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

Summer Bites? Ouch! The LIZ PROTOCOL

Posted on July 2, 2020 at 12:25 AM Comments comments ()
It has been an interesting spring and now we embark on Summer. 
But with the rain and coolness, I am wondering if someone forgot to tell Mother Nature where we are supposed to be with all this. 

So today I'm singing the praises of Liz. Liz is my neighbor and we visit from time-time. 

I managed to use a few good days we had and get outside and work in the yard. I believe in dirt therapy. Works wonders for the soul and the body. 

While out working around I managed to rile up some wasps and took quite a beating from them. I had about 5 stings. I got the stings under control using a few energy releases and Dr. Christopher's Stings and Bites ointment. Love that stuff.

After a week or so of itching, I was healing well. Then I got another sting. I haven't had stings like this in years. 
This time my arm became quite inflamed. It was sore and starting to itch. 
I mentioned this to Liz. And boy did I get a good story from this!

Liz states her aunt and uncle ran a clinic in California. People who had small pox, chicken pox and and any pox condition in general would come to this clinic. And they were helped and healed. The aunt had a formula she was impressed to use. It works on measles, what ever the skin issue. This also includes bites and stings. This stuff stops itching, consequently there are no secondary infections because you don't introduce any other pathogens to the skin from scratching. And it will also prevent scaring, according to Liz. 

The recommendation is to clean the skin area with a mild soap and water, then pat dry. NO RUBBING. You do not want to break or irritate the skin. 
Then apply the mixture.

The LIZ PROTOCOL
Liz's aunt felt to use a combination of baking soda and vaseline.
In a small glass or dish mix equal parts of baking soda and vaseline. I used about 1 tsp of each.  Liz says the vaseline can get hot, so you might use more baking soda. This is per individual preference. Then with the back of a spoon, so as NOT TO DISTURB the skin, you apply the mixture. 

So to my sting, which was itching like crazy, I applied the mixture. I didn't take time cleanse the area as I just wanted immediate relief,
AND I GOT IT! I couldn't believe how great this stuff works. 

I found out a friend had been suffering with some weird bites. I called and told her she might try this. She calls back about 30 minutes later and tells me I am a miracle worker! Well, thanks, but it really isn't me. 

I had the kids over and one got a sting under the arm. Nasty! Been there and done that. So I mixed up Liz Protocol, applied it and the child went merrily on her way. We applied once more before she left. And that was that. 

Hopefully, there will never be a time when we need to worry about a pox situation. If there ever is, you have another tool in your box to deal with it.   
I might also suggest if there are some allergies to bugs and bites, that you try some Body Code sessions to get rid of those. 

Dr. Christopher's Stings and Bites ointment is a good one also to keep around as the plantain will draw out some of the toxins with stings.

Stay safe!
And enjoy the summer! 
Blessings

Corona Virus threat, my plan...

Posted on March 24, 2020 at 3:02 PM Comments comments ()
Corona Virus? 
I have never experienced anything like the upheaval we have experienced with this virus.
I am NOT a medical Dr. I offer no allopathic solutions. 
I will tell you what I do to ward off any unnecessary problems and what I do when I am attacked. 

About Virus'
#1. They mutate. That's how they stay in business.
#2. You won't get the exact same virus as your neighbor, they mutate. 
#3. Antibiotics do NOT work on virus.

The best way to handle this virus is to enhance your immune system so it fights off this or any other invaders
Immune system should be functioning at 100%. Body Code work will evaluate this for you. If you have something else as effective, by all means I would use it. 
Boost the Immune system.
I have been taking: 
Vit D 4000 U/ day is the minimum. You don't overdose unless you go over 10,000 u/ day.
Vit C to enhance the immune system. 1000 mg/ day is a good addition, more if you are fighting something. Vit C is a natural anti-inflammatory and rapid cell rebuilder as well as a detoxer. 
Garlic oil capsule 1/day unless fighting something. This is a great immune system enhancer. And it also has some anti-viral elements. 
That follows up on the minerals and vitamins I take. 

