Eastern (Holistic) Medicine vs Western Medicine

east vs west

There is a war going on between western and eastern medicine – but there shouldn’t be – let’s go through it step by step.

Western approach to medicine is often looking at an object and cutting it up, and seeing whats inside to see what it does – and to understand it that way – to some extent, we understand things this way, and it helps (for some things) – but if you are trying to understand your friend’s problem, would you cut him up to see what’s inside? or talk to him and find out what he?she has to say?

Sometimes some thing make sense at first glance – but to understand things, it is important to take it to an extreme to really understand what is going on.

For example – conventional science is based on results and “proof” – and without this, there is nothing credible. This entirely limits a person’s view on life and how it works, IF this is adopted as the only approach – instead, it should be part of an approach, not the only approach.

Example below of scientific approach being flawed:

Fish in tank water – scientist wants to know if fish can survive without water if water is slowly taken out over long period of time; they slowly take 1 teaspoon of water out every week or so – and when the water is barely left, conclude that the fish has learnt to survive with less water, and looks like it will eventually learn to survive without water.

We all know what happens when you take away the last few amounts of water remaining in the tank – but according to science, it will be concluded that fish can eventually survive without a fish tank if water is taken out slowly.

This does not mean science is wrong – it means we must understand it’s limitations and be conscious of other possibilities and ways of calculations, including holistic approaches that are out there – even holistic approaches have limitations, each their own – for example, acupuncture is a type of holistic approach, but its limitation depends greatly on the practitioner and their knowledge.

The topic of acupuncture is so wide, and with so many approaches, one practitioner can be 100% different from another – hence it is difficult to regulate, although steps are being made to regulate such a system, it is very difficult to do so, as there are many ways to the top of the mountain; just like that, there are many ways to cure a human being from their misalignment, each way has its limitations or expenses or time frames – this should be consciously understood.

Please share this post if you find it helpful – it is intended to create awareness of all respectable medical systems, and all have their positions in society (western and eastern), and both will play a major part in evolving our individual health as well as global health.

Stop Hormone Imbalance Naturally and Surely

stopping hormone imbalances for men and women

 

Hormones can make us look and feel younger but also over worked and tired – they are what keeps and renew many aspects of our body – its not just testosterone or estrogen which are commonly known hormones by the average person; insulin and thyroid also are in this category – imbalance of hormones can also result in issues like hair thinning and bad quality skin as well as dulling of the eyes (you will know if you paid enough attention).

So what are the ways to naturally reset and balance the hormone system in men and women?

One very powerful method is by eating a certain diet; this diet does not really have a name, but is often referred to as the protein diet; and it involved eating only lean protein and dark green leafy greens, nothing else. All sugars are banned in this diet, and sugar is defined as fat, carbs, alcohol, sauces, fruit and everything that even remotely tastes like sugar – so everything is banned except lean meats, centered around beef (but not minced meat unless you mince it yourself and know that there is no added fat).

Beef is the priority meat over the other meats, but you can still have lamb, chicken, duck and even white fish (not salmon and other similar fish however as they are very fatty) – remember, you can’t have the skin parts of these as they also have fat.

naturally reset hormone system of men and women

So why is fat the enemy?

Fat is not the enemy – but the body uses the fat and sugars and even carbs to create hormones in the body; this affects the body if you have been eating a certain pattern of sugars which create a hormone imbalance – one powerful way to correct it is to stop eating all forms of fat – even one drop of fat will restart the hormone production and we want the internal hormone system to stay quiet for long enough (1 to 6 months and even up to a year for serious cases) so that the body adjusts itself to normal and balanced.

Its not that eating fat, carbs and sugars is bad; but often over consumption will lead the body to so many issues in the body, the only natural way is to fully stop eating all fats and sugars until the body resets – it is like fasting, but for the full hormone system of the body; in fasting, you give a rest to your stomach and don’t eat anything for a certain amount of time, this helps renew the stomach, with this diet, you help renew the hormone system as the body will be craving sugars and fat to produce hormone, but you are not providing it, and allowing the body to rest rather than always be flooded with all kinds of fats and sugars; if it is has nothing to do, it starts renewing itself and repairing anything that needed repairing but was not able to due to constant flow of sugar.

