It has been an interesting spring and now we embark on Summer.
But with the rain and coolness, I am wondering if someone forgot to tell Mother Nature where we are supposed to be with all this.
So today I'm singing the praises of Liz. Liz is my neighbor and we visit from time-time.
I managed to use a few good days we had and get outside and work in the yard. I believe in dirt therapy. Works wonders for the soul and the body.
While out working around I managed to rile up some wasps and took quite a beating from them. I had about 5 stings. I got the stings under control using a few energy releases and Dr. Christopher's Stings and Bites ointment. Love that stuff.
After a week or so of itching, I was healing well. Then I got another sting. I haven't had stings like this in years.
This time my arm became quite inflamed. It was sore and starting to itch.
I mentioned this to Liz. And boy did I get a good story from this!
Liz states her aunt and uncle ran a clinic in California. People who had small pox, chicken pox and and any pox condition in general would come to this clinic. And they were helped and healed. The aunt had a formula she was impressed to use. It works on measles, what ever the skin issue. This also includes bites and stings. This stuff stops itching, consequently there are no secondary infections because you don't introduce any other pathogens to the skin from scratching. And it will also prevent scaring, according to Liz.
The recommendation is to clean the skin area with a mild soap and water, then pat dry. NO RUBBING. You do not want to break or irritate the skin.
Then apply the mixture.
The LIZ PROTOCOL
Liz's aunt felt to use a combination of baking soda and vaseline.
In a small glass or dish mix equal parts of baking soda and vaseline. I used about 1 tsp of each. Liz says the vaseline can get hot, so you might use more baking soda. This is per individual preference. Then with the back of a spoon, so as NOT TO DISTURB the skin, you apply the mixture.
So to my sting, which was itching like crazy, I applied the mixture. I didn't take time cleanse the area as I just wanted immediate relief,
AND I GOT IT! I couldn't believe how great this stuff works.
I found out a friend had been suffering with some weird bites. I called and told her she might try this. She calls back about 30 minutes later and tells me I am a miracle worker! Well, thanks, but it really isn't me.
I had the kids over and one got a sting under the arm. Nasty! Been there and done that. So I mixed up Liz Protocol, applied it and the child went merrily on her way. We applied once more before she left. And that was that.
Hopefully, there will never be a time when we need to worry about a pox situation. If there ever is, you have another tool in your box to deal with it.
I might also suggest if there are some allergies to bugs and bites, that you try some Body Code sessions to get rid of those.
Dr. Christopher's Stings and Bites ointment is a good one also to keep around as the plantain will draw out some of the toxins with stings.
And enjoy the summer!
If you have a serious condition, please see your preferred health care provider.

And we are almost into summer...well the calendar says we should be.
Hope your weather is cooperating.
So what are some of your summer plans? Any hikes? Are the knees holding you back?
I recently met with some 'almost' seniors and was a bit taken back by how many were dealing with knee pain. Yuck.
I consider most pain optional and I personally like to opt out.
I have addressed this several times, but whenever I experience something positive, I like to share. I want everyone to be as happy and healthy as possible.
What can be some of the causes?
Misalignment of the pelvis
Misalignment of the vertebrae.
Adrenal issues can affect the left knee.
Gall Bladder can affect the right knee.
Energy blockages in the knees.
Lack of proper supplements.
Lack of exercise.
I think this is the short list, I am sure there is more.
It will be a bit different for different people.
Body Code work can help solve the puzzle as to why there is pain.
Then we can decide how to deal with it.
There are supplements we can choose from.
Glucosamine/chondroitin helps build tissue.
Gelatin will also help build tissue.
Vit C is a must. It can be a natural anti-inflammatory as well as a catalyst for healing.
And one I have come across lately is the Omega 3. Not only is it good for bones, but is also good for tissue and joints.
So I started taking an Omega 3 fish oil from the North Atlantic. I finally did a breakdown on my own nutritional needs and thought this would help in some of the stuff I was trying to address, such as eyes, hair etc.
After the first month, that little annoying knee irritation seemed to be not so annoying. The knees weren't really sore, just tender at times.
After month number two, I very seldom noticed the knees. Okay. Stairs? Hmm.... not much problem.
After month number three, I forgot about the knees.
