SEEING THE NEW YEAR AT NEARLY 20/20!
I am serious.
This is wonderful place to begin a new year!
This week I drove myself to the eye Dr.
By the time I got there I could hardly see. I WAS NOT in a good mood. My head was killing me, my eyes were killing me. I just couldn't focus.
I suspected my contact lenses were giving me problems. I was right.
Earlier, I noticed the cross road signs at night were looking something like swastikas and I wondered when they started making signs like that?! But as I got closer, the sign wasn't the problem. Hmm.....
One day I drove into Boise and noticed that on top of the mountains I could see individual trees. That's weird. So I just stopped wearing the lenses much because they weren't comfortable.
But thinking this wasn't a good idea, I headed to the Dr.
When the Dr. came into the room, I said, "Hello, get these lenses out."
Whoa, not so fast! We had to test!
With one of the tests, he asks if I can read any of the three lines. Yep, can read the top line, and pretty much the second line and if I squint I can make out the last line.
After he did a few tests, the Dr. made the announcement,
"You just keep getting better and better. You have had a 50% improvement in your vision since I saw you. Wow."
I saw him last in November '19, 2.5 months ago.
At that time he said I could probably use a lesser prescription in the right eye, but thought all would be well at my -1.00 prescription.
Per the reading test, the top line is what you need to be able to read to drive without corrective lenses! And the third line is 20/20 vision!
I NO LONGER need corrective lenses to drive. WOW!
The last line is 20/20. SHOCKING! I CAN see 20/20 in 2020, if I squint!
My journey started with -1.75 with a light bifocal correction.
I am now -.5 and no bifocal correction.
I am not something special, if I can improve so can anyone else who decides they would want to.
Someone who says it can't be done should not be allowed to interrupt someone who is doing it.
So what have I done?
Removed any energy/toxicity blockages from eyes.
And it isn't hard or I wouldn't be doing it.
Here are the eye exercises:
By Jack West
Laying on back. Do not move head.
Follow as directed in series of 5 times for each exercise
1. Rotate the eyes clock wise 5X
Squeeze eyes tight till relaxed, count to 10
2. Rotate the eyes counter clockwise 5X
Squeeze eyes tight…count..also use some deep breaths.
3. Look straight across, FEEL the stretch. Left to right 5 X
4.Make Xs with eyes.
From upper left to right shoulder, feel the stretch.
Then upper right to left shoulder, feel the stretch.
Do these movements 10 x, making 5 large Xs.
Occasionally, start from the bottom and go to the top.
5. Then look up over head and down to toes, focus on the toes, 5 Xs.
Do this 2 times a day at the minimum.
I figure I was laying down before I went to sleep and before I got up so I could do these exercises. Worked for me! Do once more a day if possible.
Then I found another one I added since November:
The Thumb Focus Exercise
Hold your thumb out at arms length, shoulder high.
Focus on your thumbnail as you slowly bring the thumb toward your nose.
Hold for a second or two and then extend the arm again still focusing on the thumbnail. Do this 5 times.
Squeeze eyes and relax.
Do at least once a day, or twice if you feel inclined.
Supplements reported to help eyesight:
Calcium, citrate 400 mg
Omega 3 fish oil, 1000 U
Vit C 1000 mg, minimum
Vit E 400 u
Gelatin, 1 capsule/day
Glucosomine/Chondroitin, 1 capsule a day
Eye Brite formula, 2 droppers or 2 capsules at night, 1 month. This is a Dr. Christopher product.
Iodine, be sure you are getting adequate Iodine supplementation. This is the ONE thing I had changed in my diet over the last 4 months.
Foods which may improve eyesight:
Red and yellow peppers
Sweet Black Cherries
I do a smoothie most every day, mine is usually power greens with a little fruit, liquid minerals added, whey protein and sometimes yogurt.
This smoothie is purported to help with eyes also:
For one month do the following daily:
Green smoothie with spinach, and chard if you like
1/4 c blue berries
1/4 c sweet black cherries
1/4 c. black berries
And eat 8 whole pecans.
It is important to remove toxins from the body as well as addressing any other imbalances. Body Code is great for this!
Also, to help clear congestion in the eyes, this is a great treatment! I tell people they will be shocked at how bright their vision is after this treatment:
Castor Oil Treatment.
Use Hexane free, cold pressed and as organic as possible Castor oil. Palma Christie is a good brand. Use the filtered one, not the one with particles in it.
