Creating a Better World: Heal The Whole by Healing Yourself

By: Dr. Stewart Bitkoff

Most people would agree we all want to live in a kinder, more humane world.  A world where there is respect for human life, economic resources are shared, and the old and infirm are treated with dignity.  In each of these areas there is room for improvement.  Economically many are still without the basic necessities of life and go hungry.  Even in the richest country on earth, often the sick go untreated.

The Power of Sound: How Vibration Helps Us Heal

HJ: Every atom in the universe and cell in your body is vibrating constantly and this can be directed and enhanced through the power of sound frequencies in the form of words and music, among other things.

The science of modulating brainwave frequencies with music and sound is well-known and has been studied and developed for some time. However, researchers are only beginning to understand how words and other forms of vibration affect consciousness and either heal or harm us, depending on intention and usage. Yet this is an area of knowledge that mystics have known about and studied for millenia. The ancient Rishis, Seers, and Yogis of India have developed intricate, complex mantras that play upon the effectiveness of sound for enhancing consciousness and inducing healing of the mind, body and spirit.

Many people do not know that the roof of the mouth has no less than 84 different meridian points which are activated when we speak or chant. The form of the tongue when it hits the roof of the mouth determines which combination of meridians are stimulated and therefore certain words and sounds have more profound effects than others. These meridians are connected directly to the body’s nervous system and are partly responsible for the healing effect of mantras and sacred sounds.

Anyone who enjoys music can attest to the power of sound in their lives, but few understand why it is so. The wonderful article below by Judith Acosta explores sound and vibration and how these forces affect our consciousness and can induce healing. Read more of this post

How Sound Affects Human Consciousness and Health

The Dharma Of Sound Healing

By Diane Mandle | Sound Energy Healing

Music has always been recognized as having a powerful effect on human consciousness. But in the past few years, there has been more research into the science of sound, and how it can be used to improve our lives. We are learning why different kinds of music and sounds have the effects that they do on the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. Science tells us that all life is energy in one form or another. Further, this energy is eternal, changing and morphing from one shape or form to another. Each ‘energy shape’ has its own particular pattern of frequencies, or vibrations. When one form experiences a matching frequency in the form of a musical note, the form will begin to vibrate in sympathy with the note in sympathetic resonance. A strong enough vibration can even cause a form to restructure itself, as has been noted with cancer cells, crystal glasses, water crystals etc. Read more of this post

Eating Your Way to Health, Happiness, and Well-Being

HJ: I can tell you this with utmost certainty: there is no quicker way to health than the adoption of a diet of whole, organic, unrefined foods and there is no quicker way to disease and malaise than the lack thereof.  The role of whole foods in health is greatly underestimated by the current medical establishment, although this is changing quite rapidly.  The powers that be are aware of this fact, which is why they have fought tooth and nail over the last century to devitalize our foods into nutritionless, genetically modified matter that serves little purpose than to keep us in an addicted, chemicalized stupor.

The Fraudulent American Healthcare System

In the past 5 years, our country’s healthcare has been as weak and lack-luster as Barack Obama’s promises.

Yes, all you liberals out there i actually said that.

And I have proper grounds to say it because I am in the healthcare field.  I get past all the red tape in hospitals and other medical facilities that most people living in this nation do not.

If you are an illegal immigrant, chances are I’m not your biggest fan, nor do I agree with standardized healthcare.

Yes its nice in theory for everyone in this country to have health insurance.

Guess what?

It is not economically feasible and working class Americans should not have to carry the weight of others.  If that is the case, then maybe some poiticians should donate some of their bloated salaries to the less fortunate. Before I go on some political rant Im going to educate you on some topics that will affect you and your loved-ones in the future.

I’m just gonna scratch the surface here so let it marinate in your head like some A1 on a porterhouse. Read more of this post

My Top 5 Writing Tools

I have been wanting to do this post for a while and share what I use to do some of my writing and blog posts.

Here are my top 5 tools and instruments for writing!

Music is a Must.

1. Music

Music is an absolute must when I am writing.

