The Art of Healing
Today information on curatives and healthy foods are constantly suppressed, and substances are even prohibited, like cannabis (which remains turmeric’s fiercest competition for its balancing and curative effects).
In fact, the systematic suppression of information concerning the curative effects of food and herbs like cannabis, turmeric, garlic, ginger and habanero (for a few simple but powerful examples), as well as systems of herbalism, traditional medicine, and anything natural and not pharmacological, has been so successful during the rise of allopathy and Big Pharma that rejecting natural remedies as “alternative” has become an automatic response among most in our society — so much so that to suggest their powerful medicinal potential in public is to be labeled as crazy, a fringe-dweller, or some such parallel.
Chaga and other medicinal mushrooms are supremely powerful modes for increasing vitality and achieving healthy and balanced states. Chaga extract is one of the most powerful sources of antioxidants on the planet, and notably, has demonstrated anti-cancer properties. Chaga causes cell death of malformed cells without hurting the body, preventing the growth of cancer cells. It has also been shown to protect cellular DNA and stimulate the immune system.
In countries where the allopathic oligarchy has less of a stranglehold on the bounds of medicine and medical research, chaga is both well researched and medically prescribed, as is the reishi mushroom.
In Russia in particular, chaga is widely utilised for its medicinal value, and is also being integrated with extracts of birch — the only tree chaga will grow on in nature — to potentially enhance the health effects of the chaga extract.
Personally, I very much enjoy consuming chaga with ginseng. If your needs are medicinal, I encourage you to do your own research to see if chaga, medicinal mushrooms, and/or ginseng might be appropriate for you too.
Note: This is one of those times when tradition remains frustratingly ahead of science. The healing potential of mycotherapy (mushroom medicine) is vast, and while it is only just beginning to be understood by science, the scientific evidence is already inarguable, and yet psychoactive mushrooms remain widely prohibited by law regardless of their medicinal value. Even though chaga itself is not deemed illegal, the sense of ‘taboo’ surrounding mushroom medicine in our society has greatly diminished its therapeutic use.
2. Almonds and Apricots (in Combination)
I was in a Turkish Café in San Francisco, sometime after first learning about and experiencing the internal alchemy of the almond and the apricot. They had a little apricot and almond pastry and I ordered one with my coffee. I said, “Oh, the almond and apricot, that’s the magic, I’ll have one of those.”
They looked at me like I just told them a secret in their native language. On picking up their jaws, they inquired how I knew about the magic of the almond and apricot.
The almond and apricot combination included in my pastry is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The simple combination has long been considered a cancer cure. It is associated with longevity, since one of the most well-aged peoples in the world, hun tzu in, eat almonds and apricots frequently. According to what I have experienced, it is also a powerful bowel cleanser! (Be advised, the combination does not cause diarrhoea per se, but does increase elimination.)
Western scientists have also utilised extracts to prove the effectiveness of the apricot and almond, however the curative properties could not be replicated by using only extracted compounds in isolation. Traditional Chinese Medicine noted that the alchemy of the digestion process potentiated their medicinal value, and extracts would thus not work.
Literally meaning “mountain tar”, Shilajit is a thick, sticky substance that seeps out of the rocks in the high mountains of Asia. Containing at least 85 minerals in their ionic form, it has been revered in Ayurveda for millennia as the best carrier of energy and nutrition into the human body.
A Vedic expression in regards to shilajit goes something like, “There is no disease which shilajit cannot defeat if consumed soon enough.” And from my own personal experience, I have started to think that shilajit is the actual philosopher’s stone for internal alchemy.
This stuff is straight-up illegal in Canada. Apparently there are a lot of poorly produced shilajit extracts on the global market, some containing lead. From what I understand it largely depends on how this extract is handled as to whether it contains toxins or not.
With an ancient history, legends of shilajit abound, and modern science still has many questions about shilajit — such as whether it is derived from a mineral or vegetable source, and how it behaves as an oil but is water soluble. What is undeniable is that shilajit is packed with minerals like no other substance on the planet, and generally has the effect of enhancing whatever herbal medicinal or food one consumes with it.
There are only a very few disorders I have come across which are not helped but hindered by the gentle inclusion of shilajit in one’s diet. However again, I encourage you to do your own research about shilajit (also known as mumeo in Russia) and whether it is right for you.
4. Nothing But The Elements
The most powerful thing we can do for ourselves, often enough, is nothing! Being quiet in the four elements without trying to do anything is essentially one of the most powerful healing and strengthening practices you can undertake. Spend some time doing nothing and consuming nothing but the four elements in their purest form.
Go out and play in the Sun! Sunlight triggers healing potential in our bodies in hundreds of different ways. If you are sensitive to sunlight minimalize exposure and wear a hat. There is always the potential of using too much of any medicine, including heliotherapy.
Drink pure water. Fast for a time and consume water only. Numerous immunological functions begin when we go without food for certain time periods; 16 hour, 1 day and 2 day water fasts can all be extremely beneficial.
Breathe and play in the fresh air. Do nothing but breathe in nature — be it the mountaintop, beachhead, public park, or wherever is accommodating.
Take off your shoes and connect with the Earth. The healing feel-good energy of the planet is as easy to connect with as removing your shoes! We are chemical electrical beings. Walking barefoot, or at least with shoes that do not disconnect us from literally being grounded into the electromagnetism of the earth, creates measurable chemical and electrical benefits. (Personally I recommend cotton soled tai chi/kung fu shoes for gentle walking.)