 ATTACK PLAN!!!
What I plan on if I get attacked?
I plan on lots of fluids.
One addition would be:
Canada Dry Tonic Water with Quinine
Quinine happens to be what Chloroquine is derived from. 
Selenium, 200 mcg/ day. It is GREAT for the immune system.
Zinc is also very good. Might consider zinc lozenges. Virus have a hard time reproducing when zinc is used. 
Vit C 3-6000 mg /day.
Vit D 10,000 u/  day for about 1 week.
Garlic to 4-6 capsules a day. Some people like the fresh best, and it is best. But for me, I get stomach issues with the fresh. A capsule works well for me.
Brigham's Tea tincture / 3-4 Droppers a day. Or I could use the tea, a couple of times a day.
Colloidal silver 30ppm, that will be 1.5 tsp twice a day. Possibly more if indicated.
And there is always Oil of Oregano. This is great for most virals. I can roll this oil onto the bottom of the feet.
And then the old stand by.... 
ONIONS! Yep! You can chop some up and put on the bottom of the feet. These are held in place by socks. This is just quicker than the onion poultice applied to the chest. But if indicated, and I had a horrible cough, I wouldn't hesitate prepping a poultice and using that a couple of nights as needed. 

There is quite a bit here. 
If it is a bit overwhelming, I am sorry. But I am here to help if you want to get more a more personal about any of it. 

Of course we could energetically challenge any virus or bacteria using the Body Code.
We could also check for any energies which are imbalanced and contributing to illness.

Just know, there are many options to choose from and the choice is yours.
I just shared some of what I do.  
And by all means, check with your health care professional if you have other questions. 

Keep those hands washed and have a healthy week!
Blessings,
Hkelly 






 





















All about seeing 20/20!

Posted on January 15, 2020 at 2:33 PM Comments comments ()
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! 

THE REVEL:
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?
Eye exercises.
Nutritional supplements. 
Removed any energy/toxicity blockages from eyes. 
That's it. 
And it isn't hard or I wouldn't be doing it. 

Here are the eye exercises:
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
Squeeze….
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.
Squeeze tight…..
5. Then look up over head and down to toes, focus on the toes, 5 Xs. 
Squeeze eyes…..
Done!
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. 

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS
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
Mineral supplement
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:
Spinach
Chard
Kale
Carrots
Broccoli
Egg yolks
Red and yellow peppers
Sweetcorn
Avocados
Raspberries 
Sweet Black Cherries
Blackberries
Blueberries
Pecans/nuts
Spices such as cayenne pepper and paprika
Fish oil

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:
SMOOTHIE!
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.

EYE WASH
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.

Blessings....
HK

disclaimer:
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. 














 







The delicacy of Pregnancy

Posted on August 15, 2017 at 7:26 PM Comments comments ()
Just as a reminder, these are MY opinions formed from MY experiences, but I find these very telling.

This is going to be a different post relative to health. I just connected a few dots after a conversation with a family member and clients.

So this week I have dealt with a few cases trapped emotions which were trapped by the individual during their early development, even in utero.

I have seen a negative emotion affecting bone marrow which was causing extreme tiredness. I have seen a negative emotion affecting an asthma situation, which when cleared the asthma was no longer a problem, among a few few other things . 

These energies were trapped by these individuals while IN utero, usually 3rd trimester.

One hundred years ago, women were considered in a 'delicate condition' when they were pregnant. There was extra care given to these women. Men always stood for a pregnant woman and allowed her to sit. No undo stress was placed on a woman. A woman was not even to 'look upon the face of death', it would be detrimental to the child. This time was called the 'days of confinement.'  Not a bad idea when you think about it. A pregnant woman is hard to be around at times. Having done this several times myself, there were times I just didn't like anyone….including my self. So isolating the pregnant woman from society wasn't a half bad idea at times. She was protected from some of the drama and illnesses of the day. The  woman was bringing a new life into this world and that pretty much was considered a miracle and pretty much respected. 

Did they go to an extreme with the treatment of the expectant mother?

After what I am seeing now, I would say NO!

The situations I described are varied in their history. I will give you the most recents:
The one with overall body pain, was conceived in a hostile marriage. The father was an unpredictable alcoholic, life was very unstable. And later that marriage ended.

The asthma client came from a pretty good marriage. Which leads me to think this trapped energy resulted from a negative experience the mother had.

Another client had an asthma condition, this was the result of a trapped energy inherited from the mother. Somewhere in this mother's past, someone had trapped this emotion and passed it on. Once cleared, so did the asthma.

Pregnant women are more emotional to begin with. The we add more stress and guess who might be the beneficiary of that stress?
The child. 
It seems I am seeing it in many cases.

This is NOT saying everyone who has issues had a negative developing environment. My point would be to try to eliminate these negative factors for the pregnant woman in hopes the offspring will be healthier and happier.

God has been very good to us, I feel it is time to be good to ourselves and our future generations. I am very thankful we have a method to improve our well being. 

