Bones for Life

July 6, 2018

You may know that I was a Feldenkrais practitioner years ago and I credit that with my good movement practices throughout my life. I haven’t done any real exercise since I gave up dance 3 years ago but my daily walks with the dog and deep breathing keep me fit.

Now I came across Ruthy Alon’s work with Feldenkrais again. She was one of Moshe Feldenkrais’ earliest students and now is close to 90. She has a program called Bones for Life that is on dvds that you can download. I love Ruthy so I signed up right away.

I downloaded 24 90 minute segments and I am doing half a segment every day if possible. It has totally revived my movement! I straightened up more and I walk better already. I realized I had been giving into the aging BS message from the culture and I’ve kicked that to the curb again ๐Ÿ˜‰

She has a long cloth wrap that you can use to do a lot of the movements and eventually I will be putting it on my head like a crown so I can emulate the wonderful women in Africa carrying big loads and having strong, flexible bones all their lives. You can make your own out of 7 yds of 36 inch wide non-stretch cotton.

So here are some sample videos that you can watch to see if you would be interestedย http://www.movementintelligence.org/video.html and here

And here is where you can read more about it and order the program. She has other programs as well that I will get when I have finished this one. There is also a short version with 6 lessonsย  http://bonesforlife.com/

There are also video clips made by various practitioners on youtube.

Here is my honest assessment after looking at the program with new eyes ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s been 30 years since I was a practitioner!

Ruthy’s Feldenkrais teaches how to be present in your body, how to move in small increments and short lessons that add up over a six day workshop to real change.

It feels strange at first. We are not accustomed to paying attention to small movements of the body. I am so grateful they put it on video because it is too much to learn all at once IMHO.

But, walking around after each segment, you get to feel the difference in your body; your breathing becomes more open, your stiffness melts away, your restrictions in movement from old injuries are gently released. I know that from watching the people in the videos. They are totally different at the end of the 6 days.

It’s not for people who go to the gym and work their muscles out hard enough to create endorphins. It’s about learning more about this beautiful body we live in and how it was supposed to move. A push on the foot is supposed to go up through your entire body and raise the head; not get trapped and diverted by a twerky shoulder or a crooked neck.

I am so grateful to have found this work again and to have the time and space to do it daily.

You can also find teachers who have been through this program and who teach it in segments. Most cities have Feldenkrais practitioners now.

This program beats any ‘exercise’ based program for bones out there. It teaches your brain the better ways to move your body and your brain never forgets completely. With it you can recover slowly and carefully from injury. It requires patience, persistence and a willingness to follow instructions even when your mind doesn’t get it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Remember, the mind is the last to KNOW anything ๐Ÿ˜‰ Knowing is a brain, heart and gut combo.

So, I don’t get any commission from this. I just want all of you wonderful, intelligent women who I talk to about my vest to have a new tool.

Blessings,

Pam

 

Happy New Year, Sisters!

January 8, 2018

I start out 2018 in enormous gratitude! The Thomas Fire came so close to my mobile home that I evacuated twice, then came back home to lie on the couch at night and watch the flames creep down the hillside.

I had been remodeling for 4 months, doing most of the work myself, learning lots of new skills, and my home was finally becoming a wonderful nest full of art and stuff I’ve collected from all over the world. It was impossible to know what to take with me in my little car with the dog and the cat. Each time I evacuated I packed different stuff! What a wonderful lesson that was!

And now I am grateful for something else that I recently discovered – Tree Sisters! This is an organization born from the dream of one woman who is combining the growing of trees in the sub-tropics and the re-education of women all over the world to come together and be the best that they can be.

We can change the dead-end path the world is now on. Move from being a consumer species to a restorer species.

We are at the edge of extinction! The facts are real and concrete about how many species of animals, plants, insects – every life form – are going extinct every day now from mankind’s indifference and exploitation.

But we all came here at this time to make the shift into the New Earth and we all have a part to play. I have signed on to be a treesister and I will donate all I can to the cause, including a ten percent tithe on the $35- I make, labor and profit, on the vests.

I have spent the last 3 years in awakening to the evil that believes it owns our planet and saying ‘What can I do?’
Now I know what I can do – join hands with women all over the globe in reforesting, re-educating, restoring, pulling women up from sexual slavery and indentured servitude. The feminine is coming into it’s own now and it will take us all holding hands to restore the damage that has been done.

And I have to say I have enormous confidence in the special abilities of humans to work towards good. I know most of us are deeply brainwashed and hardly have time to look up from working, eating and sleeping, from all our responsibilities, but, when we do wake up and look around, we will be a power that has never before been seen.

And the good men will support us! The ones who aren’t addicted to success, meaning money and prestige and power.

So this may be too Woo-woo for some of my customers but I’m done apologizing for that ๐Ÿ˜‰

And for those who want to explore TreeSisters just click on the link and you’ll be taken to the website.

May this year be blessed in every way for all of you. I actually send love to all my customers, past, present and future, in my meditations and have done for years ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blessings and new Hope,

Pam

New Study – Milk is Bad for your Bones

November 6, 2017

A study done in Sweden and published in the British Medical Journal reveals that milk fuels cancer and is bad for your bones.

“The study, which tracked 61,433 women aged 39 to 74 over 20 years, and 45,339 men of similar age for 11 years, found that the more cowโ€™s milk people drank, the more likely they were to die or experience a bone fracture during the study period.”

This is a great article, very well-written that all women need to read. The effect of milk on our bones has to do with unbalancing the calcium/magnesium ratio. I have an article on that on this site which I wrote ten years ago.

