Lent and other major Spring celebrations are times to renew with detoxification. How to support health during and after antibiotics, how to cleanse from toxic environment, people, foods, and stress.
This podcast as Mikefm.ca covered 7 acupressure points to massage to help detoxify and strengthen major detox organs – liver, kidney, lungs. Also Yunnan Paiyao/Yunnan Baiyao is described to increase healing of wounds and surgery. https://soundcloud.com/1051/mg-live-alternative-medicine-with-letha-hadady-2015-08-17
The liver is one of our main detox organs. According to traditional Chinese medicine it “makes and stores” blood. Certainly liver enzymes are vital for heart and circulation health and well-being. Keeping the liver and blood clean can help prevent chronic pain (arthritis, migraine etc) from acidity and toxins. It can improve complexion and mood. Leech saliva contains valuable enzymes to detoxify and tone internal organs, reduce blood poisons, clotting, harmful cholesterol and reduce many other chronic problems. Leech therapy was popular before antibiotic drugs and has made a comeback during surgery in modern hospitals. This video shows my second liver treatment at SilesianHolisticCenter in Greenpoint Brooklyn with Andrew Plucinski. Phone 646 460 4212 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9lxW6uZGfg
Leech saliva is a natural blood thinner and pain killer used to dissolve plaque buildup in major blood vessels near the heart. IT is used during open heart surgery and to speed healing for surgery when replacing severed limbs. It can be used for shrinking varicose veins, reducing arthritis pain and migraines. Leech therapy is gaining some popularity among the alternative healing community. Andrew Plucinski, H.H.P., is interviewed by Letha Hadady, D.Ac.

Many medical sources agree that carpal tunnel syndrome may result from a genetic hitch – a wrist small enough to pinch the medial nerve in the carpal tunnel or from work involving constant jarring like road work with one of those machines that break up concrete. How many of your friends do road work? Come on, get serious. We all know carpal tunnel pain most often results from computer use. Kids who start using a computer mouse at 6 may develop carpal tunnel pain and numbness of the thumb and first three fingers in one or both hands by age 12. Main symptoms (hand pain, swelling, redness, numbness and sometimes burning pain) usually feel worse when talking on the phone (holding up your hands), using a pen or chopsticks, or very late or early in the morning around 5AM when adrenal energy is at a low ebb.
After surgery you can expect that your body needs time to adjust. You may have new pains because you are using muscles in a new way. Sitting, typing and talking on the phone your hands may go numb. Your neck can get stiff. If you have high cholesterol and heart issues, circulation is challenged, which can increase numbness in the hands and arms. Or it may just be carpal tunnel syndrome. See the illustration. Do your hands feel hot, numb and painful? Heat indicates a pinched nerve. There is a pain treatment that works very well removing the pain and heat from carpal tunnel syndrome in my new book Naturally Pain Free using a cold laser on acupuncture points at the fingertips and on the palm side of the hand.
Take six months if you can to prepare your body for surgery. That means using natural remedies that enhance blood production, healthy red blood cells and bone marrow, and increase energy and immunity.
The hip on the right side of the photo was replaced July 12th, five weeks ago. The total hip replacement is made of a titanium metal femur ball and the socket is metal coated with polyurethane a thick plastic to absorb shocks. It looks like I have a Cadillac in my hip swept wings and all. The hip on the left side (actually my right hip) will be replaced next week. I have no pain whatsoever in the operated hip and a 5 inch scar that is nicely disappearing. Notice the rough edge at the ball and socket of the hip on the left side – that is bone on bone with no joint left to cushion my walk.
