Overcoming the immune system decimators

Support

The immune system is designed to stay functional, but modern society provides too many ways to sabotage it. In the post “Immune system decimators”, the decimators are listed, and some of them are discussed in later posts:

Environmental hazards that decimate the immune system

More about immune system decimators

Immune system decimators, exploration continued

If you want to know what to do to overcome the destructive work that can be done to your immune system, read on…

Here are ten must-dos to keep your immune system functioning properly:

  • Food first:
    Less sugar, more salads. Less white flour, more lentils. Less margarine, more water and soup. Less processed meats and cheeses, more seeds. Less soft drinks, more whole grains.
  • Environmental hazards:
    Switch to natural cleansers and remove cleaning products that contain ingredients listed in the environmental hazards post. Limit dry cleaning. Keep smartphones and smart devices farther from your body. Avoid cigarette smoke and cut back if you smoke. Use natural beauty products. Avoid sunscreen products that are not safe.
  • Sleep:
    Each person needs to understand his or her sleep needs and be mindful to fulfill them. (There are other blog posts about sleep.)
  • Trauma:
    Working through past traumas is very important. When the current time is traumatic, steps to handle the trauma are very important.
  • Injury from drugs:
    Carefully check labels of prescription and nonprescription drugs to be aware of side effects and possible contraindications. Addictions are difficult to handle alone and require resolve and support from others: for addictions to legal or illegal drugs, aim to get help.
  • Loud sounds:
    Loud sounds are detrimental to the immune system, especially for children. Keep this fact in mind as you live your life.
  • Alcoholic beverages:
    Drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation and at a slow pace has little effect on health, unless there are any of these circumstances: tendency towards addiction in the family, when autoimmune conditions are suspected or confirmed, when overconsumption of sweets or insulin resistance are occurring, when alcoholic beverages are forced on a person who doesn’t want them. Alcoholism, like addiction to drugs, is difficult to handle alone.

There are more ways to build up the immune system; however, the must-dos listed above have a very big effect.

The healing was natural

Renee by olive tree

A few months ago, I started waking each morning with my jaw stuck on one side. It would loosen with time, and I didn’t concern myself with it until the morning it stayed stuck and hurt. I didn’t worry until the next day when it was still stuck and I could barely open my mouth to eat.

I immediately asked Spirit if I should worry about this painful situation, and Spirit assured me that my body could naturally heal itself. I was instructed to stop sleeping on the side that hurt. That’s it! No other treatment—no vitamins to take, no creams to use, and no doctors or dentists to visit.

The healing took five weeks! The first two weeks, I had to eat food cut into tiny pieces and no sandwiches. The third week, my jaw loosened a bit, and by the fourth week, I could tell it was almost healed. Several times I worried and questioned whether to go to a dentist, but each time Spirit assured me that my body would do the healing work.

Here’s what I learned:

  • The body is truly a marvelous creation, caring for and healing itself.
  • My upbringing to seek outside help at the moment pain is felt has its power over me to doubt my body’s own power to heal.
  • People don’t pay much attention to others. That whole time my jaw was stuck, I didn’t mention it to anyone and no one noticed that I was eating differently and using my mouth differently. We worry what people think of us way too much!
  • Patience is the key to natural healing.

I am fortunate to have this direct connection with Spirit to guide me (my sister calls it cheating 🙂 ) and I know that others feel less confident to rely on natural healing.

My previous post “Standing up for the body” reminds us of the importance of caring for our bodies so that we can hear the messages and know what to do. Had I been paying attention that my jaw hurt on that one side each morning, I could have worked out that my sleeping position was causing the problem.

I can write more about natural healing if my readers let me know they are interested.

Note: My connection is to Spirit who guides me to help myself and others.

When the heart feels abandoned

Post 111 Life is struggle

Abandonment of the heart can be physical and emotional. Ignoring the heart’s calls for help when it physically hurts is physical abandonment. Ignoring the heart’s need for connections is emotional abandonment.

Physical abandonment can be felt more immediately, and ignored calls for attention can lead to impairment of heart function. Physical abandonment can also lead to extended impairment throughout the body.

Emotional abandonment is less immediately noticeable, but it afflicts the body over time if relationships are not nourished. Emotional abandonment is serious, but less ominous.

Physical impairment of the heart can come from improper care of the body, emotional turmoil that is excessive, or genetic weakness:

  • Less can be done about genetic weakness; however, genetic weakness does not condemn a person to heart troubles. An emotionally strong heart can triumph over genetic predisposition to heart troubles.
  • Emotional turmoil that is excessive strains the heart’s functioning. Heartache that leads to depression or restrained emotional connections can cause impairment. Overly excited outbursts of emotion—positive or negative—can disturb heart function over time and lead to weakening the heart’s rhythmic beating.
  • Improper care of the body that leads to impairment of the heart is described in the blog posts “Heart attack secrets” and “Things that harm the heart”.

