Living Life To The Fullest

 http://learntruehealth.com/living-life-to-the-fullest

Living life to the fullest is mostly everyone's ultimate goal. Life has so much to offer in terms of personal growth and enriching other people's lives through what we do. However, for some people like my guest, Wesley Chapman, it wasn't a smooth ride. Been through hell and back, he is living life to the fullest by telling his story of survival, resilience, and hope.

Traumatic Childhood

Wesley Chapman's childhood was full of trauma. Born to parents who were both incapable of raising him in a normal environment, Wesley Chapman was diagnosed with 'failure to thrive.'

"Failure to thrive is a human being's lack of the basics that make us up as a species a.k.a. like having love or the feeling of being nurturing," said Wesley Chapman. "The physical side of hygiene, nutrition and basic rights of humanity were likewise inadequate."

Wesley Chapman recalls that people around his parents tried to get them to change their habits. However, rather than turning better, things apparently got worse.

Abandoned And Molested

Before Wesley Chapman turned a year old, his father abandoned the family. He says his mom protected her herself by remarrying out of safety and necessity. Wesley Chapman's stepfather, however, was nowhere near the doting father that Wesley Chapman yearned.

Apparently, it was not long before Wesley Chapman's stepfather showed his true colors. He was insanely abusive to Wesley Chapman and his younger siblings. Consequently, the abuse was physical, emotional and sexual.

"I wake up in cold sweat scared of being molested while watching my siblings being molested. But as the oldest boy, I wanted to take the brunt of the abuse," said Wesley Chapman.

He adds, "Internally; I was torn. It didn't help that my younger brother was mentally disabled. Doctors also thought I was a functioning mentally-handicapped person. I was labeled a lot. Hence, I was made to take a lot of medication."

Being Orphaned

At the age of 6, Wesley Chapman had to deal with his mother who was struggling with a lot of issues. By seven years old, Wesley Chapman became an orphan when his mother also abandoned him and his siblings.

Consequently, that made Wesley Chapman very angry. At a young age, Wesley Chapman was made to feel that he was worthless. Hence, living life to the fullest seemed like an impossible dream.

"I played the victim role, and I was labeled so much. I didn't trust anyone, and I wasn't communicating well with others," recalls Wesley Chapman.

Suicide Was An Option

With so many bad things happening, Wesley Chapman felt hopeless. It seemed like he was never going to be living life to the fullest. Hence, suicide became a daily occurrence.

"If you read my journals, it's crazy how much writing I did. Before the age of 16, I had 12 documented suicide attempts," Wesley Chapman shares. "Plus, the medicines were tearing my body apart. Hence, I became so sick."

Going Cold Turkey

However, at 16 years old, Wesley Chapman got tired of these medical professionals dictating to him how to live life. So one day, Wesley Chapman decided to go cold turkey on all medication. Because of that, he went through withdrawal symptoms but survived through it.

"Looking back, my traumatic childhood was a saving grace. It was something that gave me a chance to strive for living life to the fullest." Wesley Chapman said.

Picking Up The Pieces

Life didn't become rosy overnight after Wesley Chapman decided to eradicate medication from his life. Abuse was daily at his foster homes even after he left his biological family unit. He still experienced physical, emotional and spiritual abuse until the latter part of his teenage years.

Wanting to start living life to the fullest, Wesley Chapman began to read up about health. He mainly focused on how to maintain a healthy liver and the importance of staying hydrated all the time.

Aside from paying attention to what he ate and drank, Wesley Chapman likewise paid attention to his body chemistry. Apparently, every emotion is a chemical reaction. Fast forward since that time, Wesley Chapman has been medication-free for years and rarely takes antibiotics.

"I was tired of a lot of things. So I made a deal with God to do my part by correcting things in my body," Wesley Chapman said. "It also helped that my last foster mom loves me. The support meant a lot to my evolution."

Sowing Success

Wesley Chapman eventually found success in business, marketing, and storytelling. He says one of the essential elements of his journey is understanding the human mind. Learning self-worth is likewise a significant factor in his personal growth.

"Make something happen. Being a victim gets you nowhere. Power, control and empowerment essentially comes from responsibility and ownership," said Wesley Chapman.

He adds, "Choose to have a better life and create something powerful, meaningful and worthwhile. We are not the labels we are given, but rather we are what we choose to be."

Tips On How To Wake Up That Hero Within

First of all, Wesley Chapman says that the initial step is to integrate a sense of deep-rooted honesty within yourself. It goes hand in hand with responsibility and ownership.
Consequently, if you're still pushing pieces of your life onto somebody else, you're not in the honest portal.

The next step is learning how to heal. And people heal in different ways. But regardless of how you recover, understand the 'why' and have empathy to those who affected and infected you. Primarily, you heal by yourself, and you do that by analyzing what life is for you.

"If you're living the healthiest life inside and out, you're going to attract the right people in your life. They're going to be drawn to you in that way," explains Wesley Chapman. "We are living in a world now where more people need to become warriors of strength. That's why I do what I do."

Abandoned by both parents, abused, forgotten and diagnosed to never amount to anything of value – this was the foundation of Wesley Chapman's self-worth. Despite such horrifying beginnings, Wesley grew up to found successful businesses and work with some of the most significant, most respected brands in the world.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

http://learntruehealth.com/irritable-bowel-syndrome/

Understanding Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that is very curable. Most people often experience this because of bad diet, wrong lifestyle and stress. There are conventional medicines to cure irritable bowel syndrome, but my guest, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg, is a staunch advocate of healing IBS through a natural approach.

Conventional Background

Like a lot of Naturopathic Doctors who came from a Conventional Medicine background, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg is no different. He describes himself as a science-minded student who initially planned to get a Ph.D. degree and become a researcher.

Dr. Joshua Goldenberg acquired his undergraduate degree in Biology and Genetics from the University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, he eventually found work outside Pennsylvania doing molecular work in a laboratory.

Soul-searching

However, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg wasn’t happy being cooped up in a basement laboratory most of the time. Much as he was fascinated by the science of it all, he felt an intense yearning to do something that allowed him to interact with people.

Hence, after deciding not to pursue a Ph.D. degree, he saved enough money and flew to Mexico instead. Travelling around Central America for a year, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg took advantage of this time to figure out what he wanted to do.

Ending up in Guatemala, Dr. Goldenberg met this one person who he considered his oracle. He confided in this person that he was passionate about science, but the art was missing. Because of this, that person told him that he should look into going to Bastyr University and become a Naturopath.

“I found an internet cafe and researched. It was a marriage of science and the heart,” recalls Dr. Joshua Goldenberg. “So I booked a flight home, and within months after touring several other schools, I did end up studying at Bastyr University.”

Career Shift

Dr. Joshua Goldenberg admits that the first year at Bastyr University was hard but challenging. After graduating from Bastyr University, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg eventually found work as a Naturopath Doctor at a family practice clinic.

During his tenure at the clinic, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg noticed that majority of the patients who were treated for healing their gut health had massive changes. Because the response to natural healing was very positive, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg eventually established his clinic which focused on gut health.

Probiotics Research

Dr. Joshua Goldenberg is likewise a researcher. His papers primarily focus on evidence-based practice, irritable bowel syndrome, probiotics, and research methodology.

“We statistically combine research studies and find the truth. What blew me away was the findings on Pediatric Antibiotic-Associated Diarrhea,” said Dr. Joshua Goldenberg. “Twenty percent of kids develop diarrhea. And we studied how to protect the kids’ guts through probiotics. It cuts the risk in half.”

He believes that not everyone needs to be taking probiotics since there is a risk to develop blood infection. According to Dr. Joshua Goldenberg, taking probiotics depends on the health situation of the individual.

“I saw how powerful natural medicine could be. Personally, I don’t feel we need pills to stay well,” Dr. Goldenberg said. “The goal should be getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, good diet and strengthen spiritual mindset.”

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), is a condition wherein a bacteria stays longer and multiplies in the small intestine. Typically, the stomach muscle and small intestine should be able to push the food from your stomach through the small intestine and into your colon.

When this muscle action happens, bacteria are usually swept out of the small intestine. However, when SIBO occurs, we tend to experience symptoms like gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, and cramping.

There are some health conditions associated with SIBO, one of them being Crohn’s disease. According to studies, 60 to 70% of patients have SIBO, and contrasting studies are looking into whether antibiotics or probiotics should be used as treatment.

However, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg says it can be cured naturally. One way is to avoid fermented foods. Other treatments include taking herbal tinctures or supplements and being conscious of what time you eat.

FODMAP Diet

FODMAP stands for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols. It is a collection of short-chain carbohydrates found in certain foods that contribute to the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and other gastrointestinal disorders.

A low FODMAP diet is usually recommended to those suffering from irritable bowel syndrome. What we eat really does play a big part in healing from IBS naturally.

“A low-FODMAP diet comprises specific foods healthy for you. GI doctors are beginning to use it for everything. It is most effective for SIBO and IBS,” said Dr. Joshua Goldenberg. “It is also used for many GI complaints. It is a hard diet to do, and it is best to do it with the guidance of a medical professional.”

Ongoing Research And Training

Researching more about irritable bowel syndrome and gut health is Dr. Joshua Goldenberg’s biggest passion. He believes there’s a massive amount of medical research out there. Hence, it is difficult for doctors to stay updated with the latest stuff.

Consequently, educating health care providers, coaches and doctors is the primary reason why Dr. Joshua Goldenberg put up his website. He says his site aims to serve as a vehicle for medical professionals, coaches and healthcare practitioners stay up to date on the best available research.

Furthermore, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg says that a lot of research done by outstanding scientists are total garbage. This is because there is a bias between Conventional and Natural medicine. Consequently, there is a need to help providers find studies they can trust.

“It is important to find the right studies especially for Integrated Medicine,” said Dr. Joshua Goldenberg. “There is a need to be better at evidence-based medicine than their conventional peers. That is why I created this website. It teaches them how to evaluate the research themselves.”

Dr. Journal Club

Dr. Joshua Goldenberg is a researcher, teacher, registered naturopathic doctor and founder of Dr. Journal Club, LLC. He is most passionate about the interplay of evidence and clinical practice.

Dr. Goldenberg is an active researcher with numerous publications in high impact scientific journals such as JAMA, Annals of Internal Medicine and The Cochrane Library. His research focus includes irritable bowel syndrome, probiotics, evidence-informed practice, and research methodology.

He is currently Research Investigator at the Bastyr University Research Institute and Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Technology Sydney. He has presented nationally and internationally on evidence-based medicine as well as probiotics and research methodology. His probiotics work has been highlighted by the BBC, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, Prevention Magazine, and Fox News.

Dr. Goldenberg is a passionate educator and currently is faculty for the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine’s Interprofessional Fellowship in Integrative Health and Medicine, where he teaches critical evaluation of the literature and evidence-informed practice. He is past adjunct faculty at Bastyr University, his alma mater, in which he enrolled after receiving honors and distinction in molecular biology from the University of Pennsylvania. He also guest lectures widely.

As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Joshua Goldenberg focuses on integrative approaches to irritable bowel syndrome as well as other gastrointestinal complaints working in concert with patients’ conventional gastroenterologists. He is the current president of the Gastrointestinal Association of Naturopathic Physicians.

In 2014 Dr. Joshua Goldenberg created the medical education website Dr. Journal Clubto share his passion for the interplay of evidence and clinical practice with the larger integrative medicine community.

Well, you're in for a treat today because my guest Adam Schaeuble will reveal the secret to achieving sustainable weight loss.

Previously Heavy Dude

Adam Schaeuble amusingly uses the abbreviation 'Ph.D.,' to describe himself. Ph.D. really stands for a degree awarded to people who have gained the highest level of learning. However, Adam Schaeuble uses it to refer to himself as 'Previously Heavy Dude.'

You see, Adam Schaeuble wasn't always the fit guy that he is today. A decade ago at 27 years old, he weighed a whopping 327 pounds!

He was at rock bottom during those times. However, fed up with his weight issues, he remembered that one day at the grocery wherein he resolved to change. He was determined to do something about his weight.

Incidentally, it was also around that time that a friend suggested some personal growth materials. Those reference materials focused on Laws of Attraction which gave Adam Schaeuble the foundation to his mission of achieving sustainable weight loss.

Setting Goals

Like most life planning methods, setting your goals is an essential factor. And wanting to lose weight loss is no different. Adam Schaeuble knew he had to set personal goals to achieve sustainable weight loss.

Adam Schaeuble set five years of goals and set a date---July 9. One goal was to lose 100 pounds. His other goals were getting out of debt, getting married, having kids and establish a thriving business. Adam Schaeuble was a week late from achieving his goal, but nevertheless, he was able to fulfill his weight loss target.

"I read my goals every night, and it took five years to achieve every single goal," recalls Adam Schaeuble. "I realized I had to change. And when I succeed, I wanted to lead by example."

Opening A Fitness Studio

Adam Schaeuble says that what you focus on is essential to achieving sustainable weight loss. It apparently worked for him because being able to keep the weight off motivated him to open a fitness studio to help people.

"I like to help people visualize the transformation process," said Adam Schaeuble. "People are obsessed with diet and fitness hacks. We lose sight of working hard. My stuff works because it has no tricks."

Consistency Is The Key

Adam Schaeuble says that achieving sustainable weight loss is more than the hard work and eating clean. Being focused and consistent is the secret to keeping the weight off.

Consequently, Adam Schaeuble applied this principle when he developed his Amazing Results Formula which comprises his boot camp program. According to him, his philosophy changed his whole town. Combining all the weight his clients lost, it totaled to 35,000 pounds!

Now that his program has proved it works, Adam Schaeuble's new goal is to make his hometown lose a total of a million pounds. According to Adam Schaeuble, people who have failed weight loss programs gravitate towards him. Under his watch, Adam Schaeuble initially teaches people how to apply strategic thinking to the transformation process.

"I put them through what I did, and I created a boot camp," reveals Adam Schaeuble. "I'm big on accountability, and I help develop a develop strong 'why' behind your goal."

Four Phase Cycle

Adam Schaeuble further expounds that this program has four components. These four elements are starting a new program, getting initial results, overcoming challenges and giving up.

To avoid giving up on a weight loss program, Adam Schaeuble says that developing the right mindset can help motivate you to stay on a diet. Apparently, people tend to get excited about starting a diet and then slack off when the program isn't working.

