Crystals: Powerful Tools of Transformation for Ushering in the New Age

July 11th, 2010

Have you noticed how time seems to be speeding up? What you did just weeks ago seems like months, and it feels like we’re on a roller coaster, mostly on the way down! There may be a “logical” reason for this, as we approach the culmination phase of what the creators of the Mayan calendar might have called “the end of time”. Over a thousand years ago, they mapped out a calendar, using their knowledge of astronomy and astrology (the two were one and the same in the Western world until not long ago), which describes a time line from the creation of the Universe (Big Bang theory), some 15 billion years ago, to our present time, in the year 2012. The system is fairly straightforward, stating that from the beginning, time has been divided into 13 ages which all culminate in 2012, but in each one the speed of time is 20 times faster than the preceding one, and the length of the age is 20 times shorter that its predecessor.

What does this all mean for us? Since 1999 we have been in the second to the last age, which lasts only 12 years. During this time, the digital era has taken us for an incredible roller coaster ride, with technological advances being made faster than we can keep up with them. In the age preceding this one, which lasts some 250 years or so, the advances were much slower to come about, but still much faster than the age preceding it. Before that, things happened at an even slower rate, and the age lasted about 5100 years. This is all to say,
that we are natural beings in a natural world, responding to the natural unfolding of a time line that was started 15 or 16 billion years ago, and that was mapped out by the Mayan people, possibly to make sure that we, in this crucial time, are aware of this and will act consciously rather than react to a world that seems to have gone crazy.

In more practical terms, this signifies that we, human beings across the Earth, are in the middle of a process of time acceleration, and time, as the fourth dimension, is affecting everything that is happening to us and to the Earth. As we move into the final age, which starts in November of 2010 and lasts until October of 2011, time will accelerate again and things will happen 20 times faster than they are now.
The natural and man-made disasters that we have been witnessing in the past 12 years may become even more intense, and certain beings who want to control the outcome of this time line will trigger traumatic events in order to keep the power that they have been mongering for the past 6000 years. But this does not mean the end of the world,
quite to the contrary. I am not a soothsayer, but I know deep within me that we are at the dawn of a new age, and that the way to usher in this age is to embrace the values it embodies, such as brotherly love, compassion and peace towards all beings, human or not.
The raising of the level of consciousness of the general population is inevitable, and anyone who tries to manipulate the unfolding of the world events to their egotistical advantage, will need to come to terms with their inner self – and if they resist the tsunami of awareness
taking place on the planet at this moment, they will be swept away into the vast ocean of human awakening in spite of their will to control the world.

How can we, as individuals, survive the onslaught of craziness, and step into the fruition of our spiritual awakening?

First, the less we “buy into” the doom and gloom end-of-the-world scenarios that the powers-that-be would like us to believe, the better. Our energy is needed to build healthy, happy societies, not to cower in fear at what “might” happen, according to the “authorities” claiming to have a direct line to a future dictated by the results of a supposed apocalypse.

Second, it is absolutely vital that we each become keenly aware of what it is that we came here to do, and then start doing it, if we haven’t already done so. If you feel you are languishing away in a job
that has no real interest to you other than paying the bills, and your energy is down because of it, by all means, get away from it. We all need to have activities and interests that nourish our creativity and motivate us to move in a positive way, and if what we are doing is taking that away, it is not serving our best interest. As long as you open up to your inner self and learn to trust what it is telling you, you will be guided to the place/job/activity that is best suited for your talents. Easier said than done? Yes and no. The only real thing preventing you from doing this is your own resistance to change. So yes, it’s not always easy to go against your belief system, and if that belief system is serving you well, fine. But if it is making you believe
that the only way to survive in this world is to have a job that you don’t like, and that you’re lucky to have it because you have no real talents, and because the economy is so bad, etc., etc., then it is not serving you.

Third, we need to learn to love ourselves for who we are. No matter what “flaws” we think we have, be they physical or emotional handicaps, a crooked nose or a bad temper, they are part of us, and have served us in some way, even if we can’t seem to figure out how. When we love ourselves for who we are, those parts that we held in contempt for so long are finally recognized, and we become whole again. Then, we are able to see what gifts they brought us, and love them for that.

Crystals, one of Nature’s perfect creations, are amazing tools to use in our quest for self-awareness.They allow the transformation process to be accelerated because of the nature of their particular molecular makeup. Because of their structure, crystals pull low-frequency vibrations into their field and change their frequency through a
process called resonance. This is similar to when a musical note is played in a room full of stringed instruments, and the strings of all the instruments tuned to that frequency start to vibrate. The frequencies of the vibrations that are emitted by the crystal from its point or apex are higher and more balanced than the original vibration, and they cause the other vibrations present to start vibrating at higher frequencies. This is called entrainment.

