The Psychiatric Profession Is All About Generating Huge Profits.

The Psychiatric Profession Is All About Generating Huge Profits.

Sometimes we all encounter times of trouble in our lives and find a need to talk to someone such as a psychotherapist or psychiatrist, but you need to be careful.  During your visit you might feel that you’re sitting in the “hot seat” and after spilling out your problems at the end, you will make your payment.  If you intend to use your insurance, your process will have a few more steps that produce records for insurances companies that will follow you for the rest of your life. 

First the therapist will have to decide what’s wrong with you and assign a label or diagnosis on you in order to bill the insurance company based on whatever information you shared during the session.  In order to make the diagnosis, most all mental health workers consult a book called the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Psychiatric Disorders” known by its acronym as the “DSM.”  It is referred to as the “Bible of Psychiatry.”  Professionals not only use the DSM for insurance purposes but it is also a guide they use for making medication decisions and to understand and categorize patient symptoms.

Ever since the first publication in 1952 the “DSM” has gone through five major revisions.  Each new edition will have more new disorders and diagnosis’s that have been added, while the older disorders and diagnosis’s are routed out in order to keep increasing numbers of psychiatric conditions to the inventory.  This is done so that medication can be developed and administered for profits for the psychiatrist, psychologists, or health care worker’s employer, which sometimes includes school districts and of course let’s don’t forget pharmaceutical companies.

The first “DSM” in 1952, listed only 102 disorders.  At that time schizophrenia was lumped together with manic-depressive disorder under the heading of a “psychosis.” The new and latest edition of the “DSM -5” came out with over 300 disorders, including 15 brand new diagnoses.  I found when anyone looks through the book, they will find a diagnosis that fits their peculiar lifestyle.  What has actually happened is the group of doctors that get together to make up all the conditions and diagnosis in the “DSM” have taken everyday life issues that most people will encounter and respond to in a natural way and codified a myriad of conditions and diagnosis in order to justify their position and to make a large profit for themselves and pharmaceutical corporations.   It really makes me wonder how mankind ever survived before psychiatrists identified and codified this myriad of conditions and diagnosis.

If you or someone you may have known has a child for example, that has been diagnosed with “attention deficit hyperactivity disorder” or ADHD, the truth is that that child was probably actually just fine.  Dr. Leon Eisenberg, on his deathbed, a leading psychiatrist and autism pioneer, admitted that ADHD was essentially a “fictitious disease,” which means that millions and millions of young children even today are being needlessly prescribed severe, dangerous, mind-altering drugs that usually set them up for life of drug addiction, failure, and poor health.  Look it up on “Snoops.” 

Over 20 million American children today are taking dangerous, expensive, psychiatric drugs for made-up behavioral conditions like ADHD or ADD.  Also, there is about a million or so children that have been blatantly and admittedly misdiagnosed with phony behavioral conditions for which psychiatric medication are being prescribed.  I find it very interesting that the U.S. prescribes five times more Ritalin and Adderal to its children than the rest of the world combined.  Also, kids know that if you don’t have money to buy street drugs and you want good drugs, just act out or misbehave so you will be placed in a hospital or institution, or special education program in school where there you’ll get your own doctor that will give you the new and best mind-bending drugs available.  You wouldn’t believe how many thousands of children and teenagers that have told me this information in our sessions.  Is it any wonder why methamphetamines or speed are the drugs of choice with college student and athletes?

There are two ways drug companies can make money:  Invent new drugs, or reinvent new diseases already invented that drugs can treat.  When you look back in the past you can find that pharmaceutical corporations have created no less than 10 new novel drugs per year.  Just watch you TV commercials. People who have been diagnosis or told they suffer from ADHD or ADD actually suffer from a “bad design of consequences” by conventional social and educational systems that were unable and unwilling to recognize unique individuality and their behavior.

What do you thing about the new diagnosis of  “caffeine withdrawal” which include headaches, sleep problems, and mood swings.  How do you like “Disruptive mood deregulation disorder,” which is also known as “a brat with a temper tantrum?”  Do you like “Binge Eating Disorder” where you pig-out 12 times within a three month period.  I wonder if that includes while you’re on vacation for two weeks on a cruise?

How about “premenstrual dysphoric disorder,” or “PMDD,” for what women use to call, “that time of the month?”  It is the normal symptoms of PMS but the “New DMS-5” says this if far worse.  Symptoms include bloating, depression, despair, but when you say “I hate my partner and everyone else” instead of just being bitchy for a couple of day, now you have a full-blown psychiatric designation the I feel is very discriminating against women and a new way for pharmaceutical companies to recycle expensive, drugs with dangerous side-effects, including pain relievers, antidepressants, and other cancer causing medication.  Is “PMDD” really a different condition than PMS?  If it is, there is no real dividing line, and it’s a purely arbitrary diagnosis by the person making the diagnosis.

You can’t name psychiatric conditions with measurable indicators like something such as “diabetes,” where insulin levels can be determined or even cancer, where a tumor can be seen on an x-ray.  Most all of the labels in the “DSM-5” describe groups of symptoms that span a wide range that may or may not have physiological manifestations.  A diagnosis relies solely on the subjective judgment of the therapist, but as far as insurance companies go, a diagnosis is a sure thing, and again, a medication gets dispensed according to the diagnosis. 

I believe we need to stop making the mistakes that words don’t matter.  When you are defining a set of symptoms as a disease on any individual it matters!  It matters because that diagnosis is going to follow that individual for the rest of their life.  I have seen many clients who were mislabel or mis-diagnosis by psychiatrist, social workers and psychologist who were able to heal themselves by looking at their lifestyles and choices and making changing in their own life.   Many people go through different life experiences during their life time.  That shouldn’t qualify you to have a label stuck on you for the rest of your life if it is only a temporary situation.

