What does it mean to detox? How safe is detoxing? Have you even thought about what the body is doing when you are initiating a detox?
Could all the man-made powders for detoxing be irritating the crap out of your intestinal lining and aggravating the liver and gut? That’s not a detox reaction. That’s is just plain hurting and over taxing the body.
Removing processed food is a way to detox.
Safe detoxing is about lowering the fats in the diet, including good fats and oils, nuts and seeds, cheese, butter, and CHICKEN, yes, chicken has fat…animal proteins have fat. You can’t really cleanse on a deep level with fats in the diet.
When you shock the body the immune system CRASHES. People doing a cleanse that already have aches and pains, IBS, gluten issues, headaches, migraines, dizziness, autoimmune, etc…you shock your body and can get a re-ignition of shingles or viral infections and more.
My observations about vibroacoustic technologies, as a means for healing, after attending the Music as Medicine Conference in Spain
I attended the 5th annual IAMM Conference in Spain in June, 2018. My expectations were pretty high with hopes of meeting others doing similar or better work with vibroacoustic technologies. However, there were none even close to what we are doing with the Harmonic Egg and the resonant chamber. There was one technology that used a zero-gravity chair with speakers in it as a whole body healing modality, but that had a pad over the speakers in the chair so I know we already resolved that issue from distorting the music by playing it through a pad. They had a home version of the technology with just two speakers in a pad and openly admitted to NO results from the home version over the whole-body chair. That told me a lot about working to heal the whole body as a system.
Many of the technologies were using headphones and an MP3 player and I don’t know if they knew NOT to use compressed MP3 files for the best quality of listening. Compressed MP3 files are cold and clinical. They are for convenience and not healing. I was pretty disappointed to not be able to “network” and learn more than I have already studied on my own.
All the presenters had research on how music therapy has worked in their practice / business. Many were medical doctors and / or credible PhD practitioners. Presenters were from 10+ countries and attendees were from 20+ countries. I made some good contacts and will be following up to chat with peers about their research and how we can get even better results.
Two observations I want to highlight in this writing. There were so many, but let’s focus on these two for now.
Many of them presented and felt that patients would not get completely free of the dis-ease / illness, but would sustain a level of wellness. I disagreed. I have seen people get better and not just sustain. I spoke to many of them about this hope and how we have helped using more than music therapy. Some didn’t understand the relationship with heavy metals and neurotoxins with Parkinson’s so I gave them another layer of help for their patients. One doctor said that patients would never get rid of Parkinson’s but could have a quality life if they came for treatments the rest of their lives. I felt terrible to hear that because I want people to come to the Life Center and, after a period of time, their body will take over the healing and they are not dependent on a technology or person to keep them well. Our bodies are amazing and we can heal from “named” dis-ease. We just have to get back into balance and reset the system. Yes?
No one that spoke talked about the different musical instruments doing different things for the body. They ALL (and this really blew my mind) said they let the patient / client choose their own / favorite music for therapy. WHAT?! Some spoke about Katy Perry and Shania Twain music and some spoke about Enya and others. Don’t get me wrong. I love some of the music, but I have studied voice analysis and how different instruments have different effects on the body. For example, piano can help balance / reset the nervous system. Some of the doctors discussed how disease starts from the nervous system getting out of balance and they know we need to reset it to heal. I don’t believe Katy Perry’s music will do this.
In my studies, I have been told that if a singer has an imbalance or disease it can be picked up by others that listen to their music. How? I don’t know. It does make sense to me because everything is energy and we do affect each other in ways we don’t quite understand. We can feel down when around others that feel down. We can feel excited when around others that are excited. It makes sense, but my question is why doesn’t everyone get effected? Maybe because we are all vibrating at different frequencies and those of us vibrating at the same frequencies as the one transmitting the dis-ease can pick it up? Just a theory for now. I keep learning more on this topic.
The other danger of listening to your favorite music as music therapy is that you might not be getting the piano you need to balance / reset the nervous system. If you are just getting drumming and guitar to help heal dis-ease or illness that requires flute and trumpet you won’t get the results you could get if you listened to the proper music. Everything I read on this topic shows that different instruments can work on different conditions / organs / chakras for the body. I often hear people say they don’t like piano music. My opinion is two-fold. One they never really spent time listening to it. Two it makes people feel uncomfortable as they are so out of balance and the body will actually get uncomfortable when coming into a new normal. Change is always uncomfortable. When you are stuck in flight or fight for so long and you ask the body to come into balance there WILL be resistance to change. Let it flow…
Ok, you are probably all getting bored by now so let’s end with that food for thought.
In summary, I want to thank all of you who have supported the Life Center and the Harmonic Egg, and who have believed in me and in it for your healing. I am humbled and in gratitude to the thousands of people that have come to the center and provided such great feedback. I truly believe we can heal using the right environment, the right music, diet and intention. We are in an exciting time and seeing great modalities for natural healing (some helpful and some hurtful), but we have to let the cream rise to the top and the Harmonic Egg is the cream so go out and find what is right for you and enjoy your healing journey.
