Simple Health Rules to Live By

Posted by: | Comments (0)

There are a few simple rules I live by that have kept me functional despite multiple diagnoses (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, GERD, osteoporosis, IBS–all of which seemed to be kept at bay):

1. Eat real food. And preferably, something that is live or raw at every meal.

Though the Internet has poo-poohed Reich’s ideas, it makes sense to me that live foods would have a life force in them, and I don’t see how it can hurt to eat something with the life force in it at every meal.

Besides, so many of the real breakthroughs in science and other arenas come from those who “think outside the box.” First their ideas are ridiculed, until more and more evidence starts to confirm them. Finally, their ideas are accepted and moved “into the box”–until there is another paradigm shift from others who “think outside the box.” (Unless, of course, the powers that be who don’t want any other narratives but theirs to prevail use that power to “deplatform” and silence those who dare think outside the box. But we haven’t seen that happen, have we?)

Get some sunlight every day, even if it’s through one of those happy lights. Cut the blue light in the evening.    

3. Live within your circadian rhythm. Every organ has its own little clock, and there is a master clock in your brain. Learn to know your own rhythms, especially optimal times for waking and getting to bed.

The HOLOS Balance devices really helps with this. It’s my all-time favorite wellness device, and in my opinion, better than anything else that’s way more expensive. Find out more here, and get 15% off if with this link.

 

4. Heal your heart issues. Start with your fears, and the lies you believe.

5. Practice gratitude. If you haven’t already, start keeping a gifts journal.

Last week, I attended three days of an online business retreat that I thought, at the time, was fantastic.

I experienced transformation. I got ideas. I connected with people.

And it threw me into a massive 4-day healing response.

It was, apparently, too much, too fast.

The next day after the retreat, I was the usual Sunday tired.

On Monday, however, I was in pain. More stress hit when I had to drive my husband to a dental appointment in the teeming rain, where I couldn’t see in front of me and I was flanked by trucks also navigating construction barrels on the two highways I traversed.

Tuesday the pain got worse. It seemed to move all around my body. (I learned from a trauma expert that this can be a sign of trauma—trapped energy stored in the body.) I slept poorly that night.

Wednesday I could barely move, I was so tired and in pain. I rescheduled a client appointment–something I think I’ve only done two or three times in the past 13 years of coaching. (I’m nothing if not dependable!)

Are you concerned about bone health?

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, it is estimated that worldwide, 200 million women suffer from osteoporosis. In addition, it is estimated that 1 in 3 women over age 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as well as 1 in 5 men. In the United States, it is estimated that 10 million people have osteoporosis, and another 44 million have low bone mass, which puts them at increased risk for developing osteoporosis.

My endocrinologist, who is responsible for my osteoporosis (he told me the medication for thyroid can cause bone loss, which is why he had to monitor my bone density), gave me some dire statistics about how many people die within a year of a hip fracture. (Why would he tell me this? Medical fear-mongering. . .)

However, the truth is, not all people with osteoporosis will fracture a bone, and not all people who have a hip fracture will die!

Especially if you’re doing all you can to increase and guard your bone health.

That’s why I’m recommending the MORE Natural Approaches to Osteoporosis & Bone Health 2.0 Summit, airing March 27-April 2, 2023 (encore weekend April 8-9).

I attended the first bone health summit by Margie Bessinger, and bought the excellent program. In the 50+ new interviews of this year’s summit, she and others will explore:

  • The root causes of bone loss

  • Safe exercises (with demonstrations) to strengthen and protect bones

  • IMPORTANT exercise guidelines (+ dangerous exercises to avoid!)

  • Nutrition and supplements for strong, healthy bones

  • Two powerful cooking demonstrations of bone healthy meals + kitchen tips

  • Fall prevention tips + movement practices for balance

  • The impact of stress on bone health + stress reduction strategies

  • How increased happiness can help protect your bones and your health

  • Advanced topics, like when to use medication, oxalates, parathyroid issues, MCAS and mold

  • And more!

Osteoporosis and bone health summit

Why attend this important health event?

Your host, Margie Bissinger, began working as a physical therapist with patients with osteoporosis over 25 years ago. These patients were told to exercise to help their condition, but were without guidance. To her dismay, many individuals were performing exercises that actually increased their risk of spinal fractures.

This inspired her to develop a wealth of strategies that have allowed thousands of people to improve their bone strength and live their lives without all the worries … and with more vitality and happiness than they ever knew was possible.

She’s here to inspire you with her expert guidance and wisdom.

Yes, you truly have the means to get started on better health today!

>>I’ll see you online at MORE Natural Approaches to Osteoporosis & Bone Health 2.0 when you register now!

Note: When you register for MORE Natural Approaches to Osteoporosis & Bone Health 2.0, you’ll also unlock early-access interviews, complimentary guides and helpful eBooks about building strong bones and living your most resilient life! Here’s one on exercise that I thought was very helpful.

