Brain HealthHave you ever heard we only use 10 percent of our brain power? This is a common myth believed by two-thirds of the population! This is a false assumption. While there may be moments, such as when we are at rest, that only a small portion of the brain is in use, we regularly use virtually every part of the brain and most of the brain is active almost all of the time. This is why Brain Health is very important.

The brain acts as the main command center for every function, thought, and feeling we experience. The average human brain weighs approximately 3 pounds and uses 20% of the body’s energy.

Most of the energy consumed by the brain is attributed to the rapid firing of millions of neurons communicating with each other. The rest is used for both voluntary and involuntary activities such as driving a car or controlling body temperature respectively.

Even though we know the brain is responsible for making us function, so little is known about how it works. So it's not that we only use 10 percent of our brain power rather we only understand 10 percent of how it functions.

The brain can be described in three categories: the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. Each section contains additional segments, such as, the cerebrum, the brainstem, and the cerebellum which are the primary components of the brain.

Other important segments include the thalamus, hypothalamus, and cerebral cortex.

Right or Left

The human brain is divided into the left and right hemispheres connected by a bundle of nerve fibers called the corpus callosum.

The theory behind right-brain, left-brain dominance, and different thinking styles was introduced by Nobel Prize winner Roger W. Sperry.

Each side of the brain controls the opposite side of the body, for example, the left brain controls all the muscles on the right side of the body, and vice versa.

If you consider yourself to think more logically, analytically, and objectively, you might be a left brain thinker. However, if you feel you’re more intuitive, thoughtful, and subjective, you may be a right brain thinker.

As we age cognitive function may naturally decline. However neurological disorders are becoming more and more prevalent. When it comes to brain health, prevention of disease is key.

My goal is to share with you how simple lifestyle changes can be incorporated to improve your brain health and ultimately the quality of life which is why I invite you to watch my "Brain Health" webinar.

During this experience, you will learn about the brain functions, neurological disorders, and methods of maintaining brain health.

Lifestyle categories you can change include physical health and exercise, diet and nutrition, cognitive activity, and social engagement. Join me to learn more!

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 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 Does Lynn Do? BodyTalk and More!

BodyTalk:BodyTalk Logo

Lynn facilitates the interaction between the mind, body, and spirit, specifically the ways in which emotional, mental, social and spiritual factors together can directly affect health. She looks beneath the surface of symptoms to find the more fundamental causes for the conditions.  This modality uses the latest in medical research including microbiomes and epigenetics.

She offers no diagnosis or prescription, just re-establishing communication between the brain and body so to speak. In a session, she uses neuromuscular biofeedback, which is similar to applied kinesiology. By understanding that your body has an inherent knowledge of itself, Lynn is able to quickly and easily ask your body what communication circuits have become compromised and in which order these lines of communication need to be re-established for the fastest possible healing process to occur (Priority Based Health Care). She then uses light tapping on the head and sternum to reestablish channels of communication within the body. In turn, this activates the brain and helps to facilitate the body's own ability to restore and maintain its optimum health.

 

 Naturopathic Doctor:

Lynn emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process.  Naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

Hormones Happy?

Posted In:

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!

The Clock Begins: Lung Time 3 AM - 5 AM

The Clock Begins: Lung Time 3 AM - 5 AM

In my prior article titled, Is Your Hose Kinked?” I referenced the 24-hour body clock. If you missed this article click on the link provided. You really do have an internal clock that carries out specific tasks within the body at the same time every day. Almost like your body’s “in-box” of daily routines. And, like your day at the office, your body may have an emergency or two that gets thrown in your day. Something you didn’t plan. This could look like a food you are allergic to such as wheat. Your body still needs to work on its regularly scheduled daily task but eating the wrong foods or food you have an intolerance to may cause your body to have to go deal with that “emergency” instead of completing the scheduled task. This is how blockages, build-ups and stagnation can cause an organ’s meridian pathway to be clogged. This can lead to a host of issues.

This month we will start with an exercise for the lungs. The lungs start your body’s internal clock activities each day from 3 AM to 5 AM.  The lungs have a number of key functions, but there may be some you are not familiar with such as:

  • help to circulate the blood
  • distribute fluids and blood to
  • nourish the skin, generate grief
  • help you release the past
  • give you the ability to speak with a clear voice.

Now, these may not sound like functions you have heard of before and that is because they do not come from western medicine philosophy. We are looking at them from an energy perspective.

If you are someone that wakes up at night during 3 a.m. to 5 a.m., your lungs may be telling you something. Some of the signs of lung patterns that may reflect irregularities in lung energy or stress are:

shortness of breath, sweat easily, tiredness, cough, tickle in the throat, weak voice, dry mouth, dry skin, aversion to cold, someone who worries, is anxious, overworks to keep busy or can’t lie down, asthma, someone that has excessive consumption for greasy or spicy foods.

