Nervous Reset The System 3. Of A
It is essential that we recognise her essential value in our life and seek to protect her gifts which are disappearing at a rapid rate. The beach road outside of Tulum, Mexico is known for its bohemian new age feel, live music, plenty of yoga, juice bars, plenty of ecologically conscious retreats and small boutique hotels — a far removed sanctuary from sprawling busy resort hotels miles away; this lush beach front is still largely surrounded by palm trees, green jungle plants, mangroves and animals.
No pressure to do anything except to enjoy the sparkling Caribbean Sea and stunning shoreline. The first night I took in some late night music therapy — feeling the reverberations of vibration soothe my tired soul. Studies confirm that peace filled green environments such as those found in nature have an impact on mental well being, reducing fears, anxiety, anger, tension and depression.
Recognizing the challenges and stressors of daily living in our western industrialized society, nature can provide the needed reset button and perhaps may just influence our own future choices and the direction — if we recognize mother nature as valuable we might be more likely to fight to preserve her own health.
Continued and frequent contact with mother nature may be a necessary contact to sustain balance — sustainable and ecological friendly practices for tourism are desperately needed.
New levels of ecological tourism are needed to prevent the destruction of the beauty which tourists flock to enjoy; currently at the cost of the plant life and animal species that call this backdrop home.
Perhaps it is a timely call for mutual healing — for both ourselves — humans suffering the consequences of our industrialized lifestyle — insomnia, hypertension, plagued by anxiety and worry.
Yet during my stay I was aware of the urgent need for more environmental conservation practices in the Yucatan Peninsula to sustain this exquisite environment. This very land which provides such great beauty and deep healing is in desperate need of saving, as large resorts and fast moving developments destroy miles of mangroves creating irreversible destruction to the fragile ecosystem of this land.
What we do to the planet we do to ourselves. It is time that we take responsibility for the state of the environment and make personal and conscious choices for its improvement.
When I awoke in the morning, and took my first morning ocean swim, I could SEE the truth of the situation! Before the local beach groomers had swept the beach to remove the proof -at night the ocean would deposit ALL that was being held in her waters — plastic, plastic, and more plastic! Bottles, containers, plastic chips, hundreds of colored plastic bits littered the beach.
Resembling little colored fish, I could imagine larger fish ingesting these plastic parts thinking they were nourishment. An example of xenoestrogens and a visual example of the impact that tiny bits of plastic can have on marine life and aquatic species. Ecotourism and the issues surrounding growing coastal urbanization is a focus as locals seek to preserve the beauty of the environment and retain the biodiversity of plant and animal species in the Yucatan.
Environmental groups are committed to protecting the local areas and fragile ecosystem and attempt to slow down or prevent the ecological problems that have already taken hold in Cancun and Playa Del Carmen.
Some of the challenges of this area:. Many showers are refreshing one tap cold ocean water rinses. Solar panels provide electricity and many hotels take steps to reuse and recycle offering filtered water refills rather than selling bottled water containers. Garabedian and you will find lots of info on his protocol and practice. He also has an associate doctor and a nurse practitioner Andrea who is very good and not quite as expensive I believe. Best wishes for coping with this painful affliction!
G can find some things to help you feel at least a bit better. I would say that my health ranges from 50 percent better on bad days to 75 percent better on good days than what I was before seeing him. Yes, Dr Garabedian is wonderful, compassionate and helped me quite a lot. Also, Dr Chung at Chung Institute is excellent. Now although I still experience whole body pain etc. I was even able to find a Walgreen compounding pharmacy which is able to bill my Medicaid insurance for it.
Have you tried a pro-biotic? Any one work with BradYates YouTube? I have pTSD startle mode response Janet. Is there a way to know what points on the ear to treat?
If you try this, can you update us on your experience? You can see it on line under ear anatomy. Not all the charts have it but some do. The concha is the little bowl-shaped area beneath the tragus. You can see a picture of this at http: I did notice though, that the study used healthy controls, rather than people with CFS. Given that CFS seems to turn everything on its head, can we necessarily presume that transcutaneous stimulation of the vagus nerve would have the same calming effects or last as long as it does for healthy people?
It will require studies on sick people. Another mention of this study said they appled electrical pulses to the tragus, the small raised flap at the front of the ear immediately in front of the ear canal. A year ago this month I had a minor gyno surgery procedure done that I was dreading. I feared the anesthesia would mess me up and hurl me into yet another painful fibro relapse. Or worse yet, that my weak immune system would pick up some nasty infection while I was at the hospital.
To my great shock and surprise, my fibro pain greatly diminished after my surgery and flareups are now few and far between. I have honestly felt better this past year than I have in the past twenty! Has anyone else had a similar thing happen to them?
What else could it have been? After all, if the reset button works on my computer, is it that far off to think it could work on me?
Maybe we all need to reboot! People with severe Complex Regional Pain Syndrome are sometimes put into a ketamine induced coma to reset their nervous systems.
It works in a significant portion of them. I actually feel better — calmer and with more energy- after dental anesthesia: I have a tens machine very inexpensive and also a Fisher Wallace Cranial Stimulator. I may be my own guinea pig and try this. Anybody think this is a really bad idea, practicing on myself?
Is not the entire ear be a useful site for accupressure work? I suspect this is something known for millennia to the Chinese. Electro-acupuncture to the ear. However a quick google also turns up this for the US http: Possibly cheaper models available and you might want to look at the cost of replacement gel pads. I wonder if self administered acupressure of the tragus will help? I will certainly give it a try. But the truly helpful intervention is beta-blockers — I would not function without them!
