ENDOPARASITES: ARE YOU A GOOD HOST?

BILOGICAL PARASITES

How do people become hosts to parasites? There are many ways. Parasites are similar to house guests that overstay their invitation, or seemingly just show up and don’t want to leave? Well, there are many scenarios. Here is one:

Living in a home where there is consistent emotional stress combined with exposure to environmental toxins is not strengthening to any immune system. This is a situation that I can attest to. I grew up in a family where there was a birth of a child, my brother, who had Down Syndrome. My brother lived to be two years of age. Our parents stayed together during his life and after his death, but their marriage was greatly damaged. It was damaged by their not getting counseling, the issues they showed up with to their marriage, and strongly by the shame of that era around Down Syndrome. Also, the interpretation that people seem to garner from a religious standpoint. The self flagellating idea that a child with Down Syndrome, or any life altering illness, is a punishment from God. Something to be ashamed of. What did we do “wrong”? With time and education some of this superstition masquerading as spirituality has been chipped away at. Sadly, within this and many other situations, it is still present and painfully damaging.

ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES

Along with the stress of the shame, the remorse and guilt my parents felt, we also lived in a house that had  toxic black mold. Back in the 60’s I don’t think exposure to mold was understood or spoken about as it is today. For years much of the mold was hidden and passed through the ventilation system of the house. A metaphor for the unspoken emotional ills. The mold plus the directly unspoken sadness around my brother, and so much more, added up to a stressful equation for emotional and physical health.

Although I have good memories of my childhood there was much between my parents that went unspoken. It did not go unnoticed by me as a child. I think most children have emotional radar that they do not have the skills to fully understand. Children can often feel that everything, in the negative sense, is about them and that they are at fault. The emotional situation in my home, combined with daily life challenges was not empowering. It made us all more vulnerable to the mold. It made daily life covertly, and not so covertly, stressful. With these factors comes acting out, by children and adults. Wide emotional swings such as crying, bickering, brooding combined with constant exposure to any environmental toxin weakens the immune system even more deeply. I would imagine that dead silence and deep depression would be equally as destructive.

There are people that grow up exposed to serious environmental contaminants and it does not damage their Immune Systems. However, if there is the type of consistent emotional stress, similar to what I just described, an angry divorce, drug or alcohol abuse, physical abuse, etcetera without being addressed by some counseling the door to a weakened immune system is wide open. People in these situations often bury their feelings in addictive behaviors. Over eating, shopping, tv watching, gambling, sex, alcohol and drug use, exercise, cleaning, perfectionism. I think any activity done in excess to avoid emotions will in some way come back and bite.

ENDOPARASITES 

The emotional component of ongoing stress combined with exposure to environmental toxins weakens the immune system. Gone unaddressed these factors can lay out the welcome mat for Biological Parasites / Endoparasites. The combination of these factors, needed for deep healing to occur, are best not overlooked.

Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD is a doctor who understands the world of Traditional Medicine. She is brave enough to actively speak out about her views on this subject . Dr. Daniels effectively practices her own unique form of Holistic Medicine. She is able to do this because she understands the healing ability of the human body. She lives that truth and helps her patients, if they are willing. understand that if given the right tools the human body is capable of  healing and overcoming some daunting obstacles.

FASTER EFT: PAIN, PARASITES, AND INFLAMMATION

I find the Faster EFT videos on Youtube to be very helpful when addressing Physical Pain.  Here is a video that simply explains Faster EFT that is under 10 minutes. Robert Smith is the originator of Faster EFT and speaker in the video.

Here is another link to  Faster EFT  video that is under 10 minutes that may be helpful.

SOMETIMES FASTER EFT / EFT IS CONFUSING TO ME

Before finding Faster EFT Emotional Freedom Technique  / EFT has been especially helpful to me for dealing with sadness after the death of loved ones, and other emotionally charged situations. So, when I hear people speaking of their complete healing from physical pain doing Faster EFT I feel encouraged. I also feel frustrated because I have not had my physical pain deeply impacted by Faster EFT or EFT of any kind. I have had deep insights into my pain and the emotional situations that contributed to it. This kind of help has been invaluable to me and has directly impacted my long term healing.