Physical abandonment of the heart is usually done without understanding that our actions create havoc in our bodies. Choosing to care for the heart involves rethinking choices and habits.

Emotional impairment of the heart can develop because of hurts experienced as a child or young adult, by heartache that is too profound, and by religious teachings that extol martyrdom. Emotional abandonment of the heart is as serious as physical abandonment, but its marks on the body are less pronounced. Its marks are mainly on society and family.

Whether abandonment of the heart is physical or emotional is less important that the fact that the heart can be abandoned. Abandonment of the heart is a sad thing that is reversible and worth fixing.

Blocking highways to the heart

spiritual illness

The heart is a control center with highways of energy flowing through it. The tangible energy is the blood and its components. The intangible energy is the emotional framework and its components.

Tangible and intangible energy flow through the heart control center, and their pathways require uncongested access. The intangible pathways have slow roads and quicker highways for moving emotional information: intuitive information must move quickly, while evaluative information requires slower processing. The tangible flow of blood is meant to stay steady, with clear highways all along the way.

Blockage of the blood’s path to and from the heart is well studied, and many treatments exist for clearing these highways. A lesser know treatment for keeping the highways clear is to drink oregano tea and eat fresh salads and sesame and almond products.

Food to unblock the heart

Oregano tea can prevent blockage when it is part of daily liquid intake that does not include soft drinks or silicon dioxide (in drinks), because these other drinks prevent oregano tea’s anti-inflammatory properties (but not its flavonoid antioxidant properties). The fresh salads require freshness—preservatives negate the clearing effects. Sesame and almond products that contain sugar, sugar substitutes, or preservatives are not helpful. Oregano tea + fresh salads + sesame/almond products can keep the tangible highways less congested, depending on the presence of substances or behaviors that subvert their work (such as tobacco smoke, certain medications [prescription and illicit], certain destructive feelings [see the post “Things that harm the heart” ], and lack of adequate exercise).

The intangible highways to and from the heart become blocked when trauma closes them in. Some traumas can be overcome by refusal to let them block emotional happiness, but others can leave emotional scars that require assistance to help them heal. Some emotional traumas leave blockage that cannot be smoothed, no matter how much psychological and emotional work is done. In these cases, the damage can only be acknowledged and accepted.

The highways to the heart can be maintained through frequent use (physical exercise and building emotional attachments) and by keeping them clear (proper nutrition and investment in supportive relationships).

Keeping these highways in good working order is the foundation for a happy heart!

Heartache is holistic response

spiritual illness

When our hearts are “broken” our bodies respond. We breathe more slowly, we digest more quickly, and our bodies envelop us in care—if we let them.

A broken heart is part of living. Our hearts break when loved ones die or when love is unrequited or when once-in-love is no more.

Our bodies are designed to help us through the heartache, but the help comes by turning inwards and listening: listening to the feelings of pain and acknowledging them, listening to the body’s calls for nourishment, sleep, or attention and honoring them; listening to the memories and cherishing or releasing them, listening to our inner voice and following its lead, and listening to our guardian angels and letting them comfort us. The more we listen, the better we heal.

To listen to ourselves, we have to tune out external noise. The external noise can come from unnecessary distractions and “aids” that medicate the pain (booze, drugs [illicit and prescription], and activities that feel inappropriate). Friends who come to comfort can help with the listening when they come to be true friends.

Heartache will occur throughout our lives. Broken hearts do heal when we take care to help them heal.

Autoimmune Hidden

Psoriasis

Why is turning on oneself a way for survival?

Autoimmunity seems to be mutiny, but it is actually forceful adaptation. Constant and varying, the adaptation occurs and it signals and b-e-l-l-o-w-s and ROARS and booms a message of distress and warning.

The adaptation develops differently for each person, using genetic makeup and psycho-affective-physical state to initiate adaptation. Adaptation is forced because of survival. Without the adaptation, the body cannot handle the trauma, extended bombardment of emotional distress, illness-induced agitation of the genetic makeup or psycho-affective-physical state, or extended bombardment of abusive treatment that it experiences.

Adaptation is forced so that these overwhelming causation factors listed above can be changed. Without changing the autoimmune disorder factors, the body would become unable to protect itself.

Autoimmunity is not mutiny, because it is a protective, natural changing of bodily functioning. The appearance of an autoimmune disorder is not without a cause, no matter how random it may appear to be.

