Dring Water

 

 

 

Dr. Masaru Emoto devoted his life helping other learn to use

prayer and blessing to improve their lives.

 

Dr. Emoto was fascinated with water and wondered if there were

methods of expressing difference in the nature of water.

 

He knew that water from a natural spring was better for you than

tap water or stagnant water.

 

And does water have messages for us.  Could we develop ways

to receive those messages from water.

 

Dr. Emoto developed a process in which he would freeze drops of

water and take photographs of individual water crystals that

formed.  He found that his theory was correct; like snowflakes,

very water crystal is unique.  But he learned much more than that.

 

Dr. Emoto found that you could tell much about the nature of the

water by photographing it in this way, and more importantly, that,

as human beings, we ca change the nature of water in many

ways.  Water truly does have powerful messages for us.

 

One of the first things that Dr. Emoto learned was that all water

does not form beautiful crystals.  He tested top water from around

the world and found that tap water does not form water crystals.

Stagnant or polluted water does not form water crystals either, but

forms unpleasant, deformed frozen structures.  Rainwater, water

from clean streams and rivers, water from glaciers, and water

from holy places around the world form beautiful crystals when

frozen.

 

Then he wondered if we, as human beings, can change the

nature of water, so he tried many techniques to test this.  Dr.

Emoto found that if he played beautiful music in the presence of

tap water, it would then make beautiful frozen crystal formations.

He also leaned that the written word changed the water.  Dr.

Emoto taped paper strips on bottles of tap water and then

photographed the frozen water.  He found that words such as

“Thank you” and “I love you”, cause the tap water to form beautiful

crystals.  Words such as “You make me sick,” or You are a fool,”

caused ugly, distorted crystals or no crystals at all.  Dr. Emoto

then found that we cause tap water to form beautiful frozen water

crystals simply by praying for the water, by sending it loving

thoughts, and by blessing it, like YOU should be blessing your

food before you eat.

 

YOU can learn to use prayerful intent to put beneficial energies

into your body, into substances, such as food and water, into

objects, such as jewelry, and into your living environment.  You

can bless things with unique energy vibrations as defined by

 

YOUR INTENT.

YOU can also change detrimental energies into beneficial

energies, all with the power of prayer and blessing.

 

Start YOUR blessings with water, food, and even your car with

The powerful INTENT.

How powerful is water in YOUR life?

Focusing on a Moment of Joy

 

 

 

 

If YOUR body is not in alignment, it can cause all sorts of

Problems:

Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain

Foot, knee, hip, and back injuries

Headaches

Stiffness

Fatigue

Muscle atrophy and weakness

Difficulty breathing

Digestion issues

Impingement a nerve compression

Sciatica

Carpal tunnel syndrom

Just a note:  my body got out of alignment when I did not go to

the Doctor when I sprained my ankle and eventually had to have

both hips replaced.  So do take note that it does happen when

body is not in alignment

To solve the problem, you first need to pinpoint the cause.  Most

Postural deviations occur because the muscles that work to hold

A joint in place are imbalanced.  One muscle group will be too

Tight and the opposing muscle group will be too loose or weak.

Here are 5 things to helps keep body aligned

  1. Work on your posture

Pelvis, rib cage and skill are aligned on top of each other

  1. Do exercises that promotes stabilization

Strengthen core muscles of back and abdomen

  1. Practice yoga

Promotes healthy spine and efficient movement

  1. maintain a healthy weight

overweight puts stress on joints and muscles

  1. consider chiropractic care

working on spinal alignment

 

3 Exercises that will help alignment:

  1. Upper back and shoulders;

Standing arm circles

This exercise engages the shoulder muscles, which, in turn

Helps to stabilize and strengthen the muscles of the mid-

Spine, resulting in less low-back pain.

Stand straight, feet hip width apart.  Raise your arms so they

Are extended out to your sides at shoulder level.  Palms up

Place the fingers into the pad of each hand, thumbs pointed

Behind you.  Squeeze the shoulder blades squeezed and

And your arms raised at your sides, rotate both of your arms

Backward in a circle of about six-inch circumference.  One

Set of 40 circles.  Then, palms down, thumbs pointed

Forward in a six-inch circle.  One set of 40 circles

 

  1. Mid-spine:

Statiic back knee pillow squeeze

This exercise promotes pelvic stability by supporting the

shoulders and spine as you engage the pelvic muscles and

extend the mid-spine.

