“Flu Shot Concerns”

image

At this time of the year, many individuals have either gotten sick for a few days or more. A lowered immune system tends to be the primary reason. In this brief blog, we discuss a few valuable pointers to consider regarding flu shot concerns.

Pointer #1: Get your immune system strong naturally before thinking about getting a shot! Getting a flu shot or vaccination mounts a STRESS on the immune system. Some individuals may actually get sick or experience a side effect from one or more ingredients from the shot, all because their immune system wasn’t READY for it. Improving Vitamin A, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C levels are the place to begin for building a strong immune system.

Pointer #2: Make sure you don’t have any gastro-intestinal problems if you decide to obtain the flu shot. Gastro-intestinal issues related to constipation, bloating, intestinal infection, etc. will DISTRACT your immune system, even when you are bombarded with air-borne pathogens or ingredients from a flu or vaccination shot. This type of situation can increase your likelihood of experiencing a negative side effect from obtaining the shot or getting sick from air-borne viruses.

Pointer #3: A systemic calcium deficiency or strontium deficiency may cause one’s immune system to over-react to exposure from ingredients in flu shots. This occurs as a compensation to conserve these minerals for other physiological processes, and MASSIVE inflammation may result. Check with your holistic physician to see if this deficiency applies to you.

Although we prefer individuals to avoid flu shots or vaccinations, it is important to know that there are things that you can do for a successful, healthy outcome if you decide to or are required to get the shot.

“Heart Health through Neptune Medicine”

image

With the beginning of a new year, and perhaps new desires, Neptune becomes the initial teacher and healer we must listen to for starting a new path. For us to be allowed to begin a new path, we must center and attempt to balance our heart HEALTH.

Consciousness and sentimental heart memory are the primary Cosmic drives that Neptune embodies. Think of an elderly grandma/grandpa that smacks the back of your head when you make a mistake, then kisses you on the cheek with love right after. THIS is a Neptune teacher!

Depending on the type of Source energy that works through us (as a part of One Source), the type of Neptune lesson to heal our heart will vary. Here are a few examples:

  • For Mother Earth people, focus on giving to those in need. This opens up the gallbladder meridian to restore a balanced energy flow (Qi).
  • For Sacred Heart people, focus on remembering to give compassion for your self. It is easy to forget about your own self-worth if your objective is to focus so much on others.
  • For Lost Dimensional people, focus on submitting to constructive “light building” feelings, such as listening to music that lifts you up, or movies that inspire you.
  • For Black Jaguar people, focus on surrounding yourself with nature, sunlight, and warmth. Life battles can alienate us from each other and nature; remind yourself that everything is connected.
  • For Universal people, focus on re-building your heart through diet alterations, replenishing nutrients, and resting appropriately. Biochemical imbalances can linger, even after attempting to balance the psyche through the above methods.
  • For True Cosmic people, remove the energetic disturbances directly affecting the heart (especially left ventricle)-liver-lung centers, and/or potential microbial pathogens associated with those energies. Then, utilize one or more of the above techniques to recover.

“Protein powder, or Food??”

image

In this short blog, we’ll present to you 3 factors to consider when supplementing with protein powder or substituting food with protein powder.

1) How healthy are your kidneys? When we break down protein, nitrogen containing by-products are produced and must be excreted through the kidneys. Too much protein at a given time, can create small amounts of damage to kidneys. And in time, this damage may allow for fungal or bacterial micro-organisms to infect these areas. Chronic kidney disease, kidney stones, or other complications may result decades later.

2) Small intestinal gut flora. If there are pathogenic organisms such as parasitic tapeworms or certain types of yeast strains occupying the small intestine, protein demand will continue to increase to fulfill your body’s needs and the microbe’s needs. Until those pathogens are removed via holistic methods, the amount of protein you get from food may not be enough.

3) Aerobic or Anaerobic training? Depending on the way one exercises, having an easy to assimilate form of protein can truly expedite healing of the tissues damaged in training. As a rule of thumb, if you finish your workout feeling near or completely exhausted, then protein powder may be the way to go. Otherwise, food in whole form will adequately satisfy what the body needs to recover.

“Blood type Diet or NOT?”

image

There are number of factors that can help determine what types of foods a person might respond best to. Read this short blog for more info!

1) Firstly, the health of the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine will be the deciding factor in what diet will benefit the person. If cells which allow for the production of stomach acid have become manipulated by viruses or other parasites, eating MEAT may become difficult or damaging to the person.

2) The next most important factor is the Genetic ability of the liver to detoxify various by-products that have been broken down in the small and large intestines. Seafood, carrots, dandelion greens, gluten contains grains, and citrus foods all break down into different components. The Liver’s detox pathways MUST have the correct genetic design to manage these components in a functional way. This is where generalized recommendations for one’s diet based on blood type may become an excellent initial guide! 