Crystals can be used in many ways, and most people are familiar with putting them on or around the body, on the chakras or energy centers and in different strategic places around the body. I was taught by a French meta-physicist, 20 some years ago, how to use them to interact with the Human Energy Field in order to promote healing and well-being. I have since modified the techniques I learned and adapted
them to my own process, which involves the use of Medical Intuition to assess the physical and spiritual bodies of the individual. I then use the crystals to balance and energize the chakras, charge the actual organs and physiological systems of the body, align the spiritual bodies, transform “negative” energy into positive, repair energy leaks, etc. This process is akin to psychic surgery in many ways. Just one crystal therapy session can be a serious boost toward re-alignment with
your inner self and the realization of your dreams.

I am available to see clients in my new office in Trolley Square, in a space that I share with several holistic health practitioners, called “Healing Spaces”. If you are interested in having a consciousness-boosting, energy-giving, health-promoting session with me, please give me a call at (302) 507-6548, or email me at Also, you can visit my website at

Natural Allergy Solutions

June 6th, 2010

Dr. Martin Orimenko, DC, ND, FIACA – Live Well Holistic Health Center

It seems like every other person suffers from allergies in the Spring time in most areas of the country. It can make you absolutely miserable and dramatically lower your quality of life for weeks at a time.
Helping people with allergies has always been a significant part of my practice and I’ve learned a lot over my 20 years in natural medicine.

My basic message to readers is that “the outside reflects the inside.” In other words, you will be susceptible to pollens, cat dander, dust, etc. that are outside your body, to the degree that your insides, namely your mucous membranes, are clogged, full of mucous, or otherwise imbalanced. The mucous membranes are the lining of your
alimentary canal that runs from mouth to anus. The primary problem area is the intestinal lining. This area is a perfect breeding ground for yeast (Candida albicans, a type of fungus). With things like antibiotics,
birth control pills, steroid drugs, tap water and a sugary diet all contributing to their growth, it’s no wonder it is such a prevalent health issue. Yeast overgrowth also directly contributes to chronic sinus infections, chronic colds and bronchitis, indigestion, brain fog, low energy and lethargy, and indirectly to a long list of other conditions.

The solution is balancing your intestinal tract by doing a little cleansing of a very specific nature for a few weeks. Restricting the foods that grow yeast and taking a good antifungal (natural, not Nystatin) can make a world of difference not only for allergies but for all the conditions mentioned above. And the effects are permanent, notwithstanding doing all the things to encourage yeast growth again.
It’s not the only way to help allergies but in my experience the majority of people derive enormous benefit from this type of cleansing.

I would be delighted to help anyone you know who is suffering from allergies. In an initial Holistic Health Visit, I’d use Kinesiologic Analysis to determine the best anitfungal for you, and in addition to giving you a full consultation and treatment to address your allergies, we’d get you set up with a cleansing program (typically 3 weeks, though it differs for everyone) to address your systems and the root of the problem.

There’s no reason to continue to suffer with allergies! Call us at 610.896.1554 and schedule an appointment today to start feeling better in as soon as a week from when you start a cleanse program specialized to your needs.

Making Sense of Intuitive Eating

April 21st, 2010

By Heather Rudalavage, Registered Dietician

One of the most challenging pieces of the the intuitive eating approach is that people don’t see how it can work. People don’t trust themselves. They believe they won’t be able to stop eating chocolate or cake or pizza. Maybe it’s because the diet message is so pervasive in our society, or maybe we are just narcissistic in nature, but it continues to astonish me how much my clients rely on external sources to know what, when and how much to eat. Odd because hunger is a physiological response similar to breathing or having to pee. When we visit the restroom, we don’t say, “did I pee too much?” When we take a breath, we don’t say, “it’s not time to breathe yet”. But clients ask me all the time, “how much should I eat?” Or, “I am hungry all the time.”

I just finished reading a wonderful book called, “The Only Diet There Is”, among emphasizing that loving yourself and forgiveness, is the best diet there is, she also addresses the impact of guilt and negativity on our weight. Science may have not been able to prove this exactly, yet, but it seems that our body’s react more strongly to how we feel about the food we eat than the actual content of the food. Astonishing! If we think the food we are eating is “fattening” than our body will treat it as thus.

So, I just can not emphasize enough, the answer lies within. If you drop the dieting mentality and the voices in your head that tell you that a particular food is bad, you will be able to tune in and when you tune in, your body will tell you what, when and where to eat. Sometimes your body may say, chocolate and sometimes it may say a tuna melt, but whatever your body says, listen, because it is the right choice for you at that moment.

Here is the link to a nice article about guilt and intuitive eating : article

60 Hospitals Cancelled Due to New Health Law

April 12th, 2010

by JohnDennis2010 on Mon, 04/12/2010

( – The new health care overhaul law – that promised increased access and efficiency in health care – will prevent doctor-owned hospitals from adding more rooms and more beds.

These hospitals are advertised as less bureaucratic and more focused on doctor-patient decision making. However, larger corporate hospitals say doctor-owned facilities discriminate in favor of high-income patients and refer business to themselves.

The new rules single out physician-owned hospitals, making new physician-owned projects ineligible to receive payments for Medicare and Medicaid patients.