PROGRESSIVE WESTERN MEDICAL TESTIMONY OF FASTER EFT

Here is a more recent video that has some testimony from two medical professionals. The man is a Scientist and researcher. The woman is a Radiologist.  They speak about  their recommendation of Faster EFT. I want to point out that they are both proponents of Traditional Medical Treatment. What these Medical Professionals have to say may be helpful and reassuring to some people. Despite the insistence on Western Medical Care from both these people, I am encouraged by their own personal and clinical experiences with Faster EFT.

For those of us that are not currently using traditional medical treatment, Faster EFT and other EFT modalities can be confusing.  I know it is for me. Why? Well, often there is a disclaimer that EFT does not take the place of medical treatment. What about Holistic Treatment? However, people do report having major changes in their pain and other issues using Faster EFT. From my own experience with Faster EFT, I am sure it can be a very helpful tool for staying the course on programs like Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD and others.

I am open to all the possibilities of using Faster EFT for healing. It is one  powerful way to gain some immediate relief from the toll not feeling well carries. Faster EFT can be a window into the root causes of how emotional stress, not confronted, beats us down. Over a period of time emotions gone unaddressed weakens our immune systems. The willingness to recognize the emotional component in healing is the most important step in healing on every level of health.

PARASITES: WHAT ARE THEY? TRULY, THE WORD DEFINES ITSELF

FEELING IMPINGED UPON? UNWANTED GUESTS

One definition of the word Parasite feels like something that is draining / enervating. This makes sense to me. On a biological level this drain may start out as invisible building blocks to feeling just not quite ourselves. The ones that need a microscope to be seen. Colds, allergies, headaches, food poisoning – nausea, mild rashes. mild indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, and other vitality vampires that are normal for most people today. Not normal? Just observe the different ages pharmaceutical companies are pandering to in their ads. No longer just the Geritol crowd.

I write this post pretty sure that I can not be alone in my slow recognition, and need for clarification of what defines a parasite. The word defines itself. So, what could be a post with lots of words is going to be as  short and sweet as I can roll it out.

MOST OF OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS IN OUR GUT

We are constantly being exposed to elements that need a strong immune system to be our defense. A healthy immune system, under the best of circumstances, keeps parasitic life forms in check. Long term stress of daily life, emotional stress, exposure to toxins and pollutants, pharmaceuticals, hospital stays, medications, interaction with pets, eating of animal products EMF’s, etcetera can, over a period time, weaken our immune systems.

CANDIDA CLEANER

Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD Candida Cleaner Guide outlines doses of different kinds of non – pharmaceutical ingredients for handling Parasitic conditions of all kinds.  All the things that I mentioned in the above paragraph, and many others. The allopathic remedies for these disorders, when taken regularly, sets people up for weakened immune systems and, down the line, much more chronic illness. A recipe for a decline in health.

CAN OF WORMS

I am sure I am not alone in hearing people say I have A  Parasite. This does not make sense. I am pretty sure there is rarely, if ever, only one. Concerning Parasites, this is the language that is most common.

Nothing happens out of nowhere, even if it often seems that way. In science, a type of religion many respect and revere, it is accepted that every action has a reaction. The human body is a primary example of how that all works, if we are willing to open our minds and not accept the bill of goods we are sold by Big Pharma, governmental agencies, and whomever else we consciously, or unconsciously, give our power away to.

TREE HUGGER REDEFINED

Being misinformed is greatly colored by what caused our poor health symptoms in the first place. What is that? An addiction to a way of life? I think so. In all fairness, it is something that we are bombarded with from Day One. That addiction blinds people as to what is truly important. What is important? Clean water, air and soil. Simple acts of human kindness. The basics for a happy life.

