GIVNG MY DOG CASTOR OIL AND PINE OIL / TURPENTINE

We have a 8 pound Chihuahua that has some parasite issues. One clear sign is that around the New and Full Moon I sometimes catch her rubbing her butt, after eating, on the grass. Lovely. Better there than on the furniture. Anyway, besides all the other things we do to help her, I have been recently giving her 5 drops of Turpentine in 1/8 tsp of sugar daily. It was originally suggested to me that I put it in her food. I went with my instincts and decided to use sugar instead. This protocol has seemed to be very helpful in diminishing her symptoms. The other application that helped is applying a few drops on her gums with a cotton swab. I was doing this because they looked inflamed. I stopped the sugar dose when applying it to the gums. Lessening  daily usage is the plan. Maybe amping it up before both Moon Cycles.

CASTOR OIL

When we were at a frustration point with her progress, we gave her a 1/4 tsp of Castor Oil in a tiny bit of food. That did initiate a big clean out. There was definitely some parasitic material evacuated in her bowel. Gelatinous, stringy stuff at the tail end of a very large movement. People who have dogs and kids often want to hear these kind of details. Most are use to poop talk. It is a pretty yucky visual. I gave this dose to her about two or three hours before going out on her morning walk on an empty stomach. Just a warning: giving a dog Castor Oil on its own can cause them to gag because it is so viscous in nature. There is not a whole lot of information on Castor Oil for dogs, but there is a bit.

I have only seen improvements from the use of Pine Oil / Turpentine and Castor Oil with our Chihuahua. Also, she was never a big barker, nervously anxious, but since giving her these two substances she is even less so. We have had workers in the house. The noise they make can get loud and she hardly makes a sound. This is big.

BEST WISHES IN THE NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!

BENEFICIAL BANK: PARASITE FREE BANKING

PARASITIC BANKING MAKES MONEY OFF THE BACKS OF OTHERS.THE FOCUS IS ON  PROFIT. THE RETURN FOR THEIR “ORDINARY” CUSTOMERS IS LESS THAN MINIMAL

This is not a description of Beneficial Bank. Beneficial  is a bank that has a practical and philanthropic approach to banking. This institution helps educate their users. They promote understanding of finance for those who want to learn. Beneficial reinvests back into the community. Tom Steyer and his accomplished wife Kat Taylor are the founders. Yes, the same Tom Steyer of NextGen. The same Tom Steyer that has teamed with Michael Bloomberg and Hank Paulson to create Risky Business – The Paulson Institute.

Reinvesting in our communities and acknowledging climate change is the way of the future if we are going to not only survive,  but flourish. Reinvesting in our communities should be the way of the present, or there will not be much of a future for humankind.

Banks, corporations, businesses of all kinds that are making money in a way that DOES  create a better world is no longer a “tree hugger” concept. It is necessary for the survival of our planet and those that inhabit it. Anyway, what is wrong with being a tree hugger, anyway? Trees need our help. The whole planet does. Also, if you are using the term “tree hugger” in a disparaging way, consider not using it at all.

It is sadly curious to me how many people I have met through this blog who are interested in healing themselves, but  do not understand the importance of a cleaner environment. They do not believe there is Global Warming. I guess they are afraid, and just can not come to terms with what all of this means for themselves and their own tribe / family.

If you are not well, but doing something about it by confronting your own health issues in a way that contributes to the health of this planet,  you ARE creating change. Contemplate taking it a step further and look at the bigger picture. How and where is your money invested? If you are not well enough at this time to take action, just put this idea on the back burner, and come back to it when you are able.

As a current patient of Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD, I can testify that she has a broad understanding of how our decisions concerning where we are invested, in all areas of our lives, effects our health.

Thank you for your consideration. Thanks for reading.

PARASITES: HAVE A MERRIER- LESS COMBATIVE CHRISTMAS, HANUKAH AND NEW YEARS CELEBRATION

SOUND TOO EASY?  MAYBE WITH THE RIGHT INTENTIONS IT COULD BE…

If you have or have not taken note, there are favorite spices and scents that are associated with Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, Allspice and Pine are just a few. These are often used in potpourri, baking, cooking and beverages. I did a bit of research after reading the ingredients in an herbal concoction I am taking, and found that these and many other spices have properties that have a disarming effect on parasites. One notable aspect is that they reduce combative behavior. Why? Well, when people have health problems their Immune Systems are weak ant that means they are more vulnerable to all types of infections, bacteria, allergies. This all adds up to our energy being drained, poor health, also know as  having Parasites. Feeling crappy can lead to being more combative. It can also lead to someone being a victim to that kind of behavior. Depending on where you look there is specific information that mentions some of these spices, and how they help nullify the effects of Parasites.

