De-stress: “The Happy Heart Response”

Stress, which we all encounter, increases the body’s main stress hormone cortisol, while decreasing levels of DHEA, otherwise known as the anti-aging or vitality hormone. According to The American Institute of Stress, up to 80 percent of health problems can be related to stress. Did you know that an imbalance of the cortisol/DHEA ratio (high cortisol; low DHEA) are associated with the following conditions:

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Insomnia
  • Accelerated aging and impaired skin elasticity
  • Impaired memory and learning
  • Reduced bone density and muscle tone
  • Impaired immune system
  • Impaired metabolism
  • Increased fat on waist, hips, and thighs
  • Impaired liver function; increased cholesterol (there is a correlation between the two)
  • Impaired pancreas function; increased blood sugar, which can lead to diabetes

Sunlight Saunas’ BIG Anniversary Promo

Sunlight Saunas’ BIG Anniversary Promo

SAUNA DETOX & BIG SAUNA GIVEAWAY

I have a friend who had cancer. In her hours of desperation and intense prayer, she heard one word—-sweat.  Really, she thought. Turns out that was wisdom from God. So sweat she did along with many other natural interventions. She’s now cancer free.

So why is sweating so important? Plain and simple… it helps you flush out toxins, especially plastic toxins that your body just can’t seem to push out any other way. And the best way to sweat is to use a sauna.  A plethora of anecdotal evidence exists to show that infared saunas help people detoxify their bodies, increase their energy, and heal chronic diseases. But there’s also science to support their effectiveness as well. In  2009 a Canadian researcher found the following:

  • Four different studies showing infared saunas helpful in treating cardiovascular disease.
  • Five studies supporting infared sauna in treating coronary risk factors.
  • One study supporting infared sauna treating chronic pain.

Stress and Your Heart

Stress and Your Heart

De-Stress and Live From a Happy Heart

Stress can cause a lot of physical problems including heart issues. “A stressful situation sets off a chain of events. Your body releases adrenaline, a hormone that temporarily causes your breathing and heart rate to speed up and your blood pressure to rise. These reactions prepare you to deal with the situation — the “fight or flight” response. When stress is constant, your body remains in high gear off and on for days or weeks at a time. Although the link between stress and heart disease isn’t clear, chronic stress may cause some people to drink too much alcohol which can increase your blood pressure and may damage the artery walls.” (https://www.heart.org/en/healthy-living/healthy-lifestyle/stress-management/stress-and-heart-health)

The Power Of Enzymes

The Power Of Enzymes

Enzymes That Really Do Grow Hair

Systemic enzymes benefit your entire system. But specifically the enzymes I take and recommend help your body break down undigested proteins that circulate in the system. More digested protein means more availability for your hair and nails. These enzymes have actually helped me grow hair back. There was a time when my hair really thinned out. It all started when I started enjoying wine. It was too much sugar for my system. This caused my hair to fall out at an alarming rate. When I discovered the enzymes I’m recommending today, my hair started growing back. It also got thicker and stronger. And it broke less often.

Red Juices for Healing Lymphatic System, Adrenals, Kidneys and Heart

Red Juices for Healing Lymphatic System, Adrenals, Kidneys and Heart

For hope and healing Monday, I want to focus on red juices for healing.

The color red (and purple) is associated with the adrenal glands, the lymphatic system, and the kidneys. Red foods also nourish the heart. When you think of red produce (tomatoes, berries, cherries, pomegranate, beets, purple cabbage, and cranberries), the nutrient that stands out is lycopene, which is a carotenoid that is a powerful antioxidant associated with reduced cancer risk,  especially prostate cancer. It is also associated with reduced risk of heart attacks. Many red fruits and vegetables are also rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, folate, and flavonoids, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. Cranberries are a good source of tannins, which prevent bacteria from sticking to cells; hence they are important in fighting infections. They are the reason cranberry juice is a standard treatment for bladder infections.

