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...

The Destructive Force Of Fear: How To Eliminate It

Uncategorized Nov 01, 2014

Fear is one of the most destructive forces on the planet.  Its impact overshadows significant attempts at peace and equanimity, driving our life force down, virtually eliminating our capacity for creative thought and keeps healing and transformation at arm's length.  One would think that in a "civilized" society cause for fear would be minimal as we don't have to run from a lion or bear, but fear is in fact posing what may be the most significant challenge our human life has ever faced.

Sources of fear within our modern world appear to be nearly limitless:

  • Ebola
  • Isis
  • Political elections
  • Border issues
  • Financial security
  • Climate change 

Unlike running from a bear or lion, which causes momentary fear followed by release and relaxation.  These "issues" are spoken of in such a way that the heightened state of arousal never ends.  This is extremely detrimental to our physical body as fear, anxiety, and terror set off a biological chain of events in which our...

Are We Ever Done Healing?

Uncategorized Oct 17, 2014

Are we ever done healing?
Is there a point where the process is considered complete?  
The short answer: not if we are doing it right! I have never thought of healing as a one-time event. Of course, there are big things, like particular pains, or identifiable conditions, which once eliminated can be considered healed, but true healing encompasses our entire being, therefore, to a great extent, healing is never over, healing in fact, is an ongoing journey, partnered with our life path, changing and morphing with the elements of our personal journey. The key is, to learn to live within the healing rather than apart from it.

I think one of the disservices of medicine is the compartmentalization of our heath into boxes, identifying disease, pain, and illness as problems with defined borders, and set parameters. Within this philosophy, we have come to think of our health as something separate from our life.  Consequently, if we feel moderately good, we soldier on, under the...

Healing: Putting The Word Into Action

Uncategorized Oct 09, 2014

Healing is a verb, yet if we really examine how medicine and society treats the process of healing, it is regarded more as a noun.  Static, defined, categorized, and linear.  Set apart from our lives, healing is relegated to an activity directed and coaxed by physicians.  If not regarded as a noun, it is given status as a state of doing; as something with defined tasks, labels, and problems to be solved.  Both manners of perception leave us in a state where in fact healing can be difficult to manifest.

As a noun, the process has no flow, creativity, or nuance.  It is dominated by facts, figures, tests, and results, and limited by these same processes.  In this way, little room is given for untapped possibilities and new emergence.

As a verb of doing, it ends up like so many things in western culture, an activity of defined parameter, invoking high-stress emotions, difficult to meet expectations, with checklists, benchmarks, and normal’s.

Are Your Words Making You Sick?

Uncategorized Sep 26, 2014

Do you speak to your body in ways that will enhance your health?  I doubt many have spent much time considering this question, but everyone should!  Our words have a profound impact, not just on others but on our own organs and cells too.  Many traditions speak spiritually of using your words wisely, as they cannot ever be taken back, but often we extend our understanding of these teachings to apply only in the spiritual realm, never realizing that the same can be said for how we speak to ourselves.  A very good friend of mine, Angelique Sanchez reminded me of this recently when she spoke of the ways she hears people speak about their bodies.

 As a massage therapist, she works on bare tissue, and consequently, sometimes she gets a revealing insight as to how people feel about their bodies, and often it is not kind. Many get lost in their dislike of how they look, unintentionally saying things like “I just don’t like my thighs” or “...

Creating Reality: Capitalizing On Our Immense Power

Uncategorized Sep 25, 2014

Have you ever thought about why things happen?  Why sometimes do events not occur when you had them scheduled?  Why do some things just keep happening over and over even though you don’t enjoy them, or even welcome them?  Is it bad luck? Fate? Or is it due to something else?  Have you ever considered the possibility that the cause might in fact be you?

Some may take that to mean they are their own worst enemy. For certain, in the world of spiritual psychology, this idea has sparked billions in books sold.  In truth, you create your reality.  However, most of the time, you have no idea what you are doing.

I see this time and time again, an anxious patient, spending all of their subconscious energy on the “What if’s” and “What next’s”.  Using their voice to say “it is all going to work out” or “I am trying to cope” but the background noise so obviously is panic, anxiety, worry, fear,...

Cultivating Peace In A Weaponized World

Uncategorized Sep 11, 2014

We live in a largely weaponized world. We fight wars on drugs, and poverty, fight to end diabetes, fight to end cancer, and go to boot camp to lose weight. We approach every situation with the intent of subduing, defeating, killing, or destroying whatever we perceive to be our opponent. Even when that opponent is ourselves.  Making it virtually impossible to cultivate a sense of inner peace, of life creation because our mindset is continually focused on being at war.

There are subtle ways this presents; in our cultural obsession with body image, weight loss, and external beauty, being bombarded by a nearly unending assortment of messages indicating a sense of never good enough. Or by the way our media images keep us focused and honed to the things we fear most.

Emerging out of this philosophy of constant struggle, are common messages playing behind the scenes for far too many of us:

I am not good enough for that

I am too fat, too ugly, too undesirable to be beautiful

I am not...

Does The Ice Bucket Challenge Do Anything?

Uncategorized Aug 27, 2014

Before you take the ice bucket challenge, give some consideration to the cause! As weeks of ice bucket challenges have come and gone, I continue to be concerned with the total lack of information available as to the cause of ALS, and the rather distracting way constant videos do little to highlight the real concerns. 

ALS is a debilitating disease, ultimately affecting motor control to such an extent that breathing and swallowing become impossible. For anyone suffering with this condition, it is well known the progression is agony. Research into ALS has provided little in the way of cure or even delay and even less as to its cause.

Perhaps so little is known about ALS because the potential causes are things which modern medicine would never consider. From my perspective, the top tier possible causes depending on the case are:

  1. Chronic Lyme disease and/or its numerous co-infections
  2. Chronic toxicity from both agricultural chemicals and industrial chemicals
  3. Chronic toxicity from...
