My Health Philosophy

I believe that in order to be successful in healing we must look at the problem holistically. In other words we work with the body, mind and spirit. It is all too convenient to simply treat the symptoms, but that is not healing. The symptoms are a bio-feedback communications device telling us that something is wrong. Taking a pill to persuade those symptoms to go away simply disguises the underlying causative problem and sooner or later it will manifest itself again. Often times it will mutate into something else. All illness demonstrates the system is out of balance or “dis-eased”. All illness is a cry for action because it tells us that something is wrong. It is a wake-up call. There is a lesson to be learned here. We need to learn the lesson and make the necessary adjustments and then move on! It is my job as a helath care professional to help you learn the lessons which enable you to move on!

There is also a priority to healing. This demonstrates there is a hierarchy to the importance of the presenting symptoms. Treat the problem by not addressing the top priority is a recipe for disaster. Thanks to Kinesiology we have a tool to access the priorities and we use that tool to work effectively to treat the underlying cause to the symptoms. If you consult for a digestive problem but the priority test reveals the most important element of the “dis-ease” is emotional, then it is the emotional component which has to be successfully managed first. If we start with the disturbance on the digestive level it is unlikely we will be able to heal the root cause of the issue. First we address the emotional priority and this might take care of the entire problem and it might not. Usually when we clear the top priority something else shows up underneath and that tells us on which level we must work next!

How can these techniques help you?

I work in one on one sessions and thanks to the telephone and Skype over distance to treat “dis-ease” at root level and thus eliminate it.

How do we do that?

* I heal causative symptoms by first identifying issues by means of Kinesiology or the CoRe Inergetix System. CoRe is a computerized scanning device that reveals areas in need of healing in a remarkable short space of time. You can read more about both approaches on the website.
* When we have identified the issues in need of treatment, I will treat where I can using an array of differing tools. These range from……
* The Meridian Energy techniques (EFT, TAT, AMBIT) and other emotional clearing techniques.
* I use diet and nutritional counselling using vitamin a mineral therapy.
* Homoeopathy.
* Long Distance Healing
* Kinesiology.
* Chakra and Meridian balancing
* Radionics
* Rife and Clark frequencies and much more.
* I will give recommendations for diet and exercise
* I will refer to body workers and other experts.

After our session I will submit a written report by e-mail, illustrating areas that need attention and what specifically to do about them. To keep you on track, I will also act as “Healing Coach” where we make contact be e-mail, telephone or Skype to insure you understand the recommendations and how best to put them into practice. You buy 65 minute time slots which you can take all at once or break up on a need to consult basis. This would mean you can avail of short calls designed to answer questions and give motivation to stay on track, or a longer session if necessary. People go for a series of expensive therapy sessions which usually necessitate lifestyle changes. Coaching like this helps you make these sometimes difficult changes more easily.

"The World Will Not End in 2012" By Carlos Barrios

I posted an article a few weeks ago which referred to the Mayan Prophecy that time as we know it will cease on the Equinox of 2012. I recently found this article which I would like to share with you: I believe it adds another dimension to the article I wrote.

""Carlos Barrios was born into a Spanish family on El Altiplano, the highlands of . His home was in Huehue tenango, also the dwelling place of the Maya Mam tribe. With other Maya and other indigenous tradition keepers, the Mam carry part of the old ways on Turtle Island ( North America ).

They are keepers of time, authorities on remarkable calendars that are ancient, elegant and relevant. Mr. Barrios is a historian, an anthropologist and investigator. After studying with traditional elders for 25 years since the age of 19, he has also became a Mayan Ajq'ij, a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide, Eagle Clan.

Years ago, along with his brother, Gerardo, Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars. He studied with many teachers. He says his brother Gerardo interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.

"Anthropologists visit the temple sites," Mr. Barrios says, "and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It's just their imagination... Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed. The indigenous have the calendars, and know how to accurately interpret it, not others.

The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya understand 17 different calendars, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years. The calendar that has steadily drawn global attention since 1987 is called the Tzolk'in or Cholq'ij.
Devised ages ago and based on the cycle of the Pleiades, it is still held as sacred. With the indigenous calendars, native people have kept track of important turning points in history.

For example, the day keepers who study the calendars identified an important day in the year One Reed, Ce Acatal, as it was called by the Mayans. That was the day when an important ancestor was prophesied to return, "coming like a butterfly." In the western calendar, the One Reed date correlates to Easter Sunday, April 21, 1519 the day that Hernando Cortez and his fleet of 11 Spanish galleons arrived from the East at what is today called Vera Cruz, .When the Spanish ships came toward shore, native people were waiting and watching to see how it would go. The billowing sails of the ships did indeed remind the scouts of butterflies skimming the ocean surface. In this manner was a new era initiated, an era they had anticipated through their calendars. The Maya termed the new era the Nine Bolomtikus, or nine Hells of 52 years each. As the nine cycles unfolded, land and freedom were taken from the native people. Disease and disrespect dominated.

