Hi; and Welcome.

 I'm Sherry, and I'm an independent distributor of Young Living Essential Oils. I was first introduced to essential oils shortly after my husband suffered a back injury.   I was told about the use of the oils to help relieve the pain and  help prevent scar tissue after his surgery.  One day when I was on the phone with the person  telling me about the oils, my daughter was coughing violently.  I explained that she was born with the R.S.V. virus,  I quickly learned how the oils could help her.   I was hooked.   I started to learn all I could about the oils.  I became a distributor continuing  to learn all I could about the oils and started doing Raindrop Therapies.  Oils are now a part of our everyday life and I want to share them with everyone, even my husband and daughter talk about them.  I also offer other healthy products such as Organo Gold, Arbonne and Amway.  For more information on these wonderful products click on the links to the left. 

Thank You ,Sherry

 What is Reflexology?

 
Interested in a gentle, non-invasive treatment to complement your current medical care?

Welcome to the very “hands-on” practice of reflexology. Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure by thumbs and fingers to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears in order to improve the recipient’s health.

Reflexologists understand that these areas and reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the organs and person’s general health. For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder point. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it affects bladder functioning.

Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS, and sinusitis.

Reflexology is growing increasingly popular as both as a complement to other treatments and as preventive measure across Europe and Asia. One example is Denmark, where various municipalities and companies have employed reflexologists since the early 90’s.

According to several studies, this practice in Denmark has resulted in reduced sick leave and absenteeism (and significant economic savings for the employers). Employees have consistently reported complete or partial improvement in conditions where they sought reflexologists’ help and even relief for additional problems related to stress. In one municipal district, almost one-third of the employees reported greater satisfaction with their jobs after completing six sessions with a reflexologist.

Where are the reflexology points and areas?

In reflexology, points and areas on the feet, hands, and ears correspond to specific organs, bones and body systems. Practitioners access these points on the feet and hands (bottom, sides, and top) and the ear (both inside as far as the finger can reach and outside) to affect organs and systems throughout the entire body.

Maps of reflex points have been passed between practitioners across the globe. Understandably, there is not agreement among all reflexologists on all points; however, general agreement does exist on major reflex points. Some scientific documentation of linkages between the skin and internal organs also exists.

To represent how the body systems correspond to one another, reflexologists use reflexology “maps.” A good example of a reflexology map exists for the feet. Each foot represents a vertical half of the body:

  • The left foot corresponds to the left side of the body and all organs, valves, etc. found there.
  • The right foot corresponds to the right side of the body and all organs found there. For example, the liver is on the right side of the body, and therefore the corresponding reflex area is on the right foot.

The illustration to the right shows a reflexology map for the feet. For a map of the hands, see www.reflexology-research.com

A reflexologist may perform a general, integrated session; or may focus on specific problem areas on the feet, hands or ears. For example, if time is limited and the person really needs to relax, the reflexologist may choose just to work on the ears.

Whatever the approach, the reflexologist attempts to release congestion or stress in the nervous system and balance the body’s energy.

How does reflexology relate to other therapies?

Acupuncture and Acupressure: Reflexology is similar to acupuncture and acupressure in that it works with the body’s vital energy through the stimulation of points on the body. However, acupuncture/acupressure points do not always coincide with the reflex points used in reflexology.

Reflexology and acupressure are both “reflex” therapies in that they work with points on one part of the body to affect other parts of the body. While reflexology uses reflexes that are in an orderly arrangement resembling a shape of the human body on the feet, hands, and outer ears, acupressure uses over 800 reflex points that are found along long thin energy lines called meridians that run the length of the entire body.

Massage: Some people confuse reflexology with massage. While both massage and reflexology use touch, the approaches are very different.

  • Massage is the systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, using specific techniques (for example, tapping, kneading, stroking, and friction) to relax the muscles.
  • Reflexology focuses on reflex maps of points and areas of the body in the feet, hands, and ears using unique micromovement techniques such as thumb or finger walking and hook and backup to create a response throughout the body.

In short, massage therapists work “from the outside in,” manipulating specific muscle groups or fascia to release tension. Reflexology practitioners see themselves as working “from the inside out” -- stimulating the nervous system to release tension.

Another difference between massage and reflexology is that a client will stay fully clothed for a reflexology session except for removing footwear, whereas clients remove clothing for a massage session.

Where does reflexology come from?

Because reflexology is an ancient practice, its origin and history is difficult to track. However, reflexology is thought to have been passed down through an oral tradition, and possibly first recorded as a pictograph on the Egyptian tomb of Ankhamor in 2330 BC along with other medical procedures.

Reflexology symbols are also thought to be recorded on the feet of statues of Buddha in India and later China. The Chinese classic, the Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, which was written around 1,000 BC, has a chapter on “Examining Foot Method” and is the beginning of discussions in print about the connection of life force and points and areas on the feet.

It is believed that Marco Polo translated a Chinese massage book into Italian in the 1300s, thus introducing reflexology and massage to Europe. In 1582, a book on an integral element of reflexology called zone therapy was first published in Europe by Dr. Adamus and Dr. A’tatis.