For 3 nights, put one drop of castor oil in each eye before retiring.
Wait one week and repeat.
This may need to be repeated, depends on the individual.
And lastly, an eye wash!
This is great for strengthening the eyes, clearing and healing.
This treatment is also used for cataracts treatment.
Measure out 2 eye cups full of water, distilled or purified.
Add 2 drops Dr. Christopher's Eye Brite tincture and let set for a few minutes to bleed off any alcohol.
Fill cup with solution. Tilt head forward and press eye cup over eye.
Raise head and blink 10 times.
Lower head for break.
Raise head again and blink 10 times.
Lower head and repeat one last time.
Discard water, rinse cup and repeat on other eye. You may increase dosage of Eye Brite drops as needed.
Do for one week and then we will recheck for a repeat.
There is nothing hard about this. It may seem like a lot, but you eat anyway, so might as well put in some healing foods.
You lie down, you can exercise those eyes a couple of times a day. It takes only a few minutes.
If you want more detailed help, please set up and appointment. We can discuss a personalized program and specific nutrients and also take care of any blockages that may prevent healing.
Seeing IS BELIEVING!
Here's to seeing 20/20 in 2020!
May your path be clear and clearly seen.
I am NOT a Dr. If you have other questions, see your Dr.
I am a regular person who used to have -1.75 vision and now has -.5 and hopes others can improve also.

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.
What can be some of the causes?
Misalignment of the pelvis
Misalignment of the vertebrae.
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?
This is absolutely necessary when pregnant for the developing child's
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.
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!
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!

Oh, come on! I know there are people who want to know... "IS THIS NORMAL?"
What is normal? Lots of things! Is there anything Abnormal? Several things.
"Disease begins in the colon," according to Dr. Christopher and many others. You haul the garbage out of your house quite regularly, and it is good to get the garbage out of your system regularly also. Sometimes in my mind I just picture an out-house. Any camper has seen one of these. You had to hold your nose to use it. Well, imagine being a walking out- house. Yeah....take the garbage out.
Dr. Christopher also stated, "There will never be world peace as long as there are a bunch of constipated men sitting around a table trying to discuss it." This is probably true. I think I have met this type on a few occasions.
So what is 'REGULAR'?
I remember one story told in class by a practitioner about a woman who displayed toxin overload and constipation symptoms. Upon being questioned. She was adament that she was regular!!! So the provider asked her again, "Do you have regular bowel movements?"
"Yes, she replied I 'go' once a month!" I would love to tell you this is made up. But unfortunately it is true. Some professionals would tell you that a bowel movement once a week is also normal. Please someone, show me somewhere in the animal kingdom, the animal that defecates once a week. I grew up on a dairy farm. I for sure never saw such a creature! So why would it be normal for a human to have a bowel movement every two, three or four days? Okay...it is a misunderstanding. This IS normal or average for constipated people, but it is NOT HEALTHY. A healthy person has two to three bowel movements a day. That would be a goal.
So what does 'normal' look like?
Usually a light brown, about as long as from your wrist to your elbow, about as round as when your forefinger and thumb are placed together, and soft. As you can tell, this is very individual. You can worry about that, after you are having the bowel movements.
NOTE: Any maroon colored stools, or black tarry stools MUST be evaluated by your Dr. This is could be an indication of blood in the stools, and it is serious.
What causes this constipation?
*WATER? Usually a lack of enough water. Are you drinking enough? A good rule of thumb is one half your body weight, pounds, converted to ounces. So if you weigh 150 lb, you should be drinking about 75 ounces of water daily. We will discuss the types of water later. Also, if the body isn't picking up the water, there will be a problem. We evaluate the usage of the water using the Body Code.
*MEDICATIONS? Also medications can slow the tract down. Pain killers are notorious for this. There are others also, so we look for medication toxicities.
*EMOTIONAL ISSUES? Emotional issues are paramount also! Holding onto emotional issues? Uh huh. That may cause a 'holding on' within the body also. We can address these things with TE sessions.
*FIBER? Lack of proper fiber also causes an issue. I know there is a big push right now against grains. I have a problem with that as whole grains are where you get so many useful B vitamins and also the fiber. You just need good old fashioned fiber in the diet from whole grains, fruits and vegetables, raw and even cooked.
*SMOOTHIES? And even some of those nutritional supplements, as great as they are, can cause a problem. To compensate for the lack of fiber in your smoothies, you need to add a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil to keep things moving along.
