Coffee A must read for everyone who drinks it……………

You’re not going to like this one bit: you’ve been lied about the health benefits of coffee!

1. Caffeine is an alkaloid that the coffee plant uses to kill bugs, which eat its’ seeds.

The coffee plant also uses caffeine in the coffee pods to kill surrounding plants, so the coffee plant can attain more sunlight and grow larger. Caffeine is a pesticide, which causes genetic termination in living cells that come into contact with it.

2. MRI images taken before and after 1 cup of coffee showed a decrease in blood flow to the brain by 45%. When the blood flow reduction was measured exactly, it was actually 52% less blood flow to the brain, after just one small cup of coffee. http://abcn.ws/2ipmLj7

3. Brain imaging studies of chronic coffee drinkers showed they presented the same degradation of their brains as chronic alcoholics, cigarette smokers, Parkinson’s patients and marijuana users. http://dailym.ai/1qjSqi0

 

4. Coffee can cause an urge to move ones’ bowels because this is one way the body tries to eliminate poison from the system. The sudden urge to “poo” after drinking coffee is one of the body’s defense mechanisms to poison.

5. Coffee increases energy via the human fight or flight metabolic response, because the body is afraid of the caffeine based poison. Coffee doesn’t give energy, it removes it from the body.

The energy a person feels when they drink coffee is the body going into overdrive because caffeine is a poison and all poisons activate an energy release in the body. (fight or flight)

Coffee removes energy from the system, leaving the person progressively more and more exhausted each day that passes, therefore setting up the world’s most dangerous energy stimulation addiction… coffee dependence for energy.

6. When the fight or flight response is triggered in the body, the lower IQ centers of the brain are activated as well as hormonal systems in control of aggression, violence, irrational and illogical decision making, jealousy, rage, anger, fear and paranoia.

Coffee generates lower end mental functioning with a side of every negative emotional response the body can generate.

7. When measured, 1 coffee activated the fight and flight response for 3 consecutive weeks, even though no other caffeine was consumed after that 1 cup of coffee. One cup of coffee poisons the body for 3 consecutive weeks, on a decreasing scale.

8. When coffee (caffeine) is consumed, the limbic part of the brain is hyper activated and the higher learning centers of the mind inhibited. The limbic part of the brain is only concerned with sex, reproduction, protection of territory, food acquisition and personal safety.

The limbic portion of the brain is the most primitive and least developed portion of the mind complex. When you want to out smart or dominate another person, it’s best that their limbic system is activated, because it brings them to a mental state equal to that of a child.

9. The birth control pill inhibits clearing of ingested caffeine. This effect is increased dramatically by alcohol or pain killer use, therefore causing many cases of caffeine poisoning, which get treated as other things once the person reaches the hospital.

10. Coffee is proven to cause an enlarged prostate, high anxiety, insomnia, depression, birth defects, pain syndromes, unnatural breathing patterns, brain damage, hyperactivity, learning disorders (from the brain damage) behavior disorders, fatigue, certain types of cancer, Crohns, IBS, colitis, carpel tunnel, ulcers, low iron, heart disease, headaches, PMS, increased incidence of muscle and tendon injury, joint pain, heart attack, stroke,TIA’s (mini strokes)… and that’s a short list.

11. Coffee causes fat gain and cellulite because by triggering the body’s flight or fight system (which any poison or threat does). This eventually changes the body’s primary fuel source requirement to one of fat.

When the body is threatened, it prefers fat as its’ primary fuel source, over sugar or protein.

Constant activation of the body’s fight or flight system (via the daily ingestion of caffeine poison) aids in a metabolic shift to fat storage and fat conservation, because again the body prefers fat as a fuel source when fighting any toxic intruder… because fat contains 9 calories per gram for the fight, as opposed to 4 calories per gram housed by sugar and protein.

Welcome to the land of coffee (caffeine) induced fat gain, weight gain and cellulite. Coffee also destroys muscle, as the body purposely flushes muscle, when it’s poisoned, to facilitate additional fat storage.img_8912-2

12. Coffee (caffeine) blocks iron absorption, causing the vast majority of anemia today.

 

13. An investigation conducted by the author of the most extensive book on coffee ever written, reviewed almost every scientific research piece regarding coffee and his conclusion was that there’s absolutely no scientific evidence what so ever that coffee provides any health benefits to the human body, on any level, in anyway.

He openly declares that any positive promotion of coffee consumption is a blatant lie, doing grave harm to our entire society. The publication of any positive effects of coffee are false and all can be traced back to a very powerful,  “coffee lobby”, which has both commercial and ruling family origins.

The 10 most popular brain damaging weapons used against the slave class (in order of use) are:

1) vaccines
2) coffee and caffeine products
3) alcohol
4) medical drugs
5) sugar
6) fluoride
7) cigarettes
8) processed junk foods and genetically modified foods
9) EMF radiation from wireless devices and
10) chemtrails.

Homeopathy for you and your pets

The drugs used today, in Western Medicine are far more poisonous than in Hahnemann’s time ,like dropping a nuclear weapon on an ant hill!

Dr. Hahnemann felt such practices were barbaric, and he stopped practicing medicine. While making a living translating books, he came across William Cullen’s write-up on the action of Cinchona officinalis, the herb used to make quinine for the treatment of malaria. Dr. Hahnemann disagreed with Cullen’s assertion that it was the astringency of the herb that had the effect, and, to prove his point, took a small amount of the bark himself. He developed symptoms of malaria lasting a few hours. Dr. Hahnemann repeated the experiment several times, each time developing symptoms that went away by the next day.

From this research, Dr. Hahnemann developed the Law of Similars, derived from an ancient concept used by Galen, Hippocrates, and Paracelsus. When a healthy individual is made ill in a particular way by being exposed to a substance, that individual may also be cured by being treated with the same substance. Practitioners using Dr. Hahnemann’s homeopathic system are called classical homeopaths.

Many people mistakenly believe that the words holistic and homeopathic are inter-changeable. This is not true. Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of healing that uses remedies based on the Law of Similars, which is the reverse of the allopathic, or conventional, medical system. Allopathic drugs act in such a way that they suppress symptoms, but in themselves, they don’t necessarily cure disease. However, when used appropriately, homeopathy works with the body, not against it, promoting actual curing and not just suppressing symptoms. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the immune system in a very general way, which can and often does enable it to complete the job it was already trying to do on its own, however the immune system is really downstream of the life force of the patient, and there is no special action on that part of the body.

