The Law of the 5 elements – Yin/Yang

Ch’i or life force Force Energy

This is the vital spark which enlivens us and causes all that we are to function. It is represented by this very ancient sign, the Yin Yang. The law of the five elements is based on ancient oriental understand of how energies flow in the body and how they are influenced by every aspect of life . Our emotions, colours, odours, season, times and much more.Female yoga figure in a transparent sphere composed of four natural elements (water fire earth air) as a concept for controlling emotions and power over nature.

The law of the five elements is rich with symbolism. It contains many ways of looking at our energies and our lives. It is a left/right brain challenge to think in terms of amorphous energies without shape or form, yet these same energies obey strict laws.

Think about male / female , but not in the sense of clear cut divide. The energies in every man has some female characteristics and the energies in every female have some male characteristics. The current ”correctness ” which insists that everyone is a person, further blurs the differences between the sexes which led to the French proverb ”Vive la Difference”!

Yin/Yang Symbol

This ancient symbol represents energy as it is present in life. In a sense there is no such thing as always and never, and something and nothing. Where we think there is nothing, there is often something , we just do not know how to observe it or measure it, so we say is it not there.

The light part represents the YANG energy, which traditionally is the MALE energy, but it is also LIGHT, and the SUN, it is positive, it is SOUTH, HOT and EXTERNAL. The dark part of the symbol represents the yin energy , which is traditionally FEMALE energy, but is is also DARK, and the MOON, and NEGATIVE (in the electrical sense, not the emotional sense), it is NORTH, COLD and INTERNAL.

Active/passive, Strong/Gentle, Hot/Cold are not judgmental in any way, only expressions of Yin-ness or Yang-ness. And observe there is a spot of light in the dark part, indicating that there is nothing that is all or nothing. There is no absoluteness.Our left brains, trained thoroughly in fallacies that there are, find this hard to believe.

Even thing we thought were stable, like the atom, proves to be much more variable than we once thought. It contains particles, and non particles that we cannot see but that we know they are there.

 

The Five elements are:  FIRE ,EARTH, METAL, WATER, WOOD

EPSON MFP image

The M.C.P.E logo in the middle represents the fact we are in the middle of a ”world” of elemental energy in which we live and have our ”being”, our verb to describe continuity.  Each of the Five elements is in a sense a loving couple or pair of couples who take care of each other. The male or yang organs are in a protective circle around the female yin organs to shield them from the outside world of external energies.

Balanced Health Vol 1 – Par 2 by Brian H Butler 

Are you drinking clean water?

                                       Blog Covers

Are you drinking clean water? Most of us don’t think about the water we drink. We turn on a tap, fill a glass, and drink.

But with more studies being done on bottled water and tap water we need to be more aware of what we are drinking. It is so important not to be afraid to drink water, we see dehydration now as a chronic symptom with clients. Unfortunately more people out there are confused about where they should get there water …

Do you drink bottled water but environmentally this is not good ? Do you worry about the chemicals in the tap water ?…. these concerns are real.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to find wholesome pure water. In a desperate attempt to find a way around the scandalous levels of poisons and impurities now found in domestic water supplies people are resorting to filtered and bottled water.

First we use look at the benefit from using A Water Filter Pitcher….

If you are looking for a low-cost water filtration for your home or office, a pitcher- style water filter is a great option. They can remove a number of contaminants from drinking water and significantly improve taste and odour. And a number of these kinds of pitchers also can make water more alkaline, a great benefit for overall health.home_garden_paywall_water_filters

When considering filtration options, it’s always a good idea to have your water tested and then choose the best filtration option for you and your situation. If you need to remove lead or other heavy metals, you may need to investigate reverse osmosisor other filtration systems                                                                   .

Water pitcher filters may remove some, or all, of the following, although efficacy will vary by unit and how often the filters are changed:* Chlorine* Zinc* Nominal Particulates* Hydrogen Sulfide* Asbestos* Lead* Mercury* Cadmium* Copper* Mercury* Trace pharmaceuticals.

Many models of water pitcher filters now not only filter out chlorine and other contaminants, but also change the pH of the water itself. By making water more alkaline, proponents say that the water is healthier.

Although scientists are just now beginning to research the effects of alkaline water, some studies suggest that there may be benefits from drinking water with a high pH. One study published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) suggests that alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help people suffering from acid reflux disease. In another study by the Shanghai Journal of Preventive Medicine, alkaline water may benefit patients suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes and elevated blood lipids.

