Tracee's course is called KetoPause "no men allowed"and is starting in January!

The Ketogenic Diet

http://learntruehealth.com/the-ketogenic-diet/

The Ketogenic diet has been reaping positive feedbacks in recent years. And for an excellent reason, too! So many lives have changed with the ketogenic diet. But did you know it can also be highly beneficial to women in their 40s? According to my guest, Holistic Health Coach Tracee Gluhaich, the effects of ketogenic diet are amazing!

Early Years

Tracee Gluhaich shares that her growing up years didn’t revolve around a healthy diet. She said her parents were both unhealthy and not being able to eat right played a huge factor.

Since Tracee Gluhaich was too young to know any better, she struggled with weight issues and remembered trying out several diets. What made it worse is the fact that she had two close friends who were skinny. According to Tracee Gluhaich, it only made her feel insecure about her weight.

Getting Older

Tracee Gluhaich may have had weight issues earlier in life, but she did try to rectify that by exercising. Although she always exercised, her eating habits remained to be a problem. Hence, the weight issues prevailed until she got married and had kids.

As her kids were growing up, Tracee Gluhaich says they were primarily raised on an American diet. Fearful that they would have the same struggles she had growing up, Tracee Gluhaich decided to shape up and fix her diet. 

Gaining Weight

Tracee Gluhaich says that she regrets it every time she looks back at all the years of having unhealthy eating habits. Even if she loved working out, she was alarmed how she gained weight during menopause.

Her weight gain caused Tracee Gluhaich to evaluate the best steps to take. She, later on, discovered that having hormone implants was the reason behind her weight gain of 13 lbs. in three weeks.

Discovering Ketogenic Diet

Moving on forward and achieving optimal health, Tracee Gluhaich later made it her mission to educate people on the proper nutrition. After discovering the ketogenic diet and combining it with a food sensitivity testing, she finally found herself on the proper path to healing.

“We need to feed our body proper nutrients so when our cells renew and divide every minute of every hour, they thrive instead of being sick,” said Tracee Gluhaich.

A typical day for Tracee Gluhaich would be drinking a large glass of water with lemon and salt upon waking up. The water would replace the electrolytes in her body. Having coffee before hitting the gym in the morning, she manages to ward off the urge to snack until lunchtime.

Lunch would usually consist of vegetable, protein, and oil. For dinner, Tracee Gluhaich would choose something that is high fat, moderate protein, and low carb.

“I don’t like to call ketogenic a diet. It’s a lifestyle. I’m into quality over quantity. I’m into grass-fed meat, fresh farm eggs and the whole food way of healthy eating,” Tracee Gluhaich revealed.

How To Start A Ketogenic Diet

First of all, Tracee Gluhaich coaches her clients into focusing on the mindset by setting some goals. Nutrition comes in second. The third step is the physical component. Tracee Gluhaich has, in fact, designed a tested and proven program combining balance, lifting weights, cardio, yoga, stretching and mindfulness.

“People need to see what’s possible. When they want to throw in the towel, it is beneficial that they read their goals daily,” shares Tracee Gluhaich. “People usually give up, and I specifically want to empower middle-aged women that it is possible to get through the program.” 

Getting Into The Right Mindset

To help you visualize your goals, Tracee Gluhaich advises people to write a story to themselves. What you write must contain the answers to what you want in your life right now that you can’t currently do.

As for people who want to lose weight, Tracee Gluhaich says that weight loss is excellent. However, you must be able to identify can weight loss give you that you don’t currently have.

According to Tracee Gluhaich, people put so much emphasis on the number on the scale. They fail to focus on how their new body is going to change their lives and improve the quality of every day.

“Read your vision statement. Your mind doesn’t know the difference between imagination and reality,” advises Tracee Gluhaich. “And if you read it every morning when you get up, it will set your path in motion for good habits that day. If you read it every night before you go to bed, it will embed into your subconscious mind and become a part of who you are.”

Sugar Addiction

A significant factor in weight issues is the addiction to sugar. For women, in particular, we crave sweets, especially around our period. And trying to eliminate sugar from your diet entirely is indeed not an easy thing to do.

Tracee Gluhaich says that we become so overwhelmed by the feeling whenever we eat sweets. In reality, the fructose in the food overrides our brain into tricking us.

“Sugar is a physiological response. People think it’s willpower. To the human liver, alcohol and sugar are the same things,” explains Tracee Gluhaich. 

Motivating People

Tracee Gluhaich says she motivates people by showing examples of people who have succeeded and benefitted from her program. Hopefully, it helps new clients realize that it is possible to achieve the benefits of a ketogenic diet.

The second strategy is helping clients visualize how they see themselves in the near future. From here, she helps them to eat healthily, stay positive and build strength.

KetoPause: No Men Allowed

Tracee Gluhaich is set to launch her course for women in their 40s and beyond on January 2, 2018. The course would cover all the intimate issues surrounding menopause and empower women to change their path to better health.

The course aims to help women develop better mental clarity, reduce inflammation in the body among others. And because a sense of community is essential, clients would get the chance to interact with other women as well.

High Energy Girl Website

Can’t get enough of Tracee Gluhaich? Well, do check out her fantastic website. From the site, you’ll get a free download to a cheat sheet on how to cope with menopause. There are also links to her podcast as well as her blog and e-book, so go ahead and check it out.

