According to Ayurvedic medicine, a natural system of healing that began in India 3,000 years ago and is still heavily utilized in that country, the body is not just flesh and bones, but a complex electrical system. While most people in the U.S. may not be familiar with it, thankfully we have people like Deepak Chopra, who bring us a wealth of information from every corner of the wellness world. Deepak tells us that the human body has over 70,000 circuits. Sounds unbelievable, right? But think about it: when a person's heart stops, the doctors apply electrodes to jumpstart it - that's because the heart is electrical, just like the rest of the body. In my own clinical practice, I have discovered a few circuits that can be activated to prevent disturbances.
Typically, natural healing is a slower process than the pharmaceutical approach of primarily controlling symptoms. While taking medication you may experience quick relief, yet the underlying cause is rarely addressed. Natural healing (including Ayurvedic medicine), focuses on balancing the mind, body and spirit, which can sometimes take longer; however, there are times in natural healing when instant relief does happen. I know because I treat four conditions - kidney stones, painful intercourse, jet lag, and natural flu protection - that regularly fall into that category. Occasionally, it may take two or three sessions to get results.
Anyone who has experienced kidney stones will tell you it is one of the most painful things imaginable. Most stones form due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors, including high calcium levels in the urine, obesity, certain foods, some medications, calcium supplements, gout and not drinking enough fluids. Once stones have formed they can be very difficult to get rid of - many people have to have lithotripsies, during which shock waves are used to "blast" the stones to bits, or even more invasive kidney surgery to remove them. I help them avoid all that with a natural energetic adjustment. Again, this may sound like hocus pocus, but I have several patients who after receiving this treatment did not experience kidney stones again, even after twenty years! I'm not treating kidney stones, but preventing it from occurring. It is also possible to prevent gallstones with a similar procedure.
Every once in a while, a female patient confides in me that she experiences painful sex. My first question for her is, "Have you ruled out any medical problems?" The most common reasons that women have discomfort during sex include infections; trauma or tissue injury; anatomic variations; hormonal imbalance; bladder irritation or interstitial cystitis; vulvodynia (chronic pain with an unknown cause); cancer or pelvic mass; and vaginal dryness. However, painful sex can also be rooted in the emotions, such as fear of pain or injury, feelings of guilt or shame, and fear of pregnancy. If the patient's gynecologist has told her that there is no physiological reason for the discomfort, I offer my help. My approach is to release any underlying negative feeling associated with intercourse. There is "no talking it out" - just a pinpoint emotional adjustment. Usually it takes just one session to eliminate any unpleasant sexual memory or feeling.
The Drag of Jet Lag
Many people, after flying cross-country, to or from Europe, or anywhere where they cross time zones experience the unpleasantness known as jet lag. Symptoms include daytime sleepiness, irritability and digestive discomfort, and it can be enough to make someone dread their next vacation. Physicians say it's a disruption of the Circadian rhythm; I say it's a disruption in their electromagnetic energy field, and I do a polarity-based treatment that prevents it, usually in a single session.
Preventing the Flu Naturally
Each year everyone from our doctors and families, coworkers and Big Pharma encourages us to get the flu shot. We see commercials for it 'round the clock, and every pharmacy we pass has a large sign offering flu protection. No one wants to get the flu, but is it really worth getting injected with a vaccine that contains mercury? It never ceases to amaze me that pregnant women are told to avoid tuna and other fish because they contain mercury, then are advised to get a flu shot that injects the same neurotoxin right into their bloodstream! I offer natural protection for influenza that, in a single session, ensures the patient's bioenergy is like "Teflon" to the flu. This treatment works like a charm and is 100% mercury-free!
fIf these treatments sound unbelievable to you, you are not alone. After all, we live in a culture that still pushes pharmaceutical and surgical fixes for the smallest ailments to the most serious illnesses. The energy systems of the body remain a mystery, even to those who, like me, have been studying them for years. But to my patients whose quality of life has drastically improved, these treatments are nothing short of miraculous.
