“Massage Therapy is particularly good source of Vitamin L”
“Vitamin L” is commonly known as the “universal” or the “love” vitamin, as coined by humanologist, Bethany Argisle. One of the most important nutrients for optimum health is a daily dose of Love. This vital human emotion and experience are necessary for the optimal functioning of people and all of their cells, tissues, and organs. It is found in most of nature — in foods, domestic animals, friends, and family — and is used to heal a wide variety of diseases. There are no toxic effects, but deficiency can cause a wide range of ailments.
Sources: As stated, L is found in a great variety of sources but must be developed and nurtured to be available. Fear, anger, worry, self-concern, and many other human emotions can destroy vitamin L. It is found readily in most moms and dads and is very highly concentrated in grandmothers and grandpas. Sisters and brothers can be a good source of Vitamin L, although often this is covered up in early years, developed in the teens, and more readily available in adulthood. Vitamin L is also found in cats, dogs, and horses, in flowers and birds; and in trees and plants. In food, it is especially found in home-cooked or other meals where vitamin L is used consciously as an ingredient. Massage Therapy is particularly good source of Vitamin L.
Functions: This vitamin acts as the “universal” vitalizing energy. Vitamin L helps to catalyze all human functions and is particularly important to heart function and the circulation of warmth and joy. Digestion is very dependent on appropriate doses of vitamin L, as is the function of the nervous system. That floating on air sensation that you feel after a massage? You can thank Vitamin L as it elevates levels of serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin can help you maintain a balanced mood, and the increase in dopamine can help you be productive and focused. Not to mention the “love” hormone itself: oxytocin. Levels of oxytocin and your body’s natural endorphins go through the roof and may cause feelings of centeredness and bliss leading to a deep sense of safety and resilience.
Uses: Vitamin L is an important nutrient in all human relations, domestic to international. We should definitely put it in the drinking supply! It is a vital ingredient in all health practitioners, doctors, clinics, and hospitals. It can pass through the healer’s energy vibrations to the recipient. It should be used in all heart problems and a wide variety of medical conditions. Vitamin L is also particularly helpful in all kinds of psychological problems. Depression, sadness, anger, fear, worry, pain, concern over world affairs, and many stresses of life can be helped with Vitamin L therapy. Fear, one of the more difficult problems to treat, usually requires megadoses of vitamin L, as does greed.