I need to have something to have my mind flowing and in a positive state. This is easily achieved through putting on my Bose AE-2 headphones on full volume and tuning out of the outside world. It gives my mind a chance to go completely nuts and spit out anything that I have stored in the back of it.

The type of music doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you enjoy the music and it is putting you in a good mood. When I am in a good positive mood and writing, it doesn’t feel like I am writing, it is more a flow state of my fingers hitting the keys and words being produced in a well structured fashion.

If you don’t feel like that when you are writing, you are not writing in a state of your full potential.

Blast some music and just have at it. Don’t expect anything.

Just write.

2. Coffee

I need some stimulation to get all of my thoughts out quick and easy.

Coffee is a big help due to the caffeine contained in coffee.

I choose coffee because I like the taste and the hot temperature tends to wake my brain up.

Caffeine releases dopamine in your brain which gives you more motivation, focus and drive.

I take a lot of other supplements as well.

For my full list read: The Ultimate Supplement Stack.

Free Your Mind.

3. Meditation

Meditating right before I write lets me explore every single angle of what I am about to write about.

It is a great feedback method and a way to formulate my thoughts before I sit down to pound them out.

I have a lot of articles written on meditation if you would like to explore the amazing practice:

Top 5 Reasons You Don’t Meditate

Top 5 Reasons You Should Meditate

The Seven Human Energy Chakras

How to Crack Your Intuitive Third-Eye Chakra

The Power of The Subconscious Mind

Out-of-Body Experiences

The Power of Positive Thinking

4. Marijuana

Marijuana: Hey at Least its Not Meth Either.

The ultimate creativity tool.

If you have any objection to pot, and you believe it is a harmful substance, you have been misinformed and lied to.

It simply isn’t.

I am not going to lie, a majority of this site and my writing was created and written while under the influence of marijuana.

I guess it makes me lazy and not want to do anything…

I even work out on pot.

Paranoia? It’s an illusion. Check out this video.

Pathetic propaganda you have been conditioned with.

5. Alpha Brain

Probably one of the best supplements I take.

Alpha Brain is a nootropic which basically means it is a brain enhancing supplement full of great vitamins and minerals

The Most Advanced Nootropic on The Market.

I hope you try some of my tools and ideas out and give writing a shot if you aren’t already interested in it.

It is a great way to release your thoughts, express yourself, and share what you have to say with the world.

I am going to keep doing it, and I encourage you to as well! 🙂

Panic Attacks: Stop Scaring Yourself!

WHAT IS A PANIC ATTACK?

Panic Attack!

A panic attack is a period of intense fear and worry that a person experiences with or with out an identified trigger that appears to come out of nowhere.

A panic attack usually does not last for more than 10 minutes.

People who have experienced a panic attack at some point in their lives have described it as the most terrifying and uncomfortable situation they have ever been in, especially if the person was having a panic attack in a public/social situation.

More times than not, panic attacks are mistaken for heart attacks and many people rush to the ER for medical attention. People usually are diagnosed with panic attacks when the doctors find absolutely nothing wrong with them. It takes a lot of time for most people to accept that what they experienced was “just” a panic attack because of how intense the feeling could be.

A panic attack can be seen as some kind of a “glitch” in our autonomic nervous system which is responsible to send a general “alarm” to our bodies to either “fight or flight” when we are in a dangerous situation. People who experience panic attacks may have an over sensitive or hyper-reactive autonomic nervous system.

TWO TYPES OF FEARS:

During a panic attack a person will experience two types of fears.

The primary fear is the initial and physical experience of pure panic; racing heart, interrupted breathing, sweating, etc.

SYMPTOMS THAT COMMONLY OCCUR DURING A PANIC ATTACK:

1.) Numbness/tingling sensations

2.) Dizziness,faintness, difficulty balancing

3.) Racing and/or Pounding heart

4.) Chest Tightness

5.) Sweating

6.) Shaking

7.) Hot Flashes

8.) Feeling unreal or as if you’re in a dream

9.) Nausea or abdominal discomfort

10.) Shortness of breath

11.) Fear of dying

12.) Fear of “losing it”

13.) Fear of losing control

14.) Intense need to flee or escape

The secondary fear are the thoughts that follow these physical sensations a person experiences during a panic attack.

