The 6 Steps To Detoxify The Body Of Toxic Chemicals

It is becoming more and more known that certain chemicals affect a big part of the world population in an undesirable way. There have been many scientific studies that have shown a link between chemicals and some mental disorders  labeled as autism or ADHD.

An example would be the research published in The Lancet by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). They proved that many industrial chemicals, including fluoride, are lowering IQ in children and can cause autism and other mental disorders, as well as many other serious health diseases.

The experts named around 12 of these neurotoxins that can be found in our environment, clothing, furniture, certain food and drinks, such as: manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, mercury, lead, ethanol, arsenic, toluene, DDT/DDE etc.

A study in last year’s British Medical Journal estimated that perhaps 75% of most cancers are caused by environmental and lifestyle factors, including exposure to these chemicals.

Another report, this one by the Columbia University School of Public Health, estimated that 95% of cancer is caused by diet and environmental toxicity.

Some of the short- and long-term effects of these toxins include:

  • Neurological disorders (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression, attention deficit disorder, schizophrenia, etc.)
  • Cancer
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Enzyme dysfunction
  • Altered metabolism
  • Reproductive disorders
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Obesity
  • Muscle and vision problems
  • Immune system depression
  • Allergies/Asthma
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Chronic viral infections
  • Less ability to tolerate/handle stress

But the good news is there is always a way of healing the undesirable effects of these chemicals and the remedies can be found, as in most cases, in nature.

  1. Spirulina, Chlorella, Cilantro, Wheatgrass and Garlic – These are the top 5 foods that will help you detoxify of heavy metals and toxins. There are many ways you can prepare these, as a tonic or a smoothie or just take them as they are daily. You can find online many recipes that include these incredible foods. My advice would be combining them for the best results. Each have a role for specific body parts, so mixing them would ensure that our whole body is being cleared. spirulina-chlorellaDetoxifying doesn’t take a day or two, don’t be dissappointed if you are not seeing results quickly. Our bodies have been heavily affected by toxic chemicals, it can take up to two or three months to get them out of our system, so we need to be committed to this process. Then we have to maintain our body as free of toxic chemicals as we can following the next steps.
  2. Buy and eat as many organic foods as possible – In study after study, research from independent organizations consistently shows organic food is higher in nutrients than traditional foods. Research shows that organic produce is higher in vitamin C, antioxidants, and the minerals calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium. On top of that, they are free of neurotoxins(most neurotoxins are considered pesticides). Eighteen percent of all genetically-modified seeds (and therefore foods that grow from them) are engineered to produce their own pesticides. Research shows that these seeds may continue producing pesticides inside your body once you’ve eaten the food grown from them. Try and eat at least one organic meal a day. This, alone, will make a difference. People say organic food is more expensive than the traditional food and they don’t even consider switching to it for that reason, but with a bit of effort and research, you can prepare organic meals easily with the amount of money you would pay for traditional meals. I think it’s worth giving it a shot. Your health is more important than money.
  3. Avoid processed foods for the obvious reasons – It’s processed with chemicals. Most processed foods are high in sugar and high fructose corn syrup. People aren’t putting massive amounts of sugar on top of their coffee or cereal, the unhealthy amounts come from processed foods.  They are also loaded with artificial chemicals, including flavorants, texturants, colorants and preservatives.
  4. Switch over to natural brands – Brands of toiletries, toothpastes, antiperspirants, cleaning products, shampoo, cosmetics, air fresheners etc. These days, there are so many alternatives! You just have to do some research and find out which companies use natural ingredients and replace the old products with natural ones. For example, instead of using Airwick as a freshener, you can use  essential oils, which smell a lot nicer too.
  5. Drink more water and tea

    A glass of water with lemon in the morning  re-hydrates the system and promotes digestion, which will help the flow of waste out of your body. Tea is also a great way to facilitate that. Not only is tea full of antioxidants, it hydrates you (especially if it’s herbal) and fills you up,” says Ashley Karr, a research psychologist and wellness coach. “This means you will be less likely to overeat or eat the wrong things!”