A word of caution, doctors recommend limiting the quantities of alkaline water we consume, especially water in the higher pH range (over 8). Our bodies were not made to process such alkaline water on a regular basis, and doing so may harm organs and possibly interfere with our bodies’ ability to produce stomach acid, a requirement for properly digesting food.

Should I  drink from a plastic water bottle?  

It not ideal economically or environmentally to constantly buy bottled water only to throw the bottle away each time. And even if you end up reusing those bottles, they could still potentially be harmful due to the leaching of chemicals into the water.

Many bottled waters contain toxins, even if they’ve mixed BPABottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic,but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time. Some of these chemicals are possible endocrine disruptors. No one knows for sure what the health outcomes are

Those convenient plastic water bottles you buy at the petrol station or your local grocery shop aren’t intended to be used more than once. After multiple uses, the plastic will be begin to wear and the possibility of chemicals leaking into yourbottles-774466_1920 water increases. A recent study found:

Drinking out of a plastic water bottle that has continuously been refilled can be many times worse than licking your dog’s toy” when it comes to bacteria exposure, new research has found.” This is shocking information and we think if you’re going to go the reusable route, better to opt for a stainless steel or glass bottle.

Top Tips for drinking clean water

  • Invest in a filter.
  • Learn about where your water comes from and work with your local and state government to ensure its protection.
  • The researchers suggested investing in a water bottle that can be placed in the dish washer every evening, and to keep an eye out for stainless steel options.

What we do know for sure is we need to drink pure water on a regular basis. We know nowadays if we want to drink safe water we need to take precautions. It is no longer safe to assume that the water we that is produced is a clean product.

5 -minute Technique to resolve Phobia’s

5-minute Technique to resolve Phobia’s

 

 

Phobias are persistent, irrational fears of certain objects or situations that happen to so many people. Phobias can occur in several forms, it might keep people indoors, it might make people scream when they see a spider the number of people who suffer from different phobia more than 10% of the population suffer a phobia of some sort, of which there are more than 300, the most common being;

2

  • fear of heights (acrophobia)
  • fear of the outdoors or open spaces (agoraphobia)
  • fear of closed or confined spaces (claustrophobia)
  • fear of spiders (arachnophobia)
  • fear of dogs (cynophobia)
  • fear of cats (ailurophobia)
  • fear of birds (ornithophobia)
  • fear of wasps (spheksophobia)
  • fear of crowds (ochlophobia)
  • fear of flying (aerophobia)
  • fear of needles (belonophobia)
  • fear of snakes (ophidiophobia)

Symptoms of a phobia can differ for everyone. They can range from feeling unsteady, dizzy, lightheaded or faint feeling like you are choking, pounding heart, palpitations or accelerated heart rate,nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea, trembling or shaking.

Experiencing this type of acute fear is extremely unpleasant and can be very frightening. It may make you feel stressed out of control and overwhelmed. It may also lead to feelings of embarrassment, anxiety or depression.unnamed

As a result, many people with phobias avoid situations where they might have to face their fear. While this is an effective strategy to start with, avoiding your fears often causes them to become worse, and can start to have a significant impact on how you live your life.

Most of these phobias can be traced back to to the first time the person experienced the situation and found by whatever reason they were unable to cope, or simply put a negative imprint in the mind for life. Fortunately, most of these types of phobia’s can be helped in minutes. An amazing technique was discovered by Dr. Callahan a psychologist who found his work greatly enhanced with Kinesiology. Watch our video where Siobhan demonstrates this technique on Natasha who has a fear of spiders.

Not all fears are resolved completely the first time, the procedure is used but with patience, and within two or three sessions most problems are banished. Bear in mind we can only work by permission,ascertain that the subject truly does want to address the problem. Strangely enough, many people when confronted with the opportunity to deal with the fear, decide they cannot!

 

Improve gut health with Systematic Kinesiology

The digestive system is key to our health

Kinesiology properly used, is capable of being the most wholistic approach to natural healthcare. I was at a seminar on Saturday to learn more about about gut health and gluten sensitivity (a topic we teach ourselves here at KinesiologyZone and there’s always something more to learn). Even 2000 years ago, it was Hippocrates who said that … all disease begins in the gut. And as Kinesiologist I see a lot of people coming to me for treatment who have imbalances of the digestive system. While this is not always the primary reason for a client coming to see me – frequently it’s for pain, low energy, headaches, and or skin problems etc. more often than not, they will also have a digestive imbalance, that if not addressed will contribute to their health issue not being resolved.

Our digestive system is a key part of our immune system – which means that when it is upset we are more susceptible to being run down, more likely to catch whatever is going around, and decrease our productivity.