If you feel you need therapy, make sure you stay in communication with your counselor about whet labels get assigned to you in your records, especially if you have concerns about that label following you around for the rest of your life.  Look for someone who is more neutral or find yourself an off-the- radar clinician who won’t label you at all.  You might even consider looking for a counselor that practices alternative holistic approaches first.

The final item I would suggest to you is watching the movie “The Marketing of Madness.”  It is the story of high-income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created over an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit center legally.  It is a three-part documentary exposing the truth behind the marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal a very dangerous and often deadly sales campaign.

Not Easy to Do Verses Easy To Do!

Not Easy To Do Verses Easy To Do!

I haven’t written a blog in quite a while because I’ve been reflecting and focused in making new changes in my own life in order to make the quality of my lifestyle a little better as I turn 63 tomorrow.

In looking back on the thousands of clients I’ve worked with over many years of my life, and my own personal experiences I’ve recognized a few things that I want to share.  I have worked with many people who have all kinds of issues of illnesses, low self worth or self esteem, depressions, phobias, and insecurities throughout different times of their life.  Many clients turned to food, alcohol, or drugs for relief which eventuality created many other problems in their health, relationships, work, or personal life. 

There are countless clients who I’ve worked with that sought other professional help to only experience a fifty minute session with a counselor, psychologist, or psychiatrist, then prescribed medication to treat a symptom and sent home to wait a week or two before returning.  When this type of treatment is done and continued very long the person becomes dependent on the prescriptions or medication with their many harmful side effects that they will likely take for the rest of their lives.  These clients also get a label that will follow them for the rest of their lives because this is the way our current medical system works.  In other words they do not get the cure in which they were looking for, only the symptoms is treated not the real problem that is causing the symptoms.  This really saddens me because I know of many other alternative low cost, healthy ways to really deal with people’s issues and help them overcome their difficulties.  Our society has bought into the “chemical imbalance of the brain” which usually is a nutritional or lack of exercise imbalance that is causing the “chemical imbalance” that our body, mind, and spirit is responding to.  I believe most mental health issues are direct result of our eating habits of chemical processed foods and lack of exercise.

Have you ever wondered why 95% of the people in the world live in fear of failure, and will not take responsibility, wanting someone else to take care of most things for them?  They will set around and talk about all the negative things going on in their lives and yet when you listen they have no desire to take action to get involved in order to make changes that will benefit them.  Yet there are about 5% of the people who will take on almost any challenge and see it as an opportunity to make their life better, and even if they fail at what they are attempting, they are grateful for the leanings and experiences.  Most successful people have more failures than successes.  Success will not just happen out of the blue, unless you get an inheritance or win a lottery.  Most famous people that I’ve known apply long, hard, and continuous hours of practice in order to get great at what their famous for.

Have you ever wonder what makes the difference between these two types of people?

Are you aware that the average person hears the word “No” by the time they reach the first grade over 40,000 times?  While the average person only hears the word “Yes” only 5,000 times by the time they hit the first grade.  What impact is put into anyone’s mind by hearing 40,000 no’s verses 5,000 yes’s by the time they are 5 or 6 years old.  The word “no” is 8 times the force of holding people down; compared to the 1 force of “yes” that lifts you up.  How has “no” affected yourself worth or self esteem and philosophies, attitudes, actions, and results for your life in all areas of your life, including your relationships, personal development, business, health, and finances?

It is my belief, experience and observations that most people sit around waiting for something to happen to make their life better.  They have dreams and goals of having the right jobs, careers homes, health, or relationships in order to be happy and proud of their self, but the 95% of our population do what is easy not to do, which is nothing.  They sit around blaming others or feel neglected and think they are entitled to be successful without putting energy or effort into what they want in life. 

 I’ve watch the other 5% of our population that have a philosophy of responsibility that gives them self discipline to become value driven to create their own success.

There is tons of information all around us in books, and on the internet on how to succeed at anything you desire for your life. So why aren’t more people succeeding?   I believe everyone has the same opportunity to be as successful in any area of their life as they really want to be.  But the answer to my question is “It is easy to do, but it is easier not to do” and that the problem difference between the 95% of people that are not successful at what they really want and the other 5% who create their own success for themselves.

In my own personal life I have experience what seemed to be comfortable and easy for me in my life became more uncomfortable for me later on.   Taking an easier softer way doesn’t help you grow and expand.  If I made that choice, there wasn’t much that was challenging to teach me new information and how to solve problems to give myself strength, knowledge, courage and wisdom.  However; whatever has been uncomfortable for me at first seems to become more comfortable later on in my life.  Why?  When you first learn something new that is challenging, when you meet the challenge or solve the issue you build yourself worth and self esteem.  You conquer your fears and it helps motivate you to go forward in life with a feeling of power.  When you don’t meet a challenge, and everything is given to you or done for you it destroys a part of yourself worth and self esteem.  So you become programmed and believe it’s better to do nothing, than to do something and risk failure.  This is related to the entire past of our life of all the “No’s you can’t do that;” verses “Yes you can, or that’s a great job, or thought, go ahead and give it your best energy to make it happen.”  What would our world be like if every parent would respond more in the “yes” way with their children?

Every day we make choices over everything that we do as well as well as everything we don’t do.  Over time, like compound intrest by the end of our life most people look back on situations and opportunities they could have, but for whatever reason they found it easier to do nothing, than to do something as they went along each day.  By doing nothing, they were actually building compounding negative interest or energy, rather than to do something, like building compounding positive interest or energy, to achieve their dreams or goals.  Perhaps this is why you find a lot of elderly people dissatisfied with life, grumpy, and negative because their angry at themselves for what they didn’t do when their opportunities occurred.  But the other 5% that waked through their challenges, fears, depressions, losses, failures with their positive philosophies, attitudes and actions knew they were growing and learning that kept them motivated with their faith to continue to go on to get to their dreams and goals.