Have a great week! Go kiss a baby and love again. 
Blessings....

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

Posted on January 6, 2017 at 2:41 PM Comments comments ()
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...

Seeing IS believing!

Posted on December 7, 2016 at 3:11 PM Comments comments ()
Hello!
I recently worked with a client who is considering some eye enhancement surgery. I suggested she start working on her eyes.
I removed the energy blockages involving her eyes, made suggestions about supplements and sent her the eye exercises.
Surprise!
Her next visit to the eye Dr., they were both a little surprised when he announced her stigmatism was gone! This is a 40 year old woman with 2 children. 
Isn't it wonderful that there are options for improving our lives?!

THE STEPS TO IMPROVING THE EYES/VISIION:

1. We do an EYE EVALUATION checking for blockages and removing what we find.

2. Then SUPPLEMENT:
Herbal eyebright formula, 2 droppers a day.
Beta Carotene
Calcium/magnesium
Omega's 3 and 6 (flax seed oil)
And now I am suggesting adding some gelatin to the diet. Gelatin is the building block of the collagen of the eyes, this is the vitreous matter in the eyeball. p.s. It is also good for the skin! But that is the next blog!

3. The EYE EXERCISES are available in another blog post, 
I am not believing my EYES! BIG IMPROVEMENT!!

You can start today to get your eyes to a healthier place! And yes, I am still bifocal free. 

Right now, for December, I am offering $10 off the normal price of a $60 session for an adult. You can purchase as many of these as you would like and we will schedule you appointments as close or as far out as you need. 

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas!
Blessings...

The SCOOP ON POOP!

Posted on June 14, 2016 at 1:10 AM Comments comments ()
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? ;-)

Blessings....

Be sure to see your Dr. for any complications.




Spring or Allergy season? You can choose!

Posted on April 14, 2015 at 1:00 PM Comments comments ()
Welcome to Spring! Or allergy season?

I used to have what I would call 'MAY FEVER.'
Came during the month of May, and ended when May left. Sometimes traveling would flare it up again. Arrrgggghhh.....  I found several very good treatments for this allergy. One of the best was good ol' Vitamin C. About 3000 mg a day would help with the allergy.
Some of the other chemical treatments were just that... and left me feeling groggy, or with stomach upset. I just never knew. But hey... it was only May...for a while...

So what is an allergy? Well, usually it is an auto immune response to an element the body perceives as being a threat. Some people will say, "I played for hours outside as a child and then as an adult I get THIS!!!"

Others have allergies as very young children. Some have allergies to milk,  wheat, or grains, this is a big deal. You need to become the worlds best package reader! Even soy sauce has wheat in it!!!

Do we know why we have allergies? Not necessarily. I have a few pet theories of my own. I do know many, MANY times we have adrenal issues. When we work with the adrenals, some allergies go away. Once in a while, it is a thyroid issue. Just depends on who and what. Everyone is individual.

Recently I had a client approach me at a social function. He was all smiles as he said, "Hey... It worked! I can eat chocolate! But I don't like it that much." Huh? You don't like it? Oh, well.... 

During the course his office evaluations, he admitted to an allergy to chocolate. This allergy would send him to a migraine attack which might last a couple of days. I asked if he wanted to get over it? He said yeah, but he had just learned to eat his way all around a chocolate chip if it were in a cookie. We went ahead and did the releases and he went merrily on his way. So when he finally decided to see if the treatment worked, he ventured out hoping it wouldn't be 2 days of torture. Hence...the first chance he got, he had to tell me. I was excited to hear about this. So was he....but he did discover he wasn't all that fond of chocolate. Hmmm..... Well, he won't gain weight. 

Dust allergies, weed allergies, pet allergies, flower allergies, food allergies, etc, we can do a lot for these. Do they all clear as easily? Not always. Sometimes it takes more than one treatment. We have to look for all the triggers, organ involvement, emotional involvement, etc. We don't know until we try.   

And sometimes, it isn't an allergy, it is an intolerance. The body response is similar, the cause might be different and on a different level. We check for those also. 

If you're not happily tip-toeing through the tulips enjoying spring, or foods, or pets, you can make a different choice! 

Have a wonderful week!

I am not believing my EYES! BIG IMPROVEMENT!!

Posted on February 21, 2015 at 12:37 PM Comments comments ()
Hello, again!!!
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. 
ALL DONE!
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. 
That's it. 
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.
Blessings...

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! 
HK
