Why does a Microbiome Matter to me?

Posted In:
Featured

Microbiomes, a more recent discovery in scientific research, are showing us the importance of microbes in our body systems. Microbes are those things you may think are pesky such as parasites, fungus, bacteria and viruses. A microbiome refers to the landscape balance between microbes on the inside lining of various body systems (neighborhoods); oral, gastrointestinal, urogenital, respiratory and skin. Picture it’s like a neighborhood and you want all your neighbors to live in peace and harmony. Imagine if you suffer from or have compromises in any of these body systems and what it might mean to you if science actually could now explain a long term immune support deficiency in allowing your body’s own innate wisdom to address imbalances.

The microbes live in the body surfaces or environments mentioned above. But, we should actually like these. They can help balance our body systems. But so many chemicals, anti-bacterial etc. attacks on these critters have caused them to turn unfriendly. This can lead to an imbalance in our immune system which allows dis-ease or disharmony to affect our body. That is why chemical free products (like Thieves Household Cleaner) are so important for cleaning etc.

The microbiome plays a powerful role in our health. Each person has a unique microbiome that is impacted by your own environment whether physical or emotional. The microbiome communicates with the cells in their neighborhood. This could be between immune system cells, endocrine cells, nervous system cells etc. This neighborhood talk then gets communicated to the brain. This is when brain function and emotions can get majorly impacted. The microbes also talk amongst themselves.

Healthy microbiomes help our immune systems be strong. They help to make friendly microbes to help fight threats. It is these that help lower reactions such as allergies and intolerances that could lead to inflammation. Where there is inflammation in the body, there is pain. These good guys support the immune system to help keep the bad bugs away.

So what does this mean to you? If you have chronic or acute illness with the various body systems mentioned above as microbiome categories, there is a good chance that you would benefit from having your microbiome balance evaluated. The good news is that you have the opportunity to support your immune system with this new found scientific research.

Find out how BodyTalk can help you strengthen and balance these microbiomes so you can live more in harmony with the critters designed to have a mutually beneficial relationship.

Awaken the Sleeping Giant Within You!

Posted In:
Uncategorized

Do you feel like you are wandering through your life? Maybe you don’t know what direction to go in next? Are you confused? Unaware or what to do or where you need to go next? Have you ever noticed people walking through a parking lot completely unaware of the oncoming car as they walk down the middle of the aisle?

I work with clients in my practice daily and encourage them to get in tune with their world and especially their body. The lack of awareness you see in someone in the parking lot will also mimic the kind of awareness people have around their body. The work I do in my practice works best when my clients are in tune and know what they want out of life and then I facilitate helping them get to that goal; health, family, career etc.

My clients complete a questionnaire and I ask them; What are your goals? What do you want to achieve? What do you want to look different in your life? We then go to work and help their body move through blocks keeping them from that achievement; physical, emotional and spiritual. They then ask, “what should I expect now that the session is done?” I tell them any change is a good thing.

I ask them to look for things like this:

Change in appetite, change in bowel habits, change in sleep patterns, change in moods, change in relationships, change in body parts, flexibility, changes in breathing patterns, changes in energy levels, what foods are you craving, do you have an decrease in gas and bloating, do you experience more headaches, what smells do you want to smell or avoid, is your stomach gurgling more than normal, who did you blow-up at, who are you more patient with, who are you more angry at, who at your work quit for a new opportunity?

Get the point? The possibilities are endless. Any change is what I need you looking for to increase your awareness and awaken the possibilities inside you. And the more you become aware of how your body, God, the universe is trying to communicate with you the sooner you are on the road to recovery and no longer floundering in the parking lot wandering aimlessly without attention to your path or dangers around you.

I gave you a big list of things to notice because nobody gave me this list when I started my health and wellness journey. I had very talented practitioners all around me that would speak of their “big shifts and changes” yet never really explained to me or understood my complete and total unawareness of my own body. One of my very dear friends said to me recently, “You always seemed like you had a spirit that wanted to know so much in a body without an owner’s manual.” It was a great description. She added, “It’s more fun to communicate with you now because we never have to say a word.”

Test your awareness. Ask another person to do this exercise with you. Look at them for 20 seconds. Then ask them to leave the room and change 5 things; maybe the remove one earring, flip their hair a different way, roll up a sleeve. Then ask them to return and see what you notice in the next 20 seconds. Were you aware?

