Six Senses Healing

Hello everyone,

I am announcing great news!!!  I have started a healing arts services, Six Senses Healing, to sharing what I know and what I believe in, with everyone who wants to experience a holistic approach with alternative medicine.

I was experiencing anxiety, panic attack, and depression for a few years, before and after my divorce.  Life feel like an emotional rollercoaster, and I feel lost and trapped in this chaotic, out of control ride.

To deal with the difficult time, I had try everything I could – seeing a Psychiatrist (try different type of antidepressant medicine that has different side effects such as 25 lb weight gain in one year or emotional numbness or suicidal thoughts), a counselor for three years, an acupuncturist, a chiropractor, a homeopathist, two hypnotherapists, a personal trainer, and a energy healer.

On top of that, I begin to study Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Qigong, Vibrational Sound Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Aromatherapy, and other modalities.

It is the idea that those who seek to help others are doing so because they are, in turn, helping themselves. The harmony is created when you get connected with the “Inner Self”. You let the wings of freedom to guide your life. Rumi says “The wounds are the places where light enters.”  Healers have a desire to help others because of a difficult past, enormous pain and loss, and their work serving others ultimately heals themselves.

From learning and practicing these modalities showed me a self-discovery and self-realization path, which leads to how to live authentically according to one’s essence and purpose. Our wounds teach us life lessons. They create ways for us to connect, teach and touch other’s hearts with great Attunement, Empathy, and Sympathy.  I want to provide a safe place for others who are seeking help by empowering them to heal themselves.

Besides all the helps I got from the health professionals, the biggest help I got are from friends dear to me.  Their understanding and support and accompany are the reasons that help me through the hard time and for me to get back on my feet.  Without their love and caring, I won’t be alive today.  I am grateful for everyone who has helped me along the way.  In return, I would like to help others who are going through a hard time in life whether you are going through divorce or depression, I want you to know, you are not alone.  There is nothing to feel the shame of.  You have to seek outside help.  And I am happy to share my own experiences with you, offer you support, and help you with ways I know.

親愛的讀者,

我想要告訴你們一個好消息!! 我開始提供療癒服務 – 六感療癒, 將我所學, 所知, 所相信的, 來和想體驗一個考量整體的非主流醫學.

我自己在離婚前後幾年, 經歷過焦慮, 恐慌, 憂鬱症, 那個情緒就像坐雲霄飛車一般, 我感到迷惘和被困住在這個無法控制的情況.

為了尋求康復, 我求助過精神科醫生 (吃過不同的抗憂鬱症藥, 經歷過不同的副作用), 看了三年的諮商師, 也看了中醫師, 整骨師, 自然療法師, 催眠師, 健身教練和能量師.

除此之外, 我還開始學習昆達里尼瑜珈, 打坐, 氣功, 震動聲音療法, 催眠, EFT情緒釋放技巧, 芳療和其他方式.

那些希望藉由幫助別人的人, 他們會選擇這樣做, 是因為他們相信最終會反過來幫到自己。 當你與“內心自我”聯繫時,就會產生和諧。 你讓自由的翅膀引導你的生活。 魯米說:“傷口就是光進入的地方。”治療師因為自己過去的傷痛和損失, 希望能夠透過幫助他人,反過來他們也從中得到療癒。

從學習和實踐這些方式, 提供我一條自我發現和自我實現的道路,引領著如何根據一個人的本質和目的過著真實的生活。 我們的傷口教會我們人生課程。 他們為我們創造了一種方式,通過極大的協調,同理心和同情來聯繫,教導和觸動他人的心靈。 我想為那些尋求幫助的人提供一個安全的地方,讓他們能夠自我治癒。

除了我從專業醫療人士那裡獲得的所有幫助外,我得到的最大幫助是來自親朋好友。 他們的理解,支持和陪伴是幫助我渡過難關並讓我重新站起來的原因。 沒有他們的愛和關懷,我不會活到今天。 我很感激所有幫助過我的人。 作為回報,我想幫助那些正在經歷痛苦的人,無論你是在經歷離婚還是憂鬱症,我想讓你知道,你並不孤單。 不需要感到丟臉。 你必須尋求外界的幫助。 我很樂意與你分享我自己的經驗,為你提供支持,並以我所知的方式幫助你。

Weighted Blanket

Do you have insomnia, anxiety, depression??  Besides taking antidepressant, talking to an therapist, you can also try hypnotherapy and sound therapy, doing yoga and meditation, taking supplements and herbal teas.  Moreover, the newest trend is using the weighted blanket.

Weighted blankets are usually filled with plastic pellets or glass beads to add weight, ranging from about 4 to 25 pounds. You pick the heaviness of the blanket based on your own weight.

A study from 2015 found that after 32 adults used a 30-pound blanket, 63% reported lower anxiety and 78% preferred the weighted blanket to calm down.