Lie on your back with your legs up over the seat of a chair.

 

Place a pillow between your knees, and hold it with your inner

Thighs.  Extend your arms out to sides at 45 degrees with

Palms up.  Gently ssqueeze the pillow with knees aand hold 1

Second, kepping upper body and abdomen relaxed.  3 sets

Of 20 squeezes.

 

  1. For the pelvis airbench

Promotes proper function of hips and stabilizes the pelvis.

Stand with your back against a wall with your feet and knees

Hip-width apart.  Walking your feet away from the wall about

1-1/2 feet while sliding body down to a seated position

pressing lower back against the wall.  Allow arms to hand

down to side.  Keep weight on heels.  Hold the seated position

for 1-2 minutes

 

These are relatively simple and fast exercises to keep your body

In alignment.  Keep doing these and set up to do these 3 -4 times

a week and your alignment will stay forever

YOU and Energy

As you will have noticed from reading the blogs on this

website there are several types of energy in YOUR body,

mind and spirit.

 

Energy from your body that makes everything work together

to produce energy and fuel that helps your body function

at the highest level possible – helping you to exercise, and

give you stamina.  This type of energy comes partly from your

thyroid and the fact that it is working at the highest level

possible.  Blood type 0 has a high propensity to having thyroid

problems – so make sure your thyroid has enough iodine (I use

nascent iodine) and that is after 30 years of having thyroid

problems and not knowing how important iodine is).

But, the other energy comes from energy flowing throughout

YOUR body and extends beyond your body and probably from

science what Shamans have known for ever mixes with the

energy from other around you and the whole universal

energy.

So that energy comes from how healthy your body is and how

it flows throughout your body.   And the higher the energy level

of hertz the better energy flows up and down, and in and out so

keeping the PH level and energy flowing it is always for the

betterment of YOU.

 

It is up to YOU to keep the energy and make sure YOUR body

Is kept healthy and high on good organic food, and by

Exercising to keep everything running at the top level of

Energy YOU can.

It is about YOU and it will only happen because of YOU.

Do you have the courage to find out?

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS OF YOU?

 

It takes courage and time to get YOU into the healthy

And happy shape so you can age well.

YOU are extraordinary – I am sorry YOU have to prove that

everyday.

YOU have to know your body, mind and spirit so that YOU

Know how and what makes YOUR body run at it’s highest

Level and best maintained function.  YOU will not know that

By listening to well-intentioned family, friends, and any other

Environment you are in.

IT IS ABOUT YOU KNOWING YOU.

Do not worry about what family and friends think of you.

YOU are on a MISSION:

TO FIND OUT;

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

 

That takes time and effort on YOUR part because YOUR

BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT NEEDS TO BE BALANCED

And you need to know what power your sub-consciousness can

Sub-conscious mind can provide the answer if you put in the time

It is all powerful, provides the energy you need, provides the

Creativity you need so you know:

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

It is a daily walk with SELF – and of course, YOUR Higher Power

that has connected everything from the universe to the little lady

bug.

 

You would not be here, at this website, on this day, and at this

 

Time if YOU did not want to find out about

WHAT LIFE EXPECTS FROM YOU

YOU will build your own TOOLBOX of  SELFhood so that you will

know:

 

WHAT LIFE EXPECT FROM YOU

high protein, low carb dietWhen you go to buy foods that are marked “organic” you need to

do your research on what the FDA qualifies as “organic”?

Revised rules went into effect on Oct. 21, 2002 and the

Latest USDA definition states:

Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of

renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to

enhance environmental quality for future generations.  Organic

meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that

are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.  Organic food is

produced without using most conventional pesticides; petroleum-

based fertilizers or sewage sludge-based fertilizer;

bioengineering; or ionizing radiation.  Before a product can be

labeled “organic,” a Government-approved certified inspect the

farms where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is

following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic

standards.  Companies that handle or process organic food

before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be

certified, too.

BUT, you need to think about the following when you are

shopping in your neighborhood grocery store:

  1. The air and weather has been loaded down with metals

and toxins for years now.

  1. The soil has been depleted of nutrients for years now.
  1. The seeds that are used for growing YOUR food have

all been genially engineered, and for fast growing at that.

