UNIQUE HEALING WITHOUT DONNA PESSIN:THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON

CAUSE AND EFFECT

Maybe you have just found the Unique Healing Program, are a short or long term participant. Maybe you are someone who has completely, or partially bailed from The UHP ship. Whomever and wherever you are on your road to healing, this is a time of opportunity and growth. Growth can happen no matter what we are involved in. Whether it is starting Unique Healing, Traditional Medicine, or another “Alternative” Healing Program. Growth from any situation will happen by the way we make decisions, and not always by the decisions we make.

LET ME EXPLAIN

People make decisions from different mindsets. Confidence and pressure. Sometimes fear and desperation. When we do not take action life seems to make decisions for us. Relationships are one example. Did you leave or were you left? Sometimes one can be “dumped” and  go onto rock the world. There are a number of people that feel they got dumped by Donna Pessin. She closed down communication with her clients for an unknown period of time. Some of these people have come to realize they are actually better off. They feel that way even though the feeling of betrayal lingers. It is hard to be “left” by someone you wanted to leave in the first place. Someone who did not treat you so well. Life is 20/20 in hindsight.

FALSE PROMISES? OR, IS IT JUST HOW WE SEE IT?

I found The Unique Healing Program at a time where I had, for decades, diligently applied so many other forms of healing. All that and I was still functionally constipated. That irregularity was effecting my general health and showing up specifically in right hip joint pain. There was a list of other things, but that hip pain was screaming at me. Pain can save your life if you listen to it. Anyway, at a time when I was really fed up with what I was doing, I found Donna Pessin.

Ms. Pessin presents her program as a  One Stop – Last Stop solution to achieving a healed gut and body. I was pretty sure The Unique Healing Program would NOT be my last stop, but I believed it would elevate my stomach, intestines and other organs to a way better place. For me The UHP became a tool toward healing and not the blueprint. Donna Pessin sells her program as “the” blueprint. The Unique Healing Program, as it presently stands, did not work for me. I am talking two years down the line. I have met tens of people who tell me this is their experience, as well.

FALSE EXPECTATIONS

In order to work, every healing program needs to be tweaked and adjusted to the individual and their specific needs. As we all go along on our mission to heal we need to learn how to make these adjustments ourselves. That ability has to happen to succeed in healing. The idea that The Doctor, or anyone else, will heal us every step of the way has never really worked. People are released from the hospital after being cut and sewed up. Usually, if not always, given strong medications with a long list of side effects. A question: Is it then reasonable to expect more from Donna Pessin, or any other Alternative Health Professional when the bar is so low for Medical Doctors? Many of us want much more, but are often disappointment. This is a tough situation that only improves as we learn through trial and error what to do on our own. This can be rough going, or darn near impossible if you are very ill, with little energy and don’t know the ropes.

TRUSTING OUR GUT FOR REAL

Donna Pessin is not presently [and for quite some time] available for one on one consults. This has set a number of her clients/followers free. Is it her intention to unload people? Actions speak louder than words. Ms. Pessin’s decisions and the way they were made, were truly unprofessional. As unsavory as her exit, she has helped her followers way beyond what they could have imagined. This is if they are able and willing to see it that way. Being abandoned does not feel good, in any relationship.

The one thing that a healthy gut can lead to is hearing and trusting the inner voice. Sometimes known as trusting our gut. Knowing the difference between the fear / addiction voice [proliferated by poor gut health] and intuition, based on better gut and overall health, is a goal to consider.

NEXT STEP? MAYBE.

THE INGUINAL HERNIA: HEALING AND PREVENTING AN INGUINAL HERNIA

Why would someone have an Inguinal Hernia? Below I get into more detail of the location of the Inguinal Hernia. Also, bodily fluids and waste that gather there because of a complex maze these substances have to rise up [on the right side] and exit [on the left]. So, depending on the family health history and individuals health history, the body may not be that inherently strong. Then repetitive movement done under stress in sports, work outs, lifting for work, an activity done to release anger [exercise and sports are often used to vent, and this is not always done consciously] adds to creating a Hernia in this particular area. Sometimes when people love to do something they overdo it. Many sports today often stress one side. Dance is very often that way. Often dancers and choreographers have a stronger side and favor it. Using one leg over and over again in fencing, soccer, kicking in football, stance in baseball, high jump, skateboarding, and dance are some easily identifiable examples. I hope this makes sense in explaining how an Inguinal Hernia can begin.