In the United States, William H. Fitzgerald, MD, who is frequently referred to as the father of reflexology, wrote in 1917 about ten vertical zones that extended the length of the body. He found that the application of pressure to a zone that corresponded to the location of an injury could serve as relief of pain during minor surgeries.

Dr. Fitzgerald’s work was expanded by Dr. Shelby Riley, who developed a map of horizontal zones going across the body and a detailed map of reflex points on the feet and hands. He also suggested pressure points on the outer ear.

Eunice Ingham, a physiotherapist who worked for Dr. Riley, is another prominent figure in the development of reflexology. In her research with zone therapy’s pressure points, she found the feet to be the most sensitive and responsive. She developed the foot maps still in use today and introduced reflexology practices to the non-medical community in the 1930s. Ms. Ingham also designed one of the most commonly used reflexology charts, which has since been refined by her nephew, Dwight Byers, at the International Reflexology Institute.

In 1957, Dr. Paul Nogier recorded a reflex map of points on the outer ear. His work has been expanded by Oleson and Flocco and is now being taught as part of an integrated approach to hand, ear and foot reflexology.

Ezekiel 47:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”

 

There are 188 references to oils in the Bible. Some precious oils such as frankincense, myrrh, rosemary hyssop and spicknard were used for the anointing and healing of the sick. The three wise men brought essential oils of frankincense and myrrh to the Christ Child. Frankincense oil is now being researched and used therapeutically in European Hospitals. Clinical research now shows that it contains very high immune stimulating properties.

Uplifting, protective, calming, and regenerating, essential oils are a unique gift from the natural world. Often referred to as “nature’s living energy” or the very essence of a plant, essential oils are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. They not only deter­mine the plant’s aroma, but are vital for plants to grow, live, evolve, and adapt. Essential oils also help defend plants from insects, environmental conditions, and disease. Today, research shows that when used aromati­cally, applied topically, or taken internally, essential oils can calm, ener­gize, balance, purify, and rejuvenate the mind and body
From perfumes and aromatherapy to cookng and medicinal purposes, essential oils have been a vital part of everyday life, dating back to 4500 BC. After personally experiencing the many benefits of essential oils, D. Gary Young, Founder and President of Young Living Essential Oils, began a personal campaign to promote the ancient healing art of essential oil therapy. The result? An abundant line of pure, therapeutic-grade essen­tial oils, including over 140 single essential oils and unique essential oil blends, and the world’s largest community dedicated to achieving well­ness via nature’s purest, most potent gift.

Raindrop Therapy originated from the research of D. Gary Young and a Lakota medicine man in the 1970s. It is based on the theory that many types of spinal misalignments are caused by viruses or bacteria that lie dormant along the spine. Different essential oils are dripped onto the spine, legs and feet and worked into the vertebrae to bring the body into structural and electrical alignment.

This technique uses a sequence of highly antimicrobial essential oils designed to simultaneously reduce inflammation and kill the viral agents responsible for it. Although the entire process lasts approximately 1 hour, the oils will continue to work in the body for 5 to 7 days following treatment, with continued realignment taking place during this time.

Oils listed below are commonly used in a raindrop therapy

  Basil-can be relaxing to the muscles, including smooth muscles (those not subject to our voluntary control, such as the heart and digestive system). It may also be used to soothe insect bites when applied topically. Beneficial for mental fatigue, basil may help stimulate and sharpen the sense of smell.

 Wintergreen / Birch-contains an active principle similar to cortisone and is beneficial for massage associated with bone, muscle, and joint discomfort.

Cypress-is one of the oils most used for the circulatory system. It is also a natural antimicrobial (an agent that kills microorganisms or suppresses their multiplication or growth).

Marjoram-is used for soothing the muscles and the respiratory system. It also assists in calming the nerves. It is antimicrobial and antiseptic.

Oregano-is one of the most powerful antimicrobial essential oils. Highly damaging to many kinds of viruses, oregano was recently shown in laboratory research conducted at Weber State University to have a 99 percent kill rate against in vitro colonies of Streptococcus pneumoniae, even when used in one percent concentration. (S. pneumoniae is responsible for many kinds of lung and throat infections).

Peppermint-is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for soothing digestion. Many studies have shown the usefulness of peppermint's role in affecting impaired taste and smell when inhaled; the ability to improve concentration and mental accuracy; ability to directly affect the brain's satiety center, which triggers a sensation of fullness after meals.

Thyme-is one of the most antimicrobial and antiseptic essential oils. It contains thymol, which has been studied for its effect on gingivitis and plaque-caused organisms in the mouth. It may be beneficial in helping to overcome fatigue and exhaustion.

Aroma Siez blend-helps relax, calm, and relieve tight, sore, tired, and aching muscles resulting from sports injuries, fatigue, and stress. Contains Basil, marjoram, lavender, peppermint and cypress.

Valor blend-helps balance electrical energies within the body, giving courage, confidence, and self-esteem. It has been found to help the body self-correct its balance and alignment. Contains Spruce, rosewood, blue tansy, and frankincense in a base of almond oil.

These oils are used on the feet with Reflexology and then "dropped" along the spine and massaged into the body with a gentle persuasive massage which encourages your body to relax and re-align itself while the spine is gently stretched to release any muscle tension and mis-alignments. The oils used are intended to help rid the body of bacteria and viruses that are trapped in the tightened muscles along the spine.

