After you've been Reiki attuned, is it possible for the universal healing energy to leave or atrophy?

I am Reiki attuned (level II) and have been for just over a year. Sometimes I feel like the energy does not flow through me very strongly. I want to feel it more strongly. I've asked my spirit guides to allow the energy to flow intensely, but this doesn't seem to help. Any suggestions or information?

There are those who do Reiki and those who live Reiki.

Once you are attuned you are always attuned. Sometimes the energy is flowing just as strongly but you do not get to feel it move through you, only the person receiving. I have had days where I can not feel the energy but I do the session properly and trust that the energy is doing its thing and it always does.

Also you may want to take an inventory to see how clean and sensitive a vessel you are on any given day. This can influence your effectiveness ad a conduit.

Do you eat and drink healthy, minimally processed foods? Do you sleep enough, drink enough water? Do you drink alcohol, use drugs, take medications, eat a lot of sugar or meat? Do you pray and /or meditate daily? Do you spend time in nature? Do you do daily self healing? Do you use your Reiki frequently?

All of these things can make a difference in your intuition and sensitive perception of the energy as well as how smoothly the energy can move through you and how much can move through you at any given time.

The cleaner you live and the more you are in touch with your spirit and in the flow of the Reiki energy the more effective you will be as a healer. You can chose a less pure lifestyle and still the Reiki will work through you because of your willingness but you will be less effective.  (+ info)

What is severe atrophy and cortical thinning of the right kidney?

what to do to stay healthy?

Wow, what a heavy question. I hope you are speaking to a medical professional about your concerns if someone in your family has been diagnosed with these conditions.

Severe atrophy in a general sense is a partial or complete wasting away of the body. Any major organ can atrophy. Atrophy is brought on by a number of things, most commonly: lack of nutrition, lack of exercise, lack of nutrition or severe nerve damage.

Severe atrophy is often found in the elderly that are bed ridden.

Cortical thinning of any kidney essentially means, in a very general way, the shrinking of the kidney. The kidney is basically getting smaller because the cortical nephrons (on the outside of the kidney) is thinning. This can be brought on by a number of things.

I have only begin to study nephrology, but cortical thinning often leads to renal failure. Renal failure is essentially when the kidneys fail to function adequately. There are two types of renal failure (one with urine output and the other with very little or no urine output) and they are not life threatening if a transplant, removal or dialysis is performed. Of course, that is depending on the severity of the disease that caused renal failure.

The two symptoms you described are often found in the elderly, the paralyzed, or people in a coma.

The best way to stay healthy in this situation is a hard question to answer. This is depending on what has atrophied and how severe it is. If the muscles are atrophying then exercising, stretching and massaging the muscles can make the pain more bearable and hopefully prevent further damage. Cortical thinning, if leads to renal failure, can only be helped by dialysis. It is very hard to lead a healthy and productive lifestyle with these two problems. I suggest that you listen to your doctors and keep holding on.

I hope no one you know if currently experiencing these conditions. I wish you the best.  (+ info)

I had facial atrophy beneath my eyes due to applying a topical steroid, now i look sunken what can i do?

please no surgery and creams, worth top doller to restore it.

It's hard to offer suggestions without knowing how badly "sunken" it looks beneath your eyes. Is this very serious?

I can recommend an under-eye cream with a high dose of retinol, because this purified version of Vitamin A increases your skin's collagen production making skin more supple. (Roc has a good under-eye brand with retinol, it's in a gold box. Available at Target, Walgreen's, CVS, Wal-Mart, etc.)

Next make sure you are consuming enough fluids and eating a diet full of vitamins. You'll need plenty of iron which help your under eyes look less sallow and dark so eat lots of leafy greens. Eat mostly fruits and vegetables but be sure to get enough protien in your diet.

I wish you luck!  (+ info)

How do you strengthen muscles that have started to atrophy?

the muscles in my hamstrings on the back of my knee are so weak I cant even stand for and extended period of time without straining tendons and ligaments. What is a way I can gradually begin to strengthen these muscles to prevent further injury?

My suggestion is three-fold. Do leg curls, making your heel come up to knee-level. When you feel ready for it, add a bit of weight to your foot/ankle for extra resistance. Do 20 reps at a time on each leg.
The simple task of walking is another idea. Take long steps.
Third is stretching. I am betting that you are not very flexible back there. Reach down towards your knees or farther and hold a gentle stretch.
The improvement you seek will take time and seem to progress very slowly. Be patient, because that is the best way to get a limb rehabbed.  (+ info)

How does sexual activity (copulation, manual, etc.) effect my muscle mass?

I read on a question on muscle and masturbation, that jerkin it atrophies the muscle and this makes sense. What do you know about the subject? Any good sources I should read?

