How to Use BONGERS™

Bongers! Yes, you heard right, BONGERS™ are the traditional massage tools of Japan. They’re good for breaking down muscle tension,  Soothing sore muscles, getting rid of headaches, and stimulating circulation to revitalize and “turn-on” the body.  Bongers™ have also been used to improve and lift moods, diminishing depression and anxiety while promoting a sense of well-being and positive energy.  Always be sure to bring a pair to a sick friend in the hospital, and when visiting parents, grandparents,  aged friends and relatives, and be sure to leave them as a loving gift of fond remembrance.

Most people store tension in their neck and shoulders, and that’s usually where BONGERS™ are most effective. However, they feel good all over (except the kidneys!).  Use Bongers™ to  give an invigorating, Shiatsu-like massage or a softer, comforting cupping or tapping massage. Remember to let the  flexible shafts do all the work, so that you can BONG indefinitely without tiring.

Here’s an instructional video on how to use them:

The Japanese call them Magono Te (“grandchild’s hands”). Imagine tiny little hands not strong enough to knead strong muscles, but able to “chop and cup” the large muscles of their elders.

In Japan, children traditionally have BONGED their elders when they’ve come home after a hard day in the rice fields. Bongers™ massage improves communication skills required for personal growth!

BONGERS™ can also act as a wonderful proprioception tool, while strengthening your arms and shoulders. You can hold the BONGERS™ straight up vertically and wobble the ball left to right while holding your arm rigid to exercise your shoulders. You can also wobble the ball toward you and away from you to exercise your triceps and arms. If you stare at the ball while wobbling the ball it helps train your brain to remember where your hand is in space; thus improving proprioception. This helps with hand-eye coordination and is extremely useful during recovery from stroke, Muscular Dystrophy, Dementia, or Parkinson’s.

Bongers™ are a fun, effortless, and easy way to massage your self or anyone, anytime  and anywhere without having to remove clothes.

Movie Review: BURZYNSKI the movie (DVD)

Burzynski is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food & Drug Administration in American history.

His victorious battles with the United States government were centered around Dr. Burzynski‘s belief in and commitment to his gene-targeted cancer medicines he discovered in the 1970’s called Antineoplastons, which have currently completed Phase II FDA-supervised clinical trials in 2009 and could begin the final phase of testing in 2010—barring the ability to raise the required $150 million to fund them.

When Antineoplastons are approved, it will mark the first time in history a single scientist, not a pharmaceutical company, will hold the exclusive patent and distribution rights on a paradigm-shifting medical breakthrough. Antineoplastons hold the first cur*es in history – dozens of them.

Burzynski takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons.

Dr. Burzynski resides and practices medicine in Houston, Texas. He was able to initially produce and administer his discovery without FDA-approval from 1977-1995 because the state of Texas at this time did not require that Texas physicians be required to adhere to Federal law in this situation. This law has since been changed.

As with anything that changes current-day paradigms, Burzynski‘s ability to successfully treat incurable cancer with such consistency has baffled the industry. However this fact has prompted numerous investigations by the Texas Medical Board, who relentlessly took Dr. Burzynski as high as the state supreme court in their failed attempt to halt his practices.

Likewise, the Food and Drug Administration engaged in four Federal Grand Juries spanning over a decade attempting to indict Dr. Burzynski, all of which ended in no finding of fault on his behalf. Finally, Dr. Burzynski was indicted in their 5th Grand Jury in 1995, resulting in two federal trials and two sets of jurors finding him not guilty of any wrongdoing. If convicted, Dr. Burzynski would have faced a maximum of 290 years in a federal prison and $18.5 million in fines.

However, what was revealed a few years after Dr. Burzynski won his freedom, helps to paint a more coherent picture regarding the true motivation of the United States government’s relentless persecution of Stanislaw Burzynski, M.D., Ph.D.

Antineoplastons are responsible for curing some of the most incurable forms of terminal cancer. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film who chose his treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation – with full disclosure of medical records to support their diagnosis and recovery.

One form of cancer – diffuse, intrinsic, childhood brainstem glioma has never before been cured in any experimental clinical trial in the history of medicine.
