  1. How to find the lower dan tian ?

    i found this interesting, i applogise if this is a bit off topic but this reminded me of an approach to therapy that hits those points you mention here right on the head. there are actually better ways to work with those issues availsble to regular people in regression to cause hypnotherapy in the dave elman tradition. what is done is what they call an affect bridge is created. Whitch just means they , after preparing you and getting you consciously ready - they purposefully trigger and intensify the “negative” feeling responce… and “regress” ie with eyes closed follow it all the way back to the initial sensitising event. Meaning the originating point where you first felt this feeling ever and created this responce You will move back in time though the many experiences asociated with this Where each time there was addded a layer on to this, resulting in the end product what you came to “therapy” for. you will move bavk in time through the layers untill you reach the originating point. Where you meet it with a loving compassionate closed mouthed smile. the feeling is allowed to be felt untill it dissipates, and what emerges after that will be the unmet need “the child” there has, you do it mainly with holding nonjudging love as the basis, sometimes something else is needed conscious attention is brought back into what was a closed Off block, And the entire chain forwards in time evaporates, unmakes itself. the feel bridge will take you usually to the “symptom producing event” because that is where its current form was born, but that is not the beggining. That responce was born out of earlier present reactivity you follow it back to the start and address it there and the entire wound will be ubdone. no holes wil be present and the problem will not rebuid itself. Sinds the entire string of knots gets undone another process from another person. Requires feeling the feeling and and then be asked where you can sense its counterpart in your mind space, this will be some kind of representation like a dark spot or whatever it shows up as, you will then gently invite it to dissolve back into the field it was born out off, — you will get a no, rather then forcing it to collapse, you will feel into the system and be guided to some different place witt another darkspot (or however it shows up) you will get another no —- and be guided to another spot, youl get a no — and you follow your way feeling through this chain untill you get to a spot that feels more, wide a bit more open but still a contraction - you will gently invite it to return dissolve back into the whole — you will get a clear yes. Youl then follow it forwards and the darker spots will - now dissolve as well untill your back to the first one whitfh now dissolves snd the entire thread and its accompanied responce will be gone. unsurprisingly these 2 processes have helped people heal from serious diseases. just tought id share it here as it related to what you wrote. id be curious to hear how this relates to what you wrote in the quote “ Are you asking if the stagnation/coagulation happens in the body? The answer to that is - it’s usually expressed on a number of different levels - including physically in the body (for example some people will have physical tensions or adhesions that are ‘holding’ some emotional trauma)... there will be a Qi level counterpart and a shen level counterpart (and sometimes more“ If nothing else its a way that adresses some of the issues you brought up and works them in a way that creates a positive result available to regular people
  2. Teaching authentic neigong

    Yes Ive been paying attention for this reason

    yeah i didnt expect it to help with actual sleep, more Help deal help w all the inflammation from all that poor functioning and stress on my body. maybe help heal ligament tissue where needed and supply important minerals. so thats pretty on point. i was worried more that it might deplete, since my adrenals are tanking or im low on kidney chi. i was worried that might be why you traditionally dont use it during the health crisis but after its corrected. To then help rejuvenate i use it 4 days on 3 days off or 7 on then 5 off, because its probably not smart to use it without consistent spaces of breaktime. what are youre toughts on this? i think it may actually be making me tired. I think there may be a baseline energy requirement before using it. or i might be experiencing herxing reactions / detox reactions from what its doing in my body. Il see what happens when i doNt take it tomorrow

    Ive been using about a match stick tip of shilajit resin a day, What are the downsides to shilajit? In ayurveda if im correct its considered rasanyana, and is supposed to be used after all pathogen are cleared and person is healed. im not in tiptop health at all, i sleep horribly due to a condition. im trying to improvr sleep since its so crucial. And hopefully retank my energy I have been using shilajeet to hopefullyy assist in giving my body and bodily processes support to run better in this current situation, since its full of humic n fulvic acid and minerals. It should be very good or wouldnt it?
  5. Oh look, I got covid

    Best wishes And speedy recovery man! Hope youre already in the relief phase where you know the worst is behind you. quick tip thats really worth it. mega dosing vitamin c till bowel tolerance ascorbic acid its cheap, safe (water solluable) and gains you alot. its helped me through rough spots just take 1000 mg every 2 hours untill youre belly starte to rumble then leave it. if you dont get to it on that increase dosage my bowel tolerance Multiplied by 5 last time i had a fever took about 15 gram a day. Fever disappeared soon. i doubt youl hit that high though considering your health but you never know

