Chinese New Year 2022 – Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year 2022 - Year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China for good reason. Each new year brings new energies and opportunities. The celebration begins the day after the first new moon between January 21 and February 20 each year and lasts until the following full moon. These 2 weeks are a time of welcoming and aligning with the new energies. This year, the Chinese New Year falls on Feb 1st and festivities continue through Feb 15th, 2022. Each year has a corresponding element and animal of the Chinese zodiac.

This is the year of the water-tiger year that holds a lot of promise for an exciting, productive year. This indicates a new beginning, a fresh start, and it’s a year made for bold action. The Tiger is known for its power, daring, and ability to do everything on a grand scale. 

This water-tiger year is in gear to be a faster-paced, more passionate year after a slower year of the Ox (2021) and a very challenging year of the Rat (2020). The tiger has been sleeping, awaiting his time for action. 2022 has great potential to be a year of change because of the energy of the tiger: brave, self-assured and ready to pounce. Individually we might be inspired to embark on new adventures, such as travel or moving, or starting a new business. Collectively, there may be an energetic shaking off of stagnation brought on by the past couple years of the pandemic. It will be a year of exploring new ideas, and not shying away from challenges. If energy is not allowed to flow (individually and/or collectively) there may be some restlessness or unpredictable behaviors. It is also important to balance the aggressive energy of the tiger with times of rest. Even tigers take cat naps. This is a water year, so the yin energy of the water can help to balance the fierce fiery nature of the tiger. continue reading »

The 10-Things You Need to Know…..

 

The 10 Most Important Things You Can Do To Keep Yourself Healthy In ANY Situation

by:  SaTerra Vishnu, DOM

  1. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS!!

This simple and yet profoundly important point is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSLEF.

The “WAY YOU FEEL” about Anything, your “First Impression” is ALWAYS RIGHT ON!!!….The most vital aspect to all of this is:

“DO NOT TO SECOND-GUESS YOURSELF”.  This is when will get yourself into trouble…TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS!!

 

  1. LEARN THE SIMPLE TECHNIQUE OF: MUSCLE RESPONSE TESTING” AKA…APPLIED KINESEOLOGY.

Another simple, yet profoundly important technique, which can be done by yourself alone or along with another:

TO FIND OUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR YOU, IN THIS MOMENT…

What Kind, When, How Much, Where, How Long….

This very simple technique will allow you to “step out of your EGO” tap into the unconscious power of your muscles, (without getting your EGO based thinking process involved) and come up with a clear, correct answer, benefiting you EVERYTIME!!…There is one caveat though…YOU MUST ASK THE RIGHT QUESTION!!

 

  1. EDUCATE YOURSELF TO THE TRUE HEALING POWER OF IODINE!!

Have you ever wondered why certain things are the way they are??  Why are most municipal water supplies ALWAYS fluoridated??  Why since 1984 have all the major flour mills replaced IODINE with BROMIDE as an anti-caking agent in enriched flour??  Why is HYPOTHYROIDISM such a MAJOR HEALTH CHALLENGE in our country today??

Did you know IODINE is the MOST available, powerful and natural ANTI-MICROBIAL (bacteria and virus destroying) SUBSTANCE ON THE PLANET??  It’s also food for the thyroid and pituitary.

These questions and many more are answered in the report: “IODINE:  BRING BACK THE UNIVERSAL NUTRIENT”.  This one report will offer you answers to all of these questions and much more….IT IS THE REASON WHY YOU MUST NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!!!……MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR FREE COPY!!

 

  1. PROVIDE SIMPLE, SAFE, NON-TOXIC, AND COST EFFECTIVE, HOLISTIC

FIRST AID RELIEF” FOR THE MOST COMMON, ACUTE, EVERYDAY                              HEALTH CHALLENGES, BY UTILIZING,

THE SIMPLICITY & POWER OF HOMEOPATHY. 

By having in-hand a “Homeopathic First Aid Kit” no larger than a “6 x 6 x 1” box and a small pocket guide, such as “Everybody’s Guide To Homeopathy”, (or a cell phone app), you can learn to use these simple, time-honored natural remedies to help keep EVERYONE you know (family and friends) HEALTHY and free from everyday health challenges we all face.

