Energy Medicine and Diabetes

For our discussion of diabetes here, it’s important to bear in mind that we’re talking about the energy interactions thought to be the root cause of diabetes. Remember our maxim:Everything is Energy The primary energy system related to diabetes is the Spleen Meridian. The energy of Spleen Meridian is believed to encompass the pancreas, which is the organ that produces insulin, among other hormones. Applying the methods listed below could have the effect of keeping blood sugar in better balance. It could also help create a new pattern of insulin production in the pancreas. The type of diabetes determines how much the illness could be turned around. If a person was born without the ability to create insulin, they will probably always need to have it supplied externally. But even in that situation, the procedures described below could help the pancreas to function more effectively. For the blood sugar to stay balanced, it is crucial that Spleen Meridian be kept strong. This is done primarily by sedating Triple Warmer Meridian and then by directly strengthening Spleen Meridian. In Energy Medicine there are several ways to do this, and it might be good tor use every way possible since what is required with this illness is to literally retrain a deeply held energy habit in the body. 1. Sedate Triple Warmer Meridian and Strengthen Spleen Meridian 2. Massage the Spleen Neurolymphatic Reflex Points 3. Hold the Spleen Neurovascular Points 4.

While it is unlikely that energy interventions properly applied would cause an acute medical emergency such as a heart attack or stroke (we know of no such cases based on tens of thousands of sessions), the possibility that a heart attack or stroke might occur while someone is on your table is as likely as it is that one might occur while the person is at a baseball game, a picnic, or watching television. You should be prepared. Staying current with Red Cross CPR and First Aid Certification is a first obvious step. This brief guide presents additional basic information a non-medical energy practitioner should master to help maintain that preparedness. It also addresses a number of non-emergency situations that may occur during energy healing work. It does not, however, pretend to be comprehensive—that would require a book. But it does review the warning signs of conditions such as heart attack or stroke that would require an immediate call to 911 as well as covering a variety of other situations that could confront you as an energy practitioner.

Women who are having a heart attack may have little or no chest pain along with one or more of the other symptoms listed above. WHAT TO DO FOR A SUSPECTED HEART ATTACK UNTIL THE PARAMEDICS ARRIVE:

 

Medical Necessities: If the person has stopped breathing, administer CPR, including chest compressions if there is no pulse. This is the top priority! Common Sense: Make the person as comfortable as possible.

ENERGY METHODS to support the heart(presented in the suggested order, but like all energy medicine interventions, use with an experimental attitude—they won’t hurt, they probably will help, energy test your results when appropriate, stay attuned to your intuition, not every technique listed will be necessary, innovate):
1. 2. 3. Do a "hook-up" (one hand in navel, one hand on third eye, push in and pull up). Strengthen the heart meridian by tracing it forward. As you come to the end of the meridian, rapidly twist the ends of the little fingers back and forth with some pressure. Deeply and vigorously massage the heart neurolymphatic points between the 2 and 3 ribs, just below where the collarbone and breastbone meet, especially if the person is unconscious. Do not do this massage for more than 10 to 15 seconds. Hold one hand over the heart area and press deeply into the top of the pubic bone with the other hand for about 30 to 60 seconds (re-establishes electrical energy in the body and stimulates the penetrating flow) Hold the triple warmer strengthening points (TW3 & GB41, then TW2 & BL66) if the person appears to be leaving the body. Speak calmly and ask the person to stay with you. If you have help available, have another person pulse the K1 points on the bottom of the feet. Hold the spleen meridian strengthening points (Sp2 & H8, then Sp1 & Lv1). If the heartbeat is erratic or if the heart is beating too strong, hold the small intestine meridian strengthening points (GB41 & SI3, then B66 & SI2). If the person is conscious, stable and resting comfortably, hold the frontal neurovascular points to offer comfort until help arrives.

A TEST the General Public Can Use to Assess Whether a Person Has Had a Stroke (from a paper presented at the American Stroke Association's annual meeting): The symptoms of a stroke can be difficult to recognize, and this can spell disaster. The stroke victim may suffer brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say any bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
  
Ask the person to smile Ask the person to raise both arms Ask the person to speak a simple sentence

If the person has trouble with any of these tasks, call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. WHAT TO DO FOR SUSPECTED STROKE UNTIL THE PARAMEDICS ARRIVE:

