How to erase a simple headache without aspirin.

Imagine yourself in a bubble of light -- purple, violet, or blue are good ones to experiment with, and then simply imagine that the light can seep through the skin into the cells of the whole body, lifting away the pain, and changing temperature to suit the occasion, either an experience of warmth or cold.


Next, you simply imagine your right hand placed in a bucket of iced water. Really cold iced water, so of course it will feel as though it has lost all sensation and gone numb -- without the painful bit of an actual pail of ice.

When the hand is completely anesthetized, simply rub it over the affected headache area and feel the numbing effect transferring from hand to pain, and the numbed hand restored to normal. This normally works well with one application, but there is nothing to stop you repeating it.

This "cold hand" one of the simplest of pain control techniques and is good for minor cramps, bumps and bruises as well.


There's a variant called the "inner pharmacy" that works brilliantly for some willing to play what seems to be a nonsense game. To do this one, imagine going into an old fashioned pharmacy of the mind where your subconscious stores all its remedies.


Visualize a gorgeous, old-fashioned, dark place that smells wonderful and has those old mahogany drawers and counter tops and shelves of brown, blue and green bottles containing different liquids or pills.

You just look over the shelves and pick the bottle that starts twinkling like a Xmas tree light. 

Either swallow one -- only one -- of the tablets inside or pour a into the medicine glass thoughtfully left on the counter for you. You can even visualize a water bottle there for those who need liquid to swallow a pill! Who says placebo effect doesn't work?



Your subconscious can't tell the difference, so the imaged medication will frequently work much faster than a pharmaceutical with no side effects.

How about another ancient pain control technique? Relaxation techniques are often useful, especially if you can get hold of one of those little biofeedback meters that tells you when you're "stressed" or "relaxed" so you get to feel the difference.


Additionally, you may need to eat something, or get some sleep, or check your posture and the chairs you are sitting on for extended periods.


You can also try magnesium supplements or better yet magnesium spray.




It may sound like a ghastly idea, but a few swift minutes of vigorous exercise can set up enough biochemical changes to erase a simple headache.
So there are stacks of ideas that can be tried as an alternative to taking a tablet.

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.


Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.



The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Bliss Meditation

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. 

Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.

In addition to this analogy, increased encounters with serpents are also often reported by those in the midst of a Kundalini Awakening.
 These encounters don't necessarily have to be with the real live snakes. These reports generally indicate that there is just a greater presence of snakes in their lives all of sudden, in the form of pictures, dreams, conversations, TV shows, books, etc.
There are also the more incredible stories regarding snakes, especially cobras, and those with awakened Kundalini. An example of this is the cobra that would often visit U.G. Krishnamurti at night at his house.  This cobra would hiss and bang at the door and in general make a lot of rucku…

Zhan Zhuang - Foundation of Internal Martial Arts

I found another good article on my favorite topic.

Zhan Zhuang - foundation of Internal Martial Artsby Karel Koskuba

Most Internal Martial Arts use some form of standing practice as foundation training (and Taijiquan is no exception in this regard). 

These standing exercises are usually called Zhan Zhuang(pole standing); sometimes they are called 'Standing Qigong'.

The standing exercises are supposed torelax and help you'accumulate Qi'. In this article I shall try to outline my theory that should explain, from western perspective, why these exercises are so important both for Internal Martial Arts and Qigong, how this western view correlates with the traditional Qiview and give training advice on how to practice them. In writing this article I have drawn upon my experience from Taijiquan, Yiquan and information from medical postural rehabilitation research and sports science.
