1. Жёстко положить левую руку под центр грудной клетки (на солнечное сплетение — H.B.) и накрыть правой рукой. Прижать локти к телу.
2. Сделать глубокий вдох, задержать дыхание и надавить телом на руки, а руками давить на тело. Чем дольше выдержите, тем лучше.
3. Сделать свободный выдох и опутить руки. Повторить ещё 2 раза.
4. На вдохе обхватить правой рукой левую сторону талии. На выдохе с давлением потянуть пальцы к пупку. Повторить несколько раз.
5. Повторить с другой стороны.
Схема меридианов мышц
1. Найти на рис. 43 мышцу, которая находится в районе боли.
2. Найти меридиан, который ей соответствует.
3. На рис. 26 найти точки меридиана. Заметьте, что там есть точки расслабления "первые" и "вторые".
4. Подержать точки расслабления, надписанные как "первые" 2-3 минуты.
5. Подержать точки расслабления, надписанные как "вторые" 1,5-2 минуты
Схема меридианов зубов
Действовать аналогично схеме маридианов мышц.
1. По рис. 45 найти зону боли.
2. Найти число, соответствующее зоне. Если боль ниже пояса, то искать число на лодыжке (А на диаграмме), если боль выше пояса, то искать число на запястье (W на диаграмме).
3. Если боль в передней части тела (инь), постукивать внутреннюю часть лодыжки или запястья. Если боль в задней части тела (янь), постукивать наружную часть лодыжки или запястья.
4. Найти на диаграмме лодыжки или запястья точку, соответствующую боли. А3 означает, что ваша боль в зоне 3 ниже пояса.
5. Постукивать точку примерно 10 раз. остановиться на 10 секунд. Затем снова постукать примерно 1,5 минуты.
6. Боль обычно продолжает уменьшаться в течение 10 минут после прекращения постукивания. Если боль осталась, проделать то же самое с другой стороной тела.
1. Найти меридиан, в котором находится боль (рис. 10-23)
2. Расположить палец одной руки в центр боли, палец другой руки - в начало меридиана. Твёрдо надавить на обоими пальцами.
3. Боль всегда имеет двойника. Не отрывая пальца от места боли, медленно продвинуться вдоль меридиана одновременно обеими руками, пока не найдёте новое место боли. Это примерно на ширину пальца.
4. Одновременно держать первое и второе места боли, пока боль не пройдёт в одном из мест.
5. Сдвинуть палец с точки, которая больше не болит. Если это 2-я, то двигать палец к 1-й. Если это 1-я, то двигать палец от другого пальца, к концу меридиана. Продолжать, пока не найдёте новое место боли. Повторить шаг 4.
6. Если 2 пальца соединились, то сдвинуть палец от неболезненной точки по направлению к противоположному концу меридиана.
7. В конечном итоге один палец окажется на конце меридиана и боль можно выдавить. Если боль "застряла", то подержать акупунктурные седативные точки на конце меридиана (рис. 26)