I have worked for sometime in cartilage rebuilding with gelatin, glucosamine and chondroitin, Vit C and minerals, just general good supplements. And I was taking an EFA, Essential Fatty Acid, complex with flax seed, borage and some fish oil. Apparently, not enough fish oil for what I was needing.
When we look at oils, traditionally we use Flax for women and Fish for men. These have the precursors in the oils for hormone production. I would suggest testing to see which your body is in need of. Obviously, it is not a 'one size fits all' situation.
OMEGA 3 FISH OIL.
What can it help? Ready for the novel?
This is absolutely necessary when pregnant for the developing child's
ADHD? You can get bubble gum flavored fish oil for children...and it
is shockingly good!
Alzheimers or dementia issues? Yep... this and maybe some Vit E.
Autism? This requires some definite helps. An evaluation between Cod
Liver oil or Omega 3 should be considered.
Blood factors, lowering triglycerides.
Also will thin the blood, do not take if you are on blood thinners. This will
be between you and your Dr.
Insulin factors, helps with diabetics
Joint and bone health, actually can boost the calcium levels in the bones.
Liver, helps with that fatty liver disease.
Skin, lots of nice moisture!
And that is a partial list.
When rebuilding, do not expect to have over-night results. We are so used to having everything quickly we become impatient. So guys, men, you are notorious for this! You cannot take this for three days and give up because you didn't see any improvement. Go for three weeks and we can talk.
How much? Again, more is not always better.
Two capsules day, is a good start. If your working with the brain, try doing one of these capsules at night as this is when the body does repairs. You will be giving building materials at the right time.
For children, we can work with 1/2 tsp.
And after healing has occurred, we can go to maintenance doses of supplements. And remember, the body IS DESIGNED to heal!
If in doubt, don't!
Yes, you can be allergic to something here. That can be addressed if you feel this is the case. We can check.
If you're not sure about this or any supplement, get some good advice.
And check with your healthcare provider if you are on some prescription medications.
Okay! See you on the trail!

I got all gung-ho and decided I needed a body cleanse. I wanted a real one this time. I had used the EasyCleanse, but I decided this was going to be a fasting/juice cleanse. So I opted for the 3 DAY JUICE CLEANSE. We can thank Dr. Christopher for this. Dr. Christopher felt this was a great cellular cleanse also as it went so deep. And it is quick. And the last few things I have read suggest that the body can manufacture it's own stem cells when fasting is involved. Fascinating!
For 3 days you drink organic apple juice. That's all. No foods, just juice. And it isn't that hard. I don't do complicated or too hard.
If you choose to drink water, make sure it is distilled. But don't substitute it for the juice.
You will be drinking about 3 gallons of juice, one a day.
Start out with 2 oz. olive oil and 2 oz. lemon juice, organic as possible, in the morning. Then top it off with 8 oz. of apple juice. One half hour later, another 8 oz of apple juice, 1/2 hour later another shot of apple juice. At night you add 2 oz of olive oil with 2 oz of lemon juice. Then go to bed and lay on your right side for the first half hour. This helps the gall bladder. Continue this regimen for the next 2 days and nights.
This gives the gall bladder a chance to rest and rejuvenate. If you are having some gall bladder issues we add a couple of herbs to this regimen.
I found it hard to remember to drink 8 oz of juice every 1/2 hour. So I would drink LOTS of juice at the top of every waking hour.
Oh, I have heard it all!
Don't you get HUNGRY?!
No. You're drinking apple juice all day long. But you will start to think about all the foods you are going to eat when you get done. By the third day you feel ready to eat, just hang on. If you are ravenous, just have a few slices of organic apple in the evening.
Do you get diarrhea?
No. There isn't any fiber. The other problem could arise. So if you get constipated, just add an extra dose of the olive oil/lemon juice.
Don't you get tired of just juice?
Yes and no. It is easy. But for variety I get a cider and a different apple juice so there is a taste difference. Fresh pressed is really good, but for sure get organic.
Do you get sick?
No. But on day 2 you will have a bit of a headache because there is a lot of toxins releasing. This is a positive sign! Just keep going forward and drink.
How do you get the olive oil/lemon juice down? Doesn't that make you sick?