HEALING WITH DR. JENNIFER DANIELS – ONE YEAR LATER

SPONTANEOUSLY HEALING: THERE IS NO PLAYBOOK

I am a participant in Spontaneous Healing with Jennifer Daniels, MD. For me healing this way, it is like peeling and onion. Unfortunately putting a piece of bread in my mouth has not stopped the sting of detoxification. This is my experience. Fortunately, I have had the wisdom of Dr. Daniels, and my own experience during this process. This has greatly helped me weather my storm. Anyway, here are a couple of paragraphs that may, or may not jive with everyone who reads them. Maybe it will make sense to, and inspire some.

DEEP HEALING: CENTRIPETAL AND CENTRIFUGAL SPIRALS OF ENERGY

Becoming a patient of Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD and being a part of her Spontaneous Healing Program can, if one is willing, truly teach the patient how healing occurs. Deep healing is not a linear experience. Not many things, that I am aware of, in nature occur in a straight line. The spiral or circle of energy flow is a natural phenomenon.  Impatience and going from point A to B in a straight line is a human (faster is better) creation.  Much of Prescription Medicine, manufactured recreational drugs, super highways, planes, trains, guns, surgery, oil pipelines. These are some widely diverse examples of faster is better, cut to the chase ways to do things. This Time is Money, Hurry up and Relax energy is the underlying theme of most of Industrialized Society. Some of these things are born out of need and innovation, and abused out of impatience, fear and greed.

DEFINING, OR REDEFINING THE WORD SPONTANEOUS

Spontaneous Healing does not mean instantaneous healing, but it could. Healing happens in a series of steps. Steps we are aware or not aware of. Cause and effect, things happen in a series of steps, as in a circle, not a direct line. Defining or redefining what Spontaneous means, actually living it, is not always a comfortable experience, to say the least. What I am about to say may sound like a generalization, but I am sure it is not: People who are not well are often very controlling and spontaneity is not in their comfort zone. On the other side there are those that behave in a way that seems like they are spontaneous but in actually they are irresponsible. Their actions, either consciously or unconsciously, end up forcing outer forces, other people to step in an take charge / control. The irony is great on both sides.

From my own life experience people who are not well often feel unable to control their own situations. Out of frustration and fear they try to control others. I think this is a pretty common phenomenon.

Experiencing spontaneity in healing will either stretch a person, or they will reject it and look for a promise of a quicker fix. Spontaneity and Control are not synonymous with one another. This is true on or off of paper. The idea of control is a fantasy. Gong with the flow and listening to what our body needs is the healthy solution to creating some kind of feeling of control. That is true Spontaneity. This is a more healthy way of creating control in the truest sense of the word. This is not so easy a behavior to cultivate in a world of instant gratification, instant everything. We are living in a world that wages war on Cancer, nature and anyone who disagrees with their opinion destroying them verbally on the internet, and all other media. Our current Presidential Administration  here in the USA, is a prime and unfortunate example of this kind of behavior.

Working with Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD is not for everyone. I can not think of any one program / product that is for everyone. There is great value in what she does for those that feel inspired to seek a different kind of solution.

PARASITES: THE SOCIAL NEED FOR ANTI- DEPRESSION MEDICATIONS

SOMETIMES WHAT IS NEEDED MAY NOT BE INLINE WITH OUR PERSONAL CHOICES

It is apparent to me how necessary it is to understand that feelings of depression are often a part of healing in order to restore health. Sometimes depression is circumstantial and sometime it is chemical. Of course, it often is both. How potent it is and how it is expressed is what is most telling. How it impacts our lives, how it is experienced / acted out is the bottom line. It is only when we recognize the unforgiving feelings of embarrassment and shame about depression, that riddle our society, can true healing begin. We then open a door to moving forward and healing in a very deep way. Feeling shame about being depressed is hurtful to all of us and very damaging to our world in all aspects.