"People need to stop focusing on the first phase and dominate situations. Only then can you can make progress," explains Adam Schaeuble. "Every trip through the cycle, you decrease your willpower."

Typical Diet

Adam Schaeuble's basic plan is eating whole foods five times a day, drinking a lot of water and sweating by doing exercises. He describes his diet as more of Paleo nowadays, comprising proteins, eggs, fish, healthy fats and vegetables.

He considers breakfast as the most important meal of the day. Hence, a typical breakfast would be one scoop dry whey protein, one scoop collagen protein; one can of organic coconut cream, one teaspoon of almond butter and mixed with a little water like pudding.

"My philosophy is you want to use the right tool for the job. I experiment with all sorts of diet regimens," said Adam Schaeuble. "Pick a diet right for you and stick to it. It all comes down to consistency and hard work. Then adapt as we go."

Adam Schaeuble likewise does fasting for 24 hours at least once a week. Apparently, Adam Schaeuble's strategy is to fast only during the day when he is the busiest. This way, he wouldn't be tempted to break the fast.

The Third Component Book

Adam Schaeuble's book is all about the real secret to achieving sustainable weight loss. This fantastic reference material will teach you how to apply his "Amazing Results Formula" as part of your transformation process.

He also believes in what he calls a 'Lifestyle Rehabilitation.' This is all about educating you on the importance of accountability and the ability to plan.

Transformation Website

Going through Adam Schaeuble's website, you'll see a lot of testimonials from Adam Schaeuble's former clients who have lost weight. These are the same people who are in Adam Schaeuble's fitness videos wherein you'll learn the proper exercises for your daily routine.

Other services that Adam Schaeuble offers on his website aside from coaching calls are nutrition protocols, strategic thinking, and lifestyle audit. You will also learn to create a battleplan workbook and be part of his weight loss community.

Support System

Adam Schaeuble continually stresses the need for you to find a good support system to help you achieve your goals. He likewise advises people to do away with being obsessed about the number on their weighing scale.

"People live and die by that scale. The scale is one of my enemies," Adam Schaeuble said. "It's one of the least reliable assessment tools. The scale makes intelligent people say dumb things."

Essentially, Adam Schaeuble says we must never give in to social pressure. More often than not, social pressure is a significant factor on why most people fail to achieve their weight goals.

"Tell your family the reason behind your goal. It's not weird wanting to be healthy, " assures Adam Schaeuble. "Find someone who has done what you want to do and learn from them. Attach yourself to them as an accountability anchor point."

Adam Schaeuble is a former Ph.D. (Pretty Heavy Dude). He once weighed 327 pounds, and after losing 100 pounds himself, he opened up a gym in his hometown of Bloomington, IN. Adam Schaeuble took what he learned from his 100-pound weight loss experience and applied it to his hometown clients. In a five year period, his hometown clients lost over 35,000 lbs.!

One Million Pound Mission

Now Adam Schaeuble is on his One Million Pound Mission. He is taking all of his successful programs and strategies that he has used for his transformation and his hometown clients, and he's putting them online with the hopes of producing a one million pound impact across the globe.

Adam Schaeuble has a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science from Indiana University and has the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification from the NSCA. At his company, TransformationCoach.Me, he holds the positions of Head Coach and Lead Transformologist.

He is also the host of The TransformationCoach.Me podcast where he dives into his best transformation tips and strategies, and he interviews people that have had amazing transformation results to extract their best tips and motivation for the audience.

Taking Supplements And Eating Right

http://learntruehealth.com/taking-supplements-eating-right/

My life had a tremendous positive shift when I started taking supplements in my early 30s. My health had been such a roller coaster before that. And now that I'm pretty much healed, I'm so excited to share a lot of information with you! My colleague Jennifer Saltzman is still with us for this episode because we have so much to share about taking supplements and eating right. 

The Politics Behind Supplements  

Taking supplements is not just about popping pills and praying you'd get healthy. There are a lot of supplements available in the market. But before taking supplements, you must first make sure they are safe.  

You also need to determine if you need to take that particular supplement. Experts like Jennifer Saltzman can provide you a wealth of advice before zeroing in on what supplements are right for you.  Check out our supplements link at the end of this article.  

"I think there is no quality control. That's why we have to consider proven results. However, no quality control is a good thing."

And what do I mean by that? Well, you certainly don't want the FDA to control the supplements because the FDA and big pharmaceutical companies allegedly have a conspiracy going on.

"There's a revolving door of FDA executives being hired by big pharmaceutical companies and vice versa.  Ultimately, they're all in each other's pockets."

At some level, they want to protect humans.  However, there is also enough room to manipulate us so that they could take away or control supplements.   

Benefits Of Taking Supplements  

If you eat all the right foods, you don't have to take supplements. Taking supplements become necessary because we don't eat right all the time and all the right foods are not available all the time. Supplements fill those nutritional gaps in our diet.  

Although it is not clear that taking supplements can reverse any chronic disease, it does make the body stronger. I have been on supplements for years and I have noticed that sometimes, I am not negatively affected anymore by certain foods that have otherwise made me sick in the past.    

"My body has been built so strong, now that I'm not depleted in vitamins and minerals. Consequently, my body it handles food so much more gently now compared to ten years ago when I would be a hot mess."  

12 Bad Foods  

If you have been a regular listener of my podcast, you know how much I adore Dr. Joel Wallach. He is one of my heroes and my cookbook was largely inspired by his philosophy of what it means to eat right.  

My cookbook, which is available for free on the Learn True Health website, lists down the 12 foods and food components everyone should avoid to prevent disease and live a quality life. The 12 foods are: 

  1. Barley 
  2. Wheat 
  3. Rye 
  4. Oats 
  5. Corn 
  6. Soy 
  7. Nitrates/ Nitrites 
  8. Fried foods 
  9. Oil in a bottle 
  10. Well-done red meat  
  11. Carbonated beverages 
  12. Skins of baked root vegetables 

"Grains ruin digestion, and the body is not meant to eat it. You can have rice once in a while, but if you go grain free, you don't have to worry about gluten."

There are many ways to go grain-free. A perfect example is eating cauliflower rice. Lentil pasta is the healthier and tastier alternative to wheat-based pasta. A dose of healthy fats is also good. You must, however, choose the right kind of oil because any oil goes rancid if over-exposed to air.

As for the liquid intake, never drink sodas before or after meals. I know most of you out there have your parents tell you that drinking sodas are bad for you. And it's true! Carbonated drinks mess up our stomach acids.

"The stomach is smart, and we shouldn't mess with it. It has its wave of acids. Before meals, take digestive enzymes that support healthy stomach acid. A great example is drinking apple cider vinegar with your meal."

IgG Food Allergy Test  

I did this IgG (immunoglobulin G) test which helped determine the foods I should avoid. You may be just like me who has had health conditions that doctors could not identify at first because we were unaware that we're allergic to certain foods.  

Great Plains Laboratory administered my test and the results greatly helped in guiding me towards the right kinds of food to eat. The IgG Food Allergy Test answered a lot of questions surrounding my health condition that also had doctors puzzled.   

Eat Right, Feel Right  

I ate a lot of eggs to get pregnant. But after I got pregnant, I developed an allergic reaction to eggs that's why I had to stop eating them for a year. Since I was taking supplements and my food choices were better, re-introducing eggs into my diet after a year did not cause any adverse reaction.  

Taking supplements is not going to cure you of your health condition. But it has been proven that it can help strengthen your immune system if it is paired with the right diet and regular exercise. That's the secret to being healthy. Also, your body works optimally only when your immune system is robust and healthy.   

"You cannot 'out-exercise' nor 'out-supplement' a bad or an inadequate diet. Everything has to go hand in hand. Essentially, you have to bring lifestyle into account."

I'd like to again convey my gratitude to Jennifer Saltzman who took over the reins and interviewed me for this episode. Jennifer Saltzman has been a personal trainer for over two decades. She has a degree in Bachelor of Arts in modern dance, has a Pilates Instructor certification, Integrative Medicine certification, as well as a Metabolic Typing Advisor certification.  

Jennifer Saltzman is also a Supplement Coach who can guide you on what kind of supplements are best for you.

Finding The Cure

http://learntruehealth.com/finding-the-cure

Many of my listeners have been curious about my story of finding the cure for my various health conditions. Over the years, I have dealt with so much! So this time around, the tables have turned. I have onboard Jennifer Saltzman, a friend and Pilates instructor who I decided to give the honor of putting me on the hot seat for this podcast episode.

My Backstory

Jennifer Saltzman thought it was best that I start off this episode with my backstory. Well, ever since I could remember, I have always been a sickly child. I remember being a six-year-old first grader who constantly had a sore throat and clogged sinuses among others. It was indeed frustrating finding a cure for my health disorders.

During that same time in the early 80s, my mother developed Candida. And because she was a workaholic, she tried finding a cure by taking medication to keep working. However, it seemed finding a cure was useless. She still suffered from fatigue, muscle weakness, and brain fog.

In what seemed like a desperate attempt then to finding a cure, my mom eventually found a Naturopath. That doctor told us that my mother and I both had blood type O. No big deal, right? Wrong. That same doctor dropped the bomb by announcing that apparently, I was allergic to milk, yeast, wheat, and sugar!

My Parents

My mother was my best friend. She read all these articles on antioxidants. On our quest to finding a cure for our health conditions, we went to acupuncturists together. We even enjoyed the services of a massage therapist who would come to our house once a week.

My dad, on the other hand, had his health challenges. Because he primarily had weight issues, I did a bunch of diets with him, too. And oh, how he loved eating out! However, even if he loved eating meat, his meals were always dairy-free, grain-free and gluten-free.

My parents were both A-types. They were both headstrong. My mother, in particular, had an air of elegant grace. She turned heads and held her ground with such authority. Furthermore, she was excellent in integrating self-care into her life.

Shifting To A Whole Foods Diet

When the Naturopathic doctor first declared that I was allergic to so many things, it didn't quite sink in the first time. At six years old, I had no idea that the revelation would change my life. All I cared about was whether I could still eat my favorite Coffee Crisp chocolate bars.

I told Jennifer Saltzman that I remember going home that day with my mom carrying a bunch of powder supplements from that doctor. It was also the same day that my mom got rid of all the "bad foods" and switched to a whole foods diet.

Yes, it was drastic but looking back, it was incredible how my health changed so much in just a span of a few days. We even switched to soy milk during those times when it was still GMO-free.

"I was symptom-free. It was like heaven! All we had to do was eat a whole foods diet, void of processed foods and take supplements."

Right from the time my mother put me on a whole foods diet, I was hardly sick from six years old until I became a teenager. However, when I turned 13, I decided to rebel by eating candy and cafeteria food. As expected, I lost my health and spent the next few years finding a cure to get my health back.

Then when I was 19 years old, I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome. Early on, the doctors told me I would never have kids. Spending most of my adult life without a feminine cycle, I gradually developed other diseases along the way.

Getting Married

I'm now 37 years old and have been married for nine years. My husband knew that I couldn't have kids, but that didn't stop us from trying. Then the unexpected happened.

"We went through the first six years without medical intervention. However, when we discovered supplements and a healthy way of eating, we got pregnant on our first attempt!"

We're now parents of a very healthy baby boy, and we couldn't be any happier. Not only did we prove doctors wrong, but eating right really does make a significant difference.

"Taking more digestive enzymes made my pregnancy so much easier. Naturopathic medicine or Homeopathic medicine is so powerful. It does work."

Coping With Diseases

Looking back, I had a roller coaster of diseases I battled with over the years. I also kept gaining weight year after year. It baffled me because I was athletic when I was growing up.

However, I think all that started to change when my mom passed away of liver cancer when I was 22 years old. It was a dark time in my life, and I was depressed for a few years. It was so bad that shortly after my mom's death, I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia and type 2 diabetes.

"Depression doesn't want to make you take care of yourself. I ended up making a lot of bad choices and developed chronic adrenal fatigue. I drank a lot of coffee, and I also developed chronic infections."

Moving To The United States

When I first moved to the United States years ago, things didn't get any better. My health deteriorated even faster because I was also juggling many responsibilities with my job as a manager.

When I eventually met my husband, Duffy, I found it funny that he and I are allergic to almost the same foods. And would you believe, I'm allergic to bananas? Surprising but true!

My husband had arthritis, high blood pressure, and blood sugar issues. I, on the other hand, was primarily struggling with weight issues. By that time, I had already tried over 32 diets, but none of them worked.

Aha Moment

My aha moment came one day when my husband and I were watching a health documentary. It was around 2008 or 2009. Anyway, that documentary had such a tremendous impact that my husband and I decided to try shifting to an organic foods diet.

"Taking on the organic foods challenge for a month, I didn't get sick. I even stopped taking antibiotics. In short, I felt amazing!"

The Power Of Supplements

Now that my husband and I got on the right path with eating organic or whole foods, we also discovered the benefits of taking supplements. It may seem costly at first, but it pays off in the long run.

"My blood sugar was so unstable that I felt like a prisoner of my own body. So I started drinking liquid minerals. My blood sugar began to balance within a few hours of taking supplements, and my energy level was high within five days."

Eventually healing from diabetes and high blood pressure, I diminished the need to eat all the time. Hence, our food budget went down. Saving a monthly average of 300 dollars, my husband and I allotted that amount for our supplements.

"Doctors wanted to give me more medication to manage the side effects. But I took myself off medicines. I would rather live with the original symptoms I had than living with the side effects of drugs."

Learn True Health Podcast

Overcoming all those diseases and healing from them inspired me to share my story with other people. And because I found ways to empower myself in being healthy, I felt the need to share my knowledge on a bigger scale.

My husband knew that I loved podcasts and encouraged me to launch one. Hence, the Learn True Health podcast was born.

"It's pretty life changing when your life goes from being very dysfunctional to optimized. It's such an incredible blessing."

This concludes Part 1 of this two-part series. Please link to episode 180 for Part 2 where I delve into issues like healing heartburn, 12 fad foods that deteriorate health and more on how I healed from my health conditions. See you in the next episode!

