PEMF Device Improves Microcirculation

PEMF Relieves Pain and Heals  Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) originated from NASA’s research which involved pulsed electromagnetic fields on astronauts for fatigue, depression, bone loss and other symptoms following even short trips to outer space. Scientists discovered that the cause of their symptoms was due to astronauts being without this beneficial natural field emanating from our earth. Electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) are invisible areas of energy, often referred to as radiation, that are associated with the use of electrical power and various forms of natural and man-made lighting. EMFs are typically characterized by wavelength or frequency into one of two radioactive categories: Non-ionizing: low-level radiation which is generally perceived as harmless to humansIonizing: high-level radiation which has the potential for cellular and DNA damage If your cells become distressed from disease, trauma or toxins, they lose their ability to function efficiently and to heal. Pulse PEMF restores the positive and negative charges in the cell, enabling it to perform its natural function while speeding tissue recovery. PEMF has helped people with circulation, inflammation, improved mobility, and pain relief. At our last two retreats, we’ve had practitioners that have offered the Bemer, which is a PEMF device that improves microcirculation. Many of our guests benefited from this therapy. I also received a benefit. I took advantage of the Bemer three times during our summer retreat. By the end of the week, my torn tendon and sore ankle and foot were much better. By the time I got home, I could stand on my toes. That is one of the tests my doctor had me try before my MRI. She said with a torn tendon, you can stand on your toes. That was true two months ago. But one day, not long after we returned home, I reached for something and realized I was standing on my toes with both feet. My pain is nearly gone.  I’ve graduated out of my boot and into running shoes and occasionally my sparkly Sketchers. Come to our fall retreat in Carefree and experience not only the Bemer but also our juice and raw food cleanse along with many great classes including physical and emotional/mental detox. You can rejuvenate the body, soul, and spirit. Give us a week and we’ll help you change your life.

Food for Your Thyroid

Don’t Let These Symptoms Go Unaddressed. According to the United States National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, an estimated 27 million Americans suffer from thyroid disease and 13 million people go undiagnosed.  Besides stress, the following are the most common causes of thyroid problems: Deficiencies of iodine and selenium.Food sensitivities to gluten and A1 Casein (dairy) allergyToxins—especially heavy metals and radiation exposureHormone imbalances—cortisol too high from stress, too many carbs, not enough fat in the diet Symptoms of Low Thyroid DepressionPoor memoryAbsentmindednessFeeling of deep gloom for no apparent reasonIrritability for no apparent reasonChronic fatigue and weaknessWeight gain or difficulty losing weightHair loss or coarse, dry hairDry, rough skinIntolerance to coldAbnormal menstrual cyclesDecreased sex driveInability to remember thingsConstipationMuscle aches and crampsFluid retention or puffiness Food for Your Thyroid  Avoid all gluten and dairy. These foods can cause leaky gut syndrome which can contribute to inflammation of the thyroid gland. Only consume dairy from goats or sheep. Also, the molecular structure of gliadin, the protein portion of gluten, closely resembles that of the thyroid gland. When gliadin breaches the protective barrier of the gut, and enters the bloodstream, the immune system tags it for destruction.Avoid BPA. Avoid all plastics with BPA.Increase your iodine if you are low. Take kelp tablets or liquid iodine. Watercress is one of the best vegetable sources of iodine. Studies show that watercress helps the thyroid.Increase selenium. Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium. Take 200 mg of Selenium a day. I recommend Pure Encapsulations.Take CoQ100. I recommend Thorne. Take 200 mg per day.Do a heavy metal detox. You can use a combination of Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Chlorella, and Cilantro.Ashwagandha can help reduce stress and support the adrenals and thyroid. See Vitality Renew.Avoid sugar, refined carbs and starches.Get my juice powder Garden’s Best. Its first ingredient is watercress juice powder.Get my book The Juice Lady’s Remedies for Thyroid Disorders along with the supplement Thyrocsin Juices that Help the Thyroid These veggies are good sources of iron, B vitamins (needed for hormone creation), Vitamins C and D, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, and magnesium.

Ionic Foot Detox Bath

Ionic Foot Detox Bath

Ionic Foot Detox Bath An ionic detox foot bath is a foot spa that uses water charged with positive and negative ions – electrolytes – which draw toxins in your body out through your feet through a process of exchange between the positive and negative ions in your body, and their opposite numbers in the water. It is this exchange of ions that causes the water in the ionic foot bath to change color, and the color of the water reflects the type of the toxins. Depending on what is pulled out of your feet, the footbath will reflect various colors:             • White particles that look like cheese: this can be yeast drawn from the body. Yeast occurs naturally in the human body, but, in excess, can become a health problem.             • White foam: this reflects old lymph and toxins being drawn from the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system includes the lymph nodes, and is the body’s drainage system, drawing toxins away from muscles and vital organs, and storing them until they can be released.             • Red: can reflect blood clots being dispersed within the body.             • Orange: can indicate inflammation.             • Yellowish green: this reflects toxins being drawn from the female reproductive system, the urinary tract, kidneys, or the prostate gland.             • Dark green: this reflects gallbladder issues.             • Brown: toxins being drawn from the lungs – for example, tar from cigarettes, or environmental pollutants; cellular debris.             • Black specks: indicates heavy metal being drawn from the body.             • Black: this reflects problems with the liver. Toxins that affect the liver include alcohol, as well as fat from red meat. We will have the ionic foot detox baths available at our October retreat. The room where our practitioners offered the baths and the Beemer, became the hub of activity in the afternoon free time. Do you remember the movie Steel Magnolias and Truvy’s Home-Based Beauty Parlor? It was kind of like...

Early Childhood Trauma Affects us as Adults

Heal Your Emotions to Experience Vibrant Health Through our whole person work with our Juice and Raw Foods Retreats, we have found that toxic emotions are as much a contribution to ill health as are environmental toxins. We’ve seen many people heal their body and soul by releasing emotions that have been making them sick. We are very excited to let you know our dear friend Kari Browning will be lecturing at our upcoming October Retreat in Carefree, AZ. She currently facilitates seminars on “Releasing Toxic Emotions” and has developed an online course to train others in the technique she uses. She has a passion to see people become whole spirit, soul, and body. She just emailed me to say she has a new tool she is super excited about. It helps get to the root of issues very quickly. She said she’s been amazed at the level of breakthrough she’s seeing in people. : I’ve personally experienced a session with Kari and can say she does excellent work in facilitating the release of emotions that are stuck in the soul. If you know my story of the burglar attack, forgiveness and releasing toxic emotions were a huge part of my healing. Kari’s sessions have been life-changing for many people. Following are the topics she will address in her lecture: How early childhood trauma affects us as adultsWhat to do when triggered – dealing with fight, flight, freeze survival patternsLearning how to turn off the stress responseHow we can heal our pain by releasing toxic emotionsHealing generational trauma and breaking generational patternsHow to go to a deep place of forgiveness towards yourself and othersLearning to love yourself and practice self-careRewiring your brain for joy Kari is booking sessions in the free time at the retreat.