As mentioned previously, there are a number of ways to address an imbalance in the lungs one of which is an exercise called Qi Gong, similar to exercises like Yoga or Tai Chi. Click on the link for an exercise unique to the lungs. It may take a few days or even a couple of weeks before you notice a change, but give it a try and see if you start sleeping through lung time or are at least able to fall back asleep if you do wake up briefly. Click here for the Lung Exercise.

So maybe you are thinking, “I wake up multiple times during the night, what am I supposed to do if it is not during 3 am – 5 am?” Don’t worry. We are going to do a series on this so rest assured we are going to cover the other organs in the body. However, if you are waking up multiple times a night, you will benefit tremendously from my prior video release called the Tahiti Vacation Relaxation Technique.

Another way to address energy imbalances is through BodyTalk, a modality I use in my practice. A BodyTalk session can be done in person or remotely (over the phone or live video conference such as Zoom). Learn more about BodyTalk and schedule a session.

 


The Clock Continues Series:

Is Your Hose Kinked? Introduction to series: Lung Time 3 AM to 5 AM

The Clock Continues: Large Intestine Time 5 AM – 7 AM

The Clock Continues: Stomach Time: 7 AM – 9 AM

Preparing for Surgery?

Posted In:
Blog | Mind/Body

Preparing for Surgery?

Ah yes, the end of the year, that time when you consider the surgery you put off all year waiting until things slowed down in your schedule.  Now your deductible is met on your insurance and the holidays are upon us so you better fit it in!

Some of you may think that as a natural health practitioner I am against surgery. Ironically, my Dad was a surgeon. He helped a lot of people because of what he was trained to do. I do not have anything against surgery especially after a serious trauma like a car accident where seconds and minutes count. The items below are best addressed before surgery, but there is much we can do to bring the body back to balance if you’ve already had your procedure.

Several things can play into your surgery that can leave a lasting impact for months and even years.  A few have been noted here with some thoughts on how to properly prepare.

  1. Effects of Anesthesia
  2. Impact on your gut microbiome
  3. Impact on your skin microbiome
  4. Scar tissue and adhesions
  5. Back pain
  6. Emotions out of balance

 

Here are a few things to consider in order to make your surgery as smooth as possible.  First, be sure to follow all the advice of your surgeon’s team.   They have their reasons for doing all the things that they do to make your surgery experience as positive as possible. Don't take chances, but know that there may be some after effects.  The good news is these can be addressed as long as you prepare in advance.

  • Effects of Anesthesia and CO2:  Thank God for some tools that help keep the pain levels down. The days of biting a bullet are over, however, these tools can leave a lasting effect.  Be prepared and be patient. You may feel groggy or foggy for more than just a few hours after surgery. This is normal, generally, and drinking a lot of water will help your body flush some of this from your system. I highly recommend a technique we use in our BodyTalk Access class called Body Chemistry. It is specifically designed to help the body deal with the effects of intolerances to chemicals etc. If you don't know the BodyTalk Access routine be sure to check out the next class offering. You will find yourself using it for many more opportunities than just surgery;  including possibly surgery prevention depending on the issue.  However, in the absence of the full BodyTalk Access routine knowledge, try the first technique taught in the class called Cortices.  This is safe to use before and after your procedure.  You may also find when you have abdominal type surgery, that CO2 is used to pump up your abdomen so the surgeon can have a clear view to work. These can be very painful after surgery especially when the bubbles get lodged in areas like the clavicle or collarbone. Preparing for these in advance is easy with a BodyTalk surgery prep session with a trained practitioner. In these sessions, your practitioner will prepare your body to dispel these gases in a more efficient manner. The sessions can be performed in person and long distance via video conference as well.

 

  • Impact to Gut Microbiome:  Generally after surgery, depending on the kind, you may be required to have a good bowel movement before you leave the hospital.  And if for any reason you were required to take an antibiotic pre or post-op, it's important for you to know that the antibiotic can actually impact your gut movement for well up to a year beyond the surgery.  This may mean your regular bowel activity looks different, but generally, regular bowel activity is best at 3 bowel movements a day.  It's important to consider a good probiotic and good fiber after surgery. And easing your digestive system into action is the best way to start.  Consider a smoothie for breakfast in the mornings including a good probiotic and good fiber. Both of these can be recommended by my office. It's important to note that not all probiotics are the same. And you will want to switch them up about every 2 to 3 months or they can actually have a negative impact on your microbiome. Another good way to move your microbiome to a good space is through the Body Chemistry technique in the BodyTalk Access class previously mentioned.    One of the best things to move your gut microbiome to a better space is a BodyTalk session with a trained practitioner who understands how to prep your body prior to your surgery.

