Heal Allergies Fast with a Simple Acupressure Technique!

TAT is a swift and powerful means of affecting Behavioral Change by changing negative emotions, past trauma, limiting beliefs and physical symptoms quickly, painlessly and very effectively. It frequently yields results where everything else has failed. You owe it to yourself to take a close look at it! It is one of the most effective Behavioral Change Therapies out there!

California Acupuncturist Tapas Fleming developed TAT or Tapas Acupressure technique. The technique based on Chinese Medicine involves holding certain acupuncture points whilst focussing on the problem requiring treatment. It came about a few years ago when the focus of Tapas's practice was the treatment of allergies. At the time she was using a treatment devised by Dr.Devi Nambudripad called NAET. This required the patient to avoid the allergen for a period of 24 hours after treatment. In many cases this was fine but in instances of severe allergy it could also mean the person was restricted to a bread and water-eating programme for a full day after treatment. This could be very stressful particularly in the case of children. One afternoon during a lull in patient workload she had an insight to use Urinary Bladder 1 to solve her dilemma. UB 1 or "Eyes Bright" is an acupuncture point located on the edge of the inner eye, adjacent to the nose. She found that if she used this point along with the third eye and the occipital ridge at the back of the head, her patients could be desensitised to their allergy and could then return to a normal diet as soon as they got home. This overcame the whole stressful problem of 24 hours avoidance. Moreover, she discovered it wasn't necessary to needle the points, merely holding them whilst thinking of the reactive substance was sufficient to bring about the required change.

Then she stumbled upon something else that was to take the TAT protocol outside the range of allergy treatment and into a much wider field of application. Tapas was working with a patient who had a sensitivity to salt. During the treatment it turned out that she had been sexually abused as a child. Each time the abuse occurred, it took place in a bar. After the perpetrator had finished he gave the little girl a packet of potato chips. Potato chips or crisps are very salty. When Tapas used her new technique she found not only did the allergy disappear but also the causative trauma of abuse. Now she realised TAT was a very good method for healing traumas and many other things as well.

The treatment requires the client to hold the points with both hands in what is called the Tapas pose. The practitioner asks the person to put her mind on the problem and maintain the pose for approximately one minute. This is repeated through seven steps. The technique sounds incredibly easy but the affects are profound. Tapas tells us "thoughts are real, with real energy!" "If these thoughts are suppressed they create negative energy patterns which impact life and health". In Chinese Medicine, the home of acupuncture, energy blocks are the root cause of disease. Think of the strictures as dams in a river. Above the dam lies a large body of water and below a mere trickle or stream. Acupuncture works because you place a tiny electrical charge by way of a metal needle, either below or above the dam and this like an explosive shifts the blockage and allows energy to flow freely, and thus balance is restored!

Traumas and negative emotions are a bit like this dam. On one side is you and on the other the negative experience. The result is a block. Thanks to TAT we can free the obstruction by engaging it through the technique. This gives us an opportunity to see over the dam, if you like! The new perspective allows you to view the event in a different light and this will always change it in some way. Holding the TAT pose somehow integrates the discomfort of the past event and brings about peace and harmony. In the Tao this is balance and from a place of balance we have healing and ultimate wellness. This balance is the essence of Behavior Change Therapy.

Osho on Resistance.

IF YOU ARE POSITIVE, THEN NOTHING IS NEGATIVE FOR YOU. If you are negative, then everything will be negative for you.

YOU ARE THE SOURCE OF ALL THAT EXISTS AROUND YOU, you are the creator of your own world. And we are not living in one world, remember. There are as many worlds as there are minds. Each mind is living in its own world; it creates the world.

So if everything looks negative and everything looks destructive and everything looks inimical, against you, it is because you do not have the positive center in you... IF YOU FEEL NEGATIVITY ALL AROUND YOU, it simply shows you are negative within. The world is just a mirror, and you are reflected in it.

I WAS STAYING IN A REST HOUSE, in a village rest house. It was a very poor village, but the village was filled with many dogs. They all gathered in the night around the rest house. It may have been their usual habit. The rest house was a good place -- big trees, shadow, and they might have been resting there every night. So I was staying there, and one minister of a particular state was staying there. The minister became very much disturbed because the dogs were barking, creating much nuisance. Half the night passed and the minister couldn't sleep, so he came to me.
He said, "Are you asleep?" I was fast asleep, so he came near me, made me wake up and asked me, "PLEASE TELL ME HOW YOU COULD FALL INTO SLEEP AMID SUCH NOISES ALL AROUND. At least twenty to thirty dogs are there, and they are fighting and barking and doing everything that dogs ordinarily do. So what to do? I cannot sleep, it will be difficult for me. The next day I have to go again on a tour. I will leave early in the morning. Sleep doesn't seem to come, and I have tried all the methods I have learned and heard about -- chanting mantra, praying to God, etc. I have done everything, but nothing happens, so what to do now?"
So I told him, "THOSE DOGS ARE NOT GATHERED HERE FOR YOU OR TO DISTURB YOU. They are not even aware that a minister is staying here; they do not read newspapers. They are completely ignorant; they are not here purposefully. They are not concerned with you. They are doing their work. Why you are getting disturbed?"
So he said, "Why I should not? How not to? With so much barking, how can I go into sleep?"
So I told him. "Do not fight with the barking. You are fighting: that is the problem -- not the noise. The noise is not disturbing you; YOU ARE DISTURBING YOURSELF BECAUSE OF THE NOISE. You are against the noise, so you have a condition. You are saying, 'If the dogs stop barking, then I will sleep.' The dogs won't listen to you. You have a condition. You feel that if the condition is fulfilled, then you can sleep. This condition is disturbing you. Accept the dogs! Do not make a condition that 'If they stop barking then I will sleep.' Just accept.
"Dogs are there and they are barking: DO NOT RESIST; DO NOT FIGHT; do not try to forget those noises. Accept them and listen to them: they are beautiful. The night is so silent, and they are barking so vitally. Just listen. This will be the mantra -- the right mantra: just listen to them."
So he said, "Okay! I do not believe that this will help, but as there is nothing else to do, I will try." HE FELL ASLEEP, AND DOGS WERE STILL BARKING. In the morning he said, "This is miraculous. I accepted them; I withdrew my condition. I listened. Those dogs became very musical, and their barking, their noise, was not disturbing. Rather, it became a sort of lullaby, and I fell into deep sleep because of it."