We are hearing about weight loss that doesn't happen, or that happens and the weight comes right back. People who used to be in control of their weight are frustrated that what was, is no longer.
Some attribute it to aging, some assess their lives and determine that there is too much stress in their lives to lose weight. Some blame themselves or their bodies for failing them in goals.
Health and fitness clubs get most of their business in January, as multitudes pledge to lose weight. But after you reach 30, exercise contributes about 10% to weight loss! After reaching 40 years, strenuous workouts can leave a person storing more fat than ever. At this point, detoxing the body is 65% of weight loss. Detoxing should involve using various methods for varying periods of time. Juicing fresh vegetables and fruits are easy ways to detox. Enemas and colonics help reduce intestinal plaque, and are needed periodically. There are many detox solutions waiting for you here at our affiliate, Global Healing Centers. Global Healing Center procures pure, non-gmo, ingrediants and has vegan options as well. Click the button to see the detox options. We recommend intestinal detoxing and then liver detox, then the kidney detox. Or go for the full body detox. You will be feeling a positive difference that others around you may notice as well!

Neurofeedback addresses problems of brain dysregulation. These happen to be numerous. They include the anxiety-depression spectrum, attention deficits, behavior disorders, various sleep disorders, headaches and migraines, PMS and emotional disturbances. It is also useful for organic brain conditions such as seizures, the autism spectrum, and cerebral palsy.
Neurofeedback is not only for ADD/ADHD, Anxiety or PTSD; among other things -
Concentration, focus and emotional control are key to achieving optimal performance in all fields. Athletes and business executives are taking advantage of Neurofeedback technologies to learn how to utilize the full potential of their minds to reach their peak.
I have been a Neurofeedback practitioner for over 19 years and keep up to date with the latest technologies and advances. Call us for a consultation to see if Neurofeedback would be right for you or a family member. We are here for your success in the enjoyment of life, that is - life to the fullest, life at it's best.
Go back in time for just a moment. It is 1870, about 150 years ago. Food was not GMO, was more organic, and there were no artificial frequencies, no electronic waves in the environment. Zoom to today, where we have all these things, pollution and more that have come into our existence within the past 100 years. These things are having an apparent effect on bees, in some areas bees are going extinct because they cannot navigate as they used to. The effects on human bodies have been detrimental, wrecking havoc on our body systems.
Our current medicines have not yet caught up with today's barrage of offenses against our bodies. Medicine attempts to treat modern ills with traditional therapies. Antibiotics to reduce the amount of "Germs" in our bodies - but - wait! The antibiotics are killing off the beneficial bacteria in our systems! Add this to the list above, it's only been about 80 years that antibiotics have been in use.
Add to this "vaccinosis", a term well known in the veterinarian community, because pet's lives are shorter than ours. "Overvaccination" causes other problems. Here is what happens. The first vaccinated pet gives birth, then that litter gives birth (after rounds of vaccinations), then those babies get vaccinated and give birth to more that get vaccinated. . . and so - - - you get the picture. Since they have had many more generations of over-vaccination, many more generations than humans, these pets are having issues. Research this on your own, and you will find out for yourself! This is what humans are up against in a very short time (now?) unless protocols for vaccinations change.
Our health is our most important asset in our lives. Your microbiome is the largest health determination factor. If you have poor intestinal health from SIBBO (Small Intestinal Bad Bacterial Overgrowth), then no matter how HEALTHY you are eating, you won't benefit from that nutrition.
We are complex machinery, the finest! We run on light, oxygen, food nutrition, hormones, neurotransmitters, electrical currents and more. SIBBO affects all of these things, comparitively to a car it is like running your car on motor-oil rather than gasoline. It would not run on motor oil, it would sputter and stop running. Our electronic systems in our bodies are affected by the modern electornics in the air and more.
We can help you correct your intestinal health and help restore your energy so you will feel new, rejuvenated, and full of life-energy!
Would you like to go even deeper? Try incorporating greater appreciation into your life in the following simple ways with suggestions from Heartmath.
Take two or three appreciation breaks each day, ideally in early morning, at work or school, while returning home or before bed. Simply follow the steps above. It takes as little as two minutes to achieve mental, emotional and physical balance.
Make a list of things you appreciate such as people, places, activities and pets and choose one or two each morning to hold in your heart during the day. Choose one to hold in your heart throughout the night while you rest.
Keep your Appreciation List close by all day, perhaps in a pocket or purse, at your desk or computer. In stressful moments, choose something from your list that can quickly evoke a feeling of appreciation: It can transform a long and stressful day into one that flows — amazingly in 30 seconds or less.

