The Scaling, Red, Swollen, Burning and Itching Skin On My Foot

Guilty as charged...

The other day, I ate a large grapefruit after not yet digesting my previous meal.  

I can't say that I had the grapefruit all at once.  However, my stomach protested, by bloating.
It was around 5:30 pm.  Later on that night, obviously not paying enough attention to my stomach, I ate other things, without first fixing my stomach.

I like to eat - I admit.  However, my body is teaching me that I can't eat just because I like something.

It wouldn't be so bad, if I just went to sleep, which I did.  However, my husband was coming home late that night.  So I got up, and ate a little more!

I got punished big time this time: my foot swell, got red, the skin started peeling, and hurting.  This is when I  started taking care of myself...

In a spoon of water mixed with goat milk, I first took Slique Essence to balance the blood sugar, then Fennel for digestion, and lastly, Tea Tree for Candida control.  I also applied tea tree on my foot.  Additionally, I took Purification internally, and put Myrrh on my poor foot.  I also put some Lavender on my foot as it started itching a little.

I went to bed.  But then, my friend called me, and I felt a headache coming.  I knew, I had to take Longevity.  However, I didn't think I could swallow it.  Unfortunately, it did not occur to me that I could have taken it in drops instead of capsules.

The next morning the headache got worse - my forehead hurt.  So I applied Lavender on my forehead, temples, and behind my neck.  I also had a nose bleed - from the nose walls.  So I applied Lavender inside too.

I had enough energy now to take care of myself.

So I first drank cabbage rejuvelac (glad I had it!).  Sometime later, I had my kefir.  Went outside to get fresh air.  I went for a short walk, and did a headstand at the playground.

When I came back, I took 2 packets of NingXia Nitro - my favorite!  It always gives me energy, and fixes my stomach.   And, as always, it worked so well this time again.  I also took 2 capsules of Longevity and Inner Defense each, and put a drop of Endoflex on my thymus.  Now, feeling so well, I took Pepper for a nice walk in the Arboretum!

When we came back, I laid in the grass, in the back of our house, with Pepper right next to me.  It felt great to recover!!!

Before I went to NY, I made myself celery and cucumber juice, and took Dulse, cucumber and a few small tomatoes with me to munch on.  

When I got back, I just had some avocado with my green garlic and parsley - yummy!  

Is my foot good tonight?  Not yet.  However, I am being a good girl.  I have to address the skin on my foot.  I will apply cabbage rejuvelac first, and then a rich cream with the therapeutic grade essential oils (Frankincense, etc.), Boswellia Wrinkle Cream.  Hate to spend money on myself...  But..

Now, let my body do some work...  I will only have more kefir soon (I already drank more cabbage rejuvelac before applying it to my foot.  Rejuvelac hurt my foot, but I don't care - I needed it).

Let's see what happens tomorrow.

Wow - the cream feels so good!  I don't feel any pain, and the foot feels live and soft.  I should use it on my face and arms!!!  I will too!   So good to feel good!!!

No sweets today - not even an orange, berries, and of course, bananas...  

It feels good that the short button does not press on my stomach!  My body will remember what's good for it!  

I am so proud of myself!  Didn't eat late last night!  My stomach is so much smaller already!
I woke up in pain last night, and had to apply more cream.  This morning my foot looks amazingly so much better!!!  It does not hurt, I can flex my big toe without much pain, as the skin is so much better!  I will continue with the cream and other good things.  Already had my kefir.

 Took my dog Pepper for a long walk.  Sipping on warm water with cayenne pepper and lime - I felt like it.  Even holding the warm glass with both hands felt so good!

The reason why I like to use the Boswellia Wrinkle Cream is because many therapeutic grade  essential oils are already diluted in proper ratio.  
Essential oils are concentrated.  Some are hot, and therefore plants isolate them to separate pouches.  

Time to re-apply the Boswellia Wrinkle Cream - I feel some pain and itch. 

Too bad, I did not finish writing this post.

Maybe, it's a good thing, because my philosophy about treating myself changed.  Since then, I try to address the issues in my body from an emotional point of view, and internally.  Not as much externally.

Why?  Because I want to make sure I solve the issue inside, i.e. clean my blood, liver, control the Candida overgrowth, pay more attention to my body, and so on.

My foot is fine now, btw.

To Health and Joy!

What's With That Migraine?

Dear friends,

As promised, here is what I did right and wrong for my migraine.  And in-depth 
analysis  on why and how I got better. 

Before I get into a deeper discussion, I just want to briefly state that migraine headaches are caused by many different factors like stress, being tired, not getting enough quality sleep, nutritional, alignment problems, hormonal, digestive, etc., and therefore should be handled differently. 

