OOPS, I THINK SHE DID IT AGAIN: DONNA PESSIN UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM

VANISHED. WELL, SORT OF…

BUT you can still meet her in her online videos and books. You can get a clearer impression of Donna Pessin and her program if you are able to look for answers concerning your health from a less needy place. You may then be more likely to take in a realistic picture of Donna Pessin and her program. In order to better understand what she is talking about it may be necessary for you to take the plunge and buy her products. How else are you going to fully experience what she is offering? Through a personal consultation? Unfortunately for some, Donna Pessin is not presently doing any consultations. In her mass emails she is indicating she may not return to doing personal consults in the near or distant future. Hey, no problem. Why? Because all you need to know is in her videos and books, right? That is what Donna Pessin is telling everyone now. But wait, all her videos, before her leave of absence, ended in a pitch for having a one on one consult with her, if you got stuck. Stuck is definitely what can happen while on The Unique Healing Program. In all fairness, on any program, but this according to Donna Pessin is not like any other program. This is very true in more ways than one…

DEFINING STUCK ON THE UHP

Stuck means not moving forward on The Unique Healing Program due to infectious material that is not being “knocked off ” by the Colloidal Silver and Berberine Herbs [Bowel Strength] that Donna Pessin advocates. The UHP Colloidal Silver, that Ms. Pessin says will do the trick. Stuck means not moving out enough of the toxic waste in a timely way with the Sodium Bentonite Clay [Body Bentonite] that she sells. Being stuck seems to be the case for all the people I am in touch with who are participants of The Unique Healing Program for over one year or more. Why is that happening? Well, one reason is that The Unique Healing Colloidal Silver is especially expensive to take in the dosages Donna Pessin currently recommends. The amount Donna Pessins says one needs to keep battling the infection that is stored throughout the body of many people on and off The UHP.

MMS

Donna Pessin does not, in her books or videos, recommend the use of MMS / CDH or CDS. This is the substance I have used on and off throughout my two years on The UHP. I also made Colloidal Silver, and continue to. I do this with a Sota Instruments Silver Pulser. I advocate Sota and The SilverGen.

LET’S TRY THE OTHER END

ONE of the other reasons people get stuck is that Donna Pessin does not advocate the use of Colonics and Enemas to help detoxify the body during her detox program. I could feel my body reabsorbing toxins and knew that I had to continue to incorporate Colonics or Enemas into my practice of The Unique Healing Program from the very beginning. Why? I could feel I was reabsorbing toxins that I could not get out quickly enough on my own. I felt rather low grade miserable. I tried not doing colonics and felt more and more bloated. Some other symptoms worsened. I have written other posts recounting my symptoms. Easy to find on this blog site search.

MMS ON UHP

Why does Donna Pessin NOT advocate the use of MMS? I asked her about using MMS and she did not deter me. As I said earlier, MMS is not recommended in any of her videos, books or emails. Why? Probably because she has not used MMS/ CD or CDS and does not understand it firsthand. I think this is a big mistake on her part. It will end up being a problem for her program, an already developing one as we speak, soon down the line. Also, MMS is very inexpensive. Unique Healing Program Colloidal Silver is 15.95  per bottle, last time I checked. Donna Pessin recently made it clear that to have an effective outcome one bottle is a portion for two days. Long term that could be very stressful on many levels.

BTW and FYI

If you are thinking of starting The Unique Healing Program please be notified: Many of the people I know, and others that write me through this blog, are in need of an anti fungal anti bacterial on an ongoing basis. More help than one receives from taking The UHP Bowel Strength.  It is not affordable for anyone that I know to take as much Unique Healing Colloidal Silver as Ms. Pessin recommends for ongoing infections. Even if money is not an issue it eventually becomes an annoyance. How long is this going to go on for? This is the question I asked myself. Also, is Colloidal Silver effective when being ingested daily on an ongoing basis? One thing David Wolfe makes clear in his 2009 Longevity Now Program [Immune System Bolstering Protocol],  is to keep changing things up. Make sure your ” unwanted guests” do not become immune to your chosen anti fungal / anti bactierial. Could this also be the case with MMS? I don’t know.  MMS may be a much more potent and a specific healing agent for many who are suffering from immune system related illnesses. Isn’t that at the root of all sickness? Me think it is.

Is all the info you need about Donna Pessin  in her videos and books?  I think the answer is yes. Listen to your instincts. I listened to mine and am very glad I started The Unique Healing Program.  Have been at it, my way, for two years. As I have said in other posts, I have had to tweak The Unique Healing Program repeatedly. It will take you as far as you can go with it.  Is there enough information in The UHP books and videos to set you on a path to healing without directly consulting with Donna Pessin? Maybe, and maybe not.