 

So I buy the best quality fresh vegetables I can afford, I buy

vegetables that I have to peel-carrots, beets, cucumbers, and

others that I can peel or have a thick skin,

The most nutrients I put in my body every week is the juice

I make:  chard with turmeric, olive oil and black pepper or

carrot juice with fresh ginger root.  You can freeze individual

portions and use within 1 week.

 

Although it is difficult to say I do this 100% of the time-but I try

hard not to buy anything in a:  bag, box, or canned food.

I do buy tuna fish at Whole Foods, plus I buy Whole Foods

365 brand.

 

EAT LESS, BUY BEST QUALITY YOU CAN AFFORD

 

You are going to have to supplement because of the conditions

that the food is grown and processed anymore.  50 to 100 or

more years ago the environment and soils were organic but

that is not the case anymore.

 

Read, do YOUR research so You understand the process of

the food you and YOUR family eat anymore.

The grains and how they affect your digestive system and YOUR

body.

The sky’s are being sprayed and that is having a terrible effect

on YOUR body and the food you put in it.  Toxins and heavy

metals that do damage to your body.  BEWARE – BEWARE

Over time all these negative items going into your body

will make your body diseased and sick.  Not only will YOUR

body become sick but YOU will die sick and I know that is

not what you want for you, your children or your family and

friends.

 

We want to die of old age and happy and healthy.  Not hooked

up to any machine where our family and friends stand around

waiting for me to die.

MSM is Methyl-sulfonyl-methane powerful for YOUR body

Is an organolsulfur compound that features the sulfonyl functional

group and is considered relatively inert chemically.  It occurs

naturally in some primitive plants and is present in small amounts

in many foods and beverages.

 

I have powdered MBM that I bought 5 pounds at once and try to

use it daily.

 

I use it to detox individual cells and that the uptake of nutrients will

be more beneficial in my body. I like the benefits of MSM that

makes cells more permeable, releasing certain built-up minerals

that can cause problems, heavy metals, waste and toxins, while

also helping usher in nutrients and water.  These are the reason I

take MSM.   Listed below are some other

issues that can be helped by MSM:

 

Osteoarthritis and joint pain.

Improves digestive problems like leaky gut syndrome by

rebuilding the lining of the digestive tract and lower

inflammation/allergic reactions to certain feeds.

 

Repairs skin and treats skin problems

including rosacea, allergies.  I use to have rosacea but because I

have been making sure my body receives enough nutrition on a

daily basis I have not had rosacea in approximately 20 years.

 

Lowers muscle pain and muscle spasms.

Helps repair the rigid fibrous tissue cells in our muscles that

become broken down during exercise, therefore helping to

prevent them from swelling for prolong periods of time.

 

Restores hair growth

it helps boost collagen and keratin levels that are needed for

forming new hair strands.

 

Helps the body

adapt to stress, heal and bounce back from exercise, stressful

events, injuries and even surgeries.

There are 3 other uses that have gain notoriety:

Preventing the hardening/thickening of arteries; helps the body’s

natural free radical scavenging abilities by lowering oxidative

stress.  Effective anti-inflammatory because it blocks the release

of pro-inflammatory mediators and down regulates certain harmful

signals.

 

MSM supplies the body with extra sulfur for creating methionine,

which helps in important bodily processes like making other

chemicals, forming connective tissue, synthesizing/metabolizing

foods and absorbing nutrients to be used for energy.

 

Using MSM helps my body in better immune function, accelerated

healing and reduced pain and recovery time from exercises like

marathoner.

 

MBM’s sulfur plays an important role in the production of

glutathione, considered to be a ‘master antioxidant” and an

important agent for detoxification.  This is why I have used MSM

for years.

 

I use powdered MSM and puts it in water and drinking throughout

the day.  But you can also use cream form, capsule/tablet forms.

 

Take 500 milligrams 3 times a day-it may disrupte your bowel

movements so take it slowly until you reach the amount that

works best for YOU.  Increasing your intake as your body gets

used to it and you do not experience any digestive side effects.

 

Because YOUR environment, job, family water, among a dozen

other items YOUR body needs MSM

 

REMEMBER:  MSM is called one of the miracle supplement  that

can do so many things that are good for YOUR body.

Do you know that  the involvement of estrogen and its receptors in the development of cancer has been known for years?

However, the exact mechanism responsible is far from clear. The estrogen- mediated carcinogenic process is complicated but YOU need to know as much as possible and we will do that together here on the only website that will help you know about YOU.

