How to Avoid the Negative Effects of Ley Lines

If you suffer from unexplainable recurring health problems such as headaches, irritability, depression or any other persistent ailment, you may be working or sleeping on or above a ley line. Such lines are a source of potentially harmful ‘slow’ frequency energy.

Slow frequency energies can easily infiltrate and distort the body’s electromagnetic field. Some of these energies are generated outside our home and others originate from within our home or work environment. These include geographic stress points, ley lines and distorted ground energies.

Sleeping on a ley line can be particularly harmful since such a source of energy can disrupt the body’s biochemical processes and energy systems for as many as 8-10 hours each day. Disharmony in relationships and diseases of body and mind are more likely to occur if you are exposed to such disruptive energies for extended periods of time, such as several years. Genetic weaknesses or latent physical problems can suddenly manifest themselves as migraines, ulcers, varicose veins or cancer. Placing a small mirror that faces the current and direction of a ley line or moving the bed away from such a stress line can lead to sudden recovery. The following are some examples of line problems that were resolved by simply moving the bed:

A 55-year-old widow experienced an unexplainable loss of weight from 154 to 97 pounds within two years. She suffered from severe diarrhea, which became very painful and was accompanied with blood. All medical treatments failed. Her condition became life threatening. A search of ley lines in her house revealed two such lines crossing her bed. The bed was moved by six feet. One week later her intestinal bleeding stopped. After one month all pain ceased and she steadily began to put on weight again.

A young woman had been suffering from severe nightmares and sleeping problems for many years. After moving her bed sideways by 1.5 feet, her nightmares stopped and sleep returned to normal.

A 40-year-old businessman had a chronic heart complaint with heart cramping, panic attacks and circulatory problems. All complaints spontaneously disappeared within two weeks after his bed was moved away from a ley line.
Over the past few years I have visited many homes and offices where these lines have caused physical and psychological problems. In most cases, just placing a small mirror to neutralize the effects of a ley line, or slightly moving the bed or office chair, led to marked improvements of these conditions, and in some cases even to complete recovery.

I consider it important to have one’s home or working place checked for such disturbances as they may not only contribute to ill health but also cause it. There are an increasing number of experts who are able to identify the exact position of such lines, although the method of mirror placement is less known. You may contact your nearest center for alternative therapies; they may be able to put you in touch with a reliable and trustworthy ley line specialist. If in doubt, whether or not a ley line affects your health, you may move your bed and/or desk chair by one to two feet for a few days. If this makes a difference in how you feel, you have given yourself a great gift of health.

Aetna Health Insurance Leaving California – Recommended Replacement Plans

Aetna Health Insurance announced they are leaving the California marketplace for individual and family plans. The end date of all their plans is December 31, 2013. All 49,000 Aetna clients still have six months to figure out what health plan they should move to. In this article we’ll give you a simple mapping that recommends which plans you should move to based upon the Aetna health plan you currently have, a “gotcha” to watch out for, and a couple of silver linings to feel good about.

The simplest way to replace your Aetna Health Insurance is to simply look for an alternative plan with the same (or similar) deductible amount. The recommendations below will make that easy to do. With just a little more effort, you could re-think what you need in yearly medical benefits and pick a plan the is a better fit for your current needs. Either way, you should be able to find a good solution listed below.

Aetna Health Insurance Underwriting Is More Lenient

This will be the gotcha for some people. Aetna has always been more willing to accept people with some health conditions. I know a number of my clients are in Aetna plans because they had specific health conditions that the other carriers either would not accept, or would “rate” much higher than Aetna. So this is something you have to be aware of and be careful about.

If you have existing health conditions, or are “too short” (okay… a little over-weight), or have a rated plan with Aetna, then you should definitely talk to a broker before you apply with another health insurance company. You’ll want to have the broker do Pre-Screen Requests for you to see how the other insurance companies will treat your application.

It’s important to do the pre-screen step first, because if you just pick a health plan, apply for it, and then get declined or rated even higher, it will be very hard to get other insurance companies to consider your application.
Let’s start mapping replacement plans…

Aetna Open Access MC Value Plan Alternatives

The Aetna Open Access Value plans are Aetna’s low-cost option. The Value plans offer a number of different deductibles, $8,000, $5,000, $2,500, and provide 3 office visits for a simple copay, and coverage for Generic prescriptions.