The UHP is not for everyone, but what is? Zippo. Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired and presently on The Unique Healing Program? Then it is time for some reassessing. N’est ce pas? Me think so.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: FEELING SICK, AYE?

HELP IS NOT THAT FAR AWAY

I personally do not know of any one practitioner or protocol of any persuasion that can absolve ALL of the distress that people face when healing. This statement stems from my personal and clinical experience. I generally do not like to make generalizations. They often feel good at the time, in the most self righteous sort of way. In this situation, however, I can stand by what I said above.

Realizing that health advisors, family and friends can not be there for us in ways they are not able, due to the fact that they can not feel what we are feeling, can be emancipating. No one can fill all our needs. Maybe pleading this case will help someone reading this post who is ailing, healing, and feeling alone. For some of us, these words could be a wake up call to take care of our health while we are more able bodied. It can make us stronger when we realize people, even people that love us, can only do so much. The rest is up to the one who is on the road to recovery. If that sounds cold, it is not meant to.

NOBODY KNOWS HOW AWFUL I FEEL

Well, you may not have ever said this, but I know I have, just ask my husband. Maybe you can not allow yourself to admit to how lousy you feel, or you just don’t know how you feel. This may be because you are surrounded by people that you are sure are way worse off than you are. Maybe you are the caregiver. Be careful, comparison can prove deadly.  What I am attempting to say here is that what matters greatly is  recognizing that none of us are truly alone. The next step is actually feeling what that feels like. You are not alone in feeling alone! Masking symptoms with drugs does not solve this alone feeling in the experience of many people today. People taking antidepressants. People using other kinds of recreational and non-recreational, over the counter and prescription meds. So, getting through to the point of feeling better while unearthing the sludge inside is no joy ride. Yes, I do know about The UHP Crutches. There are medical ones, too. You may also need the medical ones to get through a healing – cleansing crisis. Donna Pessin talks about this in her books. Reading this can help you feel okay about what YOU may need to do to heal.

If you are reading this post you are probably on the road to looking at a healing program, considering The Unique Healing Program, or at some stage of doing The UHP, or something else. If you are experiencing a healing crisis, you may be saying to yourself – how can I close this Pandora’s Box of feeling sick that I opened up? Well, if you opened it then you [the box], were probably seeping at the seams. It was either go to the “make it all go away” doctor – practitioner, or do something different. This can feel like quite a mess! BTW, YOU and I are not a mess, but the perception that life is a mess, that you or I are an unhealable mess is a symptom of being sick. Everything is wrong and a bloody disaster. Everything from feeling alienated, unloved, and highly overwhelmed. Oh yeah, and the planet is finished. Drama!

WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS POST? DOES THERE HAVE TO ALWAYS BE ONE?

Well, part is to let other people seeking some answers know that there is, in my experience, no one person who can make it all go away. I want my Mommy! That there IS help, as far as help can be found, all over the place. Donna Pessin is no great writer, she does not need to be. However, her books can be of great assistance. The effort is there and Donna Pessin’s most helpful self greatly comes through in her books and videos. Her videos, I have found, are informative and can also be very comforting. If you want to knit pick you could say the information in the videos and books are sometimes confusing. Sometimes they seem to be saying one thing and then disputing it in another part of the books, or other videos. However, they are there and do provide guidance from her experience. Keep reading her books and watching her videos. Continue to entertain the idea that you are NOT alone. I won’t go as far as to call that feeling of aloneness a myth, because when you are in it it can feel very real.

I have learned from Yoga [yoke or union] that looking for what joins us is the way to being at peace. Not looking for what sets us apart. Sometimes what seems to makes us different is what connects us, it is just harder to see. Why? Because most of us learn to look for what is wrong and how we are different. Often people get comfortable in our misconceptions and build a life around it. For most, change feels uncomfortable, but the other side of that is true healing. I have been working on implementing that Yoga philosophy in my daily life for decades. It has challenged the fabric of my beliefs. Living with a positive, Yoga focus is way easier. Perceiving life this way makes healing easier, too.

Don’t give up on your recovering your health. Do it at the pace you are able. Please know others are questioning this healing process and feeling as alone as you are. Now that is ironic!

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.

