At Arcanum Wholistic Clinic, there are certain questions we go through at the initial consultation with patients to discern whether or not they qualify for homeopathic medicine. Here is a brief outline of some of the things we typically discuss. You can test yourself to see if these are 10 Things that you do at home in order to better your health. If you still suffer symptoms, give us a call, we’re here to help.
Drink, drink, drink enough pure pH balanced water! If you can’t drink water from a well or mountain stream, then you will need to properly filter, and re-mineralize, the water you have. Pure water alone can cure symptoms such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, angina, migraine headaches, hypertension, raised cholesterol, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, depression, and diabetes. If you are ever thirsty during the day, you are actually suffering the effects of dehydration and need to increase your water intake to approximately 2.5 to 3.5 litres of well-water (avoid chlorinated or fluoridated water as much as possible).
Nutrition is totally individualized based on certain typologies. A healthy individual will do well to stick close to their Blood Type Diet based on Dr. D’Adamo’s research, Eat Right For Your Type. While there has been controversy over his research, we can affirm his findings based on 30 years of live blood analysis. If you are perpetually fatigued, 10-20 pounds overweight and suffering some mild symptoms, we will recommend further approaches that will balance glandular imbalances, cravings, and addictions.
Dormition, or sleep, is also instrumental to our health and well-being. Babies need about 12 hours of sleep per night. Adults, in the summer, need 8-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and in the winter 9-10 hours in a completely darkened environment. We know that the hormones Melatonin and Serotonin need complete darkness and a good deal of time to fully complete the cycle of restoring our bodies and minds for waking consciousness.
Recreation, which also includes exercise, is as critical as any other aspect of regimen. Our spiritual, emotional and physical health is dependent on our capacity to simply be at play! If you think about it, we’ve worked in the fields, ridden horses, or travelled long distances by foot for almost 6,000 years of human history. At no time have we been so sedentary and our physical bodies are not abiding easily to this new way of life. Diseases related to obesity like diabetes, heart, and hyper-tension are at an all-time high!
Another area we work in is a principled detoxification of your organism. Most of us suffer the effects, unknowingly, from heavy metals, including mercury. When we think of mercury, we tend to think of metal amalgams in teeth that have been used barbarically since the American War of 1812. For example, mercury is contained in everyday things such as: adhesives, air conditioning filters, antiseptics, batteries, body powders, burning newspaper, building materials, calomel lotions, commercial cereals, fabric softeners, insecticides, laxatives, lumber, paints, paper products, Preparation H, and some soft contact lens solutions. Mercury can cause adrenal dysfunction, allergies, hair loss, birth defects, Autism, Alzheimer’s, cerebral palsy, anorexia, brain damage, dizziness, drowsiness, eczema, abscesses in the gums, hearing loss, hyperactivity, immune dysfunction, hypothyroidism, kidney damage, migraines, anxiety, nerve-fibre degeneration, rashes, tremors and suicidal tendencies. In both Canada and the U.S. the allopathic flu-shot contains toxic levels of the preservative Thimerosal which contains mercury. Mercury is just one of 15 heavy metals that we will safely detoxify our patients from using homeopathic chelation therapy.
Geopathic stress affects us all. The word is derived from the Greek words geo (of the earth) and pathos (suffering). Most individuals have felt a sense of uneasiness when walking into someone’s home, place of work, store or even a tract of land. While a location can be altered with decorations or Feng Shui, other aspects are not always as easily alterable. Fault lines, electromagnetic fields, underwater veins, mines, man-made foundations, public utilities (sewage) and certain mineral deposits can contribute to unhealthy sleep patterns, as well as emotional and physical symptoms. If you notice irritability, stiffness, soreness, depression, restlessness and a lack of tolerance, you may need to test your home for Geopathic stress.
Using principled supplementation based on your individual needs can be a powerful aid. Did you know that you would need to eat 45 bowls of spinach to equal the nutrition of one bowl in 1945? Also, our soils are so deplete, you would need to eat 200 loaves of bread to equal one made at the turn of the last century. Again, keep in mind that you are a very finely mechanized, spiritualized being and that you want to base your self-prescriptions on principle also in this realm. After seeing results from 30 years of research in Live Blood Analysis, I know that herbs and even vitamins can create the illusion of health, or in some cases, even cause harm. It is best if you can derive as much of your nutrition from whole, live, and organic foods as you can.
Most folks are surprised when I say the true cause of all diseases start in the mind. Our hearts and minds carry a significant burden of unresolved emotions which, over time, produces armoring and rigidification in the body similar to rigamortis. Physical symptoms are really the last phase of the process of emotional and spiritual disturbances that have not been wholly discharged. When we use the homeopathic remedies to walk a person logically back through their timeline of emotional or physical shocks and traumas, they are amazed at how much content still prevails at their core needing to be expunged. The law of cure does not mess around, it will raise for your viewing pleasure, all that still has you puppeted on a set of unconscious strings!
Resonant relationships are critical to our emotional health and ecology. In our system of medicine, we define health as being orgastically potent in all aspects of one’s life. Whether that is through resonant union with your Beloved or through the work that reflects your soul’s yearning to know its self, it is critical to surround yourself with loving and nourishing friends and family. False precepts like dogmatic religion that keep a person tied to a toxic marriage bonds only breeds symptoms and disease which happiness and fulfillment do not. As a Physician, I have to conclude that if unhappiness breeds symptoms, that God doesn’t want you to live in abject misery.
Relax! Take time off and release yourself from the constant lure of work! Sidney J. Harris said, “The time to relax is when you don’t have the time for it.” He was right! Find a contemplative hobby like strolling by the ocean or in the woods, writing poetry, painting or photography so that you can access your muse and the more delicate meanderings of your heart and soul, or just nap or meditate on it!
