What is Optimal Health and How Can You Achieve It?

Optimal Health is freedom from all signs and symptoms of illness or dysfunction. Assuming you were born with good health and have had excellent childhood nurturing and continuing optimal health habits, you are likely to have optimal health well into your 90’s!

Of course, you have to have adequate food, clothes and shelter and be free of anxiety and depression. For most individuals, this ultimately means being self-actualized, which means being at your very best every day.

Maslow said, “I think of the self-actualizing man not as an ordinary man with something added, but rather as the ordinary man with nothing taken away.”  

Of course, just looking at health habits, at least 97% of people cannot be self-actualized because they lack one to 5 ESSENTIAL health habits!

What is optimal health? The lack of symptoms and dysfunction requires optimal nutrition, exercise and sleep, and relative freedom from the pollution of air and water. 

Optimal nutrition requires 80% vegetables and fruit and 20% protein.

Eighty percent of food sold in the United States is junk, loaded with sugar and artificial additives. In general, potatoes, sugar and white rice should be avoided. That includes all those packaged dry products on the center aisles at grocery stores and at all fast-food restaurants.

Optimal nutrition means eating total calories that provide you a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18 to 24. 

But optimal nutrition is not enough to achieve optimal health. To achieve optimal health you must also:

  • Exercise a minimum of 30 minutes five days a week 
  • Not smoke
  • Drink minimal alcohol
  • Not need any drugs
  • Sleep 7 or 8 hours every night

Beyond the care of your body, optimal health ultimately means that you are happy, that you have a network of friends (true for most people), and are organized and responsible. These are conscientious individuals who live longer and healthier than those who are not conscientious.

For most individuals, it means having a beloved mate and a family, with a home, and a meaningful lifework. The purpose in life is to help other people, and almost all jobs provide something of value to others. 

It also often means having a significant spiritual life. Spiritual health is a feeling of hope, peace, tranquility, and oneness with God and the universe. Meditation, prayer and a wide variety of religious practices keep one feeling positive about life itself. If you do not have such, practice this: Autogenic training Basic Schultz.

There is a lot that is under your control when it comes to achieving optimal health. However, not all is.

The biggest problem in achieving optimal health is avoiding poison!

City water in most cities is polluted with fluoride, one of the worst poisons in the world. If we do not get rid of fluoridation within the next 20 years, there will be no more children. Male sterility today is 20 million sperm count, already down from 150 million 50 years ago!

What is optimal health? Freedom from poison in food, water and air.  Air quality in most cities is far from optimal. In addition, the electromagnetic background is toxic as is the background of radioactivity. Since 1940 background radioactivity has increased many times.

How can you tell if you have optimal health?

Optimally healthy individuals have longer telomeres, the tips of DNA, higher natural levels of DHEA, the natural anti-stress hormone, lower cortisone and adrenalin, normal blood pressure and blood sugar. They work no more than 40 hours a week and take time to enjoy life. They have higher levels of D 3, vitamin C, and antioxidants. They have essentially no symptoms, no anxiety, no depression.

Unfortunately, not more than 3% of Americans enjoy this state of optimal health. 

Are you ready to change your habits to those necessary for optimal health?

So, if you ARE ONE OF THE 97% LACKING ESSENTIAL HABITS, now is the time to come to the rescue of your life and health. Start with your nutrition by avoiding wheat, white rice, potatoes, fast-food restaurants, and everything in the grocery store except vegetables, fruits, dairy, and non-processed meat.

If you do not already eat at least 5 servings of veggies and fruits daily, get ORAC-RICH GREENS and Moringa Olifera Super Mix and add those in a morning slush. Beyond that eat only items in the last paragraph.

What is optimal health? After the diet changes, consider bouncing for health

Then commit to sleeping 7 or 8 hours every night!

Finally, commit to doing Autogenic Training twice every day for 3 months. After 3 months, you will be joining the growing number of happy, longer-living, optimally healthy Americans. Become Self-Actualized.