Easy..just mix and swallow and chase it with...you guessed it..more apple juice. This is such a treat for the gall bladder. You WILL pass stones if you have any. Look for little greenish-rounded shapes, like chunks of little peas, in the toilet.
Do you feel different when it is over?
Somewhat. You will not want all those foods you thought sounded so good. You are going to be a bit more protective of what goes into the body you just cleansed. And those strange little cravings may have disappeared. The food you do eat is going to taste so wonderful. Flavors of foods will be intense and satisfying, at least they do for me.
Should everybody do this?
Yes. We take a bath or shower regularly. This is a cleansing program for the inside of the body. Take out the garbage. The organs and glands need those toxins pulled out so they can work more efficiently. It is important to get the body to the best place possible to avoid illnesses. Clearing out toxins removes the cause of much illness.
Alright. You can do this. It isn't hard.
Have a healthy happy week!
Please check with your healthcare provider if you have health concerns before you start this cleanse.

Just as a reminder, these are MY opinions formed from MY experiences, but I find these very telling.
This is going to be a different post relative to health. I just connected a few dots after a conversation with a family member and clients.
So this week I have dealt with a few cases trapped emotions which were trapped by the individual during their early development, even in utero.
I have seen a negative emotion affecting bone marrow which was causing extreme tiredness. I have seen a negative emotion affecting an asthma situation, which when cleared the asthma was no longer a problem, among a few few other things .
These energies were trapped by these individuals while IN utero, usually 3rd trimester.
One hundred years ago, women were considered in a 'delicate condition' when they were pregnant. There was extra care given to these women. Men always stood for a pregnant woman and allowed her to sit. No undo stress was placed on a woman. A woman was not even to 'look upon the face of death', it would be detrimental to the child. This time was called the 'days of confinement.' Not a bad idea when you think about it. A pregnant woman is hard to be around at times. Having done this several times myself, there were times I just didn't like anyone….including my self. So isolating the pregnant woman from society wasn't a half bad idea at times. She was protected from some of the drama and illnesses of the day. The woman was bringing a new life into this world and that pretty much was considered a miracle and pretty much respected.
Did they go to an extreme with the treatment of the expectant mother?
After what I am seeing now, I would say NO!
The situations I described are varied in their history. I will give you the most recents:
The one with overall body pain, was conceived in a hostile marriage. The father was an unpredictable alcoholic, life was very unstable. And later that marriage ended.
The asthma client came from a pretty good marriage. Which leads me to think this trapped energy resulted from a negative experience the mother had.
Another client had an asthma condition, this was the result of a trapped energy inherited from the mother. Somewhere in this mother's past, someone had trapped this emotion and passed it on. Once cleared, so did the asthma.
Pregnant women are more emotional to begin with. The we add more stress and guess who might be the beneficiary of that stress?
It seems I am seeing it in many cases.
This is NOT saying everyone who has issues had a negative developing environment. My point would be to try to eliminate these negative factors for the pregnant woman in hopes the offspring will be healthier and happier.
God has been very good to us, I feel it is time to be good to ourselves and our future generations. I am very thankful we have a method to improve our well being.
Have a great week! Go kiss a baby and love again.

ANTI-AGING, we're talking about the skin this time!
I am all for it...naturally of course.
I have several daughters. I spent some time with them this last week and we started talking about skin, wrinkles, premature aging and the rest. The fact is, we ARE going to age, thankfully so as the alternative isn't all that great. The goal here would be to do it in the least painful way possible.
For my age, and I am eternally 59 at this point, I have pretty good skin. So because my daughters are interested in MORE anti-aging info, I thought to share some of what is out there, at least what I have available right now. There is always more to know, this by no means is everything! No one knows everything!
These are just things which have come across my radar in the past few years.
I occasionally have used very expensive products, but I find you don't need the most expensive products for good results. And there is also the nutritional factors here. What supplements does one use for warding off extra aging? Like I said, this is what is on my screen right now. It is NOT everything, I am sure.
Here we go!
I once read that one symptom of B 6 Vitamin deficiency was wrinkling around the mouth. Enough said! It isn't going to hurt to take a good brand of B-50 or B-100 complex. These are usually very balanced and you won't be getting too much of one or the other. B Vitamins are water soluble, so don't be afraid of getting too much, your kidneys will take out what you don't need. Beef, poultry, fish, garlic and greens are good sources of B 6 also.
