Effective Cellular Hydration.. AlkaLIZED not AlkaLINE.

Hey Warriors.
Happy Monday! Another couple weeks has gone by, which means it’s time for our bimonthly Blog. So much has been happening in our world the past four months, which I truly believe it to be an awakening of deep corruption that has been going on for some time.  I think next month I’m going to chat about some emotional components of these surprise seasons because after all emotions are 1/3 of our health.

—————-
This week we are talking all about hydration.  Not only hydration but cellular hydration.  A big difference there. There are many facets to health and longevity and if you’ve been here for awhile you know that I talk about many of those in different ways.  Brain healing, food quality, electricity, emotions….. Well today we are digging into hydration.
So let’s dive in..

Did you now that 71% of the earth is water, and our bodies are made of 75% water, 75% is inside our cells. 
However, not all water is created equal.  We need water that actually goes into the cells of our body. Tap water is full of contaminants and other chemicals harmful to our body.  Bottle water sometimes may seem like the better option, but the production process is highly unregulated and contains harmful chemicals and hormone disruptors leached from the plastic containers.  It’s also acidic which affects your bodies pH and electrolyte balance. Not to mention plastic destroys our ecosystem.

Well water for those that have it, is a great option. Why? Because the earth breaks the water into smaller particle size units called the ORP(oxidative reductive potential). That ORP being small (or negative) is key.

If you take a handful of grapes, put in them in a colander and rinse them off with water, does the water go into the grapes?
No.  Why?
Because the skin of the grape bounces the water off.  So, guess what happens to most of the water that you drink, the same thing happens in your cells.  Your cells have a skin on the outside that repels most water, meaning  most of the water we drink is peed out.  That’s why a urinalysis is not always very effective at diagnosing, because most of the water you are peeing is the same water you drank 20 minutes ago, it’s not exchanging inside the cells. That exchanging process is HUGE for healing. So what’s inside your cells becomes old, stale, stagnant and mold ridden.  We start to rot and rust on the inside out even though we are drinking 6 gallons of water per day.  If the water you are drinking is not small enough in ORP, the old water is not coming out of your cells and the new water is not coming in. This can really hinder our cellular regeneration.  It also really hinders our ability with nutrients to get inside the cell for healing.

Nutrition is key right?  But it is getting in your cells?  We don’t want to pee out all that good nutrition we pay lots of $ for!
Additionally, when we talk about cellular regeneration from EMF’s, radiation and free radicals we have to be able to flush them out. Regular water can’t do that.

For all my exercise people out there (which should be all of you:))
Dehydration of just 3% causes: 18% decline in muscular power, 70% increase in “perceived” fatigue, and 12% decrease in reaction time.
I think it’s fair to say if the majority aren’t drinking well water or alkalized water they are dehydrated….

Also,
It’s not about the PH of the water,  you can make PH by adding baking soda to the water.  It doesn’t make the water more permeable.  The term you are looking for is alkalized not alkaline.  Water that is not only high pH, but that is a small enough particle size to actually go into your cells.
We know that more alkaline environments are better overall for health and healing.  Although our stomach and small intestine need acidic environments, the rest of our body does not. Acidic environments feed cancer cells. The accumulation of acidic waste products within our body is the process of aging. Therefore,
removing old, stored waste is reverse aging.

Most alkaline water out there is chemically processed to be alkaline.  It’s not a natural process. All the bottled electrolyte alkaline water on the shelves have been tested.  They aren’t really alkaline, and if they are, it’s a chemical process of doing so by adding bicarbonate.  Being here in California, we also hear about the magical carlsbad water.  People come from all over to get alkaline water for healing.  However, actually testing the water, it’s not that alkaline.  It’s better than other water and bottled water, but there is superior alkalinity.

And what about the brain?  The brain is 73% water.  How do we replenish the cells of the brain with hydration?  Nobody ever thinks of brain dehydration, but it happens.

So, whats the best?  I’ve mentioned well water, and although this is better than most, there is something more superior.
Kangan Water.  

