How to fix Weak Posterior Chain issues with SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy

YaNaKa & Push The Foot

How to fix Weak Posterior Chain issues with SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy

by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James

Your SomaVeda® Thai Yoga client still has hamstring, hip and or low back pain after sessions or SomaVeda® Therapeutic Day program!

A review and commentary by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James: Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine

The reason may be a Weak Posterior Chain!

What is Weak Posterior Chain?

A weak Posterior chain is the structure and function of the posterior thighs (hamstrings), Gluts and Sacral/ Low Back. They are under developed, injured, weak and as a result uncoordinated and worse subject to atrophy from lack of use. When I say lack of use, I mean it in every way. Too much sitting, not enough range of motion and insufficient load bearing exercise to build and maintain healthy muscle and soft tissue including connective tissue… Ligaments and tendons etc. This region may be ischemic and low in circulating oxygen which may affect the structure and function of the nerves and soft tissue creating an inclination to spasm and further reducing accessible range of motion. Hard to do Yoga when the muscles and tissues themselves are working hard even at rest to do the opposite!

 

Why? Client Compliance and lack of proper, effective at home self care!

What does this mean and how to improve on long term issues either with or after a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga program? Rome was not built in a day! As beneficial as a full seven day+ SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol or program is, it is NOT Magic! Many chronic pain issues develop over many years and are further complicated with both traumatic history of accidents and injuries, accumulated over time. Complicated with malnutrition and toxicities, years of inactivity and resulting atrophy, energy imbalances and more. We do eventually want to address all of these as they impact the specific clients pain and well being moving them towards recovery. However, today I want to bring attention to what the clients can and does have to do on their own behalf! The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga technique I am focusing on today is the SOmaVedar Thai Yoga “YaNaKa” or “Push The Leg”. YaNaKa is the essential Thai Yoga technique, representing a three joint traction and decompression technique. YaNaKa emphasizes the posterial leg lines or Thai Sen lines above the knee to the PSIS pelvis. The three joint’s affected are the ankle, knee and pelvis. This one of the very few techniques in any physical therapy system that can traction and decompress the knee… very important and helpful if there is inflammation , extra fluid or swelling in the knee.

Watch the 159 Different YaNaKa & Push The Leg video to see the “Hands-On” Chirothesia corrections we have in our SomaVeda® kit.

We can do amazing work. The issue always comes back to what is the patient/ client doing between sessions at home? How can the client/ patient comply with their recovery process addressing some of the true causes for their “Weak Posterior Chain” issues?

What the client themselves does in support of their own progress towards either reduced pain, pain free living and or free and easy range of motion is vital. Even after a full program and any where from 9 to 12 contact hours hands on… this pales in comparison to the twenty four/ seven lifestyle of the client for ether good or ill.

All pain clients have a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance! No matter what their diagnosis, “Vikruti” or elemental imbalance or body type. How? Why? One of the key indicators of a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance is IGNORANCE. Ignorance of how the client themselves created the origin of the pain, the injury, the atrophy, the chronic inflammation, the poor medical or therapeutic choices which may not only not helped but made the pain worse. This includes relegating responsibility for their healing and wellness to institutional and or corporate medico’s who simply proscribed various drugs, steroids, opiates etc. for “pain management”, but which in the long term did not prove helpful.

Yes, the clients need help, need therapeutic program and intervention. However, they also need guidance in self maintenance and home practices which will educate them in support of their personal compliance routines… Where the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Program ends , the clients self work and compliance with the therapist counseling and recommendations begins!

The SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (SomaVeda® Tool Assisted Energy Line Release) protocol extends the hands on Chirothesia or manual therapeutic hands on healing ministry with the use of adjuncts therapies and “tools”. One of the most important tools is to educate the client into what they can control, contribute and effectively do at home for themselves as the partner in the therapy.

Consider: Weak Posterior Chain?

More than these? Consider:

  • Lack of Isometric Strength
  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture leading to injury
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Sluggishness in day to day life
  • Rounded Shoulder
  • Tight Hips
  • Compromised Immune System
  • “Anerobic Lactic Threshold” and why it’s important.
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in Yoga practice, the gym, sports and or Martial Arts

It’s not enough to know the clients needs to do their “home work” and self care, they need proper and sustained, detailed guidance on what to do and how to do it.

Your not going to be with them at home, so we need a home study program that targets the issue. You the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner, Therapist, Minister or Physician do your amazing part. Refer your client (also yourself if your the one with the chronic pain!) to “Ground Control Program” for an amazing program.

Please take a moment to read this important sponsored message from “Ground Control” Program. 

Have you heard about Weak Posterior Chain?

Your Posterior Chain…

…stabilize your trunk and spine during movement and sitting

…allow you to bend your hips and legs towards your chest

…support your internal organs

…is connected to your diaphragm which allows you to walk and breathe.

In other words, your posterior chain has a direct influence on your fight or flight response!

Here I am at age 17, dressed out in my Gi, competing as a Black Belt in the Seishin Kai Jiu-Jitsu Competitions!

The solution? Train Like a Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt!

Most of you know that I hold Black Belt Rank is Martial Arts as well as equivilent in MA that do not use the belt system such as Thai Muay Boran and Krabri Krabong. Click Here to see my Martial Arts Bio… I also hold Black Belt Rank in Go Budo Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu training is related to that of Judo but with a much wider variety of techniques and training methodalities. In fact, in my opinion Jiu-Jitsu training has the answer, the perfected solution to the “Weak Posterior Chain”. I have found an amazing 12 weak HOME STUDY/ HOME Practice Course which is helping thousands of athletes right now over come these physical limitations. Do not be intimidated by my reference to “Athletes”. Trust me when I say What Works for Athletes Will Work For You!

Take the challenge to restore the structure and function for your self or refer your clients using the link included below. If you need this link in an email, simply let me know and I can forward to you separately! Cheers, Aajahn Dr. James.

If the posterior chain get tight and weak, it can be a real pain but working certain muscles and doing the certain exercise combinations provide easy fixes. CLICK HERE! for the “At-Home” Compliance and personal self help program.

pelvic tensegrity

The reason may be Pelvic Tensegrity Instability.

What is Pelvic Tensegrity?

