Ancient Chinese medicine treats sleep as the best medicine to heal, restore, and rejuvenate one’s body and mind. How well one sleeps at night determines how well one functions during the day, and probably how long we live.
From a Chinese medicine perspective, from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.—the eight hours that people are supposed to sleep—one’s vital energy and blood concentrates in the important organs in order to replenish them after they have worked hard during the day.
For example, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., the three chambers of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis—known as the “triple burner” in Chinese medicine for their important metabolic functions—receive most of the vital energy and blood to support all the organs in the three chambers. The triple burner is responsible for the respiration of air, the transformation of food to energy, the distribution of the energy into all important internal organs, and the elimination of the waste from the body…
Those of us who were traumatized by a harsh birthing system and/or circumcision might benefit from tuning up the vagus nerve. Even just to gently massage in front of the ear or to sing and hum can be helpful. This planet, at this time in history, is not all that conducive to relaxation – and that is what the vagus nerve prefers – relaxation, peace of mind.
The vagus nerve is the most important nerve you probably didn’t know you had…
Vagus nerve dysfunction can result in a whole host of problems including obesity, bradycardia (abnormally slow heartbeat), difficulty swallowing, gastrointestinal diseases, fainting, mood disorders, B12 deficiency, chronic inflammation, impaired cough, and seizures.
Meanwhile, the vagus nerve stimulation has been shown to improve conditions such as:

Recently, an 82-year-old woman who suffered from dementia, who couldn’t recognize her own son has miraculously got her memory back after changing her diet…. [Read more at link, below.]
This story just goes to show how resilient our bodies really are if given the right environment. Most of these types of diseases are often related to diet in the first place so that means that they can indeed be reversed with a proper diet. Sure, some of them are genetic and you might be a carrier of the gene, but that is not a guarantee that it will become active, there are things you can do to minimize the risk. Our health is our greatest wealth. We have to realize that we do have a say in our lives and what our fate is.
We have covered the topic before of how aluminum build up in the brain is directly related to dementia and more specifically Alzheimer’s disease, being able to identify this as a cause is important because recognizing this means we can do our part to limit the exposure and to also detoxify our brains and bodies from this damaging heavy metal…
Many organic farmers are going back to older practices by cultivating an environment where natural pest predators can live. They’re growing flowers amongst their other crops, creating a home for creatures like parasitic wasps, who eat aphids in their larval state. It’s been a common practice to grow flowers around the perimeter of farmland acres, because it encourages biodiversity. But agriculturalists are experimenting with strips of flowers within their crops, creating a highway for bugs to travel farther and cover more ground for pest control…
Each year, an estimated 1 million Americans get sepsis and up to half die. Giving patients IV vitamin C with hydrocortisone and thiamine reduced mortality nearly fivefold, from 40 percent to 8.5 percent
A leading sepsis researcher is now planning a multicenter trial to put this novel vitamin C treatment to the test across the nation
Research shows IV vitamin C following a course of antibiotics effectively kills cancer stem cells responsible for metastasis of lethal