I wonder how much relief cardiac patients will get from the TENS machine compared to beta-blockers. I look forward to more research on ill people. So arousal but no climax will be the thing if we want to rebalance the ANS. Funny — I was stuck with some obstinate thoughts last night that made it even more impossible to sleep, so I diverted attention by stimulating myself a bit.
This program had been available for yeas now. The basic idea is the same: This is what the whole program is designed to do — and it works: The ongoing support and optional extras live, interactive web broadcasts for example are very good. Aural acupuncture is a well developed speciality. You can qualify without having any acupuncture training. There is a British professional association which regulates training standards — which are quite rigiorous- In Britain it is routinely used in the treatment of people struggling with the side effects of cancer chemotherapy to prevent nausea and for those being treated for addictions to RELAX.
Interesting that it has been used for years for this. I wrote about my own research and a chart I created further down this thread. I have absolutely no money for anything so am trying to find my own solutions.
This is for me the one million dollar guestion. A psychologist recommended an Alpha Stim device for me. It induces alpha brain waves through electrodes attached to the ear lobe. Will this also stimulate the vagus nerve?
I have seen it said that it is hypothesized that the Alpha-Stim stimulates the vagus nerve. However, the vagus nerve has very few nerve endings in the earlobe area, where the Alpha-Stim is supposed to be attached. I tried the method described in this article using the TENS mode of a multi-purpose device that I had.
The results were dramatic — far greater that those of the TENS unit. During the treatment, everything looked brighter and sharper — an effect that Dr.
Goldstein has reported his patients saying when he finds the pharmaceutical treatment for them that relieves all symptoms. Certainly, I felt fine during the treatment. I am going to continue using this treatment using the Alpha-Stim, and based on my experience and Dr. It is virtually impossible to attach the usual self adhesive pads to the small triangular ear flap. I eventually managed to cut the pads as small as possible and with the help of a plastic clothes peg, some superglue and an ear hair trim I got something that works.
You can get the same ear clips used in the study at http: However, if you can get access to an Alpha-Stim, I have found the results to be much more powerful; please see my post above.
Would love to try this, any ideas how? Please have a look at my chart for ear acupressure, link provided in a post further down. I find you being so easily offended offensive! She did find a very progressive medical dentist who recommended and installed the P-STIM device for a trial for several weeks. I found this wee video that shows how to do an ear massage on yourself — you never know, it might have similar benefits.
The tragus is the small raised flap at the front of the ear immediately in front of the ear canal, shown here: I love this article — we have some hope! Enjoyed reading all the comments as well.
I know someone that is doing HeartMath and she seems to like it. Yes I know they are stingy, but at least this is already a proven technique! Love the hope this article provides. Love the prospect that some day we might be able to just find a switch or trigger point that calms down the nervous system directly. It should be more or less correct. It appears that the Vagus nerve covers the whole inner area.
You can also get seeds with herbal properties that you attach to the points, and I will try that too one day. I also have a small acupuncture machine and have tried applying the stimuli onto the points in the ear. I think that with severe ANS dysfunction changes are subtle and long-term. Here is an related article Auricular Acupuncture and Vagal Regulation that gets quite technical but may be helpful: I have used an alpha stim for 18 years, I will try it on the tragus.
I have always fou d it helpful I also practice meditation, guided imagery and hypnosis. LDN was great for pain BUT it seemed to push me over the edge for histamine intolerance to the point of anaphalaxis a few times. I am now only using supplements , at least I have figured out these strange food reactions when for several years I could not connect the dots for reactions to cauliflower, spinach, tomatoes, eggplant, chocolate and to make it even more difficult it does not happen everytime I eat the food.
The Low Histamine Chef has a very helpful website. So many different factors involved it becomes overwhelming…… I am sure everyone can relate. I am still working on the methylation pathway but I have not fou d the best person to advise me yet and I am still searching while doing a few supplements and hydroxy B 12 and molybdenum. I have many snps, many homozygous. They explain the histamine Intolerance, DAO, gluten intolerance, anxiety and many other diagnoses throughout my life.
I am still hopeful this will all come together and improve. I have improved a great deal already, the ldn induced histamine exacerbation really set me back but watching my diet is helping alot. I also use a sleep CD throughout the night that helps me stay in a deep restful sleep.
Healing thoughts to everyone. There are other reset methods. It calls for 80 days of graduating ice baths. The PEM from the exertion required to do the ice baths kicked in about day so we kind of undid a lot of the good we did by continuing through to the 80th day.
And do a system reset. Talk about brain freeze! This is less labor-intensive than the ice baths, and a lot less painful. You start out walking in calf-deep 68degreeF water for 10 minutes increasing the time by 5 min increments; then you drop to 66degreeF for 20 min. Then you start lying down in the tub, 10 min 68, and graduate as you did for 1 You need someone to help you by adding ice as needed. Your helper also must to keep stirring the water to keep the coldest next to your skin.
By the time you reach lying down for 20 min in 66degreesF for 5 days, you should have reached the 40th day of treatment. You will also be swearing a blue streak by then! Then do the reverse of what you did the first 40 days — another 5 days of 20 min at 66, etc. Make yourself a chart, graduating the times by 5 min increments.
A few things I left out: I am also supplementing the ice pack therapy with cold water in the shower. I gradually turn the water colder at the end of my shower, until I am using straight cold water. I have the water running as low as I can, and I run it until numbness and redness set in.
