Alkaline Herbal Medicine: Reverse Disease and Heal the Electric Body
Alkaline Herbal Medicine gives insight into many of the herbs used to reverse disease in Dr. Sebi’s African Bio Mineral Balance. It covers scientifically supported properties, preparation, doses and dosages, and how to combine herbs. It addresses alkaline foods on the Dr. Sebi nutritional guide, and their chemical affinity with and support of the electric body. The natural order in life designed the body to be healthy and heal under the right conditions. These conditions are programmed into the DNA of Homo sapiens, whose base DNA makeup is the African genome. Diets centered on the consumption of natural alkaline plant foods and ample exposure to the sun supported the healthy expression of the African genome. The environment of Africa, and environments similar to Africa, produced life that developed with a complete and balanced electrical structure. The plant life that grew in these environments grew under optimal conditions in nutrient rich soil under year long exposure to the sun. The resulting chemical makeup of these natural alkaline plants protected them from environmental stresses. Africans originally ate diets centered on the consumption of these plants, like the great apes of Africa, and the programming of the African genome used the protective nature of these plants’ nutrients to support its vibrancy. A scientific model supports the idea that Africans migrated out of Africa hundreds of thousands of years ago into the less hospitable environments of Europe and Asia. These environments didn’t support the healthy expression of the African genome and resulted in the mutation of the gene and the development of the Neanderthal of Europe and Denisovan of East Asia. Science has linked diseases like lupus, Crohn’s disease, and type 2 diabetes to the Neanderthal gene. The Neanderthals, who inhabited the Neandertal caves in Germany, ate a diet centered on the consumption of meat. The combination of their meat-centered diet and adverse relationship with the sun led to the development of dis-ease in the body. Now, the meat-centered diet is being globalized and is spreading disease throughout the world. An alkaline plant-centered diet and the use of alkaline herbal medicine naturally support the healthy expression of the African genome in all people, and reverses chronic disease. Pharmaceutical medicine is built on the power of medicinal herbs because around fifty percent of its drugs are derived from herbs. The issue is industry has strategically conditioned people to forget about the healing power of natural alkaline herbs. I dedicate this book in the memory of Alfredo Bowman lovingly known as Dr. Sebi. He helped us to remember that natural alkaline herbs and plant foods support the healthy expression of the African genome that is in all people. He did this by sharing his African Bio Mineral Balance methodology. Categories: herbal remedies, naturopathy, healing, herbs, herbal medicine

Bone Marrow Nei Kung
Most Westerners believe that a daily physical exercise program helps slow the aging process. Yet those whose bodies appear most physically fit on the outside often enjoy only the same life span as the average nonathletic person. It is the internal organs and glands that nourish every function of the body, and it is the bone marrow that nourishes and rejuvenates the organs and glands through the production of blood. By focusing only on the muscles without cultivating the internal organs, bones, and blood, the Western fitness regimen can ultimately exhaust the internal system.
In Bone Marrow Nei Kung Master Mantak Chia reveals the ancient mental and physical Taoist techniques used to “regrow” bone marrow, strengthen the bones, and rejuvenate the organs and glands. An advanced practice of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, Bone Marrow Nei Kung was developed as a way to attain the “steel body” coveted in the fields of Chinese medicine and martial arts. This method of absorbing energy into the bones revives the bone marrow and reverses the effects of aging through the techniques of bone breathing, bone compression, and sexual energy massage, which stimulates the hormonal production that helps prevent osteoporosis. Also included is extensive information on chi weight lifting and the practice of “hitting” to detoxify the body.

Chi Nei Tsang and Microcurrent Theory
An illustrated guide to combining the new healing modality of microcurrent therapy with Chi Nei Tsang energy massage * Explains how microcurrent therapy harmonizes the body's cells, regenerates the nervous system, and boosts the body's natural self-healing abilities * Provides illustrated, step-by-step instructions for using microcurrent therapy during massage and for the basic techniques of Chi Nei Tsang massage * Shows how combining these therapies can relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and help specific ailments, such as arthritis, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and shingles Each cell of the body is animated by a highly organized and intelligent bioenergy, or bioelectricity. When cells are damaged, they become electrically imbalanced. Recently it has been discovered that microcurrent therapy--applying low-amperage electrical currents to the body--harmonizes the cells, returns them to a normal state of cellular activity, and boosts the body's natural self-healing abilities. Combining this innovative new modality with ancient Taoist healing methods, Mantak Chia and Aisha Sieburth detail how to integrate microcurrent therapy with Chi Nei Tsang energy massage for pain relief, self-healing, and rejuvenation. The authors explain how microcurrent has a regenerative effect on the nervous system, helping to increase energy levels, promote circulation of blood and lymph, relieve acute or chronic pain, restore pH balance of the blood, balance hormone function, and improve the immune system. Its effects on circulation extend to all the body's vessels, tissues, and cells as well as enhancing toxin elimination and reducing inflammation. The authors show how microcurrent therapy pairs extraordinarily well with Chi Nei Tsang massage. The microcurrent, flowing through the hands of the massage practitioner into the body, enhances the effects of the massage within the nerves and tissues, making it easier to harmonize the flow of energy, release tensions, and dissolve energetic knots in the meridians. With illustrated, step-by-step instructions, the authors explain how to use microcurrent therapy during massage and describe the basic techniques of CNT massage. They also show how CNT microcurrent therapy is beneficial for general physical health and for a host of specific ailments, such as nerve pain, arthritis, sciatica, fibromyalgia, shingles, headaches, slow-healing wounds, and tendon and ligament pain.