IT DEPENDS ON YOUR MIND. If you are positive, then everything becomes positive. If you are negative, then everything turns negative, everything turns sour. So please remember this -- not only about noises, but about everything in life: IF YOU FEEL THAT SOMETHING NEGATIVE EXISTS AROUND YOU, go and find the cause within. It is you. You must be expecting something, you must be desiring something, you must be making some conditions.

EXISTENCE CANNOT BE FORCED TO GO ACCORDING TO YOU; it flows in its own way. If you can flow with it, you will be positive. If you fight with it, you will become negative and the whole thing, the whole cosmos around you, will turn negative.

IT IS JUST LIKE A PERSON WHO IS TRYING TO FLOAT UPSTREAM: then the stream is negative. If you are trying to float upstream in a river, then the river will seem negative and you will feel that the river is fighting you -- that the river is pushing you downwards. The river is trying to move you downstream, not upstream, so it will seem as if the river is fighting you. The river is completely unaware of you, blissfully unaware. And it is good; otherwise the river will go to a madhouse. THE RIVER IS NOT FIGHTING WITH YOU; you are fighting with the river. You are trying to float upstream.

I WILL TELL YOU ONE ANECDOTE. A great crowd gathered around Mulla Nasrudin's house, and they said, "What are you doing? You wife has fallen into the stream and the river is in a flood. Go immediately; otherwise the stream will take your wife to the sea." The sea was just near, so Mulla came running to the bank, jumped into the stream and started swimming upstream to find where his wife was.
So the crowd screamed, "What are you doing, Nasrudin? Your wife couldn't have gone upstream. She has gone downstream." So Mulla said, "Do not disturb me. I know my wife very well. If anyone else had fallen into the stream, he would have gone downstream. Not my wife, however. She must have gone upstream. I know my wife well, I have lived with her forty years."

The mind is always trying to go upsteam, to move upstream. FIGHTING WITH EVERYTHING, YOU CREATE A NEGATIVE WORLD AROUND YOU. Obviously, this has to happen. The world is not against you. Because you are not with the world, you feel it is against you. Float downstream, and then the river will help you to float. Then your energy will not be needed. The river will become a boat: it will take you. You will not lose any energy floating downstream; because once you float downstream, you have accepted the river, the current, the flow, the direction, everything. Then you have become positive to it. When you are positive, the river is positive to you.

Healer's Prayer

“I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent him who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say
Or what to do,
Because he who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be wherever he wishes
Knowing he goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let him teach me to heal.”

It’s Raining Oil in New Orleans:

Unfortunately, we live in a very toxic world. Yes, this is a toxicity of the mind, body and spirit, because we cannot really look at one of the headings without taking into account another. We all know, although the full story has not been revealed that millions of liters of crude oil are flowing from the rupture at the sea bed out into the Gulf of Mexico. This threatens to destroy wildlife, sea life and the environment in a huge swathe of destruction that will spread its web deep over the Atlantic Ocean unless swiftly stopped. As the sun heats the water of the Gulf, it will vaporize and eventually fall to the land as rain. This rain will contain oil which will damage plants and animal life far inland from the actual site of the spill. The Gulf Stream starts in the Gulf of Mexico so vast globs of this poisonous crude will be transported across the Atlantic to Europe. They are trying to mop up the spilt oil with toxic chemicals which simply compound the problem and to make matters even worse; much of this is under-reported by a compliant media.

Other than the oil presently spewing into the Atlantic Ocean we are bombarded by toxins on a daily basis. There are pesticides in vegetables and fruit, there are noxious chemicals in the cleaning products we use in the home and the beauty products we slather onto our skin contain potent poisons like glycol and sodium laurel sulphate. It is little wonder that good health is on the decline and diseases like cancer have reached epidemic proportions. The manufactures tell the public that a little of this and a little of that poison is perfectly OK and harmless in such small amounts. They have a blinkered view as a little of this and a little of that in one product is probably relatively all right but when the problem is viewed cumulatively, it definitely is not acceptable. We are looking at the straw that broke the camel’s back type scenario.