3) Methylation ability throughout the body becomes a close second to liver pathway design. If one’s ability to methylate B vitamins is compromised in various parts of the body, certain foods can become problematic. Those with an A blood type will need to remove grains and most legumes until the body can replenish it’s supply of activated B-vitamins. Choline supply may also be reduced, making the need to eat eggs in Type O individuals increase.

There are at least 10 or so other valuable factors involved with determined what diet will become ideal for an individual. To book an appointment and find out what diet would be healthiest for YOU, contact us at kp1111ge@gmail.com.

“Thanksgiving OVER-LOAD!”

image

There are 4 things to watch out for during Thanksgiving season! Read this short blog to prepare for your Thanksgiving holiday!!

1) Bloating, belching and abdominal discomfort usually accompany Thanksgiving day meals. Food combinations that aren’t a part of our everyday routine can create a digestive disturbance that can affect some for days or even weeks following. Lactobacillus plantarum can be extremely beneficial in preventing some of these unwanted symptoms (regarding these specific food combinations).

2) Massive fatigue, and Weight Gain! The specific food combinations are usually what create the sleepy after-effects of the meal but can be reduced through the use of Alpha-galactosidase enzyme supplementation combined with L-glutamine before the meal begins. This enzyme help can also ensure that the liver is supported to avoid fat storage.

3) Emotional HEART related disturbances are usually conjured up for many reasons during Thanksgiving. Besides historical feelings of conflict for this day, Family love, Friend love, Romantic love and even love for one’s self may be challenged during this season. Orange essential oil over the heart, Eucalyptus essential oil over the kidneys, and frankincense essential oil over the 3rd eye center can be a good general recommendation to prevent an ‘overly’ emotional state. (Check with your holistic doctor first before using oils or supplements.)

4) Low-back aggravations, hernias, or hip pain can occur do to the above reasons mentioned. Kidneys become overloaded with the work of detoxification and balancing the body’s energies. In alternative medicine, the kidney meridians and circuits directly affect low back, hip and abdominal musculature and spinal positioning. For the sake of avoiding unnecessary injury, be sure to allow ample REST for your kidneys, heart and liver to process for up to 2 days, BEFORE considering exercise. (Those with established kidney problems may need to even avoid a true thanksgiving day meal altogether!)

“Candida in the BRAIN”

If you suffer from FATIGUE, inability to FOCUS, or DEPRESSION, consider reading this to see if this applies to you or someone you may know!!!!

There are many strains of the fungus, known as Candida, that occupies our small and large intestine. In some cases, there are strains that can benefit us, regarding digestion and metabolism. Often times, more pathogenic strains feed off of excess sugar, alcohol, starch or aspartame that may have been consumed.

In most individuals, the design of the small intestine may be compromised when too much fungus and sugar is present during digestive processes. In a matter of seconds to minutes, the small intestine may become more permeable to particles in the GI tract. A situation known as “LEAKY GUT” occurs, and can allow fungus or food particles to pass into the blood stream.

Depending on the ability of the fungus (or other microbe) to evade the human immune system, it can travel through the blood stream into the vessels of the brain and begin infecting that area!!!! As a result, the infection may affect our Behavior, Energy levels, or Awareness levels.

This doesn’t mean it is a life-threatening infection, but rather a low-grade, chronic infection that negatively affects your quality of life. Contact us at kp1111ge@gmail.com to learn more, or schedule an appointment.

“Large Intestine TOXICITY”

Under-hydration (not drinking enough water), eating too many simple carbohydrates (like Sugary snacks), excessive alcohol intake, and/or over-EXERCISING can create toxicity in the large intestine!

Here are some other common reasons for the FATIGUE that comes with this type of toxicity:

1) Inadequate supply of ACTIVATED B-vitamins available to use in the liver pathways. Check with a Holistic physician to see if you have an under or over methylation problem to know WHICH type of pre-activated B-vitamin you should supplement with.

2) When parasites dominate the corners of the large intestine, it allows for manipulation of the bowel FLOW. More thyroid hormones are needed to keep up with metabolic processes of cell renewal in the colon. Major fatigue will occur until those parasites are REMOVED entirely.

3) Competitive environments where you sense energies around you attempting to challenge your SELF-WORTH will energetically create sluggish flow in the large intestine. Lymphatic drainage is affected the most when these emotional stressors become too great. Take a break from competitive atmospheres, slow down, BREATHE, and seek your own healing environment in which to recover.

If you have trouble reducing this toxicity on your own, contact us at kp1111ge@gmail.com