For example, for my husband, it is all of the above, lol.  For me - I guess, the most prevalent factor is my emotions.  Actually, it's for everyone, and you will see why as I explain in detail.

So here is my latest occurrence and analysis, as this might help you better deal with yours.

I always feel other people, or am very sympathetic to when they are going through difficult times.  So as I was walking Pepper in the morning on Saturday, I started feeling a strong pain not far from my heart.  I pressed here and there, but it felt like a nerve signal.  My thoughts immediately directed me that I had to call someone I knew was going through tough times.  And I'm glad I did.

Right before I went to visit my new friend, I felt a hint of pain in my scalp.  So I thought, when I get back, I'll take my NingXia Nitro. 

I went for a visit, to use my therapeutic grade essential oils on her dog, and to lighten up her day.  The dog got so comfy after I applied just 3 drops on her - 1 on her liver, and 2 on her neck lymph nodes, that she fell asleep.  Meanwhile, we talked a lot about ourselves, sharing our stories, and smelling essential oils. 

As I got home, my scalp hurt a little more, so I put some Lavender, felt better, ate delicious green salad with avocado, brought blueberries with kefir in the bath, took my bath, and ...  fell asleep for about 3 hours in the tub, periodically refilling it with hot water.

When I woke up, I didn't feel so good - my colon wanted to empty (not painfully), and my head hurt, which I thought was my sinus or a lack of sleep the night before.   So I applied the therapeutic grade essential oils blend for sinus support, and went to sleep, even though I did not completely take care of myself (that was a big mistake!).

Hours later, I woke up with a pain - I couldn't move my head.  This is when I knew, I had to get up and take care of myself.   Many years ago, I used to suffer, but now I know how to feel better almost right away.  Yes, using therapeutic grade essential oils.  I also like to use acupressure, and my body always tells me where to press.  However, this time, since I am taking a class on Jin Shin Do acupressure, I got confused, thinking that it would be good to check the notes.  BUT NOT WHEN YOU CAN'T!

Don't worry, I still helped myself.  I applied a blend with Peppermint and another one with Lavender and Valerian on my forehead and temples, forgetting the back of my neck.  (You see, my neck was stiff, as I lowered my head down, but I still didn't do the basic stuff I do for my husband ALL THE TIME!).  Then I knew, I had to drink some.  I looked for therapeutic grade essential oil of Peppermint, but instead, I found citrus blend and basil.  Not so bad, I decided, and drank some.  Then I found my Peppermint, ahhhhhhhhh.  That felt sooooooo good...  In the past, I also used to add organic raw apple cider vinegar, and maybe lemon.  But this time, I didn't feel like it.

Went back to bed.  Before I got up again, I checked a few pressure points on me, and thought why I got so bad.  There!  I realized that our discussion stirred up some old buried emotions in me.  But which ones? 

I went in the kitchen and took 2 tubes of NingXia Nitro.  I knew, I will be feeling much better very soon.  However, I didn't stop there.  I also drank my Peppermint eo with water, then added some Fennel, as reminded by my husband (!).  I smelled the blend with vanilla(!) and lavender.  A little later, I had my rosehips tea with lemon, a little later  chamomile/lavender tea with milk.  I was feeling really good, but not 100% yet.

I checked my books - and yes, it said, which is completely true, that  I've been critical of myself. 

Then it struck me - I should have used Release on my scalp to release my buried guilt for not preventing my friend's suicide about 23 years ago!.  For someone, who was sheltered by her brother from the whole world growing up, I got a huge share of life's serious situations as an adult.

Every time, there is a physical pain, your body is opening up "a can of worms" for you to release.  If you don't do it yourself, your body will let you know by either some pain or other physical imbalance. 

Well - that was it!  The minute I put Release on my still somewhat painful spots on my scalp, it all went away!  I smiled, relieved! 

My appetite returned, and I enjoyed my breakfast of different soaked nuts with honey, etc. 
We went for a 2 1/2 hr.  walk, then I shoveled  - all back to normal!

This reminds me of the time I had a toothache years ago.  I was away, and tried all the oils I had - surprisingly, nothing was helping... until I figured out what was bugging me (actually, I knew it all alone, just didn't think my teeth would hurt).  Anyway, 1 drop of therapeutic grade essential oils blend to calm me down did the trick!

I do not always remember to address my emotions.  And usually, taking NingXia Nitro to support my digestion,  a drop of Peppermint in water, rubbing the blends on my head - and I am done.   However, I know that behind every physical imbalance, there is a triggering emotions.  And that's what you need to deal with!

