What the Heck is a Summer Cold Part2

June 30th, 2010

Western medicine offers very little that is effective
against the Cold viruses.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a summer cold, winter,
spring or fall, they just don’t know at all.

Most of the drugs only deal with symptoms of a
cold and they can actually suppress the
immune system.

If your immune system is strong, you won’t get sick .
It all has to do with your biological terrain.

When we get a fever most of us take a Tylenol or an
aspirin to lower the fever.
At the first sign of a runny nose we grab an antihistamine
and we take cough suppressants to stop a cough.
All of these symptoms are just the body’s way of
trying to heal itself, to be whole again.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

* A fever is the body’s way to burn out the virus and increase
the metabolic rate that increases the movement of the white
blood cells.

* A runny nose coats the virus with mucus and then it can
be easily taken out of the body.

* A cough is a natural reflex of getting mucus out of the

Generally Colds are a self-limited illness from which virtually
all people recover in a few days, but keep a watchful eye.
Seven to fourteen days are the maxium a cold usually last,
if you have a any dough it’s always a good idea to see a health
professional if you’re not getting better.

Enhancing your immune system is the key to health,
rather than suppressing symptoms.

?A healthy immune system is the best prevention against colds-
and nutrition is the key to a healthy immune system

• Drink, Drink and drink- plenty of water, herbal tea, and
vegetable juice

• Exercise, get fresh air, go for a walk and breath deep

• Eating lightly allows your body’s energy go toward eliminating
the virus instead of digesting your food.
Lay off sugar- Sugar depresses the immune system.

I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth and Happiness

What the Heck is a Summer Cold anyway?

June 28th, 2010

Most of us think that a cold is something that you get in the
You know those cold days- you get your feet wet, a chill goes
through your body and the next thing you know you got a
whopping cold that knocks you out for a week!

The Summer time doesn’t seem to be the cold season,
but low and behold I am seeing heards of people with summer
colds in my Holistic Practice of Acupuncture.

What the Heck is a Summer Cold anyway?
It can be just an allergy like hay fever, also known as rhinitis-
an allergy that gives you a number of unwanted symptoms,
similar to a cold
• Itchy nose, mouth, eyes, throat, skin, or any area
• Problems with smell
• Runny nose
• Sneezing
• Tearing eyes

These symptoms occur shortly after you come into contact
with the substance you are allergic to and they just don’t go
away until you get away from the allergens or you strengthen
your immune system.

The summer cold is a different creature, when we have a cold
the body goes through many changes.
A cold can come from one of many different types of viral

But remember a cold is a cleansing process to
Clear the Body of Excesses.

If you have been over drinking, overeating, and indulging to
excess, chances are you will get a cold or flu to flush out your

“A Natural Detox”.

In Chinese medicine grief and sadness is the emotion associated
with the lungs. The lungs open to the nose; this means that the lungs influence
all the sinuses, bronchial, air passageways, and the nose itself.
Colds often start when we are tired or under stress, sad or have
too much grief in our lives.

Symptoms of a Summer Cold:
· Runny nose
· Sore throat
· Watery eyes
· Headache
· Achy body
· Coughing
· Low energy
· Fever

The good news is the Summer Cold is usually gone within a week.

My Grandmother had many home brewed treatments to cure
a cold such as gargle with salt water for a sore throat.
Take 1 gram of Vitamin C every hour until you got the runs,
and suck on Zinc lozenger.
She claimed these were a sure cure for a cold.
My mother said.” When I was a child my mother would give us
a syrup consisting of a whole onion that was cooked slowly in sugar
water until it got syrupy and them she would make us drink it.”
I asked if it worked and mom said she forgot.

9 Ways To help prevent a cold:

*Wash your hands often

* Stay out of the wind

*Drink 8 to 10 ounces of clean water a day

* Avoid touching your face, especially the nose, mouth, and eye.

* Prevent the spreading of the virus by using paper cups.

* Clean doorknobs, light switches, telephones, remote controls,
and sinks.

*Use paper towels in the kitchen and bathroom for hand washing.

* Get 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night and when you have a cold take a
nap in the hottest part of the day.

• De- stress yourself, if you are stressed it weakens your immune
system and you are more likely to catch a cold

Stay tuned for part 2 of How to avoid a summer cold

I wish you the best in your Health,Wealth and Happiness

Is Your Medicine Killing You?