This converts to Vit A in the body. This is very much anti-wrinkling. Because it is water soluble, you can take it with very little fear of overdosing. Your kidneys will eliminate the excess. I take 50,000 u a day of this, you can use up to 75,000 a day before you start overdosing. (And this is also VERY good for your eyes!)
Vitamin C is great for many things. It also generates rapid cell repair. This is good for the skin. You may want to add 1000 mg a day of this to your diet also.
And guess what else builds collagen? Yep... old fashioned gelatin. It is marvelous for the joints, the eyes, the hair, the nails AND even the SKIN! So how much do I use?
Well, I use those packets from the grocery store and use one of those a day. I just blend it into my smoothie. It doesn't taste. After a few months, you may find you can maintain with 3-4 packets a week. I have one daughter who gets her gelatin in bulk from health food source on line. In that case she takes 1 tablespoon a day. (And this is marvelous if you have some joint pain!)
These also are some of the building blocks of collagen. And collagen keeps the skin elastic and full. You may take a couple of these a day. You may end up not needing as much later just to maintain. (Also very good for your joints!)
These are Essential Fatty Acids. Flaxseed is very good for women, it is a precursor to estrogen. Fish oil for men, flax for women.
Depending again on your diet, 1000 u a day is a good start.
Yep, we want those balanced. Some breakouts can be attributed to estrogen imbalance.
My mother-in-law, RIP, had great looking skin. Her secret she said was to, "Moisturize, moisturize, MOISTURIZE!" I use a product called Dermae. It has Vit A in it among other natural ingredients.
If there is a shortage of minerals in the diet, this can also affect the skin. It is HIGHLY SUGGESTED you get a good mineral supplement.
It is the number one element to enhance the skin. I had an esthetician(skin specialist) tell me she could tell who drinks enough water and who didn't by how wrinkled their skin was. I immediately started drinking more water! You need to be drinking about half your weight in ounces. You weigh 150 lbs, you drink 75 ounces of water a day. And this needs to be GOOD water. For sure it should be filtered in some way. And you need to be careful of bottled water, sometimes they have fluoride added and you don't want that. We can go into that more in another blog.
Then one of the products I really like is ASEA GEL. It really nourishes the cell structure of the skin. I use it at night.
Here is one 'interesting' idea:
Yep. It is purported to shrink tissue. So somebody somewhere decided to try it for the wrinkles on the face and had some great results with it. But there is one thing you might note, the ointment which will work the best for this comes from Canada. They have the yeast extract and shark liver oil which are some of the key ingredients for success.
This is added to many skin formulas. It is to help collagen formulation. I think there are some valuable applications with this. It is probably worth a try.
No doubt there are some things here which some gals will not be able to take or use as they, "Break me out!" Well, I wouldn't do that either! But let me remind you, this can be treated! If you are allergic or intolerant, you can always have a session to address that.
If you have questions about dosages, we can address that also.
I did some work for a gal who had a 'pregnancy mask' on part of her face. She was now 40 and wanted to know if I could work on it for her. Frankly, I was a bit skeptical and could not guarantee results. But we did some releases and about 10 months later her son noticed her face and asked what happened. Now without makeup, the dark mask around her face was gone. Well, that was inspirational! So having some darkness on both sides of my neck, I found I had a reason for them and did some releases. Are they gone? No, it hasn't been 10 months yet...BUT! They now are getting very molted looking, breaking up I guess you would say. So now I watch and wait. Many times there are toxicities in the skin which need to be addressed, some are related to gland toxicities. Thankfully, we can address those also.
I HIGHLY suggest any supplements you take are of a good quality. Cheap isn't always the best, and also at times when you buy the most expensive you're paying for packaging. Just use caution, and get some suggestions.
Right now I am researching which oils may be of benefit to the skin. So there will more coming on that. There just always is so much more to know!
We are going to age. We can do it well. But please remember, the best thing about your face will ALWAYS be your SMILE!
"Put a smile on your kisser and someone may put a kiss on your smiler!"