*EXERCISE? Lack of exercise is also a big factor. One of the easiest and best is just simply a walk. That's it! But exercise in any form will help.
*ENZYMES? Or lack there of? Supplements may be needed until the condition can be corrected. And I check to make sure your enzymes are up to par!
*HORMONES? A lack of thyroid hormones can very often cause constipation. But don't bank on getting an abnormal report back on this. You may need to run your own test with your body temperature, should be about 98.6 around 3 pm.
So what can be used to get you 'GOING?'
Dr. Christopher puts out the LOWER BOWEL TONIC. This is just what it states. It is a tonic to heal the issues of the lower bowel. This can be taken over a long period of time to heal the colon and encourage proper responses. Start out with 2 capsules a day, usually at night, then increase until desired results are achieved. After success, start backing down the dosages. You may need to take 2 capsules a day for a few months to heal this tract. If you are needing to take more than 4 capsules a day, consider putting some into your morning routine.
PSYLLIUM HUSK is a good one also. Just mix a tablespoon or so of this product in some juice the night before and Waa Laa! Success the next morning. Be sure you are drinking plenty of water with this. Many people take 2 capsules of this 2-3 times a day. This keeps things moving along well.
SMOOTH MOVE. One little treat on the market now is a tea. You drink this around 7 PM, and success will be yours in the AM. And the name of this wonderful little product is, get ready for it...."Smooth Move." Yeah, I laughed also. It is a very pleasant tea with wonderful, gentle effects.
Dr. Christopher also developed a recipe for a healthy little snack which will also help children, or their parents, assure relief from constipation.
DR. CHRISTOPHER'S BOWEL AID
1 pint ground or finely chopped dried fruits, ie apples, apricots, dates, figs,peaches, prune, and or raisins.
Add one ounce powdered slippery elm bark, one ounce powdered flax seed, one ounce powdered licorice root, and enough sorghum or blackstrap molasses to make moldable. Shape into small round balls and roll them in 1:1 slippery elm bark and powdered carob.
These are plenty sweet, so there won't be a problem getting them down. They are very good for children who might be a little 'slow,' or their parents.
An easy exercise program is the TTap program. It does wonderful things including encouraging regular bowel movements.
So there you have more info than you ever thought you would want about bowel movements! And there is more....but I think we have talked enough about it for now. Just one more thing, you're not really going to lose any weight until you clear the constipation condition. It is what it is.
Fruit ball, Anyone? ;-)
Be sure to see your Dr. for any complications.

'I HATE TO EXERCISE PROGRAM'
I applauded my own efforts today when I exercised! Second time this week!!! While doing my exercise I thought it sad more people don't know about this. Then I thought maybe I was at fault. Not good. So here is some info about my..."I hate to exercise" program.
I like to walk, but sometimes that just isn't enough or I just don't do it. So here is my other option.
IF, I DO exercise I have a criteria:
It MUST Work! I need to see results!
It MUST be easy! No fancy equipment or directions. And something I
don't have to travel for.
It MUST take as little time as possible!
Yes, it is a tough criteria. Oh well... I found something that fits it all!
We are about to embark on that tradition, no, the other one, The 'New Years' resolution. Most of us have the same goals as the last 2-3 years, I know about this.
So if you want a little early Christmas present, you might consider the T-Tapp exercise solution.
Here is some of what happens when you use it:
It is EASY
It SHOWS RESULTS
It WORKS IN 3 SESSIONS A WEEK! (best part)
It MOVES LYMPH…
LOVE THIS PROGRAM!
Moving lymph is really important. Lymph does NOT have a circulatory system. It moves from area to area via muscle action, skin brushing or use of a mini tramp.
When lymph doesn't move, you become acidic, arthritic and basically ill. Your lymph carries lots of toxins out and lots of anti bodies in. And that would be a whole other blog which I will get to….
AND let me remind you! If your lymphatic system is out whack, you will be also and it won't matter HOW much exercise you do! This affects the immune system. Logic tells me it is a great idea to remove any negative energy blockages or toxins which might be affecting this system, or others. Diet and detoxes along with the Body Code usually get people going in the right direction.
Back to THE exercise:
How did I get into this exercise program?
I visited my daughter who was into this exercise program and couldn't stop raving over it. Yeah.. yeah… yeah….I really didn't think there were programs out there I hadn't heard about. And most touted miraculous results if you beat yourself up long enough.