Raindrop Therapy is not a cure-all. It is a tool to help restore a balance in the body that may result in good health.

Aromatherapy rejuvenates mind, body, spirit.

By KELLY WILSON

The activities of the holiday season, from shopping to baking to party going, often can make a person   feel overwhelmed and stressed out.  But Sherry Cress of Quincy says there's a way to comfort oneself   and de-stress during a hectic time, while creating a festive holiday atmosphere at the same time. The elixir: aromatherapy.  Aromatherapy uses pure essential oils to relax, balance and rejuvenate.  Some   oils in particular have scents that are perfect for the holidays - pine, nutmeg, peppermint, frankincense and myrrh. "Oils are my passion," said Cress, who has been using essential oils for about 12 years.     She's an independent distributor of the essential oils and teaches aromatherapy classes at Body Mind Spirit, 1704 N. 24th. Essential oils are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and  seeds.  Research shows that when used aromatically, applied topically or taken internally, essential oils can calm,  energize, balance, purify and rejuvenate the mind and body.  "Aromatherapy oils started before biblical times with the Egyptians and Chinese," Cress said. In addition to directly inhaling the oils, drops can be placed in an oil diffuser or in a humidifier to disperse into the air.  People can use the oils  to create a relaxing bath.  Cress said essential oils also can be applied   topically to the body.  "So many think aromatherapy is smelling the oils, but it's also applying the oils," she said. "You can use the oils on the point of concern (on the body) or the bottom of the feet, and it will reach all cells within 20 to 25 minutes." If the oil is a pure grade, just one drop is needed.  Hundreds of different oils are available. Some are single oils, while others are at least two oils blended together.  For stress, Cress suggests lavender. "It's a very calming oil. When we get worn down with the holidays, it's good for that," she said. "There's also a (blended) oil called joy that helps with the emotional part. It uplifts us." Roman chamomile and an oil called peace and calming also are good to rid the body of stress and tension, and an oil called immune power can help boost the immune system,  she said. "For me, when I get sick or feel run-down,    I use a special bath of seven oils that soak in the water, and (it) helps relieve the tension in your joints, it helps pull all the bad stuff out," she said. "It helps get you going again. "  The Young Living brand of essential oils, which Cress uses and sells, has a holiday collection that includes Christmas spirit, joy, cassia, frankincense, myrrh, nutmeg, orange, peppermint and pine. These oils not only help rejuvenate individuals, but also can fill a home with cheer.  "It smells just like Christmastime in your house," Cress said of the Christmas spirit oil. The oils can be placed in water in the Christmas tree stand or sprayed directly on artificial trees for a fresh-cut aroma.  Cress said people can add a festive scent to the fireplace by putting one or two drops of essential oils on the log.  At night, she suggests wiping some oil on the pillowcase to help promote a sense of calm and   provide a better night's sleep. Lavender works well for this, she said. "Lavender is a universal oil, good for anything and everything," she said. "If you're not sure which oil to use, use lavender." She emphasizes that single oils can be layered, or used together, but blended oils should not be. If a person wants to use the oils topically but has sensitive skin, she says it's best to apply them to the feet. People who have allergies need to be careful which essential oils they use. For example, if someone is allergic to birch, he should refrain from using a birch oil.

Reiki by Sherry

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.

In Cantonese, “Lingzhi or Reishi”, is the name for one form of the mushroom Ganoderma Lucidum. It enjoys an honourable place in Asia, where it has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years. In China it’s known as the “Miraculous King of Herbs”.  The scientific name “Ganoderma” is derived from the Ancient Greek   ”bright shiny skin”.  The word “Lingzhi”, in Chinese, means “herb of spiritual potency” and has also been described as “mushroom of immortality”.
Thanks to modern science and cutting edge technology, Organo Gold and our strategic partners have created 100 Percent Certified Organic Ganoderma Lucidum Capsules, Ganoderma Spore Powder, Ganoderma Mycellium Healthy Beverages, Nutrecuticals and Skin Care.

The home of Ganoderma may be China, but thanks to Organo Gold and our growing team of worldwide distributors its story is now spreading to the rest of the world.
 

Ganoderma anti cancer effects.
It is well known that modern cancer treatment uses radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells and in the process it destroys the essential cells in the body, such as white blood cells, blood producing cells and others. The cancer cells multiply when treatment is discontinued in the bodies weaken state. So discontinuing chemotherapy usually leads to the weakening of the body and lowering of the bodies immunity. The use of Ganoderma helps destroy cancer cells, together with radio therapy and chemotherapy. Ganoderma also fight against the negative effects of radiation and reduces damage of white blood cells, blood producing cells and others. It is said that Ganoderma improve the tolerance of chemotherapy, improve appetite and strengthen immunity. Many patients, with tumors, had their symptoms significantly reduced after using Ganoderma.

Use your research powers to see why this really is the number one herb, the king of herbs, in Asian medicine.


