ACMOS METHOD: Level 1 & 2 - 28 Sept - 1 Oct 2015 - Inverness, Scotland

DAY 1: Using your Lecher antenna

Day 2-4: Theory and Practical Application of the ACMOS Method

ACMOS METHOD: Level 1 & 2 - 28 Sept - 1 Oct 2015

The Acmos Method views the body from both a matter and an energetic perspective. It is a philosophy which has its foundations in Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic Medicine and is underpinned by the certainty, based on years of experiential learning, that under optimum conditions the body functions intelligently and is able to manage its vulnerabilities and cope with its traumas.

We do not however live in optimum conditions and our electro-magnetic systems can become confused as we try to respond to the plethora of signals in our everyday environment; the challenges of our modern diet; the ‘stress’ we all feel under as we race about our daily lives.

The Acmos Method seeks to work with the body’s intelligence to restore equilibrium: our innate qualities of self-management, self-repair and self- healing. The communication tools we use are the Acmos Lecher antenna, the Acmos 7 Bio-feedback and the Acmograph chart.

Want to become a practitioner? Finish your training in Paris November 2015. Refreshers welcome.

Research: Seaweed for Iodine Sufficiency

(provided by the Seaweed Health Foundation)

Iodine, an important mineral element, contributes to normal thyroid, nervous system and cognitive function, the normal growth of children, normal energy-yielding metabolism, mammary gland and foetal development,[1] and the maintenance of normal skin. Yet in the UK and other parts of Europe iodine deficiency is epidemic,[2] highlighted by recent surveys which found iodine insufficiency among English school age girls[3] and Scottish women of child-bearing age.[4] Although obtainable from natural fish, meat and dairy products, certain sea vegetables are the ideal source.

Research: Seaweed for Iodine Sufficiency

Independent research at Glasgow University[5] organized by the Seaweed Health Foundation, has shown that dried granules of Seagreens® wild Wrack seaweed can improve iodine uptake in iodine-insufficient women, with no adverse effect on thyroid function. Bioavailability and uptake was compared with potassium iodide, commonly used to ‘iodize’ table salt. Seagreens®, which naturally contains the additional micronutrients needed for metabolism, showed a slower, more balanced and prolonged uptake of an adequate level of iodine.

Other researchers[6] have shown Seagreens to be an effective prebiotic, relevant in the Glasgow iodine research because colonic fermentation helped free the iodine for nutrition. At the same time the seaweed reduces the glycaemic response to carbohydrate load, and in an award-winning study at Sheffield Hallam University, overweight subjects were less hungry with no adverse effect on nutrient uptake.[7] A single vegetarian capsule of the pure seaweed provides approximately 350µg (micrograms) of daily iodine, with no additives.[8] Upper tolerable limits for absorbed daily iodine are 600µg in the EU and 1100µg in the USA.

Results RNA

The outstanding brand for Colloidal Silver, Heavy Metals detox and Immune support.

Results RNA is an American company with a passion for science based products, that are proven to work. Originally only available through registered health professionals, the Results RNA range is now available directly.

Results RNA

ACS 200 Extra Strength - The world’s most effective colloidal silver. With over 500 independent in-vitro kill time studies to back it up, ACS 200 has been proven over and over again to be the most powerful colloidal silver on the market. In fact most of the research that other brands quote regarding the efficacy of silver is actually based on the ACS 200 kill time studies. No other silver can even come close to achieving the kill time of ACS 200. In the most recent study with MRSA, the ACS 200 silver was found to be around 4,000 times more powerful than the next best brand.

ACZ Nano Extra Strength - For heavy metal detoxification, the ACZ Nano is one of the best and safest chelators available. This natural zeolite(a type of volcanic ash) has a cage like structure that irreversibly binds heavy metals and removes them via the urinary system. Other chelators can actually mobilize the metals and then redeposit them to other parts of the body, ACZ will not do this. It also has the highest affinity for the heaviest elements, so will preferentially bind Mercury before say Aluminium and because it has been pre-treated with Ca, K and Mg, it will replace the toxic metal with one that the body actually requires. Independently proven to be able to increase urinary output of Mercury by over a 1000 times.

