Can you Regenerate Atrophied Areas of the Body with Herbs?

This week I was asked a question:

Is there something that can be done to recover an atrophied optic nerve? Can herbs help?

My answer can be applied to all atrophy in the body.

Have I actually seen this work? Yes I have.

There was a woman who had atrophy in various parts of the body after a severe stroke. I have personally seen the power of herbs combined with exercises that increase blood circulation to the area. I have also seen atrophy caused by malnutrition in the developing years, reversed. I have also seen atrophy caused by sitting at a desk job for 40 years, reversed.

I have also seen again and again that while doing so results in some benefits, it is ultimately the overall health and vitality levels of the body that decide what happens. A healthy body will heal and recover its atrophied parts on its own.

It’s part of life – that some parts of us atrophy for a while, and then we need that part again and the body gets it working again.

So in order of importance here are the three things one can do to recover an atrophied part of the body.

Herbs to increase heart beat strength and support blood cell making

Some months ago I wrote about how the quality of blood cells being made in the body lessens drastically when faced with shock, trauma or a life not satisfying to the spirit.

I recommended the simple exercise where you feel your heart beat. Exercises of awareness are so simple, yet their power is amazing and doing them is so worth the few minutes they take.

When you look at it very close, the core of blood building function is a strong robust balanced heart beat. Support heart beat strength and you’re healing everything everywhere. The heart beat is what pushes life all around.

Now here is an example of something like the ultimate blood building function rehab tonic. I made it recently for a child recovering from heavy radiation. Radiation is a shock and the anemia it produces is one of the hardest types of anemia to treat as the very blood making function of the body is compromised.

This recipe provides for very serious intense blood building rehabilitation. It works almost immediately and can change the homeostasis of the body around quite drastically over a few weeks when taken regularly.

Where a person has not been able to respond to other medicine due to extreme weakness, this mix will provide the SOS help required to make the person rally.

In any emergency where is weakness caused by shock of any sort, this would be excellent first aid.

The herbs in this recipe are:

Mountain Ebony or Bauhinia Variegata
Rose Petals
Rosehips
Papaya leaf (young)
Pomegranate leaf and bud
Quis Qualis Indica – leaves and flowers
In Apple Cider Vinergar and Black Plum Vinegar

I make all of these together because the combination works so well and I use it for so many conditions, I don’t have to mix the ingredients in individually all over again every time I make it for someone.

Herbs to relax Heart Muscle Tension and release PTSD patterns

When we go through traumatic episodes one too many times, we learn to hold some parts of us tight, sometimes so tight that those parts of us, let’s say an area of the heart muscle for example, that the place becomes hard, taut, and even develops scar tissue or adhesions over the years.

These are notoriously hard to discover by xray or other methods because they aren’t so easy to see. But they are felt indeed and can cause a lot of pain and discomfort.

Very often, it is years before we notice exactly where we’ve got a hard part of an organ wall. By then the nerves and muscles in the area have fallen into the habit of being tense and staying taut, compromising blood circulation, causing that organ to be sluggish or hyperactive and/or malfunction.

Relaxing the internal organs is not as easily achieved as say – relaxing your shoulders – simply because the nervous impulses that manage these organs, are not so much controlled by the voluntary nervous system as they are by the involuntary, by the limbic system, ie., by those parts of us that are not as quick wired to our intention as our fingers or our legs.

For example, we can’t relax the heart muscle by making it go limp as we can do with our hand.

The heart needs for those things which keep it tense, to stop being there, and then it will relax. The same goes for the uterus, the liver, the kidneys, the spleen, the brain too, all the glands.

For a long term cramp, taut area, scar wall of an organ to be healed, the atmosphere of the body will have to change. What’s causing the tension will have to go and stay gone.

The HABIT of holding the tension in that area will to go.

Now, there are three major muscle tension trigger areas in the body and these work as relaxers as well. Modern science does not acknowledge them but every human instinctively knows them, because they are so closely connected to our survival and well-being on a soul level.

The tongue, the sexual organs and the heart or chest or breast region.

What the palms are to the brain, the way they and the face reflect the brain, so the tongue, the sexual organs and the breasts or chest area reflect the condition of the functional internal organs of the body.

If you went to a neurologist, a brain doctor, they could tell just by looking at your face – where it droops, how it aligns and so on, a lot about the state of the brain. Recording nerve impulse in the fingers is a famous lie detection method because of how quickly what’s happening in the brain shows up in the fingers, twitching them, moving them.

In the same way, our internal organ function, the ‘working’ of our body, our ‘life’ function – that which keeps us living, can be seen from the tongue and nose (imagine them as one instead of two separate things), the sexual organs and the heart area and can be healed from there too.

The internal organs that are in trauma can be relaxed and healed by massaging these areas consistently with relaxing essential oils.

