Welcome to 2013 and the Feb Issue 203 of Positive Health PH Online - our 19th year of publication!!

I say this every issue that there are a selection of superb and thought-provoking editorial features which are highly original and informative. However it is true for Feb Issue 203 and you should require no further prompting to immerse yourself in these pearls of wisdom:

The Fear Process - Beyond the Initials PTSD by Ann Fillmore digs down into the basics of so many of our behaviours and then provides some start-up remedies to recovery:

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear

Dune, Frank Herbert 1965.

In Living the Life you Dream Part II, Gina Pickersgill continues her inspiring tale of how to redesign your life.

“Learning to love yourself is no easy task when you have been listening to voices telling you that you are no good. If you have been the 'victim' of such a tirade of insults either from yourself or others then you will know what it means to feel less than worthless. Yes, it's a feeling. A feeling that makes you behave in ways that undermine your self-worth. That notion is the single most important factor that enables a person to be free of its tyranny.

“In the previous article, I wrote about my journey to freedom and the emotional roller-coaster and scary feelings that it took to get there. Joe Dispenza encapsulates my experience by noting that "when we fully lay down the old, familiar life or mind and start creating the new, there is a moment between the two worlds that is bereft of anything we know, and most rush back from this void to the familiar. That place of uncertainty - the unknown - is what the maverick, the mystic, and the saint know to be fertile ground". This article will explain the way in which you can recognize this feeling and how you can use it make a loop-hole from which to design a new future.

In Can I be Hypnotized?, Sally Stubbs relates with a powerful Case Study how events and significant people in our childhood can create long-lasting and powerful effects which last a lifetime.

“An important adult in our childhood impacts our unconscious with: You are beautiful. Their behaviour is consistent: they look at us with adoring looks, they cuddle and cherish us, they speak the words, “….you are beautiful”. And so we grow in life with a certainty and confidence in our inner beauty.

“The same important adult in our childhood impacts our unconscious with: You must be quiet (or you will be in big trouble). You must not speak up (or you will be in big trouble). You must not say NO! to staying over at grandmas, you must not say NO! to eating disgusting sprouts (or there will be big trouble).

“And so part of our persona that wants and needs to speak and needs to say NO! withdraws deep into the unconscious mind in a state of fear; we have to acquiesce because we rely on this important adult for our physical survival. We withdraw; and as we progress through life, part of our persona remains ‘withdrawn’ unable to speak up, unable to say NO!, because the fear remains impacting our unconscious, a ‘marker’ throughout our life."

She illustrates the power of such events through the words of Annie, who describes how she feels.

“By the time Annie knocked at my door asking for my help, she was suffering not only chronic lack of sleep, attacks of vertigo, debilitating tinnitus, coeliac disease and anaemia; the poor girl also had cancer. I so respect Annie and her efforts in her life.

“I always carry it around with me.

"It’s like a big heavy coat with a big heavy hood - it weighs me down - it makes me stoop. It exhausts me.

"The hood covers the whole of my head; I can barely see.

"The coat is black and heavy, heavy.

"It does have a bright red light shiny lining - like satin. But the black heavy coat and hood completely encase me and no one can see my bright light shininess.

"No one can see me; I’m like a stooped broken figure. The heaviness of it has built up over all the years; it has got heavier and heavier. I can never rest; even when I lie down the heaviness is so tiring, always so uncomfortable and exhausting. It makes me too tired to sleep. The weight of it is dragging me down and down it is crushing me."

Another completely original feature, emanating from Hungary, is Molecular and Clinical Effects of Deuterium Depleted Water in Treatment and Prevention of Cancer by Krisztina Krempels MD Ildikó Somlyai MSc and Gábor Somlyai PhD, who describe the considerable body of research already amassed about how deuterium-depleted water creates an unfavourable environment for cancer cells to exist at the molecular level. For those interested in cancer, this information provides riveting reading and the taste of further developments yet to come.

Other features in this issue discuss how hypnosis can help with stress in our personal and business lives, homeopathic approaches to winter coughs and influenza, rejuvenation - can we program our body to stay young, energy medicine health benefits, Vitamin A, how to ask questions of your bodywork professional, and cranial moulding and baby helmets. The Letters to the Editor discuss the terminology of CAM, and Vitamin C for Heart Disease, Cancer and Cell Protection and the Research Updates present topics in alternative medicine, antioxidants, cancer, depression, homeopathy, meditation, naturopathy,   nutrition, osteopathy, pain relief and smoking. A veritable feast for discovery and enlightenment.
