Metal Element

Metal  金

 

 

 

     

METAL represents openness - allowing things to come in and go out with ease. BALANCED METAL forms attachments and lets them go appropriately while learning how to be comfortable with who we are. It is the center of Divine inspiration for ideas, provides insight into life experience, and is the vehicle through which we honor the sacred. It is associated with respiration and removal of that which doesn’t serve us.

“Dear Jakki,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank  you for your recommendations with my son, Jesse.  Jesse is a very active  12 year old boy, who was diagnosed in 3rd grade with ADHD.   He was placed on Concerta at that time to help him to concentrate and  focus in school and extra-curricular activities.  Over the next 2 ½  years, Jesse’s grades improved greatly on the medicine that he was on.   However, he lost weight, was lethargic and had a hard time falling  asleep at bedtime.  His growth was also slowed due to the side effects  of the medicine.  We tried a different medicine, Straterra, and while  some of the side effects were reduced, he was still very tired and  struggled to keep on weight.  Last May, Jesse and I together decided to  stop the medicine to see if he could somehow regulate his ADHD symptoms  on our own. 

During a visit to Body Logic for a massage  the day after we went off the medication, you and I discussed Jesse’s  struggles with his ADHD and our decision.  You suggested we try two  aromatherapy blends you had created.  The blends were called Focus and  Calm.  Jesse and I were both very excited to try to herbal methods, as  we were both determined not to go back on the medicine, but were also  apprehensive that school and activities would be adversely affected  during the transition.  You instructed Jesse to dab the oils on his  wrists and the bottoms of his feet 3-4 times each day.  You also gave  him a shower gel of the Focus blend to use daily.

Jesse and I quickly noticed the benefits  from the blends you had given us.  He was calmer, more social, and much  less lethargic.  Even his sister noticed the difference in him.  And  being off the medicine immediately increased his appetite.

I am so happy to report that today Jesse is  a healthy, very active boy. His weight is stable, his growth is back on  track and he looks so much healthier.  I firmly believe that without  your suggestions and guidance, Jesse would not have made such a smooth  transition to being non-medicated.

Thank you so much for sharing your  knowledge and your blends with us.  I am so thankful to have my son back.

Sincerely, 

Dawn, Bel Air, MD”
