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.

PERILS OF HEALNG: LOW BODY FAT

When I started The Unique Healing Program in late December of 2012 I met, through this blog, people who were finding some level of symptom diminishment that I was not. A number of these people were able to consume large amounts of clay and seemed to be okay with it. Others, like myself, felt blocked up and crazy from it. This protocol that Donna Pessin was selling definitely had big holes in it. One stop shopping for healing with her products alone was not working for me. I had to augment her program, much to her disapproval, with enemas, colonics and much lower doses of clay than she prescribed for success.

At times discouraged,  I came to the conclusion that maybe I was dredging up some deeper seated toxins because of all the past cleansing work I had done. Something I have written about extensively in past blog posts. Was this one reason that my symptoms were so much more potent than some of the others people on Unique Healing? I was pretty sure this was one component. One thing I am more certain of, those who were NOT highly symptomatic had more body fat than I did. That fat – cellulite was absorbing toxins and acting as a protector – buffer of sorts.

So, this was constantly coming up. Why were some of these people less reactive to the use of clay and herbs [Unique Healing] than I was? Well, I knew I had a  much longer history of intense cleansing  regimens. My daily exposure to mold as a child and the removal of mercury fillings, without the proper  dental protocol, put a heavy tax on my immune system. There were other factors as well. I was pretty sure I had dodged many sickness bullets through all the efforts I had put in over the years. In truth, I appeared to be in much better health and shape than I actually was. Much of that was accomplished – if that is an accomplishment – with a very simple clean diet,  herbal concoctions, colonics, enemas, exercise, yoga, and much more. It was not my goal to live my life on a constant road of cleansing, but I was willing to do what I needed to in order to heal, live, earn a living, and not end up in the Traditional Medical System.

For years I was the person that ate very simply but did not loose weight. I was not overweight. I did often think that anyone else would be way thinner if they were eating a diet as clean, all the juice feasting, colon cleanses, colonics,etcetera. All this was done to have a healthier gut with regular bowel movements and better energy. None of these goals was fully actualized through these decades of efforts.

WHAT DID HAPPEN?

It seems clear now that I was not able to get to the deep-seated triggers that plagued me in a significant way. I am talking about Heavy Metals, Candida and other Parasites. My efforts did help me in the short term to a certain extent, but chipped away at body fat and other precious minerals after awhile. So, here I am without the body fat that is helpful in absorbing the often irksome, frustrating symptoms of cleansing. These densely dehydrated toxins that get released when they are tapped into. Without the body fat to migrate to, the toxins enter the bloodstream and a person can be much more symptomatic. This is all very personal to each individual and their circumstances.

I am reminded of a dentist who was deeply effected by the toxins of his profession. He told me once that cleansing alone is not healing. How to find the right protocol for each of us is the dilemma. It is not unsolvable, but can be tricky depending on what each individual has been exposed to. More later.

DETOXING: INTUITION OR ADDICTION?

DISCERNING OUR TRUTH FROM OUR ADDICTION

No matter who is advising me I always want to keep my intuition in check about what I am doing. Honing my intuition is something I value. If a person is not in good health their intuition can be greatly hindered, or blinded by addiction. In brief, feeling like eating something that is not helpful to my condition is definitely coming from a place of addiction. The organisms / toxins are making the decision and not the person whose primary interest is healing. If I am honest with myself I know the difference.

In the moment it can be easy to justify what we want to eat, or do.Taking the time to ask myself what part of me is making this decision is of primary importance.  Having the presence of mind to do this takes some discipline. A craving for something hot and spicy as a dominant taste in a meal, for me at this time, would not be a good choice.

STOP THE GURU DEPENDENCY. TO HEAL IT  NEEDS TO BE A PARTNERSHIP

I respect the opinions of the people who advise me, but it is important not to be totally reliant on them. Getting healthier makes that possible, but that takes time. Keep asking the questions that are uncomfortable. It takes trial and error, but a stronger character is built from becoming our own guru. My experience. Maybe yours, too?

