Made ya look! I'm talkin' fingernail moons, people!
A talented healer I know looked at my fingernails several months ago before I started this massive parasite/halogen/metal detox. I've had no moons on my last two fingernails for 5 years. 5 years ago is when my health plummeted. It's also when my nails started getting long, delicate ridges down them (apparently a sign of calcium/magnesium imbalance).
Looking at my last 2 fingers of each hand, she told me that disappearing moons are a tell-tail sign that your kidneys are full. I did a kidney tea for 10 days, got a lot of sludgy stuff out - but my moons didn't start to come back.
I've been on Iodine therapy for about 5 weeks now. I just noticed my moons are coming back! This is so wonderful. Fluoride and Bromide are so hard on your kidneys. I'd assume they also inhibit calcium absorption. We know that Chronic Fatigue is a direct indicator of kidney sluggishness...I don't smoke or drink - so I've wondered why my kidneys were having such a hard time. Huh. 5 weeks of detoxing everything that Iodine does (seems like the list grows everyday, really) - and my moons are coming back! I have more energy than I have in years - and for the first time in 5 years...I'm not fearful about the idea of pregnancy.
It's like the fog has lifted and I don't fear that I might never really get better. This is such an amazing experience!! Woohoo!
It's partially a blood pH effect. Halogen imbalance results in reduced secosteroid "Vitamin D" availability to the kidney which in turn diminishes the ability of kidney to release bicarbonate to buffer blood, the result being a slightly lower blood pH, usually accompanied by fatigue. If you did a poll of the people who are acidic, you'd see their fingernails have no moons.
Vulcanel... are you a chemist? A nutritionist? You and Newport have the detail lock-down on conversion, chemicals - the whole deal. As an abstract thinker - you blow my brain up. Please take this the right way (it's a compliment) - every time I read your posts my thought process goes something like this "oh my God...will I ever know that much? I'm so behind the game. What is this guy's deal?!?" Did you read the encyclopedia during kindergarten recess? Yowza.
I hated school and had a hard time remaining awake in classes. I sensed that the subjet matter was often irrelevant, like "why do I need to know this ?". But in the end, at least I learned why so many "educated" people think and believe the way they do, and the info they base their conclusions on, some premises of which are false. I just like to read, what I want to read. As Mr. Clements quipped, I never let my schooling interfere with my education.
I think that manicures, polish, etc, can distort the window here.
Also, there seem to be be many interpretations to various nail signals.
For instance, fewer than 8 lunulae has "many" rule outs. and then about injury; "If you know you have traumatized a nail and it is black, blue or various shades of bruise, this is not really anything to be concerned about"; another illustration is that different issues can have the same root cause. This could be used to understand that if you have 2 or more "signs" pointing to one or more issues, the combination of the signs can be used to narrow the problem focus.
I believe the right hand\left hand illustration here... my left ring finger lunulae was the last to appear early this year. When I started all this over three years ago, I had lunulae on my thumbs and barely perceptible on my right index finger. Lunulae always appeared on my right hand first... I am right handed. In addition, as I began to use my left hand more and more efficiently for tasks I normally only used my right hand for, the lunulae became more pronounced on the left hand.
Nail health and "signs" can be used as a useful diagnostic.
However, if people receive or give themselves manicures, along with the polishes, nail removers, moisturizers, and such, this method of determining health is most likely out the window, at best, distorted, and one must use skin, hair, digestive, elimination, and oral health signals\signs.
As illustrated in the last sentence above, I think that we have been given many "backup" systems to use as signs\signals to determine our overall health AND well being.
did you read what grz posted? check out what she says about lunulae on thumbs.
"If the thumb lunula is too large the heart and circulation is working overtime and eventually this overworks the heart. The person may be exhibiting high blood pressure. Other signs that the heart is working overtime would be the presence of "heart line" on the ear lobe (a line just above the lobe itself) and a pointed tongue. If the tongue is red at the tip, there is a more serious involvement of the heart."
I don't have any lines on my ears *although I'm not sure what to look for* but the tip of my tongue is red..then again my whole tongue is red. *looks confused*
I know for a fact I don't have high blood pressure because Ive tested it many times. Although it wouldn't surprise me if I have some heart damage since years ago I smoked enough crack cocaine to kill an elephant. I was surprised back then that I didn't die. There were times my heart was beating out of my chest so hard it would make my tee shirt bounce (literally).
