A Set of 4 Body Movements to Deal with Constipation

The following is a wonderful simple to perform set of body movements that helps to facilitate a bowel movement when things don’t move too well on their own. This set is normally used while performing a yogic kriya (cleanse) technique called Shanka Prakshalana, to move the water out through the intestines, but it works really well for moving the feces through the “plumbing” and out of your system just as well. It also could help with bloating, when the gas doesn’t come out, but be gentle using it in this condition so not to cause any additional pain.

The set of movements

Perform the following sequence of movements. Each movement should be repeated quickly alternating at least four times on each side (therefore four double movements). Read the rest of this entry »

How to Stretch Your Calf Muscles After a Workout

July 27, 2014 by felix | No Comments | Filed in Muscle Cramps, Stretching

You can read and hear about the benefits of exercise and workout everywhere, but it’s unusual to hear about the importance of stretching before and after the aforesaid exercise.

The Benefits of Stretching

After the physical exercises our muscles are tightened and hardened and this cause discomfort, tiredness, and after some time even pain and cramps.

To add injury to the insult the affected muscles can negatively affect other body parts. Not once a seemingly unrelated pain in a joint or a bone could be caused by a tight muscle connected to it.

Recently I have developed pain in the area of my feet. I thought that more exercise would do good, but the outcome was the opposite – after the additional exercise my feet were hurting even more.

I was lost not being able to figure out the cause of the pain. Luckily someone recommended that  I start doing stretching  after each exercise session, and surprisingly after several days of stretching the pain first diminished and then disappeared.

July 25, 2014 by felix | 1 Comment | Filed in Eye Disorders, Su Jok

A stye is an infection the sebaceous glands of Zeis at the base of the eyelashes, or an infection of the apocrine sweat glands of Moll.  Styes are usually caused by the Staphylococcus aureus bacterium. Styes contain water and pus and the bacteria will spread if the stye is forcefully ruptured. For more details on this kind of infection refer to wikipedia.

The following instructions are on how to quickly eliminate this eyelid infection using one or two Su Jok treatments.

Case Study

I will use a real case with my patient who got rid of a Stye in the left eye in 2 days.

This is the photograph of his left eye with the stye on the upper eyelid before the treatment. As you can see the eyelid is swollen and the patient also experienced pain and couldn’t look up, as the swollen eyelid was getting in the way – so it was causing a lot of discomfort.

How To Get Rid Of A Toothache | Self Healing Techniques Series

January 23, 2013 by admin | 21 Comments | Filed in Self Healing, Su Jok, Toothache

Of course, the best thing to do is to see a dentist. However, in cases when you can’t do that, whether it’s due to circumstances or when the toothache appears suddenly, or even when you did visit a dentist and it didn’t help getting rid of the pain, in those cases it is possible to relieve or even completely get rid of the toothache with the help of Su-Jok Therapy.

Where To Find Acupressure Points That Will Help You To Get Rid Of The Toothache?

The most effective way to control toothache is to apply pressure on points that are located around your thumb nail. You will have to find which acupressure point is corresponding to your aching tooth. If the aching tooth is located in the lower jaw, then its corresponding acupressure point will be located near the end of the nail (i.e. edge of the finger). If on the other hand, the ache located on the upper jaw, then the corresponding acupressure point will be located near the root of the nail, i.e. where it starts to grow.

Treatment Of Depression Due To A Loss Of A Loved One

December 13, 2008 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Depression

A female client of mine told me that her husband has passed away recently. He was not old of age. This couple had no children and after her husband’s death my client had no relatives left in this world.

Her husband was a teacher. One day at a party he suddenly lost the ability to speak, and he couldn’t recognize his whereabouts. It never happened before. Doctors diagnosed him with a brain tumor after that incident. And the tumor was removed surgically.

That’s when the battle again the decease started. In the beginning all was quite good. He was even able to go back to work, but within a few month his condition got worse. My client had to leave her job to look after her husband. They tried everything they could to help him get him better, but it was all in vain. In a few months he died while he was at a hospital.

I met this women before, and when I saw her this time I couldn’t recognize her. She became thin and looked quite unwell.

After the husband’s death my client got into a deep depression. She felt she had no reasons left to live. Eventually this feeling became dull, but she still had insomnia, apathy and absence of appetite. That’s when she approached me looking for help.

How To Get Rid Of Insomnia | Self Healing Techniques Series

September 16, 2008 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Insomnia, Massage, Self Healing

Insomnia is characterized by persistent difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep despite having all the conditions conducive to normal sleep. It’s a symptom of a sleeping disorder. Due to lack of sleep, insomniacs typically suffer from functional impairment while awake.

Insomnia could happen because of neuroses, some cardiovascular and mental diseases and also due to damages of brain formations regulating correct alternation of a dream and wakefulness.

Normally healthy people could also have an occasional insomnia which could appear after a physical or intellectual over strain, exhaustion, or due to strong emotions.

It is possible and necessary to cope with this disease. But ideally without the pills, as they don’t help to bring a normal sleep, which must include dreaming, and also pills can create a dependency and the body could create a tolerance to drugs, requiring an increased dosage.

Therefore I would like to offer simple and accessible to everyone ways to get rid of insomnia without resorting to medicine.

How To Strengthen The Immune System | Self Healing Techniques Series

August 14, 2008 by admin | 4 Comments | Filed in Diet, Immune System

It’s known that in order to have a healthy life you needs to have a strong immune system. Your immune system takes care of eliminating most of the illnesses before they manifested themselves and it’s the one that helps you recover quickly from an illness if it happened anyway.

You probably heard that in order to have a strong immune system you need to avoid smoking (including passive smoking), moderate alcohol consumption, keep low stress levels and most importantly — follow a healthy diet.

However it’s also known that the immune system’s strength naturally diminishes with years, which explains why older generations are so prone to illnesses. Therefore it’s really critical to strengthen your immune system as you get older.

Now I’m going to explain how you could strengthen your immune system using techniques from Su Jok.

How to Keep Flat Stomach And Trim Waistline

August 4, 2008 by admin | No Comments | Filed in Diet, Weight Loss

In my experience abdominal muscles are the hardest to maintain in good shape. This is even harder for women. It works in the best way if this is being done from the young age. It’s much harder to do if you weren’t paying attention to it and now decided to get a flat stomach and trim your waistline.

Why we need to keep our stomachs flat?

The obvious reason – is to look “good”, the less obvious one is to be healthy. Having a flat stomach helps prevent injuries and various diseases that can otherwise develop.

Goal Setting

Before you even start the process on getting your stomach flat, it’s very important to set the intention and visualise your stomach flat. Your sub-consciousness will play a big part in this process and it’ll do everything to bring you to the image you’ve created. So every time you start exercises, see yourself the way you want to look.