There are similarities among autoimmune disorders. There are also differences, because each person is affected in an only-to-me way. The similarities suggest definable presentations and characteristics, but they actually reflect variations of changes that are bounded by physiology and human functioning. The differences reflect uniqueness that is inherent in the forced adaptations.

Autoimmune disorders cannot be removed from the body, because they have become part of the body. They can be detrimental when they are not accepted as the body’s way of handling the causation factors and are not approached from tolerant and healing outlooks.

Autoimmune disorders cannot be reversed, but proper care can reduce their severity. The blog post “Autoimmune healing!” contains ideas and wisdom to inhibit autoimmune responses.

The hidden aspects of autoimmunity have been explained here. The guidance is from Spirit and the next steps are for humans.

Autoimmune healing!

Psoriasis

Our bodies are designed to function properly.

Autoimmunity is dryness in a flowing river. It is soil that feeds concrete sidewalks and makes them grow. It is a snowball rolling upwards. It is gravity that pulls haphazardly.

Autoimmunity is rewiring. It is not meant to happen unless a defect before birth occurs.

There are so many examples of autoimmunity. Here are a few of them: fibromyalgia, psoriasis, eczema, ankylosing spondylitis, transverse myelitis, multiple sclerosis, scleroderma, and cancer.

Each autoimmune dysfunction has possibility for not occurring, but new types develop nonetheless. The body is strong, but autoimmune dysfunction sabotages it.

A balanced body can ignore autoimmune developments, but a body that is resentful or grieving or fearful or besieged physically gives way when autoimmune genes rule or traumas strike.

Causes that combine with resentment, grief, fear, and physical distress to allow autoimmune dysfunction are: certain ingredients in processed foods; certain ingredients in medications; exposure to certain products used in manufacturing; artificial living conditions; and injuries to bones, muscles or lymphatic nodule arrangements. Some of these causes build in the body until it is weakened and gives way. Some of these causes compromise the body immediately.

The rewiring by autoimmune syndromes and diseases, once in place, is hard to correct. Each person’s autoimmune life has been created individually so that return to pre-affliction is personal. There are general guidelines to heal, but customization is required. Here are five changes that can bring strengthening of the body in its struggle against autoimmune dysfunction:

  1. No to processed foods, especially when the body feels weak. Eat whole foods and prepare meals from scratch.
  2. Yes to spending time in nature. Breathe deeply in nature and experience the natural beauty.
  3. No to sleep deprivation. Schedule sleep so that tiredness is rare.
  4. Yes to thinking about others. Be sure to regularly connect with people you like and help others less fortunate.
  5. Drink water rather than other beverages.
  • Read the side effects on medications you take. More could be said about this guideline, but allopathic medicine “rules” so that’s it.

Autoimmune influence on the body definitely changes functioning, but its ability to overtake can be stopped by making its movement more difficult. Healing comes from understanding that autoimmunity needs to be redirected. The redirection comes from helping the body focus on non-acceptance of autoimmune changes rather than on digestion of foods that stress the digestion, defense against invasive substances, tiredness, self-absorption, perpetuation of the autoimmune response, and unnatural disturbances.

Inhibiting the autoimmune function are the brakes that slow autoimmune damage and create new processes that sidestep autoimmune syndromes and diseases. Each small contribution to inhibition—drinking water instead of coffee, eating vegetable soup rather than fast food fare, walking in a park rather than in a mall, paying attention to the needs of others, choosing sleep over watching a late night movie, overcoming a sugar addiction or a tobacco addiction or a cocaine addiction—helps the body sidestep the rewired reality.

Healing autoimmunity? Not easy, but possible through understanding and day-by-day, small contribution-by-small contribution steps.

Note: The health information presented here is not an in-depth explanation of autoimmune syndromes and diseases, because the causes and treatments are so varied. This information is what Spiritual Presence wants me to share at this time. It is not based on scientific information.

Insomnia and Its Effects

insomnia

The inability to fall asleep and stay asleep affects animals, not just humans. Environmental and health factors contribute to sleep troubles for the sufferers of insomnia.

For people, insomnia has existed throughout history. It is not new, but the causes of insomnia have changed so that the incidents of it have become sources of pride rather than conditions to solve. Pride is the certainty that is heard when some people speak or write about their troubled relationship with sleep. These people view their lack of sleep as a confirmation to their overtaxed way of life.

Many enticements contribute to insomnia: screen addiction (social media, entertainment, porn), television shows, social pressure, medications that affect sleep, tasty caffeinated foods and drinks, deadlines for work or projects, nighttime jobs, overscheduling, events being followed in other time zones, and disdain for time spent sleeping.

The enticements lower the desire to sleep. They entice and dampen communications with the body so that the signals to sleep can be ignored or missed. Insomnia created from ranking activity above sleep, when sleep is the “activity” needed, is hard to cure because of faulty understanding of sleep.