PORK, CLOVES AND THOSE BUGGERS

One well known example of  the use of an Anti Parasitic spice is inserting Cloves into a ham before baking. Of course, most people put brown sugar and pineapple all over the ham, too. Not sure if that helps to nix the effects of the Cloves anti parasitic properties. They might since sugar is something that feeds these  problems. Also,  Pork is pretty well know for its association to trichinosis. Marinating and seasoning pork with herbs, and cooking it well is something that is important to do. Cloves are a well known spice to use on Pork, but I have a feeling most people do not know the reason they are using it.

MAYBE IF  LESS COMBATIVE PEOPLE ARE LESS EASILY TRIGGERED,  THE ONES THAT MORE EASILY GO OFF THE RAILS WON’T HAVE ANYONE TO SPAR WITH? WE ALL PLAY OUR PART IN THESE HOLIDAY GET-TOGETHERS.

If you are expecting family or friends over this holiday, or anytime, these “holiday”  spices smell great and  can have a positive effect on those that  are around them. Hopefully the most combative of your guests have a good sense of smell, but if not adding them to cider or some other beverage is another way to dose people. Dose in the most positive sense of course. Quite unfortunately, some of the people who could be helped by these spices truly dislike them. The upside is that the rest of the guests will be less apt to take the bait when the more combative guests / family / friends try to incite something. Talking about politics, or other heated issues is something that can really start an emotional wildfire.

About six months ago, I started using clove and cinnamon essential oils in the cleaning solutions I make. Very easy. Just reverse osmosis water, organic type soap [7th Generation] is one brand – and the oils. I enjoy the scents so much that it makes the cleaning much more enjoyable. I find these scents very uplifting,

There are other spices that are helpful. Looking at the ones that are used in countries where the climate is more extreme and the populations are high can lead to some personal and cultural insights. It can help us understand why people have traditionally seasoned their foods the way they do. India is one example. Unfortunately, life is more complicated today. There are so many other industrial strength environmental – exogeneous factors and influences. Nonetheless, the knowledge of what these spices and herbs do is invaluable. The world is getting smaller,  and this understanding  of other cultures and their use of spices and herbs is needed more than ever.

Happy Research and Holidays!

THE HEALING GIFT OF SELF EMPATHY DR.JENNIFER DANIELS, MD

HARD TO GIVE TO OTHERS WHAT WE CAN NOT GIVE TO OURSELVES

In my favorite scenario I would receive, from the majority of people I know and meet, the accepting attitude I give others concerning how they choose to deal with their health challenges. My choices are commonly disparaged by others, and it has been made very clear to me that challenging Western Medicine choices is a big no – no. Questioning one having a mastectomy  as a preventative measure, or a hip replacement as the only action to take, can be equated to taking a sledge hammer to a National Monument. So, for me, traveling on this road of “Alternative Healing”for decades has often felt quite lonely. I do have a small network of support, of which I am very grateful, of which I need to focus more upon. Some days are much easier than others.

R E S P E C T – JUST A LITTLE BIT

As I have said in other posts, I have more empathy for others and why they choose  Traditional Medicine now than ever before. I feel this way even though what Traditional Medicine calls preventive care is not my choice. The partnership that is involved in a completely Holistic Approach to healing means a great deal of self responsibility and effort on the part of the patient. A whole lot of time effort and preparation. Most importantly is having confidence in the human body, and the ability to heal when given the right tools. So, no matter who is advising me, I have found the true owness is on me in order to heal. This responsible, highly interactive healing relationship is contrary to the Western Medicine Approach that the doctor is going to fix us. I am not talking about situations that involve gun shot wounds, etcetera. I am talking about the every day visits where patients come in for a check – up. Similar to a car, and dutifully take their meds.

