of these things and these people around us.

Become advocates to everyone you come in contact with; talk to managers of stores, restaurants, and parks when something can be improved.  It takes little effort to make a big difference . Keep living and doing the fun things you love to do.  Keep on figuring out ways to rid the nasty stuff our of our bodies. Keep on striving for healing. Be careful, but do not allow fear to rule.  Be prepared, but  not paranoid.

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.

Update On Me, and Amazing People Out There

Alpha-Gal allergy people have side effects, and it seems that gluten is a big one. I believe that it is due to the effects of the allergy in the blood and lower intestines that cause weakening of the lining and other issues, and then these side effect allergies occur.

I believe that this is all conquerable.  I had a side effect of egg and almond allergies but not anymore that I can tell.  I am able to eat gluten some again, but I am still careful because it causes my sleep to be affected some.  I plan to add a page very soon, for my local River Valley area and surrounding areas, to show the places where it is safe to eat with this mammal allergy.  I will have categories for places safe, places not safe, foods brands safe, links to the lists of ingredients to be aware of, lists of ingredients that can be both vegan and animal-based, companies that have been contacted to change their product and links for people to write in to ask them to have options for us (such as vegetable capsules, and plant glycerin and Vitamin D). The page will be free to start, and will eventually become a paid subscription service.

Be watching my Facebook page and my web page for updates and new blog posts as I am beginning to put stuff up again (I kind of got out of sync with the blogging and updating).  My book has taken a little delay also, so keep watching for it to be published by February. Be encouraged.   That is my update for now.

Carry on and keep healthy!

I leave you with some info I copied from the site for gluten-free info and help. It is the best I have seen, and I love the “watch” section.  I plan to have a section like this called “the alpha-gal watch” to keep updated like she does this gluten free site.

The Gluten-Free Dietitian web site was started to help you or someone you love successfully follow a safe and nutritious gluten-free diet. I am a nutrition consultant who has specialized in celiac disease and the gluten-free diet since 1996.

If you are new to the diet, the Gluten-Free Diet Basics and Resources pages will help you get started.

Timely information on the gluten-free diet can be found in the Gluten-Free and Nutritious Too! newsletter.

If you are looking for books written by me on the gluten-free diet visit the Books page.

Finally, if you have any questions about the gluten-free diet, please visit the Contact page.

Bartonella and Other tick-borne Transmitted “Weeds”

I recently shared some information from Dr. Bill Rawls about the stealth microbe Borrelia. Hopefully you’ll find his information on Understanding Bartonella (last updated 3/1/17) just as useful.

Bartonella is typically spread by biting insects (fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, sandflies, lice, chiggers, biting flies, scabies, mites, and even louse-eating spiders), but can also be transmitted by contaminated bites (of animals), scratch (cat scratch), and ingestion.

Infection by any bartonella species is called Bartonellosis.

There is a lot of information in the article – what Bartonella is, how it can be spread, typical symptoms, and information on typical and natural solutions.

Dr. Rawls is a physician who overcame Lyme disease through natural herbal therapy. You can learn more about bartonella in Dr. Rawls’ new best selling book, Unlocking Lyme. Also be sure to check out Vital Plan, Dr. Rawls’ naturally powerful immune support protocol and get your free personalized supplement recommendation.
