331 Holistic Dermatology: How to Heal Your Skin with Naturopathic Medicine, Reverse Adult Acne, Acne Scars, Liver Spots, Age Spots, Wrinkles, Eczema, Psoriasis, Ichthyosis, Dr. Stacey Shillington

Holistic Dermatology https://www.learntruehealth.com/holistic-dermatology Many of you may have heard of Holistic Dermatology, and some of you may have not. Holistic Dermatology indeed exists. And it’s all about healing your skin with Naturopathic Medicine. To explain how Holistic Dermatology works, join me and my guest, Dr. Stacey Shillington in this episode. Acne Struggles Dr. Stacey Shillington grew up in Alberta in the 80s and dealt with acne. At the time, she had no idea what Naturopathic Medicine or Holistic Dermatology was. As a teenager, she tried topical creams, and her doctor even put her on the birth control pill to control her acne. For a few years, everything was fine. But in her late 20s, Dr. Stacey Shillington wanted to go off birth control. She got into yoga to get into her body and get interested in health. Eventually, Dr. Stacey Shillington decided to get off the birth control pill. As a result, her skin completely flared up. She recalls being in Asia at the time traveling the world. When this happened, it changed Dr. Stacey Shillington’s personality. She was outgoing before the flare up and turned to hide away from the world. Dr. Stacey Shillington was shocked at how much her acne changed her personality. Then when she went back to Toronto, Dr. Stacey Shillington couldn’t face going back to her old job nor meet her friends. “Doctors suggested many things. Looking back, I’m surprised I didn’t go for those options because I was so desperate. But something inside me said that wasn’t the solution,” recalls Dr. Stacey Shillington.  She adds, “I spent a ton of money trying everything out there. So, I spent all my time researching skin care. Not much made my skin better. I was married when I went off the birth control pill, and my skin flared up. Then I ended up getting divorced.”   Seeking Natural Remedies Somebody then suggested to Dr. Stacey Shillington to see a Naturopathic Doctor. The Naturopathic Doctor wasn’t able to completely clear her skin, but the doctor really changed Dr. Stacey Shillington’s philosophy on health care and eventually fast-tracked her journey to learn about Holistic Dermatology. “She said my skin is like this because there is an imbalance in my body. And the way to heal your skin is to balance your body and find the root cause of your acne,” shares Dr. Stacey Shillington. “So, I went back to school to become a Naturopathic Doctor, so I could learn how to do this.” Realizations Dr. Stacey Shillington realized acne and skin care problems are debilitating to people. They affect our quality of life. And the solutions out there are not solving the problem. There’s a huge void. So that is what inspired Dr. Stacey Shillington to go back to school and learn all about Holistic Dermatology. “My whole career as a Naturopath has been focused on treating the skin, learning how to heal the skin, really helping people get their lives back and living their lives fully,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said. More To Learn A year after graduation, Dr. Stacey Shillington started working in a dermatology clinic in Toronto. She worked there for about 11 years. Time and work allowed her to become proficient in her career. “When I was a Naturopathic Doctor studying, they always said the gut and the skin are intimately related. And it’s true. Your skin is often a reflection of what’s going on in your gut,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington. Dr. Stacey Shillington also said that there are tons of research in the last 6 to 10 years about the microbiome. There are a hundred trillion microbes that live in our gut and on our skin. And when there’s an imbalance in the microbiome in the gut, eventually that imbalance is going to present itself on the skin. Right Diet According to Dr. Stacey Shillington, changing your diet and eating foods that are less inflammatory is essential. This is to heal your skin and to reduce inflammation in the gut. Healing gut is critical to improving your skin. “You can be eating the very best diet, but if your gut is in trouble if you have an overgrowth of certain pathogens, that has to be addressed as well in addition to changing the diet. This is to heal the skin fully,” Dr. Stacey Shillington advises.  She adds, “I get my patients into an anti-inflammatory diet. There are certain foods out there that cause inflammation more than other foods. Dairy is a very inflammatory food especially for people who have acne.” Recommended Foods Sugar is a drug in itself. And Dr. Stacey Shillington says it impairs insulin sensitivity. It leads to high androgens and again points to acne. High sugar fruits, maple syrup, and honey also have the same effect. “It’s not that you can never eat these foods again. But you cannot eat these foods while you are healing the gut and reducing inflammation in the body,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington. Dr. Stacey Shillington on the contrary, reveals that berries are amazing for acne patients. It is because berries reduce inflammation and have a low glycemic index. They’re not likely going to spike insulin levels.  “I also love cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, arugula, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts detoxify the liver. Food is a fantastic medicine, and it can help the body function so much more efficiently. It sets the stage for diving in to start healing the skin,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said.   Other Foods To Avoid Dr. Stacey Shillington shares that doctors at the turn of the century used to call acne diabetes of the skin. So, treating acne as a metabolic condition is often one of the keys to solving it. “I love berberine. It is amazing for acne. Not only does it help regulate the blood sugar, but it also helps support the liver, and it is also anti-microbial. So, it helps solve any dysbiosis in the gut,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said. According to Dr. Stacey Shillington, chocolate is so inflammatory for people with skin problems because it contains theobromine. She says there was a May 2014 study where it showed that theobromine could increase acne. Thus, dairy, sugar, and chocolate are the foods that should be looked at if you have inflammatory skin disorders. The other food as well that many people find surprising is oatmeal. Dr. Stacey Shillington says oatmeal contains an element that decreases sex hormones binding globulin in the blood. “And when you have decreased levels of it, you have more testosterone in the blood. Testosterone is an androgen and contributes to the production of acne,” explains Dr. Stacey Shillington. To get started, Dr. Stacey Shillington recommends that for three days, eat vegetables, low glycemic index fruits, lean proteins and see how you feel. If you feel better than you did when eating grains, that is a sign that you need to spend some time not eating grains while you are healing and balancing your body. “And I’m not saying forever because some starchy carbs are essential. Gluten is also so inflammatory. I can’t heal skin when people are eating gluten,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington. Recommended Oils Dr. Stacey Shillington said when there are too many omega-6 fatty acids in the body, it’s highly inflammatory. It is found in soybean oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, corn oil, a lot of other veggie oils. Instead, focus on oils like olive oil which has omega-9 fatty acids, avocado oil, and coconut oil which is saturated fat. Also eat foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, mackerel, sardines, organic eggs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and flax seeds. Dr. Stacey Shillington also advises to be aware of the oils we are using so we can reduce inflammation. “Olive oil should be used raw. When it’s heated up at a certain temp, it starts to oxidize. That will create inflammation. So, cook with avocado or coconut oil. Fish oils can be beneficial, and it can make a difference on the skin,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said.  She adds, “But for acne, I would never recommend fish oils. It’s one of the supplements that will contribute to acne. It’s much better to address other skin conditions like psoriasis.” Dr. Stacey Shillington also mentions that every single cell of our body is composed of fatty acids. So, to have a healthy body, we have to make sure those cell membranes are indeed nourished. “There’s a moisture barrier on the skin, and it looks like a brick wall. If the fatty acids are deficient, that brick wall is going to start to break down,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington. “And things that are not supposed to get into the body are going to get into the body and vice versa. So, it’s important to keep that moisture barrier intact to half healthy skin.” Genes We all manifest imbalances differently. Dr. Stacey Shillington says it’s based on our genes. But 90% of our health is determined by our lifestyle. Diet, sleep, and stress can also improve or worsen our skin condition. “When you’re stressed and prone to acne, three different biochemical pathways that are activated in the body that contribute to acne,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington.  She adds, “Exercise is also an important thing. Mindset is also huge. Positive mindset creates resilience against stress.” Contributing Factors How much sunlight, regular eating, sleeping, and wake times are also factors that contribute to healthy skin. Dr. Stacey Shillington also says relationships and resentments play a significant role as well. Our emotions also play a significant role in good skin health. Meditation is essential, and Dr. Stacey Shillington says skin health is better when people practice self-love. You need to be relaxed for your body to heal.  “Make sure your liver is supported, do detoxes and work on your gut. Try to work on your gut before you get off birth control pills. You want to be balanced as possible,” advises Dr. Stacey Shillington.  She adds, “When you’re on birth control, you’re not making any natural estrogen or progesterone. It’s shutting down your natural hormone production. And it’s also suppressing androgens which are the hormones that are going to cause acne.”  Effective Cleanse Dr. Stacey Shillington recommends Manuka honey to cleanse. She also said that if you don’t have a microbiome that disrupted, you can use oil to cleanse, which is very beautiful and nourishing. “If you do have a microbiome imbalance, which will result in fungal acne, use something like micellar water. Cleansing should be incredibly gentle. For moisture, use aloe vera gel or jojoba,” Dr. Stacey Shillington advises.  She adds, “In the palm of your hand, put about a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and a teaspoon of the oil of your choice. Mix it vigorously with a finger for 30 seconds until it turns into a lotion. Apply to face and add essential oils if you like.” Skin Care Classes Dr. Stacey Shillington has some amazing classes that will teach you how to take care of your skin. Topping off the list is her 7-week Clear Skin Program which you can also sign up via my link www.learntruehealth.com/clearskin.  There’s a new module each week, and the lessons are simple yet effective. Another excellent program is Dr. Stacey Shillington’s 8-Week Anti-Aging Skin Care Program. Like the 7-week program, it’s very holistic and effective as well so make sure to check it out on her website. “I want to change the way the skin is approached. My experience and the treatments available right now are just not helping people and often making skin situations even worse. My mission is to help change that. Get some real healing going on with our skin,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington.  Bio Dr. Stacey Shillington has been practicing Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto for over twelve years with some of the city’s top dermatologists. Inspired by her skin struggles, her specialty has always been healing the skin from the inside out. In addition to her private practice in Toronto, she owns Naturopathic Beauty and runs successful online acne and anti-programs.  Dr. Stacey Shillington is also a mother to 2 boys and a dedicated yogi and meditator.

330 PART TWO: Holistic Habits, Removal of Heavy Metals, Lactic Acid, ADHD, Thyroid and Kidney Health, Ionic Foot Detox, Platinum Energy Systems, Kellyann Andrews

And to prove it, my guest Kellyanne Andrews has so many stories to share about how she helped people heal through Holistic habits. Educating People Before getting into Holistic habits, you first have to be aware that the body is in chelation. That’s the thing Kellyann Andrews has always taught people about. The body is the one doing the filtering, it knows where the issue is, and it knows where the toxicity is. “So, what we are doing is just opening up drainage routes like clogged liver, clogged heart or clogged lungs. The core of the body is made up of cells,” said Kellyann Andrews. “And those cells get ingested with internal toxicity which happens to be man-made chemicals like agricultural chemicals, and industrial chemicals including heavy metal.” She says people generally feel overwhelmed because of the multiple exposures of these chemicals getting into their bodies simultaneously. Those chemicals start having interaction and create a worse compound. In return, the body tries to keep things under control. How Platinum Energy Systems Work With the Platinum Energy Systems technology, there are coils in the water. It creates pressure in the water. And when we put our feet in the warm salt water, it opens up the sweat glands. It allows the body to sweat out into the basin. Then in that content of the sweated particles, the coils attract the harmful particles. “The technology helps to break up the particles. But what happens around your cells is that you have a liquid layer of fat and it completely clogs up. The health of the body is depending on two things — getting the nutrition in and toxicity out,” said Kellyann Andrews.  She adds, “But when the cell wall is completely sealed off, the first thing you have to do is clean the aquarium. The internal environment inside the body is either assisting wellness or assisting illness.” Achieving Wellness Kellyann Andrews relates that when people come to see her, they are in the ownership of illness. That’s why they have to focus on regeneration. Kellyann Andrews says we need to change over to the visuals of wellness, vitality, and rejuvenation of endless energy and stamina. “Put that visual, whatever that is representing in your mind and move into ownership. Don’t put your attention on your symptoms, your illness or what’s missing in your life,” Kellyann Andrews said. “Focus on what do you want to experience. And own it in the now. It has to be in the present tense.”  Unconscious and Conscious Life Kellyann Andrews educates clients, telling them that they need to address the issue at the beginning of the upset. Whether it be a physical symptom, emotional feeling or mental thought. We have to learn to make distinctions between our conscious life and unconscious life. “The unconscious life is when we are on autopilot. You catch yourself in the midst of having a reaction or an upset or whatever. And you stay conscious in that moment, and we choose what you want the result to be,” said Kellyann Andrews.  She adds, “The more you stay conscious, the more you realize what is going on, on a mental level. You have to catch yourself in moments of life and re-train yourself to stay conscious. All of our challenging moments are impacting the emotional, mental and physical aspects.” Kellyann Andrews also shares that if you’re moving to reactive mode, you are not helping your body at that moment to heal and repair. Having Holistic habits is all about having the right lifestyle choices and healing habits.  Finding Hope The Platinum Energy Systems technology works not only at the moment during a session. It continues to assist your body after the session. Kellyann Andrews says a lot of people come to see her because it’s either their liver is not working at all, or it is faltering. After I did my past episodes with Kellyann Andrews, many of my listeners have sought her help. The health issues are endless, yet the success stories using Platinum Energy Systems are inspiring. Kellyann Andrews recalled having a dialysis patient. Her practitioner worked with the patient and did 2 to 3 sessions a week with her. Her whole body was clogged with internal pollution. So, the primary goal was to clean the cells, so the functionality will come back. After several sessions, that woman’s health dramatically improved. Kidney function can also improve significantly. One patient was no longer a kidney dialysis candidate after using Platinum Energy Systems. It baffled that patient’s doctor because there has never been a reversal of kidney failure before. “Heavy metals will affect the mitochondria. In the mucky aquarium, you have high acidity and low oxygen. It’s the number one cause of the proliferation of virus, bacteria, fungus, and mold. The good guys thrive in high oxygen,” Kellyann Andrews explains. Children also get how significant the Platinum Energy Systems is to their body, and Kellyann Andrews says they just completely chill out. The body is very understanding of the significance of the sessions. Most patients claim that after doing several sessions, their energy is up, breathing is more natural, they feel happier, lighter and brighter. Ultimately, they find joy in living again. Nickel Kellyann Andrews says the body knows what it needs. Our body is so brilliant at helping us and also communicating to us what it wants. What we need to learn is to hear what is a yes and what’s a no. “The wisdom of the body knows if it’s toxic and going into the danger response. Women have thyroid nodules but often will also have chronic skin issues as well as other autoimmune issues. One source of toxicity is nickel,” said Kellyann Andrews. Nickel is found not only in dental amalgam but also in braces in the mouth and jewelry. Other sources include electronic devices, household appliances, batteries, lotion, vitamins, tobacco, tap water, transit railing, and many others. It’s being absorbed through the skin, that’s why people have all these flare-ups on their skin.  More Holistic Habits When clients know something is driving them crazy on a food level, Kellyann Andrews gets them to chart all the foods they eat and how they feel after. By doing this, you will find patterns starting to occur. “The mood part is the mirror. One of the things that work well is how you start your day. How you start the day will set the tone and mood the entire day,” shares Kellyann Andrews.  She adds, “When I get up first thing in the morning, I will drink glasses of water to flush the digestive tract. Then I do oil pulling. Using raw cold-pressed sesame oil is the best. It pulls stuff out of the brain as well as clean out the sinuses. Even pulls stuff from the lungs.”  Music Music is a significant aspect of Holistic habits. It is the one part that gets into us through vibration.  So ideally, put on your favorite music and completely absorb the vibration. Allow that beautiful energy to help you start your day. “But behind the music, also do gratitude. Let go of the mindset of illness and move to the mindset of wellness. And let go of the dinosaur way of thinking and dinosaur way of being into the light and love that is so healing on this planet,” said Kellyann Andrews.  She also advises everyone to do something nice for yourself to raise your vibration. The only point of choice in life is right now. Not the past nor the future. We must not focus on anger because anger only hurts yourself. Your choice is this moment and what you choose to focus on and what you choose to own. “Think about this for one second. Where are you investing your time, energy and money? You only have one body in this lifetime. And that’s your investment should be focused,” Kellyann Andrews said.  Bio Kellyann Andrews’ background is biochemistry, nursing, and holistic, alternative and energy medicine for 40 years. She is always digging deeper into the core of “well-being” – on all levels.  Kellyann Andrews is a health coach by nature and trade. She does not have any specific certifications. She was at university and nursing school until a sudden family death which left her grief-stricken and devastated. Due to this experience, Kellyann Andrews stepped away from traditional medicine.  Kellyann Andrews continued to educate herself by researching all areas of health recovery. This is now her life’s work – sharing discoveries and her recovery with others on the same path.  When both parents died prematurely, and Kellyann Andrews suffered poor health, she was inspired to find ways of creating wellness at the cellular level. She is the President of Platinum Energy Systems, her husband and her own business – specializing in detoxification for health recovery and prevention. They have clients (home-users), medical clinics, and practitioners all over North America. Get Connected With Kellyann Andrews!

329 Stories of Success Through Detox, Holistic Habits, Removal of Heavy Metals, ADHD, Thyroid and Kidney Health, Platinum Energy Systems, Kellyann Andrews

www.PlatinumEnergycentre.ca (for clients and practitioners) (our resource library) (Kellyann will give you access to this site and the ebooks) Use coupon code LTH for 15% off!   Free Naturopathic Doctor Course - 8 Video Series: FreeDoctorCourse.com   Free Health Coach Discovery Session with Ashley James: http://learntruehealth.com/chat LearnTrueHealth.com/chat   Stories of Success Through Detox https://www.learntruehealth.com/stories-of-success-through-detox Holistic habits have changed the lives of many. One of the things we’re always focusing on in the program is giving people advice on Holistic habits. But what better way than to hear actual stories of success on how Holistic habits effectively released toxins from our body and improved our health. I’ve been a fan of the Platinum Energy Systems ever since I had Kellyann Andrews on the show. I had her as my guest on episodes 292 and 293. She’s, here again, to expound more on the benefits of Platinum Energy Systems and to embrace a lifestyle of Holistic habits. Overview Kellyann Andrews describes the whole journey like going into an important business meeting. You see yourself going ahead of the meeting and seeing everything goes harmoniously. Then towards the end of the business meeting when you’re alone, you may find yourself dancing to celebrate because everything went fabulously. This, she says, is using the power of visualization, magnetization, prayer, and meditation. Reflection As we go into this new year, Kellyann Andrews says what we reflect on is the progress that we have made. Being able to reflect is a significant Holistic habit because it’s so easy as human beings to focus on what needs correction. “In looking in the mirror, we’re always looking for what’s wrong in the mirror. Let’s start a new habit,” advises Kellyann Andrews. “When you look in the mirror, you look at what’s right in the mirror. There’s a beautiful being looking back at you, a being that wants to advance and evolve and become a better self.”  She adds, “And so at the beginning of this year, let’s reflect on all of what’s called the bright spots in your past. Reflect on it in terms of your health and all the things that helped you to move forward and moving to a new body.” Kellyann Andrews further explains that is because our body can affect the blood cells to the tube of the digestion, esophagus and down to the gut. Those cells rejuvenate in a week. Other cells in the body take a little bit longer. Ultimately, our cells are designed to renew themselves.  Acute Illness vs. Chronic Illness If the body is designing and creating new cells, then why is sickness continuing? Interesting point, right? Well, Kellyann Andrews says spring is the classic time of the year to do a cleanse or detox as part of your Holistic habits. It’s to get the old out and get the refuge out of the body. “Difference between acute illness and chronic illness is toxicity. When old cells duplicate, they pass on the toxicity to the new cells. And that’s why spring is an important time of the year to do detoxification,” said Kellyann Andrews. Success Stories Kellyann Andrews recently had a male client who had extreme edema on his legs. His legs are the same width as his thigh and were so heavy that his wife had to help him move step by step. The man’s wife eventually got a Platinum Energy Systems for her husband to use. And because they knew circulation was his number one issue, the challenge was to get the lymphatic system moving inside the body. After which everything can flow and get to where it needs to go. But with that male client, it was all jammed up. “We opened up his sweat glands and circulatory system to release into the basin. And sure enough, this molten lava came out immediately. Out came the heavy metals. By the end of the session, he felt a difference in his legs. He was then able to sleep well and get out of his bed by himself,” Kellyann Andrews relates. In another instance, Kellyann Andrews also had a client who was struggling with health issues. But after six months of using Platinum Energy Systems, she had no more fatty liver and even lost sixty pounds. Treatment Period People usually ask Kellyann Andrews how many sessions it would take before they get better. She says it depends on your age, lifestyle, diet, level of toxicity. “Each person will have a genetic weakness where the illness will show up first in the body. But that genetic weakness is indicating that if the bottom right corner of the aquarium is mucky, then the whole aquarium is mucky,” said Kellyann Andrews. Tipping Point Kellyann Andrews says people are reaching into their 40s and having all these symptoms getting out of bed only means that they’ve reached the tipping point. Their bodies can no longer handle the toxic load, and it’s manifesting wherever the weakest link in the body is. “Resilience is the key to health, and that will tell you at what state of well-being you are,” explains Kellyann Andrews. Addressing Mercury Kellyann Andrews recalls a female client whose score on mercury was 72. And 72 is an astronomical level. She was entirely not able to do anything. And when patients are in that state, they become very fearful and anxious. They’re afraid to do anything, take anything, and eat anything. “The key thing is to give them hope. We started with 10-minute sessions with the Platinum Energy System at the start and got her confidence level up. Then we gradually increased it to 15 minutes then to 20 minutes,” recalls Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “Eventually they progressed her to be able to do 30 minutes over time. Things started to liberate out of her body that was completely undermining every aspect of her health. Her mercury score is now at 10.”  Trust Your Body Kellyann Andrews says the number one thing you should trust always is your own body. She recalled a time when she went into someone’s house one day and stayed for not more than 20 minutes. Kellyann Andrews felt her throat started to tighten, and her lungs started to cough. Mucus started coming out of her lungs and nose. Even her eyes were affected. By the time she got out of the house, Kellyann Andrews was in respiratory distress. Furthermore, she developed a severe headache. Going home, she immediately went into the session using her Platinum Energy Systems, and her symptoms stopped. “Because what the body was needing was to get rid of that content. The body gives amazing clues. Our body has wisdom designed into its genetics on how and what it needs at any given moment and how to correct it,” said Kellyann Andrews. She also said that women couldn’t physically correct the situation, so our body gives fight and flight cues. Our body will do what it can, but Kellyann Andrews says the Platinum Energy System helps people shift because it opens up the drainage routes. “Heavy metals also create chaos frequencies. They also increase your EMF sensitivity. But also develop hyperreactivity to products. Your body is telling you it needs help to get rid of toxins,” said Kellyann Andrews. Understanding Our Body There’s a whole aspect to health being from the emotional component, mental component and physical. Kellyann Andrews says we all start in life with dramas and traumas. And it goes on repeatedly in the body. Hence, the body is continuously offended by bad or negative emotions. The result is our body starting to feel unsafe. That’s when it also starts having alert signals. So, it’s really about learning how to listen to our body. Choosing A Foot Spa There are so many cheap foot spas in the market. And although it seems tempting to buy because it’s cheap, it is best to choose a quality product.  According to Kellyann Andrews, many imitation knock-off foot spas are purporting to look like the Platinum Energy Systems design, but there’s no intelligence behind them. They will color up the water in the basin and make you believe the toxins are coming out but more often than not, there’s no truth to that. “With our system, we have a hospital medical power source. It’s the same power source as a life support equipment. That is why it is that stable. There is intelligent technology. To monitor the water and see the level of electricity is. There is an ideal treatment level,” said Kellyann Andrews. This ends part one of our interview. But there’s more so make sure to check out Part 2 of this amazing episode.  Bio Kellyann Andrews’ background is biochemistry, nursing, and holistic, alternative and energy medicine for 40 years.

328 From Chronically Sick to Holistically Thriving, Amenorrhea, Migraines, Acne, SIBO, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, Mineral Deficiency, Adrenal Fatigue, Low FODMAP Diet, Stress, Integrative

Cassie Johnson's Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/holisticallythriving   Holistically Thriving http://learntruehealth.com/holistically-thriving I’m sure most of us aim to be holistically thriving. After all, who wouldn’t want to live a life independent from drugs? My guest today, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Cassie Johnson is a listener who told me the Learn True Health podcast significantly helped her fast track her road to a life that is holistically thriving. Health Struggles Cassie Johnson’s life today was a stark contrast from her past. It was far from being holistically thriving. She has dealt with amenorrhea, migraines, acne, SIBO, mineral deficiency, adrenal fatigue, an unhealthy diet, and stress. Recalling her younger years, Cassie Johnson got all of her hormones tested. It’s because she had a lot of health struggles since she was 13 years old. She was getting terrible migraines, yet no one thought it could be a hormone issue. Growing Up So, Cassie Johnson went through high school and first had her period at 16 years old. At 17 years old, she started breaking out all over her chin and cheeks. Her mom took Cassie Johnson to her ob-gyn, but the doctor did not test her for hormone levels. Instead, they just tested her growth hormone. They didn’t conduct an ultrasound to see if Cassie Johnson had any cyst on her ovaries. Cassie Johnson was eventually put on the pill and antibiotics for her acne. She was on that medication off and on for five years of her life. Learning True Health At age 22, Cassie Johnson was struggling with acne and still haven’t gotten another period. Her digestion was terrible, and so she decided to get hormones tested. The results came back, and it turned out that her estrogen and progesterone levels came back post-menopausal. It was a huge wake-up call. Ultimately, that set Cassie Johnson on a journey to find a way to be holistically thriving. “My doctor told me to go back on the pill. I refused because I knew that it was synthetic hormones and not helping me whatsoever and I wanted to figure out the root cause of this issue,” recalls Cassie Johnson. “So that is how I found your podcast. Realized I shouldn’t go back to medication because food is a powerful medicine.” The Road to Holistically Thriving Cassie Johnson ended up taking Nicole Jardim’s Fix Your Period course, which was about natural ways to balance hormones. Incidentally, Nicole Jardim was a past guest on my show. “She covered a lot of hormone imbalances that help me to eventually get to the root of my hormone imbalance which was the fact that my ovaries just weren’t working,” Cassie Johnson said.  She added, “My testosterone was pretty low as well. So, I figured out it was my ovaries. And since then I’ve taken action to help boost my hormones naturally through food, natural remedies, acupuncture, and variety of other techniques.”  Becoming a Health Coach Today, Cassie Johnson is finally holistically thriving. Her estrogen is healthy now. And her progesterone level is getting better as well as her acne. She was genuinely amazed to see significant results. Cassie Johnson also shared that she wanted to do more and this time, to help others. And as Cassie Johnson continued to change her diet and change her atmosphere, she also turned the way she handled stress. Cassie Johnson’s mom took a course at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2016, and that was part of why Cassie Johnson also wanted to enroll in a course there. Being able to become a coach was a bonus. She loved the program because it was very client-driven. Through coaching, Cassie Johnson helps people work on issues on their own. She would be there to guide them and ask them the right questions. Eating Healthy Before Cassie Johnson made these changes, she thought she was eating healthy. She thought she knew what eating healthy was. And it was terrible for her metabolism.  She didn’t even realize she was doing it until she started this health journey. “As I learned how to listen to my body, the biggest change I made was incorporating more vegetables. I started feeling better within days of doing that,” said Cassie Johnson. “And I also started a food and mood journal. I also paid attention to why I was eating and asked myself if it was because of hunger or stress.” Cassie Johnson then experimented with different kinds of carbs. She was pretty much no carb or low carb last year. Then she implemented more grains, cutting all gluten, implementing supplements as well. “That was a huge benefit. I had low energy and supplements gave me that boost I needed to make it through the day,” Cassie Johnson said.   Typical Diet Cassie Johnson usually has two to three cups of veggies in the morning, a huge salad at lunch and dinner would be a plant-based diet. She does not make much of mini snacks. Usually, ingredients of her diet include spinach, assorted veggies, olives and banana peppers, avocado, beans and quinoa on top for protein. She adds balsamic vinegar, wine, and pepper for flavor. Cassie Johnson also likes to incorporate sweet potatoes into her diet because it’s full of anti-oxidants. I do love sweet potatoes, and a favorite way to eat it is mixing raw cacao and coconut milk. It’s delicious and almost similar to chocolate mousse. Cassie Johnson also loves to experiment with smoothies. She makes sure there are protein and collagen. “I just found a great vegan protein that I have been putting in there. It has pea protein and digestive enzymes because pea protein is hard on our digestion,” said Cassie Johnson. “So, finding a vegan protein with the digestive enzymes was great. It tastes great and I even like putting in frozen blueberries and almond milk.” Taking Supplements Taking supplements is a big part of Cassie Johnson being holistically thriving. The longevity supplements she uses is the tangerine original which is like a berry flavor. It makes her smoothies taste like vanilla berry flavor. “I had SIBO for years and didn’t know it. And when I got on the longevity supplements, there is a prebiotic, probiotic and the 2.0. My SIBO got so bad,” shares Cassie Johnson. “Now I stay away. It’s a blessing. My SIBO is gone now, and I have never figured out why my digestion was all messed up.” SIBO Cassie Johnson says probiotics makes SIBO worse because it’s good bacteria in the wrong place. So, every time she takes the tangy tangerine, her stomach would start hurting. She knew it was the cause of it, but she just wasn’t sure why it didn’t click until her SIBO got terrible. “There are two types of SIBO. My test came back negative. But I know my body, and I know what symptoms come with SIBO,” said Cassie Johnson. “I researched and found there is another type of SIBO called hydrogen sulfide. They do not test for this at the moment, so my test came back negative.”  So, any foods high in sulfide like eggs, kale, and broccoli were the worst for Cassie Johnson. She had to cut out all those foods and started taking an herb mix called Calm Digestion from a company called Radiant Wonder. Taking GI Synergy also helped. Positive Changes Taking supplements had positive effects on Cassie Johnson. Within 48 hours, her energy level and sleep patterns improved. She managed stress better. Cassie Johnson also started using more natural products like natural soaps and detergents. “I was a lot more aware of my stressors in my job and relationships. How I perceive stress is something that I can control,” said Cassie Johnson.  She adds, “I do meditation, yoga, journaling, and reading, taking time for myself. Deep belly breathing triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, so it helps you to relax, and helps cortisol to decrease.” Regular Habits Cassie Johnson says journaling is best to do in the morning before your brain starts running and your thoughts go all over the place. As for meditation, she recommends setting a time for 5 to 10 minutes. Start with four deep breaths. “I do four seconds of inhaling with your belly, hold for seven seconds and then eight seconds out. Do it four times. Then go into a more natural breath,” Cassie Johnson said.  She adds, “I recently started setting intentions before meditation. So, I have been noticing that ability to problem solve. I haven’t meditated on supplements, but I have meditated on what kind of balance am I seeking here. Like what her body needs right now and try to understand its cues. Meditation has helped me with the ability to eat intuitively.”   Holistic Hustlers FB Group Cassie Johnson’s Facebook group is all about healing your relationship. She also offers training on a weekly basis. The practice explores your emotional side as well. It’s a community for women who have suffered eating disorder or sick of diets, confused on how and what to eat. Ultimately, Cassie Johnson advocates healing with food and finding nourishment beyond the plate as well. “Whatever health issue that you are struggling with, no matter how lost you feel, and you have no clue on what’s going on with your body, and you’re taking steps to heal it, just keep going,” said Cassie Johnson.  She adds, “Because your body can get itself well by itself. And it’s super powerful. It’s just about you taking the time to tune in to slow down and to listen to what it needs, follow through and get it what it needs.”  Bio  Cassie Johnson is 23 years old from San Antonio, TX. She is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach helping women who are sick of diets to develop a better relationship with food and find nourishment beyond the plate. She is incredibly passionate about health and wellness and loves sharing holistic health with the world.

327 Educating the Souls Spiritual Healing and Our Eternal Psychology, Spiritual Healer, Medium, Animal Communicator, Medical Intuitive, Eternal Psychologist, Author, and Natural Born Exorcist Eric Th

 Join the FREE Essential Oils Webinar to learn what TOP TEN essential oils should be in your medicine cabinet and how to use them! Learntruehealth.com/ten http://learntruehealth.com/ten    Visit Eric's Site: www.ericthorton.com   Spiritual Healing http://learntruehealth.com/spiritual-healing Our soul’s spiritual healing is a significant component of health.  Time and time again, we have stressed that optimal health is never only physical but rather mental, emotional and spiritual. My guest who will explain all about our soul’s spiritual healing is none other than Spiritual Healer, Medium, Animal Communicator, Medical Intuitive, Eternal Psychologist, Author, and Natural Born Exorcist Eric Thorton. Discovering His Gifts Eric Thorton grew up with people telling him his gifts are “on.” To them, he was a Master, referring to his innate ability like spiritual healing. He was born with the ability to see, hear, experience, communicate with things that are beyond human sight. “We all see things at the corner of our eyes. And we see a flash, but there’s nothing there,” said Eric Thorton. “I get to feel it right in front of me. But I learned at a young age not to talk about these things. Because people didn’t want to hear it.” When Eric Thorton would see a physical problem, he gets information primarily on anything he concentrates on. As he got older, Eric Thorton went into construction and used his gift on his work.  Physical Experience When his brother got the flu, Eric Thorton would feel his flu and get the flu. His brother, on the other hand, would feel better. Because of that, people thought that Eric Thorton was sickly when in fact, he absorbed his brother’s illness. “I’d resist the healing energy and cause heat in the palm of the hand and bottoms of feet. And then because you are resisting, your pancreas drains all your blood sugar, and you get this pain in your side,” explains Eric Thorton.  He adds, “I keep my hands and feet covered. And I get these dark red marks till they turn brown. I kept my hands to myself and didn’t share it with anybody.”  Brother’s Illness When Eric Thorton was ten, his 12-year-old brother had terminal cancer. A day before surgery, Sister Denise who was a friend of his mom, came to the hospital. She knew Eric Thorton was a healer and could do spiritual healing. Sister Denise told Eric Thorton to put his hand on his brother and join them in prayer. His brother went into surgery the next day, and the cancer was gone! “I started healing 30 years later when Sister Denise got me into this full-time. People feel odd around it, and they will feel special things. It’s an ongoing thing throughout my life. I can turn it off so to speak now. It can be overwhelming,” Eric Thorton said.  Healing A Friend Eric Thorton had a client from his construction business who was dying from cancer. He was a psychiatrist. His wife called Eric Thorton one day, to tell him her husband was in the hospital to die, and she was asking for a healer with spiritual healing capabilities. After a little prodding, Eric Thorton went with Sister Denise, and upon putting his hand over his client, Eric Thorton felt this tremendous energy come over himself. The whole process took an hour and drained Eric Thorton physically. His client had a demon inside of him which was making him sick. Eric Thorton believes the demon probably got into his son who was three to four years old. His son had instant pneumonia when Eric Thorton went home from the hospital. They prayed and went to the hospital where his son was diagnosed with double pneumonia. The next day, his son got better. Realizations Eric Thorton soon realized that if he was to help people, he can’t get sick. He had gifts. However, no books were written about people like him. “Gift of faith, not in a church, but in what you are experiencing. Gift of command, the gift of second sight, second knowledge, and hearing,” said Eric Thorton.  He added, “We are souls, and our body is temporary. But we have a soul experience. It is experiencing growth and other beings. I’ve learned that’s what we are. We identify with the body. And we identify with the body; we get things like allopathic medicine.”  But Eric Thorton also says allopathic medicine is not good at the difficult things or the things that get us ill. So, he is forced to listen to the guides, angels and other beings about what is going on with the individual and why they have the illness. An Exorcist Eric Thorton explains an exorcist removes energy. It can have a life of its own, or it can be in another being’s life. It can be dramatic, but most of it isn’t. He learned over the years that we label different types of energy and beings. And labeling makes it more difficult to come to a neutral state in the energetic field. “I’m constantly learning new types of energy like though forms. Thought forms can appear,” reveals Eric Thorton. “People can see them as a being or in the more intense as someone thinks of something, the thicker that energy gets. It can control the behavior of people that contribute or part of that culture. And it tells you when you are within the culture and when you are leaving that culture.” So, with people who have cancer, people like Eric Thorton disconnects them from their thought forms. They see some positivity.  Through the years Eric Thorton also learned what questions to ask and raise the questions. He looks at where the symptoms come from. Spiritual Healing and Energy To understand spiritual healing, we must first know that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. The energy is where everything we do affect us. Everything is in everything we do. Every intention, every thought and it affects our mental, spiritual and physical health.  “I work with a lot of doctors. We can clarify what’s blocking. What I learned through the years is that like energy comes together. The power of positive thinking is amazing,” said Eric Thorton. “And the power of negative thinking hits us first. It comes from a past life; it comes from this life, it comes from attitude we get from childhood. We all experience it.”  Understanding Anger Angry people don’t hang out with people who are not angry. Eric Thorton says, on the other hand, positive people don’t want to hang out with someone who is negative. “Angry people draw angry situations to them. They draw angry words, behavior, actions, and angry entities. And it is designed that way to make us grow,” Eric Thorton explains.  He adds, “Anger is a primary emotion. Our primary emotion is safety. Everything relates to safety. Even getting married or falling in love relates to safety. Because we do things better in numbers.” Understanding Emotions According to Eric Thorton, secondary emotion is things borne out of frustration. Frustration and love have to do with you being safe. While anger comes when you are frustrated, unheard and unrecognized, that’s why he says anger is a tertiary emotion. It’s a reaction to a reaction. “A soul doesn’t have emotions. The soul could learn emotions, and the soul looks at anger as amazing. It’s an opportunity for growth,” said Eric Thorton. “So, we look at anger, negative emotion, and positive emotion as an opportunity.” And Eric Thorton adds that if we all look into opportunity, we won’t try to get away from it. We wouldn’t deny it. But we would go through with the emotion. So, he advises looking at every emotion as an opportunity. Anger turns into positive searching. In the same way, that frustration is an opportunity for conversation. Room For Growth Eric Thorton looks at entities as something to learn from, grow from and then it can be removed from the energy field. He believes that if it is commanded out of someone’s energy, you do not hear anything. “You’re still leaving that negativity in that person. And that energy will come back and fill the space. That’s why a typical exorcism is so difficult,” Eric Thorton said.  When Eric Thorton was growing up, he got to see the psychology of what he was seeing energetically and watch it unfold physically. Then he started learning about this balance between spiritual energy and physical. Eric Thorton then began to understand what was going on. And that works with animals as well. “We grow from our past life. And we bring that into this life in the form of things that we’re good at and things that we have fears of. So, we bring those things forward. Our past life gives us most of our innate abilities. Most of it is positive,” said Eric Thorton.  Making a ChiBall Eric Thorton says making a ChiBall is mostly intention. Just do it. You experience it in your body; you have a reaction and channel that through the third chakra. “It comes out and creates this massive energy in front of you. Put your hands above your belly button,” Eric Thorton said. “Start thinking, and you can push at this space, so your hands are split apart. And you push together as you’re pushing this opportunity. You can feel resistance.” Feeling Your Way Through For the sake of the energy exchange, Eric Thorton says you don’t have to go through that extent. But it’s good practice to that extent, to start feeling it. And realize that something is happening here. Everybody can feel it. “Medicine men and women don’t participate in the drama of their clients. They have compassionate detachment, so they can have a way more compassion,” Eric Thorton said. “If you have compassion attachment, your body gets overwhelmed, and you get sick.”  He adds, “But if you have compassion detachment, compassion is wonderful. You get to help people without being harmed in the short run or the long run.”  Bio A session with Eric Thorton internationally recognized metaphysical counselor, exorcist, psychic, healer, and author of Educating the Soul, Spiritual Healing, and Our Eternal Psychology® can awaken the spirit within you. Healing and liberation through clear channels by a gentle, loving and humorous man. The gift you receive is your Self.  As a Spiritual Healer, Psychic, Medium and Exorcist, and animal talk and healer, Eric Thorton has found a profound new avenue to achieve physical, emotional and spiritual healing for you and your pets. He has accomplished this by combining the gifts of healing with those of the psychic, medium and exorcist.   Eric Thorton’s unique abilities are now available to others for both therapeutic and healing processes, in person in the Seattle area and remote sessions anywhere on the planet.  Eric Thorton points out that we spend much of our time taking care of the conscious mind and body for ourselves and our pets that we often lose sight of the essential parts, how our subconscious mind and our spirit play in the delicate balance of our health and that of our furry loved ones!

326 The Hormone Fix: Naturally Burn Fat, Boost Energy, Sleep Better, and Stop Hot Flashes, the Keto-Green Way and How to Breeze Through Menopause, Bioidentical Hormones, Foods To Balance Women's Hormo

FREE - The Hormone Fix BOOK: http://learntruehealth.com/fix The Hormone Fix BOOK FREE - The Breeze Through Menopause Masterclass: http://learntruehealth.com/breeze The Breeze Through Menopause Masterclass   The Hormone Fix http://learntruehealth.com/hormone-fix The Hormone Fix book is an excellent resource for those who want to learn to balance their hormones. Men need it as well, but for this episode, we’ll dive into the contents of The Hormone Fix by focusing on women. No less than the author of The Hormone Fix, Dr. Anna Cabeca, is going to cover all that in this episode. Tumultuous Journey At the young age of 16, Dr. Anna Cabeca saw her then 52-year old mother has diabetes. She had cardiac bypass surgery after being diabetic for 15 years. Her mom passed away when Dr. Anna Cabeca was 29. That time in her life motivated her to research, and eventually, Dr. Anna Cabeca became a women’s health advocate. Dr. Anna Cabeca soon fell in love with functional medicine. From college, she researched a lot and went to osteopathic medical school. At 38, Dr. Anna Cabeca struggled with her health. She was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure and early menopause. Another Child During her health crisis, Dr. Anna Cabeca was told she would never have another child, and that was devastating. She was on the road to diabetes. But when Dr. Anna Cabeca went on a healing journey around the world, she found natural solutions. Eventually, Dr. Anna Cabeca recovered became pregnant and delivered her youngest child at 41 years old. From her experience, Dr. Anna Cabeca realized that for one to gain health back, it’s 90% lifestyle and nutrition.  Maca When Dr. Anna Cabeca became well enough, she wanted to empower women naturally via a hormone fix through natural supplements and hormones to heal their body. Dr. Anna Cabeca recalled the time when she was diagnosed with her health issues and told that it’s unlikely to be irreversible as well as infertile. That time, someone advised her to take Maca. Maca grows above 11,000 feet in Peru. It contains a type of protein that is not found in any other plant. And Maca is an alkalinizing cruciferous vegetable and also good for breast health. “Maca is rich in arginine. Arginine increases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is exactly how Viagra works. It increases blood flow. It’s a fascinating root,” said Dr. Anna Cabeca.  But because Dr. Anna Cabeca hated the taste of Maca, she made some taste combinations like adding fruit or greens. Maca is an adrenal adaptogen. And so Dr. Anna Cabeca added some adaptogenic components like turmeric to her formula.  Hence, her product Mightly Maca was born. Role Of Cortisol Dr. Anna Cabeca went from breastfeeding to completely never having a drop of breast milk after her health trauma. If she intellectualized the physiology of her experience, she says she can recognize complete neuroendocrine access system breakdown. And it’s what people experience with PTSD. “And to a certain level, adverse childhood experiences. These tend to rear their ugly little head in the perimenopause period when our neuroprotective hormones such as progesterone are dropping,” Dr. Anna Cabeca said. When we are under stress, we get an outpouring of cortisol. So, our adrenal glands predominantly produce our cortisol. When cortisol goes up, our hormone oxytocin goes down eventually. And when cortisol is going up, progesterone levels are going down. Furthermore, progesterone starts to decline in our mid-30s. It is also the precursor to the production of cortisol. “When cortisol is being poured out, that’s your fight or flight responder. It’s the natural rescue hormone. So, we need it in times of crisis. It keeps us on higher alert, but it burns out our system over the long haul,” explains Dr. Anna Cabeca. She adds, “Everything you do that brings you joy increases oxytocin. It puts cortisol back in balance. Like sex, intimacy, orgasm, laughing, dancing, and hugs. Oxytocin is also the anti-aging hormone.” Causes of Low Progesterone Dr. Anna Cabeca says that if you have low progesterone, we experience estrogen dominance. Symptoms include PMS, hot flashes, irregular period, and irritability. We can get this experience of estrogen dominance because we have so many estrogen disruptors. “We need to do two things when we have low progesterone. First, clear out the excess estrogen. Then empower our body to have a healthy balance of progesterone naturally,” Dr. Anna Cabeca said. “We experience low progesterone naturally just with aging. When our ovarian function declines in our 30s, it also happens because of stress and toxins.” She adds, “Difficulty sleeping, irritability, waking up in the middle of the night, and PMS are also associated with low progesterone.” Effects of Sugar Regarding detoxification, Dr. Anna Cabeca believes it’s about improving nutrition in our diet. We can do this by removing toxins from our body, from alcohol, sugars, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, and even chemicals in our skin care products. “Sugar increases blood glucose, and that’s going to increase our insulin which can further disrupt progesterone and other hormones,” said Dr. Anna Cabeca. “I’m a fan of getting our body into ketosis so having intermittent fasting, having very low carbohydrates. But healthy low carbs, leafy greens, cruciferous veggie are my carbs of choice.” Dr. Anna Cabeca also advises eliminating many fruits we eat. Because fruit is sugar, too. We need a steady state blood sugar control. And the more glucose, the more insulin in the body, that’s where some people start to suffer from hypoglycemia and low blood sugar reaction.  Hormone Fix Women generally in need of a hormone fix are confused about what’s happening to our body and are just in a state of confusion pre-menopause. Moods are all over the place. Hence, Dr. Anna Cabeca says this clarity is getting into the keto green state, heightens awareness. That is the state you don’t want to leave. On the other hand, when women have fatty liver disease, one of the best types of hormone fix that we can do is intermittent fasting. Dr. Anna Cabeca advises giving your body time to rest and restore. But approach getting alkaline. Start checking urinary PH to get alkaline. And support phase one and phase two liver detox. Doing a Detox When we have elevated liver enzymes, Dr. Anna Cabeca says we have to support this detox process. Many people are aware of methylation. And we need to support methylation. “Because that’s one way our body takes toxic compounds and makes them less toxic. So that they can be removed safely from our body,” Dr. Anna Cabeca said. “Dark leafy veggies, cruciferous veggies, eggs, healthy proteins, and fats can help that process. Supplementation also helps.” Going Deeper One product Dr. Anna Cabeca recommends for women with gallbladder disease, or those who had their gallbladder removed is LV-GB complex. A company called Designs for Health produces it. Another key to gaining optimal health is making sure you get an excellent laboratory to administer your tests. Lab tests dig deeper. Look for essential lab markers like your vitamin D level. DHEA The DHEA hormone in men and women spike in our 20s. Then it goes downhill from there. But the healthier optimal number for women is over 100 and 200. For men, it should ideally be over 300. It depends on your lab results. Urinary PH and ketone testing are also important because we see how our lifestyle affects us. The hot flashes eventually go away, but many women suffer for five to ten years. “Insulin resistance is one of the reasons why women suffer. My program helps eliminate it. But vaginal dryness continues as well as loss of lubrication, discomfort, and urinary leaking,” said Dr. Anna Cabeca. She adds, “So that’s where I add in DHEA and natural moisturizer in a topical form. I created Julva, anti-aging topical cream for the vulva. Plant stem cells also add to the anti-aging benefits.” Progesterone and Estrogen According to Dr. Anna Cabeca, progesterone as we age, when we’re ovulating, should ideally be around above 10 or 20. It declines in the mid-30s. For 70 to 80-year-olds, she recommends using bioidentical topical progesterone cream as a hormone fix.  Ultimately, there are a lot of factors why our hormones are not balanced. That’s why we need hormone replacements. “Testosterone levels should also be in check. If a woman is post-menopausal, I avoid oral hormones especially oral estrogens. For those over 56 years old, I get them on oral estrogens to a transdermal estrogen, which is a topical estrogen formulation,” Dr. Anna Cabeca said. She adds, “Estrogen is important for brain health. It is important for hormone receptor status and balance with progesterone. Transdermal estrogen is safer than oral estrogen especially over the age of 56.” Typical Meal Dr. Anna Cabeca shares that a great example of a keto green breakfast is smoked salmon with capers, tomatoes, onions with steamed spinach. And drizzle it olive oil. It’s less than five grams of carbs and keeps blood sugar healthy for five hours or so. For lunch, Dr. Anna Cabeca likes a salad based on arugula, cilantro, and mint. Then add curry chicken salad on top of it. It’s chunk chicken with mayo, extra olive oil with turmeric or curry seasoning, and cut onions with sprouts. Then drizzle with olive oil and olive oil vinaigrette. An ideal dinner would be bone broth. Dr. Anna Cabeca usually has a tabouli salad with lots of parsley. You could also use cauliflower rice, but Dr. Anna Cabeca likes using broccoli sprouts for that extra crunch. Then add some cut tomatoes and onions with lemon juice, olive oil, and some dressing. Dealing With Cravings Dr. Anna Cabeca says when it comes to cravings, physiology drives behavior. It’s about willpower and physiological factors. We have to empower our physiology to improve our willpower. To enable yourself to say yes when you need to and no when you don’t. “Start the morning doing the right steps. Do it by working with digestive juices in the morning. Start with healthy fats. And fast between 12 to 15 hours,” advises Dr. Anna Cabeca. As for chocolate cravings, opt for dark chocolate. But periodically detox from sweeteners. Instead of stevia, Dr. Anna Cabeca suggests trying vanilla extract. Then blend with cinnamon. Weight Struggles Dr. Anna Cabeca is no different from most of us. She also struggled with weight her entire life. And she struggled with cravings. She realizes that part of that was due to food sensitivity. She knew keto was good for weight loss. There are even studies that show improved ketone secretion in the combination of adding alkaline components in the animal study model. Dr. Anna Cabeca also believes that there’s also a spiritual clarity that comes with fasting. That’s what we can also experience doing this keto green lifestyle. “No matter what you are doing, there’s hope. The more we take care of ourselves, better care we can take of everyone else. Put yourself on your priority list,” said Dr. Anna Cabeca.  Bio Dr. Anna Cabeca, an Emory University trained gynecologist and women’s health expert was diagnosed with early menopause at age 38 y.o. Devastated she went around the world looking for answers and healing and found it. She is now a triple board-certified, menopause and hormone expert. She is internationally acclaimed for her work in gynecology and obstetrics, integrative medicine, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine.  Dr. Anna Cabeca has changed the lives of thousands of women across the globe, connecting to others through humor, honesty, and passion.

