OPENING UP YOUR CAN OF WORMS: KERRI RIVERA CD AUTISM

PARASITES: THE CONSTANT COMPANIONS

It is easy to understand why very few individuals want to face an epidemic that is effecting every aspect of  life and health in what most aptly can be described as destructive. So deeply rooted that most choose to ignore something that is happening right inside their own bodies. A topic that is considered grossly unspeakable. It is rarely mentioned in conjunction with the pervasive sickness and poor health that is the norm here in the USA. What is it? Parasites. Parasites that are procreating and defecating inside their hosts. Hosts meaning you and me!  That will sound disgusting, ridiculous and simplistic to many as the cause of illness. What also makes it even more sadly repugnant is all the profits made, money spent, jobs created, lifestyle built around not facing the basic cause of poor immunity and inflammation. Really.

How wide spread is this parasite issue? Well, if the opinion of a Medical Doctor impresses you click here. Dr. Peter Wina, Head of Patho – Biology at Walter Read Medical Research Institute in Washington, DC.

BUILDING AN ECONOMY ON SOMETHING SO GROSSLY DESTRUCTIVE

One reason that people remain uninformed is because, as I mentioned above, so many jobs are based on proliferating sickness by not facing the base cause. The cause being something so unsavory to most people. The same people that are their hosts. What a crazy irony. Studies, foundations, corporations are built around researching how to “solve” disease, illness,  psychological misery, and plagues that besiege humans. It is important to mention all the plagues humans dump on nature, and in turn themselves. All of this happens by avoiding some very inconvenient truths about personal and environmental health.

OUTSMARTING OURSELVES

What I have noticed is that the mindset that does all this  complex medical and scientific research is being dictated to and manipulated  by the same “problem” science clains they are trying to solve. So what am I saying? The medical community is not healthy. These people are us. Parasites, fungal infections overgrowth of bacteria, pass through all of us. They only take up residence and dominate when the host is weak. So, sick infected people doing the research is like asking the police commissioner to investigate a crime that he or she has committed themselves. That crime is not getting solved any time soon. Asking Traditional Medicine to solve what keeps their employment rolls high, Big Pharma in the black, stockholders and board of directors happy?  Sounds like a conspiracy born out of addiction. Rationalizing and defending sick behavior is the trademark of any addict. A conscious conspiracy by those involved, in research, in the medical field? In my view not likely the case.

Addiction to food, medications, alcohol is so inbred and wide spread in our societies. Everyday, people choose substance over the people they are in relationship with. Sadly, this includes parents with their children. Crazy as it is, this behavior is passed down generation to generation. In many families, the only thing that holds everyone together is the eating and drinking of food and beverages on holidays. When the main focus is on food so much else never gets addressed. It is all about addiction. Food is the acceptable addiction. Who does not eat, over eat and just plain pig out? Not many.

FEED ME

Parasites, bacteria, viruses live inside us procreating and thriving at the hosts expense. They burrow deeper and deeper into our tissues, and organs. Brains included. Using words such as infection and bacteria help to sanitize things and keep the ugly truth from being faced. Something that looks like it belongs on the end of a fishing pole is living inside people. NEWS FLASH: You can pay someone to tell you that is not true. They wear white coats and have years of medical training. They have long relationships with Pharmaceutical Companies who are invested in keeping people using their products. These products are called drugs, also known as medications.

WHAT’S IN YOUR WALLET?

Wall Street in deeply invested in Big Pharma and other industries that contribute to some extremely destructive lifestyle choices of society. Many people say they want change. One way change can begin is by individuals looking at their investment portfolio and that of their employer. The findings and knowledge are often very surprising to most. It can easily cause people to turn a blind eye to their contribution to keeping life status quo.

As I mentioned before, getting to the heart of what causes illness through Traditional Western Medicine is similar to the chief of detectives being the mastermind to the crimes they are personally investigating. In a similar way investors are feeding and placating their addictions until they decide to face them, or not. The deeper each person is invested financially in carrying on this charade, the longer it will continue.