Organo Gold Grapeseed Capsules
When we say “Grapeseed Capsules”, in reality what you’re receiving is a Grapeseed Oil Extract. With all this Ganoderma flying around, it may be of some wonder why we would include such a product.
    These Grapeseed Capsules from Organo Gold contain essential fatty acids on top of antioxidants which are great for the body. It also contains phyto-chemicals and resvaratol, which are known for anti-inflammatory properties. Resveratol when taken in high amounts can significantly lower blood sugar levels.

Organo Gold’s Mycelium is frequently misunderstood. Is it a brand name? Is it different from Ganoderma?                                                                                    Does it clean my laundry?.....     No.

Mycelium is actually a stage of Ganoderma. In fact, it is the earliest stages of Ganoderma during which certain properties of the Ganoderma can only be obtained during this window.
    The effects obtained from harvesting the Ganoderma in this stage are mainly on the human brain. And in addition to this it works well with the immune system to keep it in balance with its’ natural state.
    In the grand scheme of things, humans have nothing more powerful than their immune system to fight off colds and illnesses. Keeping it in excellent shape should be a priority for those interested in leading a long healthy life.

Why not use an all natural herb to help your immune system along? Get your bottle of Organo Gold Mycelium Capsules today!


Organo Gold Ganoderma Spore Capsules
Move out of the way all you other capsules. The “king” of capsules has arrived!
   Ganoderma Spores from Organo Gold are the most powerful from of Ganoderma you will find anywhere. Other companies are unable to provide this form of Ganoderma to you for one simple reason.
   Obtaining Spores from a Ganoderma mushroom requires that the mushroom is able to mature to its’ furthest state. This is why Organo Gold grows its’ Ganoderma in the natural state it should be grown (on logs). From this, 1kg of Ganoderma Spores can be harvested from every 1000kg of the Ganoderma mushroom!
   Other companies grow their Ganoderma in bags, not allowing the mushroom to reach this state of growth.
So you might be thinking… what makes the Ganoderma Spores so special other than how hard they are to achieve? Well, we’re glad you asked!
   While Ganoderma Lucidum is an excellent form of the Ganoderma mushroom, the Ganoderma Spores are known to be 17 times more powerful than the body of the mushroom itself. That’s right, SEVENTEEN times more powerful.

So, if you want your fix of health benefits from Ganoderma, this is the bottle for you. Order today! Call me Sherry Cress @ 217 430 4930

What is Ganoderma? (Also known as Reishi or Lingzhi)

Regarded by the Chinese as the “King of Herbs” or the Miracle Herb” because of its ability to help improve the body’s healing capacity and longevity,Ganoderma Lucidum is a medicinal mushroom with a number of natural health-benefits.

Ganoderma Lucidum, once reserved for “ROYALTY”, enjoys an honourable place in Asia, where it has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years. The scientific name “Ganoderma” is derived from the Ancient Greek   ”bright shiny skin”.  The word “Lingzhi”, in Chinese, means “herb of spiritual potency” and has also been described as “mushroom of immortality”.

Ganoderma lucidum is a natural source of many useful bio-chemicals which provide a number of health benefits to our body without interfering with our body system. Filled with many antioxidants and phytonutrients, Ganoderma Lucidum is the closest thing to nutritional perfection found in nature.

 
Benefits of the “Miraculous King of Herbs”
  • Provides more energy and vigor!
  • Boosts stamina! (Less fatigue)
  • Rejuvenates!
  • Clearer skin
  • Oxygenates body!
  • Natural detoxification!
  • Mental alertness!
  • Supports the immune system
  • Improve body healing capacity!
  • Supports quality of sleep
  • Supports circulation

Health Benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum

  • Ganoderma has been known for centuries for alkalizing and oxygenating the body to establish the foundation for a lifetime of good health, removing the basis for osteoporosis, arthritis, adult-onset diabetes, heart disease, and many other degenerative conditions including cancer. No disease can survive in a super oxygenated environment. When your body has sufficient oxygen, it thrives. Ganoderma is a super herb which rapidly oxygenates your body and automatically adjusts your PH to a healthy balance at the cellular level.
  • Weight Loss: Oxygen is a necessary component for burning fuel. the more you oxygenate the body, the higher your metabolism. That means weight loss
  • Ganoderma is backed up with evidence-based documented research in reducing cholesterol levels andeasing allergy-related inflammation of the airway
  • Often used as an immune stimulant by people with cancer (as well as HIV), Ganoderma has been shown tostrengthen immunity as well as combat cancer-cell proliferation
  • Powerful anti-aging and immune boosting properties

Benefits of GANODERMA (reishi) for specific health conditions include the following:

  • Alcoholism and cirrhosis of the liver . Reishi helps to prevent alcohol-induced fatty liver and cirrhosis. It is beneficial for people in earlier stages of alcoholic liver disease who have not yet experienced severe loss of liver function.
  •  Bronchitis and yeast infection. Reishi stimulates the maturation of immune cells known as macrophages, which engulf and digest infectious bacteria. This prevents secondary infections from developing into cases of chronic bronchitis. Mature macrophages also are active against yeasts, making reishi a valuable treatment for yeast infection.
  • Fibroids (uterine myomas). Reishi keeps the uterine lining from making both basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), a chemical that promotes fibroid growth, and histamine, a chemical that causes inflammation.
  • High blood pressure. There is evidence that reishi can lower both blood pressure and blood-cholesterol levels. Scientists at Oklahoma’s Oral Roberts University found that compounds in reishi reduce the flow of nerve impulses through the sympathetic nervous system, the portion of the nervous system activated by emotional stress. Russian scientists screening mushrooms as potential cholesterol-lowering drugs have found that reishi extracts stop the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries of laboratory  animals. Two controlled clinical studies have investigated the effects of reishi on high blood pressure in humans. Both found it could lower pressure significantly as compared with a placebo. The subjects with high blood pressure in the second study had not previously responded to medications.
  • Stress. Eastern physicians have recognized for centuries that reishi can reduce emotional outbursts during long-term stress. Exactly how reishi does this has not been studied, but it is likely due to the herb’s effects on the central nervous system. Additionally, doctors at the Hijitaki Clinic in Tokyo have found that reishi helped to decrease physical pain dramatically in two people with neuralgia and two other people with shingles (herpes zoster). This quality may also help stop emotional outbursts.
  • Prevents and fights cancer: Reishi stimulates the body’s production of interleukin-2, which fights several types of cancer, and it contains compounds called ganoderic acids, which act against liver cancer. Reishi counteracts the suppression of red and white blood cells that can result from cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Neosar) treatment by stimulating the creation of protein in the bone marrow. In 1931, Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for the connection he discovered between oxygen and cancer. His studies showed that the number one cause of cancer is a lack of oxygen in the cellular environment. Warburg determined that cancer cells are anaerobic, meaning they thrive in an oxygen-depleted environment. Conversely, cancer cells cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment. Warburg also wrote about oxygen’s relationship to the pH of cancer cells and the body’s terrain. He said that cancer maintains a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic-acid production and elevated CO2. Warburg believed that higher pH (more alkaline) meant higher concentrations of oxygen, and vice versa. What Warburg discovered for cancer is true for all degenerative disease. Oxygen and a healthy pH balance are the foundational keys to a healthy body.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Steve Cress.  I'm a 5 year cancer survivor and for the past 5 years I have suffered with extreme Neuropathy in my feet and hands. Click here for an explanation of Neuropathy. I have been under a doctor’s care for the past 5 years, we have discussed different drugs to help relieved the pain, but the side effects were worse than I was willing to cope with. I decide to deal with the pain and live with it until now.  

Wednesday  July 17, 2013 We had a very informative meeting with several people that had testimonies about a new product.   

  Recently my wife Sherry has been doing some Reflexology and raindrop therapy on one of our friends to help him with severe stomach problems. Joe had also heard of this product from one of his friends and had started using it with good results. Joe had arranged for his friend Don to come from Wisconsin to display this product called Organo Gold. Don’s wife Rebecca made samples of the teas, coffee, and hot chocolate.  Don was explaining about the line of products from Organo Gold while we were sampling some of the drinks. I’m not a coffee drinker so I had the hot chocolate. I drank one cup and continued to listen then I tried a cup of the Black tea. It wasn’t my cup of tea “ LOL” so I had another cup of chocolate. About 25 minutes later I started to feel different. Then I realized the pain in my feet was almost gone. I was amazed and not sure if what I was feeling was real. I told Sherry very excitedly to do Reflexology on my feet.  She tried to hush me so she could listen to the demonstration but I insisted that she do reflexology on my feet.” NOTE Sherry has never been able to do reflexology on me due to the pain”. But this time it didn’t hurt.  I could even walk on the cold floor without hurting. So to make a long story short we bought  Organo Gold and now I’m telling everyone about it.      

Thursday July 18, 2013 I had a relatively good night sleep with very little to no pain in my feet. Showered got dressed minus socks. Drank my hot chocolate and put my socks on. This may sound odd to anyone else but for me sitting in my recliner with the ceiling fan running with socks on my feet is a very painful ordeal. Within about ten minutes that pain had almost completely disappeared.

Thursday   July 25, 2013 It has been just a little over a week now, and I have had a large cup of Organo Gold chocolate every morning. The ability to sleep with relatively little or no pain in my feet is amazing.  This morning I went to the Cancer center here in town and explained this to my doctor. He was amazed and happy for me. I will follow up with him in a month to give him a progress report and to do some blood lab work to make sure there are no ill effects. I will update this and let you know of the results.

Thursday August 22, 2013 Just finished drinking my cup of chocolate and each day I feel better than the day before. I am so amazed the the pain in my feet and hands have almost completely gone and I have also found that the ringing in my ears are not as bad. I am going to start taking the Mycelium capsule's to even increase my unbelievable good health. Tomorrow I see my chemoncologist for some blood work up and to tell him how much better I feel.

Friday August 23, 2013 Saw my Chemo Oncologist today and had blood workup to see if there were any ill affects of taken the Ganoderma  and explained to him how much better I was feeling. Blood work showed no ill affects and the Dr. was impressed.

