Omega 3 Knees!

Posted on June 22, 2019 at 3:34 PM Comments comments (25)
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






 
 






About those knees.....

Posted on January 7, 2019 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (14)
It is going to be spring before we know it! Yeah!
So are you ready for the spring thing...gardening, walking and other adventures? Is dealing with knee pain going to be on your agenda?

I recently met with some 'almost' seniors and was a bit taken back by how many were dealing with knee pain. Yuck.

So what cause knee pain? 
Cartilage breakdown.
Misalignment of the pelvis
Weak tendons.
Weak muscles.  
Toxins or pathogens.         
Adrenal issues can affect the left knee. 
Gall Bladder can affect the right knee.
Energy blockages in the knees. 
Lack of proper supplements.

I think this is the short list. It will be a bit different for different people. 
You get to choose how you want to deal with this. 

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 joint tissue.
Gelatin will also help build tissue.
Good mineral supplementation is always a good idea.
Vit C is a must. It can be a natural anti-inflammatory as well as a catalyst for healing. 
Vit. E may be of help also.
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. 
 
And remember... the body IS designed to heal. We can help it along to do the best it can. We will get older, the alternative isn't that great, but we don't have to be 'old.'

Wishing you a Happy New Year and happy knees to go with it!
Blessings....

Anti-aging, the skin! We're on it!!!

Posted on January 6, 2017 at 2:41 PM Comments comments (4)
ANTI-AGING, we're talking about the skin this time!
I am all for it...naturally of course. 
I have several daughters. I spent some time with them this last week and we started talking about skin, wrinkles, premature aging and the rest. The fact is, we ARE going to age, thankfully so as the alternative isn't all that great. The goal here would be to do it in the least painful way possible. 
 
For my age, and I am eternally 59 at this point, I have pretty good skin. So because my daughters are interested in MORE anti-aging info, I thought to share some of what is out there, at least what I have available right now. There is always more to know, this by no means is everything! No one knows everything!
These are just things which have come across my radar in the past few years. 

I occasionally have used very expensive products, but I find you don't need the most expensive products for good results. And there is also the nutritional factors here. What supplements does one use for warding off extra aging? Like I said, this is what is on my screen right now. It is NOT everything, I am sure.

Here we go!

B VITAMINS
I once read that one symptom of B 6 Vitamin deficiency was wrinkling around the mouth. Enough said! It isn't going to hurt to take a good brand of B-50 or B-100 complex. These are usually very balanced and you won't be getting too much of one or the other. B Vitamins are water soluble, so don't be afraid of getting too much, your kidneys will take out what you don't need. Beef, poultry, fish, garlic and greens are good sources of B 6 also. 

BETA CAROTENE
This converts to Vit A in the body. This is very much anti-wrinkling. Because it is water soluble, you can take it with very little fear of overdosing. Your kidneys will eliminate the excess. I take 50,000 u a day of this, you can use up to 75,000 a day before you start overdosing. (And this is also VERY good for your eyes!)

VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is great for many things. It also generates rapid cell repair. This is good for the skin. You may want to add 1000 mg a day of this to your diet also.

GELATIN!
And guess what else builds collagen? Yep... old fashioned gelatin. It is marvelous for the joints, the eyes, the hair, the nails AND even the SKIN! So how much do I use? 
Well, I use those packets from the grocery store and use one of those a day. I just blend it into my smoothie. It doesn't taste. After a few months, you may find you can maintain with 3-4 packets a week. I have one daughter who gets her gelatin in bulk from health food source on line. In that case she takes 1 tablespoon a day. (And this is marvelous if you have some joint pain!)

GLUCOSAMINE/CHONDROITIN
These also are some of the building blocks of collagen. And collagen keeps the skin elastic and full.  You may take a couple of these a day. You may end up not needing as much later just to maintain. (Also very good for your joints!)

EFAs
These are Essential Fatty Acids. Flaxseed is very good for women, it is a precursor to estrogen. Fish oil for men, flax for women. 
Depending again on your diet, 1000 u a day is a good start.

HORMONES?
Yep, we want those balanced. Some breakouts can be attributed to estrogen imbalance. 

MOISTURIZER!
My mother-in-law, RIP, had great looking skin. Her secret she said was to, "Moisturize, moisturize, MOISTURIZE!" I use a product called Dermae. It has Vit A in it among other natural ingredients. 

MINERALS!
If there is a shortage of minerals in the diet, this can also affect the skin. It is HIGHLY SUGGESTED you get a good mineral supplement. 

WATER! 
It is the number one element to enhance the skin. I had an esthetician(skin specialist) tell me she could tell who drinks enough water and who didn't by how wrinkled their skin was. I immediately started drinking more water! You need to be drinking about half your weight in ounces. You weigh 150 lbs, you drink 75 ounces of water a day. And this needs to be GOOD water. For sure it should be filtered in some way. And you need to be careful of bottled water, sometimes they have fluoride added and you don't want that. We can go into that more in another blog. 

ASEA GEL
Then one of the products I really like is ASEA GEL. It really nourishes the cell structure of the skin. I use it at night. 

Here is one 'interesting' idea: 
HEMORRHOID OINTMENT? 
Yep. It is purported to shrink tissue. So somebody somewhere decided to try it for the wrinkles on the face and had some great results with it. But there is one thing you might note, the ointment which will work the best for this comes from Canada. They have the yeast extract and shark liver oil which are some of the key ingredients for success. 