ACG Glutathione Extra Strength - Glutathione (GSH) is one of the most critical molecules of the entire body. As the most important intracellular antioxidant, GSH regulates all other antioxidants while preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species, such as free radicals and peroxides.  Results RNA ACG Glutathione has been independently tested to be able to increase intracellular GSH levels by over 12% in 7hrs and can assist in helping the body maintain healthy functioning.

The Supercoherence System and the Supercoherence Return- to-Love Frequencies (SRTLFs)

London Workshop: 7-8 Nov

21st Century Life- Force Energy Management System

Supercoherence Return-to-Love Frenquencies (SRTLFs), developed by Thrity Engineer, are new Light-energy-information quantum tools to handle the challenges of the Light- Energy- information age. They are a consciousness technology and a tool for transformation. SRTLFs are light-energy-information encodings restoring Supercoherence in the bio-light Field. They contain non-Hertzian frequencies that bring us into an optimal balance, which align us with the Zero point field; and other frequencies that connect us with the heart centre.

The Supercoherence System and the Supercoherence Return- to-Love Frequencies (SRTLFs)

The SRTLFs are here on Earth to break the karmic cycle of suffering that has been present for the last few thousand years. They reconnect us directly, systematically and precisely to ZERO where past suffering is neutralized and clarity and coherence are re-established easily, immediately and effortlessly. The SRTLFs are a master reset button to the Source code of the Human, which goes way beyond the genetic code, is absolute love and extreme Intelligence; this exists in every human at all times, though very often it does not appear to be so.

SRTLFs do not contain any chemical substances - or anything measurable by traditional scientific instruments or methodologies. They Reconfigure - recalibrate - realign the human energy system with a quality of precision to supercoherence - a parameter of super function . Whole life healing and emotional health and intelligence are the resulting benefits.

Today there are studies including the Kaiser Permanente ACE study (Adverse Childhood Experiences) that show that old unresolved emotional trauma creates havoc in the body many decades later. A further study by the same company showed that childhood trauma affected worker performance and health adversely: serious job problems, financial problems and absenteeism. The Results showed strong graded relations were found between the ACE score and each measure of impaired worker performance, mediated by inter-personal relationship problems, emotional distress, somatic symptoms and substance abuse. Most of these trauma imprints lie at the subconscious level and cannot readily be accessed or changed through the talking therapies.

The SRTLFs clear the charge around trauma at the speed of Light. At their simplest level they are a powerful stress relief and life force energy management tool; at their most profound level they reconnect us to the energy of our heart-soul-spirit and enable us to remain clear, calm, balanced and loving in the most difficult circumstances. As we live in perhaps the most challenging times in human history where the old systems are falling apart and there appears to be no safety or certainty anywhere, the SRTLFs help us to face the uncertain present with courage, clarity and creativity.

Complementary Health Professionals (CHP) Launch at CAMEXPO 26th-27th Sept

  • What is your professional association doing for you?
  • What are the benefits of your annual subscription?

Carole Preen, Julie Quinn and Julia Wood, experienced therapists and qualified teachers, with over 75 years industry experience between them, having pondered these issues have created a new professional association Complementary Health Professionals (CHP) to be launched at CAMExpo Olympia on 26th and 27th September 2015 - Stand 1324. Carole  presents a Neuroskeletal Re-alignment Therapy Workshop on Saturday, Julie is giving a seminar on Fertility and Reflexology on Sunday. Visitors can win a CPD course of your choice, with the voucher valid up to December 2016.

Complementary Health Professionals (CHP) Launch at CAMEXPO 26th-27th Sept

The three directors, working as a team for City & Guilds, wrote the qualifications now recognized as industry standard for training in Body Massage, Aromatherapy and Reflexology, have advocated the need for regulation and represented various associations on the boards of all the major lead bodies since the late 1990s, are qualified teachers and have run their own training schools and worked as senior curriculum managers in further and adult education. And all three are in private practice working with clients including traumatised children, to pregnant women, to physically disabled, to professional dancers.