High Vibration Foods

http:/learntruehealth.com/high-vibration-foods

High Vibration Foods To Achieve Optimal Health

High vibration foods may sound new to some people, but you'll be amazed how it tweaks our body to an optimal level. While many are obsessed with the calories in our diet, my guest today, Robyn Openshaw debunks that long-time diet myth. Apparently, high vibration foods can affect our health on a cellular, emotional and spiritual level.

Sickly Past

Robyn Openshaw initially stumbled on discovering the awesome effects of high vibration foods through green smoothies. This was when she was on a mission searching for a cure for her son's asthma.

Aside from her son's health situation, Robyn Openshaw had a more shocking health past. Before the birth of her first child, Robyn Openshaw went through five years of infertility. Add on to that; she had a total of 21 diagnosed diseases!

Despite being an athlete during her younger years, she found herself obese in her late 20s. She took a lot of medication daily. Robyn Openshaw was miserable. However, she took the bull by its horns and decided to do something to change her and her family's life.

Turning To Green Smoothies

Bent on taking her son and herself off medication, Robyn Openshaw extensively researched on the healthiest method possible. The first thing she did was to eliminate processed foods, dairy, and sugar. In hindsight, Robyn Openshaw discovered that diet does make a difference.

Next thing she did was to experiment on blending organic vegetables. One day, her then one-year-old son was curious enough to try a glass of green smoothie. Surprisingly, he liked it! Hence, green smoothies became a staple in Robyn Openshaw's family.

Greatest Inspiration

Robyn Openshaw says her biggest inspiration is her grandmother who beat cancer by being entirely plant-based. Initially diagnosed with metastatic stage 3c melanoma, doctors told her she only had a year to live.

Her grandmother drank so much carrot juice as part of her diet of high vibration foods. She went on to live for another 25 years and was there when all four of Robyn Openshaw's babies were born.

On the other hand, Robyn Openshaw's uncle who was likewise diagnosed with cancer did not have the same fate. Opting for radiation and chemotherapy, Robyn Openshaw's uncle died 18 months after his diagnosis.

Understanding Food Frequencies

High vibration foods is not a new science. Robyn Openshaw says studies touched on the idea decades ago, but no one took it seriously then. Fortunately, since juicing and smoothies have become popular, more people now believe in the benefits of digesting high vibration foods.

"Einstein's way of thinking has permeated so many parts of life these days. He said everything about life is vibration," said Robyn Openshaw. "If you want the secret of the universe, think about energy, frequency, and vibration."

Furthermore, Robyn Openshaw says we are evaluating our food with some dated concept. For example, the whole idea of calories was invented 170 years ago. According to Robyn Openshaw, the only thing counting calories is good for is standardizing packaged food. It has nothing to do whether we are healthy or not.

High Vibration Foods List

Thanks to the concept of Quantum Physics, it has been proven that we can measure the frequency of food and human in Hertz. Apparently, a disease cannot live in a body that is in a state of high frequency.

According to Robyn Openshaw, 50 to 55 Hertz puts you on the sick level. Ideally, a healthy person should have a frequency of 62 to 68 Hertz. On the other hand, people on their deathbed have frequencies as low as 25 Hertz.

"We could eat foods that are higher than us in Hertz. It could raise the frequency or vibration of the body," Robyn Openshaw said.

Robyn Openshaw has a list of high vibration foods and guess what? She's giving it to Learn True Health listeners for free! So to those who wish to download the list, you may link to www.learntruhealth.com/vibelist.

Effects of Digesting High Vibration Foods

Robyn Openshaw says that when we look at the vibrational frequency of our food, the substance of a higher frequency can cause the substance of a lower frequency to increase. The reverse of that is true as well.

Essentially, digesting high vibration foods has an incredible application for what we're using to medicate ourselves with. It has powerful implications for the food that we are choosing to eat.

"What's on the back of your food packages doesn't have anything to do whether you're going to be disease-proof or prone to disease," explains Robyn Openshaw. "When things are going well, you can handle some setbacks. It's not about eating perfectly, but rather it's about having enough healthy consistent habits in your life."

Link Between Foods And Our Moods

Part of Robyn Openshaw's wellness program is teaching people how to detox, ground and charge food to metabolize your emotions. This she says, helps bring you to a higher vibration state.

Part of the research that Robyn Openshaw is currently into is understanding the correlation between food and our moods. Apparently, food plays a big part whenever we experience emotions or mood swings.

A low vibrating life would be people who always replay wrongs that other people do rather than releasing those emotions. Theoretically, letting go of old wounds is one of the more powerful ways to be healthy.

"There's so much that we do when it comes to metabolizing our emotions leading to a disease-proof state," said Robyn Openshaw. "Ten hertz of energy spells a big difference between health and sickness."

Furthermore, Robyn Openshaw says that whenever we choose the higher frequency emotions, we are attracting better things. This also applies during the times when we quickly metabolize the negative events and emotions in our lives.

"We are always attracting and repelling," said Robyn Openshaw. "When you are a high vibration person, you find more flow in your life. You find that you're choosing between a bunch of good opportunities."

Furthermore, Robyn Openshaw says that people who are peaceful, forgive easily, and do not live in negative emotions, don't die of heart disease and cancer. Consequently, they have high rates of what medicine would call spontaneous remission.

Continuous Research

Robyn Openshaw is currently working with Beverly Rubeck, another scientist. Together, they are studying the measurement of vibrational frequency by using a bioplatonic scanner as well as bioplatonic emissions.

These emissions are the weak light emitted from foods. Their research will hopefully show what exactly happens to a person after eating certain kinds of foods.

"We are electrical beings. And that's why we need to drink water," said Robyn Openshaw. "We need conductivity and not only cleansing."

Book Author

Making Peace With Food

http://learntruehealth.com/making-peace-with-food

Women are built in all shapes and sizes. And modern society made a lot of women think that being thin is and should be the end goal. However, my guest, Geneen Roth says that losing weight doesn't necessarily mean it is good for us. In this episode, she will explain why we must delve into the root cause to make peace with food.

The Desire To Be Thin

Like most women today, Geneen Roth was obsessed with being thin. As young as 11 years old, she was made to believe that her worth depended on her weight.

Trying out every diet and diet pills, Geneen Roth used to be on an endless search for the best way to lose weight. She was a compulsive eater. It was likewise her coping mechanism whenever she was troubled or stressed. Consequently, Geneen Roth was blind-sided that she was at peace with food.

"I defined myself by the size of my thighs and belly. At a very young age until my late twenties, I was constantly on radical diets and diet pills," shared Geneen Roth.

Downward Spiral

When Geneen Roth started gaining weight from all the food she was eating, she decided it was time to lose weight. You'd think by this period she was at peace with food, right? Wrong. It became worse.

On a downward spiral, Geneen Roth jogged 4 miles a day. She also thought that if she could just eat a total of 150 calories a day, it would make her lose weight faster. And it did. However, dropping down to 80 pounds was certainly not a healthy weight.

Not knowing how to find peace with food, Geneen Roth eventually became suicidal. There just seemed to be no way out from her anorexic state. She harbored feelings of guilt for not being "good enough," and was ashamed of being overweight.

Rising From the Ashes

During her period of soul-searching, Geneen Roth came across a book. According to her, that book opened up her eyes to find her real worth. After being burdened so many years battling low self-esteem, Geneen Roth slowly healed and eventually found peace with food.

"Sometimes, when we lose weight, we still feel like crap," Geneen Roth said. "Because whenever we think that something out there is going to fix something in the inside of us, we're always disappointed."

Ultimately, Geneen Roth could finally say she found peace with food only when she embraced her true self. Realizing the unhealthy mindset of being dependent on others for love and validation made Geneen Roth able to heal from anorexia.

Paying It Forward

Now that she has healed from anorexia, Geneen Roth embarked on a mission to help others who were in the same situation as she was years ago. Helping others get into the right mindset ultimately results in being at peace with food.

"I teach people how to disengage. Individuals who are struggling with food, often feel like they're not supposed to sit down," explains Geneen Roth. "Hence, disengaging from that voice is very important."

Being In The Present

Having the right mindset spells a big difference on the road to finding peace with food. Food neither has to be feared or shunned. According to Geneen Roth, once you learn to listen to your body and love yourself more, your relationship with food gets better.

Consequently, it's all about accepting yourself and that women are not built the same way. While it is essential to keep your weight at a healthy level, it should not dictate your self-worth.

"I have discovered that most people aren't present most of the time. Because we're always thinking about the next thing," said Geneen Roth. "Sometimes being aware of your right hand and feeling the life force in it can help you come back to your body. It's a great way to be alive."

Make Peace With Food Workshop

Geneen Roth has an excellent workshop coming up next month. The Make Peace With Food workshop will show you tips and tricks on how you can attain your natural weight. Furthermore, the workshop will empower you to practice a healthy relationship with food and be more mindful of what your body is saying.

Divided into three segments --- Vitality, Radiance and Weight Loss, Geneen Roth's workshop is the complete package to a better you!

"We eat the way we live. You find out everything you want to know about yourself by looking at your relationship with food," said Geneen Roth.

6-Day Retreat

Now, who doesn't love a quick getaway? Well, Geneen Roth also offers a 6-Day Retreat to heal your body, soul, and spirit. The retreat will explore avenues where you get to reset your mindset into being more in tune with your body.

In just less than a week, you will emerge refreshed, enlightened and empowered to live life with pure joy and happiness. Goodbye to the old and hello to a new you!

Geneen Roth's Books

You will just love browsing through Geneen Roth's website where you'll see links to all her published books. Ranging from food to soul-searching and finding true happiness, there's even a coloring book!

Women, Food and God coloring book, is a stress-buster. Containing pages of quotes and images to color, it is a #1 New York Times bestseller and currently available for pre-order on Geneen Roth's official website.

Geneen Roth is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Women Food and God. She has appeared on many national television shows including The Oprah Show, 20/20, The NBC Nightly News, The View, CBS Early Show, The Today Show, and Good Morning America.

Articles about Geneen Roth and her work have appeared in numerous publications including O: The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Time, Elle, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, and The Philadelphia Inquirer. She has written monthly columns for Good Housekeeping Magazine and Prevention Magazine. Geneen Roth is the author of nine books, including bestsellers, Lost and Found and When Food Is Love.

Reframing Negative Thoughts

http://learntruehealth.com/reframe-negative-thoughts

How To Reframe Negative Thoughts  

Life can get crazy and stressful. And sometimes, things can bring us into a downward spiral. For some, it may be emotional. But for others, it may be something physical like leaning on comfort food or dealing with weight issues. However, regardless of what situation we are in, my guest, Christa King, says we can weather through all that if we just know how to develop a positive attitude.   

Christa's Fitness Journey  

All success stories come from a sincere motivation to improve and be better. As for Christa King, her journey to a positive attitude revolved around weight issues.   

"Five years ago, I was 50 pounds overweight. My relationships were suffering. I held a Vice President position at work and dealt with a lot of office politics which gave me stress," shares Christa King.  

Unfortunately, Christa King did not learn the best ways to cope with stress. Relying on sugar, alcohol and refined carbs, she thought it was the best solution to handling stress. However, because of that unhealthy pattern, it led her to gain a lot of weight. Her body, mind, and soul were simply out of balance.   

Finally reaching an all-time high of 192 pounds, Christa King decided enough is enough. Signing up with experts to help her develop a positive attitude, Christa King spent five days with 11 different practitioners. She also reveals that for those who are dealing with weight issues, it is best to keep a food journal to keep track of what you are eating.  

Now motivated to maintain her healthy lifestyle, Christa King left her corporate career behind and became a certified hypnotherapist within four months.  She went on to pursue training to become a health coach as well as a nutritional therapist.   

Cracking The Code  

Looking back, Christa King realized that the diet and fitness industry lacks a holistic approach to dealing with weight issues. Society has long ingrained in our minds that being unhealthy is our fault. Hence, making it hard for us to develop a positive attitude.  

"Through my health journey, not only did I crack the code for my own body. But I also found what was missing," said Christa King. "What is missing is being able to address the deep neuropathways in the brain that drive 90% of our behavior."

According to Christa King, shame is one of the causes of why we fail to develop a positive attitude. We must learn not to let shame control us. Otherwise, it would be hard for us to have a healthy relationship with ourselves.   

"Shame comes from all the myths that add up to tell us that we have failed," Christa King explains. "When it is the diet and fitness industry that failed us. Hence, we must focus on positive thought patterns."

And just how can we focus on thought patterns? We can do it by releasing the shame and tell ourselves that it is not our fault. Christa King says this is because our body is wired to make us feel safe.  

Handling Stress  

Learning how to conquer stress will greatly help you develop a positive attitude. Just as long as you are in tune to what your mind and body needs, we could quickly identify what are the things that stress us out.   

"Every single body is different. So you want to model optimum health for yourself by thinking of ways on how you can manage your stress," said Christa King.

Now, I know most of you have heard this before --- Exercise is good for you. And it's true! More than the physical benefits, exercising does make us stronger mentally as well. Christa King also says it is best to exercise in the morning.  

"When we workout in the morning, we are getting all those endorphins," says Christa King. "Pumping our brain full of oxygen helps carry us through our day. It helps in concentration, productivity and managing our stress."  

Mindzoning 

Christa King offers a program called Mindzoning. It is a series of audio recordings which are identical to a guided meditation. Ranging from 5 to 45 minutes, most of the recordings are Christa King's voice and mixed with spa music.   

According to Christa King, Mindzoning helps you develop a positive attitude by changing your thought patterns. You will just be amazed at the power of what your mind can do!  

"Over time, you start to take on those thoughts and suggestions," said Christa King. "But a lot of the Mindzoning are geared to tap into the deep part of your mind. Having a conscious mind creates new thought patterns."  

Ideally, listening to the audio recordings are best done in the morning. Christa King says that this way, you get to feel energized the whole day. Once the mind is relaxed, we can quickly take on a new thought pattern.   

Strategic Vitality Book  

This is an amazing e-book wherein Christa King expounds on the 11 steps on how to transform yourself. It teaches you how to reframe negative thoughts into positive ones. Best of all, you don't have to do it by yourself. If you are struggling with the process, you may do this with a friend. Now, that's fun!  

"We all have a negative bias. It's how our primal brain is wired. It served us well back in caveman days. We were always on alert for danger," Christa King said. "Unfortunately, we are presented with so much stress in our modern day and doesn't serve us well."

