Hypnosis & Physical Change:With John Suess!

One of the more challenging issues that a person can present to a hypnotist is a chronic, refractory condition like psoriasis, or ichthyosis (fish scale disease - which is supposed to be a genetic disorder) , or perhaps some other physical change like to enlarge the mammary glands (breasts) , or to just change the shape of a part of the body.

Such a request could seem to be beyond the capability of the mind even with hypnosis but all of the issues referred to above are on record as having been accomplished.

If a hypnotist is presented with a skin disorder one possible avenue for solution might involve the following.

After thoroughly hypnotizing the person and consolidating the response potential the person may be instructed to experience 'painless' sunburn of the skin and upon returning to apparent usual consciousness to retain the ability to modify the skin until the mind discovers how to cause the skin to function normally that is, without the continuance of the skin disorder. IT works!!

Hypnosis is a peculiar condition that occurs in a special relationship where critical analytic mind functions temporally shuts down and Fantasy becomes vastly more important and indistinguishable from reality. The mind becomes receptive to Fantasy as if it were actual experience and functions as if it were true.

John SUESS is a Master Hypnotist & trainer and Master Practitioner of NLP. He has been providing clinical services with hypnosis & NLP for 30 years. He has providing training in Hypnosis & Neuro Linguistic Programming for 26 years.

Most of us desire to have a satisfying and fulfilling sexual relationship. However, a great sex life is an elusive pursuit. For one thing, it depends on having an intimate partnership at all levels of our being. Sustaining a great relationship is the highest mountain to climb on this planet. It is not unusual that most people settle for far less than their ideal, but still claim to have a great sex life. What accounts for this paradox? Virtually everyone in our society, to a greater or lesser degree, has shame surrounding the subject of sex. more...

Short and Sweet: Cabbage Rejuvelac Recipe!

By Bee Wilder

A 1999 study published in the Lancet found that consumption of lacto-fermented vegetables was positvely associated with low rates of asthma, skin problems and autoimmune disorders in Swedish children attending a Wadorf school.1 One striking observation of ethnic cuisines is that rarely are meals eaten without at least one fermented food, often a drink.2 Cabbage is a vegetable that lends itself well to lacto-fermentation. It is teeming with lactobacteria. No starter is needed for making rejuvelac.

Start one morning by blending together 1-3/4 cups distilled or purified water plus 3 cups of coarsely chopped, loosely packed fresh cabbage. Start the blender at low speed and then advance the blender to high speed and blend for 30 more seconds. Pour into a jar, cover, and let stand at room temperature for 3 days. After 3 days strain off the liquid rejuvelac. The initial batch of cabbage rejuvelac takes 3 days to mature, but succeeding batches take 24 hours each. Each morning after straining off the fresh rejuvelac, blend together 1-1/2 cups of distilled or purified water plus 3 cups of coarsely ground, loosely packed fresh cabbage, for 30 seconds at high speed.

Pour it into a jar and add 1/4 cup of the fresh rejuvelac just strained off, cover, shake, and let it stand at room temperature until the next morning. Cabbage rejuvelac can also be made without using a blender. Just chop the cabbage very fine and use 2-1/2 cups replacing the 3 cups in the recipe above with the same amount of water.

Good quality rejuvelac tastes similar to a cross between carbonated water and the whey obtained when making yogurt. Bad quality rejuvelac has a much more putrid odour and taste and should not be consumed. Avoid using tap water because chlorine will interfere with the production of the bacteria. Boiling tap water for 30 minutes uncovered will remove chlorine.

Refrigerate rejuvelac if it is to be kept overnight. Discard any rejuvelac on hand 24 hours after it is poured off the cabbage.

Taking Rejuvelac - Drink each day's rejuvelac during the course of the day by taking 1/2 cup three times per day, preferably with meals.

To implant a healthy population of lactobacteria in the intestinal tract take rejuvelac for 1 to 3 months. The value of rejuvelac should not be confused with that of freeze-dried acidophilus. Rejuvelac contains live lactobacteria but freeze dried lactobacteria die in a few weeks' time.

People who have candida are very sensitive to yeast so they should make a new batch every time, but they could start 3 jars 3 days in a row so they do not run out.
