Posted by on Jul 19, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Summer Pick-Me-Up… Fatigue is the number one health complaint. Is that you? Are you tired this summer? Maybe it’s the heat and humidity that are draining your energy. Or it could be your adrenals need a boost. Then again, it might be toxins clogging up your liver—your fat burning organ and a key organ in preventing fatigue. One of our air conditioners blew out yesterday right in the middle of 107 degree weather. It looks like it may be repaired tomorrow. We can hardly wait. The good news is that the air conditioning unit for our bedroom is fine. It’s the cool place in our house. Meanwhile, I’ve been practicing some of these tips myself. Here are some summer pick-me-up energizing tips: Start your day with fresh juice. It’s energizing.Stay hydrated. Drink at least 8 glasses of water. Nothing can make you tired like getting dehydrated.Put a couple of drops of peppermint oil on a tissue and breathe in. Or put a couple drops on your wrists; it feels very cooling. (my favorite!)Get refreshing sleep. If your adrenals are exhausted, you may not sleep well.Support your adrenals with Vitality Renew. If you have adrenal exhaustion, get my book Remedies for Stress and Adrenal Fatigue with the supplement Vitality Renew. Also, increase your vitamin C. The adrenals need a lot of this vitamin.Lose a few pounds with my Sipping Skinny Program, which starts Monday. Losing a bit of weight is energizing in itself. This will give you a great summer boost.Cleanse your liver. Get the Internal Cleanse Kit with the Colon Cleanse Kit and work on all your organs of elimination. This is a great energizer. RecipeAdrenal Booster Cocktail Hot peppers and parsley are rich in vitamin C; celery is a great source of natural sodium.  Both are very beneficial for the adrenal glands. 4 carrots, scrubbed well, green tops removed, ends trimmed2 tomatoes2 stalks celery1 handful parsleyDash of hot sauceDash of celery salt.

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. Cherie sporting her temporary boot! 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...

Love Heals

Love Heals

Love and Healing Miracles My husband and I were just talking this week about how always loving the community is at our Juice & Raw Foods Retreats. Truly loving people seem attracted to come. In this atmosphere of love where people bond so quickly, we have seen amazing healing miracles take place—-heart disease healed, tumors shrunk, torn rotator cuff healed, emotional issues dating back decades suddenly released and the pain gone….even getting out of a wheelchair for good with no more arthritis pain. We know it’s a combination of juice fasting, cleansing both the body and soul, prayer, and love that brings about the miracles. As we continued talking I thought about a very popular book that’s been around a long time—Love, Medicine and Miracles by Dr. Bernie Siegel. It was written in 1986 and the message is timeless. “Unconditional love is the most powerful stimulant of the immune system. The truth is: love heals.”  In a recent blog post he writes, “Researchers [at the University of Iowa] found that when ovarian cancer patients had a strong feeling of connection with other people and had satisfying loving relationships, they had more robust “natural killer” cell activity at the site of the tumor than those who didn’t have those social ties. In other words, when we feel real love in our life, our immune system’s white blood cells are even more capable of KILLING cancerous cells.” As I searched the web for more information on love and healing miracles, I found the amazing story of Evy McDonald on singer/songwriter Greg Tamblyn’s site,(1) which he found in Bernie Siegel’s audio book Peace, Love and Healing. I’m excited to share it with you. And after the story, I really encourage you to listen to the song Greg wrote about Evy,”Unconditional Love.” It’s simply beautiful. Evy’s Story of Healing In 1980, Evy was diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrigs Disease. By the time the doctors had figured out what the problem was, the disease was quite advanced. In Evy’s words, she was “a bowl of jello in a wheelchair.” The doctor came into her hospital room and gave her the news that the best she could hope for would be about six months. Evy had a masters degree in nursing and knew this was a fatal illness. She went home and raged about her situation for a couple of days. Then Evy had a thought: even though she was dying, even though her body just barely worked anymore, and even though she only had six months left to live, was there something she could do to make the most out of her last six months? She came up with a plan. She sat in front of a mirror naked and looked at herself. She’d had polio as a child, so she had two withered limbs. In addition, she’d been overweight her whole life. And now, she was dying of a wasting disease. She sat there and experienced all the negative thoughts and feelings she was having about her body and her life. She wrote them all down in a list. It was a long list. Then Evy did three things. First, she started a new list of things she liked about herself. She began with her hair and her hands, because she’d always been proud of them....