June 25th, 2010


Before you take any medicine, herb, homeopathic or vitamin
You can Energize it to give you the maximum healing benefit.
This can increase your healing process by at least ten fold.
How many times have you said or heard this?
This medicine is killing me.
I hate taking this stuff;
I think this is making me sicker than I was in the first place.
If I don’t take my medicine I will die.

Well wake up!

What you are saying is just like a prayer, mantra
or a negative affirmation.
You could be putting a curse into your own body and mind
and don’t even know it.
That medicine is following your instructions to the tee,
as it goes down your tubes along with it is the negative
program that you are also swollen.

You can change all of that by just taking charge
and telling your medicine where to go and what to do.

In the Buddhist doctrines it is states the importance of
the purification of the body, speech, and mind.

Our speech to others, and especially what we are saying
to our self’s is a key to your health.

Back in the eighties, I was a personal trainer and consultant
for an internationally known subliminal tape company,
Midwest Research of Michigan, producers of self help
Programs and tapes.
I am always looking for techniques and products to assist
my clients and patients in making positive changes.
Most motivational speakers and books tell us that we create
our life with our thoughts, but the truth is, we rarely”choose”
our thoughts.
Most of what we call “thoughts” are really automatic reactions
coming out of our subconscious programming.
These programs, many of which are negative, make it difficult
for us to experience the health, happiness and success we desire
and deserve.

Once the subconscious accepts a message,
new programs are created and our conscious mind learns
new responses, thoughts and behaviors as a result.
We literally talk ourselves into health or sickness mentally,
physically and emotionally.

Before you put it in your mouth imagine what you want the
medicine to do.
How do you want it to react in your body?
Give it a specific job or assignment…
Where does it need to go?
What do you want it to effect?
When do you want it to start working and for how long?

Visualize your internal healers and angles;
spirit guides what ever you believe will work as your
internal healer.

I imagine a pure white light surrounding me,
and as I gulp down the medicine,
I feel my body filling with this pure white light
moving through every pore of my body.

I then visualize the light going into every organ,
structure and muscle of my body and finally the
light shining and radiate out every pore in my skin.

I see light streaming out of my body in all directions
North, South , East , and West into the entire universe.
The energy of the medicine vibrates radiant health to all
parts of my body mind and spirit.

The most effective Blessing or Prayer will depend on your
spiritual background.

It can be as simple as- “I bless this medicine to go to the
Right organ or system to heal my body, speech and mind.”

Or a more traditional prayers or mantras that you know
or practice can be incredibly effective.

Another example “I have great faith in the healing power of my
medicine and will bring forth the blessings of The Heavenly Father
or Mother.

The medicine becomes so powerful that it can heal anything it meets.
It is so powerful that it instantly heals all disease, of the mind and body.

“Unless you change how you are, you will always have what you’ve got.”
Make some changes today for your good health

I wish you the best in your Health Wealth and Happiness

knowing when to act and when not to act=

June 23rd, 2010

It was less than a week ago when I received
this letter from a friend and mentor.
Here is what he said.
“All I want to do when I’m finished is stare at
The walls or look out the windows. Not moving.
Not doing anything.
Just looking, taking it in … and breathing.
Sit and stare straight ahead for long periods
of time …
Just sitting. Looking straight ahead.Breathing.
Doing nothing.”

It may sound like he is depressed, on drugs or
just spaced out,
But he is actually in a very high meditative
place of being. The Taoists call that state
of aware “Wu Wei”

“An action that does not involve struggle or
excessive effort”.
The concept of “effortless action” like
Qi Gong and the Internal Martial Arts.

“Wu” can be translated as without.
A better way to think of it is as a paradoxical

“The Action of non-action.”

Non doing is “what we mean by going with the
grain,rolling with the punch…”
– Alan Watts, The Watercourse Way

In China I was given the name of “Wu Di”
but when I returned to the homeland,
my spiritual master changed it from Di to Dhi.

Dr.Wu Dhi literally means,

“One who has no Enemies.”

The word “Dhi” is taken from the mantra (prayer)
to the deity that Manjushri,the Buddhist god who
stands for wisdom and knowledge,for the most
part the knowledge of linguistics and grammar.