“In 1992 and again in 1995 World Congress an Low Back and Pelvic Pain the focus seemed to be the sacroiliac joint, its mechanics and its role in generating pain. There are several references to joint injection as the `gold Standard’ for diagnosis and for treatment. This need to stress joint pathology is rooted in the Newtonian concepts that the skeleton and its joints are the frame upon which the soft tissue hang, and the concept that pathology is a function of anatomical disease or injury.
On the other hand, tensegrity stresses that the bones of the skeleton are but compression elements `floating’ in a highly structures, self generating, hierarchical, integrated tension network of soft tissues.’3.” The ligaments, muscles and fascia take an a whole new importance and joint mechanics becomes soft tissue mechanics. This is consistent with the clinical observations of Mennell,’3 who stressed the play movement of joints as a necessary dynamic function and Trave11` who focused an the imbalance of tension of the muscles and fascia as a source
of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. These works echoed the pioneering precepts of A.T. Still, Palmen and others who focused an the dynamic aspects of the musculoskeletal System rather than the anatomical pathology of the structures.” (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/319016548_THE_TENSEGRITY_SYSTEM_AND_PELVIC_PAIN_SYNDROME)

Why? Client Compliance and lack of proper, effective at home self care!

Have you heard about Hip Flexors?

Hip Flexors are long muscles in the body and the only muscle that connects the upper body and lower body, also known as the psoas (pronounced so-az). (What are the Hip Flexors?) These muscles are unique in how they connect the torso and abdomen with the legs!

Your psoas…
…stabilize your trunk and spine during movement and sitting
…allow you to bend your hips and legs towards your chest
…support your internal organs
…is connected to your diaphragm which allows you to walk and breathe.
In other words, your psoas has a direct influence on your fight or flight response!

If the psoas get tight and weak, it can be a real pain but working certain muscles and doing the certain exercise combinations provide easy fixes. CLICK HERE for At Home Self Fix Program!

        low back pain
        hip pain
        stiffness
        pain while walking or moving
        trouble sleeping
        shortness of breath
You need to start undoing some of the damage done to your body and start helping the body to naturally heal itself.

The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Facilitated Whale: Ardis Matsyendra

SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Whale

The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Facilitated Whale: Ardis Matsyendra

Ajahn Dr. James SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Whale

 

The SomaVeda® The Asymmetrical Facilitated 1/2 whale/ fish pose: (Thai “Maak Bpla”, Giant Fish) or back bend with support (Thai, Leg or Bolster-Pillow).

By Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James: Founder and Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center.

SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies® Thai Yoga & Ayurveda Medicine are indigenous, traditional, spiritual medical practices adopted and used by the Native American Indigenous Church. See “What is Thai Yoga?” We learned this traditional tribal medicine from our elders in Thailand, India, Myanmar etc. These elders and medicine men and women granted us the permissions to teach others in a good way. This lesson is one of many hundreds on the many ways to bring about wellness, wellbeing, healing and vitality using traditional medicine.

Please Note: There is no better way to learn physical medicine, Chirothesia and or Kayachikitsa than under personal supervision of a master teacher! For information on SomaVeda® classes and programs check out our 164 hr. SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Practitioner course description!

Starting Position: The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Facilitated Whale is a classic “Back Bend” and another “Yin and Yang”/ “Male and Female” emphasis balancing posture. One of the major and important differences in the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga application of this therapeutic asana is that unlike the conventional Hatha Yoga posture with the same name, there is no stress, no antagonistic reflex or controlling muscular tension in the clients anterior torso as they are lowered into the bridge by the therapist/ practitioner!

This is huge! Before this experience the client has never before performed a back bend with the flexing of the abdomen and anterior spinal muscles and without the concomitant stress and tension on the anterior connective tissue and facial planes. Not only does this profoundly change the way the act of back bending is experienced from a physical perspective, it changes the emotional context and experience of the back bend. The greatest inhibition to doing successful, controlled and pain free, stress free back bends is not physical! It is emotional. By facilitating and literally guiding the client into the backward bending posture in a slow and controlled, in a completely supported fashion… the defensive and protective reflexes both physical and or emotional are reduced and or eliminated. The client can “relax” into the extension. They can collapse into the therapeutic posture, safe in the feeling of security and also knowing they do not have to get back out! They do not have to worry about escaping the posture.

On the receiving side, this can be momentous to the point of mind blowing and we expect to see both physical and emotional breakthroughs.

Because this posture is fully supported the therapist is not straining. The healer usually employees coaching, Prana Yama and or Energy Psychology adjusts while gently guiding the client into extension and the final resting position.

The client starts in Ardis Pamasana (Half Lotus or Vajra Asana/ Posture or variant such as simply comfortable sitting ) and the therapists is in Virasana (Warrior sitting pose) at right angles behind the client.

This Yoga bridge emphasis one side of the client/ patients spine more than the other (unilateral- asymmetrical facilitation). This allows the asymmetrical emphasis to address a one sided imbalance more specifically (i.e. Yin or Yang/ Male or Female side imbalance). The final position can have the clients hands in the low position when the client is restricted or the more advanced variations, with the clients hands extended overhead for a deeper bridge.

Back bends are considered one of the most important of Yoga asana and generally have the following benefits:

Release and extension of the anterior spinal muscles.

The posterior range of motion counterbalances head forward postures both in practice and pathological such as inclinations to “Red Light” or emotionally guarding postures. Red Light postures are guarding postures which are like the “Turtle” i.e. head forward and down, chin down, shoulders up and forward, chest sunken or back and pronounced curve or mid shoulder arch. We say that individuals with the Red Light posture are guarding or protecting the heart, heart chakra and or throat and may have history or issues of emotional and or physical abuse as well as issues with communication and expression of being who they are.

In practice, if we do forward bends, we always want to include back bends as counter poses.

Increases proprioception in both client and by therapist. Because the client is actually bending over our thighs we can actually feel, in real time, the spinal segments from sacrum to head including spinal, thoracic and cervical vertebrae which are and or are not responding. These locked or unresponsive spinal segments could indicate many issues such as actual spinal damage, spinal lesions and scar tissue to areas relating to emotional guarding and issues.

This posture presents all of the primary chakra and Sen lines, especially Sen Sumana or Sushumna to view and consciousness and available for attention and pressure. The therapists legs are bring energy attention, consciousness breath and pressure to the posterior lines: Sen Itha, Pinghala and both anterior and posterior meridians such as conception vessel, governing vessal and Bladder meridian. The psoas-diaphramatic complex from knee to thorax is activated and accessible.

The rib cage is open and in and extended position. The lower part creates abdominal space encouraging circulation for the various abdominal organs and is a good opportunity to actually do an abdominal focus and the entire position facilitates the flow of prana from neck to groin. This posture coupled with Pranayama or deep breathing is nothing less than amazing.

Again and super important in understanding the dramatic effects of the Whale… Especially in persons who have previously been practicing back bends of one type or another… the bridge is fully supported with the client passive, the normal antagonistic muscular reflexes and control mechanisms common to almost all back bends are reduced or not present.

At the top of the neck, there is good potential for a safe release of the neck affecting both posterior and anterior cervical structures and there is little o no risk of hyper-extension of spinal or cervical structures.