I'm sure many of you have listened to the benefits of doing a ketogenic diet. But if it is not done right, your health will suffer more. If you're interested in doing ketogenic diet the right way, then this 5-Day Healthy Keto Challenge episode is definitely for you. Listen in to my guest, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, who will show you how to do it right. Before we get started, let's kick off the topic with an announcement. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo is giving out a free 5-Day Healthy Keto Challenge via her Facebook group. Cool prizes like US$ 25 Amazon gift card and a free Body Balance class worth $2,000 is up for grabs. Overview Before getting into the 5-Day Healthy Keto Challenge, you first have to understand what ketosis is. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says ketosis is not for everybody. It's a matter of knowing how your body is processing carbohydrates. "I saw so many people teaching keto, and I just cringe when I see pictures of what people are eating," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo.  She added, "So, I decided to do a healthy keto diet for people to reap the benefits of ketosis. And do it in a healthy, plant-based way. People usually end up getting thyroid issues from any diet intervention." Ketogenic Diet Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says a ketogenic diet is typically done with tons of oil, not whole foods plant-based fats, not whole foods fats. Mostly, we need to provide the macro and micronutrients that the thyroid needs. "I also don't believe that a ketogenic diet is necessarily meant for long-term use. Ultimately, it's a case to case basis depending on the person's health. The traditional way it's done is so devoid in food that is good for us," Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo said.  How Ketosis Works We have fuel that the body needs to burn for energy. And all the cells need energy. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says we also need energy for cellular metabolism and taking in nutrients. So, we have a choice between fats or sugar. "When we rely on sugar for fuel, we get hungry between meals. But when you rely on fat for fuel, the fat doesn't get converted to sugar. It is burned in the form of ketone bodies which is a byproduct of fat," explains Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Even if you're not eating anything at all, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says most of us have extra stores of fat. We got a thousand calories at most of the extra glycogen which is the storage starch sugar form. So, we have enough fat on our bodies to last for weeks or months. "The body gets efficient, and it's not constantly hungry. That's why so many people are doing it for the weight loss. It is also fuel for the brain and helps your memory, focus, repairs the brain, and calms the nervous system," Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo reveals. But Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also says we should make sure a health practitioner helps monitor us. Because if you do it wrong, most people end up taking in too much protein, because ketogenic is not a high-protein diet but rather a high-fat diet. Decreasing Inflammation By design, a ketogenic diet does not have grains in it. And according to Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, it doesn't have gluten and soy. Dairy is usually not there because it is high in sugar. "Grains sometime irritate the gut, leading to leaky gut. When ketogenic diet is done properly, and we're doing it with anti-inflammatory fats and anti-oxidants, we get the best of both worlds," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Recommended Diet Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo recommends eating highly-pigmented vegetables and fruits. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, it is nutrient-dense and low calorie. "Generally, nutrient-dense foods are deficient in one thing---calories. So, you need to add to those nutrient-dense foods. Foods that are calorie-rich but also contain nutrients," Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo said.  Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also recommends salads and non-starchy veggies with good fats, avocados, olives, coconut, nuts, and seeds. She says that when you heat oils, you create oxidated byproducts. Different oils have the varying extent to which the damage happens. Because oxidated byproducts have free radicals damage to the cells. And that's what we should avoid. Effects On Gallbladder When we eat a lot of fat, we're putting a lot of demand in the gallbladder to produce and release bile to help with the digestion. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says people who have had their gallbladder removed should be cautious before going on a ketogenic diet. "Fat burns cleaner in the brain than sugar. It doesn't have as many byproducts in the brain unlike sugar," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo.  She adds, "Some studies have linked people with Alzheimer's disease who had an excess of sugar and insulin throughout their lives. Insulin is a fat storage hormone that has a lot of negative effects." Finding Your Sweet Spot There are a lot of tools to keep your blood sugar in check. One is the glucometer where it will instantly show what your blood sugar level is. The ketone meter, on the other hand, is used to test blood levels of beta-hydroxybutyrate, a ketone that your body produces when in ketosis. You can also get a urine test or have a lab do your bloodwork. This way, you can monitor what foods you eat as well as your stress levels and sleep patterns. From there, you can modify to keep yourself in an ideal range. It's not about the diet but the lifestyle. Doing tests teaches you how to take control of your life. The Sweet Spot Solution Sweet Spot 30-Day Metabolic Reset Kit contains the shortcut plan for you to follow for 30 days to jumpstart you back into balance. Most common health challenges can be traced back to insulin resistance or pre-insulin resistance --- a condition that most medical professionals wouldn't catch until it became full-blown Metabolic Syndrome or Diabetes and after a lot of damage had been done. The Sweet Spot Solution is not a cleanse or a deprivation diet. It's an easy-to-follow program that includes 30 days' worth of recipes, menu plans, and checklists that make it quick and easy to create delicious, filling waist-trimming meals. As soon as you register, you'll be sent to a web page that includes MP4 videos, MP3 audios and PDF documents. Everything you need is laid out in a thoughtful format on one easy to access page. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says you will witness a dramatic change in your blood sugar and insulin resistance. You’ll reverse damage to your insulin receptors and even improve their function. Healthy Levels of Glucose According to Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, somewhere in the 70s or low 80s is an ideal glucose level. Although lower than 70 is still fine. A lot of people who eat more towards ketogenic, their blood sugar gets lower. If you feel awful and your blood sugar is below 60, you should also identify what is metabolically out of balance. Maybe you are toxic and need to work on your liver. It can also be the lack of nutrients to keep blood sugar steady. It varies from person to person. Causes of Insulin Resistance One cause is low levels of micronutrients. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says the majority is because of continually being in a state of hyper insulin and high blood sugar for so long. We have to dig deeper. "The cells on the outside that are supposed to pick up insulin and glucose and to take them into the cell to use them to make energy, get damaged. They get damaged due to chemicals, inflammatory chemicals, toxins, oxidized fats," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo.  She adds, "Or they could be damaged by high levels of insulin over a long period. When you expose a cell to too much of something, it creates defenses. High levels of a ketogenic diet possibly affect thyroid function and receptors as well."  Importance of Sleep Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also says people who are training and working muscles may get away with a little more sugar in their diet than the average person. Lack of sleep probably has some inflammatory mediators. Things that don't get cleaned up during a good night's sleep affect the cells and increase insulin resistance. Even a healthy person can have a temporary insulin resistance the day after a bad night's sleep. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo likewise believes that the standard American diet and lifestyle for processed foods, lots of oxidized fats and chemicals in the environment affect insulin resistance. Why Keto Diet Balances Hormones All the stored hormones come from fat. All the stored hormones come from cholesterol. And if we are too deficient in fat, we don't have the building blocks to make those hormones. "My Healthy Keto Diet is good for people whose weight has plateaued. Not everybody has to be vegetarian or vegan to do this diet. But it can be a hundred percent. This diet is also good for people who want a healthier way to eat," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo.  She adds, "People with inflammatory joint and other diseases get better because the diet takes out irritants. Ultimately, get a health practitioner to guide you through the diet." Typical Day Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo usually doesn't eat her first meal before lunchtime. She starts her day with a green smoothie.  And she usually has avocadoes or hemp seeds, walnuts, coconut meat, coconut yogurt or some fermented food. For those who want more recipe ideas, check out Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo's Hormone Hacking Breakfast Menus on her website. It gives you an idea of what the first meal of the day should consist of. "I space my meals four hours apart. Lunch can be a wrap instead of bread or a nori wrap. There are some nice slices of bread and crackers that make nice sandwiches. Soups are also good," suggests Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. "Dinner can be a stir fry like stuffed peppers. I also use a lot of sauerkraut, yogurt, and kimchi. Feeding your microbiome with fermented food is good." Damage from High Sugar Your red blood cells are covered with sugar. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains that people who have high levels of sugar over time, they are damaging the blood vessels and nerve supply in the feet and fingers. That's why a lot of persons end up with amputations. It also damages parts of the kidney. One of the common causes of kidney disease is uncontrolled high blood sugar. It does the same thing in the retina of the eyes. "Insulin is a little bit different. High levels of insulin stiffen the blood vessels. Which in turn, causes hypertension," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. "If you are in a state where there has been a lot of insulin and damage to those vessels, they are much stiffer. And they don't respond the same way. That can cause sudden heart attacks and stroke."  The 5-Day Healthy Keto Challenge The 5-Day Healthy Keto Challenge was developed as a strategy that would help kids with epilepsy. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says it was not intended for healthy people to do it long term. And it has not been tested long-term. "I do know that you want to be measuring, you want to be looking into bloodwork, you want to be sure it is not throwing you into an unhealthy state," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. It's a case by case basis. So, it's important to listen to your body and get some guidance from a health practitioner before going into The 5-Day Healthy Keto Challenge. Other Programs Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo's website has so many services and programs that can add to your knowledge about nutrition. They have the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology and a couple of shorter programs. One short program is about insulin resistance, so you become a certified insulin resistance coach. They also have a full certification program on nutritional endocrinology. It has sections on functional assessment mastering and functional nutrition mastering. Looking at psychological issues, body system, and lifestyle pieces is likewise part of the program. "Don't take this lightly. This is your health. You get this one body. Enjoy it, take care of it while you're here. Do the best you can. Because nothing tastes as good as healthy feels," said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Get Connected With Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo!

There have also been numerous opinions on whether iodine is good or bad for our health in the long run. To enlighten us about how to heal your thyroid holistically and other health issues linked to our thyroid, I’m so happy to have Dr. Alan Christianson back on the show. Dr. Alan Christianson has helped so many people over the years addressing thyroid and adrenal issues. A significant component of how to holistically heal your thyroid is through the right diet. That’s why Dr. Alan Christianson wrote the book, The Metabolism Reset Diet, which is launching on January 29. Thyroid Health Dr. Alan Christianson says thyroid health does affect a lot of systems in the body. Especially brain development on kids. And to date, he says it’s been estimated that there’s a lot of billion people on planet earth who didn’t get the brain function they deserve because they lacked iodine as they grew up. And whenever the topic is about how to heal your thyroid holistically, iodine often comes up.  For those who are unaware, iodine is one of the first elements that is ever isolated. The name itself comes from the violet color the element has. “The thyroid medication contains active thyroid hormones. And they are built from iodine. And getting too much can seem a lot like too little regarding how it affects the body,” explains Dr. Alan Christianson.  He adds, “The amount that you need is about a hundredfold of what you find in the bloodstream. So, the bloodstream concentrates iodine. And the concentrator is important because it’s a nutrient that you wouldn’t get on a consistent basis. But the pitfall about that concentrator is that if we get a lot of it, we shut down the factory.” Too Much or Too Little Iodine? Before you embark on the journey of how to heal your thyroid holistically, there’s a lot of tests available in the market to aid you in finding the best solution. There are spot urine tests, which means random samples of urine is analyzed. Dr. Alan Christianson also shares that there are the 24-hour urine test and a recent thing called iodine challenge test. The iodine challenge test is where you take a big dose and see how much you excrete in the time afterward. “A lot of those tests are decent to gauge how much iodine a population has. So, if you were to go to Central Africa and screen a thousand people with spot urinary iodine test, you get a good hunch,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “But because there is so much variation in any one person’s random urine sample, you have to test thoroughly.”    He adds, “Some of the best tests would only require about 200 tests for one person to have 90% of accuracy. So, there are no good tests, but thankfully there’s also no known human diversity regarding iodine absorption or excretion.” Diet Choices To heal your thyroid holistically, diet is a critical component. Dr. Alan Christianson reveals that one population can be at risk for getting low iodine if their food is more stringent and that’s pregnant women. And with the healthy intake of seafood and a good variety of produce in the diet, it’s easy not to become deficient. The other group that can be at risk are raw food vegans who don’t use any iodine-fortified salt. Dr. Alan Christianson likes sea salt for general use because this way, you get some magnesium. So, if someone was consuming no animal products and especially just raw foods, they can get low iodine. “Sea vegetables are rich in iodine. Most forms of sea vegetables have enough to be useful but not enough to throw your way out of the ballpark,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “Kelp helps a lot. Tiny amounts could be useful. Nori has pretty reasonable amounts of iodine.” Dr. Alan Christianson also mentioned that by adding iodized salt to food, people could get reasonable amounts. He also said that pretty much all multi-vitamins will have between a hundred or two hundred micrograms.  Too Much Iodine While On Medication Dr. Alan Christianson explains that if someone is between their supplements, their diet, and medication, it creates more overall resistance to thyroid hormones in their body. So, the amounts that we need regarding thyroid and iodine are a small quantity, like one to two hundred micrograms or a tenth of a grain of salt. “Some studies show that megadose iodine is an effective treatment for fibrocystic breast disease. We have to think through side effects, and thyroid complication as whether or not is it worth it overall,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. Hashimoto’s Disease A Japanese physician discovered Hashimoto’s because the Japanese have the highest rates of autoimmune thyroid disease and thyroid cancer. According to Dr. Alan Christianson, they also have the world’s highest iodine intake. In the U.S., Dr. Alan Christianson reveals that we have a lot of goiter cases especially in a lot of great lakes and areas where there is a lot of fresh water. But we didn’t have autoimmune thyroid disease. “The thing with Hashimoto’s as an autoimmune disease, if you don’t see it then you don’t know that it’s not there,” Dr. Alan Christianson said. “So, people have hypothyroidism, and sometimes the doctor may test for thyroid antibodies. Half the time, the thyroid antibodies are negative.”  He adds, “But people who have Hashimoto’s disease, half the time their thyroid antibodies never show up. So, there are few cases of hypothyroidism that are not autoimmune.” Graves’ Disease Graves’ disease, on the other hand, is also known as toxic diffuse goiter. It is an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. Based on numerous case studies, it often results in and is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. Apart from that, it frequently results in an enlarged thyroid. “The part about being hyperthyroid perpetuates the autoimmune attack. You may see odd things that may not be helpful but seems to be effective for one person,” Dr. Alan Christianson explains. “And with more appropriate treatment, in pulling someone out of hyperthyroidism and getting iodine right, many can heal and stay stable again.”  He adds, “It’s not about the pill. The question is always can I be vital and happy and thriving again. So, focus on that one. It’s really about how you’re going to feel and function.” Advocating For Ourselves Dr. Alan Christianson says the patient’s well-being is most important. But thyroid levels also affect health in ways that you wouldn’t know based on symptoms alone. Your TSH signal, for example, that’s a growth signal to the thyroid. And it can be a growth signal for something connected with health issues like heart disease and diabetes. “So, it’s important to monitor our thyroid levels annually, to make sure we’re not getting too much or too little. Cancer that’s growing the fastest among women is thyroid cancer. The rates have gone up since the end of the 90s. It has gone up three-fold,” shares Dr. Alan Christianson. Dr. Alan Christianson also believes that people with thyroid disease should have a minimum of a baseline ultrasound when the thyroid is down. The American College of Gynecology, in fact, recommends self-neck checks on a monthly basis as part of wanting to heal the thyroid holistically.  Nutrient Deficiencies Dr. Alan Christianson stressed that selenium is essential for all things thyroid. Those who are low in selenium are more likely to have an iodine deficiency and vice versa. “So, it’s most important to get a screen for your TSH and your thyroid antibodies. And it’s important to know not just what’s normal but what should optimal look like,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “There’s a certain amount of thyroid antibodies that are considered perfectly fine.” Other Measures Dr. Alan Christianson says the number of people who have thyroid problems is much higher than people who have perfect thyroid function. And when you look at the healthiest populations, their average scores of T4 and T3 pretty much are the average scores in the blood test. T3 and T4 are highly regulated by the body, and they only reflect the state when the body is off by extremes. On the other hand, T2 is not measurable. Dr. Alan Christianson says healthy people have reasonable amounts of that. People who are on thyroid treatment that does not include T2, tend to be lacking in it. He also said that T2 by itself seems to have the most significant roles to play in metabolic rates, and also would regulate ovarian function. Truth About Cortisol There have also been references wherein popularized the idea of how the adrenals are unable to produce cortisol. Dr. Alan Christianson mentions that there’s a disease called Addison’s disease. He went on to say that at a surface look, someone with Addison’s disease could have very similar cortisol levels to another. “If you assume the problem is low cortisol, somebody is likely to think of giving more cortisol. And a lot of cases like that where someone is giving you a lot of cortisol at your worst, you might feel a lot better short-term,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “But you can also measure the brain talking to the adrenals, in the same way, the brain talks to the thyroid.” And the difference between Addison’s disease and adrenal fatigue is that in adrenal fatigue, the brain is telling you to slow down. That’s why Dr. Alan Christianson believes that prognosis can differ from person to person. Hence, in wanting to heal your thyroid holistically, one has to do the research apart from finding an excellent practitioner who is knowledgeable. Ultimately, it’s about how to become a self-advocate for your health. “Stay active with their work and hold on to it. You can radically transform the quality of your life by doing the right things with your lifestyle. Don’t give up on having that vision come through for you,” said Dr. Alan Christianson.  Bio  Dr. Alan Christianson is a Naturopathic Endocrinologist who focuses on Thyroid function, adrenal health, and metabolism.  Dr. Alan Christianson has been actively practicing in Scottsdale since 1996 and is the founding physician behind Integrative Health.

It is essential to understand that a building biologist can significantly help improve our health.  Check out this episode where I have Integrative Health Coach, Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and Building Biologist Cathy Cooke who can explain how an expert like her can change your life. True Health is not about eating healthy and having a positive mindset. Sometimes, we do all that, yet we will find ourselves still dealing with chronic issues and erratic sleeping patterns. And more often than not, the culprit is something invisible like electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and other harmful frequencies in our environment. Personal Struggles Like most experts, their road to better health and helping people was brought about by personal health issues. And Cathy Cooke is no different. She struggled with health issues for 30 years starting around 1986. And even got bit by a tick at 12 years old. “Lyme disease was not on the forefront that time. I got extremely sick. And I tried to find answers by seeing dozens of practitioners,” recalls Cathy Cooke. And just a couple of a years ago she was finally able to improve her health with the help of a doctor. Cathy Cooke then researched everything—food, supplements, and the environment. And the more she got back to nature, the closer she was to how we’re supposed to live, the healthier she felt. Eventually, Cathy Cooke wanted to help other people.  Educating Herself In her mission to help others, Cathy Cooke pursued further studies and training. She started to eat better but had sleep issues. She also had tinnitus in her left ear for ten plus years.  Through her research, Cathy Cooke noticed that EMFs kept coming up. She then decided to stop using a cellphone for a few days and her tinnitus when away within two days. Cathy Cooke then stopped using wi-fi or decreased exposure. She began having a better sleep pattern and her thyroid issue, and anxiety went away. That made her all the more determined to train as a building biologist. “When you close the wi-fi, the heaviness goes away. It’s a difficult thing to get skeptical people to understand because they don’t see it. Something happens at a deeper level that’s affecting you on a cellular level,” said Cathy Cooke. She adds, “If we are in an electromagnetic environment and we have metals, that’s also going to act like an antenna. And will cause us to have more symptoms.” Building Biologist A building biologist will be able to assess your house for air quality and what they look out for is molds. Mold exposure can be devastating, as well as chemical exposure. Plus, a building biologist also looks out for areas that emit electric, magnetic, radio frequencies and microsurge electrical pollution or dirty electricity. According to Cathy Cooke, the Institute of Building Biology and Ecology started in Germany in the 80s. After World War II, Cathy Cooke says soldiers were promised a house and all the chemicals left over from the war. Out of those excess chemicals came all of these chemically-based manufactured products like pesticides. And a lot of it went into building materials. “Many people started to get sick in Germany inside their homes. Because all the chemicals are off-gassing. So, the Building Biology started in Germany to help these people to address their health symptoms and to clean up air quality,” Cathy Cooke said. She adds, “And we started bringing in this EMF component. So, in the 90s, we developed a branch of Building Biology Institute here in the US. That’s where I was trained in air quality and EMF.” Electric Component Cathy Cooke explains that electric components come from electrical wires running through your walls. And then voltage comes out to our living space. Our body is electric, so when we add on these other fields, Cathy Cooke says our body has a hard time communicating because it has human-made electric fields interfering with that communication. Magnetic Component Magnetic fields are from power lines. Cathy Cooke explains that if you have wiring errors, there are magnetic fields. The magnetic field will also come from appliances. Some appliances include the refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, and even an alarm clock. Another appliance is a space heater which should be 8 to 10 feet away from you. Microsurge Electrical Pollution Microsurge Electrical Pollution, on the other hand, comes from the power that we are putting onto our electrical system. Cathy Cooke says the power that our gadgets are hooked on to our electrical lines creates spikes or a microsurge of electricity on the sign waves. Radio Frequency Radio frequency is what most people think of when we are talking about EMF. Cathy Cooke reveals that our cellphone, Bluetooth devices, smart meter, and all wireless communication devices have radio frequencies. In recent years, there has been a growing concern over the impact of 5G. The 5G frequency has not been determined yet, but there are a lot of uncertainties. So, Cathy Cooke says the goal is going to be shorter waves. But she also says that just because one frequency is higher than another, it does not mean it is worse or better because there are different impacts. Steps We Can Do One main suggestion of Cathy Cooke is not to use wi-fi. Instead, get an ethernet cable and plug the computer into the modem or router. This cuts out radio frequency exposure. If there are a lot of members in your household who need to use the internet, Cathy Cooke recommends running multiple ethernet cords through your house. Or you can also unplug if you are not using it, especially at night. Another way is to put your router in a shielding material like a metal box or place a cloth drape over the router. Cathy Cooke has that special type of cloth shield on her website. She also cautions people on the clothes they wear. “Not everybody does well with material that they wear or put on your body. Some may find that it makes those symptoms worse. For the highly sensitive people, they take the jewelry off,” said Cathy Cooke. She also suggests educating our neighbors regarding the effects of wi-fi, especially when you live in a building with so many units having their own wi-fi devices. Encourage communication between members of the community and get the guidance of a building biologist.  LEDs According to Cathy Cooke, the flicker from LEDs disrupts the nervous system, and we can’t see that. So, it is better to have old school incandescent light bulbs. Not the CFOs nor the compact fluorescent light. Because they give off a lot of dirty electricity. Safer Use Of Gadgets Cathy Cooke recommends placing our cellphone in airplane mode. It is also not advisable to use a cordless phone which is even worse than a cellphone. The is also a meter that you can buy to measure frequency. Otherwise, just like you can plug your computer in the ethernet, you can do the same thing with your phone. You can’t receive a phone call, but there are ways to make phone calls through the internet. Another way is using a safe sleeve phone cover. It has a shield that will drop some of the exposure. Cathy Cooke also recommends using an air tube headset with the phone. An air tube headset is like earbuds, but halfway up, the electrical cord turns into this plastic tube. So, the cord or wire is not going all the way to your head. This way, it cuts off the electrical field. Green Wave Filters Green wave filters can address areas affected by magnetic fields. But Cathy Cooke says one has to know how to test or use this to prevent the situation from getting worse.  The green wave filters along with other products to reduce EMFs are available on Cathy Cooke’s website. “How much is your addiction to technology impeding the things that bring fulfillment and joy to your life,” said Cathy Cooke. “And if we look at it that way, I think it’s sometimes easy for us to put our technology down and refocus why we are here. And what brings fulfillment to our life.”  Bio Cathy Cooke has been working as an Integrative Health Coach since 2014. She is a Board-Certified Holistic Nutritionist with the National Association of Nutritional Professionals. Recognizing that many of her clients were ‘doing everything right’ yet still suffering from health issues, she realized that many home and work environments were contributing to illness.  Seeing dramatic improvements in her health after limiting radio frequency exposure from wifi and cell phones, Cathy Cooke received training and certification from the International Institute of Building Biology and Ecology, affording her the expertise to evaluate all areas in a person’s life that may be contributing to illness.  Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Cathy Cooke now lives in Boise, Idaho. She is available for consulting via Skype and phone and is also willing to travel as needed for home assessments. Get Connected With Cathy Cooke!

322 How To Build Your Dreams, Get Past Paralyzing Fear, Self Doubt and Procrastination to Achieve What You Desire and Deserve with Cara Brookins, Author of Rise: How a House Built a Family

Website: https://carabrookins.com Rise: How a House Built a Family Audio Book and Paperback: https://amzn.to/2RopdrA Cara Brookins is best known for being the mom who built her own house using YouTube tutorials. She has been entertaining, educating, and inspiring audiences with her keynotes and presentations since 2004. She’s the author of eight books, including Rise, How a House Built a family, which tells the story of building her 3500 square foot house with the help of her four children by watching YouTube tutorials and googling things like foundation work, plumbing, and gas lines. News of Cara's family story went viral in more than 75 countries and was viewed two billion times. Rise has now been optioned to become a major motion picture. Inspiring audiences to build bigger lives remains Cara's greatest passion.   Build A Life You Want http://learntruehealth.com/build-a-life-you-want To build a life you want is what we should all aim for. Life is short. And it is up to us to make the most of it, regardless of what situation we are in. My guest today, Author of Rise: How a House Built a Family, Cara Brookins is such an inspiration. From dealing with domestic violence to building her own house, she has defied the odds and proved that it is indeed possible to build a life you want.  Domestic Violence Cara Brookins weathered through many storms before she became who she is today. She was a victim of extreme domestic violence when she married her first husband who slowly descended into having full-blown paranoid schizophrenia. Because he became dangerous, they divorced. But for ten years after that, he kept coming back and tormented Cara and her children. Then Cara Brookins met another guy, who seemed to be the right answer. They eventually married, but he also ended up physically abusive. After two terrible marriages and children who were aged 17, 15, 11, and two at that time, the experience affected her two older kids. The situation turned even more severe since they now needed a place to live. Building A House Her failed marriages and the threat of being homeless gave Cara Brookins the idea of perhaps building a house herself.  They were living in a house that was up for sale that time and could not afford to keep it. She believed that it was primarily the need more than the inspiration to make their lives better. So, in the Fall of 2007, when Youtube was a brand-new website then, Cara Brookins started to research. Cara Brookins was a computer programmer by profession, and that helped a lot. At first, she started watching videos for work to learn new computer languages. And then she saw videos on how to build a house. Broaching the idea to her kids, they were open to try it. They only had money to buy a piece of land and building materials but not enough money to hire people to build their house.  Getting Started Cara Brookins says people helped along the way. Building the house took 20-hour days for nine months straight. She had to make sure they were on schedule because she had a 9-month construction loan. “In the beginning when we first had this idea, it didn’t seem radical. People were stunned, but my kids were already beaten down for more than a decade at that point. There was always somebody in control. And there was always this layer of fear. There was no action we could take that would make it better,” recalls Cara Brookins.  She adds, “This idea of building a house was the first time that gave us the opportunity to go out and take physical action to visibly and tangibly make our lives better.”  Challenges Before building a house, Cara Brookins and her kids were stuck in a crippling survival mode. They didn’t have a close family that could help them through the trauma. “You kind of pull inside yourself, each one of you and each day. We had to quickly learn not only how to communicate what we need and our ideas. And we also learned how to anticipate one another’s needs and talents,” Cara Brookins said.  She adds, “The level of doubt is hard to describe because, in retrospect, people think it must be fun building, exciting and empowering. Instead, when you bite off more than you can chew, it knocks you to your knees. Everything we tried to do, it was multiple setbacks before we move forward. Not surprisingly, that level of self- doubt, made them so much harder.” Realizations According to Cara Brookins, to build a life you want, we want to think that the moment you take action, it’s the changing point. But for her, it’s like after the action was taken. “That happened to me most often. I was forced into taking action because I had to. The city and the bank would not let me proceed with this house until I had water. A deadline forced me,” said Cara Brookins.  She adds, “And once that happened, I can see in retrospect how ridiculous my situation was. And how ridiculous I had made my situation by not taking that option. That’s when I made this conscious effort not to do it anymore.” Taking From Experience Cara Brookins believes that when you feel paralysis and fear to take the next step to build the life you want, we usually think of the worst-case scenario. And believe that we are going to survive, learn from the experience and be better next time. For Cara Brookins, the transition was after she saw the effect of her doubt, hesitation, paralysis, and procrastination. “Get over yourself. Stop taking yourself so seriously. Walk in the lows and ask that ridiculous question. Have fun with it,” suggests Cara Brookins. “We learned that early on. Whatever your goal is, and if you go all in, you will figure out a way if it is your only way of survival.” Cara Brookins also believes that to build the life you want; you need to put reminders in your path. And designing your life around the thing, you want to do and the person you want to be. Another important factor on how to build the life you want is recognizing that when you procrastinate, our brain is going to be continually fighting for that feeling of wanting or accomplishing something. Cara Brookins says it’s a whole lot easier for it to win at something it knows you are successful at that for your brain to allow you to go out and take that risk. “As soon as you are aware of that process, your brain is designed to hold you back. Because doing risky things can get you eaten by a tiger,” said Cara Brookins. “That’s your primitive brain saying don’t go trying difficult things, stay here and do the safer thing. That’s how we get trapped in these cycles.” Positive Outcome Today, Cara Brookins and her family reside in a 3,500 square foot house. The house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a big library, a 3-car garage, a big shop, and a treehouse. While there aren’t that many photos of the construction period, Cara Brookins’ house is a testament that anything is possible.  She is still humbled by the fact that her story inspired so many people. “The kids became close. Not only do they support each other but they call each other out. And lovingly call each other out. There is a level of honesty,” Cara Brookins said.  She adds, “The key is in our society. We have forgotten the value of taking physical action of going out and doing something that’s physically hard. And the way that it bonds you together.” Rise: How a House Built a Family Cara Brookins’ Rise: How a House Built a Family book, inspired many people to do their projects or build a life they want. The book has lessons that you can apply to your business as well. The book also appealed to men who took Cara Brookins by surprise. “In retrospect, it shouldn’t have because it is that physical activity that men do better and more often than women. Men are better in turning to that while women tend to turn to more talk and internal things,” said Cara Brookins. In getting out of your comfort zone, the risk you feel is natural. Because Cara Brookins says, it is scary to put everything you got into one massive dream. And the only way that you can make something that big is to put everything into it. The first time Cara Brookins considered writing a book about building her house was when she was talking to another writer who encouraged her to write about it.  That writer’s agent called Cara Brookins who eventually tried to write the story. But the book didn’t sell. It took Cara Brookins six years of constantly giving up and going back in writing fiction. Because it was so hard for her to tell the bad part and she worried about the effect, it would have on her kids. “To get to a point where I was willing to share the worst moments of my life, I wrote in a raw and honest way. In a way that it was exceptionally vulnerable. And my kids had to be ok with it, too,” said Cara Brookins. Then when her agent called to inform her that it was sent to publishers, the next hurdle was to see how many people like the book. Many did, and the rest is history.  Maximize Resources When Cara Brookins started her journey in building a house, there weren’t many resources available. Now, anything is possible. With smartphones and so many resources online, she encourages everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to explore and learn. “We live in an amazing time. But then it becomes hard to focus. And hard to figure out which of those things you need or want. And how do those things go together,” said Cara Brookins. “I think that’s more of the procrastination we have now. Many people are paralyzed in their reality.” Motivational Keynote Speaker Cara Brookins’ profession was being a computer programmer for 18 years. In her spare time, she wrote books. But becoming a motivational speaker allowed her to reach out and inspire more people to build the life they want. “It’s hard to get on stage. Because it proves that no matter how many big things you do, you will still face other things that are big, scary and challenging to overcome and have to talk yourself through it,” Cara Brookins said.  She adds, “The more that I did it from each time I learned, I change my presentation the way I saw myself. And the way I saw my goal. My goal was not for me. But it was for the audience, and what I wanted them to feel. It transformed into this thing that I love.” Ultimately, becoming a speaker is a good thing because Cara Brookins loves sharing what she went through. She also does workshops for companies about procrastination. See You At The Movies Although Cara Brookins plans to write some more non-fiction books, she is currently busy ironing out the details of an upcoming Hollywood film about her life. Cara Brookins is co-producing the film along with the lead actress of the upcoming movie. She hopes the movie will inspire people to take action and do great things. And that their past does not define their future. “It’s about how to make yourself the type of person to take action. Part of it is setting goals and declaring it. It’s also to improve the way that your current situation looks and feel,” said Cara Brookins.  She adds, “Whatever you think you might be able to do, whatever you think you want the most in your life, go do it.”  Bio Cara Brookins is best known for being the mom who built her own house using YouTube tutorials.

321 The Vibration of Beliefs and Frequency of Emotions, Gaining Control of Your Body, Healing, Mindset and Results, Human Potential, Memetic Energy, Reversing Diabetes, Sustainable Weight Loss, Jeremy

Empath-x.com vibemytribeonline.com http://learntruehealth.com/ithrive   Vibration http://learntruehealth.com/vibration The vibration of Beliefs And Frequency of Emotions is a way of gaining control of our body. It is healing and unleashes the human potential. The person who will help us understand the power of vibration is my guest, Jeremy Koester. Traumatic Past Jeremy Koester, who is an educator has a truly inspiring story. Aside from losing over a hundred pounds, he was able to bounce back from a traumatic childhood and helping people who need a solid support system. Jeremy Koester was born into a lot of generational trauma. His grandmother was abused and raped when she was a teenager, so she ran away from Galveston at the age of 17.  She went to Hollywood to be a starlet and met Jeremy Koester’s grandfather who came from Germany. The trauma that Jeremy Koester’s grandmother brought with her was passed down to Jeremy Koester’s father who ran away from home when he was 13. As for Jeremy Koester, he shares that he did better coping than his elders but still had a lot of mental health genetics and behaviors passed down to him. Personal Struggle Jeremy Koester was morbidly obese at age 33 and was depressed. He felt he was trying to be something outside of himself that wasn’t authentic. And thought that he was doing what someone else told him he had to do. “I felt there had to be something more to life than this. So I decided to change the way I use food. This was in August 2010. I made better food choices. It took two years to lose 100 pounds,” recalls Jeremy Koester. During this time, Jeremy Koester started seeing mental issues. He got divorced, but his kids motivated him to keep going. It was never really about losing weight but instead being passionate about his life. “Going through those things, facing those things allowed me the opportunity to develop myself into this guy that I am now,” Jeremy Koester said. “Getting to live life passionately, and help people by teaching them how to be advocates for their health.” Advocating Your Health Jeremy Koester advises starting with the things that are picking up at the moment. He says the most important thing is what’s present in that exchange. For Jeremy Koester, everything is vibration. It’s about the information being passed to the things that we believe is coming from our nervous system. And they are making meaning instantaneously through their prior associations. “Most of us are locked in this choosing framework. What we’re choosing is based on a belief system that was mostly handed to us,” said Jeremy Koester. “I open up the space to observe their choices. And I open it up with gratitude. Having an internal dialogue when you make choices is important. You have to ask yourself what you want.” He adds, “We all have completely different genetic makeups. And we all have different habits that brought us to today like bloodwork or our environment. The beliefs that we have set up the behavior of how we show up and choose in the world.” Vibration Jeremy Koester says it is scientific that it is the vibration of our body that we pick up on each other. There is a vagal nerve tone that’s resonating from our bodies. And looking at the spaces to be able to make those shifts is what he is so passionate about helping people be an advocate for themselves. “The happy chemical serotonin, 95% of that is produced in your gut biome. It’s about balance and getting back to homeostasis,” Jeremy Koester explains. “The main storyline to my experience is how impactful my diet is to my emotional life. Every one of us is a unique bag of science. We are all completely different.” He adds, “We have a lot of opportunities right now especially in western culture to eat well and to do right by our chemistry.”  Home Frequency Jeremy Koester says the emotions we feel are a frequency that we are putting through our body and cells out into our environment. It specifically goes into the spaces of what we are holding space to happen in our life. An example is when we struggle to wake up as soon as the alarm clock goes off. We then think of a lot of things, like the feeling or struggles we have to face. These things are vibrations of our belief system. It courses through our body and out into the things that we are doing, being and feeling into the all the spaces we go in to. Getting Started One of the things Jeremy Koester teaches in his course is diaphragmatic rhythmic breathing. He likes to pair it with his meditation practice which he learned from Emily Fletcher at www.zivameditation.com. He says it’s the closest thing to sleep breathing and to be able to get his nervous system reset. Jeremy Koester also says diet is a significant benefit to help this practice be more effective. If you can calm your nervous system and get your body into alpha waves, you will feel calm, present and centered and clear. Only then can you choose with intention about what you want to do. “It’s the vibration that’s reinforcing our nervous system.  We get the opportunity to look at things that are uniquely human such as feelings,” Jeremy Koester said. “Also, we have this opportunity to look at the fact that these things are our vibration. And that’s filling all of the things that are happening around us.” He adds, “This vibration is actual scientific energy. It is an authentic experience about ourselves, that are vibrating.” Rhythmic Breathing Rhythmic breathing pairs well for Jeremy Koester with meditation but not necessarily. It’s getting into a comfortable position where his back is supported. He advises being seated to have some grounding. Your feet have to be on the ground, the back is supported, and the head is free. Do what you want with your hands and close your eyes. “Simple nature of it is belly-breathing. A very specific belly-breathing in a gentle and relaxed state. Breathe through your diaphragm. Allow the stomach to pouch out. It’s an opportunity to be vulnerable and trusting,” said Jeremy Koester. Ideally, you should breathe in for 5, hold for one. Then breathe out for 5, hold for one. While doing that, relax your shoulders and head. Get your mind to be present to what your body is saying. The length of time to do this varies, but Jeremy Koester practices it for over 20 minutes.  How To Make A Change First of all, Jeremy Koester advises coming into observation of it. It is the beginning of all change. Because frequently, he says when we’re thinking about making those changes, we’re not in the middle of it. So, you have to learn gratitude. “Because if you feel depression, it’s a vibration that’s in your body. It’s a vibration that has a genesis. And if we look at it, all of it is something we have chosen in the past that has been brought to now,” said Jeremy Koester. “It’s looking a completion that I say is a vibration. And gratitude is that vibration. It’s a call for love is another way to look at it.” Jeremy Koester also suggests not to hide from it. But instead get present with it. At times it can be overwhelming but try to give as much gratitude as you can. You will gradually feel you have enough space within you to feel that vibration. Belief System When you have mastered the art of feeling your vibration, start looking at this automatic language which is the belief. The belief about yourself. And according to Jeremy Koester, the wording is specific. “When people say the word should, it is a projection of expectation. And ‘should’ has a place.  It’s the application of wisdom. There are dependencies where ‘should’ works,” said Jeremy Koester. He adds, “But when in projection, especially in beliefs and language that we have programmed in our neocortex that is a trigger based on the vibration and the feeling that comes up from our bodies, we have the opportunity to re-program those things.” Learn To Smile A smile is a powerful thing to do to both yourself and others. Because of this, Jeremy Koester tells people to smile until they are happy. He says it feels weird because it’s as if you’re choosing a behavior that is empathetical to the way your body feels. But it shifts your body. And your body will listen to your decision that you’re making. The actual choice of gratitude doesn’t have to be a vibration of gratitude. You can choose to say thank you or welcome. And you’ll start seeing that you can choose to dance while you’re not feeling good and then you start feeling good. That choice to no longer resist the irritation but to welcome it, is a natural choice you’re making. You make the time to sit and allow that feeling to be there. “You might still feel that frustration, but that’s okay. That’s the beauty of gratitude. It’s saying this feeling is okay,” Jeremy Koester said. “This is your opportunity to love yourself. And this is your opportunity to give this actual biological vibration the thing that it’s looking for which is a completion.” Negative Choices Negative choices are people having a neuro experience. Their nervous system has this thing where they are not catching what they’re doing. They are just reacting. Instead of pointing out what they did, acknowledge that they’re having an experience and try to find out what is going on. Try to find a way to support them on how to be kind when others are not showing that. You don’t have to choose to perpetuate that choice of being rude or mean. You can create a different experience. Getting into that practice of validating their emotions and getting into this space is seeking understanding of the other in that environment. Morning Rituals Jeremy Koester says he plans his morning rituals with blocks. And allow himself as much choice as he wants in his morning rituals. There are common ones which are non-negotiable wherever he is in the world. His diaphragmatic, rhythmic breathing paired with his meditation is a must-do. And he’s been doing it for two years now. Jeremy Koester also does different aspects of journaling. One is gratitude journaling, or doing The Artist’s Way morning pages which I got from the Artist’s Way Morning Pages Journal. It’s about getting the mind to be present, focused and to slow down. Jeremy Koester also has a lot of sounds that he incorporates into that space called ohming. To him, it’s about the vibration he makes. It’s about the power of the human voice. “If I can choose the way I feel, then my voice and the words that I say are the choices of the vibration that I put out in the environment,” said Jeremy Koester.

Vibe My Tribe Online According to Jeremy Koester, there are two applications of artificial intelligence. One is military, and the other one is advertising. Some bots are programs that are on the internet making fake profiles and selling things to people. So, he says the way of our future is this idea of authenticity that people can tell there’s a vibration of the human on the other side of things. Look at the concept of current marketing practices. We go in this space and ask these questions that often are predicated with bias because the person that’s asking is wanting to sell you something. “I help people launch an online community where the people that want to be a part of what they’re doing in the world gets you engaged on their level. And you get to set your framework of how you want to show up in the world,” said Jeremy Koester. He adds, “As my parting words of wisdom, keep going. Whatever it is or whatever you’re facing, don’t give up on yourself. There’s somebody out there who can support you.”  Bio Jeremy Koester‘s background as an educator and entertainer set the stage for the massive behavior change he’s created in his life. His accomplishments around his weight loss, the pursuit of mental health and living to one’s highest human potential inform his work as a community builder and his leadership of Resonant Sovereignty students in their personal growth. He co-creates new realities for humanity in our collective.  Born and raised in the foothills of LA into a mix of religion and mental health instability, Jeremy Koester joined the Air Force after high school. After moving to San Antonio, he taught middle and high school students. Three amazing kids later, his life was still defined by his hidden depression, workaholism and living out of integrity with what he truly believed in.  Knowing there was a rich, connected life of authenticity that he was disconnected from, he set out on a new path to right his direction and connect deeply with his intuition. Jeremy Koester redefined his belief systems and took responsibility for how he showed up in life. He made massive changes in his life, leveling up his career so he could make huge positive impacts in the world, losing over 100 pounds and keeping it off (for over six years now). He built a support group for reversing diabetes and obesity, actualizing his decade of field research into human connection, community and engagement.  Jeremy Koester’s Resonant Sovereignty coursework shares his lessons, practices, and insights for a bold and intuitive life well lived. Standing on the shoulders of giants, the latest bio-geometric epigenetics research and his success in behavior change, he offers an engaging, empowering and transformative experience.

320 Nourish: How to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Self, Non-Diet, Health-at-Every-Size Approach to Nutrition, Emotional Eating, Binging, Cravings, Self Talk, Food Addiction, Anorexia, Bu

http://anourishingword.com/ -- Blog, Book, and Practice information Nourish: How to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Self https://amzn.to/2CRegpr   Relationship with Food http://learntruehealth.com/relationship-with-food Our relationship with food goes hand in hand with our physical and emotional self. Some may say it is hard to get our diet choices on the right track. But honestly, our eating disorders or food cravings sometimes aren’t because we are hungry.  To explain how to heal our relationship with food, I have Dietician and Book Author Heidi Schauster in this episode. Eating Disorder Heidi Schauster didn’t have the best relationship with food when she was younger. She struggled with eating disorders during adolescence. And went through a recovery process that included some study of nutrition. Heidi Schauster decided to study nutrition in college because she was obsessed with food. However, she was also a strong science geek and was interested in physiology and anatomy. She thought she would go on to medical school, but Heidi Schauster didn’t like the lifestyle. So, she chose to pursue studying nutrition instead. Studying nutrition was helpful in Heidi Schauster’s recovery. “I was a ballet dancer, and I thought dieting was the norm. And that I needed to eat more food than I thought. Studying nutrition helped me relax a little bit more to understand how food was needed in my body and muscles. And I allowed myself to eat more,” said Heidi Schauster. Getting Inspired Heidi Schauster has been helping people deal with their relationship with food for 23 years now. It was a far cry from her teenage years when her relationship with food was so chaotic. Heidi Schauster almost had to relearn that sense of pleasure and enjoyment from food. As a culmination of her recovery work, it helped that she had experience watching kids enjoy food again when she worked at a children’s hospital in Boston. That inspired her to help people. Nourish: How to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Self Heidi Schauster wrote Nourish: How to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Self because she wanted to create a nutrition book that was not going to be triggering for someone who is recovering from an eating disorder. She wanted it to be something that was also accessible to people who don’t have an eating disorder but feel like their relationship with food was funky. “I don’t know how anyone can not have a funky relationship with food sometimes in this culture. There are so many things pointing us in the direction of using food to better ourselves,” Heidi Schauster said.  Heidi Schauster believes that when anyone today struggles with their relationship with food, there is fear involved.  For some, it’s bigger fears than others. Hence, reintroducing food is a very slow program wherein a trusting relationship must be developed first. “We’ve gotten so mind-driven over our food choices. And we think about what we should eat so much. As a result, we don’t drop into our bodies and ask what would be right for you right now and listen to that response,” explains Heidi Schauster.  She adds, “If someone is very out of touch with their body, and not used to inhabiting their body or making decisions on what to eat, it can feel foreign to trust again.”   Steps To A Well-Balanced Diet First of all, Heidi Schauster advises to let go of the diet mentality and sense of trying to fix the body through food. We must accept that our body is ideal. When you come from that place of body acceptance, then you tend to make different choices around eating. Your choices will tend to be healthier. Another way to get your diet on track is thorough diffusion. It is a behavioral technique where you listen to your thoughts and approach it as an observer. Then you decide how to behave. “It just gives you a little space to take care of yourself and your body. And doesn’t necessarily mean you must go on a diet,” Heidi Schauster said. Negative Thoughts According to Heidi Schauster, negative thoughts are a part of life, and they appear for a reason. And it’s nice to know why they are coming up. What happens over time is that people start to behave from a place of self-care when they have negative self-talk instead of reacting to those negative thoughts in a self-destructive way. “Negative thoughts can be little messengers telling us that something is not right in the system. Sometimes when we find ourselves scourging for food. It’s not because we are hungry. It’s because we need something and we can’t figure out what it is that we are needing,” explains Heidi Schauster.  She adds, “And so while food is here and it’s pleasurable, pause and slow down a little bit. You may find that there is something else beneath that compulsion that drives you to eat or starve.” Different from Drug Addiction Heidi Schauster believes that we can’t be addicted to food in the same way that we are addicted to other substances. We don’t have to have a relationship with heroin or alcohol to live. But we have to face nourishing ourselves with food several times a day. We can’t deny that highly palatable food has an addictive quality to it or psychologically dependent on it. “When people are eating enough and balanced way, food often comes into balance quite well,” said Heidi Schauster. “We can become much more addicted to food or driven to eat in an out of control way or coping way when we’re not eating well on a regular basis. There are psychological and emotional reasons.”  She adds, “Our work ethics sometimes is why people don’t eat well throughout the day. Our bodies end up starving at the end of the day. Food activates all of the senses, but it’s not the same as being addicted to drugs.”  Getting Back On Track Heidi Schauster says getting back to a more embodied way of eating takes practice. It can mean getting reacquainted with your hunger and fullness cues. Some of it is also exploring what might be going on underneath. Ultimately, it takes work to figure out what is the eating style that serves you and your life the best. And eating styles are different because our bodies are different. Our bodies are unique, and everybody’s journey is different. If you want to get back on track, it may help to ask yourself these questions: What is going on with my body at these different points during the day? What sensations do I have around hunger or fullness? What are my unique habits around food that feel good and ones that don’t feel good? Why can’t I stop doing them? If somebody is not used to making choices about food from an embodied place that connects to your body, hunger and fullness can be elusive. That’s why Heidi Schauster advises people to close their eyes, take a deep breath, get into your body and ask on a scale of 0 to 10, where are your hunger and fullness. It’s all about pausing or checking in regularly. Ask what is it that you need at any given moment. See if your need for connection is not being met and figure out how can you meet that need. It’s something you have to do for myself. Internal Family Systems Heidi Schauster says there’ s a branch of psychotherapy called Internal Family Systems. It is useful in identifying those parts that are there to protect us. And they have a purpose. A lot of Heidi Schauster’s clients have benefited from this method of healing their relationship with food. “It recognizes that we live in all of us like a family of parts. Some of those parts are younger than others. But they are all trying to help regulate and stay together in this world,” Heidi Schauster said.  She adds, “Some of those parts are protectors. And some of those parts are managers. Plus, they might be doing something in this world that we don’t like. Like the part of us bingeing or inner outbursts. If we can understand that, we can build compassion within ourselves for ourselves.”  The Right Diet According to Heidi Schauster, the field of nutrition is a young field and always evolving. That’s partly why we feel we are contradicting ourselves. Because science is always evolving and changing over time, adding to the complexity of the situation, there are always studies that come out and get interpreted a certain way. “I try not to create judgment around anybody’s food preferences and desires. But rather allow them to explore what makes them feel good and what doesn’t,” said Heidi Schauster. “It’s about connecting to yourself and being able to make those choices. And it gets back to mindfulness. It’s about dropping into the present moment.” A Nourishing World To get more information on how to improve your relationship with food or get a copy of Heidi Schauster’s latest book, do check out her website because there’s such a wealth of information there. “We are all worthy of care and love, compassion and nurturing. We all deserve to have our needs met. And there is not one that can do that better than ourselves,” said Heidi Schauster. Heidi Schauster is a nutrition therapist with over 20 years of experience in the field of disordered eating. She is a writer, consultant, and certified eating disorders registered dietitian and supervisor, based in the Greater Boston area. She is also the author of Nourish: How to Heal Your Relationship with Food, Body, and Self.  Heidi Schauster completed her dietetic internship and Master’s degree at Tufts University and began her career at Children’s Hospital, Boston. After completing an Adolescent Fellowship at Children’s Hospital, she worked as Clinical Dietitian Specialist for Inpatient Psychiatry and the Outpatient Adolescent Clinic. Since 1999, she has maintained a full-time private practice. She is the founder of Nourishing Words Nutrition Therapy in the Greater Boston area. In addition to counseling, Heidi Schauster consulted with schools, universities, and professional groups, and lectured widely on the topic of disordered eating. Heidi Schauster also provides individual and group clinical supervision for my colleagues in the nutrition field who work with disordered eating. She is a Faculty Member at Plymouth State University in their graduate level Eating Disorders Institute. Heidi Schauster teaches nutrition education and counseling course that is part of a unique training program for professionals in the health and mental health fields who want to obtain special training in eating disorders.  Get Connected With Heidi Schauster!