HYALURONIC ACID
This is added to many skin formulas. It is to help collagen formulation. I think there are some valuable applications with this. It is probably worth a try.

No doubt there are some things here which some gals will not be able to take or use as they, "Break me out!" Well, I wouldn't do that either! But let me remind you, this can be treated! If you are allergic or intolerant, you can always have a session to address that.

If you have questions about dosages, we can address that also.

I did some work for a gal who had a 'pregnancy mask' on part of her face. She was now 40 and wanted to know if I could work on it for her. Frankly, I was a bit skeptical and could not guarantee results. But we did some releases and about 10 months later her son noticed her face and asked what happened. Now without makeup, the dark mask around her face was gone. Well, that was inspirational! So having some darkness on both sides of my neck, I found I had a reason for them and did some releases. Are they gone? No, it hasn't been 10 months yet...BUT! They now are getting very molted looking, breaking up I guess you would say. So now I watch and wait. Many times there are toxicities in the skin which need to be addressed, some are related to gland toxicities. Thankfully, we can address those also. 

I HIGHLY suggest any supplements you take are of a good quality. Cheap isn't always the best, and also at times when you buy the most expensive you're paying for packaging. Just use caution, and get some suggestions. 

Right now I am researching which oils may be of benefit to the skin. So there will more coming on that. There just always is so much more to know!

We are going to age. We can do it well. But please remember, the best thing about your face will ALWAYS be your SMILE!
Keep smiling!
  "Put a smile on your kisser and someone may put a kiss on your smiler!"

Blessings...

Marijuana….THE REST OF THE STORY….

Posted on January 27, 2014 at 9:48 AM Comments comments (17)
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!

Another KNEE PAIN! And FIX!

Posted on September 19, 2013 at 12:17 AM Comments comments (0)
Yes, this is rather shocking! There isn't a 3-4 week lapse between posts.
What a week! So many things to think about!
On my last blog I threatened to go to iodine info. 
I have not given up on that, this info happens to be very current!

I do lots of releases relative to knees. People don't like knee pain... go figure! This week it was my turn for that annoying knee ache. I have done releases before... just can't remember which knee it was on! I think it was the right, it was the left this time. Which brings me to another thought about releases. 
Many times we do releases and the problem gets better and stays that way. Many times we do releases and the problem gets better and then some of the symptoms start returning. When we have a symptom that returns, it is usually because we haven't actually gotten to the basis of the problem. Sometimes this is like layers of an onion, you peel away one, then find there is another. And eventually you do get to that last layer. And that is a mighty fine place to be! Headaches are gone, pain is gone, energy is high, or we see healing beginning..... Nice place to be!

Pain and inflammation are symptoms of something going on! You can take all the anti-inflammatories you want and will relieve the symptoms, but for sure that isn't addressing the reason for the symptoms. 

From studies I know knee pain can be related to kidney, gall bladder, adrenal or structural imbalances. I feel really bad for people who limp off to the Dr. and get a knee surgery, only to find it hasn't made much difference. I do however recognize surgery as being necessary at times. But the most bothersome of this is the attitude of "God just must want me to suffer..." Really? This isn't part of my life philosophy. I digress.....

So going up and down stairs was becoming challenging, feeling as though this knee would just give out. I was perplexed, I had done several sessions on myself and thought I SHOULD be fine... what is the matter with me?

So I finally took the time for me, used the Body Code and got to the basis of the knee pain. There was a negative energy and misalignment of the Patella, KNEE CAP! And then one more imbalance showed up. Hmm.... Seems it was related to a high school event when I got smacked hard with a door... right in the knee cap. Man, it hurt like crazy! But in high school you act cool and walk it off. It has had a few days to marinate! Got all that cleared up and it feels so good! 

Again I am very thankful for the gifts God has given so we can make it through this life a bit easier.

There is a very good chance I could help with YOUR knee pain, you won't know until you try....

Have a healthy week!
Fall is coming on here.... remember to take that Vit D supplement.

It's MY KNEE PAIN this time!

Posted on July 16, 2013 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (3)

So, thinking I am still very young, agile and in really good shape, I did a hike with teenaged girls on steroids! Okay... they weren't on steroids. It is the only excuse I can find as to why I wasn't up to speed. 
We took off to a beautiful lake in the mountains near McCall, Idaho. The girls sprinted up the mountain and I was on lookout for stragglers at the end.(yeah..right)
I made it up. It was beautiful and well worth the hike in. Then we had to go down. It was then I noticed that I was having some knee trouble. NOOOO!!!!! NOT HERE!!!!!! Like there is ever a good place to have knee trouble. 
I remembered Dr. Nelson talking about having knee trouble when he was skiing. I thought to protect my knee as best as I could, then look for some treatment when I got back.
By the time I got back to the cabin, I could barely handle the stairs. This was really getting out of control! So I managed to release a few trapped energies and WAA LAA! Knee pain GONE! Ya gotta love fast results! 
Again... knee pain can result from several sources, i.e, back misalignment, kidney misalignment or trapped energy among other things. I was blessed, I found it right off the bat. We usually can help most any pain when we use TEC or  BC, Body Code.
Have a great, pain free week! Remember... there is help out there for your complaints!
