Toxic Skin Causes a Toxic Brain


Beauty is not skin deep, however the skin is integral to and a reflection of health!

Many of you have let me know that you have have problems with your nervous system. Did you know that your skin plays a large role in the health of your brain and nervous system?

Skin of humans is closely linked with the brain and nervous system, even more so than the more accepted gut brain axis.

Embryology tells us that early after the sperm/egg affair a round blastula forms that will ultimately become the fetus, however the blastoma must first differentiate into 3 layers. The 3 layers are Ectoderm, Mesoderm and Endoderm. The ectoderm is one uniform type of tissue that will differentiate into the brain, nerves and skin.

The mesoderm turns into muscles and organs and the endoderm transforms into the gut from mouth to anus.

So you see the skin, brain, and nerves are truly one integral system.

Often we talk about the healing touch or how when the sun hits our skin we feel good. Remember that the skin is covered in photo-receptors, much like the photoreceptors in the macula in retina of the eye, because the skin is bringing light of certain wavelengths into the body.

The skin photoreceptors filter the various wavelengths of sunlight into the body to be used as a nutrient to increase the energy/vitality of each tissue.

ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the energy molecule that runs your body. A 100 pound person burns 40 pounds of ATP every day. To make energy from ATP your body breaks off one phosphate group and in doing so releases one photon of light and heat. This light and heat are what runs the body.

The skin is also balancing energy (light/heat) production inside of the body, with the loss of light/heat across the skin. The skin is releasing 1000-2000 photons per square centimeter of skin, per second...that is energy that if lost inappropriately, or not replenished appropriately, will result in draining the person, leading to cold/sclerotic, degenerative conditions.

Babies thrive from human skin contact and perish with out.

There are many other examples of the skin's influence on brain, but also we see the brain's influence on the skin when our emotions influence the skin turning the skin pale when we are afraid, and red when angered. Some people get hives when they get mentally stressed. Exciting situations give us goosebumps.

EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids), were in times past, always recommended for skin health and then later research revealed their importance for brain health. So at the Hansa Center, we have our massage therapists use a wide-range of types massage oils and ointments on the patients in order to bring a wider range of nutrients to the skin and nervous system than simply using a basic massage oil.

Skin flora like gut flora must be maintained as it predicts proper skin pH. People often get skin fungus from using antibacterial and heavily perfumed soap on their skin, not to mention the laundry detergents and toxic fabric softeners that leave chemical residues to be absorbed by the skin. All of these alter the friendly flora of the skin...and definitely if you have a sick skin you will always have a sick brain and nervous system.

The skin quality, color, tone, texture, thickness, and resilience, should be part of your doctor's diagnostic assessment and can lead to a bigger understanding of what therapies will be required to truly restore health.

The skin/brain axis cant be ignored.

Nutritive/Strengthen bath's (from my Beating Lyme Disease book) should be used with regularity in situations where the skin is unhealthy from the inside-out as well as from the outside-in, as in chronic exposure to flora disrupting agents are in the midst like working in a factory with airborne toxins and such. Definitely have the person do Dry Skin Brushing before this bath in order to get the maximum benefit of the bath.

Daily hot water showering destroys/removes the bed for friendly flora and decreases numbers especially if toxic common soaps are used, not to mention the skin/body damaging effects of Chlorine and other municipal water stabilizers.

Focusing part of your treatments upon repairing/healing the skin is important, especially for people who are severely environmentally sensitive, electromagnetically sensitive, and those who are empathically-challenged.

The skin is somewhat our protective barrier to what we take into our body energetically and physically.

Ideas for healing the skin:

- Silica Skin Powder (Uriel Pharmacy)
- Carbo/Chamomilla Capsules (Uriel)
- Dry Skin Brushing
- Nutritive/Strengthening baths
- Switching the person off of toxic soaps/lotions/Shampoo/conditioners...
- Warm baths and showers only...not hot
- EFA's
- Vitality Refresh Vitamin D tanning bed
- Use various massage oils (Uriel Pharmacy)
- Grounding/Earthing daily
- Infrared Sauna - It is important to be sweating all over, instead of just parts of the body sweating. (Use 6-8 Ferrum Phos pillules and 6-8 Scorodite/Prunus pillules (Uriel Pharmacy) 15 minutes before getting into the sauna, again when they get in, and again 15 minutes after they have been in the sauna to repair the body's ability to release sweat/toxins until they report whole body sweating)
- Get the gut flora balanced/cleansed, coffee enemas, probiotics, and nutritional support.
- Eat only live, organic foods. Live-Fermented foods.
- Drink Amasai (Beyond Organics) for better gut performance.
- If you live near the ocean, it might be good to soak in the ocean once a week.
- Obviously, the skin is also going to improve dramatically as you facilitate the total health restoration on all levels with everything you do.

If you wouldn't eat it then don't put it on your skin! Toxic skin means you have a toxic brain and nervous system.

Bacteriophages: Kill Bacteria in Your Body!

Imagine a blood-sucking tick injecting Lyme spirochetes into your body. Now imagine bacteriophages inside your body that were programmed to seek out the Lyme bacteria in your body, latch onto them, and then inject their DNA into the Lyme spirochetes in order to kill them!

Watch this video of Dr. Jernigan discussing the possibility of this newly discovered help in the fight against infections: http://bit.ly/OXXxUR

Is your medication causing the very symptoms it was intended to block?




Is your medication causing the very symptoms it was intended to block? This is the second post on this topic.

Last tip we introduced a law of pharmacology: every drug will eventually cause the same and worse symptoms it was intended to block.

This is why it is important to treat the cause and not the symptoms. If you treat the cause, then eventually you can stop taking the medication, since the cause is eventually eliminated.

If you treat the symptoms, such as treating pain with a pain-killer, you will be a slave to the pain-killers forever, since they really don’t fix anything.

They most certainly will eventually start causing pain, which makes most people want totake even more of the painkiller!

Medications can start creating new problems quite rapidly in some people, sometimes in as little as a few weeks, which is why it is important that your doctor be able to test the natural and prescription remedies/medicines to see ifthey are even needed anymore.

By the way, when your doctor tests that you are not needing a remedy anymore, it doesn't necessary mean you don't have your symptoms still. You may still have some symptoms, but the remedy has done what it can do and you need to be put on something better now.

Is it any wonder the world is so messed up and addicted to legal prescription drugs? The more you take them the more you feel you need them!

Sometimes the true skill in doctoring is not so much being able to put the person on great medicines, the true skill is knowing when those medicines have done what they can do and should be discontinued.

The goal of the doctors at the Hansa Center is to rapidly get your body to a place where you do not need to take tons of remedies just to feel well. We are looking for you to feel the effects progressively improving your body every day.

The Dark Side of Taking Medicines.


The dark side of taking medicines.