A free webinar that Oprah Winfrey and Eckart Tole hosted together back in 2009 is really worth watching, or listening to. It was 10 sessions and based on the book A New Earth by Mr. Tolle. To paraphrase: Mr. Tolle said that if there was no medication for emotional “sickness” the world would go totally mad and be unmanageable. Point being that we should all be compassionate toward those that rely on these meds. The more I heal from inflammation, the more I realize how depression is, or can be, a major characteristic of inflammation. When a person can not do what they want to do for long periods of time, due to illness / pain, being depressed is often the outcome.  People who take meds for depression are, or most likely will be candidates for more serious diagnosis down the line. Keeping people emotionally less reactive, also known as numb, creates more candidates for medications and other long standing illnesses. This is one way to keep  hospital and nursing home beds filled down the line. A rather sad observation, but I think one to be considered very seriously. No conspiracy theory.

Compassion for those around us whose behaviors seems unreasonable, and directed at us, need more quiet observation and less reaction. Taking things personally is the another sickness. I see this so enormously personified in politics all over the world today. Most strikingly, at this time, here in the USA with our current government and presidential administration.

Compassion for people we do not like much is one way to become more at peace with ourselves and our world. For me, a  work in progress. I am sure this is a healthier way to look at life in general than simply accepting that’s just how it is.

LEONARD ORR: AFFIRMING LIFE

BREATHE

A woman named Peace Arnold shared an affirmation with me that I have grappled with for the past several years. The affirmation, from what I remember, was given to her by Leonard Orr. Leonard Orr is the founder of Rebirthing. The words are simple, profound and timely. They challenge the beliefs that are running the minds of many people today. A mind that is combative and mistrustful. These word defy the idea that the world is  dangerous and we are all in jeopardy. It goes like this, I am quoting from memory:

The world is a safe and nurturing place, and I deserve to be treated that way.

I live in the United States. The United States is a country where more money is spent on the military than education and the arts. Many people that live here seem to believe  that the world is not safe. Not safe to the point of it being apocalyptic, yet many continue to have children and want their children to have children.

As I said earlier, I grapple with the above affirmation. I decided to make a change in it that helps it work for me. I just changed the first word from The to My. Goes like this:

My world is a safe and nurturing place, and I deserve to be treated that way.

We see the world as we are, not as it is.

The healthier I am the more believable both these statements are to me.

Thank you for reading.

ONE HEALING QUESTION:EMOTIONAL DETOX

EAST MEETS WEST

A few years ago I listened to a series of meditations put together by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. It was a 21 day Spiritual Detox Series. There is one pearl of wisdom that I came away with that I use everyday and want to share today on this post. It is a question that can be applied to any situation. I mostly use it in interactions with others. Before any communication, or interaction. I don’t always remember, but I am getting better at remembering before I do tasks that impact my health, my relationships, my acquisition of time.

THE QUESTION: WHAT IS MY INTENTION?

I recently had some news about someone that could have opened the door to calling a person that I have not had direct contact with for quite awhile. Asking myself what my intention was in calling helped me reassess the call and not make it. I realized that call would be an unnecessary distraction. A step back in engaging in a conversation that would not help me in my healing process. To connect with a person based on sharing information that would only help reinforce my own mental monologue gone unchecked.Covert complaining, gossip and lamenting about how bad thing are. Okay, maybe not so covert. But maybe it would start out that way? Oh, please! More yada,  yada, yada…

WHAT IS MY INTENTION ON STEROIDS

How much of what I say is totally unnecessary? More than less. Stopping myself from talking feels like being in my own Seinfeld episode. Realizing how much ideas that seem to be about something are really about nothing, but when examined are pretty revealing.

Detoxing happens on many levels. It is like looking through the garbage for something you think you threw out that can not be replaced. Who wants to do that? Sometimes it just bloody well stinks.