People often start chipping away at the person who is advising them when their sickness wants to prevail. Finding fault with the person or team that is advising us is a trap that is easy to fall into. No one is perfect, but sometimes those advising us need to be challenged. Sometimes the fear its that we need the  person advising us more than they need us. I have felt this way and it is not an empowering feeling. In the depths of my soul I know that over thinking, analyzing, and ruminating is part of not being in good health.

DETOXING WITH CLAY PACKS: PARASITES AND HEAVY METALS

I started using clay packs  therapeutically about 10 years ago. I have used LL’s Magnetic (Eoviromedica) Clay special formulas, plain Sodium Bentonite and Calcium Bentonite Clay. Since using Turpentine / Pine Oil Therapeutically I am finding these packs are much more effective. How? I  pack my abdomen with clay. I then cover the pack with plastic wrap that I get from the Health Food Store. The clay becomes very hot after awhile and my symptoms begin to lessen. What really works well  to cover the clay are the thin green bags from Whole Foods. I cut the bottom out of and then slice in half. The bag opens to open large open sheet. These bags adhere well and stay on while I am doing things around the house, sleeping, etcetera. I may use one or two pieces of Scotch Tape to help keep in place.

Clay is messy, but it is worth it. I would rather deal with clay than the mess of Castor Oil, which I also use at different times. Castor Oil is an amazing healing agent but extremely viscous. It is almost impossible to get out of most any fabric, especially anything synthetic. Sometimes Castor Oil packs, or slathering it on for periods of time is extremely helpful for. They have different effects.

I do find that Clay Packs – along with the Turpentine Therapy – has helped me diminish some of my symptoms that are obviously hot in nature. Inflamed conditions stem from the gut and manifest hroughout the body.

Clay alone for me has not been a panacea. Not any one thing is, but it has been an essential component in healing. Jennifer Daniels, MD has been a knowledgeable rock in directing me on the use of clay for absorption of toxins. Again, I have been using clay packs on my head, gut, full body. I have taken foot baths and full baths with LL’s Magnetic Clay (now EnviroMedica) for a good number of years. I am way beyond certain that without the proper use of Turpentine (and other ingredients) I would have had a reduction of inflammation when using clay.  In the past clay has been helpful in the short term. I am certain that without the use of Turpentine-Pine Oil,  the deeper effects of clay would not have been found. For someone else it may not be Turpentine – Pine Oil, but another strong Anti-bacterial / Anti – parasitic agent.

Pasts posts at this blog site document my journey way, way before Unique Healing, Kalcker Protocol and now with Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD. Turpentine – Pine Oil may not be for you, but finding what works is essential. Clay is a time tested absorbent of toxins and worth the time and effort.

Here is a list of some clay sources that I have found of good quality:

Aztec Healing Clay – I and others I know have used  this clay internally, even though they say on the label not to. Easy to find here in the USA.

Best Bentonite – low price and have used externally.

LL’s Magnetic Clay-EnviroMedica– excellent products and very helpful staff.

Eyton’s Earth – Clay Disciples on Facebook – Jason, the owner, sells a trustworthy array of clays that he backs up with great knowledge.

PARASITES: FAULT FINDING OCD

JUST CAN’T SEE THE FORREST FOR THE TREES

If I look out a window at a beautiful view and what I first notice is the spots and imperfections on the window, all the yard work that needs to be done, it is cloudy, etcetera that is a basic recipe for unhappiness. Looking out a window at any sight and finding what is beautiful is the answer. I feel the way we see things says so much about how and who we are. I have mentioned this to people over the years and they agree, but often they also  have this trait of looking for what is wrong, and do not realize it. It is an ingrained habit that makes them feel safe. Looking for what is wrong is tiring.

