Jin Shin Jyutsu for Fear, Depression, PMS, Circulation & More, PLUS Free Scalar Energy Series

 

After posting about Prime Mover, a key Jin Shin Jyutsu hold/flow, a reader asked me to share more processes she could put into practice, so this is response to her request…..

 

JIN SHIN JYUTSU TO LIFT DEPRESSION & FEELING FEARFUL

Feeling fear sometimes is a natural part of our human ‘beingness’. When we become STUCK in FEAR it it can give way to deeper issues such as depression, despair and powerlessness. The good news is that there are some simple Jin Shin Jyutsu exercises to harmonise fear and lift depression.

However, you don’t need to be in a state of depression to feel the benefits, as this helps everything, on all levels!

Hold the Index Finger

If you suffer from fear and anxiety, then holding the index finger can be really helpful. The Attitude of FEAR relates to the energies of the index finger. FEAR cuts us off from our FLOW. When we are in the flow, we are in harmony – there are no blockages which can cause an array of medical conditions.

When we don’t let go, we don’t allow the flow. The opposite of fear is flow. Holding index fingers gets you back in the flow.

Furthermore Mary Burmeister says: “The index fingers, when not in harmony, are the source of all LACKS.

LACK of: perception, balance of thinking, energy, health, and all material things, begin to cause FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real).”

I find Mary’s words so profound. Believe me, I am constantly in awe of these words as I experience the POWER of holding my index fingers.

Marvelous self help

Holding the index finger is a rather marvelous self help exercise. It is simple but so dynamic.

Add the Ring Toe (4th Toe)

But there is more good news! In Day 3 of the Self Help Classes, we learn that fingers and toes are connected. So we can use fingers and toes together to help us in very dynamic ways!

Holding the Ring Toes by themselves helps the following energy functions: liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, diaphragm.

Dynamic Duo: Index Fingers and Ring Toes

Holding the Index Fingers and Ring Toes helps all the circulatory functions in the body helping the FLOW. Do this exercise regularly (every day) to harmonize fear and lift the feeling of depression.

Left Side:
Wrap your right hand around the left index finger
Hold for 5-10 minutes or more, then
With your left hand hold the left ring toe (with position of the feet in image, place thumb on the top and rest of fingers on the bottom side of toe)
Hold for 5-10 minutes or more
(if you can reach both left and right ring toes, then at the same time hold the right ring toe)

Right Side:
Wrap your right hand around the left index finger
With your left hand hold the left ring toe
(if you can reach both left and right ring toes, then at the same time hold the right ring toe)

Note: If you can, lie on your back and cross your legs so you can grab your ring toes more easily. If you find grabbing the ring toes difficult in whatever position, then get someone else to hold your ring toes for you while you hold your index fingers. Maybe you can bribe your children or grandchildren to do this for you.

Here’s more from Astrid, this time about a JSJ hold that can help with PMS, prostate, restless legs, cold feet and poor circulation…..

Pre Menstrual Syndrome or PMS as it is commonly known can come on a day or two before menstruation. It can cause sudden cramping in the pelvic area which is very uncomfortable and painful, to say the least.

I know first hand how painful it is!

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu self help pms

The pain was excruciating

One day as I drove along on my own, a sudden and excruciating cramp came on. Luckily, it happened just as I stopped at a red traffic light. Of course, I didn’t have much time, so I had to think fast! What could I do to move this on?

My instinct (inner wisdom) told me to ‘sandwich’ my pelvis.

An astonishing result

Imagine my astonishment when, within seconds, the pain and cramp subsided! By the time the light turned green again, the cramp, the pain and the discomfort had all completely DISAPPEARED.

Better still, I’ve never had cramps like that again.

Not just for women!

The self help hold will also benefit men, as it keeps the energy flowing properly through the pelvic area, it supports especially the prostate.

Why does this work?

This Jin Shin Jyutsu self help hold is really simple and effective (have I said that before?) because it releases congested/stuck energy in the pelvic area.

When energy gets stuck there can be pain and discomfort. But it’s not only in the pelvic area; one may also feel heavy or uncomfortable in the legs.

Basically, the energy flow down the legs is constricted, so this is also a great hold to help with poor circulation, cold feet and to relieve restless legs.

