How Does The Vibrational Frequency of Red Roses Heal?

Red Roses

Albert Einstein taught us through E = mc 2 that all things in life emit vibrational frequencies and that all things are simply energy in different vibrational forms. Basically, this means every cell that makes up you is energy as well as all colors on the spectrum wheel, therefore the energy of colors can affect your energy. It’s really that simple! Color Therapy uses color to assist the body in using its natural healing ability to balance itself. Color supports our vital life force by supplying light frequencies to our vibrational energetic system. In ancient times Egyptians built rooms that reflected the sun’s energy with different colors of glass because they understood that color affects people in different ways.

Our eyes can change light into electricity, which travels to our central nervous system and directs all body function. Each specific color frequency gets attracted to the area of our body that recognizes that specific vibrational frequency. In turn this can cause hormonal and cellular changes to occur in our electrical system, thereby bringing the body into balance with that specific color.

All seven colors on the spectrum make up white light, but if you separate them out, each color has its own specific vibration. Colors on the spectrum vibrate at different speeds, with red vibrating the slowest and purple vibrating the fastest. Red’s slower vibration is just above heat and has the ability to stimulate our bodies physically.

The specific areas of the body related to the color red are the base of the spine, the adrenal glands, kidneys and bladder, colon, spinal column, legs, and our vital force: the blood. Red represents iron, the substance in our veins that turns our blood red. It’s also associated with the fiery planet Mars–ruler of war, passion, and lust. Red is related to our physical bodies, our ability to self-preserve, survival instincts, primal needs, feeling grounded and secure, basic instincts, physical activity and being courageous. It is also connected to the feeling of “having” things. Essentially all things related to the first chakra energy level or all things associated with the lower body region.

Dr. Robert O. Becker, in his book, “Body Electric” states that the human body has a measurable electrical frequency and the state of health in a human can be measured by his overall vibrational frequency. Generally, a healthy body will resonate between 62-78 hz. Our body’s energy can be affected by thoughts, other people, environment, even toxic-laden food. It may interest you to know on the eve of Valentine’s Day, that the red rose has the highest vibrational frequency known among all flowers, resonating at a whopping 320 hz! No wonder we use it to woo our loved ones on that special day. Doesn’t that make sense? Have you ever suddenly had your breath taken away by a gorgeous, resonating bouquet of red roses (especially if they were for you!)? Think of what you do when given a red rose. Most people snuggle their nose into the rose to breathe in the scent and vibration. It’s as if somehow we intrinsically know the power of the color red and the beautiful geometry of rose mixed together will bring us to a higher state of consciousness. Who doesn’t want to reach Nirvana in a breath of a second? Outside of smelling roses, inhaling rose essential oils or placing one drop of it on the bottom of your feet or chest on the heart point will also raise your vibration. Studies show essential oils placed on the skin enter the body within 6-21 minutes. Voila, easy vibration fix!

So this Valentine’s Day (and beyond!) enjoy the good vibrations and rebalance your energy by wearing red and smelling the high frequencies of roses and rose essential oil. Contact the office if you want to get some rose essential oil for yourself or your loved ones!

Using Essential Oils to Heal

YL essential oils

What’s all the craze lately about Essential Oils or (E.O.) you might be asking yourself?

Well if you haven’t heard by now, there are literally HUNDREDS of different applications for them. Essential oils are the aromatic liquids found within shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, resins, and seeds. Some people like to call essential oils “nature’s living energy” because they contain unique constituents that provide a host of benefits.

Most essential oils are extracted from plant sources using steam distillation and are highly concentrated, making them far more potent than dried botanicals.  Essential Oils are not perfumes, although they can be used like them to achieve a desired smell or response in the body. Pure E.O.’s contain no artificial, processed or synthetic chemicals. Since everything we put on the skin is absorbed by capillaries that circulate in the body, you want to be sure the E.O. you are using is free of pesticides, synthetic constituents, chemicals and any other unwanted adulterated product. There are some researchers that report essential oils are better absorbed from areas of the body with greater concentrations of sweat glands and hair follicles, such as the head, feet, hands and armpits (Battaglia, 2003). Personally, I like the application to the hands and especially the feet. It is very effective and feels great.

Two great ways to use the oils is to diffuse them into the air or apply them to your body. Diffusing oils work because when you inhale the oils the active ingredients go directly to the limbic system (area of the brain responsible for emotion) which is responsible for memory, hormones, blood pressure, breath rate, and stress levels. This explains why smell triggers physiological and psychological responses in people. Some people like to dilute the oils in a carrier oil because people can have different reaction to the “neat” or undiluted oil itself. While many people are able to use the neat version of the oil, there are still sensitive individuals such as children and animals that you definitely should dilute the oil before application.