There are those in homeopathy that will declare that we don’t have all the hows and whys of how homeopathy works, but this would be true only if one does not accept anything that Hahnemann said about it. He spelled out in great detail how homeopathy acts. When people say they don’t know how it acts (even homeopaths) that means they are ignoring Hahnemann’s actual explanation. For the purpose of this writing, suffice it to say homeopathy is working on an energetic level, a concept nearly impossible for western trained health practitioners, whose belief systems follow the Newtonian principle of only ‘matter matters’ to understand this complex study. Quantum physicians and energy workers recognize that we are living in a quantum paradigm, where everything matters!

When in crisis, the human body, as well as that of the canine or feline, speaks to us through its symptoms. Symptoms, produced by the body’s attempt to heal, are windows to the internal process that should not be closed. All the symptoms, taken together, are referred to as the symptomatic picture.

LAW OF OPPOSITES, LAW OF SIMILARS

Allopathic, or conventional, medicine usually applies the Law of Opposites to the treatment of disease. The medication prescribed by the doctor or veterinarian acts against the patient’s symptoms, as described by such names as antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. Allopathic drugs typically suppress symptoms but do not necessarily cure disease.

The Law of Similars means that the remedy that causes certain symptoms in a healthy person will cure the same symptoms in a sick person. For example, a bee sting (from the honeybee, apis mellifica) causes an area of swelling and redness in normal individuals. The swelling may be accompanied by itching and burning, which feel better from the application of cold, and the person isn’t thirsty. In homeopathic dilutions, the remedy apis mellifica cures itchy, burning, red swellings that come on suddenly and
are relieved by cold compresses, especially when the individual is less thirsty than usual.
The red swelling doesn’t have to have been caused by a bee sting in order for apis mellifica to be an effective remedy; it just needs to fit the same symptom picture. It may have been caused by something completely unrelated, such as sunburn, allergy, vaccinations, or drugs.

MINIMUM DOSE

Another main principle of homeopathy is the Minimum Dose. Homeopathic remedies are prepared by dilution and succussion, which is a particular way of mixing. They are so diluted that individual molecules of the original substance are extremely difficult to detect in samples. This allows remedies to be made from highly toxic substances, such as arsenic, snake venom, or the saliva of a rabid dog.

So, how does a remedy work if there virtually isn’t anything there? When the mother remedy is made, the substance is mixed with water and succussed. This causes the water to receive an energetic imprint. Some might call it a ghost, a spirit, or even a memory. Science hasn’t yet discovered or explained how homeopathy works.
The concept of minimum dose means that the more diluted the remedy is (in other words the less substance it actually contains), the more powerful it becomes, and the higher “potency” it is.

OUTCOMES OF HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT

The principles of homeopathy state that there are three possible outcomes of any treatment: suppression, palliation, and cure.

SUPPRESSION rids the body of specific symptoms, but it drives the disease into other channels by denying the body’s expression of the original disease. For example, a skin tumor develops that is itchy and
eventually opens and drains. The allopathic vet may decide to remove the tumor and may not consider that this was the body’s choice of a location to push toxins out. After surgery, the wound heals, and the skin looks great. The most troubling symptom is gone. Over time, however, the cat, dog or other life form, may experience a change in temperament (grouchier or more aggressive), or he may develop a more serious condition, such as thyroid disease or liver cancer. Since removing the original symptom, the patient has gotten very sick at a deeper level. It’s like plugging the outlet of a volcano. It gets hotter and hotter inside until it explodes at a deeper, more dangerous level and causes much more destruction than it might have otherwise.bottlesandshelves

PALLIATION means to alleviate symptoms through medicine, such as treating pain through aspirin. With palliation, the medicine needs to be repeated frequently. Palliation makes symptoms go away almost immediately (even if they’ve been present or recurring for years). A dog or cat may, for instance, temporarily stop crying when urinating, but the symptoms will soon return — in hours, days, or even far longer periods. Repeated dosing of a remedy, herb, or drug during palliation is a perpetual cycle to keep the symptoms away. The dog or cat is not getting healthier and, in fact, is slowly getting sicker overall.

CURE, the goal of homeopathy, means that the body eliminates the whole disease, not just symptoms, and rises to a state of optimum health. Health is defined as not just the absence of symptoms, but a feeling of well being and vitality. A cure in classical homeopathy is more than just making the symptoms go away, which can happen with many kinds of treatments. Rather, it’s when the symptoms go away and stay away permanently. The dog or cat feels, and is, healthy in every respect. They may still get minor ailments, but recovers quickly from them with very little or no treatment. By treating only symptoms and not the whole individual, allopathic, or conventional, medicine tends to be limited to the first two outcomes: suppression and palliation.

HOW HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES ARE PREPARED

Today homeopathic remedies are still prepared according to guidelines given by Samuel Hahnemann, M.D., in The Organon of the Healing Art (1810). If possible, an alcohol tincture is made (some substances are not soluble in alcohol and are prepared differently). Dilution and succussion (shaking) of the tincture produce a potentized homeopathic remedy.
The level of dilution of a remedy is denoted with Roman numerals.
One drop of the mother tincture diluted with nine drops of alcohol (or other solvent) creates a potency of 1X (as in X, the Roman numeral for ten).
Similarly, 1 drop of the mother tincture diluted with 99 drops of alcohol creates a potency of 1C (as in C, the Roman numeral for 100). Higher potencies exist as well, such as M and LM. By the time a potency of 12C is reached, the dilution is beyond Avogadro’s number (6.023 x 1023, or 602,300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000), which in physical chemistry means that virtually nothing poisonous or toxic is left, no matter what the remedy has been made from.rabbit

NOTE: When we consider the action of dilution and succussion, it is always a tough one to explain. It bodes well for us to emphasize the dilution part because Hahnemann tells us that it is partly the dilution but primarily the succussion (shaking, agitation) that releases the energy responsible for the physical expression of the molecules. That is, the quantum energy behind form to put it in today’s vernacular. Again the Western trained scientists tend to reject homeopathy when they hear about our “less is more” principle of dilution.

IS A CURE ALWAYS POSSIBLE?

Through homeopathy, which most conventional physicians or veterinarians are not trained in, a real cure to most chronic diseases can be achieved in many cases where allopathic medicine offers only a quick (and often temporary) fix — if it has anything to offer at all. Homeopathy works particularly well for feline health problems, because cats are subtle creatures and highly sensitive to energy. However, all animals respond well (yes, even people) and there are many practitioners that specialize in horses and dogs, also. Homeopathic practitioners all over the world work with all aspects of human health care, homeopathically.