Medical Necessities: If the person has stopped breathing, administer CPR, including chest compressions if there is no pulse. This is the top priority. Common Sense: Make the person as comfortable as possible. ENERGY METHODS to help restore neurological balance: 1. Do a hook-up (one hand in navel, one hand on third eye, push in and pull up). 2. Push the middle finger of one hand into the person’s "power point" (indent at center base of skull where skull meets the neck) and with the other hand hold the K-27s firmly for at least a minute. 3. Hold the "electrical points" at the base of skull just above the neck (on either side of the power point) for at least a minute. 4. Do a crown pull. 5. Do a frontal/occipital hold (one hand across the forehead area at the hairline, the other at the back of the head where the skull joins the neck) until you feel a pulse in the forehead. The top part of the hand on the forehead activates the liver neurovascular points (liver meridian feeds the heart) at the hairline and the bottom (across the eyebrows) activates the bladder neurovascular points (bladder meridian governs the nervous system). 6. Hold spleen neurovascular points (one inch above ear on either side of head) for one to two minutes. 7. Hold the triple warmer strengthening points (TW3 & GB41, then TW2 & BL66) if the person appears to be leaving the body. Talk to the person and ask the person to stay with you. If you have help available, have another person pulse the K1 points on the bottom of the feet. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION:

III. SEVERE SHORTNESS OF BREATH OR DIFFICULTY BREATHING: Breathing difficulties can have a number of serious causes, some of them life-threatening. Heart attack, asthma, and anaphylactic shock are all discussed in this brief paper. Among the other possible serious causes are congestive heart failure (the inability to pump enough blood to avoid congestion in the lungs and other organs), severe pneumonia, and pulmonary embolism (blockage of blood vessels in the lung by a blood clot that usually originates in the lower part of the body, usually the legs). If the symptoms are severe, call 911.

IV. ASTHMA ATTACK: Asthma is a respiratory disorder characterized by wheezing. Possible triggers for asthma include respiratory infection, allergies, chemical sensitivity, overexertion, and intense emotion. The most common asthma symptoms are shortness of breath or difficulty breathing (it feels like breathing through a straw), wheezing, and coughing. If the person's symptoms are severe, call 911.


Medical Necessities: If the person has stopped breathing, administer CPR, including chest compressions if there is no pulse.

This may last from a few minutes to a few hours. Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes recurrent seizures. but if other people are available. This will be followed by generalized rigidity of the extremities and trunk with the head often turned to one side and eyes rolled up. 3. If the person is having some difficulty breathing. lethargy. change hands so your fingers reach to the other temple. potentially poses a more serious threat because it may result in blockage of the airway. Pushing in hard in the fleshy area approximately one inch above the inside corners of the bottom of the scapula (shoulder blade) can stop an asthma attack. If you have help available. you can trace Triple Warmer forward on both sides several times. or repetitive jerking (convulsions) involving one or more limbs. After a minute. It is particularly important when assisting someone with an asthma attack to remain calm and reassuring and to encourage the person to slow his or her breathing while waiting for emergency help to arrive. 2. Following this tonic phase is the clonic phase (Grand-mal seizures are often called tonic-clonic seizures). the person will make a brief grunting or gasping sound. then TW2 & BL66). certain features are common to all seizures. Others may engage in repetitive hand movements or lip smacking or have muscle jerking (convulsions) involving one or more limbs. Place one hand over the TW and kidney neurovascular points just below the turn at the back of the head and the other hand laying flat on the forehead with the fingers stretching to the V. or movement. Flush lung meridian several times. and deeply massage lung neurolymphatic points on the sternum and between the ribs beside the sternum until breathing eases. called a Grand-mal seizure.

If it becomes necessary to administer CPR. have another person pulse the K1 points on the bottom of the feet. If the person is having great difficulty breathing. One type of seizure. The person could lose bowel or bladder control. It is in this phase that there is the risk that the tongue can block the airway. characterized by muscle jerks or convulsions. repetitive movements of hands or lip smacking. Initially. may cause a vacant stare. ENERGY METHODS to help the person relax and to support the respiratory system: The first order of business is to calm the person and re-establish the ability to breathe regularly. it is important that you recognize one should it occur. as described above. so they will not be responsive to efforts to rouse them. The degree of breathing impairment will determine the level of energy intervention. For any person having a seizure there is a potential for physical injury. Options include: 1. Although different types of seizures are quite distinct in how they appear. Although it is very unlikely that you will witness a person experiencing a Grand-mal seizure during an energy medicine session.

anaphylactic shock is a possibility. Lay your forefingers over the closed eyelid with gentle pressure. it also connects the rear electrical points. Tremors develop gradually and are not a medical emergency. If you are alone with the person. The person was sensitized to the substance by previous exposure. Never put an object—including your fingers—in the mouth of someone who is seizing. have another person do a "power point/sacrum hook-up" at the same time—placing one hand on the person’s power point (indent at center base of skull where the skull meets the neck) and the other hand over the person’s sacral area. and calling 911. Hold these hook-ups until the person starts coming out of the seizure. 4) a second seizure starts shortly after the first has ended. are involuntary rhythmic limb movements caused by illness (such as Parkinson’s disease) or by a hereditary condition. Offer help when the seizure ends. or tremor. or diabetic. pushing in and pulling up for up to a minute. and do not hold the person down. 2) there is no Epilepsy/Seizure Disorder ID present and no way of knowing whether the seizure is caused by epilepsy. do a frontal/occipital hold.