The Power of Hope

The Power of Hope

Fear or Hope; Which will You Choose? A week ago Friday I got the results of an MRI. I have a torn tendon in my right ankle and a lovely big old boot for the summer. My Podiatrist said I’ll need to wear it for 2 to 3 months. My first thought was no…no…no. I’m going to heal much faster than that. I’m going for two to three weeks. I thought about Donna who does my newsletter designs and all the beautiful artwork for my website. (See her story below.)  She healed her fractured knee in record time. She had such a positive attitude all the way through a very difficult ordeal. She inspired me. So in the early moments of reviewing what my doctor had said, ” we’ll see if my tendon will heal in this time with the boot and if not I will need surgery,” I had to battle fear and continue to choose hope. I choose to heal; no surgery needed. I think with any diagnosis, when you hear  the worst possible scenario, the tendency is to be gripped by fear, which is paralyzing. Embracing hope is a choice. Fear is damaging; hope is healing. . . so why don’t we go there? It’s not easy. Fear tries to take over the mind. It’s a fight….and it’s one we’ve got to win if we want to heal speedily or in some cases heal at all. Hope can help your body release endorphins and healing chemicals. Fear, on the other hand, causes your body to release damaging chemicals that impair healing. William M. Buchholz, M.D., shared an enlightening perspective in his brief story titled “The Medical Uses of Hope.” He tells about overhearing two doctors  discussing an experimental protocol for metastatic lung cancer. One doctor got a a 22 percent response rate and while the other one got 74 percent. The doctor that got the 22 percent response rate wanted to know what his colleague did differently. The 22 percent doctor called his protocol EPOH while the 74 percent doctor called his HOPE. Dr. Buchholz goes on to say, “Whether genuine hope is a feeling, in our hearts, our souls, or in our brain, it encompasses positive energy that helps us persevere and have positive outcomes. It is empowering, and suggests a future optimistic outcome. Hope is often at our core, or soul, and remains unwavering as we journey forward.”1 Dr. Candice Pert is famous for her research on what you say affecting your body—”Your body believes every word you say.” Therefore, with hope, we will say positive things to our body telling it the positive outcome we want. Yesterday I was at my Integrative Medicine doctor’s office. I went for PEMF treatment to my foot and ankle. This is electromagnetic therapy that improves circulation and cell metabolism thus facilitating healing. She told me I should heal quickly because I’m such a clean eater, juice and take supplements. That is the holistic approach I’m taking to heal this painful tendon tear. But what I walked away knowing is that It starts with the spiritual aspects I choose. I see them as the most important part of the healing journey—prayer, faith, hope… and then add to that all the nutritional components along with my diligent wrapping my...

Summer DETOX

Summer DETOX

BIG DETOX KIT SALE Take 20% off ALL DETOX KITS Detoxification means cleansing your pathways of elimination. This is done by removing impurities from the blood, liver, colon, lungs, lymphatic system, kidneys/bladder and skin. When these systems are compromised or overloaded with toxins and waste, impurities aren’t properly filtered and the body is under duress. I recently listened to Joel Osteen on SiriusXM as I was driving. He told the story of a remote village in Africa where the people suddenly started getting very sick, some even died. A team of investigators were sent out from the closest major city to determine what was making the people sick. When they tested the water, they found that it was contaminated. They looked and looked for the source of the contamination but could not find it. Finally, they sent divers up the mountain to the source of the stream to see what they could find. They discovered that a mother pig and her piglets had fallen in and drowned. They were stuck right at the opening where the water flowed out. As I heard this story, I thought about our bodies. Our blood must be cleansed by the liver. If it has contaminates stored up there, our blood and our whole body will be adversely affected. Many people try all sorts of diets, foods, supplements and herbs to try to heal, gain energy or lose weight. (Toxins can keep you from losing weight.) But just like the African villagers, until the source of the contamination is removed, nothing else is going to help a great deal. Have you struggled with your health, low energy or your weight? Detoxing is a big part of changing your health and your body completely. A detox program can help the body’s natural cleansing process by: Resting the organs of elimination.Promoting elimination through the intestines, kidneys, and skin (you will find the colon cleanse, kidney/bladder cleanse, lymphatic system cleanse, lung cleanse and skin and blood cleanse in the kits.) The Internal Cleanse Kit with the Colon Cleanse Kit has all the tinctures for each of the organs and systems of the body.Cleansing the organs to drive toxins from the body (Try the 30-Day Detox with the Internal Cleanse Kit with the free Colon Cleanse Kit.)