Kangan is a patented water device that not only filtrates your water and gives you different levels of alkalinity so you can use for many different things, but the most important is that particle size!  It’s micro-clustered to get into your cells and hydrate as well as detoxify them. It is water quality association gold seal certified as well.

This amazing device is made in Japan with Japanese technology, and there’s a reason why those in Japan live so long!
It uses electricity to separate the molecules in your water, leaving more anti-oxidizing molecules available to stop oxidation, inflammation and anti-aging.
It connects to your faucet and creates 7 different types of water. First, the water travels through double carbon antibacterial filter, removes contaminants and chlorine.  Next the water passes over 7 electrically charged platinum dipped titanium plates producing kangan and acidic waters.  It’s alkaline and high antioxidant.
Additionally, when you drink reverse osmosis water, it depletes the water of minerals leaving you mineral deficient.  Kangan does not. So you leave in all the good stuff, take out all the bad stuff and create super hydrating antioxidant water.

—-
This is not an infomercial.  I personally have tried so many different waters and just this year paid off a 8,000 water machine that claimed to make antioxidant water.  It didn’t, and grew mold which most water machines do. Kangan is different.  I no longer get that full feeling after drinking water, because before water was just sloshing around, and although taking minerals was still always dehydrated.  Cellular hydration!

There’s so many other uses for this machine as well, as it creates 7 different types of water that you can use to make your own disinfectant, veggies/fruit cleaner (gets out more pesticides that veggies washes), beauty water that’s great for your skin, and increasing pH to detoxify your body.

After paying off the other machine, I was finally able to get mine this week after waiting for so long!  I am beyond excited.  I will be having some jugs in the office but as my office is small I won’t be able to have it in office at this time.  The best way, is to try the water and see how you feel.

For more information about Kangan, Underneath you will find an image with the next informational class. This is not myself, but a colleague who has tested over 80 different water machines and devices. Nothing compares to Kangan.  If you attend you can get two weeks free water to try it out for yourself (if you are local).  This is what I did and said I was never going back!  Mention you heard from Dr. Hamel when you sign up;)  I will be having more information on my website about it very soon!

 

Additionally, here is some research,  but there are SO many studies already been done.

A Genetic Variant Associated with Cancer and the Warburg Effect

A Genetic Variant Associated with Cancer and the Warburg Effect

Hey Warriors.
Happy Fathers Day, (Late) to all you dads reading this!! I hope you truly know how important it is to have fathers in the picture!! I hope you got spoiled and loved yesterday!
First of all I wanted to say thank you for all the replies from last month’s blog about racism and trauma
As we continue on, I hope the conversation continues.

__________________________________

This week we are switching years a little bit from brain talk and talking a little about nutrition.  As many of you know I switched a few years ago to doing solely genetic based nutrition. Why?  Because something was missing in my practice.  Hormone protocols, and detoxification protocols, and gut protocols got some people well but others plateaued, myself included. The world of genetics in itself is fairly new medicine, and we are literally learning more every single week it seems.  I like to look at genetics this way.  We are born with certain genes, but the way those genes actually work or express themselves can be changed. We know they can be changed even through our thoughts and environment.  So one way we look at helping is through nutrition.

The more genetic “variants” we call them there are in a certain pathway, the more that person might have trouble either creating or destroying something.  As the world is not only getting more toxic emotionally, but has been getting physically toxic for years and years, we have to find new ways to help our bodies overcome such constant bombardment, even from the air we breathe.  You’ve heard it before, we live in a toxic soup.  From our air, water, food sources, EMF’s, cleaners to body care.  

This is generally why we are seeing more and more health issues, an overload of toxins, the inability of our bodies to handle it, and inability to create new cells.
What happens when we can’t eliminate and regenerate leads to chronic conditions. 

