Urinary concerns, for the Ladies

Concerns for the Ladies and the urinary system


I am hoping this is going to work... new website format, so one never knows.


Cranberry Juice. 

We know it is great for helping get rid of kidney stones.

It is great for urinary tract infections. 

And now.... how about this... It can help regulate the bladder! 

So it seems for a few of us, cranberry juice helps calm the bladder?

Yes, it is beginning to seem so. 

Less dribbling? Fewer trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night?

Sounder sleep? 

Yeah, I know. Interesting. 

For years we know that Cranberry juice aids in ridding stones out of the kidneys, but some Drs. believe 

excess could increase the stone formation. Jury is still out on that one. 

And we know that Cranberry juice is good for cleansing the urinary system when there has been a Urinary Tract

Infection.

It also is used a preventative for UTIs.  

So what about sleep? What about waking for nighttime urination?

Among some of my clients and family and self.... it seems to help this!

Who knew?!


So if you're experiencing the night time urination, it might pay off to try 4-8 oz of cranberry juice in the evening. 


This made me question, 'Why?'

I started looking at the components of cranberry juice.

Nothing out of the ordinary, just good stuff.

Vit C, E, B6, K1, copper and manganese. And the some stuff which is good,  A-type proanthocyanidins, which prevents Bacteria from sticking to the tract. 

Okay, that's all good. But then what?


What else is being affected?

It seems the LIVER is being affected, for the positive!

And the liver has a direct affect on sleep!

Okay... we are really getting somewhere now!

We know that if we detox the liver, sleep improves. 

The liver becomes active in the early morning 1-3 am, according to Chinese Medicine.  

It seems the liver can be POSITIVELY AFFECTED by cranberry juice! 

GREAT!!! This then may improve sleep.


So the suggestion would be, try some Cranberry juice, use a good quality, 4-8 oz in the evening. 

Then we come to the tablets. Yes! These can be used and they seem to be effective also, 2 in the evening. 


I will not promise this will work for everyone, but so far we have had some very positive feed back.

We can always schedule a Body Code session for more information about the state of the body. 


What about the gentlemen? Well, they have a few other issues to deal with. It won't hurt to try this, but I would suggest more intense evaluations with a Body Code session. 


Have a great week with lots of good sleep!

Blessings,

Hk

Omega 3 Knees!

Posted on June 22, 2019 at 3:34 PM Comments comments ()
And we are almost into summer...well the calendar says we should be. 
Hope your weather is cooperating.

So what are some of your summer plans? Any hikes? Are the knees holding you back? 

I recently met with some 'almost' seniors and was a bit taken back by how many were dealing with knee pain. Yuck.
I consider most pain optional and I personally like to opt out.

I have addressed this several times, but whenever I experience something positive, I like to share. I want everyone to be as happy and healthy as possible.

Knee Pain?
What can be some of the causes?
Cartilage breakdown.
Misalignment of the pelvis
Misalignment of the vertebrae.
Pathogens.
Toxins.
Weak tendons.
Weak muscles.          
Adrenal issues can affect the left knee. 
Gall Bladder can affect the right knee.
Energy blockages in the knees. 
Lack of proper supplements.
Lack of exercise. 

I think this is the short list, I am sure there is more. 
It will be a bit different for different people. 

Body Code work can help solve the puzzle as to why there is pain. 
Then we can decide how to deal with it.

There are supplements we can choose from.
Glucosamine/chondroitin helps build tissue.
Gelatin will also help build tissue.
Vit C is a must. It can be a natural anti-inflammatory as well as a catalyst for healing. 
And one I have come across lately is the Omega 3. Not only is it good for bones, but is also good for tissue and joints. 

So I started taking an Omega 3 fish oil from the North Atlantic. I finally did a breakdown on my own nutritional needs and thought this would help in some of the stuff I was trying to address, such as eyes, hair etc. 

After the first month, that little annoying knee irritation seemed to be not so annoying. The knees weren't really sore, just tender at times. 

After month number two, I very seldom noticed the knees. Okay. Stairs? Hmm.... not much problem. 

After month number three, I forgot about the knees.

I have worked for sometime in cartilage rebuilding with gelatin, glucosamine and chondroitin, Vit C and minerals, just general good supplements. And I was taking an EFA, Essential Fatty Acid, complex with flax seed, borage and some fish oil. Apparently, not enough fish oil for what I was needing. 