Another reason fat and sugar are removed from the diet, is that, they are the foods that inflammation feeds from; and inflammation is the root cause of most diseases; if this is handles well, inflammation simply cannot occur.

The best thing about this diet is – you look great after the diet. You lose weight too! But this is not the goal of this diet, just a side affect of not eating all those sugars and carbs.

Secrets of the Salt Baths

epsom salt baths

 

Salt baths are one of the most underrated type of bath there is; the health benefits are countless – specifically of having epsom salt baths at home.

Having just a footbath (add at least 2-3 cups of epsom salt into the foot bath tub – this is more than usually heard of) can act like a third kidney – it makes your skin act like a kidney and detoxifies your body at a faster rate – this is even great for constipation but also people who have been feeling weak, and sluggish from overworking – people not only feel immensely relaxed after a 15-20 minute foot bath, there body is also gone through a mini dialysis, cleaning the body of toxins.

Here are some benefits in easy to read bullet points:

– Detoxifies the body, acting like a third kidney, re-energizing you the next day

– Its so powerful, if done 3 times a day, it is equivalent to blood dialysis (but natural!)

– Will make you feel more energetic, and look younger

– Help you digest food that has been in your stomach for too long

– Revitalizes the cells in the body and slowing down the aging process

– Can help with people suffering from thinning hair in the scalp (men or women) as it reduces inflammation and detoxifies the body

Having an epsom salt bath regularly is highly beneficial if you are feeling sluggish and cannot seem to get into the same energetic state you once were – this is often due to toxin build up, and just like anything, our bodies require this cleaning too – sometimes by baths, sometimes by eating much cleaner, sometimes by even fasting (although fasting and epsom salt at the same time is not recommended as this will weaken you considerably).

If you have circulation conditions of any kind, or a weak heart (like poor blood pressure), then consult a doctor before use and also reduce the time you will stay in the bath – so rather than 30 minutes, stay for 10 minutes first, and then see how you feel afterwards (as you will still feel its effects).

Points to Note

Making the Epsom bath salt saltier than the ocean is the key to getting results mentioned above. A lot of people just add a very small amount in their baths, and don’t see much results as they would normally.

Other types of Baths 

There are other types of baths like sulphur baths – this are also very beneficial; but they are not easily accessible by people as not everyone lives near a sulphur spring – but if you ever go on holiday, or feel like treating yourself to a proper detox session, then a sulphur spring bath is the way to go – they are natural springs where hot water with sulphur comes out from the ground – these are beneficial for all skin and hair disorders.

Chemicals Everywhere – One Solution

Humans Part of Nature

When every single grain of soil is contaminated with arsenic, mercury and toxic chemicals from all kinds of pesticides – on top of that, we have genetically modified food and apparent chemtrails in the air – what does a human do to survive in this seemingly disgusting world? It can be depressing when you think of all these, and you don’t even want to take a bite out of your apple – when that same apple seems equivalent in how apparently bad it is for your body, just as the take away food down the street!

What is the solution to all this madness? Is there even a solution?

 

Yes there is a solution – but this is the wrong approach to understand it. Humans separate themselves from nature, thinking nature is one thing, and they are another – this is itself perfect thinking to create disease in the first place. You must understand, humans are not separate from nature. Once you understand that humans are not separate from nature, the next step is to understand, nature is not in trouble – no matter how many trees we destroy, or chemicals we release – nature is unaffected by all this and simply evolves to find a way to live and coexist with whatever is happening – that is what life is!

“Humans separate themselves from nature, thinking nature is one thing, and they are another – this is itself perfect thinking to create disease in the first place. You must understand, humans are not separate from nature….”

So what is the way forward from all this – what is the solution to the chemicals infecting our planet?

 

The solution is to coexist with our new environment – to understand, that this direction is part of the bigger picture, and to stop blaming the chemicals, the GMO foods and everything in-between – but instead, accept what has happened and what is continuing to happen, and ask, how do I coexist with these new changes that are taking place in my environment?

One good example is as follows: The chernobyl nuclear power plant accident that caused many to evacuate their homes – scientists said there won’t be any life there for millions of years, but only a few years later, a bacteria appeared that defused the radiation and spread it out, making radiation less dangerous, allowing plants to start growing and animals making a home there without any health problems.