Inactivity is another cause of insomnia. The body is designed for movement—and plenty of it! Lack of movement, when awake, jolts the body while trying to sleep. When the body is not tired but is instructed to sleep, restlessness or wide-awakeness encroaches upon sleep’s sacred territory.

Problems requiring solutions or thoughts that endlessly cycle bring on sleeplessness that is worsened when the thoughts are fearful. Fearful thoughts do not worsen insomnia, but they do increase its harmful effects.

Insomnia that temporarily disrupts sleep activity slightly affects health. Insomnia that becomes chronic has repercussions. Age and location influence the repercussions, but in general, the repercussions are: addled brain function, stressed optical functioning, less sensitivity to discernment of flavors, disrupted olfactory function, confusion of glands, downsized pulmonary functioning, disrupted flow of urea and lactic acid in the blood, overtaxed gallbladder function, stressed kidney functioning, and slowed bone regeneration.

Sleep is life in action! Full action, just like when awake, except that the action is directed towards growth, uninterrupted flows, and repair. The action that takes place during sleep can occur when awake-activities are taking place, but they interrupt each other’s processes. The body must repair itself. The body must grow replacement cells. They body must move life-sustaining nutriment and by-products to their places. Interruption to these processes disturbs balance.

Insomnia deserves healing. The healing required includes removing enticements that interfere with sleep, resisting the urge to glorify issues with sleep, dealing with problems and worries, and learning about the magnificence of sleep—because sleep is truly magnificent!

Headaches and Migraines—What They Mean, cont.

Migraines and headaches are signs that bodily communications have been ignored, and the body is yelling for attention! The attention needed for migraines differs from the attention needed for headaches, but both are cries for relief. Relief from the medicine cabinet is usually the relief the body doesn’t like, and this “solution” is best saved for last place.

The relief for migraines is discussed in this blog post. Headaches are discussed in the previous post https://energy-guidance-complete.com/2017/06/01/headaches-and-migraines-what-they-mean/

Migraineland

It’s a place that is entered suddenly or in stages, and once entered, it commands attention. Migraineland is experienced by all ages, and it is a way of living that is sometimes passed from generation to generation.

The causes that unleash the reality of Migraineland living are many, and each person lives the reality with individualized distress. Sensitivities to foods or cleansers or sounds can delineate a direction into migraine territory, so that their influence actually initiates a migraine or encourages other migraine activators to initiate migraine domination of the body.

Other migraine activators are: sleep deficiency, seasonal fluctuations, uninterrupted viewing of screens for too long, medications that produce migraine reactions, ignoring the urge to defecate, constipation, contact with poisonous substances, light (natural and artificial), daily encounters with crowded living, abrupt changes in altitude (for example, when climbing a mountain) or speed (for example, when riding a roller coaster), erratic eating, compression of spinal nerve roots in the spinal cord, inactivity of the ileocecal valve in the small intestine, and certain metals. These activators can initiate a migraine or encourage other activators to initiate migraine domination of the body.

A person’s emotional state can also initiate a migraine or encourage other migraine activators to initiate migraine domination of the body. Emotional activators are worry, sorrow, constant suspicious view of others, feeling that overwhelming sense of guilt, self-induced or externally applied pressure, and weariness and sadness from societal tragedies and events that are not directly felt but cause personal anguish.

These emotional activators initiate different types of migraines. Their appearance varies throughout a person’s life, and they prompt migraines when they have emotional control of a person’s thinking. Emotional activators are not easy to see as causes of migraines, but they are very involved in creating Migraineland.

Sometimes a child learns migraine suffering from a parent. Migraines are not genetic, but they live within mimicable behavior and adapt to lifestyle differences. The experience of a migraine is a bonding rite of passage for a parent who unwittingly teaches the child to suffer. Intergenerational suffering in Migrainelands’ clasping grasp and possessiveness belies the differences that create each person’s set of migraine initiators.

To understand migraines demands understanding consequences. Migraines build upon dysfunction in the body. Dysfunction differs in each body so that the migraines differ in presentation, which confuses healing steps.

To heal migraines requires understanding the consequences of choices, limitations, and outlook. Each person suffering with migraines creates a personal Migraineland. To prevent migraines, Migraineland must be squeezed down and not be entered. Closing down Migraineland heals the migraine way of life.

Migraines become a way of life, a way that is off the true path of living. The efforts required to let them go are sometimes confusing, but they bring relief and healing.

Note: Spiritual Presence shares this information so that the path to healing can be understood.