My clients need to be willing to awaken and notice these kind of changes in order for me to work with them. My observation is that the ones that have awakened their physical body are the ones that make the biggest shifts in their life to achieve their desires. And since I completely understand that not everyone has awareness from the get go, I am sharing a great tool, Awaken Essential Oil. I call it my awareness oil. This oil is to help you become aware of limitless potential. It stimulates right brain creativity, supports the function of the pineal and pituitary glands in balancing the energy centers of the body and helps us identify our true desires and how best to pursue them. It is the first step toward making positive life changes.

I don’t believe any of us set out in life to become unaware. I believe we are so bombarded by stimuli that we actually “check out” meanwhile our bodies are screaming at us until our attention is achieved when a serious health scenario hits. Awaken your sleeping giant and listen to your body guiding you to your fullest potential. To learn more about this oil and its constituents that remove blocks and awaken greater awareness watch this recorded webinar: Awaken Essential Oil Webinar.

Is Your Excess Weight Really Your Fault?

Posted In:
Blog

scale

I’ll be the first to take responsibility for proper eating habits. However, if you have struggled with excess weight, I think it would be a great disservice if you were not aware of some of the latest research. In particular, science is now proving that some of your weight concerns may be epigenetic factors or impacted by changes in your daily routine that can make a significant difference for you.

Yes, it is true that it’s important to make good food choices. And that can be challenging at certain times of the year, at certain events, and even when there are factors in your life that are out of your immediate control. However, one of the biggest issues working against many people for weight and metabolism is hormone imbalance. These can be brought on by factors such as stress and epigenetics.

Stress is a tremendous factor in properly managing weight and metabolism. Hormones do a lot to control multiple communications and pathways in multiple body systems. When stress is out of control, weight management will be a challenge. Some of the main stress hormones which you have probably heard of such as cortisol and adrenaline will literally be demanded by the body to get you through stressful times. As these hormones compete to bring on the necessary energy to face the stress, cravings for carbohydrates may increase and these sugars will only provide a temporary fix. And shortly after, the crash will hit from the sugar “high” ending. Not to mention, some processed foods are made with ingredients that will increase the addiction to the processed food you are eating, requiring you to eat more to be satisfied.

One recommendation for addressing cortisol and adrenaline imbalances is the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Exercise. It only takes 15 minutes and equates to four hours of sleep! And NO, “Type A” people, it is not recommended that you do this twice a day to equal your eight hours of sleep rather than actually sleeping eight hours. However, this is a maintenance program and supports the sleep you should be trying to get. It supports proper rest to help the hormones get to a more balanced way of operating, and can lead to more restful sleep as you continue to practice it. Until the actual source of the stress is addressed, however, through your body chemistry, your sleep may go unchanged and your weight will stay the same or even increase.

Epigenetics also has a tremendous amount to do with weight maintenance. Be sure to check out my prior blog on epigenetics to get some background on this topic. Basically, lifestyle events that may have happened to you or your ancestors cause epigenetic “locks” that prevent your weight and metabolism hormones from properly communicating. Let me give you an example.

You would probably agree that it would not be uncommon for an ancestor of yours to have experienced a famine or shortage of food in their lifetime, right? Just think back four generations ago and you will see that it’s very possible for a famine or shortage of food to be in your family history from another part of the world. It is extremely common to find that stressors such as these created epigenetic locks that caused weight and metabolism hormones to operate differently than they were originally intended to operate. Literally locking down the genes from transcribing correctly. And what if because of that food shortage, your ancestor had to teach his body how to manage food and calories differently than you might have to today in our modern world? And what if that ancestor passed that information to you through your genes? See how this works?

An example like the one above is why I ask the question, “Is your excess weight really your fault”? Did you have a family member in your history that set your hormones on a path that communicates to your brain that you are never satisfied or are always hungry? This might also come into play with addictions to drugs, alcohol and even sexual addictions. The great news is that this incorrect hormone communication, when epigenetically caused, can be greatly supported for correction in a BodyTalk session. We do this by applying priority based healthcare.

Another example could be a toxin or body chemistry imbalance you were exposed to or an ancestor was exposed to that locked your genes from properly transcribing the code to tell your cells how to create themselves in a healthy manner. See my article on toxins and your weight.

So there you have it. You are not overweight simply because you eat too much and are a couch potato. While this is true for some, obesity has not been treated as a serious health issue but rather has been blamed on the overweight individual. So let’s address that now…research shows that metabolic hormone imbalances make people have low energy and increases their appetite. The biology underneath all this is driving the lazing and overeating behaviors. There are even six month olds that are obese. Having said this, isn’t it encouraging to know that you don’t have to beat yourself up anymore? There may be a very real metabolic reason for your condition.

Through a BodyTalk Session or Priority Based HealthCare we can evaluate dozens of factors that could be causing your inability to stay at a healthy weight. This work can be done in person or long distance using video conferencing. Call to schedule your appointment today.

