Korean Hand Acupuncture Rules the Brain

Did you know that your hand rules the brain, according to Korean Hand Acupuncture? Our human body never fails to impress us with its inner intelligence and its internal communication system. The ear, hand, and foot are each microcosms of the entire body. Each can serve as a keyboard to program and affect any other part of the body.  Hand points can reveal real time information about tHomonculushe entire body and is a holographic record of the whole.

Hand acupuncture has developed due to the large role that the hand plays in the brain. This picture illustrates how the brain experiences the hands and mouth. The particularly high concentration of neurological connections between the hands and the brain means that the hand is the most able of all body parts to activate the brain. The brain will follow its direction and relay its neural messages to the body.

The amount of brain cortex devoted to any given body region is proportional to how richly innervated that region is, not to the region’s physical size. Thus the brain devotes disproportionately larger space to the hands (grabbing, defending, feeding, working) and mouth (talking, breathing, eating, sucking).

Acupuncturist Dr. Tae Woo Yoo, OMD, Ph.D., of South Korea discovered the reflex potential of the hand and laid out the holographic mapping of the body on the hands.

hand stim cropFor example, in Korean Hand Therapy [KHT], the little finger corresponds to the leg. Therefore, any leg problem will have a corresponding tender point on the little finger. Stimulation of that point on the pinkie will give pain relief and healing support on the leg. The most effect stimulation is the placement of a teeny magnet taped over that point, staying in place for at least 30 minutes. The treatment is simple, painless, fast acting, and easily repeated until the condition is resolved. Hands on!

 

Tune up Back Pain and Internal Organs

Most doctors do not try to tune up internal organs while treating back pain.  Yet that is part and parcel of acupuncture treatment.  When our back aches it is often the cause AND the result of various other underlying problems in the body. While inflammation can migrate to any number of joints and limbs, it often gravitates to the overworked lower spine.  A treatment of acupuncture combined with heat and special massage techniques will often give immediate relief and restore lumbar flexibility.

What is not generally known is that this same treatment protocol often results in improvements in the kidneys, bladder, sexual organs and intestines as well.  Many people report fewer sleep interruptions from urination during the night.  Some have noticed improvements in prostate function, erectile dysfunction or frigidity, and menstrual issues.  Therefore we see that treating the spinal muscles, spinal fluid, bones and nerves affects all the neighboring organs. Sometimes knee pain is misdiagnosed as a local problem when it actually stems from a low back issue. Likewise many pains in the lower leg originate from the sacrum.

Male Back pointsTo grasp the effectiveness of acupuncture is to realize that an acupuncture meridian has all the properties of a laser beam. Visualizing our bodies as a light-streaming entity helps us to appreciate the magnitude of this electromagnetic energy system. Consequently, the manipulation of certain points along these light streams can have ramifications in many directions. Repairing one short circuit can activate many appliances!

A NATURAL Antibiotic

Herbal ABX 2Is there such a thing as a natural antibiotic? Actually there are several remedies that can affect bacterial as well as viral infections and inflammations.  One I order regularly from Evergreen Herbs: HERBAL ABX [Herbal Antibiotic].  With eleven Chinese herbs, it has broad spectrum antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal effects. It addresses all kinds of infections, with or without fever: respiratory, gastrointestinal, and urinary tract infections, hepatic disorders, and sexually transmitted diseases.

Why would one use such a thing when the heavy duty antibiotics are available?  Well, we have all heard that many ”super bugs” are becoming impervious to antibiotics due to overuse.  Furthermore, antibiotics disrupt the ”good” bacteria that we desperately need to help break down and digest our food.  Our systems are becoming desensitized from ingesting meats treated with antibiotics.  And many times, antibiotics with unpleasant side effects, clean up the current bacterial mess without addressing the underlying condition that brought on the microbial overload.

Stress, diet, environmental conditions, weather, contagion, etc.  If antibiotic treatment has so many downsides, then here is one product that can act as an insurance policy to reduce or even PREVENT inflammations.  One 80 yr. old patient got rid of a 12 years long sinus infection with Herbal ABX after many rounds of antibiotics through the years. ABX is only available through practitioners. I try to keep it on my shelf since it is so popular.

One formula for Menstruation and Menopause Symptoms?

Lilith RossettiIs it possible to find a single powerful formula for women in general for menstruation and menopause symptoms?  Something to cover most of the fluctuations that can occur in the intricate female system?  The Longevity Pure Medicine line has just such an all-round tonic for women: Female Essential. One important ingredient is Sepia, possibly the most famous female remedy in Homeopathic literature.  For over 100 years, homeopaths have extracted Sepia from the ink of cuttlefish to treat depression, menstrual problems, and menopausal symptoms like hot flashes.

A tiny Sepia pill would typically contain 1/100th of a molecule of cuttlefish ink. Just like the effects of splitting the atom, this breaking down of the substance unleashes the atom’s energetic potential without the dense material substance. The discovery of this homeopathic extraction process became the basis for the development of  innoculations…the birth of vaccines.

Female EssentialA miraculous substance, Sepia is known to improve overall mood and eliminate irritability, especially useful during times of PMS or menopause. Practitioners may use the tincture for bodily aches, infertility, libido loss, or exhaustion.

Female Essentials helps with monthly PMS and cramps.  It seems to address most female issues by balancing heat and cold fluctuations.  If chemicals release MORE power when they are reduced, then they become more innately deep acting—not just a band aid to cover the underlying problem, like most conventional medicines.  For $10., a tube lasts forever.  Check it out!

 

How Acupuncture for Low Back Pain helps Organs too!

Male Back pointsMost people are unaware of how Acupuncture for low back pain helps internal organs too.  Its well known success for back pain usually goes much deeper than merely achieving pain relief.  The ramifications are much greater.  When I apply a treatment of acupuncture with heat, special massage techniques and Electromagnetic Stimulation [PEMF]—all effective for regenerating muscle and nerve tissue, I often see improvements in the kidneys, bladder, metabolism and intestines as well.  For instance, many people report fewer sleep interruptions for urination during the night.  Some have noticed improvements in prostate function, erectile dysfunction or frigidity, and in intestinal and menstrual issues.

Sciatic-nerve-ppic1When our back aches, it is often the cause AND result of various other underlying problems in the body.  While inflammation can migrate to other joints and limbs, it often gravitates to the lower spine–one of our most vulnerable spots.  And yet this area is a vital command center for our adrenal power activation.  Therefore, whether I use laser, PEMF, infrared heat or acupuncture needles,  I find treating the  arthritic build-up or injury of the vertebrae, nerves, and spinal fluid, will also affect the neighboring organs.

The acupuncture meridian channels have all the qualities of a laser beam. In fact they ARE laser beams. So manipulating acupuncture points can have ramifications in the 3-dimensional body and beyond… Multi-tasking at its best!