CHP is a merger of two long-standing associations; the Aromatherapy and Allied Practitioners’ Association (AAPA) and the British Neuroskeletal Re-alignment Therapy Association. CHP offers several categories of membership: the Premier Practitioner  membership (UK members only), basic full membership, student membership, international membership and non-practitioner membership.

Diploma and CPD Courses

CHP offers fully-recognized practitioner qualifications with a blend in Aromatherapy, Massage, Reflexology and Neuroskeletal Re-alignment Therapy. CHP offers blended learning diplomas which enables practitioners to study when they have the time, rather than attending regularly at a college. Students can work at their own pace; the diploma must be completed within two years. The courses are split into modules and practical workshops, on a pay as you go basis,  affordable and interest free. All of the theory is studied at home; students have access to a tutor for support and email queries. Certain diplomas such as CHP’s Essential Oil Therapy Diploma, are distance-learning only, designed for those who do not want to learn to massage but are still interested in blending oils for therapeutic purposes. This diploma also comes with insurance to practice once completed. CHP also offers an extensive range of CPD courses in London in many different modalities to suit everyone, designed to help students develop their practice, in order to best serve the needs of their clients and practice.

Stress - How to Help Yourself and Others -  Hypnotherapy Training International HTI

Clients tell me of their stress: 

“I’m constantly catching my breath, like there isn’t enough air”;

“I wake in the night and my thoughts start flooding in, I can’t get back to sleep”;

“I don’t feel like eating properly, it’s like there’s never enough time, then I binge on whatever’s around, usually junk”;

“I know I’m drinking too much, but it’s the only way I can get my mind to switch off”;

“I can’t remember the last time I felt really relaxed”.

Stress - How to Help Yourself and Others -  Hypnotherapy Training International HTI

The first helpful thing I can do is to give them the experience of the very deep relaxation that can be produced with hypnosis. Many have tried self-help methods with little success, as it’s hard to dig yourself out of a hole on your own. This is where hypnotherapy comes in, offering a big helping hand through hypnotic partnership.  Human imagination and emotional faculties can be powerfully activated by hypnotic suggestion; with hypnotherapy, it’s possible for the hypnotherapist to make direct contact with the client’s imagination and guide them into a profoundly relaxed state. The levels of mental and physical relaxation produced by hypnosis are reported by many clinicians to be the most profound that human beings experience in their lives.

A hypnotherapist is a personal trainer for your mind, who ensures you keep on track and that you get from A to B i.e. from stress to relaxation. Once in relaxation, you’re in a clearer state of mind, and can, if you choose, remain in pure relaxation for a while, beneficial in itself (like a deep rest). You can also move on to work on reducing the causes of your stress and your personal responses to stressors through other hypnotherapy methods. You can work on designing a new future for yourself.   Or you can work on changing things about yourself in the present that you don’t want any more, such as the way you interact with others in relationships, or the way you make resolutions and don’t keep them. Or you can work on how your past interferes with your present, and resolve the ties in your own mind that bind you in this way. Or you can work on all of these, moving from past to present to future. Learning self-hypnosis gives you the power to greatly help yourself with all the above.

A properly-trained hypnotherapist can give direct help in the areas where our imagination, memories, and emotional thinking affect our lives.  Hypnotherapy is one of the most powerful and effective ways of gaining access to the resources we need to convert our energies from stress to confidence and health.

HTI’s upcoming courses the UK (London) are

  • Clinical Hypnotherapy 14-19 September 2015;
  • Hypnosis for Therapeutic Transformation 5-10 October 2015;
  • Medical Hypnotherapy 30 November-5 December 2015;
  • Advanced Analytical Hypnotherapy 8-13 February 2016.