The Science of Prayer

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Do you pray?  Have you seen some pretty amazing answers to prayer?

I have. Prayer is a big part of my life. I’ve always known it works (though I don’t get everything exactly as I pray for), but the scientist in me always wondered if there is an explanation for how it works that’s outside of religion.

And perhaps there is. It’s all connected to the quantum field.

What’s the quantum field?

A quantum field is a theoretical concept that helps us understand how particles behave at the smallest scales in the universe. Imagine that the universe is like a giant, constantly shifting, vibrating fabric. This fabric is made up of tiny units of energy called particles (the threads, as it were), and each type of particle has its own unique energy field.

Quantum fields are the mathematical description of these energy fields, which fill all of space and time. They are constantly fluctuating and interacting with one another, creating particles that come into existence and then disappear again. It’s all about energy and information. What looks to be matter, is really energy vibrating at a low enough rate that we can perceive it with the senses.

The fascinating thing about these particles is that they do not exist in a definite state until they are observed or measured. Instead, they exist in a state of superposition, which means that they can be in multiple states at once.

This reminds me of some words that dropped into my mind out of nowhere one day: “All perspectives exist in the quantum field. Choose the perspective that leads to gratitude, joy, and peace.”

When we pray, we put out attention on a particular outcome, which already exists in the quantum field as a potentiality. Our very prayer (observation) allows that particle to “manifest” in the physical world.

Then there is the idea of quantum entanglement.

In quantum entanglement, two energy “particles” interact with each other, and there is a full download of information. They become “entangled,” so that each “particle” instantaneously possesses the same energy information as the other, and both experience the same state.

This is mentioned in The Healing Code, referencing an experiment where two strangers met briefly, then were put in Faraday cages (through which no outside electromagnetic energy can pass). The experimenters found that when they shined a light in the eyes of one of the men, the pupils of the other man constricted just as if the light were shining in his eyes at that moment, though he was in that Faraday cage some distance away and no light was actually being shined in his eyes.

That’s the thing about quantum entanglement: distance and time mean nothing. It appears to violate the laws of classical physics, which dictate that information cannot travel faster than the speed of light. In the case of entangled particles, information seems to be transmitted instantly, regardless of the distance between them.

Let’s translate all this to prayer. If God is the creator of this quantum field, and exists within and outside of it as well (I don’t think God is the quantum field itself, but he created it and sustains it), and everything is energy, we too are energy. We are electrical beings, and we can interact on many different levels both with each other, and with God.

Prayer is interaction on this non-physical, energetic level. We can get “entangled” with a certain desire that we present to God, uniting our intention with God’s, and that makes things happen in the physical world, which is just a certain manifestation of energy.

Of course, God always has veto power. He is in charge of what gets manifested: only that which is His sovereign will, governed by His love and infinite wisdom. (Thank God for that!)

We can also get “entangled” with another person and their need, and present that to God.

Important to note about prayer: it must be activated by a certain kind of energy, namely faith.

When Jesus healed on earth, he almost always linked it to faith: “Your faith has made you well.” The person believed that Jesus could heal, or at least that he might, and that was all that Jesus needed.

Remember the man who asked Jesus to heal his demonized son, and said to Jesus, “I believe; help my unbelief”? (Mark 9:24)  Jesus said we only need faith the size of a mustard seed, the smallest of seeds, but if we plant it in the soil of God’s power, that’s enough to “move mountains.”

I love that science is now “explaining” things that were revealed thousands of years ago in religion. You don’t have to know how to build a highway to drive on it, but you do have to know a few rules of the highway to use it effectively and safely. We don’t need science to explain prayer in order to pray, but it’s wonderful to know that science supports what we already knew from spiritual teachings.

All truth is God’s truth, after all. True science always reveals something more of God’s ways.

If this topic interests you and you want to know more, I think you’ll really like the book, Quantum Glory: The Science of Heaven Invading Earth by Phil Mason. It presents the science of quantum physics in the light of Scripture. I kept having to put it down to take in the wonder of it all, and give thanks and praise to the Creator who set things up so amazingly.

Hidden Stressors-Part Four-toxins

Posted by: | Comments (0)

In this series on hidden stressors, I’ve mostly focused on the emotional aspects.

For many of us, this is the kind of stress that’s easiest to hide, especially if we’ve grown up with Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN), or are high on the sensitivity spectrum.

Another reason I’ve focused on the emotional, is emotional issues can predispose us to being more vulnerable to yet another hidden source of stress: toxins.

All of us are subject to this hidden physical stress.

Toxins lurk in our food, water, air, cosmetics, household cleaners, even fabrics.

They also lurk in the energy around us, in the form of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) and dirty electricity.

I don’t think I have to go into detail about all this. No doubt you’re aware of it, and may feel a little helpless about what to do about it all.