Flows For Life Jin Shin Jyutsu self help PMS

Self help exercise to clear the pelvic area

So to get the energy flowing properly, we can help clear the area as follows:

Place the left hand on the pubic bone. This clears the descending energy down the front.

Place the right hand with the palm side on the base of the spine as far down as possible near the coccyx. If it’s uncomfortable doing it that way you can also turn your hand around so the back of the hand is on the base of the spine.

The Ill Effects of the Time Change

 

Yipes! It’s that time of year again when we “fall back,” rather than “spring forward.” I love getting an extra hour (that should happen every Sunday!), but think the whole time change thing has very little value in this day and age. Plus, it comes with a number of minuses that were mentioned in an article I featured a number of years ago.

This in-depth post by Dr Mercola brings up even more ways switching back and forth is hard on us, not only physically, but also mentally and emotionally…..

 

Health-Saving Tips for Transition to Standard Time

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • In the United States, daylight saving time (DST), which began Sunday, March 10, 2019, ends Sunday November 3, 2019. On that day, at 2 a.m. local time, clocks “fall back” one hour to 1 a.m., to what’s known as standard time
  • March 26, 2019, the European parliament voted to end DST as of 2021
  • While the original intention was that extending daylight hours during the summer would result in energy savings, research shows it’s not saving us any money, and is contributing to ill health
  • Researchers have noticed a statistically significant increase in the number of car accidents, workplace injuries and heart attacks in the days after the time changes in the spring, which appear to be related to loss of sleep and circadian rhythm disruptions
  • While the most adverse health effects are attributed to the springtime switch to DST, the switch back to Standard Time in the fall means your body has to get used to it getting dark earlier in the evening. Tips to help your body adjust to the time change are included

In the United States, daylight saving time (DST), which began Sunday, March 10, 2019, ends Sunday November 3, 2019. On that day, at 2 a.m. local time, clocks “fall back” one hour to 1 a.m., to what’s known as standard time.

In Europe, clocks are rolled back an hour on the last Sunday of October, which this year falls on October 27. Regardless of the exact day, this time change from DST to standard time results in the gain of one hour of sleep.

While the loss or gain of one hour might sound like a negligible amount, research clearly shows it has significant ramifications for public health and safety — particularly after the switch to DST in the spring. However, even the switch back to standard time can leave you feeling off-kilter for days or even weeks, as your body adapts to the earlier onset of darkness.

Europe Ditches DST Effective 2021

Many Europeans are now rejoicing. March 26, 2019, the European parliament voted to end DST as of 2021, so they only have two more years of clock-changing to deal with. As reported by The Guardian, member states will be allowed to “choose whether to remain on ‘permanent summer’ or ‘permanent winter’ time under the draft directive.”

This means that countries opting to remain permanently on “summertime” (the term used for DST in Europe) would perform their last and final clock adjustment on the last Sunday in March 2021. For countries opting to remain in permanent wintertime/standard time, the final adjustment would take place on the last Sunday of October 2021.

While some U.S. states and territories have abolished DST, most have not. However, the tide is starting to turn even in the U.S. Each year, more states are considering taking action to end it.

As reported by National Geographic, dozens of state bills have been introduced in 2019, proposing various changes to DST. Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, California, Oregon and Washington are all considering legislation to opt out of the time change.

Why Do We Have DST?

As explained in the featured video, daylight saving time is intended to give you more access to daylight hours, thereby reducing energy costs and promoting healthy outdoor activities.

But is it worth it? Kazakhstan abolished DST as of 2005, citing health complications as the reason for its decision. In 2011, Russia’s president Dmitry Medvedev also canceled DST due to the “stress and illness” it causes.

While the original intention was that extending daylight hours during the summer would result in energy savings, research shows it’s not saving us any money. For starters, lighting is no longer the most significant portion of energy consumption, and extending daylight hours encourages greater use of air conditioning and heating, both of which use more energy than lighting. A study by Yale economist Matthew Kotchen and Laura Grant, Ph.D., concluded that:

“… contrary to the policy’s intent — DST increases residential electricity demand. Estimates of the overall increase are approximately 1 percent, but we find that the effect is not constant throughout the DST period. DST causes the greatest increase in electricity consumption in the fall, when estimates range between 2 and 4 percent.”