One of my “All-time” favorite newspaper cartoons pictured a doctor handing a patient a bottle of pills. The caption read, “Take one of these…and if you wake up in the morning, take another!” All humor aside, I want to pass on a medical truth that very few doctors even realize.

Every natural and pharmaceutical medicine’s primary side-effect is also its primary action!

The longer you take a medicine, the more symptoms will begin to appear as a result of the "proving of the medicine," even if you only took the medicine at a low dosage.

The word, "Proving" in this medical context, is a homeopathic medicine term. For over 200 years, in order to determine what a new medicine will treat, homeopathic researchers give repeated doses of the homeopathic medicine to healthy test people, and document very carefully what signs and symptoms begin happening as a result of taking too much of the medicine.

By "proving" a remedy in this way they know that the symptoms that the medicine will cause in a healthy person, it will fix in a sick person with those same symptoms.

However, if the sick person were to take the medicine too long, or take too large a dosage, they will also "prove" the remedy, and the symptoms that were gone will return along with more symptoms that were just due to the scope of that particular medicine's actions on the body.

If you listen to the television commercials about various drugs they will tell you at the end of the commercial that the primary side-effect of the antidepressant is depression, severe depression, and suicidal tendencies...the worst type of depression.

The insomnia medicine’s primary side-effect is sleeplessness.

The truth is that even if a medicine is perfect for “curing” what is wrong with you, as it is fixing things in the body eventually you reach the point where the correction is complete and you should discontinue the medicine.

If you continue the remedy beyond the point of it being needed by your body, you literally go through the correction and out the other side and you will start manifesting an drug-induced, energetic “computer virus,” that causes many of the same symptoms again.

If pharmaceuticals were a real solution to health problems you wouldn't need to take them forever...risking the very predictable "side-effects" of having taken the drug too long. Say no to drug-induced illusions of health.

True healing never seeks to mask symptoms, since that would defeat the whole point of...truly healing.

states and countries. Talk with Kara, our wonderful and compassionate Patient Care Coordinator, directly by calling (316-686-5900), or have a private live chat on our webpage (www.HansaCenter.com) and let us help you get here.

Parasites Can Cause ADD, Chronic Fatigue, and Mood Swings!




Remember how as children everything went into the mouth, including really disgusting things? Some parasites can live inside the body for up to 25 years!

Parasites can be the cause of ADD, mood swings, and chronic fatigue in children and adults.

Parasites are a common cause of yeast and bacterial overgrowth. Parasites are organisms that vary in size from microscopic to up to 30 foot worms, many of which can live for
10-25 years without ever leaving the body.

Parasites compete with your own bodyfor the nutrients you eat. In hyper-infections of parasites, the competitive uptake of nutrients can deprive your body of the nutrients so important to maintain balance.

Parasites seem to most often consume B vitamins from your food and vitamin supplements. Without adequate B vitamins you cannot regulate your stress responses correctly, or produce hormones, or produce energy! This sets up
a chain reaction of systemic deficiencies ultimately altering the body’s acid/alkaline pH balance.

A normal pH balance in the body is important to maintain, because yeast and other microbes cannot survive and overpopulate unless the pH balance of the body is upset. An alkaline environment promotes health, while an acidic environment promotes dysfunction.

Killing the parasites can go a long way towards bringing the pH back into balance. There are many parasite cleanses and supplements on the market. Obviously my personal favorite
is the one I developed, Paragen, from Jernigan Nutraceuticals, which is broad acting and gentle on the gut.

Other botanicals that are typically used are combinations of Black Walnut extract, Artemisia, Green Pumpkin seed, garlic, and others.

Clove oil is very important since it can dissolve the parasite eggs, not just kill the adult parasites.

Remember parasites are often not easy to eliminate and can require the help of your natural doctor to determine if you have them and what your unique body needs to correct the problem.

You should do a parasite cleanse at least two times a year no matter what. By the way, the egg of a tapeworm, the
largest worm in the human body, is just a little bigger than the period at the end of this sentence. So keep your fingers out of your mouth and stop biting your fingernails, which are like little parasite egg filled shovels!

Worms in your body are a leading cause of hyper-infection of bacteria.




Worms in your body are a leading cause of hyper-infection of bacteria.

Many people are mortified to find out that they have parasites, however the world is much smaller now, with people traveling to and from other countries, and many types of parasites are now found in the U.S. that
were not characteristically found here.

Parasites secrete chemicals that promote the hyper-infection of bacteria (even the Lyme bacteria and coinfections) leading to severe ongoing bacterial infections and complete dysbiosis, the condition where the friendly flora is overtaken by the pathogenic microbes.

The chemicals the parasites secrete strongly suppress the immune system, even when you take herbs and supplements that are designed to boost the immune system.

The world's largest worm is a tapeworm, which grows over 30 feet long and can live in the body for 25 years. The eggs of this large worm are just a little bigger than the period at the end of this sentence. So the eggs of smaller worms of the world are virtually invisible without a microscope.

Anytime your fingers go in your mouth, especially those who bite their cuticles and fingernails, you are likely inoculating yourself with parasite eggs. Fingernails are just loaded since they are like little shovels.

Use a toothpick, not your fingers. Wipe your fingers on a napkin, instead of licking that food off of your fingers.

Kill the parasites and often the chronic and hyper-infection of bacteria will be much easier to resolve.

Don't Count on Antibiotics to Save You!





Did you know that the growth of bacteria infections in the human body fluctuates dramatically, based upon the health of your body,
mind, and spirit?

How you and your body react, respond, and adapt to changes and challenges that occur in your internal and external environment, determines whether or not your body can effectively keep infections from getting worse.

Any time your body shifts out of optimum integrity (coherence) the bacteria will be able to grow and create disease in a much accelerated rate!

A person can take the worlds best selection of antibiotics and natural supplements/remedies and have dramatic
shifts in their effectiveness. Once effectiveness of the medicines has been shifted by the changes in the body, the bacteria will no longer as sensitive to
the medicines.

In the same way that a person with AIDS never dies directly from the HIV virus. The virus destroys the immune system, and as a result bacterial infections can rage completely unchecked. Without treatment a person with AIDS can take all the IV antibiotic cocktails they want and still die from the bacterial infections.

Without correct regulation of the autonomic nervous system, immune system, and virtually every other system of the body, there is no way antibiotics will ever be a lasting solution. This is true with AIDS, Staph and Strep infections, and oh yes for certain...Lyme disease!

The ideal doctor is not a specialist in diseases, but one who understands disease, yet specializes in restoring what is optimum.

Chronic Fatique and Low Body Temperature; A Recipe for Disaster!



You cannot keep running your body's engine with no fuel and no heat!

In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there are many theories as to the cause. Some say it is the effects of heavy metal and chemical toxicity. Some say it is chronic infections, while others say it is the side-effects from vaccines and the use of suppressive medicines such as acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen, still others say it is dysregulated hormones or the effects of emotional trauma.


