My 3rd Healing Course: Large intestine, lungs, kidneys, bladder
This weekend was another marathon session spanning the whole day on Saturday and Sunday. It was dedicated to learning how to heal the large intestine, lungs, kidneys and bladder which ties in with the herbal course we did on the metal elements. I have not yet done the herbal course on the water elements which involves natural supplements, foods and herbs for the kidneys and bladder.
The healing courses are where we learn how to balance these organs using muscle techniques, determining what needs to be added or deleted from the diet or environment, finding if there is a belief system or emotion linked to the problem, determining what we are sabotaging in the process, clearing energy blockages on the corresponding meridians or chakras, checking the behavioural barometer, determining whether any of the neurovascular or -lymphatics need balancing, or asking the body if it needs temporal tapping, eye rotations or anything else and whether it is in present time or genetics and then going back in time to diffuse the problem then. I am not trying to confuse you, merely trying to get the message across that healing is multi-dimensional and not just a diagnosis and a prescription that will mess the body up further.
Emotions can be related to the self, others or the situation; they can be either on the physical, mental, emotional or spiritual planes. However, the body must be 100% willing to accept the positive benefits of change and to release the need for the situation. In other words, as Dr. Phil would say: “So how is this situation working for you?”. As long as people are gaining something from a sick situation they will not want to heal from it. If they are not ready and willing they will not make the necessary changes. This is particularly difficult when dietary changes need to be made or belief systems are challenged. For example: if I said that your sore throat was as a result of your colon – would I be challenging your belief system? If I then said you must stop eating salads and fruit as well as bread and pasta – would you be willing to make the sacrifice and be willing to accept that all you have learnt in the past – studied perhaps even – could be incorrect? Big question…
We learnt how to do a balance using the ear, which contains all the information in the body just like the hand, foot or eye does (holographic). This was quite fun and the result is that I have a poppy seed taped to two different points on both my left and right ears. Poppy seed has a sedative effect. It could have been a mustard, sesame or cardamon seed too, depending on the situation. No – please don`t ask! Luckily I have long hair that I can wear over my ears. One of them has to be on for 8 days… Remember to click on the images if you want to enlarge them to see more clearly.
Muscle testing for the large intestine is done on the legs – 3 different muscles. The acupuncture points of the large intestine can cause seemingly unrelated problems like toothache, sore throat, blurred vision, headaches, redness of eyes, deafness, aching shoulders, elbow pain, goiter and loss of voice. Candida overgrowth in the large intestine is the main cause of immunity problems. For more on Candida see my blog on metal elements and your health.
Muscle testing for the lungs is done by using the arm and using the standard muscle test to surrogate for the diaphram. Lung problems can also cause many of the above symptoms plus asthma, cough, neck rigidity and chest pain.
We looked at Dural Torque, which is where muscles are tested in the upper and lower body and the movement of walking is simulated by elevating opposite shoulders and hips. Apparently most people are struggling with this integration, especially after any impact and it causes pain and tiredness when walking – also inhibiting mental integration. This can be corrected, and this technique from kinesiology does the trick. Movement is smoother and easier after this balance.
We removed blockages and more with Moxa sticks. Moxybustion warms the meridians, strengthens yang, prevents disease, helps blood and energy flow and resolves dampness. It is a thick stick made from the Artemesia vulgaris and mixed sometimes with other herbs. It is burned like incense. My children think it smells a little like weed.
The kidneys hold the life force and strong kidneys let you live longer, have more stamina and drive and a strong will power. They hold the inherited energy from your root race and parents. The kidneys dominate reproduction and development and produce bone marrow which fills up the brain. Kidneys are responsible for strong bones, teeth and hair. If kidneys are weak, a shortness of breath is evident. Weak kidneys lead to hearing problems. Two of the leg muscles and the upper trapezius are used to test the kidneys.
The bladder is linked to the kidneys and the muscles that are used to test this are three in the lower leg which are tested by using the feet, and also the back and side muscles are tested. Feet problems and bladder problems are therefore linked and many infantile foot problems will correct once they have bladder control when they are older.
Our weekend ended with a discussion on fats in the diet, and I will suffice to say that margarine must be avoided at all costs, regardless of the fact that it may be endorsed by the heart foundation. The same goes for hydrogenated stuff. Vegetable oil that is used for long periods of time in restaurants and fast food outlets will give you Alzheimers, cancer and heart disease. My daughter-in-law is a chef and worked at a leading 5-star hotel near the airport where the same oil was used for a month at a time. This is just another good reason to steer clear of these places and cook for your own family. Use oil only once…
Speaking about this same 5-star hotel, let me warn you against eating out. Just because a place is more expensive or has 5 stars does not mean the food is better. Buffet breakfasts with food left over are a nightmare. The food, after being out and sneezed and coughed over by many people for a few hours, gets put back into the fridge and re-heated over and over… “Green” meat is washed in vinegar and served with a sauce… You actually have no idea what goes on behind the scenes when profit is at stake.
Well, until next time – please be open to the possibility that much of what you know will have to be “un-learned” before the health and vitality that is your birth right can be rightfully claimed.