DEPRESSION AND THE PROLAPSED TRANSVERSE COLON: THE UNIUQE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN

What I am writing here may seem ludicrous to certain readers, for some it will be a no brainer, and for others it will be a bit of an epiphany, or at least something they will be willing to consider. So, here it is: How can anyone with a colon that looks droopy and sad not be depressed? Okay, let me tell you how I came to this observation besides why this seems so very obvious to me. First off, I admit that not all people with a prolapsed colon feel depressed, allow themselves to feel depressed or know they are depressed. Honestly covering the bases here.

Here is a link to a site that has some drawings of a Prolapsed Transverse Colon. I am not endorsing this site, the information on the site, or any products they sell. I found it hard to find a simple drawing or photo of a Prolapsed Transverse Colon by itself.

As a person who studied abdominal diagnosis [aka palpating the Hara in the world of Shiatsu] and  discovered colonics in their very early twenties, I have lots of personal observations about the gut. The one I want to share here comes from being a receiver of colonics and later becoming a colon therapist. So, to get right to it, as water would reach my Transverse Colon or the person I was giving a colonic to a similar thing would happen. They would often put their hand on their forehead, specifically across their eyebrows. They would report feelings of pressure in the head, a mild headache, etcetera. Water crossing the Transverse Colon, or tying to, was very uncomfortable for many people, especially if their colon was sluggish, untoned or, in more medical terms, or they had a Prolapsed Transverse Colon. A Prolapsed Transverse Colon may often be atrophied and have Diverticulitis [basic definition]. These are situations that I know many people, who are chronically constipated, have. A Transverse Colon that is prolapsed is a  wide spread situation. Many people who feel depressed, have headaches, migraines, eye problems, allergies, etcetera have this condition. It is a situation that western medicine does not address. It is a big problem that impacts many health issues that Western Physicians label as “unrelated” and a “minor” health concern. These minor abnormalities are all the beginnings and signs of much more serious sickness.

WHY LINK DEPRESSION WITH CONSTIPATION?

Who wants to feel emotionally and physically stuck, having physical [pain, gas, bloating] or emotional pressure that can not be relieved? No one wants to feel unable to be in control of the most basic function of our body for months, years or decades. This is not an empowering or uplifting way to live. Wanting to leave the house and feeling a prisoner until one has moved their bowels may or may not consciously limit the goals of some people in their careers and personal life. How honest are you willing to be when faced with what I just wrote? If you have this as your life circumstance and are willing to be honest, you will understand. If you don’t and won’t,  you probably are not able to. If you are reading this post you are most likely no stranger to bowel discomfort.

Depression and constipation – all those commercials on TV for anti- depressants nail the feeling of floating in a gray abyss. It is palpable. The dog can feel it. Now that is some pretty good dog training to get a dog to play depressed. They could just hire a blood hound or a basset….

THE WAIT AND SEE WESTERN MEDICAL STRATEGY

Linking Chronic Constipation with Emotional Depression is equating poor health with depression. As you look at photos of prolapsed colons, just ask yourself how can this be a long term life plan? When there is no plan from Western Medicine to correct a prolapsed colon except for surgery down the line, this is a recipe for further, much more serious health problems sooner or later.

A client once told me, a mother of four, that she did not really love being a mother (she loved her children), but loved being pregnant. Why specifically, and I am not joking, was because it was the only time she had regular bowels, especially as the pregnancy developed. It was the only time she felt, as the pregnancy progressed, rather euphoric. The fetus lifted up her transverse colon that she did tell me was otherwise prolapsed. She had chronic constipation her entire life. Her doctor must not have had any other solution for her prolapsed colon except – keep’em comin’. I truly hope that was not the case.

Just have to say here that if the Transverse Colon is prolapsed the rest of the colon is most likely not in good condition. You can find a myriad of photos of sick colons on an engine search. Try Bernard Jensen Colon Photos or Images, and you will see what I am talking about.

AS ABOVE, SO IS BELOW

The point of this post is to cover some of the often unthought of possibilities that defines an unhealthy colon, and how that plays out in every day life. Poor digestion and elimination has deep emotional effects. The location  and correlation of the Transverse Colon and the Head is barely acknowledged, yet understood. The Bowel-Brain connection as some refer to it. The Transverse Colon is just below the Thoracic Diaphragm. When the Trans Colon is congested, lacks tone, is prolapsed, or has inflamed pockets (Diverticulitis) it impacts our health deeply. It colors our thinking, can cause headaches, sneezing, sinus congestion, what seems like allergies.  Why this is I can explain in a way that seems most obvious to me: pressure building in the Transverse Colon and gut area eventually effects what is above it. That level is the head – throat diaghram. I have observed first and second hand, over and over again that this correlation is very real. Give it some thought and start palpating your own gut and anyone else in your life who will allow you. No, I am not kidding. It is amazing what can be learned this way. It will change your knowledge about your body and the bodies of others. It will eventually drive home the importance of the breath.