Kotchen notes when DST begins in the spring, people are waking during the coldest and darkest part of the day, often turning up the heat to stay warm, and during long evening hours, more air conditioning is used, leading to an overall higher energy use. He told The New York Times, “The way people use energy now is different from when daylight saving came about.”

Similarly, a 2018 meta-analysis of 44 different papers found that, on average, DST lowered electricity use by a mere 0.34%. Locations further from the equator, with mild summers and low cooling demands, may save energy, but geographical locations closer actually use more energy during DST.

DST Increases Traffic Accidents

Aside from failing to provide any significant energy savings, the biannual clock changes also have a detrimental impact on your physical health. Between accidents and health repercussions, it seems clear DST is actually costing more than it’s saving.

Researchers have noticed a statistically significant increase in the number of car accidents, workplace injuries and heart attacks in the days after the time changes in the spring, which appear to be related to loss of sleep and circadian rhythm disruptions.

According to one 2009 study, workplace accidents and injuries increase by 5.7%, and 67.6% more workdays are lost as a result of injuries following the change to DST. Ditto for traffic accidents. A 1996 study found traffic accidents rose by 8% on the Monday following the changeover to DST.

More recent research, published in 2018, found traffic accidents increase 16% on the first day after DST and 12% on the second day. Fatal alcohol-related traffic accidents also increase for the first week after setting the clocks ahead.

Suicide rates for men also rise in the weeks following DST. According to the authors, their finding “suggests that small changes in chronobiological rhythms are potentially destabilizing in vulnerable individuals.”

DST Raises Rates of Heart Attacks

Cardiac events are more commonplace every Monday, greater than any other day of the week, and are likely related to changes in sleep associated with the transition from weekend to workday. This is known as the “Monday cardiac phenomenon.” On the Monday and Tuesday following spring DST, studies show the risk is even more pronounced.

For example, a University of Alabama study found the number of heart attacks increased by 10% on the Monday and Tuesday following the time change to DST in the spring, and decreased by 10% on the first Monday and Tuesday after the clocks are switched back in the fall.

Other studies have found even larger discrepancies. For example, data presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 63rd Annual Scientific Session in 2014 revealed a 25% increase in heart attacks the Monday after DST in the spring, and a 21% decrease in the fall when an hour of sleep is regained. The most recent meta-analysis looking at this phenomenon was published in the March 2019 issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine. Here they found:

“A significantly higher risk of AMI [acute myocardial infarction] (Odds Ratio: 1.03 …) was observed during the two weeks following spring or autumn DST transitions.

However, although AMI risk increased significantly after the spring shift, the incidence of AMI during the week after winter DST transition was comparable with control periods … Conclusion: The risk of AMI increases modestly but significantly after DST transitions, supporting the proposal of DST shifts discontinuation.”

Preliminary research presented at the 2018 American Heart Association conference found the number of patients admitted for atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) also rises in the days after DST in the spring, from 2.56 admissions per day to 3.13 admissions.

Other Problems Attributed to DST

Researchers have also found people are less productive once DST is implemented. A 2012 National Geographic article quoted Till Roenneberg, a Russian chronobiologist, who said most people show “drastically decreased productivity,” decreased quality of life, increased illness, and are “just plain tired” in the week after DST in the spring.

Disruptions in your sleep pattern tend to cascade throughout your entire body. For instance, sleep helps reset your neural circuits that are impaired during sleep deprivation. With too little sleep, your cognitive flexibility suffers.

Research from the University of Washington found cognitive inflexibility even affects judges who are handing down sentences. On the Monday after DST in the spring, longer sentences are imposed on people who have been found guilty.

A similar negative effect has been found in students. A 2015 study found DST adversely affected sleep patterns of high school students and their ability to be vigilant at school.

Other data suggest it may affect academic performance. Researchers compared 10 years of SAT scores from Indiana where only 15 of the state’s 92 counties moved their clocks forward during the study period. The data indicated SAT scores were 16% of a standard deviation lower in counties that adopted DST.