This plan description matches very closely to what is offered in the Anthem Blue Cross SmartSense plans. If you only need two office visits rather than three, then the best choices are the Health Net PPO Advantage plans and the ClearProtection plan from Anthem Blue Cross.

If cost of the plan is one of your major factors, then here is how the alternative plans above should be used.

Health Net PPO Advantage 3500 – offers the best overall value (cost vs benefits)
Health Net PPO Advantage 6500 – is usually the lowest cost option
Anthem Blue Cross ClearProtection 3300 – Anthem’s lowest cost solution
Anthem Blue Cross SmartSense 6000 – closest match to Aetna’s Open Access Value 8000, but lower cost
Anthem Blue Cross SmartSense 3500, 2000, 1000 – if you feel more comfortable with lower deductibles
In the majority of cases, the alternative plans from Anthem and Health Net will be lower cost than the comparable Aetna Value plans. You’ll need to review health insurance quotes to see how the pricing looks for your location in California.

Aetna alternative plans from all major health insurance companies in California. The best plans!

Aetna Open Access MC Plan Alternatives

The Open Access plans are Aetna’s high-end offerings. These plans offered unlimited office visits for just a copay, provided both Generic and Brand name prescription coverage, and offered deductibles of 5,000, 3,500, 2,750, and 1,750.

The best mappings of the Open Access plans are the following:

Cigna Open Access Value plans – Cigna’s entry plans, but very similar to the Aetna plans but without brand name prescription coverage
Anthem Blue Cross Premier plans – these plans are the top of the line from Anthem
Cigna Open Access plans – the high-end Cigna plans
Blue Shield Shield Secure Plus plans – Blue Shield’s top end plans
Health Net does not have any plans that provide unlimited office visits and coverage of brand name prescriptions, so there are no options listed.

Aetna Open Access MC High Deductible Plan (HSA Compatible) Alternatives

These are Aetna’s entry in the Health Savings Account (HSA) compatible market. Like all HSA plans, they provide no benefits except zero-cost preventive care until after you reach the deductible. The plans come with two deductibles, either 5,500 or $3,500.

The mappings for these HSA plans is the following:

Health Net CFB HSA 4500 plan – this is the best value HSA plan in the market
Health Net CFB HSA 6000 plan – this is the overall lowest cost HSA plan
Blue Shield Saver HSA plans – these are lower cost than the other non-Health Net HSA plans
Cigna Health Savings 4900 plan – good general purpose plan
Anthem Blue Cross Lumenos 5950 plan – Anthem’s last remaining HSA plan
Are You Looking For Lower Out Of Pocket Risk?

Some shoppers may be looking to lower premiums AND lower the OOPM’s they have had in the past. If this is your wish, then here are a couple of options you should explore:

Health Net CFB PPO Standard plans – the OOPM in these plans is equal to the deductible, and 2 office visits for a copay
Cigna Open Access Value 5000/100% – the OOPM is the same as the deductible, and the plan offers unlimited office visits
These alternative plans will cost a little more than the direct replacement options listed in the sections above. However, the attractiveness of having lower risk if an accident or a medical condition starts is very compelling.

Silver Linings In The California Aetna Health Insurance Decision

I believe that Aetna is just the first in a line of large and small health insurance companies that will leave the California individual and family health insurance marketplace over the next 3-5 years. Aetna had a very small market share, and would have a hard time competing with the insurance companies that dominate the California market. So having Aetna leave now will reduce the turbulence we see during the Health Care Reform roll-out later this fall.

The first silver lining in all of this is that Aetna plans tend to have very high Out-Of-Pocket Maximums (OOPM). As an example, for a family, the Open Access Value 8000 plan has an OOPM of $25,000, while the Anthem Blue Cross SmartSense 6000 plan and the ealth Net PPO Advantage 6500 have a $19,000 OOPM.

This is one of the reasons people have stayed away from new Aetna plans unless no other health insurance company would accept them. There are plenty of plans from Health Net, Anthem Blue Cross, Cigna, and Blue Shield that will have lower OOPM’s than the Aetna plans.

