Health Basics

Acid Water

Acid water: While many, if not most drinking water sources in the US are slightly alkaline, many, many others are slightly-to-very acidic. Water from shallow wells, springs, rivers, creeks, lakes are very likely to be acidic. It’s best to check your water and know approximately what the pH of it is. The pH of water can change from season to season and your body can handle acid water to some extent but drinking acid liquids over time can wreak havoc on your body.

Aura and Aura Colors

I’ve spent quite a bit of time over the years wishing I could see auras and spending money on videos, books, and really cheapo (but expensive) blue glasses so I could learn how to see the aura consistently, but I have not been able to see auras consistently as of yet. The one thing I did notice when studying all these materials was none of the resources really provided a full list of the colors and how to interpret them. That really bugged me, so I took a few days and gleaned the internet finding resources on the color combinations.

Breathing and Meditation

Breathing and Meditation go hand in hand and are essential for optimal health. How do YOU meditate? What works for you? What do you feel in your body? I know I’m not the only one to admit that I have a difficult time meditating. Here are some answers I received from the above question on an interactive Conscious Evolution (way back when) in addition to my own exploration on the topic the last couple of decades. I hope one of these methods will help you on your meditative journeys.

Cell Phone, EMF and 5G Safety

Radiation Shields and cell phone usage: People ask me all the time if they should put those radiation shield gimmicks on their phones, computers and other electrical equipment. Save your money. These shields give us a false sense of security by reducing connection quality. The phone is then forced to transmit at higher powers with higher radiation.

Chlorine and Chloramine Hazards

By showering in chlorinated and chloramine-laced water we are directly exposing ourselves through the skin and respiratory tract with a concentration of chlorine equaling up to 50 glasses of chlorinated water a day! Just one more major chemical we are exposing ourselves to. It is important to get and use a good shower filter! You can purchase a good one for about $40.

Chlorine in Drinking Water

Chlorine in drinking water. ..OK, so why not just minimize the exposure and shower or bathe less frequently? Well, 30% of all body toxins are excreted through the largest organ of our body–the skin. Bathing every day can be a critical key for those with chronic diseases and for those who want to prevent disease. Not bathing can increase the acid buildup in our body. Disease processes thrive in acid environments.”

Coffee Enemas

Now why would anyone want to do an enema, let alone a coffee enema? Well. . . Coffee enemas are used routinely in the process of detoxification to stimulate the liver, control pain, nausea, general nervous tension and depression. To make enemas the most effective, the patient should lie on their right side with both legs drawn up close to the abdomen. . .The caffeine is absorbed from the fluid within ten minutes through the hemorrhoidal veins directly and is then transported directly through the portal veins and into the liver. This stimulates the production of bile and gets that elimination system moving.

DAMNIT Scheme for Diagnosis

This is a diagnosis scheme taught to us in our veterinary radiology class. We’d stand in front of X-ray viewing boxes for hours looking at radiographs saying “DAMNIT, what could this be?. . .D is for degenerative, disorders, developmental”. . .duh. . .until our eyes blurred or we just didn’t care anymore! The DAMNIT Scheme for diagnosis. Of course I’ve added a few extra terms you don’t need when looking at radiographs, but you get the general idea. It covers a lot of ground.

Detoxification Tips and Tricks

Detoxification is a part of a health program. Disease happens through poor eating habits, overwork, stuffing your emotions, eating too many cooked foods, too much sugar, salt, caffeine, drugs, vaccines, tension, depression, lack of proper rest, lack of exercise, environmental contamination of the air/water/food and the retention of metabolic wastes (constipation). The only effective way to “cure” disease is to eliminate the causes. The body should be cleansed in this order: Bowels, liver, kidneys, blood and lymph.

Far Infrared

In the 1960’s NASA discovered mineral compounds that were able to generate far infrared waves. Businesses world-wide jumped at the opportunity to produce a wide variety of products using these new fiber compounds. I use many of these products for my own health such as FIR comforters, knee and wrist wraps, and one of my favorite kitchen gadgets, a FIR ceramic thawing plate.

Fingernail Analysis

Fingernail Analysis: A good practitioner of this art can look at a patient’s nails, tongue, eyes, skin and even (if they are really good) shoe wear and the pattern of moles and freckles and be able to tell which organs are weak and which are healthy.  Since the nails are the last to receive oxygen because they are the farthest from the heart, they are often the first to show signs of disease processes.

Fluoride in Water

The fluoride added to drinking water is hydrofluoric acid and is man-made. In the hydrofluoric acid form, fluoride has no nutrient value at all and it is one of the most caustic of industrial chemicals. Today more than 60% of US municipal water supplies are fluoridated. Huge amounts of kids have little white fluorosis spots on their teeth from too much fluoride.

Glandulars, Protomorphogens and Cytosol Extracts

Glandulars are whole organs that are dried at low temperatures and ground up then put into capsules. They are given for general support of various organs. Protomorphogens however are like homeopathics. They promote healing over time. Protomorph products are composed of nuclear proteins and used to supply a better RNA/DNA template so that the body can assemble available nutrients to repair damaged tissue in the glands being treated. What differentiates protomorphogens from glandulars from cytosol extracts is the patented extraction process. Most people respond to glandulars with fewer side effects. It’s hard to build an allergy to Protomorphogens.

