Have you been injured, either recently or long ago? There is a simple technique from Applied Kinesiology to release captured emotions or residue stuck in a muscle or organ from an injury. Muscles often retain the memory of an old injury and may cause even additional fatigue. Any injury can cause decreased flexibility, stiff muscles, and susceptibility to future injuries. A simple test can show if this technique is needed. This technique is often called for when muscles just will not stay strengthened. Injury Recall can restore an...read more
Good Health- What Does it Really Mean?
When we are sick or injured we know exactly what we want. We want to feel good again, to not be sick; we want to get better, to be healthy. But what does that mean to be healthy? Good health is a result of what we eat, what we think, how we express emotions, what we feel, what we do and how we live. Our thoughts, actions, and choices make incremental changes in our way of life, dictating our current outlook and health. Making healthy choices is an ongoing process that leads to good health or poor health. We can start off with big...read more
Just What Is Good Health?
In order to survive, each and every cell needs voltage. Cells need voltage to maintain themselves, to gather new raw materials for making new cells, to repair any damage from injuries, and to remove toxins from the body. If voltage is too low, cells do not have enough energy to run all their processes. When there isn’t enough voltage, toxins build up, causing fatigue and pain. Therefore, having enough voltage is a basic component of good health. Where do cells get voltage? The ultimate energy comes from the sun, which we need too. Cells get...read more
Germ Theory vs Terrain Theor
As a biologist, I was taught and taught for many years about the Germ theory. Louis Pasteur published a paper in 1861 stating that germs are the cause of disease. Western medicine picked up on Pasteur’s Germ theory and today it is a basis of Western medicine. It is generally accepted that one gets disease from microbiota, or germs from fungi, bacteria or other pathogens, parasites and viruses (although viruses were not included in Pasteur’s original theory). Modern medicine isolates each microbe to identify it, to see how it grows, and...read more

While we are in the midst of social distancing and self quarantining, one of the few ways to get out is to walk. You can still be out in nature and generally be away from people.

Then in the morning you wake up and you can hardly put any weight on your foot. You hobble to the bathroom, and after a little while, with a little bit of stretching it feels better. It settles down and you soon forget it happened. The...read more

First you want to come up with an affirmation of what you would like to experience. This can be something like…”I am...read more
