Here is a list of the best resources I have discovered.
They will improve your health and life.
All of these are amazingly easy.
This post is the result of a recent dinner conversation with some friends. I was telling them about all the great techniques I had discovered which had been proven to help people improve their lives, and get seemingly miraculous health benefits. Later on some people asked me to send them a list of what shared. I was about to send off a bunch of emails and then decided that it would be better to put everything in a blog post. So here it is!
An important note: Not everything works on everyone. What I'm about to share with you has worked on various people for various conditions. Use your own judgment and common sense.
Explore these things with an open mind and choose the technique and ( very important) the practitioner that "resonates" best with you. My experience has shown me that the connection with the practitioner/ author/ inventor, can be as important as the technique. I'll say more about this later.
Also, there are two vital steps to change. You must be clear that you want to change ( being clear that you desire to want to change is also OK). And you must actually DO the techniques. Learning about them is not enough.
OK here we go!
By now, almost everyone knows of the benefits of meditation. Mentally it strengthens the ability to focus and accomplish more. It helps people deal with stress by exercising and training the brain. Physically, it stimulates the production of more neuropathways and produces beneficial hormones and neurotransmitters. Medititaion reduces the production of harmful and aging chemicals such as cortisol. And as a result you feel calmer, younger, refreshed, and able to handle all that modern life throws at you.
The problem with meditation is that it is difficult for most people to learn and practice. Also, the greatest benefits of meditation come only after years of practice. Most people I know have given up on meditation because they can settle down and focus their mind long enough to get any results.
The good news is that there are two techniques out there that can bring you instant results. With one technique you simply listen to a CD and the brain is automatically stimulated to produce brain wave patterns equal to those of a seasoned practitioner. Bill Harris offers this service and will send you a free demo CD to try it out. Bill is quite the guy! He is results oriented. He says that he has made enough money to live comfortably and is not out to make a fortune with his product. It works. It changes lives. And he prides himself with over delivering.
If you order his Meditation CD's you will get an avalanche of free products and support. There is no catch. That's just Bill.

CENTERPOINTE MEDITATION CD
The second meditation technique is for people who just can't sit still. Even sitting down and listening to a CD for a few minutes is too hard. There is a way to meditate and move at the same time. For you multi-taskers, you can even get quite the workout with some of the techniques. BUT I HAVE TO WARN YOU....you have to keep an open mind about what I'm going to share.
There is an organization which is dedicated to making the benefits of meditation available to everyone. It is headed by a remarkable young man known as Nithanyanda. You can learn more about this organization on their website www.lifebliss.org .
NOW HERE IS THE WARNING: Don't get turned off by the "exotic" nature of the site. Nithanyanda is one of the most practical, down to earth, people you will ever know. His mission is to help people learn practical beneficial meditation techniques.
There are a series of different techniques designed to help you at different levels. You will feel the effect immediately with each one. And because this is a charitable organization, the materials are very inexpensive. But again, you have to do them. Each technique takes about 20 minutes and you can pick the one you feel meets your current needs. There are also training centers run by volunteers throughout the world. Just be ready to go in with an open mind. There are a lot of multi cultural trappings that seem a bit foreign to westerners. But after spending a few minutes talking with any of the volunteers you will soon find yourself amazed at how happy and down to earth they are.
OK, so that was meditation made easy! Now on to other easy life changing things.......
Menopause symptoms can start as soon as around 35 years of age. For many women it is a long and frustrating war. You could be going through perimenopause and not even realize that it is your hormones which are causing your current health problems. I say "hormones" because there is more to the story than just estrogen. The body has an amazing soup of inter related and interdependant hormones.
There are all sorts of products out there which are said to help, but which ones are right for you?
The best way of finding out what you need is to get a test done. This will tell you EXACTLY what your present situation is and what you need to remedy it. Yes the test costs a couple hundred dollars, but I guarantee you will spend that and more trying out various natural remedies and prescriptions as you guess your way through a hellish existence.
A doctor friend once expressed his frustration that patients will refuse to pay for a test, but will be willing to spend hundreds of dollars in visits and products as they guess their way to the true nature of their problem.
If you are finding that your world is a bit wonky and wonder if it could be something as easy to fix as rebalancing your hormones, then an easy saliva test may be your answer. All you do is collect a small sample of saliva, first thing in the morning and ship it off to a lab. One lab my friends have used is Rockey Mountain Analytical. They even have a short well written book which explains the latest methods of dealing with Menopause. Here is a link to their book page and website.
There is also a website devoted to all aspects of hormonal health called Healthy Immunity which is run by a woman who does thorough research. You might want to check it out.
Some women sail through menopause with no problems. For others it is like being sent to prison and tortured for years. Other women are looking for ways to continue their healthy vibrant lives without fear of degenerative problems associated with the hormonal changes of age.
As for me....I'm just glad to have a happy well rested spouse back in my life.
Oh yes, I almost forgot.... If you are looking for the various supplements which can help women sustain a healthy life I recommend Puritan's Pride products. Check out my post on Vitamins to see why. But one of their products deserves special mention here. It has been a great help during this time. Puritan's Pride version of 5-HTP is now the go to product for the occaisional bout of sleeplessness. It has a combination of supporting ingredients which make it noticibly more effective. Here is a link for it: 5-HTP Capsules
If you want to compare Puritan's Pride products with any product you currently take, just type the name into this search box:
OK Now let's move on to PAIN!
