The Importance of Glutathione and the Breakthrough Discovery RiboCeine™

Some of you may have heard of glutathione. For those of you who haven’t, glutathione was first discovered in 1888, but its healing properties were not identified until the 1970’s. Glutathione is an intercellular anti-oxidant produced in every one of the trillions of cells in the body. It has tremendous detoxification capabilities, eliminates free radicals, relieves oxidative stress and improves energy levels as well. But most importantly it has incredible anti-inflammatory properties, which is important because most health experts agree that cellular inflammation is at the root of most diseases that we face today. Your body is heavily reliant upon glutathione and the benefits of optimal glutathione levels have profound impacts on your daily life and long-term health.

The bad news about glutathione is that production begins to taper as we age starting as early as age 20. Many outside factors (stress, toxins, and lifestyle) can cause glutathione levels to decrease even faster leading to compromised health. Unfortunately due to its fragile state, current methods of supplementing with glutathione are ineffective. The NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) has been used for many years to help raise glutathione, but it has limits in how effective it can be.

So here’s the good news! Following 25 years of research, Dr. Herbert Nagasawa’s studies led to the breakthrough discovery of RiboCeine™. RiboCeine™ has shown to be 300% more effective than NAC in raising glutathione levels. This science based discovery is supported by 20 peer reviewed clinical studies. RiboCeine™ is a patented proprietary compound exclusively available in the line of products developed by a company named Max International. Their products combine RiboCeine™ with a host of other natural antioxidant herbs and extracts that I talk about regularly at Earth Elixir, such as Turmeric root, Milk thistle and others. RiboCeine™’s patented delivery method ensures that the active ingredients arrive at the cell fully intact whereas by comparison the contents of most off the shelf products are destroyed in the gastrointestinal tract. Sadly many people are still paying for products that they are literally flushing down the toilet, receiving little or no benefit from them.

Do you know family or friends that want to increase their energy levels, slow down the aging process, reduce muscle and joint discomfort, detoxify the liver and cells, improve the quality of sleep and improve mental focus and clarity?

These products are changing lives and we need to get more people to share the word.

Join me in helping to prevent disease and improve the quality of life!

These products are not available in retail stores. You can buy them through me or you can learn how to become a distributor and benefit not only from the satisfaction of helping others, but the financial reward of doing so. If you are already in the health care practice, this is an absolute must for your patients!!

Meridians Are Proven Physical Pathways

I have been in so many car accidents (and no I wasn’t the one driving) I probably wouldn’t be walking if it wasn’t for yoga, shiatsu massage and acupuncture.
If you have read my blog on comparing natural health therapies you know that Shiatsu is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine http://earthelixir.ca/2011/10/25/natural-health-therapies/
The body has several energy systems mapped by ancient sages that are recognized in cultures from around the world.

Shiatsu is an ancient massage therapy that has a lot of empirical and documented evidence. Massage therapies have been proven to give benefits to many ailments. The lymphatic system in our body can only be moved by exercise, stretching or massage, so massage is important for people that don’t get exercise for whatever reason.

Shiatsu is acupressure, which uses the hands instead of the needles of acupuncture to follow the same meridian energy pathways.

The meridian system is like an “energy bloodstream” and the pressure points or “hot spots” are tiny reservoirs of electromagnetic energy. Science states that everything is made up of energy including us.

The body is electromagnetic in nature. The heart system runs on an electric current system. The body is magnetic, just like the magnetic properties shown in animals to help navigate, migrate and connect with the earth.
These electromagnetic points are stimulated with hands, fingers, elbows or needles to release and balance the flow of energy, while giving the immune system a boost. The immune reaction induces self-healing mechanisms, while relieving congestion and blocks that cause pain.

The meridians are really one long energy highway that moves through the twelve organ systems, and have now been detected by modern technology.

Recent CT scans show acupuncture points just like ancient maps show.
Radioactive isotopes have been injected in acupuncture points that show threadlike tubules 0.5-1.5 microns in diameter and matched ancient meridian maps.
These meridian transmissions of light have also shown up in infrared photography as “hot spots” that match the acupuncture points on the meridians.

There are two other meridians that zip up the centre line of the body, front and back. They open more out to the environment than the deeper running meridians that travel through muscle and organ groups. The organ/ meridian systems are paired in the Philosophy of the Chinese Five Elements to show the dynamic connected relationships in the body.

I find all massage techniques really beneficial along with the healing power of touch. While other massages are mostly skin contact, shiatsu is done through a sheet or in comfortable fitting clothes if you prefer not to have skin on skin contact.

To balance your meridians you can learn to trace your own meridians and hold, tap and massage pressure points or get an acupuncture or acupressure shiatsu massage.

