Once you’ve figured out you have Lyme Disease, the task to heal it is a rough ride. Whether you’ve had it for a few months, years, or decades, its an intense battle to finally get it completely out of your body. Choosing to either go the Western Medical Doctor route, or the natural medicine route is a big decision.

Choosing the Western Medicine route is a shorter path of healing it, about 6 months (for chronic lyme and a few weeks if detected right away), however, often other complications arise because of it. The medication forces ones body to heal quickly, and remove the toxins at a faster rate. Because of this, it often causes other organs, and parts of the body to have a challenge in the quick changes and they often need more support, and it can cause more problems as a result. Some people choose this route however, and trust the process. I have chosen a different alternative.

Once I found out, and was confirmed of my knowing for many many years, I began an alternative path immediately. I started with homeopathic right away, which I took some videos that are on youtube regarding the detox process just with this treatment.  http://youtube.com/user/AsttarteDeva/videos.  I felt the homeopathics were not enough, and I added a couple products. I had tried mushroom spores, however, they did not agree with my system at first. I tried them again later, but discovered that having a mold and dust allergy actually made them not really be effective.

I added MMS, and got to 15/16 drops. I had to stop once my body started purging it right after taking it.

I added Concentrace (liquid trace minerals traceminerals.com, has electrolytes, and probiotics in it among many other good things),

I took 1 drop of iodine daily in water

I resumed Oil Pulling, with Safflower, Sunflower, Sesame or Coconut oil (great for teeth too).

I resumed the ayurvedic foot massage detox,

I had started Biofeedback treatments (last fall 2015) (very intense), however, the woman I was seeing was hardly available. So, I tried a Zapper (not so successful) and Rife Machine to get for the home (expensive). It’s not as powerful as Biofeedback. They can be found at amazon or eBay.

I started a morning meditation and listening to high frequency sound waves. https://youtu.be/r4qM2ZkwrJA.

I started getting ionic foot detox baths. It pulls all the toxins out of the body. The color of the water determines what organs you are detoxing from.

I’m also planning to get: infrared sauna treatments, and possibly colonics.

I had started zeolites, (a Vit D spray, and Asea), and found after many months it wasn’t doing all that much.

http://cellconnection.teamasea.com/ for raising cell frequency.

Colloidal Silver is also a great thing to take on a daily basis, any kind of immune support and multi vitamin.

Yummy healthy smoothies are an excellent idea, and a healthy diet.

Also adding liquid chlorophyll and wheat grass is great for the immune system.

It is also highly recommended to omit all sugar, vinegar, corn, and all gluten and wheat products. Stopping sugar helps the body to stop building additional candida/yeast and parasites. However, a candida and parasite cleanse is super crucial I have recently discovered, and even more so to kill the source, the eggs that hatch, even after cleaning out the gut, bc they will keep regrowing and you’ll have to start the whole process over again and again.

There are also professional Lyme Specialists, as well as Chinese Herbalists who do acupuncture and treat the Lyme and their co-infections with herbs as an alternative. And, there are other paths as well. There are many paths for healing separate from getting antibiotics. Just make sure you do your detox at a pace you can handle, and afford. If anything seems to be too intense, back off, and let your body settle down first before increasing your dosage again.

And, if you choose the antibiotics route, please do your research first! Currently, there is no vaccination for this, but believe it or not, this disease is now known to be in 1 out of every 5 people. The percentage is high, and its not going anywhere. The only alternative is to get it out of the body, with persistence, commitment, an inner strength and a little knowledge to support you!

Overeaters, Weight Loss and Yoga

Health Coaching for those who wish to lose weight!

As soon as you notice you are bloated, gassy, and you ate something that made your stomach feel heavy, weighs you down, and made your stomach stick out more than your normal diet of healthy foods, pay attention to that!!!!! Notice…..write that food down!!!! And don’t eat it again (for a LONG time), and perhaps, maybe, eat a grapefruit the next time you have the craving, drink some water, or just meditate and focus on the feeling in your body!!! What you could do, now this is just what I do, you have free will, but you could go into yoga poses that enhance the release of the gas!!! Literally, make yourself fart!!!! There are a bunch of yoga poses that help do that!!! And do them! And, even rest. Sometimes when we eat foods that make us feel gross inside, it affects everything else too, and we just need to relax, lay down, or sit. That could be a great time to meditate. Do your journaling of your food diet, or whatever else you want to journal about, read, etc. Don’t let other people push you around. Just do what’s going to heal you, and make YOU feel good!