The last silver lining of this change at Aetna, is that Aetna plans have not been very competitive the last couple of years. So changing to comparable plans will give you a reduction in premiums. With the information we’ve given you above, you should be able to find a good Aetna replacement plan, now go forth and prosper.

The Cornerstone Of Your Health

Most of us (including most doctors) do not recognize or know that digestive problems wreak havoc over your entire body, leading to acne, allergies, arthritis, autism, autoimmune diseases, cancer, chronic fatigue, dementia, mood disorders, rashes, and many more. Sadly, conventional medicine views the body in distinct systems and symptoms are treated independently from the rest of the body. We seldom ask: what is the root cause of our health issues?

When you have a skin problem, your dermatologist prescribes some topical treatments, antibiotics or oral contraceptives. When you have arthritis, your rheumatologist gives you non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or painkillers. When you have mood disorders, your psychiatrist suggests antidepressants. Most doctors and specialists are still clueless that many bodily malfunctions can be traced back to your digestive system.

Why Optimal Gut Health Is So Critical

Your gut is the cornerstone of your health. If your gut is healthy, chances are that you are in good health. Your gut determines what nutrients are absorbed and what toxins, allergens, and microbes are kept out. Up to 80% of your immune system lies in the gut. That is why your gut is directly linked to the health of the total organism, you.

First, there are about 3 pounds and 500 species of bacteria in your gut. This so-called gut flora includes both beneficial as well as harmful microbes. It is critical to maintain a healthy balance between the two. The good ones (also known as probiotics), such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium, which are the most common strains, help digest your food, produce vitamins, regulate hormones, excrete toxins, and produce healing compounds that keep your gut healthy.

The bad ones like the parasites, viruses, yeasts, and bad bacteria are opportunistic and they flourish when you have less good bacteria in the gut. Some bad microbes feed off partially digested carbohydrates and produce gas, some break down bile salts (used for digesting fats) before the body has a chance to use them leading to fat malabsorption or diarrhea, and some produce toxins that damage the lining of the gut.

Second, the gut lining or mucosal barrier controls what toxins, allergens, and microbes are to be kept out from the internal environment of your body. The lining is a super thin layer that is only one cell thick. If this barrier is intact and in fine shape, you are likely to have a good, strong immune system. If the barrier is damaged (a condition called intestinal permeability or leaky gut), your defense mechanism is compromised and your internal environment will be exposed to all sorts of harmful substances.

Third, your gut lining is also full of finger-like projections called villi which dramatically increases the surface area of the lining to something like the size of a tennis court. If these villi are damaged or flattened, nutrient absorption becomes compromised. Case in point, osteoporosis is often a problem of calcium malabsorption.

Finally, your gut manufactures more neurotransmitters than your brain. 90-95 percent of your serotonin, the key neurotransmitter responsible for regulating mood, is made in the gut. A deficiency in serotonin causes depression, anxiety, carbohydrate cravings, PMS, and sleep cycle disturbances. Serotonin and other vital neurotransmitters travel from the gut to the brain via the vagus nerve, the longest nerve that emerges directly from the brain. Hence, those with gut problems are at a much higher risk of neurotransmitter imbalances, mood issues, anxiety, and depression.

What Causes Gut Trouble

A diet that is low in fiber, high in sugar, refined carbohydrates, and processed foods, and excessive alcohol consumption tends to decimate the colonies of friendly bacteria in your gut, leading to the abundant growth of the wrong types of bacteria and yeast that upset the balance of your gut flora.
Hidden food sensitivities or intolerances create inflammation and result in gut permeability or leaky gut. The most common culprits are gluten and dairy, followed by eggs, soy, and corn.
Chronic low-grade gut infections promote leaky gut. The most common infectious causes are small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), yeast or candida overgrowth, intestinal parasites, and bacteria.
Overuse of medications that damage the gut lining, interfere with the gut flora, and block normal digestive function. These include anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs like Motrin and Advil), antibiotics, acid-blocking drugs (like Zantac and Nexium), and steroids.
Environmental toxins like mercury, pesticides, herbicides (such as Roundup), BPA from plastics, and mold toxins damage the gut lining.
Genetically engineered foods have been implicated in the destruction of gut flora.
Stress can also alter the gut environment causing leaky gut and upsetting the bacterial balance in the gut.
Signs Indicating You Have Gut Issues

It is so important to understand that many diseases that seem totally unrelated to the gut actually stem from the gut. If you have any of these problems, your gut health has already been compromised.