In the western medical world we are taught to fear the C word.  Even though doctors and researchers have already found cures, and have been using treatments for years saving individuals lives.  I distinctly remember a teacher in my graduate studies who was one of the smartest medical doctors and microbiologist I had ever met.  He told me, Rachel we already know the cures to cancer.  He had served on some of the most prestigious cancer facilities in northern california.  But why was that not broadcasted?  He said he was not allowed to tell, and as we all know that industry makes billions every year.
I have never said nor will I ever that I treat cancer, because I don’t.  I help the body regain balance.  We all in fact have cancer cells.  Yes you have them now.  The way we deal with them and regenerate is what leads to it progressing.  What he eat, how we think, our surroundings, and what we inject in us.  The typical western route is either radiation or chemotherapy.  And although I support all my patients decisions, I don’t believe injections or taking toxic chemicals is the answer.  How can it be “good” to ingest chemicals? Again, I support all decisions, but remember this is a billion dollar industry.

Let’s talk a little bit about what is called the Warburg Effect. 

If you didn’t know, cancer cells LIVE and feed off glucose.  That is why a huge thing to cut down for most individuals is their sugar intake to starve it.  Cancer is defined by uncontrollable cell growth and division, so cancer cells need the building blocks and energy to make new cells much faster than healthy cells do. They rely heavily on the glucose and rapidly convert it to pyruvate via a process called glycolysis.  The Warburg effect is just that.  Cancer cells exhibit glucose fermentation even when enough oxygen is available to properly utilize.
In 2012, scientists wanted to know what the link was, so research commenced.  

When we look at genetic variants, we are looking specifically at something called enzymes. Enzymes either speed up a reaction or slow it down.  If the enzyme isn’t working properly, that means that the next step in our body making or utilizing something won’t happen. 

In particular, the scientists looked at a specific enzyme called citrate synthesis(CS). 
Here is a snip of my genetic chart (#3) to just show you where it is.  This enzyme comes in the ENERGY production (ATP) and utilization pathway.

In the study, they silenced or blocked this enzyme and the results are quite important.  The most important was that blocking this enzyme greatly increased (10 times!) migration and proliferation of cancer cells. They also found that inhibiting this enzyme accelerated tumor malignancy.  This is why: CS inhibition causes severe defects in mitochondrial respiration (thats how our energy cells breathe) and switches it to glucose uptake and up-regulates glycolytic metabolism.  You’ve heard me talk over and over again about the importance of oxygen, well here the cells needs oxygen as well and to utilize it. Since the mitochondria cells carry ATP our energy source, this means that ATP too was greatly decreased. Defects in mitochondria may promote tumor malignancy, forcing the cell to revert to the more primitive route of energy production through glycolysis.

Of course theres a lot more that is said in this study, and I will give the link if you choose to read it all, but this one enzyme is pretty huge increasing the risk for cancer. Since the body works as a unit it also blocks things further down the line that need to function as well.  One is cholesterol breakdown for hormone regulation and the electron transport chain which in the end creates that ATP (Energy).  I’m sure looking at that Kreb’s Cycle can bring back some high school chemistry days.  A lot goes into it, but that CITRATE up top is the key to get it started.  If we don’t have ATP we can’t regenerate new cells.  That means cancer cells can start to take over.  ATP can modulate the cell growth and bioenergetic metabolism of tumor cells, at least in part, through suppression of AMPK/p38 MAPK and ERK1 signaling and glycolytic enzyme expression and activation of p53 function ( sorry a lot of chemistry here, but just means more ATP less cancer cells).

So, if someone has a genetic variant in this enzymes ability to function, that can cause some pretty huge complications wouldn’t you think?  This is definitely a different way of looking at cancer.

What if we could optimize this enzymes function for those that have a compromised pathway?  With this enzyme working better, and energy production with oxygen utilization working more effectively it makes sense to think that will modulate proper cell growth and death.

This is the beauty of looking at specific chemical reactions in the body.  Testing for this gene can be a big find for anyone not only for treatment but also for prevention.  How many individuals have issues with cholesterol usually being too high, or gallbladder or weight/hormone issues?  That comes in here too.