Hey, I am not into wearing myself out.. I need to last!
My daughter threw on a t-shirt and some capris and I noticed there was less of her to notice… hmmm…. was this program doing THAT for her?
I exercised with her, not bad… I didn't feel like I needed cardiac resuscitation when finished.
Okay….. so far so good….
And it lasted what…. 15 MINUTES?
Hmm…. this is GOOD….
Then I listened to the lecture… it made perfect sense! This gal is well educated and is her own personal experiment. I have great respect for those types of people. And she spoke of the importance of lymph movement and how to move it with exercise! LYMPH?? I had studied that, its role and importance!
Okay…. I am listening now!
Hello, Teresa Tapp and the T-Tapp method of exercise.
On the the lecture DVD you learn all you need to know about the whys and hows of this program.
So let's see:
I get results after a few days…. check
I don't need anything else to exercise with…. check (do use a DVD player)
It moves lymph…check (everyone NEEDS that!)
Most anyone can do it… it is just that simple.
Helps balance hormones.
It helps with gestational diabetes.
This exercise routine lasts 15-18 minutes…. ONLY 3 times a week…. love it! And… it is energizing!!!!
Or you can do the longer work out. Why you would want to I don't know…
So there you have my reasons for choosing this program.
I suggest if you hate exercise programs, you check this one out.
If you can tolerate a light exercise 15-18 minutes, 3 times a week, you will be impressed by the results… and you will helping your body detox simply by moving the lymph! Oh, yeah… drink lots water and drink distilled if you want to detox even more.
I must put a disclaimer here: If you are harboring negative energy, lots of toxicities and it is blocking glands or organs, you do need to get those released to gain the absolute best,above average out come for your exercise program. You already know what you should or shouldn't be eating! ;-)
Here's hoping you have a wonderful, energetic week! If not lets get some of those negative energy blockages and other stuff out of the way and be ready for the next week!
P.S. Don't forget to check out Berei!!! She is 75 years old, off many medications and looking good... my icon!
GO TO PRODUCTS PAGE and click on the T-Tapp info. You should end up on the T-Tapp home page. Check out the testimonials, BEREI'S!, at the bottom of the page. If you decide to order, just be sure to get the Fit and Fabulous WITH the lecture. You MUST listen to the lecture to find out why and how it works.

Yes, it has been a LONG time between blogs. I completed a move to a new location, office is mostly set up and I can find my clothes and my bedroom! Great Progress!!!! So now... hopefully I am getting back on track.
Now... onto some really exciting info!
MY EYES!!!!Three (3!!!!) LESSENED prescriptions later!
Because of an eye issue a while back, I blogged about it, I have been conscious about good eye health protocol. Because I am also usually in a hurry and busy, I don't have a lot of patience with looongg programs. What ever I do has to be doable, quick and not too difficult. AND... IT MUST WORK!
I WAS wearing corrective contact lenses, WITH a bifocal enhancement. So a few months ago I went to the eye Dr. because I was getting headaches. I rarely have a headache and it usually is eye related if I do.
He lessened the prescription. Ahhh.... lots better!
I am back 2 weeks later, more headaches. Relief, prescription lessened.
Then a week or so ago, I had trouble focusing, somewhat blurry vision with a horrible headache.
I didn't have time to go in, so I just dealt with a kinda double vision deal when I wore my lenses, or didn't wear the lenses, unless driving. All the letters had a shadow with them. Hmm... I made an appointment and went today. Everything was going along okay.... until the aid gave me a new set of contacts to put in before the Dr. came in. WOWZER! Welcome to the world of headaches!
By the time the Dr. came in, I just wanted the lenses out. Tried out another set of lighter lenses, still had some double vision, tried out another set. Not better yet. And then the magic card.
"Can you read anything on this card?" he asks.
"Yeah, what do you want me to read?" I reply
So I read something. The Dr. grabs the card and announces that I don't need the bifocals! So I got lenses WITHOUT bifocal correction, and a lighter prescription and WHAAA! LAAA! I can see again.... AND NO HEADACHES!
So let's see, I started out at -1.75 with light bifocal correction.
Went to -1.50 with light bifocal correction.
Went to a lighter one yet... and today I end up with -1.00 and NO bifocal correction. After that many lenses in my eyes, I have some very tired eyes. But I am feeling pretty optimistic about this eye stuff!