319 Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future, The Power of Self-Awareness Through Journaling, Letter Writing, Self-Reflection, Boundaries, Self Help, Personal Growth and Development Author Jea

Sign up for Ashley's January Health Transformation Live Workshop: http://learntruehealth.com/yes Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future Book https://amzn.to/2LRM8pe https://loreandlittlethings.com http://www.jeanetteschneider.com   Lore http://learntruehealth.com/Lore Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is a unique book. It teaches you how to dig into your past and create a new and better version of yourself. Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is about the power of self-awareness, letter writing, and self-reflection. To tell us more about how Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future came to be, Personal Growth and Development Author Jeanette Schneider is here to talk about it in this episode. Becoming a Mother Jeanette Schneider shares that the inspiration behind writing her book, Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is her daughter. She was inspired when she became the mother of a little girl. Jeanette Schneider’s daughter Olivia was born in 2011. And having worked in a male-dominated industry, her daughter opened her eyes to reflect on her relationships and the course of her life. “I was raised in a very patriarchal society, family and religion and moved to work in a male-dominated field. So was brought into the mindset that women by design are inferior to men,” said Jeanette Schneider. Self-Discovery So, Jeanette Schneider started down the road of self-discovery. She wanted to understand how to advocate for women and girls in the workplace. Shortly after, Jeanette Schneider stumbled on an accidental project wherein she invited successful and amazing women to share their stories. They challenged her to do the same, by uncovering the story of her beginning. “I wrote a letter to my younger self which was part of this project. The first sentence was, you will spend most of your life believing you are unlovable,” Jeanette Schneider said.  She adds, “I had to go back to my past to find out what message I received throughout my life that made me believe that way. And why I felt so strongly about helping women and girls.”  Realizations Jeanette Schneider recognized from a very young age of five that her mother was an alcoholic and an addict. She never said it, but her actions made Jeanette Schneider feel that she wasn’t as worthy of love as others.  “You don’t realize through the course of your life how all of these messages and belief systems are infused within the DNA of who you are as a person,” Jeanette Schneider said. “And because of the conversations I had with my mother, I would show up in the world believing I didn’t belong there. It created some trouble for me in every aspect of my life.” Meaning Of Lore According to Jeanette Schneider, the word “lore” is an old word. It’s the folklore of your life. For Jeanette Schneider, it was looking back on the folklore and all the stories she believed about herself and all the things in her life. She stresses that it had her daughter that made her think of who she was when she was a little girl. And what she needed to do to unhinge herself so that she could be the best person to guide her daughter. Touching Base With The Past Jeanette Schneider firmly believes in the power of visualization. She thinks we are too caught up in our minds. So, we have to sit back for a minute, close our eyes and envision a younger version of ourselves. Get your younger self clear in your mind, and he or she will naturally come to you. “Pick out what does she look like, what are the expressions on her face, what is her stance and where is she,” suggests Jeanette Schneider. “Once you get clear on what she looks like, and the word that comes to mind as you’re looking at her, ask her what she needs from you. And a lot of times, that’s the big message.”  For Jeanette Schneider, she had this poor, little, dejected girl looking at her at five years old saying she just wanted to be loved. She wants to be protected. “And I think with everyone’s visualization process, it starts to unlock little unconscious memories and beliefs. We need to almost re-parent ourselves in these moments,” said Jeanette Schneider.  A New You It’s been quite a journey for Jeanette Schneider. Recognizing she had this belief system is a sobering moment. She started to realize precisely what situations made her believe that she was unlovable and that was quite a journey. “Since I wrote the letter, I completely restructured the way I entered friendships and relationships,” Jeanette Schneider said. “I got very purposeful, and I finally know my value because I had to go back and unwind all of the old and rewrite it.” Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future Jeanette Schneider initially started her advocacy wanting to help women. But she says her book, Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is appropriate for both men and women.  A lot of men have told her that her book helped them as well. “The book puts you like almost in a workshop, and there are five sections. The first section is the past. And that’s uncovering all the old belief systems. At the end of each chapter there is something called do the work,” explains Jeanette Schneider.  She adds, “I suggest people read it without a journal at hand. So, they can answer the questions in the Do the Work section. It will help you pull things out of you and ask yourself some profound questions. And I even suggest the act of free writing.”  The second section of Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is about moving to active choice orientation and how we are the choices that we’ve made for better or for worse. Jeanette Schneider says it’s walking with that victim mentality and blame mentality. It encourages you to make an active role in the choices you are making. The third part of Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is manifesting the future. We also tap into our future or higher self. Start a relationship and conversation with the future you. “Understand what it is we need to do now. It may be forgiving ourselves, to move things along,” said Jeanette Schneider. The fourth part of the book is talking about your teacher. Jeanette Schneider says it’s so important to create our own purposeful messaging. “It’s important for us to structure our friendships. And also help our children structure their friendships, their self-talk, and knowledge of who they are as individuals and their boundary making abilities as well,” Jeanette Schneider said.  She adds, “A lot of times we don’t give children the ability to make their boundaries. So, they walk into poor relationship choices as they get older and not knowing how to advocate for themselves.” Last part of Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future has a workshop feel. It is about pulling the old stuff out. And getting clear on what the new you looks like and aspires to be. Jeanette Schneider says it is about how you can allow that new version of yourself to influence either your children or people around you. Key Things To Remember Jeanette Schneider says self-development, learning to develop stronger boundaries and creating a new paradigm for yourself also requires hard work. And the shifting of relationships as well. So even if it painful, it has to be done. “The best thing that happened to me is self-awareness. And that is understanding how I react in situations and recognizing that a lot of times things had nothing to do with me. Most fights happened because you triggered someone else or the language that you used,” said Jeanette Schneider. How To Get Started First, Jeanette Schneider suggests going back to your visualization and always start there. Start with the younger version of yourself because you get very pure. Every time we look back, we change our time. When we look at our younger self, we take on a very nurturing tone. You are going to find your stance soften. Some of the questions you can ask yourself are: What are you most proud of? What is your greatest accomplishment? What was your biggest lesson, and have you gotten far enough away from it? What was your most humbling experience? What were you missing as a child? Who do you need to forgive and is that person you? Then Jeanette Schneider advises looking at that future version of yourself. Ask what do the people who surround you look like? Who surrounds them? What are the characteristics of the people that surround you? “Look at the relationships, characteristics, and values of those relationships. It understands the tribe of people who are surrounding the future version of yourself. In that visualization, there might be some clean up you might need to do,” said Jeanette Schneider.  She adds, “The past is there to teach you. And if you feel resistance, lean into it. Those messages and things will show up in other ways. It will show up in future relationships. When you feel the tears start to come or start to close your mind, that’s where you lean deeper into who you are because the other side is so much more blissful.”  Bio Jeanette Schneider is the founder of Lore Advocacy, a network of professional women whose goal is to inspire women to change the world through a gender lens of equality, self-actualization and the fearless shattering of glass ceilings.  Jeanette Schneider stated Lore and Little Things (https://loreandlittlethings.com/) in 2015 as a platform catering to women who want to be part of a conversation that is positive, present and offers no advice other than trust yourself and harm no one. Her debut book, Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is to be released in September 2018.  Jeanette Schneider has brought her empowering lectures and workshops to The Influencer Academy, The Women’s Leadership Conference at MGM, Alturas Institute, KaiaFIT, Bank of America, Girls for Progress and more. Her debut book, Lore: Harnessing Your Past to Create Your Future is to be released in September 2018.  In addition to her work in women’s equality, Jeanette Schneider is a Senior Vice President in the financial services industry. She serves on the boards of Spread the Word Nevada, the President’s Advisory Council for The Smith Center for the Performing Arts and The Alturas Institute.  In 2015, Jeanette Schneider was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Women’s Chamber of Commerce in Nevada and was selected as a Vegas, Inc. “Woman to Watch” in 2016.  Jeanette Schneider is the proud mother of Olivia, age 7, and in her spare time enjoys travel, yoga and charity work.

318 Stress and The Inner Critic, Overwhelm, Insomnia, Brain Fog, Digestive Issues, Adrenal Fatigue, Cortisol, Autoimmune Disease, Inflammation, Cancer, Anxiety, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger

Transform your inner critic into your best friend https://puravidahealthcare.com/blog Sign up for Ashley's January Health Transformation Live Workshop: http://learntruehealth.com/yes   Decreasing Stress http://learntruehealth.com/decreasing-stress Decreasing stress and listening to your inner critic plays a significant role in our overall well-being. Once we master ways of decreasing stress and listening to our inner critic, this self-awareness can help us cope with the demands and stress from outside factors. To explain the ways of decreasing stress and listening to your inner critic, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger will dive into that in this episode. Early Years Dr. Nicola Dehlinger first learned about Sigmund Freud when she was in elementary school. She was turned on by his concept regarding analyzing dreams and helping people feel better. When Dr. Nicola Dehlinger reached high school, her interest turned to psychiatry. But doing pre-med in college, she hated it. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger had a hard time connecting with pre-med colleagues. Defining Moment Studying about U.S. health care systems, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger who was then 19 years old, was dissatisfied. She wondered what to do especially since she was almost done with pre-med. One year when she was back at home for winter break, the mom of one of Dr. Nicola Dehlinger’s friends suggested that she talk to her doctor.  That doctor happened to be a Naturopathic Doctor, and a very popular one, too. “As things evolved for me during medical school, I was drawn to mind-body medicine. I wanted to help put back together the relationships between our emotions, mental well-being, and physical health,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. Self-Discovery Dr. Nicola Dehlinger’s first job was at an HIV wellness clinic. Because she speaks Spanish, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger was hired as a medical assistant and worked with a lot of therapists. “I got to hone my skill set around integrating Naturopathic Medicine and physical health with this mental health component,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. “I did it for three years and moved to Colorado in 2006 to help co-found a wilderness therapy organization called Open Sky.” Personal Journey Life outside looked great, but Dr. Nicola Dehlinger soon realized she wasn’t happy. She was in an emotionally abusive marriage and decided to work on herself by decreasing stress. “Through my process of traditional therapy, mind bodywork with my mentor, I started cultivating a relationship with myself,” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger said. “That relationship with myself was what enabled me to get out of a job that was tearing me apart on a personal level. And get out of relationships that weren’t supportive to me on any level.”  Soon after, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger eventually opened a private practice and made time to sit with patients. It was then that she realized that her patients had the key to their healing and decreasing stress. “My job got easy. Just by listening to people more deeply, I started realizing how much wisdom each of us brings to the table but that we don’t see. Because we’ve been told that we don’t know the answers,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger also realized that the more she can help people come back into themselves and decreasing stress, the fewer symptoms they have. This way, they can enjoy more health and vitality in their life. “The number one expert on your health and well-being will always be you. And sometimes it’s nice to have a guide. Because we don’t necessarily know which way to go,” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger said. “The body is divinely wise. When you have symptoms, that is the body expressing dis-ease in somewhere in the body.”  Understanding Stress In our culture, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says we don’t get praised for acknowledging stress. Career expectancy is higher. And the pace in which we communicate now between text and social media, we are expected to process about a thousand times more pieces of information in a day than we were 20 or 25 years ago. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger also mentions that with regards to technology, there is a physiological stressor of receiving information. She believes we are running ourselves down in small increments. “When we start normalizing a collective experience, all of a sudden, nobody is talking about it anymore. It’s interesting how we don’t see it and don’t equate it.” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger said. Common Denominators Dr. Nicola Dehlinger observed that most people would identify with the feeling of overwhelm when it comes to stress. Another symptom is sharpness regarding being cognitive. On the other hand, some people have issues with insomnia. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says peeing in the night is an indicator of sleep quality unless it is a prostate issue. Having a hard time getting out of bed, digestive changes and constipation can also be stress factors. “Part of that is because we don’t have enough energy to wake up early enough to have morning routines like five minutes of stretching, a glass of lemon water before coffee and a breakfast that you sit down and chew,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger also says we have to think about all of the physiological components that the sympathetic nervous system does for us to fight or flee. We were designed to be in that fight or flight around 10% of the time. And physiologically, it has a significant impact on blood sugar metabolism, cholesterol, and blood flow. But the good news is, we can reverse all of this. “Adverse childhood events affect. Around two adverse events pose a risk of increase of disease, disability and even premature death by ten years,” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger said. “If more than four adverse events occurred, one is more likely to have a dangerous lifestyle like smoking, attempted suicide, alcoholic or using IV drugs when they become adults.”  She adds, “Our tendency to be in abusive relationships, to becoming obese, having heart and lung disease and liver disease have a higher risk of depression and overall lower health and vitality. Once we realize their early experiences could determine chronic disease as an adult in childhood, then we can start working on that.” Emotional And Mental Effects The moment when Dr. Nicola Dehlinger addresses the history of abuse or trauma of the patient and start exploring that, she helps people safely tell their story. If there’s nobody to help us integrate that experience, it becomes a glitch in our system. “We start tripping over that disintegrated experience and form a solid memory. Then when we are triggered to remember that event, we can’t integrate that experience,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. “All of a sudden, all these other experiences we have in an adult body or adult experience, it pulls on a string. And the whole system gets reactivated.”  Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says what she can do is help someone be more present by assisting them to acknowledge that it was impactful to them. She says we can’t change our paths, but we can change how we can relate to it by bringing it out of the closet and into the light.  Emotional vs. Physical Health Dr. Nicola Dehlinger believes emotion and physical health are very related. She says we don’t value rest. But it’s not about sleep, but instead, it’s about the lack of doing something while awake. “When there is an energetic shift in the body, it creates a chemical shift, and that creates a psychological shift. We have to let go of this idea that our mental body isn’t affecting our physiology,” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger explains. Ways in Decreasing Stress It’s okay if you don’t have much time to devote to yoga or meditation practice. But if you have five minutes and you can use an app or follow the inhale and exhale of your breath, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says you can change how your genes express themselves. “It creates a mitochondrial resilience. Because some cellular prophecies get stabilized to the adaptation of oxidated stress. And that, in turn, enhances cell survival and cell function. The more we practice, the more of these mitochondrial-positive changes we see occur,” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger said. According to Dr. Nicola Dehlinger, these are the core cellular changes that are creating a broad base of shifting. And that’s how the mind-body affects doing something like relaxation. When we have better molecular resilience, we will see more physiological medical, psychiatric resistance. “For the body to be able to receive food, we have to be more in that parasympathetic states. Take three deep breaths before starting a meal. Put your fork down between bites. These are mindful practices,” recommends Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says people realize that when you stop and don’t push through, you come back to your task infinitely more refreshed. She also says that the reason high school classes and therapy sessions are 50 minutes long, is because every hour, our brain wants to do something new. “It doesn’t have to be something big. This is how we start the process of disconnecting. We don’t respond to our body when it’s thirsty, hungry or needs to use the bathroom,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. Physiological Benefits Of Decreasing Stress Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says cortisol has a significant impact in decreasing stress. Because it has two main roles in the body. One is to manage stress, and the other is to manage inflammation. “Our body is going to give the cortisol down that stress management pathway preferentially. And we won’t have as much cortisol dedicated to the management of inflammation,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger.  She adds, “Inflammation is a huge part of our repair system in our body. Where we can get trouble is when that repair system never gets shut off. It can lead to another disease state like Parkinson’s, irritable bowel syndrome or cardiovascular disease. It is also important to look at what you are eating. You may be sensitive to food that is creating more inflammation in your system as a whole.” Jumpstart To Decreasing Stress First, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger advises to jot down a list of 5 to 10 symptoms. Then get quality sleep, have clarity of mind, proper digestion, mood patterns. “There is also a huge spectrum of adrenal fatigue where when we first start getting adrenal burnout, it feels good. The next stage is where we are feeling wired and tired. We’re starting to feel the effect of the stimulation. And our body will then start to be resistant to all the stress,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. In the end, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says the cortisol will drop. Everything in our body gets low like anxiety, depression, irritability. “Recognize that this is a long process. Give yourself a one out of ten rating daily at the end of every day to track what you do. Let your body time to get 80 to 90% healed,” said Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. Inner Critic Dr. Nicola Dehlinger is running a 5-month program, “Becoming Your Own Best Friend: A Five Month Program to Tame your Inner Critic, Let Go of Self-Judgment, and Lift Depression to Create an Inspired, Joyful Life!” It is a web-based program designed to help all of us quit beating ourselves up and find more compassion for ourselves. “We spend so much time and energy shutting out our inner voice. And we run, hide, or push against it. The inner critic is that part of the brain that lights up when we make a mistake to that we remember it and not make a mistake again,” Dr. Nicola Dehlinger said. The inner-critic will show our mistakes to us a lot of times. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger says it’s a self-protective mechanism that helps you to learn and grow from past mistakes or experiences. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger further explains that the inner critic thinks that he or she is the only one driving the bus. It has to hammer the message into the ground because nobody is listening. And nobody is actually in communication nor a relationship to this part of ourselves. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger believes it’s time to face this part of ourselves that we think is mean and cruel. And we can come back to our natural state of being which is the state of self-awesomeness. “Start getting in touch with yourself in a way that you’re understanding what’s driving the stress and what’s driving you the pressure that you’re putting on yourself to do what you’re doing. Become aware there’s a problem,” advises Dr. Nicola Dehlinger. She adds, “Then let yourself feel into whatever that thing is. it will inherently shift how you are relating to whatever is stressing you out, and you’re probably could be inspired by the way you could do it differently.”  Bio Dr. Nicola Dehlinger received her B.A. in International Health from Brown University in 1997, graduating with honors. During college, she ran her first peer education groups for at-risk adolescents. In her undergraduate and post-graduate years, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger did extensive international travel looking at various psycho-social factors which affect personal health and healthcare delivery.  Dr. Nicola Dehlinger also learned from local traditional healers about the impact of the community on individual health. Before moving from Boston to Phoenix, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger was certified as a Reiki Master/Teacher in the traditional Usui system of Reiki, a Japanese healing art. Between travel expeditions, she did case management and client advocacy for people living with mental health, HIV, and addiction issues.  Dr. Nicola Dehlinger graduated from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona in 2004. In addition to the standard curriculum, she took classes in craniosacral therapy at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.  During medical school, she served as a Naturopathic Medical Assistant at an HIV wellness organization (Body Positive) in Phoenix, AZ. She also worked at a domestic violence shelter providing support to women and their children. After completing medical school, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger maintained a private practice in a yoga studio. She also worked with patients at Body Positive where she utilized her Spanish fluency working with the Latino community.  In 2006, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger moved to Durango, CO to co-found Open Sky, a wilderness therapy program for young adults and adolescents coping with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, disordered eating, substance abuse, failure to launch, and others. In her role as Wellness Director, she was the first to integrate naturopathic medicine into wilderness therapy and set a new standard of care for health and nutrition practices in therapeutic programs across the country.  Dr. Nicola Dehlinger created a weekend designed to expose parents to wellness practices and learn how to incorporate them into their already full lives effectively. It was working at Open Sky that rekindled her interest in mental health-related issues and brought her back to the principle of actively connecting the mind and body as the key to healing.  Today, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger sees clients in her naturopathic medical practice in Durango. Her focus is working with clients on mental health issues – from insomnia to anxiety to eating problems. She also enjoys working with people who are interested in enhancing their life by optimizing their health. Dr. Nicola Dehlinger welcomes all patients, regardless of age or ailment, who are willing to invest in themselves. Raised and educated on the East Coast, Dr. Nicola Dehlinger relocated in 2000 and fell in love with the openness of the Southwest. It was in this part of the country that she learned how to rock climb and strengthened her passion for hiking, camping, and yoga.  In her free time, if you can’t find her in the mountains, you will see her in the garden or the kitchen with her son.

317 Healthiest Forms of Birth Control and How To Balance Hormones at Any Age Without Hormone-Replacement, Detoxing Unhealthy Hormones, Estrogen Dominance, Progesterone, Amenorrhea, Hysterectomy, Menop

Feminology: the art and science of female hormones www.feminology.org  Dr. Nash's Pill Damage Guide: https://feminology.lpages.co/your-birth-control-may-be-making-you-sick Sign up for Ashley's January Health Transformation Live Workshop: http://learntruehealth.com/yes   Natural Hormonal Balance http://learntruehealth.com/natural-hormonal-balance Natural hormonal balance without hormone-replacement is possible and something every woman needs to know. It is vital for women because it helps us regulate our period, deal with menopause and helps us deal with reproductive issues better. To explain how we could have natural hormonal balance, Naturopath Dr. Ginger Nash dives into that in this episode. Backstory Dr. Ginger Nash’s journey of being interested in ways of attaining natural hormonal balance started in the 90s in Portland Oregon. She studied in a school called National College of Naturopathic Medicine back in the day. Now the school is called the National University of Natural Medicine. “My journey to Naturopathic Medicine started with a background in the history of medicine. When you go to Naturopathic Medical school, you have trials you have to get through. It’s not the easiest profession to make a success of,” said Dr. Ginger Nash. But Dr. Ginger Nash also reveals that she didn’t have that insecurity that a lot of other people struggled with. She was always interested in issues around women’s health even when she was studying history. That eventually led to her current focus on teaching women how to achieve natural hormonal balance. “So, I came to the profession with such deep respect for the mysteries of the body and the complexity of the body. And I think that works well for a Naturopathic philosophy,” said Dr. Ginger Nash.  Personal Health Issues Dr. Ginger Nash had major abdominal surgery back in the 90s when she was a graduate student and didn’t have health insurance. She had a 30-centimeter ovarian cyst destroying her ovary and fallopian tube and had irregular cycles. It was apparent that she didn’t have any idea of how important it was to have a natural hormonal balance. “I was taking oral contraceptives for six or seven years and came off a year before this crisis erupted. The day I was released from the hospital when I was 25 years old, I had an epiphany,” Dr. Ginger Nash said.  She adds, “I decided I wanted to go to Naturopathic medical school and learned what a Naturopath was because of my job as a research assistant.  That’s why I wanted to be a doctor. So, I applied right away and threw myself into the study of medicine. It was a radical shift.”   Career Challenges Naturopathic Doctors are still struggling to get a Federal law to be legitimized in larger institutionalized circles. But Dr. Ginger Nash says the beauty of what they do is that so many people in the grassroots level want this type of approach to their health. “Naturopathic doctors are important in really helping people with complex issues that involve various parts of the body and various organ systems. There are so many different aspects to the way we can work with somebody,” said Dr. Ginger Nash.  She believes that one should see a Naturopath if you have a chronic disease and you have to keep taking drugs to manage symptoms. Dr. Ginger Nash says the solution would be to get to the root cause causing the chronic disease process. As for diet, she says there are a lot of tweaks they can make nutritionally which has tremendous benefits on a person’s health.  Lymph System The lymph system is the waste system of the body. Dr. Ginger Nash says we all have this tremendous exposure to the thousands of chemicals that comes to our environment daily. And research shows the lymph system has to work adequately for us to eliminate toxins. “It is the lymph system that picks up the toxins after they exit the cell and move it around the body. Ultimately, you don’t want to get it stuck in other parts of the body but rather dump it into the gut so that you can eliminate it,” said Dr. Ginger Nash. There’s a lot of issues with lymphatic health. Dr. Ginger Nash says if you have a chronic infection, your lymph will slow down and become sluggish because of that. This is because the lymphatic system plays a huge role in our immune system and the body’s ability to eliminate waste products. “It moves all the white blood cells around the body. And acts like the scavenger for some pre-cancerous cells,” said Dr. Ginger Nash. “The lymphatic system also plays a role in our hormone system because the minute amounts of hormones that are moved around the body to target tissues are extraordinarily important.”  She adds, “Most women these days are progesterone-deficient. And the lymphatic fluid attracts progesterone more readily. So even if you have adequate progesterone, you might not be moving it around the body well enough. But if you have low progesterone, your lymphatic system can help balance your hormones indirectly as well.”  Progesterone-deficient Dr. Ginger Nash reveals that many women are progesterone-deficient and that hampers natural hormonal balance. Because chemicals in the environment play a big factor. A lot of plastics, toxins, and chemicals mimic the effects of estrogen in our bodies. “It’s not a true progesterone-deficiency, but you get relatively higher estrogen levels or estrogen activity. Many women also do not have proper ovulation cycles each month. If you are taking any synthetic hormones or contraceptives, you are suppressing that ovulatory function and your body’s natural production of progesterone,” said Dr. Ginger Nash. Importance of Progesterone Progesterone is essential to balance out the effects of estrogen. Dr. Ginger Nash says estrogen, on the other hand, is a growth hormone and it creates cell turnover. It’s an excitatory hormone for the brain. So, you can have a lot of anxiety and stress. Dr. Ginger Nash further explains that progesterone has a calming effect in the brain. It also has a bone-building effect. While it has a little impact on your libido, it affects the whole symphony of the female lunar cycle or monthly cycle. “If you’re suppressing that natural monthly rhythm, you are suppressing your relationship with yourself in a very deep way. Although these hormonal fluctuations can make us feel out of balance and off-kilter, it does connect us with our bodies in a very deep way,” said Dr. Ginger Nash. Dr. Ginger Nash likewise shares that synthetic drugs deplete b12 and folic acid. That’s why for women who are taking the pill, they should be taking certain B vitamins that are depleted by the use of the pill. “That can make your cervix more susceptible to cervical cancer. There’s absolutely a connection between oral contraceptives and synthetic hormones on a woman’s mental health,” Dr. Ginger Nash said.  Barrier Method Vs. Natural Methods When you’re taking the pill, you’re not protecting yourself from sexually-transmitted diseases. So, Dr. Ginger Nash stressed the importance of using condoms or a cervical cap. Cervical caps now come in silicone. And you can get fitted for those, or you can get a prescription. It gets fixed right over the cervix, and you can use it with or without spermicide. “For those of you who had abdominal surgery or have lost an ovary, don’t be concerned because ovarian cysts are so common. There’s very little change in fertility rate even if you have one ovary,” Dr. Ginger Nash said. Dr. Ginger Nash also says women at menopause are now being put on the pill. Because so many women are afraid of hormone replacement therapy for a good reason. That’s why Dr. Ginger Nash makes extra effort to educate women. There are options and other ways of achieving natural hormonal balance besides just suppressing your natural rhythm. “You have to find out what the cause of the heavy flow is. Is it fibroids? Or is it estrogen dominance? Curcumin is effective for heavy bleeding. Check your diet also. Ultimately, you shouldn’t be debilitated with your monthly period,” advises Dr. Ginger Nash. Dr. Ginger Nash also clarifies that some women may need bio-identical hormone replacement. But that should eventually be weaned off because she believes that women aren’t meant to have these levels of hormones into an advanced stage. “Any rapid change in hormone levels is going to produce temperature dysregulation issues potentially. Sometimes when you are estrogen dominant or when you have a big jump in your estrogen levels, you can also get hot flashes when your estrogen goes up,” Dr. Ginger Nash reveals.  She also adds that sometimes, irregular sleep patterns might be the reason for a woman’s cycle to be off. The same goes for those who exercise compulsively. Menopause Program Dr. Ginger Nash has an excellent program for women. Feminology is the art and science of female hormones. It aims to help women better understand themselves and the working of their bodies, especially the subtle orchestra of our hormones. The program is focused on primary hormone balancing and repairing damage caused by hormonal contraceptives. It is combined with cleanses like a post-holiday cleanse in January, spring cleanses in spring, and a fall cleanses in October. Dr. Ginger Nash deemed it best to launch her menopause program around those cleanses, so women can start with a 10-day food-based cleanse. This way, they get to dive deep on what’s the best diet for them regarding hormone balancing. After doing the basic three modules, women get to focus on what’s possible for them at menopause. Dr. Ginger Nash loves to call menopause the age of wisdom and strength. Because she thinks women at this age learned a thing or two about themselves. And hopefully throughout their lives. “When they are ready to face a new life stage, hopefully with some empowerment and support through the program, they can figure out what they want and what is going to make them feel the best,” Dr. Ginger Nash said.  She adds, “It’s never too late to make a little step in the right direction for your health. If you had a lifetime of bad habits, food issues, and food hang-ups, it is never too late to take steps to ensure great health, longevity and enjoy the quality of your life.”  Bio Dr. Ginger Nash graduated from The National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1998 and her 20 years of clinical practice has worked with thousands of women on natural hormonal balance without the use of hormone replacement. Complex homeopathy, herbal medicine, and nutrigenomics are the therapeutic cornerstones of her practice.  Dr. Ginger Nash taught at the University of Bridgeport’s College of Naturopathic Medicine clinic for six years and had taught seminars for other healthcare professionals throughout the U.S. and Canada for over a dozen years. She is a sought-after speaker and has recently launched online health programs for women through her umbrella organization called “Feminology: The Art and Science of Female Hormones” with her colleague Dr. Tara Nayak. These doctors interweave the scientific knowledge behind natural medicine and the art of helping women heal. Get Connected With Dr. Ginger Nash!

Primarily the drainage support is what changes everything,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “When we’re looking at drainage and how to repair the body, you want to look at what are all the drainage pathways.” Dr. Jay Davidson says that ideally, two or more bowel movements a day is needed to heal the body. Because when you start moving into supporting the immune system, going after pathogens, detoxing and pulling the chemicals out, it’s a lot easier for those pathways to get clogged up. As soon as those pathways get clogged up, that’s when symptoms happen. “Phase one we look at supporting the intestinal tract, liver bile duct, and kidneys. If the colon backs up, it backs everything up. If the liver bile duct is backed up, then it backs up what’s above that,” Dr. Jay Davidson explains. “What’s above that is the lymphatic system, and then we look at organs and tissues. And one of the important organs is the brain.” Listening To Symptoms I have always stressed in past episodes that it is vital to listen to our body. Symptoms are there to give clues on what is going in. Dr. Jay Davidson says that for example, headaches, brain fog, cognitive type issues, and insomnia can signify that something is amiss.  “We know there’s usually something backed up in the chain of drainage. Whether it’s the colon, liver bile duct, lymphatic system or all of the above for it to clog up,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.  He adds, “The liver bile duct is one of the most important that I see what holds people back from getting well clinically. And the more attention you give to the liver bile duct, the better off we’re going to be.”  BioActive Carbon Products Dr. Jay Davidson mentioned that a product in phase one is BioActive Carbon Foundation. It is there to support quite a bit of thing. The BioActive Carbon always get their attention for binding. But more importantly, the BioActive Carbons help to give carbon and hydrogen to the body and oxygen as well. “So, if you look at how the body is made, 96% is carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Under 4% is minerals,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “The BioActive Carbon is giving the base bone of our body support. It is also doing other things like binding and detoxing the pathways.” Activated Charcoal If we go out and buy activated charcoal or an activated carbon charcoal type supplement, Dr. Jay Davidson says it could come from a lot of different sources. Incidentally, activated charcoal is a long chain carbon and there are different chains of carbon. “In the BioActive Carbon, we have small, medium and long. The long sit inside the GI tract. So, the liver processes toxins.  Phase one and phase two detox is how it processes chemicals. Phase 3 is drainage,” Dr. Jay Davidson explains.  He adds, “The healthy way is that these by-products then get dumped into the bile. Bile holds on to toxins and pathogens live in there as well. It causes stagnation and causes things to get thick and affects our GI.” BioActive Carbon Iodine When bile is recycled, Dr. Jay Davidson says it will bring along that by-product of the chemicals and toxins with it. Activated charcoal has been known to help bind on to the bile. It is a long chain carbon. When activated charcoal binds on to the bile, the body then eliminates it through the feces. “We utilize BioActive Carbons in many instances. And we modify the molecule based on what the needs are,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “Bioactive Carbon Iodine is a new product of ours, designed to bind on to bad halogens like chlorine or bromine specifically. It grabs on to those halogens that typically displace iodine.” Dr. Jay Davidson also explains that if you take a lot of iodine, it can cause a thyroid storm. Because the iodine will turn the thyroid on. It’s needed to heal the thyroid. But if you have strong autoimmunity, you want to balance the minerals out. Understanding Mitochondria A lot of people do not know how mitochondria affect our overall health. Dr. Jay Davidson says mitochondria has been talked about a lot. But it’s rare to find stuff that works to open that up. “When you look at mitochondria, they produce ATP in the cells. And when the mitochondria are blown out, we don’t get the cellular energy,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.  He adds, “Until we get the cellular energy up above where the chronic infection and toxicity is, we’re not going to re-establish that. As soon as you stop detoxing, it’s going to start creeping back up. You have to re-establish cellular energy, so you don’t have to take stuff forever.” Biomolecular Oxygen According to Dr. Jay Davidson, biomolecular oxygen is stabilized oxygen. Dr. Jay Davidson has been using it whenever he does coffee enemas once a week. “I put a tablespoon of molasses in there to hold it in easier. Then I add the BioActive Carbon minerals and biomolecular oxygen. Ten drops of each. You can nebulize it if you have lung issues,” suggests Dr. Jay Davidson. Fulvic Acid Dr. Jay Davidson also claims that his team has been able to stabilize the oxygen inside the fulvic acid or extracts of the fulvic acid molecule. So, not only is it delivered in the body, but it also sustains. “Another thing you can look at is perfusion index percentage. It is a better marker to look at overall health. That’s the health of your arteries and the ability for the blood to penetrate the tissues and get absorbed,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.  He adds, “If a protocol will help those who are chronically ill, a protocol also takes your health to a whole new level even if you’re not in the chronic illness side.” Coffee Enema To those who want to try a coffee enema, Dr. Jay Davidson recommends getting organic, non-pesticide sprayed coffee beans. Light or air roasted coffee is best. “It’s not green coffee, but it’s not a medium or dark roast. We go for light or air-roasted because it has more things we want health-wise, especially that the liver will benefit from,” reveals Dr. Jay Davidson. “It increases detoxification, raises glutathione, increases bile production of the liver and increases purging of the bile.” Here are the steps on how to do a coffee enema: Put a tablespoon of ground coffee per cup of water. If you do a 4-cup solution, put four tablespoons of ground coffee in water. You can add essential oils or molasses — the reason why Dr. Jay Davidson adds the molasses in his coffee enema is actually to make it easier to hold it in. Boil coffee on the stove for 20 minutes and hold the enema for 15 minutes. “When you hold coffee in, it speeds up the blood flow. Blood usually goes through the liver every six minutes. When you do a coffee enema, that shrinks to 3 minutes,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. BioActive Carbon BioTox BioActive Carbon BioTox is for ammonia, mold, fungus, and candida.  Dr. Jay Davidson says it helps to regulate oxygenation up. It is also a perfect supportive formula for cellular energy. “You can take BioActive Carbon Biotox and BioActive Carbon Foundation before and after a coffee enema. The BioTox not only is in phase two but can also be in phase zero or the energy booster pack because it helps the mitochondria,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. Gallbladder Flush To restore health, Dr. Jay Davidson gave these simple protocol: Don’t eat fat for the day. Stop eating at 2 pm. Drink some Epson salt around 6 pm and 8 pm. It’s going to cause diarrhea, and it will clear the intestines and move stuff quick. Take some olive oil and fresh grapefruit. Mix and drink it. Lie down and fall asleep. Olive oil causes the bile and gallbladder to purge. Start drinking Epson salt in the morning as well to flush colon.  Eating Right Dr. Jay Davidson is no different from the other experts we had on the show as far as food is concerned. He says good diet is essential. Because it is the foundation. “You can’t out supplement a bad diet. Make sure you are eating clean and healthy,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “Beyond that, you can look at the supplements and what you can do to help support the liver.  He adds, “We have a formula called Kidney Liver Detox. But a lot of supplement companies have kidney formulas and gallbladder bile duct type formulas as well. Apart from that, also eat food with bitters in them.” Phase Two Dr. Jay Davidson says phase two is necessary because the big toxicity epidemic has created an environment to attract the body to parasites. He believes that the idea wherein we are going to be sterile from parasites is not reality. Because we’re not eliminating every single critter in the body or parasite. “Parasites will absorb toxins and heavy metals. So, when you’re doing as a parasite-type cleanse, I recommend at least 90 days,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.  He adds, “People with chronic illness or health issues could be much longer. Bottom line, when it comes to cleansing, persistence, and consistency is the name of the game. Also, do a longer initial cleanse and then modify the maintenance.” Mimosa Pudica Seed Mimosa Pudica Seed is one of the products under the Microbe Formulas label. Dr. Jay Davidson says it is the formula one, followed by the BioActive Carbon BioTox. Dr. Jay Davidson also clarifies that BioTox could be in phase zero or energy booster pack. It is an organic ingredient and they have a special way to grind it down that is effective. It is also a great gut grabber and gut scrubber. “We know we can’t be all things to everybody. But the things we up out with, we want to be able to make changes in people’s lives and come out with the best stuff,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.   Bio Dr. Jay Davidson D.C., PSc.D. completed his undergraduate studies at University Wisconsin La Crosse Majoring in Biology with biomedical concentration and chemistry minor.

You surely don’t want to be sick during the holidays, so it’s best to bookmark this episode of effective cold and flu remedies that have been tested and proven. First of all, it’s important to know how your immune system works. Our blood circulates through the heart and lungs. It got oxygenated and pumped out to all the cells in the body. This is how the body receives oxygen and nutrition to the 37.3 trillion cells in our body. And the lymph system is responsible for collecting the fluid from the cells and brings it back to the circulatory system where the blood is. It’s the white blood cells get to go into the lymph system. When there’s a presence of virus and bacteria, the lymph system detects it. Hence, the lymph nodes harden. But don’t be alarmed when you feel it because it’s a good thing. The lymph system holds those bad bacteria inside those lymph nodes. It brings in the lymphocytes which are the white blood cells to attack the bad bacteria. While that’s happening, this is also when we feel under the weather, experiencing anything from a cough, sore throat, chills, fever or sinus issues. But we can counter all that with effective cold and flu remedies. Our immune system is spread throughout our whole body, but most of it is centered around the digestive system. And the digestive system is one of the main areas where a virus can get into our body. That’s why we have to make sure our gut is always healthy. And we can achieve this by having a diet that supports gut health. For our immune system to work optimally, the body needs 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, two essential fatty acids, and 60 trace minerals and elements. And an excellent way to get all these nutrients is by eating right, particularly a variety of vegetables and fruits. Cow Dairy Some people notice a decrease in immune response once they drink cow’s milk. Some people find that drinking cow milk is healthy for them. So it’s all about listening to your body if it responds well to cow milk. If you notice any symptoms after drinking cow milk, consider 100% omitting cow milk from your diet for 30 days. Then re-introduce it after a month and see how your body responds. The thing is, people don’t realize that in drinking cow milk, you are drinking the immune system of another animal. That’s why for some people, it negatively affects their immune response. Hence, Naturopaths usually recommend eliminating dairy from their diet. Processed Sugar Processed sugar also tears down our immune system. So, eating foods that contain processed sugar or flour, it spikes blood sugar. And in eating processed sugar, we are also feeding an infection like candida or some other opportunistic germs because they live off sugar. Consider lowering or eliminating sugar or any processed sugar like agave or honey. Stevia, on the other hand, doesn’t create sugar in the body because it’s an herb. Recommended Foods I can’t stress this enough—eat lots of veggies! Start with protein-rich foods, in your case it would be eggs and wild-caught fish as well as lentils. A colorful variety of veggies contains all of the antioxidants and immune boosting phytochemicals we need. Mushrooms and onions, for example, are excellent immune boosters.  Shopping List Below is my list of proven activities to help relieve the suffering and support your immune system in recovering faster. Do what you can, when you can. Relaxing and giving the body time to heal is the best thing you can do. Immune-supportive activities would include resting, staying warm and doing things that make you happy. But first, here’s a shopping list of what you’ll need: Throat Coat Tea: https://amzn.to/2QU0fix Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray: https://amzn.to/2GkFubP OLBAS: https://amzn.to/2A3gZKy Epsom Salt, high-quality bulk bag: https://amzn.to/2GiTaEi Rebounder – See below 4 Organic Lemons 2 Packets of Fresh Thyme Two thumbs of Fresh Ginger Cayenne powder, optional: https://amzn.to/2GhKhut Neti Pot, optional: https://amzn.to/2GvmZ4L Two pairs of organic cotton socks: https://amzn.to/2rBDFNs Large wool socks: https://amzn.to/2GgAbdi Rebounding Rebounding is a way to strengthen the lymphatic system. Get a small trampoline for adults which you can find on eBay, Facebook Marketplace, Offer Up or Craigslist. Here are some examples: High Quality, around $200 New Sportplus Silent Fitness Mini Trampoline – https://amzn.to/2GjLamx Good Quality, around $100 New https://amzn.to/2GkAG6t What to look for in a rebounder for Lymph circulation: The kind that does not have springs, but instead has bands that hold the trampoline mat in place. This will make it a quiet experience, so it doesn’t squeak every time you bounce. Be sure the max weight is above what you weigh. Get one that folds away so you can store it under your bed or couch when not in use. Get one with a handlebar for safety and stability. For fun, you can also pay a bit more and get one that comes with attachments and workout DVDs, so you can also use the rebounder for great home cardio workouts that are fun! Jump on the rebounder for ten minutes a day. Ideally, do it once in the morning and again at night. Don’t jump to the point your feet are leaving the mat. Because if you are, you’re not rebounding. Just bounce. Do some slow, deep breathing as you bounce. By doing this, you’ll notice you have way more energy, and you’ll feel calmer. And it supports your immune system. It helps to pull all that fluid out and back in through the lymph nodes. Importance of Vitamin D Vitamin D is a hormone the body makes when we expose our skin or eyes to direct sunlight. The vitamin level you are looking for is anywhere between 50 to 60. Some doctors recommend it to be higher than 60. Ideally, you should do your blood work at least once a year to test your vitamin D levels. If it falls below 50, you have to take some vitamin D supplements. And if it’s below 30, some Naturopaths will recommend taking 10,000 international units for 30 days. Then back to 5,000 international units for the next two months after which you need to get tested again. If your vitamin D levels are not trending upwards or close to 60, it’s probably because you are not taking enough supplements, your gut is not absorbing it. You may also have something going on with your parathyroid or other factors. If your levels are lower than 30, you are at risk for cancer, a lowered immune system response and lower energy. Not a lot of people know that you can get fatigue from lower vitamin D levels. Also, check out episode 34 where I did a whole episode about vitamin D with Dr. Heidi Semanie. There’s a vitamin D test from Walkinlab.com is about $60. Get your vitamin D tested at least once a year. If it is still low after taking a daily supplement, please consult a Naturopathic doctor or a physician that is trained in understanding vitamin D deficiencies and how to address them.  Take Your Supplements If you’re a regular listener of my show, you most likely have noticed that I often mention www.takeyoursupplements.com. I could not express enough how they have significantly helped my family’s health over the years. From their website, you can buy the liquid vitamin, amino acid and mineral drink that my family and I take. You can also get a great vitamin D spray for your kids and an excellent liquid mineral supplement for your whole family. The dose is also based on body weight. As you grow, the more nutrition your body needs. And once your body gets the nutrition it needs, the body starts functioning better. Cold Sock Treatment The Cold Sock Treatment is a simple hydrotherapy technique that is especially effective for relieving nasal congestion in bed at night (frequently better than medications and without the side effects). It also helps to stimulate the immune system in the upper respiratory tract and is relaxing for aches and chills and helps bring on a more restful night’s sleep when sick. We find it helpful in such conditions as colds, “flu” (not the “stomach flu”), earaches, sore throats, and sinus infections. It is useful with people of any age from infants to the elderly. The Cold Sock Treatment is especially good to use with the nasal congestion of colds and influenza. You want to do this treatment for five or more nights in a row. And do it whenever you feel the onset of a cold or flu as sometimes it is all the stimulation your immune system needed to get the job done! Most sporting goods stores and some department stores carry wool socks. For small children you can use safety pins to hold a wool sock on that is too large, or rap wool cloth around each foot. For this treatment, you will need two pairs of large cotton socks and a pair of wool socks. They must be at least 90% cotton and 90% wool, respectively. Preparations: In the evening before going to bed, prepare by having two pairs of large cotton socks and a couple of wool socks. At least 1 hour before bed soak both pairs of cotton socks in cold water and place in the freezer. The wool socks are to remain dry and warm. Step 1. Remove socks from the freezer and add a bit of cold water to them to make them damp and malleable. Place the cold socks close to the basin or bathtub used in the next step. Note: If your feet are already warm (e.g., you have already been in bed, or you just took a hot bath) you can skip to Step 3. Step 2. Put your feet into a basin or bathtub of hot water to warm up your feet. Soak them for a few minutes until they are hot and pink. Step 3. Remove your feet from the hot water and quickly dry them off. Immediately put on the two pairs of cold, wet cotton socks, and then over them, put on the dry wool socks. Step 4. Go directly to bed and keep the feet covered through the night. The therapy does not work if you or your feet are uncovered, such as when walking around or sitting in a chair uncovered. Use extra blankets to create an artificial fever. See my instructions on creating a good fever using a hot bath and extra blankets below. When the Cold Sock Treatment procedure is followed the feet correctly will start warming up within a few minutes of getting covered in bed. The congestion will usually begin to be relieved within 30 minutes. It will often work better than a decongestant or antihistamine to alleviate congestion during sleep. Also, it is not uncommon to see a small child or infant fall immediately to sleep after they are put to bed with the Cold Sock Treatment. After approximately four hours the socks should be totally dry, the feet warm, and the symptoms will be much improved (if not gone). If necessary, the Cold Sock Treatment can be repeated through the night or used on consecutive nights. Just add more pairs of wet cotton socks to the freezer ion the evening if you want to repeat it a few times in the night. In repeating the treatment in the same night or if an illness starts during the night, it is not necessary to warm the feet in hot water since they will already be warm. Just apply the cold, wet socks and the dry wool socks and go back to bed, using extra covers to stay warm. And be sure to drink plenty of warm calming tea. Fresh Thyme Tea This is a WONDERFUL herb for expelling congestion and also as an antiviral. You will take 4 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Remove from heat. Add half a package of fresh thyme and cover for 6 minutes. Serve with lemon or honey or drink plain. You want to drink this earlier in the day as it will stimulate you to cough because it loosens the mucus and helps get rid of it! If drank too late into the night the coughing might keep you awake. The thyme does not cause you to cough. It causes the mucus to break up and move. Your body then wants to cough it up. So best if you are not lying down when that happens. Because this works so well as a decongestant, I like to drink about 8 cups of this a day when I am congested, so I will easily go through two to four packets of fresh thyme during a bad cold. Throat Coat Tea For this tea recipe, use two bags of the Throat Coat tea for 16oz of water. So, you will want to buy a few boxes of it as during one bad cold you may go through a few boxes because it does bring relief from the scratchy, itchy throat! There are no side effects to drinking this tea. There are wonderful herbs in the tea that support being calm and feeling good. The organic tea is by a company called Traditional Medicinals. They also have another product called Breathe Easy. It’s a great blend, too. Hot Water And Lemon Juice Tea This tea is something from my childhood. Citrus is a mucus creator, but the juice of two lemons in four cups of water help cut the mucus especially if you have a really bad sore throat. You can also use limes if you don’t like lemons. We add ginger because ginger calms to stomach. You can play around with the concoction by adding more herbs like peppermint. OLBAS I discovered OLBAS when I was a teenager. OLBAS is not a massage oil. It’s 100% essential oil. It’s like Vicks Vaporub because a lot of essential oils used in Vicks Vaporub is in OLBAS. OLBAS is a bunch of essential oils that are perfect for the respiratory system like frankincense. It opens up the airways, so it’s really good for asthmatics. However, frankincense is not an OLBAS. Eucalyptus is also fantastic for the lungs. If you can’t find OLBAS in your area, you can use other blends that are also wonderful for addressing congestion. Incidentally, OLBAS is also effective in treating sinus, bronchial or lung congestion. Only use one or two drops at a time. OLBAS Steam Towel Treatment for Sinus Congestion You will need a large bowl or pot, OLBAS, boiling water, a large towel, and tissues. Then follow the procedure below: Place something safe on your kitchen table to protect the table from the hot bowl or pot. Place the big bowl or pot with boiling water on the table and sit in front of it. Have more water boiling in a kettle on the stove. Add 1 or 2 drops of the OLBAS to the hot water. Take your large towel and put it over your head and over the pot making a tent to trap the steam. Your head is now leaning over the pot directly above it. Keep your eyes closed as the vapors will sting your eyes. Take a deep breath through your nose. Do this for the next 2 minutes. Then remove the towel. Blow your nose a bunch, cough up any mucus you feel the need to expel and repeat by adding only one drop of OLBAS this time. After a minute or two add more hot water from the stove and repeat a third time adding 1 or 2 drops of OLBAS, using the towel as a tent and inhaling all the vapors through your nose. Taking breaks to blow and clear your sinuses. You will want to do this more than once a day as your sinuses may refill in a few hours. Be sure to do it before bed if you are not going to take the hot bath I have outlined above. After you have completed the OLBAS treatment and you have blown everything out of your nose use the colloidal silver nasal spray liberally. With each spray change the angle of your head, so you start to look up making the last spray so that you are looking directly at the ceiling. This angle change as you spray and inhale into your nose will help to direct the solution into all sinus passages. Even when you have not done the OLBAS treatment, please use the silver spray liberally through the day. I have killed sinus infections with this one supplement alone! You also want to keep a bottle by your bedside and do it whenever you wake in the night to blow your nose. Three to five sprays per nostril while inhaling. And you can also spray the back of your throat while inhaling as well. Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray Seven years ago, I had the worst sinus infection. Apparently, in the presence of silver, pathogens can’t survive. This is how to use this product: Sit up straight with your nose facing the wall. Spray three times while inhaling in one nostril and three times in the next nostril. Then take your nose and eyes and look up approximately on a 45-degree angle. Spray again and inhale as you spray. The third time you do it, make your nose point all the way up to the ceiling. You cannot overdose on the spray. So it’s very safe. But as always, it’s best to have a Naturopath to guide you. Use it every few hours especially after the OLBAS treatment if your sinuses are very clogged. Artificial Fever Treatment We want to create an artificial fever to support the body in killing the germs! Because pathogens cannot survive in heat or a feverish environment. One thing that is very interesting about the immune system is there are powerful white blood cells that do not even turn on until the body is in a fever state. So, doing things like hot baths, drinking hot fluids and saunas can help to stimulate all of our immune system to fight a cold or flu when we feel one coming on. First, make one of the teas of your choice or chamomile tea. You can also make this concoction: 4 cups water The juice of 2 lemons One teaspoon Cayenne One thumb of freshly grated ginger Stevia, maple syrup or honey if you need it to taste good. However, be cautious as germs feed off of sugar, so stevia is the safest option. Simmer the water and add the ginger and Cayenne. Then remove from heat and the lemon and optional sweetener. This helps with sore throats and congestion. Bring a large mug of your hot drink to the bath. This is how to prepare the hot bath: Prepare a bath as hot as you can stand it. Do not burn yourself but make it very warm. Keep the door to the bathroom closed while drawing the hot bath to keep the warm steam inside. You will want to breathe it in along with the essential oils you will place in the tub. Add 4 cups of Epsom salt, roughly half the bag, to the bath as the tub is filling up with hot water. Have ready several blankets in your bed as you will create a cocoon once you come out of the bath. Before getting into the bath add ten drops of the OLBAS and stir the water to make sure it mixes in and that the salt has dissolved. Close the bathroom door, so you can breathe in the OLBAS and warm, moist air while in the bath. Get in, relax and drink your hot beverage. See if you can get your husband to refill your drink. Soak for 20 minutes minimum. You can add more hot water to the bath to increase the temp as you will become accustomed to the heat. When you start to sweat, stay in 5 minutes longer, then you can get out. Do not stay in longer than 60min. Make sure you have drunk at least two mugs of hot tea while in the bath. If at any point you feel dizzy or light-headed, ask for assistance in getting out of the bath. You can try adding some cold water to the bath to bring down the temp a bit to see if the dizziness resolves itself. Make sure your husband is within earshot in case you need help. Sometimes hot baths can make people feel light headed when they stand so to prevent an accident, please be aware that you may need to ask for a hand in getting out of the bath safely. If you develop a headache while in the hot bath, take a hand towel, the kind that is long enough to wrap around your neck, soak it with cold water from the tub’s faucet and wrap it around your neck. This will cool the blood flowing to your brain and trick your brain into thinking you are not as hot as you are. Have another mug of hot tea waiting for you by your bedside. When you are ready to get out of the bath, towel off quickly and wrap yourself in one of your many blankets, then get into bed and create a cocoon. Cover everything, even your head. Just have your face exposed so you can breathe and sip tea. At this point, you can do the cold sock therapy as well. Get your husband to bring you the frozen socks and dry wool socks. Stay bundled up for at least an hour. You will begin to sweat and feel feverish. Fight the urge to throw off the blankets! You want to create a little sauna in your bed. This is stimulating your immune system to kill the germs AND germs also cannot live in a feverish environment as their proteins denature at a higher temperature. So, they explode and break apart when we get too warm for them to handle. YAY! Visualize your white blood cell soldiers coming to life and winning the battle with the bugs as you lay in your cocoon. At this point, you can fall asleep like this, or if you did this during the daytime you can take a nap or get out of bed after the hour is up. You will want to shower off when you do get out of bed, and likely the blanket you initially wrapped yourself in will be wet from sweat. Still, bundle up and keep as warm as possible both day and night for the next week. You can do this daily while your cold or flu symptoms are around. Please be sure to drink extra water and make it warm or hot instead of cold. Bottom line, don’t be afraid to seek help from a health practitioner if you still feel too sick. Get checked out before it gets worse. Homeopathy Homeopathy is so affordable and buy the kits or vials to keep in your medicine cabinet for your immediate use whenever you need them. If kept in a cool, dark area, they can retain their potency for years. Do check out a guest I had in past episodes who talked about Homeopathy and other natural flu remedies extensively. Dr. Cilla Whatcott specializes in homeoprophylaxis which is a natural version of immunization. Because you can use it to train the immune system to mount a healthy immune response to pathogens. Homeopathy has no side effects, yet it gives amazing results when it comes to helping people move through illnesses faster.  Get Educated Whenever you try any remedy in Natural Medicine, you still need to understand if any risks or side effects may crop up. Because even herbal medicine if misused, may be dangerous. Continuously do research and get as many references and resources from reputable Naturopathic Doctors and health practitioners. The more perspectives you get, the better you can advocate for yourselves. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my tips and tricks on how to reach optimal health naturally and effective cold and flu remedies. I have lots in store for you this coming January, especially my very affordable $37 workshop. Those are four live webinars about creating healthy habits that make a huge difference in your health. Have a fantastic day and enjoy this wonderful holiday season!