For example – Cypress, Rose, Spikenard are famous relaxers but whichever smells relax you, whichever is the fragrance that makes you go “aaahhhhh” that’s the one you need.

Believe it or not, for those with severe heart pain, the smell of a chemical called ‘Ammonium Nitrate’ that wouldn’t be called ‘pleasant’ in any sense of the word, gives almost instant relief.

Some like the smell of lanolin or sheep skin oil, some petrol, some diesel and other smells others would consider repelling.

However, when the trauma is a long term matter, things go the other way around, and these areas can be healed and relaxed only when the organs inside relax.

In these situations herbs taken internally can make the biggest fastest difference.

We’re talking long term tension, we’re talking about cells grown tight against each other like soldiers in a battle formation, the aim being to prevent the enemy from getting past.

We’re actually talking about a sort of internal civil resistance.

Let me give you a simple example.

A person exposed to repeated betrayal by those close to them, develops a heart cramp – that mostly imperceptible reaction we have to emotional shock and pain, that over time results in the back of the heart muscle wall, hardening.

This person experiences in their life an emotional condition where they can be friendly and loving but there’s a point at which they switch off and cannot go further into intimacy with someone because there’s a wall there.

Quite literally, their heart muscle isn’t able to expand fully.

This results in various manifestations in their sexual activity, where they cannot have an orgasm ‘smoothly’ or ‘normally’ but need violent sensory pushing to break through the resistance. This naturally isn’t compatible with their real emotion and therefore they are in a state of split. They cannot hold the emotional thread from interaction to intimacy and to orgasm. It breaks off at the wall. If they are to have an orgasm at all now, they’ll have to break the wall with shock, terror, violence.

This is a common situation for those with PTSD of any sort, for some worse than others.

Becoming aware of the wall and consciously allowing love to get through is not as easy as it sounds, yet every day all over the world it happens.

Love heals everything, conquers everything.

On this journey however, there are some very very special herbs that can help. Nature has made these herbs in a beautiful state of consciousness that is immune and resistant to pain and trauma patterns.

There are two ways of relieving internal emotional and energetic pain and tension:

1) Experience out the pain.
2) Be in a state of consciousness that’s above the pain barrier

Exercise the Heart Muscle – Hunter’s Brain Stimulation

The more robust our heart is, the more robust muscle tissue is the body. One of the first signs of a weakening or atrophying heart muscle is a sort of flabbiness or loss of tone and strength of muscle elsewhere in the body.

Just as exercise strengthens muscle, so it strengthens the heart.

‘Hunter’s Brain’ is what my Granddad called the 5 points at which the heart and with it life energy is stimulated to heal and strengthen the heart and with it all the muscles of the body.

The Hunter is the opposite of the hospital bed patient.

If you want to heal your heart, a point comes when you have to stimulate it gently into working again, rather than keeping it in an un-stimulated ‘safe’ state – that isn’t really safe because it will get worse without exercise.

Yeast will tell you the time. (eBook – The Spirit of Yeast)

“Yeast will tell you the time,” my Granddad John Waltham said to me.

He started me off a journey that hasn’t ended, a journey into understanding the magic of my own body, host to millions of these little living beings with their own spirit, choice and memory, affecting my health, my moods, my smell, my Life.

An female emanation of our Mother Earth, Yeast manages the times of our life, like the moon calls the tides.

The wrong Yeast was what the Israelites had to put aside in Egypt so they could change from slaves into conquerors. The right Yeast on a bunch of grapes told them they’d come home.

A lot has been written about the physical properties of Yeast. Good yeast is required for healthy digestion, the foundation of health in the body as we depend on receiving nutrients from food and drink. Yeast imbalance however, Candida for example is a major cause of systemic imbalance and ill effects that go far beyond any one particular disease’s name.

A quick internet search on the subject will show you just how important it is that Yeast stay balanced in our bodies.

This book will not attempt to show how with some simple changes in how we treat Yeast, we can radically change our health, metabolism and life experience for the better.

In this book:
Yeast is Consciousness
Yeast as Time-Keeper
Bad Yeasts and Diabetes
The Illness Consciousness
The Passover Story: Leaving the Slave Consciousness Behind
Enforcing a Change of Consciousness to Sustain Healing
Yeast carries memory and habit.

Herbs for Overworked Brains

There are some people who never have brain burnouts; calm people who fall in the categories of low intelligence and the very intelligent. If you’re one of the lucky ones this article is not for you.

This is for those who tend to use their brains in manic ways to the point where they feel burned out, their heads literally over heated.

Brain stress and burnout isn’t caused just by overthinking. The brain can get wound up and overworked hormonally, through the effect of drugs that stimulate the glands in the brain. The brain can get over-heated dealing with the sudden demands of the body in dealing with hormonal changes like puberty, pregnancy, even changes in the temperature around us.