As always, if you have concerns, please contact your preferred health care provider.

Oh, come on! I know there are people who want to know... "IS THIS NORMAL?"
What is normal? Lots of things! Is there anything Abnormal? Several things.
"Disease begins in the colon," according to Dr. Christopher and many others. You haul the garbage out of your house quite regularly, and it is good to get the garbage out of your system regularly also. Sometimes in my mind I just picture an out-house. Any camper has seen one of these. You had to hold your nose to use it. Well, imagine being a walking out- house. Yeah....take the garbage out.
Dr. Christopher also stated, "There will never be world peace as long as there are a bunch of constipated men sitting around a table trying to discuss it." This is probably true. I think I have met this type on a few occasions.
So what is 'REGULAR'?
I remember one story told in class by a practitioner about a woman who displayed toxin overload and constipation symptoms. Upon being questioned. She was adament that she was regular!!! So the provider asked her again, "Do you have regular bowel movements?"
"Yes, she replied I 'go' once a month!" I would love to tell you this is made up. But unfortunately it is true. Some professionals would tell you that a bowel movement once a week is also normal. Please someone, show me somewhere in the animal kingdom, the animal that defecates once a week. I grew up on a dairy farm. I for sure never saw such a creature! So why would it be normal for a human to have a bowel movement every two, three or four days? Okay...it is a misunderstanding. This IS normal or average for constipated people, but it is NOT HEALTHY. A healthy person has two to three bowel movements a day. That would be a goal.
So what does 'normal' look like?
Usually a light brown, about as long as from your wrist to your elbow, about as round as when your forefinger and thumb are placed together, and soft. As you can tell, this is very individual. You can worry about that, after you are having the bowel movements.
NOTE: Any maroon colored stools, or black tarry stools MUST be evaluated by your Dr. This is could be an indication of blood in the stools, and it is serious.
What causes this constipation?
*WATER? Usually a lack of enough water. Are you drinking enough? A good rule of thumb is one half your body weight, pounds, converted to ounces. So if you weigh 150 lb, you should be drinking about 75 ounces of water daily. We will discuss the types of water later. Also, if the body isn't picking up the water, there will be a problem. We evaluate the usage of the water using the Body Code.
*MEDICATIONS? Also medications can slow the tract down. Pain killers are notorious for this. There are others also, so we look for medication toxicities.
*EMOTIONAL ISSUES? Emotional issues are paramount also! Holding onto emotional issues? Uh huh. That may cause a 'holding on' within the body also. We can address these things with TE sessions.
*FIBER? Lack of proper fiber also causes an issue. I know there is a big push right now against grains. I have a problem with that as whole grains are where you get so many useful B vitamins and also the fiber. You just need good old fashioned fiber in the diet from whole grains, fruits and vegetables, raw and even cooked.
*SMOOTHIES? And even some of those nutritional supplements, as great as they are, can cause a problem. To compensate for the lack of fiber in your smoothies, you need to add a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil to keep things moving along.
*EXERCISE? Lack of exercise is also a big factor. One of the easiest and best is just simply a walk. That's it! But exercise in any form will help.
*ENZYMES? Or lack there of? Supplements may be needed until the condition can be corrected. And I check to make sure your enzymes are up to par!
*HORMONES? A lack of thyroid hormones can very often cause constipation. But don't bank on getting an abnormal report back on this. You may need to run your own test with your body temperature, should be about 98.6 around 3 pm.
So what can be used to get you 'GOING?'
Dr. Christopher puts out the LOWER BOWEL TONIC. This is just what it states. It is a tonic to heal the issues of the lower bowel. This can be taken over a long period of time to heal the colon and encourage proper responses. Start out with 2 capsules a day, usually at night, then increase until desired results are achieved. After success, start backing down the dosages. You may need to take 2 capsules a day for a few months to heal this tract. If you are needing to take more than 4 capsules a day, consider putting some into your morning routine.
PSYLLIUM HUSK is a good one also. Just mix a tablespoon or so of this product in some juice the night before and Waa Laa! Success the next morning. Be sure you are drinking plenty of water with this. Many people take 2 capsules of this 2-3 times a day. This keeps things moving along well.
