The Value of Headaches: Finding Underlying Causes

My 3+mins. video: ”The Value of Headaches” brings home the importance of finding the underlying cause of a headache. If YOU have mystery headaches, you can find the correct diagnosis with acupuncture pulse diagnosis, tongue diagnosis, and other sources of information.  Usually the pain will abate quickly but the underlying cause still needs attention for

Can magnetism help oxygenate renegade cells?

Why is the Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Stimulator [PEMF] useful to help with one’s overall health terrain? Will it help a person dealing with cancer? In 1931 Dr. Warburg won his first Nobel Prize for proving cancer cells are low in oxygen primarily because they shift to a more primitive form of respiration which utilizes sugar

Marks on Michael Phelps? What is Cupping Again??

J What are those marks on Michael Phelps?  By now the public is hearing the term ”cupping.” Since I was interviewed last year by Agence France Press to do a demonstration of this procedure for their global media outreach, I will explain cupping again. Seems the sighting of Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston with cupping

Listen to Dennis Watts at midnighttonight on Coast to Coast with George Noory . And please sign this petition to get some action on Fukushima–a MUCH worse disaster than Chernobyl… The red & yellow is the boiling radioactive water being dumped daily–400 tons daily–contaminating more than just the Pacific. Listen to Dennis Watts discuss the

Ancestral Soul at Solstice Part III

Our ancestral soul at Solstice time is geared for extra holiday joy but sometimes instead we plummet from seasonal stress, especially after the holiday. Is there a solution–even one for the whole year? As described in my article in the Malibu Chronicle, (”Staying Balanced at the Winter Solstice, p. 49,) if our emotions are volatile

Ancestral Soul at Solstice Time Part II

blue winter 2Our ancestral soul at Solstice time is designed to be a blessing, not a curse.  So how to avoid the Holiday blues?? While we carry on the traditions of gaeity and solemnity during this season, our emotional centers are often wrought with negative reactions to life’s (and the season’s) challenges, and we can become even more sensitive at this time of year. We may not be part of a circle of loved ones.  As a result, we might suffer resentment since our culture programs us to focus on drama and conflict—in films, TV and in our own lives, which requires dramatic tension, adversity, crisis, and lots of pathos.
diaphonous bodySo the effects of stress are equally traumatic for the body whether we expose our poor nerves to our own real life dramas or to fictional ones; to bad memories of our life time or to the echos of our ancestors’ plights.  Over the years the ‘plaque’ of so many griefs, grievances, and resentments collects in the heart and solar plexus area of the body, the center of our emotional life.  This build-up creates an armoring across the middle. The free circulation of blood and lymph that we experienced as a child is now cut off at a chest-high bottleneck and no longer flows freely up and down from head to toe.  In Part III, I will share how to address to create champagne from this bottleneck.

Ancestral Memory and Solstice Energy Part I

Ancestral Memory and Solstice Energy is upon us.  This is  part of an article I wrote for the Malibu Chronicle.  Malibu Chronicle Malibu Chronicle.
As the winter solstice approaches, we shift our energies toward connecting and celebrating with others. In ages past, before we got entrenched in the huge commercial undertaking of The Shopping Season, our species used to be sensitive to the unique solstice energies that surround the planet when it is spiraling farthest from the sun.

Yule logBut if we breathe deeply into our inner space, we can still feel the ancestral memories—cultures lighting candles and fires—for the god Dionysus and Mithras, for Christmas, Chanukah and other festivals. Can we feel in our bones the memory of the Stonehenge Druids lighting candles as the sun’s rays hit the solstice stone? The Romans’ winter Saturnalia Festival consisted of two weeks of revelry allowing the upper and lower classes to mix, all dancing around a giant log that burned for two weeks.  A tradition carried on in Northern Europe resulting in a French log-shaped chocolate cake!

Can you feel this heritage, this ancient connection to our magnetic planet and the photons of astral energies? This interconnectedness with the past is expressed in Hegel’s theory of zeitgeist or time-spirit: the world as a giant organism unfolding as spirit and mind through time. Jung called this planetary emotional funnel the Collective Unconscious. These deeper memories are the carpeting of our subconscious.

And biologically, genetic studies reveal that we still carry the emotional joys and scars of our forefathers in our mitochondrial DNA. Until recently, we thought that our genetic make-up was inalterable. But this other kind of DNA, in contrast to nucleic DNA, is in fact accessible and re-programmable. Now we see that what our ancestors experienced leaves a biological imprint on us. We can affect this legacy by what we do, what we eat, and what we think. We can feel these influences and memories and choose how to react to them and to our current experiences. In Part II I will suggest ways to mitigate the negative heritage of our early centuries or our own early years, and enhance the positive legacy.

Massage with Acupuncture Treatment

Why do I always include massage with acupuncture treatment? The combination of Acupuncture and Massage can accomplish more together than either separately to breathe life back into muscles. While normal muscles are able to contract and relax without restrictions, over the years they can become gummed up [thixotropy]. Without the ability to contract freely, the muscle becomes weak, tight, and often painful. Overused muscles become chronically shorter, a result of fibrous scar tissue.  This then entraps the nerves running through the muscles, causing numbness and/or tingling sensations.

I apply several types of massage before and after needle or magnet application. While Acupuncture works directly on the laser beam-like meridians, GENTLE MASSAGE can nudge these muscles to let go and breathe again. My technique is to slowly allow the muscle to open up at its own speed without imposing painful pressure. Gradually I move into deeper massage that can access underlying muscle layers.  I believe that ”Hurts Good” is far enough and I always listen to the patient’s feedback.

Stressed muscles can block nutrients and oxygen from getting to where they need to go, and this will cause inflammation that allows toxins to build up in your muscle tissue, a feedback loop that contributes to yet more pain and stress. The combination of Massage and Acupuncture breaks up and releases the built-up toxins. With the toxins released, blood and oxygen can circulate as they should through one’s body.  Feel good endorphins are released, dopamine relaxes the brain, and the muscles then crave activity and exercise–as they did when they were part of a younger body!  Start the ball rolling!

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.

motor cortexHere is an image of the cortical homunculus, a physical representation of the human body, located within the brain. 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!