  6. Exercise as much as you can – You literally sweat the toxins out of your body. The skin is our largest organ. Often when the other detoxifying organs are compromised, toxins will begin to come through the skin, showing up as acne, rashes, blemishes, pimples or sores. Exercise helps the body’s organs of elimination to function optimally simply by getting them going. Moving the body helps to circulate both blood and lymph. The more they circulate, the more the liver and lymph nodes can do the job of cleansing and purifying the blood and lymph.downloadThe digestive system works well and more regularly with consistent exercise. When you exercise you breathe deeply with your lungs. The oxygen that you breathe in travels though the blood to the brain and muscles. The lungs increase their capacity as the heart muscle grows stronger, and they produce and give off carbon dioxide as a waste product of aerobic exercise. The skin is cleansed from the inside out by the cleansing process of perspiration. Many toxins can be eliminated through the skin by sweating.

Following these steps will bring a lot of benefits on the long term and you will feel a big difference once you get rid of accumulated chemicals.

Theta Healing Technique – How Does It Work ?

What is Theta Healing ?

Theta Healing is a healing technique that works at the energetic, atomic level of our existence; and has been described as the practical application of quantum mechanics.

When you learn Theta Healing, you discover how to use the Theta Brainwave to reach a level of consciousness that allows you to change your emotional, mental, spiritual or physical reality instantaneously.

This healing technique can be easily learned and the more that it is practiced and explored, the more the understanding of it expands, as well as the healing effectiveness. As every other healing technique, it opens you up to a deeper wisdom that is already within you. This healing technique is an extension of what’s already within, it will just refine your own innate healing abilities. Those who incorporated the Theta Healing in their work, have achieved great results.

How does Theta Healing work ?

When you use Theta Healing, you connect to the Universal Consciousness, the energy of All That Is, using theta brainwave. This is the energy from which everything is created.

The Theta Healing Practitioner will help you identify unconscious beliefs that are holding you back, or that can lead to physical unease in your body. Many people may be aware of conscious “limiting” beliefs, fears or doubts that prevent them from achieving what they desire. However over the years, we have discovered that there is often an unconscious belief or program that is at the root of the problem.

Many people do not yet realise that their emotions and beliefs have a direct impact on the physical state of their body. It is not just what we eat and drink or the environment around us that affects our physical well-being, but also what we think and say to ourselves and others on a daily basis. Theta Healing can help you address the emotional and psychological stresses and negative beliefs and programs that may be impacting your physical wellbeing.

12 Strand DNA and the DNA Activation

For decades scientists have thought we had only 2 strands of useful DNA. They coined the other 10 strands “Junk DNA” simply because they were unable to determine the function or purpose of these 10 additional strands. Science is now confirming that these strands may very well have a purpose.

For intuitive healers and especially Theta healers this “Junk” DNA has a crucial purpose! The activation of the 12 strands of DNA prepares our bodies for the next stage of evolution here on the earth plane.

The DNA activation advances our inherent intuitive and psychic abilities and also aids our bodies in ridding itself of the many toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis in this modern age. With the DNA activated we also then have the ability to slow the aging process by activating what is known as the Youth and Vitality Chromosome. The Youth and Vitality Chromosome are the true “Fountain of Youth” found where else but within our very own DNA!

The Scientific Evidence

Curious to know why her technique was working, Vianna enlisted the help of a physicist who hooked an Electrocephalograph up to Theta Healing Practitioners and their clients.  They found that the Theta Healing Practitioners were tapping into Theta brainwaves. In addition, when the Theta Healing Practitioner began working on their client, the client also went into Theta. Vianna now believes that the Practitioner uses both a Theta and Gamma waves, and that the Client goes into Theta during the “healing”.  This is believed to be the major reason that Theta healings can happen instantaneously.

In addition, more and more books are now being published that confirm and validate that the Theta brainwave gives us access to both our subconscious mind AND allows us to tap into a higher level of consciousness.

If you are feeling drawn to this healing technique, there is plenty of information online and you can do some research, as well as find out the closest theta healing centre, so you can start practicing and see for yourself the amazing results of this healing technique.

Love and Light,

Sore Throat ? Here Are The 5 Best Natural Remedies

Disclaimer: The site aims to provide the best possible information on health, herbal medicines and medicinal plants. This information should not replace professional advice by a qualified medical or herbal practitioner.

Over that last few decades, the overuse of antibiotics has contributed to resistant bacterial infections and it’s becoming something that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) calls “one of the world’s most pressing public health problems.”

Usually, when we are having pains of any kind, we turn to antibiotics to ease them, which by now we should know that it is not the best idea as the use or more so the abuse of antibiotics may cause some long-term harm on our body.

A sore throat is often the first sign of a cold. However, a sore throat from a cold often gets better or goes away after the first day or two. Other cold symptoms such as a runny nose and congestion may follow the sore throat.