Makes no sense at all that a bit of solo sex daily has any impact on your muscle mass. Guys build up muscle to look good and get girls to have sex with them, and well built guys tend to perform longer in bed and have more sex too, so makes no sense that ejaculating weakens you or reduces muscle mass in any way. Solo sex burns only about 100 calories, dude, like walking up a couple of flights of stairs. It doesn't produce some mystical or magical effect on your muscles nor does it pour out testosterone or use it up. Just silly ideas with no merit. Guys are designed to have sex, and can do so daily or more often. Actual intercourse actually burns more calories than solo sex since you are more physically active, and that helps tone certain muscles too.
I can guarentee that stud on the beach with a six pack is getting a lot more action than the 97 pound weakling, and which one has weak muscles? Muscle development and maintenance of muscle tone is a product of exercise, and exercises targeting certain muscle groups. Sex has no impact on it at all. Just man's favorite hobby  (+ info)

Is it true that vegan diet causes your muscles to atrophy?

I was reading a medical journal that said a vegan diet causes muscles to atrophy. It said the lack of complete proteins in a vegan diet causes muscles to waste away. Is this why vegans lack the muscle tone of someone who is eating a well balanced diet?
andielep and Princess, I have reported you both.

Let me guess. You are, in fact, Foxhunter Guy. Your account was closed down by Yahoo and so you opened a new one with a new name.


EDIT- Reported me and andielep for what?! Lol. You make me laugh. Which is amazing, considering all the muscles laughter uses, and I haven't eaten meat in 14 years. I'm a freakin' miracle child, I am.  (+ info)

Is it possible to have something like POS which is caused from too much estrogen, and vaginal atrophy too?

If vaginal atrophy is from too little estrogen and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is from too much estrogen, is it possible to have them both?

PCOS is a group of symptoms and not everyone has every symptom. In some PCOS women, they will have a lowered level of estrogen and elevated male hormone, which can cause excess facial and body hair. There are blood tests and other tests to determine PCOS.  (+ info)

Is there any cure or treatment now for optic nerve atrophy?

I've had optic nerve atrophy ever since I was a boy and I'm wondering if there is any cure. I've seen from western websties that there is no treatment but what about eastern viewpoints or other viewpoints. My condition is stable and with glasses corrected in both eyes is 20/200. I am still pronounced legally blind by opthamologists and they said that there is nothing that can be done and it won't get any worse but the downside is that it can't get any better they told me. I suffer from eye strain and myopia & I get terrible headaches. I tried accupuncture but it doesn't help (maybe headaches for about a year if I take 10 treatments). I heard there is electrical stimulation but I am skeptical and I don't know if herbs might work or not because I tried one time & nothing happened. Do you know if there is any cure or treatment possiblity or am I going to have to go through life blind the rest of my life? If there is anything, PLEASE HELP, PLEASE HELP!! I want to see & drive a car one day.

I'll pray for you....  (+ info)

Does your testosterone count cut in half if you get atrophy in 1 testicle?

Basically if you lose function in one testicle or if you get it removed?

When you loose a testicle, there will be a slight "SHORT TERM" loss in testosterone level, but it will never drop down to half. The testicles are eficient, and never need to run max out to satisfy the demand.

The pineal gland will sense a slight drop, and will signal the pituitary gland to signal the testicles to produce more testosterone. The pituitary gland will put out a chemical signal into the blood stream, that the testicles will regagnize. The signal will be a command for the testicles to up the production of testosterone. The by-product of that increased production will also be more sperm to make up for what the lost one had produced.

Since there is only one testicle, the single remaining testicle will responde with an increase in production of testosterone.
The pituitary gland will continue giving out a chemical comand to increase the production until the single testicle is with ease, able to meet the equal amount of testosterone that had been originally produced from two testicles, and still have spare capacity to produce. It may need to increase in size to meet the demand of greater cpacity, so it will get somewhat larger. The testesterone level after is equal to two testicles production, with reserve to spare, except now there is no spare if something happens to the second, which isn't likely.

The change adjustment back to "good normal testosterone level" only takes a couple of weeks, and the drop may not even be noticed, because when the pituitary gland is calling for more testosterone, the sex drive goes up to match that demand, as in puberty.

The body thermostat type control here, will then level off to hold the free testosterone level at what it had been with two testicles.

The urologist can now put an artificial testicle of size match into the sack where the missing one is, to give a balanced look and feel.

The body has two organs in each case, where critical systems are concerned, like two lungs, two kidneys, two liver to some extent, two brain lobes, and two testicles. Nature considered a Dudes sex life to be a critical system. When one critical organ fails, the second takes over to make up for both.

We probably would have had two hearts, but the complexity of tying to run two pumps into the vascular system makes that impossible.

The dual organs is called redundancy!

Hope that answers your onfo. request Dude

Me! :- )
