Calm Your Anxiety

Calm Your Anxiety

You don’t HAVE to be so anxious!

What if there were easier ways to cope with stress and anxiety than the burden (and expense) of over-the-counter drugs?

So many people who experience anxiety simply aren’t aware that there IS an alternative state of mind to feeling stressed all the time, WITHOUT depending on costly pharmaceuticals to do so.

For centuries, holistic medicine has treated those experiencing symptoms of anxiety, stress, and depression with all-natural methods of alleviating stress, and this webinar, Calm Your Anxiety, on Thursday, April 11th at 8:00 pm CDT will help you to understand exactly how! If you can't make the date go ahead and register so we can send you the replay link for the webinar.

Experiencing the Healing Nature of… Nature!

Human beings have been treating one another with herbal and natural medicines all over the world since time began, with the goal of using all available resources to target specific physical, mental, and emotional imbalances which give rise to what we know today as ‘illness’.

The concept of natural medicine isn’t complicated - in fact, it’s the opposite. There are many simple and natural lifestyle changes you can make to help alleviate the symptoms of stress and anxiety such as learning how to recognize your triggers as well as to maintain your grasp on them when they arise.
Getting to know your individual needs and treating them accordingly is what holistic experts (like our team) will assess and recommend.

This is all possible without the use of manufactured or generic pharmaceuticals (an industry in itself which gives rise to anxiety at just the mere thought of), and on Thursday, April 11th at 8:00 pm CDT we’ll be going through some of the most impactful adjustments and treatments you can make to find what works for YOU.

What is OUR MOTIVATION?

We are motivated to help spread awareness of holistic remedies and treatments simply because we believe it to be THE most natural and beneficial way to care for ourselves and our families. There are less expensive, more effective, and healthier ways to treat stress and anxiety than by depending on pills, and we believe that everybody deserves the chance to get to know themselves and their own requirements.

What works for one person might not work for another, so cultivating AWARENESS of the vast expanse of holistic medicine we feel is vital to achieving optimum individual health. By achieving optimum individual health, we contribute to the optimized health and wellbeing of our entire communities as a whole and elevate the potential and impact we have in the world. It’s about empowering ourselves and our families to function to our highest energetic and creative capacity, using what we were given to naturally exist and give back to the world.

Brain Boosting Superfoods – Turmeric and Tea

Brain Super Food

Brain Boosting Superfoods – Turmeric and Tea

Brain Super Food

Did you know 43 million people will have dementia by 2030 and that number is expected to grow to 73 million people?  Did you also know that Alzheimer’s is not hereditary and it is the disease people are most concerned about after cancer?  When most people think about aging, dementia often comes to mind. What if you could pick up everyday items at the grocery store that would help keep your brain healthy?

Did you know there are eight superfoods specifically for your brain health?

In this article, we will explore two of them with more to come in future blogs.  What are they? What are the benefits of each superfood and why do you need them? Let’s explore the superfoods that help combat Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The people of India have one of the lowest cases of Alzheimer’s and Dementia in the world and they use a lot of our first superfood, Turmeric.  Turmeric is not only a superfood, but it may prevent or help reverse the signs of Alzheimer’s. The easiest way to use and absorb Turmeric is mixing it with black pepper when cooking or seasoning your meals. Turmeric’s orange color comes from curcumin which helps aging blood vessels increase blood flow to the brain. Turmeric is also believed to be a potent anti-inflammatory.

turmeric brain healthIt is important to get a very good source of turmeric and in the correct amounts.

 I can tell you that the processing of turmeric is becoming tainted as with all manufacturing processes that look for a “score” for sales in the open market.  The blend of the entire turmeric root must be sourced properly to maintain its life force. You can’t isolate the curcumin. And that is what is happening now in the industry.  Nutraceutical manufacturers are isolating the curcumin to develop a marketing scheme to say it is more “potent”. Really? More potent than in its natural form working in conjunction with the rest of the parts of the root that actually causes the plant to grow and repopulate itself year after year?  Now, how much sense does that make? This is why you have to know that all the parts of the root that make it so powerful are still intact by the time you get them in your supplement or spice. So the bottom line, in order to get the full benefit of healing plant chemicals, your supplement must contain the whole plant material, grown organically, harvested at peak nutritional richness, and processed without heat or chemicals to maintain the life force of the plants as only nature can provide.  When done this way, all nutrients are 100% naturally synergistic-they naturally support or enhance each other for maximum healing. And this is super critical for turmeric/curcumin.  