Estrogens have multiple functions in cells and the effect of estrogen may be cell-type or organ dependent.

The estrogenic effect may be also greatly influenced by the state of two estrogen receptors, ERalpha and ERbeta.

There are endocrine-disruptors compounds that mimic the effects of estrogen in the body and throw off hormonal balances. These disruptors are everywhere today, in our food, our water, and the household products we use every day.

Children are reaching puberty younger than ever, hormonal imbalances are linked to a variety of cancers, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and depression.

The disruptors mimic the effects of true estrogen and lodge in fatcells and are resistant to breakdown. They affect sleep, stress, metabolism and mood.

The biggest source of disruptors is chemicals.

The following is a list of how to avoid disruptors as much as possible in YOUR life:

  • Avoid plastics
  • Use safe household cleaning products
  • Reduce antibiotics
  • Change your diet
  • Avoid pesticides and herbicides
  • Buy American grass-fed animal products
  • Go raw
  • Buy local
  • Avoid SOY

There are two previous unrecognized xenoestrogens:

  1. propyl gallate — a preservative used to prevent fats and oils from spoiling
  2. 4-hexylresorcinol —used to prevent discoloration in shrimp and other shellfish these are used in many consumer products and trying to avoid them is a struggle.

They are in:

  • Pasteurized dairy
  • Soy products
  • Plastics
  • Personal care products
  • Teflon Cookware

My solutions are that I do not buy any bagged, canned, boxed foods for my home. Now, am I every going to be free of these man-made products – no, and when I go out to eat – I try to eat in locally owned restaurants that serve more locally grown food.

Protect your family:

  • Store your food in glass containers as much as possible.
  • Use natural cleaning products
  • Buy and eat organic food
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Avoid artificial sweeteners and MSG
  • Use natural brands of toiletries’

12 Food additives to avoid and READ LABELS from now on

  1. Solium Nitrate — I love bacon – I buy my bacon at Whole Foods who have their own bacon without nitrates that are linked to various types of cancer. Ham, hot dogs, luncheon meats, corned beef, etc.
  2. BHA & BHT — a preserve common household foods and cereals, gum, potato chips and vegetable oils.
  3. Propyl gallate — another preservative, meat products, chicken sop base, gun and could be linked to cancer
  4. MSG – monosodium glutamate —a flavor enhancer in soups, salad dressings, chips, frozen entrees, restaurant food. Can cause headaches and nausea, damaged nerve cells in brains of infant mice.
  5. Trans fats — proven to cause heart disease-especially fast food
  6. Aspartame — may cause cancer or neurological problems
  7. Acesulfame-K — artificial sweetener found in baked goods, fun, gelatin desserts.
  8. Food coloring— Blue 1 & 2, Red 3,  Green 3 Yellow 6
  9. Olestra — synthetic fat found in many processed chip brands
  10. Potassium bromate — additive to increase volume in some white flours, breads and rolls.
  11. White sugar — unsafe for your health and promotes bad nutrition
  12. Sodium chloride — bad salt and good salt – learn the difference

I have used Dr. Marshall’s pink salt for years. Thera are other good salts available. Do not use off -the-shelf grocery store salt.

Dring Water

…Movable parts of the same – which is SELF

Each can be addressed separately, but what affects the MIND, affects the BODY, and affects the SPIRIT.

So we can talk about the pineal gland here in the MIND but we can also talk about it in the BODY and SPIRIT.

Do you know how important the pineal gland is to YOU?

This tiny organ regulates your daily and seasonal circadian rhythms, the sleep-wake patterns that determine your hormone levels, stress levels, and physical performance.

Pineal gland is a small, rice-size, pinecone-shaped endocrine organ that sits alone in the  middle of your brain at eye level.

Fluoride (the bad kind of fluoride) will make this gland harden, resulting in less melatonin being produced, thus disturbing your wake-sleep cycle.

Below are some ways to help clean the pineal gland:

  • Iodine – I take nascent iodine
  • Calcium bentonite clay drink

Some of the ways to activate the pineal gland are:

  • Sun
  • Sleep in darkness with no electronics in bedroom
  • Meditation-directing energy to this highly sensitive organ

Children in the United States are reaching the age of puberty at earlier ages than in the past – a trend that carries health consequences, including a heightened risk for breast cancer.

