Sakinah Flower Essence for Depression

Did you know that up to 95% of Imams in America said they spend significant time each week providing informal mental health counselling to their congregation? In a Yale University study by Dr. Mona Amer noted that 50 percent of all Arab-Americans surveyed had clinical signs of depression. In another study, it was found that Muslim youth aged 18 to 28 are the least happy and the most angry compared to the youth of other faith groups in America.

Healing with flowers is not a new idea as the ancient Egyptians and Romans used flowering plants for medicinal purposes. But, the modern tradition of healing with flowers began in the early 1930’s with Dr Edward Bach. He was a medical doctor and one of the earliest homeopaths at the beginning of the twentieth century.  Disillusioned by modern medicine, he believed that every physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual symptom offered clues as to what we need to restore balance.  Over time, he discovered flower remedies.

Depression within the Muslim community is an accepted reality. Fortunately, there are natural remedies to combat this ailment. Scientists at the University of Copenhagen discovered that plant compounds from the South African flower species Crinum and Cyrtanthus (related to daffodils) may be useful in treating diseases originating in the brain, including depression. The study findings show why these plant compounds are so effective—they can cross the brain’s protective blood-brain barrier, something that has proven challenging for many conventional drug treatments.

Natural Remedies for Leaky Gut

Lately, I’ve had several people who came to see me for stomach issues. Their ailments range from bloating, gas, cramps, gastric ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), acid reflex, Crohn’s disease and allergies to various foods. All these stomach ailments can be put under the category of Leaky Gut.

The father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, said, “All disease begins in the gut.” This sentence has been proven true for centuries now. The functioning of our digestive system has a huge impact on our overall health. The weird thing is that the medical industry does not recognize leaky gut syndrome, so its better to turn to natural healing practitioners to heal your digestive problems.

Leaky gut syndrome is a condition in which the lining of the small intestine becomes damaged, causing undigested food particles, toxic waste products and bacteria to leak through the intestines and flood the blood stream. Symptoms of leaky gut syndrome includes abdominal bloating, lots of gas and gas pains, belly cramps, chronic fatigue, skin rashes and food sensitivities. HijamaHerbs sessions for Gut Health can help overcome leaky gut problems.

School Shootings and Psychiatric Drugs

Lately there has been a lot of talk in the media following the school shooting in Florida. It is a sad reality that a young man can easily buy guns and quietly enter a school and shoot dead 17 teenagers, and then walk out quietly and drive to a McDonald’s fast food restaurant to eat his lunch. Weird, only happens in America!!

It has been found that the killer, Nikolas Cruz who committed the mass murder was on psychiatric medications. These drugs have dangerous side effects which include suicidal thoughts. Not only this tragic incident, but in many of the school shootings that had occurred, it has been found that the killer was taking psychotropic drugs like antidepressants or stimulants at the time of crime.    

School children mourning the loss of 17 school friends who were killed in the Florida high school this week. The killer, Nikolas Cruz was reported to be taking medications for depression and emotional issues that come packed with a number of side effects that can lead to violent behavior.

The Jinn That Locked His Jaw

Yesterday, I had a man who came to see me about his locked jaw. He complained to me, “The jinn is locking my jaw and throat, making me unable to speak clearly what I want to say. It is particularly distressing to me in salat, when I’m trying to recite the holy words, but this jinn holds my jaw and I’m unable to say the words correctly. It even plays with my mind and makes me say the wrong words.”

I pressed on the points on his jaw, cheekbones and back of neck. Sure enough, the young man was gasping out in pain indicating blockages in that region. I proceeded to track the path of pain, and found it to run from the jaw, throat, back of neck, upper shoulders and running down to the chest and stomach area. In cases of sihr/jinn the path of pain becomes the path in which the jinn moves in the body through the bloodstream.

Jaw pain (also called TMJ) is pain that radiates from your jaw bone. This stiffness in the jaw can make it difficult to open your mouth, and it can cause sharp or shooting pain when chewing or biting down. Damage to the jaw joint or the muscles that control your jaw movement can be caused by several factors, including grinding your teeth at night, involuntarily clenching your jaw due to stress and anxiety or trauma to the jaw joint, such as getting hit in the face while playing sports. Jinn, from the effect of black magic can also play a role in clenching the jaws, making it difficult to speak properly and think clearly.

Healing Women’s Hormonal Imbalances

A hormonal imbalance occurs when there is too much estrogen compared to progesterone in a woman’s body, also referred to as estrogen dominance. In a normal cycle, estrogen and progesterone hormones work together to maintain a woman’s menstrual cycle, each playing an important role.

When hormone balances occur and estrogen levels become too high, it can lead to many problems with a woman’s reproductive cycle, from PMS symptoms to menstrual problems or irregular periods, to mood swings, abdominal weight gain, increased levels of stress hormones, uterine fibroids, and an increased risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, and breast cancer.

Bloating, fatigue, irritability, hair loss, palpitations, mood swings, problems with blood sugar, trouble concentrating, infertility -these are just a few symptoms of hormone imbalance.