Homeopathic remedies are quite easy to administer and they encourage the body to help it heal itself.

If you or your dog or cat has undergone long-term allopathic drug therapy, homeopathy may not work immediately. With persistence it may help restore the dogs or cat’s health in cases in which conventional veterinarians might even recommend euthanasia. In the process of attempting a cure, very ill animals may at least feel better even if they can’t be cured.

HOW A DISEASE RUNS ITS COURSE

In homeopathy, a cure is obtained by giving the substance whose experimental symptoms in healthy individuals are most similar to the patient’s own symptoms. Since this therapy is based on an individual’s total symptomatic picture, you must learn the characteristics of each remedy, observe carefully all the symptoms your dog or cat is now exhibiting and has exhibited in the past, and understand his or her general characteristics.
Diseases tend to follow a predictable pattern. Here are the stages of disease:

ENERGETIC IMBALANCE: Your cat seems to be getting sick; there aren’t any symptoms, but you just know something’s wrong.

FUNCTIONAL CHANGES: For example, your cat is going frequently to the litter box, but there’s no straining and the urinalysis is normal. If the disturbance is treated right away, even severe symptoms may resolve quickly or be avoided. At this point, a conventional veterinarian may not be able to diagnose the problem. Dogs may exhibit a similar behavior by asking to go out frequently but again no straining and urin test is normal.

INFLAMMATION: If the disturbance remains untreated, inflammation shows that the body is trying its hardest to rebalance itself. At this stage the dog or cat is sick, often with fever, redness, and swellings.

PATHOLOGY: Finally, the body tries to ward off the problem by moving into pathology, such as bladder stones; thick, hairless skin; or fluid accumulation in abdomen or chest. Once this stage has been reached, a cure takes longer to achieve. The dog or cat must work his or her way back through the previous stages of the disease: inflammation, functional changes, and energetic imbalance. This is why it often seems as though the dog or cat is worsening before improving. When a chronically ill dog or cat is given an appropriate remedy, there will often be an immediate mental and emotional response of contentment, even though the final “physical” cure may take much longer.

WORKING WITH A HOMEOPATHIC PRACTITIONER

Never attempt to use homeopathy on your own to treat your cat or dog. Always work with a homeopathic veterinarian because by far, the great majority of human homeopathic prescribers are not equipped to treat animals. There may be exceptions but they are such.
I especially like to refer those who are searching for a Homeopathic Veterinary Specialist to see the web site of a world authoritity on the subject, Richard Pitcairn, DVM where there is a listing of many veterinarians that have trained with him personally in homeopathy. Also there is a page of instructions that tells people how to select a homeopathic veterinarian, and how to know they are qualified. (www.drpitcairn.com/referrals/anhc-referrals/)

Although you may read this article and a few books on the subject and feel confident moving forward please keep in mind that selecting the right remedy in the right potency at the right time is not a simple process, and assessing the progress of the case takes training and experience.

Beginning homeopathic treatment may also seem expensive, but the costs are nearly all up front. Over time, you’ll spend less money than you would have with conventional care and its repeated tests and treatments.

Your first appointment with a veterinary homeopath is likely to take an hour or more. He’ll or she will ask a lot of questions; some of which might seem irrelevant at first. In prescribing homeopathic remedies, the smallest details help the homeopath understand the dog or cat’s personality, which will help your practitioner distinguish among remedies. It is helpful for guardians to
keep a journal of symptoms as homeopathic treatment progresses. Here are some questions to consider.

1. How does your dog or cat react to situations, people, other animals, noise, and other stimuli?

2. Does your dog or cat seek warmth under your covers or lie on the carpet or cool, hard surfaces?

3. How much water does your dog or cat drink? 4. Does your cat like dry, soft, or soupy foods? 5. How does your dog or cat interact with other dogs or cats in the house? 6. Is your cat the boss or the low cat on the totem pole?

A homeopath makes a list of all past and present symptoms, as well as of the individual’s unique characteristics. The homeopath asks about every body system and what makes each symptom better or worse. He looks for changes in symptom pictures and tries to discover a cause for the changes (for example, symptoms started after the dog or cat’s human companions divorced). Your practitioner will also look for characteristic symptoms (those symptoms that aren’t normally associated with the disease). For example, everyone with the flu feels tired and achy, but characteristic symptoms might be feeling better from being consoled, worse from exposure to an open window, or better from having only cold drinks.

In many cases, this is the point where you and your animal companion will go home.

Later, the homeopath looks up the most important and unique characteristics (and this takes experienced judgment) in a repertory containing tens of thousands of symptoms along with the remedies known to help each symptom. By cross-referencing the most important symptoms and traits, the homeopath comes up with the two to five best potential remedies.

Next, the homeopath compares his choices in a materia medica, which is a book containing in-depth descriptions of each remedy. He or she makes a selection and provides the remedy to you.

WAITING FOR A TRUE CURE

Be patient! A true cure takes time. Once a remedy is given, you must be vigilant about observing changes in your dog or cat’s symptoms, attitude, and any other signs or patterns the homeopath may ask you to watch. Keeping a journal is extremely helpful, noting observations and remedies along with the date, time of day, weather conditions, and any unusual stressors the dog or cat has been exposed to. The homeopath will ask you to report back as things happen or at specified time periods; be sure to stick to the schedule.

The most common instruction you will hear from a classical homeopath is “Wait.” Each remedy must be allowed to complete its work; for high potency remedies, a month or more is the minimum. Day-to-day changes should be noted in your journal, but try to see the bigger healing trends that are occurring. You will check in with the homeopath at intervals so that he or she can assess the case and make sure that the remedy is acting to cure, not to palliate or suppress.

When a homeopathic remedy is given, the energy field of the body immediately starts to react. In the first couple of days, the dog or cat may seem to feel better, even if symptoms haven’t changed. Three to five days after the remedy has been given, a response will usually be noticeable. This may look like current symptoms getting worse, older symptoms returning, or new symptoms arising — yet the dog or cat clearly has better energy, a better appetite, or just looks more like his old self.

As you research homeopathy you may come across the term “healing crisis” and this could cause one to believe that this is something that happens quite frequently during homeopathic treatment but keep in mind that this really does not occur if the homeopath is skilled. Healing crisis usually equates, in most cases, to animals getting worse with inappropriate homeopathic treatment. There is no need to expect this to happen.

However, keep in mind that a slight aggravation or change can be a very good sign; the body is being jolted into starting to heal itself. (Of course, if the symptoms get much worse and the dog or cat is clearly feeling sicker, call your homeopath immediately for instructions; the remedy is not acting curatively and may need to be changed).