Wednesday April 2, 2014 Saw my Chemo Oncologest yesterday, he was very impressed with the results of how the Ganodema was helping me and even telling others about it. Now here is something else I found out yesterday. Last week I went to my primary doctor and my blood work show my blood sugar was too high. He wanted to put me on medication, but I try to do everything as naturally as possibly so I started adding cinnamon to my Organo Gold and my blood work yesterday show that it drop 70 points

A personal note on what the Organo Gold is doing for me. I have suffered with extreme Neuropathy for over 5 years as a side effect from chemo which left me little or no feeling in my hands and feet. It is also very painful, anything below 60 degrees was unbearable. This past winter was one of the worst as far as the weather is concerned. Now for the Good news I have been drinking a large cup if Organo Gold hot chocolate with Ganoderma every morning since last August and my Neuropathy is nearly gone. I was able to work outside for extended periods of time and even turned the thermostat to 64 in the house instead of 72. If you would like more information about Organo Gold products call me.

Chemotherapy-induced Peripheral Neuropathy

It usually starts in the hands and/or feet and creeps up the arms and legs. Sometimes it feels like a tingling or numbness. Other times, it’s more of a shooting and/or burning pain or sensitivity to temperature. It can include sharp, stabbing pain, and it can make it difficult to perform normal day-to-day tasks like buttoning a shirt, sorting coins in a purse, or walking. An estimated 30 to 40 percent of cancer patients treated with chemotherapy experience these symptoms, a condition called

CIPN is one of the most common reasons that cancer patients stop their treatment early. (See sidebar for a list of drugs that can cause CIPN.) For some people, the symptoms can be mitigated by lowering the dose of chemotherapy or temporarily stopping it, which diminishes the pain within a few weeks. But, for other patients, the symptoms last beyond their chemotherapy for months, years, or even indefinitely.

“Peripheral neuropathy can be an incredibly debilitating side effect,” explained Dr. Ann O’Mara, head of NCI’s Palliative Care Program in the Division of Cancer Prevention. “We can’t predict who will come down with it or to what degree they will get it. So there are a lot of questions around this issue, in terms of preventing and treating it.”

Outside of clinical trials, CIPN symptoms are commonly managed in a manner similar to other types of nerve pain—that is, with a combination of physical therapy, complementary therapies such as massage and acupuncture, and medications that can include steroids, antidepressants, anti-epileptic drugs, and opioids for severe pain. But these therapies have not demonstrated true efficacy for CIPN, and virtually all of the drugs to treat peripheral neuropathy carry side effects of their own.

Life with Neuropathy

Cynthia Chauhan is a patient advocate who is very active in the cancer community. She participates with several boards and committees that advise NCI-sponsored clinical trial groups, including the North Central Cancer Treatment Group and the Southwest Oncology Group, and she is co-chair of the Patient Advocate Working Group for the Translational Breast Cancer Research Consortium. She is also very familiar with the burden of peripheral neuropathy and the shortcomings of current treatments.

A two-time cancer survivor, Ms. Chauhan lives with peripheral neuropathy that arose spontaneously—called idiopathic neuropathy—nearly 15 years ago. Her symptoms include shooting pains, fiery numbness, and tingling in her hands and feet, as well as a lack of sensitivity to temperatures. Her mother developed chronic CIPN during her treatment for stage IV ovarian cancer and, because of the pain, has terrible difficulty sleeping. “But without the drugs that caused her neuropathy, she would not have survived,” Ms. Chauhan said. “So she uses that knowledge to balance the negative aspects.

“I’m an optimist by nature,” Ms. Chauhan continued. “I like to focus on what I have, rather than what I don’t have, and I can still walk and use my hands—I’m an artist, so my hands are important to me. That I can still use them is very positive.”

She has tried several medications for her neuropathy, and all of the systemic drugs caused unbearable side effects. Today she manages her pain with Lidoderm patches and the practice of guided imagery and meditation, which she says function mostly as distractions for the pain. “Nothing ever stops it. It’s a 24-7 issue with me. I know that drugs work for some people, and if you can find effective medications under the care of a really knowledgeable physician, that’s great,” she said. “But more basic and translational research is critical for those of us who are living with the condition.”

Chemotherapy Drugs Associated with CIPN

·         Vincristine

·         Taxanes (docetaxel,paclitaxel)

Disclaimer: As with all products such as Orgango Gold or medication, NOT everyone will react the same or benefit the same. This is to be used as a guide and the use of or frequency, amount of the products may need to altered to benefit you as needed.

Education of Organo Gold or any other product for that matter is important in order to receive the benefits to the fullest. Please take the time to read this carefully to fully understand Ganoderma. Switching from a regular high-acidic caffeine coffee to a healthier, safer and a more nutritious Ganoderma coffee, tea or hot chocolate makes sense due to ability of Ganoderma to improve the functions of the immune system in both adults and children. Enjoy a healthier coffee that has absolutely no caffeine, no jitters or crashes. See why it’s Organo Golds strategy to infuse such a powerful herb into a drink that billions of people consume.

 

  "Ganoderma"What is Ganoderma?
In Cantonese, “Lingzhi or Reishi”, is the name for one form of the mushroom Ganoderma Lucidum. It enjoys an honorable place in Asia, where it has been used as a medicinal mushroom in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 4,000 years. In China it’s known as the “Miraculous King of Herbs” products. Ganoderma helps the body adapt to many types of body stress’s such as trauma, sleep deprivation, temperature, exposure to toxins, psychological stress, infection, or radiation. Ganoderma helps the body to return to a normal, balanced state.

