NUTRITION
"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." Hippocrates

"Food is the most powerful medicine you can take because you eat it every day." Jeffrey Yuen.

Humble CELERY is amazing. cooling in nature, benefits the stomach and spleen, calms an aggravated liver, purifies the blood, helps lower high blood pressure, and helps control appetite when eaten between and with meals. Helps renew joints, bones, arteries because it is so high in silicon.  

MUSHROOMS: the button mushroom reduces the fat level in blood and helps rid the respiratory system of excess mucus; has antibiotic properties, and helps increase white blood cell count, thereby bolstering immunity against microorganisms.  

THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF NUTS: Nuts are important for brain, circulatory, nerve and endocrine health. They are high in nutritional, healthy fats and in proteins and fiber as well. Buy them in a health food store, not in a processed prepackaged form. They go rancid quickly, so keep them refrigerated. Rancid fat is very dangerous to your health.  

 Here is a sample list:











BRAIN HEALTH
One in four women in the US suffers from migraine headaches.

Medical research has shown that one 30 minute session of any kind of bodywork once a week reduces headaches by 71%. Add to that a diet high in whole grains and vegetables and reduce inflammation, which is high in migraine sufferers.

Alzheimer's Assoc.: women who took an aspirin daily for five years had stronger memory skills than non-aspirin takers.

Research is showing that walking for just forty minutes for only three days a week can help prevent memory loss. Over 21% of Alzheimer's cases are linked to too little physical activity.

Gazing at flowers has the power to lessen fatigue by tapping into the pleasure center of your brain and releasing energizing hormones. (Kansas State U. research)


ACUPRESSURE
Acupressure once a week for five weeks will reduce insomnia significantly.

Acupressure significantly reduces stress. Stress is considered by an increasing number of physicians to be the root of ALL disease.

SPIRIT, ACUPRESSURE and PERSONAL GROWTH

“We are given knowledge of the energy system so that we may 
live more comfortable and joyful lives.”

Jin Shin Do® (JSD) Bodymind Acupressure® is a clothes-on form of Asian bodywork therapy using the same ancient system of meridians that are used in acupuncture, but with hands instead of needles. Jin shin do means “the way of the compassionate spirit,” and the therapy has roots in ancient Chinese Taoist philosophy, which holds that body, mind and spirit are all one interconnected whole. Thus, physical, emotional and spiritual issues are all progressively addressed in JSD sessions.

Jin shin do means “the way of the compassionate spirit,” and the therapy has roots in ancient Chinese Taoist philosophy, which holds that body, mind and spirit are all one interconnected whole. Thus, physical, emotional and spiritual issues are all progressively addressed in JSD sessions.

According to the ancient teachers, “We are given knowledge of the energy system so that we may live more comfortable and joyful lives.” They taught that in order to support the process of self-awareness, some places on our body, which we now know as acupoints, have been gifted spiritual energy.

The ancient practitioners named each of the many acupoints on our bodies; some of those names refer to the spiritual energy contained in that place. For instance, they named an acupoint on the ribcage Gate of Hope because it is a vortex where we can receive the heavenly energy that we call hope. Another acupoint, named Middle Palace, not only relieves chest tension, but also connects us to our heart, so that we to begin to experience our higher nature and an increased sense of self-worth. Other acupoints include Spirit Gate, Flower Covering and Heavenly Palace.

In a series of JSD sessions, as physical discomfort lessens and stressful feelings diminish or resolve, a sense of well-being, calm and wholeness sets in. Our attention begins moving inwards: the external “shoulds” and “have to’s” begin to quiet, and we are better able to connect with our inner wisdom, or shen (spirit).

The teachings tell us that the heart is the home of shen. (How many times in our lives have we heard that ancient wisdom, “Listen to your heart”?) Somewhere inside, we still hold that knowledge that spirit is a part of us.

In my career of more than 30 years, I’ve observed that clients who get JSD sessions regularly are more and more able to get in touch with their intuition or inner wisdom: spirit.