Is Your Environment Making You Ill? The Epigenetic Factor

Posted In:
Blog

Is your environment, physical and/or emotional, impacting your health?

Epigenetics might be the answer

The latest in scientific research is identifying how environmental factors can modify how our genes are expressed. The study of this is known as epigenetics. Let’s be sure not to confuse genetics with epigenetics.

Psychobiologist, Robert Lickliter, PhD. wrote: The study of epigenetics is …

  • How gene expression changes during cell differentiation AND…
  • How environmental factors can modify how our genes are expressed

Genetics are an inherited predisposition from our biological ancestors. They represent the master blueprint, are stable and identical in every cell of the body. Genetics are IN the genetic code and carry on our traits through generations. It’s what our parents and other ancestors pass on to us.

Epigenetics shows incredible adaptability, flexibility, and is very much impacted by lifestyle. How our daily life experiences, stressors, active memories and biochemical priorities influence our health. Not just our health, but the health of our great-great-grandchildren!

Epigenetics are ON the genetic code and can be turned on and off like a light switch for lack of a better term. And for those of you wondering how this works if you were adopted, even your parents that adopted you had the opportunity to influence your epigenetics through the environment in which you were raised.

Our physiology can get locked into imbalance. It’s similar to when a client says to me “…and once that happened, this problem started and never went away.” What are Epigenetic locks you might be asking? Epigenetic locks look like the following:

  • Diet deficiencies or bad habits
  • Seasonal correlation concerns
  • Disease exposure
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Drugs or abuse
  • Financial status
  • Exercise deficiencies
  • Microbiome imbalances (see prior blogs on microbiome)
  • Therapeutic drugs
  • Alternative medicine
  • Social interactions
  • Psychological state

What does an imbalance look like in the body? It looks like dis-ease or disharmony. Any disease is possible, but consider this statistic.

NCI breast cancer statistics indicate that genetics have 5-10% to do with creating the disease in the body, but 90-95% is actually created by your epigenetic makeup.

This is an amazing discovery by our scientists.

So what does all this mean for you? Consider the 12 factors earlier in this article. If you have a serious disharmony in your body and you believe that one or more of those 12 factors previously mentioned have a role in your history, then epigenetics is a very important topic for you to explore.

Learn how, together, we can explore and unlock, in a noninvasive way, lifestyle influences and your epigenetic locks for the benefit of yourself and your children. Don’t delay, call to set up your customized epigenetics session.

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Posted In:
Uncategorized

Have I told you lately that the work I get to do in my practice absolutely fascinates me? My clients have such an amazing desire to want to see change in their world and together we create magnificent results.

The theme of my practice has always been, “Oh, The Places You’ll Go!” Yes, the one by Dr. Seuss! I especially like the cover with the little character sitting on top of what looks like an inverted vortex. Ever feel like your world was caught up in a vortex?

Just ask my clients. They will tell you that where we end up or what we work on to address a health ailment is RARELY on their radar screen. In fact, I often feel bad for allopathic medicine practitioners because they are not taught the connection between the physical body and the rest of what makes you who you are. You know, the full you; spirit, soul, body, mind, will and emotions. That is why so many leave a practitioner’s office and never really seem to have good answers.

It would not be unusual for someone to experience a painful left ankle and for us to determine that it links to their kidney or perhaps a fear around losing their mother. I have worked with many that have bladder incontinence issues and we had to work on generational emotional hurts. These were not things my clients directly created, yet ailments passed through to them on their DNA. That is where epigenetics comes in. It may surface much later in life. All the body needs are the right circumstances set in motion or the right swamp to grow the disease or ailment.

I have worked with incontinence issues in people that have active memories of being bullied or exposed to high amounts of fear in their life. Once we allowed the body to clear those memories from that body part (usually the kidneys), their incontinence issues cleared also.

I have a number of resources on my website that will help explain this phenomenon, but it comes from the science of applied kinesiology for starters and then sprinkle in some acupuncture and don’t forget to add that our creator created one amazing body.

Let’s talk about applied kinesiology (AK). This is the science that I was first introduced to when I started my health journey. Some people refer to this as muscle testing, but the true AK practitioners know it is far more than that. In this science, they study how all the muscles in the body are related to different glands and organs so if one or the other is experiencing an imbalance it could lead to an imbalance in a totally unrelated (or so it seems) part of the body. Most people have been exposed to this concept through reflexology where the body parts are represented by areas on the feet.