In the meantime, check out what Kerri Rivera and Kimberly McDaniel have to offer with research by Dr. Andreas Kalcker. Their program is centered around information that, I am sure, we all need to be aware of. I have written many posts about The Unique Healing Program. Please read more recent posts for an update on where I stand on The UHP. Take a look at The UHP videos and website to educate yourself if you are knew to Donna Pessin and her program. Whether you agree with the protocol of Donna Pessin, her videos are instructive. They express a way of thinking about healing that has merit.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM: WILL THE REAL DONNA PESSIN PLEASE REAPPEAR

THIS ISN’T ABOUT WHAT YOU MIGHT THINK, OR MAYBE IT IS…

At this point in time Donna Pessin has announced that she is not taking on any new clients, or doing any one on one consultations. Her advice is to watch her videos and read her books. Is that really enough guidance and support for The Unique Healing Program? If you have a medical diagnosis and feel quite ill, the answer is no. If you are searching for a  way to improve your health, the absence of her personal guidance could be a positive. Why? Because if a person is really determined to get well they will be diligent in doing their research. A person needs to be diligent on The Unique Healing Program, with or without Donna Pessin. One needs to be diligent with any health protocol, whether the treatment is western medical or not. How often does that kind of patient involvement and scrutiny happen? Not very often.

IF YOU ARE FEELING LOUSY, RESEARCH MAY NOT BE SO EASY FOR YOU

People rely on someone to guide them, or just plain tell them what to do. Sometimes this is laziness, but for most it is that they are just too sick and deeply need that guidance. The crazy part of all this is that many people doing a medical protocol have NO idea what they are being given, what they are taking. This is an everyday, accepted reality. Ever heard the expression – The doctor “put me on” this drug or that treatment. Blindly taking whatever is given them without any real understanding of what is in it, or what the effects are. That is the normal way to behave! In fact,  you are often labeled a trouble maker, by some medical staff, if you do ask too many questions. The irony is that many of these same people give a non- traditional approach, like The Unique Healing Program, the third degree and expect a person, such as Donna Pessin, to be their everything. Everything they never got from a western medical professional, their best friend, mother or shrink. Oh yeah, and the health “guru” needs to be totally sane and predictable. Good Luck! I would settle for acknowledging the crazy side and an apology. Some of you may know what I am talking about.

COME BACK DONNA

Whether you are interested in speaking to Donna Pessin for the first time or ever again, what I am about to say here may or may not make sense to you. Here it is: At some point a person has to go with their gut on what route to take for healing. If your gut is not very healthy and it is effecting your brain in a way that makes it hard for you to trust, then you may have a big dilemma. Recognizing that as a dilemma, and cultivating an instinct that is able to override your inability to trust is all I got for ya. There is so much information on the internet. It is sooooo easy to find a list of reasons not to do any program, such as The UHP, written by the mind of someone who is as unhealthy as many of us are today. Often way worse. And what does that look like? Well, I call it functional paranoia and it can keep you dabbling and never committing to any non-medical healing program that does not have an MD’s name attached to it. Forget the MD part, a program that challenges your beliefs of what is possible, or is not a quick fix. The UHP is NOT a quick fix.

MOVING FORWARD

It looks something like this: If you can not resist clicking on  the heading – Donna Pessin is a quack, reading all the things that are wrong with ingesting Sodium Bentonite clay, the possibility of your skin turning blue from Colloidal Silver, and the possible harm from sustained intake of Berberine Sulphate Herbs, you can easily become paralyzed by fear. If your taking action is often nullified by fear and suspicion, you will probably end up in the care of a traditional medical doctor, and that just may be what you need to do. I hope you find a good one. Having a medical diagnosis can make it somewhat understandably harder to trust a program like The Unique Healing Program. This is especially true now with Donna Pessin, not presently at the helm. You may want and need precise directions. Assuming you will get that form a doctor, a doctor is what you may bloody well need. Channeling my British grandmother there.

HEALING SERIOUS ILLNESS ON THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM

Is it possible? I do not feel comfortable personally directing people I know to do The Unique Healing Program. I certainly do not feel comfortable directing people with diagnosed, chronic illness. What I am comfortable doing, I do through this blog. I could say take a look at this program to people I know, but even that is more than I am willing to do.  The reasons are not complex. I just don’t have the energy to listen to someone complain to me while I am in the throws of healing myself. Listening to them complain about something they have not given any real time to. I am glad I found The Unique Healing Program and decided to pursue it. I did this partly because of the balls Donna Pessin has had. She has put herself out there and states with confidence that she has found a protocol of healing for a sick body and bowel. Whether this is true for you is something you will only know if you try it by following the instructions she has given in her books and videos. Is that enough to have as guidance for everyone? If that was all that was available to me when I stared The Unique Healing Program, the answer would most probably be a no. Don’t let what I say stop you!

