Menstrual Cramps & Adrenal Fatigue Revealed: Part 2

Last month, for the first time in a long time, I had relief from my menstrual cramps.

What did I do differently?!

I took an amazing homeopathic remedy! Each person's "constitutional remedy" is different, depending on their life challenges and the experience of their symptoms. My menstrual cramps are much different from most people I know. A remedy that works for me might not work for someone else. That is why it is important to see a Classical Homeopath to find your constitutional remedy.

I can't even begin to express my excitement. Finally, something that is working for my chronic menstrual cramps.

Over the weekend I also attended a training seminar. The topic was Sclerology - the study of the white part of the eye. Sclerology looks at different markings to determine the level of health of the body. At the end of the seminar we had our eyes analyzed. What came up for me?

Parasitic flukes . . . in my uterus!

This made A LOT of sense to me. Parasitic flukes in the uterus will cause endometriosis like symptoms.

Endometriosis is hard to "diagnose" because it looks a lot like PMS. Here are some associated symptoms:
  • Pain before and during periods
  • Pain with intercourse
  • General, chronic pelvic pain throughout the month
  • Low back pain
  • Heavy and/or irregular periods
  • Painful bowel movements, especially during menstruation
  • Painful urination during menstruation
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Diarrhoea or constipation
  • Headaches
  • Low grade fevers
  • Depression
  • Hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar)
  • Anxiety
  • Susceptibility to infections, allergies
Although I have never been diagnosed with Endometriosis (and indeed, I do not believe in the "diagnosis", anyway), I experience most of these symptoms during menses.

My Healing Plan

I am going to start a parasite cleanse right away. Since I have never done a parasite cleanse, I can only imagine how many parasites I have in my body. Being in the Naturopathy field, I have seen some pretty nasty parasites come out of people. I have heard stories about "bundles of worms" coming out through the bowels. I know, I know... this is really gross... but must be faced! I have included a picture for your viewing pleasure (hehe).

If you experience a low grade infection, poor health, fatigue, headaches, nausea, constipation/diarrhea, or other similar common symptoms, then you probably have parasites too (especially if you have never done a parasite cleanse).

Each person needs an individualized parasite cleansing plan, depending on which parasites they carry. And, even if you are in a good state of health, you should still do an annual parasite cleanse.

Some good supplements to consider for parasite cleansing: Garlic, Black Walnut, Pumpkin Seed, and Cloves.

Menstrual Cramps & Adrenal Fatigue Revealed: Part 1

For years I have struggled with menstrual cramps. When I was a teenager, these menstrual cramps would be so painful that I wouldn't be able to continue normal activities. I stayed home from school on those days. As I grew older, this turned into not going to work on those days. I rested in bed, helpless, with no refuge from the pain. Heat seemed to help a little, but I still suffered. The only thing that would help were pain killers. As the years went on, and the dose of pain killers increased, the damage to my poor liver increased. The cycle was bad... every month the cramps would come on. I would try to struggle through, and when I couldn't do it any longer, I popped a Motrin or two. The cramps would feel better, but then the next month they would be the same.

 If you are a woman, then you probably know what I am talking about. Millions of women struggle from painful menses. They take pain killers, birth control pills, and other methods of suppression. Many of these methods help the cramps in the moment, but once they wear off, the painful menstrual cramps come back.

My Story

After a few years of suffering, a physician finally recommended birth control to eliminate these painful menstrual cramps. The birth control seemed to help, but there was something very artificial about it. It didn't feel right. I began to have mood swings and horrible cramps in my legs. The menstrual cramping was better, but the trade-off was not worth it. As I began to discover and study Naturopathy & Naturopathic medicine, I began to realize there were natural things that could be done to help painful menstruation. I also discovered how bad pain killers and birth control were for my health. For years I had subjected my body to toxic medicine at the expense of feeling no pain. I decided from that time on, I would no longer take the birth control, nor would I take pain killers (if I could help it!).

Well... the menstrual cramps came back... full force. This just shows that birth control pills didn't CURE me... they merely suppressed my symptoms until I stopped taking them. This, to me, is not medicine - it is suppression.

Since that time five years ago I have tried many (if not most) Naturopathic treatments for menstrual cramps. Some have worked for very short periods of time, while others have done nothing for me. I find it interesting that many articles out there say that eating a balanced diet will cure menstrual cramps. This hasn't been true for me, and I have eaten an extremely healthy and well-balanced diet for five years. This might work for some, but for the most part, I don't see it working for many.

Another Naturopathic suggestion I have heard is to take Red Raspberry tincture (or capsule or tea). I have also done this now for almost three years. It hasn't helped with the menstrual cramps. I continue to take Red Raspberry because it is so nourishing for the reproductive system. I would like to start a family some day, so I am building as much as I can now.

Some suggest Dong Quai. I tried that too. This, unlike the above remedies, helped me. During the months that I drank Dong Quai tea, I noticed the cramps were less severe. But, this didn't last when I stopped drinking it. For me, this was a palliative treatment - helping the symptoms but only while I was taking the remedy. This is not a true cure. A true cure would take the pain away, never returning again.

