Self Healing and The Feng Fu Point

We all want to live longer, look younger, have more energy and lead a fuller life, right?  How can this be done?

Of course, eating right, being active, keeping your mind sharp and not doing high-risk activities is one formula.

Yet it turns out that an ice cube and a few moments of your time helps too.

At the base of your skull on the neck there is a point known as Feng Fu.

Feng-Fu-Point-and-self-healing

It’s a pressure point just below the bottom ridge of the skull cap at the top of the neck.

 

If you put ice on it regularly, it triggers rejuvenation in your body.

Illness seems to disappear!

You find yourself more energetic, and just plain happier.

Lie on your stomach and put an ice cube at the Feng Fu point.

Leave it there for 20 minutes.

Or use a bandage to fix the ice cube in place if you’re on the go.

Do this once in the morning on an empty stomach, and then once again before bed.

What’s the effect?  It:

improves sleep quality
improves mood
helps regulate the gut
relieves colds
relieves toothaches and headaches
may help relieve lung and cardiovascular diseases
may help thyroid issues
may relieve PMS and
may improve mental health

Live longer, look younger and have more energy thru self-healing by activating your Feng Fu point!

Design Your Own Supplement Pill

The first ever personalized supplement pill

Multiply Labs has come up with a solution that allows people with various lifestyles to design their own one pill for everything.

Yes, in just one pill you can get all the supplements you need instead of carrying a bunch of them around and taking multiple pills each day.

How does this work?

It’s based on a time release technology. 

After taking your pill in the morning, supplements are released at specific times throughout the day. 

For example, your pill could release vitamins right away and caffeine later in the day for an energy boost. 

You can even customize your own quantities, specifying how much of each supplement you want, so you can take what you need for your health.

Prebiotics & Probiotics For Your Gut Health

Last year I started experiencing the odd bout of anxiety.  This was a particularly foreign feeling to me, so I had a sense that something in my body wasn’t quite right.  Around the same time, I observed both digestive issues (bloating, general discomfort) and brain fog/memory loss and was subsequently tested for a Candida overgrowth.  Testing positive I was put on a diet to improve my gut health and each of the above symptoms disappeared, including the anxiety.

It’s fascinating isn’t it, how our bodies have a way of telling us exactly what we need to know?

Is it time then to consider your own gut health?

Your gut health is critical!

The health of your gut is extremely important to your overall well-being.  It’s a place where a whole lot is going on, and rightly so – it has a profound impact on far more than how much dessert you can fit in after dinner.  So much so in fact that the gut is often referred to as the “second brain“.

This is because it’s responsible for some very critical functions in your digestive and immune systems.  The presence of what’s called “good bacteria” actually enhance your health, greatly improving things like your hormone regulation, nutrient absorption, digestion, immune system strength and your body’s ability to eliminate toxins.

As we now know, the gut also influences your mental health.  The gut contains an Enteric Nervous System that communicates with your Central Nervous System, which triggers mood changes.  It means depression, anxiety, memory loss, and other cognitive functions can all be caused by your gut.

All disease begins in the gut.
– Hippocrates.

Don’t you find that refreshing?   

The notion that by simply changing what you put on the end of your fork (or spoon) each day you can better your mental health?  

 The good news is that it’s quite easy to maintain a healthy gut and keep all of these bodily functions in tip-top shape.  

The answer?  Increase your levels of good bacteria.
How do you do that?  With Probiotics.

What Are Probiotics?

Probiotics are microorganisms found in bacteria, yeast, and fungi that keep your digestive system happy and running at its best.  It’s the good bacteria I’ve been talking about that your gut needs to keep everything running smoothly.

If you’ve ever seen an advertisement for yogurt where they talk about how much good bacteria it contains, they’re talking about Probiotics.  These “living” bacteria are generally found in cultured or fermented foods.  Apart from yogurt, this includes things like buttermilk, aged cheeses, sourdough bread, miso, tempeh, and the drink Kombucha.

Next time you look at a tub of yogurt, look out for guys like Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium Lactis – they’re your friendly neighborhood Probiotics.