When the aggravation or healing crisis occurs, it is critical to wait and not use another homeopathic remedy. You can make your cat more comfortable with other gentle treatments, such as massage, herbs, flower remedies, EFT Tapping, and Reiki.

Most animal companions have been instructed by their holistic veterinarian, or practitioner, who practices homeopathy in the “how to’s” of the preparation of a home made, organic, species specific raw diet, with proper supplementation, including omega -3’s which reduces inflammation that quite naturally occurs during the disease process itself and it’s healing crisis. Proper nutrition and stress reduction, will always assist the homeopathic remedy to help the body heal itself. As a practitioner, I wouldn’t consider practicing homeopathy without also using nutritional and nutraceutical support, as well.

Over time, you will most likely see the symptoms slowly start to lessen. Again, the length of time needed for a cure is proportional to the length and depth of an illness and the amount of prior inappropriate treatment received, no matter if they were allopathic, homeopathic, herbal, or other. Cures take time and patience, and they often require several remedies over months or years. Patience is the key.

NOTE: If your dog or cat is experiencing serious symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, you may need to get your animal companion to emergency allopathic care, such as at a veterinary emergency facility. As soon as possible, let your homeopathic practitioner know what treatment your dog or cat received . For example, if your dog or cat develops a life- threatening asthma attack on Saturday, he or she might need steroids as this is life threatening condition where emergency medicine may be a life saving solution. But if you panic during a healing crisis with a dog or cat already under homeopathic care and use allopathic treatment or give a homeopathic remedy on your own, you can create a difficult knot for your homeopath to untangle. It’s challenging to decipher what requires
emergency treatment and the use of western medicine and what is an acceptable level of crisis reaction. You should discuss this with your homeopath, in order to be prepared as to what you might expect, but when the moment arrives, only you can make that decision. A healing crisis and a true emergency may look quite a bit alike and it will always be better to err on the side of caution.

It pays to be prepared, however. And homeopathy can be used to great advantage in first-aid situations for acute injuries or illness. You may want to keep a homeopathic kit on hand for emergencies in 30C potencies. Study it carefully and have a basic understanding on how to use emergency homeopathic. Jean Hofve, DVM and I have included the basic emergency remedies and instructions in there use in our book, The Complete Guide to Holistic Cat Care, which will of course be instructional and benefit dog companions, as well.

Talk with your homeopathic practitioner in advance of an emergency for additional information and remedies in your individual case to know how and when to use the recommended remedies properly.

Homeopathy is complex, and you can do serious harm with inappropriate remedies. Don’t take chances with your precious animal companions life. It’s best to work with a holistic veterinarian who is trained in small animal homeopathy, either in person or by phone, to select the right remedy, potency, and schedule of administration.
If you’re seeking a homeopathic practitioner in addition to your conventional vet, be aware that many conventional veterinarians will welcome your search for another way to heal your dog or cat. Other veterinarians may be threatened by new approaches, or feel they’re not appropriate. Just be honest and, if you can, enroll them as your partner in healing but if you are not comfortable with the response you get, find another veterinarian who is open to homeopathy and alternative adjunct therapies.

DOSAGES

Homeopathic remedies are available in tablets and granules (pellets). Because the size of the animal isn’t important, the dosage is the same for dogs and cats as it is for humans. The potency selected and how frequently it’s given are more important than the amount given. If your dog or cat
doesn’t swallow a complete dose (for example exactly three pellets), he or she will still get the benefit. If your dog or cat refuses to be pilled it is also acceptable to dissolve the remedy in water and then give it with a spoon or dosing syringe. Your homeopath will help you determine a proper dosage schedule.

It’s best to give homeopathic remedies on an empty stomach. However, if necessary, the remedy may be given in a small amount (approximately 1 teaspoon) of organic raw milk or raw cream or in organic, raw carnivore, species specific food.

No Expiration Date is really necessary for homeopathic remedies even though one is provided on the package.

Homeopathic remedies don’t seem to lose their effectiveness unless they are stored improperly. Remedies one hundred years old have been used successfully! Just be sure to store your remedies away from sunlight, heat, strong odors, microwaves, motors, electrical equipment, and disinfecting agents.

Homeopathy is an exciting journey of discovery to embark upon for your own health care, as well as your companion animals.

Tautopathy (tauto-same)

Tautopathy – An Introduction

Author- Dr.Manish Bhatia | Hpathy
An introduction to Tautopathy and Tautopathic Medicines.

Tautopathy (Tauto-same) is the method of curing or removing the bad effects of conventional drugs by means of identical potentised drugs. For. e.g., If you are suffering from the bad effects or side-effects of the antibiotic Penicillin, you can use potentised Penicillin to remove its side effects. This idea has been confirmed not only clinically by large number of homeopaths but has also been studied scientifically. There have been studies in which potentised lead and potentised arsenic have been used to promote excretion of the same substances in cases of poisoning. The results have shown that such use of potentised substances can help remove the symptoms caused by the toxicity, by enhancing the elimination of the toxin from the tissues.blogphoto17
Tautopathy is not based on ‘similars’. It is not homeopathy but it is pretty close to it. It is more in the realm of Isopathy. Tautopathic drugs have two advantages –
1. They can be proved like homeopathic medicines and can be assimilated in homeopathic materia medica. This provides a chance to use these medicines on the principles of homeopathy too.
2. They can be given to antidote or remove the bad effects of conventional drugs.
Long term use of allopathic or conventional drugs has often been found to work as an obstruction in providing a cure using the most similar homeopathic medicines. The administration of tautopathic medicines can help remove such obstructions and can facilitate a cure. A tautopathic medicines is not just administered on the basis of history of known drug intake, but there should be definite guiding symptoms for the selection of a medicine.
As conventional medicine has progressed the chemicals and drugs used by it have become more stronger. The more stronger a drug, the more stronger are its side effects. The long term use in chronic diseases compounds this problem. Patients with chronic disease often come to homeopaths after taking conventional medicine for many years. By the time they arrive at our office, it is often difficult to discern which symptoms of the patient are due to the disease and which are due to the drugs. There is often a layer of drug-symptoms that needs to be removed before the ‘similimum’ can work effectively. The use of tautopathic medicines can help clear the case in many such cases. Tautopathy is not an isolated system of medicine, but it is an enhanced tool for the homeopaths to use in difficult cases coming to us from the allopathic stable.
Two such medicines that have showed positive results in my practice are, Cortisonum and Roaccutane. I have used cortisonum in many difficult cases of asthma and allergic dermatitis with a history of long-term steroid inhalation or application. Such application has often moved a stuck case in the right direction. Potentised Roaccutane has helped in dealing with the cheilitis and hair-fall which results as a side-effect of this drug. Some of the patients who were given Cortisonum have reported some form of elimination reaction in which their sweat or urine becomes more offensive that usual for a few days.
There is hardly any modern ‘wonder-drug’ that does not have any serious side-effects. One has to understand that the ‘medicines’ are not part of body’s physiological requirement. The antibiotics, antipyretics, pain-killers, steroids – are all as foreign to the human body – as foreign as any other disease causing agent. The body reacts to the medicines in very much the same fashion as it reacts to the bacteria and viruses. So there is no wonder that the modern wonder-drugs, produce there own set of symptoms (drug-disease) when used for long time. Tautopathic medicines can play a vital role in countering such drug-disease or toxic symptoms produced by conventional drugs.
Preparation of Tautopathic Medicines
Tautopathic Medicines are made by potentising the conventional drugs. The process of potentization is similar to that used for homeopathic medicines, i.e., trituration and succussion. Both the decimal and centesimal scales are used.

