Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for August 15, 2006

Woke up at 4:30 this morning and I feel great. No vibration! So I did what any person would do at 4:30 in the morning: Googling! I figure this is a great time to take my magnesium on an empty stomach so I try an experiment. I’ll try the calcium/magnesium supplement with the high absorption just to see what effect it has. I’ve read that your not supposed to take calcium if you have a magnesium deficiency.

I’ve always been curious why the aromatherapy oils from the iridologist worked to reduce the vibrations. She told me that the oils have their own kind of vibration and helps to balance the body’s natural vibration.

Let’s see what doctor Google says:

Essential oils intended for aromatherapy massage need to be diluted in a natural base oil such as olive, almond or sunflower seed – preferably labeled ‘unrefined’ or ‘cold pressed’.

If a vegetable oil is not labeled as such, it is certain to be a highly refined product extracted by high pressure, intense heat and possibly petroleum derived solvents. Moreover, the oil will also have been bleached, deodorized and artificially colored. The devitalized end product may then receive a dose of synthetic vitamins to replace those, which were destroyed during the refining process. To add insult to injury, it is quite legal to describe such a product as ‘pure’.

While a refined base oil will not harm the skin (unless you have an allergy to the plant from which it derives), unrefined oils are far superior.

Indeed, they are health treatments in themselves. The oils contain naturally occurring nutrients such as vitamins D and E, essential fatty acids and trace minerals such as calcium and magnesium, all of which are highly beneficial to the skin whether taken internally or used topically. For many years aromatherapists have promoted refined oils such as grapeseed and soya (unavailable in an unrefined state) on the grounds that they have almost no odor of their own and therefore do not interfere with the aromas of essential oils. The fruity-peppery aroma of extra virgin olive oil blends especially well with citrus essences; and while unrefined almond oil is a good base for all essential oils, its dulcet aroma marries exceptionally well with rose and chamomile.

After by googling, it’s almost time to get ready for work so I lie down on the bed and I’m vibrating. I couldn’t beleive it! It must be the calcium fighting with the magnesium. I won’t be doing that again…

Today I was googling the effects of vitamin A. There is no doubt that after a couple of days, it’s having an effect. My itchy watery eyes are gone and my nose feels a lot less stuffy. Almost like it has more lubrication than usual.

So I come across this web site that lists the following suggestions for Hay Fever:

  • Comb H  As directed on the label  A Polycrust of remedies for the relief of Hay Fever from New Era
  • Luffa Complex  As directed on the label  Best taken 1 to 2 weeks before allergy season and contine to use throughout season.
  • Co Q 10  30mg Twice daily  Improves Oxygenation and immunity.
  • Quercetin  400mg before meals twice a day  A Bioflavonoid that stabilizes the membranes of the cells that release histamine, which triggers allergic symptoms.
  • Vitamin A  100,000iu per day for 1 month, then reduce to 25,000iu. If you are pregnant Do NOT exceed 10,000 daily  A powerful immunostimulant.
  • Mega B100 Complex  1 tablet 3 times daily  B Vitamins are necessary for proper functioning of the immune system.
  • Vitamin C  3,000 to 10,000 daily  A potent immunostimulant and anti-inflammatory, use Time Released form. 

Aromatherapy
   
Essential oils are herbs for external use only whose essence has been extracted and highly concentrated. They directly affect the nervous system and are absorbed by the capillaries of the skin when used in the bath or massage. A few drops of cypress and melissa or Camomile oil in a warm bath are therapeutic for hay fever according to Mindy Green, a member of the American Herbalist Guild. For massage, dilute essential oils 10 drops to one ounce of carrier oil such as peanut or Sweet Almond. 

Essential oils directly affect the nervous system. This is interesting… I haven’t been using the oils as well as I should and I’ve missed the past two days and on those days the vibration has come back. I originally thought it was the vitamin D but now I might be thinking differently.

I won’t forget the oils tonight that’s for sure.

The day has finally come and I’ve been counting down the minutes all morning. I arrive at her house five minutes early and introduce myself when she opens the door. She tells me to go around the back of her house and enter her office. It’s a very humble room painted all white with a very weak looking examination table in the middle of the room. One side has two shelves filled with pictures of indian gurus along with burning scented candles and other middle eastern artifacts. There is a bookcase filled with books with everything from yoga, nutrition, chinese herbs to therapeutic aromatherapy. There is also a display case filled with lots of tiny little jars. On the other side of the room she has a digital camera on a miniture tripod and her computer. On the wall behind the camera is an iris chart for Iridology.

