One again months have slipped-by without a post.
HOWEVER, I am excited to share with you all some very useful and amazingly effective and safe methods of managing pain and healing the body.
I Personally have had experience using this modality for myself and find the results for me are significant and lasting. It is not an immediate "fix" and takes some time, but works very very well. My experience is with the program for Heart Support.
A little background on why I was using this. In 1997 I began having heart arrhythmia issues. I was at peak-fitness, riding my bicycle 200-miles per-week, and had been eating a vegetarian diet for almost 13-years at that time. I was young, 27-years old.
I lived with rhythm issues for a long-long time. Took medications that mostly helped, but never really addressed the core issue.
....almost 20-years later I started using Universal Sound Therapy, and noticed significant results on my cardiac health as well as overall health after playing it on my body once a day for a month.
I did recently end up having what is called an electro-physiology-study and cardiac ablation procedure done to address the physical constructs that were part of the wiring that caused A-fib and other rhythm issues, but I continued using the Universal Sound Therapy after the surgery and it is assisting in my new pathways and heart remodel in a very stable and healthy way.
So, I say that for the $, whatever your particular circumstances may be, I think it's certainly worth a try. Especially since they offer a 90-day $-Back Guarantee!
And I have to say that Dick Rhoads is one of the most gracious and fun people to talk to.
Enjoy in Good Health:).....and
Many Blessings to You All

It has been way too long since I have posted to this blog!
Over the next few months I plan on sharing some reading resources that I have been enjoying. Perhaps not all of them relate to the idea or reality of what we initially think of as "pain", but as most of you already know, everything in our life is related to the next, and how we think and feel translates to our body in a real way.
Our Modern world has a time-frame that is speeding-up, I think everyone can agree on that. Many of us are finding that relationships are strained and or are breaking-up. I have been though some of this myself and find that learning to tap into the eternal and ever-present source of Love is the key to working with not only mental pain, but physical pain as well.
Here is a book I highly recommend. I hope that any of you who find the title interesting get a copy and read it. I found it to be one of the best things I have read in some time. There are exercises in the back that you can do that are very helpful and correspond with each chapter.

My father suffered a stroke a few months ago and is doing OK t age 84. One week earlier the mother of a doctor friend of mine suffered a stroke after falling down, too much time went by before calling 911 & she is still recovering. please read below and pass this one. You could save a life.
Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue:
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A
SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. Chicken Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is
'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
I have done my part. Will you?

While many of us think of pain in the traditional modality of the physical, often what gets overlooked is at how we can experience pain as a psychological relation to ourselves; and often what can and does occur, is that our untended mental states result in physical-pain.
I think this book by Brene' Brown is truly worth a read. So much pain in our culture is a result of people pushing themselves to the limits mentally and physically; not getting enough rest and just plain old continuing to attempt to "pick themselves up by their bootstraps".....which we all know by now is not possible, yet many continue to keep on trying.
Feelings of lack and not-enough-ness is rampant in our modern speedy culture. This emotional drain is a primary cause of not only emotional but also physical pain. These is no doubt in my mind that this is true. So I invite you to watch her TED Talks if you have not already seen them and please do grab a copy of this book, read it and pass it along to a friend and loved-one.
Blessings of Health and Goodness to You All!

Many people are quickly discovering that the damage done to the body by the NSAID drugs is significant. NSAID's (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) also known as ibuprofen (Motrin) as well as many others (see below) are commonly used to manage pain.
The reality of what these drugs do to our digestive systems & stomach health, our arteries and kidney and liver is truly staggering when the research is read through carefully. It is amazing to me that these drugs are legal to sell at all, and yet it is one of the most robust sections of pharmaceutical sales in the world today!
As you may know by now, Ginger and Turmeric are fabulous anti-inflammatory agents and truly support the very same systems that the NSAID's tear down. Ginger has been reported again and again to actually repair the damage to the stomach lining done by NSAID's.
Again (and this will not be the last time) I will refer you to the Book
Ginger Common Spice & Wonder Drug, written by Paul Schulick.
However, this post is about another very effective Homeopathic by a company called Traumeel.
I have used their products for so long I watched the company change names from Traumeel, to Traumed and then back to Traumeel. I was never really sure about what that all was about, but I do know that over the years this product has been extremely successful at addressing everything from a bruised body part, to severe pain.
They sell a number of products, some internal and some topical, all of which work amazingly well.
If you are one that finds yourself reaching for Motrin or Bayer often, I encourage you to give this a try. The fact that Homeopathy's are safe and effective and can coexist safely with other drugs that you are currently taking is a real plus.
I sincerely hope this short introduction to Homeopathy and the awareness of how damaging NSAID's can be to your health inspires you to study for yourself and research what you have been taking and what the alternatives are that are healthier.
Below a link to a Mercola artice that has more research-links in it for you to begin to learn what you can. And I also added a list of NSAID's. fecome empowered to heal by educating yourself!
Finally -- FDA Admits That ALL Anti-Inflammatories May Kill You
NSAIDs : non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
Aspirin (Anacin, Ascriptin, Bayer, Bufferin, Ecotrin, Excedrin)
Choline and magnesium salicylates (CMT, Tricosal, Trilisate)
Choline salicylate (Arthropan)
Diclofenac potassium (Cataflam)
Diclofenac sodium (Voltaren, Voltaren XR)
Diclofenac sodium with misoprostol (Arthrotec)
Etodolac (Lodine, Lodine XL)
Fenoprofen calcium (Nalfon)
Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, Motrin IB, Nuprin)
Indomethacin (Indocin, Indocin SR)
Ketoprofen (Actron, Orudis, Orudis KT, Oruvail)
Magnesium salicylate (Arthritab, Bayer Select, Doan's Pills, Magan, Mobidin, Mobogesic)
Meclofenamate sodium (Meclomen)
Mefenamic acid (Ponstel)
Naproxen (Naprosyn, Naprelan*)
Naproxen sodium (Aleve, Anaprox)
Salsalate (Amigesic, Anaflex 750, Disalcid, Marthritic, Mono-Gesic, Salflex, Salsitab)
Sodium salicylate (various generics)
Tolmetin sodium (Tolectin)
Note: Some products, such as Excedrin, are combination drugs (Excedrin is acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine).
Note that acetaminophen (Paracetamol; Tylenol) is not on this list. Acetaminophen belongs to a class of drugs called analgesics (pain relievers) and antipyretics (fever reducers). The exact mechanism of action of acetaminophen is not known. Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the pain threshold, that is, by requiring a greater amount of pain to develop before it is felt by a person. It reduces fever through its action on the heat-regulating center of the brain. Specifically, it tells the center to lower the body's temperature when the temperature is elevated. Acetaminophen relieves pain in mild arthritis but has no effect on the underlying inflammation, redness and swelling of the joint.
Paracetamol, unlike other common analgesics such as aspirin and ibuprofen, has no anti-inflammatory properties, and so it is not a member of the class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs.
* Naproxen Sodium
" Naprelan contains naproxen sodium, a member of the arylacetic acid group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)"
"The chemical name for naproxen sodium is 2-naphthaleneacetic acid, 6-methoxy-a-methyl-sodium salt, (S)."