A TAKE ON HOW THE BODY BREAKS DOWN

When the PH of our blood, urine, lymph, and other bodily fluids and waste measures highly acidic for years it is easier for health problems to become more frequent. Why? Because that acidic fluid that all our tissues are bathing in aids in breaking down the body and putting it in a position of defensiveness. We are always irritated. Our Immune System is then always in a defensive mode. This will also be reflected in our personality. It will influence how we see the world. We can feel attacked, paranoid and easily angered. Depending on how frequently a person sees a doctor, blood tests are taken, fear about being sick pervades. This knowingly or unknowingly determines the future of our health. One Physician  treating my father, after my dad had a stroke, took me aside and gave me advice I will never forget. He told me to keep my dad away from doctors that always want to run tests. Some people would cringe at this advice, but I knew exactly what he was saying. I do have to interject here that many doctors do run tests to protect themselves from lawsuits and create a paper trail that shows they were on top of things in case of a malpractice suit.

BACK TO THE INGUINAL HERNIA: RIGHT SIDE

A hernia is a weakening of the facial and deep layers of body tissue. I know first hand that strain or overuse is not the primary reason hernias form in the groin area. An Inguinal Hernia is located in the lower quadrant of the loins. It is an area on men and women where there are strong physiological and functional demands, not just structural. A gathering point for waste matter and other bodily fluids. On the right there is the Cecum and Appendix. Waste matter has to move up against gravity and when it does not, becomes impacted, the PH of the entire body, eventually takes a big hit. That right corner tissue becomes a weak spot. The Appendix has a similar reason for becoming stuck and sluggish. The rest of the GI Tract, Cecum and Appendix greatly effect one another due to location and function. When things are not moving, often beginning in childhood, a person is more inclined to have a hernia. I have treated two males under the age of 18 who were developing an Inguinal Hernia. They were both Olympic Trial Fencers, lunging on one leg repetitively. Their diet was poor and their stress level was great. Their coach was not interested in addressing the enormous difference in thigh circumference that was beyond apparent on the overworked lunging leg. It was criminal in my mind. All these kids wanted to do was please their coach and get to the  US Fencing Team Trials. In doing that they were creating some serious imbalances in their tissue.

INGUINAL HERNIA: LEFT SIDE

The left side of the loins is where the exit point of waste is located and it is a complex maze. If a person is aware of  problems with Digestion or Elimination  it will often be experienced in this lower left area. From Chronic Constipation to Loose Stools, all will show a build up of toxic waste that weakens the tissue. How can it be any other way? The waste sitting there, unable to exit, creates acidity that weakens the tissue. Also, the location of the Bladder puts an added pressure on the whole pelvic – groin area of the body in terms of Uric Acid building. If the rest of the body can not let go of waste in a timely way, the Bladder will be a highly stressed organ for helping to create some kind of Homeostasis. Not forgetting the involvement of the Kidneys here, but any means.

AND THE POINT IS…

If you have an Inguinal Hernia and want to heal it without a surgical procedure, have had a surgery or are planning to have a surgery it will only help to balance out your body’s PH. The time to start is now. It will not happen overnight. You can begin to do this by eating a diet that is more alkaline while taking something that absorbs old waste throughout the entire body. Yes, I am talking about Sodium Bentonite Clay and or Zeolite Clay. There are other clays that may help and here is one source to do some research. However, is is imperative to come up with a long term plan to absorb acidy body fluids and waste. Again, they have accumulated due to sitting around stagnating and  are very irritating and weakening to the entire organism.

Our body has an internal  protection plan to buffer an overly acidic PH. One part of that is taking minerals from our bones [Calcium is one] to buffer and balance out the building acids. This is not a long term plan for buffering for obvious reasons. Without intervention deep sickness occurs. An Inguinal Hernia is a cry for help. Things are just too acidic. irritated and breaking down.

WHAT DO YOU DO TO ABSORB AND ESCORT OUT THE ACIDIC WASTE MATTER?

Taking a substances such as Sodium Bentonite Clay and Calcium Citrate along with dietary changes keeps all our cells in a less acidic environment. A more Acid Bath is what eventually leads to Auto Immune Illnesses and all Diagnosed and Undiagnosed Illness and Discomfort. A balanced PH is the only way to heal. Adhesions that form throughout the body, especially in the Groin, deeply involve the Psoas. These are areas where Inguinal Hernia Surgery has placed screening material and often needs serious help. Adhesions can be made more flexible with Rolfing or other Structural Integration work, but it does hurt. The released acids [ Lactic and others] will just be reabsorbed if there is nothing to sop them up with. Also, these Adhesions will reform without the absorption of these acids and change in diet and lifestyle. Adhesions are a way for the body to protect itself and try to shore up the area, but in the end it causes more pain and stiffness. A kind of  mending that is not a long term plan.

