Comparing Insect Repellents for Summer

mindfulness, blue butterflies on orange flower. summer is hereSummer is upon us! In addition to our enjoyment, we have learned to fear it. That’s because insects are more prevalent; they love us; they love our pets; and they might bring us an unwelcome dose of Lyme Disease, Powassan, West Nile virus, or Zika. It’s important to cover the body with light clothing and to wear scarves and hats when working or walking in wooded areas. It’s also time to compare insect repellents which are commercial poisons and those which are organic to see which ones work best. Some are oils; some are sprays. The Consumer Reports Buying Guide gives excellent descriptions of several products. Continue Reading →

Allergies, Symptoms, and Attitudes ~ Some Answers

Young woman examining her eyes - inflamed by allergiesWhat’s WRONG with me!  I was shocked to learn a person can get allergies at any age and that one in every five Americans experience them. In the USA, about 30% of all adults and 40% of children have allergies. The symptoms can range from annoying minor episodes to sudden and life-threatening occurrences. I wonder if it is significant that I did not experience symptoms until late in life. What changed and what can be done about it -medically and metaphysically? Hmmm. Continue reading

Six Major Functions of the Original Sun Ancon Chi MachineThumbs Up

“The Chi Machine” was created by Dr. Shizuo Inoue, Director of Oxygen Association, in Japan, after 38 years of research to ensure effectiveness, safety, and beneficial effects on the body. There are cheap imitations, but the original is the safest and only true, properly calibrated, well-made Chi Machine, and it has 27 patents.

Bone Health ~ Topical Tips | Surprising Suggestions

Bone Health ~ Topical Tips, Bone structure: health versus osteoporosis

Bone spongy structure close-ups: normal and with osteoporosis

Whether you are male or female, if you’re 30 or older, you have begun to lose bone density at the rate of approximately 1% per year; and, if you’re a female, who achieves menopause, the rate of loss increases greatly thereafter, so anyone can benefit from reading “Bone Health ~ Topical Tips.”  🙂

We all know we need calcium for bone health, but calcium also is critical to muscle and nerve function, blood pressure regulation, normal heartbeat, blood clotting, the health of our cells, and the release of certain hormones. However, calcium is not all we need. There are other vital nutrients that help your body absorb and use calcium. The most important of these are magnesium, vitamin D, and vitamin K.

Benefits of Clay

 Benefits of Clay? Here is an Update!

yellow and blue parrots eating clay on a clay cliffI devoted a whole page on this web site to the benefits of clay as a drink, a pack, a poultice, etc., and I hope you will read it after you check out the update!  Clay has been used, internally and externally, throughout the world for centuries by humans, animals, birds, and insects for its curative value.  The benefits of clay include its ability to detoxify the body, strengthen bones and teeth, draw out toxins, metals, parasites, etc. Special clays can be ingested (drunk by people or animals or mixed into food). Wait ’til you see a partial list of uses (below)! It’s mind-blowing! (Yes, I have used clay for many of these problems, so I know this is TRUE.) Continue Reading →

Eliminating Inflammation – What Can You Do?

 Eliminating Inflammation Is Vital To Good Health and Anti-Aging

Sick woman's eyes

Gaze Into My Ruby Red Eyes!

stick_figure_qa_pc_400_clr_2391Q:  “Why does the body have inflammation?”

A.  Inflammation indicates that a body is trying to counteract things like illness, injury, dementia, allergies, stings, and stress.

It not only is a healing mechanism, but also is a valuable message to the body’s “owner” that something is wrong and needs attention.

We should LOVE our inflammation first (for telling us the body needs help) —  and then get rid of it!

There Are Several Natural Methods of Eliminating Inflammation

It’s called Goli kili ginger drink, and is available through Amazon.com, among other locations.

Over Time, We’ll Discuss Alternatives for Eliminating Inflammation

First Up:  Dr. Andrew Weil’s Suggestions

Dr. Andrew Weil

Note:  I love Dr. Andrew Weil, who currently is Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.  Wikipedia has all the details; but, briefly, Dr.  Weil is world-famous for establishing the field of integrative medicine, which aims to combine alternative and conventional medicine.  He is a physician, and a research biologist, who truly understands the effects of plants on the body.