Since Systematic Kinesiology rebalances and revitalises the major systems of the body, it enhances internal natural healing processes. It is a simple, non-intrusive approach that enables us to get into harmony with our own bodies. The basics are easy to learn and the results dramatic. It offers many ways to help the whole person in a fully integrated way. Any healthcare approach which neglects to deal with all four specific aspects of human function will not be as effective. – Mental/emotional; dietary and chemical factors; structural and physical considerations; and life force energy imbalances.

digestive systemDiet is of vital importance and many people eat foods which actually feed the health problems they suffer from. There is no such thing as a universal diet and we are beginning to realise the concept we use in Systematic Kinesiology of “biochemic individuality”. It is vital for each person to adjust their diet to one which suits them individually.

What we eat can have an impact on others parts of the body, not just IN the gut. Thyroid function and auto-immune diseases have documented papers showing there to be a wheat and gluten association. But that’s only part of the reason. While you may have a genetic disposition, there is usually a trauma or event such as an infection that will start the early stages of disease.

The way we think and use our emotions affects our body much more than we realise.

Shock, disappointments, arguments, depression all have an instantaneous effect on us. The tests used in Systematic Kinesiology show dramatically just how upset emotions disorientate the energy of the body and its ability to function at its best. When we get stressed, our cortisol levels increase – and that has a direct result on our gut by making it slow down – which can result in constipation.

The body has an amazing ability to heal itself.

But if we are constantly blocking this natural ability, or don’t know about it and rush to the fastest pain reliever instead, is it any wonder that our lives are becoming increasingly stressed and out of balance. When I teach about helping the body to better health, and when we understand a little bit more how the body works, it can help us to look at our symptoms in a different way.

Learning more about how to test for food sensitivities, healing from emotional traumas, and balancing the body puts your health back in your hands.

10 Days to Thrive … Declutter Day Nine

Declutter – What’s in your Kitchen cupboard?

It has been predicted that over the next 15 years, our waistlines will bulge. The World Health Organisation’s estimation that by 2030 over 85pc of Irish adults will have weight problems is a sobering thought. There are still many hidden dangers we are hardly aware of sitting in our cupboards in our kitchen. The industry has learnt to present and modify foods in such a way that it may even look better than the real thing.

At the beginning of the last century most people ate fresh organic food, free from toxic chemicals and our eating habits were healthier. Sugar and sweets were still something of a luxury and most family meals contained all the nutrients. Now all that has changed. The food we eat today no longer contains the nutrients we need for the correct functioning of our digestive system.

Sugar is the sweetest poison of them all …                                                                                                         Stethoscope on a male hand holding white sugar. Concept of overconsumption of sugar and sugar addiction. ** Note: Shallow depth of field

“Sugar taken every day produces a continuously overacid condition, and more and more minerals are required from deep in the body in the attempt to rectify the imbalance. Finally, in order to protect the blood, so much calcium is taken from the bones and teeth that decay and general weakening begin. Excess sugar eventually affects every organ in the body. Initially, it is stored in the liver in the form of glucose (glycogen). Since the liver’s capacity is limited, a daily intake of refined sugar (above the required amount of natural sugar) soon makes the liver expand like a balloon. When the liver is filled to its maximum capacity, the excess glycogen is returned to the blood in the form of fatty acids. These are taken to every part of the body and stored in the most inactive areas: the belly, the buttocks, the breasts and the thighs.

When these comparatively harmless places are completely filled, fatty acids are then distributed among active organs, such as the heart and kidneys. These begin to slow down; finally their tissues degenerate and turn to fat. The whole body is affected by their reduced ability, and abnormal blood pressure is created” BY William Dufty

This is why its important now we learn to read labels. The manufactures now uses substances to ‘improve’ our food. Just some of these are artificial colours, anti-oxidising substances, preservatives, emulsifiers, and thickeners artificial sweeteners. Many natural foods have being overheated, pressed, cooled, frozen or dried. This all means vital nutrients have being lost. Our digestive system has not adjusted to such totally altered foods such as white sugar, white flour and overheated oils.

Today’s challenege is go to your cupboard today take out 5 items and check the labels and then decide if you are going to keep it or throw it away. Ask the group should you throw it away or if you think ‘no way’ I paid for it i’m going to use it no matter how much sugar it has let us know.

Solving the problem that IS.

Problem solving with Systematic Kinesiology

Problem solving with Systematic Kinesiology

Systematic Kinesiology is one of the fastest growing fields in natural health therapies. Not only is its approach holistic, its ability to be tailored to each individual client means it’s ultra specific.  It’s dynamic, responsive, immediate, and an accurate way to interpret what the body is saying.