Headaches and Migraines—What They Mean

Headaches and migraines are signs that bodily communications have been ignored, and the body is yelling for attention. The attention needed for headaches differs from the attention needed for migraines, but both are cries for relief. Relief from the medicine cabinet is usually the relief the body doesn’t like, and this “solution” is best saved for last place.

The relief for headaches is discussed in this blog post. Migraines are discussed in the next post: https://energy-guidance-complete.com/2017/06/07/headaches-and-migraines-what-they-mean-cont/

Headaches occur for many reasons. Here are a few of them: (1) missing water (slight to serious dehydration), (2) discomfort in the surrounding temperature (too cold, too artificial [air conditioning/heating], or too controlled [as in an airplane]), (3) feelings of incompetence or stress, and (4) hunger.

Headaches are signs that communications about discomfort have been ignored. The body reacts to the unheeded warnings by directing protective responses to the areas that are suffering and giving a more insistent sign, which can be a headache. The headache is not the body’s discomfort cause, but it becomes a focus that needs attention.

“Curing” the headache will help the body if the cure addresses the causes of the headache.

If the cause is dehydration, then drinking water lessens the headache and rehydrates the body. If the cause is temperature discomfort, then changing locations, putting on warmer clothing, or adjusting position and breathing (when location can’t be changed) lessen the headache and comfort the body. If the cause is feelings of incompetence or stress, assuaging the headache necessitates understanding that self-imposed negativity can be changed, questioning current direction appropriateness, or applying less pressure to achieve. If the cause is hunger, then eating foods that sustain lessens the headache and placates starvation.

Relief for the headache comes from relief for the headache instigators. Without relieving the causes of headaches, the body communication systems suffer and further distress can occur.

Four reasons for headaches have been presented, but there are many more. Here are others: shallow breathing, sleep deprivation, posture that constricts flows, headwear that is too binding, overall weakening of muscles, focus that is too concentrated, and disappointment that constantly replays in the mind. Each of these reasons for headaches has its cure. Each reason uses headaches to grab attention.

Would cancer disappear if we all took care of our bodies?

I posed this question to Spiritual Presence, and here is the answer I received.

Another question has to be answered first. This question is: What causes cancer? Here is the answer:

Cancer develops when the body confuses itself. Confusion can come from sudden causes like exposure to powerful carcinogens and from slow developing causes like tobacco and sodium nitrite. Once confusion begins, the body opens to changes in functionality, which opens the way for cancerous growths to form. Cancer takes hold when the body cannot stop its development.

There are chemical causes and nutritional causes. There are emotional causes and genetic triggers. There are also natural contributors and internal agitators.

That’s the general answer to the first question. Now for the second question: would cancer disappear if we all took care of our bodies?

Answer: The intensity and frequency of cancer would significantly reduce. Cancer would not disappear completely because of pollution, accidents (when accidents hurt the body, sometimes cancerous growths can occur), and social isolation.

Here are the things you can do to reduce your body’s confusion:

  1. Remove poisons from your life. They include (a) health treatments that list cancer as a side effect or possible side effect, (b) overconsumption of alcoholic beverages, (c) cigarettes and other tobacco products, (d) poisonous cleaning products (products that have poisonous warning labels on them), and (e) exposure to known cancer-causing sources (such as asbestos).
  2. Be aware of pollutants in your areas of home, work, school, and recreation. If you live in an area that is known to have carcinogenic aspects, and you cannot move, be sure to choose recreational activities in an area that is free of similar carcinogens.
  3. If you walk in areas with concentrated car or airplane fumes, do not linger in those areas. If you have daily exposure to these fumes, drink water before and after the exposure.
  4. The more deeply you breathe, the more your body can repair itself. Practice breathing techniques regularly. At night, breathe deeply when lying in bed before sleep to increase the rejuvenating work of sleep.
  5. Part of the body’s care of itself takes place when the body is moving. Exercise and movement are therapies for the body to prevent cancer. Attitude affects the body’s care of itself so if you dislike the exercise you have chosen to do, it will not have the same protective value as exercise you enjoy. Breathing deeply when exercising increases the protective value of the exercise. Walking is the basic exercise that provides protection.
  6. The ill effects of ingredients in processed foods are somewhat known. Don’t eat known or suspected carcinogenic ingredients. Shelf-life preservatives are not protective of the body. Eating fresh foods is best.
  7. Sitting in bed so that the stomach is a table for a book, food, or electronic device interferes with body circulation. Circulation of flows in the body is very important. Improve your posture when standing, sitting, and carrying heavy objects.
  8. Live life with more positivity. When you eat, remember to be thankful and remember to eat moderately. Focus on the parts of the body that don’t hurt rather than the parts that do (and take care of the parts that hurt rather than suffer unnecessarily). Nourish your intellect, and choose intellectual challenges that are interesting. Be kind to yourself.
  9. Protect against the sun’s rays and feel the sun on your body during the less hot times of the day. Working in buildings that have no sunlight streaming in confuses the body’s defenses. Exposure to sunlight is important.
  10. Anxiety experienced when deciding about minor issues (for example, parking the car) is immune system lowering. Releasing anxiety is healing.
  11. Doing work and engaging in life events that upset you are immune system lowering. If you can’t change the work or the life decisions, find positivity in them and release the frustration.
  12. The development of cancer can be slow. Changing one’s lifestyle when the cancer is non-apparent can decrease its growth, especially if the changes include positivity about life decisions and attitude.
  13. Clothing that is dry cleaned, disliked but worn anyway, or too constricting can contribute to immune system lowering. For people who care about the clothes they wear, the clothing should be uplifting.
  14. Spiritual connection can strengthen the body, if the connection is sincere. People who are disconnected from spirituality can be strengthened through connection to nature. The connection to “beyond oneself” is strengthening.

