Health Hazards To Avoid

June 20, 2008

So, what things are much of society exposed to that are harming them?  Refined foods, artificial sweeteners like aspartame [Equal], fluoride, vaccines, pesticides, herbicides, benzene, mercury fillings, cigarette smoke, chemical preservatives, microwave radiation, cell phone radiation, ELF radiation, GMO foods, pharmaceutical drugs… whew… we’re just making modern civilization a toxic waste dump and EM smog blanket.  Learn ways you can protect yourself by exploring sites like and

I use detox products like Waiora’s zeolites – see  and lots of green superfoods and organic fruits, nuts, berries, and seeds.  Moderate exercise (so you sweat) and sunlight and sea salt baths are all good resources for keeping your body active in cleansing itself.

Healing With Reiki Energy

June 20, 2008

Reiki is universal life force energy – it is Spirit, the essence of who we are.  We all have the power to guide energy to bring healing and balance into our being.  Having provided Reiki training to students in South Florida for approximately 5 years I have witnessed how exciting and empowering it is for people to recognize their ability to work with this powerful energy.  More info on these classes is at

Those in the Miami area are invited to healing reiki circles and to experience a reiki session, especially if you’ve never experienced this before.  Healers have used laying on of hands (either on the body or in the aura) for thousands of years.  This is what Jesus in the Bible is reported to have done, and is a tradition found in virtually all cultures around the Earth.  Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk, created a simple system to help anyone learn how to open themselves up to channeling and guiding this energy.  Anyone can learn this and anyone can do healing work if that is their intention – intention is powerful!

ADHD / ADD – Healing Treatments, Not Drugs

June 20, 2008

Attention Deficit Hypeactivity Disorder and Attention Deficit Disorder aka ADHD and ADD are 2 of the most commonly diagnosed conditions in children.  These are “behavior” disorders, yet doctors treat them with medications.  Does that mean that controlling people’s actions with drugs is the agenda of modern psychiatry?  What about exploring the factors that lead people to act in dysfunctional ways and help those persons resolve those issues?  Extensive research has shown that medicating children for ADD/ADHD has no long-term benefits.  I’ve worked as a counselor in Miami and seen children frequently further impaired by being medicated.  Natural therapies that address diet, nutrition, allergies, stress management, exercise, neurofeedback, brainwave entrainment, heart rhythm coherence, energy healing, acupressure, and homeopathic treatments all have demonstrated safe ways to help balance individuals who have been labeled ADHD and allow them to manage themselves in more functional ways without having drugs control them.  I have written an analysis of this at  and encourage everyone to carefully consider the issues involved.  Many ADHD labeled children are very intelligent and/or creative, they are those who would follow their own spirit and question misguided authority, yet these potential leaders and innovators are being drugged into submission and taught to regulate their mood and energy level with drugs.  We need to help these children feel valued and accepted, to promote their talents and help them ground themselves so they can focus their attention more narrowly when needed, but not lose the ability to cast their attention across a wide net to pick up on things that other people may not be aware of.  The more pressure is put on them the more they naturally (subconsciously) feel inclined to tune out the adults and demands that surround them.  Drugs just temporarily put a block upon what the subconscious is generating and confuse the biochemical balancing system in the body.  Ritalin, Adderal, Concerta, Dexedrine, Strattera, and other medicines used to “treat” ADHD have become common drugs of abuse – they don’t foster balance, they just offer a chemical cover-up and cover-ups are commonly addictive, because they involve giving power to something external to control our mood – which could be a drug, a relationship dependency, a risk taking behavior, or even food.  Learn more about how we can bring genuine healing to challenged children and you will be grateful for the time you’ve spent doing so.
