Modern Science Confirms Yoga’s Many Health Benefits

23rd June 2016

Modern science now confirms why humans have been practicing yoga since the beginning of recorded history: it is good both for the body and mind.

There is evidence in the archeological record that yoga has been practiced by humans for at least 5,000 years. Whereas this would constitute sufficient evidence for most folks to consider it a practice with real health benefits, as its millions of practitioners widely claim, skeptics say otherwise. They require any activity deemed to be of therapeutic value run the gauntlet of randomized, controlled clinical trials before it is fully accepted within the conventional medical system.

This tendency towards scientism in medicine, or what some call medical monotheism, runs diametrically opposed to the standards of lived-experience – so called “subjectivity” – or anecdotal experience (learning from the experience of others) which is what the majority of the world uses to determine if something has value, or is worth doing or not.

Could Talking to Your Body Be the Answer to Your Health Complaints?

21st May 2016

Have no doubt, the mind can be a powerful healing tool. And science is beginning to acknowledge what shamans, healers, intuitives and spiritual masters have known for a millennia. Researchers like Bruce Lipton, Ph.D. have shown that our thoughts, whether conscious or not, have a profound impact on our bodies — right down to the cellular level and our very DNA. Time and again, it has been demonstrated that when we harbor ill will toward ourselves with negative self-talk and beliefs, our well-being and health will eventually suffer. Fortunately, the reverse is also true. When we hold ourselves in unconditional, genuine love — miracles happen as a matter of course.

The Shaman Within: Channeling Universal Life Force to Heal Your Body

By Therese Wade, MSc

Guest writer for Wake Up World

We live in a sea of subtle energies. When we become conscious of them, we can learn to use them.

Ancient cultures understood that we live in a vast sea of energy. They understood that the planets and stars are conscious beings who communicate with each other. They believed that the trees serve as antennas, which allow natural subtle energies and information to flow up from the Earth to the stars and planets, and from all other celestial bodies into the Earth. They taught that everything and every being has consciousness and channels this energy according to its capabilities, to help facilitate this essential cosmic dialogue. In fact, they understood that all matter, including the physical body, is a gathering of this universal energy. They recognized that our thoughts and emotions are a form of energy, and that when these are in harmony with the living universal energy field, we become clear channels. Then, the life force of the Earth and cosmos flows through us more smoothly and abundantly, guiding our evolution as new perspectives are revealed and advanced abilities are awakened within us. These abilities include heightened creativity, extrasensory perception and the ability to bring about dramatic physical healing. Shamans learn to feel, sense and use this energy without filtering or distorting it. They often refer to this process as becoming a “hollow bone”.

Don’t Lose Hope, Cancer Is Curable – Useful Information from a German Alternative Cancer Specialist

Don’t Lose Hope, Cancer Is Curable.

I believe there is a cure to every disease, even if the disease we are talking about is cancer. When someone is diagnosed with cancer, their minds are flooded with a rush of feelings and emotions. They may feel discouraged because they know nothing about cancer. They may feel confused because they don’t know what treatment suits them. Others feel frustrated because they don’t know how to find a clinic that will provide the best treatment promptly.

The truth is, none of these feelings are necessary. As a matter of fact, you should remain calm and know it will all be well. As a doctor, I have spent many years and resources to research and find how natural substances influence the occurrence and treatment of cancer. With an immense database of scientific data, I shared my skills with other doctors in Germany and most clinics have adopted my hyperthermia protocols as standard procedures for cancer treatment.

Group Drumming Better Than Prozac, Study Suggests

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

A new study published in PLoS scientifically validates what so many drum circle participants have already experienced first hand: group drumming produces significant changes in well-being, including improvements in depression, anxiety and social resilience.

With the World Health Organization identifying depression as the #1 leading cause of disability, globally, and psychiatric medications causing severe side effects, including permanently disabling the body’s self-healing mechanism, drug-free alternatives are needed now more than ever.

Could group drumming provide just such a solution?

7 Health Benefits of Vibroacoustic (Sound & Vibration) Therapy

By Deb Wellmes, MA, SLP, ND

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Like waves of vibration that are eternally connected and influenced by one another, our understanding and appreciation of vibro-tactile healing has ebbed and flowed. Ancient traditions recognized vibration and sound as an important method for returning to balance and healing. Some of the ways these traditions have used sound and vibration include: music, chanting, prayer, toning, and the use of instruments such as drums, bells, singing bowls, gongs, and wind instruments.