My source for Turmeric is from MediHerb (Standard Process) because I know it has curcumin your body can actually use and process. They process the root correctly, but, it is only available to healthcare professionals.  However, if you want to know if this suggestion is right for you, please ask our office for access to our online health assessment where you will receive a free report identifying the best supplement recommendation for you.  We will then work with you through our Patient Direct Program to allow you the convenience to order this high-quality product and others as needed to complete a well-rounded nutritional protocol unique to you.

Can you get all this from the spices in the store and use them while cooking?  

Only if you know that the same keys above were used to harvest what you are buying for your spice rack.  And then, of course, you have to make sure the amount you are getting is the recommended dosage which may be difficult to put all in your favorite dish and still get the flavor you are desiring.  And how do you know if what you are taking is enough or is working for you? We have a great brain cell assessment tool that actually will measure aspects of cell health that will be a good indicator if what you are doing is actually working to address your health.  These tests can be performed in our office or long distance so please check out more details to determine if your steps toward health are actually working.

Another warrior in the fight against Alzheimer’s and Dementia is Tea.  

There are four types of tea: black, oolong, white and green. If you are looking for the highest level of antioxidants, lowest levels of caffeine and least processed, try the white and green teas.  Tea drinkers tend to have a lower rate of Alzheimer’s Disease. Try to keep your tea as pure as possible and go easy on the honey and lemon so you can enjoy all the health benefits of the tea. Drink hot tea over cold tea because you reap what you steep.  Warmer drinks are also really good for digestion and absorption. You may not know this, but it is also important to steep at the proper temperature to get the best benefit. It really does taste better too!

  • Green tea 175 degrees
  • White tea 180 degrees
  • Oolong tea 190 degrees
  • Black tea 212 degrees

As with Turmeric, sourcing and proper harvesting of the tea leaves is very important to get the proper Slique Teanutrients to uptake into the body.  I recommend the following tea called Slique that not only has oolong tea, but also frankincense in it which is also a very good anti-inflammatory.  It also tastes really good with properties to address satisfying your hunger as well. So this is two powerful healing traits in one.

So there you have the first two brain boosting superfoods that will help fight off Alzheimer’s and Dementia:  Tea and Turmeric. No prescriptions and no need for specialty stores. Two items you can incorporate immediately that will give you a lifetime of benefits provided they are sourced properly.

BrainSpanI strongly encourage you to contact our office to get your baseline brain cell assessment to identify your age-related cell degeneration and cognitive decline.   

This assessment will help you determine if what you are currently doing is moving you in a positive direction. By the way, this is not just about getting Dementia or Alzheimer’s.  This is measuring your cell health as it may also relate to: Attention and Behavior, Memory, Weight-Loss, Chronic Pain, Performance, Concussion resiliency (Stroke too) and Pregnancy.  Learn more by watching this video.

What Is The Ketogenic Diet

Blog | Diet/Nutrition | Nutrition

Keto 101

What Is The Ketogenic Diet?

A ketogenic diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet.Ketogenic Diet Keto 101

“A keto or ketogenic diet,” described by Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, a Swedish doctor specializing in family medicine, “is a very low-carb diet, which turns the body into a fat-burning machine. It has many proven benefits for weight loss, health, and performance…”

Ketones are small molecules produced in the liver and used as fuel throughout the body.

“On a ketogenic diet,” Dr. Eenfeldt writes, “your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat. Insulin levels become very low, and fat burning increases dramatically. It becomes easy to access your fat stores to burn them off. This is obviously great if you’re trying to lose weight, but there are also other less obvious benefits, such as less hunger and a steady supply of energy.”

If you'd like to learn more about the Ketogenic Diet join us on Thursday, January 3rd at 8:00 pm CST, for a free webinar. We will explore some of the benefits of a ketogenic diet in detail. We will also provide the tools to help get you started on your way to healthy living.

Why This Is A Must Attend...