Some evidence indicates that fluoride and it effects on the pineal gland could be a contributing to this trend.

Cities are now finding out that the fluoride that they are buying to put into city water if not a good fluoride and may, not only affect pineal gland but also IQ – research has been done in different countries.  And damages bone and may increase hip fractures in the elderly.  Fluoride may cause bone cancer, research by National Cancer Institute in young men in fluoridated versus fluoridated areas.  Fluoride may also cause reproductive problems.  There has been researching about the effects of Floride around the world.

Low-income families are especially penalized by fluoridation and are the very people being targeted by new fluoridation programs.

It is hard to inform low-income families and black and Hispanic children are more vulnerable to fluoride’s toxicity.  Now that you know the bad side of fluoride and if you do volunteer work in YOUR community – spread the word – once YOU know something YOU have to take action.

ACT – DO NOT WAIT TO REACT

This is where the fluoride in most city water comes from,  it is not a pharmaceutical grade, instead, it comes from the wet scrubbing systems of the phosphate fertilizer industry so they can make money instead of putting it in a city landfill which is not allowed in most cities.

 Fluoride is an environmental health threat but it is easy to end.

Go to your city meetings and usually, there is an anti-fluoride group  — join them, help them and inform YOUR community and try to reach out the low-income families so they have the information they need to make good decisions for their families.

Iodine-rich pink salt

Is YOUR body getting enough Iodine?

Do you know what happens when your body runs out of iodine or gets low on iodine?

Iodine does amazing things for YOUR body.

Iodine deficiency is a global health issue. The World Health Organization estimate over 2 billion people may be iodine deficient, with up to 50 million suffering from serious symptoms of iodine deficiency, such as brain damage.

When the thyroid gland does not receive enough iodine YOUR body will have problems.

I am hypothyroid — it came about in my 40s — sometimes -they were not testing for thyroid problems at that time and took me, several doctors, to find out – when my OB/GYN called me at 9 pm one night because when he did test for thyroid it was so low he called as soon as he got the test. It has affected my whole body for the past 35 years.

And then I am type O positive blood type – which after all my research and find Dr. D’Amato’s research on blood types. Which his research states that this blood type is more susceptible to hypothyroidism, among other characteristics.

There are of symptoms of being iodine deficient:

  • Slowed brain function
  • Slowed metabolism
  • Lowered immunity
  • Emotional upset and anxiety
  • Compromised organ function
  • Depression
  • Weight gain

There are several different types of iodine. I take what they call nascent iodine, for my body it works best. I also make sure I buy it from Dr. Group products. There are all kinds – I try to buy the best product I can so that if I do take any one particular product I know what is going into my body.

I also have two different water purification products at home: I have a ph. water purifier and a water distiller. I never drink water out of the faucet.

When you go in to have your next annual checkup at the doctor – have him check for your iodine levels. But if you are tired all the time, have gained weight, have a foggy brain, have anxiety you will probably want a thyroid test done immediately so you can keep on track with your health.

I take Armour thyroid-it is from a pig thyroid and I appreciate that I can get it instead of the 20 years I was on man-made thyroid.

I believe everyone should have their iodine levels checked every year to stay ahead of any issues.

Our food, our water, our air is all causing different issues in each of us. The more YOU know about YOU the better you will age Healthy and Happy.

Factors that may contribute to low iodine levels are:

  • Diets low in fish
  • Vegan and vegetarian diets
  • Decreased use of iodized sale
  • Use of radioactive iodine in many medical procedures

Bromine chemicals are in our foods and products in the US – these have been linked to behavioral changes and neurodevelopmental disorders. And they have an effect on your endocrine system which is YOUR thyroid.

I use GOOD salt – Dr. Marshall’s Pink Salt, Celtic salt, your body needs GOOD salt. Good salt helps in being healthy also. Of course, commercial salt is not a GOOD salt. Good salt helps in a good thyroid function also.

Healthy Nutrition

SELF needs to know what helps the mind function at a high level while aging…

Does YOUR mind have enough B-12, or other minerals, nutrients to help it function at its highest level every day?
My brain gets a variety of nutrients every day: all B vitamins, coconut oil, multivitamins, lithium oratate, plus other things for my Blood type-0 positive.
The right thoughts, the right nutrients, knowing and controlling SELF, are a good start to feeding YOUR mind the right things while aging.