After surviving a high-stress corporate career, Christa King set out on a journey to find balance, joy and to get her healthy-self back. She went from being 50 lbs. overweight to becoming a certified hypnotherapist, health coach, nutritional therapist, and the founder of Fitlandia.

Goat Milk Stuff

http://learntruehealth.com/goat-milk/

More people are shunning cow milk from their diet. And for an excellent reason, too! Cow milk can be hard to digest, not to mention inflammatory for some people. On the contrary, goat milk has a lot more benefits, whether you drink it or use it on your skin. My guest today, PJ Jonas, will tell us why.

Making The Switch

PJ Jonas is a mother of eight children, all homeschooled. Yes, you read it right. Eight children! She turned into such a big advocate for goat milk after discovering the harmful ingredients in bath soap in 2005.

Not wanting toxic chemicals on her children’s skin, PJ Jonas went to look for natural ingredients that are both gentle and moisturizing on the skin. But since it was illegal to purchase raw milk in Indiana, PJ Jonas decided to get some dairy goats instead. And lo and behold, it turns out that goat milk was healthier than cow milk!

“The main difference is the digestibility of the goat milk. There is no adverse reaction, unlike cow milk. Plus, it has a lot of nutrients,” explains PJ Jonas.

Developing The Goat Milk Stuff Brand

Apart from soaps, PJ Jonas eventually learned to make cheese and gelato using goat milk. Developing the brand for three years, PJ Jonas started giving out product samples in 2008.

Apparently, Goat Milk Stuff is very much a family business. PJ Jonas proudly reveals that all her kids are involved. From the production to paying their taxes, managing accounts and dealing with customers, everyone contributes to building the brand.

It was, however, not all smooth sailing for PJ Jonas. During the time between 2005 and 2008, the family experienced a budget shortfall. Despite the setback, the whole family was able to pull through.

“Sometimes it’s the things that you think are the biggest disasters in your life, are pushing you exactly where you need to go,” said PJ Jonas.

PJ Jonas says that when you’re building a company, it takes cash to fund and fuel that growth. And lack of money flow is what usually puts companies out of business.

“Very few companies go out of business for growing too slowly. But many companies go out of business because they grow too quickly,” observes PJ Jonas.

Benefits of Goat Milk

Goat milk is a viable option to those who have a hard time digesting cow milk. Only two percent of goat milk is curd, whereas cow milk has 10 percent. Goat milk also has fewer allergenic proteins. Hence, causes less inflammation.

If you’re worried about your calcium intake requirement, you’d be surprised to know that goat milk is richer in minerals than cow milk. It’s also high in fatty acids but low in cholesterol.

“Goat milk itself has healing properties. It is high in selenium and good for the skin,” explains PJ Jonas.

Success Stories

PJ Jonas first tried out the goat milk soap on her husband Jim, who dealt with cracked and split fingertips for years. Within two to three days of using goat milk soap, his fingertips were healed!

She also observed that her children’s skin looked better. Furthermore, the children rarely got sick anymore because they consistently drank goat milk. Because of this, PJ Jonas decided to get the message out so more people could benefit from it as well.

In 2008, when PJ Jonas started giving out free samples, the response was very positive. Moms of kids who had eczema called in to report that the Goat Milk Stuff soap improved their children’s skin considerably.

Apart from that, many others shared that the goat milk soap alleviated the symptoms of many other skin problems. Slowly but surely, the Goat Milk Stuff brand gained a lot of publicity. People were just amazed!

“When you make a difference in someone’s life, all the hard work is worth it,” says PJ Jonas.

Looking Ahead

The Jonas family is currently looking into building a larger barn to accommodate their Alpine goats. This year, PJ Jonas says that they will be milking 80 goats twice a day and offering the milk products for sale on their website.

PJ Jonas, however, cautions those who plan to get into the goat milk business as well. She stresses the importance of finding a good breeder who makes sure the goats they breed are in tip-top shape.

Goat Milk Products

If you look at the Goat Milk Stuff website, there are a plethora of products. Apart from the different kinds of bar and liquid soaps, the brand also offers solid lotions and deodorants with a detoxifying effect.

Another great product to try is the laundry soap. PJ Jonas explains that the soap has special oils intended to break down grease stains and help fight bacteria.

PJ Jonas reveals that the conventional laundry soap has an optical brightener. Apparently, it tricks your eye into making your clothes look brighter than they are. It has to bind to clothing, hence, causing a lot of irritation.

“Everybody is different. Take time to find something that works well for you and understand its limitations,” advises PJ Jonas. ” Our liver is excellent at detoxifying your body, but it is just overwhelmed. So we have to get rid of as many toxins as we can. Finding the things that are good for you is worth the effort.”

PJ Jonas is a business owner, goat wrangler, entrepreneur, and mother. After getting goats to provide healthy milk for her eight children, she decided to put excess milk into a batch of handmade soap. That decision was the start of Goat Milk Stuff Her Goat Milk products have been featured on The Today Show, The Doctors, and the “O” Oprah Winfrey magazine. 

PJ Jonas puts her systems engineering degree from the University of Virginia to good use while managing her business, farm, and family. This is a great story of how a business was started in her kitchen and grew it into a million dollar business.

http://amzn.to/2whTQ7k

 

Souping Is The New Juicing

 http://learntruehealth.com/souping-new-juicing/

Juicing shot up the popularity meter ever since people have attested to its benefits. Soups, on the other hand, have been around way longer and has its advantages, too. However, people more often than not, confuse the two. So I'm glad to have Cherie Calbom back on the show to explain why souping is the new juicing.

Cherie Calbom graduated with a Master of Science degree in Whole Foods Nutrition from Bastyr University. Aside from her interest in the Holistic world, her passion was initially triggered by her health journey.

It turns out that Cherie Calbom dealt with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue for years. However, after doing juicing and souping for three months, she was able to heal herself. This led Cherie Calbom to develop juicing and soup recipes to help other people as well.

Soup Recipes

"I have a lot of raw soups. We came up with title to encompass a broad range of mixtures," said Cherie Calbom. "Souping encompasses all the blending such as cold soups, cooked soups, and chunky soups."

Out of all the type of soups, Cherie Calbom says that raw soups have the most enzymes and vitamins are well-preserved. Soups 118 degrees or below is likewise still considered raw food as well as dehydrated foods.

Essentially, souping is a new concept. More importantly, it does not eject the pulp of the ingredients. Hence, it preserves the nutrients. Because of this, Cherie Calbom says that raw soups are often requested by her clients in her detoxification program.

Ideal Comfort Food

Cherie Calbom says souping triggers memories. Hence, it is regarded as an excellent comfort food aside from its healing properties. A perfect example of this is chicken soup. People have many versions of chicken soup. However, people usually associate it with the times when they are cared for by their loved ones whenever they are sick.

On the other hand, my personal experience with soups is when my husband's constipation was healed after giving him bone broth-based soups once a day for a week. A Naturopath initially suggested making my husband drink soups to heal the gut. I admit I was skeptical at first, but I eventually turned into a believer after my husband was healed.

Watercress Soup Diet

Cherie Calbom attests that her watercress soup diet is highly effective. In fact, she previously had 55 ladies who signed up for her soup challenge, and all had positive feedback about the diet.

"They had two meals that were soup. One is like a smoothie or whole soup for breakfast and then watercress soup for lunch," said Cherie Calbom. "Watercress soup takes away appetite. Dinner was low-carb, and starches and protein were omitted."

Success Stories

According to Cherie Calbom, her clients mostly lost a considerable amount of weight. Some patients lost an average of 7 to 19 pounds while one client lost as much as 24 lbs.!

"The watercress diet got rid of water. It also helped that clients on a diet avoided all inflammatory foods like sweets, dairy, grains, junk food and sports drinks," Cherie Calbom said. "Clients lost an average of 2.5 lbs a week. Their blood sugar likewise went down."

Nutritional Benefits Of Watercress

Cherie Calbom says that in a recent study of superfoods, research showed that watercress garnered a score of 100 regarding which vegetable had the most nutrients. It beat out things like kale and spinach. Hence, Cherie Calbom advises people that watercress should be every part of a treatment plan.

She cautions, however, to make sure to buy watercress from a good source. Otherwise, we would be in danger of getting liver parasites. Furthermore, Cherie Calbom clarified that consuming organic watercress provides maximum nutrient benefits. She affirms that doing a watercress diet is indeed extremely useful for healing thyroid problems.

"Thyroid issues are becoming very common today due to halogens in our environment," said Cherie Calbom. "Watercress is effective in healing thyroid problems because it is rich in iodine."

Cherie Calbom's Book

Souping is the New Juicing is Cherie Calbom's new book. The book is a wealth of information and recipes aimed at cleansing, weight loss, and healing. Furthermore, souping is perfect for those people who do not have time to do juicing.

Available on Amazon as well as on Cherie Calbom's official website, the book includes lots of soups using watercress.

30-Day Detox Program

Signing up for this program is an excellent way to get rid of toxins in the body. Most people do not realize that having so much waste and heavy metals in the body hampers the organs from functioning well.

Clients will likewise be educated on the right foods to eat and how these foods stimulate the body. Once people understand how consuming the right foods can help them attain optimal health, the next step would be to help them maintain the diet.

"You can heal your body at the cellular level. It can help you change your life," Cherie Calbom said. "As long as you are willing to do the work, there are high hopes that you can change what is going on."

Cherie Calbom MSN holds a Master of Science degree in whole foods nutrition from Bastyr University.

Known as "The Juice Lady" for her work with juicing and health, she is the author of 33 books including her latest The Juice Lady's Guide to Fasting and Sugar Knockout.

She and her husband offer juice cleanse retreats throughout the year, 30-Day Detox online and Garden's Best Juice Powder. She has lectured worldwide on juicing, detoxing and fasting including consulting for the Royal Family of the UAE.

Winner of the TTAC Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with juicing and detoxification, Calbom's blogs and books on juicing, cleansing and health have helped thousands of people live healthier lives.

She has appeared on CNN, Fox News, and WCBS/NY. Her articles have appeared in NY Daily News, Miami Herald, Essence Magazine, First for Women, and Woman's World.

Neurofeedback

http://learntruehealth.com/neurofeedback/

Neurofeedback: Unlocking The Brain

The brain is such a powerful tool yet there are secrets to its power that we have yet to unlock. Hence, my guest, Dr. Andrew Hill is here to teach us how to make our brain function optimally. He will also explain what neurofeedback is all about.

How It All Began

Dr. Andrew Hill has been involved in clinical work for more than two decades. In college, he worked in a residential facility for developmentally disabled adults. Because these people were primarily non-verbal, Dr. Andrew Hill had to learn different techniques on how to understand them.

“The verbal challenge in these individuals was so profound. I had to communicate with people in a very different way,” recalls Dr. Andrew Hill.

Incidentally, the state of California and Massachusetts tend to lead the way in progressive health care reform in the United States. This piqued Dr. Andrew Hill’s interest to work with different populations.

Dr. Andrew Hill was working in in-patient psychology when he first heard about neurofeedback. He eventually went on to graduate school to learn more about neurofeedback.

What is Neurofeedback?

According to Dr. Andrew Hill, neurofeedback is a form of Biofeedback in the brain. It was invented about 50 years ago.

Neurofeedback was developed through the work of Dr. Joe Kamiya at the University of Chicago in the 1950s. It was eventually followed by Dr. Barry Sterman’s work at UCLA in the 1960s.

Primarily, neurofeedback trains the brain to efficiently function. It is also known as EEG Biofeedback based on the EEG or electroencephalogram. The EEG is a test to monitor the electrical activity of the brain.

Neurofeedback Through the Years

During the 70s, neurofeedback was seen as a formed of spiritual development. It became known as a meditation or spiritual tool. There were conflicts in religious beliefs and limited medical findings at the time. Hence, people were skeptical about neurofeedback.

However, because of constant research through the years that followed, neurofeedback was eventually used to treat patients with ADHD, psychological, and central nervous system disorders. It can also be used for treating stress and other emotional conditions.

Dr. Andrew Hill, in fact, worked at the Neurodevelopment Center in Providence Island years ago, before opening his practice. The center specialized in addressing autistic spectrum disorders.

“I witnessed autism symptoms getting reduced. Traits like obsessions, anxiety, over-arousal of things, eye contact, sense of humor and language significantly improved,” Dr. Andrew Hill said.

He also said that the limits on real neurofeedback research are therapy. This is because you can’t patent it. Furthermore, it’s hard to get funding for large studies.

According to Dr. Andrew Hill, the reason studies need to be large is because each person needs 30 to 50 sessions each. In addition to that, each treatment is tailor-made to the client.

Techniques of Neurofeedback

Mental Health professionals perform neurofeedback by placing a lot of wires called electrodes to the scalp. This allows them the ability to monitor brainwave activity through a special computer software.

Though the software has some limitations, it aids a person into changing brain activity to a recommended level. Consequently, the brain is being molded into operating on a more regulated performance.

Peak Brain Institute

Dr. Andrew Hill’s Peak Brain Institute offers QEEG brain mapping, wherein every treatment is tailor-made for the client. The length of the program varies, and a qualified Peak Brain neuroscience team ensures follow-up sessions after your program is done.

Clients are likewise taught how to monitor their brain activity on their own. But there are a lot of EEG headsets that are unreliable. Hence, Dr. Andrew Hill said it is best to get some assistance with a qualified neuroscience team.

“I don’t think the most elaborate neurofeedback approaches are better. It can be misleading and they don’t do the work,” said Dr. Andrew Hill. “Our offices helps patients for first three months. And then we adjust protocols.”

Role of Diet and Nutrition

Dr. Andrew Hill says people with conditions like ADHD improve within 4 to 5 months of training. However, aside from the treatment, diet, and nutrition plays a significant role in making sure our brain is healthy.

“The right diet significantly improves your brain’s health. Consequently, one should minimize sugar and maximize healthy fats,” advises Dr. Andrew Hill.

The Best Intervention

Many ask if neurofeedback is a cure. It is not. However, there have been numerous success stories attesting to the fact that neurofeedback significantly improved their health condition.

In this regard, Dr. Andrew Hill likewise highly recommends people to learn the power of meditation. According to him, meditation is the process of anchoring or learning to stabilize your condition effortlessly.

