Believing the Unbelievable

November 18, 2012

Did you hear the recent news about a Canadian crash victim, who has been in a vegetative state for more than 10 years and has told scientists through the power of thought that he is not in pain?

Did you know that Edgar Mitchell, the NASA astronaut in Apollo 13 transmitted symbols back to earth using nothing more than the power of thought?

Did you read about Taurus, a submarine that was submerged to a depth of 558 feet [170m] so that it would be out of the range of ELF [extremely low frequencies]. Despite this electromagnetic isolation, a highly experienced Remote Viewer [as part of a research study funded by the CIA at Stanford University] was still able to describe the precise location of 2 colleagues who had been sent to an unknown destination by a 3rd party, at the simultaneous time of her ‘viewing’.

These are just 3 types of communication which are real and have been documented. They stretch our imagination and force us to accept facts that we once thought were impossible and unbelievable.

The idea that I have programmed and energised my range of skincare [Celgenics] with ‘healing energy’ from a variety of energy medicine therapies is probably, for some people, also hard to accept.

There’s a well known quotation:    “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident”
Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 – 1860)

Out of my work as a therapist, I developed the range for a client who was allergic to conventional skincare with its many toxic chemicals.  Because I work with many ‘energy medicine’ therapies, my light-bulb moment was to incorporate the work I do in my practice into my creams and to send my healing message out into the world.

Fortunately, I am in good company – Dr. Larry Dossey, M.D. the highly respected author of nine books and numerous articles,  has lectured all over the world in major medical schools, on the subject of “nonlocal mind” .  That is, mind and thoughts not confined to the brain and body but that spread throughout space and time!

It’s a radical shift for our logical minds but many leading scientists are increasingly accepting this new ‘truth’ that offers us a totally different image of consciousness!

The Ten Deadly (Skincare) Sins

The Ten Deadly (Skincare) Sins

What’s in your skin cream? Any ideas? Thought not. The ingredients lists on cosmetics’ packaging can confuse even the most clued-up label lover. Marian Bourne who created Celgenics shares her tips on what to look out for.

What comes out of the lab isn't always good for your skin

Many products made by leading cosmetics brands contain unfathomable lists of ingredients that can be harmful to not only ourselves, but the environment around us. You need to be armed with the information on what you should be avoiding. So what are the top 10 chemicals to avoid to guarantee you’re not using highly toxic ingredients?

1. Parabens
Otherwise known as methyl, ethyl, propyl, butly (sounding rather like the registration call for a 1930s girls’ school classroom), and also hydoxy methyl benzoates. Parabens are artificial preservatives which can give a product up to seven years of shelf life. They’ve been linked to cancer, they’re neurotoxic and they have hormone-disrupting qualities which mimic oestrogen and interfere with the body’s endocrine system. This is a cluster of glands, each of which secretes a type of hormone directly into your bloodstream to regulate your body.

2. Synthetic Colours and Fragrances
Many colours in make-up and fragrances are carcinogenic – defined, this means a substance or radiation that’s an agent directly involved in causing cancer. Labelled as FD&C or D&C, these are followed by a colour and a number. Fragrances for women can contain up to 200 single ingredients. They can also cause many side effects such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, irritation and so on. Both are found in nearly all chemical-based products and cosmetics.

3. Propylene Glycol
This is used as a moisturiser – ideally this is vegetable glycerin mixed with grain alcohol, both of which are natural and have virtually no toxicity.   But usually, it’s a synthetic petrochemical mix and labelled as PEG or PPG. They can often cause an allergic reaction, including dermatitis, kidney or liver abnormalities and could inhibit the growth of your skin cells, or cause skin irritation.

4. Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate
A cheap and harsh detergent that is strong enough to degrease an engine! SLS provides the foaming and cleaning action in toothpastes, shampoos, soaps and body washes. Not surprisingly, it easily penetrates the skin and helps other chemicals to penetrate.  It’s sometimes disguised on the label as having been derived from coconut – this too can cause eye and skin irritation.

