The origin of auto immune disease=AIDS. Severe over response from the immune system. The medical community had no tools in their toolbox to handle this. From AIDS we went to a variety of immune conditions: Epstein Barr, Lyme Disease even Rhumatoid Arthritis or some call it Reactive Arthritis.
In natural medicine it can simply be put as an imbalance in the immune system where there is severe inflammation and pain. There is more than likely some kind of microbe involved. You need to figure out what is causing the body to react.
Nourishing bone broth; herbs that calm inflammation and safe and effective CBD to work with the Endocannabinoid system in getting the body back to balance. One herb that stands out is Blood Root.
Ninety percent of the people who cometo see me do so for emotional pain. Many of these people have tried several methods of dealing with their pain. Seeing a counselor or therapist may help so you can talk about your pain without someone judging you. They often will give you assignments such as writing in a journal or meditating etc. They often will prescribe medications to help numb the pain while you work through the process. Continually staying on drugs that numb your pain does not address the underlying cause. I once read a very informative book: Feelings Buried Alive Never Die. The author, Karol K. Truman, says that the most difficult thing to communicate, especially to ourselves, is feelings. What one person may label sad, another may express as anger. I absolutely love Dr. Daniel Amenís answer about negative feelings: He relates that first there is a thought, and that thought determines our feelings, and that feeling determines our attitude etc. So, to stop this merry go round one must first examine: How Does that thought make me feel? And if you donít like the feeling, you ask: How would I feel if I didnít have that thought? And if your answer is happy or some other positive emotion, then the next step is to think about that which makes you feel happy because-- thoughts LIE! Most of the time what we think isnít true. We assume!
Dr. Amenís popular book: Change your Brain, Change your Life discusses how to correct negative thinking so you can live a happier and more productive loving life. He has written a module for Natureís Sunshine because he feels that good nutrition is integral to being happy. If you werenít able to get this as part of the class held in Ann Arbor, plan on attending the Southfield Health Education Day on October 24th.
It makes no sense to me to take a fiber supplement that has dyes and artificial sweeteners in it.Fake coloring does not have a beneficial effect on the body. Yet, most doctors recommend Metamucil as a fiber supplement. This product is loaded with junk. The main ingredient in the original blend is psyllium husks. This part of the plant is very irritating to the colon.
Psyllium hulls are easier on the internal tissues of the colon, swell better to remove toxins and yet are more costly to produce. Husks are what we generally throw away when we shuck corn. Think of the hull as the fiberous part of the seed that doesnít digest. The seed is the inner part of the corn and has the most nutrition. The same with psyllium.
Oat bran is what is removed when you purchase instant oatmeal. Motherís Oats has the bran still attached. Instant oatmeal does not have as much fiber as an oatmeal that needs to be cooked for a while.
Apple pectin is what makes jelly set up. It is quite gelatinous and very soothing. When you add psyllium seed hulls, Oat bran fiber and Apple pectin together you get Natureís Three. A dietary fiber that makes sense!
Add it to pancake mixes, waffles and even the blended egg wash for French toast for added fiber. You can find a lot of ways to add more of this delicious fiber to your diet. Taking it with Thai Go is also a beneficial way to help the colon stay healthy.
Make sure that when you do take a fiber supplement you donít take it at the same time as you take your Omega oil supplement. Fiber attracks oil and that is why it is so good in reducing cholesterol. But, when taking an Omega supplement you want to make sure you take it with a meal and perhaps some enzymes to get the best use of it.
A Natural Hand Sanitizer that works!Were you distressed to hear that the majority of hand sanitizers do little to curb germ activity? Essential oils have been used for centuries to deter pathogens. One very nice recipe for having on hand when water and soap arenít available is: Put 4oz. of Aloe Vera Gel in a 6oz. squeeze bottle; add 1 oz. NSP Massage Oil and 15-20 drops of essential oil. You can use Lemon, Lavender or Peppermint and add a few drops of Tea Tree. When you shake this combination up it makes a delightful creamy lotion that nourishes your hands while protecting against germs.