Once knowing this, finding the night nutrient to help that enzyme properly work is the key.

When we get the body working better it heals.  Again we are looking at the body as a whole picture.  We need to look at toxin intake, diet and environment of course, but we can also help that person’s body function better, resulting in less availability of improper cell growth.

If you haven’t done my genetic nutrition yet, I suggest you do!  It’s been a big game changer for many.  It can take some time to figure out the perfect combo as we are learning more every month about genes, but already to success stories are flowing.

Look at how the body is functioning, not necessarily the “diagnosis”.  There you will find the answers.

OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Frankincense.

Frankincense might not just reduce inflammation. It may also attack cancer cells directly.

This, say some researchers. could benefit people with leukemia and other types of cancer.

One of the challenges of cancer treatment is that, unlike bacteria or viruses, cancer cells are not foreign invaders. Instead, cancer occurs when the body’s cells grow out of control, attacking healthy tissue.

This process makes it difficult to fight cancer without also killing healthy cells. In fact, most cancer treatments do kill healthy cells.

Chemotherapy for example, kills many healthy cells as it fights cancer. This is why people often lose their hair, experience nausea, and become more vulnerable to infection during chemotherapy.

Some evidence suggests that frankincense might target cancer cells without harming healthy cells.

A laboratory study of bladder cancer, published in 2009, looked at how frankincense affected cultures of normal and cancerous bladder cells. The oil targeted cancerous cells, but it did not destroy healthy cells.

In 2015, further lab research found similar effects in breast cancer. The investigators found that frankincense could kill breast cancer cells and disrupt the growth of future cancer cells.

In 2016, scientist describing the properties of frankincense noted that it contains substances that have anti-tumor properties. These could prevent cancer cells from growing and lead to controlled cell death, or apoptosis.

These are early results, but they offer hope that substances that occur in frankincense might one day fight some forms of cancer without the potentially life-threatening effects of chemotherapy.

That is all for now.
have a happy and healthy week!

Persistent Impact of Trauma: Biological Implications

Hey Warriors.
I know it’s been a few weeks, so thanks for being patient!  It has definitely been a heavy past couple of weeks, and being a practitioner it’s hard to talk about health topics when more pressing issues have been at hand.

We know that this has been a long overdue injustice just coming to the surface.  
So many things I learned in school about healthcare always targeted those of color with increased risk for so many health conditions.  We do know there is white privilege, poverty leading to improper food availability and quality of food in African American neighborhoods consisting of mainly fast food and no access to healthier options.  This makes a huge impact as you can imagine in being able to live a healthy lifestyle.  But what about the other factors?  What about trauma?  What does that do biologically to one’s body over time… What does that do to a race overtime? 

If we look back in history of other injustices that have happened with the Native Americans and holocaust era, an impact still remains on those families that experienced the trauma. The past for many Native Americans is weaved into their modern lives. Racial and historical  experiences challenge us as clinicians: how can we understand the persistent impact of trauma—not just on the individuals affected but on the children of survivors and even on additional generations?

Researchers wanted to know more about this and began studying the aftermath of the holocaust. Many after the holocaust were diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder. In the years that followed, accounts circulated of children of survivors who were also severely affected, but were believed to be from behavioral causes with the parents neglect.  Decades later, more research was conducted using modern tools and found many biological signs associated with trauma.   Interestingly, their children showed the same biological and epigenetic markers. On one hand, this demonstrated that the syndrome seen in the children was not merely behavioral—it was biologically mediated in the same way as their parents’.

It also raised a more profound question: did the children acquire these changes by virtue of their own traumatic experiences (being raised by a PTSD parent)? Or was it possible that there might be some other process at play?

” A team led by Brian Dias and Kerry Ressler developed an animal model that allowed them to tightly control all relevant parameters. First, they fear-conditioned mice to a specific olfactory stimulus (acetophenone). As expected, the mice showed an enhanced fear response to the stimulus smell. They further showed that the observed behavioral change was mediated by epigenetic upregulation of the acetophenone receptor. This was all consistent with previously published literature.

