Alchemizing our Wholeness

Part 1 of Alchemizing our Wholeness

Plant MedicineSeptember – it’s a time in the Northern hemisphere, where the leaves begin to turn as the harvest of the summer reveals the fruits of that which were planted in the spring.

This year there is a profound emotional effect, as we emerge among the seeds of apprehension, fear, political chatter, media missives, speculations, false leads, directives, anger and upheavals, and a plethora of good, bad, and indifferent news/views.

Summer is turning into autumn, where leaves drop from the trees, leaving the branches barren, and leading us into the season of cold and quiet. This is a time that invites us to go deep, exposing the core values which guide us through our lives.

Many of us are challenged during these changing times. Yes, it seems that through the spring and summer months of this year, our core values have been tested, tried and questioned. Is this a calling of inner transformation. Are we being required to find the deeper truths, that can help us to navigate through these waters better?

September is a time where nature is changing in so many ways – inviting us to see where we have changed, how we have become transformed, and how we are ready to chart our course for the rest of the year. They call these the chaotic nodes, transition periods that, for some, leave a question… where to next??

This is the natural cycle of nature herself.

We are especially buffeted with changes in so many areas of life, as specifically in the medical care of ourselves and our families. So many issues showing up, questioning the efficacy of our main medical tract – how do we in fact truly take care of ourselves? Who are we to listen to? What are the missing pieces? Tthey are coming from all directions!

This is the beginning of a Medical Revolution.. a time, where the standard prescription for this or that is not showing up as a cure, and cures are not being allowed to be known. Basic scientific knowledge is not being allowed to stand in the front lines and challenge the assumptions that are being put forward as truths – in fact they are being censored in an unprecedented way, where anything that is NOT a part of the mainstream media is being torn down. New science is not being allowed to emerge, and when it does peak its head out, it is blasted, and attempts are made to discredit it with a lack of authority to do so.

Is this for real? Yes, it is happening in our time.

I wanted to close out this post by reminding us that The Wisdom of the Elders in using Plant Medicine is important in maintaining our health. Aromatherapy coupled with Ancient wisdom and use of plants and their gifts have upheld humanity in their path of life through the ages. In today’s world, there is a calling for a return to the natural world and self-nurturing. The relationship between aromatic plants, herbs, extracts, and essential oils enhances our relationship with ourselves, our dreams and our community.

Covid Concerns and Considerations

By now you are awashed with all kinds of information on the COVID 19 issue, with statistics, all over the place. With the rebuttals against the statistics. With all the viewpoints on Masks/No Masks On all the Social Distancing opinions. I’m not going to go through those here. I respect everyone’s journey and intellectual choices.

Build Your Immune System

I do feel it is important to share with you some of the posts that you may or may not get a chance to see. Unfortunately, this is because so much is being censored and controlled by the Media and Social Media, that it becomes hard to be able to evaluate all sides of the issue. This is particularly daunting as every day, we continue to find out more and more about this virus and what it is and what it isn’t. Even with 40 years under the study of virus, we do not have definitive answers. Viruses do not act like bacteria, because they are not alive… they are pieces of DNA and other particles, that then, under varying conditions can be instrumental in the disruption of a biosystem. It is these “varying conditions” that we attempt to observe and come to some conclusions. So, at this time, we are all trying to do our best, with our understanding to be safe, and find our way through.

I cannot and will not stop stressing the fact that WE MUST KNOW AND IMPROVE OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM! That is why we offer the technologies that we do here at Integrated Healing Arts Wellness Center. It is the only thing right now that truly will pay off to keep us safe.

Let Freedom Ring — The Aromatic Touch

The Fourth of July is just around the corner… Yes – the birth of the United States, based on the freedom of the individual and 44 years ago, the patriots were fighting against the ideologies of the time… Does this sound familiar? There are so many polarities in our culture these days… and it seems that everyday, something new comes up to rally against or for…

Aromatherapy I created this blend a few years ago, when I was doing the Farmer’s Market. I was very inspired at the time, as I had the opportunity to share all the various sites in the East Coast where my California children could really get the feel of what was going on at the time.

The year was 1975, and our country was getting ready for the Bicentennial – 200 years. We visited Valley Forge, Boston, Jamestown among several other sites, every weekend. This was such a rich experience, as we got very in touch with the energy and challenges that our ancestors were up against.

As I reflected on this, I began to pair the fragrances that represented the energies we experienced during this Bicentennial. These were: courage, confidence, passion, grounded, inspired.Continue reading

How is our Cranial Therapy Different

Our Cranial Therapy differs from craniosacral therapy in several important ways.

Cranial Structural Bodywork is a structural approach. The treatment focus is on improving movement in fascia, muscles and tendons, from the top of your head to your toes.

Our primary objective is to relieve the pain and limitations our patients experience when their joints and muscles are restricted or do not function comfortably. Results that our patients can see and feel very soon after treatment are always the goal.

Dirty Little Secret on Underarm Health

The underarm thermographic picture showing congestions on the left set of photos, and 3 mos. later — cleared from connection through using the right deodorant and skin brushing.

underarm thermogramThe armpits are an important detox exit from the body — but what do we do — we block this exit!!

These pictures are done with a Thermagram Camera — which detects inflammation ( yellow to red shows the presence of congestion – red being high) Where there is inflammation, there is congestion, where the lymph fluid is not moving as it should. The lymph nodes are located around and near the armpits, and when Congestion is found — it is important to move the lymph to clear the congestion.
