Pick one of these three options:
1. I want to die from heart disease.
2. I want to die from cancer.
3. I want to die in the arms of my beloved after great sex and a long life.
If you picked No. 3, the odds are overwhelmingly stacked against you. We are in the grip of a conspiracy spearheaded by food companies, pharmaceutical concerns and a medical establishment determined to ensnare you from cradle to grave. But did you know that people in the Amazon or rural China do not die from cancer or heart disease? Often, they die peacefully in bed.
Illness is seen by the shaman as an imbalance in a natural harmony that occurs when we’re disconnected from the invisible side of nature and have forgotten its existence. … Shamanic medicine works by upgrading the quality of the information of the luminous energy field (LEF) that instructs your molecules, cells and genes.
The LEF is the software that informs DNA, through the hardware, which is the brain and nervous system. The shaman understands that we are flesh and blood as well as the energy field that infuses the physical body, guiding its growth and repair. The mind-body connection we have been talking about in the West was never forgotten by indigenous people, who understood that emotions, thoughts, the environment and the invisible world affect our LEF, thus influence what is happening in our bodies. The way to heal the body is by upgrading the quality of the LEF. Then the body can stop manifesting disease and start creating health.
The first task is to repair your hippocampus with Omega-3 rich foods and supplements. Then you need to eliminate gluten and dairy from your diet, at least for a month to allow your immune system the opportunity to reset. If you are going through a healing process, you need to be off all grains. This will reduce the inflammation in your body and turn on the genes responsible for longevity and health. Next you need to detox, from the very inside of your cells. Then you have to repair and strengthen your mitochondria, the fuel factories and feminine life force inside every neuron and cell in the body. At that point, you will be primed to experience shamanic ecstasy and create exceptional health.