Once in the apex or final extension/ position, hold and support until the client completely releases all holding and tension and literally collapses into the support.

Adding a Dosha specific balancing emphasis such as rocking while holding works great and should be done before and after any specific point or line work. When you add the element of “rocking ” to this posture it immediately then becomes a Complex Decongestion technique facilitating Manual Lymph Drainage with an anti-inflammatory effect. The 1/2 Whale is terrific for moving fluids and congestion out of the lungs when vibration and “thumping” technique over the chest area is used.

Especially for women, If you also want a “Breast Care” emphasis the posture is the perfect posture to support or enhance a breast care & therapy protocol.

What if the client can not do the Whale?

No worries. First try to do it on the Mat or Table slowly with incremental control. If the client still can not fully engage then try using the bolster or even a pillow for a more balanced, less specific and lower or less extreme bridge and try again! All but the most inhibited clients can do this or one of the gentler variations. If they can still not do the supported and facilitated Giant Fish Pose then … skip it! Move on to the next. Try again another day!

Which reminds we! Specific point and or Low energy point/ Wind Gate release is perfect for this posture. There are many, abdominal and or torso chest, breast area points and Thai Low which are so easy to reach while in the Whale. The Whale presents a perfect opportunity to expand the treatment focus and experience depending on the clients prognosis or needs. Many times I have used the Whale as a place to do energy psychology, work on surfacing issues and as an alternative Puja or Prayer and affirmation opportunity. Try it!

DAK WUKAO – The King of SomaVeda® Hip Opening, Thai Yoga Therapy Asana

DAK WUKAO – The King of SomaVeda® Hip Opening, Thai Yoga Therapy Asana

by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James

of the SomaVeda College of Ayurveda and Thai Yoga Center

In traditional Hatha Yoga parlance this posture is know commonly as the “Sleeping or Half Pigeon Pose or asana.

In the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga applications or clinical usage we add the “facilitated” as it would be very difficult to perform this yoga therapy posture on yourself. Yes, it is easy and possible to do the generic Hatha Yoga version by yourself, on yourself… using your own body position and body weight to create downward pressure on the pinned leg.

The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga based clinical application rotates the affected leg through four or more positions individually in sequence to progressively release obstruction in the hips. Each of the incremental position emphasis are designed to create a wave or progressive release of not only the hip but all connected joints, below and above the pelvis it’s self… i.e. from ankle, knee, pelvis (anterior and posterior), sacrum, S.I, and low back! Not only it the art of the positioning complex on behalf of the therapist, but there are further considerations of Energy, Attention, Consciousness, Breath and Pressure which the therapist co-facilitates as they guide the patient, receiver through the process of receiving! One example being the use of Prana Yama technique specifically appropriate to the release and desired outcome.

(Facilitated Ardis Eka Pada Rajakapotasana: Sleeping or Half Pigeon Pose: Four Positions)

Each of the four primary positions is meant to be only an ideal application and not precisely an outcome in and of it’s self. Each progressive positioning creates it’s own corrective stress and opportunity for either the release of obstructed Prana, Chi, Breath and or the energy coirculating through the Thai Sen Lines (Kalarthari, Ittha, Pingkala, Sahatsaransi, Thawai, Nantakrawat and Khitchanna) as well as the primary meridians of the lateral, medial and posterior leg… ( Gall Bladder, Bladder, Liver, Spleen and Kidney).

Additionally, The progressions of the four primary positions act as “Open the Wind Gate” or “open the Lom” technique for several Ayurveda Marma or “Thai Lom” of the ankle, lower leg, upper leg, hip and lower abdomen (Gulpha, Indrabasti, Janu, Vitapa & Basti).

This beautiful sequence based progressive rotation into the four positions also acts as a traction and decompression technique for the joints involved themselves as well as for the major tissue, muscle, connective tissue and fascia! It can be especially powerful in decompressing the knee and the hip facilitating fluid transfer, reduction of inflammation and exchange of vital energy and nutrients which may have become stagnant due to injury or atrophy from lack of use.

According to one source looking at it from a physical therapy lens “It intensifies the action innthe hamstrings of the front leg because of the deeper hip flexion and more compression over the front leg. At the same time, it dminishes the action in the back hip and spine. By adducting the front leg, the piriformis is brought into lengthening action”, {Kaminoff}.

In my opinion this then greatly reduces any direct impingement or pressure on the sciatic nerve reducing sensitivity and or “sciatica” type of pain.

DAK WUKAO (Facilitated Ardis Eka Pada Rajakapotasana: Sleeping or Half Pigeon Pose:Four Positions)

“Working the first position in Dak Wukao

Dak Wukao is a passive range-of-motion type of therapeutic hip opening posture (asana) working the hip, lower back, ankle, and knee. This posture is 180 degrees rotation of the classic Yoga

Therapy posture. Instead of the client facing down they are supine. Instead of the client’s body weight providing the pressure necessary for the release, the practitioner’s body weight emulates the floor!

Position: Move up close to the hip, positioning your body with knees spread in such a way as to frame the hip. Raise the client’s knee upright and have their shin parallel to the floor.

The first three positions are set up the same way, with only the active hand (Live Hand) moving or changing position. Additional emphasis is to direct the knee towards or slightly outside of the shoulder on the same side to avoid binding the lower abdomen.

Ajahn Dr. Anthony B. James Dak Wukao

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Position 1. Wrist: The practitioner takes the bent leg of the client with the lower hand and places the wrist of the top hand tight behind the knee. He then leans forward bracing the shoulder against the outer knee of the client. Pressure is applied by simply leaning farther forward, pushing the bent leg downward toward the client’s chest. Hold the bottom most position 5 seconds, then slowly release by backing up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Position 2. Middle Forearm: The practitioner takes the bent leg of the client with the lower hand and places the middle forearm of the top arm behind the knee. He then leans forward bracing the shoulder against the outer knee of the client. Pressure is applied by simply leaning farther forward, pushing the bent leg downward toward the client’s chest. Hold the bottom most position 5 seconds, then slowly release by backing up.

Position 3. Upper Forearm: The practitioner takes the bent leg of the client with the lower hand and places the upper forearm of the top arm behind the knee. He then leans forward bracing the shoulder against the outer knee of the client. Pressure is applied by simply leaning farther forward, pushing the bent leg downward toward the client’s chest. Hold the bottom most position 5 seconds, then slowly release by backing up.

Dak Wukao Straight Arm

Position Four. Straight Arm Press:

The last and final position is to remove (roll out) the top arm entirely from behind the knee, and with one hand holding the foot and one on the knee, with straight arms, press the leg as far toward the body as possible, by leaning forward, then release slowly.

