Yoga Nidra is becoming more and more “popular”. It’s been known and used by yogis as part of holistic yoga practice since I began my yoga practice over 35 years ago. It’s now being presented as a “mainstream” class where you can take a nap – but it’s oh so much more than that!
Have you ever noticed that incessant chatter going on inside of your head? It’s like having a constantly talking voice going on about everything and nothing….eating up so much of your time, attention and more importantly, your energy.
Yoga Nidra is the practice of getting so deeply relaxed, resting beneath the thoughts, free from all the opinions, preferences and judgments of the mind. When we rest in this effortless state of being and deep peace, all judgments of the mind disappear and the body, mind, and soul can restore in ways that are profound.
Have you been thinking of starting a holistic health and wellness program but you’re not sure where to start and you’re scared of wasting time on the wrong steps? Let me be your guide! I’ll show you the right steps on how to build a lifestyle to feel better, look better and function better every day of your life.
Why Is It Still Considered Such in the Mainstream Medical world?!?
The very first question asked by the doc – Do you have a family history of cancer?
It’s no longer relevant. We know far too much now but there is still over 100 Billion $$$$ spent annually on genetic research for cancer. That cancer and many other diseases or metabolic and related to the cellular or mitochondria has been known for over a century from all the books I’ve read – some which were published in 1927 –
Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D writes in his 2016 book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer
“What we have to recognize … is that if cancer is a mitochondrial metabolic disease and you get cancer because of mitochondrial failure in certain populations of cells and certain tissues, if you prevent your mitochondria from entering into this dysfunctional state … [then] the probability of getting cancer is going to be significantly reduced.
To what percent? I would say a minimum of 80 percent. Cancer is probably, as I said in my book, one of the most manageable diseases that we know of …
The problem is that many people don’t want [to take the preventive steps to avoid cancer]. They’re like, ‘I have to therapeutically fast for a week? Oh, I’m not going to. Give me a break’ … An effective prevention is to eat less and move more. A lot of people don’t want to do that … Once you realize what cancer is, that it’s a metabolic disease, you can take charge of those kinds of things. In other words, getting cancer is not God’s will. It’s not bad luck.”
Why don’t more people know about this? Why doesn’t every doctor and practitioner who deals with anyone with cancer of any kind know this stuff?
Why were the only options presented in the year 2018 – cutting, burning and poisoning? And that I chose not do more research and not schedule my surgery and next steps was a given the stink eye. Something is not right here. And it’s gotta be more than just that people don’t want to change their diet.
When I was finally diagnosed with Celiac disease after a string of diagnosis trying to find out what was “wrong” I found out about colonics as a Tool for self healing.
This was back in the 90’s when little was even considered around gluten and it’s harm on our gut health. You see, I was in great shape physically but I was constantly sick, lethargic, depressed, had anxiety attacks and so on. I had diagnoses of lupus, fibromyalgia, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome and from the cult I was in I was known as PTS (potential trouble source). The common theme here though – it’s all symptomatic. None of it ever looked at the WHOLE person. So to even consider that what’s going on in the intestines might have an effect on the whole was really unheard of.
To date though, the 2nd biggest progress I made was when colonics were recommended to me by my Functional Medicine MD. The first has to do with the mind and our thoughts and that’s in another article worth checking out.
Although it was the first I’d investigated colonics for myself, hydro therapy has been around since ancient Egyptian times and I knew about enemas. In fact, enemas we not uncommon only distasteful to discuss and likely “died out” as a very simple workable solution illness around the same time our natural and traditional diet and medicine was displaced in the early part of the 1900s.
My first set of colonics I did with a professional therapist. I learned so much from her and appreciate the experience greatly. I started out doing 2 per week for a month then 1 weekly then 1 monthly for about a year. It may seem like a lot – and I’ve heard people say they don’t need it because they poop regularly, but believe me when I say, there could be a lodged piece of dead food in your upper intestines…well…it’s not really a fun topic but it’s necessary.
I had done regular (weekly) coffee enemas as part of the Gerson therapy for cancer but my RBTI practitioner reminded me the significant difference between the enema and the colonic. They are not even close to being the same.
The enema is only getting the lower colon…
It’s very rare that only 1 colonic is needed. Colonics can get expensive. Right now they are around the $75 market – well worth it with a competent colon hydrotherapist of course but my budget couldn’t handle how many I would need over this period to get my health back. So I decided to invest in my own colonic board.
This is the colon board I have at home.
It’s all relative of course because I was an active health and fitness trainer and was really good at my job. But I think many people who go into a career they are passionate about do so because they have either been helped from it or have had someone they love helped. And we also keep learning because we want to keep getting better, for ourselves and for our clients.