On a side note, one reason Indiana is used as a discussion model for DST is because it lies smack-dab between Central and Eastern time zones. Geographically, it’s actually in the Central zone, but in 2006 it adopted the standardized DST to align with Eastern standard time changes.

The decision has been controversial in Indiana, where the western part of the state wants to align with the Central zone, while the eastern part favors aligning with Ohio’s Eastern zone.

A 2019 article by Health.com also cites evidence linking DST to higher rates of depression diagnoses, cluster headaches and lower success rates among women undergoing in vitro fertilization.

Jin Shin Jyutsu: The Prime Mover

 

I have been out of the blogging loop for awhile now due to A) an unexpected move (still in the process of getting settled), followed by B) an amazing Mastering Alchemy conference in Atlanta, and then C) some kind of extreme physical yuck w/ a temp of over 103° that I think was at least partially triggered by all the shifts and changes set in motion by A and B. 😦 But I did lots of neti potting, used the Kick-Ass Flu Remedy protocol, elderberry syrup, colloidal silver, and a few other odds and ends and actually bounced back quicker than anticipated. YEA!

Anyway, I’m glad to finally get around to posting this information about Prime Mover that’s been in my draft section for ages. If you weren’t around when I featured an article I wrote for Sivana Spirit about Jin Shin Jyutsu, one of my absolute favorite self-help health tools, then be sure and read that before this one, so you’ll have some background appreciation of this simple, but effective form of energy medicine.

The following article is by JSJ teacher and practitioner Astrid Kauffmann at Flows For Life and focuses on one of the most important, yet simple, flows/holds you can use….

 

CHANGE YOUR LIFE WITH PRIME MOVER

The Insides of the Knees is the One!

The mover and shaker in Jin Shin Jyutsu is the energy site that is found on the inside of the knees: the energy site that is Number One, as in SEL(Safety Energy Lock) #1.

This one is truly the Power of One! People have told me that when they held their ones for an hour every day, their lives changed!

If you feel stuck

So, if you feel stuck, start holding the inside of your knees. It doesn’t matter whether you cross your arms or not – do whatever feels comfortable for you. Hold for at least 20 minutes at a time if you can.

It’s wonderful that Jin Shin Jyutsu can help us move the energy so that we can get ‘unstuck’ and open up to receive the abundance that life offers.

SEL #1 is called the ‘The Prime Mover’

It is found on the inside (medial side) of the knees. It connects extreme heights with extreme depths and harmonizes us from head to toe because it helps the descending energy (which moves down the front) and the ascending energy (which moves up the back).

It’s ALL about harmonizing the breath; as we exhale, we let go of the old (dirt, dust, grease and grime) and as we inhale, we let in the new (pure energy and abundance).

Also great for emergencies

Holding this energy site is also very helpful in emergencies like breathing difficulties, stomach cramps, menstrual cramps, nausea, vomiting, shock, etc.

I remember years ago I had a situation when I ate something that really did not agree with me and,boy, did my stomach complain. I had severe stomach cramps. They were so bad they took my breath away (literally!).

I was in the middle of nowhere, so I quickly placed my hands on the insides of my knees and held on for dear life.

After a couple of minutes I could feel things starting to ease, although I was still in pain. I held on and waited. Ten minutes in, the pain disappeared and I was back to normal.

Prime Mover SEL 1
And a story involving Prime Mover from Willow Walker, the lady I first learned Jin Shin Jyutsu from….

“Earlier this year, I attended a three-day, 5 Rhythm Dance Workshop. Two hours into the second day, my right knee completely locked up, and would not bend without extreme effort and pain. I tried to shake it out, and dance my way through it. But instead of getting better, it just got worse.

I thought, “How am I going to dance the rest of today and tomorrow when my knee won’t bend?!?” Even worse than the sharp pain, was the thought that I would have to stop dancing for the weekend. Anyone who knows me well knows that this is a serious situation.

I sat down on the side of the room to collect myself, and remembered Jin Shin Jyutsu! I started using self-help flows to specifically address the injury first, then the knee in general, and then the specific “Safety Energy Lock” (SEL) where the pain was located. I wanted to create movement and flow around and through my knee, so the SEL could safely open again. I spent about 15 minutes holding places on my body and leg lightly with my hands as I waited for my knee to return to its normal state; the ability to support continual, creative movement on the dance floor.

