1) LEARN PURE REIKI


Remember the movie Avatar? Where all those blue people were connected by an “energy”? They were able to communicate with plants and animals?


Well, that is not just a fantasy. It turns out that kind of “energy” is real.


Deepak Chopra wrote about a study, where scientists saw monkeys dipping potatoes in saltwater before eating it. Then they saw the rest of the tribe doing it.


Pretty logical so far right?


But get this: Monkeys in different parts of the WORLD started dipping potatoes in salt water. There was no way they could have communicated with each other.


The only explanation was that they communicated through an invisible, “intelligent energy.” The Japanese call this energy “Ki”. It stands for “Life Force”


In fact, a man named Mikao Usui developed a SYSTEM of healing called Reiki.

A man named Mikao Usui developed a SYSTEM of healing called Reiki.

According to him he already had this power, but did not realize it. And that’s why we don’t have to spend too much time learning it. Because we already have it.


We just need to recognize it and release it.

2) 7 FLOWER REMEDIES FOR DEPRESSION
by Michelle Schoffro Cook


Everyone feels down sometimes. Perhaps  you’re overwhelmed, exhausted from chronic illness, or dealing with life circumstances that feel hopeless.  Of course, you should always consult a doctor if you experience depression, particularly if you have suicidal thoughts or tendencies, or can’t cope with life.  But, if you just need a little support from a natural remedy to help you through one of the inevitable rough patches in life, Bach flower remedies can help.


Edward Bach was a medical doctor and one of the earliest homeopaths at the beginning of the twentieth century.  Disillusioned by modern medicine, he believed that every physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual symptom offered clues as to what we need to restore balance.  Over time,  he discovered flower remedies.


Following are some of Bach’s flower remedies for depression.  Select the remedy or remedies that best match how you are feeling.  You can take one or more remedies.  Simply add four drops of the remedy to a glass of water and sip throughout the day.  Alternatively, take two drops under the tongue four times a day or as necessary.


Elm
When you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed because you are overworked or have too many responsibilities, Elm is the remedy of choice.
Gentian
When you feel pessimistic, discouraged, or have lost faith.  It is used for depression when a person knows the reason for his or her sadness.
Gorse
When you feel hopeless, that there is nothing that can be done for you, or resigned to your less-than-ideal fate, gorse may be helpful.
Mustard
Mustard is used for sadness or depression that has no apparent cause.  It feels like a dark cloud has blocked out happiness and joy.
Next: Learn the remedies for negativity, inner transformation.
Sweet Chestnut
Selected for feelings of hopelessness, Sweet Chestnut reflects a long, courageous battle that feels lost.  It is particularly suited when it feels like an inner transformation is occurring and a “dying off” of a person’s old self is taking place.
Willow
Willow is best suited for negativity and a tendency to blame others for the problems in life.  Alternatively, if your sadness is linked to a grudge that you’re holding onto but would like to let go of, Willow is a good choice.
Rescue Remedy
When you’re not sure which remedy to choose, Rescue remedy is a good choice.  It is a combination of five remedies and is used to help manage stress, trauma, and, of course, sadness.


Bach flower remedies should never replace qualified medical care.  The above information is provided for educational purposes and is not intended for diagnosis or treatment.

3) TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
by Cathy Wong, ND


Trigger point therapy is an alternative therapy that focuses on detecting and releasing trigger points. Located in the skeletal muscle, trigger points are spots that produce pain when compressed. In many cases, trigger points form as a result of trauma to the muscle fibers.


Typically used to treat pain-related conditions, trigger point therapy is sometimes referred to as myofascial trigger point therapy or neuromuscular therapy. A number of techniques can be used to release trigger points, including massage therapy, chiropractic care, and dry needling.


Uses for Trigger Point Therapy


Trigger point therapy is used to treat a number of chronic pain conditions, including:
* headache
* temporomandibular joint pain
* low back pain


Trigger Point Therapy vs. Traditional Acupuncture


One common form of trigger point therapy is dry needling, a technique that involves inserting a needle (without medication or injection) into trigger points. Dry needling should not be confused with traditional acupuncture, a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves using needles to stimulate points thought to connect with pathways that carry vital energy (or "chi") throughout the body.


While there is some overlap between trigger point sites and acupuncture point sites, trigger point therapy is not focused on improving the flow of chi. Furthermore, while acupuncture is used to treat a broad range of health problems, trigger point therapy is primarily used for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.


Benefits of Trigger Point Therapy


Here's a look at the science behind the potential health benefits of trigger point therapy:


1) Trigger Point Therapy and Back Pain
When used in conjunction with other therapies, dry needling may be beneficial for people with chronic low back pain. That's the finding of a 2005 research review published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews. However, since most of the reviewed trials were of poor quality, the review's authors note that more research is needed on the effectiveness of dry needling in treatment of low back pain.


2) Trigger Point Therapy and Headache
Preliminary research indicates that trigger point therapy may help manage tension headaches, according to a 2012 report from Expert Review of Neurotherapeutics. However, there is currently a lack of clinical trials testing the use of trigger point therapy in treatment of tension headaches.


3) Trigger Point Therapy and Heel Pain
Trigger point therapy may help relieve plantar heel pain, suggests a small study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy in 2011. For the study, 60 people with plantar heel plan were split into two groups: One group regularly performed stretching exercises, while the other group underwent trigger point therapy (in addition to following the same stretching routine as the first group). After a month, the group who received trigger point therapy showed a greater improvement in physical function and a greater decrease in pain.


4) Trigger Point Therapy and Parkinson's Disease
Trigger point therapy shows promise in the treatment of certain symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease, according to a pilot study published in Movement Disorders in 2006.


For the study, 36 people with Parkinson's disease either received trigger point therapy or underwent a music-based relaxation therapy twice a week for four weeks. By the study's end, members of the trigger point therapy group showed greater improvement in motor function. While both groups showed modest improvement in quality of life, only members of the music relaxation group had improvements in mood and anxiety.


How to Use Trigger Point Therapy
If you're interested in undergoing trigger point therapy, consult your physician for help in finding a qualified practitioner.