Indications: Provides the external rotation and flexion that your hips need to remain agile; releases tension in your hips from sitting all day. Stretches the thighs, groin and Psoas muscles, abdomen, chest and shoulders, and neck, compresses and stimulates the abdomen, abdominal organs and the energetic structures of the Chakras, Sen Lines,Lom/ Marma from the feet to the core of the body.

Contraindications: Sacroiliac injury, Ankle injury, Knee injury, Tight pelvis, hips or thighs.

In traditional application we work the affected side asymetrically and emphasis the affected side (male or female) with whatever is the appropriate Dosha balancing emphasis of Vatta, Pitta or Kapha indicated. The means either faster,

repetitively, deeper, slower or even holding each position longer with counterpart Prana Yama emphasis.

Because of the powerful and specific energetic and core focus, the client will often experience emotional release and or the triggering of Old Unresolved Negative Emotional Issues “NEMO’s”. Now is a good time to manifest the hand of healing!

How to Practice SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Under Corona Concerns

Native American Indigenous Church

NAIC: Thai Yoga Center Bulletin: Updated 12/07/2020

How to Practice SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies® Thai Yoga  Under Corona Concerns

We have been receiving many queries from SomaVeda® Thai Yoga graduates and practitioners regarding how to practice or even whether they should practice at all during the Covid-19 pandemic situation. Some practitioners are located in states with “Lock Downs” and “Stay at Home Orders” and “Social Distancing” to one degree or another from quite harsh to little or no! There is no uniform strategy or solution being applied nationally. This is further complicated by local jurisdictions interpreting the “recommendations” of elected officials. In most states Massage Therapy as an industry has either been completely shut down or severely restricted, only being considered “essential” if a Licensed MD prescribes it for example… How often does that happen even in the best of times? My understanding is rarely if ever. Who can make a living like this? More than this who can help using their skills to heal their community like this?

Dr. James on Safe Practice 12/08/2020

Dr. James give an Update 05/19/2020

So what are you to do as a practitioner?

Well, if your a smart and prepared practitioner you have been working under your NAIC Legal umbrella as an NAIC AFM Authorized Minister Practitioner. Because we who practice under NAIC are legal to offer our services and minister to our members! Yes, even under “shutdown” orders. Why is this? several reasons… I won’t do the whole “Legal Guidelines ” lecture here as it is located in class, in “The Book” and in other “Legal” articles I have posted here… but I will say it simply because of A) Somaveda® Thai Yoga is NOT legally defined as “Massage” and or “Massage Therapy” unless you call it so, and or market it as such on a personal basis (Shame of you!). and B) Under NAIC Tribal Org. It is a Religious Therapeutic Ministry and “Sacerdotal Duty” of NAIC as a healing ministry. As a “Religious Practice” our healing ministry is exempted overtly from most if not all legal restrictions… Even where there have been unconstitutional (illegal- unenforceable) restrictions on religious practices they still allow “Social Distancing” and “Safe Practices”.

First a reminder here! The primary outcomes of SomaVeda® Thai Yoga are PromiiWihanSii or the four divine states of mind! They are Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity. Do you have to physically touch or be present with an individual to show, to practice or to do this? No! This means you can practice at a distance, by phone, by video or in person but with a short separation between you!

The SomaVeda® training and certification you were given included in depth education in Eating, Sacred Nutrition, Energy healing, Energy Psychology (BET/ Tapping), concrete strategies for dealing with Cancer, Diabetes and Heart Disease as well as natural solutions for infections, pain and inflammation, toxicity and deficiency. Yes, in class we emphasized the Marma Chikitsa or Hands-on (Chirothesia), However, we do train all practitioners in the holistic Ayurveda based practices of indigenous, traditional medicine as well. When you can’t emphasize the hands on … what do you emphasize? Well, every thing else! If you have forgotten the everything else… I have given you access to a wealth of practical review and new materials in  our LearnThaiYoga On-Line/ Distance learning platform for only $12.00 per month! I know ridiculously cheap for whats there. More than this there are dozens of individual lessons on how to keep you centered, healthy and organized right now! Complete reviews of all basic SomaVeda® levels, Tapping and food related.

SomaVeda® Adjunctive Therapies: Consider for the current time emphasizing SomaVeda® Adjunct Therapies: Nutritional consulting, Energy Psychology and BET/ EFT, Ayurveda Counseling, SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (Tool Assisted Energy Line Release Protocols), Nuad Prakhop and Herbal therapies, SomaVeda® Homeopathy/ Bach Flower Remedies and Sacred Waters Therapies, PEMF/ Bio-Mat and or Voltage based Therapies, Rife/ Radionic and or distance Therapies i.e. No contact vibrational Therapies etc… We have so much to offer in our tool kit for wellness. There is a therapy approach suitable for every situation no matter how dire!

There is currently no cure for Corona and there won’t be one anytime soon. Eventually, everyone is going to catch it and go through it however, they do. The most important strategy is not to try to avoid it, but to ensure that everyone who either has already been exposed or is going to be exposed (everyone) is as healthy in every way possible right now and if possible before they are infected.

This relates to “co-morbidity” i.e. the underlying, and or pre-existing medical and health conditions which complicate and exacerbate the progress and mortality possibility of Covid infections such as Diabetes, Heart Disease and Cancer, Immune Disorders or Syndromes, other unknown or “Sub-clinical” infections, Vaccine Injuries, Malnutrition, Toxicities and Deficiencies, chronic inflammatory conditions etc. From the basic certification you have the information to use for counseling on these issues!

Other established co-morbidities are STRESS! Depressions, Anxieties, Fears, Phobias, Rage and irrational anger, Addictions either alcohol, drugs or both! People are suicidal from despair and who is counseling them? You know the fundamentals of Energy Psychology i.e. BET/ EFT/ Tapping, a proven therapy you are legally authorized to do. If you did nothing but market and practice coaching and counseling people to Tapp on their emotional, mental issues you would be a God send.

For more information on Pre and or Co-Morbidities read my articleUncomplicating Corona: The Good News and The Bad!

What are Medical Doctors saying about Covid-19 and related medical practice?

 

Do everything, offer everything and find what your community wants and needs from you!

Under NAIC as an Authorized Full Blessed Member you are legal and able to do programs and sessions for your patients and clients using everything you have been given access to in your training and certification for Ministry. Yes that includes “hands-On”. But, no matter how you define or redefine your practice let it be a SomaVeda® practice. What I mean by that is a WHOLISTIC practice. I implore you to not define your practice as a “massage” , “Bodywork” or “rubbing on people for money” practice. A) That is NOT what SomaVeda® is. B) It is NOT what you were trained and or certified in. C)It is a misrepresentation of the Sacred art and entirely self limiting both for you and your clients.

My new lecture lesson series on “SomaVeda® 49 systems of Self Expression and Healing” offers many different way to take what you already know and have and format, emphasize and or market it in new and interesting ways both as service offerings and as profit centers for you!

Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of indigenous traditional medicine which has many solutions for Corona co-morbidty! If your SomaVeda® Advanced Practitioner and or Teacher you know this and have the training in Ayurveda therapy which you can counsel with.

Bottom line? If your not practicing under NAIC your on your own! Sorry, Best of luck to you negotiating the current shifting legal and health sands. If your an NAIC Authorized practitioner of any level then your legal to practice if you follow strictly all of the legal guidelines! I said IF. If you do not follow ALL of the guidelines you are simply not protected. This means every client, every single one has to be an NAIC Member… No exceptions. You have them join NAIC as an APM Member if they are not already one. Your clients can do this easily now with the New OnLine APM Registry at SomaVeda.Com. Additionally , every client, no exceptions must fill out and sign the NAIC Informed Consent and Waiver Form. You were given copies of this Consent form, additionally the form is found in the Practitioner DropBox. If you need a blank, contact the office. If legal protection was ever important it is doubly so now under the current conditions. If your not clear… go to the “Legal Guidelines” course at LearnThaiYoga and review the published materials.

Additional Suggestions:

* Keeping in mind your legal Exceptions for religious practice. Be sure to practice legally, and within all national and local laws and guidelines. Remember! “Suggested Mandates” and or “Suggested Guidelines” are NOT Laws. No more so than when your Mom used to tell you to come home before late!
* Change your rules and regulations to comply with the lawful laws, and to be safe at all times. Make sure that all clients are NAIC Members and fill out both NAIC APM Membership and Informed Consent forms to follow your new guidelines.

*Make sure to copy and prominently display your NAIC Authorization, AFM and or LCHT… If your an Ordained Minister, make sure those documents are framed and on the wall, entry way of any office, clinic or practice areas.
* Consider taking the temperature of every client before they enter your practice room. It is ok to ask (not require) clients to wash before entering the room and to optionally give the clients the option to wear a mask. The therapist may also do the same, if that is the only way to get them into your practice! The wearing of mask by the public has been completely and scientifically debunked/ discredited by most national and international experts. 73% of persons who claim to have been infected became so while wearing masks.

Let me be clear, wearing of mask is social virtue signalling and has nothing tom do with disease transmission of any virus. Many ordinary people who watch way too much “news” still believe they need to wear a muzzle or “face shaming” device for their safety.

SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Sessions are for healing and therapy and we DO need to provide a congenial and atmosphere that allows the clients to be relaxed… if that means wearing a mask then I will not turn away a client or church member because they feel they need to wear a mask. As a matter of policy NAIC does not require mask wearing for services for the obvious reasons.

* Change the way you perform SomaVeda® Thai Yoga. For fearful clients, avoid close contact with the client’s face or breath, and keep your face at a safe distance. This is the same procedure that you would follow in dealing with any person with a severe emotional trauma. We can achieve much benefit by working into issues tangentally or indirectly.

  • Suggestion and Use AYURVEDA recommendations for all pre- and or co- morbidities! I have written an extensive article with official AYUSH Ayurveda recommendations for Ayurveda medicines and supplements to keep you and your clients in tip top health and wellness. Please take a minute and familiarize yourself with the proven strategies being currently used and recommended by our Ayurvedic Medical counterparts in India and elsewhere. “SomaVeda® Thai Yoga and Ayurveda Solutions for Corona Issues“In addition to the Herbs and medicines listed I have included links on Beardedmedia.com for you to locate and purchase all the recommend supplements.

Please Note: Having made the obligatory recommendations… Do you need to really be concerned with contracting and or spreading the “Virus”? NO! The risk as promoted by the media and official government hype is “hype”-er-bolic and completely and maliciously over blown and over stated. Unless your over age 83, with severe and chronic underlying issues such as obesity (+150 to 200+ lbs.) diabetes, heart disease and or cancer etc. while in a hospice or nursing home (over 70% of all mortality is in hospice or nursing home) at the same time as you have a serious case, you will 98 to 99% never know you were sick or have the first symptom, same for everyone you know! My strongest recommendation is that IF your concerned then stay home and do what you think is right for yourself… however, better still is to take some of the “At Home” time and invest in becoming a “Corona Expert”! We have the training to assist you in this at LearnThaiYoga in the Natural Solutions for Corona, Flu and Novel Viral Infections course. I recommend this “Non-Hype” education into an issue that will be affecting your business and life for the far future!

* Consider using your feet and SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (Tool Assisted Energy Line Release), instead of your hands. Consider working most of the session in side position, to maintain more distance between therapist and client, and to keep faces pointing away from each other.

* To what degree it is feasible, ensure plenty of fresh air and sunlight in the treatment area. Consider moving your mat, table or chair outdoors! Fresh air is good for many reasons.

* Make plenty of Colloidal Silver! Spray everything before and after, let “air dry” as a disinfectant. Do the same for your mask, gloves, face! Spray your mat. If you can not make your own silver because you never did invest in a Silver Maker as we taught in class, then you can order one now through the School or by the new “MIMOM Blue Sacred Water” at BeardedMedia.com… Best if you make your own for yourself and your clients!

Vinyl Exercise Mat for Thai Yoga

* I am also recommending that you have a new mat or back up mat that can be cleaned and disinfected between sessions..These are the same type of mats now being used everywhere in Thailand today. Cloth mats are comfy and attractive but they are not hospital grade for cleaning. Here’s a link for the type of Mat we recommend now for professionals. We will be using these type of mats as well here at the Thai Yoga Center for the reasons stated above.  Vinyl Mat: Click Here! These mats come in various sizes and are reasonably priced!

 

Please let us know if you have any specific conditions, questions or challenges not addressed in this notice.

Keep Working! Be the source person for healing you were born to be!

Do you sometimes feel disadvantaged because you don’t have adequate legal resources or the right information? I have a solution for you. Become your own best legal advocate. The law was created for you and you should know how it works and understand how it relates to you, your life and your business.

The Truth About Vaccines!

We all need to know the truth about vaccines.

 

By Dr. Anthony B. James

I published an Article in March of 2011 because of my families history with vaccine injury… To see or read the original article in it’s full length go to The Truth about Vaccines

As much as things change in some ways they remain the same!!

News and November 27th, 2020 Update!

Two New Video’s Everyone Needs to see!


We need to know the Pro’s and Cons. We need to know the risk and any possible rewards. This necessary information is not just for parents! Now that we are in the “Corona” age  amid the shrill tone, the hue and cry for a “universal” vaccine? What is the real story? I do not know all the details as the Vaccine landscape is changing from day to day. I can tell you the CDC, The FDA, The US HHS is not sharing the whole story, not by a long shot. This is going to be a long issue affecting us and our children for decades and we need to know the players, the agenda, the real science from the mouth of the worlds top experts and the risks heading our way so we can make informed decisions on our person, professional, familial and societal position in regard to making choices about the indiscriminate and possibly, forceful mandated vaccination programs on the horizon.

