Association between fish oil (Omega-3 fatty acids) and prostate cancer

Friends and family members of those fighting cancer often turn to aromatherapy & other types of alternative healing for help and support. It can be extremely frustrating to want to help a friend or loved one battling this terrible disease while feeling powerless to do so. Although certain essential oils (among them Frankincense, a rare species of Cypress, certain varieties of Thyme and Sage, and Lemongrass) have shown possible anti-tumor effects in some laboratory tests & research, to make any claims that essential oils can provide a cure for cancer is at the very least irresponsible and cruel.
What the oils can do, however, is strengthen the spirit, and provide emotional and spiritual support, both for the patient and for family members and caregivers. Essential oils are also being used to alleviate painful side effects of radiation & chemotherapy in cancer patients.
For strengthening the spirit, of particular usefulness are: Frankincense, Rose, & Atlas or Himalayan Cedarwood to spiritually uplift & promote emotional courage & strength. Further, Sandalwood oil, perhaps blended with either Cedarwood or Rose, can be emotionally supportive and comforting. Also, blends of citrus oils or conifers, diffused in the room, or used as an airborne spray does a wonderful job of both lifting the spirits, and removing “sickroom” odors. Some possible choices are: Pink Grapefruit, Sweet Orange, Red Mandarin, or Scotch Pine, Balsam Fir, Cypress, or Juniper.
Health care providers in America are becoming more open to the benefits of the holistic approach in caring for patients, with some adding aromatherapy programs as an element of treatment. This was the case when Nature’s Gift Aromatherapy was recently asked to provide a blend for a hospice in Montana as part of the facilities newly approved aromatherapy program. The nurse aromatherapist who commissioned the blend recommended using it with a gentle hand or foot massage. The blend consisted of 10 drops each of Somalian distilled Frankincense, and Frankincense CO2 extracted, with just 5 drops of Rose Otto 10% dilution. This would be the equivalent of 40 drops of Frankincense to 1 drop of undiluted Rose Otto. The blend may be diffused in an aroma lamp or diffuser or diluted way down (a 1% dilution, 6 drops of the blend to one fluid ounce of carrier oil or lotion) for massage.
On a physical level, positive results are being reported in dealing with post radiation pain and burning by using a blend of Jojoba oil and Aloe Vera gel, with Helichrysum, Lavender, German Chamomile and Geranium essential oils added. For use, mix equal parts of the jojoba and aloe first. Then, blend equal amounts of the four essential oils and add the synergy at a 2.5% dilution, basically using 15 drops of the essential oil blend to one ounce of blended jojoba and aloe gel. Since the Aloe and the Jojoba will not blend, the mixture will need to be shaken well before each use.
These are just a few suggestions for cancer patients, their friends & caregivers, which might be helpful along the healing journey. For more information about aromatherapy & essential oils, see: www.naturesgift.com.

Bad Vibes Dowse Your House

Bad Vibes Dowse Your House

*** Bad Vibes? Dowse Your House

Have you ever walked into a home or a business and felt it had bad vibes? Although you probably couldn’t quite put your finger on it, you knew something wasn’t right. More than likely, you tried to get out of there as fast as you could because you weren’t comfortable there.
Our bodies are very much in tune with what’s going on in our environment, whether we can see it or not. When the environment isn’t healthy, we know it at a subconscious level and react at a conscious level. This negative feeling is like a static charge that builds as we walk through the home or office building. Only instead of getting a physical shock when this charge reaches its peak, we get a shock to our psyche.
So, what is this negative charge or energy that we’re picking up on? It’s both natural and man-made. There are a number of different kinds of energy that, when concentrated, create that get me out of here’s sensation inside of us. These energies include Geo pathetic stress, negative Hartman lines, negative Curry lines and interference lines. There are others, as well and they each have their own origins and unique characteristics.
Geopathic stress literally means disease of the earth: ‘earth’ (geo) ‘disease’ (pathic). These stress areas in the earth are caused by fault lines, underground cavities, certain mineral concentrations under the earth and even underground water. You can see the effects of geopathic stress in the cracks in your sidewalk and driveway, and cracked tiles on the floor. Geopathic stress is also what causes earthquakes.
Hartman lines are different. These were discovered by a German physician named Ernst Hartman in the early 1940s. Hartman lines are sometimes referred to as the Earth’s electrical grid or nervous system. These lines run from North to South and East to West. These lines are naturally occurring and by themselves are not harmful. However, when electric outlets, fuse boxes or transformers are situated on these lines the electrical contact can cause the energy in the Hartman lines to turn negative and it’s this negative energy that causes us harm.
Dr. Hartmann discovered these lines and their negative effects when he began to see more and more patients coming to his practice with what were uncommon diseases for the 1940s like liver disease and cancer. After visiting these patients’ homes and offices, he found that they were either sleeping or sitting at a point where one or more negative Hartmann lines were located. The point on their body where the disease resided coincided with the location that the negative Hartmann line was crossing on their bodies.
Curry lines were discovered about ten years after Hartman lines by Dr. Manfred Curry and Dr. Whitman. These lines, like Hartman lines, are naturally occurring and part of the Earth’s electric grid. Curry lines run through the earth at diagonal angles from Northwest to Southeast and from Northeast to Southwest. Just like Hartman lines, the energy in Curry lines become negative when they are affected by electric outlets, fuse boxes or transformers.
Interference lines were discovered about a decade ago with the addition of cell phone towers to our landscape. Like AM and FM radio, cell phone towers have a specific frequency they send out so customers can communicate with each other. Interestingly enough, the organs in your body each have their own unique frequency as well. As these towers were being put up it was discovered that the frequency being sent out by some of these cell towers coincided with the frequency generated by specific body organs.
In one instance, a woman in California had her home’s energy evaluated because it just didn’t feel right to her. The gentleman who conducted the evaluation asked her whether anyone in her family had problems with their liver. She said it was odd that he asked because the entire family had just had complete physicals done three weeks before. The blood tests that came back indicated they all had signs of early stage liver disease. She said it came as a shock to them because no one on either side of the family had a history of liver problems.
The gentleman said that he wasn’t surprised because the frequency being transmitted by the cell phone tower 3 miles from their home was the same frequency as that of the liver. He said he had discovered this when several other families in the area he had worked with all told him they had liver problems too.
When geopathic stress, negative Hartmann lines, negative Curry lines or interference lines have an excessive presence in a home or office building they can give you that bad vibe feeling. In smaller doses the effects are more subtle and can range from feeling angry, frustrated or upset to creating physical aches and pains in the same area of your body over and over again. You may even find that your home or office has excessive amounts of clutter in certain spots as you subconsciously try to bury this energy under piles of paper and magazines.
The good news is that you can block this energy from entering your space by having your home or office dowsed. A good dowser can tell you what the energy level of your home or office is using their dowsing rods, can dowse your property and building to block the stress lines and other negative energy from coming into your space and then tell you what the energy is once their done. Think of this as acupuncture for your home or office.
One of the great things about dowsing your home or office is that the change takes place instantly. In fact, your body will react to this shift by making you more tired and/or thirsty for a couple of days so be sure to get plenty of rest and stay hydrated. If you’ve ever been to a massage therapist they tell you to do the same thing because they are shifting the energy in your body and releasing the toxins through their massage technique. Dowsing has this same effect for your home and office.
If you practice Feng shui your activation’s and cures will work even better if you dowse first. As an added bonus you’ll feel much better, too.