A radioactive sign hangs on barbed wire outside a café in Pripyat.

The hiroshima nuclear blasts killed the entire city, scientists again said, no plants or animal life will be able to survive there for millions of years – although humans still suffer from it till this day, only a short while later, a plant totally resistant to radiation started thriving there in a very short time frame!

The same with oil spills in the ocean – animals surely died from them, but eventually, their bodies and immune systems upgrade, and they learnt to coexist with the chemicals in their environment. Every animal and plant life has been doing this for millions of years – some can call it evolution, some call it adaptation – but in simple human language “if it get’s cold, wear a jacket” kind of thing.

 

Does this mean I should eat GMO foods and go to places that are toxic for my body?

No, you have to find the balance which is right for your body and frame of mind – each and every individual is different and has their own unique physiology and system of balance. Do what you can, to live healthy (whatever healthy means to you) – but also constantly study about health – if you won’t, and accept whatever it is that you know, that is when you stop growing; which is fine if that is what you want.

 

How does one coexist with toxins, they will eventually kill you or make you sick, won’t they?

 

Anything from pure water to cooked food can be toxic if taken in large enough doses; but the words “large enough”, is greatly dependent on your immune system. Most people today have weak immune systems (for one reason or another) as they do not do enough things to keep strong – from simple and basic exercise, to mentally challenging exercises as well as the foods that are eaten, lastly but not least, their emotion management. Many people who do exercise and think they eat right – still does not guarantee a powerful immune system, as the attitude towards life is also vital to your DNA’s expression.

The thought processes in our body have a direct impact on our DNA, and our whole bodies – if you simply stressed for 30 minutes continuously about something, your body would have released stress hormones all over; this is just one of many things that happens when you get stressed (mentally), so imagine what it would do over a lifetime of stress? It is now understood that DNA is constantly changing – a study concluded that DNA expression can change significantly only after 6 months exercise – click here to read the original study conducted.

So imagine, if you consciously took part, with your mind and body – improved your exercise every day, ate the right kind of foods to help you grow, detoxed your body regularly and worked on emotion and thought management, how fast will your DNA expression change, and how fast will your immune system improve!?

DNA expression and Exercise

Of course this requires a lot of commitment and hard work – and it will be hard to fit this in when others may not understand – this is why we ask you to share this article with all your friends and family and all social media sites you are on, as it helps us spread this message. If you are ready to do this – here are the details:

Exercise – this is not the typical exercise regime we are talking about. You don’t take protein shakes either. Ideally you want to be doing exercises like Yoga or even better, Qigong (sometimes also pronounced Chi Gong) – but not just any Qigong or Yoga, it has to be the extreme kind – where you hold postures for 5 minutes or longer per posture done – this is what trains the tendons and ligaments of the body and expands the nervous system from the inside out.

Nutrition – An excellent balance of nutrition needs supplements – times have changed, plants and animals do not provide as much nutrition as they used to – this applies especially to people who are not in good health because they will need this to upgrade their bodies immune system. The most nutritious meal I have come across is bone soup, but remember to make it taste good to your own unique taste buds (it makes it more medicinal) – but this does not mean eating junk food is medicinal because it tastes great – there is a difference, one makes you feel lousy and sluggish after eating, one does not.

Emotion – This is a new concept to the western world, but emotional management comes from understanding situations better – or realizing that outward extreme expressions of emotions is draining to the endocrine system of the human body. A balance of emotions is a better word for this category, as all emotions help us, but too much of one, is going to imbalance the system. One way of doing this, is when a bad situation happens, realize that emotional reactions won’t solve it, better to stay grounded, and figure out a way around it – this avoids stress, and waste of hormones as well as keeps you healthy.

The above done in combination will help upgrade your system to be in tune with nature – what more do you want?

Learning to coexist with wherever nature is taking us, is the single most powerful method of enjoying life, staying healthy and living life to the full – accepting that we, humans, are part of nature too; just like bee’s who make a bee hive and collect honey, we also make our homes, and grow our food, it is nothing different – yes, too much of one thing, for example intensive farming, has accelerated the process of change, which is a problem only for humans because they have to adjust to it – for the rest of life on the planet, it already has adjusted!
