Body, Soul and Spirit

Do You Want to Be Healed? People often ask me what juice or remedy they should take for various conditions. Though certain juices are helpful and certain remedies can make a big difference, it is rarely just one thing that brings healing. We are a triune being and it is when we address body, soul, and spirit that we have the best opportunity to realize healing in our body, soul and spirit. 1.     When it comes to the body, diet is huge. What you put in your body makes a big difference in whether you can heal or not heal. With toxins, sugar, gluten, refined foods, additives, and pesticides, there is a lot of interference to healing. When you supply your body with superior nutrition, it can work on the areas that need healing because it will have the raw materials to do the work. 2.     Detox is part of the healing journey. When you address the toxins and congestion in your pathways of elimination, you will take a big step toward getting better. Check out 30-day detox along with the Internal Cleanse Kit and Colon Cleanse Kit. 3.     Emotional and mental detox and renewal. Candice Pert wrote about your body that believes every word you say. Your words are extremely important. Your emotions can bring healing or dis-ease to your body. 4.     Spiritual healing is also a key component. If you’ve read my story, you know that the burglar attack I experienced years ago left me with a hand my surgeon said I could never use again. The restoration of a hand nearly destroyed by being beaten with a pipe is now fully functional and restored. That was supernatural. That came about through prayer. When it comes to healing, if you want to be healed, do it all. Don’t leave any part out. That is what changed my life. It’s what will change yours. It takes work.  Yes indeed. Things worth having are rarely easy….but oh so worth it. It’s the whole person approach at our retreats that we believe brings about healing for so many people who attend. We had another spot open up. If you want to grab it, Register Now for our October 20-25 Juice & Raw Foods Retreat in Carefree, AZ.  RECIPE of the DAYHot Lemon-Ginger Cold Remedy My banker had a cold this last weekend.  This one’s for you….

Fall Detox Rejuvenation

Fall Detox Rejuvenation

Prevent Illness Throughout the Fall and Winter It’s interesting to observe how the weather is changing—cooler nights and mornings with sunny days. I love this time of year. Even here in Scottsdale, the evenings and mornings are cooler. Our pool is much cooler too. It was a bit of a shock when I jumped in today. But as the weather changes, and different plants and trees bloom, our bodies are a bit more susceptible to getting sick.  Would you like to prevent illness all through the fall and winter, as in no colds or flu? Cleanse your body. Listen to what Elle said happened for her with her last 30-day cleanse: “I did the 30-day detox in the spring. Have felt pretty incredible since. I just had a follow up with my Naturopath. She was concerned about my estrogen last time but agreed to check my blood again after doing your detox. I went from 44 to 112…so she was very pleased. She also said in the 13 years she’s worked with me I always had some inflammatory markers. This was the first time I had absolutely no inflammation! Also my Thyroglobin (Hashimoto’s) went from 125.9 to 119.6. I’m going to do another 30-day detox in October. Thanks again!!!” We had a spot open up for our October juice and raw foods cleanse retreat. Why don’t you grab that place and cleanse your body with us. We start the week with gourmet raw foods, do a 3-day juice fast, and end with raw foods. You’ll feel like a new person when it’s over. You can register here. Here are some benefits of detoxing your body: 1.     Strengthen your immune system; help “your engine” hum along all fall. Tune-up your car and it runs better. Cleanse your body, and you have more strength and energy along with resistance to illness. Seriously, our bodies like our cars function much better when we purge out the toxins and waste. A really effective cleanse goes a step beyond juice fasting with cleansing herbs and products that get the toxins out of the various organs and systems of elimination. This is the stuff the body just can’t get eliminated on its own because the pathways of elimination get overwhelmed. There are too many toxins in our world. The toxins get stored in tissues, organs like the liver, and fat cells making it hard to lose weight. 2.     Give your digestive system a vacation. When you’re not eating a lot of meat, dairy, junk food, fast food, fried food, and bread, your digestive system has an opportunity to rest.  Fewer digestive enzymes are needed. And your body can work on cleansing, repairing and restoring. 3.     A greater sense of well being.  When your cleanse is completed, you should feel lighter and more mentally alert. Just like Elle said, you should be feeling incredible. 4.     Detoxing could change your life. Often a detox opens the door to healthier living.  When you feel healthier and happier, your life can change dramatically. You start wanting to make better choices and attend more to your fitness. I recommend the 30-day detox along with the Internal Cleanse Kit and Colon Cleanse Kit.  They are now back in stock. The cleanse kit is a highly effective formula that’s designed to protect the body’s primary detoxification organs from the onslaught of toxins...

PEMF Device Improves Microcirculation

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. Today’s Recipe Asian Radish Salad Serves 2This is one of our recipes served at the retreat. 1 bunch radishes, washed and thinly sliced1 cucumber, thinly sliced1 carrot, grated2 cups shredded kale2 tbsp. chopped cilantro¼ cup coconut aminos2 teaspoons honey or coconut nectar1 teaspoon ground ginger1 teaspoon garlic powder2 tablespoons sesame oil Directions Combine coconut aminos, honey, ground ginger, garlic powder and sesame oil in a small bowl and whisk to combine for the dressing.Toss radishes, cucumber, carrot, kale mix and cilantro with the...

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.