How many diaphragms does the body have? link here, There are four. Cranial, Cervical, Pelvic and Thoracic.

A long term commitment is needed to  heal a GI Tract that is not functioning well. The entire body pays the price for poor digestion and elimination.  You may know this, but many, many people do not. I have found The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin to be the answer for my health recovery. The UHP can help heal a prolapsed colon by absorbing acidity with Sodium Bentonite Clay. This allows the tissues of the entire body to not be bathing in their own waste. These tissues of the entire GI Tract can find PH balance and become toned again. When and while this is  happening the rest of the body will be able to heal due to the lessening of that acidity. The Unique Healing Program takes time, study and a daily routine. To understand how UHP works and how the body heals takes reading The UHP books, watching the videos and doing it. Doing it at whatever level you are able and can afford. It has taken me time on The UHP to start to develop the patience that comes with better health. That patience is what  keeps people on the path to healing. It is a long term commitment to heal on The Unique Healing Program, or any protocol for healing the bowel and body. I would say 1-5 years specifically for The UHP.

WRAPPING UP HERE

A droopy Prolapsed Transverse Colon can be a substantial stumbling block to feeling well, feeling uplifted, and to eliminating waste in a timely way. Something to seriously consider in creating and maintaining a healthy mind and body.

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: DIGESTIVE ENZYMES, PARASITES & FUNGAL INFECTIONS

If you are following The Unique Healing Program and working on better digestive and overall health on any level, taking digestive aids can be very helpful. When I started The UHP I spoke with Donna Pessin and asked her about continuing  taking Hydrochloric Acid with Pepsin. She concurred that this would be a good idea. I have always benefitted from HCL and would have continued taking it no matter what Donna Pessin had said.

Why take HCL with Pepsin or any Digestive Enzyme? A weak digestive system creates more acidity for parasites, candida, and other bacteria to grow and flourish in our bodies. Indigestion, undigested food sitting in the stomach and gut equals gas and bloating. This is a breeding ground for poor health that expresses itself as lethargy or irritation, mental confusion, unpleasant attitude, skin conditions, headaches, constipation, and ALL other health imbalances, cleansing reactions, and down the line serious medical diagnosis.

I am not sure why Donna Pessin does not include taking HCL and other digestive aids in her books and videos. I am beyond sure that if you have a sluggish gut your digestion can use all the help it can get. Just the other day I read that Ms. Pessin had recommended to one person that they use Digestive Enzymes and Beano as an adjunct to The Unique Healing Program. Digestion takes a long time to heal and will be in flux for all people healing. Digestive Enzymes can only make that healing easier. Taking them a few minutes before meals greatly helps the enzymes be more effective. I also find drinking a cup of boiled water can help indigestion that occurs at any time during the day. Chewing a little bit of  ginger, cardamon, clove fennel has helped me. Just one of these can help alleviate indigestion. Good to chew on an empty stomach or between meals.

Here is one page I found that gives a personal experience explanation of the need for digestive enzymes, low stomach acid and the autoimmune connection. It is a blog written by an person who is currently exploring healing through a Paleo type diet. I am not endorsing the Paleo Diet, but do understand why people choose it when suffering from Candida overgrowth and other digestive and GI tract disturbances. I think Paleo done with lots of vegetables small portions of organic fish and other animal proteins, green  supefoods and other low glycemic grains, fruits and some nut butters is a diet worth trying out. We become our own best advisors the longer we are on the healing path, learning new things and trying them out.

I use Solaray HCL with Pepsin. I have also used thousands of dollars worth of digestive and systemic enzymes from Dr. Fred Bisci and other purchased from Matt Monarch at The Raw Food World. The use of Systemic Enzymes while using Sodium Bentonite Clay may or may not be helpful for you. I have not found enzymes other than HCL with Pepsin necessary. Systemic enzymes used therapeutically break down toxic material in the body. At the time I was not using Sodium Bentonite Clay. I did not have a healthy enough digestive system to sponge up the acids that resulted in taking the Systemic Enzymes. I was not able to escort these acids out of my body in a timely way. I was using Zeolite powder and doing colonics. Because of these things, systemic enzymes created more cleansing symptoms for me than help. My experience.