As many of you know I became a vegetarian after many years of being a meat and potatoes type person and eating the “All American Diet” of fast foods and poorly processed foods.  At the time I didn’t think I was harming my body or mind until I had a brain aneurysm that should of kill me.  I was very fortunate to not to have been left blind and paralyzed for the rest of my life.  After the aneurysm I started to change my eating habits and exercising.  I began exploring how my eating meat was contributing to animal cruelty, and having a very negative impact on our planet, because of the way cattle are raised today and my health. 

It’s hard to give up old habits, if you focus on the negative side of things verse looking at all the positive side of things.  This is why all fad diets fail.  Diets don’t work because it is easier to eat fast foods, snacks and junk foods, and harder to make time to cook and eat healthy foods that are good for you. 

I could eat a hamburger and drink a soft drink today and it won’t kill me or hurt me.  But if I continue to eat that type of food most of the time, along with the sugary soft drinks, and GMO’s over a long period of time I would eventually discover that I made a poor decision for myself.   Later in life when a doctor could be cutting out or burning cancer from inside of  me, or telling me that I have diabetes, or I better lose 50 pounds or die cause your heart is bad, I would wonder why didn’t I take better care of myself? 

That is exactly what happened when I had my aneurysm and seizure disorders.  All my long time poor choices caught up with me.  It has been over 6 years since my last seizure because of how I change my lifestyle, eating habits and what I allow to go inside my body.  I continue to exercise every few days and even notice my depressions improved right after I cut out all meat, and became a vegetarian.  Yes, uncomfortable and hard to do early, but has become very comfortable and easy for me later.

The path we walk in life is determined by every single choice at every moment we make or don’t make for ourselves.  Are you happy where you are with your life?  Are you happy in every area of your lifestyle?  Are you satisfied with your health, personal development, relationships, business, school, or finances?  Are you in the 5% or 95%?  Do you want to change something but not sure how, or are you afraid of failure?  You don’t have to wait and become sick and tired of being sick and tired.  The only different between a grave and a rut is its depth.  Where are you at?

The 95% of most people will respond to the above questions with I’ll start tomorrow, or some other day, maybe after Christmas or New Years.  But the reality is “now is all you have, and what action are you taking now to make your life better?” 

Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do.  They refuse to let themselves to be swayed by the other 95%.  The 5% are ruled by their philosophies and do what it takes whether they feel like it or not. 

I believe you can achieve your dreams and goals; sometimes we need a guide to get us there.  I hope you allow me to become that guide for you.  If you have any questions or concerns contact me.  Until next time, I wish you great health, wealth, and happiness.

Questions & Answers Regarding Liver and Gallbladder Detoxing – Part 3

Questions & Answers Regarding Liver & Gallbladder Flush – Part 3

Since the previous articles I wrote regarding the liver and gallbladder flush I have received a few questions that I’ll answer the best way I can.  By the way, I mention I was doing the flush last weekend and it was very successful.  It was my 11th liver and gallbladder detox since September of 2011.  Each time I do a flush I have so much more energy and feel very healthy.  I passed about 50 stones this time around, the lease amount since I started.  I suspect I’ll be doing two or three more flushes to make sure that I’m totally clean of stones then I’ll do a maintenance flush about every six or eight months afterwards. 

You can bet your life I’ll be using the other articles that I’ve written about, fasting, intestinal cleansing, and liver and gallbladder cleansing, eating vegetarian and exercising that I’ve described in the past to stay healthy.   If you have missed any you can find them on my web site at www.phoenixtransformational.com under Blog on the Home page. 

It feels great when I go for my annual physical checkups and having a medical doctor say you have the body of a 27 year old man when I’m actually 62.  I’ve proved to myself, that taking the time to take care of yourself by not eating process foods, fast foods, and junk foods, that you can heal yourself of any ailments whether physical, mental or emotional.  At least that has been my own personal experiences and many observations that I’ve seen that happened to many others I’ve worked with.  Now let’s get to some questions.

The first question I’ve been asked “What if you have intolerance to apple juice?” Cranberry juice will work because it contains malic acid and can be used instead of apple juice.  The malic acid in apple juice or cranberry juice works on dissolving some of the stagnant bile and making the stones softer for passing.

Second question, “What if you are allergic to Epson Salts?”  You might want to look into using magnesium citrate instead.  Magnesium citrate is available at most drugstores, but not quite as effective as Epsom salts in my opinion.

Third question, “What if you have intolerance to Olive Oil?”  You might want to use macadamia oil, grape seed oil, sunflower oil or any other expeller-pressed or cold pressed oil.  Do not use canola, soy oil or other similar processed oils.  I find extra virgin olive oil to be the most effective oil for liver and gallbladder cleansing.

Fourth question, “What if you suffer from gallbladder disease or don’t have a gallbladder?”  If your gallbladder has been removed, you may need to consider taking a bile supplement.  Most bile supplements contain ox bile.  People who no longer have a gallbladder will never again obtain the right amount of bile needed for the proper digestion of food; this is why keeping your gallbladder is really important.  Most doctors act like removing your gallbladder is nothing, but producing the right amount of bile is very important for digestion and breaking down toxins.  If you develop symptom of diarrhea, with a bile supplement, lower the dosage or discontinue it.  Consult with your health care practitioner about which product may be the most suitable for you.

Fifth question, “What if you have diabetes, hypoglycemia, yeast infection (Candida) or, cancer or stomach ulcers?”  You can replace the apple or cranberry juice with malic acid in a powered form.  Avoid malic acid capsules, because usually they contain other ingredients.  Properly dissolve the malic acid is best.  The preparation period is the same as for the apple juice regimen, except that ½ to 1 teaspoon of malic acid, should be taken with 32 ounces of room-temperature water or more if it tastes too acidic for you, substituted for 32 ounces of apple juice per day.  Drink this solution in very small amounts throughout the day.  The food-grade malic acid power that is not mixed with magnesium or other ingredients is very inexpensive and can be purchased over the internet or from natural health food stores.  Most wineries use malic acid to produce wine.

