Radionics.

Introduction:

Radionics is a technique of healing using extrasensory perception (ESP) and an instrument. It is not directed at detecting the subtle energy fields in the body; those fields undetected by the normal senses but which support life and are essential for its functioning. The patient can be far away from the practitioner– the distance is irrelevant.

Radionics as a healing art originated from the research of the distinguished American physicians Dr. Albert Abrams. He was born in San Francisco in 1863 and became one of the most highly qualified specialists of his day. A graduate of the University of California, he wrote several medical text books and eventually won for himself a national reputation as a specialist in diseases of the nervous system.  In the course of his research Abrams made the startling discovery that diseases could be measured in terms of energy, and he devised and instrument which calibrated dials which enabled him to identify and measure disease reactions and intensities. From this work, called E.R.A. of the Electronic Reaction of Abrams, came Radionics as we know it today

How is Radionics assessment carried out? 

Radionics uses dowsing devices can take many forms such as:

  1. Changes in frictional forces or surface tension on a detector pad.
  1. Movements of a forked twig or L-rods.
  2. Biofeedback instruments with electrodes or transducers to amplify low level body signals.

Radionics treatment:

The Radionics practitioner uses his intuition and the Radionic instrument to observe the reactions in his apparatus and thus determines the cause of the disease. He then accurately determines the correct treatment to eliminate the underlying disease element.

Conclusion: Radionics is based on the understanding that every person has an energy pattern that is unique like their fingerprint. And that every part of their body, down to the cell level, reflects these ‘vibrations’.  When illness, injury, infection, stress, pollution, malnutrition, or poor hygiene causes these patterns to become imbalanced, then the energy is altered. This altered energy pattern can be read from any part of the body and treated by sending messages, with an instrument, to the body in order that the body may heal itself through the correction of the disturbed energy fields.

 If you ever get a case of sea-sickness and you are in doubt between PETROLEUM and TABACUM, which is another common drug for sea sickness, you almost always get that occipital headache as well as the sea sickness in PETROLEUM, and TABACUM people have not got it at all. So, if you get seasickness with occipital headache, give PETROLEUM every time.

Dr. D. M. Borland, M.B., Ch.B.

 For those who will be traveling by air for the first time and who have found in the past that the downward motion of a lift causes the stomach to revolt or for those who have experienced air sickness of this type, I would suggest BORAX 30 to be taken on the first sign of uneasiness.  The use of NUX VOMICA or PETROLEUM, before the flight will also help.

Refined Sugar – the sweet poison

Introduction:

Sugar was once called “white death”.  It deserves 100% of this title. It is a key factor in most degenerative diseases. We must understand its dangers and limit its consumption.

Dangers of refined sugar:

Sugar causes blood glucose to spike and plummet.   Unstable blood sugar often leads to mood swings, fatigue, headaches and cravings for more sugar.

Sugar increases the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Sugar interferes with immune function.
Research on human subjects is scant, but animal studies have shown that sugar suppresses immune response.  More research is needed to understand the exact mechanisms; however, we do know that bacteria and yeast feed on sugar and that, when these organisms get out of balance in the body, infections and illness are more likely.

A high-sugar diet often results in chromium deficiency.
If you consume a lot of sugar and other refined carbohydrates, you probably don’t get enough of the trace mineral chromium, and one of chromium’s main functions is to help regulate blood sugar.

Sugar accelerates aging.
It even contributes to that telltale sign of aging and sagging skin.

Sugar causes tooth decay.

Sugar can cause gum disease, which can lead to heart disease.
Increasing evidence shows that chronic infections, such as those that result from periodontal problems, play a role in the development of coronary artery disease. The most popular theory is that the connection is related to widespread effects from the body’s inflammatory response to infection.

Sugar affects behaviour and cognition in children.
Sugar increases stress.
When we’re under stress, our stress hormone levels rise; these chemicals are the body’s fight-or-flight emergency crew, sent out to prepare the body for an attack or an escape.

Sugar takes the place of important nutrients.
According to USDA data, people who consume the most sugar have the lowest intakes of essential nutrients––especially vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, vitamin B-12, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and iron.