Hemophilia and Homeopathy

Hemophilia Treatment in Homeopathy

 

What is Hemophilia?
Hemophilia is a genetic bleeding disorder wherein the body’s ability to control the stoppage of bleeding is impaired.
Normally after one gets injured the bleeding stops after sometime. There are some chemical factors in the blood that are responsible to halt the bleeding. These chemicals in the blood are called as clotting factor VIII and factor IX. A deficiency or absolute absence of these factors can keep one bleeding slowly for minutes together.
Hemophilia is a genetic disorder caused as a result of the deficiency of factor VIII (called hemophilia type A) or factor IX (called hemophilia B).Hemophilia is derived from the Greek word which has an interesting meaning, “Haimaphilia”, Haima means blood and philia means love.
It is most likely to occur in male children because of the association of this trait with a specific kind of genetic material, called the X chromosome. As males have two X chromosomes they are likely to inherit and show symptoms. Whereas females have only one X chromosome hence they usually just carry the genes without showing any symptoms.
Symptoms of Hemophiliablogphoto18
The hemophiliacs usually suffer from bleeding tendencies (internal or external). If they suffer from any injury, there is prolonged bleeding due to loss of clotting factor (factor which is responsible to form a scab and stop the bleeding).
Patients have a tendency to bleed into the joint space especially into the knee joints without any evident injury which can also lead to permanent disfigurement and disability (called as Hemophilia arthropathy).
Children with mild to moderate hemophilia usually are symptom free but may have tendency to suffer from bruises and injuries after the slightest falls.
Mild hemophilia may be noticeable and accidentally diagnosed after a prolonged bleeding in a dental procedure.
Hemophiliacs are prone to contract any infection like frequent cold and cough more easily compared to the normal individuals.
Hemophilia treatment in Homeopathy
There are various homeopathic remedies which prove to be useful in controlling the bleeding tendencies in hemophilia. These homeopathic medicines have an affinity for acting on the blood vessels, capillaries and helps in accelerating the healing mechanism.
The medicines like Lachesis, Crotalus Horridus, Phosphorus, Millifolium and Ipecacunha are known to be good remedies for hemophilia treatment in Homeopathy. These when potentised (a unique process of making medicines in homeopathy to arouse the hidden medicinal properties of the medicine) help in tackling bleeding in haemophilia. They are known to stimulate the factors in the blood vessels in order to facilitate the healing process and stop bleeding.
Homeopathy in the treatment of hemophilia can be given as a supportive line of treatment especially in long standing cases. Acute exacerbations can be tackled with the conventional line of treatment. Hemophilia treatment by homeopathy reduces the dependency on clotting factor concentrates which are expensive and may be not affordable for every individual. There is always a risk of contracting HIV and Hepatitis C during the transfusion of the factor concentrate. After a long term transfusion the patient becomes further immune and starts developing antibodies which moreover needs a different plan of treatment.
Homeopathy is a cost effective mode of treatment which helps in reducing frequency and intensity of knee pain when it comes to hemophilia knee arthropathy. The frequency and duration of bleeding, easy bruising can be reduced.
There is no threat of any side effects due to the long term homeopathic treatment. It is easy and safe to take homeopathic medications for a long time. These medications act at the immunity level. The immune system is boosted in order to avoid the recurrence of infections which occurs frequently in hemophiliacs. Cold and cough is a common entity found which can be taken care of with a correctly selected homeopathic remedy.
Thus in conclusion, Homeopathy has a good scope in hemophilia treatment.

Why try homeopathy?

1. Why should my family try homeopathy?
Homeopathy is used by over 500 million people worldwide for a wide range of ailments.  The system is popular because it’s natural, it works, it’s non-habit forming and it’s comprehensive with no side effects.  What’s more – it’s safe for the very youngest and oldest among us with a safety record unparalleled in the history of medicine. Homeopathy is also a great option for family use because it’s easily adaptable for self-care.

2. Are homeopathic remedies regulated and readily available?blogphoto15
Homeopathic medicines are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and prepared by licensed companies like Washington Homeopathic Products using strict guidelines of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS), and the current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) of the FDA.  Nearly all homeopathic medicines are available over the counter without a prescription.

3. How are remedies made?
Homeopathic remedies are made from substances found in nature (animal, mineral, botanical) through a process of serial dilutions and succussions (vigorous agitation).  Each remedy is manufactured according to Homœopathic Pharmacopœia of the United States formulation requirements.  They are also completely free of herbicides or pesticides.

4. Is homeopathy a form of herbal medicine?
No. The two systems are very different. Herbal medicines use a much larger dose of plant materials than one gets in a homeopathic remedy. And unlike herbal supplements, which are regulated as dietary supplements, the FDA accepts homeopathic products as medicine.

5. What can I use homeopathy to treat?
Homeopathy effectively treats common ailments including hay fever, minor arthritic pain, colds, flu-like symptoms, cold sores, sinus, indigestion, burns, accidents, shock, etc. Homeopathy is free of all counter indications and will not cause drug interactions, allowing it to be utilized in conjunction with other medicinal systems – allopathic or complementary alternative medicines.