Cranberry juice as mention earlier contains much malic acid and can be used for the preparation period.  You can drink 4 ounces of juice, mixed with 4 ounces of water, four times per day for six days.  You can also combine it with apple juice if desired.  Another alternative is using apple cider vinegar; mix 1 to 2 tablespoons in a glass of water and drink four servings per day, for six days.

Sixth question, “What if I experienced headaches or nausea after I’ve done the flush?”  I’ve believe that if either occurs, someone did not follow the suggestions carefully.  On some rare occasions, gallstones may continue to pass out of the liver after completing a flush.  Sometimes toxins released by these stones can enter the circulatory system and cause some discomfort.  In such a case, you might find it helpful to drink about 4 ounces of apple juice for 7 consecutive days, or as long as the discomfort lasts, following the flush.  In addition, repeat the colon cleansing, because there may be some late-coming stones inside that need flushing out.  Drink two or three cups of chamomile tea per day will also help to calm the digestive tract and nervous system.  Chamomile is also a good “stone-breaker” of calcified stones.

Sixth question, “What if I start feeling sick during the flush?”  I believe if you’ve followed all the suggestions in the procedure, you won’t feel sick during the flush.  However; for some people due to the extreme amounts of toxins in their system may feel nauseated during the night.  Do not feel alarmed that something is wrong.  If you vomit or feel nauseated during the night, it’s probably because your gallbladder ejects bile and gallstones with such force that the bile forces the oil back into the stomach.  When the oil, combines with some bile and returns to the stomach, you are likely to feel nausea.  There may be a sharp pain or a mild contraction as some stones are expelled.  So far in my 11 flushes I’ve only had one night of feeling nausea.  I sat up a little higher on a pillow and the nausea passed very quickly.  I’ve never vomited.  Remember this is only one night of maybe experiencing a small amount of discomfort.  If you go through conventional gallbladder surgery, it takes many weeks or months to heal.  Surgery may also lead to major pain and suffering in the years to come.

Seventh question, “What if the Flush does not give me the results I was expecting?”  I believe there are only two reasons for such a situation.  The first, is it’s likely that your liver’s bile ducts are severely congested and has some extremely dense structures of stones that have prevented the apple juice from softening them sufficiently during your first attempt at cleansing with the flush.  It may take two or three more flushes before the stones start coming out.  In addition, drink three tablespoons of undiluted, unsweetened organic fresh squeezed lemon juice 15 to 30 minutes before breakfast daily for one week before your next flush.  Sometimes this stimulates the gallbladder and makes it ready for a more successful liver flush.  The second reason is you may not have followed the suggestions properly.  Leaving out any one item from the suggestions or altering the dosages or timing of the steps laid out, may prevent you from obtaining the full results.  Also, you must make sure that the large intestine has been cleaned out first.  The backup of waste or gases cuts down on the adequate bile secretion and prevents the oil mixture from moving easily through the digestive tract.  The best time for a colonic irrigation or alternative colon cleans is the day before or the day of the actual liver flush.

At this point and time this has been all the questions I’ve received that need a little clarification regarding the liver and gallbladder detox.  If you have any further questions or comments please feel free to contact me.  Until next time, I wish you great health, wealth and happiness.

Detoxing the Liver & Gallbladder – Part 2

Detoxing the Liver & Gallbladder – Part 2

The Actual Flush – Once again I’m sharing this information with you because this is what helps me stay healthy and away form doctors, drugs, and operations.  I also work with many people whose health is out of balance and assist them in getting their life back in balance.  I’m making no claims that this is what you should do.  I’m not a doctor or physician and if you decide to follow any of the information I’m sharing you are on your own. 

The Actual Flush is done in the evening starting at 6:00 p.m.:  Add four tablespoons of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) to a total of 24 ounces (three 8 oz glasses) filtered water in a jar.  This makes four 6-oz servings.  Drink you first portion (3/4 glass or 6 oz.) now.  You may take a few sips of water afterward to neutralize the bitter taste in the mouth, or add a little lemon juice to improve the taste.  Some people drink it through a plastic straw to bypass the taste buds on the tongue.  Closing the nostrils while drinking it works well for most people.  It is also helpful to brush your teeth or rinse out your mouth with baking soda.  The main action of the Epsom salt is to dilate (widen) the bile ducts in the liver, making it easy for the stones to pass.  The salts clear out any waste that may obstruct the release of the stones.  (If allergic to Epsom salts or just can’t get them down, you may use instead the second best choice – magnesium citrate, at the same dosage).  Set out the citrus fruit you will be using later, so that it can warm to room temperature.

8:00 p.m.:  Drink your second serving (3/4 glass or 6 oz.) of Epsom salts.

9:00 p.m.:  If you have not had a bowel movement until now and have not done a colon cleanse within the past 24 hours, take a water enema; this will trigger a series of bowel movements.

9:45 p.m.:  Thoroughly wash the grapefruits (or lemons and oranges).  Squeeze them by hand and remove the pulp.  You will need ¾ glass or 6 oz. of juice.  Pour the juice and ½ glass or 4 oz. of olive oil into the pint jar.  Close the jar tightly and shake hard, about 20 times or until the solution becomes watery.  Ideally, you should drink this mixture at 10:00 p.m., but if you feel you still need to visit the toilet a few more times, you may delay this step for up to 10 minutes.

10:00 p.m.: Stand next to your bed (do not sit down) and drink the olive oil and juice concoction, if possible, without interruption.  Some people prefer to drink it through a large plastic straw.  Drinking it while keeping the nostrils closed seems to work best.  If necessary, use a little honey between sips, which helps the mixture go down more smoothly.  Most people, hove no problem drinking it in one go.  Do not take more than five minutes for this (only elderly or weak people may take longer).