An example. Let’s say your low back is hurting. It could be that your psoas muscle is not hydrated enough. You might experience kidney infections because this muscle relates to the kidney. You might also experience fear issues like I mentioned above and the kidney loves to store fear. This person might experience a power drain or uneasiness between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. And they might think it’s just because they had a long work day. Your low back requires that psoas muscle to be in good working order because it attaches into your hip. When you are not drinking enough water, that muscle is compromised and causes you to start engaging other muscles to compensate. Back to the low back pain and thinking it’s because you had a long day at work. Eventually, your shoe store expert starts to recognize that your shoe soles always wear out on a certain side of the heel. Hmmm. I just described 90% of the population that is dehydrated! And did anyone connect that this all related to low back pain? Isn’t that amazing? Learn more about how the kidney can impact your world and follow the links to other organs you may want to learn more about.

Your body is built on thousands of connections like this and every body part relates to other body parts so if one is out of harmony, others will be out of harmony also like an orchestra. Now, I’m sure the theme of my practice makes a little more sense. “Oh the Places, You’ll Go!”

To learn more about the underlying issues of your health conditions, set an appointment so you can discover all the places you’ll go to bring your body back to balance. All sessions can be done in person or live via video conferencing.

What are others saying about BodyTalk Access?

Posted In:
Uncategorized

It was the first time I was in an emergency situation like that, and having just had your workshop, the first thing I did was started tapping the head and heart simultaneously, while others were trying to get her attention, lying her down, etc. It wasn’t until we had her down on the floor that I began to get really concerned because she wasn’t pulling out (her eyes were open but unfocused and she had no muscle control)… I had forgotten (in my stress) to hold the positions on the head, I was just tapping consistently on head and heart. When we got her to the floor I switched to her ears and within a couple of minutes she regained consciousness. I am grateful to have had both of these techniques to fall back on even tho I didn’t perform the Fast Aid correctly. I hope because of this experience that I will be calmer and more centered should that ever happen again.

DB – Tyler, TX

Approximately 6 weeks after taking Body Talk Access I was able to experience first hand what a huge benefit taking this class was. I was traveling to Haiti and on my return flight from Port au Prince a lady had huge pains on, what looked like, her appendix area. The flight attendants asked if there was a doctor on board and if so if he/she could go to the back of the plane. I automatically thought that the First Aid technique might work on alleviating her pain. So after I saw that the doctor left the passenger, I walked back there and told the flight attendants that I would like to try this tapping head & heart technique so that the brain could send messages to the affected area in hopes to relieving her pain. Both flight attendants and passenger in pain agreed. The first round of tapping the cortices, the passenger had a cold forehead. Second round, while she held the area affected, I had noticed that her forehead was warmer. Third and fourth round the head was hot. I was very excited to feel this change. After I was done the passenger said she felt much better. The flight attendants asked if I was a Therapist….and I told them “no.” But what an advantage to know this!!! Folks, this made a huge difference to this poor lady in pain. Even the doctor on board could not help her. Paramedics were on the runway when we landed, so I don’t know what happened later, but I do know that her pain was drastically lessened by providing this Fast Aid Technique!!!

– AG – Garland, TX

My daughter sprained her ankle early in a soccer tournament, we tapped out the Fast Aid Technique once and she was able to resume play for the rest of the weekend.

-Cathy- Plano, TX

I watched a calm come over my autistic son in seconds while the cortices technique was performed on him. This in invaluable!

–Brent – McKinney, TX

What a miracle. I had a Charlie horse on my thigh for over two weeks from a tennis injury. I was getting ready to set an appointment with my Dr. when my friend tapped out BodyTalk Access. It was better within a couple of hours.

–Tammy – Plano, TX

I used to get some kind of cold/flu every season. Last year, I started tapping out the Body Chemistry technique each time I encountered someone that was already sick. I have not had a cold since. What a value and savings to not have to go to the doctor!

– Marie

Lynn’s work is amazing! One afternoon I called her because I gotten had a severe, sudden onset bladder infection with no warning whatsoever. Not only was there bleeding, but small blood clots as well. She did a distance session on me and I quite literally felt the shift. The infection and all its symptoms were completely gone!

AND

I took my 10-year old daughter to see Lynn for a long-standing respiratory issue. Every year, just about the time school starts, she would begin having massive sinus drainage and eventually it would turn into a respiratory infection that would require antibiotics. The condition would get beat back, but never really clear. It was a cycle of drainage, infection, antibiotics. By the time we left Lynn’s office, my daughter’s sinus drainage and cold-like symptoms were totally gone. It has been 2 weeks now and she may blow her nose in the morning, but if so she requires only 1 Kleenex, not the 10 or 12 she was using before. She has no more drainage during the day and no longer believes she has allergies, which is what people kept telling her.