8 Natural Anti-Anxiety Remedies That Really Work (According To An MD)

Anxiety is the major emotional/mental distress facing Americans today. Most turn to anti-anxiety drugs to alleviate their symptoms, but anti-anxiety drugs are among the worst of all pharmaceuticals. Fortunately, natural anti-anxiety remedies are thousands of times safer and more effective than any mood drug! 

All mood drugs are addicting and never cure anxiety or depression. 

Interestingly 75% of the negative studies on these useless, dangerous drugs are forbidden by the PharmacoMafia from being published! 

Anxiety leads not only to mental distress and physical illnesses but can also lead to anger, depression, and guilt. It is the reaction to fear of any kind—fear of injury, death, poverty, abandonment by a loved one or by God. 

The following # natural anti-anxiety remedies are the ones I most often recommend:

1. Detach

When you feel anxiety, immediately ask yourself whether the fear is real or likely. Then ask, can I fix it or overcome the threat? 

If it is obviously not fixable, then learn to release it into the hands of God, accept and detach. Twenty-seven thousand articles show 80% success in anxiety relief by simply detaching! 

When it comes to learning how to detach, the twice-daily practice of Autogenic Training is more effective than all the world’s psychologists and psychiatrists. And of course, there are 60 Biogenics exercises which add a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual exercises to balance your body mind and soul. 

2. Herbal remedy

Valerian root is an herb that is far safer and better than any pharmaceutical for anxiety relief.

3. Optimal nutrition

Natural anti-anxiety remedies also include optimal nutrition. This includes adequate vitamin B complex, tryptophanlithium orotate and antioxidants which are essential. The next best assistant is taurine, 3000 to 4000 mg daily. 

Of course 80 percent of your food should be vegetables and fruits and 20% should be meat, eggs, and dairy. Wheat is toxic because of glyphosate! Avoid anything in aluminum cans. And avoid fluoridated water as a major poison!

Sperm count since fluoridation has decreased from 150 million to 40 million. Men become infertile at 20 million! If we do not stop fluoridation, within 10 to 20 years men will be universally infertile! I have been treating infertile men for thirty years already.

If you have any silver fillings, find a sane holistic dentist to remove them. They are fifty to sixty percent mercury! POISON. The dental industry is as evil as the tobacco industry using mercury and pushing fluoride which has NO health benefit and universally is on the verge of causing total infertility! 

Additionally, you need to avoid sugar, wheat, and all artificial foods. Drink not more than two cups of coffee daily.

4. Physical exercise

Physical exercise is one of the best natural anti-anxiety remedies. Thirty minutes of moderate physical exercise is far superior to Valium or any anti-anxiety drug! Using a Vibe machine, a trampoline, taking a brisk walk or practicing yoga 30 minutes every day beats all mood drugs!

5. Deep relaxation and adequate sleep

The Shealy RelaxMate, with flashing blue frequencies between 1 and 7 cycles per second produces deep relaxation in at least 90% of people. The Liss Cranial Stimulator, now called Fisher Wallace used one hour in the morning raises serotonin.

Serotonin is the bright-eyed wake-up hormone and beta endorphin, the natural narcotic. These safe electrical devices are many more times effective than drugs or psychotherapy. And they are 100% safe. The only contraindication is a pacemaker. 

The single best natural remedy for anxiety is the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF. This is the only PEMF device that puts the brain into gamma, the in the zone state of detached joy, a state achieved by long practicing meditators.

Adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Yet many do not get enough sleep. Get enough sleep.

6. Past Life Therapy

The most effective natural psychological tool for overcoming anxiety is Past Life Therapy. Often unfinished anger, guilt, depression or anxiety from the past leaves a gnawing anxiety. It can be from childhood or from a previous incarnation. 

Remember that reincarnation was part of Christianity until 325AD when it was removed from the Bible because they did not want people to think they had a second chance. Read REINCARNATION IN CHRISTIANITY by Geddes McGregor!

7. Breathing techniques

There are dozens of natural anti-anxiety remedies that use breathing to reduce anxiety. The simplest is just breathing in and out slowly, 5 to 6 seconds in, and 5 to 6 seconds out. Doing this just a few minutes most often reduces blood pressure to normal and quickly relieves anxiety.