God knows I need that.

Wu Wei means “Without action, action without action,

Effortless doing”.

The aim of Wu Wei is to achieve a state of perfect
equilibrium,or alignment with the Tao and,
as a result, obtain an irresistible form of
“soft and invisible” power.

One way to accomplish this state is to practice
the internal exercises like, Qi Gong, Nei Gong
and Shen Gong.

Students that come to me seek that stillness of
mind and internal power.

The Recharging Qi Gong Program.

builds the foundations to achieve the state of “Wu Wei”,
like getting the whole puzzle in a big box and
Qi Gong Inner circle programs shows you how
all the pieces fit together.

Now is the time to know, knowing when to act
will give you great advantages in your body,
minds and spirit.

Act Now order today

I Wish you the best in your Health, Wealth and Happiness

The Most Powerful day of the Year

June 21st, 2010

Today is the summer Solstice the longest day of the year
filled with abundant energy and lots of sunshine.
It’s in the nineties in South Florida that’s why
I start my training at 5:30 in the morning.
 It’s still cool and there was a nice breeze
coming off the ocean. Summer is about growth,
creativity, expansion and staying active.
This is a time when our bodies go through
maximum activities, so expect lots of heat
inside and out. To stay healthy this summer,
keep your priorities in maintaining your heart,
mind and spirit in top shape, which are all part
of the fire element.

If the heart is in harmony, the taste buds in our
tongue works efficiently. It’s important to have
tongue cleaning as part of your hygiene regiment,
if you aren’t doing tongue scraping start today.

You may be asking your self what’s

The Purpose of Tongue Cleaning
By removing the soft plaque from the tongue you are
removing most of the bacteria and other garbage
that are the primary source of bad breath,
hard plaque (tartar) and tooth decay.
You can pick up a tongue scraper at the health
 food store or a spoon will work just fine.

 “The supernatural forces of summer
create heat in the Heavens
and  fire on Earth;
they create the heart
and the pulse within the body…
the red color, the tongue,
and the ability to express laughter…
they create the bitter flavor,
and the emotions of
happiness and joy”.

June 21st. is when the sun reaches its highest point,
 the day with the greatest number of daylight hours
 and the shortest night of the year. Soon after,
 the days will get shorter.

In Chinese medicine, summer is associated with
the Fire element and with heat.
The heart is the fire element of the body and
if there is too much heat in the heart,
the heat will rise and eventually disrupt the mind.
To have a balanced mind, do more Yin type exercises
like the Qi Gong Yin Set found in the back of the
book of the Recharging Qi Gong Program

and the Healing Sounds, they will keep you cool all summer
and benefit the heart

When the change of the season happens, especially during
the winter and summer solstice, is an opportunity to reset
your internal clock. The summer solstice is called the
Midsummer because it’s around the middle of the growing season,
a period of abundant growth. So wake early and seek the
sun for nourishment to thrive just as the plants and trees do.

This is the perfect time to a detox program
I’m staying quiet busy these days, working writing and
training every day early morning.
If you’re in Florida join me on the beach 6:30 am on 95
and Collins on the beach.
I will also be conducting Meditation classes every Wednesday
at 7pm, at the Whole Life Health and Wellness in Aventura.
I invite you to join me. You can call for details 786-271-0325

Wishing you Health, Wealth and Happiness

Full Moon Shamanic 
”Fire Ceremony”

June 6th, 2010

The Moon was full; it was around dusk when I met up with the thirty people who gathered in the traditional healing circle in the park. The Ecuadorian Shamanic 
”Fire Ceremony was about to begun.

I have been to many of these events through out the years, but this was a first in Florida for me and the first

with a shaman from South America

I know the importance of Fire Ceremonies and no matter what tradition they come from they open a new

path way for my growth.  The purpose of this ceremony was to let go of old belief structures.

The Shaman blessed the space and welcomed in the Spirit of the sky, earth and the four directions.

We circled the fire and everyone there was getting ready for something  to happen, which would hopefully change his or her life for the better.

The Tibetan Lamas, Daoism Priests and Shamans that I studied with all use fire rituals of some kind.

In fact most native peoples, as well as the Taoist and Buddhist shamans invoke  the Fire element in there secrete rituals.

