I was able to slip on my glasses over the mask and work on the computer while the applicator worked its magic.  I could feel a little tingling feeling at first, but it was comfortable to wear.

LIP AND EYE CREAM 1115049   One product that is a must-have in your beauty routine at the moment is It Works! Lip and Eye moisturizing cream gel. Unlike some brands that specifically target just under the eyes, this product by It Works! targets both lips and eyes, to lessen the look of fine lines, wrinkles, bags, and puffiness, by creating a tensor effect to give the delicate skin around your lips and eyes a youthful lift while tightening and firming the skin. It Works! goes to work immediately and continues to improve the appearance of your skin and works progressively over time.  With persistence, It Works! slowly help plump up the hollowness of the eyes and reduce the appearance of smile lines for longer-lasting results. Using just a dab once or twice daily, either first thing when you wake up or before bed, the natural ingredients in this product can go to work and do wonders on your skin. One ingredient that all shoppers should keep an eye out for in an eye cream is caffeine, as it helps constrict blood vessels and reduce puffiness, and I love that It Works! uses Camellia Sinensis for its form of caffeine, as it’s a type of green tea instead of coffee base. Likewise, having moisturizing botanicals like aloe and jojoba help to hydrate and improve the look of your skin on a deeper level, that allow consumers to smile away the laugh lines! While not listed as part of the process, I refrigerate my It Works! Eye & Lip cream as some studies show that cold temperatures can be effective in treating puffiness, and given the size of the cream, it stores easily and serves as a quick reminder to focus on myself and apply my Lip & Eye product while I’m preparing my breakfast or desert. With only a dab needed twice daily, I’m nowhere near completing this product for a full-review, but I can say that I fully enjoy the instant ‘lift’ this It Works! product provides me, and that the results are looking promising. For a blogger who stares at the computer screen a great majority of my day, I love that It Works! Lip & Eye moisturizing cream gel allows me to look awake, alert and youthful throughout even my busiest days.

4 Ways to Recognize the Inner Physician


Each patient carries his own doctor inside him. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the doctor who resides within each patient a chance to go to work.”

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)

I had independently connected with what I call the Inner Physician and was happy to find a couple of other’s who also found it as an active presence in each of us, even though they were past history.  On the other hand I was surprised that I hadn’t found more people who were aware of it who were using it in healing right now.

Albert Schweitzer, famed medical missionary, believed in the inner healing power and encouraged his fellow physicians to help their patients discover the Inner Physician. If the patient is only seen as “ill” he is cut off from his inner capacity to heal and he gives his power away to the doctor. Those who are aware that they have the innate power of the Inner Physician, are empowered to work on their own behalf to find the best solution, whether it is allopathic medicine, alternative means of healing or a combination of things.

If all of our ideas about who we are, who we aren’t and who we are supposed to be were boiled away, the nectar remaining would be a sense of personal being, a pure sense of existence, of presence, of “I am.” This is our Essential Self, and its qualities, like those of the baby and the enlightened master, are pure and unrehearsed. It is the part of us that never dies. It is our uniqueness and authenticity which is not like anyone else. It is always focused on our best life and resists that which is not in our best interest. The problem is this part of us is subtle and doesn’t have a language. The Essential Self is a very simple and pure sense of Presence and the Inner Physician is part of that.

The Inner Physician is active and engaged in every moment directing traffic within your body, making sure your body is working to the best of its ability, within its given environment. It takes care of the body functions, with or without our help or the help of a medical professional. When we work consciously with it rather than unconsciously against it, miracles happen. We will know when it is time to work in conjunction with our doctor to heal our conditions and we will know when we should use alternative methods. Everything given to the body from the outside must first be inspected and then directed on its course by the Inner Physician so any healing that happens is due to this activity and nothing outside of you. Tapping into this energy we discover lost parts of ourselves and access higher wisdom. It gets blocked by the things we do that get in the way, such as worry, fear, control and trying to do things our way and that is why it is sometimes so hard to get well.

When the Inner Physician is engaged, a union occurs between the soul, heart, mind and Creator so that they can work together to maintain homeostasis. In partnership with the Inner Physician the power to return to wellness is strengthened. The more at ease we are at the idea the greater our chances for true health to occur.  As we see the power and potential that resides within the body, many of the fears we have carried regarding our health fade away. We see that we can have an active role in reaching health and wellness and we are empowered to take steps. When you realize that the Inner Physician is working for you at all times, you will know that you are never alone in this pursuit for health and well-being. The key to self-healing is learning to trust this intuitive part of you.

We promote healing and a return to well-being in two ways. First with a positive attitude toward recovery and healing. This is done through a collaborative relationship between you, the physician, relatives and friends, particularly if you are involved in a serious illness. You support team is there to help you stay focused and confident that you can recover and from that space the Inner Physician can participate to full capacity in the healing process and not be hindered by doubt in your speedy recovery.

Secondly healing is promoted through therapeutic measures which appropriately support the healing process, be it allopathic or natural alternatives. For this to happen it is critical that the patient is an active participant in deciding what the process is and committed to undertaking it. Through this cooperative collaborative the Inner Physician is activated and fortified.

In partnership with the Inner Physician you can overcome not only minor ailments but major illness. You can call it intuition, sixth sense, clairvoyance, prophecy or Divine intervention, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is, it is available to each of us, just waiting for us to call upon it.  The following passage came through the connection I been describing about six months after my uterus prolapsed. I wanted to gain understanding about what was happening in my body at the time. The meditation opened a door for me to access the Inner Physician on a deeper level. It is the best way for me to describe the experience of connecting to the Inner Physician and the wisdom of the body.

Memory is stored in the cells, in the bones and even in the hair. The DNA carries the memory of our family bloodline, which is implanted in the cells where it can be hard to locate.  By developing a loving relationship with the part of us that is in dis-ease we begin the journey to health. Many times the body has become sick as a way of crying out to be noticed and cared for in those times when we are too busy focusing on other things that we forget about our body.  Other times our body becomes out of balance and ill because our Essential Self is trying to teach us something that we can’t learn any other way.

So how can we tell when the Inner Physician is trying to get our attention?


Have you ever had a dream that there was something wrong with you that you didn’t know and woke up wondering if it was true?  Have you ever been sick and dreamed of something that might help you?  That is the Inner Physician.

2- Body Sensations

Have you ever gotten a feeling in the pit of your stomach or goose bumps?  That is another way the Inner Physician speaks to you.


Of course pain is another language from the Inner Physician.


Hot, cold, fever and chills are all ways that your Inner Physician tells you something is wrong.

The body gives us clues all of the time about it current state of health.