It also has to do with pasteurization, which makes the food value of milk pretty much obsolete. It becomes a negative that the body has to eliminate, rather than a positive with food value. Make sure you catch this piece:

Dairies count on many heat treatments to mask their inferior sanitary conditions: milk filled with pus, manure and debris. Consumer Reports found 44% of 125 pasteurized milk samples contained as many as 2200 organisms per cubic centimeter (fecal bacteria, coliforms).” Eeeeek!

I know milk – not to mention, cheese – is very hard to give up. We have all been well programmed! Although the article does say cheese is not as bad for us as milk. I did it years ago and I still fall for it sometimes. But now there are otherย  studies connecting it with cancer as well, it’s really time to put our big girl pants on and put it behind us.

The link to cancer has to do with the way farmers pump the poor cows full of hormones so they lactate until they die. That is not natural and was not done when our parents drank their unhomogenized milk back in the day.

Whenever someone says to me on the phone, ‘Oh, I couldn’t give up milk ( or cheese) I know they are addicted and they probably won’t listen until it’s too late and they have destroyed their health. That’s a choice we all have to make for ourselves. But maybe reading this article will help you choose.

Here’s the link.

You can also read my previous blog on belief change for a tool to change your behavior around dairy.

You could install some of these new beliefs:

I only feed my body food that nourishes it.
I love my healthy body more than my taste buds.
I am releasing my addiction to dairy right now.
I can easily replace dairy with other delicious foods.
I am stronger than my cravings.

You can think up your own ๐Ÿ˜‰

Blessings,

Pam

Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Reality

October 31, 2017

I have written about our beliefs changing our reality before and it’s hard for me to know how many people accept the importance that their beliefs have in their lives. For instance our beliefs about health, aging, drugs, etc. are affecting our bodies every minute.

Wouldn’t it be nice to think of growing older as an adventure, with new explorations on our horizons? My adventures are not so much in the outer world right now but on the inner plane. I can learn anything I want to from the computer, books and research and I can change my beliefs and my health in a few minutes.

I don’t accept the American way of dying, slow and tortuous with 90% of our health spending in the last ten years, sucking away our children’s inheritance.

I’ve installed the beliefs that support me being happy, healthy and learning new things until I curl up my toes one night far from this one.

But, although I have known about beliefs being vitally important, I did not find out how to change them easily until now. I’ve been searching all my life for this and I’ve finally found it.

It’s tricky for me to know what will offend some of my customers so I have put the information on my other site where I am not selling anything. It’s where I can be more woo-woo and more adventurous than here. This is a site about bone health primarily.

I actually haven’t done much on the other site recently because I have been too busy finding out about all the secrets that have been hidden from us for years in the US. It all blew me off balance for a long while.

But now I have found out how to change my beliefs quickly and easily it makes the future look more positive. I am excited to share it with you – for free – so if you are open-minded to finding out the power that was given to us all to create the lives that we want, please go to the other blog and read about it there http://healthyover50.com/belief-and-reality-change/

Blessings,

The Calcium Lie

August 19, 2017

Anyone who reads my site knows that I have been warning women about the dangers of calcium for decades. Calcium supplements are bad for your health, plain and simple. They increase menopausal symptoms, hurt your bones, are bad for your babies and increase heart disease.

Now here is a book, written by a doctor, for those who only believe what an MD says ;), that puts the whole story out for you clearly.

I ordered my copy today although I know all this stuff, so I can convince women who visit me with the examples and studies in the book. You probably know I’m not too enthralled by scientific studies because most of them have turned out to be outright falsifications. But this is a white hat doctor who has used the honest studies.

Dr Robert Thompson released the first volume of The Calcium Lie in 2008 to get the word out about all of the dangers of calcium and the truth about bone health. But most doctors weren’t listening, so now he has updated his book. Check it out here http://www.calciumlie.com/

Considering how much calcium is added to all kinds of foods, you could be eating way too much calcium even if you don’t take the supplements. So read your labels and don’t buy anything that has been fortified with calcium. It’s probably not good for you anyway.

Go to the site and read the information there even if you decide not to get the book and tell all the women you know that added calcium is not your friend. Get your calcium from eating or juicing greens and you will be affecting your life enormously for the better.

Update – 10/31/17

A woman called to buy a vest today and was asking which kind of calcium is better. She had a health history that made her cautious about heart attacks.

So I had glanced at the book when it arrived but I was busy remodeling my house and hadn’t read it yet. I thought I’d look at the book quickly this evening and see if I could find the connection between heart attacks and calcium.

In the first 2 chapters I learned that all supplementary calcium is bad for you and he says we should all be taking Ionic trace minerals instead because we need ALL minerals and we need them in Ionic form so our bodies can absorb them easily. They have a charge on them which allows them to move into the cell.

I take one called Omica Super Ionic – fulvic and ocean minerals.

Also he says we should be putting Himalayan or sea salt in all the water we drink. That’s funny because I started doing that a few months ago and now my pH balance is perfect – 7.25, all the time and I could never get it perfect before, even though I took baking soda at night.

The way I do that is to make a ‘Sole’, which is chunks of Himalayan salt in good water for 48 hours. Then I put a small spoon of that liquid salt into my water. I like it that way now, it tastes boring without it.

He quotes many studies that show the more dairy or fortified, processed food you eat and drink, the more likely you are to have a heart attack. In fact, here’s a quote from another doctor, Jacob Teitelbaum, MD;
“Taking plain calcium for osteoporosis, or even as an antacid, can increase heart attack deaths by a whopping 31%.”

Oh, another thing he said was that taking Vitamin D AND calcium, which most docs recommend is even worse for you in terms of depositing the calcium in places that it shouldn’t be.

So I think everyone should read this book and educate their friends and family. He covers statins and other drugs and puts most health problems down to medical greed so he’s a kindred soul for me. And I’ve only read the first two chapters. If I come across any more must-have info I will update this post again so it’s all in the same place.

Much love,

Pam