In order to survive the body has to detoxify these poisons. The principal organ of detoxification is the liver. Nobody is safe from mass contamination and the liver needs a lot of help so that everybody can stay as healthy as possible. The picture grows a little less bright, on realizing that most if not all pharmaceutical medicines and over the counter drugs are in themselves poisonous. These have to be cleared by the liver. Stress surrounds everybody. The autonomic nervous system has a design fault. It emerged at a time when very real threats like saber toothed tigers lived just around the corner. On encountering a tiger the choice was either to run (fear) or fight (anger). To activate these responses adrenaline is needed. The adrenal response floods the body with hormones that switch us into accelerated, sympathetic mode designed to increase strength, stamina and alter blood flow amongst many other changes which are there to improve coping skills in a dangerous situation. Hans Selye called this the “flight or fight” response. These hormones are poisons, too. It is the liver’s function to neutralize them so they pass safely out of the system.

The liver has an unenviable job. It generates enzymes that convert these poisons, including alcohol, into harmless carbon-dioxide and Oxygen. Too many toxins overwork the liver and cause it to harden. This is what cirrhosis is. However, the liver, which is the largest organ in the body, is fully able to regenerate itself. It deserves a break, because if the it wasn’t working properly your system would be overwhelmed by all these toxins and you would die. Silymarin or Milk Thistle is nature’s remedy for an overloaded liver. This is the supplement to take with you when you are marooned on a desert island and can take no other with you. If cash is an issue this is the one supplement to buy. It replaces a myriad of other supplements, saving you a lot of money in the long run.

Milk Thistle is a tall spiky plant which grows best in regions with a Mediterranean type climate. It can be found growing in Spain, Italy and the South of France. The legend goes that the white milk like substance that flows from the leaves is “milk” from the Virgin Mother herself! It is not a new remedy. Historically it has been used to treat liver problems since Roman times. However, in much more recent times it was found that Milk Thistle could neutralize the poisonous effects of carbon tetrachloride, which can cause live failure. Carbon tetrachloride is a cleaning agent and a component of Freon gas used in refrigerators and air conditioners. However, when the dangers of this chemical became apparent its usage was severely reduced. In the USA it served as a pesticide until banned in 1970.

Milk Thistle protects the liver by, firstly, forming a protective shield around the organ itself. This keeps toxic invaders out and helpful nutrients in! Secondly, Milk Thistle is a very powerful anti-oxidant, thus is acts as a free radical scavenger which gives added protection to the beleaguered liver. When Oxygen molecules lack an electron things go a little crazy! Lone electrons have to find a partner at all costs. Whilst they do this they rip through cell walls and cause a lot of serious damage. Milk Thistle gives up an electron of its own to halt this destructive process. Thirdly, Silymarin or Milk Thistle serves as a powerful detoxificant due to a process called conjugation. Molecules attach themselves to silymarin. In essence what occurs is the invasive non-polar compounds are dissipated because they make water soluble metabolites which then can excreted in the usual way.
If you want to protect the liver which is a very necessary precaution to take in today’s world, a regular intake of Milk Thistle will help the liver cope better with today’s toxic world. The suggested dosage is 200mg first thing in the morning and another 200mg last thing at night. Milk Thistle might not stop the Louisiana oil spill but it will help protect your body’s responses to the all pervasive toxic overload to which it is constantly being exposed!

I came across this from Osho the other day. Frankly, I think it is inspirational. Kiran Schmidt, the creator of the CoRe system is always talking about DLE or'Dynamic Labile Equilibrium". I only really began to grasp this when he came to Bangkok and gave a workshop back in February. What is DLE? It's instability, or a state of constant change. Many people seem to crave stability, but stability isn't change! It's all about things remaining the same and to most people this spells out comfort zone, safety and security. But is it life? I believe Osho answers that question here.

"WHY ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF BEING IN A WRONG SITUATION? -- because the wrong situation is very ego-shattering, and the right situation is very ego-enhancing.

In fact, to think of the future is to think in terms of the ego. So remain with the moment. IF IT IS NEEDED FOR YOUR GROWTH -- that you should go in a wrong direction -- IT WILL HAPPEN. And you cannot avoid it, because avoiding it will be avoiding your own growth. You cannot avoid anything. So whatsoever is available, enjoy it to your total capacity; respond to it totally. Let this moment give all that it can give to you. And the next moment is going to be born out of this moment

IF THIS MOMENT HAS BEEN RIGHTLY LIVED, from where will the next moment come? IT WILL GROW OUT OF THIS MOMENT. It is going to take on the same quality. It is going to be a continuity with this moment; the next moment is not coming out of the blue. It grows out of you like a leaf grows out of the tree. It comes from your roots... it is nourished by your life juice. So if this moment is lived rightly... And when I use the word 'rightly', I don't mean in the sense puritans use it; I don't mean the meaning that moralists will like to enforce on it.

TO LIVE RIGHTLY MEANS TO LIVE TOTALLY. It is not being virtuous, it is just being whole. The right is not against wrong or against sin. The right is only against being partial. Don't be partial, don't be fragmentary. And the right has nothing to do with any goal, any perfectionist's ideal. The right has something to do with the feel of this moment. IF YOU FEEL GOOD, IT IS RIGHT. Easy is right, happiness is right.