When we look at oils, traditionally we use Flax for women and Fish for men. These have the precursors in the oils for hormone production. I would suggest testing to see which your body is in need of. Obviously, it is not a 'one size fits all' situation.

OMEGA 3 FISH OIL. 
What can it help? Ready for the novel?
Depression
Eye health
Brain health
  This is absolutely necessary when pregnant for the developing child's                 
  brain. 
  ADHD? You can get bubble gum flavored fish oil for children...and it 
  is shockingly good! 
  Alzheimers or dementia issues? Yep... this and maybe some Vit E. 
  Autism? This requires some definite helps. An evaluation between Cod 
  Liver oil or Omega 3 should be considered. 
Heart health
Blood factors, lowering triglycerides.
  Also will thin the blood, do not take if you are on blood thinners. This will
  be between you and your Dr. 
Insulin factors, helps with diabetics 
Joint and bone health, actually can boost the calcium levels in the bones.
Liver, helps with that fatty liver disease.
Skin, lots of nice moisture!
Sleep
And that is a partial list. 

When rebuilding, do not expect to have over-night results. We are so used to having everything quickly we become impatient. So guys, men, you are notorious for this! You cannot take this for three days and give up because you didn't see any improvement. Go for three weeks and we can talk. 

How much? Again, more is not always better. 
Two capsules day, is a good start. If your working with the brain, try doing one of these capsules at night as this is when the body does repairs. You will be giving building materials at the right time. 
For children, we can work with 1/2 tsp. 
And after healing has occurred, we can go to maintenance doses of supplements. And remember, the body IS DESIGNED to heal!

If in doubt, don't! 
Yes, you can be allergic to something here. That can be addressed if you feel this is the case. We can check. 
If you're not sure about this or any supplement, get some good advice. 
And check with your healthcare provider if you are on some prescription medications. 

Okay! See you on the trail!
Blessings,
Hkelly






 
 






Depression.... THERE IS HELP!

Posted on September 1, 2014 at 10:24 AM Comments comments ()
After this month of mourning due to our loss of Robbin Williams, I thought we would hit this DEPRESSION topic.

If you are alive, you no doubt have had a round of this.
SYMPTOMS:
No energy, loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness, self loathing, unloved
Feeling trapped 
Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness
Loss of interest in daily activities/ no zest for life
Appetite or weight changes, uncontrolled eating
Sleep changes/sleeping beyond normal times, not sleeping
Anger or irritability
Reckless behavior.
Everybody has an off day or two or week. If yours is lingering beyond a couple of weeks, ask an honest person what they think about your symptoms. And know there is help out there for you. You CAN get to a better place. 

SOME THINGS WE CONSIDER:
Hormones after pregnancy will often generate a depression.
Stress is a big factor for depression. 
Change is always uncomfortable, and it doesn't matter whether it is a good change or a negative one. Lifestyle change, marriage, divorce, death, birth
Chronic health issue causing pain, this can be very depressing
And there is more probably, we just don't know everything about everything.

Did you know you can also see a symptom for depression in the eyes? Yep, in the brain flare area in the top of the iris. We would then also look for the cause. 

So holistically what are approaches for countering Depression?
Let's start with the physical stuff. And please understand... this isn't everything!

B-VITAMINS. A full range of Bs is a very good place to start. If you're in the midst of a depression, go for the B-100s. These are the BRAIN vitamins! They help balance the brain. Sometimes people are allergic or intolerant to the Bs, this needs to be evaluated and addressed. B vitamins are water soluble and do not build up in the system.

Vit D. This is the sunshine vitamin. Many seasonal disorders are helped when Vit D3 is added to the diet. A maintenance dosage is 4-5000 U a day makes a world of difference! If you are very depleted, you may need a higher dose for a week or two. I have heard the "But I am taking 400 U because that is what was recommended."  Well, this is your choice. You are overdosing when you take over 10,000 U a day... and that is questionable. On a nice sunny summer afternoon, your body will make up to 50,000 U and you usually don't have much illness in the summer. Go figure. Vit. D is highly under emphasized in my always humble opinion.

EFAs, Essential Fatty Acids, are also important. These help feed the brain. Flaxseed oil is good for women and Fish oil is good for men. I really like the EFAs Dr. Wallach developed, see products page. I must mention some people are allergic or intolerant of oils, this sometimes is why they don't see results from some of their supplements. We can address this.  

Adequate PROTEIN will help keep the sugar level stable in the body and brain. Nuts make a really good snack, and they are loaded with protein. 