So what started this revolution? Wish I could tell you what I did! (tease! Okay...not funny. Sorry ;-) ....)
Soooo.... I started out with energy work on my eyes. Interestingly, I found grief as a trapped emotion. Makes sense, when you grieve you might cry. I have had plenty of opportunity for that. And there were some other things also.
But there is something more to this....Recently, I came across a site by Jack West, a fellow I thought was only into archeology.. I hadn't realized he was very much into holistic health. I listened to his lecture. He has since passed, but was a great grandfather and had never worn or needed glasses. After my eye issues, I found this intriguing. And he then explained his program. He had been promised by a Dr. he would never need glasses if he did several simple eye exercises every day. Okay, I'll buy... how simple? It would have to be simple if I were to get involved. It was. I combined this with Dr. Christopher's Eye Bright, used as a wash and as a tincture.
I was already taking some calcium, Vit D, Vit A, (as beta carotene),EFAs and minerals, so I didn't feel to change anything nutritionally.
So here you go! EYE EXERCISES by Jack West.
Lying down, do this at least two times a day. I know, I know... but the two times I would be lying down would be before I go to sleep and before I get out of bed. Okay... this is very doable! I could do it.
Protocol of EXERCISE:
Lying on back,
1. rotate the eyes in a big clockwise circle 5 times. Then squeeze eyes tight. Slow methodical movements, don't rush.
2. Now, roll the eyes counter clockwise 5 times and squeeze.
3. Look side to side, way over each way 5 times, side to side and back is 1. Squeeze eyes tight.
4. Make 5 LARGE X's with eyes, looking to upper left corner then down to opposite right shoulder, upper right, then down to opposite left shoulder, 5Xs. Squeeze.
5. Look way up high, over your head, then down to your toes. You probably won't see your toes and that is okay. Do this up and down 5 times. Squeeze.
That completes the eye exercises. It is suggested you do this 2-3 times a day or when your eyes are tired. I have at times just laid my head back and done them.
As I stated, I take 2 droppers full of Eye Bright once a day.
I do an eyebright wash with an eye cup and a few drops of eye bright in water before I go to bed. And I take my regular supplements. I made sure there weren't any other blockages.
Will it work for you? We won't know until you try. It doesn't hurt, is isn't expensive,(well discounting prescription changes) and it isn't hard.
And yes, I would suggest energy work on the eyes, should you feel so inclined. Many things can be improved when we remove the blockages preventing healing. I have released toxicities and various energies from the eyes. It is really a good idea to get an evaluation.
Here's looking at you! And thankfully seeing only ONE of you!!! Glad that is over. Crazy times!
Have a great week. Don't be afraid to exercise your eyes. God helps those who help themselves. Please consider helping yourself get to a better place.

Well, we just got our latest bundle of joy!
Little Isabel came a couple of weeks early, but is happy and healthy.
We had a little problem with her bilirubin count, maybe because she was young… then maybe not.
So all this makes me think we need to address some issues about having a baby! I didn't think to tell the mom-to-be what she could do about that biliRubin count BEFORE she had the baby. Her first baby wasn't affected…. Hmm… 'cobbler's kids have no shoes' type syndrome.
Dr. Christopher preached 'good health' of the parents was a prerequisite for a healthy child. I grew up on a dairy farm. My dad always took care to feed his livestock well so they would produce good quality milk and calves. People are no different in that respect. A diet of fast food and prepackaged food is not going reap the benefits of a healthy next generation.
So proper nutrition is vital.
We have mother's who get violently ill when pregnant. There are tons of good remedies out there. One of my favs is the addition of
B6 into the diet.
For many, this is a magic bullet to take care of the morning sickness.
And NOW we have TEC and BC, to release negative energies which could be causing the morning sickness. This has worked in numerous cases.
Mom's-to-be need a very good supplement program.
Fish oil is vital if you want a brilliant child.
Calcium/magnesium is vital if you want to avoid the leg cramps and provide the building blocks for good jaw and bone structure in the developing child. My old family dentist told me there was an 'old wives tale' that goes, "A tooth for every baby." It is true, to some extent, the developing body of the child requires minerals and the mother's body will just supply it for the child risking its own supply. Hence we can have a very weak mother when the child is born.
A good multi vitamin is also necessary, Standard Process has a good one, and you need more than 2 a day.
Minerals should be considered if your multi isn't supplying them.