What they found next was truly stunning. The team extracted sperm from the fear-conditioned mice, performed in vitro fertilization, and then raised the offspring separately from the biological fathers. Extraordinarily, these offspring—and another generation beyond them—demonstrated increased fear responses to acetophenone. Moreover, their sensitivity stemmed from the same increased expression of the olfactory receptor, owing to epigenetic changes. These findings offered potential mechanistic proof that a learned behavior could be passed from one generation to the next via an epigenetic mechanism. In addition, they demonstrated the plausibility of Yehuda’s suggestion that biological symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder could be passed directly from one generation to the next.”

Wow.. Right?  I’ve also read studies prior that stated that emotional traumas can track back several generations, without us even knowing.

I raise this topic today not to dishearten our colored communities, as I have so much love and righteous anger for what has been happening.  This is to say that a healthy lifestyle seems impossible for some communities because of decades of trauma. This means that pain from trauma does not cease with death but may rather be woven into the (epi-)genetic architecture of generations that follow. Think about the genetic changes, the brain changes that occur.  It always shocks me when generational traumas come up in a session with a client as to what they can be holding onto.

  What if our healthcare system started to address this? 
I know, it would take a lot more things first. Like access to the care to for one.

HOPE.

There is also reason for hope: follow-up data from the mouse studies discussed above has shown that exposure therapy before mating appears to reverse the next generation’s inheritance of the behavioral and neurobiological marks of the previous trauma.  Perhaps there are ways in humans to heal (or at least prevent further transmission of) such wounds. I know this to be true.  Generational holds can be broken.  know this is not a typical health talk today, but it’s a REAL talk. 

As clinicians we must acknowledge and appreciate the biological implications of trauma, even without being a psychologist or psychiatrist. Trauma can assimilate in the body as pain.  And who comes to us for pain? EVERYONE. Furthermore, we need to increase our understanding of those who suffer from their ancestors’ traumatic experiences or current ones. Too many in the healthcare industry try to treat emotional ailments with physical medicine.  Yes means for food and availability of healthier options is of vital importance, but also during this time I think more than ever need to realize just the trauma aspect this has had on so many generations for too long. Generational fear, living in a free country that enslaves people.

The amazing thing about epi-genetics is you can change them.  We do that through mindset and nutrition and environment all the time.  Our hope is through this movement that things actually do change, they have to!  I think we are seeing some good come out, but I do believe we all need to not be silent anymore. And clinicians definitely need to do better. 

To all those who have been peacefully marching I support you.  To all my colored patients, I hope you know I love you and will continue to help spread the word.
Lastly,
I highly recommend you read the book white fragility for more information about this topic.  Please know that I am not discrediting those not of color that have gone through hardship or trauma either.

Share this to other healthcare providers.  They may need to start taking a different approach.

Also, thank you to all who gave gifts and wished me happy birthday last week.  I appreciate you all!

That is all for now.

Wishing you a happy and healthy week.

A strong backside revolves around function of this system.

Hey Warriors.
Happy Monday!  I hope you are thriving in this season.  I know this last week especially here in California is getting really crazy.  I will say, I am proud of people standing up for what is right through this and finally seeing the backstory behind it. I hope for the sake of our economy and so many businesses that took so long and so many tears to build will begin to regain strength again.  And for those corrupt in high places to come down! AMEN!

_____________________________
We’re gonna take a break from all that immunity talk and regeneration talk, and talk about something that you are probably all interested in, your backside!! LOL. 

I’m sure with working from home, we’ve all been in positions that aren’t our norms, but I have seen people be way more active during this season which is great!

A common scenario I see in my practice is patient’s coming in with an inability to activate their backside. 
That means the back and the glutes(butt).  The muscles that keep us upright. 
If you read my last blog, I talked extensively about how airway compromise causes problems in the backside, always trying to keep you upright.  With airway people they have this forward head posture because they can’t adequately breathe, which means their backside is constantly tight (tight muscles mean weak nerve input) trying to keep them upright to fight gravity.