Individual and Group Alexander Technique Lessons at Bloomsbury Alexander Centre

The Alexander Technique improves the way we use ourselves in everyday activity. Unconsciously acquired habits in movements such as standing, walking or sitting distort the body and interfere with its natural functioning. We respond to stimuli by overtensing and/or collapsing - literally winding ourselves up (or down!). This 'mis-use' results in aches, pains, tension, fatigue or simply in feeling ill-at-ease in one's body. The Technique helps us to prevent these unnecessary reaction/habit patterns and to restore our natural 'good use' of ourselves. The Alexander Technique is not a quick fix. It is a way of learning, and a way of changing, and these things take time and application.

Christina Codina Llaviner

Cristina Codina Llavina, Teacher at Bloomsbury Alexander Centre

7 Oct – 10 Oct 9am- 17:30pm
GEOVITAL ACADEMY United Kingdom, Hasting VICTN34

This 3-day workshop teaches you the basics of Radiation Assessment and Protection.

GEOVITAL has been addressing radiation issues in patient’s/client’s homes in a holistic manner that has shown lasting benefit for decades now. GEOVITAL is becoming an authority on radiation protection because of their knowledge of what works in practice and works long-term. This knowledge is shared in this workshop to encourage people to take control of their home situation. Geovital hope you will join their network to help people in your area.

Geovital Logo + Radiation Protection

Anyone can join and utilize this knowledge as a stand-alone service, in a health setting (doctors, therapists, naturopaths…) or in a home construction setting (architects, builders, electricians…). Seemingly complex subjects are easily explained in theory but also in practice. Attendees will be busy with theoretical components and also many practical experience both in a ‘home’ and in the field.


  • Electronic pollution in the home: Different types of radiation often found in homes and their sources;
  • Geopathic stress: Different types of excesses of natural radiation and their value;
  • Measurement of radiation: Which instrument to use when and how;
  • Radiation protection (elimination and shielding): Understand the available product solutions for creating a better home environment;
  • Health risks to people, animals and plants;
  • The business of offering home radiation assessment and consultations.

Practical components:

  • Testing for and measuring different radiation types, using instruments;
  • Testing for and measuring different Geopathic stresses, using professional divining techniques;
  • Conducting a home assessment where your new learned skills come together;
  • Testing of wiring and developing a solution approach;
  • Record keeping of your assessment.

Any work in the area of radiation protection or shielding starts with this workshop whether you are an architect, doctor, therapist, sleep consultant, painter, electrician or someone with no ties to any of these professions. If you wish to work with radiation protection you must first learn the basics to understand the relationship between cause and effect.

    Amino Acids Boost Heart Health

    Eating foods rich in amino acids could be as good for your heart as stopping smoking or getting more exercise, according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). A new study published in the Journal of Nutrition reveals that people who eat high levels of certain amino acids found in meat and plant-based protein, have lower blood pressure and arterial stiffness.

Researchers studied the effect of seven amino acids on cardiovascular health among 2,000 women with a healthy BMI. Data came from TwinsUK - the biggest UK adult twin registry of 12,000 twins.

    Strength Loss Spicy Solution

    If you are training hard, a loss of short term muscle strength is an inevitable part of exercise. In a recent study researchers asked participants to perform high intensity arm exercises which induced muscle damage. Prior to the exercise, half of the participants had taken a ginger supplement for five days and the other half had taken a placebo. Twenty-four hours after exercise, as expected, both groups had lost significant arm strength, however the two groups differed in how quickly the strength loss improved. In the group who had taken the ginger, strength improved 48 hours after exercise, where the placebo group however, didn’t improve until 72 hours after exercise. Natur Boutique’s Organic Ginger Tea is made solely from 100% pure organic ginger.

Over two days, the participants consumed precisely the same number of calories and the same balanced meal for lunch and dinner. The only difference was that one day they ate breakfast and the second day they fasted until lunch.

    Medications Link to Men Falls

    Research from the University of East Anglia has shown that serious falls are twice as likely in older men who take medicines with anti-cholinergic properties, which is commonly prescribed for older people with bladder problems, depression, psychosis, insomnia and respiratory problems. The results have been published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society. Medications with anticholinergic properties affect the brain by blocking a acetylcholine, involved in passing messages between nerve cells. This can lead to side effects including blurred vision, increased heart rate, sedation and confusion.
