Now is the best time to learn

I have a workshop for you! READ about what I have to offer. Contact me to set up to learn.

HEALTH AND HEALING WORKSHOP

What is health to you?

what is healing to you?

What is your definition of the health condition and healing action?

Have you thought of “well-being”? This is a term not considered much.

Do you know what true joy is? Is your finances, career, social life, physical fitness, cooking, home environment, and relationships accounted for in your health and well-being?

The subjects no so common in a health course are: Creation, Before the womb, in the womb, primary food, secondary food, core gut physical health, core gut spiritual health. I have a course for this. The healing is amazing when we put all this together and know we have the power created within us, the knowledge created within us, and the empowerment to see it one on one. You can take this journey. You know more than you think you do.

Goals include: walking away with confidence, authority, and will to mend, heal, prevent, prepare, treat, research and utilize all options. You will question and prove all things. You will understand what medicine is.

SELF-CARE WORKSHOP

Bring a someone to learn some basic massage techniques and feel empowered to heal together. Contact me to set up a learning session.

Emotional Stress: Anxiety, Depression and Panic Attacks: A neurologic and psychiatric like condition caused by cervical spine instability

The excerpt below is part of a long article explaining the connection between cervical instability and symptoms as described in my title. I have clients who fall into this category, as well as myself over the years. I have researched and learned the therapies that can change the trajectory of the condition. I am seeing amazing results with the combination of chiropractic and the specified therapies I use, along with diet, mineral testing and balancing, biofeedback, and hormone/thyroid testing and balancing.

Take the time to read below, learn more and heal your body naturally. Jeana, Natural Helping Hands, LLC.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A story: “I have been diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder with psychotic features, chronic fatigue, anxiety, PTSD, sinusitis, fibromyalgia, seizures, to name a few. I have tried multiple medications but nothing seems to work or they work for a very small period of time. I have no energy, my mood is in anger all the time, I have no rest from pain ever (even with Vicodin or anesthesia injections), my head pounds ALL THE TIME like if my sinuses were stuffed with mucus, my vision gets blurry, brain fogginess, my heart muscle aches, my whole left arm is always in pain or numbed, as too is my left leg all the way to the tiny toe. So, I googled exactly what I felt: what runs from the brain stem (right from where the neck starts), comes down towards my left arm, circles around the heart, pinches the lower back, and goes down the left leg ending with numbness of the toes? And that is when I discovered it was the vagus nerve. And of course after that, I googled how do I get treated? I am taking Lyrica 200 mg twice a day, cymbalta 60 mg, tizanidine 4 mg as needed, Vicodin 10/325 mg every eight hours, clonazepam 1 mg as needed once a day, and an abilify shot every month for depression, and levetiracetam for seizures. However, nothing seems to help or get anywhere near my healing. It’s been seven years now trying different antidepressants, all sorts of medication, spiritual journeys, different diagnosis, chiropractors, massages, ECT in my brain (seizure induction therapy with electricity), MRI’s, EEG’s, sleep studies, etc. and am here on this day defenseless asking for another opinion or a new hope towards recovery.”

Personality changes and emotional health problems often seen in patients with cervical dysstructure

Ross Hauser, MD discusses emotional symptoms and personality changes that may have a structural link to the neck in some cases.

This video is on one of the most important topics we see in patients. How ligamentous cervical instability, that is how weak and damaged neck ligaments are not able to support and hold the neck and head in place, allowing the neck bones to compress on the neurologic (nerve) processes that run trough the neck and cervical spine.

This affects a person’s emotional stability and personality. Many patients have shared with us how psychological diagnosis such as bipolar disorders or personality disorders have been radically changed for the better once their neck and cervical spine instability or “dysstructure” a broken down neck structure, has been treated and natural structure, curvature, and stability has been restored.