The Full Moon Cleanse

Parasites can cause belly fat, weight gain, inflammation, and blood sugar imbalances.

Round worms can cause ridges on your nails. Digestive problems are the number one complaint associated with parasites. They can also cause you to crave sugar and fried foods—even potato chips— and other unhealthy foods.

Because parasites impact your liver, you could end up with liver disturbances that can lead to depression, mood swings, other mental problems, and weight gain. Headaches also may be caused by parasites.
 
Roundworms can cause hormone imbalances. When your liver is busy dealing with parasites, rather than clearing your hormones, imbalances can develop. If parasites hang around long enough in the body, they can cause cancer. 
 
As you can see, this is nothing to let slide.

Three Juices for Pain Relief

Ginger Juice

The Journal of Pain reported that “ginger is an effective natural anti-inflammatory that helps reduce pain and inflammation.” The researchers explored the specific role that ginger has on muscle pain. In one study, Dr. Srivastava at Odense University in Denmark “gave arthritic patients small amounts of ginger daily for three months. The majority of people had significant improvements in pain, swelling and morning stiffness by eating ginger daily.”1 Adding ginger to your juice recipes each day is an easy way to get ginger in your diet.

Hope for Tired Adrenals


One of my readers sent an article from Mayo Clinic, which said there is no such thing as adrenal fatigue. What do you think?

Having suffered from adrenal fatigue, I know firsthand what it is to experience fatigue, body aches, low blood pressure, sleep disturbances and lightheadedness especially when standing up quickly,—some of the symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue.  There are many suboptimal conditions that people experience that cannot be diagnosed with standard tests given by allopathic doctors.  A typical test that naturopathic doctors and other holistic physicians recommend is the saliva test.  It will give you a measurement of adrenal hormone production at different times of day and night.

Hope & Healing

Hope & Healing

Things aren’t always as it seems—there is hope.


What we want to achieve in our health, we must first “see” it in our mind and believe in our heart.  This creates a “seed” in our soul. We must then nurture that seed with a strong belief that we can have what we believe. The subconscious mind with Its direct access to God can grow strong. As with any seeds, it is crucial to keep these seeds well fed, watered and cared for by strong faith. This is where our beliefs and our spoken words affect what we want to see in our bodies. Once the seed is sown it will grow as we nurture it.

Even though we cannot see seeds growing in the earth, a gardener has faith that they are growing, and that they will become beautiful plants. No gardener would sow seeds in their garden and not have faith in the process.

Once the seed thought has been planted in our soul, the time will come to “reap the harvest” and enjoy its fruits because the harvest that sprang from your “seed” of beliefs, wink finally come. You believed and so you will “see” your answer—your healing.

Cherie’s Healing Update

I’ve been putting the “seeing” into practice in my own life now with the torn tendon in my right ankle. I’ve been believing and praying that what my doctor said would take 2 to 3 months of wearing a boot (and if that didn’t work, surgery) would only take a few weeks. This was week two and I have very little pain. I’ll see my doctor in two weeks. By that time I plan to have no pain at all. I’m seeing and believing that my tendon is healing quickly.

Diane’s Story of Hope

A while back I was going through quite a bit of stress.  My grandmother died, I was having difficulty in my marriage. I ended up with pain in my whole body. My doctor didn’t know what was causing it so she sent me to the city doctor.  All summer I had blood taken to try and determine what was going on. In the fall I couldn’t keep going to the city since my sister, my ride,  is a teacher had to return to work. My doctor said it was likely arthritis and I would probably be on medication for the rest of my life.  That was my last visit. I told her I don’t think so. I never went back! I went to a lady who flushes the bowels out [colonics]. She directed me to a friend where I got enzymes. I took a coral calcium sachet supplement which I believe was God directed. The pain ended. So I agree with what you say; when life throws you lemons-with God’s help, you make lemonade! Things aren’t always as it seems—there is hope.