6. How do I understand the drug potencies?
Homeopathic remedies have been found to be more effective, gentle and safe because they have been diluted and agitated vigrrously (succussed) in the manufacturing process. Unlike conventional drugs, homeopathic drug potency is indicated on the label and it shown by a number followed by X or C. X indicates a substance base is diluted at a ratio of 1:9 ( 1 part active to 9 parts inactive – USP dilution alcohol). The ratio for a C potency is 1:99 (1 part active to 99 parts inactive – USP dilution alcohol). The number preceding the X or C signifies the number of times the base substance was diluted and succussed.

7. How long has homeopathy been in clinical use?
Homeopathy is a system of medical treatment developed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann from 1794 to his death in 1843. He published The Organon, his first compilation of its principles in 1810. The first American homeopathic medical college was established in Allentown, PA in 1835. At the turn of the 20th century, 20% of all medical practitioners in the U.S. were homeopaths (approximately 15,000) and there were 22 homeopathic medical colleges. A homeopathic renaissance began in the 1980s. In 1990, 2.5 million Americans sought out some form of homeopathic care. By 1999, that number rose to more than 6 million and has been increasing rapidly ever since. Worldwide, approximately 500 million people use homeopathy for their healthcare.  Internationally, it is practiced by tens of thousands of M.D.s and N.Ds.  Retail sales also continue to increase at a growth rate unrivaled in the U.S. in a century – now estimated to be approximately $1 billion a year.

8. Do other countries use homeopathy more extensively?
Yes. Homeopathy has a global popularity that far exceeds its use in the U.S. In fact it is estimated that over 500 million people use it worldwide. In Europe, approximately 40% of all physicians use or refer patients to practitioners of homeopathy. It is integrated into the national health care systems of countries like Germany, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Greece, Israel, India, Pakistan and Mexico.

9. What does research about homeopathy show?
There are a large number of basic science, pre-clinical and clinical studies as well as a very large quantity of epidemiological evidence showing that homeopathy works.  To learn more about these studies – please visit: https://www.homeopathyworks.com/homeopathic-research/

10. Can you give an example of the epidemiological evidence for homeopathy?
During the great flu pandemic of 1918-19, ordinary medical hospitals had 26,000 admissions with a fatality rate of almost 30%. Homeopathic hospitals had 24,000 admissions with a fatality rate of 1.5%.  There are literally thousands of other contemporary and historical examples.

11. Are there noteworthy people who used or now use homeopathy?
Indeed there are! British Royal Family members have been faithful homeopathic patients since the 1830s. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles reportedly carry homeopathic remedies with them when they travel. Other noted supporters include Bill Clinton, Abraham Lincoln (and 9 other U.S. Presidents), Mahatma Gandhi, Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, John D. Rockefeller (who used homeopathy throughout his long — 98 year — life) and Cindy Crawford (who showed her WHP kit on the Oprah Show). Jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie said, “there have been two revelations in my life — the first was be-bop and the second was homeopathy.” Mother Teresa added homeopathic care to the services of her missions. Mikhail Gorbachev awarded a Soviet physician a gold medal for his work in homeopathy.


The truth about chemo

Do you remember the “Mad Hatter” from Alice and Wonderland? Did you know that the term “mad as a hatter” originated from a disease peculiar to the hat making industry in the 1800s?skull3-2
A complicated set of processes was needed to turn fur into a finished hat. With cheaper fur, an early step was to brush a solution of mercury compound on the fur to roughen the fibers. This caused the hat makers to breathe in the fumes of this highly toxic metal, leading to an accumulation of mercury in the hatter’s bodies.
This resulted in trembling (known as “hatters’ shakes”), slurred speech, loss of coordination, anxiety, personality changes, depression, and memory loss which eventually became known as “Mad Hatter Syndrome.” This term is still used today to describe mercury poisoning.
Fast forward 200 years, and let’s focus on pharmacists rather than hat makers…
Back in September 2004, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) released a dangerous-drug alert with the title Preventing Occupational Exposures to Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs in Health Care Settings. The alert warned that working with chemotherapy drugs and other common pharmaceuticals can be a serious danger to your health.
They were right because on July 10, 2010, the Seattle Times carried the story of Sue Crump, a veteran pharmacist of 20 years, who had spent much of her time dispensing chemotherapy drugs. Sue died in 2011 from pancreatic cancer and one of her dying wishes was that the truth be told about how her on-the-job exposure to toxic chemotherapy drugs caused her own cancer. The list of chemicals Crump worked with included cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, fluorouracil, and methotrexate.
Does Chemotherapy Cause Cancer?
I am not surprised by Sue’s story because one of the effects of chemotherapy is that it actually CAUSES cancer! (Yes, the very thing it is supposed to “cure” it literally causes. Insane, right?)
You may have heard it said that folks who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. Well, much like the hatters who went mad from the mercury, when it comes to chemo… pharmacists and other health care workers who dispense toxic drugs shouldn’t be surprised if one day it kills them.
Interestingly, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not regulate exposure to these toxins in the workplace − despite multiple studies documenting ongoing contamination and exposures. Studies reaching back to the 1970s have linked increased rates of certain cancers to nurses and physicians.
Every oncologist knows that chemotherapy drugs cause genetic damage. Due to inadvertent spills, chemotherapy drugs have been found on floors, counter tops, knobs, keyboards, printers, computers, and garbage cans. Most chemo is genotoxic, meaning that it interacts with genes (DNA) and causes mutations. And yes, genetic mutations are a known risk factor for developing cancer, while secondary cancers are a known side effect (actually a “direct effect”) of chemo.
Danish epidemiologists used cancer data from the 1940s through the 1980s to report a significantly increased risk of leukemia among oncology nurses and doctors. In 2009, another Danish study of over 92,000 nurses determined that they had an increased risk for brain cancer, breast cancer, and thyroid cancer.
Playing Chemo “Roulette”
Dr. Glenn Warner (who died in 2000), was one of the most highly qualified cancer specialists in the United States. He used alternative treatments on his cancer patients with great success. On the treatment of cancer in this country he said, “We have a multi-billion dollar industry that is killing people, right and left, just for financial gain.
Their idea of research is to see whether two doses of this poison is better than three doses of that poison.”
Dr. Alan C. Nixon, past president of the American Chemical Society writes, “As a chemist trained to interpret data, it is incomprehensible to me that physicians can ignore the clear evidence that chemotherapy does much, much more harm than good.”
And according to Dr. Charles Mathe, French cancer specialist, “If I contracted cancer, I would never go to a standard cancer treatment center. Only cancer victims who live far from such centers have a chance.”
Truth be told, if a person has one type of cancer and allowed themselves to be injected with chemotherapy, this person will later often develop a different type of cancer as a result. The oncologist will likely claim to have cured their initial cancer even though a second or third cancer developed which was directly caused by the chemo used to treat the original cancer.
The serious toxic effects of chemotherapy have long been ignored by virtually everyone in medicine and the federal government. Chemotherapy  drugs have always been assumed to be safe just because they’re used to treat cancer. This is an outright lie!
The truth is that chemo is toxic, carcinogenic (causes cancer), destroys erythrocytes (red blood cells), devastates the immune system, and destroys vital organs.
Obvious Signs that Chemotherapy is Highly Toxic
Think about it… a person’s hair falls out, their immune system is destroyed, they are constantly nauseous and often vomit. Frequent dizziness is also the norm as are severe headaches. Are these signs that maybe, just maybe chemotherapy  is poison and doesn’t belong in the human body? I’m not a doctor, but I think this is a very, very strange way to “heal” someone.