ON THE OTHER HAND…

There is a time to take care of things, like a dirty window, a yard that needs tending to, hair that needs to be combed. However, when what is wrong becomes the focus and  brings up a compulsive need to take care of things with unhealthy immediacy, that is not a good sign.  Things on the outside and how we view and deal with them is a good barometer for the condition of our Immunes System. It has been an accurate barometer for my own. When were feel overwhelmed internally (an Immune System that is burdened), the need to control the outside often becomes a mission that has no end to it. The source of inevitable unhappiness and frustration.

ONE MORE COMMON EXAMPLE OF OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE BEHAVIOR

Not so long ago, at the home of a friend who had just moved to a new location, they started the tour by showing me everything that they felt was wrong with the place.Things I would never notice. They had to be pointed out. Their behavior made sense to me. Their health is pretty normal for the average person over 40. Aches, pains, infertility issues, poor digestion, dark circles under eyes, overweight, and some crazy meddling habits in the lives of family and others. I had to ask myself what is there here for me to learn? A whole lot! All I could do was offer some compassion and recognize how my own focus on what is wrong was not healthy. Whether it was as strong as theirs did not matter. Anyway, maybe it was as bad or worse. My willingness to address it and not make them the sick one was my saving grace.

SO, WHERE AM I GOING WITH THIS?

The point of my writing this is that in my home as a child it was important to look out for what was wrong as a form of self preservation, in order to stay on top of things, not let them degrade fall apart. It is a protective approach that gets in the way of living and makes life very defensive and not much fun. Especially if a person does not have the means to have things the way they want them. The way they think they need to be. Even if a person has the ways and means to have things as they want they often live in fear of loosing that ability. It is a way of thinking and being that sucks the joy out of living.

TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. OKAY MAYBE MORE THAN TWO…

Poor health bubbling up inside can take on many faces. A person can be slob, obsessed with perfection, or alternate between the two. The behavior can take on different faces. The point is that balance can  be found by improving our immune systems, but is it the entire solution? I don’t think so. In the long term, I feel certain it is a necessary component to deep change. An Immune System Overhaul will inevitably open to a world of challenging and uncomfortable situations. Not taking the road of Traditional Medicine is very challenging to us, our families, society in general. Challenges that are emotionally, financially, spiritually testing. Questioning our living, relationship, and work situations.

HELP COMES IN DIFFERENT FORMS

Healing an Auto Immune Illness, a Parasite Infestation always needs help on an emotional – spiritual level. My experience is that they go hand in hand. If not addressed on both counts, physically and emotionally, the pain and suffering will keep coming back and hitting us in the face. Addictions to refined foods, alcohol, drugs, sex, and meddling in the lives of others (just to name a few) will return if not dealt with on an emotional level. This constant reminder that change needs to happen is either a bummer, or an invitation to be healthy in every way. In other words, self reflection – some kind of therapy is needed.

For Auto Immune Health help Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD

One form of emotional healing that can be self applied is Emotional Freedom Technique /  EFT. The Tapping Solution is one resource to investigate to learn more about EFT. Rue Hass has a site that offers her own interpretation of self healing. These are 2 that have helped me.

INTESTINAL DRAWING FORMULA: HEALTH FORCE

A CHARCOAL PLUS TOXIN ABSORBING COMBO OF INGREDIENTS

I have used Health Force  Intestinal Drawing Formula at times over the past 12 or more years. Until working with Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD I found it clogging. I also used Sodium Bentonite Clay while doing The Unique Healing Program. I can not compare the use of Clay with The Health Force Intestinal Drawing Formula. Also the use of Dr. Daniels Vitality Capsules are very effective and, for me, better working than The Unique Healing Herbal Bowel Formula. The Drawing Formula has many ingredients that are specifically designed to heal digestion and elimination.

If you have been making your own Powder Formula for absorption of toxins, candida, parasites, etcetera the Health Force Intestinal Drawing Formula could be a good back up, or replacement. It is worth giving it a try.
