It is going to be spring before we know it! Yeah!
So are you ready for the spring thing...gardening, walking and other adventures? Is dealing with knee pain going to be on your agenda?
I recently met with some 'almost' seniors and was a bit taken back by how many were dealing with knee pain. Yuck.
So what cause knee pain?
Misalignment of the pelvis
Toxins or pathogens.
Adrenal issues can affect the left knee.
Gall Bladder can affect the right knee.
Energy blockages in the knees.
Lack of proper supplements.
I think this is the short list. It will be a bit different for different people.
You get to choose how you want to deal with this.
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 joint tissue.
Gelatin will also help build tissue.
Good mineral supplementation is always a good idea.
Vit C is a must. It can be a natural anti-inflammatory as well as a catalyst for healing.
Vit. E may be of help also.
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.
And remember... the body IS designed to heal. We can help it along to do the best it can. We will get older, the alternative isn't that great, but we don't have to be 'old.'
Wishing you a Happy New Year and happy knees to go with it!

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.

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.

'I HATE TO EXERCISE PROGRAM'
I applauded my own efforts today when I exercised! Second time this week!!! While doing my exercise I thought it sad more people don't know about this. Then I thought maybe I was at fault. Not good. So here is some info about my..."I hate to exercise" program.
I like to walk, but sometimes that just isn't enough or I just don't do it. So here is my other option.
IF, I DO exercise I have a criteria:
It MUST Work! I need to see results!
It MUST be easy! No fancy equipment or directions. And something I
don't have to travel for.
It MUST take as little time as possible!
Yes, it is a tough criteria. Oh well... I found something that fits it all!
We are about to embark on that tradition, no, the other one, The 'New Years' resolution. Most of us have the same goals as the last 2-3 years, I know about this.
So if you want a little early Christmas present, you might consider the T-Tapp exercise solution.
Here is some of what happens when you use it:
It is EASY
It SHOWS RESULTS
It WORKS IN 3 SESSIONS A WEEK! (best part)
It MOVES LYMPH…
LOVE THIS PROGRAM!
Moving lymph is really important. Lymph does NOT have a circulatory system. It moves from area to area via muscle action, skin brushing or use of a mini tramp.
When lymph doesn't move, you become acidic, arthritic and basically ill. Your lymph carries lots of toxins out and lots of anti bodies in. And that would be a whole other blog which I will get to….
AND let me remind you! If your lymphatic system is out whack, you will be also and it won't matter HOW much exercise you do! This affects the immune system. Logic tells me it is a great idea to remove any negative energy blockages or toxins which might be affecting this system, or others. Diet and detoxes along with the Body Code usually get people going in the right direction.
Back to THE exercise:
How did I get into this exercise program?
I visited my daughter who was into this exercise program and couldn't stop raving over it. Yeah.. yeah… yeah….I really didn't think there were programs out there I hadn't heard about. And most touted miraculous results if you beat yourself up long enough.
Hey, I am not into wearing myself out.. I need to last!
My daughter threw on a t-shirt and some capris and I noticed there was less of her to notice… hmmm…. was this program doing THAT for her?
I exercised with her, not bad… I didn't feel like I needed cardiac resuscitation when finished.
Okay….. so far so good….
And it lasted what…. 15 MINUTES?
Hmm…. this is GOOD….
Then I listened to the lecture… it made perfect sense! This gal is well educated and is her own personal experiment. I have great respect for those types of people. And she spoke of the importance of lymph movement and how to move it with exercise! LYMPH?? I had studied that, its role and importance!
Okay…. I am listening now!
Hello, Teresa Tapp and the T-Tapp method of exercise.
On the the lecture DVD you learn all you need to know about the whys and hows of this program.
So let's see:
I get results after a few days…. check
I don't need anything else to exercise with…. check (do use a DVD player)
It moves lymph…check (everyone NEEDS that!)
Most anyone can do it… it is just that simple.
Helps balance hormones.
It helps with gestational diabetes.
This exercise routine lasts 15-18 minutes…. ONLY 3 times a week…. love it! And… it is energizing!!!!
Or you can do the longer work out. Why you would want to I don't know…
So there you have my reasons for choosing this program.
I suggest if you hate exercise programs, you check this one out.
If you can tolerate a light exercise 15-18 minutes, 3 times a week, you will be impressed by the results… and you will helping your body detox simply by moving the lymph! Oh, yeah… drink lots water and drink distilled if you want to detox even more.
I must put a disclaimer here: If you are harboring negative energy, lots of toxicities and it is blocking glands or organs, you do need to get those released to gain the absolute best,above average out come for your exercise program. You already know what you should or shouldn't be eating! ;-)
Here's hoping you have a wonderful, energetic week! If not lets get some of those negative energy blockages and other stuff out of the way and be ready for the next week!
P.S. Don't forget to check out Berei!!! She is 75 years old, off many medications and looking good... my icon!

If you decide to order, just be sure to get the Fit and Fabulous WITH the lecture. You MUST listen to the lecture to find out why and how it works.

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!