As you can imagine, most of my airway people are going to be the main candidates for this blog, but it also applies to many that have tightness in their back, shoulders and pelvis.

This is the key to proper activation of your backside:  Bloodflow and Lymphatic Flow. 

Let me explain.
Strong muscles, ANY muscles that are strong need blood flow.  The actual best way to grow a muscle’s strength is to increase blood flow to that area. 
One of the best ways to increase blood flow to the backside, is to get blood flow working better, which comes from the FRONT.

If you have struggled with weakness or pain in your Glute muscles (butt muscles) or your back after all the exercises and therapy, it’s probably time to change your strategy right?! 
Muscles only work as well as they BREATHE, which means oxygen and blood flow have to be able to reach them to work like they are supposed to.
Here is an analogy:  Rivers and Streams.  Streams will dry up if the source (the river), gets depleted.
We start working not downstream, we start at the top, which is our arteries and the capillaries in our circulatory system. 

Most individuals that don’t have good blood/lymph flow to the glutes will say: “when they do hip and glute muscle work or strengthening that they get increasing tension in their groin area or in the front of their hip (thats the front side). ”

Let me explain why:

There is a region in the anterior part of the body where a lot of buildup happens in circulation and lymphatic flow.
This is the area where the biggest lymph node is in our body, which is about 3-4 inches above your belly button. Thats the green dot in the picture.


(not my image)
That green line (representing the lymphatic system) then has to drain up and under the left collarbone into our subclavian vein.  That is the transferred into the heart, stomach and other organs. 
If there is a BIG blockage here, the lymphatic and furthermore circulation will be impaired.
Working this area, will help open up this channel and the streams down below it.

Another example.  The inguinal/groin area.


(not my image)

All of the draining from the lower body has to come through the groin area. See those two red areas?  Big Rivers there.  We need the FRONT open and flowing to help the back.

No muscle or organ in the body works alone. 

If you want a stronger backside, yes you do have to engage it and activate those muscles properly (nerve help and trainers), but first you have to make sure that the “flow” is getting to that muscle! 
 Ok, doc.. How do we do that?

Well, you might have got the hint by now, but you have to work on the FRONT side. 
Constantly working the backside and stretching the backside won’t be your answer if it’s a frontside issue. 

Most commonly, when someone has a glute or low back issue, most physical therapist and trainers will say they have a “weak core”, which could and is usually true, but strengthening the core can be difficult when there is a backup in circulation.  We need to work first on making those stuck “flow” areas free then can stabilize.

For most of you airway people that means we have to address the entire front line from your head, tongue tie (if you have it), neck and collarbone, down to that big lymph node near your belly button (diaphragm tension), your hip flexors and down to the front of your shins.  LOTS of blood flow and lymphatic stuff is in there!

I do this first by realigning your entire body.  Remember a stuck joint (even in your head), prevents blood flow.  This also will ensure that the muscles are getting proper information from the nerves.  So we just do this first:)

Then, we can work on getting the lymphatic system working more with work right along the surface of the skin including the lymphatic organs. This is done through gentle work along those nodes and organs, and sometimes doing muscle work if the fascia is stuck around where the nodes are.

NOTE here:  There are some places I cannot get to and refer out for.  For instance, if there is internal scar tissue or pelvic floor imbalances, I must refer for this section to get that anterior pelvic section working better.  Pelvic Floor therapists can be HUGE resources for this part. With internal scar tissue, it will be a huge problem for blood flow to the glute region.

Additionally, maybe a restriction in the flow is because one of those organs isn’t draining properly?  You can work on them doing body work to get the “flow” happening, but also sometimes nutritional protocols are needed to help take the burden off those organs and get digestion working more efficiently.

I’ve had so many patients over the years say that after working with their airway and front side of their body that they feel they can activate their glutes so much more!  