8. Intensive Holistic Therapy

For those who do not or cannot overcome anxiety with the tools above, consider a one- or two-week intensive holistic therapy program at Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute. Forty or 80 hours of comprehensive, holistic therapy can help the most serious chronic physical, emotional, and spiritual problems. It is far better than a year of weekly hour-long sessions of psychotherapy!

When you look at this list of natural anti-anxiety remedies you and see that they include the reduction of all physical, mental, emotional, and chemical stressors!  

When you regularly use these natural remedies, you will find that it becomes easier to release your anxiety, detach from those things you cannot change and be at peace.

Eating an abundance of fruits and vegetables like these can help combat the signs of a weakened immune system.

5 Surprising Signs of a Weakened Immune System & How To Strengthen It

Everything affects everything in the body, and a chief regulator of every organ is the immune system. So, it is vital that you know the signs of a weakened immune system.

The 5 Signs of a Weakened Immune System:

  1. Inflammation
  2. Anxiety
  3. Depression
  4. Pain
  5. Insomnia

Inflammation is the major effect of immune distress and immune function affecting all brain and mood functions, perhaps more than other organs.

Even aging itself is a chronic low-grade reaction to inflammation. The causes of inflammation include overconsumption of omega 6 fatty acids, sugar, salt, alcohol, bacterial and viral infections, allergies, parasites, hormone imbalances, genetically modified foods, heavy metals, pesticides, furniture fabrics and rugs, and many personal hygiene products, including all stress. 

Stress is emotional, mental, chemical, electrical, and radioactive.

All of these are frequent co-factors with fatigue, muscle weakness, and eventually every conceivable organ dysfunction, especially of digestion, with GERD, indigestion, irritable bowel, constipation or diarrhea, as well as visible inflammation, arthritis, acne, hypertension or hypotension, irregular heartbeat, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, fractures with minimal physical stress, heart attack, stroke and cancer. 

How To Strengthen A Weakened Immune System

Maintenance of a healthy immune system begins with nutrition, especially consuming adequate Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3. K2 deficiency leads not only to Alzheimer’s Disease but K2 is essential for absorbing D3. 

Approximately 80% of Americans are partially or highly deficient in D3 and K. Deficiencies in these essentials lead to depression, insomnia, arthritis, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, estrogen or testosterone imbalances, and of course a weakened immune system and inflammation.

Next at the top of the list of nutrition to support your immune system is chlorella, a rare plant source of vitamin B-12. Low levels of B-12 lead to arthritis, overactive thyroid or Graves’ disease, diabetes, hypogonadism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, lupus Sjogren’s syndrome, Raynaud’s syndrome, gout, vasculitis, ankylosing spondylitis, and even rheumatoid arthritis. 

Note the 5 signs of a weakened immune system, are just major signs so that essentially every disease is at least partially the result of a weakened immune system, affecting every organ.

Second to chlorella is adequate Omega 3, the major benefit of which is anti-inflammation and antioxidant effects of DHA/EPA which of course primarily affect heart, mood, anxiety, and depression.  

Although fish oil is the best-known source of omega 3’s, emu oil is equally good and is far less likely to have mercury contamination! The anti-inflammatory benefits include significant help with rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, and migraine.

Inflammation is the most damaging of the signs of a weakened immune system. So, decreasing inflammation is critical to improving your immune system’s functioning. 

And although the most popular anti-inflammatory drugs are aspirin, Ibuprofen, and ketoprofen, these drugs often cause gastrointestinal problems including diarrhea and even bleeding, there are safe natural remedies. 

Turmeric or its extract curcumin tops the list of safe and effective anti-inflammatory agents. Interestingly its benefits are increased when given with piperine or black pepper.

Curcumin’s cousin, ginger also has significant anti-inflammatory benefits, decreasing cortisol, the stress hormone, and is even more powerful when added to curcumin. Both are improved with piperine. 