Sometimes a good MINERAL SUPPLEMENT is necessary. We can do an evaluation for this and all the other supplements in question. 

Now let's address emotional issues
If you have to go through and airport and drag all of these suitcases with you, it will be exhausting. Going through life and dragging all this with you is exhausting on a long term level... and it can become depressing. 
This week I had a great experience with a client. She has suffered from depression for years. Her husband died 30 years ago, a good friend dropped her a few years later.
She had a miserable, abusive childhood.
So after two sessions addressing the reasons for depression, Client's friend calls me and says they aren't sure how to handle the 'NEW' girl! This client is happy and singing! And.. moving forward with her life now! This isn't an instant fix, it takes about a week to see the difference, but in this case it was quite fast. 
A heart wall, is created by the body as a virtual shield placed around the heart to protect it. This happens when the heart has been close to breaking, the body feels the need to protect it. The only trouble is this shield is made up of the negative energies lying around in the body. This shield, heart wall, prevents the messages of the heart from easily getting out, like wise it prevents messages to the heart to easily arrive. And lets remember, the heart is the second brain, it IS important. The heart TELLS the brain what to feel. The brain does not have feelings. I love you with all my.... HEART! Follow your HEART! I left my HEART in...We never sing about our brain.
So for the Client, we released several heart walls, created at different critical times in her life. 
We also released negative emotions from certain events and memories in her life.
I love watching this transformation! And hearing about it!

Should you start feeling better and you are on medication, DO NOT STOP YOUR MEDICATION WITHOUT YOUR DR.S HELP! Your medication program is between you and your Dr. and he needs to help you wean off. 
After sessions, there have been people who find they can reduce their levels of medication and some find they actually can wean off of medication, with their Dr.s help.

If there was one message that needs to be broadcast, it is...
                          THERE IS HELP! Please don't give up!

Why not go for a miracle? There are some great blessings awaiting those who go after them.

Have a happy week!

Have a toxic Brain?

Posted on May 10, 2014 at 12:13 PM Comments comments ()
In the family we have had an accident which I am not ready to able talk about just yet. But lets say it was an accident and there was brain injury/trauma. So I have been dealing with brain issues for a month or what feels like a lifetime. I have learned soooo much!

Lately, I have been seeing lots and lots of TOXINS and toxins in the brain. So where do these toxins come from? I think mostly life. There are some we can avoid, some we should avoid and others we need to just deal with.

What can we avoid? How about some of those chemicals in the water.
If your using fluoridated water, you are cramming the hypothalamus and pituitary with fluoride. You might want to look up some info about fluoride and decide if you want to continue doing that. 

There are also bromides, which affects glands, from bleached flours, use unbleached. Might want to look that one up also. 

And then there are the preservatives in our foods. Do you know mortician now uses about 1/2 the embalming fluid as was necessary 60 years ago? That's right. You are pickling yourself. Where as bodies used to need to be embalmed with a day or so, now can wait several days before breakdown. I know somewhere there is a person thinking this is okay…

We have toxins on the foods we eat. They are called pesticides and fertilizers.
Many of these are hormone, estrogen, based. Does that not get you a little concerned? Do you think these could possible affect the master glands like the hypothalamus which regulates hormones? Uhh… yeah….
Organic isn't cheap, but neither is ill health.


I have been working with a baby who was born to a drug addicted mother. I think this is one of the saddest situations. By testing, we learn he is loaded with toxins from drugs; his brain, his glands, his organs. Yes, there are things that have been done to help him. But it is quite the process. Meanwhile, the child is miserable, as well as his caretakers. Then as recommended  the state, vaccines were introduced into a body and brain with issues of toxicity already present. At this juncture, I will ask you please read the package insert from vaccine company, before you get the vaccine. It is online if you can't get it otherwise. Prevention of toxicity is far easier and cheaper than a clean up with it's questionable outcome.


Like I said, it will be hard to avoid all the toxicities in our society. But if we do no more than the best we can and avoid as many toxins as possible, we will be ahead of the game. 

Now, back to the accident in our family. There was brain trauma. Because of the lifestyle chosen by the mother of the family, there weren't many toxins in this child's brain. We were ahead of the game as we started into recovery with this child. And I will add he is recovering very well, an answer to many prayers. And as he has needed the drugs for treatment, we detox as we go. It has been a very interesting and rewarding experience. More on that in a later post.

Please, try to have a less toxic week!

Marijuana….THE REST OF THE STORY….

