With our long winter, there is less light entering the retina of the eye and receptor sites of exposed skin to activate serotonin for the body. To help the body to navigate easily to those tough times, I do a balance.
While a person is lying on their back (preferable a massage table), I use an R500 Acculite light. I am using pure ruby red color of light pre-set at 500-550 nanometers per second. Anything smaller is on the wrong frequency and will not penetrate deep enough, and anything larger the brain will not accept. Make sure gluteus medius muscles hold when monitored. Place the left hand on the adjacent upper area of the skull and monitor the gluteus medius muscle. If the muscle releases, this indicates the cranial bone sutures are seized together, and the cerebral spinal fluid is not flowing through the microscopic movements of the skull bones properly and back up to the brain. The cerebral spinal fluid acts as the electrical conduit for the nerves to work properly and assists in the production of serotonin.
1. Place the light onto the end of the central meridian first just below the center of the lower lip (until indicator muscle holds)
2. Place the light onto the end of the governing meridian just above the center of the upper lip (until indicator muscle holds)
3. Place R500 light located at the 3rd eye region (between the eyebrows but a bit higher) until indicator muscle holds or until pupils of the eyes dilate and come back into normal position to activate the pituitary gland.
4. Place R500 light just above the third eye in the center of the forehead close to where the hairline is to activate the pineal gland until pupils dilate and come back to normal and retest indicator muscle (it should hold), to activate the pineal gland.
5. Place R500 on the person’s soft spot of the skull again, waiting for the eyes to dilate and come back to normal size or until indicator muscle holds. We are activating the pituitary and pineal gland together to help activate the cerebral spinal fluid. To find the soft spot, the client places the heel of the hand at the bridge of their nose, and where the end of the middle finger touches the top of the skull, you can find the soft spot; It is called the anterior fontanelle.
6. Place R500 towards the center rear portion of the skull just below the crown of the head called the posterior fontanelle again, waiting for eyes to dilate or until indicator muscle holds.
7. Use the R500 on the right side midway back on the crown of the skull (on the coronal suture), waiting for eyes to dilate, or indicator muscle holds, to activate the adrenal glands.
8. Use the R500 lights on the left side midway back on the crown on the coronal suture of the skull, waiting for the eyes to dilate, or an indicator muscle holds, to activate the large intestine to drain off any excess from central spinal fluid.
9. The client put both hands on the center upper rear portion of the skull to cover the parental bones and the occipital bones and activate the gluteus medius muscle until they hold. And then, activate the gluteus medius three more times to pump the cerebral spinal fluid from the sacrum back up to the brain.
10. Have the person sit up only when they feel ready to sit up but do not let them stand yet. After 4-5 minutes, then they can stand. Usually, they will have a feeling of euphoria (lightheaded) when getting the cerebral spinal fluid flowing correctly.
If the cranial bones are not in proper alignment, any balancing technique that you are doing may not hold as long as it should. After, you can then apply a balancing technique that you may know by setting a goal with the desired outcome of what the client may want to achieve. I prefer to do this by identifying the emotions that cause stress. It is the emotion opposite of those stressful emotions that will help in determining how to set up the goal (I like to use the PKP Amygdala emotions charts when testing for the emotions). Example: anxiety-calm, fear-courage, or bravery, anger-unconditional love. Put those positive emotions together to form a statement. Example: I am calmly courageous with unconditional love, or I am unconditional loving and courageously calm, looking for the best statement that will bring the best results for the desired outcome for that person.
1. Ask the person’s body through a yes or no indicator muscle response, “is this the best goal for this person (name) at this time?” If not, ask, “Is there something that should be added to this goal, or is there something that should be deleted from this goal?”. Like Dr. Bruce Dewe and Joan Dewe teach in the PKP series.
2. Have the client state the goal on each muscle on each meridian that you pretest checking for each meridian, noting which muscles are switched off.
3. Do the appropriate balancing procedure that you know.
4. Go back and remonitor all previous muscles while restating the goal. All muscle imbalances should now be switched on.
5. Ask the body if the balance is 100% complete on all levels.
6. Ask the body when it is the next best time for another balance by asking for an indicator muscle change. Example: 1 day, two days, ten days, one month, etc. until you get an indicator muscle change for the next follow up appointment.
There are some cases that supplementation can help. Serotonin is a monoamine neurotransmitter/ hormone giving images and feelings of well-being and happiness and helps to send signals from one area part of the brain to another. It plays a whole range of roles in the neuropsychological processes by relaying signals between nerve cells, or neurons, and regulating their intensity.
Only two percent of the body’s serotonin is found in the brain, and 95% is produced in the intestines, blood platelets, and central nervous system where it modulates hormonal, endocrine, autocrine and paracrine actions. Serotonin may affect motor functions, appetite, craving for sweets or starchy foods, pain perception, and biological function like cardiovascular function, energy balance, digestive function, bone metabolism, mood regulation, low self-esteem, depression, social behavior, sexual desire and function, liver regeneration, cell division, sleep cycles, bowel, bladder function and more.
Supplementing Tip – for those with training and licencing specific to providing supplement information.
Nutritional supplements to help the body to produce serotonin that may help are:
1. Tryptophan is an essential amino acid and the sole precursor to serotonin. Estrogen affects tryptophan metabolism by affecting vitamin B6 bioavailability (which is a cofactor in tryptophan catabolism). Estrogen appears to influence tryptophan degradation, which may be a cause of why more females are affected than males. Other nutritional supplements such as Rhodiola Rosea, Passion Flower, Lavender, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, EPA, melatonin, Vitamin D, B6, 5-HTP, and more.
