For every physical ailment there is an energetic pathology involved. It is impossible to get maximum correction in the most expedient manner, unless this energetic element is addressed. Most people in America are unaware of this energetic element. This book will introduce to you your energetic self through the four components of the Acupuncture System.
There are numerous energetic healing modalities used around the world that use the principles of the Acupuncture System as a foundation.
Acu Kinesiology is a system based on the principles of the Eight Extraordinary Meridians, the main operating system of Acupuncture.
Acu Kinesiology integrates the Chakra System and the Musculo-tendeno Meridians System into the healing equation, which accounts for the exceptional speed and longevity of recovery. Acu Kinesiology effectively releases the contraction caused by energetic pathologies, enabling patients to experience symptomatic relief.
This book will reveal the ways in which our energetic self is associated with the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of life. Our quality of life is determined by how good we feel in these relationships to our energetic self.
When we are attuned to the flow of Divine Spirit through our energetic body, the quality of our well-being is higher.

The links within the original book version gradually became obsolete or broken. Therefore a table has been placed at the end of the book which lists Internet resources – recent educational materials that have been written mostly by Jim since June 2009. They are updated frequently and are listed at the end of this book.
The world-wide Flu Pandemic announced by the World Health Organization has caused numerous health web sites in the U.S. to be brought off-line. This is based on U. S. Congress openly supporting arrests and fines against persons and organizations that promote alternative remedies for flu and Influenza other than those approved by the World Health Organization. Vaccinations and Tamiflu or other approved antibiotics are said to be the only legitimate means of reducing flu symptoms. At the time of writing, most web sites located in non-US countries still provide MMS information as listed at the end of volume one.
Viewed as a classic work this book stands as the authentic history of how ClO2 came to the front as the most potent and powerful germicidal agent on the planet. Jim explains how activated MMS cannot harm normal living body cells. His contribution was that he found the best way to package MMS as a safe affordable product, and to test it for five years to prove reliable outcomes. His discovery is now used daily by more than a million people around the world, not including dogs, cats, horses, and other animals. All this since 2006 when MMS was introduced along with this book.
MMS suppliers are no longer listed or identified because search engines provide that information quite effectively. Disinformation on the Internet states that MMS (and the ClO2 that it generates) is the same as chlorine and therefore it is dangerous. That is not true. Chlorine dioxide has been well known in industry for 70 years. Chlorine Dioxide is even an approved food additive at food-packaging time because it destroys salmonella, e- coli, and every other known germ – eventually converting into molecules of water as it disappears.
MMS was developed and tested by Jim between 2001 and 2006, involving over 75,000 volunteers in five different countries. This is the story of those years and the events that led to standardization of the current MMS product.
New protocols and methods for using MMS have evolved in the years since the release of this book. The latest discoveries and innovations are described in the links at the end of the book. Disregard links within the book – they are now obsolete.

Acupressure is a system of healing that originated in the East. It is based on the theory that the body possesses remarkable forces of energy that can be used to cure itself. Acupressure focuses on stimulating specific reflex points in the body in order to provide relief from pain or other symptoms.
This book explains in a simple, easy-to-follow language the basic techniques of acupressure that can be used to treat several disorders and restore physical fitness.
El objetivo es claro: mostrar que la acupuntura es efectiva y segura, libre de efectos secundarios tanto en la prevención como en el tratamiento de muchas enfermedades.
Acupressure stimulates the same points used in acupuncture, but instead of needles, firm finger pressure is used on the surface of the skin. The pressure releases neurochemicals called endorphins that relieve pain. As in acupuncture, specific pressure points are connected with internal organs and energy pathways in the body (called meridians) that regulate the flow of electrical energy to all systems. Unlike acupuncture, acupressure can be used safely by anyone, with only the hands as equipment.
ACUPRESSURE FOR EMOTIONAL HEALING offers a comprehensive A-Z guide to emotional ailments (from abandonment to worry and obsessive thinking), with fully-illustrated instruction on dozens of precise acupressure point locations and how to activate them, combined with yogic breathing, stretching, and movement routines. Case histories from the authors' practice further illuminate each condition and the path to emotional balance and healing. Most routines can be used independently for self-care and on-the-spot relief. There are also sections on how to use the techniques to help others, with appropriate safeguards.

Drawing from mythology, medicine, biology and energetic healing, she finds the essential stories that characterize each organ of the human body, and trains us how to use these resources to identify the messages that our organs are communicating to us. The heart, for instance, is not just a durable pump, sending oxygenated blood to every cell. It's also a representation of goodwill; a heart-to-heart connection, or an open-hearted friend, are universal stories we can all identify. But a hard-hearted person is one we all avoid. These archetypes are found in mythologies from Native American traditions to Scandinavian tribes to Greek history, and are woven together in a fascinating matrix in Body Eloquence, showing how our organs are part of our psyche, our history, and our collective mythology.
This collection represents the kind of international collaboration of research teams, centres and individuals that is required to begin to study the source materials adequately. The first book in English to discuss this fascinating material in the century since the Dunhuang library was discovered, the text provides a unique and fascinating interpretation of Chinese medical history.
Natural therapies include acupuncture, gland cell therapy, homeopathy, herbal medicine, and a number of other methods. This book is of great value to health professionals, students and scholars in integrative medicine, alternative medicine and endocrinology. It is also valuable as a self help handbook for the motivated non-professional.
