Is Your Body Asking for Help?

self-healing Feb 15, 2021

Being Tired, being inflamed, being depressed, or anxious, I have news for you, these are signs of a body asking for help.

But, not the just give me more supplements kind of help, and in many cases, not even the give me more sleep kind of help, these are signs of a body who has forgotten how to manage life.  What this means is, the larger picture of information, which guides nutrients to their targets, which directs hormones across vast expanse to the cell and which tells the nerves when to fire, the organs when to do their thing, this information aspect of you has gone awry.

Now, this happens over time, it isn’t something you did to you necessarily, this is accumulation of stress which can include working long hours, not taking breaks, not having the right nutrients, but also includes EMF frequencies, not having joy, not having replenished the blood after childbirth, not having been shown how to feel what you feel and more, it also includes never having been given the...

How Good Sex Leads To Better Longevity

lifeforce Feb 08, 2021

Do you know that feeling when your beloved caresses you - and your skin lights up, you get goose bumps, you feel that lovely warm rush and tingling throughout your body and you just want more. 

How long has it been since you felt that? 

I ask because I talk to women all the time who haven’t felt that in years...that rush of anticipation, those goosebumps, that excitement, that sense of desire - and they miss it.

Sadly, the longer it's been gone, the further away from it we are, the more distant it seems and the less we relate to it.

You probably know that feeling, where that look of desire from your partner, prompts frustration, sometimes even anger - “just get away from me”  “Oh No, not now”  “I'm busy”  “I'm tired.”

That something that used to make you giggle now makes you cringe and even sometimes makes you want to lash out because it feels more like control an obligation.

Some women come to accept...

Have You Had Your Hormones Checked?

self-healing Feb 01, 2021

Have you had your hormones checked?

I see women ask other women this all the time, and sadly, it is not the ideal question.

See, hormonal systems are extremely complex, and to have a hormone says nothing about the ability of a body to use a hormone, which is really the issue.  But, well meaning doctors have glomed onto this idea that if the levels are off and you supplement with the indicated hormone, you will create health in a woman affected by all the usual symptoms of a particular hormonal disturbance.  

Sadly, this is false.

See, there are thousands of complex reactions that have to take place for the true impact of our endogenous hormones to have an effect in the body, to add to this, the terrain has to be able to support hormonal balance and communication and the cells have to be able to respond.  The old model, which sadly is actually the current model for most docs (natural and conventional) is that there are receptors and hormones that interact with...

The ONE Step To Heal...Not What You Think

diet mindset Jan 25, 2021

We want our problems to be one thing, one little tweak, one supplement, one food change, but I would like to give you a dose of reality, in my 20 years in clinical practice, NEVER has it been one thing.

 

That one thing model negates our deep DIVINE nature as a human, as a biological miracle, it is the mantra of the medical world which has duped us into believing we need one pill for that one problem.  Transferring that one pill model into a one food, one supplement, one herb, one glandular doesn't make it better, it is quite sadly, the same.

There are no just hormonal problems, or just gut or just thyroid, or just adrenal, or just metabolism...it is all of you, every single time.

Chasing that idea of one thing…

If I eliminate gluten, I bet it will all be ok

If I take the perfect probiotic

If I meditate daily

If I really get in my 10000 steps

If I just solve my Thyroid issue, or if I could just get someone to prescribe me thyroid medication

It won’t work....

Finding the Right Doctor isn't the Answer

lifeforce mindset Jan 18, 2021

It seems like a lot of people are on the search for the “perfect” Doctor.

Sorry to say, that just isn’t the answer to your health journey.

Truth is, if you have exhaustion, hormonal issues, inflammation, autoimmune issues, weight issues, and pain - you have patterns you will need to manage and deal with the rest of your life.

So, what if you find that perfect person and they retire? Or worse yet...die?

Then What?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to learn to adopt habits which can always work? To access skills that are specific to your system and how you operate?  To know how to recognize what your body does under stress and how to change those patterns no matter what happens?

If you know this - you won’t ever have to search out that “perfect” practitioner ever again!

It is time we cultivated our own knowledge and skill and took responsibility and ownership of our personal healing.  Now, you DO need someone to show you what steps you...