Please Lie Down Immediately!  This is essential for helping to release the gallstones!  Turn off all lights and lie flat on your back with one or two pillows propping your head up.  Your head should be higher than your abdomen.  If this is uncomfortable, lie on your right side with your knees pulled towards you head.  Lie perfectly still for at least 20 minutes, and try not to speak or talk!  Put your attention on your liver.  Some people find it beneficial to place a castor oil pack over the liver area.

You may feel the stones traveling along the bile ducts like marbles.  There won’t be any spasms or pain because the magnesium in the Epsom salts keeps the bile duct valves wide open and relaxed, and the bile that is excreted along with the stones keeps the bile ducts well lubricated.  (This is very different than in the case of a gallstone attack where magnesium and bile are not present.)  Go to sleep if you can, I usually have no problems falling right to sleep.

If at any time during the night you feel the urge to have a bowel movement, go do so.  Check if there are already many small gallstones (from pea-green or tan-colored ones) floating in the toilet.  There were a few times I did feel a little nauseated during the night or early morning hours.  When this occurred I found it was mostly due to a strong, sudden outpouring of gallstones and toxins from my liver and gallbladder, or I was laying flat and gravity was pushing the oil mixture back into my stomach.  The nausea will usually pass quickly if you sit up slightly in bed.

The Following Morning, 6:00 – 6:30 a.m.:  Upon awakening but not before 6:00 a.m., drink your ¾ glass or 6 oz. of Epson salts.  If you feel very thirsty, drink a glass of warm water, before taking the salts.  Rest, read or meditate.  If you are still sleepy, go back to bed, although I find it best if the body stays in an upright position.  I feel fine usually, to do some light exercises, something like yoga or stretching. 

8:00 – 8:30 a.m.:  Drink your fourth and last 3/4/glass of Epsom salts.

10:00 – 10:30 a.m.:  I start drinking freshly pressed fruit juice at this time.  One half-hour later, I find I can eat one or two pieces of fresh fruit.  About an hour later I can eat regular (but light) foods.  By evening or the next morning I’m back to normal and feel the first signs of great improvements in clarity, alertness, and energy.  I usually continue to eat light meals during the following two or three days.  You need to remember, your liver and gall bladder have undergone major “surgery” without the harmful side effects or expense of the standard medical treatments.

Note: Drink water whenever you feel hungry or thirsty, except right after drinking the Epsom salts and for the first two hours after drinking the oil and great fruit mixture.

Results You Can Expect:  During the morning and afternoon hours following the liver flush, you will have a number of watery bowel movements.  These will consist of gallstones mixed with food residue, and then just stones mixed with water.  The gallstones are pea-green and float in the toilet because they contain bile compounds.  The stones will be in different shades of green and may be bright colored and shiny like gemstones.  Only bile from the liver can cause this green color.  The stones come in many sizes, shapes and colors.  The light colored stones are the most recent.  The dark-green stones are the oldest.  Some will be pea-sized or smaller, but I’ve have passed big one up to ½ to ¾ of an inch in diameter and not feel them pass.  There have been dozens and sometimes even hundreds of stones of different sizes and colors coming out all at once.

Look for the tan-colored and white stones.  These may sink to the bottom with the stool.  These are calcified gallstones that have been released from the gallbladder.  They contain heavier toxic substances, containing small amounts of cholesterol.  All green and yellowish stones are soft as putty, thanks to the action of the apple juice.  You can use a small fish net for aquariums to look around your stones and separate the stool.  You may even fine a layer of white or tan colored chaff or “foam floating in the toilet.  The foam consists of millions of tiny white, sharp-edged cholesterol crystals, which can easily rupture small bile ducts and are important to release.  Try to get a rough estimate of how many stones you have eliminated. 

To permanently cure bursitis, back pain, allergies and other health issues, and prevent other diseases from arising, you need to remove all the stones.  As I mention I’m on my 11th flush.  You may require at least 8 to 12 flushes, which can be performed at three-week or monthly intervals.  (Do not flush more frequently than that!)  The three-week break between flushes may include the six-day preparation for the next liver flush; I usually start after the three weeks have passed.  If you can’t flush this often, take more time between flushes.

Remember that once you have started cleansing the liver, you should keep cleansing it until no more stones are coming out during two consecutive flushes.  Leaving the liver half clean for long time (three or more months) may cause greater discomfort and harm than not cleaning it at all.  The liver will function more efficiently just after the first flush.  I noticed great improvements within several hours of my first flush and each one I’ve done after that.  I’ve notice body aches and pains lessen, energy increases, and my mind seem clearer and seem too improved considerably.

I know within a few days after flushing, in my early flushes other stones from the rear of the liver can traveled “forward” toward the two main bile ducts (hepatic ducts) and can cause some or all of the previous symptoms of discomfort to return.  Don’t be disappointed because the recovery from some of your illnesses seems so short-lived.   This means is that some stones were left behind, and are getting ready to be removed with the next flush.  You’ll see for yourself that the liver’s self repaired and cleansing responses will have increased significantly, adding a great amount of effectiveness to this extremely important organ of the body.

If after two consecutive flushes and you no longer are producing any stones, usually after 6 to 8 flushes, (in severe cases you may be looking at 12 or more flushes) before your liver is consider “stone-free.”

Repeat the liver flush every six to eight month.  Each flush will give a further boost to the liver and take care of any toxins or new stones that may have accumulated in the mean time.

Caution:  Never cleanse when you are suffering an acute illness, even if it is just a simple cold.  If you suffer from a chronic illness, however, cleansing your liver may be the best thing you can do for yourself.  However, don’t attempt to flush if you are using prescribed medications, such as antibiotics, steroids, painkillers, statins or other suppressive drugs.  The liver cannot both break down/release these drugs and suppress this activity (which drugs do) at the same time.  It is best to wait with liver flushing until drug intake has been discontinued for at least 10 days.