THE CYCLE:

Treating individuals who experience panic attacks and a variety of different anxiety disorders, I’ve come to learn that addressing the secondary fears (thoughts) first have been extremely helpful in decreasing the intensity of the attacks. Let’s take a look at some of the very common false beliefs and thoughts that most people have during panic attacks.

“I’m going to stop breathing”

“I’m going to pass out”

“I’m going crazy”

“I’m going to embarrass myself”

“I’m going to fall”

I’m going to have a heart attack”

“I’m going to die”

These thoughts and internal dialogue will only intensify your panic attack, so cut it out!

Not so easy right?

Well here are some facts about panic attacks that may help you negate these thoughts and help you kick panic attacks in the ass.

MYTH BUSTING!

Busted!

You will NOT suffocate because of a panic attack:

When distressed, your body tends to tighten the muscles, and that includes your neck and chest muscles which reduces the extent of your respiratory function. This does not mean there is anything wrong with your lungs or breathing at all. If you are not taking in enough oxygen, your brain will utilize it’s built in mechanism to force you to take deeper breaths or gasp. Yes, the feeling of suffocating IS NOT PLEASANT, but trust that you will not actually suffocate. There are no recorded deaths of suffocation during panic attacks 🙂

You will NOT faint because of a panic attack- Due to hyperventilation, (fast,fast breathing) during a panic attack, you may feel light headed which may give off the impression that you are going to faint. NO! Your blood circulation to your brain has slightly decreased. This is far from deadly. Allow the light-headed feelings to diminish, they will with time, along with slowed breathing.

Guess what!!? During a panic attack your heart is beating a little quicker; people usually faint when their hearts slow down.

So Much Panic!

You will NOT fall during a panic attack:

Sometimes you may feel as if your legs are too weak to hold your body which triggers the thoughts “I’m going to fall”, which then leads to “I’m going to embarrass myself or get hurt”.

Adrenaline is released during a panic attack which sometimes causes dilation in blood vessels in your legs. This feeling is JUST a feeling. Your legs are not actually weaker, they are just as strong as they were before the panic attack.

You will NOT go CRAZY during a panic attack:

A common reaction to rapid breathing is the sensation of feeling “not in reality”. Again, this is JUST a sensation. If you experience a feeling of disorientation or “dream like”, tell yourself that this is just a reaction to a change in your breathing. People do not go crazy from a panic attack. Mental illnesses are complex and usually progress slowly over time. There are no recorded “psychosis” due to a panic attack.

Stay Strong!

You will NOT have a heart attack during a panic attack- A healthy and strong heart can beat 200 beats per minute for as long as several weeks without a problem! Your heart can withstand a lot more than you think it can. There is a MAJOR difference between what your heart feels like during a panic attack and during a true heart attack.

THE DIFFERENCES:

During a panic attack your heart may pound and beat more rapidly and sometimes people complain of some pain. This pain quickly subsides.

During a true heart attack, there is much more consistent pain involved and intense pressure against the chest. This pain gets worse and worse.

EKG research indicates that during a panic attack, there are no abnormalities in the heart other than rapid beating. EKG tests indicates quite a few abnormalities in the heart during a heart attack.

APPLYING IT:

Now that you have learned a little more about the realities of panic attacks, try to replace your catastrophic thoughts with your knew FACTUAL knowledge. You are not going to die from a panic attack. Yes, they are scary, traumatic, and serve as interruptions in the lives of many, but don’t give them THAT much credit.

You may tell yourself, even after learning and knowing all of this, that during your next panic attack, that this one is different. you may tell yourself, “This time it’s really a heart attack.”

Well now you will know that that is one of the most common thoughts people have during panic attacks.