Your body needs the Earth's electromagnetic field. A disorder that developed in Japanese industrial workers who spent long hours in metal buildings that shielded them from the Earth's natural magnetic field, called magnetic field deficiency syndrome, included such symptoms as insomnia, decreased energy, and generalized aches and pains. The application of artificial magnetic fields alleviated these symptoms.2 A similar syndrome was seen in Russian cosmonauts who, after more than a year in space, had lost 80 percent of their bone density. After strong artificial magnetic fields were introduced into spacecraft, this ailment was no longer a problem in space travel.
We usually don't think of biological tissue as being affected by magnetic fields. Iron filings, steel spoons, and compass needles seem to be made of an altogether different substance than human flesh. It turns out, however, that in addition to the iron in your blood, all life-forms contain tiny crystals of magnetite, a natural magnetic mineral comprised of black iron oxide. This magnetite continually registers changes in your relationship to the Earth's electromagnetic field, and helps orient you to that field. Magnetite is the original lodestone used by some preliterate people in healing potions and ceremonies. The magnetite crystals in your body are so small that they can only be seen through an electron microscope.
The concentration of the magnetite crystals found in the human brain is considerably less than the concentration of magnetite found in birds, bees, and fish. Scientists have speculated that magnetite in animals helps them with navigation. The magnetite in bacteria, in fact, turns them into "swimming compass needles that orient with respect to the earth's magnetic field." The relatively small concentration in humans may explain why we cannot, by sense alone, navigate as well as the birds and the bees, but it is strong enough to offer part of the explanation for the health effects of natural and artificial magnetic fields.
Vested interests in government and industry have been more than a little reluctant to acknowledge the potential adverse impact of artificially generated electromagnetic fields on health, but in my practice I frequently see the fallout on human lives. While these fields do not lead to appreciable harm in most people, sensitive individuals can be devastated. At one time, miners would send a canary into a mine shaft to test for poisonous gases. If the canary stopped singing, they knew it had died and the shaft was contaminated. People who are particularly sensitive to electromagnetic fields have been the "canaries," but the problem is accelerating.
Hundreds of studies over the past three decades looking into the health impact of electromagnetic fields have produced mixed findings. As with the mixed research results on the dangers of smoking, vested interests shape outcomes. A highly publicized and influential report released in 1996 by a panel of the prestigious National Academy of Sciences' National Research Council concluded that electromagnetic fields pose no real health threat. Less publicized, however, is the panel's finding that children living near power lines do indeed have elevated rates of leukemia. When asked what is responsible, if not electromagnetic fields, "the committee members said they didn't know." The National Research Council's findings have been criticized for having excluded some of the most important existing studies that do reveal the health-related dangers of electromagnetic fields. An earlier report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) did indeed find a link between electromagnetic fields and cancer. The Air Force and White House apparently tried to suppress this report because it "might be unnecessarily alarming to the public," but some EPA staff members were themselves so alarmed that they leaked a draft copy of the findings to the press. The suppressed report concluded:
Studies showing leukemia, lymphoma, and cancer of the nervous system in children exposed to magnetic fields from residential 60 Hz electrical power distribution S)׳stems, supported by similar findings in adults in several occupational studies also involving electrical power frequency exposures, show a consistent pattern of response that suggests, but does not prove, a causal link.
While the electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) "found within the natural world are harmonious with and supportive of life . . . artificially created EMFs are 100—200 million times greater than what existed just two generations ago." The barrage of artificial EMFs can harden cell membranes, alter DNA, and "adversely impact hormone production and neurological processes [leading to] more rapid aging, elevated blood glucose levels, elevated lipid levels, high blood pressure, increased neuron-regulatory disturbances, and it compromises the central nervous, cardiovascular, and immune systems." The health effects can be devastating. For instance, people whose work exposes them to elevated EMFs, such as telephone linemen, have been shown to have as much as sixfold the incidence of certain types of cancer.
A 2002 report on EMFs by the National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS) of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, after reviewing findings from conservative organizations such as the American Medical Association and the American Cancer Society suggesting little cause for alarm, concluded: "Although scientists are still debating whether EMF is a hazard to health, the NIEHS recommends continued education on ways of reducing exposures."12 While industrial and government organizations with a stake in the status quo still find the evidence connecting electromagnetic exposure with illness to be inconclusive, sites such as www.emfpollution.com link to articles that are alarming, and persuasive, in telling a different story.
There is no question in my mind that our continual and inescapable exposure to human-made electromagnetic fields has adverse subclinical effects for many people, draining and scrambling their energies, and that many illnesses are caused or exacerbated by this exposure. Video displays, cell phones, power lines, transformers, electric blankets, fluorescent lights, and microwave ovens are all possible culprits. Countering this problem has become an increasingly important challenge within my own practice. While it is still a largely uncharted area, I can suggest a few strategies if you suspect that electromagnetic fields—whether artificially generated or created by the earth's mineral deposits or "energy vortexes"—are adversely affecting your health.

17. Because the traditional triple warmer alarm point is also a powerful treatment point (called the dantien), it is not reliable when used in the alarm point test. But you can test triple warmer by laying your fingers on its neurovascular points. One is at the base of the throat, as indicated in the text. The other is at the temples just outside the eyebrows.
18. If energy is stuck in the root chakra, this test will not be reliable. An alternative point is in the middle of the gluteus maximus muscle.

Meanwhile, energy spiraling up from the earth is yin, and it spirals counterclockwise. Energy spiraling down irom the heavens is yang, and it spirals clockwise. You end the chakra balancing at a man's crown chakra with counterclockwise spirals because this calls more yin energies up to meet and balance the yang energies coming down from the heavens. You end the chakra balancing at a woman's crown chakra with clockwise spirals because this calls more yang energy down from the heavens to meet and balance the yin energies coming up from the earth.

6. Along with seven concentric bands that roughly correspond with the seven chakras, discussed in Chapter 6, the aura also has seven nested energy fields. Some of these are described in indigenous healing traditions. I call them, starting with the innermost: the etheric field, the protective field, the mental/emotional field, the morphogenic field, the celestial field, the Celtic weave (which also permeates the body), and the life color. I describe this in greater detail in a paper called "The Human Aura," available as a free download from our Energy Medicine Handout Bank (www.FIandoutBank.org).