A SEL acts like a fuse for our electrical body, switching “closed” when it gets overloaded. When that happens, our energy flow may accumulate there, manifesting as physical pain. Boy, did it ever!

Out of the 26 SELs on each side of our body, the very first one can be found on the inside of the knee. It is known as “The Prime Mover.” And no wonder. You literally cannot move forward without it!

The music ended about the time I finished my self-help flows, and we were invited to dance/move across the floor, propelled by our hips. My knee was still very stiff, and hurt at the slightest movement, and at first I wasn’t sure I could stand the pain. But the alternative of not dancing the rest of the weekend was just not an option. So, I went for it, trusting Jin Shin Jyutsu to open the flow of energy in my body and restore harmony once again.

After crossing the floor once, my knee felt a little less stiff and painful. By the end of the exercise 30 minutes later, my knee was back to normal; 100% pain free with complete range of motion. It continued to feel great, and provided eight more hours of ecstatic dancing without complaint that weekend.

I’ve been holding my 1’s more often this past month myself, and the shifts so far have been absolutely amazing. Now that I have experienced what the Prime Mover can do both within and around my body, I plan to continue holding my 1’s as often as possible, regardless of whether my knee is injured or not.

Anyone and everyone can use Jin Shin Jyutsu to help themselves and others. In fact, you already do and you just don’t know it. Our bodies know what to do when we just let them be.

I feel so blessed to know about this resource that allows us to help ourselves with nothing more than our hands, our intention to help ourselves, awareness of our energetic body, and a little bit of time. So simple. So beautiful.” — Willow

There’s also a story told of a man who was on the verge of total financial collapse, standing to lose everything if his company’s business didn’t soon turn around. His wife knew someone who knew Mary Burmeister, the woman who brought Jin Shin Jyutsu® to the west. When Mary was asked how he could help himself, she recommended that he hold the inside of his knees for an hour each day every day for a month. And so he did. During those 30 days, things shifted dramatically in every part of his life, and he achieved his greatest financial success to date!

And here’s a short little video I found that gives you a quick tutorial on the primary finger holds mentioned in my previous post on JSJ, as well as some interesting input about the Prime Mover/SEL # 1, including how it can be used in place of the Heimlich maneuver in certain situations:

 

Also, Astrid offers a free download of a 15-page booklet on JSJ on her website. You can check it out here.

10/26/19 UPDATE: A friend read this post and asked me exactly where SEL #1 was, because she wanted to be sure she was holding the right place. I just checked my book The Touch of Healing, which I highly recommend for people interested in JSJ; it’s what we used as a reference for the JSJ class I took a number of years ago. Anyway, I thought I would share the info that I gave her, in case anyone else had the same question.

The book says “SEL #1/Prime Mover is located on the inside of each knee, right at the bulge, where the thigh and shinbone connect. It unifies the descending energy (which travels down the front of the body) w/ the ascending energy (which flows up the back) and thus harmonizes from head to toe. SEL #1 is considered ‘the prime mover’ connecting extreme heights w/ extreme depths. It helps all forms of abdominal distress (bloating, discomfort, etc) and headaches. It also promotes deeper and easier breathing.”

The book also mentions “There is no need to be overly concerned w/ precision. There is a 3 inch effective radius around every SEL. In time, as one’s awareness grows, one may learn to ‘bull’s-eye,’ but this is not essential.”

Fat Flush Juice Recipe & Free Weight Loss Training

 

Here’s a great recipe and offer of a free weight loss training from Ross Bridgeford of LiveEnergized.com…..

Fat Flush Juice

Alkaline Recipe #182: Fat Flush Juice

This fat-fighting, nutrient-dense juice is one of my absolute favorites. I love it.

It tastes great, really, really great and it contains just five ingredients. But every single one of them is nutritious, alkalizing and simply brilliant for weight loss.