 

  • Impact on your Skin Microbiome:  Ah, the Hibiclens.  It's a special soap that helps protect you from bacteria that your body could be exposed to while in surgery at the hospital. I recently came across this when I had a surgery. The good news is I had BodyTalk Access and a knowledge of how to improve the good critters that keep my skin in good working order to protect my body.   This soap is very powerful and will strip your microbiome of anything and everything. Again, all for the right reason. The best thing I recommend is to get plenty of vitamin D from the sun, consider support for your skin such as Vitamin D supplement (gel) to put on incision points, essential oils such as Frankincense and Lavender several days after and perform the Body Chemistry technique from the BodyTalk Access routine. Not to mention BodyTalk surgery prep sessions.

 

  • Scar Tissue:  Scar tissue or adhesions are what can be left behind from a surgery. It's basically where skin on the outside or muscle and other tissues on the inside form together almost as if they were glued. If these are in delicate areas they can cause restriction in movement.  In a BodyTalk surgery prep session, we actually have a technique specifically for scar tissue and adhesions. It not only helps to address the look and feel of old scars, but it can also help your body better prepare for healing of new incision points and access points from your surgery.  Sometimes there can even be emotional concerns locked up in these scars.   Consider if there was a lot of emotional energy around a surgery that perhaps you didn't want to have. Perhaps the loss of a limb or other body part like a uterus. These kinds of incidents can leave a lasting physical and emotional impression and can be prepared for through a BodyTalk session with a trained BodyTalk practitioner for surgery clearing and consider obtaining some essential oils for supporting the incision areas and emotions afterward.

 

  • Back Pain:  If you have had any kind of surgery in the abdominal area lately, you may have experienced back pain that you did not realize could be related to your surgery. There are multiple energy pathways that run through your abdominal area which I call energy meridians. Many years ago, I had a procedure done through my navel. A few months later I started to experience back pain. It was then that I realized the surgeon cut through what is called the kidney meridian. I didn't know this at the time, but I now know to look for it in my clients. An adhesion can form near the point of incision and cut off the flow of energy through an energy meridian. This can link to other ailments in the body and to other organs and most doctors would not connect this simply because it comes from a different aspect of medicine.   So in my case, I worked with a certain specialist to have a procedure done through the abdomen. And six months later I started to have low back pain which would send most people to an orthopedic or back specialist. Neither of these two professionals are generally familiar with energy pathways. As I learned about energy pathways in my studies as a BodyTalk practitioner, I was able to connect that abdominal surgery scar to my low back pain.   As indicated above, when we cleared the scar blockage the energy could flow again and my kidney meridian was no longer impacted.  This meridian will impact your back among other areas. Before your next abdominal surgery, be sure to have a BodyTalk surgery pre and post session with a trained practitioner to prepare your body to make the most of a very invasive but sometimes necessary procedure.

 

  • Emotions:  Never underestimate the power of emotions. Consider that all your body parts are a community. In fact, there is a Bible verse that talks about one body many parts. While that is referencing the Christian Community, it also is a phenomenal correlation to the body. So if you consider that you're having some sort of abdominal surgery and perhaps an organ is about to be removed like the gallbladder.   Consider the other organs around the gallbladder. The gallbladder is being removed probably because it's not working well. Maybe it’s “stinky”.  Remember, it's an organ going bad. Some of its neighboring organs may want it to move on. Kind of like if your neighbor next door piles trash heaps without having them moved on to the city dump. While some organs may want the gallbladder to move on, other organs like the liver which is it’s partner organ, will actually grieve the gallbladder leaving. It's no different than two police officers that are partners for many years. They have each other's back. They help each other out in times of need. And then one day the gallbladder is removed. Do not underestimate the need for that liver to be supported; emotionally and physically.   I'm sure I don't have to say much about a woman who has had a hysterectomy. You cannot underestimate the power of her emotions going through that process of losing that body part. A body talk session can prepare the body for removal of body parts and the addition of new parts such as transplants of any kind. Again consider the neighborhood. The old neighbors need to prepare and welcome the new body part.   One might also consider essential oils and flower essences for emotional support.

 

The things you never knew to do that can make a huge difference to your overall response to your surgery, huh?  You may not have taken the BodyTalk Access class but you have an opportunity in the immediate future.  At a minimum, you have the Cortices technique to help your brain talk to your body parts more effectively to help the healing process.  But for the most optimal outcome, I recommend a BodyTalk Session which can be performed in person or remotely via video conference as I walk you through techniques to help your body better prepare.  Contact my office to schedule your appointment to prep for surgery or to help you get back on the mend after one.