So, I encourage you.  If this is You.  It’s time to change your strategy!  You need a proper front AND back sides working together to create balance within your body.  Usually the issues are never where you think they are.
Problem with your backside?  Work on the front side (loosening and getting circulation flowing) then stimulate and strengthen those back muscles and see how you feel!

That is all for now.

 

Have a happy and healthy week.

 

 

Best,

Dr. hamel

 

The Spleen- Master of our Immune System

Hey warriors.  Hope you are all making the best of this season of being home.  It’s definitely a weird season to say the least. If you’ve been following along my social media, i’ve been trying to bring real truth of what’s happening, and just hoping the hype will decrease and we can get back to our economy!

Needless to say, this season and all season we should always try and keep our immune system strong as much as we can! We really are surrounded all the time from different infections, and now with the increase in radiation from 5G and so many chemtrails, our best bet is to boost our immune system as much as possible.

Even though we are talking about the spleen today (it’s an organ), what’s also important to mention is that no system and no organ act alone.  So, even though we will focus on the spleen I’m going to add in information of other systems that can be affected as well.

Mantak Chia says ” unless an organ problem is truly serious, it will usually show up first within a muscle”
How true! This could build up for many years, soreness or buildup in muscles, tightness protection or guarding with an organ with underlying inflammation, then the body recruits the muscular system to tighten up and protect you.  Usually we treat this as a muscle problem when it is an organ problem.

The spleen is on the left hand side of our rib cage, next the the stomach and pancreas.
The spleen does many many things and is the largest organ in our lymphatic system (our sewage system/detoxification system).
-It also filters the blood removing old dead red blood cells from the body
-It creates White blood cells, very important for removing infections (ALL INFECTIONS)
Lymphocytes and macrophages to fight infections all the time (currently fighting                 infections right  now you probably don’t know that you have).
-saves iron so it can be used by other red blood cells (does this by removing dead ones).       A lot of  people have iron deficiency, and instead of taking supplementation, it could be         because of a spleen issue not working well.
part of the vagal splenic pathway (cranial nerve 10), puts you into relaxation so that           you can heal, decreases cytokines (inflammatory markers) in the entire body.
sympathetic vagus nerve connection, which is helpful for people that have                               fibromyalgia and chronic  fatigue.  You can get someone into parasympathetic (calm)             just  by working with the spleen!

Most people have GI issues from stress and toxic load which creates leaky gut. The spleen is a big part of the lymphatic system and when it can’t keep up with all the excess stress and toxins we are under it starts to tighten and has dysfunction…

Here are some signs of possible spleen and stomach issues:

  • recurrent candida infections tied to low stomach acid (could be genetic!) and low spleen function.  Chronic UTI’s are common here (most UTI can be from fungal, which antibiotics will make it worse).
  • allergies from making antibodies to fight underlying antigens (TH2 immune system response) Puffy and Bloated.
  • high blood pressure from too many old RBC’s and not enough WBC’s makes for thicker viscosity and harder to move.  (hard time delivering oxygen to the tissues)
  • decreased range of motion in the shoulder, neck, hip and thoracic spine- WHAT? YES.
  • oblique muscle dysfunction– usually both work together
  • tiredness, fatigue, lethargy, poor oxygenation from too many old red blood cells
  • indigestion
  • poor lymphatic drainage– gain a lot of excess body fat, you become more toxic
  • Swollen tongue, with teeth ridges on the sides (can also be from tiny mouth) scalloping
  • lines, ridges and marks on outside corners of your eyes
  • jaundice from increased bilirubin
  • chronic tightness/aching from left side ribcage
  • easy bruising/bleeding
  • overload of the liver because of insufficient spleen, more toxins because the liver is already sluggish
  • EMOTION– excessive worry/anxiety.  THIS IS WHY WE SHOULDN’T STRESS ABOUT VIRUSES.
The lymphatic system is our soldiers of defense. Lymph nodes trap viruses, bacteria, toxins, cancer cells and metabolic waste.