Chromium is a requirement for optimal regulation of sugar & insulin. Chromium also assists weight loss, decreases inflammation and oxidative stress, while assisting in metabolism of protein and carbohydrates, decreasing cravings and improving blood sugar regulation.

In addition to these nutritional supplements, the intestinal system is the most important for overall metabolic health, containing many more microorganisms than the total cells of your body! INDEED, these trillions of cells are ultimately the controllers of nutrition and health. 

These health-enhancing bacteria are probiotics and they require prebiotics, mostly as fiber and sturdy starches. Seventy percent of your immune cells are the probiotics. Your intestine is ultimately the determinant of overall physical, mental and emotional health.

Unfortunately lactobacillus acidophilus, the primary probiotic occurs naturally in milk, and milk is often a trigger for inflammation and autoimmunity problems. Fulvic and humic acids are essential pre and probiotics, which chelate or bind toxins to remove them.

The signs of a weakened immune system can be best reduced with vitamin D3, K2, cilantro, ginger, curcumin, aloe vera, astralgus, cordyceps mushroom, dandelion root, glutathione, piperine, golden seal, rhodiola rosea, silymarin, pre/probiotics and L-taurine.

In strengthening your immune system, you are ultimately decreasing inflammation, pain, anxiety and depression, while improving health and longevity.

Sugar cubes in a silver bowl next to a tea pot and lemons

Sugar Blues – The Dark Side of Sweet

William Duffy’s book SUGAR BLUES should have been the death knell to the exorbitant use of sugar (sucrose). Of course, half a century earlier Price and Pottenger (NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL DEGENERATION) had scientifically documented the role of sugar and white flour as major contributors to DISEASE, ranging from dental decay to atherosclerosis and cancer, especially of the colon. Much of this took place before the plague of McDonald’s and its fast-food clones, the increased processing of food and the maddening array of artificial additives.

And sugar certainly contributes to the epidemic of depression.

There are only 4 primary tastes: sweet, sour, bitter and salty. Most of the overtones to these tastes come from the wide array of aromas that are part of food’s enticement. It is hard to fathom why such artificial and unhealthy practices as additions of sugar, white flour and white rice became staples. None of these is NATURAL. All are much inferior to the original products. All are deficient in fiber, minerals and vitamins, all of which are essential for health and life. White flour has NO fiber and is oxymoronically ‘enriched’ with one-seventh the normal content of B 6. Sugar has ZERO, ZIP, NO nutrient VALUE. Indeed, it sucks vital nutrients from whatever other sources you have.

ARTIFICIAL sweetners such as aspartame, ‘UNEQUAL’ and Splenda are chemical slop at best and toxins at worst. These and saccharine are not food and should be abandoned by anyone with an IQ of 90 and above. And for those with lower IQ, these nonsense chemicals may be even worse! Aspartame at least significantly worsens obesity, migraine, epilepsy and hypertension. And constantly stimulating your sweet tooth is a major assistant to developing insulin malfunctions.

Are there any good, healthy sweets? Yes, of course. Fruits and honey. For almost all people these are healthier and more desirable than any other sweet-tasting foods. Honey is sweeter than sugar, tastes better and is an excellent antioxidant.

Incidentally, xylitol has been touted as a great substitute and it may be minimally better than sugar. However, it does raise blood sugar, cause release of insulin and has led to serious complications even in dogs! Its only use might be as a nasal spray in children with frequent ear infections, where regular use does appear to be helpful.

Fructose is also not healthier although it is twice as sweet as sugar so that less is needed to satisfy sweetness.

Now, if you are really healthy, eat an otherwise good diet, etc, I do not feel a need to be a total nihilist. For healthy people an occasional dose of sugar may be fine. Especially if it is in dark chocolate!

Pill prescriptions are not the best way to deal with depression.

The Best Way To Deal With Depression

Depression affects 40% of people at least part of each year, and some individuals are depressed many years of their lives. This is most common in children who are not nurtured adequately or are abused. 

Unfortunately, many individuals believe the only way to deal with depression is to take medication. Antidepressant drugs are among the worst drugs in the world!!! 