Do you want to experience improved mental focus and clarity, an unlimited flow of energy, appetite control, assist in abdominal fat loss, decreased inflammation, decrease in arthritic pain and increased fat burning?

Our goal with this webinar is to discuss how a ketogenic diet can benefit your life by aiding in weight loss, appetite suppression, and by reducing the risk of dangerous afflictions like Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Disease.

The Ketogenic Diet has taken the world by storm and the reason for the growing popularity of this lifestyle are the results people are able to achieve without making any compromises. During our time together we will explain the ketogenic diet, help you determine if it is right, and get you started.

Hosted by: Lynn & Keith Morales

Outside Of Answering Your Questions, Here Are The Topics We Will Cover:

We will share the necessary steps you’ll need to take to start living a ketogenic lifestyle, including food lists and recipes to get you started. In particular, you will learn the following...

-Definition of a ketogenic diet
-What keto is NOT
-How keto improves health
-Different styles of keto
-Basic food guide of what to eat (and what not to eat) on a ketogenic diet.

Emotional Regulation With TiPi

Emotional Regulation using Tipi

 Emotional Regulation With TiPiEmotional Regulation with TiPi

Emotional regulation with TiPi allows you to take control of your emotions.

The world is full of ups and downs. Some of these moments leave us breathless with joy, and others leave us emotionally scarred. If you've gone through a bad break up, the death of a loved one, or any number of traumatic incidents, it can take months or years to recover from it. For some people, there is no getting over it, and these incidents can haunt their lives with flashbacks and nightmares on any given day.

TiPi is a method of emotional regulation developed in France by Luc Nicon. He discovered that when a certain protocol was followed, previously crippling fears could be dealt with permanently in as little as 30 minutes. This is due to a natural ability the human body possesses to regulate emotions, one that is frequently blocked by environmental pressures.

By focusing on the physical process of going through the emotion, the problem can be dealt with quickly and efficiently. During his research phase, 93% of the 300 people he tested TiPi on reported their issue (be it a mental block, a fear, or another emotional problem) completely resolved after just one session. (1)

How Emotional Regulation with TiPi works

Our emotions aren't separate from our bodies. When we experience an emotion, there is always a physical counterpart. When something makes you feel sick to your stomach, gives you butterflies, makes your heart beat faster, or makes our hands and feet sweat, these are the physical responses of the emotions we are feeling. (1)

Our body remembers these feelings. When we experience an event that triggers it, these feelings come flooding back unless they have been properly dealt with. If you frequently feel your emotions being triggered by a specific event, this is a sign that the emotions haven't been dealt with. It doesn't have to be something you'd consider traumatic to be this way. It can be something as simple as a car cutting us off in traffic, or knowing a certain relative is going to be at an event you have to go to.

With the TiPi method, once you have identified the root cause of what is triggering your negative experiences, the solution is relatively simple. You let the physical reactions come, and you pay attention to them without making any attempt to control them, you let them evolve on their own.

This gives your mind and your body a chance to connect the reactions with the event, and to properly identify them in your memory. The next time the trigger appears, you won't feel the same reaction.

The results are surprisingly thorough for such a simple process, and a professional TiPi instructor can walk you through the steps to permanent resolution in as little as 30 minutes. This science-backed technique has helped thousands of people and continues to help more every day. If you have emotional difficulties, Emotional Regulation with TiPi may well be the perfect solution for you.

What’s in your water?

Posted In:
Diet/Nutrition

safe water to drink

What’s in your water?

Recently, in the North Texas area where I live, a question was raised about the quality of the water from our local municipality.  It stemmed from a rash of people complaining of skin dryness, itchiness, rashes, eye irritations, unsafe levels of chlorine, headaches after showering, hair loss and other general health concerns. 

As it turns out, there are water treatments that may be done at certain times of year to treat the water.  And the chemicals used to treat the water from other unsafe organisms may actually bring with it some new health concerns.  These chemicals called trihalomethanes are known to lead to a higher risk of cancers and reproductive problems in humans. There are regulations in place that are designed to help you prevent high levels of trihalomethanes to reduce the risk of cancer and reproductive problems.  