Important Please Read Carefully: The liver flush is the most invaluable methods to regain your health.  If you follow my suggestions to the letter, there are no risks involved.  Take this precautionary note very seriously.  There are many people who have used a liver flush recipe that they received from a friend or through the Internet, and they suffered unnecessary complications.  They did not have complete knowledge of the procedure and the way it works, believing that just expelling the stones from the liver and gallbladder was sufficient just the first time, it’s not, you want at least two consecutive flushes with no stones at all, for your liver and gallbladder to be considered cleaned.

It is likely that, on their way out, some gallstones will be caught in the colon.  They can quickly be removed through colonic or enema’s irrigation.  This should ideally be done on the second or third day after the liver flush.  If gallstones remain in the colon, they can cause irritation, infection, headaches, abdominal discomfort, thyroid problems, and so on.  These stones can eventually become a source of toxemia in the body.  If colonics are not available where you live, you can take a coffee enema, followed by a water enema, or else, do two or three consecutive water enemas.  Still, this may not guarantee that all the remaining stones will be removed.  If you mix one level teaspoon of Epsom salts with one glass of warm water and drink it first thing in the morning on the day of any other chosen colon cleanse following the liver flush that will usually do the trick and remove all the stones. 

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.  Until next time I wish you great health, wealth and happiness.

Detoxing the Liver and Gallbladder – Part 1

Detoxing the Liver and Gallbladder – Part 1

I hope by now you have done a few intestinal cleanings, (see articles Detoxing the Body’s Detoxification Systems Part 1 & 2) and noticed the benefits of feeling better since my last writings.  I’m sharing this information with you because this is what helps me stay healthy and away for doctors, drugs, and operations.  I also work with many people whose health is out of balance and assist them in getting their life back in balance.  I’m making no claims that this is what you should do.  I’m not a doctor or physician and if you decide to follow any of the information I’m sharing you are on your own. 

Today I want to share with you one of the best Liver and Gallbladder detoxing I’ve found and I use because it works so well and it’s inexpensive.  There is a lot of hype and products claiming to clean out your liver that are available on the open market that are expensive and do not work all that well, so buyer beware.  Please do your research before doing a liver & gallbladder cleaning or flush.  Know what risk are involved, and use caution.  I only use natural organic produces for my liver and gallbladder cleanses and they are not very expensive to use. 

The liver is your largest gland/organ in your body and it’s the main filter for your body’s blood system.  It can weigh up to three pounds and filters more than one quart of blood each minute.  It’s been detoxing your blood from all the toxins you’ve ingested through all the foods you’ve ever eaten, all the air you ever breath, and all the products you’ve drank or used since you were conceived.  The liver detoxifies noxious substances, bacteria, parasites, and pharmaceutical drugs, alcohol and uses specific enzymes to convert waste or poisons into substances that can be safely removed from the body.  What I’m saying you just can’t do one liver and gallbladder flush and be done with it.  It’s taken years to become toxic with stones from all the processed foods we eat, and it takes months to clean it out. 

Many people believe gallstones can only be produced and found in the gallbladder.  Most gallstones are actually formed in the liver.  More than 20% of the world’s population will develop gallstones in their gallbladder at some stage of their life.  Many will opt for surgical removal of this important organ, and many more people don’t even realize that they already have gallstones that have formed in their liver.  I’ve had clients who had their gallbladder removed and believed they were stone free until they did their first liver flush that I’m sharing with you.  Most people are very surprised to see hundreds of green, beige-color, brown or black gallstones floating in the toilet during their first liver flush, you will know that you’re on to doing something extremely important in your life by doing a liver and gallbladder flush. 

By the way tonight I’m doing my 11th liver and gallbladder detox.  I’ve been doing this flush and detox about every 3 weeks since September 1st of 2011.  If you decide to detox your liver and gallbladder you will find it is one of the most powerful and important approaches you can ever take to improve your health.

Why do a liver and gallbladder detox?  Almost every illness is either directly or indirectly caused by congestion of the liver bile ducts and gallbladder.  Toxic bile is the source of most digestive issues.  Congested bile ducts in the liver can turn harmless chemicals into cancer-causing substances an scatter them throughout the entire body.  The liver is responsible for mental clarity and emotional stability.  This is why I believe most mental health issues are caused by the food you eat or drink.  A poorly functioning liver can block 70% of the blood flow to your heart.  The liver can spill proteins into the lymphatic system, setting off a myriad of immune system reactions causing allergies, to any type of autoimmune diseases, or from colds to cancers.  Liver enzymes can turn the body’s own steroid hormones into either beneficial or deadly hormones.  The latter can give a person cancer of the reproductive organs.

How do I detox my liver?  The liver flush I do requires six days of preparation; follow by 16 to 20 hours of actual cleansing.  Here is how it’s done and what you will need to do it.

First; you’ll need Apple Juice – Six – 32 oz containers of it.

Second; you’ll need Epson Salts (or Magnesium citrate) Four tablespoons dissolved in three 8 oz., glasses of water.  Epson salts (magnesium sulfate), is usually found in the laxatives section of drugstores.

Third; Either fresh grapefruit (pink is the best), or fresh lemon and oranges combined.  Have enough great fruits to squeeze 3/4/glass or (6 oz.,) of juice.  If you can’t tolerate grapefruit juice, you can use equal amounts of freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice instead.  The effect is the same with either choice.  Do not use commercial or concentrate juices, use organic fresh squeezed fruits.

Fourth; Two pint jars, one with a lid.