Before we get into the juice recipe, let’s take a little look at what each of these powerhouse ingredients can do for you:

  • Baby Spinach: spinach is a rich source of the chlorophyll-containing parts of the green plant cell, called thylakoids. Studies have shown that these thylakoid cells contain a hundred different membrane proteins, as well as various vitamins (A, E and K) and antioxidants like carotenoids, lutein, zeaxanthin, and chlorophyll.This mixture of plant compounds found in the thylakoids have been proven to prevent cravings, increase satiety (2) (feeling fuller for longer), balance blood glucose (3) and increase the efficiency of fat digestion (4) (to make you digest fat in the way the body USES it instead of stores it). Juicing spinach is possibly the best way of getting a concentrated hit of these amazing thylakoids.
  • Kale: also rich in chlorophyll, Kale is a powerful detoxification agent in the body, and when the body can release toxins, it also releases fat.

    New research has also shown that the ITCs made from kale’s glucosinolates can help regulate detox at a genetic level.  Kale is also ridiculously rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, preventing both oxidative stress and inflammation – both of which directly lead to poor blood-glucose regulation, excessive insulin release, a stressed pancreas, a loss of the body’s ability to burn fat as fuel, inflammation in the digestive tract and more.

  • Beetroot: beets also contain antioxidant, anti-inflammatory phyto-nutrients and the most powerful in beets are betalains, and they provide similar benefits as kale, above.However, beetroot is also a diuretic helping the body rid itself water retention. The betaine in beetroot has also been proven to help lower blood pressure, and reduce fatty deposits in the liver, both of which can be important for people who are already in an overweight category.
  • Cucumber: also a highly alkaline, a diuretic, an anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant but also now known to contain lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol — three lignans that have a strong history of research in connection with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Cinnamon: helps control blood sugar levels, improves how your body uses insulin, controls hunger and cravings and plays a key role in how your body uses stored fat. An all-round weight loss powerhouse!

All in all, that is five high-alkaline, powerful, weight-loss nutrients that ALSO fight inflammation, provide protective antioxidants, a rich source of chlorophyll…and together taste DELICIOUS!

You Really SHOULD Be Using Calcium Bentonite Clay!

 

I’ve done several posts about using  triple-swelling calcium bentonite clay and, if you have never used it as a self-help health aid, you’re really missing out. It has so many uses and benefits I think every household should have some on hand. I’ve put together some of the testimonials I’ve received from being on Perry Arledge’s mailing list (she used to offer free seminars on working with clay and is a real expert in the field) to help convince you to give it a try. It really IS amazing what working with this special clay can help with health-wise!

You can use it internally, externally, on your kids, your pet, your garden and more…..

 

13 Year Illness Gone After A Month On Clay

I am turning 25 in just a few days and have been taking the clay internally three times a day for a month now. I have been sick on and off for 13 years and the traditional doctors could never find a cure for me. I had just accepted that I had a sickly body and a weak immune system. I had bald spots and began fainting at the age of 12, then at 20 I became nauseous all of the time. When I graduated from college, I was so sick that I needed to take some time off before obtaining my masters degree. I began researching different ways to detoxify my body. I started getting colonics, bought an infrared sauna, and eating raw food. But it was only when I started drinking a Calcium Bentonite clay that I started feeling like a normal human being for the first time in 13 years!!! After 3 weeks, I had an energy surge. I started wanting to do things I hadn’t wanted to do in a long, long time…simple things like take a hike with my family. This clay has given me back my passion to live my life to the fullest. Before the clay, I was sick, exhausted, and depressed. Now, I feel alive! People are even saying how good my skin looks! Like I have a glow!! I will, without a doubt, be a lifelong customer. Anytime I have any questions, I just call Perry A. and she answers my calls directly and with such kindness and grace. This clay truly saved my life.

Cat Tumors Disappear with Clay

This summer I participated in one of your teleseminars and submitted a question about whether the clay could heal the large (cancerous-looking) bleeding tumor on my cat’s tail.   When the vet shaved it, it looked like a rotten potato attached to his tail –much bigger than his actual tail, so it could not be removed – so the only thing they could offer was amputation.  Well I did not want to do that unless it meant life or death and there were absolutely no other options, so I started using the clay in the meantime just to stop the messy bleeding.

