Here is the Proof!

Perhaps I’ve talked with you over the years about stress and emotions and how they affect your physiology.  It is one thing to understand problems with your mind, but another to help the body de-stress from the event.

A research project was completed on the NeuroEmotional Techique, which is the work I do.  The research was on people who had recovered from cancer, but felt highly stressed with the fear of it coming back.  The subjects were given a functional MRI of the brain, before treatment of NET and after short term treatment,  which showed the the patients brains were changed by the NET.

Originally, the brain showed traumatic memories and after the short term treatment, the brain basically normalized itself.  It was not longer a traumatic memory.  And that was without medication or years of therapy.

You can watch a documentary about this project.  It is called “Stressed” and is available on Amazon.   It might be free if you have amazon prime.   I’d love your feedback on the documentary.  It is wonderful to have drug-free options.

2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It is a time of new beginnings.  We don’t get a do-over, but we get to start again.  That is important to our mindset.  And in reality, each day we get to start again.

It is a time of reflection:  what worked well and what needs improvement.  There are many programs of goal setting.  It has been proven that you are more likely to reach your goals if you have defined them and written them down.

Don’t forget about your health when setting goals.  As we get older, we really do discover that without your health, other goals might never be realized.  Health is number one!

Here is to enjoying 2019 while working toward our goals!  Cheers!

May the coming year give you opportunity after opportunity to get to know yourself!

Gifting

It is the holiday season. No matter what holiday you celebrate, if gift giving is a part of it, you want to be smart about gifting.  I remember an elderly woman in my hometown. She was beloved by many.  She had a home and didn’t need “stuff.”  She said many times, “if I can’t eat it or wear it, don’t give it to me.”

As people age, they need less “stuff” and often they need more help:  help with their body.  Much of the time, people don’t know how to help so I have a few suggestions.

If someone has pain, the cbd cream I sell tests well on almost everyone.  The feedback I get from people is they like it.  It is in the form of a body butter.  It doesn’t take much to make you feel better.  It is worth a try.  It is 45.95 plus tax.  As you might know, I have tested a number of these in my practice and this is the one that tests the best.

Another gift idea is the socks!  I’ve talked about them before.  You can see them on my website or in my office.  I have them for sale or you can order them off my site.  The reason I really like them is they increase my balance. They also give more stamina, so if someone is on their feet all day, they will appreciate a pair of socks. They increase athletic performance, like your golf game. They increase range of motion too. I know, they sound magical, but they aren’t.  On the bottom of the sock is patented information that stimulates the neuroreceptors all the way to the brain.  And, did I mention, they enhance brain function too!

Thankful for You!

I am thankful for you, my patients and friends.  I consider it an honor for you to trust me with your body and health.  I love what I do.   You allow me the opportunity to do what I love to do most.  Thank you!

The big word these days is inflammation.  Everyone wants something for their inflammation.  It is wise to clear up inflammation.  However, people talk about it as if it is, “the thing.”  It isn’t.  Inflammation is a response in the body.  It is the response to an injury.  This is basic physiology.

What kind of injury? It can be any kind of injury.  I like to talk about it as physical, like spraining an ankle.  Or chemical, like eating or drinking something your body really doesn’t like.  Or it can be electromagnetic, like holding a cell phone to your head day in and day out.

So remember, inflammation is the response.  Just treating it isn’t always going to get you to where you want to go.  Go upstream to the cause.  Are you eating something your body doesn’t like?  Are you stressed out with too much screen time or an emotional issue?  Or have you sprained your ankle.

Always look to the cause of the problem, not the body’s response to the cause!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Breathing on the Run

Normally, I am in the office around the Thanksgiving holiday, but this year I will be in San Diego. Please call or text if you need to get in

This time of year pulls our energy.  We want to participate in all the festivities without overwhelming our body.  Everyone knows to stay hydrated and get as much sleep as is possible.  A way to calm your nervous system down amidst all the excitement is deep breathing.

It is easy to forget.  Breathing doesn’t take long really, but it is one of those things people intend to do but tend to get at the end of the day and realize they haven’t breathed deeply all day.

I have a little trick. Tie deep breathing to another behavior. Every time you go to the bathroom during your day just take three deep breaths.  Breathing deeply is so satisfying and nurturing it can’t help but relax you.  Take your breath deeper and deeper.

If you have a child or grandchild that gets “wound up,”  play a game of deep breathing.  It won’t last long, but it doesn’t have to in order to be effective.

Vaxxed

There is a prediction that by 2025, 1 in 2 children will be autistic.  That is a heavy, heavy statistic. And it was made by an MIT graduate.

If you want to understand what the fuss is regarding autism vs. vaccines, an easily digestible way to see who says what  is the video vaxxed.  The names of researchers, the CDC specialist, and the research is given.  When you hear and understand both sides, you can decide what you want to do.

A link is up so we can watch it for free until November 8th.  However, my computer skills fail me.  So maybe everyone needs to own a copy to share.

The video is called Vaxxed and you can buy it here.  Buy a few for Christmas presents!

And I think you can see it here for free until Nov. 8th.

Are You Covered?

Insurance is one of those things we never want to have to use.  But if you need it, you certainly want to have it.  People need to be treated for injuries they sustain in a car accident, but to do so, you must have proper coverage.  In Colorado, you can get car insurance and not cover yourself as the driver, but I wouldn’t suggest it.  You need to have MED PAY.  That means, if you get in a car accident, you can come to my office and be treated through your insurance.  It simply doesn’t make any sense to not have some coverage!

 

I first started this when Colorado went the way of no-fault insurance.  When I began, I had $5000 worth of MED PAY.  After some years I changed it to $10,000.   Decide what amount your are comfortable with, but don’t find yourself naked when you need coverage.  This is just a friendly reminder:  call your insurance and see what kind of coverage you have.  Most people don’t know what coverage they have until they need it. Get it before you need it!

Who Gets Respect?

Rodney Dangerfield always said, “I don’t get no respect.”  He could have been talking about vitamin C.  Why should it get respect?

*supports weight control

*decreases fatigue

*decreases brain fog

*decreases risk for disease

*sharper cognitive function

*lower HbA1C

This article says, “poor brain function is directly linked to low vitamin C levels.” They checked blood levels and having levels below 23 micromoles per liter (moderate deficiency) caused the odds to double for mild cognitive impairment!  This may be why so many of my patients just feel better when they take Camu.

Natural Solutions

Have you noticed how docuseries are becoming popular?  If you want to learn about how to deal with autoimmune issues, naturally, there is a docuseries explaining your options.  Recently there was a docuseries about curing and preventing Alzheimer’s. And don’t forget The Truth about Cancer, The Truth about Vaccines, Vaccines Revealed and on and on it goes. You can learn a great deal on the computer and there is no greater motivation than your own body not feeling well.

No matter which one I listen to, I have been glad I practice the way I do:  eliminating the body of bacteria, virus, parasites, fungus and heavy metals and food sensitivities.  They are the culprits in your health problems.  They might not be the whole problem, but they make a tremendous difference.  I just listened to a lady who was diagnosed with MS say 70% of her symptoms disappeared when she quit eating dairy.  In our complicated health care industry, that was such a simple solution.  There isn’t a drug that eliminates 70% of the symptoms. Solutions aren’t always complex!