New Course!

Insight Into Vaccines for Thai Yoga, Ayurveda and Healing Arts Practitioners” now available on the LearnThaiYoga.Teachable.com platform! An amazing and comprehensive deep dive into the issues and concerns, the helpful resources to Vaccine issues for the professional therapist, their clients and their family. Start Today!

A little over twenty years ago, when my nephew was only about 2 years old he suffered an irreparable injury from a mandated vaccine cocktail. He was a precocious, active, talkative, walking, climbing, laughing, cuddly baby boy. No illnesses or underlying conditions… i.e. perfect bill of health. My Brother and sister in-law took him to the Pediatrician for his mandated “standard” vaccinations (see graphic)

 

Immediately upon receiving the last shot he started screaming and curled up into a little ball. He screamed as if gasoline had been poured on him and set on fire. Later I learned this type of screaming when in extreme pain has it’s own name… it’s called keening and is typical of sounds we make when in extreme pain before dying of trauma. He could not be consoled. He did eventually stop this continuous screaming … when he entered into a coma. He was in a coma for between 24 and 48 hrs. and when he recovered he was no longer the same child. He no longer could speak, was unresponsive to verbal or any other type of stimulation, would start screaming again if touched and would no longer make eye contact. He rocked and mostly cried. He could no longer crawl or walk.

The first time after this, the first time he offered to be touched and volunteered a hug to me, his uncle, was at my mom’s funeral 20 something years later! I can not say how much I was moved by the simple gesture.

He was diagnosed with severely affected “Rapid Onset” Autism Spectrum disorder and life with an autistic son and nephew began. The Doctors and nurses told us it was a random “act of God”, even though in real time the odds of having a sudden (within minutes) deterioration into a coma after receiving his vaccination, not being related to the vaccination are infinitesimally small. We learned later than not only did this “occasionally” happen, but it happened so often the Federal government has set up a “Vaccine Court” to settle the cases under gag orders. If the truth got out to the average person in the public… no one would risk the life and future of their own child.

I have been researching Vaccines for a solid fifteen years and have learned much. I have learned to hope. After learning that the likely suspect in my nephews Autism was in fact a vaccination, I also learned of research into9 reducing the harmful effects he had suffered and to lead him to be less severely affected and to be able to be restored to some health and productive life. Through primarily changes in diet and the use of supplements including specialized probiotic’s, I am proud to say he is doing terrific. Yes, he still has Autism and issues, but as a millenial Young man he now has a job, hobbies and is quite the savant when it comes to dinosaurs!

I want to pass on the information that I and hundreds of thousands of parents and concerned scientist from both the US and around the world have learned to date about Vaccinations! You are going to have to make informed choices in the not so distant future. I am not saying what you as an individual or parent should do other than if and when you need to make a choice make an informed one.

My friends and associates Ty and Charlene Bollinger have put together an incredible team of scientists, Health and Vaccine experts to create the most up to date, current and accurate presentation on every aspect of vaccines.

Do vaccines have harmful side effects?

How and Why we (The World, The US) are vulnerable to Corona and Novel Viral and other pathogens and HOW TO FIX IT!

SomaVeda® Uncomplicating Corona

by By Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James, Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural MedicineCollege of Ayurveda Medicine, Thai Yoga Center

New Updated! June 12, 2022

The Bad News! So far as of today… the risk of death associated with Covid exposure is proportional to complicating , underlying chronic and or acute pre-existing issues. As I read through the numbers I see the vast majority on morbid outcomes occur for those individuals who ALREADY have severe health issues before becoming infected… Keep in mind the reason why so many are surprised or shocked when people die is because they didn’t consider the underlying, chronic diseases the patient was already dying or at risk of dying of a serious!

Read the whole article…But then try to find a way to wrap your head around the idea that the greatest health risk by far of Covid-19 to you and everyone you know is underlying unresolved heath issues and the chemical prescription drugs used to treat or control them!

Pre and Co-Morbidity! Coupled with deficient nutrition and rampant malnutrition, poor diet consisting of “Franken-foods” GMO’s, Artificial everything, anything, artificial sweeteners, out right malnutrition from common deficiencies of vitamin, minerals, Iodine, vitamin D, C etc. Lack of grounding, lack of sunshine, lack of fresh air, lack or insufficient exercise including load bearing and aerobic, chronic dehydration, insufficient deep sleep, Chronic constipation, Chronic Diarrhea, Gut Dysbiosis, Pre and Pro-biotics out of balance, ELF/ EMF Harmful energy exposure, Radiation from Chernobyl and Fukoshima… Don’t forget the many common Chemical Drugs/ Pharmaceutical that are known to shut down critical immune system functions…

Add in a real infectious vector Corona… Well you get the picture, right? It’s a perfect storm and the big numbers start to make sense!

Add in a real infectious vector Corona… It’s a perfect storm and the big numbers start to make sense!

The Good News! The solution? What we have been saying literally for the past 50 years. Concepts which still appear “novel” to the mainstream medical community and or industry. Conceptes which are labeled at best CAM i.e. complimentary and alternative medicine practices and at worst “Quackery”. Concepts such as Indigenous, traditional, Natural and Holistic Medicine and Health practices which reduce both the frequency, duration and morality of over 90% of the underlying chronic and acute issues which contribute to mortality (Death) including “Physician” caused death by malpractice and prescribing of harmful chemical and toxic drugs.

These CAM practices come by many names: Ayurveda, Traditional Thai Ayurveda- Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) including Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Yunani Medicine, Hilot Medicine, Naturopathy and Nature Cure Medicine, Monastic Medicine and or Religious Therapeutics, Native American Medicine, Herbology, Aroma-therapy, Acupressure, Light therapy, PEMF (Pulsed Electro-magnetic Therapy), Homeopathy, Chelation Therapy, Nutrition Therapy, Health Coach etc. These are all recognized by The Who, provide care for billions of people to some degree or another in the world today. What these all share in common is that they provide relatively safe, predictable and functional medicinal outcomes towards reducing or eliminating underlying chronic and or acute health issues with little or NO risk of associated death. They share aims for example to KEEP YOU OUT OF THE Hospital, the emergency room.

Short Term, What Do I DO? Sixteen Helpful Suggestions from the Doctor!

What to do until or while your waiting for an appointment for counseling or treatment protocol from your chosen provider?