Strep throat, which is an infection due to streptococcus bacteria, is another cause of sore throats and tonsillitis. With strep throat, the sore throat is often more severe and persists.

With that being said, I have gathered five natural remedies that can help ease the soreness:

  1. Honey

Honey mixed in tea or simply taken straight up has long been a home remedy for sore throat. Scientific studies have confirmed this natural wonder works. A study of 139 children with upper respiratory infections, for example, found that honey was even more effective at taming nighttime coughs than common cough suppressants.

Studies have also shown that honey is an effective wound healer, which means it may also help speed healing for sore throats.

2. Salt Water

Your mother may have recommended gargling with salt water. If so, she was probably right. According to Student Health Services at the University of Connecticut, gargling with warm salt water can help soothe a sore throat and break down secretions. It’s also known to help kill bacteria in the throat.

The University of Puget Sound adds that a salt water solution consisting of a half teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water can help reduce swelling and keep the throat clean.

3. Peppermint

The main active compound in peppermint is menthol. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, menthol is soothing, numbing and calming for sore throats. Furthermore, a report published in the journal “Harefuah” in 2008 suggests that peppermint has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral activities.

Taking peppermint may therefore help to destroy the infective organisms that are causing the sore throat.

Menthol, the active ingredient in peppermint, is available in a variety of over-the-counter products for treating colds and related sore throat and cough. These include chest rubs, inhalations, lozenges and syrups. Some people inhale peppermint oil for treating symptoms of cough and colds, and as a painkiller.

4. Garlic

Yes, it sounds repulsive, and you probably don’t want to go on a dinner date right afterwards, but garlic is a natural remedy that can kick a sore throat right in it’s painfully swollen tush.

The reason lies in the garlic’s allicin, a compound that can kill the bacteria that causes strep and fight the germs causing pain and irritation.

Place 1 piece of garlic in each cheek, and suck on it like a cough drop. Occasionally crush your teeth against it to release the allicin- there’s no need to actually bite it. Try this once daily.

5. Tumeric

Turmeric

This yellow spice is a powerful antioxidant, and scientists think it has the strength to fight many serious diseases.  Turmeric works against a sore throat by inhibiting inflammation and provides relief symptoms like burning, itching (or that scratchy feeling), pain and swelling within the throat.

For a sore throat remedy, mix 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into 1 cup of hot water and gargle.

Ascension Guidance: Maintaining A Healthy Physical Body

 Nowadays, with all the chemicals in our food, toxins in the air and all other polluting factors, it is necessary to put some effort in keep your body as clean as possible. To do that, I’ve put together some information I received on my journey of discovering what maintaining a healthy body means in this new era in which our bodies are being upgraded massively to hold higher vibrational frequency – crystalline body – while bearing in mind that we are only beginning to discover more about our body original blueprint.

From a higher perspective, we cannot look at our bodies now as only physical, or only energy as they are in the process of merging on a very subtle, fine vibrational level. What I’ve come to realize is that maintaining an optimum health won’t be achieved without being aware of energy, of self and the flow of your body, so here are the three tips and aspects of body healing and nurturing I feel are the most important:

1. Listen to your body – Our bodies way of functioning is unique to each individual, they need different things at different times, they react “negatively” to different things and “positively” to others,  which is why listening to your body is essential. But what does it mean to listen to your body ? For me, it means bringing my presence in the Now moment and observing how my body reacts to different influences from the outside (food, people, etc), but also how my body reacts to my own thoughts and feelings. It means that I use my intuition/inner guidance to understand my body’s needs, whether it needs more sleep, more water, a certain substance or nutrient etc. Try not to judge as negative the way your body is reacting to different things sometimes, but try to understand the reason behind it, as your body is showing you them to correct and improve its functioning. That’s why I put negatively and positively in quotation marks above.

Most importantly, try not to perceive negatively the waves of light we are receiving these days. Many people are currently experiencing the so called “ascension symptoms” all the time now. That includes pain in certain areas, intolerance to certain things,  etc. Your body is showing you the areas that need even more nurturing, so when you are experiencing, let’s say, a migraine, your body is showing you the area you need to focus more on it, it needs more nurturing.

There are plenty of natural remedies for everything, available to everyone to smooth ascension symptoms. With all that being said, the pain comes up because  lower vibrational dualistic energy has been stored in the cells throughout time, so the energies that are incoming, flowing through each and every one of us, are bringing up the energy to be transmuted into a higher expression. Your body is naturally trying to make you aware of it. Whenever you feel pain in some area ask your team for assistance, ask for the block to be revealed, released and transmuted in the highest light aligned with your highest good. So it will be.