SMOOTH MOVE. One little treat on the market now is a tea. You drink this around 7 PM, and success will be yours in the AM. And the name of this wonderful little product is, get ready for it...."Smooth Move." Yeah, I laughed also. It is a very pleasant tea with wonderful, gentle effects.
Dr. Christopher also developed a recipe for a healthy little snack which will also help children, or their parents, assure relief from constipation.
DR. CHRISTOPHER'S BOWEL AID
1 pint ground or finely chopped dried fruits, ie apples, apricots, dates, figs,peaches, prune, and or raisins.
Add one ounce powdered slippery elm bark, one ounce powdered flax seed, one ounce powdered licorice root, and enough sorghum or blackstrap molasses to make moldable. Shape into small round balls and roll them in 1:1 slippery elm bark and powdered carob.
These are plenty sweet, so there won't be a problem getting them down. They are very good for children who might be a little 'slow,' or their parents.
An easy exercise program is the TTap program. It does wonderful things including encouraging regular bowel movements.
So there you have more info than you ever thought you would want about bowel movements! And there is more....but I think we have talked enough about it for now. Just one more thing, you're not really going to lose any weight until you clear the constipation condition. It is what it is.
Fruit ball, Anyone? ;-)
Be sure to see your Dr. for any complications.

Welcome to Spring! Or allergy season?
I used to have what I would call 'MAY FEVER.'
Came during the month of May, and ended when May left. Sometimes traveling would flare it up again. Arrrgggghhh..... I found several very good treatments for this allergy. One of the best was good ol' Vitamin C. About 3000 mg a day would help with the allergy.
Some of the other chemical treatments were just that... and left me feeling groggy, or with stomach upset. I just never knew. But hey... it was only May...for a while...
So what is an allergy? Well, usually it is an auto immune response to an element the body perceives as being a threat. Some people will say, "I played for hours outside as a child and then as an adult I get THIS!!!"
Others have allergies as very young children. Some have allergies to milk, wheat, or grains, this is a big deal. You need to become the worlds best package reader! Even soy sauce has wheat in it!!!
Do we know why we have allergies? Not necessarily. I have a few pet theories of my own. I do know many, MANY times we have adrenal issues. When we work with the adrenals, some allergies go away. Once in a while, it is a thyroid issue. Just depends on who and what. Everyone is individual.
Recently I had a client approach me at a social function. He was all smiles as he said, "Hey... It worked! I can eat chocolate! But I don't like it that much." Huh? You don't like it? Oh, well....
During the course his office evaluations, he admitted to an allergy to chocolate. This allergy would send him to a migraine attack which might last a couple of days. I asked if he wanted to get over it? He said yeah, but he had just learned to eat his way all around a chocolate chip if it were in a cookie. We went ahead and did the releases and he went merrily on his way. So when he finally decided to see if the treatment worked, he ventured out hoping it wouldn't be 2 days of torture. Hence...the first chance he got, he had to tell me. I was excited to hear about this. So was he....but he did discover he wasn't all that fond of chocolate. Hmmm..... Well, he won't gain weight.
Dust allergies, weed allergies, pet allergies, flower allergies, food allergies, etc, we can do a lot for these. Do they all clear as easily? Not always. Sometimes it takes more than one treatment. We have to look for all the triggers, organ involvement, emotional involvement, etc. We don't know until we try.
And sometimes, it isn't an allergy, it is an intolerance. The body response is similar, the cause might be different and on a different level. We check for those also.
If you're not happily tip-toeing through the tulips enjoying spring, or foods, or pets, you can make a different choice!
Have a wonderful week!

After this month of mourning due to our loss of Robbin Williams, I thought we would hit this DEPRESSION topic.
If you are alive, you no doubt have had a round of this.
No energy, loss of energy
Feelings of worthlessness, self loathing, unloved
Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness
Loss of interest in daily activities/ no zest for life
Appetite or weight changes, uncontrolled eating
Sleep changes/sleeping beyond normal times, not sleeping
Anger or irritability
Everybody has an off day or two or week. If yours is lingering beyond a couple of weeks, ask an honest person what they think about your symptoms. And know there is help out there for you. You CAN get to a better place.
SOME THINGS WE CONSIDER:
Hormones after pregnancy will often generate a depression.