Healing Myth: It's all Hormonal

lifeforce self-healing Jan 11, 2021

I know you want this exhaustion thing to just be hormones, but it's not.

Many women find they pass over 40 and start wondering what happened, they are tired, feel frumpy, inflamed, are angry way too often, they begin to lose interest in life, don’t find joy like they used to, can’t sleep and feel old.

The lie surrounding this is that it is hormones…

Now, I will say, hormones play a role here, but it isn’t a hormonal problem, they aren’t balanced because your body can’t balance them, and it can’t do that because your cells have been running on stress so long, you burned up all available resources.

Remember in your 30’s when you never stopped? Remember when you were supermom and PTA president, and worked full time and still had an immaculate house?

Yes, that phase of life, where you saw stopping as weakness, and taking a day to lie around as indulgent??

Do you remember when you took the birth control pill for years and years to deal...

It Isn't About Nutrients

diet lifeforce Jan 04, 2021

The health world has gone mad, all the focus is on nutrients, but not on impact, on the small bits but not the big picture.  We are assessing people to death, running crazy in depth blood panels, saliva test, stool tests, toxicity assessments and all manner of micro evaluations, meanwhile, people are still suffering.

We are seeing more and more “alternative” docs just collecting data, as if they will somehow find the needle in the haystack if they just put enough little pieces of data on the board, and yet, too many have had all those evaluations and still are sick.

This is the crisis.  One might expect if everyone just said yes to every pharmaceutical offered that illness and chronic illness might be common.  But, I am seeing chronic illness perpetuate in those who have been diligently taking those vitamins and swallowing the herbs, eating “clean” and “keto” and “plant based” for years...and they aren’t growing in...

Are You Asking Your Body for Too Much?

diet self-healing Dec 28, 2020

We put so much responsibility on our body.  Have you ever really thought about what it takes on?

Every insult, external and internal, every bad day, bad mood, outburst of anger, all the times you feel fear, all the sadness that there wasn't time to feel, the scary movies, the terrible news stories, that argument with your mom, the fight with your best friend, the time you looked in the mirror and said the image there was ugly, or unworthy….not to mention the days you drank a coke and had a cupcake for lunch, or the really crappy truck stop coffee, or the days you never slept or drank any water.

All those things are currently stored in your organs...seriously.

The other day, While getting an abdominal therapeutic massage, I laid there, breathing through the discomfort, imagining my organs,  saying hi to each one as the therapist opened up the restrictions, smiling into them, thanking them, and witnessing just how much pain was in these small places...small intestine,...

But I Eat So Well

diet mindset Dec 21, 2020

Do you use eating well as a way to avoid giving your body the attention it deserves?

I used to base my “health esteem” on my “Good” eating patterns, on my diligence to choosing the cleanest foods, the pastured meats, the freshest and most accessible local foods.

I know that doesn’t sound like a bad thing, but I was using my logical brain to cajole my emotions and my body experience into being right even when there were issues.

I hear this all the time….BUT I EAT SO WELL

A call from the logical brain to say...we did a good job, why won’t everything in our body just act like we did?

Funny enough, our body doesn’t function by the rules of the mind, and the logic we have built up so well into our fortified walls of internal justification just don’t work in the flow and movement of our internal systems.

In fact, logic fails to account for the way our body really works. Let's take salad, I hear about 10 times per week women...

Are You Sabotaging Your Life?

mindset self-healing Dec 16, 2020

There's a quote by Candace Pert, author of Molecules of Emotion, that says 

 

“Body and mind are one, the body is the actual outward manifestation in a physical space of the mind”

 

Really powerful words, especially when we start to contemplate how that relates to us. 

 

If I am exhausted, if I'm tired, if I'm carrying extra weight, if I have headaches, digestive problems, low libido, thyroid issues, adrenal issues, autoimmune issues, heart disease, arterial plaque, diabetes, we've been taught to contemplate those as isolated events associated with one organ, one system.

 

Which is why we rabidly dive in to dietary plans, be they autoimmune or super restrictive for weight loss. We dive in to supplements...this one has been said to lower Leptin levels, this one adjusts blood sugar, this one is a master life altering antioxidant.

 

Or we dive into visualization….visualizing ourselves healed….but we never change the...
