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.