HCL with Pepsin or another Digestive Enzyme of your choice can help make your gut, in the long or short one, a less welcome place for those “unwanted guests”. Heard that phrase from David Wolfe…

THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: DEFINING THE WORD CLEANSE

THE BODY IS ALWAYS CLEANSING, EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT ON A CLEANSE! YES, JUST LIKE NATURE THERE HAS TO BE A REGULAR LETTING GO OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES WITHIN THE BODY TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEW CELL GROWTH. CONFUSED? WELL, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. HOWEVER, THIS CLEANSING IS NECESSARY AND CAN NOT GO ON HARMONIOUSLY IN THE BODIES OF MOST PEOPLE. WHY? BECAUSE THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE THAT THE BODY HAS ITS OWN ECOSYSTEM. BECAUSE OF THIS FEW HONOR THIS NATURAL PROCESS. THEY TAKE MEDICATIONS TO SUPPRESS WHAT CAN NOT LEAVE IN A TIMELY AND COMFORTABLE WAY.

TAKING IN MORE THAN WE ARE LETTING GO OF CAUSES BIG PROBLEMS, AND OVERLOADS ALL ORGANS. ESPECIALLY ORGANS OF EXCRETION. THIS IS ESPECIALLY NOTICEABLE IN THE COLON, BLADDER, KIDNEYS, LUNGS AND SKIN. THIS IS DEMONSTRATED BY SICKNESS OF ALL KINDS, CONSTIPATION, TUMORS, ACHES, PAINS, SENSORY OVERLOAD, DEPRESSION, MENTAL ILLNESS, ACNE, SHINGLES, OTHER SKIN CONDITIONS AND MUCH WORSE. SIMPLE AND COMPLICATED IS THIS EQUATION.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MYSELF AND OTHERS

Okay, so when I found The UHP, over twenty months ago, I was very confused by the way Donna Pessin used the word cleanse. Cleanse to me meant that you fast or eat a very simple diet that could be a simple macrobiotic, simple raw food, juice feasting, superfoods and green smoothie dominant. Why? These ways of eating are mostly vegetable, low in fat and sugar. They give the digestive system a rest from breaking down of fats, dense grains and foods high in sugars. Yes, not all raw food cleanses are based on eating large amounts of fruit. In fact most fruit can be a very poor choice for many people. Why? Because they are high in sugar. Yes, fruit is sugar. No, I am not being obnoxious. Some people do not believe, know or want to know this.

The word cleanse, used in The Unique Healing /Donna Pessin, seems to mean eating substances that add to the load of what the body can not already handle. Eating foods high in sugar, refined and non refined carbs, some spices, caffeine, wine, alcohol, recreational drugs, medications, chemicals create overwhelm. They can bring the body to a point where more acid PH substances make our symptoms of illness / disease worse. In order to keep certain eating and lifestyle habits going people seek out medical practitioners of all types to help them be able to continue doing what they are doing, until they can not anymore. That list of practitioners sought out includes traditional medical doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, herbalists, psychiatrists, acupuncturists, nurse practitioners, colon therapists. The list is long and getting longer.

THE CLAY CRUTCH

Yes, some people think they can use sodium bentonite clay for a similar purpose. To eat foods that are cleansing, while healing, and not feel the effects. Personally, I do not find this works long term and sometimes at all. The Unique Healing Program will help heal the ecosystem of the body so that eating will once again become an enjoyable experience. This takes time. The ability or inability of Sodium Bentonite Clay to play this role has a great deal to do with the elimination of long held toxins on any particular day. Whatever is coming down the pipe, as Donna Pessin outlines in her videos. In other words, it is impossible to pinpoint exactly what causes what on any particular day. It is not wise to rely on Sodium Bentonite Clay as a sure fire way to feel good while eating and drinking more acid forming substances while healing an already acidic ecosystem.

BACK TO THE WORD CLEANSE

The point that I want to make clear is that the our body knows how to cleanse. That is something that most people do not understand. Practitioners and patient – clients from all kinds of health backgrounds do not understand this. Purposely cleansing, going on a juice fast, or eating more acid forming foods that add more stress to the body have a similar effect on the organs of elimination, which are already overloaded. This is especially true WITHOUT  the ingestion of an absorbing substance like Sodium Bentonite Clay. So, if you are going to fast, juice feast, water fast ingesting Sodium Bentonite Clay or using a Colon Cleansing Program [Ejuva or Rise and Shine] would be something to consider. For me it is imperative.

I hope what I have written here makes sense to those who read it. Cleansing is a word that is used widely today. It is used with little or no understanding the fact that the body is always cleansing and has its own protection system. We can either choose to help it out or hinder it once we know how it works. How the body heals is something that is not taught in school. Not in my schools, anyway.

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.
