Health for Sex; Sex for Health

Health for Sex; Sex for Health was the title of a lecture I gave at the Los Angeles Conscious Life Expo two years ago.  With a title like that, I had people sitting in the aisles to hear this subject!  We’ve all learned that a healthy mind and body can improve all human activities, including sex. But studies show that sex in turn can improve one’s overall health. Since the right use of sexual energy is such a critical health factor, this has to be included among the many topics in my upcoming workshop next Sunday 11/2: Anti-Aging Lifestyle: How to Turn On All the Brains of the Body for Inner and Outer Rejuvenation.

Hindi loversGiven the increasing stresses in our lives, many women and men at fifty are already burned-out and feeling non-sexual, non-orgasmic; feeling over the hill and throwing in the towel.  Often, they are also sluggish, achey, depressed and a bit overweight.

On the other hand, many women in their fifties and sixties are reporting ever-increasing numbers of orgasms and sexual responsiveness in general. Why is that?  Why a cumulative effect? Are they simply feeling more entitled to pleasure than their mothers did? Exercising more than their mothers? Less hampered by birth control than their younger selves? Refusing to pay attention to their numerical age? Listening to the wisdom that ever-unfolding age brings—that joy can be truly ever-expanding? That Growth actually DOES continue–if rightly attended to??

There are many reports on the overall benefits of sexual arousal for the human body. Vaginal stimulation has been found to counteract chronic back and leg pain, reduce menstrual cramps, arthritic pain, and in some cases even headaches. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that men who ejaculated frequently (at least 21 times a month) were less likely to get prostate cancer. Joseph J. Pinzone, MD sites a landmark study on how sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic blood pressure.  The list goes on…

254106_233249770025466_6994835_nI will share methods for propagating the feel-good hormones that have been suppressed in our systems for so long–feeling good as a prelude to sex or for its own sake. Every organ takes part in the sexual experience, and the polimorphous pleasure receptors in every cell can be further activated–with or without sex.  The currents up the spine can get fully charged.  When we increase our base-line of wellbeing then we can enhance our energies, including sexual energies.  The feedback loop that these energies create has an exponential effect.  Everything gets enhanced!  And when we handle sexual energy intelligently and intentionally, we create more psychic and physiological force. 

Lots to explore next Sunday.  Come join us!  At the Village Church, 343 Church Lane, between Montana & Sunset just west of the 405 Freeway. 1:30–4:30.  Refreshments.  $20.  RSVP and Reserve your seat by clicking on this website calendar page.

 

 

 

 

Our Genes affected by Epigenes

Our genes affected by epigenes?  Who knew? I was rereading an earlier blog I’d posted about Angelina Jolie’s choice to remove her breasts prophylactically because of her trusting the bad advice that her compromised genes should dictate this action.  I felt that some of the info deserved repeating. Here is the gist of the article by Sayer Ji at GreenMedInfo.com in my previous blog that, despite so-called ‘evidence-based medicine,’ acknowledges the most current evidence of genetics.

Christiane's statueBasically he states that, following the completion of the first draft of the entire human genome in 2000, the central dogma of molecular biology – that our DNA controls protein expression, and therefore disease risk – was disproved. Our genome was found to contain roughly only 20,000 genetic instructions  – not even enough to account for the 100,000 proteins in the human body!”

As a result, we now know that the field of epigenetics or ”Junk genes,” is much more important than genes.  Epigenetic factors are influenced by a combination of nutrition, lifestyle factors, environmental exposures, and psychospiritual states that feed back into our physiology.  They constitute as high as 95% of what determines any disease risk. In fact, ”even the psychological trauma associated with being diagnosed with cancer is enough to drive a malignancy via adrenaline-mediated multi-drug resistance, and according to a recent NEJM study, leads up to a 26-fold increased risk of heart-related deaths in the seven days following diagnosis.”  ETH Zurich. “Epigenetics: DNA Isn’t Everything.” ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 13 April 2009. . In other words, our mental/emotional state can influence directly the physiological activity of healthy and cancerous cells, more than our inherited ancestral genes.