Read your Appreciation List whenever you are able to!

From Dr. Mercola: A number of recent investigations have revealed a significant truth: The sugar industry has long known that sugar consumption triggers poor health, but hid the incriminating data, much like the tobacco industry hid the evidence linking smoking to lung cancer. The most recent of these investigations, based on unearthed historical documents, found the sugar industry buried evidence from the 1960s that linked sugar consumption to heart disease and cancer.
The research didn’t see the light of day again until Cristin E. Kearns, assistant professor at UCSF School of Dentistry, discovered caches of internal industry documents stashed in the archives at several universities. The unearthing of these documents has resulted in three separate papers showing how the industry has systematically misled the public and public health officials about the dangers of sugar.
<3 My hope is that my family & friends here will take note, research it (see YouTube's "Learn the facts about sugar" https://youtu.be/XM0vyUUvO9E ) and then take steps to reduce your sugar intake. It could be the difference between an enjoyable life or a life spent in misery.
Your health is valuable. Even though you feel fine today, if you have a high sugar intake, then at some point it will catch up to you. My prayer and hope is that my family and friends will not face debilitating health from this insidious toxin!

"How are you doing?" (No, Really, how are you?) How many times do you answer this question in a positive manner when you know inside there is something not right. We answer with a short, positive, quick answer "Fine!" "OK!" "Great!" knowing that the "asker" did not intend to be a therapist! (Or the asker is not asking you to "vent", and you know this.)
Emotions in our society is downplayed, as something we are in control of, or - we should be. And if we do have an issue, we feel others think that it is somehow our fault! Emotions can be a source of illness or illnesses. We deal with emotional health at Trinity Holistic Wellness. Without good emotional health, it is difficult to truly enjoy healthy living. We have several ways in which we can help with emotional healing and restoration.
Neurofeedback is one way we can help by re-training the brain. It is an excellent method to resolve Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. And trust me - - everyone has some form(s) of PTSD, ranging from mild to extreme.
Another method we can use is through Bioenergetics. Our state-of-the-art NES Health is a Quantum Bioenergetics System. It scans 145 different body-fields to map out blockages caused by emotions. These blockages are then energetically treated and cleared, and thus healing begins to take place. We have had tremendous success with NES.
A more traditional method is Hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is an extremely effective way to help healing as it deals directly with your subconscious. Weight gain and smoking are two issues that result from emotional stressors. Hypnotherapy deals with the emotional issue that is causing the anxiety and stress. Once this is released, then weight gain and smoking (nail biting and other issues) stops. We can then help with weight loss and non-invasive fat loss through FDN and/or the Contour Light System.
Being an optimal weight is necessary for health, well-being and longevity. It is part of the total picture of health and emotional wellness. It is about feeling your best!
Metabolic Chaos is another major issue that is rampant in our society today, which can feed emotional imbalances. Metabolic Chaos causes things such as insomnia, foggy brain, lethargy, fatigue, pain, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, and more. Our patients report they have much more energy as the Metabolic Chaos begins to resolve!
We help the total person. Call today for your consultation to begin a healthier lifestyle, and begin to feel more energy, more life! 281-367-9292.