SO CELEBRATE THIS MOMENT, enjoy this moment, delight in this moment -- and the tomorrow will take care of itself. Think not of the morrow. The moment you start thinking that you may go wrong, that you have to go right, the ego has entered. It is the ego that is worried about its decoration -- morality, good, virtue, respectability... some "shoulds". So just remain with the moment, as much as possible, and everything will go right. If this moment is right, everything is going to be right.

THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF BEING RIGHT: if you are happy in this moment, nothing is going to be wrong. Happiness is a sure indication that things are flowing with the total; you are one with the universal.

HAPPINESS ARISES ONLY WHEN THERE IS A HARMONY between you and the whole... when there is no conflict, when there is no pain. Then there is sheer joy -- and the joy is incredible because you cannot even find any cause to it. You cannot explain why it is there. It is there unexplained; and it is utterly there, for no reason at all -- it is simply there. It is there like a mystery. SO LIVE IN THE MOMENT, and by and by start dropping these tensions of the future. If you go wrong, you go wrong; nothing is wrong in it. DON'T BE A COWARD -- be courageous! In life, a few wrong things happen. In fact, they are part of life.

YOU CANNOT WEAVE A CLOTH unless the thread is put in such a way that each thread is crossed by another thread, the vertical is crossed by the horizontal; otherwise the cloth will not exist. A good man is simply good; he is a heap of thread, he is not a cloth. A bad man is simply bad; he is again a heap of thread, not a cloth. A WHOLE MAN IS BOTH. He accepts God and devil both, day and night both. And in that acceptance is transcendence. In the very acceptance, you are neither good nor bad. You have gone beyond both; you become a witness. And that's what real sanctity is.

SO DON'T TRY TO BE GOOD AND DON'T TRY TO BE RIGHT. Don't try to avoid the wrong, and don't try to avoid the bad -- because then your life will lose all salt; you will become tasteless. Saints are tasteless -- at least so-called saints. A real saint has tremendous contradictions in him; he is paradoxical. He is both sweet and bitter. He is as dark as the darkest night and as full of light as the noontime. He's simple like a child. You can almost call him a fool. That's what Saint Francis used to call himself -- and he is as wise as there is the possibility to be.

In the Old Testament there is a saying: THE WISEMAN, THE PERFECT MAN, IS AS CUNNING AS THE SNAKE AND AS INNOCENT AS THE DOVE. This is the contradiction -- as innocent as the dove and as cunning, sly, as the snake -- but both meet, and in that meeting both change their qualities; in that meeting both negate each other. WHEN BOTH THE PLUS AND MINUS COME TOGETHER, they negate each other. And out of that negation, a zero experience is born. When God and devil meet, they negate each other; they are equal forces. And when they are negative, you are empty. That emptiness is absolute; it knows no limit, it is immeasurable. And in that emptiness is what in the East we have called the witness, the witnessing consciousness.

My whole effort here is to help you to become that emptiness. So I am not worried about going wrong. SOMETIMES IT IS GOOD TO GO WRONG. It is very good to go astray sometimes. It is not always good to remain good, so don't be worried about that. It is as it should be. NATURE TAKES ITS OWN COURSE. Simply remain with the moment. Live the moment with your total being involved in it, committed to it, absorbed in it. Become drunk with the moment, and then whatsoever happens will be good. Even if it is not good, it will be good. At least eventually it will prove to be good. EVEN IF YOU GO WRONG SOMETIMES, finally you will find that that was also part of being right. It was needed. Life is really a mystery, and the mystery is because of this paradox....

THIS IS HOW IT GOES -- exploding, imploding, exhaling, inhaling. This is how it goes -- happiness, unhappiness; good and bad, right and wrong. So don't be worried about it. SIMPLY TRUST LIFE. I teach you trust -- trust in life! So if sometimes life leads you into some wrong ways, go. Don't resist that moment; just go totally. So whatsoever life wants you to learn from that experience is learned, and you can come out again."

Royal Raymond Rife had a Cure for Cancer in the 1930s.

Royal Raymond Rife was, perhaps, the greatest medical scientist of the twentieth century and yet, sadly, very few people have ever heard of him. He died of alcoholism in obscurity in 1971. Royal Rife was the inventor of the "Dark Field Microscope" and this he did in the 1920s. His "Universal Microscope", magnified objects 60,000 times, and this made him the first man in history to view a living virus. Ironically most of today's scientists using powerful electron microscopes are viewing dead bio-organisms, because the powerful electric field of their equipment kills the virus. Rife, a brilliant inventor was the "Father of Electronic Medicine", which he used very successfully to treat cancer patients in his clinic in San Diego in the 1930s.He suggested cancer was a virus and was able to facilitate cures by killing the virus with an electronic frequency generator.
Rife realized that everything on the planet has a vibrational frequency. The wall that surounds the room in which you sit, is a) not solid and b) all the atoms that go to make up thast seeming solid wall are vibrating at a frequency or more precisely a frequency span.Thanks to his microscope, he was able to culture a variety of pathogens and then subject them to the frquencies generated by his beam.This killed the pathogens. The result was very successful according to Barry Lynes who wrote a book about Rife in the 1980s. It seems that many people had their cancers turned around by the system. He also claimed cancer was a virus and his "zapper" generated a frequency that killed the virus. The late Dr. Hulda Clarke took this a little further in the 1990s. She too subscribed to the frequency theory, but did not attribute cause to just one virus, but a series of factors including candida and other parasite that seemed to depend on ethyl-alcohol for their food source. The CoRe system is able to generate all the frequencies suggested by Rife and Clarke with interesting results.
The CoRe can be used to create the frequencies and then transmit them to the client by means of light or vibration. We did some work on this several years ago, when the frequency information was transmitted to the body by means of tapping on the acupoints a la EFT. The results were very satisfying. The CoRe system is now able to take this even fuirther, which promises to be exciting. Of course no one treatment technique is the answer in the healing of any malady. We can kill the pathogens on one hand, but it is also necesary to work on nutrition, stress control, emotional imblance and many other factors that go to make-up the whole of the disease state. The whole does comprise mind, body and spirit and let's never forget that!