Dr. Andrew Hill believes that people can get good at meditation over time. Ideally, meditating at least 20 minutes for 10 to 15 days in a row can produce significant results.

“Adhere to the process of evaluating what’s going on. Be curious, not judgemental,” said Dr. Andrew Hill. “Especially in meditation, you become flexible. Being healthy is not something you do in the gym. It’s what you do in your life.”

Dr. Andre Hill is one of the top peak performance coaches in the country. He holds a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from UCLA’s Department of Psychology and continues to do research on attention and cognition. Research methodology includes EEG, QEEG, and ERP. He has been practicing neurofeedback since 2003.

In addition to founding Peak Brain Institute, Dr. Andrew Hill is host of the Head First Podcast with Dr. Hill. He is also the Lead Neuroscientist at truBrain, and lectures at UCLA, teaching courses in psychology, neuroscience, and gerontology.

Functional Nutrition

http://learntruehealth.com/functional-nutrition/

Understanding Functional Nutrition

Many of you may have never heard of Functional Nutrition or do not know what it is. It is a relatively new specialty which looks at the way our body is affected by food on a cellular level. Josh Gitalis is on board with us today to expound on what Functional Nutrition is all about.

Getting Into Functional Nutrition

For someone as young as Josh Gitalis, his impressive resume blew me away! He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario in 2004. In 2006, he became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).

Pursuing further studies in the Holistic world, Josh Gitalis graduated with honors from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in 2007.  A notch on his Functional Nutrition belt is becoming a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner in 2016.

However, Josh Gitalis’ list of accomplishments doesn’t stop there. Aside from Functional Nutrition, he has varied interests. His interests include working in the past as a personal fitness trainer and health coach. Josh Gitalis, however, decided to focus on Functional Nutrition after attending a conference on Holistic Nutrition and soil health.

Soil Health

Before we think of just eating organic foods, Josh Gitalis says we must consider soil health. He says that when we have conventional food, the soil used to grow those plants are depleted. Hence, it makes us more susceptible to disease.

How exactly are we depleting the soil? Apparently, because plants can’t protect themselves, farmers need to use massive amounts of chemicals to fend off disease and pests.

“Food is our sustenance. It is nature’s way of taking the power of all those elements and putting it in a package by what we call food,” explains Josh Gitalis. “We need healthy soil to do that because it is where our food derives all of its nutrition.”

Eating The Right Organic Foods

Now that organic food is getting popular, what are the best organic foods? For one thing, we can look at foods in the grocery store that most resembles the original food.

Josh Gitalis advises people to look at what is the most nutritious option, like wild foods. Search for foods that most resemble their ancestors. It’s not hard to look for wild foods. Wild foods have more medicinal properties. And antioxidant is a perfect example.

“Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables,” said Josh Gitalis. “Unwittingly, we’ve been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar, low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations.”

For those wanting to explore a diet of wild foods, Josh Gitalis recommends an excellent book entitled, ‘Eating On The Wild Side,’ by Jo Robinson. The book provides a list of wild foods that can easily be found in groceries and supermarkets, as well as their nutritional content.

Essential Supplements

Josh Gitalis offers a plethora of nutrition and health programs suited for your needs. A big part of his wellness programs is making sure patients benefit from four supplements as a base. These include multi-vitamins, probiotics, a healthy essential fatty acid combination, and Vitamin D. Like Vitamin D; Josh Gitalis says many people are likewise deficient in Vitamin C.

“Everyone should be taking Vitamin D,” advises Josh Gitalis. “Research shows many people are deficient in Vitamin D. It doesn’t matter where you live because most people are not outside all the time. The only way to check is through blood work.”

Consequently, he says symptoms are the language of the body. And we need to understand what that language is, so we don’t get to a point where the body is trying to yell at us. That’s what this middle ground is all about.

“Each organ, gland, and cell in our body has about four to seven times the capacity of what it needs to run its system,” Josh Gitalis explains. “The body has some resilience, and it can work both ways. We can break down our resilience until we get to the point of dysfunction or we can build resilience.”

Dealing With Stress

Josh Gitalis likewise encourages meditation to help patients cope with stress. Yoga is also an excellent way to relieve stress. According to him, all types of stress is registered in the body in the same way. The body can’t distinguish the types of stress. Hence, it is important that we have a system in place to be able to process that stress.

A good reference to help one understand the mind and body connection is the book, ‘Molecules of Emotion,’ by Candice Pert. The book provides surprising revelations about how our body is linked to our thoughts in a biomolecular point of view.

“Stress isn’t necessarily a bad thing. A small dose can be good,” said Josh Gitalis. “Exercise is a stress on the body. A little bit is good, too much is bad. If you can recover from your exercise, then you’re on the right track.”

Success Stories

Josh Gitalis claims that most of his patients attested they could handle stress better after signing up for his programs. Mostly, Josh Gitalis says this is because his programs focus on body awareness and the ability to look within.

“We all have this intuitive ability within us to know what the body needs,” said Josh Gitalis. “Health Coaching and Functional Nutrition is the future medicine. Consequently, we see results that some people might call miracles.”

Josh Gitalis has seen many sides of the health care system. He worked as part of the sports medical crew for the University of Western Ontario football team, tending to acute and chronic injury. 

Josh Gitalis then went on to work as a fitness coach and subsequently qualified as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach with the National Strength Conditioning Association. He realized that the key to optimal health is targeted nutrition and lifestyle interventions. This inspired him to gain further training as a Certified Nutritional Practitioner. 

Wanting to learn more about combining the best of conventional medicine and functional medicine, Josh Gitalis completed his Functional Medicine certification with the Institute of Functional Medicine based in Washington DC.

The Art Of Writing A Book

http://learntruehealth.com/writing-a-book/

I’m sure you’re wondering what does book publishing or writing a book have to do with Holistic health. Well, doctors, health practitioners, and health coaches have a lot of knowledge to disseminate so writing a book gets the information out there. Diana Needham is my guest today, who will show us tips and tricks on writing a book and how to market it successfully.  

By a stroke of fate, Diana Needham and I first met at a marketing seminar years ago. Dubbed as the “book shepherd” by her clients, she serves as a trusted mentor through the book creation, publishing, and launch processes. Furthermore, she supports clients to achieve more than they thought possible.  

Shifting Careers  

Incidentally, Diana Needham was in an entirely different career before being in the book publishing business. Initially working for 26 years in the banking industry, she primarily managed important strategic projects.  

However, the bank Diana Needham used to work for was purchased by one of the largest banks in the country. Diana Needham recalls that consequently, it became an unhealthy place for her. Hence, she opted for voluntary resignation.   

When her staff figured out their next career progression, Diana Needham embarked on her coach training journey. She initially started off marketing the business of small business owners. Then Diana Needham eventually was referred to an author who needed help selling her book which turned out to be a success.   

Marketing Books  

Working in the banking industry had a lot of corporate challenges, eventually leading Diana Needham to leave the industry. However, her managing and marketing skills proved to be an asset when she shifted careers.  

“The book is a powerful tool. I help people get known in our community,” said Diana Needham. “When I work with an author, it is a project. I have a gift because I foresee the end goal for a book.”   

Diana Needham says she realized that what she loved most about her career was mentoring and working with people. She describes it as engineering the marketing process in reverse. According to Diana Needham, that paves a clear path to follow that gets her clients to the finish line.   

Working With Authors  

Diana Needham’s enthusiasm in working with authors is contagious! She gushes that authors are the most amazing people to because they have a big message. And by writing a book, they can articulate it along with a big vision of individuals they want to help.  

Aside from experienced authors, Diana Needham likewise works with aspiring authors as well. According to Diana Needham, aspiring authors are usually interested in writing a book to serve as a tool to grow their business.   

Finding Out The Big Why  

Diana Needham says amazing things happen when people can articulate that big why. That is why one of the first things she asks authors is why are they writing a book.   

I need to find out why is this message in your heart and soul. You need to write down and identify what this message means to you,” said Diana Needham.

Diana Needham relates that there was a lady who wanted to write a book about the blending of essential oils. After an initial meeting, it turns out the woman’s pivotal moment for writing a book was when her husband was diagnosed with leukemia.  

The lady further revealed to Diana Needham that on her husband’s third day of treatment, the bottom of his feet was covered with thick, yellow residue. And massaging her husband’s feet with blended oils was the only thing the lady could do.   

Consequently, this experience became the lady’s ‘big why.’ And according to Diana Needham, when we articulate that ‘big why,’ that becomes the introduction to the book.  

Who Are You Writing For?  

Once you know your ‘big why‘ identify who is it that you are writing the book for. Some follow-up questions include identifying the big problem that the book solves for them. Furthermore, you must be able to identify what is the big challenge that your book aims to address.  

These questions are ideally answered before aspiring authors start writing. This way, a clear strategy can be developed to ensure the success of the book. Because without it, the book will not be able to make the impact or difference the author wants.   

Paying Attention To Content  

First of all, be detailed. Diana Needham said, when you’re writing the content, make sure it is in alignment with what you want the readers to know, accept or believe. It is also important to identify what you want the book to do for you once it is published.   

Createspace  

For first-time authors, Diana Needham usually recommends that the book is published via Amazon’s Createspace. The website is a user-friendly tool for new authors to self-publish and distribute their books, DVDs, CDs, and video downloads.  

Createspace allows print-on-demand publishing, so it is more cost-efficient and convenient for first-time authors. The marketing resources are not the same as that of a traditional publishing deal, but it has a good presence on social media especially on Amazon where most people buy their books nowadays.  

“Publishing a book is not without investment. The generation of revenue to your business comes not from the book itself,” explains Diana Needham. “It comes from clients and speaking engagements. It is used as a marketing strategy to build your business.”

Leap Of Faith  

The width of the spine of a book is dependent on the page count. Hence, Diana Needham says that if you plan to sell your book, you have to have enough pages for it to be thick enough to grab attention. 

She, however, advises authors to go ahead and write the book first. Apparently, there are many ways to add pages. Obsessing about every detail of your competition’s book would just distract you from starting your book.  

Eventually, once your book is done, Diana Needham says that the person who changes the most in this process is usually the author. This is because the message would have been clarified and articulated by the time the book is finished.  

“What resonates with people is your story. People are waiting for your message,” said Diana Needham. “Essentially, the book is the culmination of all your experiences.”

Diana Needham is a professional speaker, best-selling author, and trusted book publishing and launch consultant. She works with coaches, speakers, consultants, and small business owners who have a BIG message to share with the world. Diana Needham does this by creating effective ways to publish, launch, and market their non-fiction books and their businesses.   

With 30 best-selling authors created since 2014 (and ten more in the process right now), Diana Needham knows not only how to achieve the best seller designation but also how to be the one chosen (instead of the one chasing new clients). She teaches her clients how to reach ideal readers and customers, grows their visibility, and position themselves as an authority in their market.

How To Have Healthier Teeth

http://learntruehealth.com/how-to-have-healthier-teeth/

It is no secret that most of us spend a lot on dental health. That is why one of the things we usually remind our kids is to practice good hygiene, especially by brushing their teeth regularly. However, there are ways to prevent high dental expenses. My guest, Dr. Steven Lin, will show us how to have healthier teeth as well as keep our teeth in tip top shape.

Dr. Steven Lin’s Realization

Dr. Steven Lin has been practicing dentistry for a long time. However, Dr. Steven Lin took a hiatus at one point in his career. He felt something was missing despite being passionate about educating patients on how to have healthier teeth.

It immensely bothered him that so many kids nowadays suffer from rotten teeth. These children eventually grow up and develop gum disease. Apparently, the conventional way of hygiene like brushing and flossing wasn’t solving the cause of the problem.

Fortunately, Dr. Steven Lin rediscovered a passion for dentistry when he came across a book written in the 1930s by Dr. Weston Price, a dentist who provided a lot of eye-openers regarding dental health and how to have healthier teeth.

Nutrition and Physical Degeneration

Dr. Weston Price was a Canadian dentist who published his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration in 1939. Known for his theories regarding nutrition, dental and physical health, he initially did extensive research on focal infection theory.

Eventually shifting his focus to nutrition in the late 1800s, Dr. Weston Price started to formulate the correlation between diet and tooth decay. According to Dr. Weston Price, foods that cause nutritional deficiencies and dental problems are flour, sugar and processed vegetable fats. His book likewise expounded on the different diseases resulting from Western methods of preparing and storing foods.

Link Between Diet and Teeth

Dr. Steven Lin says people fail to realize that we have a dental disease epidemic. This dental epidemic is not merely solved by merely brushing our teeth and flossing regularly. It helps, but it does not eradicate the problem on how to have healthier teeth.

“We currently have a dental disease epidemic. Masking it with fillings and braces don’t make us get to the cause of our dental problems,” said Dr. Steven Lin. “There is indeed a strong link between the mouth and body.”

Dr. Steven Lin also believes diet plays a significant factor on how to have healthier teeth. Having crooked, rotten teeth, it apparently means our jaws aren’t growing as well. Hence, the mouth-body connection.

Connection Between Sleep and Dental Health

We all know getting enough sleep is essential to our health. Apparently, it is twice more important for kids because it affects their dental health.

Dr. Steven Lin says one of the first things he noticed with his young patients is whether or not they have dark circles under their eyes. Their lack of sleep or having sleep apnea is a dead giveaway that their teeth are in bad shape.

“If these kids, aged 4 to 10 aren’t breathing right at night, that means their brain is starving of oxygen when they’re sleeping,” explained Dr. Steven Lin. “It’s starving the most crucial developmental stages.”

And how exactly does sleep apnea affe

Kids With Crooked Teeth

Having braces puts a big dent into our dental expenses. However, Dr. Steven Lin says that crooked teeth can be prevented if we have a regular nasal breathing, correct tongue position, lip posture and skeletal posture.

Apparently, the primary factors contributing to crooked teeth are incorrect skeletal, jaw and teeth development. All these factors can be prevented by making sure our kids practice good oral hygiene as early as possible to promote the healthy growth of their teeth.

Ideally, children should have regular visits with the orthodontist at age 7. This way, they get educated on how to have healthier teeth.

