Put Down The Salad!

Uncategorized Jul 31, 2015

Too much media attention has been given to the salad. I will admit, in some cases, salads are full of wonderful fresh ingredients, and therefore offer vegetables that would otherwise not have been consumed. However, the real truth behind what a salad can offer just doesn’t match up with the hype. As a result, too many people are eating salad assuming their health is being boosted while in fact, it may in fact be reduced!

Chinese Medicine, and Ayurvedic Medicine both agree raw foods are not the ideal way to nourish your body, they are hard to digest, drain your qi, reduce your digestive abilities and often lead to fatigue, and even weight gain!  Here are some facts about raw foods from a Chinese Medicine perspective:

  1. Raw foods are generally cold in nature: this cold hinders our ideally warm body.  Imagine it this way: your stomach wants to function at 98.6 degrees, when a cold food enters, the first thing the body has to do, is warm it. Think about the energy...

Dr. Julie's Elucidation Observations

Uncategorized Jun 30, 2015

Today, June 30th, I complete my 42-week Elucidation cycle, marking just over 84 weeks since I first began my Regenetics journey.  On Thursday, July 2nd, I will begin the fourth phase, Transcension. Amidst blessing and pain, awareness, and release, the past 84 weeks have shifted what I can only call my core self, my most authentic being-ness, and allowed me to access what I have always known was there, but never had a vehicle to reach.

It is a funny thing, to have spent years studying and practicing mindfulness, cultivating peace, living awareness only to discover the world outside of the veil.  Pondering the what if's: what if the inherent fragmentation we all possess before activation is the linking factor in our global struggle to balance? What if it is the reason we fall back time and time again into patterns which do not support a life-affirming mantra for our planet? What if it is the reason we desire to be right, or control others, or even the reason we have yet to...

Top Tips For Summer Breast Health

Uncategorized Jun 07, 2015

For all the women out there, with the beginning of summer, I want to encourage you to spend this summer bra-free, antiperspirant free and with minimal sunblock.  More than likely, that statement challenges a few strongly held beliefs, but I have good reasons for all these suggestions.

Going bra-less is not just an idea from hippies of the 1960s, it lends its self to better breast health over the long term.  At the conclusion of a 15-year French study on bra wearing, the evidence suggested wearing a bra limits ligament and muscle strength in bra tissue thus contributing to sagging over time.  Furthermore, limiting movement hinders lymphatic drainage. The breast is an essential lymphatic tissue vessel, and is extremely prone to inflammation.  Women who ditch their bra have more natural movement, thus providing stimulation of lymphatic flow in the armpit and therefore allowing the body a vehicle for removing toxicity from the tissues.
 
Which leads us to our...

You Don't Need Permission To Heal

Uncategorized Mar 15, 2015

Speaking with a friend the other night, this phrase entered the conversation: "permission to heal."  At first, I considered it from the perspective of self permission, and for sure, found within so many of those I have worked with over the years, a sense of not giving our self permission to heal.  But then I considered it from the simple implications of the word permission and found myself recoiling from this word.

Surrounded by ways we are expected to ask for permission, I found myself feeling blocked at the idea of asking for permission once again.  After all, isn't this what we do at the doctors office? We enter full of trepidation and fear, we meekly tell what we are experiencing, we hope they are listening, we wait for them to make their assessment and then we accept their assignment of our self as whatever illness, diagnosis or designation they have come up with.  If we challenge these designations in most cases, we find ourselves alienated, and pushed...

Exploring Our Adversarial Relationship With Food

Uncategorized Mar 08, 2015

Every day I teach people about how to heal their bodies, a conversation which always begins with how to eat. However, as more and more people discover they are joining the myriad of individuals who find out daily they do not tolerate this or that, I am prompted to ponder how we have ended up in a constant adversarial relationship with what we eat. Over the next few weeks, I plan on delving into the major aspects of this relationship, highlighting:

  • How we have come to a place where so many find so much hard to digest
  • How a mindset of mindfulness can ease food reactions and harness better nourishment from what we eat
  • How this relationship shapes our body image, and especially for women, a growing despair over the weight/health relationship and ways to approach a new understanding of what “normal” means.

It must first be understood that the food supply is not what it used to be. I have had so many conversations with people who grew up eating burgers, fries, and ice cream...