Generalizations about Good Health

Breathe

The importance of eating well, exercising, and sleeping enough are well known. Here are reminders about steps towards good health.

  • Sitting at a table while eating improves digestion. Eating while cooking, while moving, and when driving do not.
  • Each person determines the amount of water that is right for him or her. Time of day and season influence. So do age and stress.
    • Everyone should drink water when they arise.
    • Young people need more water than old people.
    • Seasonal considerations for drinking water: shorter daylight (in winter months) requires less water than longer daylight (in summer months).
    • Warm water is better than cold water when the body is tired. It is also better when the immune system is stressed physically or emotionally.
    • General guidelines for water consumption can be considered when determining amounts of water to drink, but the variables listed here should also be considered.
  • By breathing deeply, the body handles emotional changes better. Whenever emotional turmoil occurs, deep breathing and water can help regulate the turmoil.
  • The requirements for movement depend on food consumption, personality, attention capabilities, and seasons.
    • Eating the amount of food the body needs fuels the appropriate amount of exercise based on the three other variables.
    • More movement is required by people who are high energy personalities.
    • The environments in which focus is required add or subtract from movement needs: focus during physical work uses extended expenditures of movement; focus during sedentary work pressures muscles and elimination processes to accelerate reminders to use them.
    • Variations in temperature influence the body’s push towards movement.
  • Activity in the body during sleep is different from activity during awake time. Both types of activity are equally important, just different. Sleep should be scheduled and should be evaluated for appropriateness to age, habitat, and season.

One step at a time–a step towards proper nutrition, a step towards proper sleep, and towards proper breathing–step by step leading to good health and satisfaction!

Leaves--Journey

In The Gift for Intuitive, Dedicated Comfort, the journey of life is explored.

“The path one chooses is actually many paths; each path leading into a wider and longer path. The ability to try is the key to creating a valuable life. Valuable here means creatively challenged, joyful, balanced in terms of self vs. community, and accepting of the vagrancies of nature and life events. So many tributaries feed into the river that forms and sculpts our lives. Each chance meeting; each struggle to learn something new, to hone existing skills, to push beyond; each encounter with nature; each encounter with nature’s creatures; each exchange—verbal, physical, or with divine understanding; each decision, non-decision, decision result. All these parts combine, repel, stack, and group to shape, mold, and create the people that we are.”

“…each encounter with nature, each encounter with nature’s creatures…”  Many of us tend to trivialize the importance of our encounters with the environment and with other living creatures.  “The connection to flora and fauna significantly 1) broadens and heightens understanding of cycles and fluctuations; 2) develops appreciative and inquisitive capabilities; and 3) causes people to examine and work with vegetation that aid human life and animals that enhance human existence.” from Oneself-Living.

The photo above is my attempt at nature art. As the wind blew my collected leaves around, I thought about the need to relax expectations (I had collected 1000 leaves). The leaves were interesting to work with: varying colors, sizes, and shapes; easy to work with until the wind whipped them up; and versatile in their ability to form lines, corners, and curves.

The more we encounter nature, the more we understand ourselves.

Eating to be Fine

tomato-sorrel-salad

Food is SO confusing. We want it to taste good. We want it to be appealing. And, oh yea, we want it to nourish us.

Actually, many of us forget about the nourishing part of food and focus on the tastiness. Delicious is the main word, not nutritious.

Tasty satisfies for the moments the food is in the mouth, but once it has been swallowed, tasty becomes irrelevant. Nutritional value becomes key.

If the food was tasty and nutritious, the taste buds, digestive system, and body are satisfied. If the food was tasty but devoid of nutritional value, the taste buds were satisfied, but the body feels betrayed.