Stress is a big factor for depression.
Change is always uncomfortable, and it doesn't matter whether it is a good change or a negative one. Lifestyle change, marriage, divorce, death, birth
Chronic health issue causing pain, this can be very depressing
And there is more probably, we just don't know everything about everything.
Did you know you can also see a symptom for depression in the eyes? Yep, in the brain flare area in the top of the iris. We would then also look for the cause.
So holistically what are approaches for countering Depression?
Let's start with the physical stuff. And please understand... this isn't everything!
B-VITAMINS. A full range of Bs is a very good place to start. If you're in the midst of a depression, go for the B-100s. These are the BRAIN vitamins! They help balance the brain. Sometimes people are allergic or intolerant to the Bs, this needs to be evaluated and addressed. B vitamins are water soluble and do not build up in the system.
Vit D. This is the sunshine vitamin. Many seasonal disorders are helped when Vit D3 is added to the diet. A maintenance dosage is 4-5000 U a day makes a world of difference! If you are very depleted, you may need a higher dose for a week or two. I have heard the "But I am taking 400 U because that is what was recommended." Well, this is your choice. You are overdosing when you take over 10,000 U a day... and that is questionable. On a nice sunny summer afternoon, your body will make up to 50,000 U and you usually don't have much illness in the summer. Go figure. Vit. D is highly under emphasized in my always humble opinion.
EFAs, Essential Fatty Acids, are also important. These help feed the brain. Flaxseed oil is good for women and Fish oil is good for men. I really like the EFAs Dr. Wallach developed, see products page. I must mention some people are allergic or intolerant of oils, this sometimes is why they don't see results from some of their supplements. We can address this.
Adequate PROTEIN will help keep the sugar level stable in the body and brain. Nuts make a really good snack, and they are loaded with protein.
Sometimes a good MINERAL SUPPLEMENT is necessary. We can do an evaluation for this and all the other supplements in question.
Now let's address emotional issues.
If you have to go through and airport and drag all of these suitcases with you, it will be exhausting. Going through life and dragging all this with you is exhausting on a long term level... and it can become depressing.
This week I had a great experience with a client. She has suffered from depression for years. Her husband died 30 years ago, a good friend dropped her a few years later.
She had a miserable, abusive childhood.
So after two sessions addressing the reasons for depression, Client's friend calls me and says they aren't sure how to handle the 'NEW' girl! This client is happy and singing! And.. moving forward with her life now! This isn't an instant fix, it takes about a week to see the difference, but in this case it was quite fast.
A heart wall, is created by the body as a virtual shield placed around the heart to protect it. This happens when the heart has been close to breaking, the body feels the need to protect it. The only trouble is this shield is made up of the negative energies lying around in the body. This shield, heart wall, prevents the messages of the heart from easily getting out, like wise it prevents messages to the heart to easily arrive. And lets remember, the heart is the second brain, it IS important. The heart TELLS the brain what to feel. The brain does not have feelings. I love you with all my.... HEART! Follow your HEART! I left my HEART in...We never sing about our brain.
So for the Client, we released several heart walls, created at different critical times in her life.
We also released negative emotions from certain events and memories in her life.
I love watching this transformation! And hearing about it!
Should you start feeling better and you are on medication, DO NOT STOP YOUR MEDICATION WITHOUT YOUR DR.S HELP! Your medication program is between you and your Dr. and he needs to help you wean off.
After sessions, there have been people who find they can reduce their levels of medication and some find they actually can wean off of medication, with their Dr.s help.
If there was one message that needs to be broadcast, it is...
THERE IS HELP! Please don't give up!
Why not go for a miracle? There are some great blessings awaiting those who go after them.
Have a happy week!

I hope everyone is enjoying summer! I love it! Weeds and all!
So it has been one of those weeks with different people having similar issues.
The one that stands out this week is nutritional.
A client of mine has been plagued with muscle/bone ache, some cramps and general malaise. I checked her for misalignments, very few found.This client decided she would use some of the OsteoFX from the Longevity, a product I suggest on this site.
For sometime I have been suggesting to women they monitor their calcium levels. This means they make a concentrated effort to make sure they are getting enough calcium in their diet. What is enough? Between 400mg-800mg a day, but we need to test for accurate dosage levels.
