Reflexology For The Spirit

Cleanse Your Way to Health

Improving your health means doing lots of different things over time to  feel, think, look, and act better.  Cleanses are popular change-of-season  ways to offload toxins collected in the body over the past weeks and months.  They work well in conjunction with reflexology sessions which offer a mild cleanse as well.

Water is one of the best cleanses out there.  A one-day water cleanse is easy, fast, cheap, and  effective.

Begin your cleanse day with a large glass of water.  Add a slice of lemon if you want.  Then, throughout the day, drink a glass of water.  You want to drink at least one  large glass of clean water every half hour.

But, of course, the cleanse doesn’t have to be water.  Raw, organic, juices of all kinds make good cleanses.  A juice cleanse is best if the foods used are organic, fresh, cold pressed, and raw.  When the juice meets these qualifications, the most nutrition is  available.

Avoid  processed, pasteurized, juices if you possibly can and try not to use anything  with a  shelf life of over two days.

One of the easiest, fastest, cheapest, most effective ways to improve your general health is with cleanses.  In my book “A Healer’s Handbook” I write about intestinal, liver, and lymphatic cleanses.  But, there are other  cleanses out there.

A reflexology session offers a cleanse.  Your regular clients receive a mild cleanse regularly as part of their visit.

When you offer reflexology to client partners who are cleansing, please focus on the intestinal tract, the lymphatic system, and focus on the liver.

Remind them of this bonus as you offer them a drink of water at the end of the session.

Make Time for Yourself, Reflexologists!

One of the really nice things about being a Reflexologist is that 25 sessions per week is considered to be a full time career.

Even with less than a full time client-partner load, it’s easy to lose sight of yourself and your personal needs as you  look after your client partners and their needs.

You can prevent this from happening if you pamper yourself regularly and make sure your own needs for time and space are met.

A reflexologist who  protects a bit of personal  time and space is a much better healer to his/her client partners.  Your life is just as important as those of your client-partners, family, friends.  Actually, an argument can be made that you are most important because all these people depend on you.

We all enter the healing arts wanting to be the best practitioner we can be.  Taking time for yourself is part of that mix.  Don’t  feel guilty about this.  You need rejuvenation and energizing as much as other practitioners, and at least as much as your client-partners.

Begin by claiming one of those 25 weekly sessions for yourself.  Make a weekly appointment  with another practitioner and receive a session.  This might be a good opportunity to get to know other practitioners by visiting a different professional   every week.

Throughout the week, there are other things you can do to maintain your rejuvenation and energy.

  1.  Script  a healing journal.
  2. Pamper yourself with relaxing baths.  Use candles, salts, essential oils.
  3. Read a book.
  4. Take a few moments  to enjoy a cool  fruit smoothie and a magazine.
  5. Exercise regularly.
  6. Pursue a hobby.
  7. Get yourself out in nature to enjoy the sounds, sights, textures, and smells without technology.

Finally, don’t take everything on your own shoulders all the time.

Sustenance! What is that?

Vitamins and minerals are  important to prevent  disease and   retard aging.

Many, many books have been written about which vitamins and minerals we should all be taking.  An early  draft of  my book “A Healer’s Handbook”   had much information included in the chapters.   I was uncomfortable with the information and removed it.  It took months/years to assemble the information and get it in the manuscript.  It took only a few minutes to delete it.  I’ve never regretted that move.

Years later, the book is now out…without the information.   I’m still happy with that decision.

That being said, I’m now going to share information about some nutritional supplements with you.  This information is based on my own research, what I’ve learned over many years.  I’m offering my professional opinion here.  You may not, probably will not, agree with any or all I present.  That’s okay.  The whole subject is very controversial.

The controversy is based on differing opinions between science-based and belief-based groups.  These 2 groups of people  see supplements in different ways.  Belief based people see supplements as natural products which:

promote health

overcome dietary deficiencies

are preferable to FDA products.

Science-based groups see supplements as being:

of questionable value

and of questionable safety.

I could continue on about this conflict for another 10,000 words…but I’m not.

There are many, many supplements out there.  The questions to ask yourself are 2:

Which of these products  should I take and how often?

I recommend that, whatever you choose, make sure the products come from reputable companies whose products are routinely tested by independent laboratories for purity.  You want to be able to purchase a vitamin, mineral, or other supplement,   composed of chemicals which are listed on the label.

You want your supplements to be manufactured by companies which have independent laboratories buy their vitamins or supplements off the shelf, test them in their own facilities, and publish the results.