Well, long story short, my cat cooperated well with me applying the clay and it really helped stop the bleeding.  However, in time an oozing hole developed where the bleeding used to be.  I kept that hole packed with clay, and within an incredibly short time the entire huge tumor had just melted away.  The hole is gone now, there is just a tiny bump left that I can feel at this point.  I continue to apply the clay and will do so until there is no hint anything left but his beautiful tail.  Although my cat was never sick from this, he was acting rather old and depressed, but now he has the energy of a kitten again.

I gave a co-worker a small jar of clay for the same purpose as her cat also had a VERY large tumor on its neck. When I checked back last week, she said her cat’s tumor had completely dissolved and was in fact also completely gone!

For both these cats, the vets had no treatments other than risky or disfiguring surgery with no guarantees.  I am so glad that I had already purchased the clay for some other reason I can’t even remember. I plan to start using it more diligently to improve my health and also the more difficult to treat problem my other cat has with sinus infection and gum irritation.  Thanks so much for helping spread the miracle.  We are ALL so very grateful!!!

Gardening With Clay

I had horrific tomato plants full of psyllid nymphs and cucumbers not doing too well.
I have powdered my plants on March 1st and I can’t see any psyllid anymore and cucumbers are looking okay.

On March 2nd I have powdered carrots, leeks, beetroot with clay, as they had rust.
As per today March 22nd,  they all are looking good. My Chicory Witloof has got outside leaves rotting so powdered with clay and 3 days ago still had to get rid of wilting leaves, whether the rotting had started before I sprayed and needs longer to stop the process, I don’t know???

All still needs more observation for longer, but sounds good. I took a plastic jar, opened the lid and drilled holes from inside out and I just shake it. It uses a lot of clay and as I have a very cheap source for gardening…whether to put less clay would work might as well? All experimental.

Clay expert Perry A~’s note:  When preparing garden soil mix or potting soil mix, add a generous handful for pots and much more for beds and mix in well.  Plants will grow faster, healthier, with hardy blooms.  It will kick booty on sandy loam non-clay soils.  Not for acid loving plants

Liver Flukes 

I have been having some pain in my upper stomach all the way down to the pelvis area (clearly my gastro system).  What is interesting is that, like you said, the liquid clay will remove parasites.  Well… after several days of 2 oz 2x day and lots of distilled water with lemon, I have had at least 4 bowel movements containing clearly visible organisms that appear to be Liver Fluke parasites.  After that. my pain went away.

Constipated Cat

I did as you suggested, and simply increased the amount of hydrated clay
I mixed 11 year old cats canned food. Tremendous difference! Big nicely formed
‘tootsie  rolls’ two days in a row, and no more vomit. The clay was all it
took. Her energy is way up. A wild ‘bush bunny’ racing around the house!

Stomach Ulcers and Gall Bladder

I just read the book on clay by Perry A~, even read it to my husband, who has frequent episodes of gastric distress from an ulcer. We decided to give clay a try, the next time he had a problem, I gave 2 oz. to him. His problem resolved within moments, to our great relief. Then, a few nights ago, I ate more greasy food than I should have.  I had my gall bladder removed several years, and the doctor told me to go easy on fried foods.  It’s not usually a problem, since I eat very little fried foods.  When I overdo the greasy foods (which has only happened a few times!) I can hardly move for the horrible abdominal pain.  Well, after the success with my husband, as soon as I began to feel discomfort in my lower abdominal region, I decided to try a swig of the clay solution, too, and very shortly, no more discomfort! – Jo Ann A.

Teacher Notices Change after Autistic Child’s First Detox Bath

As a parent of a child affected by autism – I will try anything (safe) to help my son. I figured I’d give clay a try. Oh my goodness – the changes have been incredible! A few days after my son’s first detox bath his teacher asked me if I gave him a “speech pill”! I’m sure you could imagine my excitement.

I personally know the cost of trying to heal a child and when you find something that works, it’s just an incredible feeling. Again I’m just so thankful I was turned onto this product. Thank you for providing help to our children!!!! Have a beautiful day! – Anna W.

Periodontal Disease

I had periodontal disease with several #8 pockets a year ago. In Oct. of 2011, I started brushing with the dry Living Clay twice a day and at night packing those areas with the clay. At my last dental check-up I now have #4 pockets and healthy gums. He also said my teeth were very nice and white!! So happy with this clay. – Cindy P.