However, we are not helpless at all. There is one main thing we can do to keep healthy, and that is to focus on the immune and nervous systems. Read More→

As a wrap-up to my series on Hidden Stressors, I put together a list of things I use to either mitigate the effects of toxins, or support the immune system. Note that I am very picky about what I recommend. (Here’s my criteria.)

This list is not comprehensive, it’s just what I’ve used and found effective.

Also, in many cases I am an affiliate for said product, and will receive a commission if you buy from my links. (For which I thank you. It helps me to provide this newsletter and other resources for free.) You don’t pay more for using my links. Read More→

“That Doesn’t Work for Me . . .”

Posted by: | Comments (2)

Have you ever read (or heard) something that sounded like great wisdom, great advice . . .

and you try it and it doesn’t work for you?

Then you think, There must be something wrong with me.

I just read some advice about how to feel better when you’re feeling down. The writer called her sponsor and said she was upset about something. The sponsor told her, ‘Get over yourself and go find someone to help.”

The person took the advice, and felt better, she said.

Maybe this works for some people, like her. But for me, as a Highly Sensitive Person who also grew up with Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN), it’s all wrong. (If you’re not sure if these apply to you, take the free assessments here.)

Breathing Technique to Stop Anxiety

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Recently I watched a video presentation by Ari Whitten, on “Breathing for Energy” (replay here), which was, as is usual for him, excellent. (I have his Energy Blueprint program.)

Ari shared a number of breathing techniques, along with the surprising news that deep breathing is actually not good for you. Deep breathing does not oxygenate the blood, as is commonly believed. Ari explains the interaction between carbon dioxide and oxygen, and how oxygen actually gets delivered to your cells.

He also explains why we must breathe through the nose, rather than the mouth. Nasal breathing activates nitric oxide, which provides multiple health benefits, including killing virus particles that can lead to respiratory infections.

Most of us over-breathe. Optimal breathing is actually: Read More→

Recently I got together with three other women who are all as passionate as I am about living an Aligned Life. We explored the deeper meaning of health, home, money & marketing.

We had a blast.

Our lively discussion focused on what Alignment with our deepest soul values looks like in various areas of our lives: health, home, marketing, and money. How can we break negative cycles and redefine each of these areas according to who we are, not how anyone else says we should be?

I talked about “Healing the Unexamined Life,” by which I mean a life ruled by unhealed heart issues rather than Alignment with our True Selves. If you’ve ever struggled with how to present energy healing to someone to help them understand what you do with The Healing Codes, this will give you ideas!

Vanessa Redford took the idea of Alignment into our homes to define “the alchemy of sacred spaces,” showing how we can set up our environments to reflect and support who we really are. It doesn’t require an outside designer or a lot of money, either!

Angela Matthews shed light on how we can heal financial trauma for a “ridiculous flow” of abundance. If you’ve ever thought, “I’m not an investor, I can’t do that”–Angela may well change your mind!

April Gregory talked about how “branding” is really a reflection of who you are. We are all our own “brand,” whether we work in our own business or for a company. Here’s how to shine in all your true brilliance to attract just whom you’re meant to serve.

Honestly, this discussion was a huge blessing for me. Not only did I discover a new way to share about The Healing Codes, but one of my goals (before I met Vanessa) was to transform my home. Another goal (before I met Angela) was to learn how to invest wisely my recent inheritance. And as I am being led in new directions in my work, new expression is required—i.e., branding (hello April!).

Not to mention I got to dip my toe further into video, and connect with some fabulous women. (It gets lonely being a soloprenueur, you know?) For me anyway, this Roundtable, which just sort of “happened” unexpectedly, was one of those “abundant gifts” I see coming from the gracious hand of God.

That’s what living Aligned is all about. When you’re Aligned with Your Divine DesignTM, you always get what you need, when you need it—often in surprising ways. How wonderful is that?

I don’t know about you, but the events of the past several years have given me quite a case of “emotional inflammation.”

I’ve been writing about “emotional inflammation” and how these troubling times can literally affect us physically. The negative energy is all around us, and we can’t escape it.

In the past few years, it’s only gotten worse, it seems. I’m sure I don’t need to delineate the detailsof what I’m talking about.  Even if you limit your news intake, as I do, you still can’t avoid the negative energy all around.

For some of us, especially if we have the trait of High Sensitivity, the energy is palpable: we feel it in our bodies.

One client said recently she sensed a “dark energy cloud” around her. Yep, that’s a good way to describe Emotional Inflammation.

Authors Dr. Lise Van Susteren and Stacey Colino say in their book, Emotional Inflammation, that it’s a state “not unlike post-traumatic stress disorder, but one that stems from simply living in today’s tumultuous world.”

That book was published in March 2020–right before “all this” became worse. It’s even more relevant now. Read More→