Anyone who’s had a change in emotional status or change in personality, that in some cases seems to have happened overnight, has to wonder why did this happen? What can happen is that a person’s brain pressure can reach certain levels where certain parts of the brain will no longer function correctly or the brain’s nerve impulses and messages are not reaching other parts of the body, or when those messages do arrive, they are jumbled and distorted and nothing makes sense. They will have a sudden change in emotional stability, for instance they could have new onset of anxiety. If know somebody whose personality is absolutely changed, almost overnight,  more irritability or lack of interest in things, they don’t care about the future, all of a sudden they’re very depressed or all of a sudden they have bipolar disorder, you have to think, this is night right? What is going on? It could be cervical spine instability.

This is the background slide in the introduction of the video. A brief summary is given below.

Healthy Back

  I’ve been talking the last few weeks about our Healthy Back Challenge and today I am so excited to kick this off with you.  Over the next 5 days I will be sharing valuable information with you through a daily email. Each day we will provide some tips and exercises to help you live a life free from back aches and pains.   For Day #1 let’s talk about how miraculous the human spine is. God designed an elegantly balanced system and foundational support of the entire body. The spine balances our neck, chest, lower back and pelvis to keep our neck, body and legs in alignment. Every move we make engages the spine.   So What Causes Back Pain? The spine is a stack of 33 vertebrae connected and cushioned by cartilage and connective tissue and like other joints in the body, they can experience inflammation and pain. Pain in the back can be caused by long-term impact of injury, poor posture, inactivity, too much sitting or certain diseases.   80% of the population suffers from some type of chronic back pain. Two-thirds of adults age 40+ show disc deterioration and by age 60, 90 percent are affected.   Back aches and pain can result from muscle strain, weakness, lack of exercise, injury or straining the back from too much of the wrong kind of activities. The good news is with proper care, toning and conditioning improving back aches and pain is possible!   As we go through this Challenge, I would love for you to think about why you decided to join. How would less back pain affect your quality of life? What activities do you love to do or would love to get back to doing? Knowing our “why” is what motivates us to stay committed and consistent.   I’m sharing common every day causes of back pain in today’s video.

Stress and Anxiety

25,000 genes at conception

These genes multiply to trillions upon trillions as organs grow and humans develop.

Genes: 65% are the same as a banana, 75% are the same as a fruit fly, 80% are the same as a mouse, 99% are the same as a chimpanzee. We are human, not animal. We have a percent that is only human, setting us apart from all life forms.

96% of all elements in the body are Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Nitrogen. 4 % are all the other elements. All are important blocks to our body.

What does this have to do with stress and anxiety? Before our birth (constitution), our conception day, while we are in the womb, our birth, place of birth, and after birth (condition) play a part in our daily lives. Stress and anxiety can be from imbalances of elements, trauma, circumstances, food, environment, and more.

Everything that occurs in our lives is embedded in our fascia; imprints of trauma in life never go away, but it can be turned around/changed.

Join us as we take on this huge subject, break it down into intricate parts, and tune into bio individuality.

Live Stream, Rumble, each Thursday at 10 am. It will be recorded as well. WE will be in the series of stress and anxiety for the next 6 weeks or more. Series episodes will include: nutritional influences in connection to emotional eating, dehydration, maternal caregivers and general caregivers, navigating relationships, and physical manifestations such as allergic reactions, panic attacks, and mood disorders.

jazz it up with PAZAZ !

Did you also know that dancing is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s?! Dancing requires your brain to work harder to master the steps, it also involves cross body movements and elevates your heart rate so not only are you giving your body a great workout but your brain too! If you want to keep your brain sharp you should PAZAZ regularly.

If you are new to Faithful Workouts, PAZAZ may be a new term for you. It’s a fun name for our cardio/dance style workouts. This style of workout is such a fun way to exercise, plus they help women improve their heart health, reduce anxiety and depression while promoting better sleep.      Here’s another fun fact for you: PAZAZ comes from the Hebrew word David used in the Bible to describe dancing with joy for all that the Lord had done as he was leading the ark into Jerusalem (2 Samuel 6:16).   We offer a variety of styles of cardio so if you haven’t tried PAZAZ you are in for a real treat! You will love this workout filmed in Costa Rica.