Posted on January 27, 2014 at 9:48 AM Comments comments ()
Marijuana….THE REST OF THE STORY…
Well, this could be a sacred cow for some people.
Of course I am not going to condone the use, but I will state, used in the appropriate circumstances marijuana use is or should be acceptable.

I have a friend whose son suffers from extreme seizures and headaches since an auto accident of several years ago.
He uses marijuana to alleviate the headaches and seizures. It has worked for several years and improved the family dynamic,  but it has not cured or thoroughly controlled the symptoms. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to work with this individual.

And now we see some children with seizures use this and it halts the majority of seizures. Well, this would be a miracle! But I would also like a chance to check for the imbalances which could be causing these seizures.

So I am not afraid to say that used carefully marijuana could be of benefit.
I am also not afraid to say you need the REST OF THE STORY before you consider this 'harmless.'
I sat in lectures with Dr. Bradley Nelson and others. Marijuana is not the benign little drug that has been portrayed. 
Upon autopsy of a user, there has been found a mold over a part of the brain. I learned this a couple of years ago. Crazy huh?
In the last few months, articles have been written about the 'mold' on the marijuana plants. I think this would cause some concern for the thinking individual. You can always do a search on this. It appears you can/will be set up for fungi problems when/if you use this.

I have a friend, an RN,  who is headed to the local jail today to visit her step son. 
He is out of control and is suffering from severe paranoia. 
What is this paranoia contributed to?
Marijuana use. He has been a faithful recreational user of marijuana. Now he is in state care and there isn't a real time frame for when he won't be.

And then there is the issue of 'JOINTS'. It seems that marijuana will break down the joints in the body. Maybe that is why it used to be referred to as a 'joint?' Just a thought, I don't know. Actually a user can be muscle tested and the body will tell you which large 'body' joint will break down first; knee, hip or shoulder, take your pick.

If you have been a user and want not to be a user, there is help out there. I would highly recommend a session to check for emotional reasons for the use. You will also need a cleanse, especially if you have picked up a mold issue. There are several things that can be done to get to a better place.

I heard it said the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today. So if you need to make changes… 

There is always just so much to know!!! Don't you love it?! 

Make it a healthy week!

MIND POWER!!! You say it, you make it!

Posted on July 6, 2013 at 3:19 PM Comments comments ()
I wanted to share some of the concepts I learned about while at the recent Body Code Seminar. Then I spoke with a friend this morning and realized what the first concept will be: The power of the mind.

Do you want to manifest good health? Well, start on the path with a healthy mind. I am grateful we have abilities now to tap into that subconscious part and figure out what we need to do to make things better for ourselves.

Dr. Pesek gives a startling example of the power of the mind. The mother of one of his students gives this personal story. Her grandmother had recently passed. The grandmother had Alzheimer's. After the grandmother passed, the student's mother made a comment such as, "I guess that makes me the old lady now." And 2 weeks later, the student's mother came down with her very own Alzheimer's.

That was the story which came to mind this morning as I was visiting with a gentleman whose wife passed nearly two years ago. He is very much depressed and stated he wants to die. He spoke of being old (He ISN'T that old!)...and put me in that category with him(there are things I would like to accomplish before I move on, so I wasn't really happy with this). I suggested he come and get some emotional releases done. After any trauma, and especially one such as a death, it is nice to let some of that baggage go. And yes, we do see negative energies such 'no will to live', manifested. After a release of such, the report is, "I feel so much lighter."  One still will have to work through the hurt, but it can be done a bit easier with fewer obstacles present.

There are tons of positive stories as well, such as miraculous healings and the overcoming of extreme circumstances. The key to these would be THE MIND!

Our brain will program for the body what ever we want to be programed! That is just plain scary! But yet, how wonderful! 

Another story comes to mind from my most recent seminar. Two women went into the hospital. One had a cancer, the other had stomach issues. Well, they mixed the tests up and proceeded to tell the cancer patient she was fine. The one with stomach issues was told to get her affairs in order, she had about 3 months.

You can guess the outcome. As was prophesied, the woman with the stomach issues died almost months to the day of the diagnosis. The other woman with the cancer lived several years.

There are numerous examples of the power of the mind in scripture. How about, "As a man thinketh, so is he."

I would suggest to pray like it is up to God and work like it is up to you, seeking all avenues. There are so many options God has placed within our reach to help us. My role would be to help you find those things blocking you from accomplishing what you desire. 

For sure.... KEEP THOSE THOUGHTS HAPPY! They define your future!

Have a great week!