There are many, many books out there recommending vitamins, minerals, etc.  The authors of these books will list the products and then tell you how much and when to take them.  I won’t  duplicate this information.  What I’m doing is telling you what I use, and why I use it.  Nobody is paying me to recommend these products to you.  I’m not selling them, either.

These are simply  the best products I can find.

The first product is one that I feel virtually everyone should be taking.

Wiley’s Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil is an Omega-3 Oil.  It’s processed from Alaskan Pollack grown in a well managed fishery.  The fish is turned into oil and purified, then bottled and shipped out.  This Omega 3 Oil is 100% American made.

If you can’t find Wiley’s Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil in a store near you, contact Village Apothecary, Woodstock, NY, 12498 and they’ll ship it to you.

I’m really sold on Omega 3 oils.  If you are only going to take one thing…make it Wiley’s Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil.

Everyone recommends multivitamins.  A multivitamin is a basic in our culture now. Like all the other health care professionals, nutritionists, etc. I recommend that we all, at least, take multivitamins.

I take multivitamins every day with lunch.

The multivitamin I take is manufactured in Boulder, Colorado by Nutriplex, a woman-owned, organic company.  All Nutriplex products offer whole food nutrition with superior quality and nutritional standards.  All Nutriplex products are formulated from evidence-based research.

The name of the Nutriplex multivitamin is Whole Food.

I take 3 Nutriplex products daily:

BFood

Whole Food

Promin.

Whole Food is the multivitamin that everyone recommends.  .

BFood is a formula offering B-vitamin nutrition.

I take other nutritional products as well, but these are the basic ones I take.  I rely on these products to do the job they need to do.

I hope you feel the same way about the supplements you take.

Sleep for a Healthy Lifestyle

Bully 6

As a reflexology practitioner, it’s important that you stay as healthy as possible.    When you  take care of your body, you  inspire your client partners to take care of theirs.

Many conditions  lurk unnoticed for years to develop in the body before they are recognized for what they are:  diseases that, in the early stages, are seen as fatigue, headaches, insomnia.

But, whatever these conditions are called, they are actually ongoing health issues that no one has solved.  Often, we just ignore these problems.

“I just need to learn to live with this……” is a remark I hear often.  The problem is common, persistent, chronic.

Now is the  time to see these issues for what they are and take steps to deal with them before they become full blown, serious,  illnesses.  Look at yourself:

Do you look healthy?

Do you feel healthy?

Do you have enough energy for all the things you want to do each day?

Do you sleep well?

Do you have digestive issues?

Do you feel toxic?

Make 2017 the year you turn your life around.

Begin  by learning to get enough sleep.

The first step in a healthy sleep is having a healthy sleeping environment.

Do you or your sleep partner snore?  This can rob you of hours and hours of sleep, necessary to good health.  People don’t realize it but snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnea, a serious medical condition which contributes to Alzheimer’s.  So, today, begin to address the snoring.

Snoring is not always  expensive to treat.  So, make your first step to a healthy year, a trip to a physician to address any and all snoring and sleep issues.

The second thing to do is declutter  the sleep space.  Move the home office into another room.  Move the TV out.  The bedroom is for sleeping and sex.  Everything else goes in another part of your home or apartment.

About an hour before you are ready to go to bed, begin to calm yourself down.   Prepare your body to sleep.

Taking sleeping pills is not the answer.

Instead, don’t watch television or play video games immediately before sleep.  Attend fewer evening meetings.

Is your bed comfortable?  Do you have enough blankets?  How about the pillows?

What is your most comfortable sleep position?  Do you sleep better on your stomach or are you a sleeper who prefers to be face up?  Do your bed, bedding, and pillows encourage a healthy sleep every night?

Finally, schedule sufficient hours to sleep.  You need at least eight hours of sleep in order to get the optimum energy and rejuvenation out of your body the next day.

One thing you can do to improve your sleep situation is to receive a reflexology session weekly.  People universally claim that regular reflexology encourages better sleep.  So, while you are offering reflexology sessions to your client partners to encourage their improved sleep, schedule  reflexology sessions for yourself.  At least, that way, you’ll know exactly how wonderful a reflexology encouraged sleep really feels.

Make it a habit to offer self-reiki therapy to encourage sleep.  Teach reiki therapy to your client partners so they can give themselves sessions as they go to bed at night.

One of the secrets to a healthy body is sufficient sleep on a continued basis.  Share this secret with your client partners!