Homeopathic Use

Homeopathic Use: One case I recall where the woman proved the homeopathic was when she was taking some Herpes drops every day (for prevention). She came down with a whopping case of herpes symptoms then wondered where she had gone wrong. I wondered why she was ordering so much remedy (and this is why I only dispense to people after establishing a client-patient relationship) but she kind of tricked me. She said she had lost a bottle then she wanted another bottle to keep at work and I didn’t realize she was taking it when it wasn’t necessary.

Nitrates and Nitrites in Water

Nitrates and nitrites in our drinking water: In 1974, Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act. This law requires EPA to determine safe levels of chemicals in drinking water which do or may cause health problems. These non-enforceable levels, based solely on possible health risks and exposure, are called Maximum Contaminant Level Goals.

Radon in Water

Radon is produced by the radioactive decay of radium in the ground. Granites and other rocks may contain high concentrations of radium and produce significant amounts of radon. Aquifers in these rocks accumulate the radon, increasing the concentration in the water. The highest radon concentrations in water are found in ground water supplies.  Radon is more common in smaller ground water supplies . . . those serving 25 or fewer people.

Shoe Wear Evaluation

Your shoes  and shoe wear can give us clues to what is wrong in your body by evaluating where you put pressure when you walk. Sometimes people shift their weight away from certain reflexology points to avoid a mild form of discomfort. At other times you will put extra pressure on reflexology points to stimulate energy and circulation to area. This is only one of the body’s attempts to heal what ails it.

Shower Filters

Shower filters. How many people have them? Do you need a shower filter? It has been shown that our body takes in more chemicals during a ten minute shower than from drinking a gallon of the same water. Are you aware of the fact that dermal absorption and inhalation of chlorine and other chemicals while showering has now been linked to breast cancer, bladder cancer, asthma and other ailments? During a hot shower the pores of our skin open and allow for an accelerated rate of absorption.

Spring Water

Springs producing spring water are susceptible to contamination by surface water, especially during rainstorms. Contamination sources include livestock, wildlife, crop fields, forestry activities, septic systems, and fuel tanks located upslope from the spring outlet. Changes in color, taste, odor, or flow rate indicate possible contamination by surface water. To protect springs you can take the following measures.

Urinalysis Interpretation

The urinalysis measures the presence and amount of a number of chemicals in the urine, which reflect much about the health of the kidneys, along with cells that may be present in the urine. We try to identify crystals, bacteria, yeast, red cells, white cells (indicating infection), something called a cast (which is a clump of sloughed cells from inside the tiny renal filtration tubules), sperm and even the occasional parasite. This lets us know if we are dealing with infection, diet or metabolism disorders, and what part of the urinary system is in trouble.

Water Basics

Private Wells and private water systems may have high levels of contaminants. Private water systems may have improperly sealed (or unsealed) well heads and/or unsealed or open holding tanks. The risks here are the presence of algae, decaying plant matter, insects, animal waste products and bacteria. If you live in farming country, live near a feedlot, or near a poorly designed septic system, Nitrates can be a serious problem, as well. High nitrate levels and that of some other contaminants can be seasonal. You may need to test for nitrates more than once during the year.

Water Filters

Water Filters. Do you need one? In America we use more than 75,000 toxic chemicals every day and new ones are being developed every year. We are learning the hard way that many of the chemicals we use ultimately appear in the water we drink. Through the natural processes of the hydrologic cycle Mother Earth recycles the same water over and over. She does not create “new” water. As we use more chemicals, the levels of those chemicals in our water supply increases proportionately.

What Causes Disease?

The body’s natural state is health, so what causes disease? Disease happens on a cellular level. All disease is ultimately a breakdown in function of the body’s cells. When this happens, it creates “fertile soil” for the dis-ease process.  This breakdown is accomplished by less than perfect eating habits, stress, stuffing emotions, eating too many cooked foods and too much sugar, salt, caffeine, drugs, vaccines, tension, depression, lack of proper sleep, lack of exercise, environmental contamination of the air/water/food and the retention of metabolic wastes (constipation, lack of sweating, blocked lymphatic channels). The only effective way to “cure” disease is to eliminate the causes.

What is a Normal Bowel Movement?

Normal bowel movements should be brown to light brown, formed but not hard or too soft, cylindrical but not flattened on any side, fairly bulky and full bodied but not compact, easy to pass, and it shouldn’t have an extremely foul smell. Bowel movements should be in one piece, about the size and shape of a banana being tapered at the end. Sometimes this will not be discernable if the feces breaks up in the toilet. Some people feel that if the body is absorbing all the minerals from the food that the stool will float. Others believe that the stool should sink. I think the important thing is that there are no air bubbles in the stool and that it doesn’t drop like a brick in the toilet. It should be somewhere in between.

What is a Rule Out

Say you go to a doctor because your ankle hurts. You took a pretty bad fall and twisted it. We’d make some basic assumptions from the clue of trauma and twisting motion to rule in sprain, strain, fracture (compound, compressed, or spiral), and periosteal bruising. These would be high on the rule out list. But let’s say we asked some more questions and found out that you were 80 years old, arthritic, haven’t taken care of yourself and cancer runs in your family.

Which Alternative Healing Techniques are Best For Me?

After many years of exploration, I have learned that there is something good to learn from everybody. Don’t “throw the baby out with the bath water” if you don’t vibrate positively with a certain healer. Glean what works for you and move on. Don’t be afraid to explore new healing modalities. Shifting and returning to practitioners you have not seen for several years also helps. As you grow, so does your lens of perspective and understanding. What one practitioner says to you today may mean something totally different to you years from now. What you don’t understand, put on the “Cosmic Bookshelf.”