One great way to get some minerals and vitamins into the diet and also help the whole uterine area is to drink
RED RASPBERRY LEAF TEA, one cup a day. It is an excellent tonic for the mom.
One good, easy, and tasty way to increase the nutrition would be a fruit/ vegi smoothie.
And for sure I would consider adding the TANGY TANGERINE mineral and vitamin supplement into this smoothie. This is one tasty way to get the vitamins and minerals you need. Check the products section for this. The EFA's, essential fatty acids, are excellent also!
We also were told, years ago, that after the meal, the mother should lie down on her right side for 1/2 hour. Or at least after lunch. Oh… I know… we just couldn't take time out for that! But maybe we should start…..
Exercise is great!
You just can't beat the old fashioned "Walk." I worked with a little gal from Australia. She popped out 8-9lb babies with out a problem. She attributed it to walking. They had only one car at the time so she just walked if she needed something. My Dad always told me to get out and walk and swing my arms. And I have become a big proponent of walking.
Sometimes there is a problem with constipation. Uggghh….
There are several things you might try.
Stewed prunes first thing in the am. They are loaded with nutrients and will do a nice job… usually. Just 5-10… and drink the water you heated them in.
Try some fresh apples before bed.
Some times a little olive oil, 2Tb. before bed, also helps. I didn't say it would be delicious! Just mix with a little OJ and shoot it to the back of the throat.
But better yet than olive oil would be coconut oil! You can just eat it off the spoon and it tastes pretty darn good. It sometimes helps. Be sure you are drinking plenty of water! Oh, I didn't put that in here!
Check with your health care provider for more suggestions.
HYDRATION!!! Sometimes that swelling is your tissues crying for more water. They need to be flushed. And those Braxton-Hicks contractions are often caused by not enough water. DRINK! WATER!
Oh… WOW! Here is an unusual remedy.
Try drinking buttermilk before bed. Don't wash it down with anything. It does a nice job. This was discovered by accident and has worked very well for many moms. It does help one sleep also… that is how we discovered it works well for indigestion!
And what about that Bilirubin count.
This is where the liver is not processing the extra cells as quickly as needed. The mother's liver has been doing the work for both the mother and child before birth. Well, if the mother's liver is sluggish, there is going to be more for the infants' liver to do. During the last trimester, you can drink some lemon juice in water to rejuvinate that liver. I had several jaundiced babies, but none after I did the lemon juice/water drink.
1/2 lemon squeezed into 1 qt of water to be drank each day during the last trimester. It is delicious! And is a good little tonic for the liver.
Then we get to the last month or 6 weeks of pregnancy. And delivery now becomes real…. !
Birth Prep formula by Dr. Christopher is a MUST!
Just follow the directions on the bottle, these are an herbal capsule. I took this with my last 3 pregnancies, I had 3 without. Yes… this works! I would NEVER dream of doing a delivery without it. Does it solve all the problems? No.
I know one young mother who took it and had a C section, baby was breech. Then she had another pregnancy and C section, again taking the formula. Well, the last pregnancy she knew would be a C section so she just skipped the Birth Prep. She learned first hand that this formula will cut your recovery time in HALF! It is a little late to do anything about it after delivery, but you can take it and it will probably help get your hormones back a more normal state, which is what we do after delivery anyway, just 2 capsules a day for the first week post labor.
What does this Birth Prep formula do?
The first thing it does is encourage elasticity in the tissues. This is good if you want to deliver naturally.
It also seems to expedite a labor.
Then it checks the hormones, they will balance quicker.
And it seems to help with un-necessary bleeding after delivery.
And for sure… it cuts the recovery time IN HALF!
Is it safe medically?
Well, my girlfriend took it to her Dr. for review. The only thing he could promise her was she would not have pink elephants in her living room. He considered it benign. This is also the girlfriend who would hemorrhage after delivery… except the last delivery after she used the formula the uterus seemed to just progress normally with minimal bleeding.
So the little bundle of joy enters the world and life is upside down for a few weeks while everyone gets on a schedule.
The new mother needs rest, some good food and good company. But in moderation.
If there has been an episiotomy,
a little oil from a Vit. E capsule applied only ONCE a day to the site can really help the healing. Also a spray of colloidal silver is very helpful.
Mom should not be carrying anything heavier than the baby for 2 weeks.
This does not include the baby in one of those half ton carriers either!
For one week after delivery, 2 capsules of Birth Prep formula each day will help the healing, the hormones and the emotions to start balancing.