It this author’s opinion everyone is correct in the same way as the proverbial three blind men describing an elephant from the head, tail, and the side are correct in each one’s description but only from his unique vantage point. However, in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there is one common overriding finding…low body temperature!

This article deals primarily with the very predictable problems seen in low body temperature and the profound importance of restoring and maintaining normal core body temperature. This is true not just in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but in every degenerative disease of our day.

Your core body temperature is the temperature taken under the tongue. When human physiology books refer to the “normal” core body temperature it is presented as a range sometimes listed between 97.0-99.0°F . Understand that the “Normal Range” for temperature or even the normal ranges in blood tests are based upon the average person of our day. That is why “normal” changes periodically, because as our average population continues to get sicker the normal ranges must be adjusted. So in this discussion I am speaking about what is an optimal core body temperature – 98.6-99.6°F.

Much emphasis in conventional medicine is usually placed upon feverish conditions; however, a low body temperature can be a much more sinister condition. Where a fever can be viewed as an active developmental and corrective process of the healthy body, a low body temperature can never be viewed as a normal or healthy condition, nor is it a mechanism for a learning or developmental process in the body.

A low body temperature creates a happy home for viruses and chronic infections, and is a sign of degeneration and gradual cellular death. The problem with a low core temperature is that no effective immune response can be mounted therefore no fever is generated and infections go undetected. The sickest person is one who gets the same infections but never miss a day of work because there is no response by their immunes system, so they have a false sense of wellness as healthier individuals go through healthy fevers and immune responses that may cause them to miss work.

Low body temperature is the plague of the 21st century. People with low body temperature have a weak reaction to even the most ideal medicines and therapies.

As the body’s core temperature decreases all cellular energy also decreases thereby leading to profound and chronic fatigue that is not relieved by sleep.

The effects of low temperature:

The cooperative and collective intelligence of the human organism is short-circuited as the body temperature cools. As a result, all cellular functions decrease. There is a decrease in the production of all hormones, neurotransmitters, and other body chemicals necessary for healthy regulation of energy.

In this mild hypothermia condition there is an increased susceptibility to infectious disease as temperature drops the acidity of the body increases and the normally predominantly negative polarity of the cells become more positively charged.

The colder the body becomes the more prone to depression and other psychological abnormalities and all degenerative illnesses of the body, mind and spirit.

Until the causes of the lowered temperature are addressed and corrected, the best that can be hoped for is only temporary or mild improvement of symptoms and a gradual but steady overall decline in health.

Viruses prefer and promote a cold environment and replicate at a much more rapid rate when the body is cold. Viruses are killed and further replication is impeded by maintaining a warm body. Some bacteria such as Lyme spirochetes also prefer and promote a cold environment and can remain in a chronic state as long as their cold environment is maintained. Therefore, in the interest of the prevention and treatment of any viral, bacterial, or chronic illness, this topic must be understood.

The ultimate body coldness is seen in death. When observing a corpse many clinical gems can be gleaned and correlated to degenerative states of human suffering. In death, the blood and lymph fluid of the body solidify and the body becomes stiff and cold. In the same way many chronic cold illnesses such as, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, cancer, Lyme disease, Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes, and heart disease, we see that the body becomes progressively colder. As the body cools, the electrical oscillations of the fluids in the body slow down and there is a shift in the body’s polarity which promotes infectious microbes and cancer.

We can see the same principle of what happens in the body by observing the same dynamics in a water molecule. When the electrical oscillations of a water molecule slows down it becomes a solid, ice, as we speed up a water molecule’s electrical oscillations it liquefies and ultimately becomes a vapor.

The colder a body becomes, the slower the electrical oscillatory rate and therefore the thicker, more viscous, or syrupy the body fluids become. The more viscous the fluids become the more difficult it is for the body to push the fluids through the body. The lymph fluids that are normally supposed to bathe the outsides of all of your cells become progressively stagnant as it is too thick to move efficiently.

Now, consider the fact that just like your skin is constantly dying and flaking off and being replaced, so it is that every cell in your body is in a constant state of dying and being replaced. Only now the cold, syrupy lymph fluid cannot wash the dead cellular debris away. As a result the body becomes a toxic waste dump!

Muscles normally have a high demand for energy. Through contraction and relaxation muscles assist in eliminating their own cellular waste products. In a cold body however, the liquidity of the fluids inside of the muscles is gone, and the muscles cannot move the toxins and cellular debris.

The deeper you go into belly or center of the muscle, the colder and more difficult it is to move the toxins. Without normal viscosity of the body fluids, muscular contraction and relaxation grinds to a halt, like an engine with no lubricating oil. The belly of the muscle develops a knot that can be felt when massaging the muscle. This is the knotted, painful, muscle condition commonly known as “trigger points” of Fibromyalgia Syndrome, which is being diagnosed in millions of people every year.

If the low body temperature is allowed to persist and no therapies are applied, even in a palliative manner as in massages to move toxins manually out of the belly of the muscle, the condition follows that of the water molecule. The belly of the muscle, due to the increasing coldness and decreased muscular activity progressively over time reaches the point of zero electrical oscillations at which time the tissue solidifies in a calcified stone in the belly of the muscle.

Interesting research that supports this concept has been performed by Dr. Carolyn McMakin, D.C. using the electro-therapy called microcurrent. The microcurrent is applied through direct contact on these trigger points via vinyl/graphite gloves connected to the microcurrent machine.

The trigger points virtually vanish under the gentle touch of the glove when applying the correct electrical frequency. What may be happening here is that the stimulation of the muscle through microcurrent is externally increasing the electrical oscillatory rate of the thickened fluids in the muscle resulting in temporarily restoring the normal liquidity of the fluids allowing the muscles to once again contract and pump out the toxic accumulation.

The results are somewhat temporary due to the fact that the underlying condition that created it in our scenario, the overall low body temperature, remains unchanged. However, used in combination with various other corrective measures, this microcurrent therapy can speed healing in many cases. Relief of Fibromyalgia Through Microcurrent Therapy by John W. Addington ImmuneSupport.com 7-11-2001

Organ Circuits and low temperature

The body is set up with dedicated electrical circuits all of which are interdependent and interconnected. A circuit in the body has a specific organ, gland, teeth, muscle, and nerves. If anything goes wrong in one of these organ circuits the circuit energy goes down approximately 60% of normal.

The laws of thermodynamics state if we decrease energy we decrease temperature. Due to the interconnectedness of all the circuits, one circuit in the body cannot go down without ultimately affecting the whole.

Therefore, if the muscle is seizing up and becoming progressively rigid and solidified, what do you suppose the organ that is also on that same electrical circuit is doing? It is likely that to some degree it is also progressively seizing up and solidifying.