Get out of your head

“What if, instead of spending our energy trying to fix the symptoms, we went to the root of the problem? The reality is that our emotions are a byproduct of the way we think. What’s good about this news is that we can change our thinking.”

As I read that quote from a bible devotional, and thought of what that means, I began to get back to the meaning of my callings in Life. I had lost a little bit of the passion that grew this business this past year. I had been so busy taking care of the business as it has blossomed, that I lost a tiny portion of the initial seed that sprouted. (I am a gardener and I cannot help but speak in gardening terms).

Scripture is bringing me back to that seed core. This statement is bringing me back to that intention for each and every interaction, from clients to marketing, that I have invested into this amazing work: “God, help me break the cycle of my out-of-control thoughts. I want Your truths to invade every decision, every emotion, every thought I have. Amen.

I truly care about you.

thoughts on the trail

Appearances are not always what they seem.

You have probably seen the picture of the small iceberg that appears to be harmless. Yet, underneath is a much larger picture of the iceberg’s true size. This picture is used a lot in self help arenas.

I have another picture for you. I was walking along and kicked a small rock. It did not move. I decided to reach down and pull it up to move it. It did not budge.

I kicked and pushed and pulled for many minutes. Finally I took hold of it, pulled in several directions, and managed to get it out. It was a large rock, not a small rock as it appeared from the surface. And, to top that off, it had an L shape in in.

The hole was deep. I stepped back and just marveled at this for a few moments, thinking about how we kick and tear at issues, people or situations in our life; most often than not, they are rooted bigger than we expect them to be. If we stay at it and finally get the entire thing worked out, the hole is usually deep.

The relief is revealing, calming, closing, refreshing, anguishing, exasperating, penetrating, unyielding, struggling, and trying. We then work on mending the hole. I will leave this with you to ponder. I am pondering it, reading scriptures to understand it, and keeping it as a reminder of our human intricacies.


I am here to help you through these times of kicking, tearing and figuring things out.

How to Make Herbal Liniment by Jethro Kloss July 1, 2010/

Click here the image above to learn more

in Remedies & Recipes /by Kimberly Gallagher

Rosemary Gladstar’s book the Family Herbal: A Guide to Living Life with Energy, Health, and Vitality

this recipe is one of our family favorites and we are very excited to have this opportunity to talk with her and share her herbal wisdom with all of you. She describes this remedy, Jethro Kloss’s Liniment, as “a very old, very strong recipe & useful for reducing inflammation of the muscles, cleansing wounds, and soothing insect bites.” This liniment was first concocted by a famous old herbalist named Dr. Jethro Kloss, hence its name. The herbs in this liniment by Jethro Kloss have antiseptic, warming, stimulating, and anti-inflammatory properties. They will also help increase circulation in areas where muscles are sore. We haven’t made a liniment in a while, and wanted to update our supply, since we definitely find that it is a great addition to our herbal family medicine chest. I used our liniment a lot for sore back muscles during my first pregnancy and found this one by Jethro Kloss to be very effective, and it is very simple to make. Herbal Liniment by Jethro Kloss What you’ll need… 1 ounce echinacea powder 1 ounce organically grown goldenseal powder (I do want to emphasize the organically grown part of this description. This plant is endangered in the wild from over-harvesting, so be sure and get it from a healthy, cultivated source. If you can ‘t find that, Rosemary suggests substituting chaparral or Oregon grape root) 1 ounce myrrh powder 1/4 ounce cayenne powder 1 pint rubbing alcohol Need organic herbs or supplies? Get them here! Ok, start by weighing out the powders and putting them in a pint jar. Pour the rubbing alcohol over the powders, leaving a good 2-inch margin above the herbs. Stir and put a lid on the jar. Place the mixture in a warm location and let it sit for 4 weeks. (2 weeks is also fine). Strain and rebottle.

Label the bottle clearly FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY (rubbing alcohol should not be taken internally). We’ve found that bottling our liniments in a spray bottle is very handy. It’s easy to spray it onto areas with sore muscles or onto wounds that need cleaning.

Enjoy this wonderful addition to your family medicine chest from Jethro Kloss.
