Health Tips

Red Lights…

You probably own a car. You are required by law to ensure
that it is running with basic safety features by having an annual MOT. If you
are wise, you also look after it by having it regularly serviced. If you didn’t,
and it broke down, you surely wouldn’t be that surprised, as you hadn’t taken
care of it and taken preventative measures for it not to get worn out. So why
do the majority of people take far better care of their vehicles than they do
of themselves?! Isn’t it strange? We spend all that (necessary) money on our
cars, but how much do we invest – not just in monetary terms, but in time as
well – on our health and wellbeing?

Cars have warning lights that go off, often hopefully before
the problem gets too severe that the vehicle completely breaks down. Again, a
sensible person does not ignore these. But how many people ignore their own red
warning lights? Any ache or pain is a red light. Any feeling of imbalance
within the body is a red light. Disease is often the amalgamation of red lights
which have gone ignored. The time has gone to break the habit and listen to
your body! Instead of masking the symptoms with medication, get to the root of
what is actually out of balance and causing the original problem. Kinesiologists can help – we are the body’s ‘mechanics’! Your muscle responses give us the clues
we need to help restore the balance.

If you were to put diesel in a petrol engine, or vice versa,
you certainly wouldn’t be surprised that it caused major problems and the
vehicle ground to a halt! If any of you believe you are fuelling your body with
a food that is in effect toxic to you, then come and find out for sure with
food sensitivity testing. Everyone has totally different biochemical body composition,
no two people are the same. With the
exception of sugar, there is no food type that is a blanket problem across the
nation. ‘One man’s meat is another man’s poison’ and surely it would benefit
everyone to know what they can and can’t tolerate?



The power of music

Over the Christmas period, we will have heard many festive
songs that immediately cause an emotional reaction. Hopefully it will be one of
nostalgia and joy, but it can sometimes cause sadness, like if it brings back
memories of a loved one we have lost, or a similar time of sadness. Music lifts
the spirit and holds a special place in our hearts and minds – the magically ‘unlocking’
effect of music on someone with dementia, who has otherwise lost all memory and
purposeful interaction – is evidence of this.

Many people however are unaware of the far reaching impact
that the power of music can have on our health, on a cellular level. Masaru
Emoto conducted an experiment on water crystals, which he exposed to different
types of music and photographed the effects on the crystals. The results are
staggering: calming, soothing music produced stunning, symmetrical crystals.
Harsh, ugly, discordant music produced malformed, stunted crystals. Weird, you
might say, but how is this relevant to me? Well, in an earlier blog about our
body’s need for water, I remind you that our body’s scientific constitution is
a staggering 70% water! When a baby is born, it is even higher, at 95%. So what
we listen to – and this reaches far beyond music, to the words we also hear on
a daily basis – is having a significant
impact on our body at a cellular level.

To find out more about this fascinating process, and to see the
images of the differing crystals, go to http://www.creatingconsciously.com/books/emotowaterbook.pdf
The resource is for children, but it’s beautifully simple
and straight to the point.



Coffee

So, most people enjoy a cup of coffee. Most people also
realise that when they ingest the caffeine, they might experience insomnia,
nervousness, restlessness, irritability, stomach upset, fast heartbeat, muscle
tremors and headaches.

As a result, a lot of people decide to drink decaffeinated. The
caffeine is stripped from the coffee bean using chemical methods. Experts tell
us that no chemical residue remains in our decaffeinated tea or coffee, and
many big coffee chains, Starbucks included, make decaf using methylene
chloride, which they believe preserves the full flavour of the coffee. But is
this actually better for your health? There’s no denying that exposure to
methylene chloride in other forms can cause headaches, skin irritation,
dizziness and faintness. Several studies have raised concerns with links to
cancer and rheumatoid arthritis and do you really want to be drinking something
that is treated with the same chemical used in aerosol sprays and paint
strippers?

The good news is that there is a process which does not use
chemicals and does leave your coffee caffeine free, known as The Swiss Water
Process
. In this process, the coffee beans are soaked in caffeine free
green coffee extract so that the caffeine is extracted from the bean and into
the water yet the flavour components remain.
The now caffeine saturated green coffee extract is then processed
through activated charcoal to remove the caffeine and thus becoming caffeine
free again ready to extract caffeine from a new batch of coffee. The coffee
beans are then dried to their originating moisture level and re-bagged. The
Swiss Water Process results in coffee that is 99.9% caffeine free. Find out more