There is presently support on social media for The UHP. Do some research, or write me here.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: KIDNEY AND BLADDER CLEANSING DURING THE WINTER MONTHS

Think about this: You can have an extremely unhealthy GI Tract your whole life, and for most every person their kidneys and bladder still function reasonably well. You can be highly “allergic”, asthmatic, strongly prone to respiratory illness and your bladder and kidneys still keep on keepin’ on. You can have cancer, HIV, neurological illnesses and the kidneys and bladder do their job, maybe not as efficiently as they might without these complications, but they work. So, when the kidneys are cleansing, we are talking major cleanse. Our kidneys have been filtering out, to the best of their capability, the toxins in the blood and other body fluids, that the other organs of excretion could not process. The Liver- Kidneys and Bladder take a whippin’ and keep on with the good fight, until they can not anymore…..

On a personal note, despite feeling constipated as a adolescent or teen the one other uncomfortable feeling I distinctly remember about my body was feeling like I had water retention. The bloat. As a dancer and athlete, at about 15 years of age or so, I noticed the sensitivity to salt. Bingo!

SO, IF YOUR LOWER BACK ACHES, ETCETERA WHILE ON THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM….

If you are on a cleansing and rebuilding health program you may be a perfect candidate to notice the sensitivities that your body goes through with each season. Every person has these cleansing symptoms, but they are interpreted and often treated as something to suppress. As a participant in The Unique Healing Program and many others in prior years, I am very familiar with the symptoms and different expressions of each season and the  different organ systems of the body. In the winter the organs that are most actively “stressed” are the kidneys and bladder.

So, if you are on The UHP or a health conscious person looking for answers to healing, the kidneys and bladder are two organs to more fully understand. Know where your kidneys are located. The kidneys and bladder are major organs of filtering and excretion of toxins. Increased regular pressure is put on them, especially if the colon is backed up, breathing is shallow, and a myriad of other reasons from daily exposure to environmental toxins, dietary habits, family health history. The list is long and does involve daily emotional stress.

Zoning in on one important point, the kidneys and bladder take a whole lot of abuse and can function under great stress. Maybe a  blind eye is turned to daily annoying symptoms? Many people do not know seem to want to understand there is a problem until it becomes more than VERY inconvenient. Urinary tract infections of people of all ages is more and more common, middle age people wearing adult diapers. The bar is pretty low on what we think is acceptable. Expectations are being lowered for us by medical practitioners, pharmaceutical companies via TV commercials, and other media. So, just know that especially at the end of fall and during the winter your kidneys and bladder will have an extra burden put upon them. This is a concept of Traditional Asian Medicine and one I have personally witnessed as a Bodyworker, Shiatsu Practitioner, Yoga Teacher and Colon Therapist. Palpating the Hara/ Gut/ Belly of many people has taught me a whole lot. Listening, watching season after season, for 25 years or more, the patterns are undeniable in myself and many others. Palpating the kidneys is also very revealing.

THE BOTTOM LINE

When the kidneys and bladder fail, often known as renal failure, it means dialysis. You are then  pretty much screwed or saved by modern medicine, depending on how you see things. So just know that the kidneys are pretty much the last to completely heal when on The Unique Healing Program, or any cleansing- health rebuilding program. One major reason being that our body is mostly water and these two organs, Kidneys and Bladder, are most stressed in the Winter. When the Kidneys and Bladder are out of balance the emotional pattern moves toward fearful thinking and behavior / or complete recklessness. The odor of urine when they are cleansing, stressed, sick, or out of balance can be a rather putrid one.

The Kidneys are where Jing Essence is stored, with focus on the left one. The Adrenal Glands located right above these mighty organs are deeply connected to them. Understanding more about that location can be empowering and help with comprehending the healing process while on The UHP. Patience, here I go again, is the key. Not easy, but the healthier we get the more things seem to flow like a river [water]. The more relaxed we can genuinely be. When life feels like it is flowing the kidneys are in good shape. This is an important thing to observe and look forward to as health improves. When life feels like it is constantly stopping and starting, out of whack, it may be, or it may be our perception of it. Something to observe and give hope about the future and the positive change that is coming. I know it does not always feel that way!