Disc Bulge Problem in Back

I have a disc bulge in my lower back and sacroiliitis…One day I had spent five hours in the yard raking and mulching. When I came in I could barely move: sitting, standing and moving from either position were extremely painful. This is typical of my condition. I had Living Clay prepared, but hadn’t used any yet. I took two ounces and ten minutes later, the pain was GONE. I felt fine the rest of the evening. I was stiff when I woke up in the morning and took two more ounces. I had no pain the rest of the day. Typically pain like I had that evening would have lasted at least a week and may have even caused me to miss that following day of work. I am amazed at the power of this product. -Dawn S.

Yellow Teeth

I have had a real problem with very yellow teeth. This is in part because my teeth are naturally not a bright white, but also because I refuse to put fluoride in my mouth, and I go through phases where I drink a lot of herbal tea. I keep my toothbrush soaking in H2O2 and have tried several kinds of homemade concoctions – usually baking soda-based. None had any impact on my yellow teeth. The other day I mixed some dry clay with some baking soda, added a wee bit of H2O2, vegetable glycerin, Stevia power, and essential oil of peppermint. The only real difference was the clay. After 3 days I noticed that my teeth were several shades whiter. I was so happy. I’m still using it and expecting even better results as time goes by. Chloie L.

Constant Diarrhea

In October 2016, I started to have pretty well constant diarrhea. Saw my GP (Australian name for a non specialist MD.) and she put me on various medications with zero results.
She went on holidays and I saw another GP. She took me off all medications, to see what would happen. Went on unabated and needed a colonoscopy. Then I remembered the clay.

I started to take liquid clay, 3-4 oz, 3 times a day and used hydrated clay on relevant areas, in early February 2017. The diarrhea stopped completely in one and a half days, never to return, and it is now April! Never had the colonoscopy.

I did however have a severe detox reaction, with beetroot red swollen glands under my armpits, so I put clay packs there as well and they too are now history.

PERSONAL NOTE: The part about the swollen glands reminds me of my own experience working with clay. I did the 21 day 3 times a day protocol and started feeling painful little lumps forming under the skin in my armpits, but didn’t really equate it to the clay until I upped the dose as given in the directions when dealing with more serious/long-standing conditions and that seemed to be too much for my body to handle fairly comfortably. The lumps rose to the surface and began oozing pus, with more lumps forming as others would be getting better. 

Not a fun or comfortable experience, to say the least, especially since it was the middle of summer when armpits are more prone to get sweaty. I stopped using the clay for awhile and it actually took several months before things started easing up. But I’ve had a number of health issues and a low level infection and congested lymph for years, so I’m sure that’s part of why I had such an extreme reaction. Even with other types of cleansing and detoxing I’d done, it was like the clay was the only thing that reached things at a deeper level that had been accumulating for a long time. The one good thing is the experience showed me how truly powerful using the clay can be.

FYI, the armpits (and groin) are major areas where lymph collects, so I think that’s why I had the reaction there. But I couldn’t understand why my left armpit was affected so much more than my right one, until I happened to read somewhere that, for some reason, the body naturally has a much greater percentage of lymph nodes and activity there than on the right-side. I’d never realized that before!

Also, if you plan on using the clay for detoxing baths, I highly recommend ordering from Even Better Now for 100% pure sodium bentonite clay, which has the highest cation exchange capacity of any bathing clay tested on the market. It is hypoallergenic and contains no excipients or fillers, and is free of bacteria, viruses, molds or yeasts, and easily disperses in water, with virtually no clumping. Unlike other bathing clays, EBN® Cleansing Clay can be safely rinsed down the drain, with no drain guards or special cleaning or clay dissolving agents required. 

p. s. The above testimonials I listed are just a few I’ve received by being on Perry A’s mailing list. She no longer offers the free webinars on using clay and sold her company, but you can check out her archive of information and sign up to get on her mailing list at the bottom of the site she still hosts. She also offers a books and if you end up using her archive or getting on her list, I highly recommend donating a little something to help her defray the cost of the great wealth of information she is offering to people for free.