Using Probiotics helps you to:

  • Boost your body’s immune system by protecting it against harmful bacteria
  • Assist you to digest and process your food without bloating or gas
  • Restore your body’s natural balance after a stint on antibiotics, which tend to kill a lot of good bacteria in your system
  • Help your body absorb all the nutrients and good stuff it needs from what you eat

 

To improve your gut health, consume Probiotic foods like the above 1-2 times a day, and/or take a daily supplement.  You should start to see an improvement in a week or two.

What About Prebiotics?

Prebiotics, on the other hand, are non-digestible food fibers found in specific foods that give good bacteria (like those Probiotics) a helping hand to be more effective.

If you imagine Probiotics are plants, then Prebiotics are the soil.  They provide a stimulating environment that helps the good bacteria grow and have a bigger impact on your digestive tract.  For Probiotics to do their thing, they need a healthy level of Prebiotics around to feed them.

Prebiotic foods are a little easier to include in a healthy diet than Probiotic foods (in my opinion), so to improve your gut health I would recommend trying to incorporate them into your eating naturally, before looking at supplements. Combining Probiotic and Prebiotic-rich foods in your diet can allay many mental and physical health-related issues and support your health and well-being long-term.  Perhaps this is the prompt you need to make your gut health a priority.

Here is a list of foods that are rich in Prebiotic goodness:

Garlic

Jerusalem artichokes

Skin of apples

Onions, leeks, and celery

Legumes

Chicory Root

Rye, barley and whole oats

Shilajit – The Destroyer Of Weakness

Laboratory analysis of Shilajit reveals a complete spectrum of every essential mineral on the planet in ionic form—the most easily absorbable and assimilated by the human body. 

Treasures may be found everywhere for those who have eyes to see, a perfect example of this being Shilajit, one of the most prized medicines throughout Asia for the last few thousand years.  In its wild habitat, you could be forgiven for simply thinking that it was a tar-like substance oozing from the cracks in between rocks high up in the Himalayan Mountains.  And the locals did for many thousands of years; however, in ancient times one had to look for clues from nature to better understand their natural habitat, particularly what was safe and what was poison.

Upon seeing packs of native chimps snacking on the Shilajit tar and further observing that those who did seemed to be the strongest, most intelligent and long-lived of the bunch, the indigenous people began ingesting the night-black mineral pitch themselves.  When they too began experiencing the benefits, rapid restoration of their health and enhanced cognitive and physical abilities, they knew they had stumbled on a great discovery.  

Oral tradition has it that this is how Shilajit was originally discovered.  Although Shamans and Medicine Men of the time could not possibly have understood its complex and unusual composition, they could easily discern the beneficial effects Shilajit was having on the people they treated, which was a massive restoration of health and well being. 

Maybe so, but maybe not; either way decades of intense scientific analysis and study have revealed that Shilajit is one of the most nutrient-dense substances on the planet.  And what’s more, is that the nutrients it contains, such as naturally occurring humic and fulvic acids – two of nature’s most potent detoxifiers of heavy metals and other pollutants that disrupt the natural function of the body, and are quite rare to boot.  Known euphemistically as the destroyer of weakness, much can be learned about the incredible properties and benefits of Shilajit by understanding the process of how it is created.

Over the course of millions of years, the lush primeval vegetation that once blanketed Asia was decomposed by the forces of nature, eventually becoming highly compacted under the weight of the mountains, which later formed as continental plates collided.  Over 6,500 different species of ancient plants spent many millennia in a sort of geological alchemy that created a thick, black, resin-like substance trapped deep within the Himalayas, Caucasus, and other famous mountain ranges in the region.  The relentless monsoons and ever-increasing pressure eventually caused this tar to begin seeping from cracks in rocks in the sides of the mountains.

 

Scientists also found amino acids, fulvic and humic acids, ellagic acid, fatty acids, and plant sterols, which tend to have a harmonizing effect on the hormonal/endocrine system, among many others.