Preparation:  I drink 1 container (32 oz.) of freshly prepared organic apple juice per day for a period of six days.  (You may drink more than that if it feels comfortable to do so.)  The malic acid in the apple juice softens the gallstones and makes their passage through the bile ducts smoothly and easily.  Apple juice has a strong cleansing effect.  Sometimes a few people will experience bloating or diarrhea during the first few days of drinking it.  Much of the diarrhea is stagnant bile, released by the liver and gallbladder; it will be a brownish yellow color.  The fermenting effect of the juice will widen and expand the bile ducts inside the liver.  If you experience becomes uncomfortable, you can dilute the apple juice with any amount of water, or use other option I’ll describe later.  Drink the apple juice slowly throughout the day, between meals (avoid drinking the juice during, just before, and the first two hours after a meal, or in the evenings).  This is also in addition to your normal water intake of eight to twelve glasses of water a day. 

Note: I recommend staying from drinking commercial apple juices, apple concentrates or apple cider, even though I’ve heard they work, but not as well as pure organic apple juices.  You may want to rinse you mouth out with baking soda/or brush your teeth several times per day to prevent the acid from damaging your teeth.  (If you are intolerant of apple juice or allergic to it, I’ll write about other options a little later).

Dietary Recommendations:  During the entire week of preparation & cleansing, avoid foods or beverages that are cold or chilled: they chill the liver and reduce the effectiveness of the cleansing.  All your foods or beverages should be warm or at least room temperature.  Avoid foods from animal sources, dairy products, and fried foods items.  Eat normal meals, and avoid overeating.

Best times for cleansing:  The main and final part of the liver flush is best done over a weekend, when you are not under any pressure and have time to rest.  It should coincide with a day between the full moon and new moon.  I avoid doing the actual flush on a full moon days, because the body tens to hold more fluids in the brain and tissues on these days more than other days.  The day of the new moon is the best for cleansing and healing.

If you take any medication: I suggest you avoid taking any vitamins, or supplements that are not absolutely necessary.  If taking medications only do so if absolutely necessary.  It is important not to give the liver any extra work that can interfere with its cleansing efforts.  I believe it’s better to attempt cleaning the liver & gallbladder than no cleaning at all, so if you take medications do the best you can or discuss it with your doctor.

Make sure that you cleanse your colon before and after you do a liver flush:  Having regular bowel movements is not an indication that your bowels are unobstructed.  Colon cleansing, done either a few days before or, ideally, on the sixth day of preparation helps to avoid and minimize any discomfort or nausea that may arise during the actual liver flush.  It prevents back-flushing of the oil mixture or waste products from the intestinal tract into the stomach.  It assists your body to swiftly eliminate the gallstones.  A colonic is the fastest and easiest method to prepare the colon for a liver flush, but enemas will work just as well.  (See Detoxing the Body’s Detoxification System – Parts 1 & 2)

What to do on the sixth day of drinking apple juice: Drink all the 32 ounces of apple juice in the morning.  Drink it soon after awakening.  If you feel hungry in the morning, eat a very light breakfast, warm cereal such as oatmeal is ideal.  Avoid sugar, other sweeteners, spices, milk, butter, oils, yogurt, cheese, ham, eggs, nuts, pastries, cold cereals.  Fruit or natural fruit juices are fine.  For lunch eat plain cooked or steamed vegetables with white rice (preferably basmati rice) flavor with unrefined sea or rock salt.  I really want to repeat, do not eat any protein foods, butter, or oil, because it might make you feel ill during the actual flush.  Do not eat or drink anything (except water) after 1:30 pm, otherwise you may have difficulties passing stones!  Now follow the exact schedule in my next article for the Actual Flush.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me.  Until next time, I wish you great health, wealth and happiness.

Essential Oils Are Great For You.

Essential Oil Are Great For You.

For many years, I have used Aroma Therapy in my personal life and my professional life as a counselor with many different types and brands of Essential Oils.  I’ve used essential oil to assist my clients to release stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, and many other health issues instead of using medications or drugs.  If you want to know how the oils I use work just watch the video below and see for yourself the benefits I’m talking about, just follow this link to:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klBwEBWa4Zo.

I’ve discovered today you can walk into many department stores and buy essential oils over the counter.  I’ve also discovered that many of that type of oils that are sold are not true essential oil, and many are of very poor quality and very cheap and even contain toxic chemicals.

The best essential oil are the volatile liquid that are distilled from plants using their seeds, barks, leaves roots, stems flowers, and fruits.  The main factor that determines the purity and therapeutic value of oil is its chemical constituents.  Constituents can be affected by many variables such as parts of the plant the oil was produce from, to soil condition, fertilizer, climate, altitude harvest season and methods, and distillation process to name a few.

Most cheep brands of essential oils should not be used, and if you have some I would recommend you throw them away.  The old saying “You get what you pay for,” really applies to the true and natural essential oils.  Many cheep oils have “fillers” or chemicals added to them to make them smell like perfume, but they’re not true essential oils.  Only “Certified Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils” are the essential oils I use because they’re the best on the planet.

“Certified Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils” have immune-strengthening properties from plants.  They quickly penetrate the skin and are soluble which means they penetrate cell walls, and affect every cell in the body within about 20 minutes of using them. 

Essential oils are very powerful antioxidants and clear out free radicals, while preventing oxidation within the cells themselves.  Essential oils are also anti-bacterial, anti-cancer, anti-fungal, anti-infectious anti-microbial anti-tumor anti-parasitic, anti-viral and anti-septic.  They can destroy most bacteria and viruses while simultaneously restoring balance to the body, mind, and spirit. 

Essential oils can assist in detoxifying the cells and blood in the body, so you can stay healthier longer without getting colds, flues and other sicknesses, then having to depend upon doctors for medications.

The essential oils of “Certified Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils” that contain sesquiterpenes have the ability to pass the blood-brain barrier, enabling them to be effective in treating Alzheimer’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis.

