The Gut Brain

Consider this: you have a second brain, it’s in your gut, and it is every bit as important as the brain in your head. This gut-brain, which is our digestive system, has a network of more than a hundred million neurons, which are in direct communication with the brain in your skull. The neurons form a cover, surrounding the whole digestive tract. The nearly ten-meter-long tube of the digestive tract, running from your mouth to your anus, is covered by the cloak of the neurons. This gut-brain is not about philosophy, falling in love, creativity, or the meaning of life; its main job is the daily labour of digestion. It’s a huge job to break down food particles and extract the nutrients, absorb those nutrients, and get rid of the waste. But all this neural army isn’t dedicated only to digestion and elimination. The vagus nerve, like a snake, heads up through the body from your gut to your brain; it carries a load of vital information. What kind of information flows from the gut to the brain? And do those messages carry data, which will determine your feelings, your moods, and your gut instincts? You bet. I will tell you some important things about this in just a moment. Western medicine is doing its best, using medication and surgery, to limit the carnage caused by your not-that-great food choices, auto-intoxicating habits, and sedentary lifestyle. Unfortunately, it ignores your body’s magnificent, natural ability to heal itself. We get prescriptions of meds to address symptoms, but almost none to address the underlying causes of the imbalances that lead to illness....

Daily Vitamin and Mineral Intake Recommendations

Daily Vitamin and Mineral Intake Recommendations

(The below table is based on my research of the work of Dr. Shealy.) Additional notes: Vitamins D, K, and Calcium are absorbed particularly well when taken together. If you take Niacin (B-3) as a separate supplement, it may give you a strong red flash on face, neck and arms. It will last for 15-45 minutes, and the flash normal and expected. Magnesium through the skin (transdermal) is best! Get a magnesium lotion or magnesium oil. Supplementing magnesium may increase your bowel movements and soften your stool. If you don’t want that, use magnesium oil in small doses, e.g. half-teaspoon daily on your skin. Keep the Iron away from Magnesium. If your Iron is in a multivitamin, keep the time of taking the multi-v apart from the time you rub yourself with magnesium. If you’re a smoker, refrain from smoking at least one hour after taking your supplements. Nicotine decreases the your body’s potential for absorption.

Skin Brushing

Skin Brushing

Did you know that the skin of the palms of your hands renews itself every 24 hours? Buy a long-handled vegetable bristle brush. Brush your skin, all over the body, working your way from the foot up through the leg, hand to shoulder, from the outside of the body toward the kidneys. Do this every morning for 5 minutes, get all that dry skin off, before your shower. Actually, twice daily is better. It is the best massage we know of! You are clearing the dead skin away, allowing the new skin to breathe. You have about 100 pores per square centimeter of the skin, and if you take that brush and get right into scrubbing around those pores, you will get rid of the top layer. Your skin is always growing, as the new skin grows, the top layer dies. It is dead flaky material. It has to be brushed off. You can help it, and you need to help—we believe it’s great for your health. Usually, when we talk about elimination, we talk about the bowel and kidneys. Our teacher Dr. Bernard Jensen considers the skin a ‘third kidney’, because it is a major organ of elimination of the waste of the body. You need to keep it clean and brushed. Jensen said that wearing clothes contributes to the beginning of every disease. In using iridology, we find a black rim surrounding the outside of most people’s eyes. We call this the ‘scurf rim’; it shows that the pores of the skin are not eliminating properly. Waste materials are being held under the skin. If you brush the skin, you get down to the next layer below the surface, which is as clean...