Stay well and be joyful!  It is all in our attitude...

With love,

Spring cleaning again

Spring - new beginnings...

In terms of common knowledge, as it gets warmer outside, we get more energy for our bodies, cells expending, toxins released.  

Let's not label this allergies, sinus, cold, etc.  Instead, let's just cleanse colon, lymph, liver, kidneys, etc. to improve our immune system and help our body get rejuvenated!

Many religions do fasting this time, Chinese medicine suggests cleansing colon.  Remember, for an easy fast, it is always a good idea to cleanse your colon beforehand.

Do  your best!  Doing anything is better than doing nothing!

Here are "some" suggestions:

Any questions, comments?

Ready, set, GOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Love always,

When do you eat coconut butter?


We've become so conditioned and brainwashed by nutritionists, scientists, and doctors (there is one for every body organ and labeled health condition) that we lost our natural ability to use intuition and even common sense.

Watch animals - they know when and what to drink, and when to sleep.  When they get sick, they know what herbs to eat and where to find them.  Same goes for young children: notice how very young children are in tune with their body and mind; they know what to eat, when to sleep, and what they feel.  Unfortunately, we quickly ruin this by  feeding them processed food, which they don't like initially, and stuffing their brains with processed thoughts.  Before you know it, they become like us, robots.  

Our environment reminds me of a movie I saw ages ago.  I think it was Solaris, directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, which depicts a few people completely isolated from the rest of the world, listening to the sound of the artificial tree leaves, and eating powdered food, etc.  I watched this movie only about 25 years ago.  How perceptive the author was back then!

It always amazes  me to see so many people convinced that a powder in a capsule does more (or anything, as a matter of fact) for their health than say a fresh apple, an orange or garlic.  My son took so many expensive supplements of supposedly highest quality in hopes of getting well,  only to get disillusioned.   

Food industry abuses our sense of smell and lures us into eating what is not good for us.  We empty the shelves of supermarkets, buying bottles of so-called juices colored with chemicals, and dried over-processed cardboard food, flavored with synthetic cancer-causing colors, flavors and preservatives, in packages made of harmful foil and plastic.

An old Russian fable comes to mind, in which a man promises to make the most delicious soup from an ax.  He starts off by putting an ax in boiling water, and adding carrots, onions, etc...  I would readily trade his soup for any commercial food product.

Many people take prescription medications, which are so toxic, they need to be recycled.  Why then do people take them?  I don't even mention radiation and chemo, which poison and destroy our immune system.  (Unfortunately, I thought otherwise years ago and hoped that undergoing these barbaric "therapies"  would save my parents.)

Cell phones, computers, microwaves - there is no end to insults to our health.

Do we really need to look for clues and cures for fixing our health, like "a war on cancer", for example?  

I have been trying to help someone I just met, who has the "inflamed tongue syndrome", and learnt  that 33% of people in the USA have this "unexplained" syndrome.  Same as the claims for Asthma,  "a non-curable disease", which has "unknown causes"...  What a myth!!!!!!

What is an inflamed tongue syndrome?  Why label everything a riddle without an answer?
Why put fears in our minds?  Why make us brainless victims of a money-making pharmaceutical machine?

Taking a pill and making your body not use all the incredible powers it has is not a solution, but instead sinking into more problems and developing new health imbalances, and physical and mental addiction to medication.

If you carefully look at the side-effects (what a mild way to call poisons), medications, while stopping the body reaction (literally stuffing and shutting our poor cells), create inflammation, acid, and mess up our immune system.     

We go to doctors to solve our health problems.  But how can a stranger help you by seeing you for 5 minutes, when you are there 24X7 and know yourself better?  And what about the fact that doctors are being pushed and bribed by pharmaceutical and insurance companies to sell and over-prescribe medications?  And how many of these doctors really care about you, or even have time to think about your problems?  YOU, YOU YOURSELF HAVE TO HELP YOURSELF! 

How quickly we forget high school Biology lessons of our body rejuvenating itself! 

Ann Wigmore,  the founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute in Boston, who was presented with a Regeneration of Human Cells and Tissues in 1971, wrote a book Be Your Own Healer.
She healed herself of cancer, and healed so many others.  And that is only one example of numerous other people, who cure themselves.  

If you listen to your body, it will tell you what to do.

Back to my new acquaintance    Her Candida started dictating her life.  Her tongue would burn and get swollen to the point that she could not hold a conversation.  It is interesting to note, that unfortunately, many times I pick up the problem my friends are having.  This time was no exception.  My tongue started burning.  After analyzing what caused my problem, I realized that I overate, and my PH shifted to acidic.  Additionally, my friend, Candida, went on an eating spree.