A carrier oil is a vegetable oil such as coconut oil or grapeseed oil that can be used to dilute EO. Carrier oils ensure that EOs applied topically do not cause any irritation to the skin. Don’t worry, dilution with a carrier oil will not dilute the effect of the EO and it helps prevents any waste due to excessive application. Please do not use vegetable shortening, butter, margarine or any petroleum derivatives (e.g. baby oil or mineral oil)–they should never be used as carrier oils. Some users choose to avoid olive oil as a carrier oil because of it has a strong smell. My favorites are coconut oil for its anti-inflammatory effects and jojoba oil for its skin softening properties. Below is a chart for recommendations on how to dilute.

Carrier Oil 1% 2% 5% 10%
1 tsp 1 drop 2 drops 5 drops 10 drops
1 TB 3 drops 6 drops 15 drops 30 drops
1 fl. oz. 6 drops 12 drops 30 drops 60 drops

I generally recommend 2%-5% dilution for most people.

There are so many ways to use essential oils in your daily life and health, below are some fantastic ways to begin replacing toxic chemicals in your home and life with more natural, safe and effective products. For recipes, please click here.


I have seen some very wonderful results using Essential Oils and I know from research and experience that they are not all made alike! Most store bought oils are synthetic or adulterated and not worth your health or money. You certainly need to pick and choose carefully the quality of the oils you use on your skin as well as your loved ones. If you are interested in using Young Living Essential Oils–the brand I use, love, and trust–please email me at to order and learn how to buy them.

Lyme Disease and Cannabis Oil


Hmmmmm… Interesting article!

Natural News: Cannabis Kicks Lyme Disease to the Curb


Cold, Low-Level Laser Healing for Soft-Tissue Injuries

The Erchonia “Cold”, Low-Level Laser (LLL) has been called “The Therapy” of the 21st century when it comes to healing cervical sprains, disc herniations , frozen shoulders , sciatica and in fact many other soft tissue injuries. The low-level laser is safe and easy to use. It is both doctor and patient-friendly.

Research has demonstrated that a wavelength of 633-635 nanometers is the frequency of a healthy human cell and the most optimal for healing bruises, wounds, sprains and tears of the soft tissue in the human body. The Erchonia Cold laser is an instrument that, with a precise and high quality diode, delivers a line-generated beam at a constant wavelength of 635 nanometers and at a power level of less than one milliwatt.

High-power, “hot” lasers have shorter wavelengths, which have catabolic effects that can deliberately destroy tissues. This is not so with the low-power or “cold” laser, which has a longer wavelength, therefore produces anabolic effects that promote rapid reduction of pain, accelerate healing time and growth, and repair in soft tissue injuries.
Cold lasers have stimulative effects rather than destructive ones. It may be the perfect conjunctive tool for chiropractic treatments and myofascial release. Clinical applications of the cold laser have included acute and chronic pain reduction from many soft tissue injuries, reduced inflammation, enhanced tissue healing, and healthy cell regeneration. Studies have shown results with very rapid pain reduction and accelerated recovery times, far exceeding conventional methods.

Other Therapeutic Laser Biological Effects:

  • Rapid Cell Growth — Laser light accelerates cellular reproduction and growth. Essential for disc injuries.
  • Faster Wound Healing — Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue. This speeds up recovery with neck, back and ankle sprains.
  • Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation — Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action — Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.
  • Increased Vascular Activity — Laser light induces temporary vasodilation, increasing blood flow to damaged areas.
  • Stimulated Nerve Function — Slow recovery of nerve function in damaged tissue can result in “dead” limbs or numb areas. Laser light speeds the process of nerve cell reconnection to bring the numb areas back to life. It is very helpful in whiplash and sciatic nerve injuries.

Chiro FAQs

What is a chiropractic adjustment?

A chiropractic adjustment is a gentle, quick thrust to a particular joint, typically in the spine, intended to restore normal position and movement. Adjustments are important for releasing adhesions in the joint and reducing stress on the nervous system. Because of the fact that the nervous system is that master controller of all muscles and organs in the body, removing stress on the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments will frequently lead to improved health in the entire body.

How many adjustments will I need?