My life is forever changed from vibroacoustic technologies and I look forward to what the future holds. I am blessed to be of service and to keep learning. Everyone I met in Spain was on a journey to be of service and help others heal. Great hearts and minds coming together to give people hope. I plan to write some case studies and submit them to the association. I was asked to submit when they do the call for papers to be a speaker at the conference in 2020. Very excited!
I have been studying sound and light therapy, frequencies, different types of music / artists and instruments for almost 10 years now. I am an engineer from Detroit so it’s not been easy for me to accept what I have seen and experienced since opening Life Center in Denver, Colorado about 8 years ago.
There are all kinds of healing modalities and healers out there. Some work, some don’t and some are temporary fixes. I have tried 50 or more modalities over the years and what works for one may not work for others. It’s a journey to find the combination to your healing.
I created the Harmonic Egg because I have tried so many other modalities without success for the deep healing I was seeking.
Everyone thinks they understand frequencies and they deem 528Hz for healing the DNA and 432Hz as the Universal frequency. Not so…why? Everyone is different and everyone vibrates at different frequencies every second of every day. PLUS, people are listening to 528Hz on their computer or MP3 player and I don’t believe you are actually getting 528Hz from compressed files or tiny speakers. I believe MP3 files are cold and clinical for healing. We use CD quality music with amazing speakers AND the key is we use a geometry of an egg in a resonant chamber. You are immersed in the environment for your whole body and soul. You do not need to have specific frequency for this type of healing. It’s the geometry / shape and resonance that is healing not the named frequencies.
Many of our clients are musicians and one mentioned that his instrument only tunes to 440Hz and if he tries to force 432Hz or 441Hz it’s out of tune and does not play well. Think about it. The body is that way too. If you force binaural beats and hemi-sync music you might be doing yourself a disservice. Why not allow the body to come into balance naturally? The CPU of the body is the nervous system, not the brain. That’s my opinion. The brain is connected to the nervous system as is everything else.
Through all my studying and observation people do really well in the Harmonic Egg. I am amazed on a daily basis how people can heal. Recently there were two examples I can give you. One was a young man with lower back pain and the doctors could not help him. He did one session and said his back was “feeling ridiculously good”. Why? My opinion is that the pain was emotional and we discussed releasing the emotions. One of the keys to healing is intention! The second example is a young woman who recently had 2 epidurals during her child’s birth. She set the intention to relieve the pain in the area where the epidurals were given and she told me the next day the pain was gone. Am I amazed? Yes! Am I surprised? NO! The body is an amazing machine and can heal at quantum speed when given the right environment.
In creating the Harmonic Egg and making it a reality, I have taken on a HUGE responsibility. It’s very humbling. It’s also very stressful to be in this field. I feel like a pioneer and my intuition is so strong from the years of doing sound and light therapy. It’s hard to watch a lot of more “credible” people put their opinions out there and yet I know many are not correct, but their egos are in the way of them learning what is true and real. There are things that have been revealed to me through mentors and intuition that I know to be true, but you can’t read about it or study it just yet. You just have to trust. Each and every one of us are different and no one person will heal with the same modalities as another. I believe in the Harmonic Egg everyone is seen differently and can heal within the confines of their capability and speed. For some it’s a journey and for some it’s instant based on their path with the illness, disease, emotion or trauma.
I could write a book, but most people are busy and short articles are easier to digest. If you would like more information or have questions you can visit the website and find TV and Radio Interviews, testimonials, other articles and more! https://lifecenter.us
Why the Harmonic Egg?
It’s been the question of the day since I announced the creation in July, 2017.
I have been studying sound and light therapies and healing for eight years. I have owned and operated my own healing center during this time and observed the effects of several therapies on clients’ health and well-being. I have owned two technologies that were sound and light chambers. I created the Harmonic Egg as a new and innovative, next generation healing chamber based on my observations of clients before and after sessions in the previous two technologies, research on the modality, reading books from experts in the industry, white paper studies and collaboration with the medical community. The Harmonic Egg is a large ellipse (egg shape) where the client reclines inside the “egg” or chamber in a chair. We are getting great feedback thus far and continue to do research.
It was not easy to build this unit. The materials used are natural. It was a challenge to find materials that could bend in the shape of an ellipse to form an egg. Plus, we had to create a chamber that resonated the sound in a holographic-like micro-environment. Instead of hearing the sound from a speaker, you hear it in what I think is its natural broadcast. It’s super fun! Sometimes I hear the sound above my head and I know there are not any speakers above my head. The angles, the ratios and all the other concepts we use in this Harmonic Egg is proprietary information, but it was well thought out and evolved from ancient teaching and texts. The size of the Harmonic Egg will fit in a 10’ x10’ room on a diagonal, but it’s better to have a 12’ x12’ room. It took about almost a year from start to finish to create the first prototype that is now operational at Life Center in Westminster, Colorado.
