It has videos, instructions as well as various Guided Meditations with specific goals in mind, for stress-relief, better sleep, relaxing the body, and meditations stimulating and increasing the functions of our organs e.g. the kidneys.

It’s all about showing you what to do to self-heal while having some exercise.

Toxins

Toxins are a by-product of digestion. E.g. the body breaks down protein, some of which is converted into ammonia.

If a poorly liver doesn’t filter out ammonia after digestion, it’s released into the blood, which could cause damage to your brain, nervous system, kidneys and liver.

The Gall-Bladder (in conjunction with the Lymphatic system) filters lactic acid/lactate from your muscular system. These toxins cause chronic fatigue, aching muscles and cramps. Too much Lactic Acid leads to anxiety, headaches, high blood pressure or even panic attacks.

A healthy liver

  • Mainly detoxes oxidants, (80% of its workload). When fat and glucose are used up, energy is created in the cells. Oxidants (bad for you) are a by-product of this process.

  • Eliminates excess hormones; a weak Liver can result in acne and PMS.

  • Balances blood sugar levels, imbalance may result in chronic fatigue, sugar cravings, weight gain and ultimately diabetes.

A healthy Gall-Bladder

  • Produces and stores Bile, which regulates cholesterol levels.

  • A poor functioning Gall-Bladder may result in digestive disorders, stomach bloating, IBS, nausea, food allergies and poor vitamin absorption of A, D, K and E.

We will work on detoxing these organs to stimulate good health.

There will be hand-outs, on-line support and lists of food to support you with this.

During the course we will do light exercises, mindfulness, meditation, how to nap, how to breathe and more.

There is a non-refundable deposit of €30 required for both the early bird price of €70 and for the €80 price after 18th of Feb. We need to know how many people will be there well before the day.

Electronic transfers (through your online banking) are really handy, ask me for my bank details.

Or send cheques made payable to Mark van Dam, to: Kilkern, Castlefreke, Clonakilty, Co. Cork.

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine viewpoint:

  • The Liver (yin energy) and the Gall Bladder (yang energy) are represented by the wood element, which is a strong, rooted manifestation, also representing (new) growth.
  • The Liver stores blood and regulates a smooth flow of Chi around the body.
  • Anger causes imbalance in the Liver. Kindness, Self-Expansion, Forgiveness its virtues.
  • Indecisiveness is related to the Gall Bladder while Courage is its virtue.
  • The liver can have 80% of its energy blocked before it becomes manifested in illness.
  • Pushing the body to its limits depletes the Liver. Walking and juggling strengthen it.
  • Planning and visualising stressful tasks aids the liver to see the wood for the trees. I.e. calming.

 

Qigong Exercises that stimulate the Liver Meridians

  • Big Windmill Hand – Good for Liver & Spleen Systems.

  • Whirl Arms On Both Sides On Fixed Stance – Unblocks Qi in Liver & Gall Bladder channels

  • Circle Arms Like Flywheels – Helps to eliminate waste from bowels, Liver and Kidney.

  • Plucking Stars Changing Galaxies – Overcomes Liver & Gall Bladder Problems.

    Meditations

  • Many Meditations work, calming is good for the whole body and mind.
  • I like “Daoist Healing Sounds for the Liver”.