IT’S ALL IN OUR GENES? NOT SO FAST…

Then there is the misconception that gets many people in trouble. We are often led to believe that if a person has a  high quality “model”- good genes – or appear as they do, lots of money, have the right religious faith, or are just  plain lucky  they can eat and drink as they please until they just can’t any longer. There once was a time when there were more people who could squeeze by into their much later years without the help of medications. This is quite rare today.  Some believe that their fate depends greatly on these variables, and without them we just accept what we are “given”. Some generalizations here, but hopefully you get the gist.

I have done several types of healing protocols, many of which I have written about in this blog forum. A little over a year ago, I got to a point where what I was doing began to feel like an endless road of irritation. I was not healing. To be clear, I am grateful for all that I have done. From Macro to Raw Foods. From Juice Feasting to Juice Fasting. From the most recent past from The Unique Healing Program to the Kalcker / Rivera Program. All these protocols, and there were many others, surely kept me from becoming more ill at an earlier age. Unfortunately, I hit a wall that played out like the film Groundhog Day. The same thing over and over again with no improvement, and some signs of decline.

CLEANSING AND REBUILDING: FINDING THAT BALANCE

Fortunately, a that time when certain symptoms of mine were not improving, and the actions I was taking were not yielding the results I wanted and deserved, I met Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD. Just to be clear, I do believe there are health practitioners, other than Dr. Daniels, that help people.  I am sure of that. So, please understand that I am not saying Dr. Daniels is for everyone. No one is. What I am saying is that if you have hit a wall and that wall is shaky, get some help. Consider getting help from a person who is constantly increasing their knowledge. Practicing what they teach through self experimentation and research. These things are key. That type of person, in my experience, is  NOT common within the world of people that advise others concerning their health and sickness situations. Take some time to find what is right for you, and use your heart as well as your brain.

I need to practice giving myself the gift of empathy every day. It is hard when I am feeling frustrated at the process of healing. A process that requests patience, a virtue that becomes easier to summon up with an improved state of health.

DEFENSIVE BEHAVIOR & POOR HEALTH AUTO IMMUNE ILLNESS

IS HOW WE SEE THE WORLD AROUND US A REFLECTION OF OUR OWN BIO TERRAIN?

My observation is that people who have an internal environment that is a welcoming home to pathogens – parasitic infections often view the world, their world, as a unsafe and threatening place. These people have weak immune systems and are often highly reactive. They very often want to impose their will on others in order to feel in control. Many do this so they can feel safe and protected. This feeling of being unsafe has become a vocal part of a large segment of those living in some democratic populations today. I am not going to speak for the rest of the world. Are these people who want to control everything the greater part of most social democracies today?  I don’t know, but sometimes it feels that way. These  people seem combative and fearful. They get a whole lot of media coverage. They are loud. They justify the argument for medications, and many of them probably are medicated. Considering their behavior, it is frightening to imagine how they would be without their meds.

DRUG FREE? NOT SO FAST…

What I have personally experienced in my own healing process has lead me to realize that a good percentage of people with a 9-5 schedule need Western Medical Protocol. Western Medicine, can help to suppress symptoms, at least for awhile. This enables people to hold it all together, to maintain the status quo. It is often damn hard to ride out feeling unwell when taking a Holistic Approach to healing.This is especially true if a person has a volatile health situation at hand. I have gained more compassion for people and their decisions, if they are their own decisions, to medicate their symptoms in order to function, and move on. All children, some informed and elderly have these decisions made for them, as do many others. At the present time an overly medicated society, and what it means for the future of the  world, is being played out in the worldwide daily news cycle. It is not pretty.

FEELING ATTACKED AND UNSAFE

Please consider this:  Poor health and serious illness is, or eventually becomes, a by- product of a weak immune system. Having an organ, such as a Gallbladder,  removed helps to open the door for a weakened response to pathogens. I use Gallbladder removal as an example because it is a very common surgery today. A subject onto itself. Anyway, with continued exposure to environmental and other toxins [the list is endless], a person is very apt to project their physical condition onto the outer world. Why? If a person does not feel safe in their own body it is hard to feel safe in the world. Not feeling safe has become  a way of thinking and being. For many, feeling unsafe composes the fabric of daily life. This is greatly due to the degradation of the environmental health of our planet.