  1. In many states “social Distancing” guidelines and restrictions have recently been found to be unconstitutional and not based on science or sound medicine practice! Check your local and state guidelines to see if you live in a state where the Governor’s mandates have been found to be illegal and unscientific and or current status.
  2. Do NOT wear a mask in public… It is not scientifically valid and for many causes far more harm than good! (See Video: Why are We Wearing Mask?) If you must wear a mask… Clean and re-sterilize your mask regularly: Wash with hot soapy water, rinse, dry in regular over at 130degrees for at least 20 min. Spray with Colloidal Silver and let air dry. However! Do Not mistake this recommendation as a “Health Recommendation”! It is NOT! Wearing a Mask, any mask for a prolonged time causes Hypoxia and oxygen starvation which begins immediately to cause harm…Watch this video… Truth Bombs! Rant #2: Why Are We Wearing Mask?
  3. If you have a fever Do Not Go Out… Do Not Socialize and observe a voluntary stay at home. There are many reason other than Corona to have a fever, but for the care of those you love stay at home if you have a fever. This should be common sense.
  4. Wash Your Hands before and after each session… There are many guides to this now that everyone is an expert! If unsure if your doing it right… go to YouTube and search!
  5. Stay Healthy, drink plenty of water, eat right, get rid of the junk food, go outside, get plenty of sunshine, be happy , have some fun, enjoy your family and your pets!
  6. Take your supplements! Now is not the time to be slack! If you need to order or restock, do so now as delivery times could be slower for a while. Take those minerals, Iodine, Vitamen C, D, Zinc. Take your probiotics. Ask about our Ayurveda, Chinese medicine and Herbal Medicine support recommendation’s!
  7. Manage your diabetes by eating a mostly plant based diet. If necessary take a fortified meal supplement with digestive enzymes.
  8. Eat more Sprouts!
  9. Use an Infrared Sauna or Infrared Lamp, Bio-Mat etc.
  10. DO NOT take any drug as protection AGAINST infection! Remember ALL Chemical Drugs and or Vaccines have serious adverse effects! Don’t take any drug unless you know what those side effects, even death, are and are making an informed decision.
  11. Obtain a Nebulizer for both O2 therapy and or Colloidal Silver if need be.
  12. Work on your emotional, mental and or psychiatric health and stay balanced! Use your BET/ Tapping/ EFT/ Energy Psychology to stay healthy and happy on the inside.
  13. Let go of the minute by minute social diarrhrea and endless news updates… Once you know what your dealing with and where the real risk are coming from, then that is your point of focus! One more statistic is NOT going to assist you in either not becoming sick or dying of Corina!
  14. Spend time with attractive and positive people! Phone, video, yelling over the fence! However, you can do it. Socializing is also a necessary part of an over all health plan.
  15. Get real help for your pain issues! Back pain, neck pain, Knee pain… whatever it is there is a CAM Provider who can follow a safe protocol and treat your pain. Don’t suffer in silence because you don’t have to.
  16. Make that appointment for a personal consultation. Most good SomaVeda® Thai Yoga, Ayurveda, TCM, Chiropracters, Holistic Health Coaches and Nutritionist Counselors are really busy right now, so you likely will have to plan ahead.
  17. Schedule and start a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Protocol with an NAIC Authorized Professionally Certified Professional to both reduce underlying health issues and build support for proper immune system function, to de-compress, de-stress and bring a joy for living back into your life!

In fact many hospitals and emergency rooms are turning sick people who are not severe and obviously infection (option) as it is. So where are these people, where are you and your family and or patient to turn to at this time? I say… same place recommended last year, and the year before… US! The holistic CAM provider is more your resource now than ever before. We are everywhere and in reality not hard to find. Seek out your provider and get cracking with some helpful counseling and therapy today. Don’t continue to procrastinate resolving the underlying health issues that yesterday might not have seemed so important but which today could contribute to taking your life!

Please note: I am not going to attempt to list all of the sources here! It’s overwhelming. There are literally thousands of scholarly and or scientific literature describing th morbidity and co-morbidity or these complication health issues.

Primary Immune disorder:

Usually inherited or caused by problems in genes of cells in the immune system, Characterized by infections that are severe, recurrent, and challenging to treat, More common than cystic fibrosis, affecting 1 in 1,200 people in the US:

AIDS/ HIV

Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID): People with CVID have decreased levels of antibodies (immunoglobulins) in the blood and are therefore more likely to get infections.

X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA): People with XLA—an inherited form of PI—have very few B cells, which are specialized white blood cells that help protect the body against  infection.

Immune globulin G (IgG) Subclass Deficiency: IgG is divided into 4 subclasses: IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4. People are said to have an IgG subclass deficiency when they lack or have very  low levels of 1 or more IgG subclasses, but their total IgG levels are normal.

Hyper-IgM (HIGM) Syndrome: People with HIGM syndrome have an excess of IgM and reduced levels of other immunoglobulins, including IgG and immune globulin A (IgA).

Selective IgA Deficiency: One of the most common types of PI in Caucasians, selective IgA deficiency, often goes undiagnosed in some people because they are never  sick enough to be seen by a doctor. Others, however, may develop a variety of challenges that need medical attention.

Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID): SCID, a serious form of PI, is a rare syndrome with multiple genetic causes.

Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome: Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a PI disease that affects both the T and B lymphocytes.

DiGeorge Syndrome: DiGeorge syndrome is a PI disease caused by abnormal formation of certain tissues during fetal development. The defect may affect the thymus  gland and impair production of T lymphocytes.

Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T): A-T is a PI disease that affects a number of organs.

 

Pharmaceutical Drug  Issues:

A) Drugs that cause side effects that can exacerbate mortality…

B) Drugs that either are known to cause or to increase risk of induced Pulmonary Disease:

C) Types of lung problems or diseases that may be caused by medicines include, but are not limited to:

          Drug-induced interstitial lung disease

Symptoms of Drug-induced interstitial lung disease: dry cough and shortness of breath due to interstitial lung disease, an imaging study may be ordered. A “CT” scan of the chest would show changes (reticular or ground-glass opacities). Pulmonary function tests may also be ordered by your physician, which can show moderate-to-severe decreases in carbon monoxide diffusion capacity.

Sound familiar?

