OBSERVING PATTERNS AND LOOKING FOR ANSWERS
If you are on The Unique Healing Program you will probably become, if you are not already, your own personal health and body detective. Donna Pessin has amassed a whole lot of information in her books to help guide people through The Unique Healing Program. It can only help people on The UHP to have other tools to better understand what is going on that maybe no one can really explain. If you have ever been to a doctor you know they usually do not have all the answers. What they often have is a way to make the symptoms go away. For awhile. Sometimes.
SPRING:UPWARD AND RISING ENERGY
Depending on our gut health, spring can be a wonderful time or one of great physical stress. For instance, increased allergic reactions are an indication that the Lung and Large Intestines are not in good shape. The organs most strongly associated and active in the Spring are the Liver and Gallbladder. If the Liver and Gallbladder are burdened with acids they will put more pressure on the Lungs and Large Intestines. Why? Because the Lung and Large Intestines are organs of elimination, if those two organs are already sluggish the spring cleaning effect from the Liver, Gallbladder and other organs can cause symptoms that range from minor discomfort to grave illness.
The skin is the largest organ of respiration and will take a hit for what the Lungs and Large Intestines can not handle. The Lungs are responsible for the exchange of gases and the Large Intestines is also. Everything from itching, cracking skin, acne, psoriasis, ecsema, and anything else is a sign that these two organs are backed up.
Here are some basic guides that may help add some clarity as to what and why things happen seasonally whether you are part of The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin or just checking it out:
I have not read this book in years, but I think it is definitely worth checking out: Staying Healthy With the Seasons, by Dr. Elson Hass. It has remained a strong staple in the Holistic Health Movement. I think it has some timeless information.
The Face Never Lies by Michio Kuchi and Your Body Never Lies by the same author. These two books are usually available at Whole Foods, Barnes and Noble, and most definitely online.
Between Heaven and Earth by Beinfield and Korngold may be too much information for some, but it is well written and something to take a closer look at if the description interests you.
I found a website that may give some help to those with skin eruptions to better understand The Lymphatic System from a practical point of view.
I have some other ideas that I can add to this list, but for now this is it. If you have somethings to recommend please email me. There are many good resources out there.