If all those above are not able to get out of your body, it stays in your body, and makes your musculoskeletal system more vulnerable because now you are in a state of chronic inflammation, which will manifest as pain.  It will also settle in the area where you’ve had a problem for a long time.  Inflammation always goes to your weakest link. 

When oxygen is available for every unit of fatty acids(lymphatic system/spleen shuttles them) through our energy cycle in our body, we create 38 molecules of ATP, without oxygen we make 2.   ATP=ENERGY.  If you’ve been following me awhile I talk about energy ALOT, it’s so important.  Not only do we want to look at genetics of how your energy pathway is working, but also look at organ motion.

If you want all your toxin strategies in your body to work, you want to take care of the center which is the blood/lymph.  Which organ plays to most part in this?  Spleen. 
You can live without your spleen, but all the surrounding organs and systems have to work about 10X harder to make up for not having one.

Anytime you move, your organs SHOULD move as well.  The organs in general are pretty jammed packed into the abdominal cavity, but are really reliant on the diaphragm moving.

So, one of the first things you can do for your spleen and organs is to get efficient at diaphragmatic breathing, which is used the most through nasal breathing. It helps pain everywhere because all the organs are getting movement! They like that:)

Check out this video for proper diaphragm breathing.

The spleen attaches to your diaphragm, large intestine, pancreas and left kidney. If we move the spleen we can affect all these organs.  They all move together.  But look up again at the location of all those organs we are talking about under the rib cage.  IF those organs don’t move, guess what else won’t move effectively?  The middle back (or thoracic spine) and your hips with rotation.  Most people have a problem with rotation that I see, because of the tension in the abdominal cavity.

All these planes of motion, even just bending down touching toes, those organs have to glide meaning lifting and lowering for you to do that!  If you can’t, maybe it’s that those organs aren’t moving well, or the blood flow into your muscles isn’t adequate because of not enough oxygen?  We know that sitting definitely causes tight muscles, causing lack of blood flow and oxygen, but these are other options.

Since the spleen is on the left side of the body, and it is restricted it can actually cause restriction on the entire side of the body!. There’s something called fascial lines that all these systems connect together (see below). I’ve seen organ restriction causing left sided neck/shoulder pain, or left hip pain/weakness. Usually the Oblique muscles are weak.

You have to think in bigger terms here.  The body when it compensates definitely doesn’t always makes “sense” to us.  Why are you treating here, when I have pain here?  Is a common question.
You have to get out of your head making “sense”.  All these connections make your body compensate however it wants in that weakest link!

If someone comes in with some of those symptoms listed above, we look at possible spleen involvement.  You can have injuries on the inside (organs) and outside.

Of course we would deal with the actual sites and make sure they are good, but we want to actually start to reset the spleen as well. 

1. The first I mentioned is that diaphragmatic breathing
2. Go to your big toe on each side, on the corner nail bed and rub with a finger- 30 seconds to a minute
3. Underneath the armpits, about halfway down your arm (to find the spot), there’s another spleen point, you will want to rub that. It can be extremely tender here, a lot of lymph is there! 30 seconds to a minute
4. Put your fingers underneath your left ribcage and scoop your hand down about 5 times toward the opposite hip (you’ll need someone to help you).
5. Pump the spleen, I will have to help you with this one, but it’s a vibration that gets the spleen moving.
6. NASAL BREATHING!  If you can’t nasal breathe, you need to, LET’S talk. You will probably need cranial care!! When you breathe through your nose, you breathe through your diaphragm, and into the lower part of your lungs (create platelets).  You need nitric oxide to vasodilate your blood vessels, less stress on your heart and more oxygen for you! It’s important!
7. If the spleen is a constant issue for someone, we need to look into genetic factors, detoxification issues and hidden pathogens.  Movement helps tremendously, but other things clog it up as well, so we must also look at the entirety of the picture.   GOOD NEWS as well!  I’m able to do virtual online genetic testing sessions!!  I created a youtube video about how that process works, so you can take a look here:

That is all for now.

Have a happy and healthy week!