  • Allergic reactions — asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, or eosinophilic pneumonia
  • Bleeding into the lung air sacs, called alveoli (alveolar hemorrhage)
  • Swelling and inflamed tissue in the main passages that carry air to the lungs (bronchitis)
  • Damage to lung tissue (interstitial fibrosis)
  • Drugs that cause the immune system to mistakenly attack and destroy healthy body tissue, such as drug-induced lupus erythematosus
  • Granulomatous lung disease — a type of inflammation in the lungs
  • Inflammation of the lung air sacs (pneumonitis or infiltration)
  • Lung vasculitis (inflammation of lung blood vessels)
  • Lymph node swelling
  • Swelling and irritation (inflammation) of the chest area between the lungs (mediastinitis)
  • Abnormal buildup of fluid in the lungs (pulmonary edema)
  • Buildup of fluid between the layers of tissue that line the lungs and chest cavity (pleural effusion)

Many medicines and substances are known to cause lung disease in some people. These include:

  • Antibiotics, such as nitrofurantoin and sulfa drugs
  • Heart medicines, such as amiodarone
  • Chemotherapy drugs such as bleomycin, cyclophosphamide, and methotrexate
  • Street drugs

According to Merk…

Drug-induced pulmonary disease is not a single disorder, but rather a common clinical problem in which a patient without previous pulmonary disease develops respiratory symptoms, chest x-ray changes, deterioration of pulmonary function, histologic changes, or several of these findings in association with drug therapy. Over 150 drugs or categories of drugs have been reported to cause pulmonary disease; the mechanism is rarely known, but many drugs are thought to provoke a hypersensitivity response. Some drugs (eg, nitrofurantoin) can cause different injury patterns in different patients.

Depending on the drug, drug-induced syndromes can cause interstitial fibrosis, organizing pneumonia, asthma, noncardiogenic pulmonary edema, pleural effusionspulmonary eosinophiliapulmonary hemorrhage, or veno-occlusive disease (see Table: Substances With Toxic Pulmonary Effects).

List of Drugs that cause Lung and Heart Injury

Amiodarone is the most common heart drug that causes pulmonary abnormalities. Used for the treatment of atrial fibrillation, pulmonary toxicity affects as many as 6% of individuals on amiodarone. Among these cases, fatality rates range from 10-20%. Eek. A safer, similar medication used for atrial fib is Multaq (dronedarone) which is more expensive than amiodarone but may be a better first choice given the lower risk of lung injury.

Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) is a commonly prescribed antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections. Nitrofurantoin has been linked to both acute and chronic lung injury, believed to be a hypersensitivity reaction from the drug.

Methotrexate (Rheumatrex) is used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis as well as other serious skin conditions and carries a known risk of acute interstitial pneumonia.

Biologic agents. Cetuximab (Erbitux), bevacizumab (Avastin), trastuzumab (Herceptin) and alemtuzumab (Lemtrada) are just a few of many in this newer class of medications that have been reported to cause drug induced interstitial lung disease. Again, these are medications used for serious illnesses like cancer and accepting the rare risk of interstitial lung disease may be “worth” it as you will be closely monitored.

Seizure medications. Phenytoin (Dilantin) and carbamazepine (Tegretol)—which is also used to treat pain from trigeminal neuralgia or shingles—are both known to cause drug-induced acute interstitial pneumonitis.

Aspirin and other NSAIDS (ibuprofennaproxen) may cause acute pulmonary hypersensitivity reactions which may occur within the first week of treatment—or as late as three years after first exposure.

Sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim (Bactrim) is a sulfonamide-containing antibiotic used for bacterial infections. It is a rare cause of drug-induced interstitial lung disease.

Hydralazine is used for the treatment of high blood pressure and heart failure, and cases of nonspecific interstitial pneumonias have been reported.

Cholesterol medications aka “Statins.” This is tricky because while drug-induced interstitial lung disease has been reported with most statins including pravastatin (Pravachol), simvastatin (Zocor), and atorvastatin (Lipitor), they have also been shown in studies to be associated with lower mortality in people with interstitial lung disease and pulmonary fibrosis.

PLEASE NOTE: The above is NOT comprehensive. A list of possible drugs causing and or exacerbating would easily run into the thousands of possible suspects. I personally interviewed a past VP Pharmacology of CVS Pharmacy, who told me emphatically it is scientifically and procedurally impossible to calculate the side effects, adverse reactions and co-morbidity of three or more drug simultaneously.

Considering that the average person in the US (48.4%) takes at least One drug per month more than 36.6% of person in the US take between 3 and 5 prescription chemical drugs per month (CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/drug-use-therapeutic.htm) it doesn’t take a science degree to see that 100% of all of these are likely to have one or more adverse effects and 36.6 % will likely have severe and complicated, un predictable list of adverse effects just from the drugs alone.

A) Profiles for prescription drugs… https://hpi.georgetown.edu/rxdrugs/#

Let’s not forget the OTC Meds, NSAIDS (Non Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs) etc. like the recently banned “Zantac” which also have a huge list of adverse effects including death.

Add GMO’s and Artificial sweeteners no to this growing list of factors which can cause or exacerbate co-morbity with … well… anything! Including with Covid.

List of side effects, adverse effects of Artificial Sweeteners: 

Studies have suggested an association between the use of non-nutritive sweeteners and health outcomes (such as body weight, diabetes, cancer, and oral health)… See earlier in this article references for these specific issues relating to co-morbidity!

According to Dr. Osborne: “Current research is limited on the beneficial effects and the long-term health risks associated with the ingestion of artificial sweeteners. However, cyclamate (an early artificial sweetener), was banned by the FDA in 1970 due to carcinogenic risks in experimental animals. With this ban, the artificial sweetener market took a hit. Consumers were left scared knowing there could be a cancer risk associated with ingestion of artificial sweeteners. Shortly after, manufacturers replaced one toxic artificial sweetener with new equally toxic sweetener. Many consumers report headaches, dizziness, rashes, bloating, nausea, diarrhea, and digestive problems after ingesting artificial sweeteners. These side effects could build up over time and cause serious long term diseases with regular consumption of these processed sugars.

Currently, the great debate is between the FDA and scientists. In a study determining the effects of saccharin, sucralose and aspartame consumption in both mice and humans, the ingestion of artificial sweeteners altered microbial metabolic pathways6. Studies indicated glucose intolerance was elevated due to changes in gut microbiota. Gut health has to be optimal in order to maintain a healthy immune system and normal metabolic functions in our body.  Such metabolic functions include maintaining normal blood pressure, blood glucose, and cholesterol levels. More studies need to be conducted, but scientists believe that there is also a relationship between sweeteners and certain cancers, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism, and systemic lupus. 

In numerous studies observing weight loss with the ingestion of artificial sweeteners, there is not enough proof that consumption is beneficial in weight management2. Studies are able to show short-term weight loss, but lack any long term weight loss results. However, consumers are still consuming artificial sweeteners in order to reduce their caloric intake with the intent of weight loss based on physician’s recommendations.

Artificial Sweeteners can also develop into an addiction. These processed sugars are 200-13,000 times sweeter than regular sugar5. Over time, the consumption of these artificial sweeteners can alter taste buds and result in a constant craving for foods that are overly sweet. More nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables become less palatable, so less nutritious sugar-free substitutes and carbohydrates are consumed instead. Consequently, risks for nutrient deficiencies and weight gain increase.”