Digestive symptoms such as gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Diagnosis of an autoimmune disease such as Celiac disease, Grave’s disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Mood disorders such as ADD/ADHD, anxiety, autism, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and schizophrenia.
Skin problems such as acne, eczema, or rosacea.
Hormonal imbalances such as PMS or polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
Seasonal allergies or asthma.
Food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances.
Diagnosis of chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia.
Candida or yeast overgrowth.
How To Heal Your Gut?

First and foremost, stop throwing gasoline on the fire. If you have done a food sensitivity test, be sure to eliminate all your known sensitive foods. Otherwise, cut out gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, and corn for at least three months and see how your gut feels and what happens to your other symptoms. For many people who are sensitive to gluten and dairy, they probably have to avoid these foods for life. For those who have an autoimmune disease, they need to stay off gluten indefinitely.
Treat any infections or overgrowth of bugs like parasites, small bowel bacteria, or yeasts. Most doctors use drugs or antibiotics but herbal antibiotics are just as effective even though the protocol takes longer.
Eat real foods that are full of nutrients, not processed foods.
Take digestive enzymes and Betaine hydrochloric acid (HCL) with food.
Eat traditionally made, unpasteurized versions of fermented foods regularly. These include pickled fermentations of cabbage, turnips, eggplant, cucumbers, onions, squash, and carrots, natto (fermented soy), kefir, lassi (an Indian yogurt drink), yogurt, cheese such as Brie and Gouda, and olives from the self-serve olive bars in grocery markets (no high heat treatment). Alternatively, you can take a probiotic supplement, which helps to reestablish a healthy gut flora.
Take extra omega-3 fatty acids and curcumin (turmeric) to help reduce inflammation in the gut.
Take gut-healing nutrients such as L-glutamine, DGL (deglycyrrhized licorice), slippery elm, and aloe vera to help rejuvenate the lining of the gut.
What To Avoid?

Antibiotics, unless it is absolutely necessary. When you do, make sure to reseed your gut afterwards with plenty of fermented foods and/or probiotic supplements.
Conventionally-raised meats come from animals that are routinely fed low-dose antibiotics.
Processed foods, along with sugar and alcohol.
Genetically engineered (GE) foods. Most processed foods typically contain one or more ingredients derived from GE crops. In the US, almost all corn, cotton, and soybeans are GE. Some zucchini, yellow squash, and sweet corn are GE. Most Hawaiian papaya is GE.
Fruits and vegetables that have been sprayed with agricultural chemicals, in particular, glyphosate (Roundup). When it comes to the “dirty dozen”, always buy organic. The dirtiest 12 are apples, strawberries, grapes, celery, peaches, spinach, sweet bell peppers, imported nectarines, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, imported snap peas, and potatoes.
Antibacterial soap.
Chlorinated and/or fluoridated drinking water. Instead, choose clean spring water or appropriately filtered water.
How Long Does It Take To Heal The Gut?

It all depends on how severe the damage is. Some people notice an improvement in 3 months with all the symptoms disappearing in 6 months. Some take longer, up to 1 1/2 to 2 years.

Credit Lines for Health Care Needs

As we wait for the national health care program to come into fruition, that is if with all it’s opposition does come into fruition, we still have medical needs to attend to. If you are without insurance or your insurance doesn’t cover your needed health care expense and money is an issue, perhaps there is another way for you to have your health care needs met by using a health care credit line.

Last year I attended a Chiropractor’s promotional dinner to introduce his rehabilitation program. I went to my free evaluation appointment and when presented with the cost of the program, which he wanted to be paid for in advance, he offered me the opportunity to apply for a Chase Health Advance credit line. This credit line has allowed me to make monthly payments without interest and has worked quite well for me. Of course there is the ever present gloomy prospect that if I should be late on a payment, huge interest and penalties will hit me like a sledge hammer, this is why I pay this one bill on line.

