Everything in the Universe is either hard, soft, or wiggly. After reading this little book, you and your family will understand that it is best to be wiggly.
You were born wiggly. In fact you were even wigglier before then. If you are still wiggly as you read this, you should learn how to stay wiggly. If you are not presently wiggly, you need to get wiggly.
Wellness is the natural, loving, joyful state of being. Wellness is your birthright. It is freedom from every kind of illness: physical, mental and emotional. Wellness is within your reach, and even easy to attain.
Wiggly is a book by Michael Ducharme, available at
Amazon.com in paperback, hardcover and e-book.
The practice of bathing with heat dates back to the stone age, roughly 2,000 B.C. and became popular worldwide under different names. The Chinese called their heated caves “bath houses”, the Native Americans called their heated tents “sweat lodges” while the Finns built wooden rooms they called “saunas”.
In Finland today, there are more saunas than cars. This may be the best explanation for why Finland is often ranked the happiest country in the world, and one of the healthiest, despite its decidedly unwelcoming climate. (more…)
The Ducharme Method for rapid relief of migraines, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression and a myriad physical, mental and emotional conditions.
The results from this short treatment will amaze you.
This method will alleviate most migraines in 5 minutes.
Before beginning this treatment, ask the patient to rate her pain from 0-10. If it is a full blown migraine, the pain level will always be 10. Spend about one minute on each of the five moves shown in the video. Then, ask the patient to rate her pain again. In most cases, the pain will have reduced by half or may be completely gone. Repeat the five moves in the video until the pain is completely gone.
I developed these techniques and have used them every day for over 30 years to make migraine pain disappear. It works equally well for other headaches, and pain anywhere along the spinal cord except for trauma.
One in every six people suffers from migraines. That’s over a billion people worldwide. You can use these techniques to reduce or eliminate their suffering using only your bare hands.
These techniques are gentle, and pose no risk. Therefore, there are no contraindications. Note that anyone that cannot comfortably sit in the position shown may simply sit with feet on the floor but the half-lotus seated posture is preferable when possible.

Gluten, found in all grains, can cause cancer, asthma, depression, thyroid disease, arthritis, migraines, skin inflammation, and approximately 190 other diseases. Symptoms often disappear quickly if gluten is stopped completely. Source: Dr Peter Osborne
The prolamine (gluten) fraction of proteins in grains
All grains have gluten, not just the specific grains that have traditionally been blamed for celiac disease. Grains are the seeds of grass, and that seed contains a starchy endosperm, which contains gluten. Here is a partial list of grains, along with the specific type of prolamine that it contains. The percentage given is the ratio of the specific prolamine to the total protein content of that grain.