Our bodies can’t understand why we would insert food that harms us. The body then has to process the harmful foods as best it can. Continuous consumption of harmful foods leads to mutiny by the body—diabetes, diverticulitis, stomachaches, constipation, inflammation, and blockages, among other ailments.

Eating to be fine means putting the body’s health first: eating an apple rather than an apple fritter; saying no to cola with the meal; ordering whole grain items from the menu to encourage restaurants to provide whole grain options; sharing dessert rather than consuming the whole thing; ignoring marketing attempts to get you to buy highly processed foods.

Eating to be fine adds years to life and wellness to years. Feeling good beats a momentary taste pleasure hands down!

Letting the Body Heal

healing-well

In “Samba ’til the End— Experiencing Well-Being in the Later Years”, one of the maintenance tips for aging well is to listen to your body and find healing through natural means.

Our bodies are designed to monitor and fix themselves, but the monitoring and fixing take time. When we choose activities, foods, or lifestyles that overwhelm natural healing, the monitoring and fixing slow or stop. Listening to our bodies when they are overwhelmed is crucial to healing. Without the natural monitoring and fixing, diseases and illnesses can overtake and overwhelm our bodies.

Negative Influences

Here are activities, foods, and lifestyles that slow or stop the body’s ability to monitor and fix itself.

Undereating; a sedentary lifestyle; overusing medications, alcohol, or tobacco; worrying; accepting other people’s evaluations of your health when you feel they are incorrect; hydrogenated-manipulated food stuff; eating and drinking artificially sweetened or sugared drinks and food; disdain and contempt for others; toxic and addictive substances; constricting posture; inactivation or removal of organs and other body parts; stress; exposure to toxic substances; and rejection of bodily signals to sleep, eliminate, extend (the muscles), or eat.

Positive Influences

Here are activities, foods, and lifestyles that enhance the body’s ability to monitor and fix itself.

Deep breathing; a giving lifestyle; smiling; preventative health care; attention to posture; a diet rich in vegetables, whole grains, and enjoyment (mealtimes that are pleasant and not rushed); spending time with nature:  in parks, at a beach, on a hike, and connecting with the seasons; active movement: walking, dancing, swimming, etc.; paying attention to the body’s signals of unwellness and helping it heal through rest and protection; eating and drinking in moderation; love; and acknowledgement of bodily signals to sleep, eliminate, extend (the muscles), or eat.

Healing and Disease

Healing won’t take place when attitude and disease overtake the healing mechanisms. A positive attitude can counter disease, but the positive attitude must be sincere to have impact.

Healing and Aging

Aging affects the body’s speed of healing. In general, healing slows. When healing has slowed, the impact of positive and negative influences is more pronounced. Negative influences can speed death and render the aging unbearable. Positive influences can increase life expectancy and render the aging enjoyable. Healing remains active when the body is treated well.

Holistic Caregivers: Choosing Your Team

Post 13-screen beans supporting

Holistic caregivers abound. So many to choose from, so how do you choose? There are homeopaths, reflexologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, nutritionists, and art therapists. There is Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine and faith healing and energy healing. Music therapy can help as can aromatherapy. What about shiatsu and Energy Guidance and myofascial release? And so many more!

There is no single healing solution that works for everyone. Often a combination of healing methods works best. No matter the healing method(s) you choose, you want to find holistic caregivers that help you heal and be healthy.

Here are criteria for choosing your team of holistic caregivers:

  • The caregiver looks you in the eye.
    (A caregiver who cannot look directly at you is not sure.)
  • The healing method seems natural to the caregiver.
    (A caregiver who believes in the healing capacity of the chosen method will exude trust in the method. The caregiver is using the healing method because of a firm conviction in its healing possibilities.)
  • The caregiver has a firm grasp of the healing method.
    (Some holistic healing methods require years of study. Some require years of experience. Some require surety.)
  • The caregiver is adept at creating a healing experience.
  • The caregiver gets results.

Here are signs that the person calling himself or herself a holistic caregiver is not meant to be doing this work:

  • The person’s approach is negative.
    (It the person approaches your concerns in a negative way, that person might have too much negativity in his or her own life to be doing healing work at this time.)
  • The person tells you that you will not know the results of your treatment for a long period of time.
    (Holistic healing can take time to occur. The nature of holistic healing is steady and unrushed. However, if the person says you will not know whether the treatment succeeded for a year, find another caregiver.)
  • The person tells you that only he or she can heal you.
    (A caregiver wants healing to occur and knows there are many paths to healing. A caregiver who advises against going to other caregivers might be doing so for financial reasons.)