314 PART TWO Using Intuition, Energy, Ancient Medicine, and Science To Discover What The Body Needs, Founder of PlantTalk, AnimalTalk, and BodyTalk System Dr. John Veltheim

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE! Join My New Year's Health Transformation Workshop Now: http://learntruehealth.com/yes   Body Talk System: https://www.bodytalksystem.com   AnimalTalk http://learntruehealth.com/animaltalk AnimalTalk and PlantTalk were also founded by my guest, Dr. John Veltheim.  Understanding the connection that we have with animals and plants can affect our well-being in some way.  That’s why Dr. John Veltheim is still with us in part two of our interview to explain how our brain works and how our body responds accordingly. Left and Right Brain Dr. John Veltheim explains that our right brain is very much the intuitive side or the higher learning side. Left brain, on the other hand, is more practical. He cites a Cambridge study wherein experts studied human skulls. The study found that in the 1400s to 1600s, the right brain is bigger than the left. That’s why religion dominated during those time. “If you’re a scientist, you usually got killed for it. In the 1800s, science started to win out. Due to development that people liked,” said Dr. John Veltheim.  He adds, “So, we saw this dominance from right brain to left brain going into the 1900s. There was a transition inside the skull. But in the meantime, it destroyed the relationship between the left and right brain because they had to move physically and got out of alignment from one another.” Understanding Brain Response In the same Cambridge study, Dr. John Veltheim said it showed that when the right brain is sending signals to the left, the left brain usually responded. But the response was to destroy or negate the information coming from the right brain. That explains the battle of the sexes. It’s either the right-brain female or left-brain male. “So, while this adoption occurs physically, we have this problem of electromagnetic frequencies. The technique we do in reaching the brain and tapping it out restores and increases the brain function dramatically and keeps stress levels down,” Dr. John Veltheim said. BodyTalk is a combination of ancient practices with modern science. It promotes total wellness naturally. Furthermore, Dr. John Veltheim says it is a first-aid kit for the body to compensate for the changes occurring in the brain and all the stuff in the outside.  AnimalTalk Most of us who love our pets so doubt can feel a strong connection with them. It is invisible to the naked eye, but we can affect each other’s well-being.  Especially with dogs, sometimes they would get sick so that we wouldn’t fall ill. AnimalTalk can help you understand your connection with your beloved pet in a profound way. The sessions can significantly benefit the energy around you and your pet, as well as your surrounding environment. According to Dr. John Veltheim, doing AnimalTalk three to four times for about three days can be transformational. This is because he says animals respond beautifully. Dr. John Veltheim recalled a time when he was invited to a rehabilitation area for rhinos and elephants in Nairobi. Those animals were abandoned as babies and left to die. They would not eat or drink. But Dr. John Veltheim applied the principles of AnimalTalk, worked on them, and the animals, fortunately, responded so well.  BodyTalk Courses BodyTalk Access, in particular, is currently being taught by hundreds of people all over the world.  It is affordable and easy to learn because the training manual is clear. Dr. John Veltheim says that even children can quickly learn on the same day. “There are first-aid treatments that you can use. It’s designed to help injuries like a sprained ankle, and it gets better faster,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “We encourage people to do it regularly on each other and their family because it is maintenance. It’s not a be all end all. But it is designed to be a very helpful home tool.” Dr. John Veltheim says health practitioners can take the Fundamentals technique which is a four-day course. The training program guides you through the principles of BodyTalk, Acess and has fifteen more techniques. To those who want to upgrade their skills and knowledge can sign up for the diploma course wherein the government recognizes graduates. There is even an advanced certification that takes two to three more years of study. “I teach a lot of Theoretical Physics. A lot of the techniques of BodyTalk is based on Quantum theory. And we learn a lot of advanced courses for high-speed communication for treating difficult things. We also do a lot of philosophy,” said Dr. John Veltheim.  He adds, “It’s about the power of the body to heal itself if given the opportunity. BodyTalk is setting up the conditions in the body to enable it to heal itself.” Dr. John Veltheim has a high success rate in teaching practitioners and treating patients with BodyTalk. To avail of the courses he offers, as well as excellent reading resources on BodyTalk, do check out his website. Better Food and Lifestyle Dr. John Veltheim firmly stresses that what you eat is very important. But it could be easily misunderstood because so much of it depends on our belief system and our attitude. “When it comes to eating right, it is state of mind and state of the way we look at things,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “And the fact is, in certain cultures, having extra weight is something very important for the culture.” When Dr. John Veltheim was developing BodyTalk, he revealed that he needed more weight because the weight helped anchor him. But a year ago, Dr. John Veltheim decided he had too much weight, so he decided to lose weight. But Dr. John Veltheim didn’t change his diet. He took extra effort to walk for exercise, but his mental thing was that he was going to lose weight healthily. And he did. Ultimately, it was about shifting the state of mental consciousness. And with losing weight, it’s about accepting your genes. Dr. John Veltheim also encourages people to nurture their thirst for knowledge and find out the best way to truly take care of their body. “I’d like to educate people that there are some things I do would be better handled with natural therapy. It will be less traumatic to the patient and faster,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  Bio Dr. John Veltheim D.C, B.Ac is the founder of the BodyTalk System and the International BodyTalk Association. He is also the founder of AnimalTalk and PlantTalk. Dr. John Veltheim is a chiropractor, traditional acupuncturist, philosopher, Reiki Master, lecturer, and teacher.  The BodyTalk System was first developed in the 1990s by Dr. John Veltheim. Originally from Australia, Dr. John Veltheim ran a very successful clinic in Brisbane for 15 years. He was also the Principal of the Brisbane College of Acupuncture and Natural Therapies for five years.  His extensive post-graduate studies include applied kinesiology, bioenergetic psychology, osteopathy, quantum physics, sports medicine, counseling, and comparative philosophy and theology.  Dr. John Veltheim discovered the BodyTalk System in the mid-1990s.  His state of health was compromised despite being a leader in the healthcare field working with both eastern and western methods.  He eventually found a simple technique that corrected his condition.  Dr. John Veltheim saw this breakthrough as a new priority in his life and proceeded to investigate the techniques and principals involved.  In 1998, Dr. John Veltheim moved to Sarasota, Florida to further his practice and research of BodyTalk. Soon he began to teach advanced levels of the BodyTalk System to professionals as well as lay people. When word spread about the successes of this remarkable new healthcare system, he took on the task of training other instructors, so the BodyTalk System could be taught worldwide. Today there are over 200 instructors teaching in over 50 countries with a translation of training materials into ten languages.  Today, Dr. John Veltheim travels the world, teaching sessions in BodyTalk and its related wellness programs to professionals as well as lay people. He continues to mentor and train a network of instructors to ensure this remarkable new healthcare system can be taught worldwide. Get Connected With Dr. John Veltheim!

313 Using Intuition, Energy, Ancient Medicine and Science To Discover What The Body Needs, Founder of BodyTalk System Dr. John Veltheim, Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Kinesiology

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE! Join My New Year's Health Transformation Workshop Now: http://learntruehealth.com/yes   Body Talk System: https://www.bodytalksystem.com   BodyTalk System http://learntruehealth.com/bodytalk-system-john-veltheim BodyTalk System is earning raves from practitioners and patients from all over the world. Instead of using medication, the BodyTalk System teaches us how to connect with our body, use our intuition and energy for healing. To talk more about the BodyTalk System, I have no less than its founder Dr. John Veltheim expound on the BodyTalk System in this two-part interview series. Starting Early Dr. John Veltheim says he has always been interested in searching for life and interested in life itself. He started early doing meditation at the age of 7 and eventually also studied martial arts. Martial arts gave Dr. John Veltheim an appreciation of the energy systems of the body and the way they move. However, Dr. John Veltheim says his first significant interest was philosophy or Indian Philosophy in particular. He was also very interested in comparative religion. Dealing With Injuries Dr. John Veltheim was no stranger to injuries. But he shares that doctors weren’t helping his health situation improve. So, Dr. John Veltheim eventually found alternative therapies like osteopathy, chiropractic, and acupuncture techniques which helped him a lot. That experience enticed Dr. John Veltheim to go into this Holistic field rather than the straight medical field.  Teaching Acupuncture Dr. John Veltheim went to college in Melbourne, after which he started out doing chiropractic. From there, he went to acupuncture, studied extensively and decided that he needed to teach it. “So, I formed a college that is now the second largest acupuncture college in the world. I wrote a four-year full-time curriculum. And I did a lot of work with sports medicine as well. I also did Naturopathy and Nutrition,” said Dr. John Veltheim.  Work Challenges Dr. John Veltheim says that one of the big problems having a bustling clinic is that it is hard to maintain. Hence, it was not surprising that he became swamped. “My life has always been around healthcare. And the college that I developed, I was principal for many years. I wrote their curriculum, and it’s still going,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “It’s now a university course recognized by the government, a six-year full-time university course.”  He adds, “The Federal Health Department and government also recognize our BodyTalk System in Australia. So, when practitioners get our basic qualifications, they can practice with health benefits among other things.”  Personal Experience Dr. John Veltheim also explored Taoism or Daoism. He also pursued a Ph.D. degree in Toronto University studying ancient Chinese medical philosophy. “What got me going in BodyTalk was a personal thing. I worked for around 16 years, six days a week. And had the biggest practice in Australia by far. Then my health caught up with me. I suddenly collapsed, was hospitalized and given just days to live,” shares Dr. John Veltheim.  Dr. John Veltheim contracted the Epstein Barr virus. His liver was severely damaged that he was given three days to live. Finding A Cure Refusing to give up, Dr. John Veltheim checked himself out of the hospital and proceeded to treat himself with Chinese herbs, acupuncture, and meditation. He soon recovered and realized the need to change his lifestyle. A couple of months later, he went back to the hospital for a check-up and astounded the doctors upon seeing that Dr. John Veltheim’s liver was back to normal size. Dr. John Veltheim eventually sold his practice and began teaching stress management, philosophy, and Reiki around the world.  Teaching Career After his health improved, Dr. John Veltheim quit his practice.  He then met his second wife and went into teaching Mindscape and other things that his wife developed like the BreakThrough System which is defined as a dynamic process of self-inquiry. By 1995, Dr. John Veltheim had a basic program that he decided he could teach on weekends. It had excellent results and kept expanding from there. “Then I developed a concept of being able to get a protocol going where we could communicate with the body. I developed a system to talk to your body by biofeedback, question, and answer, and muscle testing,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  He adds, “I refined it to a more accurate system. But basically, it’s based on getting in touch with the intuition of the patient and your intuition. And then asking what to do based on a protocol. The protocol is the left-brain factor that enables you to focus on what you are doing and then focus the right brain.” As Dr. John Veltheim introduced it to many different aspects, he brought in nutrition factors and sports medicine factors. He also did a lot of work involving neurology and balancing the brain. “I simplified it so that people can understand it. Although it is best suited for practitioners who were ready to refine their practice and refine the principles of BodyTalk to their staff,” said Dr. John Veltheim. Diet Dr. John Veltheim says there’s no such thing as a good diet or the perfect diet for a particular person. He never prescribes diets per se. “I look at the person, their needs, chemistry, and blood group. Essentially, it’s a formalized system that follows a protocol that makes sure we cover all the things,” Dr. John Veltheim said. Tapping Practitioners bring in tough cases, and Dr. John Veltheim says his job is to treat them by going through the process. He does the appropriate linking through the nervous system, energy system or the blood system. And through the process of lightly tapping on the head, sternum and the gut, it activates the neurological systems. “That tapping is something I development many years ago. A lot of people are using it now,” said Dr. John Veltheim. “The power of tapping is when you tap, you set off a wavelength that causes any form of subtle imbalance that you are aiming at. It causes the body to start balancing, and then the body heals itself.”  The Effectiveness of the BodyTalk System Since developing the BodyTalk System, Dr. John Veltheim never made any decision about a patient. He sits with the patient and let their body tell him precisely what to do. “I don’t make any decisions about it although I have to know which questions to ask. But beyond that, the body heals itself,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  He adds, “Those people who are patients or BodyTalkers for a while, start looking at things differently. Our upbringing and our genes will determine a lot of what we can or can’t do in life. Then we start looking at the cells differently because the kidney-adrenal complex controls the cells’ energy.” Mindscape Dr. John Veltheim reveals that a significant percentage of athletic injuries are due to emotional life or sometimes diet. Emotional factors play a substantial role for athletes because it is devastating to train for the Olympics and then miss out at the last moment. And Mindscape helps them deal with that. “Mindscape that I developed back them is now used throughout the world. I think Björn Borg was one of the first to apply it. We are all intuitive. It’s just a matter of learning the pros and cons of how to do it,” said Dr. John Veltheim. Healing Organs According to Dr. John Veltheim, the heart and liver are the easiest organs to heal. He also says the microbiome is the physical part of our body. And that they are the most influential thing in the body. It’s about getting the right condition for creating health. “I teach energy manipulation to get them into position. The body then gets to synchronize and communicate well between the brain in the head, the brain in the heart and brain in the gut. However, the heart brain is more complex than the brain in the head,” said Dr. John Veltheim. He adds, “When you train the body and the brain system to work properly, it means the right brain is doing the right things. And that’s part of the BodyTalk System.”  BodyTalk Access BodyTalk Access is the basic fundamental for BodyTalk that will generally balance out the body. Its domestic first-aid techniques will help you heal quicker. “You can’t practice professionally with it. But it’s great to use in the family or yourself. It balances the brain, reduces stress and allows the brain to function better. Ultimately, it makes a big difference,” Dr. John Veltheim said.  Bio Dr. John Veltheim D.C, B.Ac is the founder of the BodyTalk System and the International BodyTalk Association. Dr. John Veltheim is a chiropractor, traditional acupuncturist, philosopher, Reiki Master, lecturer, and teacher.  The BodyTalk System was first developed in the 1990s by Dr. John Veltheim.

312 The Whole Body Approach To Curing and Healing Back Pain and Chronic Pain, Three Weeks to a Better Back, The Back Pain Relief Diet, Dr. Todd Sinett, The Sinett Solution, Listening To The Body To Fi

The Back Pain Relief Diet: The Undiscovered Key to Reducing Inflammation and Eliminating Pain https://amzn.to/2E274Ig The Ultimate Backbridge Stretch Book: (The Sinett Solution) https://amzn.to/2Qzjcah Dr. Todd Sinett Backbridge – Lumbar Support and Pain Relief for Lower and Upper Back – Adjustable Stretching and Strengthening Back Arch https://amzn.to/2PkdEvE   The Sinett Solution http://learntruehealth.com/the-sinett-solution The Sinett Solution is one of the approaches worth looking into if you have back pain issues. It’s a common misconception that things like back pain and other chronic problems can only be addressed with medication. Dr. Todd Sinett is my guest today who will tell us exactly how The Sinett Solution has helped change so many lives. Father’s Ordeal The Sinett Solution was not conceived overnight. It started with the personal experience of Dr. Todd Sinett’s father who was a chiropractor for fifteen years. One day, Dr. Todd Sinett’s father bent to pick up a tennis ball which resulted in back pain and a nine-month journey to find a solution. His father was completely debilitated by back pain to the point he was unable to work and was incapacitated for nine months. A breakthrough came when Dr. Todd Sinett’s father went to see a Dr. George Goodheart who was a chiropractor in Detroit. Dr. George Goodheart initially asked about diet and digestive function. After a through diagnosis, Dr. George Goodheart surmised that the act of bending down to pick up a tennis ball was not the real cause of the back pain of Dr. Todd Sinett’s father. Poor Diet Poor diet is the cause of the elder Sinett’s back spasm. His diet was filled with sugar, hence upsetting his stomach and creating something called visceral somatic reaction. “Our digestive system is very much linked to our muscular system. Dr. Goodheart made dad completely change his diet,” recalls Dr. Todd Sinett. “He removed all the sugars and irritants to his digestive system and was 100% cured. That changed the way he practiced, and he then wanted to help people.”  Helping People Dr. Todd Sinett is a second-generation chiropractor. And he feels his life mission is to help as many people as possible. He says as he got older, this information became too vital for him to pass up. “My life mission is to help as many people as possible. I came up with The Sinett Solution, and it is the right approach to diagnose and treat back pain. It’s a paradigm problem. And it is a philosophical problem which is why we have so much back pain,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. Harsh Reality Dr. Todd Sinett says if you look at the statistics of back pain, we are in a complete health epidemic. Because 20% of the world population suffers from back pain. And 85% of the world will suffer from back pain. “It’s the second leading cause of missed work days. And it’s the number one reason for job disability,” Dr. Todd Sinett shares. “But all we keep doing is putting more energy, more effort, more time, more money, more invasive treatments to try treat back pain. We keep having more back pain. Something needs to change.”  He adds, “The only random thing in the body is trauma. If you fall off a bicycle or be involved in a motor vehicle accident, that’s trauma. And that’s a random event. Other than that, everything else is building little by little.” Dr. Todd Sinett also reveals that the rate of back surgery in the U.S. is extremely high to the point where the success rate is so poor, that we have a diagnosis called FBSS or Failed Back Surgical Syndrome. Sources Of Back Pain Dr. Todd Sinett says back pain will come from three sources. Structural imbalances or structural inflammation is where we are spending all of our current energy, time and effort. Furthermore, Stanford University found that stress is the number one factor when it comes to back pain. “Stress and emotions are very important factors. The third is diet, nutrition and digestive function,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. “So, any imbalance in any one of those three areas can trigger back pain. Oddly enough, it can also very commonly be some culmination of two or all three factors.” Dr. Todd Sinett also says just because the pain went away; it does not mean the problem went away. Listen to the body rather than tell it to shut up. “We need to figure out what’s the right diet for a particular individual. What is healthy for you is not necessarily healthy for some. So, make sure you are listening to the body and our digestive system because that is the key,” Dr. Todd Sinett advised.  He adds, “When people are in a lot of pain, doctors will frequently prescribe anti-inflammatory medication. So, if you have a diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature, in theory, it’s going to accomplish the same thing naturally.”   The Back Pain Relief Diet Book The Back Pain Relief Diet is a book Dr. Todd Sinett wrote for people who feel their back pain is diet-related or digestive-related. The first thing Dr. Todd Sinett has in the book is the digestive inflammation test to see if your diet is causing the back pain. Culprits may include anything from caffeine, sugar, alcohol, constipation, diarrhea, or stomach upset. On the other hand, if the back pain is coming from the digestive system, the book provides a diagnostic nutrition test. “In my book, I have three different diets to try and see if we can do everything we can to cut down on inflammation and irritation on a particular diet. It has meal plans, so you can eliminate particular foods,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. The diet ideally takes three weeks, after which Dr. Todd Sinett advises patients to re-introduce foods slowly. He believes this is the easiest method and allows you the flexibility to fix it on your own. “I like to do things nice, easy and simple. There are other steps and other processes, but you always want to do the least invasive test first and then continue to the more and more invasive,” Dr. Todd Sinett said. The 3 Weeks to a Better Back Book Dr. Todd Sinett primarily wrote this book for back pain sufferers. It is a self-diagnostic and self-treatment kind of book. The book will steer you in the right direction to figure out if your back pain is structural in nature, emotional or digestive. Furthermore, the has guidelines to help you figure out the right formula for you, whether your back pain is structural, digestive or emotional. It lays out options for you to try different treatments, different theories, different foods, or have an elimination diet. And it also encourages things like regular walks, listening to music, tapping, and breathing techniques. Bottom line, Dr. Todd Sinett wants to see what resonates with a particular individual. “One of my favorite nuggets of the book is that there was a study in 1994 where they put 98 people in an MRI machine. Two-thirds had a bulge, and 16 or 28% had discorniations, but these people never suffered from back pain,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  He adds, “The usefulness of an MRI is completely misguided. Research now shows that MRIs are more harmful than helpful in diagnosing back pain. There are a lot of myths that we need to re-educate the public, so they can be empowered to fix their own back.” The Ultimate Backbridge Stretch Book Dr. Todd Sinett found the commonality on structural treatments for people and people’s back pain. And one of the commonality is that we’re suffering from too much flexion or too much forward posture. “We need to do the opposite of bending forward. So, I designed a product called the Backbridge, where you lay over 2 minutes in the morning, and 2 minutes in the evening,” says Dr. Todd Sinett. He adds, “It provides an essential progressive extension to one’s spine. It re-aligns the spine, posture, and structure. And it also relieves a lot of back pain. The book also contains stretch routines to regain flexibility. According to Dr. Todd Sinett, the lack of flexibility in our body is probably the missing link when it comes to any fitness. He says bed rest is the worst thing to do. Instead, the best exercise for back pain is walking to circulate blood.  Walking is also a stress reliever. Success Stories There are so many success stories that Dr. Todd Sinett achieved while helping people over the past 20 years. He says back pain is not normal and is completely debilitating. And what you want to do is to try and get to the cause of the back pain, address and fix it. “I want people to make decisions from strength and not from weakness. And I don’t want them to reach false conclusions. It’s not so much what is a healthy diet. But rather it’s about what is a healthy diet for you,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  The Sinett Solution Formulating The Sinett Solution was Dr. Todd Sinett’s aha moment. He recalls making a New Year’s resolution to have oatmeal every day for breakfast. For lunch, it’s salad and lean protein. And for dinner, lean protein and vegetables. But apparently, the diet was unhealthy for Dr. Todd Sinett. He was gassy, bloated, and had a stiff neck. “And the only difference was me eating oatmeal every day for breakfast. So, what I did was, I stopped having oatmeal. I went back to having eggs, whole grain toast, whole grain cereals, peanut butter, and jelly sandwiches,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  He adds, “I think back pain is not the problem, but rather the inflammation factor that winds up in your back. So, what we want to do is get rid of the inflammation. The inflammation can be structural or postural. Hence, we address this first.” Emotional Inflammation Dr. Todd Sinett believes that what we want to know is how our emotions and our stress is impacting our body. Or finding the answer to what is creating a physiologic effect on our body. “Emotions are not just psychological. It creates a physiologic response. To fix that, exercise helps, as well as meditation, talking to a therapist, seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist. What you want to do is reduce as much inflammation from the emotions as much as possible,” said Dr. Todd Sinett.  He adds, “If you get balance in those three areas, the likelihood of having back pain severely diminishes and decreases. A lot of these things are very much inter-related. Our structural system, emotional system, and digestive system are linked.” Troubleshooting Dr. Todd Sinett says if a chiropractor, physical therapist or massage therapist are not helping, there are other natural approaches and natural healing such as trigger point injections which are a bit more invasive. For diet issues, see a nutritionist. Or see a gastroenterologist to get tested. If you have emotional problems and having trouble managing stress, see a stress management counselor.  You can also do biofeedback to monitor response for stress.  It can also teach people how to get their body into a relaxed state. Or see a therapist or psychiatrist. “One of the main problems with our back pain is that our treatment is based on who you see is what you get. And not really what you have,” said Dr. Todd Sinett. “We want to make sure you are in the right place first because that’s when you are going to have success. We want to smart about the approach.”  He adds, “Solving your back pain is a lot simpler than you think. You don’t need to be okay with back pain on a level of two out of ten. I don’t want you to live your life around your back pain. Plus, I want to address all the situations and solutions head-on. And allow you to live a very happy, active, healthy life. Because you don’t need to be living with your back pain.”  Bio Dr. Todd Sinett is a pain expert and chiropractor. In his bestselling series of books, including 3 Weeks to a Better Back, he has introduced the Sinett Solution: the practice of listening to the whole body and treating all sources of back pain on the structural, digestive, and emotional levels (what the calls the “triad of health”).  He is a recognized authority in applied kinesiology and has served as a clinical expert for many TV programs, including The View, FoxMD, and Good Day New York. Dr. Sinett has been a lecturer on MSNBC and at the Learning Annex and has been featured in countless health and fitness publications. Get Connected with Dr. Todd Sinett!

UPDATED 311 The Missing Link To Ultimate Happiness, Freedom, Success, Productivity, and Fulfillment, Healing Patriarchy Stress Disorder, Trauma As Ancestral, Collective, and Individual, Mental Health,

When first published the last 30min of the episode was cut off. This has now been corrected! Free eBook: www.PSDandME.com www.drvaleriebaker.com "I'm passionate about my topic of Patriarchy Stress Disorder as the missing piece to women's ultimate success and happiness because women suffer from a lot of stress-related disorders, yet the underlying trauma is not addressed in their treatment. Women are diagnosed with anxiety and depression almost twice as often as men, and are kept on medication and talk therapy without addressing deep embodied trauma that's underlying these and many other health and mental health conditions. We deserve better than that."   Patriarchy Stress Disorder http://learntruehealth.com/patriarchy-stress-disorder Patriarchy Stress Disorder or PSD affects a significant part of our inner self. This is the reason why even if we are successful in other aspects of our lives, we sometimes feel empty. My guest, Psychologist Dr. Valerie Baker is no stranger to Patriarchy Stress Disorder. She overcame Patriarchy Stress Disorder using some healing tools which she will teach us in today’s episode. Personal Journey First of all, Dr. Valerie Baker says this is not at all about women against men or men against women. But instead, this is about a system that has existed for thousands of years. She also says it has chopped us up from the fullness of our authentic expression. Dr. Valerie Baker journey in discovering Patriarchy Stress Disorder began with a health crisis. Back then, Dr. Valerie Baker’s life from the outside looking in looked perfect. “I checked all of the boxes that the society told me I needed to check. First, I had four degrees including two masters and a Ph.D.,” shares Dr. Valerie Baker. “Then I started three businesses and had a successful career. I married a great guy, had a wonderful daughter, and a lovely house in New York City suburbs.” Am I Happy? Dr. Valerie Baker did a good job convincing herself that she was happy. She made sure she didn’t have time to reflect on how she was doing. Until one day, Dr. Valerie Baker ended up in the emergency room with symptoms of a stroke. The incident led to Dr. Valerie Baker experiencing the left side of her body feels limp. It turned out to be stress. Dr. Valerie Baker didn’t realize she was running high-stress levels. “Being in the ER for a day gave me space to reflect on my life. I hadn’t had that space in a long time. It made me uncomfortable. I didn’t understand why. Why was I so stuck?” pondered Dr. Valerie Baker.  She adds, “I realized the active ingredient in healing for all my patients both emotional and physical was mind body spirit trauma resolution. Even for people who think they didn’t have trauma.”    Seeing A Change Once Dr. Valerie Baker started used mind body spirit resolution tools, she started seeing significant shifts. She had a light bulb moment regarding the trauma we all share.  Men and women both experience trauma but in different ways. “If we accept that being oppressed is traumatic, then we can see that all of us are born with this information that it’s not safe for a woman in this world. And that we need to create some adaptations,” said Dr. Valerie Baker.  She adds, ” Patriarchy Stress Disorder affects us all. This realization was very empowering because I realized there was nothing wrong with me. Understanding that there is nothing to fix, there is something to heal is liberating.”  Work Mission The mission behind Dr. Valerie Baker’s work is helping women create an analogy for their health, well-being, relationships and their work in the world. Her work is about healing from the inside out. “In this battle, there is no enemy. It’s not women against men but rather us all healing. And it’s about looking at the truths of the situation deeper and using tools to heal,” said Dr. Valerie Baker. Where Trauma Comes From Dr. Valerie Baker reveals that there is so much trauma in the workplace. And this is the reason why there are offices right now offering training. This is to help people understand the internal workings of the trauma that creates blind spots, biases, and factors that messes everything up. “There are so many stressors apart from the trauma that we have inherited. And there are so many stressors of being a woman in a patriarchal world,” Dr. Valerie Baker said. “We have to police ourselves all the time. And we are being policed all the time. There’s always something wrong to be found with a woman. What’s worse is the inner critic. That is a big part of how PSD manifests.” Dealing With Trauma All those voices inherited and imprinted can be vicious. Dr. Valerie Baker says it doesn’t go away or get easier the more we accomplish. Because ultimately, we can have all the accomplishments. But until we heal the trauma that makes us feel worthless, it’s going to be there. “When we heal trauma on the inside, the environment around us and the relationship with ourselves shift as well. No matter how much trauma we inherited, we can shift it in one generation. We can shift within ourselves and not pass it down anymore,” said Dr. Valerie Baker. In dealing with trauma, Dr. Valerie Baker shares a time when she had a spontaneous memory of what it was like to be a newborn baby. And what it is like to be in her mama’s womb. Recalling her past, Dr. Valerie Baker says her mom had severe anxiety. And that Dr. Valerie Baker was also allergic to absolutely everything. “I realized that level of trauma. And it brought me so much closer to my daughter. It’s a deeper moment of connection. Don’t stifle that voice. It’s your guide. If you stifle it, something is going to suffer,” Dr. Valerie Baker advises.  She adds, “When the demand exceeds our capacity, it usually overwhelms us. And it becomes traumatic. All the trauma comes from when we were little. Because we had the least sources to understand and process what was going on. Plus, we didn’t have the permission and opportunity.”   Trauma Factors Dr. Valerie Baker shares that in helping others especially adults, they usually realize situations that they would never have thought was traumatic. It stems from emotional or verbal violations of our boundaries as children and growing up which are pretty much constant. It’s traumatic because children don’t have much capacity or tools. “Our natural reaction to being scared and feeling unsafe would be to run or fight. Those emotional reactions of fight and flight are interrupted. We don’t have an opportunity to discharge,” said Dr. Valerie Baker.  She adds, “And that charge of fear and emotion gets stuck in the body. It begins to clog the energy channel. And it also happens with grief and loss. Adults have so much unprocessed grief. Because in our culture, we don’t do grief well”. Dr. Valerie Baker also says this is because there is such a limited range of emotional expression that we are allowed under patriarchy. Men are allowed to express anger and aggression. They are not allowed to express grief, nurturing, being tender or vulnerable emotions. Women, on the other hand, are not allowed to express anger. We can express nurturing and vulnerability. But expressing grief is also not okay. Finding Solutions Dr. Valerie Baker likes working with groups because it can be empowering. A good support system is essential because sometimes, there are positive emotions that are unprocessed. “Positive information has not been essential to our survival. It takes ten full seconds for us to experience a positive experience through the five senses,” said Dr. Valerie Baker.  Five-Step Jailbreak System For us to have a jailbreak, Dr. Valerie Baker says the process can be stressful. Hence, the tools that she teaches first create safety and bring down the nervous system activation. So, it feels safe and not stressful for us to create that change. Dr. Valerie Bakers also encourage people who need help to work with her so she can assist in addressing several issues that are linked to trauma. Rather than resort to anti-depressants or drugs, a mind, body and spirit resolution is useful. It’s all about helping people finally making sense of the issues that contribute to their stress or trauma.

Based on the cutting-edge scientific evidence of genetic transmission of trauma, Dr. Valerie Baker has discovered and pioneers healing Patriarchy Stress Disorder (PSD), which her clients have dubbed “the missing link” to their ultimate success, happiness, freedom, productivity, and fulfillment.

She calls PSD the invisible inner prison that keeps women from experiencing their ultimate success and happiness.  Dr. Valerie Baker holds a MEd in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College of Columbia University and a Ph.D. from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology.

310 Lyme Survivor Cures His Disease Then Helps Others Do The Same, Scott Forsgren, Mold, Histamine, Allergies, SIBO, SIFO, Candida, Parasites, EMF, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt's Kryptopyrroluria , Lyme In

Scott's site: http://betterhealthguy.com TFIM: https://forumforintegrativemedicine.org LymeLight: http://lymelightfoundation.org   Dealing With Lyme Disease Naturally http://learntruehealth.com/dealing-lyme-disease-naturally Dealing with Lyme disease naturally seems impossible, but it’s not. My returning guest Scott Forsgren had ample experience dealing with Lyme disease naturally and is now helping others do the same. And he’ll teach us how he did all that in this episode. First and foremost, Scott Forsgren says his whole journey in dealing with Lyme disease naturally was influenced by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt’s energetic testing. Scott Forsgren worked with practitioners for years that use his autonomic response testing and eventually got certified to administer the testing, too. Improving Gut Health Majority of the immune system and neurotransmitters originate in the gut. So, Scott Forsgren says the more we can optimize our G.I. health, the more we can improve our overall health. He advises to first look at diet. He believes it needs to be individualized but at the same time, remove the foods that are known to be more common stressors like gluten, cow dairy, and sugar. Scott Forsgren also recommends working with a nutritionist to find out which diet might make the most sense for someone to explore. “One that I observed helps most people dealing with Lyme disease is the low-histamine diet. It is not an easy diet to do. And it’s easier if people generally prepare their food at home rather than eat out,” said Scott Forsgren. “I see it helps reduce inflammation in people and to help with a lot of their symptoms just by changing the diet.”  He adds, “The more we can focus on reducing inflammation in general, while we are treating the underlying causes, or triggers of our health condition, the easier it is to get through that process. The less inflamed people are and the better they feel while they are being treated.”  Realities of Lyme Disease In dealing with Lyme disease naturally, you have first to understand the components of the disease. Scott Forsgren says if someone is dealing with Lyme, they probably have Bartonella and or babesia. Some other common co-infections or opportunistic infections that need to be explored as well. Again, he advises people to work with a practitioner who can start treating them with antibiotics, herbs, homeopathy or other tools. Food Sensitivity Testing Food sensitivity testing is worth exploring when you are dealing with Lyme disease naturally. This is also needed if people have very specific and unique foods that might be an issue for them. Scott Forsgren says avoiding those foods can be significant. He also says that gluten is non-negotiable on people with Lyme and mold-related issues. Furthermore, Scott Forsgren believes probably at least half, or more people would do better by eliminating cow dairy. “Avoid those things stressful to the system, which creates more inflammation and instead, incorporate foods that are as nutritionally dense as possible,” Scott Forsgren advises. “Not the prepared, processed food but getting real food into the diet. As much organic food as possible, eliminating the GMO foods and restricting the processed foods is important.”  He adds, “And then depending on whether or not people consume meat, organic grass-fed meat, pasture-raised poultry, and wild-caught seafood can be very helpful as well.”  Healthy Fats Scott Forsgren also says consuming healthy fats can help in dealing with Lyme disease naturally.  Healthy fats include butter or ghee, chia seeds, coconut oil, and olive oil. He also likes a lot of the plants and seed-based oils. What Scott Forsgren does daily is making a power shake, with high-quality protein, collagen powder, a blend of different fibers that helps not only with gut but also from a perspective of binding toxicity and supporting cell membranes. Scott Forsgren also likes to mix in these healthy fats in the form of flaxseed oil, sunflower seed oil, a tablespoon of chia seeds and organic almond milk or any nut milk.  It helps build muscle and structural integrity which is useful in overall health maintenance.  Mega SporeBiotic Mega SporeBiotic is a spore-based probiotic developed by Kiran Krishnan and Microbiomelabs. People tolerate it pretty well. Scott Forsgren says many other probiotics are a problem or an additional stressor if you have a histamine issue. “It can also help address leaky gut issues which are often a reason why we are so reactive to foods. And why we have some of the inflammation which is due to the immune system constantly being triggered by these food and other particles that are getting through the gut membrane,” said Scott Forsgren. Restore Another product Scott Forsgren recommends is Dr. Zach Bush’s Restore, which is a dietary supplement for gut health. Depending on each person’s situation, Scott Forsgren says looking at gut health will often go beyond the diet piece and the intestinal hyperpermeability piece but also into some of those microbial overgrowths, SIBO, SIFO, dysbiosis, and parasites. “The majority of our symptoms are the results of the inflammatory event that occurs — microbes for example. It’s not so much that the symptoms are from the bug. But it’s from the immune system’s reaction to those bugs that creates inflammation,” said Scott Forsgren. Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Scott Forsgren says that people may have heard of mast cell activation syndrome which is the overproduction of histamine. He says there are many other mediators besides the histamine. And this is something that has been known in the autism arena for many years. “Most people who are dealing with chronic infection, chronic toxicity, Lyme disease, and mold probably have some degree of mast cell activation and histamine-related issues,” Scott Forsgren said. “One of the primary triggers for mast cell activation is mold. Hence, it is the top thing people should look out.”  He adds, “But there are so many other triggers like parasites, Lyme disease, co-infections of Lyme disease-like Bartonella in particular. Environmental toxins like heavy metals, some medications, food, some supplements or temperature change can trigger mast cell reaction. Physical or emotional stress and electromagnetic field also trigger it as well.” Treatment Options Some practitioners might use some pharmaceutical medications like diamine oxidase. Scott Forsgren says it can be helpful for some people especially around eating time if foods trigger their mast cell issues. One product Scott Forsgren recommends is Neuroprotek from a company called Algonot. Lots of people in the autism area are familiar with that product because NeuroProtek reduces oxidative stress and inflammation. Another product that Scott Forsgren recommends is Dr. Ben Lynch’s probiotic combination. There’s also ProBiota HistaminX from seekinghealth.com, and vitamin c helpful as well. On the other hand, Beyond Balance’s Mast-Ease was formulated to support the body’s natural ability to normalize mast cell and histamine response, as well as aid in reducing inflammation. “People do find that they have an impairment. And they lose hope that they can get well. They feel as though their body is failing them in some way and not supporting them in their recovery,” said Scott Forsgren. “So, I think it’s critical to get into the gene conversation. to look at the epigenetics or what are the influencers of our genes rather than the potential for something to go wrong.” Sauna Therapy While Scott Forsgren recognizes the benefits of doing sauna sessions, he says it is essential to talk to your health practitioner to guide you. This is to make sure the timing is right, make sure they are sweating and that they got the proper support.  You must also make sure you are getting electrolytes and detoxifying well before doing saunas. “What we don’t often think about is the toxins that are getting inside the body after the sauna session is over. So, make sure your liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and extracellular matrix are all optimized,” said Scott Forsgren. EMR And EMF Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt was talking about the adverse effect of EMR and EMFs since way back 2006. However, there were a lot of skeptics then. But as the years went by, more studies show that EMFs are stressors to our cells. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt also talks about how they make molds and other organisms that are within us more aggressive or produce more biotoxins. Scott Forsgren says to be alert if you have mold from water damage in your home environment. Because the exponential increase in EMF is probably another reason why those molds now produce more toxins that influence our health. “Endogenous retroviruses that we are conceived with are not necessarily viruses that we acquire. Historically, endogenous retroviruses have not caused us problems from a health perspective. Reducing EMF exposure certainly plays a role in some of those viruses that might be stressing our system as well,” said Scott Forsgren.  He adds, “It’s not possible to eliminate EMFs. The focus has to be how to reduce our exposure. Avoid exposure when sleeping because that is when the body is regenerating, restoring and repairing. Nothing should be plugged in. Dr. Klinghardt even recommended turning off the circuit breakers to the house. And minimize use during the day.” As for choosing the right bed to sleep in, Scott Forsgren says you don’t want metal in your bed or box spring. Bottom line, the mattress should have no metal and recommends OrganicPedic.  In dealing with Lyme disease naturally and all other chronic illnesses, even blankets should be safe and free of EMFs. A good brand is Little Tree Group, which according to their website, is a company who makes EMF/EMR Protective Blankets and Bed Canopies, plus other protective products, CES Units, and Earthing Products. Dirty Electricity Scott Forsgren also advises being wary of dirty electricity which runs on electrical outlets because it creates health stress. He also recommends getting meters to measure how much dirty electricity you have in your environment. “Have a building biologist to do some thorough testing to evaluate your home. EMF sensitivity is correlated to the level of heavy metals in the body and metal toxicity,” said Scott Forsgren. “And focusing on detoxification help over time to reduce electromagnetic hypersensitivity.” Scott Forsgren also reveals that you cannot detoxify when you are constantly exposed to EMFs. So, you have to be a little bit careful about how quickly you reduce your exposures. Kryptopyrroluria Kryptopyrroluria or KPU is a condition that Dr. Kinghardt feels that probably 80% or more of people with chronic Lyme disease and similar conditions are dealing with. Scott Forsgren says this is also common in the autism population. It can be something that we inherit or induced in us by different types of traumas or chronic infection. Or it can be something that is epigenetically turned on by influences like intrauterine or birth or childhood or transgenerational traumas, etc. Scott Forsgren says white spots on fingernails is a sign of zinc deficiency. Not recalling your dreams and depression are also symptoms of KPU. KPU is a significant loss of zinc, B6, biotin, manganese, omega 6 and other nutrients. “It can also lead to higher levels of heavy metal toxicities. Addressing KPU can also help from that perspective,” said Scott Forsgren. “Slowly detox because if you come in with huge amounts of zinc, you can start releasing metals and things in the body and create an inflammatory situation.”  Scott Forsgren also recommends the brand BioPure Core-S which contains KPU supporting nutrients. SIBO There are breath tests that you can do for SIBO that look at hydrogen and methane. Scott Forsgren says the GI-MAP (GI Microbial Assay Plus) stool test and MegaSporeBiotic help in this realm. Another worthy product to try is Bio-Botanical Research Biocidin. “Unfortunately, SIBO and SIFO seem to be fairly common issues that people are experiencing. Parasites can also play a role in this GI dysbiosis,” Scott Forsgren said.  He adds, “One of the challenges with parasites is that people often think of them as third world country problems. But it’s not true. Testing for parasites is poor. So do different systems of energetic testing like autonomic response testing or Dr. Simon Yu’s acupuncture meridian assessment.” But Scott Forsgren also says but you still have to know what questions to ask your practitioner to explore the issues for your specific system. “The more broadly we can cast the net, the broader the number of things we look at, the more likely it is that people can make progress with the number of things that we talked about,” said Scott Forsgren. Furthermore, Scott Forsgren says that the broader we cast the net, the less aggressive we have to be with any one of them because we’re just taking a more holistic approach. That’s why he believes Naturopathic Doctors are a phenomenal fit for a condition like Lyme disease since they are used to looking at all of the different factors. Dental Contributors Dental issues can be a significant factor for health. Scott Forsgren believes that dental problems can be part of setting the stage for why we later develop a condition from mold or Lyme disease. He says incorrectly removing mercury amalgams can lead to a more significant health problem. And it’s the same for root canals. “Tonsils can also play a big role. A little bit different from the dental piece. But it’s not uncommon for people to have tonsil issues,” Scott Forsgren said.  He adds, “People dealing with chronic Lyme disease and similar conditions do have some really good oral health program in place. When we reduce the burden of microbes in the oral cavity, we are also reducing stress on the rest of the body.” PANDA Scott Forsgren says PANDA is where Lyme disease might have been 10 to 15 years ago concerning acceptance and awareness. It stands for Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal Infections. PANDA is a condition affecting a small group of children and results in a sudden and abrupt onset of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) symptoms. But Scott Forsgren doesn’t see PANDAS or PANS similar to autism, chronic Lyme disease or Alzheimers. He feels it’s more associated with chronic infections, chronic toxicity and the environment which we live. Because we have so many things that are just not supportive of our health. “Eventually we’ll see that there a lot of the same underlying factors. And the presentation tends to depend a lot on the age in which we encounter these things. It also depends on whether or not we’ve already neurologically developed or not,” said Scott Forsgren.  Lastly, he adds, “I definitely would not trade my experience because it has brought me to my purpose and passion. And the thing that excites me about is waking up every day and be able to help someone else that’s going through a similar journey. It’s really fun for me to be a part of seeing people make progress in their journey.”  Bio Scott Forsgren, FDN-P is a health coach, blogger, podcaster, health writer, and advocate. He is the editor and founder of BetterHealthGuy.com, where he shares his 21-year journey through the world of Lyme disease, mold illness, and the myriad of factors that chronic illness often entails.

309 A Different Perspective On Health, The Joyful Vegan’s Guide to Life, The Joy of Vegan Baking, The Vegan Table, Color Me Vegan, and The 30-Day Vegan Challenge, Plant-Based Diet and Lifestyle Author

http://www.colleenpatrickgoudreau.com WEBSITE http://www.colleenpatrickgoudreau.com/books/ BOOKS http://www.compassioninactionconference.com CONFERENCE   Vegan Lifestyle http://learntruehealth.com/vegan-lifestyle The vegan lifestyle is something more people are looking into. There have been so many positive testimonials from those who transitioned into a plant-based diet. People are starting, but some remain hesitant. To educate us more about how to live a vegan lifestyle, I’d invited Lifestyle Author and Activist Colleen Patrick-Goudreau in this episode. Long Journey Colleen Patrick-Goudreau shares that her journey to being vegan happened as a by-product of her passion and interest, as well as experiencing the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. She says it’s been a journey of 25 years starting with growing on the east coast in New Jersey. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau was a typical kid eating the standard American diet. But she also loved animals and was fortunate that her parents supported her compassion. Growing older, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau became more concerned about eating animals. She loved meat, but she didn’t know what was involved until she was 19 or 20 years old and was working in a bookstore. Eyeopener Working in a bookstore was an eyeopener for Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. She learned new things and was interested in health and wellness. One particular book, the Diet for a New America book by John Robbins from the ice cream empire impacted Colleen Patrick-Goudreau the most. “My father owned a franchise, so I had an affiliation. It woke me up to realize what I was consuming. So, I stopped eating land animals. I ate products that I thought weren’t contributing harm. But I continued to eat dairy and eggs,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau recalls.  Becoming Vegan Colleen Patrick-Goudreau eventually realized there was no difference between meat, dairy, and eggs, so she became vegan. She declared that she didn’t set out to become anything. But she didn’t want to contribute to harm. “And there was the thing called vegan. I didn’t know what it even meant,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “What I like to say is that I need to become vegan as much as I removed the blocks to the compassion that has been inside me all along.”  She adds, “And as a natural advocate, I wanted something related to animal advocacy, writing, outreach, and education. So I started raising awareness and turned into the career that I built.”  The 30-Day Vegan Challenge Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says that if you are thinking of transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, the 30-Day Vegan Challenge is a good book to start. She says everyone claims they don’t eat a lot of meat, dairy, and eggs. But you don’t know how much you eat until you stop. “So, the idea behind it is to stop long enough to undo those old habits and learn new habits. Build the foundation. This is a fundamental handbook in making the transition,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “There is a lot to gain when you stop something completely. You are more open to making changes that have an impact which you can continue implementing.” Is The Vegan Lifestyle Healthy? Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says you can eat any way you want within the vegan spectrum. Because vegan means you’re just not eating animal products. She says there are so many variations within this thing called vegan. There’s not one way to do it. And there’s not one way to eat. “Eliminating meat, dairy and eggs is the best thing we can do and eating nutrient-dense foods as we can. The nutrients we need are plant-based. There is not one nutrient we need that is animal-based,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “The only nutrient we need that is not plant-based is vitamin B12. But it’s not animal-based either because it grows on bacteria. So, the idea that we have to go through an animal to get to the nutrient that the animals get because they eat plants is misguided.” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau further explains that therefore, we need to skip the middle animal and go directly to the plant to get the nutrients we need. And when we do, we get the vitamins, minerals, fiber, folate, phytochemicals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. Plus, we skip all of the substances we know that contribute to these preventable diseases.  Vegan Belief System Vegan authors, nutritionists, doctors are often accused of being biased and not credible because they are vegan. So, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says we have to get away from this notion that somehow eating animal products is neutral behavior and not biased. “We all have biases. Everything we do has a bias. It’s been shaped by our families and our cultures,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau also explains that when we are fighting to hang on to a particular belief, especially when a belief is a conflict, it compels people to throw out the facts. They disregard the evidence and science that backs up the fact that eating meat, dairy and eggs are problematic for our health, for the animals and the earth. “We all eat processed food. Eating food in their whole state as much as possible is the best thing we can do. But it doesn’t mean that everything that goes on in that spectrum towards more processed food is always bad,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau said. Color Me Vegan Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s Color Me Vegan book encourages people to eat by color. Because when color is your guide, you are eating a huge variety of foods. And you’re getting so many vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and phytonutrients. “All of the phytonutrients are in color. You can name the phytonutrients based on their color. And those colors in the phytonutrients affect different organs in our body,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “Nutrient deficiencies are not only in vegans and vegetarians. A lot of it has to do where we are getting the nutrients from and not absorbing it well. We also have to make sure we are not depleting our body of the nutrients.” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau cites iron for instance. She says one way to increase iron is by eating it with vitamin c rich foods and don’t have caffeine with meals. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says we also all need Vitamin D. And the best source is from the sun. But you can also take multi-vitamin as insurance. Switching From Meat To Plant-Based There are more calories in fat than there are in protein and carbohydrates. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says there’s a lot of fat in animal products. You may feel hungrier at the end of that second meal because you are eating fewer calories. “The answer to when you’re hungry is to eat. But what is great about eating fewer calories, people naturally tend to lose weight,” explains Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “If you’re hungry and you need more food, fill yourself up with really nutrient-dense colorful, healthful foods.”  She adds, “There are differences when you eat plant-based foods, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad or inferior. It’s just different. People have to learn to recalibrate what it means to feel full or how much food you’re eating. We’re so attached to what a meal looks like. So there a notion that if you remove the meat or main dish, that it’s a blank hole.” Hence the incomplete meal. That’s why Colleen Patrick-Goudreau advises people to rethink what the plate looks like and permit yourself to plate your foods differently. “A lot of it has to do with the focal point. We can create a beautiful focal point on our plate without the meat,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau said. “So, a lot of it has to do with changing our minds. Not just changing our habits and choices we make. It’s not meat we crave. But rather we do crave fat, salt, flavor, the familiarity of dimensions and texture.” The Vegan Table Book The Vegan Table Book is based on recipes that Colleen Patrick-Goudreau taught for ten years in her cooking classes. She says recipes are not so different from those you are already familiar with. Taking it out of the box called vegan makes it so much more familiar. “My recipes are very much based on familiar ingredients. No need to go to a specialty store. It can be found in the regular grocery stores,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. “I also talk about plating our food. People also need to know what do you pair things with. The book is segregated into making meals for different occasions.” Eating Beans Colleen Patrick-Goudreau also encourages people to recalibrate how much time they think they should spend in the kitchen. Because right now, she says our threshold is zero. “We’re so used to fast food, packaged food, and processed food. Invest in a pressure cooker. I make a lot of soups and bean dishes because I love my pressure cooker so much. Cook beans from scratch because they are more flavorful,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “There is sugar in the beans that people can have a hard time digesting. That’s why people get gas, cramps and bloating. Bean-zyme puts an enzyme into your body that enables you to digest those sugars and reduce gas and cramping.” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau also explains that as you eat beans, your body becomes more accustomed to eating beans. And you start to have less gas. She also suggests to plan your meals ahead of time and reduce wastes. “When you get meat, dairy, and eggs out of your diet, your palate is also so much more sensitive to subtle flavors. But when they are coated with fat and salt, our palate can’t recognize and appreciate the subtle flavors,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “There is protein in all plant-foods. Protein is made up of amino acids. And amino acids are in all foods. Our bodies don’t care where we are getting those amino acids from. It does care in the sense that there’s a lot of evidence regarding the adverse effects of animal proteins.” Joyful Vegan Book Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says this book is perfect for teaching people everything they need to stay vegan in a world that wants you to eat meat dairy and eggs. The book focuses on the social aspects. It teaches you to re-examine where you came from, and what you were taught. “Food is the easy part. A lot of struggle for most people has to do with the social aspect,” Colleen Patrick-Goudreau said. “The book is about what happens after you turned vegan. There are common threads even if details or experiences may be different. You see the world through a different lens regarding what you know now.” Stages Of Turning Vegan In her Joyful Vegan Book, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau identified what she called the ten stages of what happens when you stop eating meat, dairy, and eggs. First is the voracious consumption of information. You validate everything you learn. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, therefore, teaches you how to move through this stage, so you don’t get stuck. She also talks about self-care in the book. Another vital stage is dealing with remorse and guilt. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau says it’s more of remorse than guilt. “The biggest mistake people make is they think being vegan is an end. They think that’s the goal when really, it’s a means to an end.  If you understand that being vegan is a means to reach your goals, you can then relax,” said Colleen Patrick-Goudreau.  She adds, “It’s about understanding that it’s not about perfection. But rather it is about reflecting your values. It’s an imperfect world, and you’ll never be able to do it perfectly. But anything you do that’s moving in that direction is good.” Some other essential stages include a sense of community. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau advises finding like-minded people. She believes communication is also necessary for you to say your truth.

