Is Functional Medicine Dysfunctional?

This is the info I am trying to get out to the world. I see so many people suffering from side effects of meds. My mom passed away last year from side effects of Maxalt. A drug for migraines that can cause aneurysms. She died of an aneurysm at the brain stem and this drug was the cause. I am angry and will continue to post information to help people to think about the things they are putting into their bodies.

Spiritual Wellness Needs to Be a Part of Cancer Treatment

Written by Scott Sanders, info@cancerwell.org

Cancer affects every part of a person’s life. Their body. Their mind. Their soul. Their family. Their hobbies. Their work. Yet when people talk about cancer treatment or management, the focus typically remains solely on the physical body of a cancer patient. It shouldn’t. Taking a more holistic approach to cancer treatment and remembering the crucial role that emotional and spiritual wellness have in any person’s life only help the recovery process.

The Huffington Post recaps an analysis of medical studies that suggests a link between positive religious and spiritual beliefs to favorable mental, physical and socialoutcomes. For example, spiritual well-being was associated with less anxiety and depression. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are increasingly seeing the value in fostering positive spiritual experiences for those who need and want it as part of their overall treatment strategy.

That probably does not come as a surprise to anyone. Spirituality has long been used by humans as a way of explaining the world around us. Many structured religions answer (or at least prepare you to grapple with) existential questions about life, deathand the purpose of everything that happens in between. Meanwhile, less structured, more earthbound spiritual practices do much of the same by allowing people to feel balanced and connected to the universe around them. It’s important to remember that spiritual wellness takes many forms.

Spiritual practice — which you might refer to as religious observation or prayer or meditation or mindfulness — keeps you in tune with your body and emotions. That is a particularly important for people who have cancer because they are susceptible to things like opioid addiction, which typically begins out of necessityafter a physically demanding treatment like surgery, but quickly evolves into risky behavior with potentially fatal consequences.

Cancer patients should be aware of the addictive nature of opioids and take measures to avoid it. This means seeking out doctors with good reputations who won’t over-prescribe medications. It also means embracing non-medical pain management techniques so you can use painkillers only when absolutely necessary. Many acts of spiritual and emotional self-care, such as mindful meditation and yoga, fall under this category and are a good thing for people with cancer to embrace. 

Similarly, spiritual self-care can offer a way for people with cancer to cope with the physical and emotional burden of having cancer. One national expert in spiritual wellness as a part of cancer therapy noted to Coping With Cancermagazine that a cancer diagnosis can make patients feel incredibly isolated, and being part of a spiritual community, such as a church, mosque or synagogue, offers a much-needed respite from feeling as if you are alone on an island. Activities including studying scripture or doing art projects related to expressions of spirituality also offer opportunities for people with cancer to keep their minds active and focused on something beyond their illness.

In addition to finding ways to enhance your spiritual wellness, any form of self-care during cancer treatment should include quality nutrition, adequate rest and time spent on enjoyable activities. Try to incorporate healthy, palatable meals into your diet, or see if your healthcare coverage provides nutrition therapyto provide guidance. Make sure to allow yourself time to rest as often as needed, avoiding feelings of guilt when you’re overcome with fatigue. And find activities that spark joy in your life, like a craft that makes you happy, time with friends or snuggling with your pet. Remember, true overall self-care bridges the physical and spiritual. 

Life after a cancer diagnosis can be frantic and stressful. There are so many things you cannot control. Your physical body will have treatment needs and those should almost always be prioritized. However, as the medical professionals take care of your organs and cells, you should be looking inward and making sure your emotional and spiritual needs are also being addressed.

Harmonic Egg vs. Flotation Tank?

I get asked this question a lot.  There is a slight similarity in that they are both enclosed or immersive experiences, but that’s it.   The float tanks use water and are not cleaned after each client.  They are filtered and they do contain a large amount of salt; however, they are not cleaned of the VIBRATION of the toxins in the water.  We all know from Dr. Emoto’s work with water that water HOLDS vibrations of toxins.  For example, if you filter out the heavy metals the water still holds the vibration of the metals in the water.  So, in order to clean the vibration of the toxins in the water after each client it would take a special process and I am not aware that is being done by the owners of the float tanks.   The Harmonic Egg is made of wood and does not hold energy or energetic information, like water.  The geometric shape of the egg has the ability to energetically “self-clean”.  There are no 90 degree angles for energies to collect.  There is a lot of information from Victor Schauberger about the egg shape, water and raising vibrations with the geometric shape of the egg.   The egg is the most powerful shape in the Universe and healing inside an egg just made sense when I created the Harmonic Egg.

How can the body raise vibrations and sync up in the Harmonic Egg?

“The Harmonic Egg is a healing chamber in the shape of a large dodecahedron egg. This innovative technology offers healing through light, frequency, vibration and sound in a sacred geometric shape. The client relaxes back in a zero gravity chair while being surrounded and embraced by soothing light, sound and vibration. My experience in the Harmonic Egg was one of complete peacefulness and a level of deep stillness and relaxation that I had never experienced before.”  ~Kirsten Antony, RN

The Harmonic Egg is a resonant chamber.  There are synchronized vibrations being used inside to help sync up your cells.  Let’s liken this to a room full of cuckoo clocks with pendulums all out of sync, over a short period of time the pendulums are all swinging in sync with each other.  The resonance chamber creates an environment to synchronistically organize the cells in the body so they are all playing nice together.  Also, calls spontaneous self-organization.  
 
Steven Strogatz, Mathematician, provides various examples from physics, biology, chemistry and neuroscience to illustrate sync / resonance in his 2003 book Sync: How Order Emerges from Chaos in the Universe, Nature and Daily Life, including: When fireflies of certain species come together in large gatherings, they start flashing in sync, in ways that can still seem a little mystifying.  Pretty cool stuff. 
 
Think about disease being an out of sync body.  We get out of sync from stress, trauma lack of sleep, poor diet and more.  The body, when in the right environment, can reprogram and get back in sync for a healthier and disease free YOU!

Everything has a time a place and an Evolution!

here
12 years ago I was introduced to a Sound and Light healing at Life Center that was a box.  The box WAS the best of its kind in the Sound and Light Therapy Field, but is now over 20 years old.  In 2016, the Harmonic Egg was born.  The Harmonic Egg has the best delivery of Sound and Light Therapy in the World as far as I know.   The Harmonic Egg inventor, Gail Lynn, attended the Music as Medicine Conference in Barcelona in June, 2018.  She was expecting to see some other amazing Evolutions of sound healing chambers in Europe and other parts of the World, but it turned out the Harmonic Egg was the most Amazing  Evolution of this type of technology and therapy in use now.   Gail brought box to Denver, CO in 2010 after using the technology for her own healing path in 2007.  This took her from Film Producer and Engineer to Inventor of an even more effective device, appropriately named the Harmonic Egg.  The Harmonic Egg uses Sacred Geometry, the Golden Main Ratio, and proper movement of sound inside an egg shape that drives the frequencies of the music into the body and creates a therapy 50% plus more effective than other light boxes.  We are forever thankful to the box for all of the years of  sound therapy but are even more grateful that it has evolved through the years.  The box will always hold a special place in the hearts of the people that were privy to experience it all those years ago.  I know that if I want the best in sound and light healing and therapy The Harmonic Egg is my choice over the box…hands down.  It’s all about Evolution!  ~Lori Trask