A few months ago my new dentist informed me that I needed a lot of work done and I had to come up with $1,400.00, the amount my insurance wouldn’t cover. Not having the cash nor wanting to put it on my regular credit cards and have to pay it off with interest, I inquired if they had a health credit line and they did! This one is called Care Credit and it’s owned by G.E. This credit line is also interest free, but has a few conditions you have to pay attention to. Care Credit has different interest free time lengths and it is based on how your charge is processed by the medical office staff. If your amount due is charged in the normal way you will have six months interest free payments before they kick in interest, however, I was told if my charge is over $300.00 I can request a twelve month interest free time period. Again there is the sledge hammer possibility if I should be late or miss a payment.

My goal in this article is to simply inform others of this option, as I had no idea this existed, not to do detailed pros and cons of each company. In my research I did find some very negative opinions regarding these health credit lines. Fox Business web site had an article where the state of New York is calling for an investigation into the practices of these companies, I also came across a site where several people had posted their dissatisfaction, mostly due to their being late or missing payments and having to deal with the sledge hammer effect. Anyone choosing to use one of these health credit lines needs to do so with a complete understanding of the rules. So far, for me, this has been a great option, my teeth are fixed and my posture is much improved!

Your Health Is In Your Hands – Living Emotional, Physical, And Spiritual Freedom

Threats to Health

Whenever your body is forced to defend itself against external threats of physical impurities or discordant influences, such as stress or sensory over-indulgence, it naturally develops the emotions of fear and insecurity. These emotions have the purpose of alerting you to the difficulties your body has in keeping itself vibrant, healthy and efficient.

There are many potential health threats, including a vast number of man-made environmental pollutants. Others are concealed in thousands of different foods and drinks that are factory-made. Adding to the dilemma, most processed and refined foods have lost their natural life force and are of no use other than to provide empty calories and congesting bulk. If there is any naturalness left in these foods, microwave ovens, deep frying and freezing make certain that we receive very little or no life force from the foods we eat.

The immune system is incessantly engaged in trying to defend the body against a number of other noxious things, such as chemical additives, preservatives, flavor enhancers, stabilizers, emulsifiers, nerve toxins (caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol) and the poisons that make medicinal drugs so ‘effective’.

Then there is the highly acidic metabolic waste product carbon dioxide that the body tries to eliminate with every breath. Just as too much of it in the atmosphere may disturb ecological balance, when we ingest carbonated drinks we force this gas right back into the body. This unnatural situation acidifies the blood and undermines the metabolic health of every cell in the body. A sedentary lifestyle only exacerbates this situation.

If you ingest synthetic drugs such as artificial sweeteners (Aspartame, NutraSweet, Saccharin), the body breaks them down into methanol (wood alcohol) and other poisons. These not only disrupt cell health but also blast endocrine balance. As they begin to break through the brain barrier they cause damage to the central nervous system and cause havoc throughout the body. The FDA has recorded more than 94 symptoms of disease caused by Aspartame alone, including death. Remember, artificial sweeteners are added to over 9,000 different foods and drinks, including cereals, diet drinks, sweets, fruit juices, biscuits, cakes, chewing gum and toothpastes.

Disease Is But Self-defense

When the body is no longer able to adequately deal with these or similar health threats, the immune system enters a dramatic and highly reactive phase of alert. This response is in addition to causing emotional distress, such as anxiety or even panic. Conventional medicine calls it ‘disease’; I call it ‘toxicity crisis.’

Disease doesn’t signal that there is something wrong with the body itself. Rather, it shows that the body is trying to defend itself against something that doesn’t belong there. In truth, there are no diseases, only various stages of self-defense. The body utilizes an entire arsenal of highly sophisticated defense weaponry to ward off the adverse effects resulting from such health threats.

The first line of defense consists of tiny, friendly microorganisms and micro-plasmas (invisible to most microscopes) that live on the skin and in our mucous lining. They exist everywhere in nature. These tiny organisms make up the primary force for maintaining homeostasis or balance in the body.