What began with the arrival of Cortez, lasted until August 16, 1987 - a date many people recall as Harmonic Convergence. Millions of people took advantage of that date to make ceremony in sacred sites, praying for a smooth transition to a new era, the World of the Fifth Sun."

From that 1987 date until now, Mr. Barrios says, "We have been in a time when the right arm of the materialistic world is disappearing, slowly but inexorably. We are at the cusp of the era when peace begins, and people live in harmony with Mother Earth. We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth changes."All this, Mr .Barrios says, was foreseen via the simple, spiral mathematics of the Mayan calendars. "It will change," Mr. Barrios observes. "Everything will change." He said Mayan day keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. "It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator, and the earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years, the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world's spiritual traditions."Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration.

This process has already begun, Mr. Barrios suggested. "Change is accelerating now, and it will continue to accelerate." If the people of the earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without having destroyed too much of the Earth, Mr. Barrios said, "We will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way."

A Picture of the Road Ahead:

From his understanding of the Mayan tradition and the calendars, Mr. Barrios offered a picture of where we are at and what may lie on the road ahead. The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition.

"Humanity will continue," he contends, "but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions, are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action. Many powerful souls have reincarnated in this era, with a lot of power. This is true on both sides, the light and the dark.
A Call for Fusion: As he met with audiences in Santa Fe, Mr. Barrios told a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in . He said that one respected elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light. Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way.

Reflecting on this, Mr. Barrios explained: "We live in a world of polarity: day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance. Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want. They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy. They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012.On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group's understandings, are the key. There's a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus."

As Mr. Barrios sees it, "The dark side works to block fusion through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World , the materialism. They do not want it to change. They do not want fusion. They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level. The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It's too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to fusion, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun."

Mr. Barrios said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun: ether. The dictionary defines ether as the rarefied element of the Heavens. Ether is a medium. It permeates all space and transmits waves of energy in a wide range of frequencies, from cell phones to human auras.What is "ethereal" is related to the regions beyond earth: the Heavens. Ether, the element of the Fifth Sun, is celestial and lacking in material substance, but is no less real than wood, stone or flesh. "Within the context of ether there can be a fusion of the polarities," Mr .Barrios said. "No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted fusion.

But right now the realm of darkness is not interested in this. They are organized to block it. They seek to unbalance the Earth and its environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012. We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and fusion now, to confront the other side and preserve life, to be ready for this Moment in History."

Mr. Barrios told his audiences in Santa Fe that we are at a critical moment of world history. "We are disturbed," he said. "We can't play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard, but special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history."

Mr. Barrios offered a number of suggestions to help people walk in balance through the years ahead. "The prophesied changes are going to happen," he said "but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the earth. Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It's very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth.Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely. A lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have the mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots. We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything: people, plants, animals.

This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ether - the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work. One simple but effective prayer technique is to light a white or baby-blue colored candle. Think a moment in peace. Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace. We Have Work To Do." According to Mr. Barrios this is a crucially important moment for humanity, and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet. He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition. The Maya have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems.

"They know," he said, "that the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the destiny of the whole world. The greatest wisdom is in simplicity," ... . "Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way."

“Learn How to Alkalize your Body for Good Health!”

