About Your Belly Brain and Why it is So Important

Did you know that you have a second brain in your belly and that it plays a vital role in both your physical and psychological well-being? About 20 years ago, Esogetic ColorpunctureTM originator, Peter Mandel, became interested in research emerging from a new field called Gastroneuroenterology. These researchers were talking about “the belly or abdominal…


Light is a Powerful Medium for BodyMind Healing

I always start by referring to this quote by physicist, David Bohm when explaining the power of using colored light as a treatment medium:

“Light is energy and it is information. It is content, form and structure.
It is the potential for everything. Therefore, when you deal with light,
you come to the fundamental activity in which existence has it’s ground.”
David Bohm, Theoretical Physicist

Bohm has described light’s role perfectly. Light, and it’s “children,” the colors, are the fundamental building blocks of our existence. We are made of light and we are swimming in light! For this reason, it makes perfect sense to use light as a therapeutic medium.

I explore this topic extensively in my book, Energy Psychology Using Light and Color. In this blog post, I’ll summarize highlights from that discussion, and throw in a few additional research findings. Perhaps, you find it difficult to imagine that a tiny bit of colored light applied to points on the skin could ease physical pain and tension, support the body in its recovery from various illnesses, improve our moods and outlook on life, stimulate dreaming, deepen our connection to inner guidance and so much more. Hopefully, the evidence I’m about to describe, coming from scientific research and clinical observations, will help you appreciate light’s amazing potential to support the healing of body and mind.


The Lymph as a Psychological Buffer System

About Your Lymph and Its Role as the Body’s Psychological Buffer

This blog post is about the wondrous workings of your lymphatic system. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this system, it is comprised of several hundred tiny lymph nodes located primarily in the neck, chest, and belly, as well as drainage ducts and the lymphatic tissues of the spleen, thymus, adenoids, appendix, and tonsils. The lymph itself is a clear liquid that is circulated through the body and eventually returns to the bloodstream. As it circulates, it absorbs and removes toxins, bacteria, digested fats, hormones, and other waste products. The lymph is a primary component of your immune system. It produces and stores white blood cells, including the T cells that attack and destroy bacteria and other life-threatening pathogens.