For over a thousand of years, the Japanese people have been eating a particular food called natto for breakfast. It is a sticky, cheese like food which is produced by fermenting soybeans with the bacteria Bacillus Subtilis — one of the “good” bacteria that keeps the intestinal tract healthy and working properly.

Emotional Shocks as the Cause of Diabetes

According to the Lancet study – China, India and USA – are among the top three countries with a high number of diabetic population. In India alone, there were over 72 million cases of diabetes in 2017 dubbing it as the world capital of diabetes.

More than the physical reasons for diabetes, the emotional aspect plays a huge role for the onset of diabetes. What are the emotional causes of diabetes? A strong feeling of dislike, when you feel reluctant “I don’t approve” or “this is disgusting”, causes a disruption of rhythm and provokes a metabolic reaction in the body. The production of the hormones insulin or glucagon in the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas gets reduced. The inhibition of these hormones and their energy-transforming function, either into its transportable form (by stimulating glucagon), or into its availability for muscles (by stimulating insulin). The first leads to low blood sugar and sugar cravings, the latter to remaining sugar in the blood as in diabetes.

A panel discussion on the emotional causes of diabetes with Dr Kwesi Anan Odum, Dr Anu Mehta, Dr Jyoti Lalwani, Kavita Freedom and Richard Flook during the Meta-Health Conference. In Mumbai, India. In the discussion, Kavita explains how she was able to reverse a teenager’s Type 1 diabetes to normalcy within 6 months by working on his emotional aspects.

Complimentary Emotional Healing Included

One of my mentors in natural healing had a 42 yr old man who came seeking help for his excruciating tennis elbow pain which he had been suffering for several months. My mentor who is a chiropractic by profession performed chiropractic adjustments for a week, but saw no improvement in this client. He then realized that this pain may be caused be emotional knots in the client’s arm.

He identified the first stuck emotion as “inferiority”. It had become trapped in the client’s body since high school and it had to do with a girl he liked at that time. When that stuck emotion was released, it had an immediate effect on the arm. Suddenly the man’s elbow pain decreased noticeably. He continued locating more stuck emotions in the man. The second stuck emotions he found was “nervousness”, and he released it. And he continued looking for more stuck emotions. A total of 5 emotions were found and he released them. When the last stuck emotion was released, the pain was completely gone.

Stuck emotions can cause physical pain. When physical treatments do not reduce the pain, it can indicate that this pain is caused by stuck emotions. When emotional healing is performed, the pain reduces immediately and noticeably. Realizing the importance of emotional healing, we are now including a 15-min introductory emotional healing session in all our HijamaHerbs treatments at no extra charge.

Removing Pain by Removing Dirty Blood

Many clients who come to us for a HijamaHerbs session with the purpose of removing pain are amazed to see the dirty blood that is coming out from their body. When they see the dark, sticky, lumpy blood coming out, they gasp at the sight of the dirty blood, saying they can’t believe there is such a bad thing residing in their body all this while.

I always tell them, “Well, it a good thing you came here to remove the dirty blood. Once we remove it, the pain and inflammation you feel will also be released, and you should feel much relief and relaxation after that, insha-Allah.”

Left Picture: Normal healthy blood seen under dark field microscopy. Red blood cells stay separately in their own space therefore having the freedom to travel around the body network of capillaries. The free floating white blood cells known as neutrophils, having the freedom to move around the body searching out toxins and pathogens, and getting rid of them.
Right Picture: Blood under dark filed microscopy taken from a person suffering from pain and inflammation. When the blood is removed from the part of body experiencing pain and inflammation, it shows high concentrations of acids and inflammatory proteins often referred to as fibrin. The area of pain appears to act like a magnet for acids, toxins and pathogens. By removing the dirty blood from the local area, it brings about symptomatic relief, while encouraging fresh circulating blood to deliver healing nutrients and oxygen to the affected tissue, thus providing healing and resolution.

An Effective Natural Remedy for Children with Cold Flu

The common cold is an upper respiratory infection caused by a virus. According to the Mayo Clinic, more than 100 different viruses can cause the common cold. However, the rhinovirus is most often the one that makes people sneeze and sniffle, and it’s highly contagious. On the other hand, the flu can bring about more serious health conditions, especially among young children, older adults, pregnant women and people with existing health conditions such as asthma, heart disease and diabetes.

Getting hit with cold and flu can make anyone feel miserable. Symptoms include fever, cough, stuffy nose, body aches, headaches and fatigue. Fortunately, there are several things you can do naturally to alleviate this health problem.

When your child gets a cold, it starts when he has a general feeling of not being well, often followed by a sore throat, runny nose or cough. At the beginning, the sore throat is due to a buildup of mucus. Later, your child may get a postnasal drip — when the mucus runs down the back of his nose to the throat. As your child’s cold gets worse, he may wake up with symptoms like watery mucus in the nose, sneezing, feeling of tiredness, fever, sore throat and cough.