ACUTE MUSCLE PAIN RELIEF:
You are in pain. Your muscles have locked up. You can't move. Your twinges have gone from spasm to breath taking torture. You can't lay down, sit up or sleep. You have gobbled half a bottle of pain killers and are nearly roasted to death by your heating pad. Can there be any quick relief available? YUP.
Neural Therapy. It is an amazingly simple procedure, where a doctor injects the same freezing compound your dentist uses into points which have caused your muscles to bind up. These little knots then relax and so do your muscles. Presto....
OK that was the simple version, but it gives you an idea of what is out there. You don't have to suffer and go to session after session of massage and chiropractic treatments for certain types of pain. If you find that your range of motion is getting limited, or if you are starting to stiffen up, or even if you are locked up in pain, you can get relief in no time.
You can find Neural therapy through a naturopathic physician or other alternative and sports physicians. Just call around and ask.
Now what about....
CHRONIC BACK PAIN,
These are successfuly treated with Prolotherapy. This is a treatment which goes back for many years but is virtually unknown in North America. The simple description of prolotherapy is that it is a dilute sugar solution which is injected in a damaged area. A beneficial inflammatory response occures and the tissues rebuild in a rapid manner without scarring.
I've seen many remarkable cases of injuries healed through this technique. I live in an area where no sport is too extreme and no one is willing to wait months for injuries to heal. Athletes want to get back into action fast. And even ordinary people want to be up and moving as soon as possible. Prolotherapy cuts healing time down dramaticaly. I've also seen it work on a person who was listed as disabled because of a knee injury. I've seen a body builder doing heavy bench presses a week after dislocating his shoulder.
Chronic back pain can also be helped by using prolotherapy to rebalance the ligaments in the back. Many people with chronic back pain have one side stretched, and as a result there is no support for the spine. This leads to pressure on the nerves. Prolotherapy tightens up the stretched ligament and rebalances the spine.
WARNING: Prolotherapy is a safe and fast therapy. It is simple and has no side effects. But, it should be done by an experienced practitioner. So when you call around to find someone to help you, make sure to ask how often they perform prolotherapy and also what body areas they specialize in. It is the skill of the practitioner which makes the difference.
What! No more pain? So what is next? How about ........
What if you could do a whole body workout in 10 minutes a day and not have to worry about going to the gym or even getting into a fitness outfit? Ya Ya I know...your sceptic antenna just went up. So did mine until I met the guy behind the cellerciser. I've already posted an article about this here. You can look it up by hitting the "exercise machine" label.
The fact is that you actually can get fit in around 10 minutes a day using the cellerciser. IN fact Here is a warning.....do not do more than 10 minutes for the first while. You will hurt yourself. The exercises are so easy and simple that some of you overachievers will be tempted to over do it.
This is a whole body workout....right down to the cellular level, which means that even the most athletic person will have areas of their body which are being challenged for the first time in their life. Also, the exercises are so easy that if you aren't paying attention you can quickly do more than you are supposed to at one time.
Click on that picture of David and the cellerciser to find out more.
The cellerciser is a great way for people with disabilities or other limitations. There is a balance bar available which attaches to the unit so that even blind people can get a safe whole body workout.
Why sweat and pay huge gym fees? Do you think your local gym or personal trainer is the least bit motivated to tell you about this?
POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER
All these things have been helped or eliminated almost instantly by the next technique I'm going to tell you about. It has various names depending on the teacher, but I like to call it The Monkey Dance because of a video Dr Mercola once made. When doing this exercise you tend to look like you are pretending to be the three wise monkeys.
The Monkey Dance is a very simple and effective exercise that only takes a few minutes. But if done right, those few minutes will instantly dissolve some of the most frustrating physical and mental health conditions.
Gary Craig has made it his mission in life to share this wonderful technique. He has set up a website which gives great information and support. He also has a free training manual you can download. And he also sells training videos for those who prefer that format.
Gary calls this technique EFT ( Emotional Freedom Technique). I don't like the term because it seems to limit EFT to "emotional issues".
This technique works through a network of neural pathways and helps the body to reset itself. The result is a smooth running body which is naturally focused on health rather than disease. This is the reason why so many physical ailments can be remedied. And here is an important point: The success of this technique shows that many psychological problems are simply the result of a misfiring of a neural network. Once this network is reset, the problems vanish.
I know you are probably thinking that this is way too good and simple to be true.
Gary has backed up the theory with amazing practical results.
He has gone into prisons and veteran hospitals and almost instantly transformed lives.
Many people live crippled and shattered lives because of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The therapies for this are long and not really effective ( I'm sure I will hear from all sorts of therapists about this, but really, have you known anyone who has been cured of PTSD after only a couple short visits?) I guess this is why Gary has focused on this area and has called the technique EFT. But he has not ignored all the other problems out there.
You will find comprehensive support for all sorts of life challenging conditions at Gary's Website.
You will also find links to therapists who use this technique, if you feel you need the help of someone more experienced in the finer details.
There is a great uTube video on the EFT site. It will amaze and challenge you. Make sure to stop by and watch it.
Here is the link to Gary's EFT site. Try the technique on everything you can think of. Why not? It is free and easy!
Remember, this article is about secret solutions to common problems. Don't let your ignorance get in the way of making a life changing discovery. I say this in the purest meaning. Even I shook my head over this one. But there is something to it.
Well there you are. Quite the list eh?
I'm going to ask you for one favor. Please tell others about these great healing techniques.
The easiest way is for you to send your friends a link to this post.
Just copy the address shown in your address bar and paste it in an email to your friends.
Also: Use the search box below to investigate any of the techniques you need more depth information on. I'll soon have a site up and running which will give more thorough information but that will take a while I'm afraid.