Rife found, as we see with increasing frequency today, that toxins assault the body, and it seems the number of these are rising at an alarming rate. This gives some explantion to the almost epicdemic rise in cancer today. These poisons cannot be excreted effectively; as they build up they cause electrolyte imbalances within the cells. This accumulation prevents the absorbtion of nutrients and effectively gets rid of waste. Iranian Doctor F. Batmanghelidj in his book: "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" stresses the problem is further aggravated because most people drink far too little water. Thus dehydration and toxicity are the root cause of most of the congestive and degenerative diseases prevalent today.

I am presently writing an article on protecting the liver, which will appear here, soon. But having focused on the destructive power of chemtrails and the recent Bilderberger meeting in Sitges, Spain, I feel I have been doing exactly what this piece says not to do. When this snippet of wisdom from Neville came to my attention, it was like a slap in the face. I think it is very important and fits in perfectly with what Esther Hicks (Abraham) and Ho'oponopono have always said. Oh, it is so easy to forget and the ego has such a quirky knack on focusing on all that is the worst.

If the world is a place of destruction and death, then it is we who have created it. Isn't it time we changed this? We change the outside by changing the inside. In other words we can change our reality by changing our thoughts. This is difficult in a world where the media and public thinking invariably look only to the negative. The result is left brain/right brain imbalance. The brain has two hemispheres the right and the left. The left hemisphere analyses, thinks, plots, plans and imagines it works in a world of linear logic. The right hemisphere is the creative brain. It does not think in such a straight line. It is holistic in its thinking; so many other factors come in to play. To get out of the left brain analytical mode is really a whiff of fresh air. You can feel the tension and pressure of the layers of fear that manipulate the planet, lift at once. The nine-gamut technique which comes from kinesiology, will be familiar to all those who have studied the Meridian Therapies (EFT, TAT, AMBIT, TFT etc) If you are unfamiliar with the procedure here is what you do.
• Take your hand and make a fist
• Find the gap between the knuckle of the little finger and that of the ring finger.
• Tap in that gap with two fingers continuously as you……
• Close your eyes
• Open your eyes
• Look down to the left without moving your head
• Look down to the right without moving your head
• Roll your eyes in a complete circle in a clockwise direction
• Repeat in an anti-clockwise motion
• Hum the first four bars of “Happy Birthday”
• Count up to 5 (aloud)
• Hum “Happy Birthday” again.
Crazy isn’t it? Not, not really because eyes movements have a direct correlation to the brain. By doing this exercise you use all of what are called the modalities in NLP. These are visual, auditory, kinesthetic and auditory digital. The counting and the humming bring in left and right hemisphere This balances the two brain hemispheres. Remember, if you are left brain dominant, you are not using the right brain. This is a bit like going into the boxing ring with one hand tied behind your back. So, if you are focusing on a negative scenario, break the pattern as soon as you become aware by tapping out the nine gamut sequence. When you have finished, check out how you feel. Is there a difference?

"A thought acted upon is an imaginal act. Think (imagine) a horrible earthquake and God will give it to you. Imagine (think of) a war and God will provide that, too. Imagine peace and you will have it. God will give you health if you will but imagine being healthy. Imagine success and you will have it. The moment you think, you are feeding your imagination, which is a person. I use the word person deliberately, for you are a person. You are the mask God is now wearing, for God became you that you may become God".