Chemotherapy is a derivative of the mustard gas used in World War I. As the Seattle Times reported, “A just-completed study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (10 years in the making and the largest to date) confirms that chemo continues to contaminate the work spaces where it’s used and in some cases is still being found in the urine of those who handle it…”
Yet drugs (like Tamoxifen) are routinely used to “treat” breast cancer even though the World Health Organization declared Tamoxifen to be a “known carcinogen” in 1996. The level of quackery in the cancer industry is amazing. Chemotherapy doesn’t work at anything other than causing cancer! If you have cancer and are considering chemotherapy, please ask yourself this vitally important question: If chemotherapy causes cancer, how can it also treat or cure cancer?
I absolutely love this quote from Mike Adams…
“Treating cancer with chemotherapy is like treating alcoholism with vodka. It’s like treating heart disease with cheese, or diabetes with high-fructose corn syrup. Cancer cannot be cured by the very thing that causes it. Don’t let some cancer doctor talk you into chemotherapy using his (or her) fear tactics. They’re good at that. So next time he insists that you take some chemotherapy, ask him to take some first. If your oncologist isn’t willing to take chemotherapy in front of you to prove it’s safe, why on earth would you agree to have it injected in your body?”

NEJM editor: “No longer possible to believe much of clinical research published”

Bigpharma’s ethics are easily swayed by money- please read

The Ethical Nag

NEJM posterHarvard Medical School’s Dr. Marcia Angellis the author of The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It. But more to the point, she’s also the former Editor-in-Chief at the New England Journal of Medicine, arguably one of the most respected medical journals on earth. But after reading her article in the New York Review of Books called Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption, one wonders if any medical journal on earth is worth anybody’s respect anymore.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

Cananga oil and Chanel#5 is there a connection?

Essential oils/aromatherapy the latest craze, many people using these oils have no idea what they are doing/what and how to mix because they are not certified in aromatherapy. Pyramid marketing housewifes are exploding,sadly not taking the time to become aware of the magical ,healing,history and botanical history of each oil they use. I became certified in 1996,everyone using these oils should aswell.

This particular article is about CANAGA oil (ylang-ylang) one of my favorites……………….enjoyfullsizerender-155

Two persons and one plant participated in the creation of the world famous fragrance, “Chanel # 5.”

The inventors of this renowned perfume were Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, and Ernest Bo (Beaux) who was born in 1881 in Moscow. Bo was the son of the owner of the perfumery company Rallet, which delivered perfumery to the imperial court. He later became Rallet’s director.

 

Chanel asked Bo to make “an ideal smell for a woman.” In 1921, he presented two series of samples: from the 1st to the 5th, and from the 20th to the 24th. Chanel chose the 5th, which consisted of the aromas of a rose, a jasmine and Ylang-Ylang flowers.

When questioned about giving it a name, she answered that the collection would be on sale on the 5th day of the 5th month, and consequently it was called “Chanel # 5.”

 

Ylang-Ylang (Cananga odorata) is a large evergreen tropical tree of the Annonaceae family, which grows to 100 ft. in height. It has drooping branches and yellow, long-petaled flowers whose fragrance can be smelled from a distance of 30 ft. or more. It originated in Indonesia and is widely distributed in Southeast Asia, the Philippines, and the Polynesian islands.

The Annonaceae family is comprised of about 130 tropical and subtropical plants, among which are many well-known exotic fruit trees such as the so-called “custard-apples.” These include a Sugar Apple (Annona squamosa), Soursop (Annona muricata), Cherimoya (Annona cherimola), and Rollinia deliciosa. The family also includes many other fragrant plants, such as Desmos (Desmos chinensis) and Artabotrys (Artabotrys hexapetalus).

Tatiana & Mike Ylang-Ylang grows from seeds and begins to bloom in three to four years. The flower changes color from pale green to lemon yellow. Old flowers have a dark yellow color with brown spots and are about 2″ long with narrow petals gracefully hanging down, reminding one of an elegant accessory for a luxurious designer evening dress.
   

In addition to its wonderful fragrance, the plant blooms practically year round. Its branches are entirely covered with clusters of flowers and dark green oval fruits. Ripe fruits have a black color. Unlike some Annonaceae, Ylang-Ylang fruits are not used in foods; however they are quite edible and have the tart but pleasant aroma of a conifer or juniper.

Mourning Over a Beloved One

Tatiana & Mike In Tagalog, one of the most widespread languages of the Philippines and the second most-spoken Asian language in the USA after Chinese, “Ylang Ylang” (to be exact, “alang-alang”) means “a flower of all flowers.”

The Philippine legend tells about a married couple who had everything in their life except children. In a dream, the gods came to them and promised to grant them a daughter, provided that the girl should never touch a man once she matures. The girl was named Ilang (“Flower”). She grew to be a true beauty, and there was no lack of men asking to marry her, but her parents guarded her in order not to break their agreement with the gods. One day when the parents were not at home, Ilang went to her garden to collect a bouquet of flowers. Unexpectedly, there appeared a young man who for a long time had been in love with her.

He held her by her hand and said, “I love you, be my wife.” Instantly the girl disappeared, turning into a small tree with very fragrant flowers. “Ilang! Ilang!” cried the young man. Since that day, it is said that the young man continues to wander the magic garden, calling out her name throughout eternity.

Mystery of Fragrance

The flowers of the Ylang Ylang are pollinated by night moths; therefore the most intensive smell is released from dusk until dawn. The flowers to be used by the distillation process are picked at sunrise when their aroma is the most intense.