What are trihalomethanes? They are chemical compounds and when exposed via short-term inhalation, humans and animals have shown central nervous system effects, irregular heartbeats, liver and kidney issues, redness or burning of the skin. Long-term exposure to amounts above the federal limits and observed through animal testing led to adverse effects to the central nervous system, liver, kidney, and heart.   These have also led to the decreased size of animal reproductive organs and a heightened risk of cancer after years of exposure.

So these are the concerns about our drinking and bathing water and it is a good thing that it has been brought to the forefront since long-term exposure is costly to your health.  What can you do about it? There are many options that can be considered to address drinking water in particular. As a last resort, is bottled water. You might think that would be a good option, but here is the concern.  Bottled water can leach the plastic out of the container that it is placed in which also lead to cancer causing agents. Now, generally, this might happen when the bottle is exposed to heat for great periods of time. So, you might think that since you bought your case of water from the store and kept it in the house since you brought it home you are okay.  But what you do not know is what happened to the water in transit? Was it sitting in the hot storage room of a grocery store for extended hours or worse, in the back of an 18 wheeler during transit while it sat in parking lots?

Another option is filtered water.  There are many options on the market as far as purchasing a filter for your home drinking water and whole house systems.  There are reverse osmosis systems, water pitcher filters, filters that offer alkaline water, filters that offer hydrogen water etc.  

Many people do not understand that water is so vital for life and all life functions.  It helps with elimination in the gut. It helps clean toxins out of the cells. It allows the nervous system to properly send signaling to the nerves and allows nerve endings to connect and transmit information throughout the body. It allows the brain to function in a major way. And many don’t realize that just because something they drink is liquid, does not mean it is hydrating to your cells.   For instance, iced tea. Yes, of course, it is made with water, but if you spilled grape juice on your carpet, would you clean it with iced tea? Of course not!

Your body is around 78% water and your brain is nearly 87% water.  Water is vital and the quality of it matters. Water is not just ingested into your cells by drinking it, but it is also absorbed through the skin which is the largest organ in the body.  This is why filtering even your bathing water is important.

My experience over the years is that water that is “energized”, like the water in the Rocky Mountains running over the rocks, is one of the best analogies I have for good water.  When you have the right water in the picture, you will feel how well your body operates, including cognition and digestion. I even find that I crave water that is good such as hydrogen water which is energized water.

I like hydrogen water because it assists the body with inflammation, works on cognitive function especially to stimulate ghrelin which is the hormone that tells the brain it is hungry and is also very effective in addressing joint issues.  But the most important piece is that there are more than 700 research studies showing therapeutic effects on the body from hydrogen water.

There are many that believe alkaline water is best for you.  Alkaline water has a pH higher than 7 and acid water is lower than 7.  Alkaline water has its place however, your body does an amazing job of managing multiple points in the digestive tract where pH varies based on location and function of that organ.  You see, you need more acid in your stomach to help digest food properly, whereas the next stage of the digestive process does not require such an acid level. Alkaline water is very good for a multitude of health benefits such as increased energy, immune system boosting, cognitive function and detoxification.  Alkaline water should have a constant flow of dissolved hydrogen in it and that can be hard to find in a good filtration system.

What about acid water?  Generally, this is best for watering plants washing your face and rinsing your mouth of bacteria such as gargling when you have a sore throat.  It is also known for benefits related to cleaning bacteria off of surfaces and kills fungus. This water is generally not beneficial for drinking.

Echo® 9 Ultra Hydrogen Water MachineThere is a company that I refer to that has a system that produces a great value to provide what you need whether alkaline, hydrogen or acid water and including adding positive frequencies to “energize” the water all in one unit!   The filer is called Echo® 9 Ultra Hydrogen Water Machine and it removes over 99% of pesticides, fluoride, chlorine, chloramines, bacteria, viruses and algae. It also removes 99% of soluble metals such as mercury, lead, nickel, copper, chromium and arsenic. The Echo® filter also stops scale buildup including lime.  This company offers a Forever Warranty and free installation! Oh yes, and the price is far less than a leading competitor. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Learn all you need to by watching these short videos.  Be sure to download the free Ebook on the benefits of Echo Hydrogen Enriched water.