In the 50,000 miles of blood vessels, the cold thick blood is more difficult to flow through the veins and arteries. Arteriosclerosis, the progressive hardening of the arteries, and the clogging of the blood vessels is manifesting the exact same problem that is being experienced by every tissue in the too cold body.

Edema in the extremities is seen as the muscular walls of the blood vessels seize up and can no longer maintain tone and the fluids leaks out of the pores in the vessels.

I look at many older patients, and some not so old, who are experiencing all the signs and symptoms of death in the extremities. They are dying in their extremities first, from the feet and hands up to legs to the torso. To touch their feet is just like touching an icy, stiff, dead corpse. The foot is deathly whitish blue and etched in blue/black blood vessels from devitalized, stagnant blood.

The overcooling of peripheral blood returning from cold legs and feet causes depression of the temperature in the vital organs with slowing of metabolic processes, particularly in the brain and medullary centers. Cotran R.S., Kumar V., Robbins S.L., Robbin’s Pathological Basis of Disease 4th ed. 1989 pp501. Death occurs when a vital organ reaches the point of being too cold.

Your physician can name your disease, he can call it cancer, he can draw your blood and show you everything that is wrong with it, but he is simply describing the process I have just outlined. When the core temperature of the body is cold every organ, gland, and tissue is affected and becomes hypo-functional or may even become hyper, as in the case of hyperthyroidism, in a last ditch effort to compensate for the hypothermic condition of the body.

Hypo-function in the body means that there are fewer hormones, and less of every chemical involved with normal body and brain function. Even the psyche is affected leading to virtually any type of psychological problem, especially depression. How many people are told that they have psychological depression from a deficiency of a certain brain chemical?

Many!

Can you see that of course they are deficient in “happy” brain chemicals possibly due to the overcooling of the body?

It might be said that you are dying in direct proportion to the coldness of your body. Follow this logic: Cells degenerate and die in direct proportion to the depletion of oxygen. Blood that is overcooled from a cold core temperature is too thick to efficiently carry oxygen and the lung vital capacity is reduced leading to shallow breathing.

This means that the oxygen to carbon dioxide exchange rate in the lungs is minimal. Now combine the degenerative effects of the oxygen deprivation and the cold temperature and the fact that all of this and the overgrowth of microbes promote an acidic environment and you have greatly accelerated cellular degeneration and the onset of life-threatening disease.

There is an optimum body temperature is which all chemical reactions in the human body need in order to maintain health...98.6° F. I can honestly say that I rarely see a new patient come into my clinic with a normal body temperature. One 66 year old woman came in as a new patient with a temperature of 94.6! She was in dire straits for certain. She could not feel her feet and to touch her legs was like touching the legs of a corpse, the legs even looked dead and grey, streaked with blue/black veins of stagnant devitalized blood.

In classic hypothermia, as seen in people stranded in blizzards, it is well known that the circulation of blood in the arms and legs is reduced dramatically, almost to zero, in order to provide protection and warmth to the vital organs. These people will also cease to feel cold and will experience numbness, loss of coordination, mental confusion, and heart rhythm problems. It sounds like I am describing many elderly people, and some cancer sufferers doesn’t it?

One way to treat weather related hypothermia is to give the person warm sugar drinks. Sugar is a cheap, fast burning fuel for your body and therefore generates a lot of heat in the process. This may be why so many people suffering from lifestyle induced cold core temperature are plagued with sugar cravings.

Many of them consume copious amounts of sugar in the form of soda pops, chocolate, pastries, and various candies. It may be a craving that is driven by the body’s desire to generate fast heat to keep the body functioning. Sugar cravings should diminish as the core body temperature problems are resolved.

Keep in mind that the body has been too cold possibly since birth, due to multi-generational use of suppressive medicines, vaccines, fever-reducers, heavy metal and chemical toxins, and from the consumption of energetically dead food.

The retraining and resetting of the body’s thermostat is just the beginning of healing the body of chronic illnesses. The normal body temperature must be held steady possibly for a year or more in some cases before the body can undo the damage of a lifetime of coldness.

Understanding your Temperature

Everyone can afford a simple thermometer. Track your temperature when you first awaken in the morning, before even getting out of bed. This reflects your core body temperature, when it is not being influenced by what you just ate, drank, or your activity level. Many of you will likely be surprised to see just how cold you already are. This is the result of generations of suppressive therapies and an imbalanced life. You must save yourself.

Many doctors will undoubtedly say that you need to take a thyroid medication to bring up the body temperature; however this is the same mentality of taking a Tylenol for a headache. If you don’t believe me then ask anyone on the prescription thyroid medicines- what happens when they go off of the medication? The body returns immediately to the previous cold, hypo-functional condition.

One should definitely support the normal functioning of the thyroid, by detoxification, iodine and selenium (IodoPlus), adrenal glandular supplements, and nutritional support, but see the coldness for what it really is, a sign of multi-organ system breakdown, and longstanding or even generational imbalance. Besides, it is the hypothalamus that regulates your core body temperature, along with regulating your degree of motivation and sex drive. The hypothalamus is actually “upstream” from your thyroid, helping the pituitary regulate the thyroid.

The healthy body has daily temperature fluctuations (diurnal) with the coolest temperature upon awakening in the morning hours of 6-8 a.m. and the warmest being in the evening between 8-10 p.m. Tracking of the difference between morning and evening temperature should reveal, in a healthy person, a difference of at
least 0.9° F (0.5° C).

People with a low body temperature and an overall degenerative condition will find that this temperature variation is minimal. Another unusual finding of dysregulated body temperature is that the evening is often colder than the morning reading.

The body’s best chance at long-term healing increases in direct proportion to the restoration of normal body temperature. The effect of even the most perfectly selected medicines is limited by the available energy in the body to correctly utilize those medicines.

You and your healthcare team must address your body from every direction and with every balancing tool available. You can never truly overcome this condition with pills. Therapies must engage and reactivate and stimulate the rhythmical, metabolic, and nerve/sense aspects of your body, addressing the body, mind, and spirit.

Other supporting therapies designed for restoring the rhythms of the body must be applied. These therapies might include color and sound therapy, hot and cold contrast therapy, life-activity planning, breathing and voice therapy, rhythmical massage therapy, curative movement therapies, and indeed every other treatment from your doctor will address in some way the rhythmical aspects of your body.

Low body temperature must be addressed to bring the body back to balance. The temperature must be elevated to end the dying process of the body and to help the body eliminate the cellular debris or the “sludge” in the body.