Try 5 samples for only one dollar: http://DollarPainCream.com PainKillerAwareness.org Real Time Pain Relief http://learntruehealth.com/real-time-pain-relief Real Time Pain Relief products have helped thousands of people to address their pain issues. I have personally experienced it that’s why I’m so excited to have Real Time Pain Relief founder Tim Flatt on the show to explain more about this revolutionary product. How It All Began The company behind Real Time Pain Relief is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Tim Flatt recalled that way back in 1998; there was a report by the Institute of Medicine where it discussed the side effects of over-the-counter-drugs and prescriptions for painkillers. Tim Flatt personally witnessed it while he was coaching a junior high basketball team back then. He noticed boys as young as 13 to 14 years old popping painkiller pills, and that impacted him a lot. Those pills affect the kidneys and cause intestinal bleeding. Something Needed To Be Done Tim Flatt felt the urgency to address the problem. So, the concept ingredient-based therapy was formed with Tim Flatt teaming up with a doctor and a chemist. After three to four tries in the laboratory, they began giving away their product to kids.  When it clicked, Tim Flatt and his team decided to start selling the product to other people. Product Expansion According to Tim Flatt, word of mouth was the most powerful part of his journey. They initially just planned on being in the sports market but what happened in the next five to seven years was not a business for them but more of a passion. “We looked at our demographics and ended up being predominately for people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s using it for arthritis. The market demanded it moves that way. Our goal was to provide a way for people to try it first and see the results and make the purchase,” said Tim Flatt. They initially promoted their Real Time Pain Relief product line in fairs and marathons. It was a home business at first, but Tim Flatt and his team called it to leverage wholesale marketing. Leverage wholesale marketing was a little different from network marketing because the focus was on selling products. Tim Flatt did that for seven years and always planned that it would be a temporary part of their business.  Business Shift In 2017, Tim Flatt converted the business to a wholesale rewards program. He says a lot of the people who were part of his home business, continued to be vendors in their program. “We have never had one complaint of side effect using our product in 20 years. Because we’re committed to the use of menthol at a much lower level than most companies,” Tim Flatt said.  He adds, “Most companies believe that one way to stop the pain is to mask it and to freeze the pain. We believe that it shouldn’t be that way. Hence, we use only a maximum of one and a half percent of menthol in our products.” Product Ingredients Tim Flatt explains that when you start using products that are 3, 5, 8, or 12 % menthol, it causes a dependency on painkillers. That’s how people move up to the prescription levels. So, there is indeed a significant danger. “For people in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, we saw the results when they started using our product,” Tim Flatt shares. “Before using our product, they stopped doing what they loved to do because the pain was just too much. It’s exciting to help people get their lives back.” Real Time Pain Relief products are effective in addressing so many pain issues. Among these are inflammation, migraine, insomnia, headaches, muscle, and joint pain.  It is also useful in treating eczema, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. PainkillerAwareness.org Tim Flatt regards PainkillerAwareness.org as his passion project. The month of December is PainKiller Awareness Month, so there’ll be a lot of posted information on painkillers throughout the whole month. “In 1998, there was a report revealing that almost a hundred million people were living in chronic pain,” shares Tim Flatt. “The report stated that during the year, a hundred thousand people are hospitalized for intestinal bleeding. And 16,000 of those people don’t come out of the hospital.” So, in 2012, Tim Flatt and his team decided to put out a website called PainKillerAwareness.org. He says they did some good, but at the same time, Tim Flatt admits they had the wrong philosophy. Some immediate questions of the group were: Why were doctors were writing out prescriptions for opioids? Why does the government not protect us? Why do drug companies produce lethal doses are available over-the-counter? Why are there three drug lobbyists in Washington, D.C. for every member of Congress? “In 2013, it fueled our fire because the Institute of Medicine came out with another report, which was a follow up 15 years later,” said Tim Flatt. “Instead of doing a new study on the people that were going to the hospital and dying, they took the same report with the same numbers 15 years later.”  He adds, “We decided that we needed to take a different approach. So, we created a Painkiller Awareness month. We picked December because there was no other major awareness month through that time frame.” Moving Forward This year, Tim Flatt is focusing on helping people take responsibility by knowledge and through knowledge for what they are taking. Because he says, only you can make a difference in your health. And you can make a difference if you know what you’re doing. If you are on pain meds, Tim Flatt says the most important thing is to get an exit plan. He shares that in fact, there was a study wherein six universities were involved in the research. In that study, more than half the people who have taken opioids along with topical pain relief eventually eliminated the opioids.  “When we see someone, who is struggling with mobility, we get excited. Because we know that our product can have a dramatic difference in a short period if they apply it on a regular basis,” Tin Flatt said. “Once they start moving, we know that the blood flow in the body helps a lot as well. And those are great success stories.” There have been many great testimonials over the years. Some of them claim to sleep better and go back doing the things they used to do after using Real Time Pain Relief products. Pain Cream For A Dollar When you link to Dollar Pain Cream, you get a sample Real Time Pain Relief.  Shipping is even free! That’s how much Tim Flatt can vouch for the effectiveness of his product. The pain cream lists 17 different ingredients which all help to decrease inflammation and pain in the body. There is currently a recent product with more than 17 ingredients because it contains hemp. “We had 9 in our original product. And then through the years, we added. When you sell a topical pain relief, the FDA does not allow you to make any claims about fighting inflammation. But we use 14 ingredients that are known to fight inflammation,” Tim Flatt said.  He adds, “For the most recent one, we started using wasabi extract. It sounds hot, but there is no heat to it at all. The main focus for us right now is to see what is out there, investigate, and test.”  Other Products There are more amazing products under the Real Time Pain Relief line. For the foot cream, the company added tea tree oil. This is because a lot of people have fungus. Hence, it functions more like a moisturizer and helps address cracked skin. “A lot of people use foot cream on the back because it feels a little bit stronger than pain cream. It can be used anywhere,” said Tim Flatt. “A lot of people like to layer our product. We don’t have any scientific proof that this works differently. It all comes down to what your body reacts to.”  He adds, “The FDA does allow us to say it relieves pain for arthritis. There are around 160 diff types of arthritis. The state of California recognizes fibromyalgia as a type of arthritis. So, we are free to talk about any arthritis.” Another product is the eczema cream which recently just came out and has hemp oil as well. However, Tim Flatt says their bestseller is a product called Maxx. Maxx contains a CBD extract. It is an isolate that has a 0.0% THC and comes from industrial hemp.  “Our hemp oil product is the only product that is federally legal for pain relief. And almost all products contain MSM, which is a plant-based painkiller,” Tim Flatt said. “Our four main products are the hemp, Maxx, pain cream, and foot cream. And our medicated lip balm is fantastic for alleviating pain and cracks.” Real Time Pain Relief products are primarily available in the United States. It is available also on Amazon Canada.  Making it available on Amazon UK is currently in the works as well as shipping their products to more countries.  For more information about their products, do check out their website.  Bio Tim Flatt is the Executive Director of National Christian HomeSchool Championships and founder of Real Time Pain Relief.

307 Healing Your Metabolism, Thyroid Function, Liver Health, Hashimoto's, Graves Disease, Integrative Health, The Metabolism Reset Diet, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Thyroid Disease, Naturopathic End

The Metabolism Reset Diet: Repair Your Liver, Stop Storing Fat, and Lose Weight Naturally https://amzn.to/2OIwYSS www.drchristianson.com Book - Metabolism Reset Diet   Metabolism Reset Diet http://learntruehealth.com/metabolism-reset-diet As a result, Dr. Alan Christianson became obese. According to him, his social life was most affected. Rather than go out, Dr. Alan Christianson spent time reading health books. He was also figuring out ideas on being deliberate about lifestyle. Hence, he was able to make radical changes.  Making A Change From the advice of those books, Dr. Alan Christianson’s first steps were cutting out bread with meals and processed sugar. He started taking protein shakes on a regular basis. Then he started exercising. He signed up for football one time, but he blacked out on the first day of practice. So, he took it slowly like running and doing weights. “How your body works and how your health was can be one of the biggest factors for whether or not you can be happy and fulfilled. I had seen some doctors about health issues and weight as well nothing was helpful,” shares Dr. Alan Christianson.  He adds, “That’s why I wanted to get into healthcare and medicine. I learned about the Naturopathic profession later in my studies. There were new schools in Arizona, and it was the perfect fit.” Seeing The Difference Dr. Alan Christianson saw a lot of differences between conventional and natural medicine. There was a big rift between conventional thyroid care and other alternative models. “I saw many examples in which the alternative models would help a lot, and some did not. It impressed upon me that there were these hormones that were just huge factors as an intersection between lifestyle and health,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “They were off in some ways. A lot of the struggles that people had were struggles like I had myself.”  He adds, “But the things that I would have just done or that I did do wouldn’t always make a difference for them. Unless they had their hormones corrected and back to a good place. So, it just became a calling for me.”  Hashimoto’s Disease Hashimoto’s is a disease in which the immune system breaks down some essential structural components of the thyroid. And leaves it just unable to produce enough hormones. “About 26% of the time, Hashimoto’s goes away. It completely stops by itself and reverses. And a person who experiences that has a higher risk of developing other versions of thyroid disease over time. But for many of them, they’re done with it,” Dr. Alan Christianson said. Graves’ Disease On the other hand, Dr. Alan Christianson says Graves’ disease is like a short circuit on a doorbell. It’s also an immune attack. “The thyroid is always opening the door and pouring our hormones even if your body quit asking for it a long time ago. It ends up producing too much thyroid hormone,” explains Dr. Alan Christianson. “And the part that’s not intuitive is that it’s almost the same disease like Hashimoto’s. They’re so close to each other in terms of what gives rise to them and a lot of steps on how to treat it.”  He adds,” Graves has a much higher rate of remission once you can pull someone out of the thyroid being overactive. So, once you can stabilize your hormone levels, about 95% of the time, Graves’ disease quits within about 12 months.”  Dr. Alan Christianson also says that despite the similarities of Hashimoto’s and Graves, they’re often different on how they play out their symptoms. And they overlap. A lot of people have both of those conditions.  Blood Markers And Tests Blood markers are useful and are useful tools. But Dr. Alan Christianson says the main drawback about them is that we’ve got these reference ranges which come from just averaging the scores from people who get their test done. “Other tests or markers are just population averages. You can cut off points to where you exclude two and a half percent that defines a normal just statistically. And that’s where the high and low ranges come from for thyroid markers,” said Dr. Alan Christianson.  He adds, “And the drawback about that approach is most people who get thyroid tests have thyroid problems. That’s why they are being tested. Many of them are already on treatment. And once you get tested, the most who are on treatment are not stable.”  Analyzing Results Dr. Alan Christianson reveals that people who have healthy thyroid scores contribute less towards that averages. And the standard becomes more represented among those who have thyroid disease. So, the implication is, you have to be at an unusual level to get flagged in that context. “If you look at a couple of different values for the thyroid, the main one is called TSH which is your brain telling your thyroid to work. So, what happens is that the healthy people have much lower TSH scores than people who have thyroid disease,” Dr. Alan Christianson said.  Regarding numbers, Dr. Alan Christianson says between .4 and 4.5 is normal. But there have been studies done in people who don’t have thyroid problems. Those tests show that they don’t have scores above 1.9. And according to Dr. Alan Christianson, that is a little unusual. “They also don’t have low scores. Many say that it’s okay to be below normal or to take medication to make the TSH low and that’s dangerous,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “Another pitfall is that there is an antibody test that can show if there is an attack against your thyroid. And if that’s there, it completely confirms Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease.” In the case of Graves’ disease, Dr. Alan Christianson says only about 0.3% of people with Graves’ disease do not have measurable antibodies. Hence, it’s a pretty good correlation. But with Hashimoto’s, it’s not like that. About half the people with Hashimoto’s do not have measurable antibodies. Important Components His core health issue was Dr. Alan Christianson’s main focus when he was younger. He recalls it resurfacing a few times during adulthood. Now that he is in the medical profession, Dr. Alan Christianson makes it a point to always ask his audience about their significant needs. According to him, there are three things we try to line up– energy level, weight, and appetite. And it is vital that we have to control all of those components. Dr. Alan Christianson believes that people have different ideas on what healthy diets are. Everyone knows if they do something extreme, they will lose weight. They do things ranging from cut out all animal foods, eat non-paleo foods, or go on a ketogenic diet. But most of the time, it doesn’t last. Because we end up not feeling well and our energy tanks in the short-term. Most of the time, our appetite also goes out of control. Ultimately, the trick is how you can balance out your energy, appetite, and weight again. Liver Health Dr. Alan Christianson says the main glitch that’s out of place for most people is the liver function. None of us get exactly the amount of food we need for a given day. We always get a little bit more or a little bit less. It’s never precise. And when we’re healthy, it’s our liver that buffers all that. “If your food intake is above your needs, your liver can’t easily store that. It stores it as toxic fat inside the organs,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “On the other hand, if you had too little food intake for the day, your body will crash. Your food cravings will show up; you’ll have brain fog and many other consequences. The liver is a big part of how you regain that.” The Metabolism Reset Diet The program where Dr. Alan Christianson applied the metabolism reset diet was initially for reversing type 2 diabetes. He learned that as people were developing this condition, the liver gets clogged with fuel that we can’t hold anymore. And that’s why blood sugar is higher. It was making blood sugar out of their liver as they were sleeping. Dr. Alan Christianson says there are some specialized tests where you can tell which part of someone’s blood sugar came from the liver and which parts came from a recent meal. Most people who have diabetes risks will also have high blood sugar after a meal. But when you break it down like that, Dr. Alan Christianson says almost all the blood sugar comes from the liver and not from the meal. “But the liver is a very resilient organ. In theory, you can lose 80% of it, and it can grow back again. It’s not so much about the goal to have a diet that makes you continue to lose weight. And it’s important and helpful to do so, but it’s a strain on the body,” Dr. Alan Christianson said. He adds, if you go longer than six weeks, you can start harming thyroid function and impairing metabolism. So, it’s not good to be in a weight loss mode for too long. Plus, it’s essential to have adequate amounts of protein during that phase.” Ketogenic Diet As for the ketogenic diet, Dr. Alan Christianson explains that anytime you’re at a deficit of fuel, your body will convert a little bit into ketones. And it’s been a debate about whether the ketones are helpful or if they just happened to be around while other positive things are happening around the body. Ketogenic refers to a state in which the body can only make ketones because it got so little proteins and carbohydrates coming in. In that case, Dr. Alan Christianson says that’s a separate variable than being in a state that could cause loss of weight or loss of body fat. So, you gain weight when you’re ketogenic, and you can lose weight when you’re not. It’s all a matter of total fuel intake. Recommended Diet Program Dr. Alan Christianson got a bias towards plant proteins. A big one is because of the ph effects. He believes that when our body goes through a detox phase and pulls out old wastes from the liver, there’s a lot of things that can concentrate like uric acid. But if there’s also a substantial ph challenge, then there’s a considerable risk for things like gout or gallstones. So, Dr. Alan Christianson says it’s essential for the body not to have many acids to clear. “There are three main parts to the program like two shakes in one meal. I do strongly encourage vegetable protein for the shakes,” Dr. Alan Christianson suggested.  He adds, “Phytonutrients are phytotoxins. They’re actually poisons, but the amount they get in food can be strategic. And they can actually make the liver work better in ways it can be useful.” Resistant Starch There’s also a lot of resistant starch in Dr. Alan Christianson’s diet program. He believes resistant starch does an excellent job in helping the liver have less strain from the intestinal tract. Plus, resistant starch is the best side of carbohydrates and fiber but the worse of neither. “The best part about carbs is that you can fuel the body and create healthy blood sugar from that and the negative part is that you need hormones to manage it,” said Dr. Alan Christianson. “And the best side of fiber is that you can fuel good bacteria, but the bad part is that it can cause mineral malabsorption. It can also create imbalances in bacteria.” He adds, “The cool thing about resistant starch is that you got fuel and you can make it into glucose. But unlike every other food, it’s not absorbent in small intestines. It only absorbs gradually in the large intestines.” Dr. Alan Christianson says you can get resistant starch from regular white potatoes when they are boiled. The same goes for white beans and bananas. With bananas, however, once it is ripened, you lose a lot of resistant starch. There are also supplements for you to be able to get the recommended daily requirement for resistant starch. But Dr. Alan Christianson says it is better to get it from food. And remember to go slow and check how you feel whenever you eat something. There have been many success stories of people who tried Dr. Alan Christianson’s diet program. Many had weight loss, but waist loss was dramatic. Dr. Alan Christianson shares that many people have waist loss of about 2. 5 inches within 28 days. Some have even reversed their health problems. The Metabolism Reset Diet Book Dr. Alan Christianson’s The Metabolism Reset Diet book contains a wealth of information on how to do this four-week cleanse naturally and effectively.

306 How To Kill Dangerous Mold Safley and Permanently in Your Home, Office and Car, Mold, Bacteria, and VOC Testing and Natural Effective Mold Mitigation, Removing Mold Odor, Green Home Solutions, Jef

http://www.greenhomesolutions.com GreenHomeSolutions.com YouTube Videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRft8D4_C6r6CkOFXoqGPaw   Molds http://learntruehealth.com/molds Molds can significantly harm our health. More often than not, we take it for granted, or we spray chemicals on it which makes the situation worse. That’s why I’m thrilled to have Green Home Solutions CEO Jeff Panella on the show because he says there’s a safe way to rid of molds and even odors naturally. Helping Others Jeff Panella shares that ever since he was a child, he has always been more about helping others. He fulfilled that passion when he had an opportunity to join the effort and initiative of creating a healthy indoor air environment through a lot of different avenues. “I quickly learned that although I do like to make money and I like to have a career, I was interested in doing more than that. When I realized I had a knack for leading people, I wanted to lead them in the right direction,” said Jeff Panella.  Personal Experience Jeff Panella shares that before joining the Green Home Solution company, his mother-in-law who was 83 years old then got very sick. He describes his mother-in-law as a very Holistic person. The following winter, she got twice as sick and got pneumonia. So, Jeff Panella called Green Home Solutions who did a pre-test at her home. Sure enough, they found the worse kinds of molds that cause migraines and respiratory issues. That situation happened four years ago, and Jeff Panella’s mother-in-law never got sick again. Because of that positive development, Jeff Panella was thrilled to join the Green Home Solutions team when the founder Russ Weldon asked him to come aboard and help grow the organization. Green Home Solutions Jeff Panella eventually worked for Russ Weldon who founded Green Home Solutions. According to Jeff Panella, Russ Weldon was a visionary because he created things and created a business that no one has done yet. Like Jeff Panella, Russ Weldon had an incredible passion for people and helping others. So together, they help people feel better by helping them with their indoor environment and live better lives. Eventually, his passion became Jeff Panella’s passion. “When he came into the company, we were actually at the time a mosquito company. We were trying to get rid the environment of mosquitoes naturally. It was very hard without using chemicals in that business,” Jeff Panella said.  Russ Weldon didn’t want to do anything with these nasty chemicals, so Jeff Panella sold out the mosquito business. Green Home Solutions then evolved over the years and offered guarantees ranging from two to four years. “About 98% of what we do is done in one day. The homeowners can be confident that when they go back into this environment, the environment is clean and sterilized,” said Jeff Panella. Franchise System Jeff Panella came aboard to continue to facilitate the passion for helping people all over the nation. Building the business was challenging but fulfilling. Jeff Panella says the great thing about their franchise system is that they have local people helping their fellow local people. “Every franchisee starts a little bit slow and testing the water. They come from all walks of life. We help them through the initial start-up phase. On the third month, franchisees are not only into testing but also remediating molds. It’s very likely they have probiotic work then also bacteria work,” Jeff Panella said.  He adds, “But on the fourth month in business, there are usually several paying clients by then. We show them how to network to different verticals like realtors and holistic doctors, etc. Ultimately, we have a business model that’s like a recipe for success.”  Serious Issue The public is now just starting to be educated about the severity of molds. According to Jeff Panella, almost every real estate transaction usually has a mold test done, including a pre-test and post-test. These tests can show the severe impact of molds on families. “This issue with molds and odors is a global issue. With the movement around conserving energy, so not they are not losing heat, we cut off the air circulation,” said Jeff Panella.  He adds, “Homes were designed to breathe. And the better they breathe, the less molds they might have. Regardless of what season it is, people can get very sick if molds are present.” My House Is Killing Me For those who want to have a good reference reading up about molds, Jeff Panella recommends the book; My House is Killing Me by Jeffrey May. The book talks about everything from molds, odors, allergen to dust mites. And Jeff Panella said it helped him to create this passion as well. Myth Busting Jeff Panella reveals that the biggest misconception is that bleach kills molds. But what happens is when you spray, the particles of molds go up into the air. He says you can wipe it dry, but the molds are going to grow back because molds grow with water. “Another thing is, you introduce another chemical into your home that doesn’t necessarily need to be there. Our products are natural plant-based products and specifically our mold product is an enzyme that eats molds until the mold is gone,” said Jeff Panella. He further explains that the enzymes break down the peptide bonds in the spores. And it cracks the shelves, turning the inside and outside into a non-allergic inert dust.  Remedy Steps Jeff Panella shares that they address molds with three main steps. First of all, they use a plant-based enzyme product to remediate the mold. Then they use a hospital-grade remediation machine product to kill nasty bacteria. The third step involves reconditioning the home. Because Jeff Panella says, the first bacteria that gets in the home will be the bacteria that grows the fastest. And you want that bacteria to be good bacteria. Jeff Panella also assures that they make sure none of the off-gases are coming up to the house. That’s why they recommend re-conditioning with probiotics long-term effects. Encapsulation Encapsulation encapsulates all of the off-gases by placing a liner very specifically installed and professionally installed through the entire crawl space. This way, Jeff Panella says none of the off-gases get into the home. “If you take care of the water intrusions and remediate the molds, molds should not come back. But if the molds come back, it’s an indication of another problem. We have several warranties, so if anything happens we can go back in,” assures Jeff Panella.  He adds, “There is no statistical data yet about probiotics preventing or killing molds. But if we keep our environment as healthy as possible with good bacteria, it’s going to prevent other bad bacteria from getting in there.” Furthermore, Jeff Panella shares that when they go in and remediate a home, they seal off different rooms and make sure they are not cross-contaminating the house. Jeff Panella also says that the kit has to be in the right place. That’s why they do a series of tests including the use of a canister that sucks in all of the environmental particles that are in the air. Only then can they determine what exactly is going on in that home.  Main Products Jeff Panella says their company has three main products: enzyme treatment, peroxide treatment, and probiotic treatment. Using these products, Green Home Solutions performs a pre and post-test in every home. “We do our protocols precisely. Following the protocols is necessary to clear all the molds. We have a 2-year guarantee. And because of our belief in probiotics, we’ll extend that guarantee to a four to five-year guarantee if you’re running probiotics regularly.” Green Home Solutions had probiotics in the system for about a year. Jeff Panella says he even tested the probiotics in his own home. He further explains that doing tests and treatments in homes, their clients who have the machines installed in their homes have a three-month cartridge. Once the cartridge runs out, Green Home Solutions can do a one-year supply. Overall, Jeff Panella claims that they have happy clients because they can feel the difference. And that means the product is working. Making A Difference Jeff Panella reveals that one of the leading causes of children missing school is asthma. And one of the leading causes of asthma is molds. So, schools are also very conscious about molds and budget concerns. “The fact that we’re fast, affordable and effective, we helped people and businesses and schools be more attracted to our concept. Joining our team creates this passion for helping people,” Jeff Panella said.  Affordable Green Home Solutions uses a third-party lab to obtain testing results. Jeff Panella says while some testing is inexpensive, it can cost up to hundreds of dollars depending on the severity of the place.  It can cost you anything from a hundred dollars to a couple hundred thousand dollars. “Where the home has the mold is also a big influence on price. And the attic is most impacted by molds. Plus, molds cause stains, but we do have peroxide products to address stain issues,” said Jeff Panella. Jeff Panella says Green Home Solutions also has odor products similar to the enzyme products that they use. The products can penetrate surfaces and address odors issues as well. Because according to Jeff Panella, odor issues are tough sometimes. And apparently, the hardest odor to deal with is cat urine. Mold Exposure Effects Ultimately, molds affect our immune system. Jeff Panella reveals that even a healthy person can feel the impact of molds, odors and other allergens. So, he says it is essential to do a full test to understand past present and future. “Molds affect people in different ways. But the reality is, the longer that someone lives with molds, odors or allergens, the more likely that cup is going to get full, and you’re going to experience issues,” said Jeff Panella. “We are out to make the world a better place and will do it one client at a time. and we’re going to continue to do that.”  Bio As CEO of Green Home Solutions, Jeff Panella is responsible for implementing the long and short-term strategic growth plans for the franchise system.  Jeff Panella brings more than 25 years of experience to his role as Chief Executive Officer of Green Home Solutions. Jeff Panella, along with his wife Joan, is very active in the community. The couple spends much of their free time volunteering and serving on boards for local charities. He also serves as a coach to several community sports teams and is active with the local Boy Scouts of America troop.  Before taking the helm at Green Home Solutions, Jeff Panella led the team at The Famous Toastery, a rapidly growing restaurant chain. His experience in multi-unit franchise sales and operations, as well as with small, medium, and Fortune 500 businesses will prove invaluable to Green Home Solutions.  Green Home Solutions has always been committed to helping franchisees succeed, and Jeff Panella fully supports that commitment. He is a Certified Franchise Executive and is passionate about ensuring that franchisees are satisfied and supported as they grow their businesses.  Jeff and Joan Panella have two children. Tim, the youngest, is a senior in college. Their daughter, Sadie, is a Sergeant in the Marines and has served three tours of duty.

And my returning guest, Cilla Whatcott is the best person to teach us how to recover from the flu naturally. 2012 Flu Vaccine Study First of all, Cilla Whatcott reveals that getting a flu shot does not have excellent odds. But it’s going to help you. She cites a 2012 study by Cowling and Fang, who learned that when you get the flu shot, it produces antibodies for that particular strain of the flu. But on the other hand, it compromises your innate arm of immunity. “So, your cell-mediated immunity becomes more vulnerable to all the other circulating viruses. While you may have current protection from the current flu, you are opening up your susceptibility to all the other viruses that are circulating,” Cilla Whatcott explains.  She adds, “All the flu report we hear on media is misleading. Flu-like viruses are out there, and they are not the flu. Getting sick and getting well is part of being healthy. It’s not ever getting sick. It’s essential to exercise our immune system.” Effect Of Vaccines As for other vaccines compromising the innate arm of the immune system, Cilla Whatcott says this is where dis-regulation takes place. When you emphasize one half of the immune system, it compromises the other side. Because ultimately, true real immunity is based on a balance. “Vaccines are intended to create inflammation. But unfortunately, it’s indiscriminate. This inflammation takes place you see a dis-regulation of the immune system,” said Cilla Whatcott. “The immune system is designed to recognize a pathogen, raise an immune response, discharge, then resolution. As the system goes through those steps, true immunity is built.”  Furthermore, Cilla Whatcott explains that when you inject a child with eight diseases at one time, you are confusing the system. Because Nature doesn’t deliver eight diseases at once. “You deliver eight diseases at once through a needle, inject it into the system instead of to the mucous membrane as Nature does, and add more stuff to inflame the immune system,” Cilla Whatcott said. “With that, the system is going to try to discharge things by raising its inflammatory response.”  Right Food Choices We have always stressed in past episodes that food can be medicine. If we eat the right kind of foods, it heals and nourishes our body significantly. Cilla Whatcott says that by having a whole food, organic diet, it’s a great way to get vitamin A. It’s in all the orange vegetables, sweet potatoes, yams, and carrots. Vitamin D is also a critical component of healing. Because these two vitamins can help your immune capabilities.  Oscillococcinum There are over-the-counter homeopathic products, and the one Cilla Whatcott recommends is Oscillococcinum. She says it works better once you start contracting the flu. But Cilla Whatcott says there are also some other homeopathic remedies that you can use. Choosing a homeopathic remedy is based on specific symptoms. She says Oscillococcinum is broader, so you can take Oscillococcinum with any symptoms. Arsenicum But you if have some gut virus, vomiting and have diarrhea, Cilla Whatcott recommends taking Arsenicum. For those who are unaware, Arsenicum is made from arsenic. “Because if you took material arsenic, you would be vomiting and have diarrhea as well as all the other symptoms, like feeling chilly and anxious,” said Cilla Whatcott. “None of our homeopathic remedies have any molecule of material substance in them. They are completely energetic. Their frequency can’t do any harm.” Aspirin Aspirin, on the other hand, was newly discovered by 1918-1919. And it was a wonder drug. Because according to Cilla Whatcott, you could give the same aspirin to many people to reduce fever. “You didn’t have to take a case. The predominant method of medicine that time in homeopathy in the early 1900s required taking the individual case,” said Cilla Whatcott. Mortality Rate When you reduce the fever for flu, it very quickly goes to the lungs. Spanish flu, in particular, goes to the lungs and people were dead in 24 hours. For allopathic medicine, the mortality rate was logged at 28%. In contrary, the homeopathic patients did not have a lot of deaths because they weren’t reducing the fever. They were treating the symptoms of the flu, and it was very successful. “The goal is not to eliminate every symptom. But rather the goal is to support the body to balance itself. Because that’s how we’re designed to find that balance. And it will, as long as you don’t start suppressing every symptom,” Cilla Whatcott said. Influenzinum Cilla Whatcott reveals that there’s a double-blind placebo-controlled study out of Brazil for Influenzinum. In the study, Influenzinum was given to six hundred children under the age of five. They found that there were no injuries, no side effects, there was a success rate reducing symptoms. The frequency of catching the flu was also less. “Influenzinum can be sold in many different ways and many different preparations. You can find it online from some places where it is typed by the actual year or season for that pill,” said Cilla Whatcott. “I like to use a combination of historical flu, bird flu, influenza A and B, plus something called Bacillinum. This combination is good every single year.” She adds, “Nothing prevents the flu 100%. We are building your natural immunity so that you are more capable of resisting things.” Homeoprophylaxis Vs. Homeopathic Remedy Classical homeopathy is based on a person’s lifestyle and living environment. Cilla Whatcott says it waits until you are sick, and gathers all the data before determining anything. “Homeoprophylaxis is given prior so that you familiarize the individual with the frequency of the disease and epidemic. And homeoprophylaxis is made from the specific pathogen that is causing that particular disease,” said Cilla Whatcott. Homeoprophylaxis is not typically measured with double-blind placebo-controlled studies. It is in long-term studies where long-term health outcomes can be determined. “This is called effectiveness instead of efficacy. Efficacy is about building antibodies. Effectiveness is about taking the long view and seeing what happens to this population over time,” Cilla Whatcott explains.  Feature Length Documentaries To know more about real immunity, Cilla Whatcott has an amazing three-part video series which you can rent from her official website. The second one called Passage is already available for a 3-day rental at $9.99. If you want to watch all three, the first one is called The Quest for Real Immunity. It covers the fear surrounding disease, reveals the relationship between humans and viruses, and provides insight into trusting your intuition. Passage to Real Immunity tackles the safe and effective alternative to vaccines called homeoprophylaxis. This part is packed with interviews with doctors who use homeoprophylaxis including Dr. Isaac Golden, a leading researcher. There are also interviews with parents talking about the wonders of homeopathy. Also watch out for the interview with Del Bigtree, an expert who speaks on listening to your intuition as a parent. The third part, Choosing Real Immunity is slated to be released in 2019. And it will focus on a variety of tools to add to your immunity resources. Effectivity of Homeoprophylaxis Cilla Whatcott says no method is 100% effective. She said the original study was done over 15 years studying 3,000 children. It found that the HP kids had more robust immunity and better long-term health outcomes than even the organic eaters. “A child going through homeoprophylaxis treatment depends on the susceptibility of the individual. Some who have greater susceptibility is probably because their ancestors had respiratory illnesses,” shares Cilla Whatcott. She adds, “So when you take homeoprophylaxis, it satisfies a certain susceptibility. You become less susceptible to catching that particular disease. Your immune system knows how to mount an immune response and address it.” Critical Vaccine Studies Book Cilla Whatcott cited a great reference for vaccines. It’s called Critical Vaccine Studies by Neil Z. Miller. The book came out in 2016. The book shows studies pointing to the fact that benign childhood diseases like measles, chicken pox, and mumps, play a role in our long-term immunity. They help prevent chronic disease, tumors, and cancers. “There are many benefits from natural disease. Natural disease is what governs herd immunity, not vaccines,” said Cilla Whatcott. “It’s when the natural disease comes through that we develop herd immunity because that gives us life-long immunity. The antibodies produced by the body does not last a lifetime that’s why they keep adding boosters to the schedule.” Family Homeopathy Care Website For those who want to sign-up for courses and look at other offerings, link to the Family Homeopathy Care Website. There is a free knowledge vault containing over a hundred documents and divided into chapters. Which you can download. You can also sign up for classes where you can access anytime once you have an account.  The course on nine remedies for the flu is worth checking out. Classes cost $12.99 and are usually in Powerpoint format. Common Remedies for Influenza and Flu-like Symptoms Cilla Whatcott says Gelsemium is for incredible weakness and fatigue, eyes half closed, and headaches. Generally speaking, homeopathy is dosed while you have the symptoms. “You give three doses, half or an hour apart. And if there is an improvement, you wait and watch because your body will move in the direction of cure,” said Cilla Whatcott. If there is no change whatsoever, Cilla Whatcott says it may be because you’re on the wrong remedy. Hence, you need to re-assess the case. Plus, if you fall asleep, that’s a great sign. Because the body heals when it’s sleeping. “Stop taking the remedy when you are 70 to 80% better. If the symptoms change, you might have to change remedies,” advises Cilla Whatcott. “Don’t touch the pellets with your fingers. Tap them on the cap and pop into your mouth. Keep them away from high heat, microwave or strong-smelling things like essentials oils because those can stop the action of the remedies.” Taking Responsibility Ultimately, Cilla Whatcott stresses that we have to take responsibility for our health. You figure it out. It’s not a knee-jerk reaction. “That requires a learning curve which not everyone wants to do, but that is what lead me to where I am now. Medical school is not teaching some of the things that I see parents learning today on their own,” said Cilla Whatcott. She also says that our body has that headache or symptom to balance things out. It’s an expression of the disease. When you take something pharmaceutical, you’re stopping that expression. “When you take homeopathy, it’s just a frequency like music, prayer and radio signals. You are not physically manipulating the physiology of the body. You are simply providing a frequency to encourage the body to do what it knows how to do,” said Cilla Whatcott. Road To Recovery Cilla Whatcott says illness comes along in our lives with a message. So, respect the illness. Take the time you need and be good to yourself. She also says that one good thing to use for recovery is cell salts. And there is a combination of all 12 cell salts called Bioplasma. Bioplasma is available via 1-800-homeopathy.com. Ideally, it is best to take Bioplasma at the end of the flu. Take Bioplasma a couple of times a day for three to five days to reboot your system. Intake one cell salt at a time, then more effective if you target it at the actual need. “My goal is to educate and empower parents to know they have choices. You’re the expert for your child. No one loves your child as you do,” said Cilla Whatcott. “Your intention is always for their good. There are no real mistakes. You’re always making choices based on what you know. So, the goal is to know all you can to make informed choices.” Bio Cilla Whatcott is a board-certified classical homeopath with a B.A. from Arizona State University, a diploma from the four-year professional program at Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy, and a Ph.D. in Homeopathy.  She is an instructor at Normandale Community College and the author of“There Is a Choice: Homeoprophylaxis,” and co-author of “The Solution – Homeoprophylaxis.” Whatcott is also the executive director of Worldwide Choice. She likewise offers individualized homeoprophylaxis programs for adults and children.  Whatcott has been a guest lecturer in France, Scotland, Ireland, Indonesia, the USA, and Canada, and featured in episode 7 of The Truth about Vaccines. She has organized and directed international conferences in 2015 and 2016 about homeoprophylaxis.  Whatcott also has published articles in several periodicals and magazines. She likewise has a certification as a CEASE therapist for reversing vaccine injury. Get Connected With Dr. Cilla Whatcott!

304 Nutritional Endocrinology, Recharging Your Energy While Balancing Your Hormones, Immune Health, Lowering Stress and Regulating Blood Sugar, HeartMath, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

How to Break Free From Fatigue with Easy Homemade Hormone Balancing Elixirs That Work Like Magic https://doctorritamarie.isrefer.com/go/BreakFree1/duffnash Brain Boost Recipes https://doctorritamarie.isrefer.com/go/BBR/duffnash "Blended Greens for Health and Longevity" Free E-book https://doctorritamarie.isrefer.com/go/BlendedGreens/duffnash   Nutritional Endocrinology http://learntruehealth.com/nutritional-endocrinology Not many people are familiar with nutritional endocrinology. And yet it’s one of the essential things to know with regards to our health. Because with nutritional endocrinology, we learn how our body works. To enlighten us on how to recharge, gain energy, balance hormones, and lower stress, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo expounds on the components of nutritional endocrinology in this episode. Personal Experience Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo describes herself as a hyper-achiever during her 20s. As a result, her health started falling apart. Going to a doctor, she was prescribed to take valium to take care of her constant headaches. Working hard after college also had its consequences. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo had to deal with chronic sinusitis and brain fog apart from her constant headaches. Initially, she didn’t know she had fatigue because she didn’t feel tired. It’s because she was drinking a lot of black tea and diet coke, which were both high in caffeine. Finding A Cure Trying to find a cure for her health issues, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo decided to get herself tested for ulcers. She went to a gastroenterologist who told her she didn’t have an ulcer. But the doctor also told Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo that because she had no idea what was wrong with her, the doctor advised Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo to keep taking the medication meant for ulcers. That made Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo think. Why would she have to take medication for a condition she didn’t have. Hence, she started questioning a lot of other things. One of them was diet. So, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo asked her doctor if her condition had to do anything with her diet. Her doctor disagreed. But Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo didn’t listen and proceeded to figure out how to change her food choices lifestyle. In the end, she did get well.  Helping Others Her heath obstacles fueled Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s desire to help others. She wanted to be the person who helps people get well and not take years to do so. Losing her parents and sister to illness strengthened Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s goal to carve a meaningful career path. Pursuing further knowledge, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo earned her Doctor of Chiropractic degree and Masters in Nutrition. Shortly after, she started her practice. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo began to a lucrative career in 1996 and was one of the few women professionals in the industry at that time. Diet Issues Realizing the food played a big part in nutritional endocrinology, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo started to eat more vegetables. She began eating salads and fresh fruits. Eventually, she also gave up milk. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also started eating whole wheat bread but then switched to whole grains. She also decreased her alcohol intake. Fasting Wanting to improve her health and learn more things, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo found a doctor in New Jersey who worked at a medical nutrition center. That doctor found that Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo had candida overgrowth. Because of the discovery, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo was advised to make significant efforts to take out sugar and alcohol from her diet. As a result, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo started to feel better after that doctor suggested fasting. Fasting changed Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s life. Ideally, proper fasting takes 28 days. Either way, before you do fasting, it’s best to get guidance from a trained professional. “Fasting depends on the person. If you are stressed, it produces more cortisol, increases blood pressure and blood sugar,” explains Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. “Do not over-exercise. Do a periodic short fast because cortisol prefers breaking down muscle.” Ideally, we are supposed to do fasting for 12 hours overnight. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says the people who advocate eating every two to three hours to keep a nice steady blood sugar are clueless. Because they don’t know the physiology and biochemistry of how the body works. “It’s the worst thing to do if you want to maintain a healthy weight. Because insulin suppresses growth hormones. It suppresses the ability to burn fat,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains. “And that’s not a good thing. So, exercise regularly. Hunger also stimulates growth hormones. You don’t have to satisfy hunger as soon as it hits.” Regulating Food Intake Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says it is dangerous to have constant access to food. It puts you in an insulin state all day long. She advises not to stretch hunger for hours because it would turn into a stress response. “Typically, if you get hungry and you can comfortably go three hours without eating, and start to lose it, start first for 15 minutes and gradually build up by trying to adapt,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. “The more you choose the way you’re eating, get rid of the processed sugary foods that cause the blood sugar roller coaster ride. Eat good healthy fats, and the body will eventually adapt beautifully.” Foundational Lifestyle Habits Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says there are foundational lifestyle habits that everybody needs to adapt and get in balance. She calls them the body freedom foundation. Because when we have these foundational lifestyle habits under control, you get the ultimate freedom in your life. First and foremost, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo advises that we have to make it fun. How much fun are you having? Most people aren’t. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo says most people who are sick are higher achievers, and they feel that fun is not a good thing. Next is restful sleep and not sleep with the tv on. She says waking up in the middle of the night is a sign that you have low blood sugar and stress. “It’s amazing how many people fall asleep with the tv on, eat right before bed, do real stress activities and expect to get a good night’s sleep. Having a clean environment is also an important factor to consider when it comes to destressing your body,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also stresses the importance of diet. It’s not just about eating a healthy diet or eating less and exercising more. There’s more to it than that. Think about how to put the best diet in place for yourself. Next is an outlet. Think about what your outlet is and if you have an optimistic outlook. Do you have a goal that you are working towards to? Is there reasoning why you want to change what you want to do? Finally, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo mentioned mindfulness. Take it one at a time. Because in most people, fasting blood sugar is the last thing to change. A lot of that is something happening overnight. Something stressful is raising the cortisol levels. We can confirm it by doing a cortisol test or saliva test, a 24-hour urine test to figure out if what you are feeling is stress-related.  Energy-Related Issues Sometimes, health issues are related to parasites. Parasites are active in laying their eggs overnight. If that happens, it keeps people awake. There is no restful sleep, and the sugar is high. Another indicator is getting up several times a night to go to the bathroom. That can contribute to high blood sugar. “The things that create energy are mitochondria. Mitochondria are in every cell in the body. And they take sugar and oxygen, come up with ATP, which is the energy currency of the cells,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains.  She adds, “When something is wrong in that mitochondria, we’re not going to create much energy. We don’t have enough of the nutrients. It can take a while to replenish nutrient deficiency. And they might not have the right amino acids which explain protein malabsorption.” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also reveals that the adrenals could be stressed out from years of stressful life. Plus, the thyroid is the thermostat for every cell. It dictates how much we are going to burn oxygen to make energy. So looking at thyroid issues is also essential. “Shallow breathing could also be creating a problem. They are not getting full oxygenation to their tissue. That could be creating the deficiencies of any of the nutrients. If someone has switched their diet, they have not replenished the nutrients that got depleted from a previous diet.” That’s why Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo trains nutritional endocrinology practitioners and other health professionals to look at the big picture. Bottom line, stress and all kinds of trauma are significant contributing factors to deteriorating health. It’s about how we look at it, how to unpack and correct them. Heartmath Shifting from sympathetic to parasympathetic and transpersonal energy healing is something Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo offers in her program. Tapping is a fantastic method to address trauma as well. “Heartmath helps people shift from stress mode to rest, digest and heal response in the body. It’s a simple process that’s been studied very scientifically from the Institute of Heartmath,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo.  She adds, “It’s a combination of deep, diaphragmatic breathing and appreciation. They measure people before and after. I recommend people do this throughout the day before each meal because it helps to digest.” Heartmath Method First, you can do this method with open or closed eyes. Place your right hand on your heart, left hand on the belly to focus attention. Take in slow, deep breaths. Hold it at the top of the breath and let it go. “If you feel like taking another breath, push a little bit further and take another long deep breath. Pay attention to your shoulders and neck, allow to soften and relax,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo said.  She adds, “Take another long, slow, deep breath. This time as you are breathing in, transport yourself in space and time where you can be appreciative. In that state of relaxation, bliss, and appreciation, you shift and change the chemicals in your body.” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo explains that at this point, hormones improve, as well as blood pressure, enzymes, immune system, and digestion. Then when you are ready, slowly open your eyes and come back to the present with the intent of bringing that back in with you. And know that anytime within that day, you can go to this place.  Food Choices Foods that are stressful to the body are foods that amplify our need for detox. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo reveals that it damages the tissues in our digestive tract. “Coffee contains acid and caffeine. It revs people up, gets them out of parasympathetic and into sympathetic. You can stress the system. Green tea is better because even if it has caffeine, it’s less than coffee. It has antioxidants that support the liver, and it’s not alkalizing,” said Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. Reducing Stress Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also says sugar and pesticides are stressful to the system. The same goes for processed food. So, it is best to reduce the toxic load to restore the adrenals to minimize the stress load. Evaluate where is the stress coming from. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo strongly recommends doing Heartmath techniques five times a day before meals, before you get out of bed in the morning and before you go to sleep. Recommended duration is 30 seconds to 2 minutes. “The adrenals need vitamin C more than any part of the body. So eat vitamin C rich foods as well as supplements. The recommended dosage is 1,000 milligrams three times a day to build adrenals,” Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo advised. Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo also recommends her energy elixirs. It can be taken via a cold or hot drink. Either way, there’s always some tea or water as a base. Blend it with some healthy fats like coconut butter or shredded coconut, hemp seeds, and add herbs. She also says medicinal mushrooms help adrenal function as well as lime or orange essential oils. Additional Resources Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo’s website is packed with great resources on how to regain optimal health naturally. Aside from an online shop, you’ll find links to her books, programs, and upcoming live events so do check it out. “My message is empowerment. Empowered self-care. Learn how your body works and how it’s all put together. And learn about lab testing so that if there are lab tests you need, learn what to ask your doctor for,” advises Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. “They don’t know about nutrition. You can’t put your health in the hands of someone else. Because you need to take charge. That’s when true health happens.”  Bio Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo is passionately committed to transforming exhausted high achievers all over the globe into high energy people who love their lives and live to their full potential.  She founded the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology so that she could be instrumental in transforming our current broken disease-management system into a true health care system where every practitioner is skilled at finding the root cause of health challenges.  Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo specializes in using the wisdom of nature married with modern scientific research restore balance to hormones with a special emphasis on thyroid, adrenal, and insulin imbalances. Her practitioner training programs empower health and nutrition professionals, including health coaches, physicians, nutritionists, nurses, and others to use functional assessments and natural therapeutics to unravel the mystery of their clients’ complex health challenges, so they become known as go-to practitioners for true healing and lasting results.  Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic with Certification in Acupuncture and is a Diplomat of the American Clinical Nutrition Board.