As Ancient traditions fell from favor, we lost sight of the powerful benefits of vibro-tactile healing. It has taken great thinkers and scientists millennia to return to this lost knowledge. Perhaps we are so comforted by vibration and sound because as humans, our first experiences within the womb were known and felt as vibration (e.g., our mother’s heartbeat and voice). All matter vibrates and the human body is no different.

Homeopathy, cell salts and flower essences… for a Marine veteran? Yes, that is correct. As second in command of an Infantry Company of 260 marines during the Iraq war in Fallujah in late 2004, Stan Deland has witnessed and endured some very dramatic experiences.

After returning to the U.S., Stan began seeking out different healing modalities to help him process all that occurred during his time overseas. Shortly after seeing an acupuncturist, Stan began using homeopathic remedies, cell salts and flower essences…

Healing With Color: Enhance Your Well-Being With Color Therapy

By Paul Lenda

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Colors… an integral aspect of reality as air and water. A colorless existence is a seemingly-incomprehensible one, minus perhaps what has been described as ‘the Void’ by sages and mystics.

Thanks to the ability for humans to see the visible light spectrum, reality itself seems surreal at times. Even though we see only a narrow band of the full color spectrum, the vast array of colors that exist within the domain of human experience gives life it’s wonderment.

It’s incredible to think not every living thing sees reality in the same way. There are species that only see ultraviolet light whereas others such as snakes and scorpions see infrared light. The ultra-exotic mantis shrimp has 16 color-receptive cones compared with the 4 that humans have, giving way to a much more dramatic and surreal experience of the world.

The Buteyko Method: How This Simple Breathing Technique Can Radically Transform Health

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Most of us who care about health generally pay close attention to the food we eat and the water we drink — settling for nothing less than the cleanest and most nutritious choices whenever possible. We exercise, get enough sleep and try our best to keep stress levels down. Even so, we can somehow feel less than vibrant. Whether coping with a serious disease or simply experiencing a sense of chronic fatigue, depression or anxiety, we may wonder what we’re doing wrong. It may surprise you then that many of our health complaints are actually linked with over-breathing — in other words, taking in too much oxygen.

We readily accept that limiting caloric intake is associated with longevity. After all, over consuming food has been proven time and again to create metabolic damage. Why wouldn’t the same be true for the “nutrient” of oxygen? Especially when we consider that free radicals are created during the normal metabolism of oxygen. These are the same molecules that are exceptionally destructive to cell membranes, proteins and DNA. Contrary to popular thought, taking in an abundance of oxygen is extremely unhealthy. Instead, we should be focusing on creating more efficient utilization of the oxygen already present within the system. This is where the genius of the Buteyko Method comes in.

Scientific Evidence That Music Eases Pain and Anxiety After Surgery

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

If you’re going to be undergoing a medical procedure, or you struggle with chronic pain, reaching for your playlist may be as good as reaching for a bottle of pain pills.

The power of music for relaxation, stress relief, and pain reduction is undeniable, although individual research studies proving the same were too small to show a strong connection. That all changed when researchers pooled the data from 73 randomized clinical trials focusing on the role of music among surgery patients. Researcher Dr. Catherine Meads at Brunel University told NPR:1

“As the studies themselves were small, they really didn’t find all that much… But once we put them all together, we had much more power to find whether music worked or not.”

Dr. Sebi: The Man Who Cures AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes and More

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Meet Dr. Sebi, a pathologist, biochemist and herbalist. He came to the U.S. from Honduras and is on a mission to heal humanity. As it happens, he has been curing some of the most deadly diseases on the planet for almost 30 years. AIDS, cancer, diabetes, lupus and epilepsy are just a few of the ailments he has completely reversed. In fact, he is so committed to his work that he took on the Attorney General of New York in a Supreme Court trial — and won.

Standing Up to the Food and Drug Administration

Back in the 1980’s, Dr. Sebi ran a variety of ads in newspapers like the New York Post, stating: “AIDS has been cured by the Usha Research Institute, and we specialize in cures for Sickle Cell, Lupus, Blindness, Herpes, Cancer and others.” The ad caught the eye of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the agency subsequently sued Dr. Sebi for false advertisement and practicing without a license.