 

Excellent alternative for those who can't go deep into the stretch right away. Props are used to support the body to rest fully. One can also use a prop under the buttocks if yours knees bend but can't get the buttocks down to your ankles.

Note: Any yoga poses that put pressure on the stomach, actually are the poses that help release that feeling in the belly, the gas, etc. Ie. child pose, knees to chest when laying on the back, etc. And there are alternatives to poses that make poses much easier than what you see in books, on tv, etc and they can support you to do the poses when you think you can’t.

Yoga is a very powerful form of weight loss! Not only will it help strengthen and stretch the body, it will also aid in detoxing and releasing toxins, energy and weight that has been stuck in the body for some time. The longer the weight has been held up in the body, most likely, the longer it will take to let it go. However, don’t give up on yourself. Give yourself the time, and pleasure of yoga, self awareness and healing to lose your weight and get the body back that you love!

Excellent for releasing gas! Again, make adjustments as needed for your comfort. You want to try to hold the pose for at least 5 to 10 minutes for maximum benefit!

Energy Manipulation and Control

Energy Manipulation and Control

 

energy manipulation and controlEnergy Manipulation and Control

Have you every had the experience where you went somewhere to do a kind deed, and then someone went from being helpful and giving to rude and controlling without a moment’s notice?

Today I had a strange experience, at a Hallmark, where I went to buy my mom a gift, and the woman at the register ended up calling the cops. I was a bit dumb-shocked to say the least. We were having a great conversation, about reiki, energy healing, yoga and the healing arts, and as we were making the transaction at the register, she told me the total amount for the starfish earrings I was getting was $9.49, and I handed her a twenty dollar bill, 4 ones and 49 cents. I said, “can you hand me back $15, a ten and a five?” She wasn’t paying attention at this point, and had given me 2 fives. She didn’t see that there was four ones and 49 cents on her counter. She said, “I already gave you two fives.” I looked at them at the counter, and said, “you just owe me another five.” Apparently, she had never taken the ones and change.

She looked at me and said, “I’m going to have to recount my money.” I said, “all you have to give me is a 5 and we’re good.” She still apparently was oblivious that the money on the counter was for her. Five minutes had gone by, and I’m still waiting. I had no idea she wanted to have me wait to count her entire til and have me standing there for over 10 or fifteen minutes. At this point, I was frustrated. I said, “mam, this doesn’t have to be complicated.”

She said, “If you interrupt me again, I’m calling the police.” I just looked at the counter, looked at her drawer, and looked at her. Obviously she was extremely angry, about something I didn’t know what. And, she wanted me to take some punishment of some kind of her lack of awareness of what I handed her, and the amount that was the difference. Saying, “it’s simple math” didn’t make her very happy. At some point I felt her control. I felt her anger, and she was adamant on doing it her way, and making me wrong for having a thought about it, and wanted to start over her counting process 2 or 3 or more times.

Perhaps if she said, “I didn’t count the additional change you gave me. The balance is worked out” it would have been fine. I would have gotten it, but she wanted to make a small situation into a really big one, and hold me there until she resolved her counting process several times. So ultimately the cop showed up. He was a super sweet, patient and nice man. He stood there watching me watch her. She had us both wait until she was done counting. By the time she was done, she said, “You owe me a dollar. My til is short one dollar.” By this time I wanted to be done, and said, “I’ll pay your dollar that you’re short, but I don’t owe you a dollar.” The officer handed her a dollar of his own, and said, “This is ridiculous. This shouldn’t be a big deal.” She felt satisfied, and while standing there I apologized for interrupting her while she was trying to count. She said sternly, “I accept your apology.”

I said, “Are we done?” She said “yes.” I went to leave and the officer followed me outside, and said, “Come talk to me.”