The Power of the Kidney Cleanse

Here on Koh Samui there are many, many detox centers. The trend started in the early 1990s when Guy and Toi Hopkins first opened their Spa Resort in Lamai. This has attracted visitors for the last almost 20 years and given rise to a string of other Resorts following on the same or a similar path.
All detox programs seem to stress the liver flush but nobody speaks much about the kidney cleanse. The late Dr. Hulda Clarke always insisted that you cleanse the kidneys before the liver. Thus the Health Ambit Consultancy would stress the importance of completing a thorough kidney cleanse before embarking on any fasting or detox program. Hulda Clark suggested a combination of herbs for this cleanse, sometimes these are hard to get, so Health Ambit Consultancy suggests an easier version.
Why do the kidneys need cleansing? Daily they filter something in the region of 200 ltres of blood. The impurities are extracted and excreted in approximately two litres of urine.
In clinical practice blood pressure issues abound. There are very many reasons for this. The traditional medical practice is to medicate, but it seems to the Health Ambit Consultancy that the most intelligent course of action is to ask the question why? Before resorting to something that has become a knee jerk reaction. It seems that far too many women have extremely low blood pressure and far too many men have high blood pressure. One of the first places to look for blood pressure issues is the kidneys. To balance and cleanse the kidneys is easy to do and it just might bring the blood pressure down.
Kidneys produce hormones and balance the pH of the blood. Because of poor diet and overstress many people have a blood pH which is too acid. The parameters here are very slim. Blood has to have a pH between 7.36 and 7.45. If you go too far to the higher end you are too alkaline and too far to the lower end you are far too acid. Acidosis is a condition that is very serious. Blood becomes too acid when we eat or drink too many acid forming foods. For instance sugar, most grains, animal protein, coffee and alcohol are all acid forming. It is important we reduce the acid forming substances to 20% or the diet and increase the alkaline creating nutrition to 80%. This is done by increasing the serving size of fruit and vegetables in the diet. Negative emotions make us acid, too. It’s a good idea, then, to work to overcome these by utilizing some of the very powerful emotional clearing tools like EFT and EMDR that are out there.
Many people hold onto water. This causes swelling or edema which can be in the lungs, the arms, the legs and even the abdomen. If somebody is fluid retentive it is a very good idea to look to the kidneys, first. To overcome edema we need to strengthen the kidneys. Taking a diuretic does not strengthen the kidneys.
Thus Health Ambit Consultancy suggest that if any of the above mentioned conditions are present or before undertaking a fast or detox, a kidney cleanse is the first step in the process.
Parsley, the green and very common herb is an ideal kidney cleanser. Coriander is very similar. To make a cleansing drink, take 4 bunches and bring to the boil in one liter of fresh spring or bottled water. Allow the mixture to boil for three minutes. Then allow the fluid to cool before bottling it. Drink half a cup first thing every morning for four weeks. You will have to re-make the mixture as you go. Be sure to refrigerate it, but even so the shelf life will only be three or four days before the drink goes bad.
Drinking parsley juice will allow the kidneys to drain of salts and other toxins and it makes an ideal beginning to any fasting program. Once you have worked on the kidneys you can then give attention to the liver but the kidneys take precedence.

Red Alert: Insider Study on Cell Phone Safety Seriously Flawed

Today's blog comes thanks to Dr. Joe Mercola.I feel that this is a very important and yet ignored topic. Daily I see people with cell phones plugged to their ears, who are totally oblivious of the dangers involved. Yes, these phones are wonderful devices but they ned to be used wisely and with a great deal of caution.
"The Interphone Study Group did finally acknowledge the increased risk of brain cancer among long-term, heavy users of cell phones. However, the International EMF Collaborative argues that the study still seriously underestimated the brain cancer risk".

"They found 11 key design flaws -- for example, individuals using cordless phones but not cell phones were considered 'unexposed' for purposes of the Interphone analysis, though exposed to the same radiation."

According to Electromagnetic Health, other issues with the Interphone study include:

* Results were only provided for brain cancers (gliomas) and meningiomas, but not tumors within the 20 percent of the brain's volume irradiated by cell phones
* Risk was not broken down by gender, which may have obfuscated even higher risk of meningiomas in women
* The 5-year old results are woefully inadequate as a gauge of risk today, as adults and children now speak on cell phones many hours a day compared to only 2 to 2 ½ hours a month at that time

Eileen O'Connor, Director of the Radiation Research Trust and member of the International EMF Collaborative, says:

"Four billion people own mobile phones worldwide, many of those users are children. Responsible governments must advocate for public transparency of risks so that an informed public may have more options to exercise precaution".

Health Ambit Consultancy reports: “Ted’s Tinnitus Disappears in Thailand.”

