Multiple brains?

Where is your brain located?

Poster depicting Steve Martin in the legendary comedy the man with two brains.An old classic

Is it true that we have more than one brain?  These ideas come from a pioneer in the research field Dr. Gershon. He writes about why we can feel in our stomach feelings as anxiety, fear and anger. The main reason is that serotonin ,that is like a messenger to the brain, is stored in the stomach. When we repress the feelings that our gut is trying to tell us about , we can cause ourselves to be sick. Some believe that all dis-eases come because of poor diet, lack of rest too much stress and repressed anger or repressed feelings. The whole article is linked above and it explains why we can feel in our gut. The gut feeling has logical explanation and there is no wonder why we say ; I can feel it in my gut.

The alternative 

The funny thing is when I was reading about Gershon, I found another doctor a Doctor with a slightly different name Dr. Gerson. And he was remarkable character, I had already seen an interview with his daughter in the film food matters. The Gerson institute offers a alternative cancer treatment without the chemotherapy. It offers a program that is more natural, here is more about the very intriguing Dr. Gerson

Dr. Max Gerson: Healing the Hopeless discusses the development of his world-famous dietary therapy and the struggles this medical pioneer faced as he challenged orthodox medicine with his nutritional protocol. This inspiring and uplifting biography follows Dr. Gerson through Nazi persecution, then persecution in the United States from the medical establishment, the continuation of his work despite the opposition, his questionable death and finally the present, where daughter Charlotte Gerson and the Gerson Institute work to continue his legacy and vision.

This is a video on the Gerson Miracle, the beginning and the continuing work of the Gerson Institute.It explains the body´s encounter with poisons. Clearly one more mind-blowing video.

This is an almost fifty minutes long video with Charlotte Gerson who is 90 years old! She is amazing. This is fifty minutes well spent I promise!

I simply love Charlotte Gerson, she is my role model. I want to be like her when I am 90!!

The body has remarkable healing powers, we only need to unleash the power.

The power to heal.

If you don´t have anything else planned on this saturday night, This is a film by 15-year-old Garret, called the Beautiful truth. It is about the Gerson therapy and health issues like how amalgam in fillings can deprive people of their health. The issue of food additives like MSG and aspartame is touched and the issue of GMO foods and much more! It is remarkable to witness the denial in the medical profession that say Dr. Gerson therapy is a hoax. If I had to choose today I would choose Dr.Gerson´s method without hesitation!

Why holistic?

What exactly is a holistic approach?

For me it means balance. Keeping balance in my life. I have had periods that I have eaten poorly, deprived the body of nourishment and fed it with sugar and coffee.

There are times that I have been emotionally absent from my family and put all my energy into my work. Borderline  workaholic, if you like. I have had moments when neither home nor work was a good place to be. In other words I was depressed.

In this post I am trying to explain what the holistic approach means to me. I dug up some links that I have found helpful and pictures that I have taken from other web sources but I have linked back to the source. The five elements of holistic approach are explained in the picture below.We need all of the elements to harmonize ,in order to feel whole. Ergo feel well, in the state of Well-being.

We know that exercise and nutrition contribute to our well-being but did you know that meditation and relaxation play as important role?

We need rest, exercise and nourishment to keep the body «machine» working but the mind  also needs rest, meditation unwinds us from stress. Stress in a contributing factor to many dis-eases of the body.Stress is a modern society health threat.Stress increases the PH value in the body. If the PH value is high we are more likely to get sick, than if the PH value is balanced.

The five pieces of our cake

Relationships Our relationships matter, it means that the people in your life can not be draining you of energy. In order to have balanced relationship, you will have to find a way to stop letting people robbing you of your energy. The weird thing is that we often have draining relationships in our immediate family. It is worth working on because these are the people you can usually not just stop seeing.

Career We tend to get absorbed in our work. But we can not let it overrides everything else in our life. I have tendencies to get too wrapped up in the things I am doing. Sometimes it would drain me of all my energy and when I came back home there was just the shell left. I was deflated for energy from my work.

Spirituality We need to have some refuge, it does not matter what name we put on it. If it is a higher power or if we practice meditation. We need a break every now and then. To tune down and reconnect with ourselves. I find it helpful to study the balance of my chakras.

physical activity The best we can do for our body is just do 30 minutes a day of exercise. We need to run the machinery so it won´t get rusty and stiff. Walk, ride a bicycle. Find a steep hill and walk up it. Go to the gym. Whatever suits your rhythm and preference.