The best way to deal with depression is NEVER antidepressants! They significantly increase the risk of suicide! 

In fact, there are four major scientific articles that report that the PharmacoMafia PREVENTS PUBLICATION of negative research studies on antidepressants! If all the negative results had been ALLOWED to be published, the net result would be ZERO. 

Nutritionally, for adults, 7000 mg of L-tryptophan, with 50 mg of B complex and 15 to 20 mg of lithium orotate taken in the morning will strikingly and safely relieve depression 75 to 80% of the time. No drug can do this! 

Incidentally, you would have to eat 84 ounces of turkey to get that amount of tryptophan! When I reported the use of tryptophan at a major medical conference in the ’70s, NATIONAL ENQUIRER featured it. Next day the country was sold out of tryptophan! 

The best way to relieve depression includes the use of the Liss Cranial Electrical Stimulator for one hour every morning. Totally safe, better than all drugs and all psychotherapy, it applies only one or two milliamps of current at 15, 500 and 15,000 cycles per second.

You will apply the stimulator to each temple, or front of head to back of head at upper neck. You must complete your work with the stimulator must by noon. The stimulator is now sold as Fisher-Wallace, which, unfortunately, has put it out with automatic shut off at 20 minutes, so turn it on 3 times!

You have to turn it on three times to get the best results. The only contraindication is a pacemaker. It works well in 80% of people with depression. And you just put it on and go about your normal activities while wearing it.

The best way to deal with depression includes the use of the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF® an hour or two daily, preferably used on top of the head. It puts the brain into gamma frequency, the “in the zone” state of mind found in long-standing intense meditators.

It is important to note that gamma brain activity is missing in virtually every known disease! Thus, the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF has great benefit as an adjunct in all illnesses, including depression, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinsonism, as well as hypertension and diabetes.

All individuals benefit from self-regulation, using our mental retraining program Biogenics®. There are 60 different mental exercises for a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual regulation. Some examples are Autogenic Training, and Essay on Prayer.

Other good Biogenics® titles to explore, when you are dealing with depression, include Relaxation and Healing, Basic, Internal and Spiritual Will, Age Regression, Rainbow Energy Balancing, Self-Actualization, Self-Image, Wise Person Attunement, Balancing Emotions, balancing Self-Esteem, Coping with Fear, Anger and Depression, and Who Am I.

The following Biogenics® titles all have biochemical, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefit:

  • Way of the Sea
  • Retraining the Nervous System
  • Ideal Weight Balance
  • Freedom from Smoking
  • Stress and Distress
  • Sacred healing
  • Health Focus
  • Rings of Fire Air, Water, Earth, and Crystal

For many people, the best way to deal with depression includes past life therapy.

In all major illnesses, unfinished anger, guilt, anxiety, or depression may be related to a painful death in a previous life. Often a single hour session of past life therapy can serve for healing life-long depression.

For more complex situations, which often include pain, anxiety and depression for many decades, an intensive one or two week, forty- to eighty-hour intensive holistic therapy program is the major necessity. This has been a hallmark of our work at Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute since our origin in 1971.

For the most complex situations, including cancer, IV vitamin C, ozone and the one- or two-week intensive program can be life-enhancing. The first miracle I saw was the complete cure of a 50-year-old woman with widespread metastatic cancer. On the 17th day of therapy, she suddenly got rid of her pain and cancer!

In acute illness, conventional medicine using drugs or surgery can be life-saving. But when symptoms persist for months or years, comprehensive holistic medicine including nutrition, electrical devices, and retraining the nervous system are the best possible therapy.

This class of yogis has discovered how to alleviate anxiety.

How To Alleviate Anxiety Without Drugs

Anxiety is a reaction to stress or fear of any kind—death, invalidism, abandonment, poverty, loss of love, or loss of faith in God. Always ask the question: Can I fix it or change it? Do I have the strength or ability to change it? – If so, go for change! If not, nothing to do except accept and detach. 