To determine acid alkaline balance we are confronted by the strange term pH levels. pH stands for “Potential Hydrogen”. It is all about hydrogen ion concentrations. When the level is increased the substance becomes more alkaline and when it decreases, more acidic. The range runs from 0-14. A reading of 7 which is supposed to correspond to water is neutral. Sadly not all water has a pH of 7, but that is another story!
The Human blood is slightly alkaline with a pH reading of between 7.35 and 7.45. Proteins in the diet break down to make strong acids. These include uric, sulphuric, phosphoric and nitric acid. Weak acids like citric acids have a different affect on the human body. Lemon juice is composed of citric acid. Lemons grow on trees and undergo a photosynthesis process. This means the lemon tree absorbs minerals from the earth and transports them to the fruit. The lemon juice breaks down to make carbonic acid which again breaks down to form carbon dioxide and water which are easily excreted from the kidneys. However, the minerals stay and these alkalize the system thus increasing the pH level of blood, urine and saliva. Drinking water does not always provide an alkaline medium. Often municipal supplies are treated sewerage which lack the minerals to reach the desired level of alkalinity or it is bottled water. Water is put in plastic bottles, which break down leaching phtlates into the liquid and making it unnecessarily acid. Phthalates are estrogen mimics and are often confused with PCBs. PCBs (PolyChlorinated Biphenyls). These were considered carcinogenic and supposedly banned in the 1970s. To overcome the problem of over acidic water, it always a good idea to add a slice of lemon or lime in order to alkalize it!
The problem is most people are overly acidic. One reason for this is excessive protein intake. These animal related proteins form strong acids and they steal minerals from the body as the acids need to be buffered to safely pass through the kidneys without damaging them. Sulphuric acid, for instance combines with calcium to complete the buffering process. The calcium comes from the bones, and so we see excessive acidity robs the body of these important minerals which have repercussions later in life. As a result the bones weaken and we encounter deficiency diseases like osteoporosis and consider it part of the aging process when in fact the problem is dietary. By the same token, as people age it seems they they shrink in stature. This happens as the acids in the body leach out vital minerals, unless of course the person realizes the hazard and focuses on eating foods that maintain the alkaline balance.
The dangers do not rest simply with an excess of animal products in the diet. Sugar, simple carbohydrates and saturated fats have the same affect. White sugar is not a food at all. In the refining process all goodness has been stripped from the long chains of glucose and the result is that the sugar in this form is difficult to absorb. These are alkaline foods but as the system cannot break them down effectively the digestion is interrupted and this leaves them in the intermediate acid state and not the desired alkaline one! The same thing applies to wheat and grains. It seems that gluten and some of the preservatives added to white flour make it very difficult to digest, so once more the conversion process does not complete itself and you are left with an acid forming food.
As they body becomes more and more stripped of minerals, it becomes more and more acid and reaches a stage where it simply can no longer heal itself! In this overly acid state it can no longer absorb the minerals and vitamins necessary to reverse its overacidity. At this point serious health issues come to make themselves apparent. The lowered pH creates hormone imbalances, cardiovascular discrepancy, weight gain and sometimes weight loss, bladder and kidney problems immune deficiencies, a buildup of free radicals that cause cellular destruction, a stressed liver, poor digestion, Candida and yeast infections as well as cancers and tumors. To put it bluntly an overly acidic system is a principal cause of disease. However, a low pH can be increased and the health hazards of over acidity reversed.
Cancer is on the rise and it seems 1 in 3 people are now plagued by this life threatening illness. All cancer patients are far too acid and they also lack oxygenation. This is one reason why a sensible exercise routine is so important. In the absence of oxygen, sugar ferments into lactic acid which intensifies the quandary.
So how do we reverse an overly high level of acidity in the body? A good idea would be to buy a digital pH meter. They are easily available from Garden Centers and aquarium suppliers and they are relatively cheap. You need to monitor urine and saliva levels. During the night your body goes through a breaking down, catabolic process. Acids from the previous day decompose; then they are stored in the bladder. The urine voided first thing in the morning is always acidic. Your pH meter will demonstrate this to you. However, as we move out of the catabolic cycle just before midday, the urine will start alkalizing. It should be giving a reading close to 7 at 2pm. If it is substantially below 6.8 you are too acid and need to take steps to reverse the issue. Make sure that you eat a diet that comprises 80% fresh vegetables and only 20% protein. This is in inverse proportion to the regular diet. Make certain you eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day. Cut out sugar and acid forming foods like fried potatoes and pasta. Stop buying things in packets, add lemon to your water and begin to work on those negative emotions that are poisoning your system. Learn about cosmetics and stop covering yourself in toxic petroleum products which are all far too acid. Stop cleaning your teeth with regular toothpaste, and use sea salt instead. By all means take a mineral supplement, but be sure the minerals themselves come from an organic source. This means they come via a pesticide free vegetable source. The body simply cannot absorb minerals from an inorganic source. Unfortunately you might have to forego some of the “goodies” in life. Coffee and alcohol are both powerful acid forming agents as are cigarettes. We do really have to ask ourselves the question, “what price do you pay for good health?"
Use your pH meter to monitor your progress and make changes so that your urine has a pH of above 6.8 come 2 o’clock in the afternoon. It will take a little effort, but you will feel substantially better when you discover a diet that puts your pH in the alkaline side of the equation and you come to realize good health is really priceless!.

Did Atlantis exist or is it a simply a Metaphysical Hoax?