The Benefits of Shilajit

Shilajit acts on many different systems in the body, earning it a place among the prized natural medicines known as Adaptogens, meaning it helps to restore balance to one’s system; whether that is through reducing excess (stress and cortisol, for example) or nourishing deficiencies within the body’s various systems.  One of the primary ways it does this is through its action on the endocrine system.  As the master controllers of the body’s thousands of delicately tuned processes, hormones—or the lack thereof—have a very large influence on your health.  They control mood, libido, sleep-wake cycles, hair growth, cognition, energy, consciousness and much more.  However, Shilajit’s beneficial medicinal properties are not solely limited to the endocrine system. It has also been shown to: 

  • promote sound sleep 
  • gain endurance, strength, and stamina
  • ability to restore sexual function
  • promote cognitive abilities
  • reduce anxiety and stress
  • improve mood and generally extend one’s lifespan
  • reduce pain and inflammation 
  • healing effect on the digestive tract
  • ability to repair ulcerated intestines 
  • keep harmful bacteria in check
  • great re mineralizer and detoxifier
  • removes heavy metals
  • treat allergies, malnutrition, anemia, and broken bones 
  • the premium substance for building Qi
  • helps to increase the potency of your spinal fluid

 

Selecting Quality Shilajit

Shilajit can be found seeping wildly in many mountain ranges across Asia, although each culture tends to have its own name for the substance.  In Western and Central Asia it is typically referred to as Moomiyo, but in the areas in and around the Himalayas, it is referred to as Shilajit.  While this may seem like semantics, it is an important distinction due to the fact that, depending on the source, Shilajit/Moomiyo will have different compositions.

Generally speaking, the best quality Shilajit is believed to originate from the Himalaya area
Himalyan-Mountain-Shilajit
Shilajit is harvested in remote regions of the Himalayan mountains

 

However, because Shilajit is somewhat rare and difficult to collect, as well as the fact that the world’s supply originates in developing countries, the quality varies widely in the products currently available through various health food stores and websites worldwide. 

The most sought-after and rare form is the night-black mineral resin, with only a handful of companies selling it worldwide.  It is a sticky, wet-looking tar that is an intensely concentrated and purified form of Shilajit.  It can be pricey, although a little goes a long way, making even a small amount last for months, even at higher dosages.

That being said, there are many excellent, more affordable Shilajit products that come in a powdered form—though they will generally be slightly less concentrated and potent than the pure resin.  The primary benefits of the powder are the ease of use, price, and the ability to measure precise amounts, if needed, as the resin itself is quite sticky.  When using a powder discernment is needed, as not all brands are equal. 

The vast majority of products available worldwide are actually diluted Shilajit powders.  Pure Shilajit resin is composed of approximately 2% to 10% naturally occurring humic and fulvic acids with the remaining portion composed of minerals and other medicinal substances. 

However, adulterated products are typically 10% to 30% actual Shilajit powder and about 70% to 90% extracted humic and fulvic acids, which can be produced cheaply in a lab and added afterward.  While not dangerous, the adulterated Shilajit powders do not possess the same powerful medicinal properties.  Shilajit is not grown like most herbs and foods, so there are no organic or conventional distinctions.  If authentic and unadulterated, Shilajit is wild-crafted, which is truly what lends it such incredible healing properties.

Authentic, quality Shilajit always has a distinct, strong piercing tar-like odor that is unmistakable.  If the product you have does not have a noticeably intense smell or seems ‘faint’ then it is likely old or diluted Shilajit.

Natural Snoring Remedies

Snoring is an unacceptable noise when a person is lying down sleeping and occurs most frequently when lying on the back. When the soft palate in the throat closes down, it causes a vibration and the snoring noise. The tissue is too soft; this is one of many theories. Modern medicine tries to stop snoring with surgery, but is not always successful.

From the natural perspective, snoring is caused by weak connective tissue that can be helped by natural therapies. Snoring may come from excess mucus, allergies and other factors such as weight problems. Poor digestion may also contribute to snoring. Thus, eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, soda and dairy products.

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.