The Dental Diet

The Dental Diet is Dr. Steven Lin’s 4-Day Program. The program seeks to improve dental and oral health, as well as our overall body health. Under this program, you’ll learn tips on how to have healthier teeth by eating right.

“I also train dentists and nutritionists. We need to change the whole paradigm and get to the cause,” said Dr. Steven Lin. “Furthermore, if we are losing minerals, that’s a sign that our body is in distress.”

Dr. Steven Lin also guarantees that doing his program not only will give you healthier teeth, but also improve your overall health as well. Incidentally, The Dental Diet which expounds on how to have healthier teeth is slated to be in book form and set for release in 2018.

Common Myths

There are several dental myths that Dr. Steven Lin busted. And I bet you’ll be surprised at a few common ones.

First of all, did you know that mouthwash can be bad for our teeth? Apparently, it does! Dr. Steven Lin says that mouthwash kills the good bacteria. In addition to that, having a little plaque is safe and healthy.

On the other hand, some say oil-pulling is good in healing cavities. Dr. Steven Lin says there may be a rationale behind oil-pulling. However, there is still no known clinical outcome since there’s only a certain level of a cavity that can be healed.

Despite that, Dr. Steven Lin doesn’t recommend fluoride in toothpaste. According to him, we don’t need fluoride to prevent decay. In place of that, he recommends using a pre biotic toothpaste.

Dr. Steven Lin likewise cautions against bleeding gums because this means that there is something wrong in our immune system, especially in the gut. Consequently, it can also lead to gum disease especially if we have a poor diet.

“It boils down what you eat and how you eat. If you build your immune system and manage minerals, that’s what protects your tooth from decay,” said Dr. Steven Lin.

Bio

Dr. Steven Lin is a board-registered dentist, writer, and speaker with work published in The Sydney Morning Herald and The British Dental Journal. He has also written for MindBodyGreen and About.com and given talks as part of the TEDx program.

Trained at USYD with a background in biomedical science, he is a passionate whole-health advocate, focusing on the link between nutrition and dental health. His mission is to prevent dental diseases instead of treating them.

Dr. Lin’s Dental Nutrition course is PACE accredited (AGD Council) for continuing education. He has trained healthcare professionals in Australia and UK. He also teaches general health practitioners about the mouth-body connection.

In January 2018, his book The Dental Diet will be released in the US, UK, Australia, and Germany. The Dental Diet is a journey of ancestral medicine, the human microbiome, and epigenetics. It explains the foods for healthy teeth based on the Weston A Price Diet – the inspiration for Dr. Lin’s work.

Why Weight Loss Doesn't Work

http://learntruehealth.com/weight-loss-does-not-work/

 

The Psychology Of Fat Loss  

Many women have searched far and wide for the perfect diet. And while some were successful at first, most women fail to maintain their weight. Well, you guys are in for a treat today. Because my guest, Jason Seib, has unlocked the real secret to fat loss. Read on to find out how to achieve fat loss for life!  

Lifestyle Change  

Jason Seib is an author and speaker who specializes in the Psychology of Fat Loss. Discovering his calling in his late teens, Jason Seib revealed that he was initially in a bad place around the age of 19. Because of that, he decided to have a lifestyle change and moved to a different state.   

Embracing a new life in a new environment, Jason Seib’s life took a 360-degree turn when he met a person who taught him how to work out. Consequently, that triggered his fascination on what exactly makes the body lose fat. That fascination eventually led him to work with people from all walks of life.   

Conventional Wisdom About Fat Loss  

Jason Seib says nobody tries to figure out two sides of the equation. Women are constantly trying to change the way their body looks. They think changing how their body looks ultimately solves the problem. 

But who can blame them? Modern society has influenced women to believe that they would only be more valued once they change their looks.  They think people would respond to them more favorably and differently.    

“That is garbage. What happens when you lose weight is that people just notice you lost weight,” said Jason Seib. “It is wrong to think that you will be loved only if you look better.”

Jason Seib also says that we are programmed to be what we are. Through his work, he helps people to understand and likewise assist them to make these changes.   

The Truth Behind Fat Loss  

But rather than just focusing on what constitutes a proper fat loss diet, Jason Seib chose to delve deeper into understanding the psychology of fat loss. Another reason was that he got frustrated with so many wrong notions about fat loss.   

“Nobody was talking about what it takes psychologically for people to be able to make these lifestyle changes,” said Jason Seib. “No one was able to answer why it is hard to lose weight and why do we suffer from cravings.”  

According to Jason Seib, most people find it hard to stay on a diet because it is too difficult to follow long-term. With all the daily responsibilities we have, it is too much of a hassle to measure everything we eat for the rest of our life.   

When we find a diet plan too cumbersome, Jason Seib says that’s when we start to lose the motivation to stay on a diet. We also tend to stop the diet whenever our weight loss plateaus.  

Meditation For Fat Loss  

Do you know that meditation plays a big part in fat loss? Apparently, emotions affect the way we eat and what we eat. This is because men and women alike usually turn to food for comfort whenever we are stressed or emotional.

“Through meditation and increasing mindfulness, we also apply levels of physical changes to our lifestyle,” explains Jason Seib. “Meditation is about being with your emotions, not stomping them out or bending them to your will.”   

Jason Seib adds that having a list of rules of what to eat and exercise will be pointless if we don’t look into the psychological aspect of fat loss. Hence, Jason Seib’s meditation method focuses on breathing properly while allowing our mind to wander.   

“As soon as you realize your mind is wandering, there is a moment of mindfulness when you pull it back to your breath,” said Jason Seib.

Developing AltShift  

Jason Seib noticed that people quickly fall off the fat loss bandwagon. Hence, he saw the need to create a diet plan that would motivate people to stick to the program. Other than focusing on food, AltShift seeks to correct the conventional wisdom about fat loss.  

“I created a diet called AltShift, which is effective in losing weight,” said Jason Seib. “We figure out what kind of person succeeds in becoming a better version of themselves regardless of protocol.”  

According to Jason Seib, AltShift was developed through trial and error. Initially trying it out on his wife Sheryl, he started promoting the program to other people. AltShift is actually a slow evolution of a lot of years looking at data, and the results were astonishing!  

Books By Jason Seib  

Aside from his AltShift podcast and webinars, Jason Seib has several books aimed to help you keep off the weight long-term. His books, AltShift – Lasting Fat Loss at Last, Body Beliefs, AltShift Lift, Altshift Dish and AltShift Food List contain a wealth of information to guide you step-by-step. Links to his books are available on his official website.  

Jason Seib is the creator of the popular AltShift Diet, the author of The Paleo Coach, co-host of the popular AltShift Podcast, founder and co-owner of AltShift Fitness and Fat Loss, a successful small gym in the Portland, Oregon area.  

Jason Seib speaks on the subject of fat loss regularly, delivering his Sustainable Fat Loss Seminar around the US.  His passion is guiding normal people to extraordinary levels of health and fitness.   

Marrying his extensive knowledge of fitness and nutrition with his love of psychology, Jason Seib has built his career by helping thousands of people change their perspective and find a healthy, sustainable path to their goals.

Feminine Sensuality And Sexuality

http://learntruehealth.com/feminine-sensuality-and-sexuality/

Passion As Prayer: Rediscovering Feminine Sensuality and Sexuality

Over the years, women have become stronger and capable of multi-tasking. But living in this fast-paced world can leave us feeling burned out. If you’re looking for ways to reconnect with your feminine nature and recharge your sensuality and sexuality, look no further. My guest, Deonesea La Fey, is here to help you regain your inner radiance.

Getting Past A Trauma

Surviving several years of sexual molestation as a child, Deonesea La Fey realized in her early 20s that something was amiss back in those years. Hence, she went through several years of actually working on that trauma. And just like a Phoenix, Deonesea La Fey rose from the ashes.

“A part of my healing was that I already knew I was missing something. That empty feeling was from my early sexual experiences with boys and young men,” said Deonesea La Fey.

However, during her healing process, Deonesea La Fey encountered Tantra and Tantric teaching. Hence, she started to understand how her body locked the trauma in the tissues of her vagina, womb, and belly.

As Deonesea La Fey slowly found her path to healing, she likewise found her calling to help other women. Following her heart, she has been helping women find their spirituality and sexuality for a decade now.

Your Body Is A Temple

Deonesea La Fey’s work is centered on women’s spirituality and shifting their belief system to realize that our body is our temple. And because it is the “house” for our spirit, we must understand how to keep it whole.

Apparently, it is when we are complete, that we would know more how to give and likewise to receive. Deonesea La Fey says we become whole only when we understand our authentic inner self.

“When I reject some parts of myself or hate myself, I’m saying to Creator, ‘You didn’t do a good job here,'” explains Deonesea La Fey. “Whereas if I embrace my whole being, I can experience so much love and appreciation for this body temple and all of its functions. I can become the source of my pleasure.”

Channeling Your Inner Self

True beauty radiates from within. But how do we achieve that? What is the essence of femininity? Deonesea La Fey helps women find the answers by helping them understand the dynamic of finding their inner selves through their sensual and sexual energies.

Apparently, learning how to breathe properly is an excellent way to tap our sensual and sexual energies. According to Deonesea La Fey, being able to do so not only taps our sexual and sensual energies but it also shifts our place in consciousness to realize that our senses are meant to give us the experiences of this life with joy.

“Breathing techniques help that energy move. Breathing is a major access point to our sensations, whereas the belly is our center power and creative center,” Deonesea La Fey explains. “It is our sense of how we relate to others and our access to power.”

War Between The Sexes

Society has long integrated into our thoughts that men and women can’t entirely get along because our characteristics are poles apart. But in reality, women do have masculine traits, just as men have feminine qualities as well.

The essence of femininity is about getting softer and vulnerable. It is about finding power in vulnerability. In fact, Deonesea La Fey says women start building their feminine energy, hence becoming radiant and magnetizing to men. In effect, it gives men the opportunity to be masculine when they relate to a woman.

“All of that fighting disconnects us from our hearts and disconnects from the deeper, genuine needs of our beingness,” said Deonesea La Fey. “There are a lot of ways that both men and women can embody feminine and masculine traits. It’s all about recognizing what our differences are.”

A man’s sexuality is often related to fire. Hence, Deonesea La Fey says that a man’s ‘fire’ starts in his loins and grows up into his heart. A woman’s arousal, on the other hand, starts from her mind and trickles down to her loins. When fire and water meet, it forms a steam. Hence, it’s alchemy.

Success Stories

One of the biggest things Deonesea La Fey does with women is successfully developing their movement, particularly pelvic movement. She describes it as something like belly dancing but learning it in an organic way of moving. Deonesea La Fey says this helps women stir up the energy and get them circulating.

Deonesea La Fey apparently has taught numerous workshops using this particular form of movement in the West Coast here in the United States. She likewise has managed to teach the same workshops in other parts of the world as well.

Recalling one woman who dealt with a past trauma, Deonesea La Fey found the opportunity to remind the woman that she still had a choice. The woman was able to move the fear out and eventually found inner peace.

Sensuality, Sexuality, And Tantra

Deonesea La Fey has noticed that majority of the women she tried to help didn’t know how to show or identify the real essence of sensuality. That goes the same for knowing what embodies Tantra, which is commonly but incorrectly associated with sex.

“Tantra is taken out of context in our culture. It means different things to different people,” Deonesea La Fey said. “There are different styles, different schools and different lineages of Tantra.”

In fact, Deonesea La Fey incorporates some tantric practices that coordinate the breath waves with movement. Especially with women who have suffered from trauma, Deonesea La Fey usually recommends tantric massages.

Understanding Your Yoni

You would be surprised how so many women in the modern society remain uncomfortable in talking about their vagina. On the contrary, it is very much a revered topic in the Hindu culture. For the Hindus, the vagina or ‘yoni,’ is a symbol of divine procreative energy.

Deonesea La Fey explains that inside a woman’s vagina, there are different levels of spongy tissue. Knowing how to massage it in a certain way apparently, helps maintain our blood circulation. It also connects us to our Kundalini or our primal energy located at the base of our spine.

“Ultimately, we want our Tantric energy to be fully spread throughout our bodies, not localized and centralized in only one place. And that’s where breathing properly can come in,” Deonesea La Fey said.

Generating Feminine Radiance

Ever wonder how some women seem to look beautiful all the time? There’s that certain glow from within that radiates sensuality, sexuality, peace, and happiness.

“When we start generating, cultivating and living with feminine radiance, we light up. We become radiant, and that joy draws things to it,” said Deonesea La Fey.

She adds that we become a magnetic energy if we just learn to generate feminine radiance. That magnetism, in effect, brings us what we truly desire.

Exercises To Develop Feminine Radiance

In earth-based spirituality, Deonesea La Fey says we think a lot about things with regards to the elements. A women’s sensuality is often considered earthy and our sacral or second chakra is essentially about working our pelvis.

Here is an essential exercise recommended by Deonesea La Fey:

1. Close your eyes and be aware of your breathing.
2. Get in touch with your belly rising on inhale and falling on exhale. Take deep breaths. Drop your attention down to your belly.
3. Take deeper breaths and breathe directly to the pelvic bone, down to your labia and yoni. Breathe into that space and imagine your perineum, bottom and yoni all make the bottom side of the bowl.
4. Imagine the bowl filling wth water and see that water slowly filling in.
5. Feel the water filling your pelvic bowl from your roots out to your hips, hip bones, and womb space. Continue to visualize until your pelvic bowl is filled with water.
6. Imagine yourself connecting your breath with water. Continue to breathe deeply.
7. Imagine using your breath to encourage water to walk up to your backside.
8. Let the water come up into your mind, across your mind and brows.
9. Allow the current of water to cross like a mist in front of your body. Let it flow naturally to your front side. Feel the nurture of this water.
10. Then allow all that water to settle down back into your pelvic bowl, then to the belly, hip bones and to the sacrum.
11. Breathe in and out. Wriggle your fingers and toes before opening your eyes.

Like anything that is new and foreign to us, it takes a while to get used to the exercise. However, Deonesea La Fey promises that the natural element of feminine energy is overwhelmingly soothing once we get used to doing this exercise.

“Our body has so much wisdom and knowledge. It has so much to offer,” said Deonesea La Fey.

Deonesea La Fey is a Queen Visionary and founder of Passion as Prayer. She is a sensuality coach, movement facilitator and Ordained Priestess who is intensely trained and experienced in sensuality and embodiment practices, ecstatic dance forms, and initiatory rites.