Treatment Options:

· Temperature monitoring and graphing (upon awakening before getting out of bed, and between 8-10 pm after a 30 minute resting period)
· CRT (Computerized Regulation Thermography) for identifying problem areas and tracking of progress. 
·  Definitely have your doctor do a complete Thyroid Profile, including thyroid antibodies, and Reverse T3. Also ask your doctor to do a 24-hour Saliva Cortisol/DHEA/Female hormones test through DiagnosTechs Lab. Address any findings with bio-identical hormones and glandular support, such as Cytozyme-AD for the cortisol (Each pill has 2.5 mg of bioidentical cortisol), and for the Thyroid support for Hypothyroid consider ThyroGold (bovine glandular)...definitely not Synthroid. For female hormone support I suggest bio-identical Sotto Pelle pellets over any creams, pills, or troches.

Getting Rapid Results From a Dynamic Body

Did you know that if you accidentally cut off the end of your finger anywhere beyond the last knuckle that your body would completely regenerate it perfectly as long as your doctor doesn't sew the skin closed at the end?

You have a brand new stomach lining every 4 days, new skin every 30 days, a new liver in 6 weeks, even the skeleton is replaced every three months.

Healthy hair grows half an inch a month, and adult fingernails grow one-tenth of an inch a month.

Pictured with this post is the regeneration of human nerve cells, the slowest tissue to naturally heal.

This natural regeneration of your body is greatly influenced by your overall health.

Natural repair/regeneration is most obvious that when you get a simple problem like a blister. It will take four weeks for the skin to completely heal to the point that you cannot see where the blister was.

Obviously it will take longer than four weeks if you pick at the scab, if it gets infected, or you are nutritionally depleted in your body.

It is the proverbial "salt in the cut" when disease has injured the tissues of virtually every system in the body. The entire body is overly sensitive to things, like smells, tastes, EMF pollution, temperature changes, remedies/medicines... We are in such a "quick-fix" society that it seems many
people are very impatient when their illness is taking so long to heal.

Very often a person coming to the Hansa Center will give their doctor two weeks to make significant change in
their illness or they will write the doctor or the system of care off as being no good.

Significant change can often be seen in our two weeks of care, however the body is dynamic, constantly changing in response to the barrage of challenges in your life, which means the carefully selected, frequency-matched, remedies your are taking must be adjusted periodically to adjust to those changes. I have even seen the action of a person's primary remedies blocked when they decided to start taking simple dehydrated carrot powder! Of course, it is highly unlikely that everyone taking carrot powder will have their remedies blocked, however it does demonstrate how sensitive it can be now that we can use BRS to make sure that your remedies are still working the way they should.

The person you were yesterday no longer exists.

Especially in the chronic illnesses, the more symptoms you have, the longer you have been sick, the more you medications that were randomly given over the years, the less likely it is that you can just get on a selection of remedies or follow some canned protocol will be specific to exactly what your unique body needs.

If you have been taking the same core remedies for a year or more without demonstrable effect, you need to consider getting tested to what your body specifically needs and get off what isn't working.

Your Treatments Should Work With The Latest Science-Nobel Prize Winning Doctor

If you have any chronic health problem, Lyme disease, or any other infection, read this tip. The body is not just a bunch of chemicals that somehow bump into each other and everything just works.

The nervous system is now understood to be too slow for it to be what runs everything. A nerve impulse can only travel from 2-400 miles per hour, depending on how big the nerve is. This is way too slow to be what enables your body to adapt instantly to the innumerable changes that are happening inside and outside of your body. The nerves sense pain, position, and obvious regulate many of our five senses but not much else.

So what runs the "behind-the-scenes" myriad of functions in the body? The body is more "fiber optic" than neurological in its regulation. Biophotonic light transmissions run the body. The light of the body is not just an "On" or "Off" type of light. The light of the body contains the dynamic, software information that is modified as needed by every cell.

Our body is really, on an energetic level, a condensation of energy of many types.

How important is this knowledge? Noble Prize laureate, Luc Montagnier, Ph.D, discovered that certain bacterial and viral DNA sequences dissolved in water causes electromagnetic signals to be emitted at high dilutions. Now, new results from his lab appear to show that the DNA sequence itself could be reconstituted FROM THE ELECTROMAGNETIC SIGNAL!

So if you have been sold the antibiotic mentality of "kill the bug," consider this next fact. Dr. Montagnier's team added all the individual ingredients necessary for synthesizing (making) DNA by the polymerase chain reaction – nucleotides, primers, polymerase enzyme - to the tube with the pure water that had gained the bacterial electromagnetic signal.

The electromagnetic signal caused all the ingredients to become arranged into a strand of DNA!!!

A DNA band of the expected size (104 bp) was found. It was 98 percent identical to the sequence of bacterial DNA from which the EM signals originated (only 2 out of 104 basepairs were different).

The experiment was highly reproducible, 12 out of 12 times; and was also repeated with another DNA sequence from the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, the agent of Lyme disease.

The idea is that the bacteria and viruses can be reconstituted, even after they were killed by antibiotics, just from the electromagnetic signals imprinted in the crystalline-matrix and fluids of your body! This is likely why people seem to get repeatedly "reinfected."

So from this I hope you see, it is very important that if you can manipulate the gene energetically, you can change gene expression (MTHFR and others), but see also that everything you put into your body (vaccines/toxic medicines) also can also shift our entire gene pool!

This electromagnetic signaling is part of the body's "software," the "organizing principle" I have been talking about in these Health tips. These electromagnetic signals control and regulate not only the growth of bacteria and viruses, but also control and regulate every tissue and concept of life in the body, and mind.

If we stop thinking in such a pieces-and-parts mentality, such as we do about the engine of a car, where parts can be exchanged, taken out, or fixed by a mechanic, and start understanding that our body is a dynamic software program, with practically rivers of energy flowing in many different directions, we can begin to understand that pain and dysfunction is often created when there is a dam to the flow of energetic information through the body, or there is corrupted software.

While we still cannot fix everything, this is definitely one of the exciting things about the treatments we do at the Hansa Center, through our special testing, BioResonance Scanning, we can identify much of what is interfering with the software of the body and once corrected, through inputting "corrective software" in the form of frequency-matched, homeopathic and botanical remedies, low-level lasers, bioenergetic treatments... the pain and dysfunction often fall away, and even potentially the "organizing principle" of bacteria can be rewritten to enable the bio-energetic aspect of the body to eliminate them.

If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, you might consider coming to the Hansa Center. Our doctors and staff do not want you for a "life-time" patient. We don't want you to have to take fistfuls of supplements for the rest of your life. We want to bring to bear the maximum applied effort and science, to gently, yet definitely help facilitate your body's ability to get you out of your illness as quickly as possible. This is not "cookbook doctoring." It is not doctoring following some "famous" doctor's protocol. It is dynamic testing and treatments that are hyper-tailored to your body's specific needs.

The ideal doctor is not a specialist in diseases, but one who understands disease, yet specializes in restoring what is optimum.