I have seen enough older men using walkers that calcium levels should be monitored for this group also. Low calcium can weaken bones, one of several factors. I know conventional means don't offer this type of service usually, but it is a good idea to try to get a blood calcium level for yourself.
I also have known people who were allergic or intolerant to calcium and other minerals. This presents a problem of the body using what is there, thankfully we can address this and get to a better place with it.
In the first few days of a menstral cycle, a woman can lose up to 40% of her blood calcium. This can initiate cramps, among other things.
So my recommendation has been, "Take extra Calcium, Calcium citrate with magnesium, the week before your period." Well, this has worked...when it is remembered. But we can do even better.....OsteoFX also contains trace minerals along with the calcium. Magnesium is used along with Calcium, there needs to be a balance.
The parathyroid gland is one of the glands responsible for calcium uptake. It is a very good idea for women AND men to have this evaluated. We can release any negative energies preventing this gland from performing up to it's proper levels.
Later in the day, I got a phone call from one very excited young woman! The ache in the hips was gone! It was gone within 20 minutes of taking the OsteoFX product and has not returned. I am very happy for her. We tested for dosages and she is well on her way to a happier life, healthier pain free life.
I really have a great respect for Dr. Wallach and his products because they work. I love his Essential Fatty acids, it is a great blend.
If you have chronic ache, it would be a good idea to get an evaluation to see if this product can help you. Not every ache is associated with calcium or mineral deficiency, but many are.
Remember the 'old wives tale' of a "Tooth for every baby?" The mother's body will take minerals from the mother to produce a healthy child. Many times these minerals will come from the teeth, hence the tooth loss of mother. We have wonderful supplements today to prevent the degeneration of the mother's body.
And for sure... let's not forget the roll calcium and magnesium play in heart health! It would be a very good idea to make sure your heart is happy with the supplements you take.
Please take time to introduce yourself to good supplements. We can always and should always do an evaluation to see what you may need, check for intolerances/allergies as well as checking the well being of your glands, organs and systems.
Have a great, pain free week!

What a week! The Sugar Blues!!
Some people are just too sweet for their own good!
Seems the issue of the week has been 'Blood Sugar!'
I was averaging one person a day with a blood sugar issue! That is scary, pleased to say that has slowed down!
So what am I finding?
I am seeing people who are actually allergic to sugar. This affects the sugar balance in the body. Okay, we just don't eat sugar. Get real, please. Fruits have sugar in them, starches convert to sugar in the body.
So we look for an underlying trapped energy which may be causing this allergy. I did find some. That is then released. And then we address the sugar allergy and we work on that. As with all allergies, we check adrenal function.
The best part is when I retest and find the blood sugar balance has improved. It is always nice for those who test their sugars daily to see a better balance.
So what are some of the symptoms of this allergy? One of two things actually.
A person will crave this sugar or starch, and cannot get enough of it or can't stand the stuff. This is true in dealing with other allergies also.
After the release, a person may find themselves NOT craving sugary or starchy foods. How nice that is, you can actually leave certain things alone or just enjoy them randomly.
Will this work for everyone? I don't know; haven't tried it for everyone yet.
Is this the only factor with a blood sugar issue? NO!
There can be a weakness with the pancreas, or one of the systems in the body. Dr. Christopher' Pancreas Formula helps heal the pancreas. Many times there are energies trapped in the pancreas. It is amazing to see sugars levels controlled after releases are done. I will say, the pancreas releases are done over several sessions.It does not clear easily. We also want to know if there needs to be chromium added to the diet to facilitate the function of the pancreas. Through evaluations and releases, we usually can get to a better place.
Sugar imbalances will sometimes show up in an iridology exam as a discoloration in the stomach area of the iris, as well as pancreas signes. There is just so much to know!
And what do we use for a sugar substitute?
Well, we want something natural, that won't raise the blood sugar levels, and tastes great. And that would be STEVIA! This is plant derived and comes as a white powder. I personally really like the NOW foods brand.
A little goes a sweet long way. There are several products out now sweetened with Stevia. For those watching sugar levels, which should be all of us, this is a wonderful resource.
Have a healthy, sweet week!