Conclusion:

It is a pity that the majority of us truly have no idea how devastating sugar really is to our health. The world’s consumption of sugar or processed carbohydrate that converts to sugar has grown to enormous proportions in the last century. It is estimated that the average Western person consumes about 10 –200lb of this highly processed substance each

Vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin.

Introduction:

Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. It can affect as many as 2,000 genes in your body.  The body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. Besides getting vitamin D through sunlight, you can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.

Importance of Vitamin D:

Vitamin D is essential for maintaining your health. Almost all of us at one point or another have experienced low vitamin D levels. Symptoms often manifest as poor energy, insomnia, compromised immune system and mood imbalance.

Symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency:

Muscle Weakness is a symptom that is predominantly experienced in muscles around the hip. This symptom usually leads to the classic ‘waddling gait’ in adults.

Bone aches and pain.  Vitamin D works closely with the parathyroid hormone (PTH), required for maintaining sufficient levels of calcium in the blood. If you’re suffering from vitamin D deficiency, the parathyroid gland produces PTH in excess, causing the dissolution of calcium from the bones. As a result, you may suffer from pain that feels like it is originating from your bones.

Chronic fatigue:   Bone pain and muscle aches lead to chronic fatigue syndrome.

Mood swings: Adequate levels of vitamin D are required for regulating the levels of a neurotransmitter called serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a hormone that is responsible for inducing good happy feelings.

Sleep disturbances: Serotonin regulates sleep cycle. Low vitamin D levels not only affect sleep cycle regulation but also control the pattern of sleep.

Digestive problems: Useful bacteria residing in our gut play an important role in keeping our digestive system healthy. Unfortunately, lack of vitamin D is detrimental to these bacteria. So lack of vitamin D indirectly leads to poor digestion.

Other benefits of Vitamin D   It Can Cut the Risk of Breast Cancer, reduce the risk of Multiple sclerosis and reduces the risk of dementia and even said to control blood pressure.

TIPS FROM THE MASTERS…

 The condition, which most frequently calls for OPIUM is paralytic ileus after an abdominal section.  There is a loop of bowel, which is completely paralyzed, accompanied by reversed peristalsis and the pumping of bile back into the stomach. The patient is horribly sick and bringing up masses of bile – stained, rather foul smelling vomit and has an extreme sensation of abdominal distension. I think that is the commonest condition in which you get paralytic ileus, you find there is a history that OPIUM or one of its derivatives has been given before or after operation.

Dr. D. M. Borland, M.B, Ch.B.

Occasionally OPIUM is useful post-operatively when an old fright is presumably re-stimulated by another frightening experience.

Dr. Foubister, M.B., Ch.B, D.C.H.

You may find OPIUM indicated in that very dangerous condition, Strangulation of bowels. There are violent colicky pains and vomiting of matters having fecal odor.

Dr. E. A. Farrington, M.D.

When you have before you a body, which is doing nothing, no sweating, nothing, you think of only one remedy, OPIUM. OPIUM is just the situation where there is no sweat; no stool no movement there (comatose).

Dr. Pierre Schmidt, M.D.

OPIUM is indicated when retention of urine follows parturition. I have twice confirmed.

Dr. E. A. Farrington, M.D.

It is most important to trace convulsions to their origin. It may be found that these manifestations date back many years to the fright of the nursing mother, when OPIUM will serve well.

Hom. Recorder, Feb ’32.

OPIUM is a drug (in Homeopathic preparation) to be thought of for those abnormal children whose moral sense has never been developed, who lie and steal, and are heading for a mental institution.

 Dr. Tyler, M.D.

PARALYTIC INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION – OPIUM

Dr. Younan, M.B. C.M.

If a patient has had enuresis or other psychosomatic illness beginning after discharge from a hospital, it is worthwhile to remember OPIUM, if apparently indicated remedies fail.

Dr. Foubister, M.B., Ch.B., D.C.H.

I know of some people who are made absolutely sleepless by Opium in all sorts of doses, and OPIUM 30 has helped me in cases of sleeplessness, as often as COFFEA. My experience goes to show that whether the drug- effect is primary or secondary, it is a drug-effect and is good for prescribing.

Dr. Clarke, M.D