Health Ambit Consultancy is able to report how a ninety-minute session with Ted (not his real name) worked with EFT to overcome the strong guilt feelings that had been plaguing him as a result of what he described as “a trumped up sexual harassment charge”. Approximately 10 months previously Ted had been accused by a former employee of sexual harassment in the workplace. Although the matter never got to Court he felt his reputation had been besmirched by the charges. Moreover he felt sad and guilty about the situation. Although he wanted to start a deep and close intimate relationship as he felt lonely he had been feeling uncomfortable about going out and meeting women He believed his reputation would simply invite rejection. EFT had done a good job in quashing his disempowering beliefs around the issue and I felt the session was about to reach a successful conclusion, when he turned and told the consultant how he suffered from tinnitus. Actually he had been suffering from what he described as “a whistling in the years” for the past ten years. This disclosure was a surprise! Working largely in an environment where people come to fast and de-tox on specific programs that average approximately one week in duration time, therefore, is very much of the essence. Usually it is not possible to tell clients “to come back next week” because by that time they will most likely have returned home; generally situated many thousands of miles away.
We asked Ted to give a SUDS for this tinnitus, and he said the whistling was generally worse in the right ear to which he attributed an eight and a possible 7 for the left ear. Time was rapidly running out but it was decided to give him another 15 minutes to resolve the issue. If we had no result in that time, we would just have to let it go and suggest he go to see a suitably qualified EFT practitioner when he returned to his native country.
We started with a very straightforward set-up; “Although I have this whistling in my ears. I accept and approve of myself.” The reminder phrase was “whistling in the ears”. By this time Ted was familiar with the EFT tapping points so he was encouraged to tap on himself whilst the therapist tapped along with him. When we reached the Collar Bone point we asked him “What does this whistling remind you of?” He paused for a moment and replied “the break-up of my marriage!” Next, a second round of EFT was initiated using the EFT short cut process and we asked him how long ago the marriage had broken up? He said they had separated eleven years previously. As we continued tapping we enquired “how did the whistling in the ears remind him of his marriage break-up?” Again he pondered, so it was decided to go onto the hand points. He started to explain, as he tapped the finger points that at the time he had been very pre-occupied with his business and felt he had started to let his home life drift. His wife began complaining about his pre-occupation with work, but he ignored her, feeling that the business difficulties would soon be resolved and they could return to how things were before. On this occasion we took the SUDs again as we finished tapping on the little finger. He said he came up with a 4 for the right ear and a 3 for the left. On enquiring how he felt about the situation as he looked back from now. He admitted feeling “sad” and “guilty”. He felt he had thrown away a relationship and he regretted that because now he was all alone. With the new aspects, came a new set-up and a new SUDs. The set-up was “Even though I feel sad and guilty about what happened I am now open to new possibilities because I deserve to be happy.” The SUDs had meanwhile increased to a 6. As we began tapping on the face points he seemed to become visibly upset, which suggested the SUDs had gone even higher. We kept urging him to repeat the reminder phrase “sad”, that is until we reached the Under Arm point. Here he sighed and visibly relaxed. However, he was urged to move on to the UB point. This marks the end of the liver meridian.
This seemed a good place to stop. His SUDs level and the noise had completely disappeared in the left ear and was a lowly 1 in the right. This was astounding, as it didn’t really seem possible to have been able to make such inroads into the problem in only 15 minutes. In Health Ambit Consultancy’s experience tinnitus can be difficult to treat and can eat into several sessions without resolution. However, there appeared to be a definite connection between the tinnitus, the more distant marriage break-up and the more recent sexual harassment accusation. There was insufficient time to explore this connection, so we tried a 9 Gamut procedure in the hope that would completely flatten the SUDs in the right ear. And sure enough that was the case.
Ted stayed with us at the Resort for another couple of days. He did not return for a further session but when asked “how’s the whistling? He retorted reassuredly,” completely gone!” This goes to show what a powerful tool we have in EFT! In Health Ambit Consultancy’s experience it has straightened fingers, fixed numerous backs, removed the fear of heights, seen stubborn necks stop hurting and headaches vanish, all in matter of minutes. Thanks so much EFT!

."YOGA & DETOX” A Good Way to Go says Health Ambit Consultancy.

Koh Samui is well known for being a haven for wellness with its plethora of resorts focusing on detox & rejuvenating program to cleanse and revitalize oneself. Many people think that to cleanse their bodies they need to go through fasting programs, a period of colon cleansing or taking supplements or detox shakes. However, our bodies actually have an in-built natural cleaning process and to aid that process a simple regular yoga practice can be done.

Yoga presents one of the best ways to detoxify your body as the key principle of yoga is working with your breath, and one of the ways to detoxify your body is to simply breathe. Yoga postures aid in detoxification by stretching & loosening muscles and joints which flush out “bad” blood and toxins whilst bringing a fresh supply of oxygenated blood enriched with nutrients. The practice of yoga also helps people feel better emotionally, physically and mentally thus promoting a positive flow of energy within that helps detox the body. Yoga breathing exercises known as Pranayama also help to release stored up toxins from the respiratory system. Styles of yoga such as Hot and Hot Flow Yoga involving Hatha Yoga postures done in a room heated to a temperature of 35 – 37 degrees are especially beneficial for detox. The heat-loss process at work during a hot yoga practice is stimulating and cleansing on many levels. The increase blood flow during a class speeds up the metabolic process of vital organs, and glands, mobilizing toxins for elimination. Many toxins are encapsulated in fat and stored in the body. Heat stimulates fat receptors, activating fat stores and facilitating fat loss and releasing these fat-soluble toxins. Naturally in a hot yoga class, one would sweat buckets and the skin being the largest organ in the body plays an important role in detoxifying through the process of sweating. In many traditions, inducing sweat for detoxification purposes is an ancient practice. Besides aiding in detox the heat has healing properties as it stimulates white blood cell production boosting one’s immune system and speeds up the healing of injuries. A regular hot or hot flow yoga class can certainly contribute in helping the body detox.

For those unable to stand long hours in the heat or can’t get access to a hot yoga class, some simple postures can help. Postures such as Bharadvajasana (Seated Side Twist), Lying Spinal Twist or Garudasana (eagle pose) that involve twists help squeeze out stale blood & when released help fresh blood flow in. Restorative poses such as Supta Baddha Konasana (Lying hero’s Pose), Viparita Karani
(Legs up the wall pose) & Child’s Pose that open up the chest, abdomen & back, help to massage the organs that detox the body such as the kidneys, liver & intestine. Breathing exercises such Kapalbhati breathing involving quick bursts of breath burns up toxins and stimulates the metabolic rate due to the rapid exchange of air in the lungs.