Weighted blankets offer deep pressure stimulation, a form of touch pressure that feels like a firm hug, a massage, or swaddling. While research on weighted blankets is sparse, deep pressure stimulation has been found to calm adults and children with anxiety, autism, and attention difficulties, researchers say.

While they’ve been gaining popularity recently, weighted blankets have been around for a few decades now in the occupational therapy field, where they’ve been used as aids for children on the autism spectrum. They’re even the basis for products such as Thundershirts, which help your pup stay calm during thunderstorms, fireworks shows or other anxiety-inducing events.

So, I was interested in give it a try myself to see if it could give me a better night sleep.

At first, I tried the My Calm Blanket since it keep popping up on my Facebook.  When they arrived, the box is kind of broken where they didn’t taped since the box is not strong/not thick enough to handle the weight. After I opened the box, inside is a simple plastic bag which is open with the blanket folded inside.  I got a bad feeling on this because the packaging feels cheap.

So I took the blanket out, get a closer look, it doesn’t seems well made.  The size is not long enough (48×72), the stitches are wider than I expected, the inner fabric is kind of thin plus the string tie distance between inner blanket and outer blanket are also wider (every 4 blocks) than I would like; therefore, it won’t stay flat, in one place when you move around.  Overall, I am NOT happy with this one so I contacted the company one day after I have received the product for a refund.

The customer told me I am responsible for the return shipping as it stated on their website.  Fine.  Then he asks me to take picture of the box and packaging.  Fine. Then he said he has forward the photos to the warehouse for investigation.  WHAT??  Investigation for what?? They said, “It’s normal for their warehouse to inspect my return and it’s true to any company that has a refund policy.”

Ok.  I understand every companies will inspect each returned item; however, they usually inspect the items when it got mailed back to their warehouse and then inspect it.  This is my first time got asked to take photos of the box and the item and email it back to them for inspection.  Something is really wrong here because it has been a week since my first email request the return and still haven’t get my return label (by the way, I need to pay for the return shipping for this 15 lb blanket).

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS “My Calm Blanket” COMPANY.

7/25 Update: I have requested a return on 6/28 and today is 7/25 and I am still waiting for a return label. Can’t believe this is a San Francisco company.

The second one I tried is Quility from Amazon.  I like this one way better.  The packaging is way more professional, the size is longer (48×78), how they sew the inner fabric’s edge is way nicer, the inner fabric is thicker or stiffer, they use bottom instead of string tie, and the distance between inner blanket and outer blanket are smaller (every two blocks) which really help to keep the blanket stay together after moving around.  The outer blanket is very soft and thick.

It does took me a few nights to get used to it and it does make me feel like a swaddle baby been held in the arm.

There are many different brands out there which I can’t try them all for a comparison.  However, just from the two brands I have tried, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Quility from Amazon.  It also got over 600 positive reviews too.

非主流的另類療法 – 順勢療法, 印度草藥, 英國花精

女友Min得知我從台灣回來後就無法睡覺, 沒有食慾, 體力差加上情緒低落到不行, 在午餐聚會那天帶了一包印度人蔘Ashwagandha Roots和Oat Straw給我, 要我分開嘗試泡茶當水喝看看, 說會有幫助. 我先試了印度人蔘, 連喝三天, 還真的讓我的情緒平穩許多, 也開始有點食慾和體力.  我後來是上網買罐裝膠囊, 每天早餐後吞二顆, 覺得很有幫助, 所以後來只要知道朋友也有情緒上或睡眠上的困擾時, 也會介紹給朋友試試.

上網查了一下印度人蔘, WebMD上是說 In Ayurvedic, Indian, and Unani medicine, ashwagandha is described as “Indian ginseng.” Ashwagandha is also used in traditional African medicine for a variety of ailments. Ashwagandha is a plant. The root and berry are used to make medicine that has a lot of uses but there isn’t enough information to judge whether it is effective for any of them.

Ashwagandha is used for arthritis, anxiety, trouble sleeping (insomnia), tumors, tuberculosis, asthma, a skin condition marked by white patchiness (leukoderma), bronchitis, backache, fibromyalgia, menstrual problems, hiccups, and chronic liver disease.

Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress, and as a general tonic. Some people also use ashwagandha for improving thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging. It is also used for fertility problems in men and women and also to increase sexual desire.

Ashwagandha contains chemicals that might help calm the brain, reduce swelling (inflammation), lower blood pressure, and alter the immune system.

Ashwagandha is applied to the skin for treating wounds, backache, and one-sided paralysis (hemiplegia).

我覺得超神奇的, 才知道Min在過去一年多的身體也欠安, 開始進行她自己在非主流療法上的研究, 她後來使用Homeopathy (順勢療法) , 覺得很有幫助, 所以也推薦我去看.