When you diffuse “Certified Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils” they will purifies the air by removing metallic particles and toxins from the air.  They increase the atmospheric oxygen, by increasing ozone and negative ions in the area which inhibits bacterial growth.  These oils also destroy mold, cigarettes, and animal odors without harming you or the environment.  They fill the air with a fresh aromatic sent just like you saw in the video above if you watched it. 

To some things up “Certified Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils” promote emotional, physical, and spiritual healing.  You may be wondering which oil I use, and I will tell you.  If you would like more information please go to my website at http://mydoterra.com/marvin, there you’ll find a lot of information about Essential Oils and other products that you can order.  You can order them from my site at retail and if you’re interested in wholesale or starting your own business, feel free to contact me at www.phoenixtransformational.com.

As always you’re welcome to express your thoughts and comments, or if you have any questions I’ll be more than happy to answer them. Meanwhile I wish you great health, wealth, and happiness.

Detoxing The Body’s Detoxification System – Part 2

Detoxing The Body’s Detoxification System – Part 2

In my last article I wrote about Colonic Irrigation and the Sea Salt Flush as two means of cleaning out your colon.  I want to express again that Intestinal Cleaning is the first step in detoxing, and most medical issues are caused and exacerbated by a buildup of toxic waste material that first accumulates in our intestines and then spreads to other parts of our body.  Keeping your colon clean will help keep you healthy by removing toxins and preventing sickness and diseases.  I’m sharing this information with you because this is what helps me stay healthy and away for doctors, medications, drugs, and operations.  I also work with many people whose health is out of balance and assist them in getting their life back in balance.  I’m making no claims that this is what you should do.  I’m not a doctor or physician and if you decide to follow any of the information I’m sharing you are on your own. 

I want to share with you a few more treatments I’ve done and experienced.  The Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate) treatment works very well for severe constipation, difficulty absorbing food, and kidney/bladder congestion or unable to have a colonic.  For one week, mix one teaspoon of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) with an 8 oz glass of warm water and drink first thing in the morning.  This will flush your entire digestive tract and colon within an hour by eliminating several times.  Your stools will be watery for as long as the intestinal waste is being disposed of.  You can do this treatment twice a year.  You can expect gas; bloating and mild cramping and your tongue may become covered white and thicker than normal, which indicates increased intestinal cleansing. If you know you can’t tolerate Epsom salts you can use Magnesium Citrate or similar methods instead.  Don’t use Epson Salt (magnesium sulfate) if you have abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting, unless directed by a doctor.  Some physicians seem concerned about Epson Salt may increase your blood pressure or be harmful to your kidneys, so use caution if you decide to use this method.

When I was a young boy, Castor oil was traditionally used to clear waste material from the intestines which still works when you’re an adult.  It is less irritating than Epson salts and has no side effects.  Take one to three teaspoons of castor oil in 1/3 glass of warm water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning or before going to sleep at night (it depends on which works best for you).  This product is great for constipation.  I also would not normally use this if I am doing a liver and gallbladder cleanse unless I had an allergy to the Epsom salts or magnesium citrate, then castor oil could be used as a substitute.

Enema treatments involve introduction of liquids into the rectum for the purpose of cleansing and nourishment of the colon.  Enemas alleviate constipation, distension, chronic fever, common cold, headache, sexual disorders, kidney stones, vomiting, low backache, stiffness or pain in neck, back and shoulders, hyperacidity and fatigued to only mention a few of its benefits. 

There are Four Types of Enema’s you can choose to do.  First is the oil enema.  This is done by taking a ½ cup of warm sesame oil and perform the enema while lying on your back with your legs elevated.  Hold the oil in your rectum and colon for as long as possible, usually for 30 minutes or longer; turning on your right side will help make this easier, then expel the waste.  People with diabetes, obesity, indigestion, enlarged spleens should avoid oil enemas and opt for a water or decoction enema.

The decoction or water enema is the second type of enema and consists of taking up to a half liter or 16 oz of Chaparral, Comfrey tea or one liter of plain water at room temperature.  The enema is for people with the above problems and should not be taken more often than once or twice a week.  Avoid if you suffer from hemorrhoids, inflammation of the anus, diarrhea, of if pregnant.

The third type of enema is the Coffee enema.  This one lowers the serum (blood) toxins.  Coffee enema’s stimulates the visceral nervous system, and removes toxic bile form the duodenum out the rectum.  This enema is great if you are feeling tired and sluggish, or have pain in the mid or upper back, which might indicate you have a toxic liver.  The effects and relief are often immediate.  I take three heaping tablespoons of ground organic coffee (no instant or processed coffee) into 16 oz of boiling water.  I boil it for three minutes, then turn down the flame and let it simmer on low flame for 15 minutes.  Next filter the coffee into a coffee filter or cheese cloth and make sure no coffee substance is left at the bottom.  Let it cool to body temperature and perform the enema as you lay on your back with your legs elevated.  Hold the solution for 15 to 20 minutes, then release.  I find turning to my right side makes this easier.  This enema is really good for cancer, liver, and heart disease, and can be taken more frequently as often as every other day.

The fourth type of enema is the Urine Enema.  This is good for any type of skin conditions like acne and pimples.  You collect your urine starting in the morning (using mid-stream only) until you have one or two liters.  Administer the enema in late afternoon before eating.  You can warm it up with a little hot water if desired.  Lie on your back and administer.  You can lift your knees upwards towards your chin and hold for six minutes and roll to your right side for about 10 minutes or longer if you can then expel it.  I know the thought of a urine enema sounds discussing but urine contains the perfect mixture of vitamins, hormones, minerals, antibodies and is especially good for colon health and helps restore flora.  It’s a great enema for candida suffers.

Now that we have the gastrointestinal track cleaned, we can start looking at other methods that help the body in its detoxing process and preserve our health. What’s next you may be wondering?  You will find out in the next article I write.

As always if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me, until next time, I wish you great health, wealth and happiness.