 

The Internet is full of information on the health benefits of ganoderma. One interesting and very important effect the herb has is balancing the pH level in the body. The fluids in the human body can have either acidic or alkaline (base) properties. The pH (potential of hydrogen) level in the body is measured by the ratio of acidic-alkaline on a scale of 0 to 14 (0 being most acidic and 14 being alkaline or base). Ideally, the body should be in a neutral state, but leaning toward an alkaline state, a little above a value of 7. Too much acid in our system causes the body to become chemically unbalanced which has negative effects on our health. Ganoderma works to neutralize the acids in the body and brings the body closer to this alkaline state.

Ganoderma Lifecycle

GANODERMA MYCELIUM is a product of the reishi mushroom when it is in root form. At this stage of its growth, it is only 18-21 days old. In this stage, it contains a high concentration of organic germanium and polysaccharide. Ganoderma mycelium has positive effects on the human brain and is also an immune system enhancer.

GANODERMA LUCIDUM is a product of reishi mushroom when in its mature state. It reaches this state after 90 days of growth. There is a long list of health benefits associated with the mushroom in this form. To name a few, Ganoderma lucidum is an anti-allergen, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory. It also balances the pH levels in the body and has a regenerating effect on the skin.

GANODERMA SPORES are like the seed of the mushroom. Once the spore is cracked, its health benefits can be reaped. Organo Gold has a patented technology that allows them to crack the spore to yield the maximum benefit. Ganoderma in this form is 17 times more powerful than Ganoderma lucidum and is rich in polysaccharides, triterpenes, Organic germanium and selenium.

 Some Health Benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum

·         Ganoderma has been known for centuries for alkalizing and oxygenating the body to establish the foundation for a lifetime of good health, removing the basis for osteoporosis, arthritis, adult-onset diabetes, heart disease, and many other degenerative conditions including cancer. No disease can survive in a super oxygenated environment. When your body has sufficient oxygen, it thrives. Ganoderma is a super herb which rapidly oxygenates your body and automatically adjusts your PH to a healthy balance at the cellular level.

·         Weight Loss: Oxygen is a necessary component for burning fuel. the more you oxygenate the body, the higher your metabolism. That means weight loss

·         Ganoderma is backed up with evidence-based documented research in reducing cholesterol levels and easing allergy-related inflammation of the airway

·         Often used as an immune stimulant by people with cancer (as well as HIV), Ganoderma has been shown to strengthen immunity as well as combat cancer-cell proliferation

·         Powerful anti-aging and immune boosting properties

·         Alcoholism and cirrhosis of the liver. Reishi helps to prevent alcohol-induced fatty liver and cirrhosis. It is beneficial for people in earlier stages of alcoholic liver disease who have not yet experienced severe loss of liver function.

·          Bronchitis and yeast infection. Reishi stimulates the maturation of immune cells known as macrophages, which engulf and digest infectious bacteria. This prevents secondary infections from developing into cases of chronic bronchitis. Mature macrophages also are active against yeasts, making reishi a valuable treatment for yeast infection.

·         Fibroids (uterine myomas). Reishi keeps the uterine lining from making both basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), a chemical that promotes fibroid growth, and histamine, a chemical that causes inflammation.

·         High blood pressure. There is evidence that reishi can help lower both blood pressure and blood-cholesterol levels. Scientists at Oklahoma’s Oral Roberts University found that compounds in reishi reduce the flow of nerve impulses through the sympathetic nervous system, the portion of the nervous system activated by emotional stress. Russian scientists screening mushrooms as potential cholesterol-lowering drugs have found that reishi extracts stop the accumulation of cholesterol in the arteries of laboratory animals. Two controlled clinical studies have investigated the effects of reishi on high blood pressure in humans. Both found it could lower pressure significantly as compared with a placebo. The subjects with high blood pressure in the second study had not previously responded to medications.

·         Stress. Eastern physicians have recognized for centuries that reishi can help reduce emotional outbursts during long-term stress. Exactly how reishi does this has not been studied, but it is likely due to the herb’s effects on the central nervous system. Additionally, doctors at the Hijitaki Clinic in Tokyo have found that reishi helped to decrease physical pain dramatically in two people with neuralgia and two other people with shingles (herpes zoster). This quality may also help stop emotional outbursts.

·         Prevents and fights cancer: Reishi stimulates the body’s production of interleukin-2, which fights several types of cancer, and it contains compounds called ganoderic acids, which act against liver cancer. Reishi counteracts the suppression of red and white blood cells that can result from cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Neosar) treatment by stimulating the creation of protein in the bone marrow. In 1931, Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for the connection he discovered between oxygen and cancer. His studies showed that the number one cause of cancer is a lack of oxygen in the cellular environment. Warburg determined that cancer cells are anaerobic, meaning they thrive in an oxygen-depleted environment. Conversely, cancer cells cannot live in an oxygen-rich environment. Warburg also wrote about oxygen’s relationship to the pH of cancer cells and the body’s terrain. He said that cancer maintains a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic-acid production and elevated CO2. Warburg believed that higher pH (more alkaline) meant higher concentrations of oxygen, and vice versa. What Warburg discovered for cancer is true for all degenerative disease. Oxygen and a healthy pH balance are the foundational keys to a healthy body

How to use Organo Gold Healthy Products

Ganadorma is considered a food base. Ganoderma oxygenates the body, opens airways and increases blood oxygen to the brain helping your body organs to function better. This is a detoxification process, so be sure to drink lots of water.