To learn more about all the organs of the body and the seasons that effect them I would suggest reading Between Heaven and Earth by Beinfield and Korngold. This is one book I own and want to refer to more often. You will easily find some info, with an engine search, on this subject of Seasonal Changes and the Organ Systems of the Body. This is a Chinese Medical, Traditional Medicine concept that can be traced back to ancient societies all over the globe.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: PAIN MANAGEMENT VS HEALING

DON’T JUDGE UNTIL I HAVE WALKED IN THEIR SHOES

I have had a long term injury and pain for over a decade. Because of my discomfort I have come to understand why people take pain medications, numbing injections, and have surgery. I did not  take pain meds, have injections or have surgery because of all my work as a bodyworker, yoga teacher and colon therapist. I saw firsthand that the medical approach to pain only led to short term relief, more pain, injections and surgery. What I write here, I am hoping, will speak to people who have had surgeries and those who are looking for an alternative to taking pharmaceuticals long term, injections and surgery. There is hope for everyone, even if you have had joints replaced, amputations and other medical intervention.

PAIN MANAGEMENT VS HEALING

Taking medications or drugs, prescriptive meds are drugs, is not a long term solution for chronic or reoccurring acute inflammation. Joint and body pain that is not being treated with a long term healing plan, such as The Unique Healing Program, is all about numbing. Long term use of oral medications, numbing injections most usually leads to surgery down the line. All these ways of dealing with pain do not get to the root of pain, which is inflammation, and often lead to other serious illnesses. Drugs that help to diminish pain while on a deep healing program, like The UHP, are drugs that are being taken with a long term goal in mind. This goal is to help live life while healing. Drugs given for numbing as a long term plan are dangerous for a number of reasons.

HERE WE GO

A Primary reason for not using numbing drugs long term with no real healing plan in place is simple. People can not feel what is really going on and continue to re-injure themselves. Also known as not living life on the sidelines. I understand that reasonoing, but the drugs are not healing they are numbing. This is a very tough subject to discuss because it is extremely personal to each individual and often gets a very defensive emotional response. What does that mean?  Healing means different things to different people, and one has to believe that our bodies can heal. That is not a belief that many people hold. Masking pain long term is not healing.

AN EXAMPLE

I had a client in NYC who was taking Celebrex for a few years for arthritic pain that she felt most strongly in her knees. She had a very agitated disposition. Why? Because she had inflammation throughout her entire body which includes the nervous system. The numbing drugs numb and do not heal. They eventually do become injurious to organs. The television commercials for medications tell you this. The message is sadly laughable. Down the line injury to organs is one of the inconvenient truths of medication for inflammation. Anyway, this person needed a “minor” medical procedure  [D & C] and was told to stop the Celebrex for a period of time prior to the surgery. To get to the point, no Celebrex meant she could finally feel the pain in her knees. She could not  walk without unbearable  pain right before and after the surgery. It was clear that her knees were five alarm inflamed. The Celebrex was enabling her to continuously re-injure herself. Outcome: she had both knees replaced and after that her hips. At the time she was in her mid 50’s.

In order to pursue a full body healing, similar to the woman I just described, you have to believe healing can take place. You have to believe that even if you have had joints replaced you can avoid having others replaced. You have to believe that a  healthier GI tract – gut- bowel organs, blood and cells will keep your joints, joint replacements, amputations, dental implants, face lift procedures in much better condition. A more balanced over all body PH will lead to a more balanced life and healing. You have to be sick and tired of hurting, and that is just the beginning.

Healing with The UHP is not fast and easy, but the other way I just described is not a solution for those that know it will ultimately cause more damage down the line. Many know that the drug- surgery  path it is not  a solution because they are living it everyday in pain. I said many, not everyone. There may be exceptions. Again, you can have had medical intervention that saved your life. What you do after that will determine the quality of your life.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: GETTING RID OF THAT PAIN IN THE ASS

My hips and entire lower body are healing while on The Unique Healing Program. Long term pain and a very complex injury, this healing process has taken faith on my part and a deep belief, long before I found The UHP, that healing happens on a cellular level and begins in the gut. With that said…