WAR HAS SO MANY MEANINGS

Exposure to toxic substances is definitively displayed in the behavior of a growing number of  people who are directly exposed the repercussion of war. Chemical warfare and the use of depleted uranium [and many other chemical / toxic substances] has greatly contributed to the very disturbing behavior that we see among those that are barraged daily with these poisons. In our own country, the US Military are prime examples of this phenomenon. A growing number of military men and women unwittingly fall prey to depressed, anti social, suicidal and other violent behavior. At worst, their behavior is similar to that they are trained to defend against. Our military men and women, and their families deserve so much better. We all do.

A BOTTOM LINE HYPOTHESIS

The more inflamed and infected with slow burning, or not so slow burning pathogens a person is, the more they are apt to respond to the world in a defensive way. Defensiveness is a  response that is due to  and a reflection of of an unhealthy physical condition. Knee jerk defensiveness is the world I see being projected back to me in the present world news cycle. What makes some people feel safe, such as more armaments, more military, the idea of building walls and not bridges, does not make me feel more safe.

As a person who does feels unsafe at times, I know this is. at the root, a reflection of my inner terrain. From what I understand, the Mayan Civilization elders are said to believe that there are no safe places, there are only safe people. I am not sure exactly what that means, but it is something to ponder.

There are a number of ways to help heal in a world that is constantly being bombarded with contaminants in our air, water and earth. These are toxic substances, most of which we can not see. Presently, I am finding help from Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD. There are a number of other protocols, that I know of and have been helped by. I have written about some of them in past blog posts. If you have the time, go back and look at what I have written. Hopefully, there may be some information there that may be of help to you.

DO YOU HAVE AN INGUINAL HERNIA?

I THOUGHT I DID, BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE AN ABSCESS

Post Script: This post got mistakenly posted before it was complete. I will write more in the near future. Despite that it is not complete, I have decided to keep the post up anyway.

My story is not one I really want to share  for a number of reasons, but I decided to do so anyway. Hopefully, what I write here may help someone else.

There was a time when I looked for information on how to heal a hernia.Over the years I have found very little that was helpful. Almost nothing. My experience is not one that I will probably be able to tell in great detail. One major reason is that there are so many parts to this puzzle that I have not been able to connect together yet. Also, it has been a very painful experience both physically and emotionally. Some of the details are ones that many people may not want to hear in detail. Some that I do not think I am able to share. Why? Well, some of  the details are pretty gross. My most recent experience is pretty fresh. It is hard for me to believe I was able to handle it. I did have help from Jennifer Daniels, MD. I also had the support from my husband, who despite being pretty freaked out by my situation, was extremely helpful to me. I will be eternally grateful for his love and encouragement while the worst of it was going on.

Again, sorry for not having more information here. I will write in more detail sometime in the next month or so.

OLDER BUT WISER? PARASITES, AGING AND POOR JUDGEMENT IN 2016

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN OLDER MEANT WISER…

Our Immune System detractors, also known as pathogens, bacteria – candida overgrowth, parasites [to name a few] are making our decisions for us.Think about this: Ever find yourself eating something you swore you would never touch again? Then falling asleep on the couch and waking up an hour or more later, more mentally glazed over than a donut from Krispy Kreme. Sugar is a food, food – ingredient that even mainstream medicine and society agrees is a major culprit in poor health. Caffeine on the other hand is a much more acceptable health detractor. We are a caffeine and sugar addicted society, period end of story. However, for many of us caffeine is the only thing that keeps us able to keep going, until the going stops. Mainstream health professionals, like many other people, deeply rely on caffeine to keep up very hectic schedules. Caffeine is part of our culture and pretty much condoned by the medical world. In essence, most doctors are not going to tell patients to get off the same coffee wagon that they are hitched up to. Ouch!

AS YOUNG, OR AS OLD AS WE FEEL?

I personally understand what premature aging feels like. I say that for a number of reasons. One is  because I do not drink coffee, or use other stimulants. After many years of clinical experience with clients, family and friends, I have seen, felt and heard the symptoms of premature aging. One description of premature aging would  be feeling and depending on caffeine to be fully functional. Premature aging, depending on ones expectations of health and well being, may also be defined as an immune system that is way below par. Today a compromised immune system is common for people of all ages. Yes, even in children. Why do I say that? First off, being tired all the time is not a healthy normal, but it has become accepted as normal. Needing some kind of lift every day, and I mean every day, more than once a day, is not unusual for a majority of our population. It is normal. This is one of the major reason why there are so many places to get a caffeinated beverage.