I wish you much healing on your journey.

    A Natural Bird Deterrent for Wind Turbines and Windows

    Windows and wind turbines are a hazard to birds who cannot see them. If birds are flying into wind turbines and windows why not stick bird deterrent spider web stickers on them? These kind of stickers found at the nature and garden store works by bio-mimicry. Bio-mimicry is a new scientific term and science that copies nature or looks to natural elements and systems to solve problems. Nature of course has all the solutions.

    imageThis web sticker idea bird deterrent works by simulating a spiders web design, which picks up a UV light spectrum that humans can’t see. Birds see this reflection or refraction and it acts a warning that something is there and to stay away. Spiders naturally spin webs in windows where birds will see the light refraction. The design of the web helps to breaks up the window reflecting trees, which the birds think is wide open forest.

    These bird deterrent spider webs have inspired a German company to develop invisible paint using this UV spectrum designed after an Orb spider web. The paint is visible to the birds but invisible to us. Why not paint this UV paint on big turbines and windows and anything else that will endanger birds? Even though the paint is invisible I think the spider web design would be cool to look at too.

    Instead of saying wind technology doesn’t work maybe it’s the design that needs  changing.

    There are many new designs that are less costly, more efficient, and bird and human friendly.
    Why not put sensors on wind socks to harvest energy? Wind socks of the world unite!image
    This is one of the many new designs

    How to Keep the Summertime Passion Without the Panic

    It is summer time here in the Northern hemisphere.

    image


    In the Chinese Five Elements summer represents the most abundant time in nature and therefore houses the most organ meridian systems. In nature the cycle of summer rules the fire element because it is the hottest time in the cycle of seasons.

    20130709-204043.jpg

    Summer is a hot, passionate time so the heart and the pericardium which is the sac that encases and protects the heart fall into this category.
    Other organ meridian systems in this summer fire category are sex organs, the circulatory system which involves circulation, and the triple heater or burner as it is called is the immune, endocrine and nervous systems. The triple burner is an energy system in itself and it involves the upper, lower, and middle sections of the body making summer an important rhythm to understand. If the triple burner, meaning the immune, endocrine or nervous system is compromised it will have a negative impact on other organ system rhythm cycles and therefore affects the health of the whole body. The gland that is in this category is the pituitary gland, which is the master control panel for hormones.

    Sometimes human characteristics will match the season element and are displayed in the way people walk and talk. People in the rhythm of summer have the mannerisms of being flamboyant, outgoing, and display an abundance of energy, spirit and passion. They are quick in pace, fast talkers with rapid fire movements and thoughts that make them dynamic and very attractive.

    The human time frame is youth, but age is not really a consideration it is just the best example of when innocence and care-free times reign in excess. This rhythm involves all matters of the heart. The constructive side is loving and balanced without cheating, possessiveness or jealousy. The destructive side is that people mistake infatuation for love, and the constant need for good times may easily lead to addictions. All addictions and addictive behaviour fall into this category. Allergies are grouped in this category because all allergies involve immune imbalance.

    The constructive emotion passion and joyful exuberance turns quickly to the destructive emotion panic and hysteria when there are no discerning boundaries or organization. People in this rhythm need to set priorities and healthy boundaries and make it a point to organize because over commitment may lead them to burnout or carve out negative destructive habits.

    The imbalances in the summer season fire element affect the organ systems that are grouped in this category ; the heart, small intestine, sex organs, and nervous, immune and endocrine systems. The pathology of conditions that involve these organs include heart conditions, anxiety, insomnia, IBS, small intestine digestive problems, endocrine imbalances, autoimmune disorders and sexual issues. Heart attacks or heart problems show themselves more in the summertime.
    Some symptoms that fall into this category are profuse sweating, a red-faced complexion, and aversion to heat or a feeling of being too hot.

    In this summer rhythm it is good to nourish the heart and the other organs mentioned in this rhythm with a proper diet with whole natural foods and herbs.

    Laughter is the constructive sound of this rhythm. It has been well documented that laughter eases stress. Laughter increases the activity of antibodies by 20% which help attack tumours and viruses. It is not about covering up issues with laughter but using laughter to ease stress on the body while getting a clearer perspective on problem solving.

    “As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it.” Lao Tzu

    The Chinese Five Elements is a very easy tool to use and is the basis for all energy work, martial arts, acupuncture, shiatsu, feng shui, natural therapies and has been used in all kinds of categories from cooking to astrology to military. The natural therapies of reflexology, energy exercises, Aromatherapy using designated essential oils will help manage stress while self-cultivating, changing habit field patterns and getting to the root of key issues.
    Understanding your feelings and how it relates to your body in these rhythms helps to identify areas that need focus to balance health.

    What season are you in?