A PAIN IN THE BUTT

Pain in the hips and buttocks are very common for many people of a wide variety of age groups and lifestyles. Among some, it is often felt when they start doing more rigorous workouts. Workouts that involve squats, jumping in and out of a squatting position, lunges, sprinting and spinning. In my experience, any exercise that wakes up the sleeping giant  of acidity that collects within the joints of most people, including some children, is the bottom line cause of this discomfort. The accepted word used to explain that discomfort is Lactic Acid. The term Lactic Acid is used as indiscriminately in the world of what I call Managed Sickness [aka Western Medicine] as is Metabolism, Heart Attack and Stroke and most other names for specific illnesses that are greatly inspired by selling drugs form Pharmaceutical Companies. I firmly believe those specific terms for illnesses can serve a needed purpose. These medical diagnosis can be a wake up a cal for many. They can also create a sense of defeat and overwhelm for those who feel ill. Many patients understandably don’t have the  stamina / chutzpah to go looking for an answer outside what the Pharmaceutical Company – Western Medical Paradigm provides. When people are ill they can often just collapse into the arms of what seems to be the safest most highly traveled path.

What is this post about?

I am hoping to briefly give my point of view of how some joint pain, especially in the lower body begins, festers and can be lessened. How it can be dispelled more quickly, identified as the beginning of something more deep seated and begin to be eradicated. A tall order and one that, depending on when the pain or injury is addressed, does not have to take forever to clear. Unfortunately, most people are under the impression that it is normal to have discomfort after strenuous work outs or “hard labor”. The advocation of medicating before workouts through Pharmaceutical Companies via all forms of media is hitting a younger and younger audience really hard. This selling of over the counter pain relief to be taken before pain is felt is directed toward all audiences. No Pain, No gain- but YOU [consumer] don’t have to feel it at all. Not now, anyway…

The hip joints are big recipients of constant use and misuse for an number of reasons. All of this can and does greatly contribute to pain in these areas. Briefly, sitting too long without a break, sitting without proper support, exercising under stressful conditions and from a place of improper posture are some basic reasons. Other brief examples would be rigorous gym and athletic activity without proper cross training, and weekend warrior workouts. No pain, No gain mentality. Lifting weights and doing other sports with hyperextended joints. This is the tip of the iceberg, but  maybe you get the idea? All this greatly impacts all of the joints, but most frequently the lower back, hips and buttocks. Just a glimpse.

LEARNING FROM OUR PETS

Dogs most usually have back leg problems. Front leg issues are much less the case, in fact I have never heard of one. The bowel, kidneys and sexual organs of dogs and other [domesticated] animals are near that  back end. The level of health of these organs greatly determines the health of those back leg joints. Okay, so same with people. The colon, kidneys/bladder, sexual organs location deeply impacts the hips and back. The poor health of these organs has a much broader implication – on a cellular level. Just look at the anatomy of the colon and how that lines up with the hips and buttocks. Acupuncture points aside, and they really can help diagnose a large part of why people are in so much pain, these localized locations of organs to joints are very telling. I think this is really common sense and a very inconvenient truth.

WHAT TO DO?

One plan of action is to look at The Top 5 Diet Tips Video. This video and blog posts, connected to the link, are largely about why eating a  less acid forming diet heals the body. Secondly, to take something to absorb the acidity that is in all of our tissues, organ, blood and cells and that is Sodium Bentonite Clay. There may be another clay out there that is good that I am not familiar with. I have used Zeolite Clay. Healing with clay takes time, but you can reap benefits early on. Start somewhere. Other things can help, such as bodywork, soaking in mineral baths, saunas and infrared heating pads. All this is great, but what is going on internally is the key. This key, reducing acid accumulation in the joints by healing our digestion and elimination, can help clear our minds to know what the next steps are. In other words, eliminate brain fog, confusion and encourage clearer thinking. The gut- brain connection is very real.

BOTTOM LINE – NO PUN INTENDED – MAYBE A LITTLE BIT

Acids collect in the joints and diminish their function. If you have pain don’t accept that it is inevitable. If you have pain you can continue to take medications while on The Unique Healing Program while healing. Speaking to Donna Pessin can be very helpful, especially if you are taking pain meds that are prescribed or over the counter. In the meantime, read her book[s] – I think the first book is the most important. Watch the UHP videos and check out past notyourrawmama blog posts here. These notyourrawmama posts chronicle my experience before and while on The Unique Healing Program. The posts are honest and straight forward. I believe they can help some people feel support in healing, answer and shed light on The Unique Healing Program. Help some while on other healing programs.