A twice-daily practice of Autogenic training is more effective than all the world’s psychologists and psychiatrists combined! Twenty-seven thousand articles show 80% success in alleviating anxiety —detach! And of course, there are 60 Biogenics exercises which add a wide variety of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual exercises to balance body mind and soul 

Nutritionally, adequate vitamin B complex, tryptophan and lithium orotate, and antioxidants are essential. The next best assistant for alleviating anxiety is taurine (3000 to 4000 mg daily). 

All mood drugs are addicting and never cure anxiety or depression. Interestingly 75% of the negative studies on these useless drugs are forbidden by the PharmacoMafia from being published! 

Lithium orotate 15 to 20 mg daily and 50 mg of B complex are essential for alleviating anxiety. For more intense situations, valerian root is far superior to any drug. 

And of course, you can also alleviate anxiety with your dietary choices. Eighty percent of your food should be vegetables and fruits and 20% should be meat, eggs, and dairy. Wheat is toxic because of glyphosate! Avoid anything in aluminum cans. 

If you have any silver fillings, find a sane holistic dentist to remove them. They are fifty to sixty percent mercury! POISON. 

Finally, avoid fluoridated water! It is ultimately one of the most toxic elements in the world. 

The dental industry is as evil as the tobacco industry using mercury and pushing fluoride which has NO health benefit and universally is on the verge of causing total infertility! Sperm count since fluoridation has decreased from 150 million to 40 million. Men become infertile at 20 million!

Interestingly, 30 minutes of moderate physical exercise is far superior to Valium or any anti-anxiety drug when it comes to alleviating anxiety! Using a Vibe machine, a trampoline, going on a brisk walk or doing yoga for 30 minutes every day can help more than all the drugs and psychotherapists in the world.

Another tool you might consider for relieving your anxiety is the Shealy RelaxMate. It has flashing blue frequencies between 1 and 7 cycles per second which produces deep relaxation in at least 90% of people. 

The Liss Cranial Stimulator, now called Fisher Wallace, used one hour in the morning raises serotonin, the bright-eyed wake-up hormone, and beta-endorphin, the natural narcotic. These safe electrical devices are many more times effective than drugs or psychotherapy for alleviating anxiety. 

Another option for reducing your anxiety is to use the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF, Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency device, an hour or more daily. The only contraindication is an implanted pacemaker or electronic device. 

This is the only PEMF device that puts the brain into gamma, the in-the-zone state of detached joy, a state achieved by long practicing meditators. It resets the normal neutral electrical state of each cell, improves circulation, and reduces pain 

If these simple tools don’t alleviate your anxiety, consider Past Life Therapy. Often unfinished anger, guilt, depression, or anxiety from the past leaves a gnawing anxiety. It can be from childhood or from a previous incarnation. 

(Remember that reincarnation was part of Christianity until 325, when it was removed from the Bible because they did not want people to think they had a second chance. Read REINCARNATION IN CHRISTIANITY BY Geddes McGregor!)

There are also dozens of breathing techniques for reducing anxiety. The simplest is just breathing in and out slowly, 5 to 6 seconds in and 5 to 6 seconds out. Doing this just a few minutes most often reduces blood pressure to normal and quickly relieves anxiety

For those who do not or cannot overcome anxiety with the tools above, consider a one- or two-week intensive therapy program at Shealy-Sorin Wellness Institute. Forty or 80 hours of comprehensive, holistic therapy can help the most serious chronic physical, emotional, spiritual problems. It is far better than a year of hour sessions of weekly psychotherapy!

When it comes to alleviating anxiety, you will want to reduce stress which includes physical, mental, emotional, and chemical stress! You will also want to avoid sugar, wheat, fluoride, and all artificial foods Drink not more than two cups of coffee daily. Do Autogenic Training. Exercise at least 30 minutes 5 to 7 days each week. Sleep at least 7 or 8 hours every night. DETACH from those things you cannot change! Be at peace.

Man struggling with chronic pain and mental health issues being examined by his doctor.

Things You Need To Know About Treating Chronic Pain And Mental Health

Chronic pain and mental health are almost Siamese twins. Anxiety, guilt, frustration, and depression weaken the entire body and are themselves tremendous stressors.