Deonesea La Fey supports women to release themselves from past experiences. She also helps women inhibit their eroticism so that they can find their pathways to ecstasy. Her work is based on the knowledge that our sensuality and sexuality can be a powerful source of creativity, passion, and joy.

In addition to holding her private coaching practice, Deonesea La Fey leads women’s empowerment workshops and sensuality retreats at home and abroad.

Eliminating Wheat and Grains For Better Health  

http://learntruehealth.com/eliminating-wheat-and-grains/

I’m sure you have heard how grains and sugar are bad for our health. But did you know that wheat is the most dominant and the worst of all grains in particular? Today’s guest, Dr. William Davis, will expound on all the reasons why we should start eliminating wheat and other grains from our diet.   

Starting His Crusade  

Dr. Davis is a Cardiologist, Author and Health Crusader. His campaign on eliminating wheat and grains started after his mother died of sudden cardiac arrest.   

Apparently, so many people have suffered from silent heart disease. It was worse 20 years ago. The only tools we had available for treatment then, were having a low-fat diet and taking Statin drugs.   

With the existing medical procedures back then, it failed to prevent the health condition of Dr. Davis’ mother from worsening. Hence, the tragedy jump-started Dr. Davis’ long research on what kind of food makes us sick, as well as exposing the real agenda of pharmaceutical companies.  

The Truth About Cholesterol  

“Cholesterol is more like an innocent bystander in this process. But it makes a lot of money for the pharmaceutical industry,” Dr. Davis boldly declared.  

Surprising, right? There have been numerous studies over the recent years, saying LDL-cholesterol is not as bad as people think.  But because pharmaceutical companies rake in so much profits, they make it appear that cholesterol primarily causes heart disease and cardiovascular mortality.   

“They say heart disease is caused by cholesterol. But it’s not entirely accurate. It is simply a crude marker for the particles that cause heart disease,” explained Dr. Davis.

Furthermore, Dr. Davis says that LDL-cholesterol is such a crude, unreliable value. He says this is because LDL-cholesterol levels assume that we all eat the same. It assumes that we all have the same triglycerides value. In other words, it makes many crude assumptions that are simply not true.   

The Truth About Wheat  

And why should we drop all grains and sugar? How bad is it? Dr. Davis explains that with grains, in particular, it exerts all sorts of toxic effects in our gastrointestinal tract.   

“Grains also gets into the blood stream. And because grains are highly-inflammatory, many people have an adverse reaction to wheat germ and gluten,” Dr. Davis revealed.  

Furthermore, Dr. Davis clarifies that people mistakenly think that gluten is the primary problem. Apparently, it is just one factor in a long list of many other toxic components in grains. Dr. Davis believes that people will start eliminating wheat and avoid grains altogether, once they understand how toxic it can be to our health.  

Dr. Davis cannot stress this enough — Grains cause many chronic diseases. Wheat causes inflammatory edema. And what does this inflammation mean? Apparently, inflammation underlies a lot of diseases like cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disease, dementia, and heartburn.  

Personally, I agree with what Dr. Davis said. I had previously had type 2 diabetes but I was able to reverse it ever since I followed a gluten-free, grain-free diet. Finally being able to get rid of chronic adrenal fatigue, I was likewise able to lose 25 pounds of water weight.  

Foods To Avoid  

There is an extensive list of sugary foods and grains that have proven to be detrimental to our health. However, topping Dr. Davis’ list of foods to avoid are the ones that raise blood sugar. These foods are cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca, starch and potato flour.   

Blood sugar levels are measured through a glycemic index chart. And according to Dr. Davis, cornstarch has the highest glycemic index at 100. This index level means it is equivalent to pure glucose, higher than any other food known to man!  

Apart from that, cornstarch can cause cataract and hypertension, as well as develop high blood sugar and high insulin. Research also shows that cornstarch triggers the growth of inflammatory fat around our organs, increases heart disease risk, type 2 diabetes, dementia, and cancer.   

Foods To Eat  

Now that you know more or less what foods to avoid, Dr. Davis however, cautions us on eating the foods that we think are healthy for us.  According to Dr. Davis, eating whole foods is advisable. However, we must avoid eating the seeds of grasses because that’s what grains are.   

Other recommended foods to include in our diet are raw nuts, healthy oils, grass-fed meats, real cultured cheeses, and vegetables except for potatoes. Much as fruits are healthier than candies, Dr. Davis suggests limiting fruit intake especially bananas, mangoes, and grapes.  

Genetic History  

You may wonder why Dr. Davis is adamant in telling people to avoid eating the seeds of grasses. Well, Dr. Davis explains that this is because humans do not have the digestive apparatus to break down the components of grasses.   

And did you know that the kind of wheat we know today is different from the wheat that is specified in the Bible? Yes, it’s true that even wheat has evolved over time!  

“The genetic distance between the wheat of today and the wheat of the Bible is vast,” said Dr. Davis. “Regardless of race, we all have 46 chromosomes. Modern wheat has 42 chromosomes. Wheat specified in the Bible has 28 chromosomes, and the predecessor of the wheat mentioned in the Bible has 14.”  

Furthermore, Dr. Davis said that people developing tooth decay in the ancient times were very rare despite having no toothpaste. It was only when grain was prevalent in people’s diets, that bone diseases and iron deficiencies became common health complaints aside from tooth decay.  

“Grain is something you eat to survive another few weeks but pay a long-term health price,” concludes Dr. Davis.  

And just like the politics behind pharmaceutical companies and their aggressive campaign for drugs, it’s all about the money. There is simply so much money to be profited from promoting products made from grains or sugar.  

Coping With Wheat Withdrawal  

First of all, Dr. Davis stresses the need to look deeper into analyzing what we eat. It is important to know if the food we eat has grain components.   

Once we are aware of what not to eat, the next big challenge is how to cope with the withdrawal symptoms once you have started eliminating wheat and other grains. People often report having little energy, but there are ways to counter the withdrawal symptoms. 

Dr. Davis strongly advises avoiding Statin drugs. In place of that, taking supplements like iodine, omega-3 fatty acids and magnesium help get your body on the right track. In addition to that, taking probiotics also addresses constipation, as well as the feeling of being bloated.  

Another useful strategy is to consume salt to compensate for salt loss whenever we urinate. Last but not the least, remember to hydrate since eliminating wheat involves fluid loss.   

Undoctored  

Thinking of how to go about eliminating wheat and grains from your diet for real? Dr. Davis’ website is a gold mine of information!   

Aside from having links to his books, recipes and success stories, you can also access Dr. Davis’ blog as well as his Undoctored Inner Circle. Undoctored is a very comprehensive program that can empower you to live a life free from drugs and doctors.  

Dr. William Davis is a Cardiologist and a New York Times #1 Best Selling Author. He is also the Medical Director and Founder of the Wheat Belly Lifestyle Institute, as well as the Cureality Program.

The Happiness Formula

http://learntruehealth.com/happiness-formula/

All of us have varied definitions of happiness. Some find it in material things, and others find it in relationships. But do you know that there is a formula to be happy? My guest, Michael Weinberger will show us an amazing way to how to truly be happy through his Happiness Formula.

The Dark Years

Life wasn't always a bowl of cherries for Weinberger. Having been diagnosed in 1994 with bipolar disorder at the age of 17, Weinberger went through some troublesome years at school, which dragged on until he got married and started his career.

However, it didn't stop there. Apparently, Weinberger's biggest struggle was his weight. When he was 32 years old, he reached a shallow point in his life. Nothing seemed to go well, and that led him to the brink of suicide.

Weinberger eventually was able to pick up the pieces of his life. He joined programs that helped him manage his weight as well as change his negative thoughts and emotions into positive ones.

A Plan For Living

Once Weinberger got back on track, that's when he decided to create A Plan For Living. He says he initially created it out of necessity to manage his own life and that others could benefit from it as well.

A Plan For Living app focuses on gratitude, spirituality, and mindfulness. It also deals with impulse control, anxiety, fear, worry, and frustration. According to Weinberger, this tool is a saving grace for anyone who has been through the worst challenges in life.

Learning How To Commit

Before embarking on anything, commitment is necessary. Without commitment, nothing would prosper. Your inner self must be willing to get out of your comfort zone to see results.

Citing himself as an example, Weinberger said he needed to commit himself to lose weight. Thirty-nine weeks ago, he decided to commit to one push up or one crunch a day for a week.

Much as Weinberger wanted to stick to his commitment, he initially beat himself up and felt sorry for himself. However, Weinberger rewired himself slowly. Not wanting to burn himself out, he gradually got himself on track.

"In my heart, I was interested in having a life, but I wasn't committed to having a life. I was living with anxiety, fear and worry," Weinberger said.

The Happiness Formula

So what is the Happiness Formula? According to Weinberger, it is a combination of gratitude, spirituality, and mindfulness. Once we achieve these, we could then be more aware of what we are feeling.

And once we are aware of what we are feeling, we learn to understand that the Happiness Formula is not at all complicated. It is how we react to whatever problems or challenges we face.

The Importance Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness means that you are in tune to what causes your problems. Consequently, it gives you the power to control your own life. That is why mindfulness is a major component of the Happiness Formula.

Weinberger says that we have five primary emotions: anger, fear, grief, joy, and worry. Hence, knowing how to process these emotions empower us to act appropriately rather than react on impulse and regret it later.

Creating A Gratitude List

I'm sure all of you have heard that being grateful for the simplest things matters in a big way. Weinberger believes that the victim mentality destroys people. Hence, the importance of creating a gratitude list is an essential component of the Happiness Formula.

While we can mentally note the list of things we are grateful for, being able to write it down allows us to delve into why we are thankful for the things that we choose to write down.

A gratitude list can empower us to face challenges, move forward and become more aware of ourselves. Once we become aware of ourselves, our demands become more realistic. When we become practical, the negative self-talk diminishes.

"The focus is on awareness. Make it a conscious decision and work on your communication skills with people," said Weinberger. "I think positively so when negative things happen; I'm ok with it."

Looking Ahead

We've all heard the cliche that the best way to get over a mistake is to learn the lesson and move forward. It seems broad and easier said than done, but Weinberger's A Plan For Living app aims to guide you through that.

The results won't happen overnight, but it's all about taking it one step at a time and celebrating the little victories along the way. It's all about the journey. Because ultimately, happiness is a choice.

"My mission is to see people struggle with this because I used to. I believed that the universe was going to take care of me. It had impacted every relationship I had," said Weinberger.

Michael Weinberger is a dynamic and inspiring speaker frequently asked to speak on topics including Mindfulness, Coping with Mental Illness and Addiction.

He was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder in 1994 and has learned how to not only cope but to thrive while living with his illness.

Michael teaches individuals how to adjust their mindset to be mindful and grateful for everything their life! He is the founder and creator of APlanForLiving.com, a digital mindfulness manager, and wellness platform.

Everyone has problems, and Michael's approach helps people apply gratitude, spirituality, and mindfulness to their daily lives. A grateful heart is a happy heart!

Breathing Techniques

http://learntruehealth.com/breathing-techniques/

 

Learning The Right Breathing Techniques

We all know that we need to breathe to live. But are you aware that most of us do not know how to breathe properly? Well, you're in luck today because I got Dr. Belisa Vranich, a breathing expert who will teach us proper breathing techniques that have significant health benefits.

Dr. Vranich's Backstory

Dr. Belisa Vranich was a clinical psychologist for 20 years before she got into the business of teaching people proper breathing techniques. She likewise has an extensive background experience in psychometric testing, administering IQ tests as well as neuro psychological evaluations.

Then up until a decade ago, Dr. Vranich started going through a lot of stress. After trying out yoga, she liked the breathing techniques and decided to study more on the subject. After gaining knowledge and experience, Dr. Vranich eventually decided to offer a program called The Breathing Class.

The Breathing Class

We all say breathing is important, but most people often don't know how. Our lack of knowledge of what are the right breathing techniques affects all our health and wellness in every way.

Upon signing up for the program, clients are initially made to undergo a functional breathing test. This test can show how breathing patterns affect people physically and mentally.

Consequently, The Breathing Class is a lung workout and tailor-made for each client. Dr. Vranich teaches breathing techniques that can either calm the person or make them more alert. Part of the process includes strengthening the breathing muscles, exercising the diaphragm and promote meditation habits as well.

"I initially didn't think I'd be teaching meditation. But my class is a breath-centered meditation," said Dr. Vranich. "You can get into a trans-meditative state by breathing well."

Who Her Clients Are

Dr. Vranich says her clients are from all walks of life. From athletes to corporate executives, each has their program tailor-made for their needs. Based on her experience, corporate people aim to be more happy and productive.

Dr. Vranich likewise singles out golfers. According to her, golfers are the only ones with no culture of breathing. Their heart rate is the lowest, and their body is the quietest.

Did you know that even SWAT teams and sharp shooters need proper breathing techniques? Surprisingly, a lot of Vranich's clients are from the military.

"When I'm working with military and law enforcement, they want specific things," shares Dr. Vranich. "Most of them want better endurance and the ability to cope with stress."

Aside from that, they require breathing techniques that can keep them alert for hours. And because the nature of their job is stressful, they need techniques to help them sleep better and deal with pain as well.

It is interesting to note that Dr. Vranich applies the 4462 method. According to her, it is called the tactical breath and adapted from the military. Breath counts are inhaling on 4, hold on 4, exhaling on 6 and hold on 2.

Dr. Vranich likewise helps clients who were initially diagnosed with asthma. According to her, asthma is the disease of the exhale. After doing a battery of tests on the client, Dr. Vranich can now determine how weak their respiratory muscles are.

Benefits From Proper Breathing

Dr. Vranich's primary goal in offering The Breathing Class to people is to get them off medication. Hence, it thrills her when her clients eventually can either lessen their medication or completely get off drugs.

Dr. Vranich also shares that most of her clients attest that their sleeping patterns have improved significantly after undergoing her breathing class program. A lot of them likewise have reported that they were able to get rid of their acid reflux.

Causes of Breathing The Wrong Way

There are many reasons why people do not breathe correctly. Sometimes, it may be due to physical or mental stress. Dr. Vranich also says one of the primary causes is also anxiety.