The second line of defense involves the body’s own immune system, which is dealing mainly with cell protection. It is highly concentrated in the mucous lining of the gastrointestinal tract. The stomach’s hydrochloric acid is also used to neutralize harmful elements, such as parasites. If there are a lot of harmful substances passing through the digestive system, the mucous lining increases in size to capture, detoxify and remove the ‘intruders’. The mucus lining normally regenerates itself after contact with the irritating substances. Constant exposure, however, causes this line of defense to be brake up. As a result, various organ structures become susceptible to harmful microbes and get inflamed or injured.

The body’s response to this threat, which makes this the third line of defense, is commonly known as infection. Infection, however, is not caused by microbes, but by the constant overexposure of body tissue to irritating toxins. Microbes are always present in the body and harmless unless they are needed to clean up putrefying and damaged cell tissue. They produce strong toxins as part of their clean-up activities. The infection itself, which often involves major lymphatic activity and inflammatory swelling, results from a massive immune response (increase of antibodies and immune cells.) At this stage of disease development, scar tissue may be formed and defects begin to occur. This marks the beginning of chronic illness, which represents the final line of defense.

Cell Mutation

When toxins eventually make their way into the tissue surrounding the cells of the body (called connective tissue) and into the cells themselves, some of them are cut off from their oxygen or nutrient supply. This causes the cell’s internal environment to become acidic, too, rendering its own defense system ineffective. To survive the assault by the acidic substances, the cell’s nucleus has no other choice but to mutate, that is, to reprogram its genes to behave in a cancerous manner.

Yet this response also is just another aspect of the body’s clever defense strategies. The cell sacrifices its normal balanced state to protect the body against sudden demise through septic poisoning or wasting. Cancer cells have learned to live without oxygen (anaerobic). To obtain energy for cell survival, they utilize metabolic waste products that are stuck in the acidified, congested area; this in turn brings temporary relief for the body.

Cancer is one of the body’s final survival attempts to minimize the life-threatening toxicity that is suffocating an area of cell tissue. When the connective tissue surrounding the cells of the body becomes saturated with highly acidified, undigested foods such as animal protein, acidosis results. Acidosis is the most common cause of illness; in fact it can paralyze the entire immune system. In such case, the cancer serves as an emergency immune system to help the body survive a little longer than it would otherwise. Eventually, however, this strategy fails, unless the concentration of toxicity is drastically reduced.

When Your Body Speaks

The physical appearance of disease always is usually accompanied by the emergence of hitherto repressed emotions that have lurked in the shadow of one’s personality. Thus, cancer, which marks the collapse of the body’s primary defense lines, is nothing more than a desperate attempt by the body/mind complex to bring to the surface of one’s attention an underlying emotional self-attack.

Having a harmful ‘habit’ is basically a form of self-denial. When you deny yourself anything in life, due to feelings of guilt or low worthiness, you will look for external or more superficial ways to gain satisfaction. When this strategy fails, you may express your dismay perhaps in the following manner: “I can’t cope anymore”, “God doesn’t love me” or “It’s all so unfair!” And if you don’t like yourself the way you are, with all your faults and gifts, you naturally tend to seek love and attention from others. All your energy and passion are channeled into securing external acceptance and approval because you believe that you are lacking these within – that you are not good enough.

Low self-worth puts you on the defense. This usually occurs when you can’t get from others what you actually want from yourself. You are truly seeking self-empowerment in life; it is built into you as a natural survival instinct. Because it is not in your best interest to have your expectations fulfilled by others, you will most likely to be disappointed more often than less if you try. To bury your hurt or deny it, you may try to cover up the frustration of not getting what you want from others or from the world. At the same time, though, you will attempt to fill the inner void with such forms of self-destruction as abusing alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, sugar, junk food, sex, money, power and influence. Each one of those attempts represents an unbalanced perception of yourself.

The body, in turn, is forced to defend itself against these direct or indirect assaults until one defense line after another breaks down. The final phase of the body’s of defense intelligence is chronic illness, such as heart disease, arthritis or cancer. These diseases are nothing but a last S-O-S call by the body to alert you that it is under attack and that it wants to be treated kindly. Like every living being on this planet, each cell of the body wants to be accepted for what it is and for what it contributes to the whole.