We went outside and walked to the side. He said, “Are you satisfied with how it ended?” And, I said, “I think she just got really confused, and she was really upset.” He said, “Yes, she turned something tiny into something huge. I hope you feel you were treated fair and you got complete.” I said “thank you, she was just super upset.”

She certainly gave me anxiety by using this manipulation tactic and projecting her anger outwards.

Not only was she upset. She was controlling and seriously angry. She had commented that because I’m a Life Coach, teach meditation, yoga and healing that I shouldn’t “act this way”. I think more she meant, “You shouldn’t make me upset when you are a Life Coach, Healer, Yoga Teacher, etc”. However, no one can control another person’s upset. If someone becomes controlling, demanding and angry, its on them. It came from within them. Energy transference from someone dominating you to make you scared, or manipulate to keep you in fear, or hold their “fangs on you”, is not the way to sort something out. She was not responsible on how she forgot what I handed her, and if she did remember, she was using control for another reason. It wasn’t nice. All she had to do was acknowledge the action, and acknowledge the error, but not everyone is willing to admit their mistakes. And they choose to put their mistakes on others. It’s sad to be at the receiving end of this, but I’m grateful the cop got it, and was apologetic and kind to me in the end!

Perhaps she was confused. Perhaps she was jealous. Perhaps she wanted to see if she could make me upset. And, perhaps she went from being open in one moment, to getting triggered, and has some hidden agenda to make people wait for her as her way of controlling them. And, if she doesn’t get what she wants in doing this, she feels out of control, and hence, needed to call the cops. I feel bad for her, but it doesn’t seem she is in the right profession and I feel privy to filing a complaint on her. Or, I too, can let it go. But I do hope she doesn’t treat other customers in the same way. No one deserves that!

Perhaps, too, she just needs some love, and some real healing herself!

A Life That REALLY Matters!

A Life That REALLY Matters!

A Life That Really Matters

Spending a lifetime in taking care of others, being utterly kind, giving and making sure everyone else is taken care of before you are is exhausting, disempowering and often when we can forget who we truly are. In the old days, it was common for women to be tortured and abused if they did not follow the rules and do as they were told. It was very common for children to be beaten, whipped, confined and tortured. There were far more slaves living amongst our world, and far more authorities used their power to take advantage of the weak. Most were given the title of “witch” if they had their own mind and thought for themselves, and then killed for using their intuitive minds or creative thinking.

Today, there is more freedom, however, centuries of power and control does not get destroyed so easily. We grow up still being afraid to speak our truth, we hide our feelings, we do as others say and we often adhere to what society expects of us without choosing a new path; one of freedom, truth and self expression.

When we spend so much time at the mercy of others, we truly “forget” the importance of who we are as human beings. We often enter into relationships with others to re-live the same pattern, the illusion that we must give of ourselves and make others happy, for our own happiness. We choose to suffer in silence and instead of hurting anyone else, we hurt ourselves. We do it willingly though. We think it is of the norm. It is “no big deal”. But truly, it really IS a big deal! It is our lives we are talking about. It is our sanity, our vitality, our energy, our breath, our health, our personal lives, our creativity, our passion and our fun we are messing with when we give up our power to another just to be sure “they” are happy over there!

What is SO great about making everyone else happy anyway? What do you gain from giving all your kindness, your innocence, your strength, your vulnerability, your power and your hope to another human being? What is then left for you? Anything? When we do these things there is nothing left to give to the other people in our lives. They lose interest in us. They forget who we really are because we’re so busy making sure our Beloved, or our child, or our parent, is happy.

What is a life that really matters to YOU? Is it living out your dreams? Is it moving somewhere you never thought you could? Is it building something you always imagined, but never took the first steps? Is it starting a health and fitness program? Is it having a child your partner said you couldn’t? Is it calling your brother or sister when your partner doesn’t like them? Is it giving or contributing to society in a big way that will matter for everyone in your community? Is it finding the man or woman of your dreams? Is it finding your old best friend?

The simplest things, can be the biggest things, because they are important to YOU, and no one else. And that alone is why it MATTERS! And always will!
