millie says milk the underarm

milk the underarm. not quite like the time your friend’s brother made that strange pumping action and accompanying noise with his hand on the opposite armpit…or was it you doing that? massaging the lymph nodes of the under pits dislodges breast swellings, tenderness and stagnant dwellings in the lymph nodes, sending unwanted gooberoo to clearance in the lymphatic duct, located near the heart. for breast disease prevention, males and females can take part in placing the palm of your hand under your underarm and gently pumping this armpit. move it slightly up towards shoulder and in towards body. do this 15 times on both sides.

millie says decode lumps and bumps

decode lumps and bumps. lymph bodies more colloquially referred to as glands make up a parallel universe to the body’s circulatory system, following the venous circulation routes to remove debris, infection and old pathogens from the body’s blood stream. thus the lymphatic system is a major detoxifying organ system with system channels and collection depots called nodes. These nodes are found in the neck and throat, teeth, ear, collar bone, underarm and groin areas and when present as soft, swollen and tender indicate pathogenic activity in the blood stream that the body is trying to fight. Usually this activity is the result of external pathogen activity such as viral, chemical, bacterial or fungal though can also be an auto-immune reaction in that the body is recognizing proteins found in food or those created in the body itself as foreign. The white blood cells subsequently mount a tender response to clear it. In order to help clear these sore tender nodes, lymphatic drainage techniques such as hot compresses, castor oil packs, exercise, massage, drainage herbs, dry brushing can all be applied. More chronic and serious conditions can produce hard, non tender lymph nodes that may be benign or malignant tumors called lymphomas. usually a lymphoma will be biopsied to determine it’s cancer status and stage. Lipomas are non-tender rubbery growths of undigested-unutilized fat cells that have accumulated under the skin usually in areas away from the lymph nodes, though unsightly, not usually harmful may indicate a cholesterol problem. Search your body for the lumps, keep track of their appearance disappearance so you can report accurately to your doctor of choice.

you are what you eat.  in Chinese Medical philosophy life force known as essence comes to us in two forms: from our parents at conception and then again on a daily basis, from food.  So if you eat food with good essence you will have good essence.  if you eat food with good chemistry, you will have good chemistry.  if you eat living food you will have energy.  if you eat nutrient-rich health food, you will be nutrient rich.  eat what you wish to become rather than what’s convenient.

Take the heat.  When put on the hot seat, I will own up to what I’ve done wrong, learn from mistakes and incorporate them into my life’s lessons.  Then it will feel cool.

Go to Spain, if only in practice.  The siesta or an afternoon nap is beneficial if the mind can be trained to keep it to less than 30 minutes as it promotes wakefulness, enhances performance and learning ability.  If that same nap is habitually extended it may be associated, unfortunately, with death, especially among the elderly.  So keep those naps short, mi amigos.

Don’t dine on plastic wine (eg. Little Penguin). While reusing and reclycing plastic is necessary to reduce the landfill burden and perhaps one day the human race will have to incorporate plastic and harmful estrogens into genetic code to pass the newest survival-of-the-fittest tests. But until that day when future generations are born with a nutritional need for IV plastic as medicine, choose glass and stainless steel containers for food and drink as much as possible, since plastics tend to leach off bisphenols and xenoestrogens faster in acidic environments; wine, pop, club soda, beer juice, mineral water, spirits.

If symptoms; mysterious but worrisome, irksome but ‘all in your head’, random but physiological, psychological or emotional, are keeping you up, itching, in pain, bloated, moody, feeling toxic, sans bebe, stumping health-care providers and no answers with medicine then consider this statement “luckily for you, I happen to be a quack.”  [Richter cartoon caption].

Eat seeds for your little seeds.  Studies show that EPO, an important long chain fatty acid found in the oils of cold water fish, walnuts and certain seeds will help maintain reproductive integrity, spawning healthy gametes for both sexes and regulating menstrual cycles in the process. 1)From new moon (or first day of menses) to day before full moon (ovulation) = flaxseeds & pumpkin seeds 2)From full moon (ovulation) to day before new moon (menses) = sesame seeds & sunflower seeds.  The XX and XYs of the next generation will bounce for joy!

Adventure into the kitchen.  Eat more nutritious food at home on a tight schedule by setting 1-2 hours twice weekly aside to get your hands “dirty”.  Connect with your food again by picking your favorite one-dish recipe and making a big pot of it from scratch. Set half aside for freezing, eat it once daily for ½ the week or host a dinner party to make the most of your time in the kitchen.  You’ll be happy you found the time.