If you have done everything you and your doctors know to do and are still struggling please call and talk with Kara, our wonderful and compassionate Patient Care Coordinator, directly by calling 316-686-5900 ext.1, or have a private live chat on our webpage www.HansaCenter.com, or you can email her at patientcare@HansaCenter.com

Hansa Center Case Outcome Review of the Effectiveness of the Biological Medicine Treatment Philosophy

As Practiced at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health Among Patients With Diverse Chronic Unresponsive Symptoms



Abstract

Background and Objectives: Few reviews have examined the overall effectiveness of a complete treatment philosophy upon the suffering of the chronically ill whose only inclusion requirement to be in the study is that nothing they have done in the conventional or alternative medicine treatment philosophies had ever provided any relief. This case review used a daily interview approach to examine the improvements experienced in the wide range of symptoms after 5 and 10 days of the various tailored treatments and therapies unique to the healing philosophy of American Biological Medicine (ABM) as performed at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health in Wichita, Kansas.
 
Goals: The goal of this study is to take participants through a maximally applied knowledge and effort to restore the functional and structural integrity of the entire human organism, as opposed to the minimum effort and reductionist philosophies of conventional medicine.
 
The goal is to document the rapid relief that is possible even in cases that had not responded to any natural or conventional medicine. The ultimate goal in Biological Medicine’s philosophy of treatment is to restore health in order to provide  lasting improvement, although the long-term tracking of improvements is outside of the parameters of this report.
 
Methods: Twenty-nine individuals experiencing diverse chronic unresponsive symptoms were accepted for participation and completed the full 2-week protocol.  The treatment protocol included ten days (Monday through Friday) for two straight weeks. Each day included at least one hour of one-on-one doctor treatments and approximately four additional hours of therapies.
 
The group reported a total of 385 symptoms. Although every participant in this study had previously received classical diagnosis of several named diseases, it is not the philosophy of American Biological Medicine to diagnose and treat named diseases.  American Biological Medicine specializes in restoring health and functional integrity to the entire human being, using all the sciences, and from this stance the various symptoms are improved.
 
Statistics were gathered after completing five days and ten days of treatments.
 
This non-sham, non-blinded, in-house study was conducted and results compiled and reported from daily interviews of the participants by the attending doctor .
 
American Biological Medicine is unique in its healthcare philosophy in that it encompasses the knowledge of the complete interconnectedness of all the body systems, as well as the concept of the body being set up on somewhat dedicated circuits with each organ sharing an energetic connection with specific glands, neurological tissues, joints, muscles, and emotions. As such, anything that goes wrong along any aspect of one of these circuits will cause the entire circuit to suffer a decrease in functional integrity. 
 
American Biological Medicine is also unique in that it views all the healing sciences, techniques, and technologies as tools that are to be skillfully and synergistically implemented within each office visit by the doctor.  The more various healing tools a doctor can bring to bear on a case the more likely it is that they will have the correct tool for the task at hand.  The knowledge level of the doctor of ABM enables all of the various treatment modalities to be used dynamically by the attending doctor under one roof.
 
The AMB doctor seeks to utilize the correct tools for the condition at hand., applying virtually all the various treatments himself dynamically as determined by his testing. Doctors specializing in ABM are trained to have mastery of physical medicine, radiological and conventional laboratory testing, nutritional and energy medicine, and all of the natural life and healing sciences. The goal of each doctor treatment is to identify and address any issue that may be interfering with the body’s own ability to heal. Each treatment is applied with the understanding that it must work with the body’s own wisdom and design and each treatment, whether manual, energetic, or nutritive must work synergistically with each other and synergistically with the efforts of the body, without harming or disrupting any aspect of the human organism. The true restoration of health of any aspect of the human organism is addressed in ABM, no matter how remote the issue is to the area in which the symptoms are being experienced.
 
The testing protocol used the dynamic adjunctive testing techniques of American Biological Medicine, to include BioResonance Scanning, Computerized Regulation Thermography, Tongue and eye diagnostics, physical examination, neurological and orthopedic testing. 
 
Treatments included one hour per day utilizing but not limited to, dynamic testing to systematically align all body systems, electromagnetic field balancing, neurological balancing,, musculoskeletal alignments, Multi-posture/Intraoral Cranial Fixation therapy, NeuroPhotonic Therapies, homeopathy, botanical medicine, nutrition, essential oils, polarity treatments, myofascial release therapy, detoxification therapies, dietary counseling, lifestyle counseling, and emotional counseling, and lymphatic stimulation.
 
No symptom-masking remedies were utilized throughout this study, such as natural, OTC, or pharmaceutical pain relievers.
 
Analyses examined self-reported, subjective, symptom severity or improvement. Objective improvements were apparent, yet are outside of the confines of this report.

Results: The case review goals were met with 85%, 327 of the 385 total symptoms for the group showing improvement after 10 days of treatment and 273 symptoms (71%) after just five days of treatment. Significant to this study was that 110 symptoms (29%) reported as no longer present by the end of 5 days of treatment. There were 174 symptoms (45%) reported as no longer present by the end of 10 days of treatment

With respect to symptom variability, 2 distinct subgroups were observed, with approximately ninety-four percent of participants reporting high levels of improvement and six percent reporting low levels of improvement. There were no significant variations in response to treatment based upon the severity of the symptoms, how long the patient had suffered from their symptoms, age, or gender. No serious adverse events occurred during or after 10 treatment sessions.

Total number of symptoms reported by group:                            385
Total number of symptoms improved in 5 days                           273            71%
Total number of symptoms improved in 10 days                         328           
85%
Total number of symptoms that did not improve in 10 days          57            15%

Total number of symptoms reported 25% better in 5 days           68             18%

Total number of symptoms reported 25% better in 10 days         42             11%

Total number of symptoms reported "No Complaint” in 5 days   110            29%

Total number of symptoms reported "No Complaint” in 10 days 174            45%


Discussion: It has been reported that 88% of all conventional medicine treatments address an illness by seeking to suppress the symptoms through pharmaceutical drugs or invasive interventions. This is the definition of the Allopathic Medicine philosophy. Allopathic Medicine’s philosophy treats pain with pain-relievers, allergies with antihistamines, infections with antibiotics, depression with antidepressants, and so on. Due to the fact that the symptom suppression treatment never seeks to identify the interfering causative factors the best that can be hoped for with this philosophy is drug-dependence and remission of symptoms.

The results of this short case study demonstrate that it is possible to enable often rapid and dramatic improvements by seeking to restore the health and integrity of the whole organism.  With the ABM goal of true restoration of health, the patient does not need to continue with years of treatments, or continue taking medicines, supplements, or remedies in order to continue feeling well.

Conclusion:
 The criterion for being included in this case review was any person with chronic symptoms who has not improved with any conventional or alternative treatments. Many studies have been performed reporting on the efficacy of the various treatment modalities utilized in this review, such as meridian therapy, homeopathy, nutrition, etc. Very few studies have attempted to study the effectiveness of a complete healing philosophy (American Biological Medicine) that encompasses many different modalities applied as a functional system.