2. Balanced Diet – Try to obtain the nutrients, proteins, fats, carbohydrates etc. through the food you eat and liquids you drink, so eating organically is recommended. Your body needs more of these super foods especially now as the higher vibrational energies can be a bit tough on the body. At the same time, don’t deny yourself the pleasure of this earthly life, such as simply having a chocolate whenever you feel like it, just cause it has sugar, unless there’s a medical condition involved. Moderation is key, but this depends of each individual and how they find and apply the balance in their own lives. Yes, eating organically is good for your light body but also eating what you enjoy is good for the Soul.

3. Awareness – Most of the time it’s belief systems, limiting thought patterns, stress and anxiety that are making us sick on more levels, physical included. It’s not the food, not pollution, not anything, but the dysfunctional thinking patterns we hold towards them that’s either blocking the physical healing process or slowing it down. So release these, observe yourself in the present moment of now and transcend them because you can. There are many ways to do that, pick your preferable one. On The Power Within Us we’ve already posted many articles, videos and meditations to guide you through this inner transformation and more will be posted, just do some research if you feel guided to do so.

Be aware of your creator abilities, your unlimited potential and take responsability for the vibration and frequency you align yourself with and you align to other things as that is what you will create and manifest. Energy flows where attention goes.

5 Best Natural Remedies To Heal Insomnia

We experience insomnia when we find it difficult to fall asleep or when we can’t get enough sleep to feel refreshed in the morning, so we feel drained during the day and can’t concentrate properly. The causes of insomnia could be many: joint and muscle pain, restless legs, anxiety, fear, acid reflux, and pain from chronic disease.

With all that being said, if you have insomnia there are many natural cures, tasty foods to help you overcome that and I am going to list below. These natural remedies and foods can help tremendously on a physical level, as they relax your nervous system, however if your insomnia is caused by anxiety or fear (same thing), then it needs to be acknowledged, dealt with and overcome. There’s no hiding from it, the only way is through. There are many articles on The Power Within Us to assist you with transmuting fear, you can use the search button on the right.

Also, our mind tends to be overactive at night especially, so you have to simply observe the thoughts flowing without engaging in the chatter and but at the same time, calm the mind. Most recommended is to just relax and maybe listen to some soothing music, nature sounds and just meditate, just be. Make sure your room is not too noisy or hot or cold as that can make you restless and that the energy of the room is just perfect for you. Insomnia can be avoided easily if you take proper care of yourself and your environment, but if you’re already experiencing insomnia symptoms here are a few very practical and simple to do natural remedies.

1. Toast and raw milk – Studies have shown that drinking warm milk releases melatonin — the sleep hormone — as well as endorphins to relax you and encourage sleep. A small amount of complex carbohydrates such as whole grain toast or cereal will fill your stomach, relieving hunger pains at bedtime, and cure insomnia. Whole grains release tryptophan, a precursor to seratonin production — the calming brain chemical.

2. Two tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar mixed with 10 to 12 ounces of water relieves burning from acid reflux that may prevent sleep. Additionally, arthritis and fibromyalgia pain may lessen or disappear after alkalizing with this drink.

3. Tea – Such as chamomile tea, valerian or lemon balm. They both have calming effects and help with restlesness and anxiety. Passionflower and skullcap soothe agitated nervous systems and can help with mental chatter. At the same time, too much of these herbs can actually do the opposite, make you more agitated, anxious and irritated.

4.  Jasmine Essential Oil – Put a drop of jasmine essential oil on each wrist just before you go to bed. In studies conducted at Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia, researchers discovered that people who spent the night in jasmine-scented rooms slept more peacefully than people who stayed in unscented—or even lavender-scented—rooms.
Try a soothing aromatic bath before bedtime. Add 5 drops lavender oil and 3 drops ylang-ylang oil to warm bathwater and enjoy a nice soak.

5. Breathing. Inhale deeply through the nose till you feel your belly is popping out a bit and exhale through the mouth as if you are spitting fire. Conscious breathing can help tremendously in so many areas, especially relaxing our nervous system, muscles and mind as well. Repeat that simple breathing exercise for as long as you wish.

Another incredible article with useful information to help you cure insomnia is The Ultimate Guide To Curing Insomnia and Getting A Good Nights Sleep.

I hope you found this article useful and practical. Have a blissful day!
