How long does it take to heal?

How long does it take to heal?

I know people ask that question all the time and the thing is it's not really the question we should be asking because that in truth is a question with too many variables to answer accurately.

The reality is, what we desire to heal is the accumulation in most cases of 20,30, 40, or 50 years of buildup in our bodies build upon a biological, physical level, but also on a mental, emotional level. It's, all the programming we've accumulated in addition to no one ever teaches us how to actually feed ourselves, no one ever actually teaching us what makes our biology happy, no one ever teaches us how to be one.

So the bigger question to ask is what does healing really mean to you?
I suppose it comes down to, do you want to know what it feels like to be you at the most brilliant, amazing, best you can possibly be in any circumstance or do you just want to look better in a mirror and feel okay?

For right now I think we as humans have unfortunately...

What is Stress anyway?

Uncategorized Jul 04, 2019

One of the biggest modern-day challenges is that we have become so deeply separated from what's actually happening inside of our bodies.

We have been lulled into a false sense of knowing and we've set parameters that make no sense and the biggest place where we become disconnected is with regards to the impact of stress on our physiology.

There's a couple of things that people believe that simply aren't true and number one is they think if they can rest, if they can take some time off work, that it will stop the stress response.

Number two is that if they do energy work or acupuncture or get chiropractic adjustments, it will be enough to stop the stress response and that simply is not true either. (Mind you, I am an acupuncturist).
The next thing that they believe is if they just get more movement, it will stop the effect of stress in their cells and that's not true and actually makes it worse.

People often believe if they can just cut out the sugar reign in their diet, it...

What is metabolism anyway

Uncategorized Jun 30, 2019

A strong metabolism is not actually what you think it is. Unfortunately, most people hear the word metabolism and think it is about how effectively I'm burning calories, but that really isn't what metabolism is.

Metabolism is the function of your cells.

Can your cells use what you're giving them and actually make energy and make heat and send messages? Can they move minerals and nutrients around? Can they send messages? Can they repair damage? Can they detoxify?

The reality is, your weight has nothing to do with your metabolism because weight is an entirely other factor.

Why we gain weight doesn't necessarily equate to whether we have functional cells are dysfunctional cells.

This is a conversation I have with women all the time because I have women that I work with who do carry extra weight and women that I work with who don't carry extra weight.

One of them asked me the other day, well if I have such slow functioning cells then why aren't I huge?

It was such a great...

Watch out for these trends

Uncategorized Jun 23, 2019

Ultimately, most people fail when they do programs and processes to heal fatigue, burnout, and exhaustion because the current model for this problem doesn't understand the cellular reality.

Let's explore some common methods:

One of the most popular is fasting. It's become very popular to cite studies showing that fasting rejuvenates the body.  Many will say it recovers cell energy, but here's the problem with that.

Eliminating or limiting food in an exhausted body will cause your cells to drop into an even lower energy state as they try to survive.  Cortisol is the main hormone used to do this, from a cortisol state, our cells become less responsive to insulin, our metabolism of essential nutrients slows down and we begin to age.  From this place, your body isn't dedicating any energy to repair because it lacks the capacity to do so.

Now in some limited cases, fasting can be a beautiful tool and there are two situations where it works very well.

Number one...

Metabolic Power IS NOT Exercise driven

Uncategorized Jun 20, 2019

Do you rely on exercise to keep your metabolism going?

Exercise is a fantastic tool for strength and for connecting with our body, for getting outside and clearing our minds.

But if we're reliant on exercise in order for our metabolism to work, we're setting ourselves up for failure.

I talk to women all the time who say, if I could just run again, I would lose these 15 pounds. If I could just get back to my high-intensity workouts, everything would be fine. But because of injury or illness or no time in their life, they've lost connection to those workouts, as a result, their body starts to show them signs.

Now they took these signs to mean their metabolism tanked after they stopped exercising, but what if there's another reality?

Our beliefs establish huge patterns in our body and our body has an innate template for perfection in action, but over time and through life, we develop beliefs that external forces are the reason we will like or not like what we like in the...

If I had a time machine

Uncategorized Jun 09, 2019

If 15 years ago me could be given what I know now, the things that I could have avoided experiencing would be so profound.

I had signs of Lupus, and Hashimoto's, incredible fatigue, which limited my cognitive ability and my ability to grow. So, even if I could function remarkably well day to day, I wasn't growing!  I had low libido, had been to the ER numerous times with terrible migraines, PMS, cramping, extremely heavy cycles, was cranky, angry, and snappish at my kids, lacked empathy for my husband, couldn't set boundaries and really ask for what I needed and was basing my success as a woman on how many things I could muscle my way through in a day while feeling victimized by the process.

These were all things that I was “living” with in my 30's. The list is awful when actually written out, but externally, I was calm, put together, I worked, cooked, and contributed to the world.

It was all cloaked under a veneer of doing because it didn't feel like it was...

Do you trust your body?

Uncategorized Jun 02, 2019

One of the things that has to happen in sustainable healing, is the healing has to do more than change symptoms.

We have to get into a state of absolute relationship with our body to the point where we can honestly truly say, “I 100% trust my body, I no longer feel like I need to control it.”

To get here, we must arrive at a place where we no longer control food, we no longer force our body to behave with exercise, we no longer swallow supplements out of panic, fear or propaganda.

We have to be to look at us in the mirror, and say: “I can honestly say, I love you so much and I trust you empirically.”

The thing is, we have this beautiful divine template, we were all born with a set of instructions encoded deep within our cells which speaks forward the absolute perfect presentation of who we are.

It is only us that gets in the way of that.

Along the way in response to insults, injuries, emotional traumas, and physical traumas, we develop a...

Are you ready to lose weight?

Uncategorized May 30, 2019

People always want to know...how fast can I get this weight off?

But the real question is….

Are you healthy enough to lose fat?  Have you strengthened your awareness and body systems to the point where the release of all that stored energy and emotion is something your body knows it is safe to do?

Is the body consistently warm, including hands, feet and nose?  Waking temps around 97.8 F. degrees and midday around 98.6 F. (37 C) plus?  Is food making you warmer NOT cooler?

Are you sleeping through the night?

Good energy all day?

Consistent bowel movements?  1-3 a day.

Do you have a desire for sex?

Can you think clearly throughout the day?

Lack of PMS symptoms and a regular menstrual cycle?

Lack of severe menopausal symptoms?

Ability to regulate blood sugar throughout the day?

Can you handle stress well?  Are you happy? A low-stress threshold and unhappiness are unsupportive to healthy fat loss.

Are you able to workout without a drop in temp and pulse?

Case Study: Shaun

Case Study: Shaun

Shaun came to us with fatigue and anxiety, she had to talk herself into her day most days, and while she was amazing at presenting to the world as having it all together, much of that was because she learned to hide her internal conversations quite well.

Shaun worked with us in our 20-week program and experienced: 

     *Release of anxiety: no more convincing herself to get out of bed!
Great improvements in energy AND she learned how to advocate even more for the things which feed her!
     *Sleep: amazing
     *Digestion: great
     *Food: Shaun had always just ate what she grabbed, with us, she learned to love being present with her food and really expanding into fueling herself.
     *Weight: she released extra pounds without even thinking about it.
     *Joy: She finds she is loving life, joyful, playing at what she wants to and has structured her life around what she is...

Are You Sabotaging your life?

Uncategorized May 23, 2019

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 into dietary plans, be they autoimmune or super restrictive for weight loss. We dive into 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 patterns to allow it to be so.
Rarely do we take...