The toxins that can enter your body through your skin via bathing and showering are just as dangerous to your health.  Your skin can easily absorb any chemical on contact so the same is true for your water in your shower or bath.  Here is a full home solution to assist in removing those toxins.

I encourage you to be very aware of your drinking water and the toxins that may be in it. If you are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, you are welcome to contact us for a large free bottle of drinking water to sample from the Echo System referenced above.

Fourth of July Safety Tips for Dogs and Cats

Cats Dogs and Fireworks

Fourth of July Safety Tips for Dogs and CatsCats Dogs and Fireworks

Fireworks can be fun for humans, but cats and dogs don't have the same reaction.

I love this time of year and the opportunity to celebrate Independence Day in our great country.  There will be amazing days at the beach, parades, picnics and fireworks! It is the latter that can make or break your pet's well-being.

Pets are not stable in their environment when they hear unfamiliar sounds, especially the sounds of fireworks, this can send them into a frenzy of fear. There are a few things you can engage to assist your pet. I will share just a few that I use in my home to create a calming and balanced environment.

  1. Keep your dog or cat inside during the fireworks in a nice, calm, cool environment, preferably with human companionship.

  2. Provide a safe place inside for your dog or cat to retreat. When scared of sounds they can’t orient, they often prefer small enclosed areas... For dogs, covering their crate or lowering the blinds in the area they are crated can also be helpful. For cats, allowing them to retreat to dark places is a good idea such as under a bed or in a closet with the lights off.

  3. In your home keep the windows and curtains closed and remove visual stimulation to calm them.

  4. Sound Therapy: Before the holiday celebration begins, get this digital download of 22:22 minutes of calming, soothing, healing music for dogs & cats and begin playing it in the afternoon. We have used Wholetones music to create a calming, soothing environment for our cats and it works great.

    This 22:22 minutes of wonderful music is tuned to a frequency (396Hz) that is scientifically proven to calm your dog or cat. It works for humans, too!

    Take advantage of this offer and enjoy the celebrations with you and your fur baby. You will have access to a digital download so you can play the music for them now,  PLUS you will receive the actual CD in the mail.

Click here to go to Wholetones Single 396Hz – Healing Music For Dogs (and Cats too). The CD jacket says it’s for Dogs but that’s because the guy who created the music is a dog person. Believe you me, It works for cats too.

One more thing, after the celebrations, check your yard for fireworks debris before allowing pets outside to play or relax. Even if you didn’t set off fireworks yourself, debris can make its way into your yard, where curious animals may pick it up to play with or eat.

Have a happy & safe 4th of July,
Lynn

Hormones Happy?

Hormones

Hormones Happy?

How many of you hear the word hormone and immediately think of women having Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) or suffering from hot flashes due to menopause?  That is where most of our minds will go, but hormones, of course, incorporate male hormones as well, such as testosterone and many others. The reality is, hormones not only impact functional aspects between males and females, but rather govern hundreds if not thousands of functions throughout the body such as body temperature, weight, hunger or sending energy to your muscles when you need it.  Let’s look at the definition of the word.

Definition of a hormone. 1 : a product of living cells that circulates in body fluids (such as blood) or sap and produces a specific often stimulatory effect on the activity of cells usually remote from its point of origin; also: a synthetic substance that acts like a hormone. 2: sex hormone.

As you can see, the sex hormones are secondary to the role the rest of them play, but our society has made it about women and mood swings so that is what we will focus on in this article as well.  Search my site for hormones to learn about other aspects. Because of this expanded definition, I prefer to call them communicators. We all have them and in order to feel optimal health whether it be a balanced thyroid, healthy eating habits or pain-free menstrual cycles these communicators are responsible.

Many women experience a lack of proper balancing of hormones throughout their lifetime.  It may look like menstrual cramps, pain, bloating, headaches, fibroids, polycystic ovaries, night sweats and a whole host of other symptoms.  

So, how do they get out of balance?  

There are a number of factors to look at and one or two you may find surprising.  