Essential oil is produced using a method of distillation, unlike some other flowers such as the jasmine. The essential oil of jasmine is extracted by its absorbsion into a layer of fat on which the flowers are laid. Only then does distillation become a part of the process. The fat is distilled to obtain the aroma. Those who have read the novel “Perfume” by Patrick Suskind are quite familiar with the theory of aroma extraction…

The distillation process takes 14 hours and begins in the early morning with the picking of yellow flowers. A copper, hermetically-sealed jar containing approximately 200 pounds of flowers is filled with 15 gallons of water. The result of distillation is about 1-2 liters (or 1-2 quarts) of oil with the most intense aroma that is called “Ylang Ylang Extra.”

Then the process of distillations is repeated and lower-grade oil is produced. It is called simply “Ylang Ylang oil.” The various gradations of concentrated aroma are numbered 1, 2 and 3. Lastly, the distillation produces oil called “Cananga Oil” which is used in fragrant soap manufacturing.

Sometimes instead of distillation, the flowers are used directly for preparation of fragrant soaps, candles, and other products. We put a flower on our car’s dashboard. When it was heated by the sun, it let out a delightful aroma that lasted several days and was far better than any air-freshener.

Amazing Economics

From ancient times, girls in Philippines decorated themselves with Ylang Ylang flowers, from which, together with flowers of Sampaguita (Jasmin Sambac or “Maid of Orleans”) they made garlands resembling Hawaiian leis. These sold for 5 pesos (currently, $1 US = 55 pesos). A kilogram (2.2 pounds) of Ylang Ylang flowers costs about 20-50 pesos (less that $1 US). From a kilogram, it is possible to produce about 10-20 milliliters (less than an ounce) of the best quality oil. A liter (about 1 quart) of oil in the Philippines costs from 7,500 up to 10,000 pesos ($150-$200), depending on the quality.

On the Internet, a mere 10 milliliters of oil of Ylang Ylang costs about $10-20 depending on the grade. The second grade Ylang Ylang oil is not inferior, but more of it is required to create desired fragrance intensity. Note that when one buys Ylang-Ylang oil on the internet, he or she has to pay 10 to 20 times as much as it costs in the Philippines. That’s enough profit to think about growing one’s own groves of Ylang-Ylang. However, if you really decide to do this, then you should go either to the Philippines or to the Comoro Islands.

Tatiana & Mike
Tatiana & Mike Before the First World War, the Philippines was the center for producing oils. The German pharmacist F. Shtek, the owner of the first Manila drugstore, “Bodice Boer,” first received high-quality Ylang-Ylang oil in the second half of 19th century. The drugstore was located on the Escolta in Manila, which was one of its most fashionable streets, similar to 5th Avenue in New York. This is why the fragrant oil won popularity in high society all over Philippines, and then in Europe and America. Before the first World War, the Philippines had a monopoly in the manufacture of this oil, but after the war, Germany had other priorities, and France transferred cultivation of the trees to the Comoro Islands.

Most likely, “Coco” Chanel received the oil from the Comoro Islands because, by 1920, cultivation of Ylang-Ylang in the Philippines had sharply declined. At the best of times, the Comoro Islands produced 90% of the world’s Ylang-Ylang oil from 1.2 million trees. During the 1960’s to 1970’s, this production declined due to the introduction of synthetic fragrances on the world market.

With the increasing popularity of aromatherapy, there has been a revival of commercial products using Ylang-Ylang from the Philippines. In the provinces of Pampanga and Tarlac there are thousands of hectares (1 hectare = 2.47acres) growing 20,000-30,000 trees. It’s certainly not 1.2 million, but just imagine the aroma! It must difficult to sell perfume where everything smells like Chanel # 5!

Essence of Passion

In the Philippines, Ylang Ylang flowers were considered good for driving away malicious spirits. In Indonesia, it was prized as an aphrodisiac and the flowers were scattered on the beds of the newly married. Ylang Ylang oil was recommended for women in harems to heighten sexual appeal. In China, the clothes of people who could afford it were sprayed with Ylang Ylang oil before storing them in chests. (The smell of a winter coat, pulled out from a chest was certainly more pleasant than the smell of the naphthalene that is used now).

Besides perfumery, Ylang Ylang flowers also had medicinal applications. In the Philippines, the flowers were crushed and applied to the sites of insect stings and snake bites. The oil was also used for skin and hair because it was thought to improve hair growth. In England, in second half of the19th century, Ylang Ylang was one of the components of oil used for “growing hair.” Whether it really helped hair growth, we don’t know, but, in any case, a bald head must have smelled very pleasant.

Tatiana & Mike
Tatiana & Mike It is now fashionable in aromatherapy to use Ylang Ylang oil, which is usually the third gradation, to alleviate stress, anxiety, and high blood pressure. Since it is considered a calming aroma, you can probably keep your neighbor’s aggressive dog at bay by planting Ylang Ylang in your yard.

In addition to Chanel #5, Ylang Ylang is used in other perfumes such as “Aqua De Gio” by Giorgio Armani, “Poison” by Christian Dior, and “Elise Fields” (“Champs Elysee”) by Guerlain.

Ylang Ylang Oil Aromatherapy

As a bath oil: Add 1-2 drops to a bath for a soothing effect. Other variations: Add 3 drops of lavender, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang, and 2 drops of juice from a grapefruit.

For Massage: Add 1-2 drops of Ylang Ylang to odorless massage oil. A more refined recipe recommends also adding 5 drops of sandal oil, 4 drops of pink oil and a droplet of patchouli. This mixture will guarantee a great massage.

An aromatic mix: add 8 drops of Ylang Ylang, 8 drops of lemon juice, and 8 drops of basil. If you add a few drops of this mixture to a therapeutic spray, it will work well to relieve weariness and stress, etc.

A Cologne: Obtain 5 ml (about 1/5 oz.) of spirits (It is desirable to do your own clearing rather than using denatured alcohol). Mix the spirits with distilled water to a 50% concentration. (Probably one could use vodka if no other spirits are available). Add 12 drops patchouli, 3 drops of geranium sap, 2 drops of Ylang Ylang, and a little bit of cinnamon (leaves or bark will do). This mixture will produce very fine cologne.

A potpourri: Mix in a glass vessel (that has a hermetically-sealed cover) a little oil of Ylang Ylang (or flowers), a little dry tangerine/orange/lemon peel, some leaves or bark from a cinnamon tree, a bay leaf, and a few leaves from a carnation plant. Keep the vessel closed for 3-4 weeks, periodically shaking it. The resulting tincture can then be used to scent linens, bed sheets, clothes, etc.