A last piece of advice- Embrace the symptoms. The more you try to avoid these symptoms,  such as isolating yourself, constantly seeking medical attention, avoiding walking,talking and just being during a panic attack, the more you will reinforce your false beliefs that they are dangerous. You are stronger than a panic attack. Laugh at it. Millions of people experience panic attacks.

THERE ARE NO RECORDED DEATHS DUE TO PANIC ATTACKS!

You will NOT go CRAZY during a panic attack:

A common reaction to rapid breathing is the sensation of feeling “not in reality”.

Again, this is JUST a sensation. If you experience a feeling of disorientation or “dream like”, tell yourself that this is just a reaction to a change in your breathing. People do not go crazy from a panic attack. Mental illnesses are complex and usually progress slowly over time. There are no recorded “psychosis cases” due to a panic attack.

You will NOT have a heart attack during a panic attack- A healthy and strong heart can beat 200 beats per minute for as long as several weeks without a problem! Your heart can withstand a lot more than you think it can. There is a MAJOR difference between what your heart feels like during a panic attack and during a true heart attack.

ATHLETES WOULD BE DROPPING DEAD:

If our hearts could not sustain some rapid beating once in a while, don’t you think athletes would be dropping to the floor left and right?

You may tell yourself, even after learning and knowing all of this, that during your next panic attack, that this one is different. you may tell yourself, “This time it’s really a heart attack”. Well now you will know that that is one of the most common thoughts people have during panic attacks.

A last piece of advice- Embrace the symptoms. The more you try to avoid these symptoms,  such as isolating yourself, constantly seeking medical attention, avoiding walking,talking and just being during a panic attack, the more you will reinforce your false beliefs that they are dangerous. You are stronger than a panic attack. Laugh at it. Millions of people experience panic attacks every day.

No One Dies From Panic Attacks!

THERE ARE NO RECORDED DEATHS DUE TO PANIC ATTACKS.

Legalize Hemp AND Marijuana!

The USA is built on hypocrisy.

Only in America could a government preach about “sustainability” and “green jobs” and yet outlaw the growth of one of the most beneficial species of plants in the known world. Simply put, too many industries would be affected by the legalization of hemp.

Hemp contains less than 1 percent of the active ingredient in marijuana, THC.

See the chart below for just a few uses.

Need I point out that hemp is a hardy plant, able to be grown in almost any climate/soil combination, requires virtually no pesticides, and actually IMPROVES the soil quality where it is grown?

That the fibers from it are stronger than any other plant, especially cotton?

That wallboard and other construction materials made from hemp are less costly and more durable than wood and/or artificial materials?

That the retail market for hemp is in the millions of dollars annually in the USA, but we are forced to IMPORT it from other countries?

I could literally continue forever, yet instead, I will post a well-done video.

Now, on to marijuana.

Marijuana has been used for over 4000 years, and not one death has ever been attributed to it.

It has a myriad of possible medical uses, yet still remains illegal under federal law. Even more repugnant is the fact that various states, most notably California, have legalized marijuana for medical purposes, but the systems put into place to deliver medicine to patients actually come under ARMED RAIDS by jackbooted federal thugs.

Why, who would want to keep people from getting natural medicine which carries zero percent of physical addiction and almost no lasting side effects?

BIG PHARMA.

They don’t want anyone getting better without getting their cut.

So instead of being able to eat a brownie or smoke a vaporizer (each of which cuts the only harmful effect of marijuana, the smoking, out of the equation), it is the US government’s assertion that if you have pain, you have to take a prescription. It will probably be an opioid, which in addition to being extremely addictive, also carries a laundry list of side effects, including liver damage.

Moving on to the mental health arena, anti-depressants were an 11 BILLION dollar market in just the US in 2010!

These drugs also have a VERY long list of unpleasant side effects.

And to think of all the afflictions that doctors can’t even experiment with marijuana on, including an issue near and dear to my heart: Autism.

Marijuana has one major side effect, and it is man-made:

This may be in the 1950’s, but doctors and Pharmaceutical Companies are doing the same thing today, just in different ways that are kept from the public.

This video’s contradiction to today’s views is pretty amusing.