5. Formaldehyde
Labelled as diazolidinyl urea or imidazolidinyl urea, these chemicals release formaldehyde – a colourless gas that is commonly used to preserve the dead that seems a strange choice for beauty products! It can cause irritation to the eyes, skin and lungs and is a known carcinogen.

6. Diethanolamine (DEA) and Triethanolamine (TEA)
Often used in cosmetics as emulsifiers and/or foaming agents. They can cause allergic reactions, eye irritation and dryness of hair and skin. They are carcinogenic and toxic if absorbed into the body over a long period of time.

7. Toluene
This is poison!  It’s harmful if inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Made from petroleum or coal tar, it’s found in many synthetic fragrances. Long-term exposure has been linked to anaemia, low blood cell count, liver/kidney damage, and it may even affect a developing foetus – so if you’re pregnant, it’s a nasty it’s very much best to avoid. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) contains toluene. Other names may include benzoic and benzyl.

8. Petrolatum
Commonly known as mineral oil jelly, liquid vaseline, paraffinum and baby oil!  It’s derived from petroleum products and is often mixed with paraffin oil derivatives. These products coat the skin like a plastic so your pores get clogged, and your skin can’t breathe. The ensuing build-up of toxins can lead to acne, dermatitis and photosensitivity, or rash.

9. Carincogens

Watch out for Acrylamide, Bisphenol-A (BPA), Butyl benzyl phthalate, Coal tar dyes, Green 5, Orange 7, Red 3,4,8,9,17,19,33, mineral oils and Nitrofurazone.

10. Skin Whiteners
These are a combination of the hormone cortisone and hydroquinone. Frankly, you shouldn’t see hydroquinone in any European product, because it has been banned. However, if you see it in a product on the internet, don’t be tempted, it’s carcinogenic and may pose a risk of leukemia.

There are many other ingredients to watch out for. A good rule of thumb is to look out for abbreviations e.g. (DEA) or (TEA) in brackets and chemical chain names e.g. stearalkonium chloride. New laws are due to be enforced over the next few years, which should hopefully bring a better understanding of cosmetic ingredient risks. The cosmetics industry may soon find that it has to justify everything that goes into its products – and not before time!

Do your cosmetics contain these nasties? Why not have a rummage through and let me know?

Energy Medicine and Celgenics

February 25, 2010

I thought it would be helpful if I explained the energy aspect of Celgenics creams.

Celgenics – Skin For The Future – is skin care for the 21st century.

The underlying theory is based on the fact that every cell in the body vibrates at a particular frequency and emits energy. The fact that our cells and organs give out energy is not new. At the turn of 19th/20th century, a Dutch doctor, Dr Einthoven, received a Nobel Prize for the discovery that various illnesses vibrate at different frequencies and that heart electricity could be measured. This discovery ultimately led to modern day electrocardiograms measuring the electrical output of the heart and detecting disturbances of heart rate, rhythm and electrical conduction. Dr. Mae Wan-Ho has stated that the heart’s electrical activity is fifty times greater than that of the brain. Another example of measuring energy from the body is thermographic imaging techniques, which map patterns of light and heat emitted by cells, tissues, organs and the whole body.

In the same way that the body is a complex system of vibrating energy which creates an energy field, so too does informational [vibrational] energy medicine have an energy field. The principle of combining the two is based on the idea of resonant frequencies, similar to a tuned string on a musical instrument resonating with anything tuned to the same frequency. James Oschman in his book “Energy Medicine. The Scientific Basis” has stated that all life depends upon molecules interacting through vibrating energy fields and it is on this basis that Celgenics skincare has been developed.

Both disease and the ageing process alter the vibratory resonance of cells, tissues, organs and indeed, your skin. Celgenics skin care provides the vibrational information that your body can use to improve the vibratory resonance and help skin repair and rejuvenation. The vibrational energy is carried by the cream into your skin; dermal absorption has been well established with the use of hormone and nicotine patches prescribed by doctors.

Celgenics – Skin for the Future – works with the fact that we are vibrational, energetic beings that can respond to the vibrational information from energy medicine.