Dr. Julie's Regenetics Experience

Uncategorized Feb 24, 2015

In August of 2013, my husband and I were invited to lecture at the People’s Institute in Delton MI.
I lectured on non-weaponized medicine “Taking the killing out of our healing” and my husband on Hugelkulture.  The event was wonderful, exposing us to fantastic people with fantastic insights into healing and preservation of the earth, and for me to a book that opened many doors. 
The book: Jermey Narby’s “The Cosmic Serpent”.  Reading Narby’s narrative, I began to ponder many things, but a notation in the book, a question Narby left for himself to further investigate “does DNA have a sound” sent me researching.  Through my search, I came to a book titled “Conscious Healing” by Sol Luckman.  In this book, Luckman delves into the reality of DNA, its existence as a sound hologram containing of course all of the information needed for our physical form but also as a source of potential health and...

Era III Medicine: Returning To Our Source

Uncategorized Feb 20, 2015

The further I move in my journey as a physician; a facilitator I find the words of Dr. Luckman and Larry Dossey ring true to a greater and greater extent. In my study of Sol Luckman's work with Regenetics, he speaks of being inspired by Larry Dossey's term Era III medicine. The term reflects a shift, an expansion really, where we regard healing as a process of totality, one of holism, completeness, and one where we work from the understanding that all aspects of life are in fact totally connected.

Dossey writes:

“The recently developing Era III goes even further by proposing that consciousness is not confined to one's individual body. Nonlocal mind -- mind that is boundless and unlimited - is the hallmark of Era III. An individual's mind may affect not just his or her body, but the body of another person at a distance, even when that distant individual is unaware of the effort. You can think of Era II as illustrating the personal effects of consciousness and Era III as...

Your Genes Can Be Healed

Uncategorized Feb 10, 2015

What if I told you, your genes could be healed? As the experiment of genetic modification through toxicity and direct food modification enters its official 10-20 year window, we are seeing an exponentially growing trend of identified genetic anomaly in the population. Popular labs like 23 and me have made it possible for anyone to uncover possible hindrances to total health by identification of specific markers for genetic alterations which can contribute to modified processing of individual nutrients and of impairment within detoxification pathways.

Hearing you have a genetic condition is scary stuff. Mostly due to the predominate understanding that our genes are static structures, unlikely to heal or be modified, a fact which is far from true. There are many genetic presentations which at this point do not appear to be modifiable: downs syndrome, Turners syndrome, and other birth-related conditions. However, those identified through 23 and me are not long-held genetic problems,...

Kick Your Multivitamin To The Curb

Uncategorized Jan 10, 2015

It may be time to kick your multivitamin to the curb. Why?? Because most multivitamins are nothing but hard to digest unnaturally grouped nutrients inexpensive packages. There, I said it, words which have been aching to escape for a long time now. The other day, as I stopped at my local health food store to pick up foods... I was amused and dismayed to overhear a conversation between a male customer and one of the staff. It seems the gentleman in question was looking for a particular multi, which was out of stock and inquiring as to the possibility of getting another in for him by the end of the week. As it was December 30th and orders could not be placed for delivery on the 1st, the answer was no. He was genuinely dismayed, explaining he was going out of town, and didn't want to travel without his multi.

Not wanting to travel without one's vitamins? There are many herbs and remedies I take with me almost wherever I go... Thieves, some Chinese formulas, remedies for pain, some acute...

Do You Believe You Can Be Healed?

Uncategorized Nov 14, 2014

Do you believe you can be healed?
Whatever causes you distress: issues with physical health, emotional issues, life challenges like money, stress, or your job; whatever it is, do you believe you can be healed? I do.
I believe within all life there exists true and profound healing for every situation, there exists a type of medicine for all things which cause us pain, there exists possibility at all times which can surpass the strength of even the most dire situation. Yet, most of us deep down don't really believe we can be healed.

Perhaps belief in healing is tempered by what medicine and society believes about our lives in general. In medicine, my observations continue to demonstrate a lack of appreciation for the seemingly infinite abilities of our human bodies to repair. Sadly, many doctors have adopted a mechanistic view of the body, seeing our systems as being fragile, prone to dysfunction, and lacking any kind of innate wisdom. In this model, the only possible routes to...