Here is a quote from his blog/web site, where you can get lots of information on a regular basis:

Optimal health does not come from a “miracle” drug or a fad diet, but is instead the result of making prudent daily decisions about how to eat, exercise, handle stress and connect with others.

One solution to inflammation is to eat and drink properly, using beneficial, anti-inflammatory foods.  Click on this picture of his Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid, where you can get the information by looking at the graphic.  He also has created a specific diet for you to follow.

 “What Does An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Do? The anti-inflammatory diet is a blueprint for a lifetime of optimum nutrition. Simple changes in how you eat can help counteract chronic inflammation, a root cause of many serious diseases, including:

OK, you can go to Dr. Weil’s website to learn more about this and a million other subjects. Meanwhile, let’s refer to how inflammation affects/causes aging.

Inflammation and Aging Processes


Here’s a new word for you:  Senescence (/sɪˈnɛsəns/) (from Latin: senescere, meaning “to grow old”, from senex) or biological aging (also spelled biological ageing). (Thanks, Wikipedia.) I advise you to read this article only if you have sophisticated vocabulary and a serious interest in the subject.  The bottom line is that some theories of aging relate directly to the levels of inflammation and free radical damage present in the body.

Since there are so many anti-inflammatory foods, herbs, and options, and since we all want to preserve health and youthful bodies, I am going to refer you to the April My Get Well Guru newsletter for “Health Nuts” and to future posts on this My Get Well Guru website, for some quick solutions, such as the use of ginger, aloe vera, and other items, rather than writing a whole thesis on this blog.  In the meantime, let’s reduce our…

Amethyst BioMat

Richway Amethyst BioMat

 

The Richway Amethyst BioMat – Professional

U.S.F.D.A.  Medical Device  #2954299

I experienced the luxurious warmth and healing sensations of this amethyst BioMat at a Take Back Your Health Conference a few years ago and could not resist buying one, despite the high cost.  Because most people can benefit from its use, but cannot afford its price, I now am offering rented time on the mat at a wonderful massage and exercise studio I found in Fairfax, Virginia.  It is called, Isola di Pace.” The address of Isola di Pace Massage Studio is:   10396 Willard Way, Fairfax, VA. Time slots will range, typically from 15 minutes to 55 minutes, although one could book more than one session in a row.  (Some people sleep on these mats all night, which I also have done.)

What Are The Benefits Of Using The Amethyst Biomat?

Easy Does It

Easy Does It at Isola di Pace

Whether you simply need to release stress or you want to address health issues, simply lying on the activated BioMat provides a feeling of well-being for a healthier mind and body. In my experience, some of the benefits of the BioMat are that it:

  • Reduces stress, anxiety and fatigue, while creating deep relaxation
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Provides warm, soothing pain relief for muscles and joints, including chronic neck and back pain,  arthritis, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, and age-related stiffness and pain
  • Alleviates migraines and tension headaches
  • Reduces allergy symptoms  (what a surprise – lying on my back helped enormously with allergy symptoms in my sinuses and chest!)
  • Improves immune system function
  • Improves cardiovascular health by increasing blood circulation
  • Improves lymph circulation to remove wastes and toxins from the body
  • Burns calories
  • Improves muscle tone and skin quality

 What Is In It, And

How Does The Amethyst Biomat Work?

Amethyst__Magaliesburg,_South_AfricaBioMats use quantum energy technology, combining far infrared rays (which penetrate 6 inches into the body), negative ion therapy, and the superconducting properties of pure amethyst.

See Credit below for Amethyst Photo

BioMats encourage the dilation of peripheral blood vessels, increasing the delivery of oxygen-rich blood to muscles and promoting the elimination of metabolic waste products.  In addition, BioMats stimulate the sweat glands, so they release toxins and waste, including heavy metals, residual alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.

The deep heat from the far infrared rays raises your body temperature, provoking an immune reaction and conditioning your immune system.  Your immune system is further purified by the elimination of toxins and waste.

Contact me or see my page to learn many more details.