There has been heated discussion for a very long time on whether or not the last civilization of Atlantis existed or not. Academics say there is no evidence to support the theory of a lost continent in the relatively recent geological past. The one who set the story in motion was the Greek Philosopher “Plato” who talked about a lost island lying west of the “Pillars of Hercules”, which was the contemporary name for Gibraltar. This mention appears in two of Plato’s “Discourses”, “Timaeus and the unfinished “Critias”.
“For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, and Asia to boot. For the ocean there was at that time navigable; for in front of the mouth which you Greeks call, as you say, 'the pillars of Heracles,' there lay an island which was larger than Libya and Asia together; and it was possible for the travelers of that time to cross from it to the other islands, and from the islands to the whole of the continent over against them which encompasses that veritable ocean. For all that we have here, lying within the mouth of which we speak, is evidently a haven having a narrow entrance; but that yonder is a real ocean, and the land surrounding it may most rightly be called, in the fullest and truest sense, a continent. Now in this island of Atlantis there existed a confederation of kings, of great and marvelous power, which held sway over all the island, and over many other islands also and parts of the continent.” These are the words Plato ascribes to Critias, one of the four characters in the discourse “Timaeus”.
It is interesting to note that Plato is able to speak of the Atlantic Ocean in 360 BC and that a continent lay to the other side of this sea, and what’s more travelers could cross that Ocean to the other side. Of course it is na├»ve to suppose that Columbus was the discoverer of the New World. Others had gone before him. The Norseman Leif Ericson is said to have crossed the Atlantic five hundred years before Columbus, whose fist exploratory voyage took place in 1492. OK but Plato is writing in 360BC, and that is some 1200 years before the Vikings took to their long boats and traversed the stormy Atlantic .The reference tells that the Greeks and before them the Egyptians had an inkling of the existence of the Atlantic and a Continent lying at the other side of this huge ocean. What’s more he says the Kings of this land “were of great and marvelous power”. He points out that they were warlike and their armies crossed over and occupied North Africa and Europe but were stopped by the might of the Athenians in the East. Was all of this a figment of Plato’s imagination or was it based on fact? Plato maintains the information came to light some two hundred years earlier when the Athenian architect and law giver Solon journeyed to the “Temple of Naith” in Seis. Seis located on the upper Nile was at the time in its heyday, was a centre of enlightenment and learning in ancient Egypt. The town has completely disappeared today, but is said to be the site of the grave of Osiris. In the Dialogue “Critias” TELLS OF HOW THE Greek Gods were all allotted lands to rule over. This curbed rivalry and kept feuds to a minimum. Poseidon, the God of the sea was given the island of Atlas or Atlantis. It was we are told, larger than Libya and Asia Minor and made the Atlantic navigable.
The Dialogue also recounts how this Continent was overcome by “earthquakes and floods of extraordinary violence, and in a single dreadful day and night all your (Athenian) fighting men were swallowed up by the earth and the island of Atlantis was similarly swallowed by the sea and vanished.”
Atlantis was comparatively ignored until quite recently, the sleeping prophet Edgar Cayce first mentions it in one of his readings in 1923, but the whole idea poses some interesting questions. There are outcrops of what might once have been mountains in the Atlantic Ocean. Look at Madeira, the Canaries and the Azores to the East and the Bermuda and the Bahamas to the west. The Egyptians had an advanced civilization but so did the Mayans in Mexico. The Mayans and the Egyptians had a lot in common. For a beginning they both worshipped the sun. The Egyptian Sun God Ra had a huge influence on the peoples on the Nile. The Mayans developed a great respect for the sun, too. They realized that if the sun stopped shining, their life would cease. Both societies were adept at building large pyramid structures which would be feats of engineering today, never mind several thousand years ago. If there had been a very convenient quasi land bridge between Africa and the North America continent it would have been relatively easy for this interchange of ideas and people to take place. Did this Atlantean confederation of Kings of “Great and marvelous power” also have great and marvelous knowledge which could have been the catalyst for the rise of Egypt and the Mayan civilizations?
They were hugely advanced in thinking and skill forms because they certainly had learning far ahead of their time. The Mayan preoccupation with the Sun led to a sophisticated awareness of its power. Their years and centuries were closely interwoven with solar activity like sunspots and the approximate eleven year cycles between the highs and lows of these. The Mayans contrary to conventional thinking were skilled mathematicians and saw that the planet went through 4000 year cycles. It appears we are in the fifth of these cycles at the moment. They also made a prophecy for the solstice of 2012, where time as they knew it would come to an end. The Mayans themselves are fairly precise in what they expect to happen in 2012. This prediction is shown at the end of the rather poor movie “2012”. But who is to know what the truth is? Maybe the whole thing is a fiction dreamed up by Plato to elucidate the perfect society in one of his dialogues which takes the form of a debate. However, we do know the Mayans existed, as their buildings are there for all to see in wonderful cities like Chichen Itza in the Yucatan. Can they trace their antecedants back to Atlantis? The big question however, is, what do you think is going to happen in 2012?