This  Fire Ceremony was no exception, the Shaman  invoke the four directions, ancestors,

the Earth energies, the universe and the spirit of the fire. This ceremony offers a cleansing of energy

field and patterns of long pending issues.

The goal is re-connecting with our true nature of pure heart-centered consciousness, each one of us  received a shamanic cleansing. This ancient ceremony promoted healing on all levels.

When  coming to the fire circle it is customary to create an offering out of a small stick. Using my breath,

blow this intention or prayer into the offering several times.

One additional offering is then placed in the fire for the Mother Earth.

Each person in the circle will blow their prayers for the planet into the offering

before it is placed into the fire.”

The four main  ritual that use  fire offerings in the Tibetan system called fire puja :

1.The Peaceful harmonizing  Fire  it  to pacify the results of the three poisons, (worry , struggle and blame) ,

or to clear away obstacles and defilements. It may also be done to avoid  difficulties and illnesses.

2.  Increasing Ritual Fire Offerings can be performed for both one’s own and other’s benefit.

To increase wealth health and happiness

3. A decrease fire can be performed to get ride of obstacles on the path or even pests like rodents,

bugs or snakes. Also  to subdue forces that is harming other sentient beings.

4. A Strong and forceful  puji fire  are performed against harmful forces. In Tibet rituals these were used

to dispel or subdue local disturbances,

All rituals no matter what system or tradition  they come from involve keeping yourself centered and

grounded at all times. I have found that Qi Gong exercises are number one in keeping you grounded

centered and focused. That’s why I encourage all of my students who are interested in spiritual work,

marshal arts or healing to learn and practice internal exercises, like the ones offered in

the Recharging Qi Gong for those of you that have the

Recharging Qi Gong Program there will be a class on June 12 th . in Miami to go over the finer  points  in the program

call 78-271-0325.

If you don’t have the program as yet go to and order today.

I wish you the best in your Health, Wealth and happiness

BP oil spill Kills Sea Turtles

June 6th, 2010

 If you get up early in the morning and make it to the beach around
4:00 or 5:00 AM you may find a special treat.

Large 300 pound sea turtles are laying their eggs.

The big mama came in just before daybreak and spent about 30 minute
 digging a hole, laying her eggs, covering them up and going back
into the sea.

The magnificent sea Turtles migrate thousands of miles,
but usually return to lay their eggs on the same beach where
 they hatched.

Sea turtles have existed for over one hundred million years

It can take 15 – 50 years before a sea turtle is capable of reproducing

Scientists estimate that only 1 in 1000 to 10,000 babies will survive
to adulthood

Sea turtles live their entire life in the ocean. The only time they come
ashore is when the female lays her eggs.

Sea turtles are reptiles. They breathe air and can hold their breath for long
 periods of time.

When its time to sleep, a loggerhead will wedge under a rock close to the
shore, or take a snooze while floating on the surface of deep water

Hatchlings weigh less than one ounce and are only two inches long.
Adults can grow over 3 feet long and weigh 200 to 300 pounds!

The nest temperature during incubation determines a sea turtle’s sex.
 Boys like it cool – Girls like it hot.

Sea turtles have great underwater vision, but are nearsighted out of the water.
Although sea turtles do not have external ears, they are capable of hearing
low frequency sounds and vibrations

Sea turtles use their strong jaws to crush a diet of crabs, shrimp, mussels,
and jelly fish.

This is to sad
I was talking to the park service lady who I call the “Turtle Lady.”
She said they lost over 200 turtles this year in shrimp nets on the
Gulf as the Shrimp boats crews were in a rush to get the shrimp in before the
 oil spill destroys them and the turtles drowned in the nets  they are air breathers.
“This oil spill is really a mess.”

The eggs will take about 3 months to mature and the little ones will scurry
 back to the sea.

One of the advantages of doing my training before the sun rises is that everything is

Really  Still

and you get to see wonderful things in nature that most of us miss as we get
those last minute Zzzzzzzz’s.

If you’re ready to build a body of steel, increase your internal power and align
yourself with the sprits of nature join me June 12th
for a one day intensive  in Miami for the

 Recharging Qi Gong  workshop call 786-271-0325 to register.

I Wish you the Best in your health, Wealth and Happiness