The total number of adjustments you need depends on five main factors:

  1. Your age
  2. Your overall health
  3. The severity of your condition
  4. How long you have had your condition
  5. Your ultimate health goals

If you are young, in good health and have a mild condition that occurred very recently, you will need far fewer adjustments than if you are older, in poor general health and have struggled with a problem for many years. The total number of adjustments you will need also depends on whether you are just interested in reducing the pain you are currently experiencing, or are interested in creating optimal long-term health.

Will adjustments hurt?

Usually not. There are some patients of mine who experience mild soreness after being adjusted, but this is more of the exception. Most people feel better very quickly after being adjusted.

Do patients ever report side effects or problems after using chiropractic?

Patients may or may not experience side effects from chiropractic treatment. Effects may include temporary discomfort in parts of the body that were treated, headache, or tiredness. These effects tend to be minor and disappear within one to two days.

Do I still need to see the chiropractor if my pain is gone?

It is very common for pain to disappear long before the total correction of your condition is attained. Pain is not a very good indicator of health. Often times, people are completely unaware of developing health problems because there is no pain associated with them. Consider heart disease, cancer, diabetes – the three top killers – they don’t cause any symptoms until they are very advanced. The same is true with cavities in your teeth – there is usually no pain until a cavity becomes severe. The point is that just because you are no longer experiencing pain does not mean that your problem no longer exists. It is important to continue treatment until the underlying cause of the pain is corrected.

Routine chiropractic care is one of the simplest ways to maintain the health of your body. Numerous research studies show that people who receive regular chiropractic care suffer fewer illnesses, injuries and degenerative diseases, and they report a better overall quality of life.

Chiropractic care is a safe, effective treatment for a wide range of physical complaints, such as headaches, neck pain, low back pain, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, stomach and gastrointestinal complaints, wrist, elbow and shoulder pain, knee, hip and ankle pain, scoliosis, otitis media, and a host of other problems. While most of these disorders resolve within a few weeks or months, routine chiropractic care help ensure optimal health for life.

Can Chiropractors prescribe medication?

Currently, chiropractors do not prescribe medications, although we may refer someone to another provider for prescription medication if necessary. However, in most cases, patients are better off with physical, rather than chemical, treatments for physical problems.

Chiro Myths

MYTH ONE: Chiropractors are not real doctors

False. In fact, chiropractors actually attend more hours of education than a typical M.D. The course studies are actually very similar at their core. Later on in their studies, medical doctors study pharmacology and chiropractors study adjustment techniques and physiology. Typically, a chiropractor must have a Bachelor’s Degree as well as a Doctorate. Chiropractors must be licensed in the same way as any other doctor. He or she has to pass four Board tests and often a State exam after that. If the chiropractic doctor wants to add a physical therapist to their practice, they must take another Board exam.

MYTH TWO: There is no scientific research to back up chiropractic medicine

False. Unfortunately, lots of people believe this myth. The truth is, however, that chiropractic is supported by empirical data that proves it is beneficial in reducing injuries, surgeries and overall medical costs for a growing number of people. Independent research is very supportive of chiropractic medicine. Paul G. Shekelle, M.D., M.P.H., of the prestigious RAND Corporation, a non-profit research organization that conducts research on important and complicated issues, made the following statement on ABC’s 20/20: “There are considerably more randomized controlled trials which show benefit of this (chiropractic care) than there are for many, many other things which physicians and neurosurgeons do all the time.”

Chiropractic medicine has progressively accumulated more and more scientific research supporting its effectiveness and safety.

MYTH THREE: Chiropractic medicine is too expensive and it is not covered by health insurance

False. Studies that have proven the scientific foundation of chiropractic medicine have also proven the cost-effectiveness of the practice. Particularly in the area of low back pain and injuries, chiropractic medicine has been shown to reduce overall costs of treatment, and prevention of relapse that cause time out of work and a higher number of insurance claims.

Most major insurance plans accept chiropractic medicine as a mainstream health care choice for primary care and treatment. Because chiropractic medicine is now routinely covered by insurance, under most insurance plans a client no longer needs to first obtain a referral from a medical doctor before seeking chiropractic care. Check your own health insurance policy and you may be pleasantly surprised that your chiropractic health care is a permitted expense.

MYTH FOUR: Chiropractic adjustments will cause you to have a stroke.

False. This myth is not only false; it creates unnecessary fear and reluctance to try chiropractic health care. In fact, your chances of having a stroke from chiropractic care are about the same as your chances of being hit by lightning. Your risk of having a stroke from the daily aspirin you may take to prevent a heart attack is about 70,000 times greater than your risk of having a stroke from a chiropractic adjustment. You are 37,000 times more likely to have a stroke for no known reason at all than you are from chiropractic health care.