https://pbtinstitute.com  https://pbtinstitute.com/about-pbt/   Post Betrayal Transformation http://learntruehealth.com/post-betrayal-transformation Betrayal can leave us exhausted, fatigued, anxious because of betrayal from the past. But did you know that post betrayal transformation can help get us on the road to healing? Dr. Debi Silber has a fantastic method and will explain what post betrayal transformation is about, in this episode. Personal Experience Betrayal is the breaking a spoken or unspoken rule. Dr. Debi Silber says it comes in so many disguises. She experienced a family betrayal but didn’t learn the lesson she was supposed to learn from that experience. The betrayal from her husband led Dr. Debi Silber to pursue a PH.D. program in transpersonal psychology. Transpersonal psychology is the psychology of transformation and human potential. “I became obsessed with transformation because I needed to understand how the mind works, why we do what we do and how could I heal from this,” shares Dr. Debi Silber. “Then I did a study on how women experience betrayal, what holds them back and what helps them heal.” She adds, “We can stay in any stage for years, decades or lifetime. And if we’re going to go from that shock of betrayal to that place of transformation, we go through five proven, predictable stages.” Discovering Post Betrayal Transformation Dr. Debi Silber made two more discoveries. Because betrayal felt so different for her. Through the study and her study participants, they coined the term post betrayal transformation. Post betrayal transformation is the state achieved after this specific healing of betrayal which involves so many other things. In addition to that, there’s grieving and all the things that happened with another trauma. “And then there was the third discovery. There is a collection of symptoms. These are physical, mental and emotional. It is so common to betrayal and became known as post betrayal syndrome. So, I have a quiz to see what level you are struggling,” Dr. Debi Silber explains. She adds, “Nobody brings us to our knees like a family member or a partner. When the people you trust the most prove untrustworthy. Who do you trust? It’s so devastating on every level because a primal need is to feel safe.” Dr. Debi Silber also says that betrayal destroys any sense of safety and security that we ever had. And one of the reasons why it hurts so much is because it is intentional. It’s beyond to what we can hold in our awareness and a shock to the body and mind. But ultimately, Dr. Debi Silber says there’s a way to heal from all of it.  Study Results In the study that Dr. Debi Silber conducted, it had fourteen brave women. They contributed to the study because they felt they had learned so much from their experience. And they wanted an opportunity to share it. The first thing Dr. Debi Silber did was sharing her story with the study participants. So, they know that Dr. Debi Silber has an idea of what they have been through. The stories were so different but the pain the same. And the methodology or ways they chose to handle it was different. “I assumed that the people who were hit the hardest would grow the least. But the ones who were medicated grew the least. Because they couldn’t deal with it,” reveals Dr. Debi Silber. “The ones with the least amount of consequence to their betrayer grew the least. And the ones who were so afraid to surrender also grew the least. They were also the most physically sick because there wasn’t a price to pay.” She adds, “When we’re betrayed, we’re protecting our betrayer. Because we don’t want our family to feel uncomfortable or upset them. Here’s where we need the support the most, and we’re the least likely to reach out for it.” This is also why at the end of Dr. Debi Silber’s six-week program, she offers two different certification programs. One is to be a certified PBT support group host. And the other is a certified PBT practitioner. Dr. Debi Silber says every single woman in the study said she would have benefitted from support. So, Dr. Debi Silber ended up creating this support group host to benefit women who need support. It is beneficial for the host as well because nothing heals more than when we teach. Five Stages From Betrayal To Breakthrough The first is a setup stage. This is what Dr. Debi Silber saw in every single participant in the study. It’s not a blame thing or any. She says if you imagine four legs of a table, the four legs stands for emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects. “Every woman in the study were so busy prioritizing the physical and the mental. It was as if their mind was telling them what their body should do, and they were one big to-do list. Doing a whole lot of doing and not much being, turning up the thinking and turning down the doing,” said Dr. Debi Silber. She adds, “So imagine the table. If you’re strengthening only two legs of that table, the table is shaky and unstable. If you are neglecting the spiritual and the emotional, you turn down your intuition.” Stage Two Stage Two is the breakdown of the body, the mind, and the world’s view. Dr. Debi Silber describes it as having this experience, and it is imprinted on your body and mind. You ignite the stress response, and you have all kinds of physical challenges. “Your adrenals are freaking out, and you are exhausted. The immune system is down, and your gut is wrecked, and hormones are shifting, weight changes, accelerated aging. And the mind is in a complete state of chaos, confusion and overwhelm,” Dr. Debi Silber enumerated. And then there’s the breakdown of the world’s view. Dr. Debi Silber this stage is how you see the world. It’s based on your rules. These rules govern on how you manage your life. If the people you trusted have proven untrustworthy and all those rules are shattered, it’s terrifying.  Stage Three Dr. Debi Silber says if the bottom bottoms out, you would do everything you could. This is where survival instincts emerge. It is the most practical stage. She also explains that stress response is still engaged because we’re in fear. Then when we know we’re safe, you slowly move into stage four which is adjusting to a new normal. Stage Four At this stage, your old normal does not exist anymore. But Dr. Debi Silber assures that it’s going to be okay. And if you believe that it’s going to be okay, you start turning that stress response down. You stop causing destruction. And when you think you can make this work, you now have a little more bandwidth for self-care. Stage Five Dr. Debi Silber lists down healing, rebirth and a new worldview as main components of this stage. The body starts to heal. Because now you’re more interested in your self-care. “You want to nurture yourself a little bit, and you want to move because it feels good. It’s a new mind based on a new set of beliefs. You are constructing based on where you are now. And you are creating this new worldview based on your experience,” Dr. Debi Silber said. She adds, “When we get to this state of post betrayal transformation, there is so much richness and texture, strength, and wisdom coming from us. And here’s where we are truly unshakeable.” Forgiveness Dr. Debi Silber says if you feel safe and valued, and you forgive, you’ll feel better for it. You have done something that takes a lot to do. If you do not feel safe and valued, and you forgive, you’re going to feel worse. “So many people in my study forgave before they were ready. They forgave before it was a new relationship. And things did not change. If you’re looking to forgive and rebuild, there are four levels,” explains Dr. Debi Silber. Window Of Willingness The first level of forgiveness is where someone is going from the most likely, and they’re the most receptive to forgiving and release. Dr. Debi Silber says forgiveness is a huge piece when it comes to betrayal. “It involves an apology, remorse, and restitution. Here is where empathy is high, and our heart is speaking to their heart. We are just connecting and taking full responsibility,” said Dr. Debi Silber. She adds, “Next level window closes a bit because defensiveness comes up. Here is where we are making excuses. Saying the word because over and over is an indication. You may be willing to forgive, but it doesn’t feel as good as level one.” As for the next level, Dr. Debi Silber says level three has blame. She calls it the two-sided slap. Here, someone did something and then blame you for it. The fourth level is flat out denial. Dr. Debi Silber explains that this is somebody taking no responsibility for what they said or what they did. People question the justice, but Dr. Debi Silber believes truth is karma’s job, but closure is up to us. “When you do the work, there is this strength that comes through because you’re not hiding. You are so secure on who you are and who you have become. With betrayal, you get these triggers all the time,” Dr. Debi Silber said. She adds, “The person who has caused the hurt, whether they are aware of it or not, their emotions are shame. Shame is the most physically destructive emotion we have. The only way to heal it is to bring light and honor to it.” But because we don’t want to face it, we do everything we can to numb and avoid the stress. We use food, drugs, alcohol or anything because we are desperately trying to distract ourselves from ourselves. On the other end of it, the other person who has been hurt is walking around with anger and bitterness, resentment and those emotions will take you down. How Betrayal Shows Up In The Body Dr. Debi Silber says the most common thing that we see is extreme fatigue. Digestive issues are so common. And so often the adrenals tank. Your immune system gets suppressed, and you end up not being able to fight off things you usually will be ready to fight. She also reveals that we may even be eating this wonderful diet but not getting the benefit of it because we are not retaining the nutrients as well. Then we go to these wonderful health experts who are incredible in addressing issues, but we fail to see that these are symptoms coming from unhealed betrayal. Book and Workbook Dr. Debi Silber’s The Unshakable Woman: 4 Steps to Rebuilding Your Body, Mind, and Life After a Life Crisis book and workbook are to heal from any life crisis. The book is purposely very short because Dr. Debi Silber wanted to make sure people read it. On the other hand, the workbook has lots of experiential exercises. It’s a great combination and a part of the 6-week program. The betrayal book is specifically around the five stages and how to move through them. It encompasses many types of life crisis. Links to the book are available on Dr. Debi Silber’s website as well as a quiz to help you discover if you are indeed suffering from betrayal issues. Six-week program Dr. Debi Silber assures that you can start where you are. And you don’t have to be at a particular stage to start it. She walks you through the five stages with experiential exercises to move you from one stage to the next. “What I hear from people is that they feel stuck in a certain stage. And that’s what brought them into the program. They may end up spending extra time on those activities until they move,” said Dr. Debi Silber. Dr. Debi Silber offers two versions of the program. One is the home study which you can do at home, at your own time and pace. It’s so inexpensive, and anybody can access it. The other version is the next level up. It’s a live interactive component that Dr. Debi Silber has in a private Facebook group. She also adds that to be a certified Post Betrayal Transformation host or practitioner, the six-week program is a pre-requisite. You need to know the five stages and experiential exercises to move you from one stage to the next. As an added treat to Learn True Health listeners, Dr. Debi Silber is gifting one Betrayal to Breakthrough Home Study Six-Week Program to one lucky listener. It’s worth $297 so do check out the Learn True Health facebook group for details. Bio-Energetix Field Dr. Debi Silber declares that she can only heal to the extent that she knows what you are struggling with. But she also said that sometimes, we do not know things that we do not have access to. “We have this Bio-Energetix field. And what this does is that it’s like biofeedback. Through a simple scan, your biofield gets compared to what is a perfect biofield. And then it will show any distortions in your field,” Dr. Debi Silber said. Dr. Debi Silber does it every month for herself, and it’s incredible what it’s able to pick up and what it has done. Ultimately, it shows what you prioritize. “I understand how painful it is and how much it hurts. But I also know that healing, transformation and the strongest version of you are on the other side of that,” said Dr. Debi Silber.  Bio Dr. Debi Silber, President/CEO of Debi Silber Companies, LLC.

302 The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils, Homemade Medicine, Safety Tips, Essential Oil Recipes, and Home Remedies, Dr. Z, Eric Zielinski

Gain free access to everything Dr. Z spoke about today: http://learntruehealth.com/oils Dr. Z's Book: The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils https://amzn.to/2D9wN1y   Essential Oils http://learntruehealth.com/essential-oils-2 Essential oils have so many uses. Its natural components can address numerous health issues like depression, anxiety, obesity, and inflammation. To teach us how to use essential oils safely and effectively, my guest Dr. Eric Zielinski will expound on that in this episode. Early Years Dr. Eric Zielinski shares that essential oils initially weren’t part of his healing story. On the contrary, it was fasting, supplementation, nutrition, and detox. He focused on things that he needed to do to be healed of addiction to narcotics, alcohol, and smoking. Dr. Eric Zielinski also reveals that he had a spiritual transformation when he was 23 years old. His mentor at the time told him body is a temple. And that he needed to honor God by taking care of his body. “When I was a kid I always wanted to become a doctor. I was raised in urban Detroit, got a decent job, managed a bank for a while, but my heart was to help people. Then I met someone who suggested I become a chiropractor,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. Shortly after, Dr. Eric Zielinski quit a good job. He moved to Georgia with his family to pursue studies on how to become a chiropractor, so he could open up a health center. A Whole New World In school, Dr. Eric Zielinski fell in love with research. And because of the necessity to pay bills, he started writing professionally as a public health researcher. His primary tasks were writing in academic journals and ghostwriting blogs. “That’s when I got introduced to this online marketing world. One of my clients commissioned me to write a series of public health reports about essentials oils. And that’s what got me,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said. Educating People Dr. Eric Zielinski does not sell essential oils. He just educates people through his books and platforms where he can teach people the truth behind essential oils. “The one thing people need to recognize is that price does matter. Frankincense, myrrh, sandalwood, and rose are costly raw materials that require a lot of product to get a little bottle of essential oil,” explains Dr. Eric Zielinski. He says if it is cheap, chances are; the product contains synthetic ingredients. Same thing when it comes to sourcing. That’s why you can’t trust the label. “The same thing with supplements. No one is monitoring your supplement labels. That’s why my book is loaded with references from researches,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said.  He adds, “It all boils down to trust. Find out the source and what internal sourcing they have. There are no third-party governing agencies monitoring and evaluating these oils. The word therapeutic grade does not mean anything. It’s just marketing terminology. There is no standard. Ultimately, it’s about how your body responds to the product.”   Do The Research Digging deep for information goes a long way. Dr. Eric Zielinski says a company that has good quality sourcing, morals, integrity, and does the research is an ideal company. He also says most of the information online is absolute rubbish when it comes essential oils. Putting a drop of oil straight in your mouth isn’t entirely the best idea because you could burn the mucous membrane in your oral cavity. The same thing happens if you put a drop in your water. Oil and water don’t mix. Hence, you need something to combine them. “Randomized controlled trials in a sterile, clinical setting doesn’t exist in real life. Here’s the problem with research. You take people and try to isolate all variables, so you’re only testing one thing,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. Dr. Eric Zielinski believes we need more case studies. But the problem is, there has been a lot of negative response to case studies because they are called anecdotal. However, Dr. Eric Zielinski would rather have an anecdotal study than a sterilized non-clinical evaluation of what can happen to people aka randomized control trial. “It’s not that the research is doing anything wrong. But it’s what we have out there in the literature that is limited. And the limit is that we have very few human trials specifically when it comes to essential oils,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said.  He adds, “Because we don’t have big funding. We have grassroots efforts, and most researches come from overseas, like the Middle East, particularly Iran. We don’t have a lot of research from North America. And that’s a problem.” Volatile Compounds What are essential oils? Dr. Eric Zielinski says it all boils down to volatility or a volatile organic compound. That’s what essential oils are by definition. Those are the compounds that readily evaporate. “And those compounds through the steam distillation process are evaporating up. When they hit the condenser or the cooling tube, it gets to the point where it goes through. Then it re-consolidates, and you get up collecting as an essential oil,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said.  He adds, “Any particle that isn’t light enough to be evaporated and light enough to go through skin distillation is not part of the essential oil. So, when we have a tincture or extract, it contains volatile and non-volatile components. There’s a lot of things that are heavy, but they’re good. But they still don’t become an essential oil.” Doing It Naturally Dr. Eric Zielinski explains that our ancestors never used pure essential oils because they didn’t have steam distillation then. And that’s important. Because our ancestors used tinctures and extract. “By simply putting plant matter like a bunch of lavender flowers for example in a beautiful clay pot. Fill that clay pot with olive oil, let that seep for a few weeks or months,” advises Dr. Eric Zielinski. “You’re going to get a beautiful extract that includes some volatile and some non-volatile. But it all boils down into the different components that you are trying to utilize.” How We Are Designed To Be Dr. Eric Zielinski also says certain chemical compounds are just super potent in essential oils that you can’t get anywhere else. Because you can’t get the concentration. This is because the essential oil only contains a portion of what the healing plant matter contains. “Your body has been designed by God to interact with the chemicals in Nature. Not the chemicals invented in the lab,” Dr. Eric Zielinski said. “Essential oils are the essence of the plant matter that people have used to heal. They have different chemical constituency than your tinctures or extract.”  He adds, “Convenience doesn’t come without a cost. Every convenience we see on the shelf has a cost to it one way or another. If we step back and start challenging ourselves and manage our life, it is empowering.” Hand Sanitizers Dr. Eric Zielinski lessened the use of hand sanitizers. Because he believes that a little bit of dirt isn’t going to kill you. He says we have become obsessed with cleanliness. And we have become obsessed with the smell of cleanliness. “Our microbiome is 70% housed in our gut. And there is a skin microbiome that is more robust in our gut. So, we don’t need to be so obsessed. We are so far beyond the days of cholera and plagues annihilating our industrial civilization,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. If you want a hand sanitizer, Dr. Eric Zielinski says a pinch is fine. But he recommends getting a one-glass spritzer bottle. And for every one ounce of water, you want a high proof alcohol content as much as possible. One example is the 160 to 180 proof alcohol called Everclear organic grain alcohol. Dr. Eric Zielinski says just put ten drops of the alcohol and ten drops of essential oil that is wild-harvested. You can even put ten drops of aloe or 10 drops of vitamin E. And fill up the bottle with water.  “Water and oil don’t mix. So, use a high proof organic grain alcohol. If you can’t find that, use the highest proof of vodka,” advises Dr. Eric Zielinski. “It’s a minimal amount of alcohol, so it’s not going to dry your skin. And the essential oils are anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It even has aromatic benefits.”  Choosing Oils Budget-wise, Dr. Eric Zielinski says these are the oils you need for sure. Ylang-ylang, orange, peppermint, and clove. He singles out ylang-ylang, which significantly helps with anxiety related to stress. “Essential oils help the body and gives the body what it needs. Frankincense will help trigger the body to stop the blood flow to the tumor. Rosemary will bring balance to your high blood pressure. It is a hypertensive agent,” Dr. Eric Zielinski explains.  He adds, “Essential oils will bring peace and harmony to your body. If you have a disease or taking medication, you need to think twice about what you are doing. You need to think about your supplements, and even what you are eating.” Going Organic Dr. Eric Zielinski declares that he is more concerned about the end product. Same for supplements and food. Because our body’s chemistry today can be completely different tomorrow or even hour by hour. And what works for one person doesn’t mean it will work for another. You should only have positive reactions when you use essential oils and supplements. Dr. Eric Zielinski says if you apply a small amount of oil on your skin, even if it is diluted and develop a rash, pain or redness, that’s not detox. That’s an adverse reaction, either a chemical reaction or allergic reaction.

It’s packed with information that has proven to help improve your health. Celebrate Life Achieving optimal health requires some significant efforts. Dr. Eric Zielinski stresses the importance of pure water, air, good food. Make sure your home is a good haven. And get a good air purifier and water purifier. “You can live a life with clear mental capacity, with vibrant libido and energy, love and good mood even in your old age. That’s what life is supposed to be like,” said Dr. Eric Zielinski. “You’re supposed to enjoy it. We need essential oils more than our great, great grandparents did because of all the stuff out there that is fighting us and hurting us.”  He adds, “We need to celebrate the successes along the way. It’s a journey and a marathon. This isn’t a sprint. The issues plaguing your family can go away.”  Bio The author of the National Bestseller, The Healing Power of Essential Oils, Dr. Eric Zielinski has pioneered natural living and Biblical health education since 2003. Knowing what it’s like to be sick from a young age and having recovered from several chronic diseases in his early 20s, he has been on a mission to share the evidence-based approach to natural living that empowered him to regain control of his health with the world. Trained as an aromatherapist, public health researcher and chiropractor, Dr. Eric Zielinski is an accomplished researcher with several publications and conference proceedings.  Dr. Eric Zielinski and his wife started their online ministry in 2014 with DrEricZ.com to help people learn how to use natural remedies, like essential oils, safely and effectively. Now, with more 6 million visitors every year, it has rapidly become the #1 source for Biblical Health and non-branded essential oils education online.  Dr. Eric Zielinski and his family live in Atlanta with their four children.  Get Connected With Dr. Eric Zielinski!

301 The Ten Hidden Energy-Draining Toxins That Are Robbing You of Health, Damaging Your Immune System, and Creating Disease and How To Detoxify Them, The Rain Barrel Effect, Dr. Stephen Cabral

Get access to everything Dr. Cabral spoke about in our interview here: http://stephencabral.com/Ashley Listen to episode 271 with Dr. Cabral: http://learntruehealth.com/the-rain-barrel-effect   Energy-Draining Toxins http://learntruehealth.com/energy-draining-toxins Energy-Draining Toxins are often undetectable. We think our living environment is safe, but energy-draining toxins surround us. To help us identify and find solutions to dealing with energy-draining toxins, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Stephen Cabral back on the show. Dr. Stephen Cabral was my guest on episode 271, and we talked about his book, The Rain Barrel Effect. This time, we’ll talk about energy-draining toxins negatively affect our health and damages our immune system. Understanding Our Body Dr. Stephen Cabral is a board-certified Naturopathic doctor. And he looks at the underlying causes that lead to disease or symptoms. “I try to put the body into a position to heal. First, I give it what it’s missing. And try to help remove through a gentle system of what it has too much of. Then I allow the body to heal itself,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. He says that for example, if you have Hashimoto’s, your immune system is attacking the thyroid. If you have rheumatoid, it attacks the joints. These are examples of immune system imbalances. “For allergies, asthma, brain fog, fatigue and a lot of other things, we call that the TH2 immune system imbalance. And that’s the chronic inflammation with some pathogen,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said.  He adds, “Since 80% of your entire immune system lies in and around your intestines, you know that’s where to look first. The gut is going to have its immune-based system. When that happens, and it sees something there that shouldn’t be there in the bloodstream, it goes after it and creates an immune-based cascade to remove it from the body.” Dr. Stephen Cabral also explains that if you look at it over time, building up to the point that there is inflammation in our gut, it imbalances our microbiome. And our immune system has been aggravated for so long; it eventually ends up in some autoimmune-based issue.   Finding A Solution All people can be helped. Dr. Stephen Cabral assures that a solution can be found if you find out what you are deficient in as well as what your toxicities are. Hence, in his practice, Dr. Stephen Cabral helps to replace those deficiencies and remove toxicities and heavy metals and gut-based issues. “Genetics don’t honestly make that huge difference except tell you what you are susceptible to,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “Because genetics loads the gun, but the environment pulls the trigger. That’s called epigenetics. And that means your genes can be turned on and off.” Changing the Mindset Dr. Stephen Cabral spent a decade trying to get well from the age of 17 years old to 27 years old. He went to so many amazing practitioners, but it was not until he was 27 years old that Dr. Stephen Cabral met his mentor who told him he needs to work both on the mind and body. “The only people that we see are not able to heal are those people that can’t allow themselves to move in that position,” shares Dr. Stephen Cabral. “Their mind has been made up that they are someone that’s meant to be sick or a victim of their disease. You could get well even if you were struggling for years like I was.” Main Forms of Energy-Draining Toxins Dr. Stephen Cabral says there’s a lot of chemicals or energy-draining toxins that we can easily avoid, but we don’t know are there. He says the dirty dozen list are the ones that are sprayed with higher levels of glyphosate which is a form of pesticide. Those pesticides are meant not to allow bugs to eat all the crops. “But the problem is, glyphosate although shown to not be harmful at a small dosage, it hasn’t shown what it could do over time to our microbiome,” reveals Dr. Stephen Cabral. “We have a hundred trillion bacteria, and those are bugs as well. And they are good bugs. They are supposed to be there.”  He adds, “When we take enough glyphosate, that’s the time we see a lot of intestinal based damage. And the glyphosate at the same time, with the dirty dozen, can’t be washed off.” Organic Acid Test Dr. Stephen Cabral explains that it’s a semi-five biomarker. The first one looks at yeast and fungal overgrowth because there’s a lot of people right now taking probiotics.  “But the problem is if you have a small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and you’re taking probiotics, you’re adding more bacteria to a gut that’s already full of bacteria,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said. So, if anybody comes in with bloating, gas, acid reflux, constipation or loose stool, Dr. Stephen Cabral usually recommends them to have an organic acid test and a stool test. “Because if you are starting to become imbalanced in the gut microbiome and the bacteria, you’re not able to process and make the same level of B vitamins,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “If you don’t make the same level of B vitamins, you don’t deal well with stress; you don’t deal with inflammation well. And that’s when the genetics matter.” Heavy Metals Heavy metals and plastic flame retardants are top of the list of energy-draining toxins.  It is even more harmful to pregnant women. Because the toxins could pass right through the placenta, to the umbilical cord, and to the unborn child. Dr. Stephen Cabral shares that there was a study that showed ten unborn children had an average of 200 toxins in their body. The highest one had 300 toxins before they were ever born.  Cookware If you think cooking food kills the harmful bacteria, you’re wrong. Having the wrong cookware is just as dangerous. So many people still cook on aluminum foil. And Dr. Stephen Cabral says when you do that, it gets worse if there is an acid-based food. Thus, he advises avoiding using aluminum pans. Aluminum spatulas are not safe as well, so replace it with bamboo spatulas for cooking. Dr. Stephen Cabral says using ceramic, porcelain, glassware and cast iron much better choices for cookware. He also advises steering clear of non-stick cookware, processed and smoked meats because it harms the kidneys. “If it’s man-made, your body is probably not set up to be able to deal with it properly. And that’s because your body was meant to deal with everything in nature but not these 77,000 man-made chemicals. Your liver is never meant to see that level of toxins,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. Toxic Plastics BPA was a big thing around ten years ago. And if one is not careful around avoiding toxic plastics, it causes more estrogen in the body. And Dr. Stephen Cabral explains that our body would not be able to properly eliminate it in its more toxic form which is an estrogen ester. “What happens is they can build up in the liver and circulate in the bloodstream. It’s worse if you are stressed. You get lower levels of progesterone.” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. Adverse effects of toxic plastics can also cause depression, bloating, acne on the chin and jawline, lower mood, excessive facial hair growth, increase in cellulite and water retention. Dr. Stephen Cabral affirms that these have nothing to do with eating too many calories, wrong foods or not exercising enough. Dealing With Stress Dr. Stephen Cabral explains that when we are stressed, the body down regulates metabolism and produces stress hormones. It increases heart rate and overall pulse. Furthermore, it can make you experience shortness of breath, headaches, migraines, and excessive sweating. Dr. Stephen Cabral also says fasting and skipping breakfast if you are stressed is not a good idea because it drags you further into that fight or flight. “If you’re in a state of high stress, your body produces cortisol. Your body will break down its liver glycogen to make your blood sugar rise. And it does that because burning fat is a very slow oxidizing fuel,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said.  He adds, “For pregnant women, in particular, my theory is that when women are in a more a survival based state, or higher stress environment, the body automatically down regulates progesterone and may result in an irregular menstrual cycle or makes it harder to get pregnant.” Cosmetics This is not good news for makeup junkies. Because Dr. Stephen Cabral says what you put on your skin is much more dangerous. So it’s best to know the ingredients contained in the cosmetics that you use. Other Negative Effects Because of energy-draining toxins, a lot of people are putting on toxic water weight and toxic fat because their bodies are swelling. But if you start to lose weight too quickly, Dr. Stephen Cabral reveals that you can have flu-like symptoms, skin rashes and headaches. Most people also have the wrong idea about metabolism. They think that metabolism can just be altered by what you eat. But Dr. Stephen Cabral says metabolism isn’t just calories. It’s about the actual energy and movement in the body. Stool test A stool test is best to look for parasites, H-pylori, and bacterial overgrowth. These are living things. And Dr. Stephen Cabral says living things produce waste. That waste then goes into your bloodstream, and your liver has to filter all of that. “In functional medicine, detoxification is focused on the liver, not the lungs or kidneys. This is because the liver filters all the blood in your body every six minutes,” shares Dr. Stephen Cabral. Detoxification In treating patients, Dr. Stephen Cabral helps wean them off supplements and make them do a seasonal detox for seven days. Generally, he tries to follow the Eastern-based practices with state-of-the-art based protocols. “We support liver detoxification pathways. All the blood filters through the liver. That’s our safety net,” explains Dr. Stephen Cabral. “It’s going to pull everything it can into the thousands of bile duct and creates something that’s called phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification.”  He adds, “Make sure you are drinking enough water so that you can eliminate it through your urine through the kidneys. Then make sure that you can sweat and open up those sweat pathways. Exercise, sauna, and cardio are also good for the lungs.” Proper Nourishment When our body is exposed to plastic and toxic things, our body has to take these toxins from the environment and break it down. Hence, Dr. Stephen Cabral firmly recommends that it is essential to eat cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, kale, and similar green leafy vegetables. It is naturally high in amino acids that are going to allow our body to take these toxins. “You give the body more of the vitamins and more of this specific amino acids to allow phase 1 and phase 2 detox. So that your body can eliminate the waste through your gallbladder,” Dr. Stephen Cabral said.  He adds, “Phase 1 is a lot of the antioxidants, vitamin C and E, and natural vitamins. They would be all the B vitamins and folic acid.” On the other hand, glutathione is referred to as the mother anti-oxidants. Dr. Stephen Cabral says that when the liver needs to remove toxins, it looks towards glutathione. Aside from glutathione, selenium is one of the most underrated minerals including zinc. Both are necessary for the immune system, hormones, blood sugar, and thyroids. Sauna One of Dr. Stephen Cabral’s favorite recommendations to people is to have saunas. He shares that there was a recent European study showing that people who used saunas five times a week, and 19 minutes a day, decreased mortality by 42%. Cardiovascular death was reduced by 63%. Dr. Stephen Cabral recommends doing 20 minutes in the sauna at 150 plus degrees. If you have an infrared sauna, whether near or far, doing 40 to 45 minutes at a lower temperature of 110 to 140 degrees help in removing heavy metals. He also reminds everyone to keep hydrated. Mixing sea salt, lime or lemon in your water is a natural Gatorade to get your body to absorb the water better.  “The journey doesn’t stop. I’m continuing my research. And for those who haven’t found their answers yet, they are coming. I believe that,” said Dr. Stephen Cabral. “And I can’t recommend enough looking into functional medicine lab tests. It will give you concrete proof or begin protocol. Always keep moving forward. Don’t give up. The result is worth it.”  Bio After almost 20 years and over 600,000 pages of research study completed, dozens of certifications in the natural health field, over 16,000 health & fitness client sessions, and a doctoral degree in Naturopathy, Dr. Stephen Cabral’s knowledge, experience, and compassion are at the top of his field.  Dr. Stephen Cabral also spent over 5,000 hours of formal doctoral degree work, which included 2,200 hours of internships. These internships were mainly spent overseas studying the very best of natural medicine (much of which is unknown here in the US).  His internships included studying, working, and living in clinics all around the world. This intimate setting allowed Dr. Stephen Cabral to talk in depth with the patients at these clinics and listen to their struggles and path to wellness. He also got to see first hand the remarkable recoveries these people were making. Some of these internship locations included India, Sri Lanka, China, Europe, and various practices in the US.  Dr. Stephen Cabral has appeared in every type of media outlet as a national health & wellness consultant, as well as a contributor to MTV, Men’s Health, Women’s Day, Maxim, SELF, Diet.com, Nutrition Data, Conde Nast, and many others. He has also authored and co-authored four books and published over 1,100 articles.  Dr. Stephen Cabral has been hired by over 300 health clubs, wellness clinics, Holistic centers, training studios, and by other health professionals to improve their training programs and services. This allows Dr. Stephen Cabral to reach more people and hopefully improve more lives by teaching the health & fitness professionals that work directly with those in need.  Get Connected With Dr. Stephen Cabral: Official Website The Rain Barrel Effect Cabral Wellness Online Store The Cabral Concept Facebook Instagram Recommended Reading The Rain Barrel Effect   Recommended Links: Links to topics from Episode 301 Episode 133 – Truth Behind GMO – Jeffrey Smith Episode 259 – Glyphosate – Dr. Stephanie Seneff   ************************************ Become A Health Coach-Learn More About The Institute for Integrative Nutrition's Health Coaching Certification Program by checking out these four resources: 1) Integrative Nutrition's Curriculum Guide: http://geti.in/2cmUMxb 2) The IIN Curriculum Syllabus: http://geti.in/2miXTej 3) Module One of the IIN curriculum: http://geti.in/2cmWPl8 4) Get three free chapters of Joshua Rosenthal's book: http://geti.in/2cksU87 Watch my little video on how to become a Certified Health Coach! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDDnofnSldI ************************************ Do You Have Anxiety?

300 The Science and Evidence Behind CBD, Hemp, Cannabinoids, Non-THC Therapeutic Cannabis, Cannabidiol for Pain, Anxiety, Brain Health and How The Highest-Quality CBD is Made, Medterra, Jay Hartenbac

"The potential of CBD is undeniable. It’s my mission to help people learn about CBD and the second renaissance of industrial hemp in the United States." Your 15% discount code is LTH when you visit medterracbd.com MedTerraCBD.com   CBD http://learntruehealth.com/cbd When we talk about CBD or hemp, some people think it’s an illegal substance. But in fact, hemp and marijuana are different. I had fun doing this episode with Jay Hartenbach who happens to be a leader in the industry and will be explaining to us all there is to know about CBD and hemp. CBD is a legal substance. It is a safe and beautiful essence of an herb. Many benefits are attached to CBD and topping the list is its ability to support the nervous system and immune system. That’s why many states in the United States have legalized it for therapeutic reasons. Early Years Jay Hartenbach started getting into the industry with a group of friends in 2017. A college friend of his was very involved in the hemp industry and wholesale distribution. That friend was working with hemp farms in the US and abroad. And because Jay Hartenbach had experience in online marketing, that became an asset into establishing his company later on. He also had experience working on an online skin care product in graduate school and was involved in networking, website building, driving traffic and other skills. Medterra Jay Hartenbach started Medterra with the sole goal at the time of providing various manufacturers with high-quality CBD. His company established a partnership with the farm GenCanna, which was a pioneer in the hemp industry. Medterra worked with various manufacturers. During the early days, they had around 20 to 25 clients that they were supplying raw products to. “A lot of people were charging a high price for the CDB products they were selling. And we thought there might be a way to make it cheaper especially since we knew what the raw cost was. We also wanted CBD products to be more accessible,” said Jay Hartenbach. The company shipped their first product in June 2017. Within two months, they were selling in all fifty states and started getting orders internationally. “Our priority was to meet the demands of our customers which at the time were mostly family and friends,” shares Jay Hartenbach. “We have focused as just industry and educating people, making sure that they understand what they are getting.” Marijuana Vs. Hemp When we look at the cannabis plant, which encompasses both marijuana and hemp, the distinction you make between the two is the concentration of THC. Jay Hartenbach says if it has less than .3 percent THC by dry weight, it is considered as hemp. “More than .3 is marijuana. If you’re looking at it at a genealogy standpoint, they are from the same family of plants. It just the actual expressions of those genes that determine how much CBD and how much THC that they are producing,” Jay Hartenbach explains.  Choosing Hemp Jay Hartenbach says his company chose hemp plants to extract because they have a higher concentration. Plus, it is more efficient and allows them to sell nationally and internationally. They can’t derive it from marijuana. It takes a lot of processes to make a good CBD product. Jay Hartenbach narrates that upon harvest, the CBD plant begins to degrade almost immediately after it is cut down. So, Medterra’s target is within 24 hours; they have to have the biomass dried and dehydrated to very low moisture content. “A hemp plant may have 30% water by weight at the time of harvest by the time we are dehydrating it, so we can preserve CBD if it’s down to about 3%. That happens through a drying process which activates the CBD,” said Jay Hartenbach. He adds, “So, it converts to a CBDA molecule to CBD. That is very similar to the process people are familiar with where marijuana has to be activated.” Jay Hartenbach furthermore reveals that because they are aware that people want the whole plant extract, Medterra started working with another lab who developed a novel technique wherein they can remove the THC but keep everything else in there. There is no organic certified hemp or CDB in the United States. So, they have to grow it naturally, and they can’t use any synthetic pesticides. There’s a social benefit of doing it naturally. Therapeutic Effects of The Extract With the used of CBD, Jay Hartenbach affirms that the reports have been astounding. This is because he says CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory. It also affects neurological activity. Over 50% of diseases have some inflammation. Examples are arthritis, sore muscles, and sore joints. It also affects the GI tract and Chron’s disease. “By CBD helping to reduce the inflammation, it helps regulate neutrophil activity which is why we believe it helps so much with arthritis. CBD also helps with anxiety because it helps regulate the serotonin levels in the brain,” said Jay Hartenbach. Receptors Talking about the CB 1 and CB 2 receptors, Jay Hartenbach says one of the things a lot of people do not know is that our body produces cannabinoids internally. CBD can be found in high concentrations in breast milk. And that throws a lot of people off. “The compounds that we look at in hemp versus what the body produces and the way we differentiate them is wellness and endocannabinoid. That’s where the endocannabinoid system comes from,” Jay Hartenbach said. “So, if we produce it internally, if we consume it orally or apply it topically from a hemp plant, those are phytocannabinoids.” Furthermore, Jay Hartenbach says research is suggesting that potentially low concentrations of omega 3s can hint at the body producing CBD. And the other cannabinoids that interact with our endocannabinoid system which is where the phytocannabinoids supplementation is can aid us. “That’s why people see such a significant response in anxiety or arthritic issues,” said Jay Hartenbach. “There have been some concerns that CBD is not able to penetrate the skin, but we’re getting the research right now that dictate otherwise.”  Batch Testing Jay Hartenbach assures that his company tests every batch. And they test in multiple levels. Part of it is trying to adhere to the regulations. But it also has the benefit of making sure that in every stage of the process, they can have a test to go back to.  “The first place that we do is at the point level. Right now, Medterra has fields in Kentucky that are dedicated to Medterra only. We work with the farmers to cultivate the hemp plants. And we also make sure that is no heavy metal contamination,” Jay Hartenbach said. Quality Control Jay Hartenbach says hemp and cannabis plants in general, can be used to clean the soil. This is because they are so useful in absorbing nutrients around them versus a plant like tobacco. “We also make sure there is no pesticide contamination from nearby agriculture. Our product is also THC-free,” said Jay Hartenbach. “There are also no residual solvents from any of the extraction. No heavy metals were concentrated in that actual production. We also make sure there is no cross-contamination and that the dosage is right. Because we like to have control of the testing.” As far as transparency, Medterra posts result on their website. For those who wish to gather more information, Jay Hartenbach says anyone can reach out to them if they want more details. Hemp Supporter To help the hemp industry, Jay Hartenbach recommends reaching out to Hemp Supporter. It’s part of a lobbying group that works very closely with U.S. congressmen to get some of the hemp industries’ agendas push forward. “A large part of what they do is educating various individuals on the power of hemp and bringing that to life. They make it very simple to find the correct representative. The next step is getting organic certification and clarity with the FDA,” said Jay Hartenbach. Success Stories There are many success stories that Jay Hartenbach has encountered, people who benefited from his CDB oil and tincture products. He says it’s not a cure-all, but it does improve quality of life. Out of all the success stories, Jay Hartenbach singles out a good friend who was suffering from severe Parkinson’s. That friend used Medterra’s products particularly the CBD oil and tincture. And the video of that friend sent back to Jay Hartenbach was astounding. “That changed the course of this company. Understanding the right dosage was important,” said Jay Hartenbach. Moving Forward CBD oil also aids sleeps and addresses health issue of athletes. Moving forward, Medterra is currently doing clinical research for a medical university in the United States. “We’re looking into turning into a purely end consumer product company. We know CBD has this incredible potential,” Jay Hartenbach said. “And we are looking into what other herbal supplements or herbs to benefit or augment the effects of CBD.” He adds, “We’re starting to develop products where we take the effectiveness of CDB and try to find complimentary ingredients. Plus, we are trying to bring an overall understanding of the market. To achieve this, we are talking to national retailers and getting out products into the general public spotlight.” Website Jay Hartenbach has several products on his website that are worth looking into. They also sell a CBD isolate on our site. The company is also set to launch a monthly wellness supplement for women. He says it is also possible to incorporate CBD in something like a smoothie. And it’s best to explore that with a health professional.  The same goes for pregnant women who wish to take CBD oil. As a bonus, Jay Hartenbach is giving Learn True Health listeners a 15% off on his products so don’t forget to type in the discount code LTH at checkout. “If we look at our CBD tincture, we feel that we are leaders in the industry. We try to make it as affordable as possible. And we are dedicated to consistency and compliance. We have taken those same principles, applied and extended it into our retail line,” assures Jay Hartenbach.  Bio In 2016, Jay Hartenbach was contacted by his longtime friend, J.P. Larsen, who had spent the last five years distributing CBD in the US and abroad. Although the demand for CBD was growing by the day, the two recognized the lack of quality online retailers with reasonably priced CBD products.  Utilizing J.P.’s direct access to US-based industrial hemp farms and Jay Hartenbach’s marketing experience, Medterra was started. With their focus on providing consumers with the highest-quality CBD, Medterra has quickly grown to help tens of thousands of customers in all 50 states and six different countries.  Get Connected With Jay Hartenbach: Official Website Facebook Instagram Twitter Recommended links: GenCanna Hemp Supporter ************************************ Learn How To Achieve Optimal Health From Naturopathic Doctors!

299 Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms for Optimal Health, Longevity, Boosted Immune System, Healing The Gut, Cancer Fighting, Brain Function, How To Test Your Supplements For Purity and Buy or Grow Mushr

  The Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide to Growing Mushrooms at Home https://amzn.to/2QKpeRG www.nammex.com www.realmushrooms.com Redefining Medicinal Mushrooms: A new scientific screening program for active compounds in medicinal mushrooms. White Paper published in 2015   Mushrooms http://learntruehealth.com/mushrooms Mushrooms are generally known to be a delicious addition to our dishes. But did you know there’s more to mushrooms than that? Mushroom expert Jeff Chilton is our guest on this episode. He will explain how mushrooms can be used as medicine, help the body to prevent cancer, make as extracts, drink, capsules, as well as boost our immune system. Growing Up Jeff Chilton grew up in Seattle where it rains so much. He remembers during the fall season, the place where he lived had lots of mushrooms everywhere. So, he used to go on mushroom hunts when he was younger. When Jeff Chilton got into university, his field of study was not about mushrooms. Despite that, he researched the use of mushrooms in indigenous cultures worldwide as well as the use of mushrooms in shamanism. Eventually, he took courses in his college about the study of mushrooms which is ethnomycology. Working At A Farm After college, Jeff Chilton decided to work on a mushroom farm and learn how to grow mushrooms. He went to Olympia, Washington, applied for a job and eventually got a job working at a big mushroom farm.  During the next decade, he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms per year. On this farm he worked on, they had a program using specific chemicals at certain times during the crop to avoid molds attacking the mushrooms, especially with Agaricus mushrooms. Mushrooms in North America are grown indoors in huge warehouses, so it’s a monoculture. Understanding Mushrooms Jeff Chilton says mushrooms are a reproductive structure of an organism that we usually don’t see. They don’t have seeds. The mushroom will produce a spore; the spore will go out and land on the ground and germinate into a very fine thread-like filament. “Those filaments from different spores will fuse and form a network. The network is called mycelium which creates a lot of the soil out there used to grow our crops and plants. They are recyclers and important for our ecosystem,” explains Jeff Chilton. When he was working on that large farm, they put in four new crops every week. Every crop was producing 20,000 pounds of mushrooms. They had mushrooms in every stage of development. Choosing from among the various kinds of mushroom, Jeff Chilton highly recommends highly-certified organic Agaricus mushrooms in particular. There are so many other species that are good, but he says shiitake mushrooms is the one that everybody should be eating because it has so many great benefits.  Deeper Research Jeff Chilton just started to delve into the literature deeper about growing mushrooms and all the different species that could be grown. He was also learning about the medicinal benefits of mushrooms. Certain mushrooms were used in traditional Chinese medicine. From 1979 to 1983, Jeff Chilton worked with three other men. They put together mushroom conferences in the Northwest. Furthermore, the group organized two well-attended conferences in Washington State and two in Oregon. The conferences had experts from all over the country talking about how to identify mushrooms, how to cook mushrooms and Jeff Chilton spoke on how to cultivate mushrooms. A New Chapter Jeff Chilton also co-authored a book on mushroom cultivation in 1983 called The Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide of Growing Mushrooms At Home. That was the year that he finally left the mushroom farm in Olympia and started his own business. Then in 1989, Jeff Chilton made his very first trip to China for an international mushroom conference. That was also the year he established his new business, Nammex. Nammex is a business that introduced medicinal mushroom extracts in powder form to the US nutritional supplement industry. At that time, no other company thought of using a medicinal mushroom in their product line. Jeff Chilton also reveals that his company tests every batch of each product they make. Medicinal Mushrooms Jeff Chilton traveled extensively in China during the 1990’s, attending conferences and visiting research facilities and mushroom farms. He eventually saw that in Asia, farmers were growing at least 12 different mushrooms for food and more for medicinal purposes. “Medicinal mushrooms, in general, are one of the best things you can use regarding prevention. That’s why they call it the tonic herb. A tonic herb is something you can take regularly. It works on your body as a whole. It’s an herb that helps you maintain certain homeostasis. It brings harmony to our body,” said Jeff Chilton.  Mushrooms do not have a lot of calories.  According to Jeff Chilton, mushrooms are 10 to 40% protein. Button mushrooms are close to 40% protein. On the other hand, Shiitake mushrooms are 20% protein. Jeff Chilton says it has a good complement of the essential amino acids. It is also high in high-quality carbohydrates which is mostly what a mushroom is made up. Busting Myths There is an impression that an extract means that you are isolating something out of the natural product and leaving everything else behind. Jeff Chilton says that is just not true. The way Jeff Chilton’s company makes it is that they make sure the extract has the same profile as the material itself. “If you talk to people who make their extracts, they are essentially taking everything out of that plant or mushroom. And their extract will have a profile that is just the same as the actual material,” said Jeff Chilton. “Nothing is being lost if the extract is made properly. In traditional Chinese medicine, hot water extraction is how they process their herbs.” He adds, “Mushrooms are also high in fiber. They are digested more in our intestine than our stomach. In effect, mushrooms are feeding our microbiome.” Alpha-Glucan Vs. Beta Glucan Jeff Chilton says alpha glucan is starch. And a beta glucan is very different from an alpha-glucan. He says mushrooms have no starch, but they produce glycogen just like humans. Their storage carbohydrate is glycogen. Not like plants where the storage carbohydrates are starch. “Most mushrooms are 25 to 60% beta glucan. And they have no starch. But the glycogen content is somewhere around one or two percent,” shares Jeff Chilton.  Not A Quick Fix Mushrooms in general, are there to work pretty much in the background. Jeff Chilton says it’s not an instant fix at all for something. So, if you’re taking mushrooms regularly and if you’re eating mushrooms, then they’re going to go to work for you. “The top-selling mushroom supplement product in North America is myceliated grain. There’s a really interesting compound in mushrooms called ergosterol,” Jeff Chilton explains. “Ergosterol is in all fungi, and it is a pro-vitamin D2. The myceliated grain products have one-tenth the amount of ergosterol they should have. That’s because there is very little fungal matter. So basically, you’re just getting a starch supplement.” Jeff Chilton furthermore explains that mushrooms are 90% water like most vegetables. When you dry out the mushroom, the supplements are dry. They’re not fresh. “As a mushroom grower, I know the economics. Back in the 90s, I realized I couldn’t grow mushrooms in North America and sell them as supplements because it is too expensive,” said Jeff Chilton. The Best Mushrooms Jeff Chilton says China produces 85% of the world’s mushrooms. And Asia consumes so much reishi mushrooms. Reishi mushrooms from China are shipped to Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. Plus, they’re consuming a lot of it in China itself. “Mushrooms are organisms that consume agricultural waste products. Most medicinal mushrooms are wood decomposers. If you want your mushrooms to produce those compounds that are so important, they need the precursors that are in that wood,” said Jeff Chilton. Mushroom Supplements Some people may not like the bitter flavor, so Jeff Chilton says it’s better to take it in capsule form. He says in other products like reishi coffee; you will always be getting only a small amount of the actual mushroom. Because it will have other things in there that will dilute that. “To me, the reishi coffee thing is like a gimmick. I put a reishi extract in my coffee instead,” said Jeff Chilton. “Reishi also has a compound called triterpenoids. Triterpenoids are good for your liver, and it helps the liver purify your blood. Research has also shown that it can kill certain types of tumor cells.”  He adds, “Nobody out there in the industry can do true clinical trials. There’s so much information we have about any herbal product is mostly anecdotal. It’s difficult to get clinical trial information because it’s so expensive.” Jeff Chilton says there was this one study which comprised monitoring nine people. The study cost four million dollars!  Website Resources Aside from Jeff Chilton’s official website Nammex, he encourages people to join societies where they could teach you all about mushrooms. Jeff Chilton’s site includes links of mushroom articles as well as his podcast guestings. On his other website Real Mushrooms, you’ll get access to his blog and online shop as well as delicious recipes about mushrooms. “People need to look at mushrooms as this wonderful world of fungi that can be part of your life and diet, medicinal regimen. Look at it positively. Mushrooms are a fabulous kingdom of organisms that we should get more acquainted with,” said Jeff Chilton.  Bio Jeff Chilton, raised in Pacific Northwest, studied ethnomycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties. In 1973 he started work on a commercial mushroom farm in Olympia, Washington. During the next ten years, he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms per year. He was also involved in the research and development of shiitake, oyster and enoki mushrooms which resulted in the earliest US fresh Shiitake sales in 1978.  In the late seventies, Jeff Chilton was a founder of Mycomedia, which held four mushroom conferences in the Pacific Northwest. These educational conferences brought together educators and experts in mushroom identification, ethnomycology, and mushroom cultivation. During this period Jeff co-authored the highly acclaimed book, The Mushroom Cultivator, which was published in 1983.  In the 1980’s, Jeff Chilton operated a mushroom spawn business, and in 1989 he started Nammex, a business that introduced medicinal mushrooms to the US nutritional supplement industry. He traveled extensively in China during the 1990’s, attending conferences and visiting research facilities and mushroom farms. In 1997 he organized the first organic mushroom production seminar in China.  A founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products in 1994 and a Member of the International Society for Mushroom Science, Jeff Chilton’s company, was the first to offer a complete line of Certified Organic mushroom extracts to the US nutritional supplement industry. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds. Get Connected With Jeff Chilton!