One of the issues I observed with the previous technologies was sound distortion. In the previous chambers, automotive type round speakers are used beneath a thick foam pad where the client lies flat during sessions. There is cubic air space under the speakers, but I don’t believe it’s the proper cubic air space for the rating of the speakers. I always felt there was a lot of distortion from the music having to come through a foam pad. Our nervous systems tend to take distortion and make up “data” to fill in gaps to process information. My experience and research led me to realize that I wanted to get the purest sound and little to no distortion, hence another reason for the Harmonic Egg.
Let me mention here that lying flat for some clients is not comfortable nor relaxing. Clients have neck and back issues and want pillows and bolsters as props for comfort. In addition, some clients have a hard time rolling up from a flat position to exit the chamber. The Harmonic Egg uses a reclining chair and has been much more comfortable for clients.
There is also the issue of the music that is being played. Over the years, I have studied sound and how different instruments effect / affect the body (physically and emotionally so I am using both spellings of the word). I have worked with sound and lighting experts gathering lots of information to create the Harmonic Egg. When you compress a CD into an MP3 format you lose much of the quality, frequencies, musical information, etc. Compression changes the original intent of how the music was intended to be enjoyed. MP3s are for convenience so you can fit 1,000 songs on your MP3 player. It’s quite complicated, but easy to understand once you hear the difference. Based on my experience, the previous two technologies both use compressed music. The Harmonic Egg uses the higher quality CD resolution giving the body and nervous system a purer listening experience. There is a difference!!!! Then there was the investigation for the right speakers, subwoofer, amplifier and player for the music. Sound systems are not all created equal; the components have to all play nicely together. For example, there are surround amplifiers and integrative amplifiers and subwoofers that have speakers on the side and the bottom versus just the bottom or just the side. Speakers have different elements that make them relevant for different applications. The sound system was the second most important consideration after designing the structure and shape of the Harmonic Egg.
Oh, not to mention the search for the right kind of music to use and the right tones and instruments and frequencies. This is something I have been studying for six years. It’s important to consider: Who is the artist? What is their intention of the music? I learned so much about selecting music…testing and seeing how clients respond to the music and paying attention to the sound quality and frequencies. These are important details that effect / affect the clients’ response in the Harmonic Egg.
Next there is the light therapy. I think in the future we will get more and more sophisticated technologies, but for now we do know that different light frequencies are effective / affective for healing. For example, if you are a woman with a lot of yeast infections this can be due to an imbalance in the body (specifically the sacral chakra), and using orange light and the instrument of the flute can help bring that back into balance. This is the type of training I never received with the two previous technologies, but after studying for the past ten years I can offer this type of training with the Harmonic Egg. Many lighting systems don’t give you the full color spectrum of lights. It took me about eight months of research to choose the lights and the right type of remote to control the lights and light settings.
We can’t forget about the chair for the client while they are in a session. I searched the world over for a chair that reclines at the right angle for the best results in the Harmonic Egg. It also had to meet the criteria for size and comfort for so many shapes and sizes of clients. It was a matter of thinking about how the client would feel and how the technician putting them in for a session would be able to comfortably and easily support the client.
Every thought and idea for the Harmonic Egg was well thought out for both the client and the center owner or technician from the complexity of the technologies used, effectiveness, to the ease of setup and use, cost and comfort.
How long does a client need to stay in the chamber, the protocol? We are using 40 minutes and then the POWERFUL 10 minutes of silence in the chamber to integrate the session. It’s truly an amazing experience! I read a white paper in 2016 that came out of Feiburg, Germany. It described the use of deep relaxing music to help patients heal and they discovered a period of 6.5 minutes of silence helped integrate the healing, so I adopted that discovery and added a few extra minutes because I feel the silence is important and more was needed. If you have read anything about chiropractic care and its beginnings, there are accounts where the doctor was trained to ensure the patient rests at the office for a short time to help the adjustment integrate and set into the body. Integration of all these modalities that people do these days is so very important. I give the analogy of digesting food. You don’t eat a salad and then when you are full go eat a sandwich and then pile another salad on top of that… do you? No! You let the first salad digest and “integrate” with your body before moving on to a sandwich later in the day or the next day. Energy work is the same…you must let one modality digest before you “feed” it more.
The previous chambers had single sessions and sets of sessions depending on the condition of the client. For chronic conditions sets of sessions were recommended. That hits the body more consistently with the energy to help the body heal faster. A client can choose to go slow or accelerate the healing process. A single session takes about four (4) days to integrate before you would be able to schedule another session (there are exceptions to all rules). A set of sessions consists of a client coming every 4 days for approximately four to eight (4-8) sessions. That means a client would do a session and four (4) days later do another and four (4) days later another for four to eight times total. After a set, a client would take a break from any and all other energy work for three to four weeks. We supply you with a protocol for integrating sessions where we suggest dietary changes as well.
Finally, I did think about and tried aromatherapy in the room for the clients. The determination thus far is that it’s a bit of sensory overload for many clients. It might be something to use on a case-by-case basis, but as of now I am not using it. There are so many clients with neurological issues and chemical sensitivities I just don’t think it’s needed nor will it make the sessions more effective.
So, that’s the story of the Harmonic Egg and why I created it! If you have any questions or would like to learn more you can reach me via the website: https://lifecenter.us.
