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 have known 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 some stuff which is good,  A-type proanthocyanidins, which prevents Bacteria from sticking to the tract. 

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


What else is being affected?

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

And the liver has a direct affect on sleep!

Okay... we are really getting somewhere now!

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

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

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

GREAT!!! This then may improve sleep.


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

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


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

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


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


Have a great week with lots of good sleep!

Blessings,

Hk

Omega 3 Knees!

Posted on June 22, 2019 at 3:34 PM Comments comments (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 (15)
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....

The delicacy of Pregnancy

Posted on August 15, 2017 at 7:26 PM Comments comments (4)
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....

A Supplement for aches and pains? Maybe....

Posted on July 31, 2014 at 1:58 AM Comments comments (2)
Hello! 

I hope everyone is enjoying summer! I love it! Weeds and all!
So it has been one of those weeks with different people having similar issues. 
The one that stands out this week is nutritional.
A client of mine has been plagued with muscle/bone ache, some cramps and general malaise.  I checked her for misalignments, very few found.This client decided she would use some of the OsteoFX from the Longevity, a product I suggest on this site. 

For sometime I have been suggesting to women they monitor their calcium levels. This means they make a concentrated effort to make sure they are getting enough calcium in their diet. What is enough? Between 400mg-800mg a day, but we need to test for accurate dosage levels.

I have seen enough older men using walkers that calcium levels should be monitored for this group also. Low calcium can weaken bones, one of several factors.  I know conventional means don't offer this type of service usually, but it is a good idea to try to get a blood calcium level for yourself.
 
I also have known people who were allergic or intolerant to calcium and other minerals. This presents a problem of the body using what is there, thankfully we can address this and get to a better place with it.

In the first few days of a menstral cycle, a woman can lose up to 40% of her blood calcium. This can initiate cramps, among other things. 
So my recommendation has been, "Take extra Calcium, Calcium citrate with magnesium, the week before your period." Well, this has worked...when it is remembered. But we can do even better.....OsteoFX also contains trace minerals along with the calcium. Magnesium is used along with Calcium, there needs to be a balance.

The parathyroid gland is one of the glands responsible for calcium uptake. It is a very good idea for women AND men to have this evaluated. We can release any negative energies preventing this gland from performing up to it's proper levels.

Later in the day, I got a phone call from one very excited young woman! The ache in the hips was gone! It was gone within 20 minutes of taking the OsteoFX product and has not returned. I am very happy for her. We tested for dosages and she is well on her way to a happier life, healthier pain free life.

I really have a great respect for Dr. Wallach and his products because they work. I love his Essential Fatty acids, it is a great blend.

If you have chronic ache, it would be a good idea to get an evaluation to see if this product can help you. Not every ache is associated with calcium or mineral deficiency, but many are. 

Remember the 'old wives tale' of a "Tooth for every baby?" The mother's body will take minerals from the mother to produce a healthy child. Many times these minerals will come from the teeth, hence the tooth loss of mother. We have wonderful supplements today to prevent the degeneration of the mother's body. 

And for sure... let's not forget the roll calcium and magnesium play in heart health! It would be a very good idea to make sure your heart is happy with the supplements you take. 

Please take time to introduce yourself to good supplements.  We can always and should always do an evaluation to see what you may need, check for intolerances/allergies as well as checking the well being of your glands, organs and systems.

Have a great, pain free week!