A former long time resident of NYC, there is a coffee, green tea latte joint every few blocks. In the suburbs of Southern California there is a Starbuck’s, or other caffeine chain, in house, in many supermarkets. People do not just want coffee, they NEED it. Is that premature aging – poor health? Well, caffeine is such a part of our culture that this premise may seem like a real stretch. If you and most everyone you know ingests some kind of caffeine to be functional, then what is the problem? So, is this premature aging? Well, years and decades of this need for speed is depleting. It gives people energy they really do not have.  Caffeine puts enormous pressure on our adrenals, kidneys, heart, the entire body. In Traditional Asian Medicine this consumption of caffeine is known to lessen  our most coveted Kidney Jing, our seat of strength.

WHAT GOES UP GOTTA COME DOWN, DOWN, DOWN

On the other side if you drink wine or some other alcoholic beverage to calm down, you are not alone either. Is this premature aging? Well, ain’t goin’ anywhere good. If a person needs caffeine of any kind to rev up and wine, weed or pharmaceutical to calm down, then I believe the answer is Yes! The next stop on this “train” to nowhere good will probably be prescription drugs, or worse. Try taking caffeine, sugar, alcohol or nicotine away from a person and you will initially see a pretty ugly side of them.

FULLY BAKED ON PHARMACEUTICALS

Our weak immune systems are making our decisions for us. As hard as this may be to hear, I am sure it is true. Medications of all kinds exist to hide, numb,or momentarily give us what we are lacking. This is often the ability to be alert, or the ability to power it all down. So, when we use caffeine as a source for being awake and energetic that is a choice that is not always being made from a place of power. It is being made from a place of desperation. From a place and entity that operates by taking what is truly not theirs to live. Parasites.

POLITICAL AND MEDIA PARASITES

If you sit down to watch TV one night and look up only to realize that more time has gone by then you were intending to spend, you are not alone. Same with the internet. Too much  media exposure, like ice cream, can give a person brain freeze. The addiction to news keeps many of us tuned into an election of mud slinging. Mud slinging that has been encouraged and maybe even orchestrated by the media. The media is a prime example of what parasites do best, making something out of “nothing”. A nothing  that originally belonged to someone else. So, if your life feels highjacked by things that we are constantly being told truly matter, and you are angry at people you do not personally know, you’ve been highjacked.

USA PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES 2016: CLINTON VS TRUMP: BOTH ARE OVER 65 YEARS OF AGE. OLDER BUT WISER IS SOMETHING THAT THESE TWO REALLY BRING INTO QUESTION, ESPECIALLY DONALD TRUMP

Climate Change, poverty and social violence are a few of the issues that deeply matter today. They are much deeper than these presidential candidates and the ridiculous amount of coverage they receive. Addiction to news makes it  way easier to focus on the screwed -up – ness of people running for office. Those”other people”. Easier than facing our personal health,environmental, and social concerns.  How we react to what the media presents is all that really matters. Being angry when hearing sound bites and snippets of news makes us all puppets of the media.

CLINTON IS AS FUNNY AS MARGARET THATCHER WAS. THANK GOD FOR TRUMP…

Remember, if you live in the USA vote on November 28th, just like Donald told us to do. Hello, will someone tell Donald Trump the correct date. It won’t be me. According to some polls, all of them, Donald may need all the help he can get. Then again, maybe not.

Strategically, Donald Trump [aka Donald Drumpf] is already giving his non- concession / concession speech. Someone has taken something from him that he never really had in the first place. This whole crazy presidential cycle is dripping in bat shit, and we all know what that is full of…

EARTH TO CLINTON’S: THIS IS AN ELECTION, NOT A CORONATION

On the Clinton side exists a highly obnoxious idea of entitlement: Eight years of Bill, then eight years of Hill. The Clinton’s, along with corporate power brokers – Super Pak’s, etcetera, all seem to think they deserve something that does not inherently belong to then. Clinton and Trump have way more in common than either of them, or any of their followers seem to  realize.

Aristotle said: “every country gets the government it deserves”.  Uh Oh! Their ages combined Clinton and Trump split approximately 140 years on this planet. With age comes wisdom? Not so much here.