We begin the session by detailing the history of my symptoms with the successes and failures. I’ve done this so many times now I don’t bother taking my notes anymore. Every once in a while she will ask me a question and I explain in more detail. This takes about an hour and she is writing notes as we go along. At the end she comments on the tremedous amount of research I’ve done and says that people begin their second careers by a personal experience. I think I’d really enjoy being a research symptom investigator but unfortunately, doctor’s don’t seem to do any research.

She asks me about any injuries as a child and apart from appendicitis and a case of the mumps, there is nothing. Then I remember the story explained to me by my mother that as a child I fell down on brick edging around her garden and how I needed stitches between my eyes and I show her the tiny scar I have just above my nose. She says this is a very important area of the body and this injury may have played a part in my health history. She does a very brief eye exam with a plastic magnifying glass with a small light at the bottom. As she is looking at my eyes, she makes very small notations on my iridology chart. On the bottom of the page, there is a second chart for sclerology and she makes some notations on that chart too. WOW! I didn’t realize that she did sclerology as well as iridology.

After we review the entire history, she asks me to lie down on the examination table. She starts by checking the strength of my muscles and she asks me to put my arms and legs in a wide variety of positions and asks me to push in certain directions against her hand one position at a time. She then goes across the room and grabs five maybe six smallish briefcases, each one full of tiny little bottles. She spends the next two hours placing them one at a time on my stomach. She has her eyes closed and it appears like she is counting. Sometimes she places one bottle, sometimes multiple and from time to time, she will lift up my left arm and she places her hand around my wrist. Kind of the same way my acupuncture doctor did when she was listening to my lungs or liver via my pulse. She also checks my cranio sacral rhythm and says it feels weak. That’s the same thing the Osteopath said.

After she is done, she shows me a list she’s made of all of the essential oils and a number beside each one. She singles out two groups of these tiny bottles. One group of four, and another group of two. She explains about each of the oils and the effect it will have and she calls one group “Immpower blend” and the other called “Trauma blend”. She is going to make a blend using the four oils and pour them into little bottles to take with me. She grabs a book from her shelf regarding accupoints. She looks up a few things and explains the instructions.

She wants me to place a certain number of drops of oil on four different accupoints around my body and use them in the occasional foot bath.

ImmPower Blend:

Accupoint: LI20 – 2 drops – 2 times every other day.
Accupoint: LI 11 – 2 drops – 3 times everyday.
Footbath: 3-7 drops – every 4 days

Trauma Blend:

Accupoint: GB20 – 3 drops – every 3 days
Accupoint: RN12 – 2 drops – 2 times – every other day
Footbath: 3 drops – every 3 days

I can certainly say that no doctor has recommended that I try this! After she is done explaining about the oils, I notice that the time is past the three hour mark and she tells me to have a seat in front of the camera. She takes about fifteen pictures of my iris and sclera. It was a little bit difficult because of the light shining in my eyes and me not being able to open them wide enough but she downloads them to her computer and they look fantastic. Almost like those eyeball candies you see at halloween. It’s really creepy looking but hopefully she can make sense of it all.

She hands me my blended oils and I thank her very much for taking the time. I ask her if she would mind sending me her photos of the iris and she smiles. She said she doesn’t want me doing my own analysis so we agree that it’s best if she keeps them. She explains that in two weeks, she will have the full written report on what transpired today and she’ll review my supplements and make her recommedations if necessary. One thing is for sure, I do feel better today and I think it’s because I’ve added magnesium to my daily vitamins. She hands me a ten page Nutri-Body questionaire and it’s divided into 55 sections. She wants me to complete it and return it before the follow up appointment.

Today was certainly not what I expected. I thought it would be more like she would look at my eyes and tell me what was going on and recommend vitamins and minerals. After today, I’ve realized that iridology is quite complicated and it’s not something that is instant because a large part of it is the iridologist’s interpretation of what they can see.

I haven’t had much luck so far with any doctors so let’s see if this is any different. And it’s different all right…