None of these were hard for me to fix.  In fact, in one day I was fine.  What helped my tongue inflammation the most was Myrrh, and, of course, therapeutic grade tea tree essential oils.  

For my new acquaintance, chewing on a Frankincense resin gum with therapeutic grade essential oils of Ocotea and other oils, relieved  her symptoms.  Tea tree on her tongue helped her fight Candida and stopped inflammation immediately.  She also put Purification on the soles of her feet, JuvaFlex on her liver, and had to use essential oils to keep getting better. In other words, she had to cleanse her body, address her emotions, and take a few other oils to keep Candida under control.  Staying well is not taking a one-day cure, but trying to balance your body and mind every day.  The last I heard she was doing great by using just one blend, Slique Essence.

When I suggested to my new acquaintance to eat Coconut butter and use raw organic apple cider vinegar, she asked me, when and how much.  I had to explain to her that we are all different and feel differently at different times.  You have to listen to your body, and it will tell you.

There are times I crave for food, which is not so good for me.  Feeling what my body tells me,  I learn, trying to change, and balance it back to feeling well again.

I am not perfect, but I am learning to be better.

So my only advice to you:  don't manage  disease with medications.  Help yourselves before it gets too hard to.  Remember that medications block cell receptor sites, disrupt your body's balance (steroids), and destroy your flora and immune system (antibiotics).   Disease is imbalance, emotional, spiritual and physical.

And minimize the use of commercial products for your body and nutrition.  

If you need some help to make a change, please let me know.  I will help you.

Here is another post you might like:

This paragraph from Kurt Schnaubelt’s book Advanced Aromatherapy: The science of essential oil therapy resonates so much with me that I felt compelled to type it:

“Betrayed and helpless, we are at the mercy of the powers that be when all of life’s needs are provided by one single source.  We sense the cynicism, but see the truth only reluctantly in a vain attempt to protect our worldview from grim reality.  In fact, cynicism is even more pervasive than generally feared.  Not only do big financial institutions own share in fragrance and food companies, they also hold interest in firms producing pesticides linked to causing breast cancer and at the same time rake in profits from medications used to treat it.  The scientific and economic necessities are staggering and diversity has been all but eliminated so as not to get in the way of business.  More and more, our lives are determined by the one-dimensionality of synthetic chemical products.”

And one more.

“This massive processing and standardization of our foods should alarm consumers, not the least because these “new” and “wonderful” synthetic fragrances and additives are not substances to which the human body has been acclimated to over a long period of evolution.  Many of these new substances are completely synthetic and like antibiotics and pesticides, contribute to overloading our system with chemicals that heavily tax our organs of metabolism and elimination.  The body responds to the chemical overload by inventing “civilization diseases” such as neurodermatitis or CFS.”

Solar Plexus Involves Every Organ In The Abdomen (солнечное сплетение)

from The  Compete System Of Self-Healing Internal Exercises by Dr. Stephen T. Chang:

"Responsibility for maintaining and balancing internal organ functions lies in the abdominal brain. 

To the Taoist, the excitement is related to the heart; anger, liver; worry, spleen-pancreas; sorrow, lungs, and fear, kidney. 

When the solar plexus is healthy, organs can immediately recover from stress and tension and resume proper functioning.  It is when its balance is lost that the following problems arise: insomnia, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, heart weakness, heart attach, stroke, chronic bronchitis, duodenal infection, ulcer, gastroenteritis, gastritis, constipation, diarrhea, lack of absorption (small intestine), nenstruational cramps and related problems, impotence, etc.

In suppressing our feelings, we suppress the solar plexus from functioning.  "

Here is the correct way to do the Tao internal organs exercise for the solar plexus:

Spinal Alignment - Neck Exercises


Many of you have probably heard about this cruel way, forgive me for being too graphic, some people kill a chicken, by holding it by its head and spinning the unfortunate bird. 

The reason it works is because our brain is connected to the rest of the body right in that location.  In anatomy, it is called medulla oblongata

Unfortunately, many people do not have a good posture, and often right in their neck, or upper spine.  This is where vagus nerve is located, which has 13 branches connecting to vital organs such as heart, lungs, stomach, liver, large and small intestines, kidneys, liver, spleen, esophagus, and larynx.

To maintain the correct neck posture, I like to do the Tao turtle exercise daily. 

I have included below the instructions for you, from The  Compete System Of Self-Healing Internal Exercises by Dr. Stephen T. Chang.

Enjoy and stay well!

Do you recognize your pH symptoms?

This is an old post from my private web site, I copied over here.  The links will not work.