Obviously, the first need when there is physical pain is to learn whether there is a physical cause that can be corrected. This often requires evaluation by a physician.

Perhaps the most common physical CAUSE of low back pain is a rotation of the sacrum, called a sacral shear. No chiropractor or usual M.D. knows this diagnosis.

Unfortunately, 90% of osteopaths no longer practice osteopathic manipulative therapy. I have treated successfully in one minute hundreds of this easily corrected problem! It is much more common than a ruptured disc.

Obviously fractured bones and appendicitis require physical intervention, as do abscesses, local infections, benign tumors, etc. A majority of urinary or bladder infections can be successfully managed by taking D-Mannose.

But both acute and chronic pain create anxiety and depression.

One of the most common causes of pain is muscle tension, most often associated with magnesium deficiency. Indeed, almost 80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium, because our soil is deficient. Beef and dairy farmers know they must give cattle extra magnesium but vegetable and fruit farmers do not give their crops magnesium!

Interestingly, although magnesium in vegetables is great, magnesium supplements are very poorly absorbed. Indeed, oral magnesium is useful only as a laxative! Chronic pain and mental health are best helped with magnesium lotion on the skin!

When chronic pain and mental health do not respond to physical intervention or simple magnesium lotion, there are numerous simple, safe alternatives.

Perhaps the simplest is TENS, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve stimulation, introduced by me in the 1960s, and still used worldwide. Unfortunately, physical therapists are accustomed to using short modalities, often just 30 minutes. Successful use of TENS requires anywhere from one or two hours to all day.

If it is easy to surround the pain with electrodes above and below and/or on either side of the pain, that placement may be ideal. If the area is too large or the around the pain placement does not work, there are eight alternative remote placements that can be totally satisfactory.

(You can look up the following acupuncture points and see physical placements for each acupuncture point named. TENS should be strong but never painful and trial stimulation of at least one hour should be tested.)

  1. Master of the Heart or Pericardium 6-on the palmar aspect of the wrist about one inch above the wrist, coupled with Triple Heater 5, about one inch above the back of the wrist. This placement may be useful for arm, shoulder or neck pain
  2. Conception Vessel 6, about one inch below the umbilicus coupled with Governing Vessel 16, just below the inion on the upper back of the neck. This combo is good for pain in the chest or neck.
  3. Kidney 1 on the sole of the foot between the ball of the big toe and the second toe coupled with Bladder 60, behind the external malleolus and between it and the gastrocnemius tendon. These points are excellent for pain in legs, pelvis, and lower half of the body.
  4. Large Intestine 4 on the fleshy part between thumb and the index finger on the back of the hand coupled with Stomach 36 just below the knee between the tibia and fibula. These can be used to treat diffuse and somewhat generalized pain.

Chronic pain and mental health deserve a trial of any and all combinations to be confident of pain relief with continued use of TENS.

These additional two placement options are also great for generalized pain.

  1. Kidney 3 between the medial malleolus and the gastrocnemius tendon, coupled with Master of the Heart 6, on the palmar aspect of the wrist about one inch above the wrist. These also for generalized pain.
  2. Triple Heater 5 about one inch above the back of the wrist, coupled with Spleen 4 on the inside of the foot at the proximal end of the long bone, the metatarsal of the foot. Another great combo for generalized pain.

If TENS does not work for a marked improvement in chronic pain and mental health, the next best bet is the Shealy-Sorin Gamma PEMF®, the only Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency device that puts the brain into Gamma, the “in the zone” state for happiness, freedom from depression and anxiety, and recovery from opioid addiction, as well as improved circulation and pain relief.

One or another of these many options, used with Biogenics® mental retraining exercises will succeed in excellent relief of chronic pain and mental health challenges in at least 85% of individuals.