    I definatly didnt receive the updates
  7. More than half your body is not human

    What I tought was really crazy is that neuro transmitters like serotonin get made and originate more in the gut made by bacterias so a bigger percentage gets made by bacteria then your own body produces. Them dont have the study links on hand though. i tough that was crazy
  8. Bone broth, ox tail, soups

    yeah, im planning on making it a standard part of my life, to just brew a weeks worth and take a cup on an empty stomach everyday using it medicinally / nutritionally and maybe then sometimes make some extra to make a proper soup or stew for dinner i looked around today, found 3 kilo for 12 euros, around that mark. Delivery cost is twice the price of the bones its grass fed organic packs of bones, tendons and ribs. not sure about necks and feets they didnt mention those i also saw oxtail and tongue although tongue doesnt have bones so probably isnt that much of a soup thing
  9. Bone broth, ox tail, soups

    Whats the full ingredient list? does it have any chemical additives also curious why do you call it a herb? ive been looking At a croq pot to make bone broth in. but havent been able to find a place to get organic bones to draw from. buying all the Biological chicken every Week gets very expensive, how much bone would you say is needed to get the medicinal/nourishing and gut repairing effects of bone broth?
  10. Best herbs for constipation? Currently looking at triphala

    checking thyroid to be sure, but doubt thats an issue, Together with other bloodwork, Just need to be able to stop eating at 11 and sleep well enough to do the bloodwork next morning without eating i most likely have a motility issue but i will improve it regardless water intake could be better. Whats the revommended dosage these days? activity is okish , i go for walks i most likely have a motility issue once a week wont be very helpfull i think, im lookong for a permanent solution i dont think once a week will do much for my bowells also looking at physillium husk powder though the lead found in the one i saw the lab rapport for was pretty high
  11. Hah, yeah it got real bad real quick, thats for sure, It was not fun. Dont let the backstory fool you however, A big part of this ive resolved now. Im just very bad at deciding what to exclude and include i always end up telling every detail of the story. Due to perfectionism. Its an Issue. the thing is I tought i was really dying, my entire body got tight, trouble breathing and my wrist pulse as well as jugular pulse would get fainter and weaker in sync with the rate of getting tighter - so that made it pretty scary. as soon as that got ruled out by the doctor. meaning The pulse is still there if you put the blood pressure band on and wait. Along with some extra checks with my own equipment i was able to start taking back controll. together with the ashwaganda to calm down my body enough. So the worst part is over. BUT i need to uproot it completely, im left with the artifacts of it. if i dont eradicate this pattern completely from my system it will at some point repeat itself or otherwise cause disruption. ive made the ask for a therapist, not because im such a huge fan, but because i could really use a feedback mechanism In this. its basicly has become a form of ocd so theres a protocol for unwiring it. however the waiting lists are useless whitch is why im asking advice Here Im winning, but i need it fully uprooted. -ive seen the doctor as well. what i seem to be running into now, is