Friday, February 22, 2013

Do you recognize your pH symptoms?

Class, class!  Are YOU LISTENING?

We are made of trillions of live cells, which all need to be nourished,  bathed, oxygenated and protected.  

If  your digestion does not work, it means you abused your little guys.  

Have respect for your body!  Stop feeding it low quality processed dead food.  Or if you do, don't complain that you're not well.   People take better care of their cars, buying unleaded gas, oiling, washing - and they always find time for it.  Why?  Because they find it important.

Anyway, I am not yelling, I am just frustrated, hearing people complain, but not making any changes to get better.

Digestion has a key importance, because you need to  assimilate the food you eat.  If you never cleanse your colon, it changes its shape, and over time, its walls get covered with a substance as hard as a plaster (as per Dr. Norman Walker ).  You need Drano!  Recognize that  when your body hurts, you are the one who hurt it.  So don't make the pain go away with meds - help your body, heal it, don't abuse it!

Sorry for yelling - I get upset when people get sick.  Let's get to pH by David Stewart's Chemistry of Essential Oils made Simple.

   " If pH is too high, we can develop a chemical state called alkalosis.  Symptoms .. include sore muscles, creaking joints, bone spurs, protruding eyes, drowsiness, seizures, edema, night cramps, asthma, chronic indigestion, itching skin, and hard dry stools.  People suffering from alkalosis are highly nervous, prone to hyperventilation, and can go into convulsion.

    If pH is too low, we can develop a chemical state called acidosis.  Symptoms include frequent sighing, insomnia, water retention, recessed eyes, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine headaches, low blood pressure, foul-smelling stools accompanied by a burning sensation in the anus, difficulty swallowing, alternating constipation and diarrhea, and sensitivity of teeth to vinegar and acid fruits.

    Our body regulates blood pH three ways:

(1) By our diets,

(2) By our respiration,, and 

(3) Through our kidneys


  • Breathing lowers blood acidity.  Shallow breathing or holding one's breath raises it.  When one's air supply is cut off, acidosis sets in.  Excess breathing (i.e. hyperventilation), on the other hand, leads to blood pH levels that are too high. (i.e. alkalosis)  This is where aerobic exercises can help.

(breathing with your stomach, walking)

  • Kidneys are designed to selectively secrete more acid than alkaline, but can go the other way if nenessary.
  • Bacteria, yeast, and fungi love an acid environment.  They can grow uncontrollably in our bodies when our blood pH is too low...
  • Acid forming foods include alcohol, coffee, eggs, meat, fish, mustard, catsup, flour products, soft drinks, pasta, pepper, cheese, butter, ice cream, and sauerkraut.

  • Excess of protein can result in urine of such high acidity as to damage the kidneys.  To prevent this, our bodies dump ammonia into urine to raise its pH in to safe alkaline levels above 7.0.  High levels of ammonia in the urine is not a good sign.  (note that PH changes depending on when you ate)

Applying pH to Essential Oils

    One of the benefits of incorporating essential oils into one's daily life is that they increase the alkalinity of the body, not because oils are alkaline, but because of how they respond to acids.

    When a therapeutic grade oil enters the body, its molecules willingly sacrifice themsleves to the acid, engulfing and neutralizing the H-ions... Even though essential oils are neither alkaline nor acid ... their effect upon a person ... is to alkalize their bodies...

    Many people with unhealthy acid conditions in their systems will respond negatively to the scent of essential oils, because the oils have stirred up toxins which need to be eliminated.  Detoxification is not always a pleasant experience, but a necessary one ...

Please read this post for suggestions about nutrition.  Also, it is important that you read the following post as well

So, how do you improve your pH?

         You can take a bath and add therapeutic grade essential oils and raw apple cider vinegar to water, or a rinse, or apply straight to the skin.

     Add 1 drop of raw apple cider vinegar to your drink, salad, etc.  You can also take more than a drop and make an apple cider drink, by adding a sweetener.  Adding therapeutic grade essential oils to your drink will add cleansing,balancing and healing benefits. 

    A simple and delicious drink to quickly change your PH (but not permanently, unless you take care of yourself) is to take 1 drop of more of your favorite therapeutic grade essential oil in water.

Remember that PH is just an indicator of your body/blood, etc. acidity.  Either being too alcaline or too acidic is not good for you.  I love fresh fruit and veggies, and fresh-made juices - planty of good and delicious PH.  On the other hand, proteins are acidic and require acidic digestive juices.
Should you be experiencing pain, especially in your stomach, I don't think you would want more acid there.  In fact, you would want only healing substances in there.

Be well!