Yoga is not just limited to postures or breathing exercises, hand gestures or mudras are also part of a yoga practice and can also help in detoxifying the body. A simple mudra that can be done after a meal wherever you are is the “pushan mudra” which influences the energy currents that are responsible for absorbing and utilizing food as well as energies of elimination and detoxification. Sit comfortably with thumbs & index fingers touching, other fingers extended. Place back of palms on knees, close eyes, focus on your natural breath and relax for 1-2 minutes.

Wherever you are there is always a simple yoga posture, breathing exercise or hand gesture you can do to help in eliminating toxins from the body. However to reap the full benefits, a regular class will go a long way in helping your body detox itself.

World War II is Long Over — You Can Have Your Coconut Oil Again!

During World War II, the Japanese military occupied the Philippines, Thailand, Malaya and many South Pacific islands, where bloody battles were fought.
The once-plentiful supply of coconut oil was effectively cut off from the United States.
Although coconut oil had been popular both as a cooking oil and ingredient in numerous food products, the occupation continued to interrupt the supply for several long years as the war slowly dragged on.
Enter good old American ingenuity (in this case, not so good for your health).
Manufacturers began to develop alternative sources of cooking oils, and the polyunsaturated oils phase was born. By the time the war was over, there was a lot of money at stake in the promotion of these polyunsaturated vegetable oils.
By the end of the 1950’s, public opinion had turned totally against saturated fats like butter (and coconut oil). Saturated fats were blamed for raising cholesterol, and cholesterol was now viewed as the evil enemy, the culprit responsible for the steep rise in heart disease.
Butter, eggs and coconut oil were out.
The new vegetable oils were in... and erroneously touted as "heart-healthy."
Coconut oil continued to be demonized by the vegetable oil industry throughout the ensuing decades. Adding insult to injury, the soybean industry began to condemn the use of tropical oils, particularly coconut oil.
And I'm sure you realize the reason why — competition... and millions and millions of dollars.
Unfortunately, the tropical oil industry, centered in poorer nations like the Philippines and Indonesia, could not afford to counter the negative propaganda spread by rich American industrial conglomerates.
Science and good health took a back seat to profits, as they have on more than one occasion...
The Hidden Truth About Coconut Oil
The truth about coconut oil is obvious to anyone who has studied the health of those who live in traditional tropical cultures, where coconut has been a nutritious diet staple for thousands of years.
Back in the 1930’s, a dentist named Dr. Weston Price traveled throughout the South Pacific, examining traditional diets and their effect on dental and overall health. He found that those eating diets high in coconut products were healthy and trim, despite the high fat concentration in their diet.
Similarly, in 1981, researchers studied populations of two Polynesian atolls. Coconut was the chief source of caloric energy in both groups. The results, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, demonstrated that both populations exhibited positive vascular health. There was no evidence that the high saturated fat intake had a harmful effect in these populations.

Coconut Oil – Your Smart Alternative to Those Other Oils

So, now that you have heard the history behind coconut oil's unfortunate "fall from grace", you should also know today's good news: coconut oil is finally beginning to get the respect it deserves as a smart alternative to other oils.
The many benefits of coconut oil are finally reaching the mainstream.
Benefits like:
* Promoting your heart health
* Promoting weight loss when and if you need it
* Supporting your immune system health
* Supporting a healthy metabolism
* Providing you with an immediate energy source
* Helping to keep your skin healthy and youthful looking
* Supporting the proper functioning of your thyroid gland

"Coconut oil is transforming my health! Not only am I losing weight, but my skin, hair (damaged with spit ends), and nails (soft and brittle) are healthier. And it didn't take that long. I just put the coconut oil in fruit smoothies in the morning. Imagine what health improvements my body would have if I (and I will) increase my coconut oil intake to cooking with it!
"Also, my biggest health success with coconut oil has been the support it gives to my immune system. I feel less fatigued, I'm sleeping less, and feeling great! Thank you, Dr. Mercola! Bravo!"
-- J Newman from Monterey, CA
Dr Joe Mercola says:
"If you could peek inside my pantry, you would find two oils that I use in food preparation.
The first, extra-virgin olive oil, is a better monounsaturated fat. It works great as a salad dressing.
However, it is not the best oil to cook with. Due to its chemical structure, cooking makes it susceptible to oxidative damage.
And polyunsaturated fats, which include common vegetable oils such as corn, soy, safflower, sunflower and canola, are absolutely the worst oils to use in cooking. These omega-6 oils are highly susceptible to heat damage because of all the double bonds they have.
I strongly urge you to throw out those omega-6 vegetable oils in your cabinets. Why?
Reason #1: Most people believe that frying creates trans fats. That is not the major problem, in my opinion. Although some are created, they are relatively minor. There are FAR more toxic chemicals produced by frying omega-6 oils than trans fats.
Frying destroys the antioxidants in oils and as such oxidizes the oils. This causes cross-linking, cyclization, double-bond shifts, fragmentation and polymerization of oils that cause far more damage than trans fats.
Reason #2: They contribute to the overabundance of omega-6 fats in your diet, and the imbalance of the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. As you know from my extensive writing on this subject, I believe that excessive consumption of omega-6 fats contributes to many health concerns.
There is only one oil that is stable enough to resist heat-induced damage, while it also helps you promote heart health, maintain normal cholesterol levels and even supports weight loss — coconut oil."
Thank you Dr. Mercola for that sound advice!
