Self-Care Is not a luxury, it's a necessity!
All of your digestive issues stem from an unhealthy gut. Acid Reflux, Colitis, IBS can all be reversed by integrating a whole food diet, stress coping strategies, and vital plant-based supplements
I suffered from adrenal fatigue for years. I had no energy, brain fog, and was unable to cope with stress. Many people don't realize that your body is your best doctor, it gives you signals when things are not working properly. In reversing my adrenal fatigue, I have more energy than ever before, sleep peacefully at night, am focused and have balanced my hormones all naturally without medications.
Weight Loss is 25% of what you're eating and 75% who you are being when you eat. We will work on strategies on eating slower and at a more relaxed pace. When you eat in a stressed state, your digestion is closed so you can eat the healthiest foods and exercise but you will not lose weight. Your food gets deposited as fat instead of being digested as nutrients. I will teach you great techniques on how to trick your nervous system into thinking you are relaxing.
Detoxification is meant to rejuvenate the mind and body and positively impact well being and clarity. However, sometimes the initial reaction to a detoxification program can be anything but pleasant. The process of healing sometimes includes a healing crisis, also known as the detox reaction and the cleansing reaction. During a healing crisis, you can feel even worse than before you started your detox program. The good news is that this reaction is likely a sign that you're getting better by way of a deep and thorough cleansing. Understanding the healing crisis is crucial to healing. Many individuals stop the process because they think they are having an adverse effect but in reality, you are starting to heal.
Most people assume that diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, arthritis, and cancer are results of genetic inheritance factors. The Human Genome Project is proving that genes are only a very small part of the story. More important than genetic inheritance in terms of your health or disease state as an adult, is the way you have treated your genes throughout your life. What you have eaten, inhaled, surrounded yourself within your environment, endured as stresses, participated in as activities, or suffered as injury, all of these factors alter the expression of your genes and contribute in a major way to your state of health or disease.
Stress is the only thing that produces disease. Stress is defined as any input into a human being which is detrimental, whether mental/emotional, physical, sensory, or nutritional/chemical.
Stress is detrimental because when it is introduced to the body, the body must expend extra amounts of energy to keep the stress from causing injury or death. i.e., When the body is exposed to cold, it will rev up metabolism to maintain a body temperature that preserves life. This increased metabolism (shivering) costs extra energy.
I will work with you on developing strategies to reduce stress in turn giving you peace of mind and focusing on positive energy.
Women's Health - Thyroid Health
I started going through menopause at the age of 38 years old. I was healthy with the exception that my ovaries started to fail. In my research, the only thing that hit home was the fact that at that time I was a smoker. I wanted to keep my hormones balanced naturally so I decided to start Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and before this tried Chinese medicine. Initially, all of the terrible symptoms such as the night sweats, hot flashes, feeling as if my skin was crawling along with the wonderful irritability, and constantly feeling bloated started to subside. After 2 years and 30 pounds later, my once perfect wellness visits for the first time ever we're not perfect. My liver enzymes were very high. I didn't know it then but even though in a very low dosage the Hydrocort I was given to stabilize my cortisol level had steroids in it which was causing havoc on my liver and the reason for my weight gain. I had developed a mass and nodules on my thyroid which was also malfunctioning. I was a mess and changes needed to be made asap. I was set for a biopsy and to see an endocrinologist. I already knew the protocol with that which was putting me on thyroid medication, I definitely was not a fan of medications. Then a light bulb went off! I knew that in changing my diet and starting the ramp-up process of pure plant-based supplements, I could reverse what was going on. I gave myself three months to see the results. I started immediately with a diet regimen and the ramp-up process. The first month was not pleasant due to the detox phase but then the lumps in my throat disappeared. Four months later, I lost 20 pounds, my energy was back and the new sonogram and blood work showed that the nodules and mass had shrunk more than half their size. I felt great!! I want to inspire everyone to not only mask your symptoms but to heal your body. There are three biological requirements everybody needs in order to maintain optimal health or in medical terms, Homeostasis, these are friendly bacteria, live enzymes that have not been heated in the process of making and minerals/amino acids, which I get through micro-organic algae (all made with foods and plants not chemically or synthetically made). A healthy diet, these 3 biological must-haves along with exercise and outlets like meditation and Reiki to reduce life's daily stresses is how I healed my body and maintain optimal health. Heal your gut, change your life!
I am happy to declare VICTORY!!!! I went to my primary doctor for my annual wellness visit on 9/20/2019, I had new blood work and a thyroid sonogram done, I was thrilled to see that all of my levels were perfect including my thyroid was still normal from my last visit in December 2018. The sonogram confirmed that the henergous mass and nodules are gone, I am at optimal health! Thank you God.