 

Huffington Post on Swiss Homeopathy

The Huffington Post on Homeopathy in Switzerland:  A treatment written by my friend Dana Ullman in 2012.  Homeopathic medicine is a medical practice that reduces natural substances to a submolecular state so as to release the energetic signature of the element.  Since our physical system operates on electromagnetic frequencies, as measured in the heart and head by EEGs and EKGs for instance), this energy medicine can induce healing changes on a very deep level.

According to Ullman, the Swiss government “Health Technology Assessment” has determined that homeopathic medicine is effective and more cost-effective than conventional medicine.  The report was the most comprehensive review to date of any governmental body on the scientific evidence on homeopathic medicine. It was a thorough analysis of a wide variety of clinical studies and laboratory research. The report also reviewed the body of evidence on Homeopathy’s cost effectiveness.   Savings were a 15.4% reduction compared to conventional treatments. Surveys estimate that 57 percent of the Swiss population uses complementary medicine, and about 40 percent of all medical practitioners in Switzerland prescribed alternative treatments.

Circulation problems need not be inevitable

Circulation problems need not be chronic nor inevitable.  Yes, sluggish blood flow is the underlying cause of pain and most internal problems.  Blood and lymph stasis is a recurring reason why we bipeds do not always function very well, or feel very well.  How can it pump upstream against the force of gravity? How can the feet withstand the pressure of our entire body on those few square inches?  And the lymph has no pump at all.  Movement is essential to keep it flowing.

At a certain age, powerful herbal tonics are imperative to help the arterial walls from getting blocked.   There are excellent remedies that can stimulate the flow of these energizing fluids–both blood and lymph.  Herbal and Homeopathic remedies work wonders to support this system.   Ischemia is an insufficient supply of blood to any organ, usually due to internal congealed phlegm build-up, and cooling sluggish  microcirculation.  Instead of resorting to drugs with side effects, consider an herbal tonic alone or in addition, that goes deeper to undo blockages.  To review the action of the heart, check out this link:

blood-cells.jpgI depend on formulas from many companies but my current favorite is Evergreen Herbs.  Their webinar on the fifty most popular conventional drugs listed each corollary Chinese formula that achieved a deeper, superior effect with no side effects.  Their formula called ”Circulation” invigorates the heart muscle and deals with blood clots, embolisms, peripheral neuropathy, and general cerebral and and coronary circulation.  It is only available through a practitioner but it provides great support to the Acupuncture treatments.  Having a daily support that cools or warms, clears, strengthens, and balances—is invaluable.

Skin is our largest electric eliminatory organ

Skin is our largest electric eliminatory organ that feeds and reflects our inner health. We use it to detoxify through excretions, sweat, and through the sloughing off of our old dead skin. Let’s look at useful ways we can rejuvenate it, and even better, how we can use it to rejuvenate the rest of us.

IMG_1240This dermal covering is alive with intelligence and processes. It is the threshold between the inner and outer, and it affects us in both directions. We now know that the body, just like planet Earth, is comprised of electrical wiring and magnetic fields of energy.  And some of its most active energy pathways flow along the three thin layers of the skin. Since they are only ‘skin deep,’ we can easily manipulate them in order to balance and fix many functions in the body.

The bio-electric conduits called meridians run all through the body, connecting the major organs with each other and rising to the surface of the body in the dermal layer. Fourteen meridians, named after each major organ, run along the surface, making the skin act as a computer keyboard for the body. An acupuncturist can stimulate  points along these energy pathways and thus rearrange the excesses and deficiencies in the internal organs or in the muscles and sinews. Consequently, improved health inside will reflect in the quality of the skin outside…

IMG_0331So skin is particularly electric.  Touch and massage can affect it, as well as the underlying interior tissue. 

How did we get along without this knowledge and this ability to stimulate and sedate?  It makes health so easy–once you get it.  Of course we’re electric.  Why only allow for EEGs and EKGs?  Yes, the brain and heart are the most electrical parts but the skin can really light us up!