I have been in contact with a few people who are grappling with an Inguinal Hernia. A Hernia in the groin area can be painful due to the pressure of waste build up, and the pressure that is put on this core area to stand, walk and bend. Annoying and painful, it is an undeniable wake up call. There is not much more medicine can do years after an Inguinal Hernia surgery to ease the pain, stiffness and inflexibility. More of the same mounts as waste builds. It is amazing what people are willing to accept from a Physician that would get an Alternative Practitioner the boot or worse. Lawsuit….

HERE ARE SOME PROGRAMS TO CHECK OUT TO HELP CREATE HEALING IN THE BODY:

The Body Ecology Diet. A book worth reading and a diet with MANY aspects worth exploring. The downside of The BED is that it is high in fermented foods and liquids that are very cleansing and tend to add to the acid load. No Sodium Bentonite Clay in this Protocol. Accompanied by SBC or some other clay, The BED could be the missing link and better vehicle for healing.

Ejuva Cleanse is one more balanced colon and whole body cleanse that can help absorb acids and create healing in the body. It can be done at a slow pace. The quality when I used it was very high. Worth checking out. Do not discount this product because of David Wolfe, spokesperson for the faulty Nutribullet, endorses it.

Dr. Fred Bisci PHD  has some very well earned wisdom during his 82 + years on the planet. His focus on creating whole body health by healing the GI Tract is solid.

The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. No, I do not get a dime for recommending The UHP. I have been on The Unique Healing Program for almost two years. Decades of searching brought me to try this program and it is most definitely, for me, been the missing link to healing my digestion and elimination woes. Lots of videos and free info on The UHP site.

Will add more as I think of it.

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.

DONNA PESSIN THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM: DIARY UPDATE

It has been a long while since I have written a post. One reason is because of my involvement in The Unique Healing Program. Due to the consistent changes in my physical and mental state I have read, edited, rewritten every one of my posts. In a few cases I have deleted the entire post. Why? Because doing this program has reaffirmed what I  observed about my health and those of others. This entails at least 30 years of personal and clinical work. At least.  The Unique Healing Program has changed my mind about what I hoped was true, and opened my mind to things I did not understand. A confusing road. I am daily reflecting on the time and money I have spent on education to help others and myself over the years.  Using my own body as a chemistry lab, past and present, is proving much of what Donna Pessin says to be true.

50 YEARS OF EATING =’S APPROXIMATELY 50 THOUSAND MEALS

In brief, I can say that so many of the dietary and therapeutic programs I took part in never got to the heart of what needed to be addressed. That deep issue is the amount of environmental toxins present in our water, air and earth.They  have built up in my tissues, organs, and blood over the past decades. The weak digestive system that I was born with, these toxins helped to further degrade. The use of large amounts of sodium bentonite clay taken orally, over a long period of time, escorts these toxic elements out through the gut. It does it in a way that colonics, enemas, juice fasting, water fasting, etcetera can and does not for a vast percentage of those who give them a try. Do I think these past steps were a complete waste of time? No, but they did bit heal my gut and  body. That I am very sure of.

SODIUM BENTONITE CLAY: FOOD GRADE

I was so perplexed by the use of so much clay on this program. I never had an easy time with colon cleanses such as Ejuva, Rise and Shine, Sonne. I felt more constipated and blocked and very frustrated. The crazy thing is that there was not enough clay, the right kind of herbs and proper direction to help me truly heal and  detoxify. I am so grateful that I opened my mind to taking so much clay. The colonic receiver and colon therapist inside me was opposed to the idea, but my body was saying go for it.

HEALTHCARE IS A BUSINESS

The Unique Healing Program really challenges the core beliefs of those involved all kinds of health movements, businesses, etcetera.  All the years and money spent. This alone can really keep the mind closed to a protocol like the Unique Healing Program.  These philosophies  that do not cure, prevent or eliminate illness will become clearer as time goes on. Programs based on the idea that diet can prevent and cure illness have already disproved themselves. The amount of toxic elements floating and deeply entrenched in our water, air and earth need more than organic raw or cooked food to cure the ingestion and accumulation of these elements in the human body.  I personally thought cleansing with colonics and a clean diet with digestive enzymes, food grade supplements and intermittent cleansing would eventually heal my constipation. It did not.

Some people who read this may assume that I probably did not eat cleanly enough, do enough cleansing, enemas, colonics and fasting. In years past, I would have thought the same thing if this was written by someone else. However, with all that I had done, I never got to the  point where I had regular, well formed, odorless, floating bowels, or just regular bowels period. That never happened after decades of all the above. In the end, it got me to Donna Pessin The Unique Healing Program and ultimately on the road to healing my gut and body.
