Your Fingernails Tell Health Stories!

See What Your Manicurist Sees When Looking at Your Fingernails!

The manicurist might not recognize the symptoms your fingernails portray. However, some practitioners of Eastern and Western Medicine or of Holistic Healing Modalities can identify health problems by looking at your fingernails before you cover them up with nail polish. Human fingernail types Vector illustration

Here are some resources before we continue. They help define our terms of Eastern, Western, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM / holistic healing). They also provide more pictures and links than I can include in this blog.

The National  Institute of Health (NIH) compares Eastern and Western approaches to medicine and health.

An easier way to understand it may be found in the blog of a person who has practiced “all of the above.” Dr. Emili Kim describes his findings.

What Are Some Health Benefits of Using Apple Cider Vinegar?

smiley face OK signYou will be amazed! Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) works on everything from warts to arthritis and shrinking prostate glands, from sunburns to diabetes and digestive issues, and from chronic fatigue to excess fat reduction and Alzheimer’s.


Paul C. Bragg, Authority on Apple Cider Vinegar

The great authority on Apple Cider Vinegar was Paul C. Bragg, who was crippled by tuberculosis as a child. Like many people with life-threatening or delimiting diseases, he looked for solutions. He developed his own eating, breathing, and exercising routines and created a wonderfully healthy body. His website states, “He excelled in running, swimming, biking, progressive weight training and mountain climbing. He made an early pledge to God, in return for his renewed health, to spend the rest of his life showing others the road to super health.” Then, he became an advisor to Olympic athletes and brought health solutions to others as a pioneer in the following areas.

  • Bragg reputedly started the first health food store, health food products, and health food restaurants in America.
  • He formed Bragg Health Crusades which presented the first Health Lectures across America. He then hosted a television show to promote health. It featured exercises, healthy recipes, and guest appearances by famous, health-minded people.
  • He introduced Juice Therapy in America by importing the first hand-juicers.

But, enough about him. 🙂 Let’s talk about health benefits of using Natural Apple Cider Vinegar.

Classes – Holistic Healing

Nancy Wyatt dressed in white teaching classes

This page is to let you know that I’m available to teach one of my most popular seminars (which also can be presented as a workshop). It is a Class on Holistic Healing techniques and styles, also known as  “Complementary and Alternative Medicine.”

I conduct the presentation in person throughout the Washington, D.C. Metro Area and the Winchester to Warrenton regions of Virginia. Of course, I can travel to you also, if you want to pay for the transportation and hotel! It is a 5-hour class, so is not well-suited for online presentation. (I know you would multitask and/or leave the device on which you’re streaming the class! You can’t kid me!)

This class provides an overview of several assumptions, theories, ethics and modalities related to complementary and alternative wellness practices for the student to explore. It is for people who want to get well, stay well, and live well without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. See the topics, goals of the class, and my certifications below and/or scroll to the bottom to sign up! 😉 Continue Reading →

What follows is a rather technical description of how using the chi machine may contribute to improving your health. If you would rather read my ancient testimonial (I’ve been using this machine for YEARS), click on the link in this sentence.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Forms of Dementia

BrainNormal Brain     Is it really Alzheimer’s Disease or a different issue?

 What does your brain look like? 

What can  you do to maintain good brain health? 

The Alzheimer’s Association

There are many resources and options available now as our scientists learn more and more daily.  I believe in advocacy on a number of social issues, of which this is one.  I learn a lot from the Alzheimer’s Association and so can you at:   (http://www.alz.org/.

That is a link to their website where you can take a tour of the brain! 

You don’t have to have Alzheimer’s to find this fascinating as it shows you how the brain works in a way that you can see and understand it.  http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_4719.asp.  To learn more about the disease, itself, you can visit this part of their website:  http://www.alz.org/alzheimers_disease_what_is_alzheimers.asp..

For Wikipedia’s definition of Alzheimer’s Disease, see this link:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alzheimer%27s_disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD), also known in medical literature as Alzheimer disease, is the most common form of dementia. There is no cure for the disease, which worsens as it progresses, and eventually leads to death. It was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and was named after him.[1] Most often, AD is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age,[2] although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer’s can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 million sufferers worldwide. Alzheimer’s is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050.[3]

Here is another link, from the National Institutes of Health and National Institute on Aging:  http://www.nia.nih.gov/alzheimers/topics/alzheimers-basics.

What I hope to accomplish with blogs about Alzheimer’s Disease is to teach people about the disease, as well as how to cope with it or to provide care to others who experience it.