Here are a few other notyourrawmama blog posts about hip pain that may be of help:

Poor Digestion and Joint Pain I wrote this just prior to UHP. It  has been revised since finding The UHP.

Heal Hip Pain Now a quick read on some alternative ideas to heal. The UHP is one of those things mentioned.

Hip Replacement Surgery a post with a link to a video showing how hip replacement surgery is often performed. Make an informed decision.

There are many other posts about The UHP. Where it was appropriate and helpful, I wemt back and revised all the posts and mentioned The Unique Healing Program.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: HAND PAIN-HEALING PAIN ON THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM

Something I want to share immediately is that  I have had hand discomfort and stiffness for about 10 years. I knew the cause was not occupational. I know people who do not do anything arduous with their hands and  they have hand pain. Even children. Okay, so my hands could be stiff at times, but the most upsetting thing to me was that they could hurt very badly if someone tried to shake my hand or if anyone tired to hold my hand. This was a really bad sign to me. Toward the end of my living in NYC, as a bodyworker and colon therapist, I used my hands despite this discomfort and utilized my elbows and forearms when I could for bodywork. I never accepted hand pain as unsolvable. I can report that the pain in my hands is completely gone. I still have some finger stiffness at times, but it is nothing in comparison to what I did have 18 months ago when I began The Unique Healing Program.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL PAIN?

My experience is a slow healing with my right hip, but I have had pain in my right hip joint beginning in early 2001. I am also over 55 years of age. As a dancer, athlete, bodyworker and yoga teacher I always had some stiffness in my hips and hamstrings. I worked at being flexible. Quite frankly, most of the other athletes, dancers and yoga teachers I knew, also worked at being flexible. What does that mean?  This is all subjective, but many to most over stretched their bodies and created more problems than they realized. Some people start certain athletics to defy physical limitations. People tend to be more competitive when they are younger and are not working their bodies from the inside out. Does this feel right? What is good for me?  No Pain, No Gain is part of our culture here in the USA and in other countries all over the world. Re: The Olympics.

INFLAMMATION IS NOT A ONE AREA OF THE BODY DEAL

To understand that our Immune System is also encapsulated in our joints is very important. Here is one explanation.To understand that our Immune System is greatly contained in out gut is vital to understand how we heal and how we become inflamed weakened and ill. Here is one explanation.

HAND PAIN AND THE LUNG AND LARGE INTESTINE

One hand point that is very important to know about that is linked to the Large Intestines and Lungs is located in the hand. It is an extremely common place for many to have pain and to develop some calcifications. It is near a joint that easily begins to look arthritic and “deformed”. I don’t like that word, but it gets the point across. Large Intestines 4 is a good point to treat yourself for, among other things, gas and constipation.

Some people feel that the body heals from the head down. I have sort of experienced this, but have had healing breakthroughs and changes all over my body while on The Unique Healing Program. I also have frustration about areas not healing, to my liking, fast enough. Generally speaking, I am not really sure exactly what is going on, but in most instances this theory seems sort of true. Legs can heal much later in the game due to gravity, poor circulation that increase the likelihood of  toxins collecting there due to these facts. What is your experience?

If you are on The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin, hang in there. If you are debating whether to begin it or not, keep watching her videos, read her books and check out past posts on this blog site. These tools will help you to decide and make an educated decision. One thing I have to say is that part of not feeling well can be ruminating too much and not taking action. Just keep that in mind.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: PAIN – HEALING JOINT PAIN WITH THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM

HEALING PAIN AND INFLAMMATION THROUGH THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN

I have had an inflamed condition in my digestive system that has shown up in my right hip. How this all began and my quest for better health has been discussed in past posts. I will go into more detail in future ones about joint pain. I have felt, for about 15 years, that the way to heal my hip pain was to heal my digestive system and create a healthy bowel. Since the beginning of The Unique Healing Program I have had an improvement with my gut by having daily regular formed bowel movements. Ongoing constipation has been part of my life since I was a child. To have my gut show some positive response to the Sodium Bentonite Clay and other supplements that are part of  The UHP was really a huge green flag for me. This Unique Healing Program brought me a result that no other did. As you can read in many of my other posts on this site, I am a veteran of a many decade search for better digestive health. This was not something I consciously wanted as a life mission. With so many others suffering [commercial advertisements directed at all age groups] I know I am not alone and am pretty, pretty sure I have something others are interested in hearing about. How to heal, rejoin the world and experience life differently.