Spring fever, the onset of summer, the brain freeze of winter coming on quicker than usual – all these can over-work the brain.

Brain stress is also caused by compromised blood circulation such as caused a heavy meal or a sluggish liver.

Let’s get straight to it.

My Top 7 Herbs for Overworked Brains

 

5 Herbs to Release Gut Tension & Help Your Body Process Medicines

A while ago a man told me of how he had a problem with his eyes for four decades resulting in progressive loss of vision, headaches – sometimes so bad he almost went blind with the pain. The doctors had suspected a tumor in the brain but found nothing.

This person took my advice on herbs to rehabilitate the digestive system as his body swung between chronic constipation and bouts of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and diarrhea.

It turned out that the first effect of the herbs was a massive reduction in the tension around his eyes and the headaches. He went from about four episodes of headaches and blinding a day to two in a month and then to one every week in four months.

This is one example of the ways gut tension can affect the rest of the body.

Our entire system relies on the area around our core working properly. This core area is as densely populated with nerves and nerve endings as the brain and what happens here, second by second affects the brain and the rest of the system.

There are three major causes of gut tension and hypersensitivity – which are really the same thing – the gut being irritated and reacting in an extreme way.

1) Mild Chronic Poisoning
2) Over-eating
3) Energetic assault or Shock

1) Mild Chronic Poisoning
A lot of the time we think that if we ate something one day and the body did not react to it violently, that means it’s ok for us. It isn’t always OK. There are foods that slowly increase the levels of a poison in the gut, which deposit things in the lining of the digestive system. At one point the body starts reacting violently because the situation has reached a point where if cleaning up doesn’t happen soon enough, one or other of the organs could be seriously affected.

Digestive extremes therefore should be first dealt with by taking out of your diet everything but the simplest home cooked food. You then do gentle detoxification with foods like horseradish, fenugreek seed tea, nettle tea – just herbs and vegetables that support a clean up – nothing extreme.

2) Over-eating

Over-eating caused by anxiety and other emotional causes is something that makes people feel helpless. How do you stop when you’re in the habit for so long?

For a lot of people, one simple thing works. Nutrition. You see, nearly everyone can trace the onset of their over-eating to a time around which they either didn’t have enough food or didn’t have food that was satisfying – like food after which you feel, “Yes, now I’m full and satisfied and can get on to other things now.”

Not being satisfied nutritionally is one of the causes of anxiety and panic attacks as it makes the person prone to emotional extremes.

This results in a whole lot of other problems in the body all the way to heavy menstrual bleeding, hair loss, chronic fatigue, mental slowing and so on.

Adding a source of natural fat to the diet very often begins the process of healing.

It’s not an overnight thing, but if you sit down and think of what you really feel like having and decide to put aside what’s in your head about what you should have, and choose what your gut wants to have instead, you’ll be surprised at how you can go from unsatisfied to satisfied and how that can change your body and your life for the better.

3) Energetic assault or Shock

In our times, there is nearly always some or the other attempt to drain a human’s energy always going on.

Television and media, even books, are consciously aimed at emotional energy manipulation, trying to cause shock to get attention. This is what they now even train students of the media and communication to do.

There’s a lot of competition out there to get your attention, your emotional energy.

Now, when a body in the course of a natural life experiences shock of some kind, the system recognizes it and deals with it.

However, if the shock is not dealt with, perhaps because the person did not realize what was happening at the time, or the person was too busy mentally with some other task, then the nerves of the body and especially around the gut, clench up and don’t relax, waiting for us to resolve the issue.

This sort of shock is constantly delivered by news and other media as well as stress and trauma hormones in commonly available foods and even medicines.

I have found treating the body for recovery from shock lessens the need for treatment of other sorts as it allows the body to accept other treatment and respond well to other medicine and lifestyle healing.

Here are my 5 favorite herbs that help release gut tension and support recovery from gut shock

Increase Nerve Force with Herbs, Food & Lifestyle Changes

One of the first signs of the process commonly called ‘premature aging’, is simply a decrease in nerve force.

Nerve force, very simply is the energy with which electrical signals go from one nerve cell to another.

When we find ourselves reacting to something slowly and with tiredness it means our nerve force is less.

If we are not able to react to sensory stimulation and enjoy things, our nerve force is less.

It is literally the speed at which the communication between the parts of the body is happening.

When our nerve force is low, the nervous signals feel like they’re going at the speed of postal mail versus email.

While there are many causes of it, from lack of enough sleep to fatigue caused by repetitive stress, to emotional shock caused by loss or grief, the human body is capable of adapting to a situation and maintaining nerve force.

