Addiction:

If you have a compulsive behavior pattern such as smoking, over eating, drinking, TV watching, Internet addiction, or whatever this is what you can do…

When you notice the compulsive need arising in you, stop and take three conscious breaths.  This generates awareness.  Then for a few minutes be aware of the compulsive urge itself as an energy field inside you

Consciously feel that need to physically or mentally ingest or consume a certain substance or the desire to act out some form of compulsive behavior.

Then take a few more conscious breaths.

After that you may find that the compulsive urge has disappeared-for the time being-or you may find that it still overpowers you, and you cannot help but indulge or act it out again.  Don’t make it into a problem.  Make the addiction part of your awareness practices in the way mentioned above.

As awareness grows, addictive patterns will weaken and eventually dissolve.

Remember, however, to catch any thoughts that justify the addictive behavior, sometimes with clever arguments, as the arise in your mind.

Ask yourself, who is talking here; and you will realize the addiction is talking.  As long as you know that, as long as you are present as the observer of your mind, it is less likely to trick you into doing what it wants.

Try it, what do you have to lose but an addiction damaging your health and mental well being!!

Iodine in the Prevention and Cure of Allergies

do you know how strong acid can be?

When you eat a protein, stomach acid must break the proteins down into amino acids.  As the digested food reaches the small intestine, the amino acids are absorbed so the body can make and repair proteins.

However if you don’t have enough stomach acid, whole or partially digested proteins reach the small intestine and are absorbed.  The body recognizes these as foreign since it didn’t make them.  Thus you become allergic to the foods you normally eat.

The Reason for this allergy is lack of stomach acid.  Making stomach acid requires Iodine, Zinc, Vitamin B1, Water, Salt, and Carbon Dioxide.  The amount of Iodine in table salt is about 1/1000 of what you need, there is no Iodine in sea salt, and our soils are devoid of Iodine.  About 80% of the population is deficient in Zinc.  Thus most people have allergies because they can’t make stomach acid.

Taking Antacids or drugs that stop acid production don’t solve the problem, they cover up the problem and further create the problem.  Without stomach acid you can’t absorb Zinc even if you take it.  There are over 350 Biochemical Reactions that rely on Zinc, including the production of neurochemical.  If you take drugs that shut down your stomach acid, you will become depressed because you can’t make Serotonin.

If you have allergies, your adrenals are tired and dysfunctional.  You are drawn to CATS(caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and sugar).  they give you temporary relief, but they place additional demands on your adrenals.

Find out what you are allergic too.  Avoid those foods for up to 6 months.  take Iodine, Zinc, Vitamin B1 to start making stomach acid.  While correcting those deficiencies, take Betaine with each meal.  This pill from the beet plant makes stomach acid so you won’t become allergic to the new set of foods while you are becoming able to make your own stomach acid in a normal way.

Bowen Therapy can help rebalance your body and flush your adrenals while you are helping your body to heal.

You can also check out the liquid supplement on my website for Iodine as liquids are more absorbable, this is called Limu Plus.

To your heal, I will discuss how to help your Adrenals in the next post, so stay tuned!

Probiotic Assist with:

1.competition against harmful micro-organisms including candida preventing colonization of pathogens through the production of inhibitory substances including acids and hydrogen peroxide and natural antibiotics

2.enhancement of digestion of lactose(milk sugar)

3.immune enhancement, including enhanced macrophase activity

4.reduction in the levels of and deactivation of potential cancer causing chemicals, particularly in the colon and direct anti-tumor activity of certain strains

5.reduction in liver toxicity

6.enhancement of peristalsis,digestion,regularity and re-absorption of nutrients, in infants, promotion of healthy digestive tract colonization

7.enhancement and balance of estrogen levels, prevention of osteoporosis through increased calcium uptake

8.protection against food poisoning, travelers’ diarrhea, allergies, skin problems

9.enhancement of vitamin status(B,K)digestion of proteins, fats, carbohydrates

 





Our Deepest Fear

It Is Our Light

OUR DEEPEST FEAR

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is
within us.
It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously
give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