    getting better, but ive had some energy and fatigue issues skin is dry recently very high, due to panic attacks before that medium because of some life stress now im gradually becoming better constipation wouldnt be due to any recent events however
  13. Good day people, i seem to have done a bit of a number on myself i seem to have developed a pretty serious case of panick attacks in a short amount of time. And would like to ask for input and advice, i need to get passed this. plz note that while this probably reads really dumb and Stupid this has been a serious debilitating issue. For 11 days at this point. The panick started when i started A while back mental processes, and visualisation processes started getting out of hand during a period of extreme mental fog, basicly i was being displaced out of my mind so automated patterns started to run themselves without me interferring or correcting it, And i started to fear that i would accidently intend unhealthy things. This is how it started. >i started to become afraid that i might affect my heart accidently >i became afraid of it >i tought i accidently affected my heart with my thinking >then i became extremely scared of my toughts to avoid doing it again >but the more you fight your toughts the more they fight back to get expressed >eventually i lost and tought it again with more severity and got a more severe responce on my heart i started to freak out in fear because i didnt have controll. I felt all kinds of sensations i couldnt keep track of it all it spiralled out of controll, couldnt breathe, entire body tight, Blurry vision Called an ambulance went to the e.r twice they decided to have me there for the night I had panick attacks through the sleeping pill in a drug spacing haze And then panick attacks in the following days staying up for 17 hours getting woken up in my sleep with panic it had quite a run of constant activating - being retriggering and building - stopping -retriggering etc a perfect way to quickly train up a big web of bad asociations well rehearsed responces, responsiveness It just kept going because it was my own thinking triggering it, it became a self enforcing loop i couldnt escape from. i was afraid that i was gonna accidently stop my heart, i ordered measuring tools whitch helped me objectvely identify big chunk of symptoms as “stress/panic responce” and not real. i found some ashwaganda calm caps that allowed me to get some foodhold back. It diminished the high alert state i couldnt escape from. During that i got to regain some bearings and notice alot of sensations were just useless sensations and reprocess since then the “0 to a 100” severe panic responces ive gotten out. but i havent won yet, its become rather ocd -im still afraid of thinking the wrong things, -theres still a chunk of involuntaryfear responces that re-triggers the whole web, that launch me into it, -im afraid if i might start thinking this to long and start believing it to strong it might actually get dangerous i had some pretty serious fright responces -i have a nervous system issue that creates all kinds of sensations and pressures that makes it harder to think things are ok So on reflecting what im afraid of. -i visualised a cut in my finger and felt pain and lasceration in my finger for an hour or so. This started the becoming afraid of my own thinking. -i seem to now be afraid of even thinking words, like heart. Or heart attack or stop your heart,, -That pressure sensation that sits on my heart erea, but isnt actually my heart. Its most likely nerve and some kind of muscle tissue but it feels inside my chest. And when it moves to my heart erea it scares the shit out of me. So im just trying to confront it, and stay with it, i start feeling sudden pressure in my chest, then the built up involuntary fear responces get triggered. And i get filled with fear. -then im afraid that if i stay with it in that fear not having controll of it believing something might happen, that something might actually happen because of that -i had my heart slow down abrubtly a couple of times only to return back to rhytm, thats what started the beginning of it, together with those strong pressure sensations on that erea I think the slowing down of the heart was most likely just caused by me feeding a fright responce into the system. Rather then then the action that was performed how do i best move forward and rid myself of this completely? thanks for your input!
  14. Best herbs for constipation? Currently looking at triphala

    Id love to, consult with a great tcm doctor, but my experiences have been pretty average im sorry to say. Not the masters of herbs and diagnosis i was hoping for. Real nice people But more a kind of painting with numbers, if this, then this... and results werent very impressive.
  15. Good day people, ive been looking at ways to deal with chronic constipation that ive had for at least 20 years. I go about every 4 days or 5, other periods maybe 3 so, thats really not good. and have been looking at organic triphala supplement. my food intake btw, lots of green veg, brown rice and some meat. the first has ingredients: 500mg: amalaki bibhitaki haritaki 500mg the other one has: amalaki bibhitaki haritaki trivrut makandika indravaruni draksha also 500 mg so my original questiom before i decided to lace this topic with extra questions: are these ingredients i can take lifelong if need be? i bought a triphala supplement from the guys over at pukka, but it had a big dosage of liqorice root in it, whitch as far as i know should not be used for long periods of time, even had a guy die from eating to much. And also lowers testosterone what do you think? toughts? other Advice and recommendations are very welcome as well WHAT IVE BEEN DOING SO FAR: -ive been taking lemon juice every morning on an empty stomach -as well as 200mg magnesium citrate -as well as vitamin c -i eat alot of green veg -eating yoghurt with oatmeal 3 times a day helped some to but i had to stop dairy and oats unfortunately Other things im considering: -Adding in physilium husk to see what it does -maybe drinking chia or flax seeds with water for extra fiber but that wont win me the race. -doing 800 mg of magnesium citrate -ive seen people report this as doing the trick, however im insure what this will do to your copper reserves over time, and your electrolytes. Im kind of new to the nutritional game -im also considering a cleanse but wouldnt know whitch to get stilll looking into it At some point ideally id like to do a juice cleanse or something that allows me to clean my colon n body FRom a life of so so eating, with very poor detoxification. n clean up my biofome -ive also heard of cascara, sagrada, to use -and researching a good probiotic but not sure how safe that is yet. And wether there are risks any and all toughts, recommendations and advice are welcomed! thanks for your time,