 

  1. SHIVAMBU KALPA… OR, MORE COMMONLY KNOWN AS URINE THERAPY”.                         A bit controversial for sure but….

Practiced for thousands of years in eastern countries such as India, this seemingly bizarre (although time-honored) therapy involves “the ingestion of one’s own urine” to stimulate the immune system to heal pathogenic issues.  ALL OF WHAT EXISTS INSIDE OF YOU on a daily basis, is present in minute and sterile amounts within our first-morning urine.  Since urine is sterile the contention is, this “highly personal bodily-fluid” contains “a complete picture” of not only what is happening within your system in present time, but this “Golden Fluid” holds within it, the “homeopathic, (“Similia SimilibusCurantum” – heal similar by similar”) tools to bring you back to health.  A more definitive article on SHIVAMBU KALPA can be found at: http://www.naturalselfcaresolutions.com/

 

  1. TWO OF THE MOST PROFOUDLY SIMPLE HEALING NATURAL SUBSTANCES, PROVIDING YOU WITH ALL THE ESSENTIAL TRACE MINERALS YOU                            REQUIRE FOR SUSTAINED HEALTH CAN BE FOUND BY LOOKING INTO                 THESE…

Himalayan Sea Salt and naturally dried Seaweed

both offer a complete compendium of the essential trace-minerals required for optimal health and organic functioning.  Since we are over 70% water and the percentages of “electrolytes” within us copy the properties of both of these abundant natural substances, it makes sense for each of us to ingest Seaweed and Himalayan Sea Salt to optimize the “metals” which make us function correctly!

 

  1. REMOVE THE “MEMORY OF TRAUMA” THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF THE  HEALING POWER OF CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY.

A therapy available for EVERYONE to learn, this subtle, Ultra Gentle Touch therapy helps to remove the “memory” of past physical (and emotional) trauma which gets “stuck” in the fascia (or connective tissue) existing between our skin and muscles.  The fascial network also is the structural material which holds our organs in place and also suspends our brain inside our skull.  This tissue network has its own movement or “Craniosacral Rhythm” connected to the “ebb and flow” of CSP (cerebral spinal fluid) coursing through the “dural tube” surrounding our spinal chord and base of the brain.  ANYONE CAN LEARN THIS!!  A vital component to maintaining overall health begin free from pain and emotional stress!

 

  1. THE POWER AND VALUE OF FOOD ENERGETICS” found in the traditions of: CHINESE DIETARY THERAPY an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine… 

Ever wonder why the traditional Asian countries eat so differently than we do here in the West?  The main reason is to remain healthy and in balance throughout the year…in harmony with the change of the seasons.  This is why it’s not a good idea to eat watermelon or pineapple in the northern climates during the winter!!  Learn the power and value of preparing foods based upon the “Five Tastes, Colors and Qualities” found in t preparation of ANY FOODS as it relates to “food energetics” and how this way of food preparation WILL BE INSTRUMENTAL IN KEEPING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HEALTHY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!!

 

  1. THE SIMPLE, SAFE, AND INEXPENSIVE POWER OF PAIN ERASURE!!

What would you give to have at your disposal, a simple therapy you can deploy by yourself or with another, to be able to “Get Rid of Pain Anywhere in Two Minutes or Less”, by simply accessing the point of pain and holding it.  That’s correct!!  ANY pain in the body, taken care of by accessing the area of pain and allowing the body to release the pain it is holding on to!!  There exists a 50-year-old therapy, ANYONE CAN LEARN AND APPY TO THEMSELVES AND THEIR LOVED ONES TO DO JUST THAT…ERASE PAIN NOW! 

  1. THE IMPORTANCE OF KEEPING A BALANCE OF EMOTIONS to maintain a FREE-FLOWING nature, and to not get stuck with the degenerative effects of one of the SEVEN EMOTIONS, which when unresolved, create organ dysfunction?

You might ask: What are the Seven Emotions? 

 

The seven emotions are as follows: 

Anger, Joy, Worry, Pensiveness, Sadness, Fear, and Shock (or fright).

 

Each of these emotions has a DIRECT RELATIONSHIP with one of your organ systems and plays a PIVOTAL ROLE in the overall health and maintenance of its related organ and their correspondences, e.g. the kidneys house the emotions of fear and shock.  Therefore, one can (be scared sh*tless), which means this overriding emotion of fear or shock can cause one to “loose their bowels or urine”.

Acupuncture for Diabetes

Acupuncture for Diabetes

More than 34 million Americans have diabetes, and approximately 90 percent of them have type 2 diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Type 2 diabetes, while its exact cause is unknown, develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or the pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin. Because of this, treatment often involves taking “insulin sensitizers” or medication that helps the body increase its sensitivity and therefore ability to process insulin, keeping the blood sugar from getting too low. Unfortunately, this medication often causes side effects, including weight gain and anemia. continue reading »

5 Acupoints for Anxiety You Can Administer Yourself

acupoints for anxiety

“At a time when people are so conscious of maintaining their physical health by controlling their diets, exercising, and so forth, it makes sense to try to cultivate the corresponding mental attitudes too.”

– HH the Dalai Lama, 1963

It can be easy to forget how much our mental state can affect our physical well-being. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, that connection is evident in the treatment strategies, but it is also true that when we are feeling bad, we don’t always think to look at our minds. It works both ways.  continue reading »