Milk supply is directly affected by how much fluid the mother drinks and how dedicated she is to nursing. The mom should be drinking, water, every time she goes to nurse and in between times. Nursed babies will eat every 2-3 hours, just get used to having your shirt undone for 3 months. After 3 months the payoff begins! There are a few things that will hinder success, like sore nipples. Be sure to get some of
Dr. Christopher's Complete tissue formula to use on those nipples and also give them plenty of dry air time. This formula will not affect the infant.
And what if you eat something offensive to the baby… ours does not do chocolate! We use yogurt to neutralize the milk. Mom just has some yogurt everyday and we get along pretty well… and stay off the chocolate. Other offenders might be cruciferous vegi's like broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower. Go easy on these while you figure out if you can indulge. After about 3 months, you can be pretty open with what you eat. I would always suggest no caffeine while nursing.
We were offered the Hep B vaccine before leaving the hospital. It was refused. The reasoning for the refusal goes like this:
Hepatitis B is resultant from drug use and sexual activity. I find it hard to believe a baby going home in America would be subject to either. But I guess it happens. But since we weren't in that profile, the vaccine was refused.
From my own observation, I have noticed a continuing pattern. The nursery is quiet in the hospital. Upon leaving the hospital the vaccine is administered. It is NOT QUIET AT HOME!
I have seen some unhappy babies and I have seen some happy babies. One thing in common with most all the unhappy babies is, they received the Hep B vaccine.
I have never seen full term infant with acid reflux who has not also had the Hep B vaccine. This is an 'old man's' disease. And it is treated with antacids. Where/when did this ever become normal?
Every infant I have seen with a breathing problem, has also had a Hep B vaccine. I have seen some breathing problems without the vaccine, but every infant with breathing problems has had the vaccine.
Every infant I have seen with colic, today, has had the Hep B vaccine.
This is as good a reason as any for not vaccinating an infant while in the nursery, that is why it is nice and quiet there.
Every symptom I have listed here, and more, is listed on the product information insert sheet with the vaccine. You can look this up on line, don't take my word for it! I did look it up and made more correlations.
And sometimes a really unhappy baby will benefit with trip to a chiropractor. I had one grand-daughter who was sooooo miserable and also so was anyone who was around for any length of time. My Chiropractor checked her out and found out that her C1 Atlas in the neck was out. Hey…. it isn't easy getting born! He lined her up and WAA.. LAA!!! HAPPY BABY! And happy parents and grand parents and aunts and……
Those old country docs who held the infant up by their heels and smacked their bottom was actually doing everyone a favor. This suspension also will align the vertebrae in the neck and back! (I just nix the smacking part!)
Since now I work in releasing negative energies, I think I will make a statement or two about pregnant women.
Years ago, the condition was considered delicate. A pregnant woman was not even supposed to look upon the face of death as it would mark her child. I will concede there may have been some extreme practices concerning the pregnant woman.
Today, these women run marathons, work full time and possibly hustle another child around. Okay… if that is what you choose.
But let me tell you some of what I see.
When I first started work with TEC, I worked with a gentleman who had a very active case of asthma. He suffered for years. I treated him for a negative energy he had acquired in the 3rd trimester of pregnancy, some energy his mother had been afflicted with and he had absorbed. When we cleared this energy it also lessened the symptoms of the asthma. I don't know that he has used an inhaler since. Is every case of asthma associated with an energy acquired in the 3rd trimester? Absolutely not. This is just how this individual was affected.
Since then, I have released from many individuals, trapped energies acquired during the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Some of these affect the pancreas, or lungs as well as other areas.
I have developed a real concern for the health of the next generation relative to what I am seeing. If we want a healthy next generation, we better start taking care of the current one. I am now campaigning to take better care of the mothers-to-be. Pregnancy isn't a time to try to be a super woman. You are super enough if you are preparing a little body to enter this world to make it a better place. Stress should be kept at a minimum. Rest and nutrition are primo.
There was another old fashioned way of dealing with a pregnant woman, they called it "days of confinement." This one might be a keeper…. they just put the pregnant woman off to herself, away from the public. The mother-to-be, more often than not, can't stand herself, or anyone else and well…. Considering how hormonal a pregnant woman can be, this might not be too bad of an idea to resurrect, just thinking out loud here….
;-) (I am not all that serious here!)
So here is to all those mother's-to-be!
You make the world go around!
Now go lie down….
Have a happy baby!