Here are signs that a holistic caregiver is not meant to be working with you (even though the caregiver might be helpful to others):

  • You feel a lack of confidence in the caregiver.
  • You feel that the caregiver is not listening to you.
  • You feel that the caregiver is not sincere.

I have worked with many people and know that my healing methods are not appropriate for everyone. If a person comes to me whom I can tell will not benefit from Energy Guidance Complete, I am honest and let him or her know. Sometimes it takes more than one session for me to know. I have referred people to other healing methods to do in conjunction with Energy Guidance Complete or in place of. Each person has different needs and can benefit from different approaches.

When you find a healing caregiver who helps you understand your body and yourself better, nurture this connection.
A healing caregiver is wonderful to have on your team!

Pain Emotional

Post 126-body massage

Knee pain. I’ve had knee pain off and on through the years. I ruled out physical causes several years ago when physical therapies didn’t relieve the pain. At one point, I examined a conflict with a loved one and when we worked it out, the pain went away.

Lately, the pain came back. Actually it comes and goes. Once again, physical therapies don’t relieve the pain.

I finally turned to Spirit to determine the cause. (Why did I wait so long?) And I learned that once again, emotional turmoil has come into play. The emotion–disappointment–has entangled itself around my kneecap. A person close to me disappointed me, and the disappointment hurts me physically and emotionally. Turns out that the pain in my knee reflects several disappointments from my adult life.

To relieve the pain, I must care for the disappointment with kindness. To do that, I will not try to relive the disappointments that happened; rather, I will create a way for the disappointments to dissolve. (I’m not explaining the Energy Guidance Complete way this will happen, because it differs from person to person.) When the disappointment has dissolved, the pain will end.

My experience reflects the experiences of many people. Emotional turmoil sometimes lodges in the body and manifests as physical pain. This type of pain is hard to treat, because emotional wounds defy physical treatments.

Back pain, knee pain, stomachaches, skin eruptions, and abdominal ailments are types of physical problems that often have emotional causes. When these problems occur, the best healing approaches are holistic therapies. When physical and emotional healing of physical problems occur, the healing is more often successful.

The body heals when causes are understood and acknowledged. As with me and my knee, emotions are responsible for the body’s responses. Pain and joy affect the way we feel, and the way we feel creates the pain or joy.

The more we focus on emotions that are positive, the better we feel. The more we allow negative emotions to fester, the more chance of physical pain. Even when difficult things happen in life, positive rather than negative helps prevent lasting harm.

The power of emotional healing is incredible. The first step is to understand its existence!

The Healing Attitude

Healing is tricky. It is not available to those who use illness to attain a goal. Many use illness to keep from participating in life. Look at the people you know who are ill and consider the last sentence. It does not apply to all, but to many.

When we are ill, we should take the necessary precautions and mending steps. Mending steps include sleep, hydration, nutrient intake, and positive focus. Staying away from others when contagious. Staying away from temptations. Staying away from activity. Staying away from over-excitement, over-exertion and over-indulgence (not meaning overindulgence of food, rather overindulgence of self-pity or self-over-focus [I’m-too-unwell-to-deal-with-life-and-think-of-others]).

Healing can be quick or languishing depending on our age, attitude, previous physical condition, and determination, and of course, on the healing issue. Feeling determined to be well is very important. Any trace of benefit from the illness or condition can slow the healing process. Even a well meant show of sympathy can slow the healing. Best to heal with as little sympathy as possible. Attitude influences on all levels-physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. A happy attitude greatly enhances healing.

Healing and wellness are possible when we truly want them!

 

How does the body heal when the appendix is removed?

Cover-Signals that Inspire

The appendix is one of the organs that oversees complex healing mechanisms in the body. When it is inactivated because of removal, other organs and healing entities compensate, depending on the person’s overall health.

Removal of the appendix is a regular procedure that is performed to prevent rupture of the appendix. Preventative medicine can generally prevent the need for its removal. From the book Signals that Inspire and Intertwine: …once the appendix has become inflamed or abscessed, removal is a solution.”

The appendix controls upper level healing mechanisms. Without the appendix, the body works less smoothly when these extra healing forces are needed.

The appendix is the organ that bridges between the spiritual and physical worlds. That connection is affected when the appendix is removed, but  the connection is continued as though a phantom appendix exists. When life is coming to an end, the appendix governs end-of-life preparations, and so other entities in the body must compensate when the appendix is not there.

Signals that Inspire and Intertwine presents spiritually received information that explains the roles of the appendix and “signals” in the body. This book is an introduction to the complex system that protects and heals our bodies. Besides the appendix, the pineal gland, spleen, and liver assist with extra healing mechanisms that kick in when the body’s regular defenses cannot handle the onslaught of too much distress.