Nourishment We need good balanced diet and plenty of water. Water is the base. Food is a big part og our lives. It´s the hardest part to keep balanced. Our cravings can tell us la little about our imbalances, on mind-body green  there is a summary of food cravings and the source for the craving.

There are holistic resources like the holistic health library that have information regarding all parts of our holistic living.

The thing is there must be balance between the ares of our lives. Look at it as a cake , is just one cake. You are it. If work is too big of a slice the others are smaller. The cake is not getting bigger. There are 24 hours in a day. You need to divide them wisely. for you.

I find the chakra Wisdom helpful in understanding the balance. Here is a chakra wisdom from sspirituality and self-help . The seven chakras are explained. This blog for example is my way of regaining strength in my throat chakra. The chakra that deals with self-expression and communication.

Seven chakras meditation has an online support of the chakra well-being and some useful tips.

You shall be mortified!

i take drugs

It is tornado season and I have been glued to the weather channel. Usually I don´t watch television but we wanted to know if we should take some action. I am a total rookie when it comes to tornadoes. What has caught my attention is the advertisements. They are all for medication. To keep you pain-free,  sneeze free  and make you sleep. But the message is you should buy the product out of shame! You should be mortified if you sneeze at a school concert. And the killing look the old lady in front of you sends your way. Should make you understand that you do not belong! This is an assembly for non sneezing people only!

In the first place, if you are sneezing, you are not well. You should rest and get yourself healthy. I am truly thankful for the medication upbringing I got. Medication is for emergencies. There are few things that hot tea with honey and lemon, hot bath and sleep can´t  fix. If we are feeling sick. Our body is at dis-ease. We should listen.

Rest is the best thing when we are feeling sick. There are some herbs and remedies that I find useful.  If I feel that I am coming down with something. The first thing I take is olive leaf extract. I find it to  work before I get sick and it boosts the immune system. Second stage I take Echinacea , I use the concentrated liquid version , Vitamin c in large doses  1000 mg is what I take to boost my immune system. Tea with licorice root is really good to keep the throat clear. I sometimes make green tea with fresh ginger and cayenne pepper for my throat.

Garlic is  magical. If you slice the garlic and put it between two slices of apple It´s no problem chewing it raw. (Trick my nine-year old taught me). If there is something going on in my throat the garlic kills everything. A juice of carrot, with ginger and oranges is good to boast the immune system. If you can get a shot of wheat grass and ginger, that is one juice that is like a power plant!

If I can´t sleep I take a blend of calcium magnesium, it calms me down.

I find it useful to drink water, water is the best remedy nature has to offer. If you are drinking enough water , your urine is light yellow, if it gets dark yellow or brownish you are definitely not drinking enough water. People that live of their voice monitor their urine. Because the first things that you lose is your voice if you dry out.

At least these commercials are made to feed the; I -got- to- have -that-so- that -I -won´t- look -like -an-idiot- to- the- strangers -I might -sneeze- in- front -of!

«What will they think?» I´s just not cool using shame as a motivator to buy something.

Eat alive and you will thrive

This is Yuri Elkaim and  he has some additional info on how to boost the immune

system. 

Nice lecture almost 10  minutes. ( I will come back to Yuri later)

So be shameless! And take matter in your own hands!

I just had to post this, because the message is so clear. The three main causes of PREVENTABLE  causes of deaths in the U.S.A  are;

  1. Smoking
  2. Obesity

Obesity  is caused by addiction  and it needs to be treated like one. And prevented by avoiding the unhealthy, food like products, that is referred  to  in the trailer.

Americas Fat Future

Does the future have to be like America´s Fat Future presents, or can we do something about it?

If you think organic food is expensive, just think of it as money saved in medical expenses later in life. When I started to buy more organic and more healthy food I had to adjust to the price tag. But I know that I am investing in me, for a more movable fun me,  in the future. The poster below is loaded with facts about preventable deaths. That is why we should care.

Sublime Palate

After a 3-month hiatus, I am back to the blogosphere with plenty of good wishes for a belated but very Happy & refreshing 2012 to all. I hope the year has been good so far and you are looking forward to the rest of the year.

In the beginning of the year, a friend said that 2012 is a year of change. I made fun of him then, but I get a feeling – he is going to be right.

For me, 2012 kicked off in a memorable way. V started school this year. Play school – but a school nevertheless. He was excited about going to school and that was a good sign. I really didn’t expect him to be shy. I was more worried about the other kids as my little one can be too friendly at times and this goes beyond the social norms of what is…