Health And Self-image

The degree of physical health and wellness reflects the degree of self-acceptance and self-honor. Love, health and vitality emerge or are naturally present when you love and accept each part of yourself, especially your shadow side – the side of you that you rarely let others see. The degree of self-love determines how much love and kindness others mirror back to you. Being loved by others can never really satisfy you unless you feel that same love for yourself.

In reality, there is no low self-worth or lack of any kind, only a flawed perception of yourself. Taking your health into your hands is a very powerful and direct way to bring forth your inner power, sense of security and love of self. Your body will have no more need to defend itself in any respect, because it feels loved by you and receives what it needs to fulfill its purpose.

Someone who assumes positive responsibility for everything that happens to him is free from the illusion of injustice, of being a victim of sorts. He bears no judgment against himself, and therefore against anyone else. Everything is seen as appropriate and purposeful, a gift of his own divine intention. If something doesn’t make much sense, it still has value for him. He knows there is a larger picture involved, and trusts that both the light and dark, the right and wrong, health and sickness, good and bad are necessary attributes to strengthen his relationship with his Higher Self and that of all other beings.

Illness and even death are not indications of punishment, but can be seen as useful opportunities to complete ourselves even further. There are no real victims in life. If it were so, it would violate the universal law of non-interference. We cannot be attacked or harmed by someone else or by nature and its forces unless we have agreed to this on the level of Higher Self for reasons of growth and learning.

You Create Your Own Experiences

Each one of us is always in control. We are the creators of all our personal life experiences, whether they are beautiful and uplifting, or frustrating and depressing. Everything can be purposeful in life if we give it that meaning. There is no independent purpose or meaning to an event but the one we attach to it. Someone may give a positive meaning to his illness and accepts it as life-altering event, whereas another chooses to see it as living in hell. The first one may become a healer because of this experience; the second one spreads bitterness and spews anger around him.

There is always a choice in how you interpret a given situation. The choice carries the power to be a self-fulfilling prophecy. One person uses this power to heal his body from an illness, while another person uses the same power to belittle himself and violate his body even further. Healing takes place spontaneously once self-attack and self-denial come to an end. Cleansing the body is an act of love and self-acceptance and is interpreted by the body as a green light to heal and rejuvenate itself.

Cleansing Is An Act Of Love

To successfully remove fear, anger, traumas, low self-worth from the cellular memory of the body you need to cleanse it from impurities. This will persuade the body that there is no further need to defend itself, that is, to become ill. All so-called negative emotions are not actually held within the body’s own cellular or intercellular structure, but within the accumulated toxic waste material. Anger, for example, is energetically trapped within gallstones that block the bile ducts of the liver or are held inside the gallbladder. Most people in the developed world store between 500 and 5,000 of these stones in the liver alone. These highly toxic, bacteria-infested stones keep the frequency of consciousness low, which coerces you to deal with and, hopefully, learn from the emotions of resentment and anger.

By clearing the stones and toxins from the bile ducts of the liver and from the gallbladder, you naturally remove the trapped emotions. Deciding to do this, however, is far less an intellectual decision than an emotional one. You will know it in your gut when it is time to cleanse your liver. If you need to be persuaded to do this, it is probably not the right time. It is a true act of self-love to purify the body. When you feel it, there is no more choice you need to make; you have already made it. Many life lessons are mastered through this one simple act of self love. A person who purges his liver from these stones feels uplifted, more kind and loving toward himself and others. His frequency vibrates at a higher note – the note of love and self-acceptance.

Likewise, dissolving and removing grease, crystals, and/or stones that have accumulated in the kidneys and bladder removes old fear from the body; this kind of fear is usually related to one’s upbringing and/or difficulties with parents. Deep colon cleansing, as it occurs during a colonic irrigation, allows the body to release old beliefs and self-imposed limitations. Unless you cleanse the body physically, emotional cleansing may be a never-ending process. This is because any kind of congestion in the digestive system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, urinary system, circulatory system, etc. triggers fear in the body. And fear feeds all other negative emotions. Learning to trust that your health is in your hands unerringly leads you to emotional, physical and spiritual freedom.