297 Your Mitochondria Are The Key to Health, Fertility, Energy and Longevity, Using Herbs, Nutrition, Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine to reverse or prevent Infertility, Cancer, Diabetes, Fatigue, Dr. Wa

www.themitobook.com - book information and free download www.acuatlanta.net - online store with large selection of Chinese herbs and nutritional supplements www.acuatlanta.com Acupuncture Atlanta Clinic website to schedule a session with one of their Practitioners   Mitochondria http://learntruehealth.com/mitochondria Did you know that mitochondria hold the key to optimal health? A lot of people do not know what mitochondria are and how it affects our health. So to further explain what mitochondria are, I’m thrilled to have Dr. Warren Cargal in this episode. How It Began Back in high school, Dr. Warren Cargal was a track star. During a regional meet, he fell and ruptured one of his discs in his lower back. It led to the six months when he was in pain. But because Dr. Warren Cargal’s mother was a nurse, she diligently scheduled his doctor appointments. They went to one surgeon in particular who recommended surgery and told Dr. Warren Cargal he might lose control of his large intestine. Questioning Everything Dr. Warren Cargal’s mother wanted another option without surgery for him. Hence, she set a chiropractic appointment. During the first chiropractic session, Dr. Warren Cargal was able to stand up. After another eight sessions, he was pain-free.  “It questions our health and takes care of it. We are responsible for our health. Which means we have a responsibility to question things actively,” said Dr. Warren Cargal.   Acupuncture And Energy Dr. Warren Cargal narrates that there was an old Chinese guy down the street from him.  Doing acupuncture made Dr. Warren Cargal headaches go away for about six months. That’s why he got curious about acupuncture and decided to go into training. “The energy has always been referred to as chi. And it’s the movement of chi and blood which gives us vitality. A lot of acupuncture treatments are done to either move chi or correct if there is a deficiency in chi,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. What’s excellent about acupuncture is that the practitioner and patient really talk and spend time together. Through that, there’s some understanding that emerges about a treatment protocol. Defining Mitochondria Mitochondria are organelles. Organelles mean small bodies reside in each of your cells. They produce the energy for the cells. That energy is called ATP or adenosine triphosphate. The ATP is used by all the mechanisms in the cells to drive the functioning.  “The fundamental step where the energy is produced is by the mitochondria. And energy drives all the cellular processors,” Dr. Warren Cargal explains. “Every thought that you have and every image you see through your eyes, all those nerve impulses are all powered and driven by the ATP.” According to Dr. Warren Cargal, the other limiting issue for these organisms is the fact that they can only grow so big because they didn’t have internal structures. One time, something remarkable happened. And that something was one organism absorbed another organism for food. That allowed specialization to occur and that allowed us to be where we are today. Because we are highly specialized individuals. Dr. Warren Cargal further reveals that our whole gut system is composed of microbiomes which are bacteria. Unique Feature Mitochondria have their DNA. Dr. Warren Cargal says repeated rounds of antibiotics have profound effects on what’s happening in our gut. It can change or destroy the make-up of the gut which has significant effects like anxiety, depression, sleepiness, and immune response. “A whole microbiome also exists within our soil. And the roundup that is usually sprayed on our crops kills off some of the microbiomes in the soil,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. “When that changed microbiome is taken up by the vegetables, it affects some of the enzymes that you can produce. When we inject it, that affect us.” Dr. Warren Cargal’s Book Dr. Warren Cargal’s book is called Your Mitochondria Key to Health & Longevity. Through the book, he thoroughly explains everything you need to know about mitochondria; it’s components and how it is essential to our health and energy. He also says a skin cell might have a hundred mitochondria in it. And the heart muscle cell might have 5,000 to 8,000 mitochondria in it all producing energy 24 hours a day. A female egg has around a hundred thousand mitochondria in it. That single cell turns into a multi-million cell organism. And it needs tremendous amounts of energy to accomplish that. That energy is achieved through the mitochondria. “Most of the vitality for the offspring is inherited from the mother. All of the mitochondria are transmitted from the woman to the offspring. It’s only through the female that this energy is transmitted. Nothing is inherited from the male,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. Revving Up The Energy There are some doable steps to help us have healthy mitochondria. According to Dr. Warren Cargal, the mitochondria need oxygen. One way to have ample energy is finding ways to exercise regularly and be aware of your breathing. Dr. Warren Cargal also recommends restricting calories and also eat healthy especially healthy fats. As for meat consumption, if you can’t reduce it, at least opt for grass-fed meat. Also, increase vegetable consumption and be cautious if you plan to do intermittent fasting. “Most people’s concept of energy and production is about eating food and food going down the digestive tract, broken down in nutrients. Thinking it gives their body all the nutrients it needs. But you miss about four steps in there,” said Dr. Warren Cargal.  Cancer Dr. Warren Cargal believes that cancer is complicated. There are many factors involved because cancer requires energy. And that energy is fueled from ATP. If there is excessive consumption of carbohydrates and sugars, that’s how cancer will start obtaining that energy. “People can shift that balance through a more natural way. Consumption using the fats can slow that process down,” suggests Dr. Warren Cargal. “The nerve impulse is being driven by ATP. And there’s a high concentration of mitochondria in the brain.”  He adds, “Be aware of all the energy the brain is using and where that energy is coming from. There’s a lymphatic system in the brain, and that lymphatic system is used for clearing the debris. But it is only activated when you are sleeping. So, sleeping is an issue.” Dr. Warren Cargal also recommends considering probiotics if you had a lot of antibiotics. Because according to him, probiotics will nourish the serotonin. Website For those who want to know more about mitochondria, check out Dr. Warren Cargal’s fantastic website. You’ll find a link to his book as well as an online store that sells Chinese herbs and supplements. “People are having some issues already. They need supplements while they go through this transition period of fixing their diet,” said Dr. Warren Cargal. “The vision that we have is that people become vibrant. The aging looks different then.”  He adds, “There’s a lot of places where there’s limited dialogue. I encourage people to take note of that and have a little bit more compassion.”  Bio  Licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and clinic director at Acupuncture Atlanta, Dr. Warren Cargal is a practiced Chinese medicine for over 20 years in the fields of infertility and chronic disease conditions. He maintains an active clinical practice in Atlanta, Georgia.  Dr. Warren Cargal’s interest is in the integration of classical Chinese medicine with modern scientific study and evidence-based protocols. He’s spent hundreds of post-graduate hours in Chinese herbology, nutrition, and endocrine education. Through work at his clinic, he recognized three fundamental factors that drive aging and the age-related diseases of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer (shallow breathing, excessive consumption of calories and carbohydrates, and lack of exercise.)  Dr. Warren Cargal is the author of, Your Mitochondria: Key to Health and Longevity, which is based on the latest research on herbal isolates and nutraceuticals, presents approaches for correcting these three factors to reverse age-related diseases.

296 Ancestral Diets and the History of Food, Nutrient Dense Foods, Fusing Ancient Technologies with Modern Culinary Techniques, Foraging, Nose-to-Tail Butchering and Cooking, Fermentation, Food Evolut

1. Dr. Schindler just returned from a year-long sabbatical leave to work on a food project called: Food Evolutions - here is a link to a website with information: www.foodevolutions.org 2. Eastern Shore Food Lab at Washington College: http://www.washcoll.edu/departments/eastern-shore-food-lab/about-dr-schindler 2. Dr. Schindler's website: http://www.ancestralinsight.com/about   Ancestral Diets http://learntruehealth.com/ancestral-diets Ancestral diets contain a lot of nutrient dense foods. But the modern diet has overtaken the real essence of how food should be prepared and eaten. There is a lot to learn about how ancestral diets can benefit us. So, to expound more on the components of ancestral diets, we’re learning all of that from Dr. Bill Schindler, my guest on this episode. Connecting With Nature Dr. Bill Schindler grew up in the coast of New Jersey. He narrates that his parents worked hard to connect him with nature and outdoors like hunting, fishing, trapping, hiking and camping at a very early age. Dr. Bill Schindler didn’t take any pleasure in killing, but there was something about being a part of the entire process that drew him in at a very early age. Dr. Bill Schindler also spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking with his mother. He also battled with weight issues until high school. However, taking up wrestling was an exercise that helped Dr. Bill Schindler maintain his weight. Despite that, Dr. Bill Schindler still didn’t feel healthy and felt there was still something wrong with his diet. “I was stuck in that rut trying to figure out what I should be eating by looking at the nutritional components of food. And I would chart out my weekly diet to the gram of every single nutritional component of food that I had access to understanding,” recalls Dr. Bill Schindler.  College Years Dr. Bill Schindler continued wrestling in college. But then he also developed an eye disease called keratoconus. He went blind and ended up failing at school. It was not long before Dr. Bill Schindler had a cornea transplant. Eventually, he got back into college at the College of New Jersey and wrestled again. After college, he went further by pursuing a Masters’ and Ph.D. degree. “My journey towards health for a long time was always focused on that which I got from books and magazines, doctors and nutritionists. Nothing felt right. One thing that felt right to me was when I was a part of the entire process,” Dr. Bill Schindler said. Looking For A Deeper Connection Dr. Bill Schindler soon realized he wasn’t satisfied with purchasing a gun and ammunition for hunting. He felt there was something about it that’s too cold and distant. He wanted a deeper connection, so he focused on learning how people in the past hunted. Dr. Bill Schindler then learned how to make his bows and arrows. That led him to archaeology, particularly experimental archaeology. He also went on to teach classes at a university. “During that time, there was a major transformation in my life that made me who I am now. And that’s having children,” shares Dr. Bill Schindler. “Almost every pre-historic technology that I spent my life learning about has something to do with food. I realized that that was the key to making an impact on my family.” Ancestral Diets When we talk about ancestral diets, there are components to consider like prehistoric technologies, behaviors regarding food, food acquisition, and processing. Dr. Bill Schindler says ancestral diets was almost always focused on increasing the nutrient density or bioavailability of the nutrients in our food. Between five and seven million years ago, Dr. Bill Schindler said our earliest ancestors first stood up and became bi-pedal. The size of our gut impacts how well we digest our food and how well we absorb that food that’s been broken down. “On the other hand, the food processing today are focused on other things like storage, shipping, and shelf life and usually at the expense of nutrients. I realized how important it is to understand this and how it completely impacts our approach to food or diet and health,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. Food Evolution Dr. Bill Schindler says that during the early times, we were able to obtain food using only our biological characteristics or traits. As a result, our bodies and our brains remained the size that they did. “This is because our ability to take in large amounts of nutrients is very restricted because of our physical limitations,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. “It all began to change three and a half million years ago when one of our ancestors picked up two rocks and struck them against each other.” He adds, “That moment completely transformed the course of us becoming human. We could butcher for the first time. The earliest stone tool we ever found dates back 3.4 million years ago found in Kenya. And the earliest example of butchering dates to 3.3 million years ago in Ethiopia.” Furthermore, Dr. Bill Schindler said it opened up a world of possibilities. This includes hunting for the first time, cooking with fire, fermentation, cooking in containers and vessels, and drying. Over time, we continued to improve our diet, create new technologies and behavior patterns that can extract more nutrient-dense foods from the environment. So, we began to hunt more efficiently and detoxify certain plants that were inaccessible to us before. Maximizing Food Dr. Bill Schindler explains that to make the most use of the food we eat, we have to process that food before we eat it to allow our body to access it. He says our genes is a combination of our gene make-up and the environment that it interacts with. “If it’s about nutrient density, meat is more nutrient dense than vegetables and fruits. The biggest transformation of our ancestors occurs about two million years ago. I believe the biggest change here is we begin to hunt, and we begin to cook our food,” Dr. Bill Schindler said. Truth About Meat The reason that hunting is so important is that it is not about meat. Dr. Bill Schindler says, on the contrary, it is about animals. And the reason we could scavenge it three and a half million years ago is that the carnivores and the predators that killed that animal you’re scavenging from, left the meat behind after they ate all the good stuff. “When we began to hunt, we have first access to the most nutrient dense parts. And when that happens, we began to cook food,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. “Our brains and body exponentially grow. He adds, “Women also become more similar in size than men do which is an indicator of a quality diet as well. Our body was built on a diet that access animals. So, we need to focus on what was our diet like that produced our species and what technologies did they use to extract the most amount of nutrients in our environment.” Raw Dairy Dr. Bill Schindler says we can mechanically break down food with knives, mortars, and blenders. We can also ferment, take that food and derive nutrition from it. But Dr. Bill Schindler also shares that when he started having children, he wanted to learn more about dairy, especially dealing with raw dairy. He says all mammal babies are called mammals because their mothers have mammary glands. All baby mammals produce two different enzymes in their stomach that allow them to do some amazing things with milk. One is lactase, and the other is the enzyme chymosin which curdles milk. “The other thing that happens when raw dairy stays in the stomach for a little while is that it ferments. It is also important to allow it to break down better, releases nutrients and delivers all sorts of amazing probiotic nutrition into their bodies,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. He adds, “By fermenting milk, we’re automatically getting rid of a lot of the lactose that we’re having trouble with, and the enzyme lactase is already there. So that’s why people that are lactose-intolerant can often tolerate long-aged cheeses or things like yogurt.” Dr. Bill Schindler says that another thing we can do is harness chymosin and use it to curdle milk before we even eat it. And that’s cheese. But he also is firm in declaring that we have no business drinking ultra-pasteurized skim milk. Because skim milk delivers almost no nutrition.  Cooking Corn We have to realize the limitations of our bodies and understand what has been done in the past to access those nutrients and re-adopt those practices. Dr. Bill Schindler says if we adopt the crop and not the practice behind how to transform that raw material into a finished product, we’re missing out on a significant component of that diet. It can cause a lot of problems and corn is a great example. Dr. Bill Schindler shares what Native Americans figured out for a long time. They discovered that if they took the corn and boiled it in a solution of wood, ash, and water, it would break down that corn into something our bodies could digest. This became the basis for tamales or real tortillas.  But if you take the corn and boil, grind, bake, or eat it raw, you’re not getting all the nutrients that corn has. Dr. Bill Schindler says much of it will pass through our bodies even if we grind it into cornmeal. “If we’re eating food to derive nutrition from it, we have to realize the limitations of our bodies and understand what has been done in the past to access those nutrients and re-adopt those practices,” advises Dr. Bill Schindler. He also says corn is easy to grow. Hence, it is natural if people make it a significant part of their diet. In some ways, it may be good, but if we adopt the crop and not the practices behind how to transform that raw material into a finished product, we’re missing out on a significant component of that diet. Eventually, it can cause a lot of problems. “Grains are designed to stay dormant until they are in the perfect condition to support new life and to sprout and to grow. We can keep grains for years in a dry condition. And by grinding it and baking it, it does absolutely nothing,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. Reconnecting With Food Dr. Bill Schindler says the most important thing we can do is reconnect with our food and where it comes from. Cook everything entirely from scratch at least once. This way, we would find out how food is made. He also says thinking about food based on nutritional components is a terrible way to look at food. And that only started a little over a hundred years ago. To reconnect with food, Dr. Bill Schindler advises to do these steps: Focus on those food processing techniques that increase the nutrient density and the viability of nutrients in our food. Take steps to reconnect with our food, our diet and where it comes from. Understand and appreciate the context for all of our food. “Most of the traditional food that we all enjoy like real cured meat, real cheeses, real bread, all sorts of dairy ferments are deep-rooted in the past,” said Dr. Bill Schindler. “And when we make them the right way and apply the right techniques, they taste amazing they smell amazing, they look amazing, and they are satiating.”  Bio Dr. Bill Schindler is an Associate Professor of Anthropology and Archaeology at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland.  As both an experimental archaeologist and primitive technologist, his research and teaching, both in and outside of the college, revolve around a comprehensive understanding of prehistoric technologies including lithic (stone tool) technologies, prehistoric ceramic technologies, projectile technologies, hunting, foraging, hide working, fiber technologies and all aspects of prehistoric food acquisition, processing, storage, and consumption.   He believes that the better understanding of prehistoric life made possible through the archaeological record and a practical understanding of the technologies that created it can contextualize our place in the world and help provide answers to many of the issues facing us today.  Dr. Bill Schindler is a strong advocate of traditional foodways and is constantly seeking new ways to incorporate lessons learned from his research into the diets of modern humans.  His outlook on food has revolutionized the way in which he and his family eat, and he attributes much of the health his wife and three children enjoy to the hunted, gathered, and fermented foods that comprise a significant portion of their diets.  Dr. Bill Schindler has been trained by some of the world’s leading archaeologists, experimental archaeologists, and primitive technologists.  His research and teaching combine both academic and hands-on approaches resulting in unique teaching and learning opportunities, and he is equally at home in the middle of the forest armed with a hand-made bow stalking a deer or in a college classroom delivering a lecture to a group of students.   He truly lives what he teaches and teaches what he lives.  Dr. Bill Schindler’s teaching style is based on the belief that students are active learners and are best served by doing and solving real-world problems whenever possible; his approach is what he calls sole authorship, project-based, hands-on learning where students are engaged in a project for its entirety – immersed from the very beginning to very end.    In 2014, Dr. Bill Schindler was awarded the Washington College Alumni Associated Distinguished Professor of the Year Award, was nominated for the Carnegie-CASE-Phi Beta Kappa Professor of the Year Award, and in 2015 he delivered the keynote address focused on his approach to teaching at the world’s largest Experimental Archaeology Conference in Dublin, Ireland.  Dr. Bill Schindler also has a book coming out with Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, slated to be available in January 2019.

295 Cancer is Not a Death Sentence! Discover the Most Effective Ways to Prevent and Beat Cancer From 131 of the World’s Top Experts with Today's Guests Charlene and Ty Bollinger, The Truth About Cance

Discover The Truth About Cancer http://learntruehealth.com/cancer Truth About Cancer http://learntruehealth.com/the-truth-about-cancer The Truth About Cancer video documentary has been instrumental in educating a lot of people about cancer. The documentary is filled with so many interviews with experts. It is the brainchild of Ty and Charlene Bollinger who are my guests today and will talk more about the Truth About Cancer in this episode. Starting October 8, the Truth About Cancer will be streaming each episode daily wherein you can watch for free within 24 hours. To watch the Truth About Cancer episodes, link to www.learntruehealth.com/cancer. Family Tragedy Ty and Charlene Bollinger are also the ones behind the Truth About Vaccines video documentary. And like many other movers and shakers in the health space, their advocacy to spread the truth about cancer started from a series of family tragedies. First of all, Charlene Bollinger says everything great has a strong core and a foundation at the beginning. Her strong foundation started when she was a little girl who dreamed of marrying her knight in shining armor. Ty Bollinger turned out to be her dream guy. They married six months after their first date. It was also around this time that Ty Bollinger’s father was diagnosed with cancer. He was in extreme pain and had to undergo surgery. But two and a half hours into the surgery, the doctors came out and told the newlyweds that his cancer was so advanced. Twenty-five days later, Ty Bollinger’s father died. But Charlene Bollinger says it was actually because of a botched surgery which led Ty Bollinger’s father to bleed to death. The doctors did not sew him up properly. “Six months after that tragedy, we experienced the loss of his father’s father. And six months later his father’s brother, then his cousin Glenn. Then a few years later his mother’s mother, his mother’s father and finally his mother,” said Charlene Bollinger. Charlene Bollinger adds that along the way from 1996 to 2004 when Ty Bollinger lost his mother, they did a lot of research. They realized there were many better ways than the one that they knew. Looking back, Charlene Bollinger says that if only they knew those things in the beginning, their family members would most likely still be alive today. “We knew we had to get info out. In 2006, we published a book called Cancer: Step Outside the Box.  There are options,” said Charlene Bollinger. “Cancer does not have to be a death sentence. In 2014, we started our documentary. Now we reach millions of people, and we meet people regularly now.”  Doing The Research Ty Bollinger says that some of the most shocking statistics that they discovered were the inefficacy of chemo and radiation. They not only didn’t work very well but they were the only option. And they were only thing doctors were taught about. “I was angry I lost my parents because they didn’t know there were other options outside of chemo and radiation surgery. People die because of lack of knowledge,” said Ty Bollinger. Ty Bollinger laments that doctors who prescribed something out of the ordinary, are sometimes mocked by their peers. Sometimes they lose their medical license and even get kicked out of a country. Those doctors are forced to practice somewhere else because they use something that wasn’t core approved by the FDA. “Cancer is not a death sentence. It’s very preventable. There are lots of building blocks to being healthy. If you participate in those building blocks, then you have a very good chance of not getting cancer and never dying from cancer,” said Ty Bollinger.  He adds, “The best treatments are also the best preventions. I think if I knew all these things that I know and have learned from the doctors over the years, and didn’t practice on them, I’d be a hypocrite.”  Recommended Diet When it comes to diet, Charlene Bollinger says clean food means non-GMO, organic, and real foods. She says most of the foods that Americans are eating aren’t even real foods. They are so processed and synthetic. That’s why the body starts attacking itself because it doesn’t know what to do with the stuff because it’s not food. Charlene Bollinger advises people that the first thing they should do is educate themselves. They need to understand the options. And they need to understand the body. Furthermore, she says they need to understand what’s good for the body and the immune system. They also need to understand that the full body approach is mind spirit and body. “We have toxicity that we need to detox. Every doctor in Asia said something that we did not know before. Every case of cancer there was directly related to something in mind,” Ty Bollinger said. “There was a connection to bitterness and eating into their body physically. Forgiveness goes a long way to break free from these bitter roots.”  Ty Bollinger says different diets work for different people. The ketogenic diet has worked for some people but not for others. Same with raw food or vegan. As a result, the Bollingers try to become agnostic when it comes to diets. “Eat as close to nature as you can and eat organic. For meats, make sure meats are raised humanely,” advises Ty Bollinger. “Cancer cells are fermenting sugar for energy. So by going through a ketogenic diet, you’re taking away the fuel for cancer.”  Metronomic Chemotherapy Metronomic chemotherapy is a repeated administration of anti-neoplastic drugs in frequent and comparatively low doses. It also doesn’t have a long drug-free period. On the other hand, Ty Bollinger says insulin potentiation therapy low dose targeted chemo is similar to metronomic chemotherapy. It’s used in about anywhere from a 5th to the 10th of a normal dose of chemo. And its coupling that with insulin to be able to target the cancer cells. “It’s been effective in many parts of the world. And very effective in killing cancer cells. It does not typically have any side effects because the dose of chemo is so low and its very targeted,” said Ty Bollinger. “But they are using this with other treatments as well like dietary changes, exercise, and detoxification.” Root Causes of Cancer Ty Bollinger says that if we look at cancer that’s a disease, it is not only a result of nutritional deficiency but also overburden of toxicity. Hence, we need to look at the toxins that we’re exposed to today. Factors include toxins in the water, in the air, food, and invisible toxins like electromagnetic fields or EMFs. And because EMFs have proven to be harmful, Charlene Bollinger suggests getting a device to block the EMFs. Otherwise, it’s best to turn off gadgets when not in use. “The American Cancer Society reports that 80% of cancers are due to environmental toxicity and lifestyle choices. That’s why our immune system is compromised because of toxicity,” said Ty Bollinger. Healthy Habits Aside from exercising three to four times a week, I’m thrilled to find out that Ty Bollinger is also a big fan of Sunlighten Saunas. He makes it a habit of sitting in the sauna to sweat daily. He also jumps on a rebounder to stimulate the lymphatic flow. Because according to him, that’s an excellent way to carry nutrients to the cells, as well as detox the cells.  Stop Buying Harmful Products One reason why companies like Monsanto, Bayer, and pharma companies are still in business is because of consumers. Ty Bollinger says that they continue producing harmful products because people are still buying it. “Don’t buy their stuff. If people stop buying, they will stop producing it,” Ty Bollinger said. “Educate people. Make decisions based on truth and facts. Stop buying the poison and put them out of business.” Positive Mindset On the other hand, Charlene Bollinger says that laughter is one of the best medicines to curb cancer. Laughter along with exercise significantly improves health. The same goes for thoughts filled with love, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control. “Think about everything you touch, taste, everything that you think about needs to be as clean as you can get it to be—organic or GMO-free,” said Charlene Bollinger. “If there’s a little bitterness there, do whatever it takes to forgive. Work through that to a better place to where there is freedom in our mind and soul so there could be healthy in the body.”  Bio Ty M. Bollinger is a Christian, happily married husband and father, health freedom advocate, cancer researcher, former competitive bodybuilder, documentary film producer, radio show host, and author.  Ty M. Bollinger first brought his discoveries to the public in the best-selling book Cancer: Step Outside the Box. He has also co-authored other books on alternatives to conventional medicine. The two groundbreaking documentary series on cancer treatment he has produced–The Quest for the Cures (2014) and The Truth about Cancer: A Global Quest (2015)–have been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide. He is married to Charlene Bollinger.  Get Connected With Ty Bollinger: The Truth About Cancer The Truth About Cancer – Facebook   ************************************ Learn How To Achieve Optimal Health From Naturopathic Doctors!

294 The Amazing Benefits of Transdermal Magnesium to Help Hormone Health, Chronic Pain, Autoimmune, Seizures, Blood Pressure, Detoxification, Restless Legs, Anxiety, Cortisol, Sleep and Fatigue, Livin

www.livingthegoodlifenaturally.com Use coupon code LTH for 10% off! Magnesium Foot Soak http://learntruehealth.com/magnesium-foot-soak I have been raving about my guest’s magnesium foot soak for some time now. Magnesium has proven to be such an important component of health. But a magnesium foot soak is much more effective in getting it into our body. To further explain the benefits of a magnesium foot soak, I’m thrilled to have Kristen Bowen on the show. Health Issues Kristen Bowen said she had health issues even as a little girl. But rather than digging into the cause, her parents kept putting band-aids on it. During her teenage years, Kristen Bowen grew out of her health issues. But reaching her early 20s the autoimmune issues started to kick in. The big crash happened in 2003. Kristen Bowen says that time, she had a baby and was having some bladder issues as well as leaking. Upon the advice of her sisters, Kristen Bowen went to an OB-gyne to get her bladder tied up. Seizures During Kristen Bowen’s gallbladder surgery, her heart kept stopping. After surgery, she started having seizures, and her body just started crashing. In the course of three and a half years, she ended up in a wheelchair. However, Kristen Bowen’s husband never gave up. Being 36 years old at that time, a good day for her was opening her eyes on the couch. It also affected her six children. Two kids were newly adopted at the time, and her health issues were added stress on any child. As much they wanted to be smooth and strong for the kids, no doctors could do anything. Ray Of Hope One day, Kristen Bowen and her husband happened to listen to a radio show and heard a physician’s assistant talking about out of the box solutions. They felt a ray of hope that someone will finally listen to them. They finally went to see that doctor who indeed listened to them. Although he was clueless about Kristen Bowen’s condition, he wanted to do some research. After a month, they met up again. The doctor found something that he was interested in and asked Kristen Bowen if she was willing to try it out. “And what he found was, people with autoimmune who went into surgery had a reaction to the metal in the titanium. Even though the thinking at the time was that titanium was inert. He suggested to redo the bladder tie up and take the titanium out. That was a huge decision to make,” recalls Kristen Bowen. During surgery, the doctor found that Kristen Bowen’s cadaver graft did not have a tracking number. Hence, the assumption was that her cadaver graft was bought on the black market and it had molds on it.  “The molds shut my body down. Even moments after that surgery, I knew something was better. Because I could think and process. At that point we knew we made the right decision,” said Kristen Bowen. “But it left me with all sort of issues. The quality of my life was low, so I searched out of the box solutions.”  Building A Strong Foundation It was about twelve to fourteen weeks when Kristen Bowen’s seizures completely stopped and went away. She now teaches clients not to chase symptoms and build a strong foundation instead. “Chasing symptoms is expensive, and it leaves you with a cupboardful of supplements that you quit using because it doesn’t work,” said Kristen Bowen. “Magnesium is that foundation and doing a magnesium foot soak gets you that cell saturation. You can’t get it orally with oral magnesium.”  Magnesium Foot Soak The first time Kristen Bowen heard of a magnesium foot soak was when a lady suggested it to her. When it successfully helped her recover her health, Kristen Bowen vowed to share the magnesium foot soak with other people. “My company is about helping people and making a difference. It is showing information and education so that people can make the best decisions for the journey of where they are at,” said Kristen Bowen. Describing what a magnesium foot soak feels like, Kristen Bowen says it was like a sponge soaking up needed nutrition. She saw results for a year and a half when suddenly it quit working. “They changed where they got it from and the FDA the way it’s written; you don’t have to tell people if you put water and magnesium because it already has water in it. And they diluted it,” Kristen Bowen reveals.  She adds, “So, we had it tested. I don’t go for what a company says, and I test in an independent lab. It is imported from the cleanest source and contains undiluted pure magnesium from the Zechstein Sea in the Netherlands because magnesium from Russia is high in heavy metals.”  Thermal Imaging Testing Other companies dilute their magnesium soaks. And through a thermal imaging testing, Kristen Bowen proved that her 64-ounce bottle of Living the Good Life Naturally Magnesium contains 403 grams of magnesium chloride. An adult requires a quarter cup which is 24.42 grams of magnesium or 24.424 milligrams. When you do a magnesium foot soak for 20 minutes, the thermal imaging testing showed that the body absorbs 80% of that. After 45 minutes, the body absorbs 98% of the magnesium. Then some remain on skin as residue. 30-Day Challenge Kristen Bowen says our grandparents did not have to worry about magnesium because they were getting it from their food. On the other hand, we have to be current and understand what we need to focus on to build optimal health. Nowadays, we can’t get magnesium from our food, because of lifestyle, EMF, food, sugar, and stress. The 30-day challenge requires doing a magnesium foot soak every day for 30 days. And Kristen Bowen attests to the fact that a lot of people’s health improved significantly. Shame Cortisol There was also a number who initially failed to benefit from the magnesium foot soak. Kristen Bowen said she looked into the cases of those thirteen women and discovered something valuable. “What I learned rocked my world personally. I discovered that when there is rage cortisol, shame is quiet. It is internal and cannot be seen externally. That shame cortisol is so detrimental to healing. All these women have been tapped in to shame for years,” explains Kristen Bowen.  She adds, “And because they have lived with high cortisol levels, their bodies were not absorbing that magnesium. Because when cortisol levels go up, magnesium gets pushed out through the urine.” Because of that incident, Kristen Bowen wanted to help people understand how detrimental shame is. We must learn to understand the process of shame, what it feels like when you’re standing in shame and understand the connection that you’re walking away from your health at that point. So, in the case of those thirteen women, it has more to do with internal healing and creating a stronger mind-body connection. It took those women three months to utilize tools to work on the process of shame. Tools included journaling and energy work like emotional freedom techniques.  Magnesium Red Blood Cell Test The magnesium red blood cell test has two kinds of tests you can take to test your magnesium. One is a magnesium blood serum test. Magnesium is so important to your body to keep your blood at 1% saturation. And if that blood serum test shows you have a problem, you’re in massive crisis. Furthermore, Kristen Bowen says the magnesium red blood cell test tests the magnesium around each red blood cell. It gives a more intimate, accurate picture of how you are utilizing that magnesium that you are soaking in. And the optimal numbers are 6.3 to 7. For anyone who would want to avail of any lab testing, Kristen Bowen recommends Walk-In Lab.  The magnesium red blood cell test, in particular, is around $47 to 49 dollars, and there’s usually a coupon code online to avail of a discount. Gut Health According to Kristen Bowen, magnesium is also connected to the gut health and peristaltic action. They don’t work at that chronic constipation as a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is also essential for the adrenals, and Kristen Bowen considers the adrenals the holding point for your health. “On the other hand, DHEA levels tell the hormones were to show up and where to go. Magnesium self-balances that. And not that magnesium is going to cure every hormone, but it’s going to build a good foundation for your hormones to start functioning and interacting better with each other,” said Kristen Bowen. Thyroid Health Kristen Bowen says magnesium is so vital to thyroid health and that conversion of t4 to t3. If you’re not converting from t4 to t3, your energy is going down. And then after the energy starts to sink, you start to put a spare tire around your waist of weight. That’s a t4 – t3 conversion issue and your body need magnesium to make that happen. “Some people’s bodies are excited to pick up that magnesium and they drop the potassium. Hence, they feel horrible,” said Kristen Bowen.  She adds, “Have half a teaspoon of baking soda, a half cup of water and drink that. That alkalinity will help bring balance back into the body. You can also drink some coconut water that’s rich in potassium.” Long-Term Benefits Kristen Bowen believes that oral magnesium will give you some short-term benefit. It also decreases peristaltic action. Furthermore, it slows that down in your digestive system, and it decreases your body’s ability to uptake nutrients from food. And she’s not willing to hand those long-term benefits for the short-term solutions. “The soak will get you the cell saturation. And the muscle cream is a great way to load up on magnesium in between your soaking and using it for spot treatments. As you feel a little bit better, you can add the B vitamins then boron or taurine,” Kristen Bowen said.   Giveaway As a bonus, Kristen Bowen is giving away two bottles of magnesium foot soak and magnesium cream. So, do join the Learn True Health Facebook group for more details. For those who want to purchase on her online store, there’s a generous discount as well. Just input coupon code LTH upon checkout. Sitting in a wheelchair, having daily seizures, losing her hair and being fed through tubes was finally enough to wake Kristen Bowen up to make some changes in her life. She wakes up every morning grinning because her clients are crushing it at a pace that blows her mind.  It helps her remember that everything that happened to her now serves as her greatest gift to help people tap into their health with ease and grace. This is more than a job to Kristen Bowen. It is her mission to touch as many people as she can to cut the overwhelm we all experience when it comes to creating the very best day we have ever lived.

293 Powerful Holistic Habits, How To Test Your pH and Balance Your Alkalinity, Removing Toxins and Heavy Metals, Healing Gut Protocol, Platinum Energy Systems, Kellyann Andrews, Ashley James, Learn Tr

www.PlatinumEnergycentre.ca (for clients and practitioners) (our resource library) (we will give you access to this site and the ebooks) Use coupon code LTH for 15% off! Balancing pH http://learntruehealth.com/balancing-ph Balancing pH is an essential factor for optimal health. And there are so many other natural ways on how we can achieve good health through Holistic habits.  To teach us all about balancing pH, Kellyann Andrews is back for part 2 of our topic about creating wellness on a cellular level. Importance of Vibration Kellyann Andrews explains that when we are in a debilitative state or deep degenerative state, our vibratory level is at a very low frequency. As the health of our body goes up, there’s a lighter feeling within the body. We then can see the vibrancy come back. “The biggest thing we need to do is raise the vibration. And as we raise the vibration in our bodies and bring them together, we create a higher resonance. That’s what we need to do,” said Kellyann Andrews. “When the body is at a higher resonance, you are mobilized at a higher level of healing capabilities.” She also reveals that the thing that creates low resonance in the body is heavy metals. It is the heavy metals that are causing chaos frequencies in the body. How To Achieve High Resonance One way to keep the body at a high level of resonance is monitoring whether we are effectively balancing pH. Kellyann Andrews says if you test your saliva first thing in the morning, that will tell you what is happening in your biochemistry. You test your saliva to see what your digestive tract is doing. On the other hand, if you test your urine, that tells you what is happening at the cellular level. Through those options, you can see whether your lifestyle is affecting your biochemistry the right way or if it is affecting it at all. “When you test your PH first thing in the morning, you are likely to be more acidic because you had nothing to eat or drink all day. Monitoring your PH can show you what you are gaining or losing from your lifestyle choices,” Kellyann Andrews said. She adds, “Because many of us are on the path of wellness, we’re eating more alkalizing foods, as well as eating higher and more vibrational foods. We also avoid pathogen and chemical laden foods. A lot of the foods that we eat, even foods such as oatmeal are acidifiers.” Balancing pH Tests There are a lot of tests in the market to see if we are balancing pH. According to Kellyann Andrews, when it comes to balancing pH, aim for a number level of 7 or slightly above. Kellyann Andrews cautions against getting an 8 or 9. Otherwise, we’ll be too alkaline, and we can get other situations from that. “People who have cancer will be down at 5. The pH in the urine indicates the cellular pH. Whereas the saliva indicates the digestive tract,” said Kellyann Andrews. Acidity Kellyann Andrews stresses that our body cannot heal, repair or lose weight when it is acidic. When people are chronically ill, they will be acidic. And it’s not going to shift overnight. Therefore, it’s best to monitor yourself three to four days in a row so you can see a pattern. “If you did all the right things, then you’re going to be slightly alkaline PH. You’ll feel good. But it’s going to fluctuate like a roller coaster,” said Kellyann Andrews. “You’re never always going to be alkaline because life doesn’t work that way. Our stress levels are so undermining our body’s health. So that’s why you have to be your own best friend.”  Slippery Elm Kellyann Andrews highly recommends taking Slippery Elm which is a powder. When you put it in water, it creates this gelatinous substance. And when you take that internally, you slick your whole tract.   Turmeric is also a great thing to incorporate in your diet. Kellyann Andrews explains that when you drink something which turmeric, your whole tract absorbs the turmeric. It is one of the most awesome bitters you can take into the body. Plus, it helps shut down the harmful elements in the body that cause the inflammation and turns off the mechanisms. “When you put Slippery Elm in, it creates a barrier to stop the leaky gut. I get a cylinder tea mug and put warm water. Then put in first Mineral Matrix Goat Whey. Followed by Sunflower lecithin and turmeric. But you don’t want the soy lecithin because that’s GMO focused,” said Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “I drink half of it, so you get the minerals immediately then mix it up, let it sit for five minutes. When it turns into a gel-like mass, add more water and drink. That’s the part that will go through the tracts slowly. It will get rid of the bacteria, fungus, and bacteria.” Chlorella Chlorella is also what Kellyann Andrews highly recommends. She says it mineralizes and alkalizes the body. It is also a detoxifier and a binder. In effect, it pulls the bad content out like the heavy metals. Ideally, Kellyann Andrews says anyone who is doing chemo or has radiation should be using chlorella. Other Holistic Habits Kellyann Andrews strongly advises never to drink tap water. Facts show that babies have about 90% water but adults or the elderly have as little as 50%. In other words, most people are completely dehydrated. Affirming what numerous experts have advised, Kellyann Andrews also says to get some regular daily exercise. She says if you’re doing a yoga movement in a flowing kind of fashion, it can be very soothing to the body. As a result, you’re moving back into parasympathetic mode.  “Doing something like Shi Ba Fa is a whole set of moves that will tune up all parts of your body and create your core strength to come out and also your balance. It works on so many levels,” said Kellyann Andrews. “If you want to create some balance in your life, you have to create some pauses like meditating or praying. It’s about connecting to a different frequency.” She adds, “The biggest thing we can do is be sunny in the world. You have to create that at a cellular level, expand it out to a gland level, then to an organ level and a system level. You then become this glowing sun presence. Ultimately, be aware of what vibration you are sharing with others.”  Platinum Energy Systems For those who want more information about what Platinum Energy Systems is, check out their official website.

292 How To Create Consistent Wellness At the Cellular Level, Heavy Metal Detoxification, Detox Chemicals, Pesticides, Mercury, Lead, Copper, Autoimmune, Cancer, Autism, ADHD, Dementia, Sleep, Platinum

www.PlatinumEnergycentre.ca (for clients and practitioners) (our resource library) (we will give you access to this site and the ebooks) Use coupon code LTH for 15% off! Creating Wellness http://learntruehealth.com/creating-wellness People need to realize the importance of creating wellness at the cellular level.  We have so many resources for diets and technologies that promote wellness naturally. But the problem is, which of those are truly effective? My guest Kellyann Andrews says of creating wellness at the cellular level does not happen overnight. Check out this episode to learn precisely what it takes to creating wellness at the cellular level. Sickly Child Kellyann Andrews was a sickly child. During her younger years, she dealt with extreme asthma and allergies. When she was in her 40s, she suffered from arthritis, gout, and rheumatism. Kellyann Andrews says both her parents had a genetic disposition. Plus, her living environment aggravated her stressful state. “That stress level ignited the wrong epigenetics to occur. And turned on all the bad genes because of the extreme stress levels,” said Kellyann Andrews. Searching For A Cure Because of her health journey, Kellyann Andrews wanted to discover what is the core cause of disease. She went down the path of wellness to investigate how to achieve creating wellness at a cellular level. “And I can tell you, the joy of the experience is that at age 61, I now take the stairs two at a time. I have the mobility and agility that didn’t have in my 20s. And at age 60, my gray hairs turned dark again,” reveals Kellyann Andrews. Dangers of Mercury Like many other experts, Kellyann Andrews cautions against the dangers of mercury. She also experienced mercury blackouts because of her dentist. At that time, she didn’t know mercury was harmful. “They had no methodology to get them out. So, I went down this amazing journey of biochemistry and investigated the core cause of disease and wellness,” said Kellyann Andrews. “It brought me down to the cellular level of the body. Anything that was making the cell healthy eventually led me to toxicology.”  Domino Effect Kellyann Andrews eventually understood that the poison inside the body was a huge trigger to so many biological and chemical responses. She also realized it was also getting stuck at the muscular level and arteries. Hence, affecting every cell. “So, what we needed was the methodology that would get heavy metals, chemicals, and all foreign content out of the body safely, easily and gently,” said Kellyann Andrews. “The human body was designed to rejuvenate. So, that whole thinking of our parents and grandparents degenerating as you grow older is not accurate.” She added, “We are experiencing an environment on the planet that human history has never experienced ever. And it’s an accumulation of all the toxicity that has been caused by industry. The world has gotten to such a degree of toxicity that the human body is just completely absorbing it.” Kellyann Andrews also stresses that in creating wellness at the cellular level, it’s not just about what you have accumulated in your entire life that hasn’t come out.  More importantly, it’s also what you are absorbing daily. Dangers Of Copper Most of us have already heard the dangers of mercury. But according to Kellyann Andrews, the one that isn’t as well-known is copper. This is because, in old houses, there was copper piping. Kellyann Andrews says we were taught copper pans were a good thing to cook in. And women who are on birth control used IUD which had copper. If we get mercury amalgam fillings, there’s also copper in there.  Kellyann Andrews says even very wholesome foods can have a lot of copper. It’s a domino effect. And Kellyann Andrews says these multiple sources are accumulating. She also adds that there is proof of a correlation between migraine headaches and copper. “A lot of Naturopaths and Holistic Doctors do shy away from chelation. Because it depletes the body of absolutely everything. Then they play a guessing game on what to put back in,” surmises Kellyann Andrews. Gauging Presence Of Heavy Metals Kellyann Andrews says during that very low, vibratory state and the world is just completely overwhelming, it’s so easy to be completely absorbed in your symptoms and how awful you feel. So, she highly recommends taking a photo of yourself when you were experiencing good health. Or a picture of someone who is vibrant. Place the photo on the fridge and say, “Body, today, this is what we are creating.” Kellyann Andrews advises making it a now experience, not tomorrow or sometime in the future. Ultimately, we have to own it at the moment. But before creating wellness at a cellular level, you have first to be aware of the signs. Kellyann Andrews says for heavy metals in particular when the whites of the eyes are grey, that is the classic symptom of heavy metals toxicity. “The body does not purge one organ at a time. Whatever comes out of your colon, bladder, feces, and urine is a collection of debris that has been collected from all parts of the body,” said Kellyann Andrews. How Our Body Copes When you are at a debilitative state, Kellyann Andrews says it’s like you’re watching the illness movie. So, what you want to do is switch the channel. Start watching the wellness movie and do the wellness or healing habits. When the body burden goes up, so does the volume of symptoms in the body. Kellyann Andrews explains that the more severe the symptoms, the more it is a window to understanding that you’ve got a massive load of toxicity. It’s the accumulation factor that is causing the tipping point and then goes into degenerative diseases. “And when the toxicity reaches a certain level in the body, what occurs is the autoimmune diseases. The amount of people that are experiencing this kind of effect nowadays is just so astronomical because of the exposure that we’re all experiencing,” said Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “Your body is your mirror. It sends alert signals to you on whether it’s happy or not. You have to listen to those alert signals. Your body sends amazing signals to you to let you know when you are in a toxic environment.”  Acidity Kellyann Andrews says the commonality of all sickness is acidity. Because when the body gets more acidic, the more severe the symptom is. We know cancer exists in a very acid environment, but Kellyann Andrews says that same environment is what causes things like arthritis, rheumatism, and gout. “So that hyperacidity within the body is what is undermining it. Through our Platinum Energy Systems detox, it is the fastest way to balance out the PH,” Kellyann Andrews explains. “Everybody needs to get their PH at a correct place. Your blood needs to be at 7.35 to 7.45 or else you’re in a coma. So, of course, your body will sacrifice all functionality to keep you conscious. Because it knows you have to stay in a conscious state to operate.” Detox Foot Spa Among the favorite ways of creating wellness at a cellular level is using a detox foot spa. Kellyann Andrews explains that when you put your feet into the warm salt water, you open up the sweat glands. So, it is a sweating process. Generally, people get sicker because their detox systems in their body like the liver, kidney, lungs, skin, gallbladder, of those organs and systems, get clogged up. “The lymphatic system helps the body detoxify itself. Our technology ties into this mechanism that is already designed by the body. But unfortunately, it clogs up massive molecules,” said Kellyann Andrews. She adds, “So in our system, the reason why it’s different is that we have multiple technologies. It’s not just metal components sitting in the base. And it’s got multiple interventive technologies designed behind it to assist body open up these drainage routes.” Controversies of Detox Foot Spas Kellyann Andrews reveals that there are so many controversies in the field about detox foot spas. Regarding technology, these knock-off foot spas have no control over the electricity. Kellyann Andrews says when people put more salt into the water, they are increasing the conductivity of that water. And the human body is not designed to have high levels of electricity. “Ours is the only component that sits in the water that has the array that has the control mechanism. If a practitioner puts in too much salt, it causes the water to be too conductive. And an excess of anything in the body is a toxin,” said Kellyann Andrews. Platinum Energy Systems Platinum Energy Systems is the only system in the world that has the capability of controlling the electricity. Kellyann Andrews says this is because it monitors, regulates and controls electricity right in the water. “The array itself is 100% automated. So, there are no dials. The technology is designed to do the rest, so you get multiple therapies. What this technology does is that it opens up the drainage routes which is the lymphatic system,” Kellyann Andrews said. Aside from that, one of the unique features of the system is that it is designed for people with high EMF sensitivity. Because in the Platinum Energy Systems, there’s a device to block out dirty electricity. “The mission of the company is broader than just selling a machine. Because of my background being a practitioner, the ambition behind the company is to teach wellness by focusing on cellular health,” explains Kellyann Andrews. “So, we consider ourselves to be an educational organization. We provide a lot of information for home users and practitioners.” For those who want more information about what Platinum Energy Systems is, check out their official website.

291 Holistic Science-Based Functional Medicine to Reverse Disease Naturally and Build Lasting Health, Dr. Emily Parke, Ashley James, Learn True Health

DETAILED SHOW NOTES COMING SOON https://www.dremilyparke.com/interview Functional Medicine  http://learntruehealth.com/functional-medicine So many people are gravitating now to functional medicine. This is because they know the implications of becoming too dependent on drugs. Functional medicine can even help heal the gut naturally to support the immune system.  To talk more about functional medicine, Dr. Emily Parke explains it in detail in this episode. Finding Her Passion When Dr. Emily Parke was little, she remembers wanting to try everything. Getting her first toy medical kit as a toddler ignited her curiosity about the medical world. During her teenage years was when she found a passion for medicine. At 16 years old, Dr. Emily Parke worked at CVS pharmacy part-time. That time, you didn’t need any extra training or certification to learn about medication and medical conditions.  So, Dr. Emily Parke was able to learn the ins and outs of the pharmacy business. Dr. Emily Parke also had a friend who was a volunteer for the local ambulance. She loved the experience and invited Dr. Emily Parke to try as well. So, at 17 years old, Dr. Emily Parke became a volunteer after undergoing actual training for the certified first responder. College Years During her college years, Dr. Emily Parke took up pre-med biology. Despite her college class schedule, she still found a way to continue her volunteer work with the local ambulance. Dr. Emily Parke loved all her science courses in college. She eventually switched schools and got an associate degree in respiratory therapy. Then she stayed on and got her Bachelors’ degree from the same college in cardiorespiratory science. But it wasn’t until Dr. Emily Parke got into respiratory therapy school when one of her instructors would put them on rounds as respiratory therapy students with the medical students at the university. Eventually, Dr. Emily Parke ended up choosing anesthesiology because there was a lot of hands-on stuff. The Cleveland Clinic Dr. Emily Parke did her anesthesiology residency at the Cleveland Clinic. For her, it was her first diverse experience. Working at the Cleveland Clinic was an achievement for Dr. Emily Parke. The Cleveland Clinic was the top three tertiary training facility and always in the top three hospital systems in the country. The Cleveland Clinic was also the number one cardiac center in the world. It was indeed a great place to train. Burned Out Dr. Emily Parke ended up doing a fellowship in pediatric and pediatric cardiac anesthesiology in Philadelphia. After her training, she decided to move to Phoenix, Arizona in 2009. The first year was great. For Dr. Emily Parke, it was a huge learning curve. But after a few years, Dr. Emily Parke started to burn out. She started not sleeping and had stomach issues.  Discovering Acupuncture Going to a doctor for consultation wasn’t successful. This was because Dr. Emily Parke didn’t want, but instead, she wanted to know why she was feeling the way she did. Dr. Emily Parke happened to have a friend going to acupuncture sessions and convinced Dr. Emily Parke to try. It turned out that acupuncture and Chinese herbs helped Dr. Emily Parke sleep well and address her stomach symptoms. Helping Patients After her personal experience with acupuncture, Dr. Emily Parke though about how to learn it also to help her patients. This was because as part of her anesthesiology job, Dr. Emily Parke was also vice chair of the pain department at Phoenix Children’s hospital for a couple of years. She was seeing kids with terrible pain issues just like adults. And that drove her to get training in medical acupuncture. “I took the complete training course for acupuncture for physicians and myself. Another doctor got the acupuncture program up and going at Phoenix Children’s hospital in-patient, and we were only doing out-patient acupuncture for adults,” said Dr. Emily Parke. Functional Medicine One of Dr. Emily Parke’s classmates mentioned the term functional medicine. Dr. Emily Parke ended up getting curious about it and started learning about functional medicine. Shortly after, Dr. Emily Parke found the Institute for Functional Medicine. What Dr. Emily Parke loved about the Institute for Functional Medicine was the fact that they had a complete certification process and was clear on what the curriculum was. “I started training in 2013. In 2014, The Cleveland Clinic paired with the Institute of Functional Medicine. And it kept growing,” said Dr. Emily Parke. “The acupuncture we’re doing for in-patients is pretty much pro bono because it’s complimentary. This because for alternative medicine, insurance does not reimburse for it as an in-patient since it is considered non-essential care.”  Arizona Wellness Medicine Dr. Emily Parke went all around the country taking their modules. There are seven modules to get certified in functional medicine. The first one is called applying for functional medicine in clinical practice. It teaches the vision and other practitioners how to think about patient care differently and apply the principles of functional medicine. “The other six modules are advanced practice modules and gets specific. Going to all of those training is great. There is a pre-course work and post-course work,” Dr. Emily Parke said. “Then in 2015, I opened my practice for functional medicine and acupuncture called the Arizona Wellness Medicine in Paradise Valley, Arizona.” Getting patients was a lot of hard worth but it was worth it.  From opening only on certain hours, the Arizona Wellness Medicine gradually increased their operating hours to full days. Nowadays, their schedule is always fully-booked, and it takes months to book an appointment with Dr. Emily Parke. The Arizona Wellness Medicine also has other practitioners to meet the demand for this type of medicine. To extend her healing network, Dr. Emily Parke built a relationship with people through writing blogs, diving into social media marketing and increasing video content in her social media channels. Food Issues According to Dr. Emily Parke, there are three main health issues with food. These are the food allergy, food sensitivity, and food intolerances. “Food allergies are IgE. If you eat food and you have a strong IgE to it, you’re going to get symptoms pretty much right away. IGE’s don’t tend to change a lot over time,” explains Dr. Emily Parke.  She adds, “Food sensitivity is not IGE. There’s a place called the Cyrex Company which does IGG and IGA food sensitivity testing. There’s not one test that looks at every part of the immune system’s response. It’s your body that tells us the true answer.” Food Elimination Plan Dr. Emily Parke walks patients through a 30-day food elimination plan. The plan has a specific reintroduction process that helps them figure out what their food sensitivities are. Because at the end of the day, no matter what the blood test shows, if you eat something and you don’t feel right, it’s best to stop eating it. “It takes your body’s immune system approximately 23 days to calm down by half. So 30 days gives you half that halfway point to where on the backend, you can tell if it creates a symptom for you or not,” said Dr. Emily Parke. Recommended Diet Dr. Emily Parke says that half your plate should be non-starchy veggies of some kind. Your diet should also include some fruit and some healthy fat like avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil, and coconut oil.  For proteins, good sources include grass-fed beef, wild caught salmon and organic free range chicken. “The paleo diet is just really getting you back to eating real food. It takes away processed food items. And it also lowers sugar as well as takes away a lot of the common food triggers,” said Dr. Emily Parke. On her website, Dr. Emily Parke has two free downloads available and ten yummy recipes which are anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense and paleo style. You can also get some information on her jumpstart plan which is a 30-day paleo reset. There’s not one food plan that’s perfect for everybody, so it’s best to consult with a good health practitioner. Autoimmune Diseases The treatment for people with the autoimmune disease also takes a different approach. And functional medicine is slowly getting popular as a treatment for people with autoimmune disease. “Autoimmune is on the rise. But I think in doing functional medicine, it attracts more autoimmune disease patients. I love autoimmune disease patients because there is a good degree of reversibility in treating them,” said Dr. Emily Parke.  Success Stories There have been many success stories of people healing because of functional medicine. Dr. Emily Parke loves to see people early on and as young as possible. “Because of many times with autoimmune disease, you’ll see the markers for autoimmunity in the bloodwork before someone has significant symptoms and organ damage,” said Dr. Emily Parke. “That’s a golden opportunity right there to reverse the autoimmune disease process.” Other Remedies Dr. Emily Parke can assist patients with a paleo autoimmune protocol to address their health issues. She also recommends Sarah Ballantyne’s book, the Paleo Principles to educate us on how to get good sleep and stress management. Doing a protocol generally reduces toxins. Eating organic foods and taking magnesium also helps one to sleep better and lowers blood pressure. Acne, on the other hand, indicates a significant skin and gut connection as well as toxins. One way to remedy skin issues is doing an anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense food plan to determine food sensitivity issues with the skin and also grow good healthy gut bacteria. “The top thing you can do to create health for yourself is to think about how you can lower your stresses and make your life simpler. Anything we can do to reduce stress and simplify our life is going to go a long way,” said Dr. Emily Parke.  Bio Dr. Emily Parke, DO, is board certified in anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology, trained in medical acupuncture, and specializes in Functional Medicine.  Dr. Emily Parke earned her bachelor’s degree in Cardiorespiratory Science at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York, near her hometown, and attended medical school at Rowan University in New Jersey. Upon graduation from medical school, Dr. Emily Parke completed her anesthesia residency at the world famous, top-ranked Cleveland Clinic, where she served as Chief Resident.  Her desire to tackle complex medical challenges led Dr. Emily Parke to pursue a pediatric anesthesia fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, consistently one of the top three children’s hospitals in the country, where she served as Chief Fellow. After completion of her anesthesia training in 2009, Dr. Emily Parke took a job practicing pediatric anesthesia in Phoenix, Arizona, doing complex pediatric anesthesia cases, as well as serving as vice chair of the Pediatric Pain Medicine Department at Phoenix Children’s Hospital from 2010-2012.  In 2012, Dr. Emily Parke completed training in Medical Acupuncture, which then led her to the cutting-edge field of Functional Medicine. She then began training with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) shortly after.  She is an IFM Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner and has completed the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine ADAPT clinician training program as well.  IFM, in collaboration with The Cleveland Clinic, opened the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine in October 2014. Also, Dr. Emily Parke has presented and lectured nationally on a variety of topics, which began early in her residency career and continues presently. Get Connected With Dr. Emily Parke!