“Gluten-free” Packaged Foods
Many packages that are labeled “gluten free” actually do contain gluten. In most of these cases, the manufacturer of the product has replaced one grain, such as wheat, for another grain, perhaps rice, so the net effect was to substitute one gluten for another while perhaps reducing the percentage of gluten without eliminating it altogether. This may provide a solution for some people, if they were sensitive to wheat gluten (gliadin) but not rice gluten (orzenin). But others are sensitive to all gluten, and therefore will not get relief until they eliminate all grains from their diet.
Gluten Allergy vs. Gluten Intolerance vs. Gluten Sensitivity
With gluten allergy, the immune system responds to the presence of gluten, and produces an unwanted effect, like pain or inflammation. The term gluten intolerance is used to describe individuals that are not able to digest gluten where there is no apparent reaction from the immune system. The term “gluten sensitivity” is ambiguous. It can be used to describe individuals that do not do well with gluten but are unsure of whether they are allergic to gluten or are simply unable to digest it.
Conditions that may be Directly Caused by Gluten Sensitivity (Allergy or Intolerance)
An allergic reaction to gluten, or an ability to digest it, could be the primary direct cause of any of the following diseases. But these diseases may be caused by other factors as well, so it is crucial that you consult your doctor so as to rule in or out gluten sensitivity before you can know the exact cause of the disease. If you have any of the following conditions, it would be wise to suspect that gluten may be a causal factor until your doctor has helped you rule it out: Angina pectoris (chest pain/pressure), anorexia, immunoglobulinopathies, antiphospholipid syndrome, anxiety, apathy, apthous ulcers and canker sores, aortic vasculitis, arthritis (enteropathis, psoriatic, rheumatoid, juvenile rheumatoid), abdominal pain and distention, spontaneous abortion, addison’s disease, ADD/ADHD, alopecia (hair loss), anemis (iron deficiency, folate deficiency, B-12 deficiency, B-6 deficiency, Vitamin C deficiency, Vitamin e deficiency, Copper deficiency*), ataxia, atherosclerosis, autism and other learning disorders, cholangitis (gall bladder), dermatitis herpetiformis, autoimmune hepatitis, polyglandular syndrome, thyroiditis (hypothyroidism), bitot’s spots, blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid), abnormal blurry vision, bone pain, bone fractures, cachexia, bronchiectasis, bronchoalveolitis, adenocarcinoma of the intestine, small cell esophageal cancer, melanoma, asthma, cardiomegaly, cardiomyopathy, cataracts, cerebral perfusion abnormalities, cheilosis, chorea, coagulation abnormalities, chron’s disease, ulcerative colitis, chronic constipation, coronary artery disease, diarrhea, lymphoma, cutaneous vasculitis, cystic fibrosis, delayed puberty, failure to thrive, dementia, depression, dermatomyositis, diabetes mellitus type I, Down syndrome, dysmenorrhea, dysgeusia, duodenal erosions, edema, eczema, dysphasia, epilepsy, spontaneous nose bleeds, erythema nodosum, CFS, growth retardation, mental retardation, secondary food allergy response, blood in the stool, gastric bloating, grave’s disease, bleeding gums, hair loss, heartburn, H pylori infection, hives, NAFL, malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies, infertility, hypogonadism, hypoglycemia, hypospenism, thrombocytopenia, impotence, osteoporosis, insomnia, IBS, keratomalacia, lactose intolerance, loss of smell, non-hodgkin lymphoma, early menopause, migraine headache, multiple sclerosis, muscle wasting, myopathy, obesity, osteomalacia, osteopenia, parathyroid carcinoma, pancreatic insufficiency, polymytosis, PMS, biliary cirrhosis, psoriasis, dermatitis, sjogren’s syndrome, short stature, scleroderma, steatorrhea, spina bifida, SLE, tremors, parkinson’s disease, glossitis, vitiligo, vomiting, vaginitis, UTI (urinary tract infections), PCOS.

As for the required investment, that depends on what level of luxury you demand while studying with us. If you want to stay in a suite with an ocean view during the month of the course, you will pay that cost, it is $ 6000 for two people. (100pp / d.) That level provides a spacious and private space with all the luxuries: king bed plus an additional bed, walk-in closet, mini fridge, private bathroom with hot water, wifi, air conditioning, ceiling fan, and all this on a separate floor for maximum social distancing.
In a private room with a queen bed, the investment is half, $ 3000 for two people, for the entire month. (50pp / d.) These rooms have their private bathroom with hot water, a fan and wifi.
In a shared room with three twin beds, each bed costs $ 900, for the entire month. (30pp / d.)
The cost of renting a space to place your tent is $ 300 for two people (5pp / d.)
The above costs, which only reflect the accommodation, must be paid by ACH (bank transfer) before the start of the course and are not refundable. In any other place you would have to pay for food and services separately, making the total to pay three to five times these costs. We are giving away all the extras because it is our mission to eradicate unnecessary suffering from the world. We want to encourage you to be one of the first people in Panama to acquire this powerful knowledge.
In addition, we are in pre-opening and we are looking for the best people to add to our team. We will only hire people who graduate from our course demonstrating proficiency and the best attitude.
Gandhi is an expert yogi. Here he is seen doing popular yoga asanas known as downward dog (Adho Mukha Shvanasana) and upward dog (Urdhva Mukha Shvanasana). But as a true yogi, Gandhi reminds you that yoga asanas or postures are not merely a description of the bodily position. Although it is scarcely taught in modern yoga schools, each yoga asana must encompass the mental and spiritual postures as well as the physical. Therefore, the true meaning of “Shvanasana” (literally “dog posture”) is to embody the love, friendship and loyalty of a dog. So you see, it has little to do with how high you can stick your butt in the air.