Goji Berries... yes... I tried those too. Those sweet, red berries seemed to help, but only during the time when I consumed them. I don't want to take a drug for the rest of my life, so why would I want to take a natural supplement everyday for the rest of my life (although Goji berries are very tasty and are highly nourishing). To me this was not a cure either (and I'm LOOKING for the CURE).

Up to that point, I hadn't found a cure.  I felt like a young jumbled mess. I continued to have extreme pain, but continued on my path to healing. I started to focus on myself and not everyone else. When I was a young adult, I took on too much responsibility out of a sense of obligation. This was no longer healthy for me, so I resigned from all my projects and groups. Those days to come were the best [and worst] days. I took a lot of time off work, yet began to feel so extremely exhausted. Many health professionals "diagnosed" me with adrenal fatigue & exhaustion.

So, there I was. A Naturopathic student with extreme menstrual pain and adrenal exhaustion. Hmmmph. Wasn't I supposed to be healthy? Wasn't I supposed to be vibrant?

After years and years of healthy eating, supplements, and natural therapies, nothing changed. What about all the "cure" stories I heard about in class? I was discouraged to the point of not believing that I would ever get better.

But, I'm proud to say now that I am finally at a place where I have found something that works for me. Almost two years ago I began seeing a classical Homeopath. I was put on a constitutional remedy, and I am amazed at my healing thus far. I will continue to post what worked for me and what didn't in more blogs to come (as this one is getting quite long... and I'm not writing a book on here - not yet anyway). This discovery has not only helped the way I practice, but it has also given me further insight into the world of Naturopathic medicine. More to come later blogs.

A New Face to SHT

Hi everyone!

I have been tossing around the idea of changing the 'face' of Sacred Healing Traditions. In the past I have posted many blogs about natural therapies for different conditions, as well as general health tips. I have tossed around the idea of making it more personal and include my story as well. In the past I have been reluctant to do so.

With that said, I have decided to include my story in this blog. I have come to realize that my struggles and successes will help many of my readers who have struggled or are struggling with the same things I have. This does not mean that I will not publish blogs that contain natural therapies or health tips. I will still continue to do this, however, will incorporate more of ME!

Thank you all for continuing to comment and send messages of your story. I really enjoy hearing from my readers.

Baby Bunny Update

After many long hours of nursing five baby rabbits, I have come to realize a few things.

#1: Baby rabbits are one of the most difficult animals to care for.

#2: It is very difficult for baby animals to survive without their mother's first milk (colostrum).

#3: No man-made synthetic formula can cut it... a baby fed formula has a significantly lower chance of survival.

All said and done, all of our baby bunnies have passed on. We followed all instructions given and kept them alive for a lot longer than we initially thought we could. At one point I even called a woman skilled in the art of nursing baby rabbits (she owns a rabbit sanctuary), and she said it's hit and miss with these babies. She shared that sometimes a couple baby rabbits will survive, while in other situations, no baby rabbits survive.

Needless to say, this also gave me even more insight into the world of mother's milk vs. formula. I see this all the time: babies who are fed a formula from birth have a weaker immune system and tend to be sick more often. Babies who are fed their mother's milk tend to have stronger immune systems and can fight off disease better. On top of that, babies who are fed colostrum are better off than those not. In my opinion, this is a must for all babies (even if the mother doesn't plan on continuing to breastfeed).

Hidden Cures For Cancer Part #2: Rife Beam Ray Device

Imagine spending your whole life building a machine that cures disease. You patent the machine and you find the machine to be extremely successful in curing ALL diseases. You then present your PROVEN research to a medical association that you belong to.

Think about this for a moment... what would happen to you if you found a cure for every disease imaginable?  At first thought you would think that you saved the world. That the medical establishment would welcome you with open arms. That you would become a billionaire and that your work would be published everywhere. On second thought what about Orthodox Big Money Medicine? What about a cheap machine that eradicates the use of pharmaceutical drugs? Do you think a big money company would allow a 'small' person to come and threaten their profit?

The medical association begins to feel threatened. Men in black suits come to your lab, taking all of your research and confiscating all of your machines. How would you feel?

This is basically what happened to Royal Raymond Rife.

The Life of Royal Raymond Rife

Dr. Royal Raymond Rife (1888-1971) was a brilliant scientist who developed technology which is still commonly used today in the fields of optics, electronics, radiochemistry, ballistics, biochemistry, and aviation. In his lifetime, he received 14 different awards and honors and was even granted an honorary Doctorate by the University of Heidelberg for his work. He worked for Zeiss Optics, the U.S. Government and several other private companies.

By 1920, Rife finished building the worlds first virus microscope. By 1933, Rife constructed the Universal Microscope, a complex technology that had almost 6,000 different parts and that magnified objects 60,000 times their normal size. With this microscope, Rife was the first person to see a live virus. Normal electron microscopes killed everything beneath them, allowing the scientist to only see the dead virus. Rife's machine allowed them to see the live virus and how it interacted with the cell, growing and replicating with changing environments. This gave Rife much insight on illness and disease.