This study is designed to answer some primary questions.  How effective is the treatment system of American Biological Medicine, and can it improve the lives of a group of chronically ill patients whom no conventional or alternative medicines had been able to improve.  The study is limited to what occurred within the first two weeks of care.

The significance of these results must be recognized in the context of the fact that each of the 385 symptoms was reported as non-responsive to all previous conventional and alternative medicine. The limitations of this study are that the long-term correction and symptom relief was not followed at the time of this publication. 

Excluded from this review were any persons suffering from suicidal tendencies, severe psychological disorders, late-stage cancer, and anyone without the ability to get themselves on and off the treatment/therapy tables.

In conclusion, this case review effectively demonstrated the ability of the comprehensive healing philosophy of American Biological Medicine to dramatically provide the restoration of health by addressing core interferences resulting in significant relief of chronic, unrelenting symptoms. While the long-term improvement and true restoration of health is always the ultimate goal, ten days of treatment is a not realistic amount of time and treatments to completely address all the dynamic nature of conditions that have been present for many years. With continued support, beyond the two weeks, it is believed that lasting relief can be achieved in virtually any type of chronic illness.

This case review would ideally be repeated with an independent reviewer and a grant to enable a six to twelve month study based upon the same initial two week protocol followed by a determined amount of follow up treatments. A review of these patients would be carried out over a five and ten year interval to determine the long-term effect of the treatment philosophy of American Biological Medicine.

This case review is observational in nature, based upon individual case studies as specified herein.

Natural Ways to Address Insomnia


This article is a compilation of a series on natural ways to treat insomnia from Dr. Jernigan's Daily Health Tips on Facebook. Join us at www.facebook.com/doctordavidjernigan

You must create the most ideal sleeping experience for yourself. Take the time and effort to make your bedroom as aesthetically pleasing as you can afford. Clutter and chaos is not conducive to rest and sleep. If you have the money, invest in a completely organic, nontoxic mattress from The Healthy Bed Store. (www.thehealthybedstore.com) At the very least, buy yourself an organic, non-toxic mattress topper. Buy the best organic pillows and organic cotton sheets you can afford.

Never use any scented laundry soaps or scented fabric softeners. These scents can kill...literally! Use fragrance-free everything in your room. Diffuse essential oils instead of poisonous scented air "fresheners" and plug-ins! Place broad-leaf plants in your bedroom to add negative-ions into the air. Broad-leaf plants can also clean the air of your room, as well as shift the energy of the room. Just get advice from your local garden center as to how to keep it watered to prevent mold in the soil.

Put a Grounding Mat on your mattress to enable your body to continually discharge any accumulated static electricity and other environmental frequencies that may be bombarding your body from the wiring and electronics of your house, wi-fi, and computers.

Resist the temptation to lie or recline on the bed to read, rest, or watch television. As it is said, the bed is for sleeping and dying. Psychologically you want your brain and body to only think of the bed as the place to sleep.

Turn off your wi-fi and computers all the way. Don't leave them on "sleep" mode.
We need to start winding down our day pretty soon after 8 p.m. This means turning off the news, getting off the internet, letting go of the challenges of the day, telling all of your friends and family to not text, call, or email after 9 p.m. or so. If they do, don't answer it unless you can remain calm and it is something that wont stimulate your stress levels. Set good boundaries with your friends and family. If you have children, establish a "quiet time" for reading or just settling down before bedtime. Night time is not your time to worry and try to resolve all the problems of the day.

Take 1000 mg of L-Tryptophan just before dinner. This will start the process of resetting the satiety center of the brain. About an hour before bedtime, drink about three ounces of fruit juice, or eat the equivalent of a 1/4 of an apple about 5 minutes before taking 1000-2000 mg of L-Tryptophan. The fruit sugar will cause a small release of insulin. Insulin is needed to grab on to the Tryptophan, which then rushes it up to the satiety center of the brain. L-Tryptophan is the "enough" amino acid. It enables your brain to feel like you have done enough, eaten enough, and said enough, so that you can let the challenges of the day go.

Use a Dry Skin Brush all over your body, stroking towards the heart to stimulate the lymphatic system and knock the dead skin and caked soap off of your skin. This will also bring the blood to the surface so that the bath you are about to take works better. Take an Epsom Salt and Hydrogen Peroxide bath and soak for 20 minutes. Do this about 30 minutes to an hour before going to bed. Drink a large mug of Sleepy Time tea from Traditional Medicinals Inc. Once you finish your bath and are dried off, apply Solum Aesculus oil, from Uriel Pharmacy, on your legs, feet, arms and hands. Solum Aesculus oil helps restore the warmth organization of your body and puts a protective barrier around your body to shield it from environmental and weather-related sensitivies that might be keeping you awake.

Take 50 mg of vitamin B-6, (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) not the cheaper forms, such as Pyridoxal-hydrochloride. Take this amount for a week, then increase by 50 mg each week until you reach a maximum of 200 mg a day in divided doses throughout the day. If you start getting tingling in your extremities you are taking too much. It is not harmful if you just back down on your dosage again.

Just before closing your eyes to go to sleep take 3-6 mg of Melatonin. Once you take the Melatonin do not look at any light source. If you have trouble darkening your room completely, it may be very neccesary to use a sleep mask and even possibly wrap your head in a dark scarf that will cover the head and forehead, since the pineal gland can sense even the smallest amount of light and negate the melatonin from your body and from the supplement. It may help to diffuse an essential oil, such as Peace and Calming blend by Young Living Oils.

 A half hour before bed drink an 8 ounce glass of water with a 1/2 tsp of Alkalime powder, by Young Living Essential Oil company, or just use 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda (Not Baking Powder). This will alkalize the brain and can often prevent nightmares and exhausting busy dreams, not to mention help keep you from having to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

The following are tools and techniques to help get your brainwaves in sync with sleep and keep you asleep until morning. Combining all of the tips in this series will go a long way to not only getting to sleep, but also having restful sleep.

If you have speakers that you can put on either side of your bed place them so that they both face your pillow. Good quality external computer speakers work well for this purpose, although any good speakers will work. If you don't have speakers then you can use the best quality headphones or in a pinch you can use Earbuds.
 
Download into your ipod, or mp3 player the CD's called Deep Relaxation and Super Sleep from HemiSync company. You can make a playlist that can have just a couple of songs. Use the HemiSync Deep Relaxation CD when you lay down to sleep.

Adjust the volume to your comfort level. It does not need to be loud. Then have the very next CD be the HemiSync Super Sleep. The Deep Relaxation has verbal guidance that instructs how to relax your body and mind. Most people fall asleep by the end of this CD, however if you don't fall asleep, just continue relaxing, keep your mind quiet, and let the next CD which is the Super Sleep CD do its work. You can let the Super Sleep play all night if you like. Set your alarm on your player to awaken you with the HemiSync CD called Morning Exercise. Upon awakening to this CD just lay there and let your body and mind wake up to the entire CD.