50 Years of Pain Management

Although electricity has been used for decades, it was the introduction of spinal cord stimulation and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in the 1960s that initiated the modern widespread use (1-2). Cranial electrical stimulation was introduced in 1976, and since then, electrotherapy has been advanced to help heal fractures, wounds, assist bladder control, control opioid addiction, treat fibromyalgia and virtually all pain, cure tinnitus, advance acupuncture, treat hypertension, and improve memory (3-4). Electroshock therapy has unfortunately continued despite its risks and long-term damage, while electrotherapy is not considered acceptable. Even worse is frontal lobotomy for anything, including psychiatric illness or pain!

How To Stimulate A Depressed Immune System

A basic key to total health is the immune system.  Although you usually think of immunity as resistance to infections, immune health also requires resistance to cancer and autoimmune diseases. For all these problems you need to know how to stimulate a depressed immune system.

A depressed immune system is responsible for a huge majority of illnesses and premature death. There are more than 100 different autoimmune diseases in which the immune system damages or destroys one or more organs.

Some of the most well-known autoimmune diseases are overactive thyroid (Graves’ disease), deficient thyroid (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel diseases (Crone’s), rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus erythematosus, and psoriasis.

About seven percent of Americans have an autoimmune disorder, twice as often in women as in men but equally serious in both sexes. There is also a significant genetic influence.

The leading cause of death in women up to age 65 is autoimmune diseases, one situation where you really need to know how to stimulate a depressed immune system.

Vaccinations are major attempts to protect the body from many infections, but there are some significant suggestions that at least some childhood problems like autism and Panda’s Syndrome are a reaction to vaccinations.

Of course one of the major problems with vaccines is the common inclusion of mercury, aluminum and other toxins! There are also other “causes” of the basic autoimmune abnormal behavior of our ordinary protective B and T white blood cells.

Disturbances to a normal nutrient, polysaccharides or glycans, are a root biochemical contributor to autoimmunity. Inadequate exposure to normal immune stimulation of dirty items may also contribute.

Once the body has developed autoimmunity, conventional therapy includes steroids like cortisone and strong immune modulators like methotrexate, both of which can create as much harm as the disease.

Seutermann homeopathy is my major therapeutic approach to stimulate a depressed immune system.

 

Developed by a German homeopath, Seutermann includes a quinone, a Krebs cycle component, a detox, a standard appropriate homeopathic remedy, and a disease organ specific remedy.

 

I have used Seutermann homeopathy to cure rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma. It is infinitely safer than steroids!

 

Of course there are significant essential health habits which should also be common sense for anyone who wants to stimulate a depressed immune system: maintain healthy weight, get adequate sleep, exercise at least 5 days a week, and eat 5 to eight servings of vegetables and fruits daily

 

And avoid smoking, excess alcohol, sugar, junk food. Wash your hands frequently and do not eat inadequately cooked meats. MINIMIZE STRESS!! (Autogenic training is the foundation for stress-free living.)

 

Supplements are major health enhancers. These include 25 to 50 mg of B complex, at least 2 grams of vitamin C, 10 to 20 mg of Astaxanthin, the strongest vitamin A.

 

You can also stimulate a depressed immune system using some of the greatest immune strengtheners, such as Cordyceps, Lions Main mushroom, Tiger Tail mushroom, Ashwagandha, and Beta Glucans.

 

Detoxing with a sauna, soaking in a hot bath with added magnesium chloride crystals, and rubbing castor oil over your entire body before you go to bed (you can wear an old sweat suit to protect your bedding) can also boost immunity.

 

Almost all diseases lead to deficiency in Dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA, or the anti-stress hormone. And this deficiency can further depress your immune system. However, instead of taking a DHEA supplement to stimulate your immune system, MAKE IT instead!

 

There are four natural and safe ways to enhance DHEA production:

Fire Bliss, Dr. Shealy’s Youth Formula, Dr. Shealy’s Magnesium Lotion, and Eugesterone. These 4 increase DHEA 250%.

All illnesses, including a weak immune system, increase cell death with increased free radicals in the urine. Get yourself Oxi-Data test kits and check your levels. If over one, the best choice is Crystal Bliss.

Crystal Bliss applied once daily decreases free radicals a whopping 80%! There is nothing else that comes close to this safe Transcutaneous Acupuncture technique.