Healing pain and managing pain are two very different things. Many programs of all different kinds talk about managing pain. They often do not talk about finding the root cause and healing the problem on the physical and emotional realm . I have done years of emotional healing work including EFT [Emotional Freedom Technique] that can help alleviate and understand the emotional roots of pain. EFT can often bring long or short term relief to some people. In order for deep healing to come about it helps to really believe pain can actually be eradicated. Why? Well, my belief  that it can be healed  has kept me on my quest for a solution without relying on daily quick fixes from Western Medicine. So, how do you heal pain? Well, this is one of the reasons I have been so reluctant to write about my experience with my hip pain-injury.My reluctance comes from not having an answer that would be easy to put into words. An answer that might make sense to readers, and be at all palatable. So, I  have decided to write about it in several parts and hope that these parts make up something that translates well on paper. Something that people can identify with.

This is a introductory post on my pain healing experience onThe Unique Healing Program. Here are three things I can share in all honesty that may help those looking for an answer. Those who have any kind of pain, and are looking for a long term source of relief and deep healing:

Number 1: I have, without a doubt, felt the deep connection between my bowel being more or less healthy and my pain becoming less to more pronounced. Consistent improvement has not come quickly for me on The UHP, but I did not expect it to. Prior to my finding The Unique Healing Program I spent at least 12 years seeking an answer to heal pain and inflammation in my right hip and lower back. I did this through entirely natural means. My constipation issues go back to childhood and had me looking for an answer since my teens. So, we are talking decades on a quest to feel better at many different levels. There was no internet when I started this journey. It is so much easier now and the resources are so much greater. A real understatement.

Number 2: An inflamed joint means an inflamed digestive system. A better quality diet based on healing principles does not guarantee better health for everyone or anyone across the board. I have written a great deal about this on this blog site. My need to seek another way to heal became clear to me due to a hip injury, and pain that lingered afterwards. When I started to have pain I was in deep denial. This denial come from believing my diet, cleansing, colonics, bodywork, yoga, etcetera would protect me and eventually I would attain gut health. My pain won out and I began to look elsewhere. That search finally brought me to The Unique Healing Program.

Number 3: Pain, especially long term pain, will take time to heal. The digestive / eliminative system will, in most situations, completely heal in gradations. How long this will take is hard to say. Patience is not usually an attribute of someone who has pain. You are a candidate for joint / body pain if you are often constipated, have unformed stools, have indigestion, feel agitated, annoyed with people easily, can not sleep well, find the world a frightening place [I know the media says that is ALL the world is], need coffee and other stimulants to keep going, can not / have trouble loosing weight, can not gain weight, have OCD of any level, depressed, unable to maintain relationships or they are a burden of sorts, hormonal issues, eating disorders, reproductive problems, all kinds of addictions, and so much more. Why? Because these are all results of inflamed conditions and sooner or later you will, to some degree, feel it in your joints. This will most likely first happen if you have an injury. And yes, all those around you will call it normal,”old age”, and probably give it a fancy medical name. You will then be offered the “glamorized drugs” that Pharmaceutical Companies dole out like candy to any doctor or licensed medical practitioner who is willing, and or able to offer them to patients.

I have a whole lot to say about pain. I wish I did not have so much observation time. What I have observed is something that you may or may not relate to. I hope some of what I write in the coming posts is helpful. Maybe some of what I have written on this blog site will direct you to answers for your pain. I think when looking at a program like The Unique Healing Program it helps to find someone who is willing to honestly write about their experience. So, before I close this post I will tell you that I was in deep pain when I found The UHP and I am now in less pain. Also, many other of my symptoms related to poor gut health have greatly improved. To get here, things often got more intensely painful at certain points. I have also found intermittent  to longer periods of alleviation of pain. Now, 18 moths into The Unique Healing Program, I can say I am feeling a pattern of  joint healing What kept me going all this time? It  was my being able to link my gut healing to my joint pain healing. My gut sickness to my joint inflammation. I am sure of that without any doubt in my mind. I say that with complete confidence. Not an easy resolution, but I am sure it is a true one.

More to come.
