They Don’t Teach These in Medical School

The Journal of Patient Safety puts the number of people killed in American hospitals by preventable medical errors at 440,000 yearly. The complete number is much higher, but even using the 440K figure, that’s the equivalent of 60 Jumbo Jet crashes every month killing all on board. How long would we let an industry operate that crashed two Jumbo Jets full of people every day? Would you willingly get on a Jumbo Jet with those odds? Think you might look for an alternative?

American medicine is amazing when it comes to trauma and emergency medicine. But for chronic complaints and illnesses, general overall healthcare, our conventional approach is pretty narrow. The majority of Americans now turn to alternative medicine before…

Top Ten Rules for Healthy Living

Being healthy is our natural state. When we’re not healthy, it means something has gotten out of balance. In order to keep the body in harmony with that natural state we must align with — wait for it — Nature. That’s not always easy to do considering how modern society has assaulted and insulted the planet. But with only a modicum of effort, we can modulate the damage by adjusting behavior. This Top Ten List is loaded with seemingly simplistic suggestions, in no particular order. When you try them, you’ll see the discipline required.

Drink Water. The planet and our bodies are both about 75 percent H2O so it makes sense to keep it that way. Here’s the rub: most…

Fear is Not an Option

Life is simpler than you thought. There are but two emotions that energize our existence, that drive our behavior. At any given moment we are experiencing the emotion of Love or of fear. Once we examine the choice, we realize fear is not an option.

Love expands, includes, welcomes. Fear is Love’s opposite. Fear blocks, constricts, immobilizes. When we are afraid, expansion is impossible. Fear temporarily blocks the flow of Love. Love will continue. That is why fear is futile.

When a system blocks energy, whatever that system is, it will fail and destroy itself. A car engine that runs out of the oil that keeps the resistance low will blow up. The electricity flowing through the wall of the…

Don’t Be a Toaster: Redux

In Heartland Healing for June 2, 2015, we wrote about the swamp of seemingly dangerous energy we’ve created with our Age of Technology. Massive power lines drape the continent, indeed, the world. Long-range Extremely Low Frequency radio waves, dozens of miles long, batter the earth’s crust, core and oceans just for the sake of communicating with our submerged war machines. Our homes course with dirty electricity radiating from the walls, now enhanced by mandated Compact Fluorescent Lights. We microwave our food. (How good a practice could that be since we nicknamed it “nuke,” and “zap”?) We sit with energy-radiating laptops and iPads nestled near our gonads. We handle cell phones that generate powerful signals, pressing them against our brainpan, some…

Sea of Energy

You can run from it. It will find you. You can descend into the deepest cavern of our planet or zoom out into the farthest galaxy but you can’t hide. It is everywhere. It is the essential substrate of existence and it is all that is. It is energy. We live in a sea of energy that is very real and is completely and wholly pervasive. There is nowhere in the entire universe of creation where energy is not.

Fortunately for us, along with the other living beings on this planet, we have adapted well over millions of years to the presence of energy in the natural universe. Certainly there are variances of the energy spectrum that can put us…

Queen of Kimchi and Her Magic Bus

Editor's Note: Due to mechanical difficulties, the presentation has been cancelled at Village Pointe. But read this important information anyway.

During years of working as his recording engineer, I watched Frank Zappa consume gallons of strong, black, Turkish coffee and incinerate thousands of Winston cigarettes. It wasn’t until after his death that I learned of Frank’s fondness for the fermented Korean relish, kimchi. An assistant to Dr. Wu, the renowned doctor of Oriental Medicine, told me Frank preferred a kimchi-laced diet when Dr. Wu was treating him for advanced prostate cancer. In my imagination, I could see FZ propped up in bed smoking a Winston, guzzling coffee and scarfing down kimchi. I miss that he’s not around.

Kimchi is but…

Forgiveness Heals

It is said and written that forgiveness heals. Don Henley sang about it. Jesus taught it. A Course in Miracles describes it as the final solution to the illusion of separateness. It’s the ultimate in healing arts. It’s about forgiveness.

Is that a fairy tale fugue or is there something real to experience about forgiveness? If the opposite of airy-fairy is scientific evidence, then we can stand on that leg if you wish because there is ample research showing forgiveness provides any number of metrics denoting better health.

To reach the deepest level of forgiveness, the truly transcendent place where healing transpires, we must absorb the metaphysics of the matter. After all, feelings of resentment and blame — the phlogiston…