  • Food Supply: There are a number of hormones in many of the foods we eat today.  They are given to cattle and poultry, just to name a few, to allow for a faster-growing cycle.  In theory, that may sound like a good idea to feed the population and make sure we have enough food for all.  But think about it, would you have wanted your own body to grow at a faster pace than nature intended it? There are huge implications to this, but the most important for this topic is that YOU also get a shot of hormones each time you eat foods enhanced with growth hormones.  Hmmm. Now, how might that disrupt your body’s normal balance?
  • Extreme Diets:  Women athletes find this when they follow very strict eating plans and perhaps limit the proper ratios of proteins, carbs and especially good fats.  The good fats are so important for healthy hormone production and preparing the body for a developing fetus. This would also be the case for someone that suffers from disorders like anorexia.
  • Toxins:  Chemicals you ingest, inhale or have absorbed topically can block or lock down communicator receptor sites that disable the communicator’s ability to signal properly to an organ, endocrine or body part.
  • Hormone replacement or birth control pills: These hormones are given for a specific purpose, however, taken for long periods of time they can basically stop the body’s normal production of hormones once the therapy is stopped. The body may have a difficult time resetting due to factors above or stress.  I recently spoke with a compounding pharmacist regarding the hormone pellets under the skin. She cautioned that she has seen a number of incision sites bleed and found that if the wrong balance is given to the woman at the time of insertion, she is left with that balance of hormones for three months!
  • Stress: all hormones work in unison to create balance.  Did you know there are a number of stress hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline, CRH, and ACTH?  These all work in conjunction to help your body get out of a jam and do it as quickly as possible.   This “Fight or Flight” response was designed to help you run from serious danger like a threatening tiger in which case the outcome might be death by tiger eating.  Too many people stay in this stress mode too often for things like a work deadline. The stress response process was designed for life-threatening events. Unless you have a very mean boss or client, a missed deadline does not mean you will DIE!  
  • Epigenetics: Environmental factors such as many of the above; toxin exposure, pharmaceutical therapies, stress and even active memories not only yours but those of your ancestors can impact your hormone balance. It is not uncommon for an ancestor to have been the one exposed to a toxin, called an endocrine disruptor, and have receptor sites blocked and then this information gets passed down through the generations on the deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA.  Ever feel like you are not yourself during that time of the month?  Well, maybe it’s not you after all, but rather a hormone trait from an ancestor! Now that explains a few things, doesn’t it?

The good news is there are things you can do to address these concerns.

  1. Always do the very best you can to buy organic foods and avoid foods made with added hormones such as poultry, eggs, beef.  Most stores today will carry products that indicate they are grown without these hormones. By the way, this means milk also!
  2. Avoid extreme diets. The building blocks of all cells are proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.  You need all of them (in proper balance). Eat well-balanced meals including proper ratios of proteins carbohydrates and GOOD fats for your blood type and metabolic profile.  For more information on this and to receive guidance on the right meal plan for you, contact us.
  3. Avoid chemicals that you may have in your home for cleaning.  Chemical fumes can get in your lungs by inhaling them even indirectly and chemicals can also uptake into your bloodstream by walking in bare feet on floors cleaned with toxic floor cleaners. This means your children and pets also! There are many toxin and chemical free products on the market now.  Check these out.
  4. Detox your body systems with one of any of these amazing detox programs; 28 Day Detox Balance, 10 Day Female Vitality Program, 10 Day Inflammation Program or 10 Day Blood Sugar Program.  Learn more about the toxins you are exposed to in these videos.  Use this Toxicity Questionnaire to determine how many toxins you personally have been exposed to in your everyday world.
  5. Be careful with bio-identical and other forms of hormone therapy (i.e. Birth control pills, hormone pellets etc.)  BodyTalk sessions can you help you identify the reason your hormones are not communicating properly.  It is usually an emotional stressor or active memory or a chemical you were exposed to such as a food you ate at age 10. You may not have any idea where or how the imbalance occurred or where to start.  The good news is, BodyTalk sessions can zero in on the issue easily and assist your body in correcting the imbalance quickly by releasing the toxic emotion or chemical. And even if the toxin was inherited through DNA, an epigenetic BodyTalk session can assist you in making progress quickly, often without the use of hormone replacement therapy.  All sessions can be performed in person or by using video teleconferencing such as Zoom. Book your session today.

So take charge of your hormone health!

Happy days are here again and happy hormones are the key!