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

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.

Is Your Teen Depressed?

Is Your Teen Depressed?

More Than 10% of U.S. Teens Experience Major Depression

More than 10% of all U.S. teens is a huge number.  This is terribly unsettling, especially since many of these hundreds of thousands of kids will be treated with chemicals.  And we are never sure how many will commit suicide, or worse, commit a mass murder.  And yet, major depression uncannily resembles B Complex Deficiency Syndrome (BCDS) – a syndrome of mental problems caused by a deficiency or imbalance of B vitamins.

Symptoms of Depressions and BCDS

Here is a list of BCDS symptoms (right out of a textbook) that are similar, related to, or identical to major depression:  Weakness and fatigue, poor appetite, headache, insomnia, instability, mental confusion, exhaustion, anxiety, irritability, morbid fears, confusion, somnolence, sadness, negativity, quick temper, depression and severe depression.

Perhaps the dead giveaway that your child or grandchild may be suffering from BCDS and/or depression is if they repeatedly feel like something dreadful is about to happen.  If this is someone in your family, you must take action immediately.  You may notice that they are often alone, away from other kids.  They may often seem solemn or sad, even when their friends around them seem happy and content.  And they may constantly worry about something dreadful about to happen!  That is the sign that action needs to take place immediately.

The Human Brain Needs Adequate Nutrition

Your brain and your child’s brain cannot function without adequate nutrition.  And perhaps the most dynamic of all this nutrition is the B complex of vitamins.  If your kids are showing the kinds of symptoms listed in this article, please have them eat real food, quit the sugar and soda, and make sure you get a large bottle or two of Cataplex B from Standard Process.  This is real vitamin B, not synthetic chemicals from China masquerading as vitamin B complex.

Give your kids Cataplex B (1-2 tablets) with breakfast and dinner.  After a week or two, do not be surprised if they are more tired than ever.  This would be a good sign because this kind of fatigue results from repair mechanisms working within the brain and body, and it is proof that your program is working.  This kind of fatigue is generally short-lived and self-limiting – usually 1-2 weeks.

The Human Brain Needs Time to Heal

Most kids will begin to feel better within 30 days.  But remember that the brain heals slowly.  To recover from BCDS or depression takes time. If your kids have already advanced to the stage of severe depression, fear, insomnia, morbid fears and the like, it may take a few months for them to begin to improve, and up to 18 months for complete resolution. However, to address this advanced stage of symptoms more quickly, it might be beneficial to call my office and book a BodyTalk Session for your teen.  BodyTalk can create a large amount of change in just a few sessions.  These sessions can be done long distance via video conferencing.  

Remember to adjust the dose of Cataplex B to the severity of the problem.  Most kids do well on 2-3 Cataplex B taken twice daily.  And if your kid or grandkid is depressed and also hyperactive, add Cataplex G to the protocol.  Cataplex G is the calming half of the B complex, and in these cases, I would give Cataplex B (1-2 taken 2x daily) and Cataplex G (1-2 taken 2x daily).  And to round out the protocol, omega-3 fatty acids should be taken daily in the form of Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil (3 daily).

This protocol can really work, not only for your kids and grandkids but for you as well.  Remember, you can eat lots  of B complex-rich foods like yeast, wheat germ, liver, beet root, carrots, sweet potato, rice bran, adrenal tissue extract, lecithin, manganese lactate, inositol, riboflavin, and much more-all by the wheelbarrow full and all raw, or you can just use Cataplex B and Cataplex G.

Your Heart and B Vitamins

Please always remember that perhaps the most critical of all the cardiotonic nutrients-the nutrients your heart demands-is the B complex.  So Cataplex B (1-2 taken 3X daily) and Cataplex G (1-2 taken 3x daily) with food will go a long, long way to heal your ailing heart.  Use more G with high blood pressure, and use more B with normal to low blood pressure.

This is real nutrition, the likes of which I cannot find anywhere else.  Both Cataplex B and G were produced by Dr. Royal Lee and Standard Process way back in 1934 as an antidote to the newly universal bleaching of wheat flour.  This bleaching resulted in monumental B complex deficiencies, and these two products were designed to fill this void.  Both have been selling gangbusters without any glitzy magazine or Internet advertising for over 80 years each!  And there is only one reason they continue to sell-these products work, both for your brain and your heart.

Lift your Mood Protocol

  • Cataplex B: 3-9 daily
  • Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil: 3 daily

With Hyperactivity…add…

  • Cataplex G: 3-6 daily

For an online nutrition assessment/consult or to evaluate whether the protocol above is right for you or your loved one, contact me.  All consults can be done in person or using video conferencing.
