Glands

I woke up this morning feeling good about my glands. Yesterday I was completely disturbed, the previous night had been disrupted, and in a sense I felt out of control. The grass was being cut so it was noisy and I rushed off to the beach, and then had a herbal massage. I went to sleep before midnight – a rarity, and woke up with the chickens – as I would like to.

Today is the last acupuncture treatment, and tomorrow I start the diet. I feel as if I am somewhere near the last hurdle – but in truth dealing with glands will always be with me. I compare this with probiotics. At a certain stage I felt that I had those yooi under control, but they slipped back out of balance on occasions – see tag cloud probiotics. When I look back at this blog the battle with the yooi is ongoing, rather than just one skirmish and then over. It will be the same with the glands – see tag cloud glands.

Feeling good about the glands today, I wanted to write about them and put them in perspective. Apart from the young Danish ranter I have never heard them discussed in mb circles – or the plant-based diet circles. On reflection this seems rather strange as quite clearly all people age and go through menopause or andropause. Perhaps there is an assumption that these healthy diets just deal with any glandular problems, and that assumption is not that unreasonable. Let’s consider mb. The mb I don’t deal with is balancing the yin-yang, and this hormone balance problem is about excess yin. So maybe mb could be excused, except that it appears that the mb church does not recognise it as an issue. One way of healing the lymphatic system is by a plant-based diet so you might argue that it is covered there. But in truth I don’t accept either explanation. With regards to me hormones are swept under the table and not talked about.

This last part is worth considering. The droop. This is what men get up in arms about – the droop. Maybe some talk about it, maybe some worry about it, and perhaps they talk about it with doctors? When you look online about andropause, reading between the lines the issue is the droop – the balance between testosterone and oestrogen and the health consequences of that. The reduction in the production of testosterone with ageing might be a strong trigger but it is my contention that the glands are a much wider problem that needs addressing. Look at my own case. There has been a long history of flus and “cold and damp” – see tag cloud flu. This coldness Chinese medicine (TCM) recognises as excess yin in men, and that is what I have had treated with acupuncture. The disrupted sleep patterns that might well be considered as “normal retirement” and “ageing” might be rectified through hormone balance. Yet again when the establishment pill-dropping and slashing cannot handle the problem, it says the problem does not exist – I think of my migraines that I had for years with no solution except knockout drops.

So this brings me to the point of this blog, healing the glands is an additional stage in the Zandtao Healing plan. For those who start healing early in life this hormone issue might well not apply, a healthy lifestyle would probably handle the hormones. But for those who come to diet later in life I suspect hormones will be an underlying condition. By the time we take on a diet our health has deteriorated usually leading to a recognised disease – in my case GERD. But once we get through the main stages of healing:-

detox
natural eating
pH-balance
probiotics

then this underlying condition has a chance to come out. Once we recognise the imbalance then we can start healing.

In my case because the imbalance was marked I needed acupuncture – strong treatment. But there are other methods of dealing with it:-

Sauna
Massage – especially herbal.
Detox diet
Continued Zandtao Healing Plan esp exercise

When I look at this there is nothing new, apart from the acupuncture and the sauna my lifestyle would have created the hormonal balance. But remember my 7 years are not up yet – August 2014 will be 7 years from when the diet started.

I have also picked up some stop-gap measures:-

Zinc improves the immune system
Nibbling pumpkin seeds for prostate – benefits here
Cherries for serotonin
Seaweed for the thyroid
Hoi for ageing

For men don’t get sucked into the hormones = droop scenario, and ignore the possibility that glands have a wider impact on your health. Recognise that hormone imbalance might be an underlying condition that comes to the forefront as part of the 7-year healing process and be prepared to handle it. Above are some of the techniques for doing so.

This is not a small issue. The disease aspect for me was flu but that is not the real issue. This year the first flu was mid-July, and off-and-on I have been dealing with it since. Unless I had discussed this with others my life would have appeared the same but it was not. My quality of life has been down because I have not been meditating, and Chi Gung has been a struggle; mind and energy are not working well. Transpose that to those who don’t try with their health. Hormones are not making them ill so they are not an issue, this is an acceptance of a lowering of quality of life – continuous sleeping and disrupted nights. THAT is significant. Be glandularly conscious.
