The founder of Total Body Modification (TBM), Dr. Victor Frank, always had tips & tricks he would teach for different conditions in the body. In this AHA Moment, Heather shares a few of them to help increase energy and mental clarity.
When I was growing up (and yes, I’m old enough to have watched TV on a black and white set with the bunny ear antennas LOL), you could hear the cry down the hallway from my parents instructing my sisters and I to stay at least 6 feet back from the TV. This was to protect us from the radiation (or Electromagnetic Fields-EMF’s) emitted from the TV. These days, for the flat screens, I’ve heard (but can’t verify) that it is about 3 feet. I’m sure by now you have heard rumors about cell phones and associations with brain cancers etc., but are they really true and if so, what can we do about it?
Let’s look at some research:
According to the W.H.O (World Health Organization), “It is not disputed that electromagnetic fields above certain levels can trigger biological effects. Experiments with healthy volunteers indicate that short-term exposure at the levels present in the environment or in the home do not cause any apparent detrimental effects. Exposures to higher levels that might be harmful are restricted by national and international guidelines. The current debate is centered on whether long-term low level exposure can evoke biological responses and influence people’s well-being….Based on a recent in-depth review of the scientific literature, the WHO concluded that current evidence does not confirm the existence of any health consequences from exposure to low level electromagnetic fields. However, some gaps in knowledge about biological effects exist and need further research.
The NIH (National Institutes of Health) – National Cancer Institutes states, “In 2015, the European Commission Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks reviewed EMF’s in general, as well as cell phones in particular. It found that, overall, epidemiologic studies of extremely low frequency fields show an increased risk of childhood leukemia with estimated daily average exposures above 0.3 to 0.4 μT, although no mechanisms have been identified and there is no support from experimental studies that explains these findings. It also found that the epidemiologic studies on radiofrequency exposure do not show an increased risk of brain tumors or other cancers of the head and neck region, although the possibility of an association with acoustic neuroma remains open.”
What does all that mean? I highlighted and underlined what I pay attention to as I am always interested with words and how they are used. Why am I writing about this? Regardless of the studies found by the WHO and NIH, I found in my practice using Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Testing) that devices of all types weren’t testing well, which means the body would give a weak muscle response indicating that these devices were disrupting the energy field of the body. Prior to this discovery, I heard that Himalayan Salt Lamps could detoxify the air and help with EMF’s. When I opened my practice again here in Arizona in 2014, I purchased new furniture and moved into my office on a Friday. I put a Himalayan Salt Lamp in because I thought it looked nice. With salt lamps, I had heard that the light used with them warms the salt up to allow the salt to detoxify the air in the room. The light was off all weekend, the furniture smelled like new furniture chemicals, and I assumed the smell would go away in time as with all furniture. When I returned to the office on Monday morning, the smell was completely gone even with the salt lamp light off. Coincidence? I doubt it as I have never had a set of furniture stop the new furniture smell in 48 hours.
When I started to see the testing on patients, I searched for EMF protectors. I thought it might be cute to test them out. To this day, I can’t tell you if one works better than another and am definitely not an expert on them. I bought one and did Applied Kinesiology/Muscle Testing on myself to find out the number of stickers I needed on each device. I can’t say that I feel different; however, my patients report that symptoms like heart palpitations and fatigue have stopped or improved after completely removing the device or using EMF protectors with the device. Could this just be a placebo effect? Possible, but it truly doesn’t matter to me as long as someone feels better.
In these challenging times, it is so important to take care of yourself and those you love. Remote or Distance Healing is possible not only with Hypnosis and Spiritual/Metaphysical Guidance, but (believe it or not) with Applied Kinesiology/Muscle Testing.

The answer to this question seems obvious because who really wants to deal with a cold or flu, but are they really bad for you? If we look at the ads on the TV that target cold and flu remedies, it is easy to take something as natural as getting sick as an ominous sign. Let’s explore this topic a bit and look at some possible remedies.
If we think about children, they tend to get sick frequently. We even joke that they are like little germ magnets. Children need to get sick in order to build a healthy immune system. How does an athlete win the big race or game, and how does a person do well on a test or presentation without study or practice? The immune system is the same way; it needs to practice in order to stay in shape. It isn’t healthy to be sick frequently but every now and then, it is just what the doctor (or in this case practitioner) ordered. If you have ever heard someone say, “I can’t believe he has cancer, he was never sick a day in his life”, it proves the point that never getting sick may lead to more serious issues.
Ok, so now you are sick, what can you do about it? There are literally hundreds of remedies you can try ranging from homeopathic choices like Zycam, Chinese herbal medicines like Yin Chiao, to traditional remedies like Tylenol Cold and Flu. Naturopathic Physicians have many supplements and remedies they recommend like Sambuscus or Elderberry tinctures/syrups. It is important to know how each remedy is used to avoid wasting time and money or making your symptoms worse. In my practice, I use Applied Kinesiology (AK) to pinpoint whether the body is harboring a virus or bacteria and perform soft tissue corrections to get the body to fight off the offending organism. I also use AK to detoxify the body if more traditional remedies (like antibiotics) are used. It is a way to get the benefit of the antibiotic but allows the body to detox anything in the medicine that isn’t of benefit to it.
Whether you use traditional or alternative therapies, it is important to be wise. For someone who only wants to use alternative therapies, it is crucial to know when it is time to seek traditional western treatments up to and including antibiotics. There are truly times and places to use antibiotics and traditional, western remedies.

The holidays are over, and we are well into 2019, so why do I feel so, “Blah”? If you are wondering how to get the most from life after the holidays, here are some things to consider. Even if you came from a healthy family background, many people experience more stress around the holidays. So, why don’t you feel great after either a great holiday or a challenging holiday season now that it’s over?
The first thing to consider is your physical health. We are already having a big year for cold and flu viruses. Many people have gotten sick with a virus only to have it turn into a bacterial infection ranging from sinusitis, bronchitis, and even pneumonia. If you have been challenged by one of these this year and it is taking longer to resolve, it can lead to feeling less than your best.
If illnesses (or other physical conditions) have been ruled out, it is time to look at emotional causes, specifically expectations. If you were filled with the idea of what the holidays “should” have looked like and the reality didn’t live up to the expectations that are outlined in all of the Hallmark cards or movies, you can experience a post-holiday let down. I call it “shoulding” on yourself. For example, “I should have done this for the holidays,” or “I should have know better than to….”. You get the idea. For some, all of the expectations lead to a fight or flight response or surge of adrenaline. Adrenaline was designed for survival when you need to run away from or fight a bear in the wild. Unfortunately, most of us are secreting adrenaline all the time in reaction to physical or emotional stressors, so if the adrenaline stops, a feeling of “blah” or fatigue can set in.
I see this frequently when I use a technique to turn off the fight or flight response during sessions. When I turn off the response, I often hear the comment that people feel more relaxed or tired after a session followed by feeling energized later. This is the same reason why you feel tired after finally getting a great night’s sleep. The “blah” or let down is truly your body’s way of telling you that it is time to take a time out vs. finding something else to get that adrenaline rush again like caffeine, sugar, adding stressors to name a few. The best thing is to truly take care of yourself and work through the stresses of daily life by doing things that relax you and are healthy such as getting more sleep, meditation, yoga, and/or resting.
Time to drop the expectations, stop “shoulding”, and take a time out. If you have trouble with post holiday “Blahs” or turning off your adrenaline response, time to give something new a try and contact Arizona Healing Alternatives, LLC to experience your AHA vs. “Blah” moment!