A lot of the time food, drink, even herbs and other holistic treatments are used to artificially increase nerve force through adrenaline shocking the body, stressing the kidneys and surging the nervous system. The body reacts with chronic fatigue as it resists what it considers artificial stimulation as not something in the body’s memory of what’s natural.

For example, one such substance is MSG or mono-sodium glutamate, which is used in nearly all processed foods for its ability to increase nerve force giving a sort of quick but short-lived energy surge making the person eating become suddenly able to taste better. It increases nerve force so the report from the sense organs goes quickly to the brain and the brain says, “Yes, it’s yummy.” If you’ve ever craved eating something processed or that’s not cooked at home, chances are you’re craving MSG. But its list of harmful effects are legendary.

There are other additives to increase nerve force that are used in the processed food industry.

They all backfire sooner or later as the body learns to resist even them. Chronic allergies, histamine intolerance and auto-immune disorders are just some of the ways the body resists the intrusion.

The way to increase nerve force without pissing off the body and triggering off resistance, is to be nice and work with the body and the psyche, in ways considered friendly rather than forcing.

Positive and Negative Polarity – Holistic Recovery with Herbs from Radiotherapy and Radiation Damage

A time comes to every person who takes herbs and natural healing when they have to stop depending on herbs and cross over to being independently healthy again. Very few ever cross that line, and their body ends up developing resistance to the very herbs that are their medicine of choice.

Herbs to stimulate healing, detoxification and so on, are of the positive polarity, or solar, heating, pushing, moving. They include all those processes that are outgoing and heat generating and expanding and energy releasing. Cell growth, cell reproduction, regeneration of damaged tissue, they’re all positive or solar processes.

There are herbs that support the negative polarity or the lunar processes of the body, cooling, contracting and energy retaining.

These have to be taken at just the right time, to help bring the body into balance, into neutral, and then lessened to a point where you don’t need anything but your food and your water to keep healthy.

Just as the heart sends out blood to the entire body, so the heart receives blood from the entire body. It’s something that is happening in every part of us all the time.

Radiation is everywhere in our modern lifestyles, even if you don’t actually go through a radiotherapy session. It is experienced in mild ways across Australia, where I was told by a man who installed cable antennas, you won’t be covered by insurance for skin cancer if you don’t wear a hat when working outdoors. Radiation is delivered by microwaves, is in food that is irradiated to prevent it from spoiling, is generated by mobile phones, and any other number of radiation delivery devices.

Now radiation, simply over-stimulates the cells into the positive polarity causing the cell to release its stored energy, with which it was supposed to live long and reproduce into other cells before it died. When it suddenly releases all its stored energy, it burns out and dies, or goes weak.

This kills cells by making them overwork and get over-heated and, just like food gets heated up and if longer, burned, in the microwave.

This is one reason, radiotherapy is part of current medical treatment of cancer. Technically speaking, it should kill off just the bad boy cells and let the good boy cells be. In practical experience however, that is almost never what happens. Usually the good boys and girls end up weak and susceptible now to even more problems, and those far more widespread than before.

One reason herbal medicine for recovery from radiotherapy works so well is because herbs with high levels of natural energy (note: not all herbs are made alike) quickly supply the body with vital energy so the good boys and girls can keep going until they start functioning again and get back to collecting up energy for their life functions.

But this is where the bridge is. Ask anyone into natural living and they’ll tell you that a time comes when the herbs don’t ‘work’ like they did before.

The body balances out everything, even herbs. After a certain crisis has been crossed, the body will start treating the same herb it treated like gold during the crisis, now like any other food, passing out most of it. The body thinks, “I’m getting so much of it regularly, no point storing it around, let’s store the rarer stuff, this one’s always available.”

So that’s what’s happening on this side of the bridge. You can cross over the bridge now, to the other side, where the cells are all making their own energy like before, where the body is well like before, through one simple thing – energy balancing your cells, so they’re no longer in the state the radiation put them in – which was over-stimulated.

The herbs which help the body recover from over-stimulated, support the negative polarity in the body, or the ‘lunar’ processes.

These herbs don’t work aggressively, their whole benefit is that they are NOT aggressive. Many of these herbs have little white or yellow flowers, and grow as weeds. Most of them make you thirsty – think lunar, think moon, think water – because they help detoxify the body through the water networks of the body.

A few of the Negative Polarity or Lunar herbs that come to mind right now are:

When the physical heart is weak or unstable, it is a clarion call from our consciousness to repair ourselves from deep deep within.

Borage for disappointment with no silver linings
Cactus for nervous instability, recovery from shock
Damiana for uterine, sexual and reproductive system blocks
Violet for lymphatic sluggishness
Milk Thistle for congestion in the body such as after a large meal
Dandelion for tightness around the diaphragm, solar plexus
Mistletoe for when you’re too cold or too hot
Rose Petals and Rosehips to release blocked up energy