"Anxiety can cause you to breathe in a shallow manner and vice versa. The way you're breathing supports that anxious state," explains Dr. Vranich. "When you breathe with your shoulders, your heart rate, blood pressure, and cortisol goes up while your immune system goes down."

Another cause of improper breathing is due to digestive problems. Hence, Dr. Vranich stresses the importance of changing the way you eat.

"Most people with digestive problems aggravate their condition because they do not use their diaphragm to breathe," Dr. Vranich said. "The digestive system doesn't have the support to do the right thing."

Consequently, once we learn how to use our diaphragm, our digestive system significantly improves. Furthermore, it also gets rid of inflammation in our body.

Dealing With Chronic Pain

Vranich also credits John Sarno's Healing Back Pain book. According to Dr. Vranich, the book gave her a lot of insights on how breathing and chronic pain are linked together.

Sarno focused more on the emotional causes of back pain. However, he affirmed that there is less back pain if we know how to breathe with our diaphragm.

Common Myths and Mistakes In Breathing

Vranich enumerates the common situations wherein we fail to breathe properly:

• Failure to move the middle of our body leads our breath to go on top of the body to our shoulders and clavicles.

• We are often emotionally guarded. Hence, we fail to breathe from our diaphragm.

• Bracing the belly does not make our abs strong. Our core will be much more robust if we expand on the inhale and exhale by squeezing on those muscles.

• A six-pack is a beautiful muscle. However, it is not a good muscle because it acts as a muscular corset. It stops us from getting a deep inhale. Hence we have to work a lot in loosening those muscles.

Importance Of Breathing From The Diaphragm

If you're not using your diaphragm to breathe, your esophagus isn't getting the support it needs. Consequently, this means you will not be able to keep acid reflux at bay regardless of what you're eating.

"The diaphragm is like a secondary esophagus," Dr. Vranich said. "When you breathe with your diaphragm, you're helping your throat keep acidity down in your belly where it should be."

Basic Breathing Techniques

Here are three basic breathing techniques that Dr. Vranich says you can do:

• Standing position: Take a belly breath. Know why you are doing it and do it right. Expand your middle, sides, and back. Do this for two weeks throughout the day.

• Lying position: Lie on your back. Put books on your belly. On inhale, push the books away. On exhale, let the books fall and squeeze your body.

• Seated position: Rock forward by letting the body go and inhale. Rock back as you exhale and feel it primarily in your hips.

Dr. Belisa Vranich is a renowned clinical psychologist, public speaker, and the author of Breathe: The Simple, Revolutionary 14-Day Program to Improve your Mental and Physical Health.

As founder of The Breathing Class™, Vranich has taught and lectured nationwide on topics related to dysfunctional breathing patterns and stress.

Healing For Children With Autism And Other Disorders  

 http://learntruehealth.com/healing-autism/

Close To Her Heart  

Several medical statistics have forecasted that more children will be diagnosed with autism than cancer, AIDS and diabetes combined. In fact, my guest today, Dr. Debra Gambrell, agrees to the current statistics. According to the report, children diagnosed with autism are increasing at an alarming rate. 

Dr. Gambrell is a board certified pediatric anesthesiologist who went to Osteopathic school in Kansas City.  She likewise underwent a traditional internship at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. She also completed a pediatric anesthesia fellowship at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles in 2009. 

Autism is something close to Gambrell's heart because her son, Lucas, was diagnosed as autistic shortly after he was born. Her child's condition eventually led her to embark on extensive research on autism for the past ten years.  

Opening The Second Practice  

Apparently, there is more to autism than just medication and behavioral treatments. Gambrell shared that she had great success in healing her son three years ago. Consequently, her son Lucas is now doing well in public school.  

Because of her success in treating her son, Gambrell decided to open a second practice. The practice focuses on helping children diagnosed with autism, sensory disorders, asthma, seizures, ADHD, obesity and other chronic diseases.   

Living In A Toxic Environment  

According to Gambrell, the toxicity in our environment is rapidly increasing. Hence, this level of toxicity changed the common diseases to the diseases of neurologic origin.   

Dr. Gambrell also believes that there is more to digest in our environment. In addition to the physical things to digest, we also have to deal with increased fear, EMF and bad air quality.  

Apparently, the state of the environment that we live in is a contributing factor to a child diagnosed with autism. And because the bodies of autistic children are more physically dense, it's a long process for them to digest. Consequently, their immune system loses its inherent intelligence.  

"Anything that we don't digest is called residual undigested proteins," Gambrell explained. "And anything undigested in the body can trigger the disease. That's the current state of children today."

Anthroposophical Medicine  

Rudolf Steiner developed this branch of medicine. It aims to heal the body, soul, and spirit through health and wellness.   

"Anthroposophy is a way to know your environment. It also has to do with your thought processes and your feelings," said Gambrell. "It's a study that allows the person to be able to find a grounded center in reality."

Under anthroposophical medicine, rhythmic massage, therapeutic eurythmy, and therapeutic arts are used for healing. Among the three, rhythm plays a big part and is sub-divided into Nerve-Sense, Metabolic/Limb, and the Rhythmic force.   

Sensory Disorder  

There are 12 physical senses. Among the 12, we have five senses that we typically talk about -- hear, taste, touch, smell, see. Often, we fail to realize that we also have to have a sense of balance, movement, word.  

"We know autistic children are not able to point," shares Gambrell. "They're not able to look at something because that requires them knowing who they are and what's outside of them. That line gets blurred."  

In the case of children diagnosed with autism, some people confuse autism with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Despite that, studies conducted by the Star Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder show that at least three-quarters of autistic children have symptoms of SPD.  

However, the Star Institute also clarifies that most children who have SPD are not always diagnosed as autistic. Consequently, regardless of what the diagnosis is, both autism and SPD require medical intervention.  

Developing Consciousness  

There have been many cases that autism may be addressed through detox and natural medicine. Gambrell likens how society deals with autism to a glass ceiling that we need to shatter. She believes the capability and consciousness of the child depends on how parents handle the situation.    

"In anthroposophical medicine, the idea is that as the child grows, consciousness comes into the body," Gambrell explains. "The more toxins the child is exposed to, the less consciousness can come into the body."

Gambrell cautions that the changes might not be dramatic, but the child's growth will eventually be evident over time.  Once the child learns to use their will forces, consciousness comes into the body.  

Treating Fevers  

As Gambrell's son Lucas was being treated naturally for his autism, she recalled the time when her son developed scarlet fever. Apparently, that was the pivotal moment wherein Gambrell realized we shouldn't panic over fevers.  

According to Gambrell, fevers can be a destructive process if not managed correctly. Hence, we must use it as an opportunity to be aware and create a warm environment for the child.  

Gambrell suggests the following ways to handle the situation when your child has a fever:   

  • Encourage activity to avoid making the child feel lethargic.
  • Do not make the child eat during the hot phase of the fever.
  • Give your child warm fluids.
  • Make sure your child is peeing regularly.
  • Be aware of the patterns of the fever.
  • Listen to your instinct.
  • Keep a journal to note down your observations.

Increasing Warmth in Your Child's Environment  

Gambrell also gives these tips in making your child's environment warm. It helps boost the immune system and minimizes the risk of getting sick often:  

  1. Eat meals at the regular time everyday. 
  2. Experience morning sunlight. 
  3. Eat together and eat happily. 
  4. Dress in clothes in natural fibers. 
  5. Do not use air conditioning when you don't have to. 
  6. Eat foods that are resonating naturally with our frequency. 

How Parents Can Support A Child  

I'm sure you've heard the saying, 'Love yourself first.' It sounds selfish, but it's not. In fact, Gambrell says that the best way to support a child is for the mother and father to support themselves.   

Once you achieve self-care, you are now capable of creating a predictable rhythm for your child.  Furthermore, Gambrell says most parents blame themselves when they have a child that is born autistic. And that is wrong. It is no one's fault.  

"Look at what you need. Think of how you can warm up the environment. Think of ways how you can defragment all the chaos that is happening," encourages Gambrell. "What can the parent do is to get a rhythm. This way, you have the extra energy to deal with the meltdown of your child."  

Dr. Debra Gambrell graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine (now KUMBC), in 2003. After completing her Transitional Osteopathic Internship in Darby, PA, she completed an anesthesia residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.   

Gambrell then completed a pediatric anesthesia fellowship at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles in 2009 and remained for two years as an Assistant Professor. She is currently undergoing a 5-year Anthroposophical Medical training program in pursuit of a certification in this field. Gambrell was also a student of Dr. James Jealous, the leader in Pediatric Biodynamic Osteopathy education for physicians.   

In addition to Pediatric Osteopathy and Food Antigen Testing, Dr. Gambrell practices both adult and pediatric anesthesia throughout Sonoma County. She enjoys consulting with surgery centers to ensure the safety of the pediatric patients they treat and has been part of the Mending Kids International group in Haiti as well as Making Kids Smile with the Pediatric Dental Initiative in Windsor, CA.

Essential Oils

http://learntruehealth.com/essential-oils/

Maximizing The Benefits Of Essential Oils  

I'm sure you have heard the multiple benefits of essentials oils. From cleaning to natural medicine and detoxification, there are more than a hundred uses of essential oils. And yes, even cooking! So we're in for a treat today because my guest, Leiann King, will teach us how to use these oils properly.  

The use of essential oils dates back to the ancient times. It has proven to be beneficial because of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. However, King says we should avoid overusing it since it is a chemical.   

Getting Into Essential Oils   

King is a certified master herbalist and international certified aromatherapist. She will be getting her raw foods certification soon. Married to a farmer, she is a proud mother of...drum roll please...nine children!   

And because King didn't have any health insurance, she learned to use essential oils, especially as a natural medicine. Using essential oils for 15 years, King's pharmacy was her backyard.   

During those years, King became frustrated with the essential oils workshops and seminars she attended. It didn't leave much of a mark for her to feel a significant long-term change. Hence, this was when she started to create her blends to maximize the benefits of essential oils.   

"People don't know the vast benefits of aromatherapy. Essential oils can trigger mechanisms in your brains," said King. "It can also call back positive experiences, release negative experiences or lock in something you want to have happened."

Foundational Aromatherapy  

King's devotion eventually paid off. Aside from being an internationally certified aromatherapist, master herbalist, and certified Iridologist, she was also able to write a book.  

Co-authored with Brenda Wright, Foundational Aromatherapy is an informative guide to essential oils. The original edition has successfully sold thousands of copies and is now in its second edition.   

Readers will learn all about the simple and fun ways to use over 70 kinds of essential oils. The 250-page book is a plethora of information! Inclusive of easy-to-do recipes, the book also teaches you how to create your own blends.  

Food Zoning and Reflexology 

Some people are not aware that our body's blueprint is connected to our feet. It starts on the neck of our big toe and is correspondent to the brain and our spine. The essential oils travel through our blood stream and lead out to every organ in the body.  

King was admittedly initially clueless about this. She credits a woman named Barbara from her town. Barbara was a foot zone therapist and previously studied with a renowned herbalist, the late Dr. Raymond Christopher.   

Over time, King learned a lot about herbal plants from Barbara. In addition to that, Barbara also taught her about juicing, fasting, and sprouting as well. These methods empowered King to keep her growing family healthy the natural way.   

Favorite Essential Oils  

There are a lot of essential oils that you can buy. However, there are a handful of popular ones used for everyday ailments.  

King says that Rosemary is not just good for cooking. In fact, when she was studying for her degree, she often used Rosemary. When used topically, Rosemary can also be used to soothe muscles.  

King also shares that over the years, she usually uses Peppermint to treat colds. However, she cautions using Peppermint to a 2-year old and stresses the use of a dilution chart. Furthermore, Peppermint must not be given to elderly persons with high blood pressure.     

Peppermint actually has a broad range of medicinal applications.  Beneficial for men suffering from erectile dysfunction, it can be used as a personal lube for females as well.   

"An essential oil must be diluted with a carrier oil like olive, coconut, jojoba, grapeseed, lotion, cream or water," King explains. "Knowing who will use it and where in the body are they putting it maximizes the benefits of essential oils."  

Another popular essential oil is Dill. Almost identical to Caraway seed oil, it has a high carvone content and used to treat colic and gas pain.  

Did you know that essential oils can be used to treat drug addiction? Surprisingly, yes! According to King, using Rosemary, Lemon and Peppermint in proper doses is recommended. However, a Rosemary and Lemon combination will also work just fine.  

Essential Oils For Food  

A famous chicken recipe uses Rosemary and Lemon. Rosemary and Thyme are likewise a favorite choice of herbs when grilling steaks.   

However, King cautions on using essential oils because some people tend to overdo it. Make sure the essential oils you use for cooking is organic, ethically-farmed and not made with concentrated pesticides.  

"Internal usage approval by the FDA has nothing to do with the quality. When an essential oil is approved to take internally, all that means is that the bottle was packaged in a food-approved facility," said King.  

King further explains that because essential oils are chemicals, our liver breaks down chemicals. One must undergo a full aromatherapy consultation with a certified clinical aromatherapist before taking essential oils internally.  

Aromatic Living Subscription  

Unfortunately, many companies are just after the business profits rather than strictly implementing safe essential oil usage. This is one of the reasons why King is passionate about reaching out to people.   

Hence, King developed Aromatic Living where according to her, is a place where the good life happens! Signing up for this subscription is awesome.  You'll get to learn from using essential oils in all areas. Furthermore, you'll get to participate in webinars and watch King's archived videos.   

Aside from the delicious food recipes, you'll also get to learn how you can choose oils based on the color of your eye. Aptly called the Aromatic iridology, the program is exclusive to King.   

Under this program, one can learn to use spiritual practices from Native American Iridology in harmony with using essential oils. Now, that's fun!  

Leiann King is a powerful motivator. She has mentored and trained thousands of individuals and families to have excellent health, relationships, and businesses. Leiann is also a farmer's wife and mother of nine.   

King is a Certified Master Herbalist, Certified Iridologist, raw food enthusiast and an Internationally Certified Aromatherapist. She is a professional member of both NAHA and AIA (serving as Utah state representative for AIA) and registered with the Aromatherapy Council. King also shares her knowledge as owner and founder of Applied Aromatic Institute, an online aromatherapy certification school.