The body has many ways to give us signals about our health – pain, discomfort, thirst, loss of function, rashes, swelling, tiredness, and many more. These signals don’t manifest by themselves, they are the result of a process.

If you have a health issue, let’s take as an example, a headache. If I asked what the problem was you’d likely say, “I suffer from headaches”.

So the problem is the headache, right? But is it really the problem? Or is it actually the symptom (or a result) of a process. This is an important distinction. Because if we make the mistake of identifying the problem as being the headache, then we could simply take a pain killer, and the problem is solved, right?. But is it?

When you take a pain killer, it may well get rid of the symptom.  In the short term that’s not a problem. We’ve all wanted to get rid of a pain and used something fast and effective to do that.  But the ingested drug doesn’t just go to the area of pain, it is distributed systemically, and can have side effects. Ignoring or covering up signals that the body is making long term, taking too much of a drug, can negatively affect other organs, such as the liver or the stomach.

A more powerful approach is to seek to prevent the headache from ever starting in the first place. For that we must dig deeper and ask the question “Why am I having headaches? Seek to understand why”.  Some causes are obvious, but what if it’s coming from something we’re totally unaware of?  By looking underneath the symptom, understanding that it’s the result of a process (daily habits, choices, decisions), we can then expand our options to be able to explore, identify and focus on what the real problem is.  Such as for example, a regular food we eat.  Systematic Kinesiology uses muscle testing to identify what’s beneficial to your body and what’s not.

When you can identify the problem

Systematic Kinesiology helps identify the problem that IS.

Health care is in crisis.  There are LOTS of problems – Obesity is the problem, Cancer is the problem, Heart Disease is the problem, Diabetes is the problem. And by continuing to focus on the disease as being “the problem” we will never, ever make progress. Because disease is the problem that ISN’T.

The problems are more likely to be found coming from a person’s lifestyle. It’s so often not even noticeable. But waht we do on a consistent daily basis has an accumulative effect. That’s both a good and a bad thing.  Overdo it for while and it has a way of eventually catching up on us!  Start looking after ourselves and it’ll pay off. The results, whether they be ones we want or don’t want, come from of the daily decisions and moment by moment choices we make about what to eat, how to move and what to focus on.  These actions, more than anything, will determines how I, you, we predominantly feel each day.  How motivated, how happy, how good we feel.

In the majority of cases “Health problems = lifestyle problems”. There are always exceptions of course.  But by looking for clues in the things we do every day, often without thinking because they are habits, we open ourselves to finding solutions in there.  Obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes are all preventable diseases.  Each year more than 10 million people worldwide are diagnosed to cancer.  We know that we should be eating more vegetables and taking more exercise.  Those two things alone will go a long way to preventing something that a lot of people fear they’ll get (because of their genes – which only accounts for 5-10% of all cancer cases), but genes are not our fate. *

However, people are struggling, are stressed and overwhelmed with modern day living. We’re being influenced and marketed to with lots of different, confusing messages, surrounded by fears, stress, “noise” and distractions, that we’re often so exhausted it seems easier to take the easier choice.  But if we can take a moment to reflect on where we’re at, get the help of a Systematic Kinesiology professional who has another perspective.

It is said that to truly heal, the patient must have faith, confidence and belief in both the practitioner and in the modality/therapy. For healing to take place, the practitioner is a vital part of the process. It’s a case of, you can’t do it alone. Instinctively we have a sense when something is wrong. But it can seem confusing because of the often conflicting messages about what’s healthy and what’s not.

But your body holds the key to its own health, to optimal health. What Systematic Kinesiology offers is a powerful tool to finding the root causes, and unlocking the answers to what the body needs to create the right environment to self-heal.  The body already knows how to heal – if you cut yourself you don’t have to instruct the body to go fix it.  It knows.

So I’ll say it again – Systematic Kinesiology helps identify the problem that IS.

For you.

Which may be different to someone else who has a similar symptom.

Everyone is different.

Unique.

Systematic Kinesiology respects that.

Systematic Kinesiology is an integrated holistic approach to working with individuals who seek to better understand how their body works. They want to feel empowered to know what to do to be healthy, and how to live a long, vibrant and healthy life.  Practitioners are trained in using muscle testing as a communication tool that reveals imbalances (problems) as well as solutions.  Session are tailored to each client. Systematic Kinesiology is truly individualised healthcare.

“The most accurate diagnosing tool you can have
is in your office — YOUR PATIENT — with innate intelligence the body language
combined with muscle testing.” — Dr. George J. Goodheart, Jr.