Do not give the person anything to eat or drink until fully alert. Symptoms include difficulty breathing and swelling of the face and may escalate to a loss of consciousness and death. After taking steps to prevent injury. If a person you are working with experiences a seizure. ANAPHYLACTIC SHOCK: This is a severe and rapid reaction to a substance (especially foods such as shellfish and peanuts. It is possible for energy treatments to cause people’s limbs to twitch or move in a random way. Call 911 second. but if a person you are seeing is having a severe allergic reaction. If the person stops breathing. If others are there with you. Place in a position where uncontrolled movements will not result in injury. one of the quickest ways to end a seizure is to "hook up" the person’s energies in as many ways as possible: a. Once the person is conscious. 3) consciousness does not start to return after the shaking has stopped. The Epilepsy Foundation recommends that an ambulance be called if 1) the seizure lasts more than 5 minutes.associated with a temporary loss of consciousness during the seizure followed by a period of lethargy or confusion. Continue until you feel a pulse on the forehead. An anaphylactic reaction is not likely to occur in your office because it usually develops so rapidly after exposure to the offending substance. on the other hand. This position reduces the risk of suffocation from the tongue blocking the airway or vomit being inhaled. .  ENERGY METHODS to help a person having a seizure: 1. particularly to something that has caused a serious reaction in the past. b. insect venom such as a bee sting.

CHRONIC SYMPTOMS THAT MAY BE EARLY WARNING SIGNALS OF SERIOUS ILLNESS Among the indications for referral to a health professional capable of making a medical diagnosis are:     Unexplained weight loss Persistent pain of unknown cause Blood in urine or stools Fatigue    Persistent symptoms like cough or hoarseness Unexplained lumps or sores that don't heal Fainting episodes in an adult Use common sense and refer clients for symptoms that are clearly abnormal or that don't improve with energy treatments. the best course of action after insuring that the person is breathing and calling 911 is to strengthen Triple Warmer. have the person hold the spleen neurovascular points on the side of the head. Common Sense: Make the person as comfortable as possible. REACTIONS THAT MAY BE CAUSED BY ENERGY INTERVENTIONS  Intense Emotional Release. If your client is receiving aggressive treatments. This may or may not be accompanied by trembling. Periodic medical tests to monitor such conditions should be a condition of your treating the person. speaking calmly and softly. including informing them of the nature of the treatment you are providing. including chest compressions if there is no pulse. such as hypertension. and consulting as appropriate.

Most people say they know what they should be eating but they don't always put it into practice. Living in the fast lane.Balancing Techniques . Kinesiologists believe that there is a reflex action called neuro-lingual (brain tongue). This relationship between food and brain is easy to relate to as we know just thinking about something we like to eat makes our mouths water.herbs2000. Nutritional needs are very individual and can constantly change. We need to give the same consideration to the food that we put into our mouths to build. If the muscle unlocks when tested and the therapist wants to find out if nutrition will help strengthen the body. Kinesiology offers specific nutritional support for each muscle which can be used as a guide to what you may be needing. grabbing a sandwich for lunch. going on a crash diet.

which seem to influence the flow of blood to specific organs and structures. It is not the flow of lymph which brings about the change but the 'unblocking' of the communications system which activates a whole series of impulses to allow the body to respond. Other lymphatic tissue found in the body are the thymus gland. in groups. blood vessels. Too much fat in the diet can also overload theimmune system. others are on the trunk. Neuro-vascular Holding Points In the 1930s Dr Terrance Bennett. This is how you can treat one seemingly unconnected part of the body by rubbing or touching another part. Thus it becomes easier to understand why a muscle responds so quickly to stimulation of these points if one has an image of a switch which turns the flow of lymph on or off. REFLEX POINTS The following two kinesiology corrections use reflex points. appendix. the sort of pressure you use when washing your hair. The lymphatic system consists of lymphatic vessels. When the body is fighting infection these nodes can become inflamed and enlarged (swollen glands). These points are stimulated by firm massage. George Goodheart found that specific muscles would respond to one reflex only. These reflex points are found mainly in the spaces between your rib bones on the front and back of your body. a moving X-ray machine. This resulted in both an important contribution to health care and his untimely death from radiation poisoning. nodes or glands. or sometimes scattered over an entire muscle. These points became known as neuro-vascular reflexes. legs and arms. discovered locations. The vascular (circulatory) system is composed of arteries carrying oxygenated blood from the heart to the tissues and veins carrying de-oxygenated blood back to the heart.