When drinking the product of your choice it is recommended that you include 1 Grape Seed capsule and 1 Mycelium capsule each day.  The Grape Seed helps the body to absorb the Ganadorma better. Mycelium helps to relax the muscles, nerves, & mind and may be taken up to 3 capsules 3 time a day as needed to relieve pain and muscle tension. By taking a Mycelium along with a Grape Seed the Ganadorma will reach the brain 30% faster than just drinking a Organo Gold product alone. This process will detox the brain helping with depression and other issues. Grape Seed can be 30% more beneficial than vitamin C or E.

Remember as with all products such as Orgango Gold or medication, NOT everyone will react the same or benefit the same. This is to be used as a guide and the use of or frequency, amount of the products may need to be altered to benefit you as needed.

Organo Gold Coffee FAQ's

 

Answers to the most Frequently Asked Questions about Organo Gold products:

Is Organo Gold Coffee Healthy?

The Ganoderma added to the Organo Gold coffee is known for its incredible health benefits. Ganoderma contains over 150 different anti-oxidants that help detoxify and oxygenate the body. This is where you get the energy boost you feel without the negative effects of caffeine.

Is Organo Gold Coffee Good for You?
Organo Gold coffee is a healthy alternative because it uses higher quality coffee beans and has an added ingredient called Ganoderma Lucidum or Reishi. Since you are getting Ganoderma in every cup of Organo Gold Gourmet Coffee, it is far superior for your health when compared to normal Robusto coffee beans. You will feel more energy, vigor, enjoy better sleep quality, and Ganoderma promotes health and longevity. Ganoderma also has positive benefits by supporting the immune system with good nutrition.

Does Organo Gold Coffee Contain Caffeine?
Organo Gold coffee is caffeinated, however, the presence of Ganoderma neutralizes the negative caffeine effects so you get the "boost" without the negative effects of caffeine. Organo Gold coffee is a healthy alternative because it uses a gourmet blend made mostly from Arabica coffee beans grown in South America. Coffee made from Robusto coffee beans are naturally higher in caffeine and are more acidic than Arabica coffee beans. You will notice a much smoother taste as soon as you sip Organo Gold coffee.

I
s Organo Gold Coffee Instant?
Organo Gold Coffee is instant with the exception of one of their coffee blends called Jamaican Royal Blue Mountain Brewed Coffee. Most people would ask this question because they just don't like instant coffee, I felt the same way until I started drinking Organo Gold coffee regularly. As with anything new, I was a bit skeptical and of course my natural instinct was to compare it to what I was used to drinking. It is not the same taste as a perfectly prepared hot cup of fresh brewed coffee from an amazing barista, but then again, how many times have you had to endure a bad cup of coffee just to get a caffeine boost? 
I am being honest when I tell you that the taste actually grew on me after sampling the variety of coffees, teas and hot chocolates that Organo Gold offers.  I was amazed how great I felt and that I actually began looking forward to having another cup even though one cup made me feel fully content and energized. Did I lower my taste standard? No, I raised my health standard and now enjoy my coffee and tea rather than feeling the need to quench an addiction to caffeine. Taste is a very personal feeling and you can't tell someone else what they should or should not like. It's best to taste and decide for yourself what you like.

Is Organo Gold Coffee Organic?
We use only the finest, purest Ganoderma Lucidum available in our coffee products. The Ganoderma is certified 100% organic by the USDA, European Union, Japan and China. You will noticed the difference that 100% certified organic Ganoderma makes. The coffee is not organic certified except for two blends that OG offers. "The King of Coffee" and OG Green Tea is certified organic. The King of Coffee also contains 100% certified Organic Ganoderma spore powder (believed to be 17 times better than just Ganoderma Lucidum).

The Effects Of Ganoderma - 5 Stage Process

                                                          The effects of Ganoderma on the body have to go through five (5) stages:
 
  1.
Scanning - Ganoderma helps to detect hidden disease and toxins in the body and proceed to regulate the body functions. During the process, the body will show symptoms- known as 'ailment reflection". This reaction is not a side effect, but to help us identify the ailing area. This is the scanning effect of Ganoderma.

  2.
Cleansing-Detoxification - Ganoderma is known as "King of toxin removers" for its power to remove excessive uric acid, lactic acid, excess cholesterol, fat deposits, dead tissue and toxins accumulated in the body. Toxins are discharged through the circulation system - (kidney and liver) by urination and stool, through perspiration, boils, rashes, phlegm and mucus.

  3.
Regulation - During the restoring process, many reactions can be observed. Do not be alarmed, this is the sign of the body healing itself. If the reaction is too strong, reduce the dosage.

  4.
Building-Recovery - Ganoderma will continue to repair the affected body parts, and strengthen the immune system to be more resistant to diseases. It also supplies the essential elements and vitamins for speedy recovery.
 
  5.
Rejuvenation - The ultimate aim of consuming Ganoderma is to maintain the body functions at its optimum and restore youthfulness.