Make sure your room is as dark as possible. If you have any light getting in around your curtains or blinds you need to mask it somehow. Use a natural fiber sleep mask, if it is impossible to have a completely dark room. A good option to promote sleep is the Nikken Magnetic Sleep Mask. Turn the dimmer of your alarm clock to its lowest setting. If it does not have a dimmer then wrap it in a black pair of hose to dim the light. Turn off any night lights.

It can help to calm the neurons of the brain by placing a 1/2" x 4" x 6" ceramic magnet under your pillow with the negative polarity facing the head. Never use the positive polarity of the magnet facing your head as this will over-stimulate the brain and promote hyper-acidity. (Available by calling our clinic 316-686-5900)

If you awaken in the night to go to the bathroom, stay as "asleep" as possible and only open your eyes just enough to not run into anything. Keep your mind completely quiet. Be sure not to look at any light to and from the bathroom. Go right back to bed without checking the time.

Other considerations must be addressed by your doctor of natural medicine depending upon your unique sleep problems.

Many sleep problems can be resolved by Biological Dentists that specialize in correcting the position of your bite and tongue. The tongue often falls back in your throat compromising the airway. When this happens, the adrenals kick out adrenaline to wake you and get you breathing again. This adrenaline also causes your bladder to want to empty. It can cause panic and anxiety, not to mention nightmares that wake you up.

Chinese medicine describes a busy brain syndrome that prevents sleep that is caused by what is called a Spleen Qi Deficiency. Chinese formulations, such as Gui Pi Wan by Plum Flower brand, or Gather Vitality, by K'an Herbals company, were developed over 1000 years ago to correct the fluid regulation and transportation problems that are caused by too much mental stimulation. This over mental stimulation is very common in the chronically ill person because their body is too sick to have a real life, so the person is stuck essentially living in their head. This busy brain can lead to obsessing over figuring out one's illness, digging and pouring and surfing the internet until you are causing this Spleen Qi syndrome. This is also seen in college students who become overloaded mentally.

Epigenetic miasms are described in homeopathy that deal with inherited tendencies to being a night owl and groggy and/or grumpy in the morning. The homeopathic remedy that addresses this is called Medorrhinum. Only a doctor or practitioner highly trained in homeopathy should determine which miasm remedy you need.

Progesterone can help both men and women with sleep issues if it is tested as being too low. A saliva test should be performed to test progesterone levels. It is a good idea to have a 24-hour saliva cortisol test and DHEA test performed for those who are feeling stressed out all of the time or those who are exhausted yet cannot sleep. This test can be done using a test kit from DiagnosTech, Inc.

Use EFT to address the emotional distress revolving around the conviction that you are not going to be able to go to sleep. Learn how to do EFT at this link from Dr. Mercola: http://eft.mercola.com/

Control your thinking and don't let yourself get uptight about anything. Do the best you can at what you do each day and at the end of the day, let the issues of the day go. You have done all you can do for one day. "Lean not unto your own understanding" of how things will work out.

When I trained in Anthroposophical Medicine in Germany, the doctors taught me a process that can help not just with sleep, but with life in general. The point of the exercise is to allow the subconscious to finish processing anything that was incompletely processed from the day. Remember, almost 90% of what your brain processes each day is on the subconscious level. Anything that your subconscious brain didn't get fully processed during the day will set up an irritation to the conscious brain. This loss of equilibrium between the subconscious and conscious mind often feels like anxiety about something you cannot quite define.

To correct this problem, the German doctors said you should take 15-20 minutes when you first lay down to sleep and replay your day in reverse. In your mind, see yourself like you are watching a movie of yourself starting to get into bed, and retrace in your mind everything prior to that, such as you getting ready for bed, and see yourself all the way through your day when you first woke up that morning.

The point is NOT to rehash things in your mind, or to do the "woulda-shoulda" thing about the situations in your day. You should simply watch it without judgement. The point is not to resolve things on an emotional and/or mental level, but to allow your subconscious to have the chance to revisit and find balance about things it didn't process through completely. This process gets easier once you get used to it. You will notice you go to sleep and awaken more settled in your mind and spirit.
 
I also want to discuss those people who may get to sleep fine, yet awaken at specific times during the night.

You may recall my health tip on the fact that if all of the body's energy had to go to all the organ circuits all the time, there would not be enough energy to go around. Each organ circuit has its time of highest energy being dedicated to it.

Often there is a body clock "time zone" problem that is the issue, causing a circuit that should only be active during the daytime to be getting its time of highest energy at the wrong time, night time. For example, the bladder circuit, which should have its time of highest energy between 3-5 p.m. This type problem can only be addressed by a doctor trained to correct the body's "clock" and "time zones."
 

My primary focus here is on those whose organ clock and time zones are correct, yet problems within those organ circuits are so bad that they wake you up.

A common time to awaken in the night is between 1-3 a.m., which is the liver's time of highest energy. People who awaken every night during this time might benefit greatly from taking some liver support supplements during the day and again just before going to sleep. It could help to take more if you still awaken between 1-3 a.m. even after taking a supplement during the day and at bedtime.

A good general liver support supplement for this purpose is Total Liver Detox, by NutriWest Inc. A general recommendation of 1-3 pills, 2-3 times a day for most adults is well tolerated. Check with your doctor before starting any new supplement.

I feel it is worth finishing with this tip for those people who awaken every night between 3-5 a.m.

The lung circuit is getting the most energy from the body between 3-5 a.m. and by supporting the lung circuit you can often just “cruise” right on through to a more reasonable time for the rooster to crow.

People who awaken between 3-5 a.m. often have acid reflux, though not always. Having acid reflux/heart burn is due to the fact that the diaphragm muscle is on the same circuit with the lungs. When there is a problem with the lungs, the diaphragm muscle loses tone and the hole in the diaphragm where the esophagus passes through to the stomach gets bigger. This allows the stomach to herniated up into the chest cavity and often causes acid reflux.

Your doctor of natural medicine is likely able to pull the stomach down and out of the chest cavity manually…no surgery required! Then you must support the integrity of the lungs with a good supplement, such as Core Level Lung, by NutriWest, Inc.

A good general adult dosage recommendation would be 2-3 pills, 2-3 times a day, or as directed by your doctor, whom you should check with before starting any new supplement.

There are obviously many potential reasons your lungs might be having problems, such as infections, toxins, asthma, and other breathing problems. These will need to be addressed by your healthcare team.

Hopefully these tips, when combined, will result in a very restful and satisfying night’s sleep, allowing you to awaken refreshed and ready to face the day!

May you find a peaceful nights sleep tonight and every night!