Existing doctor-owned hospitals will be grandfathered in to get government funds for patients but must seek permission from the Department of Health and Human Services to expand.

The get the department’s permission, a doctor-owned hospital must be in a county where population growth is 150 percent of the population growth of the state in the last five years; impatient admissions must be equal to all hospitals located in the county; the bed occupancy rate must not be greater than the state average, and it must be located in a state where hospital bed capacity is less than the national average.

These rules are under Title VI, Section 6001 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The provision is titled “Physician Ownership and Other Transparency – Limitations on Medicare Exceptions to the Prohibition on Certain Physician Referral for Hospitals.”

More than 60 doctor-owned hospitals across the country that were in the development stage will be canceled, said Molly Sandvig, executive director of Physician Hospitals of America (PHA).

“That’s a lot of access to communities that will be denied,” Sandvig told “The existing hospitals are greatly affected. They can’t grow. They can’t add beds. They can’t add rooms. Basically, it stifles their ability to change and meet market needs. This is really an unfortunate thing as well, because we are talking about some of the best hospitals in the country.”

The organization says physician-owned hospitals have higher patient satisfaction, greater control over medical decisions for patients and doctor, better quality care and lower costs. Further, physician-owned hospitals have an average 4-1 patient-to-nurse ratio, compared to the national average of 8-1 for general hospitals.

Further, these 260 doctor-owned hospitals in 38 states provide 55,000 jobs, $2.4 billion in payroll and pay $509 million in federal taxes, according to the PHA.

In one ironic aspect, President Barack Obama’s two largest legislative achievements clashed. The Hammond Community Hospital in North Hammond, Ind., got $7 million in bond money from the federal stimulus act in 2009. It will likely be scrapped because of the new rules on physician-owned hospitals, according to the Post-Tribune newspaper in Merrillville, Ind.

These hospitals have long been a target of the American Hospital Association, which represents corporate-owned hospitals as well as non-profit hospitals.

An AHA study from 2008 says that physician-owned hospitals “lessen patient access to emergency and trauma case;” “damage the financial health of full-service hospitals and lead to cutbacks in service;” “are not more efficient than full service community hospitals;” “use physician-owners to steer patients;” “cherry pick the most profitable patients;” and “provide limited or no emergency services.”

Meanwhile, one AHA fact sheet asserts that physician-owned orthopedic and surgical hospitals costs are 20 percent to 30 percent higher than average hospitals. Further, these hospitals just lead to higher profits for doctors, the AHA asserts.

“We don’t cherry pick patients, period, end of story. We take patients based on their need for care, not on their ability to pay,” Sandvig said. “It [the health care reform] puts control outside the hand of physicians and patients and into bureaucrats’ hands really.

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) is one of many organizations suing to have the law declared unconstitutional on the grounds that the federal government cannot compel someone to buy a product.

While the provision on physician hospitals is not part of the lawsuit, it will affect it, Dr. said Jane Orient, AAPS executive director.

“If the law is declared unconstitutional, then the prohibition is part of the bill,” Orient told “There are vested interests in getting rid of physician-owned hospitals because they do a better job and are more affordable.”

The provision in the legislation and efforts opposing these hospitals can be simply explained from Sandvig’s view.

“It’s anti-competitive. I think it’s pretty clear,” Sandvig said. “We’re a model that makes sense that’s affecting innovation. We’re trying to do something better than it has been done. Anytime you do that, there’s going to be a clash between the existing and the new. Unfortunately, it’s a real David and Goliath battle.”

Allergies and A Hidden Cause

April 6th, 2010

By Dr. Martin Orimenko

Here’s an interesting story for you.  This happened a number of years ago, after I had gotten very proficient at curing patients’ allergies, especially to environmental allergens such as dust, pollen and mold, but also including animal dander.  A woman in her 30’s came in to my clinic complaining of serious allergy symptoms related to cats.  What made her so driven to cure this allergy was the fact that her boyfriend owned two cats and he was very attached to them.
I was expecting to put her on a specific cleanse as I did with most of my allergy patients because dietary cleansing is a key component of re-balancing the immune system and altering the allergic response.  But because I treat holistically and always try to discover any and all contributing factors to a patients’ condition, and knowing that ‘anything can cause anything’, I tested for emotional related factors. 
    Sure enough, I uncovered the fact that her allergies were somehow tied in to the emotion of grief. When I questioned her she affirmed that she had recently lost a friend and was in fact experiencing grief.  The emotional clearing technique I utilize, NeuroEmotional Technnique, traces emotional states back to their inception, which for her happened to be an event that occured when she was 8 years old.  Again I questioned her about an experience of grief she may have had around age 8.  After thinking for a moment, her eyes got big, her mouth opened, and with a surprised look she said, “That was how old I was when I watched my kitty get run over by a truck…she was my best friend.”  We did the clearing technique for that trauma and, long story made short, her allergies vanished.  No cleanse, no herbal or other supplements, no change in diet, no acupuncture, and no chiropractic adjustment.      

I always remember that symptoms can be misleading, and because of this, I seek to find and treat the hidden causes!