我上網查了之後才知道這療法很受歐洲人的歡迎.

順勢療法Homeopathy)為一種替代療法,是1796年由山姆·赫尼曼按其以同治同理論所創。順勢醫學包含兩項相當有系統性的方法,一為毒物學,另一為病案整理。前者即在尋找一種天然藥物並在小劑量的使用下,能產生與病人相似之包括身體、精神、和情緒的症狀。後者即是透過醫生耐心的溝通並探討出病人病發過程中所經驗之包括身體、精神、和情緒等之全部症狀。因此,傳統的順勢療法植基於下列三個主要原則:

一, 相似法則:一種病,能用一種可在健康人身上誘導出與那些病人相似症狀的藥物治癒。因此,醫生就必須很耐心且很有技巧地對病人做一冗長的問診,以釐清病人發病之症狀及前後次序,然後醫生方能決定何種藥物最能匹配該病人和對症下藥。

二, 專一性藥物法則:對病人最佳的處方,應根據個別差異,包括病人之全部症狀之本質(包括精神、情緒和身體等)及病人對該藥物反應而決定。

三,最小劑量法則:行順勢療法的醫生使用最小劑量的藥物,以幾乎測不到為原則,並觀察藥物所能產生的藥效。發現順勢療法用藥物可在連續稀釋後,只要在其間搖晃即可增強其藥效。一般藥物是使用30至200倍稀少劑量。由此觀之,順勢醫學不在治療一個症狀或是一種疾病,它是將病人予以”整體”(包括精神、情緒、和身體等)的考慮,並且要充分的了解病人之背景、遺傳病史、外表氣質、和易感因子等,經綜合判斷,然後再給予最適宜的藥物治療,因此順勢醫學又被稱之為”完全醫學(全方位、整體)”,而順勢法則被稱之為”整體療法”。

印度政府認可順勢療法為國家醫藥系統; 於印度施順勢療法者,須有相關認可學位,並且於邦內順勢中央登記處作登記,印度在政府開設的醫療院所會和把順勢療劑和西藥一起開給病人。

在荷蘭有40%的全科醫師會開順勢療法的處方,在英國有42%的全科醫生會轉診病人給順勢療法的醫生。在法國(1965年),美國(1938年),比利時(1999年),保加利亞(2005年),德國(1978年),匈牙利(1997年),拉托維亞(1997年),葡萄牙(2003年),羅馬尼亞(1981年),斯洛維尼亞(2007年)和英國(1950年)等國的法律已認可順勢療法是一個獨特的醫療方式。

儘管遭科學界否定,但順勢療法卻在歐洲廣受人民使用。60%的德國人、49%的比利時人、40%的法國人、8.2%的瑞士人曾使用順勢療法。顺势療法亦是法國、英國、丹麥、盧森堡、比利時和瑞士等國列入國家健保給付的一種治療方式。據世界衛生組織統計,國民生產總值高於一萬五千美元的國家中,此為最受歡迎的替代醫學療法(針灸緊隨其後,位列第二),歐盟及美國在法規上列為藥物管理,屬政府認可的替代醫療的一環。

Min介紹我去看她的順勢療法師 Meenakshi Bhargava, 首次問診大概花了一個半小時, 問身體上, 情緒上, 飲食上, 作息上的各項問題, 還要釐清先後順序, 對生活造成的影響, 事件造成的感受, 等等. 跟一般西醫, 甚至中醫都不太一樣. 後來給了我二小瓶, 二種不同大小的白色小糖球, 吃法不一, 每次把糖球含在舌下, 15分鐘內不喝水, 希望藥效能在身體裡面久一點, 首次看診給二週份的藥, 然後複診, 醫生會問你的狀況, 看藥物有沒有效 (這次回診免費), 如果無效, 就換藥, 如果有效就再給你四週或更久一點的藥.

我覺得順勢療法很特別, 因為我完全不知道是怎麼運作的, 因為跟西醫或中醫不同, 但是實際上的確改善了許多我原本有的困擾, 而且沒有西醫的副作用, 身體上完全沒負擔的感覺.  我覺得美國醫療保險跟西藥的連結太深, 不像歐洲國家對非主流的醫療的態度來的開放, 這是人民的損失啊.

另一位女友Vivian則介紹我用英國花精, 台灣有出幾本相關的書籍, 我自己沒用過, 但後來知道我台灣的一些朋友有用過也覺得有效, 我因為目前以順勢療法的小糖球為主, 就暫時沒有試英國花精(Amazon上有賣), 但還是和大家分享.

單純希望大家都身體健康, 可能是年紀漸長, 加上這幾年經歷過一些人生上的重大事件, 讓我重新看待自己在生活上的一切, 到底哪些才是最重要的東西.  而健康, 真的很重要, 大家要多照顧自己的身體啊!