It is a unique art of nourishing the mind, body, and spirit.  To explain what Kintsugi Wellness is all about, I’m thrilled to have its best-selling author Candice Kumai on this episode. Early Love For Food Candice Kumai is a classically-trained professional chef. She was a judge on Iron Chef America, a guest on the Dr. Oz Show, Wendy Williams, Today Show, as well as on Top Chef’s first season. She traces her love for food from her Japanese grandmother and her Polish grandmother. Candice Kumai’s mother also used her Japanese tradition in the United States with California produce. According to Candice Kumai, her mother cooked the best meals so eating Japanese dishes on a regular basis was normal for her. Going to Culinary School When Candice Kumai got older, she enrolled herself in culinary school after college. She eventually gained ample work experiences at several restaurants. Candice Kumai recalled the struggles she went through from her Top Chef stint in Los Angeles to move to New York. Now a writer in New York for eight years, Candice Kumai says it has been a painful roller coaster ride writing six books, magazine editing, producing, writing, and directing. “But mostly, I think I found my niche and my path when I started helping other people learn how to cook better. And also live a better life with really simple solutions that everyone can do,” said Candice Kumai. Clean Green Drinks Book Candice Kumai’s Clean Green Drinks help people perfect their basic smoothie from a sugar bomb into something that is full of nutrition and tastes like a milkshake. She said she was always trying to find more realistic ways and approaches for the American consumer.  It has now even expanded to have a global reach. Ultimately, it’s all about knowing the real resources you can do at home. Candice Kumai encourages people to eat more vegetables and fruits.  She says to make sure to include something fresh in your smoothie whether breakfast, lunch or dinner.  She also advises to drink water, and drink matcha tea instead of coffee. Like what most experts say, sleep is essential.  That’s why Candice Kumai strongly recommends going to bed early to prioritize your body, mind and emotional well-being. Furthermore, regular exercise helps a lot.  Kintsugi Wellness Candice Kumai’s latest book Kintsugi Wellness is based on her Japanese ancestors’ practices. She says she used their methods from the ancient which help her thrive now in the modern world. “All the things I grew up with came back full circle. And after a very rough time in New York city, my Japanese grandmother passed away,” said Candice Kumai.  She adds, “It took me three years to write this book. The book is a homage to my family’s heritage. I now take wellness seriously in a different format where I want everyone to learn the same Japanese practices I learned.” Lesson Learned The Kintsugi Wellness book stresses the following things: Always do your best. Continuously improve. Everything is perfectly imperfect with great resilience and endurance or just being a better service to others. “So, although my life is not perfect, I always felt like I didn’t fit in because of the Asian Heritage I grew up with,” said Candice Kumai. “Finding myself and finding my true voice meant being broken, picking up the pieces on my own, and putting them back together. Kintsugi Wellness book is a celebration of wellness and heritage.” Candice Kumai recalls that she didn’t think it would be her calling. But she was so attracted to learning from the monks, elderly people, learning from those who survived the war and escaped death. According to her, these were the people who taught Candice Kumai what real wellness was.  The Right Mindset Candice Kumai always knew she was a hard worker.  She was very persistent. But she also didn’t realize that continuous improvement through Kaizen—a Japanese term for improvement, was a Japanese practice until she turned 36 years old.  To illustrate the Japanese people’s values, Candice Kumai cites the 2011 earthquake. Despite the challenges, Japanese people didn’t complain, didn’t cry, scream or beg. They were very tolerant and resilient.  They endured great pain internally. “When I started understanding Japanese as a whole culture or a homogenous culture, we were never really supposed to stand out in Japan. They wanted everybody always to be the same as a group culture,” explains Candice Kumai. “With the Japanese Americans, I realized I could write a book about the Japanese practices I was raised with because I am Japanese American.” Wabi-Sabi Candice Kumai says the average Japanese person would not think this is any special or different. So, when she learned about Wabi-Sabi, it taught her how to embrace her imperfections. It influenced her so much, to the point that she named her podcast Wabi-sabi. “A lot of us have identity struggles. But learning that everything is perfectly imperfect, and accepting flaws are part of life and embracing them, is the practice of Wabi-sabi,” said Candice Kumai.  Purpose of Writing Book The Kintsugi Wellness book is currently available in nine countries all over the world. Through her book, Candice Kumai wanted to open up a new window to wellness where every person can embrace where they come from. It is also to help them see life from different perspectives. Because according to her, if we don’t tell the stories of our ancestors’ practices, we will surely lose them. Candice Kumai wrote Kintsugi Wellness in New York.  Among accomplishments like signing sixty different branding deals 2011 until now, she still wasn’t happy. She had a relationship that was broken, and her ex-partner traumatized her with an unexpected breakup. Candice Kumai also lost her grandmother, and that left her tired, depressed, and not full of life. “So, when I started studying more on my heritage, I came across the practice of Kintsugi. Kintsugi is the Japanese art form of building repair. That’s why it came to be wellness. Because it was a guide for anybody who was going through trauma, sadness, anger,” Candice Kumai said.  She adds, “There is a Japanese term in the book wherein it refers to pay attention and take great care. Sometimes we need to call to attention and be realistic in your goals. We may not all have the opportunity to be perfect, but we can change things to improve ourselves continuously every day a small bit at a time.” Helping People Candice Kumai says the Kintsugi Wellness book has helped so many people. Many people started sharing their pain, honorable struggles, and their past stories. In the end, they ended up coming out of it better. You have to be aware that you are not alone in your struggle. Recommended Diet Food plays a big factor in feeling good inside and out. Candice Kumai says one thing Americans don’t have in their traditional daily diet is fermented foods. On the other hand, the Japanese utilize things like natto, soy sauce, miso paste, fermented pickled veggies throughout the day. They generally have more fermented foods. One thing you can do is change things up with different flavors like miso, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar that contains some mother. It greatly helps gut health because it provides good bacteria. Also, try to cut down on sugar. “We can all help prevent disease together. And cooking is the greatest resource that we all have to live our lives. That is what I’m here for in a nutshell,” said Candice Kumai.  For breakfast, Candice Kumai usually eats a half avocado with miso paste.  Infusing your breakfast with lemon or apple cider vinegar is also ideal. She also loves doing a peach smoothie. Just mix frozen peaches, spinach, a touch of apple cider vinegar, almond milk, hemp seeds, berries, and collagen. Lunch is usually a big giant salad for Candice Kumai. The greens range from romaine or red leaf lettuce, arugula or spinach. Then she usually mixes it with red onion, garbanzo beans, kidney, cherry tomato, cucumber, olive oil, curry powder, sea salt, soy sauce, lemon or apple cider. For dinner, her favorite is eating salmon with miso paste, fresh greens, quinoa or brown rice.  She does indulge in a bit of chocolate or matcha cookies for dessert. Healthy drinks include matcha tea, hemp milk, almond milk or green tea.

289 How Full Spectrum Infrared Therapy Works to Improve Your Health, NASA, Stimulate Your Body's Ability To Heal Itself, Skin Healing, Pain, Mobility, Detoxification, Weight Loss, Blood Pressure, Stre

For more info on the full spectrum infrared system visit: Sunlighten.com "Alicia has been a health and wellness advocate for over 25 years. She is passionate about sharing the full-spectrum of a healthy lifestyle which helps empower people to live a healthier, happier life. Alicia believes wellness means more than dress size or body weight, true wellness encompasses every aspect of a person’s life from mental health, nutrition, livelihood, physical activity, and dark chocolate."   Infrared Therapy  http://learntruehealth.com/infrared-therapy/ Infrared therapy is something that I genuinely believe in especially after I bought a Sunlighten Sauna for home use. There have been many studies that came out attesting to the benefits of infrared therapy. But to talk about infrared therapy in detail, I have Sunlighten’s Business Development Executive Alicia Botyrius with us in this episode. Years As An Entrepreneur Alicia Botyrius was initially a customer at Sunlighten’s day spa in Kansas City.  Living in the city for 20 years, her work as an entrepreneur was stressful. But because she was interested in health and wellness, she frequented the day spa to decompress. Alicia Botyrius was a customer at the Sunlighten day spa for about five years. Reaping the benefits of infrared therapy was something Alicia Botyrius cherished. Going to the day spa was her sanctuary.  Naturally, her visits enabled Alicia Botyrius to know the products inside and out.  It was also fortunate that Sunlighten Saunas’ headquarters were in the suburbs of Kansas City, so I was a smooth transition to work for the company. Sunlighten Saunas Experience Alicia Botyrius felt that doing infrared therapy with other brands felt oppressively hot. The first time she did infrared therapy using a Sunlighten sauna unit, Alicia Botyrius felt extremely comfortable. “It’s meant to be something that’s enjoyed versus endured. And it has a nurturing feeling. If you’re coming from a stressed state, going to a sauna is the best feeling,” said Alicia Botyrius.  Stress Buster Alicia Botyrius didn’t realize how much anxiety and how much tension she had until she started coming to the sauna on a regular basis. She realized to step back and slow down her thoughts. Ultimately, Alicia Botyrius was better off in a calm state before making decisions versus a tired, anxious state. Alicia Botyrius explains that when you are stressed, your body runs off two systems. You have the sympathetic and the parasympathetic systems. “When you are in that sympathetic state, you are stressed and feels like somebody is chasing you. You are nervous and anxious,” said Alicia Botyrius, “And when you go into the sauna, there’s not much you can do. It forces you to step back and relax.”   She adds, “And as a result, your body switches over to the parasympathetic system which is what you’re in when you’re in a deep sleep. That’s the system where your body rests and recovers. By going to the sauna, you are naturally bringing your stress levels down. You are allowing the body to recover and repair itself. And it naturally brings up endorphins.”  Recovering From Injuries Infrared therapy is also a beautiful thing to use if you have any injuries, muscle or joint problems. Alicia Botyrius says utilizing a sauna will burn more calories and help improve your heart, lose weight, and detox toxins. “It’s getting help on a complete level and not just fixing the symptom. Plus, it’s finding the root issue and helping that as well,” Alicia Botyrius said. Types of Sauna Sunlighten Saunas offer three types of saunas.  The far infrared has a wavelength that is going to penetrate deepest into your body. According to Alicia Botyrius, this is primarily for detox and raising your temperature. The mid-infrared wavelength and near infrared are the two other types. Near-infrared targets improving skin health. Alicia Botyrius also explains that the near infrared we pulse out in Sunlighten Saunas involves no light and no heat. Instead, it is delivered through LED bulbs in the walls of the sauna. This means you’re not going to get hot, and you’re not going to sweat when using the near infrared. “The way that it was discovered is when NASA and the Navy Seals hired a scientist. It was to figure out the best way for astronauts to recover if they got cut in outer space because they are out of the atmosphere,” said Alicia Botyrius. “If you go out of the atmosphere and cut your arm, it can be fatal. Because we don’t have the atmosphere to help, your body heal.”  She adds, “The same thing in submarines. Burned cuts can be a dangerous situation. But 880 nanometers of energy will heal skin. So, it will help collagen production, help heal wounds, and the most effective way to help skin conditions recover.” Some other health conditions that the near infrared sauna can address are fine lines and wrinkles, wounds, sunburn, acne, psoriasis, and some types of rashes. “Near-infrared focuses on the skin but still goes under your skin. So, when the energy goes through there, it’s going to help a lot of areas like a whole-body treatment. It also helps reduce inflammation,” Alicia Botyrius said. Solo Sauna Sunlighten Saunas offer many unit models. Alicia Botyrius says the solo sauna is one of her favorite products because it is so effective. And so many people can use it. The solo sauna is also something that is portable and a space saver. “You just lay it on the floor. It comes with a mat if you want. There’s an infrared heating pad that you would lay on that’s a memory foam,” said Alicia Botyrius. “You’re getting those wonderful infrared heat from the whole backside of your body radiating up. So, all along your lower back and down your hamstrings are tight.”  On top of you are these domes of infrared that are so nurturing and gentle. It is exceptionally healthy and great for detox. And it is considered an ultra-low EMF of 0.6. Furthermore, the fabric the company uses is a carbonized bamboo, which is completely non-toxic. “I am creating a very strong foundation by making my body as healthy as can be. I feel like I’m coming from a really strong place to go get it,” said Alicia Botyrius.  She adds, “No matter what you do and what lifestyle you have, you can’t get rid of the toxins that are in our world today. And the deep sweat you experience in our patented infrared heaters allows you to get rid of all the garbage that you don’t need. And hold on to the things that are essential in your life.” EnergyBits I was so thrilled to find out that Alicia Botyrius became a fan of EnergyBits after she listened to my show where I guested creator Catharine Arnston. For those who want to buy their products, type in LTH at checkout to avail of the 20% off on all products. The discount code has no expiration date, so you can use it over and over again or share it with friends. Alicia Botyrius thinks it’s crucial to add EnergyBits into your health program because it is lead-free. Starting with taking Chlorella at night, Alicia Botyrius slept deeper and was more zestful. Waking up, she felt restored and sharper. Her feeling of being alert and awake felt so natural. Even when she exercised in the morning, she stayed alert all day. A few weeks later, she added Spirulina in the morning as an energy aid. Alicia Botyrius also found out that it helped curb her hunger.  Sunlighten Saunas Testimonies Some so many people have reaped the benefits of using Sunlighten Sauna regularly. It helps improve mobility and flexibility in people. Alicia Botyrius also says that as people get older and unsteady on their feet, this is something that can help them get stronger and become more stable. “All of our clinical studies are on the website. Sunlighten Sauna’s infrared heat had a statistically significant difference in people’s blood pressure,” said Alicia Botyrius. “The study was based on using the sauna 3x a week for 30 minutes for six weeks. That’s dramatic when you consider how many drugs people use to manage their high blood pressure.”  She adds, “By gently warming your core, it is helping your circulation improve. And as your circulation improves, you get so many benefits downstream because of that. It also improves heart health, helps reduce inflammation and lessens brain fog.”  Alicia Botyrius cites one story about a firefighter injured on the job. He was horribly on a high dose of pharmaceuticals. But thankfully, he incorporated holistic treatments, one of them being a regular user of Sunlighten Saunas. Today, the man also works for Sunlighten Saunas because he believes in it so much. Sustainable Wood Sunlighten Saunas are made of all-natural wood. They use a water-based finish on the outside. Alicia Botyrius says there might be some imperfections on the wood. That’s because the company prefers it to be as natural as possible without any chemicals. “Any time you have a resin, glue or paint, then you heat it up, and you are in an enclosed environment, you’re breathing in those elements and gases. And that is not healthy,” Alicia Botyrius said.  She adds, “We use sustainable wood. So, from an eco-perspective, we work with farms that believe in reforestation. We make sure it’s wellness for mother nature as well as wellness for people who use it.” Alicia Botyrius also says that the company also offers units using two other kinds of wood that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. Acoustic Resonance Therapy Sunlighten Saunas also have an audio system from So Sound. Alicia Botyrius explains that it’s a specific frequency that’s been clinically proven to help bring down stress levels and return people to a state of calmness. The So Sound music plays through the speaker system and provides a subtle vibration sound healing, like a musical massage.  It is best paired with the Chroma Therapy, where you can choose the color of the light to make you feel more relaxed. Financing Options Sunlighten Saunas offer great packages that are flexible and easy on your budget. They also help you find people to install your unit and have an excellent customer support team on standby to answer your inquiries. For home use units, the company offers a seven-year warranty for residents where your unit will be replaced for free if there are any defects. On the other hand, a five-year warranty is offered for commercial use units. Many hotels and top professional sports teams have Sunlighten Sauna units. Either way, Sunlighten Saunas are meant to last decades. They also offer free shipping and have excellent bamboo carbon towels, which are super absorbent, fragrance-free, organic, and available in their natural color. So, make sure to inquire about that.  “As technology improves and knowledge improves, we always want to stay ahead of everybody else. We make something that makes us stand apart from everybody else, and we’re very proud of that,” said Alicia Botyrius. “The sauna that you get today will not be the sauna that we have in 10 years or that we had ten years ago.”  Bio Alicia Botyrius, Business Development Executive at Sunlighten, has been building brands and businesses for 20 years.  Before Sunlighten, Alicia Botyrius started her career in a large telecommunications company and then spent 12 years as an entrepreneur in the fine art industry by running a business called Signature Canvas. She achieved many successes throughout her career, she landed the first and only co-branded television commercial in the telecommunications industry, grew and managed a worldwide start-up business and created various marketing campaigns and self-published a poetry book. Her success is attributed to the relationships she built with each person she worked with and her belief in servant leadership.  Alicia Botyrius has been a health and wellness advocate for over 25 years. She is passionate about sharing the full-spectrum of a healthy lifestyle which helps empower people to live a healthier, happier life. Alicia Botyrius believes wellness means more than dress size or body weight, true wellness encompasses every aspect of a person’s life from mental health, nutrition, livelihood, physical activity, and dark chocolate.  Alicia Botyrius holds a Bachelors’ Degree in Accounting from King’s College and an MBA from the University of Scranton.

288 How To Protect Yourself From The Fallout of Modern Technology, Radiation Nation, 5G, EMF, WiFi, Cell Phones, Radio Frequencies, RFID, Microwaves, Radiation, Cancer, Autism, Migraines, Blue Light B

https://www.defendershield.com DefenderShield http://learntruehealth.com/defendershield DefenderShield is a brand of technology which effectively protects us from the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields. I’m sure you’ve heard thousands of reviews proving the importance of avoiding EMF exposure.  To get a better understanding on EMFs and the benefits of DefenderShield, its creator Daniel DeBaun will explain all about it in this episode. In connection with the subject about electromagnetic fields, I’ve had Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt on the show some episodes back. His primary mission is to reverse autism in children, and one of his top recommendations is to have them stay away from wi-fi signals. You see, wi-fi signals vibrate at 60 hertz and vibrate the heavy metals in our nervous system. By doing this method of heavy metals detoxification, it helps patients slowly eradicate symptoms of autism. Protecting His Sons It was a very personal journey for Daniel DeBaun. Before creating DefenderShield, Daniel DeBaun led the standards development and testing environment for a telecommunications product for probably 25-30 years.  He made sure products were compliant to the standards they had in the system. When Daniel DeBaun decided to retire early, there was one time six years ago wherein his sons visited him at home. It bothered him that they were in front of their laptops for several hours.  He wife was similarly worried, so Daniel DeBaun researched potential dangers. “I was stunned that there was a lot of evidence. So, I figured out a way to protect them. Eventually, I made a prototype wherein his sons began using them as well as their friends,” shares Daniel DeBaun.  He adds, “My conclusion was that there was a problem.  We weren’t going to be victims from the technology in our environment, and I thought of trying to fix it. Plus my wife wanted grandchildren. That’s why she was concerned.”  What is Radio Frequency According to Daniel DeBaun, any device operating electronically has an emission of radiation that occurs below 300 Hertz. When that electronic device is consuming that power, there’s a by-product that occurs. And the by-product has exceptionally low-frequency admissions. It’s the stuff that comes out of your wall to electronics. “Anything that generates a current generates an emission. Then there’s the other type. It’s like when you want to connect to something, you have to create a connection from one device to the next,” Daniel DeBaun explains. “So, if you want to connect to a cell phone and call a friend, your cell phone connects to a cell power. That’s a radio frequency connection or an RF signal. That RF is another form of radiation.” Dangers of RF Signals Daniel DeBaun says that if you use your laptop and connect to your wi-fi to get internet access, that’s an RF signal that is allowing you to make that communication. It is a frequency. And the information rising within that frequency is how you communicate. “The RF is around one gigahertz. A wi-fi signal is around 4 or 5 gigahertz. It’s much faster and different,” said Daniel DeBaun. “It takes many years before we know the impact of the pollutants around us. And RF can be considered a pollutant. It is also dangerous because it can impact the cellular levels as well as the systems in your body.” Erratic Sleep Patterns Many studies have proven that electromagnetic fields mess up with our sleep patterns. Daniel DeBaun says that exposures from a cellphone put us at risk wherein the membrane of our cells can weaken. “Recreation of melatonin is interrupted by an RF signal. You can’t sleep well, and you have dry eyes. So, you need to think about the potentials for long-term exposures,” said Daniel DeBaun. To further illustrate, Daniel DeBaun cites that there is a potential that the egg of a 12-year old girl is carrying a potentially damaged DNA cell.  This is if she has been exposed to RF signals for a prolonged time. As the girl grows up, her egg is used to create her child. And some research has supported the concept that a baby could end up having a damaged DNA cell as well.  Natural Toxicity Program The Natural Toxicity Program is a division of the US Federal Government. Approximately $25 million was poured into the program two years ago to prove a statistically significant epidemiology study that there was no concern about cell damage from an RF signal. The program took transmitters from a cellphone and included it in the test environment. Radiating this epidemiology population, they found an increase in certain types of brain and heart cancers. The numbers were statistically and significantly higher than the general population that didn’t have that exposure. “There were thousands of studies in the last five years that look at the breakdown of cells. And there’s that concern that with all these studies, you can’t conclude it. That’s why there’s a bit of controversy in the space,” said Daniel DeBaun.  The 5G Network Daniel DeBaun explains that when we had an analog signal, 2 to 4G could break the cells down because it went to a digital format. And the way it is encoded impacts the cells differently. “We know the digital signal along with the frequency rate is what is impacting our cells. And it creates all the challenges we have today,” said Daniel DeBaun.  One gigahertz is a billion signals per second. And the 5G network allows us to connect with anything or anybody because of its high speed. Going from 1 gigahertz to roughly 20 gigahertz, Daniel DeBaun says it’s twenty times more speed per second than one gigahertz. “It’s one third the speed of an x-ray. The x-ray is powerful enough to take electrons, knock it out of orbit and charge it. That’s the mechanical breakdown of the cell that causes cancer,” reveals Daniel DeBaun. Daniel DeBaun also says that the much more significant speed of 5G is cause for concern. It’s so fast that you can’t go very far. You can’t go any more than 850 feet. “So, if you’re within a thousand feet of a cell phone tower, you are three times more likely to have cancer. None of us are smart enough to know what the answer is on 5G. Because none of us had studied it anywhere in the world,” said Daniel DeBaun.  He adds, “No scientific research occurred in that 23 gigahertz space. We can only predict based on what we know of previous technology.” Radiation Nation Book For those who want to know more about EMF radiation, check out Daniel DeBaun’s book called Radiation Nation–Your Complete guide to EMF safety and protection. It details all the truths and health challenges what we get from modern technology. “It was written out of frustration. When I looked at the research as a scientist, there was a lot of evidence that was pre-directionally not good for us,” Daniel DeBaun said. “We were confused about what the stuff was. And we were trying to bring up our families in a changing environment.”  Daniel DeBaun says he was frustrated because he didn’t see the simple understanding of what the issue is and the simple understanding of what you can do about it. Hence, this book tries to close those gaps. “The book was for my mother for her daughter. It was for the people that are making decisions in our lives,” said Daniel DeBaun. “I needed to try to help them understand what the problem was and the things they could do. Simple actions can have a substantial change. It was written for the average person to understand the environment they are living at.”   Actionable Steps And just what can we do to lower our exposure to EMF? Daniel DeBaun says that when you have a cell phone against your head, you want to think about that as the worst exposure you can have on a cellphone. “If you take that cell phone and take it away one foot from your head, 80% of the potential danger of that signal is gone. By 4 feet, 98% of the danger is gone,” Daniel DeBaun said. In other words, the power adds up so fast that the distance spells a big difference. It is relatively easy to do. By merely moving something or moving the device away from you by a little bit, there a significant benefit. Duration indeed plays an important part in minimizing harmful exposures and living longer. “If you have a cell phone with a cell tower connection, wi-fi signal and Bluetooth, those are three transmitters entering into the room. You don’t need all three,” said Daniel DeBaun. “I only have cell power. By turning it off, I reduce two-thirds the exposure in the room simply by turning it off and put the phone on speaker mode instead.” The same goes for TV unites connected to routers and TV boxes. Daniel DeBaun advises that we don’t have to have the wi-fi signal on. Instead, we reduce those transmitters in the room, and that minimizes the exposure. DefenderShield Products Daniel DeBaun sells a wide variety DefenderShield products on his website. He said among the DefenderShield selections, the EMF Radiation-Free Air Tube Stereo Headphones / Earbuds is most recommended. It has a long cord to allow you to use your device 4.5 feet away.

287 Smart Blood Sugar, Vitamin E, Genetics For Detox, Diabetes, Ancient Cultures, Traditional Healing Foods, Weight Loss, Insulin, Bredesen MEND Protocol, Functional Medicine, Dr. Marlene Merritt, Ash

https://www.merrittwellness.com Blood Sugar http://learntruehealth.com/blood-sugar/ Blood sugar levels significantly affect our body. That’s why we have numerous studies explaining why it is vital to maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. To educate us more about blood sugar and how to eat smart, Dr. Marlene Merritt explains all that and more in this episode. Early Exposure Dr. Marlene Merritt shares her mother is German. And because she was suspicious about going to doctors more often, it was normal that from a young age, Dr. Marlene Merritt was given things like chamomile tea to drink for certain discomforts like gastritis. Over time, Dr. Marlene Merritt learned more things such as steamed water with eucalyptus could treat asthma and bronchitis. That’s why she never had too many antibiotics when she was a kid. College Years In college, Dr. Marlene Merritt got into racing bikes in New York.  One day, she got sick, and her friend gave her antibiotics. An infection lodged in her heart and damaged one of her heart valves. Upon consultation with a doctor, Dr. Marlene Merritt was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, a heart condition at the age of 20. She tried prescribed drugs, but it didn’t help much.  Eventually, she gave up racing when her health couldn’t keep up. Discovering Whole Food Nutrition After getting her graduate degree in Oriental Medicine, Dr. Marlene Merritt happened to see a chiropractor/ naturopath who diagnosed her to be Vitamin E deficient. Taking away the Vitamin E capsules she was making that time; he replaced it with a whole food supplement of vitamin E. Thinking she had nothing to lose, Dr. Marlene Merritt followed the doctor’s instructions and started feeling a whole lot better. Dr. Marlene Merritt got strong enough to go cycling again and eventually biked across the United States in 26 days. Her quality of life started getting better and better after that. She still has the valve that doesn’t work, but it doesn’t bother her like it used to. “I started getting healthier with supplements and whole foods. And I have Chinese Medicine’s ability to work with the body as a whole. It put all the pieces together. That trained me well for functional medicine,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. After her health improved, Dr. Marlene Merritt changed the core of her practice to nutrition. She went further by pursuing a Masters’ Degree in Nutrition which took her three years to complete.  Importance Of Supplementation Ultimately, supplementation was a big help to Dr. Marlene Merritt’s health. To illustrate this, she cites Dr. Bruce Ames’ triage theory. “Most people now are sub-clinically malnourished. So, what happens is, we never get full of nutrition. We’re never replete,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. The triage theory shows that our body developed a rationing response to shortages of micronutrients which are vitamins and minerals during our evolution. When our cells run out of a vitamin or mineral, that scarce micronutrient is given to proteins which are essential for short-term survival. On the other hand, proteins that are needed for long-term health and protection of DNA, lose out. They become disabled and lead to diseases of aging. The triage theory also explains how RDAs are chosen. The Truth About Fructose Like what most experts say, Dr. Marlene Merritt says eating sugar causes deficiency. In particular, she says the sugar component fructose does not metabolize the same as glucose does. And to understand all about blood sugar levels, we must first understand how our body processes sugar. “Fructose gets metabolized in the same pathways as alcohol. The other place that you get sugar is in the actual white sugar or brown. The sugar molecule sucrose is half glucose, half fructose. Sugar substitute agave is 90% fructose,” Dr. Marlene Merritt said. She adds, “Fructose turns into fat faster than any other sugar. And a lot of people are for whole grains. That works if you’re not having blood sugar issues. But when somebody has blood sugar issues that involve insulin and overreaction of insulin, then ultimately leads to diabetes, whole grains won’t work for them any longer. So, I often have to work with people about eating lesser carbs even the good ones.” Diet Sodas I’m sure most of us have heard or read that consuming too many diet sodas are bad for us or affects our blood sugar levels.  But surprisingly, Dr. Marlene Merritt says diet coke does not give us diabetes. It’s not causing us blood sugar issues at the moment, but it makes us addicted. Diet sodas and any processed food are engineered to be addictive. To read more about how foods can be addictive, Dr. Marlene Merritt recommends the book, Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss. “I can’t just say something is good or bad. Mostly there has to be some context to it. So, if I can keep an open mind and look at the research, most people don’t know how to find the research or read the research.”  Carbs Intake Dr. Marlene Merritt says fruits, beans, and oatmeal are best eaten in moderation. Because when somebody has blood sugar issues, it does not matter what kind of carb it is, it’s still problematic. And the reason fruit is included in the list is that although fruits don’t cause insulin reaction, the high fructose will damage the liver which speeds up your chances of getting diabetes. “Manage your carb intake. Carbs all break down to sugar.  Some will break down faster,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. “The whole grains break down slower, but it still doesn’t make them not a carb. the main problem is that it causes an insulin reaction. She adds, “And as you go farther into the spectrum of diabetes, it causes more of an insulin reaction. If you have insulin resistance, you cannot burn fat. Insulin is also the most inflammatory biomolecule there is. Plus, insulin also causes food retention. Plant-Based Diet As for plant-based diets, Dr. Marlene Merritt says the term doesn’t mean plants exclusively. Because she says, no culture is entirely vegan. Otherwise, we would have died without supplementation because being vegan is not a natural state. She further explains that one of the things that nutrition research is always kind of a challenge is because of a lot it observational. And observational doesn’t mean it’s wrong.  Instead, what they are looking at is an observation of whether there are other factors involved. “So, when somebody is eating a mostly plant-based diet and that culture, in particular, they have a very high community interaction. That’s social isolation. It affects health like smoking and obesity,” said Dr. Marlene Merritt. Dr. Marlene Merritt also says that with a vegan lifestyle you restrict yourself that much, and you would have died of B12 deficiency. For those who are unaware, the most significant deficiencies are a B12 deficiency, zinc deficiency, iron, vitamin A and many others. Among these, B12 is the most well-known. “I’m not saying don’t eat plants. But rather, I’m saying vegan doesn’t work. That’s why they say plant proteins are not complete proteins,” shares Dr. Marlene Merritt. High Protein Diets But when it comes to high-protein diets, Dr. Marlene Merritt is not a proponent of high-protein diets either. This is because she thinks that we don’t manage meat well in a lot of ways. She also says animal protein doesn’t cause cancer. However, the situation may be different if you are eating conventional meat that is not well-treated, it’s been fed differently, or butchered differently. Dr. Marlene Merritt also shares that the muscle meat has the least amount of nutrition to it. So, she advises choosing the organ meats where the nutrition level is much higher. Cooking Methods Surprisingly, Dr. Marlene Merritt also busts myths about fried foods. She says in fried food like fried chicken; it’s the actual oil that the food is fried in that’s the problem. For frying, Dr. Marlene Merritt says it’s best to use avocado oil or refined coconut oil. As for other cooking methods, there are options like wet cooking which is either steaming, braising, or putting in stews and dry cooking which involves grilling or baking. Between the two, Dr. Marlene Merritt says dry cooking is not the best thing for proteins. When it comes to proper cooking protein like meat, Dr. Marlene Merritt shares that some ways of protecting the beef are adding vinegar or doing a marinade. Furthermore, cooking at a lower temperature is good. Recommended Foods Leafy greens at breakfast is an excellent way to start the day, says Dr. Marlene Merritt. Soups are also one of the most healing things for the gut. And Dr. Marlene Merritt even uses a teaspoon of bone broth for babies or small children who have colic or constipation.  An ideal diet is something that is vegetable heavy with some form of protein. And contrary to chicken breasts, Dr. Marlene Merritt prefers chicken with bones and skin, as well as some meats. For dessert, Dr. Marlene Merritt loves making a mashup of coconut milk, avocado, banana, a tablespoon of chocolate powder, and vanilla-flavored stevia mashed in a food processor. Ultimately, for the best diet for you, Dr. Marlene Merritt strongly suggests finding a Functional Medicine Practitioner who can tell you more about your health. Merritt Wellness Center Dr. Marlene Merritt’s practice offers a lot of services that not only focus on maintaining blood sugar or finding the right diet for you. The Merritt Wellness Center provides services ranging from functional medicine, nutritional testing, and long-distance consultation. They also offer full-body thermography, genetic testing, Chinese and Japanese fertility acupuncture, detox, stress management, and pediatrics. Her website is also filled with articles and schedules for events, lectures, and webinars.  So, I urge everyone to check it out.  Bio Dr. Marlene Merritt, DOM, MS Nutrition received her Masters’ degree in Oriental Medicine in 2000 and is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. She has an additional Masters’ degree in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Bridgeport.  Dr. Marlene Merritt is licensed by the New Mexico Board of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is nationally board certified in Oriental Medicine.

286 Transformational Nutrition, What Happens When You Include Personal, Psychological, and Spiritual Growth to Your Health Journey? Healing Emotional Pain, Trauma, Anxiety, Weight Loss, Food Addiction

www.cynthiapasquella.com http://transformationalnutrition.com   Transformational Nutrition http://learntruehealth.com/transformational-nutrition/ Transformational nutrition teaches us that having optimal health is not just about food. We need to create a more significant conversation for health because food alone won’t fix us. We’re in for such a treat today because Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia teaches the psychology and spirituality of transformation and health. You’ll get to learn how to have a more vibrant life with transformational nutrition. Through The Darkness Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that one time when she was speaking at a women’s conference. She talked about transformation, health, and weight loss as well as how to empower yourself, take control of life and health as a woman. When it was time to have the audience ask questions, a woman asked her how to get through all of the darkness. Another woman openly voiced her doubts about whether Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia could adequately answer the question since she seemed to have such a good life. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s whole life had been a struggle because she grew up in extreme poverty, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and domestic abuse. She was also sexually abused when she was six years old. So, in reality, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia lived a life that required her to be a survivor. Hitting Rock Bottom That’s not all. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia also tried to kill herself by overdosing on pills years ago. She was so sick, had chronic fatigue, was 25 lbs. overweight, had severe acne, memory loss, and brain fog. Naturally, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia was in no condition to work, so she was broke. It didn’t help that she didn’t have family nor many close friends. She recalls living in a constant state of fear and panic. And although she tried many things, nothing helped. One day, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia decided to pull herself up. Taking a shower, she discovered lumps on her breasts, hence hit rock bottom that day. She again felt utterly broken. So she still thought of suicide, suffered from depression and mental health issues. She felt so sick of fighting. “But I heard this voice, and it was my wake call. That voice said, “This hasn’t happened to you. It’s happened to you.” I then realized these things were supposed to be happening for me. Because I realized that at that moment, greatness was my birthright,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.  Investing In Herself Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia ended up signing up for a nutrition certification program when she decided to invest in herself. She went on to other school and training programs. And as her health improved, she slowly began to work with clients. “It’s not just about the food. The food alone will never heal us. There are reasons behind why we know what to do, and yet we still won’t do it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “I also realized we have this deeper hunger. So, understand your spirituality and what you are hungry for.”  She adds, “I started understanding the spiritual connection, relationships and heart connection was so important to healing. That’s when I started to see true transformation.”  Developing Transformational Nutrition From that period, good things started to unfold. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s weight fell off, her skin cleared up, and the lumps in her breasts turned out to be fibers, not cancers. She also started to understand at a deeper level the root cause of her health issues and heart issues. Furthermore, remembering her deal with God, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia got to work and started helping other people. Combining the science of nutrition with the psychology and spirituality nutrition, that’s where she created a method called transformational nutrition. Shortly after she created the transformational nutrition method, more people wanted to dive deeper into learning more about it.  So, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia turned it into a more significant educational focus. She started a school and called it the Institute of Transformational Nutrition. Now, the school certifies people to become transformational nutrition coaches. How To Begin Your Transformation First of all, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what you are and why you are that way. Because ultimately, when you know, you’ll automatically transform into who you’re always meant to be. It’s only then can you step into your power.  “I like to ask people what they are hungry for. And what we’re all hungry for in the end is validation and acceptance for who we are. Usually, we are trying to be a version of ourselves that we think other people want. So we end up pretending our entire lives,” explains Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.  She adds, “We are compromising who we are and what we want, as well as the things that truly make us happy. You don’t have transformation if you don’t experience some biological change, some spiritual change, and some psychological change. You have to develop a deeper understanding and a deeper truth that you can truly embody before you truly heal.” Ultimately, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says it’s really about getting out of your head and into your heart. She says we tend to be logical, but that’s not the way we work. Instead, we make all of our decisions based on emotions and then we use logic to back it up. Understanding Emotions Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia shares that in reality, emotions only last for 90 seconds. Because the thing that makes it last longer are the stories that you keep replaying in your head about the experience. “A belief is made up of three things. It’s the event that happened, the emotion that you felt and the explanation that you gave it,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “So when you are feeling these emotions, go back to the explanations that you gave it. I think we have to remember if we want to be understood, we need to understand.”  How We Deal With Negativity As humans, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says we have this thing called negativity bias. It’s when we hear something negative, we latch on to it and see that as the truth. We then spend the rest of our lives searching for evidence that the belief is true. “It’s just the way we’re built. And it’s designed to protect us. It is designed to show us our flaws. So just let it go and stop beating yourself up,” advises Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia.  She adds, “We are just hardwired to pay more attention to negative information than positive information. Then it goes back to the most basic need which is just survival. When there has been extreme trauma in a person’s life, they can block the memory out, and the brain won’t remember.” Blocking The Trauma Our brain is indeed a very powerful organ. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia personally witnessed it when her sister did not remember having a child after a car accident, and her child passed away. “The body’s number one goal is to stay alive. And the brain knows that. So, if the brain knows something that the body can’t handle, it just blocks it out. And you won’t remember it,” Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia said. Essentially, Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says you have to understand what’s going on in your mind and your spirit if you genuinely want to heal. Because it is very powerful. “See what serves you, and always look within yourself for that truth. But if you don’t ever live your truth, you’re always going to be imprisoned by other people’s opinions. You will always be hungry for that one thing you don’t have.” Numbing The Pain When you numb pain, you numb joy. Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia says when you are numbing that past that caused trauma and the fear you felt from that, you’re numbing happiness and bliss.  So mostly, you’re taking away all of your power and giving it to the past, and that’s not okay. “You’ll never be able to fill those void with anything other than what’s missing in the first place,” said Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia. “Food is so acceptable. So is the glorification of wine and drinking especially for moms and entrepreneurs. Because it is socially acceptable. We have to be willing to get back into the driver’s seat of our own life.”  She adds, “We’re here because we follow the status quo. But the real reason why we’re here is because we gave up our power. It’s time to do something different and time to start understanding. Furthermore, it’s a time to reconnect with who you are and a time to share and understand.” Transformational Nutrition Website If you wish to get on that road to begin transformational nutrition, check out Cynthia Pasquella-Garcia’s website for more information.

Melissa's Podcast: https://mindlove.com Mind Love http://learntruehealth.com/mind-love Having a positive mindset is sometimes tricky when we are overwhelmed with problems and challenging situations. Even when it feels hopeless, we can still learn how to push ourselves to embrace a positive mindset. My guest Melissa Monte is such a fantastic person.  She survived the worst situations all because of a positive mindset, and she’ll teach us how to do that in the episode. Traumatic Years Although Melissa Monte had a great childhood, her life took a drastic turn when she experienced several traumas during her teens. Melissa Monte was raped twice, her close friend committed suicide, and her dad passed away. Melissa Monte and her mom had different ways of coping.  Her mom was part of a book club. So, even if Melissa Monte dealt with her traumas by partying a lot in college, she managed to borrow books from her mother occasionally. But it wasn’t enough to help her fix her issues or have a positive mindset. “Because of ignoring some of those issues I was dealing with, it started to manifest in my life in other ways. I developed a dangerous eating disorder. And I was a bulimic for eight years,” said Melissa Monte. She added, ” I was also attracting negative people. Plus, I found myself in jail for my ex-boyfriend’s crime, which led to a two-year legal battle. When I hit rock bottom, I knew I had to do something.” Baby Steps Melissa Monte said she took baby steps by reading books, following advice from successful people, and applied it to her life. She says it was not an overnight change, but more like a decade of growth. As time went one, Melissa Monte felt that it started to become essential for her to share the things she did. Because apparently, people started asking and noticing significant differences in her. Hence, Melissa Monte did some steps to realize her full purpose. “Everything has been different in the last year. Because everything feels so much more meaningful to me. It’s easier to keep my goals now and keep making progress. That’s how Mind Love podcast came about. It’s sharing tips that changed my life,” Melissa Monte said. Learning To Forgive Melissa Monte says the first thing about having a positive mindset is learning how to forgive. In her case, Melissa Monte’s parents divorced young. Although she has a great stepdad, she felt resentful towards her real dad. When Melissa Monte’s dad was diagnosed with cancer, that’s the time she made more effort to connect. One of the things that surprised her was a large number of homeless people came to her father’s funeral. That’s the moment of clarity that added to Melissa Monte’s guilt of never understanding. Hence, she felt that the first step to a positive mindset and change was to forgive herself for that. “Forgiveness is such a big part of any change. Because without forgiveness, you will only be repeating negative thought patterns in your head all the time. You’re going to be talking yourself down,” explains Melissa Monte. Melissa Monte did the same thing with the suicide situation. She revealed that her friend said he was going to commit suicide years before. But Melissa Monte, who was then only 15 years old, didn’t take it seriously.  She thought it was the typical teenagers’ way of getting attention. For the longest time, she blamed herself and learned to drink because of that tragedy. “Everything is a process, and I realize how important it is to have compassion for yourself. Once I did, that opened the door for all the other changes that mean a lot to me,” said Melissa Monte. “Like finding the passion or understanding of how the brain works and working with that. All the little things add up.”  Developing Habits Melissa Monte says that one of the books that helped her was the Power of Habit, by award-winning New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg. Because at her lowest point, Melissa Monte was just taken over by so many harmful habits like bulimia. “Bulimia is a series of activities that you do over and over again, and it is a habit that takes over your life. And it’s like a psychological disorder,” Melissa Monte said. “I also used to bite my nails until they bled. It was my biggest insecurity, and I couldn’t figure out how to stop.” But when Melissa Monte started to read about changing and disrupting these circuits that you put your brain into, something just clicked. She began to experiment on what works for her. “I think the biggest thing that started to influence my changes were developing positive routines positively. Try to do the replacement method and change one small thing that’s doable,” said Melissa Monte. Changing Her Diet One thing Melissa Monte gave up was coffee and switched it to Macha latte instead. The same thing happened with regards to changing her diet. She went vegan and started making small steps like changing breakfast. “Eggs was the last thing I gave up. I make a lot of things in bulk because I don’t like buying processed foods,” said Melissa Monte. “Making food with a pressure cooker is good. I often make beans and quinoa, keep in the fridge while my husband often makes superfoods scramble with kale.” Self Journal The very first thing that Melissa Monte added to her routine that was helpful is her 5-minute gratitude journal. She recommends the journals from Best Self. Melissa Monte writes to focus on the right things happening in her life. Because ultimately, she says our brain starts seeking things to be grateful for throughout the day, and then they shift your focus. It also makes you aware to have a positive mindset. “Journaling allows you to write down lessons learned. It forces you to acknowledge where you could have done better and keep track of your wins and accomplishments. Journaling also sometimes helps you look back and see how far you’ve come,” Melissa Monte said.  Good Support System To develop a positive mindset and build personal growth, it is advisable to get yourself surrounded by people who can make you be the best version of you.  Melissa Monte found herself enjoying the company of the people participating in Toastmasters International. Toastmasters International is an organization where people are encouraged to speak to an audience about a variety of topics. According to Melissa Monte, many of the participants have inspiring stories that can serve as tools for your growth. “So many of us start to practice something and keep doing it over and over. People say practice makes perfect but not always. The right kind of practice makes perfect,” said Melissa Monte. She adds, “I’m a strong believer in being selective on who you spend time with. Because people are either going to lift you up or drag you down. That’s probably one of the biggest things I noticed from my growth. It’s cool when you find your light and shining. And it’s infectious.” Another great organization is We Quilt. They have chapters in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. We quilt an organization where women uplift each other. Being Patient Melissa Monte again stresses that results are not seen overnight.  She says everything might feel fake at first. And that when you first make a change, it might feel phony building a new habit. But then she also says you have a limited amount of energy so use it wisely. Just don’t let energy vampires suck that out of you. “Not everyone is meant to be around forever, and people have their purpose up to a certain time. It’s ok to let go of not only people but also new habits if it doesn’t make you grow,” said Melissa Monte. Shark Bait Test Melissa Monte shares that one of the biggest game changers for her was the Shark Bait Test where you write a letter to a bunch of people that you know. In Melissa Monte’s case, she wrote to eleven people from different walks of her life. She asked them what they saw in her, and what her superpower was. Melissa Monte feels this was one of her most significant aha moments to finding her Mind Love podcast. Six people wrote almost the same word that Melissa Monte was supposedly good at. So, Melissa Monte did the work to figure out what her perfect little path would be.  “I used to think that just because I was always learning, that it was automatically being applied to my life. You have to make time to apply it,” said Melissa Monte. She adds, “Be thankful for the journey no matter what you’re going through. You might not realize the purpose of something until even ten years down the road. Just trust the process.” Mindfulness To further connect with yourself, Melissa Monte suggests picking three things each day that you are thankful for. It forces you to be more strategic on those things that can move you towards your goal rather than just picking what’s more comfortable. “Mindfulness is a big part of my life. I’ve been meditating for twenty minutes every day. This helps clear your head and define stillness,” Melissa Monte explains. “It’s been scientifically proven that people who meditate, basically have more control over their emotions.” Mind Love Podcast Melissa Monte’s Mind Love podcast aims to dive deep into your inner self really and how you should feel about yourself. Being mindful can also help us have a healthier sex life. So many emotions go through our body. When we know how to be open and communicate with our partner, that positivity can radiate and strengthen our feminine power. One book that Melissa Monte recommends reading is Pussy: A Reclamation. The book goes into the history of women and stresses that women have been powerful beings from the beginning of time. “We carry the energy that creates life, and we create life with our body. There are so many powerful things. It’s important to share these stories and remind women of their power. Show them they’re not alone,” said Melissa Monte. She adds, “It is important to share stories with people and help somebody else through it. If you have come out at the other end of that struggle, you must help people. Throw a lifeline to those people who are at the beginning of that tunnel. Pull them with you. It’s how we evolve as a species even faster.”  Bio Melissa Monte is one of today’s influential and thought-provoking explorers of the mindset and positive energy.  Melissa’s has lived through what some call extreme life experience, suffering multiple traumas in a short period, which eventually manifested into a dangerous eating disorder and chronic intestinal damage.  Her countless hours of research and self-experimentation guided by her desire to heal her body and mind contribute to her vast knowledge of improving the human condition.  On her popular, heartfelt podcast “Mind Love,” she discusses mindset shifts, modern mindfulness and the universal truths of success through raw stories, personal experience, and inspiring interviews.