Rife was way ahead of his time. Most of his colleagues couldn't understand his work without seeing it, so many doctors traveled to California.

There is much more to this story, but may be irrelevant for what I am trying to say here. I just want you to realize how distinguished Royal Raymond Rife was in his lifetime. Eventually, Rife discovered that pleomorphic fungi was the cause for most cancer, and that this fungi could not thrive and develop in an alkaline environment. He also discovered that frequency treatments cured cancer by killing microbes inside of cancer cells. He proved this many times over again and had tons of research.

Cured Cases of Cancer in the early 1900's

Rife was curing cancer with his Rife Beam Ray Device. He cured 22 cases of lung cancer. After the first 6 months of using the Rife Beam Ray Device on these 22 patients, 50% of them were cured. After an additional 6 months, 100% of them were cured of cancer.

In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a special research committee to bring terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital to Rife's laboratory and clinic in San Diego for cancer treatments. This team also included doctors and pathologists assigned to examine the patients, if still alive in 90 days.

After 90 days of treatment, the research committee found that 86.5% of the patients had been COMPLETELY cured! The treatment was adjusted for the remaining 13.5%, and within four weeks, Rife's technology had cured 100%.

The Suppression of Rife's Technology

On November 20, 1931, forty-four of the nation's most respected medical authorities honored Royal Raymond Rife with a banquet called The End to all Disease at the Pasadena estate of Dr. Milbank Johnson.  At that time, Rife was curing many diseases, including cancer, polio, meningitis and others.

However, only 8 years later, many of those medical authorities were denying they ever met Rife. Morris Fishbein, who was the head of the American Medical Association and owned all of its stock, offered to buy out Rife. He gave Rife an offer that he thought he wouldn't refuse. Rife refused. Fishbein was also the guy who attacked the Hoxsey Therapy (from Hidden Cures for Cancer Part #1) and had Hoxsey thrown in jail 125 times for practicing medicine without a license. Fishbein couldn't do the same thing he did to Hoxsey, since Rife had many prominent medical authorities working with him and a lot of profound research backing up his claim.

Rife's lab was broken into and some of his research was stolen. The culprit was never found, however, suspicions pointed toward the American Medical Association. In the days to come while Rife struggled to reproduce his missing data (remember photocopies and computers were not available then), someone stole pieces of and vandalized his Universal microscope. Just before that, an arson fire destroyed the multi-million dollar Burnett Lab in New Jersey, where scientists were preparing to announce Rife's work. The end of Rife's career came when police illegally confiscated the remainder of Rife's 50 years of research.

At that time, however, the Beam Ray Corporation was still manufacturing and selling Rife's frequency instruments (although Rife was not a partner). In 1939, the agents of a family that controlled the drug industry assisted Philip Hoyland in a lawsuit against the Beam Ray Corporation. Hoyland lost, however, the company went bankrupt by legal expenses. Commercial production of Rife's instruments ceased completely. 

Doctors who tried to defend Rife lost their research grants and hospital privileges. The doctors that worked alongside Rife were offered large sums of money to retire (during the Great Depression). Big money was spent ensuring that Rife's technology never got out there. Remember, medicine is BIG business... one cancer patient's treatment costs around $300,000, while a Rife Beam Ray Device costs between $2,000-$5,000, and could help thousands of people with cancer. 

Since that time we have watched the growth of the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life and other cancer research organizations. The heads of these organizations make millions of dollars per year, drive expensive cars and have mansions on the ocean.

The FDA attacks anyone who claims to sell Rife Beam Ray Devices or anything else that is said to 'cure' cancer. They spend a lot of money on calling out so called 'quacks'. They throw people in jail, fine them, and defame them.

Doesn't this seem odd? There are hundreds, if not thousands, of pharmaceutical drugs out there that have NEVER been proven, yet the FDA doesn't worry about defaming their makers. Vaccinations still contain toxic mercury and formaldehyde, yet the FDA doesn't worry about pulling them off the market. For some reason, the FDA is VERY worried about these PROVEN technologies, and keeping them suppressed and hidden.

Neither the Hoxsey treatment (from part 1) or the Rife Beam Ray Device  have ever had harmful side effects. Nobody has ever died from using them, while thousands of people die per year from chemo therapy, vaccinations, toxic drugs, preservatives in food, and much more. The American people pay to keep the FDA running, so the American people should force the FDA to refocus its attention... on the health and safety of its people, and not on the greed of the big pharmaceutical companies.

There are some practitioners out there who are using the Rife Beam Ray device and curing around 80+% of their cancer cases. These practitioners can be difficult to find as they have been targeted by the FDA, but they are out there.

Remember this article when someone asks you to donate to cancer research. Remember the corruption that happens in big companies over money and greed. And remember, most importantly, that your health is #1.