Tracee Gluhaich is a Holistic Health Coach and Personal Trainer in California. She has been married for 27 years and lives on a small organic farm where she raised her three sons.

After struggling with weight and the dieting roller coaster her whole life, Tracee Gluhaich has switched her focus to being healthy, not skinny, looking at longevity and true health, not a number on the scale.

Her passion is educating and inspiring women, in their middle years, to take their health seriously, by following a ketogenic diet, moving their body, and enjoying self-care.

To get the supplements Dr. Jay spoke of:
http://learntruehealth.com/cleanse  -  parasite and detox supplements

5 Steps to Restoring Health Protocol: Helping those who haven't been helped with Lyme Disease, Thyroid Problems, Adrenal Fatigue, Heavy Metal Toxicity, Digestive Issues, and More!

How to Fix Lyme Disease: 3 Secrets to Improve Any Lyme Disease Treatment

http://amzn.to/2BuKmrW 

www.DrJayDavidson.com - coach clients virtually

 

Parasites And Lyme Disease 

http://learntruehealth.com/lyme-disease

Parasites live in different areas of our body.  Even the healthiest person is prone to getting parasites. In fact, Lyme disease and heavy metal toxicity are correlated to parasites. Much as we can’t completely get rid of parasites, my guest, Dr. Jay Davidson will teach us how to do a parasite cleanse and why it is essential to do so.   

Sick Wife  

Dr. Jay Davidson shares that it was his wife who was sick with Lyme disease at the age of 7. She was given medication since she had many other health issues until she was 18 years old. 

They met in college when they both went to chiropractic school. Dr. Jay Davidson’s wife was still struggling with Lyme disease until their daughter was born while he had massive parasite issues. Medications didn’t do much, so they both sought out natural alternatives.   

“Lyme disease has several strains. It is a bacteria and loves to drill into tissues and joints. Because it does not necessarily flow into the bloodstream, it is often undetected,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.  

He adds,”Lyme disease has an interesting defense mechanism. Upon taking antibiotics, it can change forms. When it develops into a cyst, it becomes resistant to the antibiotic. It also has an autoimmune effect.”  

Causes of Lyme Disease  

Medical literature lists the cause of Lyme disease is commonly from infected black-legged ticks. The same ticks can also transmit diseases to animals.   

According to Dr. Jay Davidson, because the ticks are so small, the bites are hardly noticeable. The insect’s saliva has an anesthetic-like substance. That is why one would initially not feel the bite.   

Curing Lyme Disease  

Symptoms of Lyme can be anything from flu, aches, and fatigue. Severe symptoms include chronic pain, nerve system problems, and even Bell’s palsy. Other symptoms include inflammation of the eyes and liver.  

However, Lyme disease can be cured when it is detected early. Dr. Jay Davidson says the key to finding a solution for Lyme disease is understanding how it works and how it affects our body.   

“You don’t have to manage it. It is just because you’re not peeling down the layers. We are given an immune system that is amazing. All we have to do is to identify all factors,” Dr. Jay Davidson said.  

He adds, “Our immune system can get over Lyme. Often, it is triggered by emotional stress and mold exposure. Essentially, Lyme is a clinical diagnosis and not a lab test diagnosis.”  

Parasites And Its Effects  

Dr. Jay Davidson believes that parasites are such an epidemic. It is because there is not much effort to teach people about parasites. That is why he advises his patients to do a long parasite-type cleanse to empty out the stuff that’s in us. Then remember to do a cleanse once every six months for maintenance.   

Dr. Jay Davidson further explains that bugs love trauma. And when there’s trauma, the immune system gets suppressed. Hence, there’s a chance that bugs can flourish.   

Health conditions like pelvic pain, ovarian pain, bladder pain, pain during intercourse and labor pain are just some of the examples where bugs can be prevalent.  This is because the immune system diminishes in those areas of surgery. Apparently, bugs go there because it is an easier environment to take over.   

“Anything you are doing to kill parasites, you’re going to do two things—kill the parasites and release heavy metals,” said Dr. Jay Davidson. “So it is also important to have some binders. It is so simple to do but effective.”  

Heavy Metals Toxicity  

According to Dr. Jay Davidson, heavy metals toxicity is the direct impact of the parasite. Symptoms include anything from headaches to fatigue. We can get infected through our environment, food and even the water that we drink.  

The most common heavy metals are lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic, and cadmium. One way of reducing the risk of having heavy metals toxicity is by changing our dietary habits.   

“If you have heavy metals toxicity, your body is more likely to keep those parasites around. Parasites absorb heavy metals. Mold spores can live inside parasites. If parasites are around, we would never be able to detox heavy metals,” explains Dr. Jay Davidson.   

BioActive Carbon Supplements  

The body is pretty much water and carbon. That comprises approximately 96% of molecules in the body. Dr. Jay Davidson adds that when you have carbons to donate, those are building blocks for the cells.   

So to help get rid of toxins in the body, Dr. Jay Davidson offers two kinds of supplements—BioActive Carbon 1 and BioActive Carbon Plus.  Both are available on his website.   

BioActive Carbon 1 is a supplement for heavy metals and environmental toxins. It is not from activated charcoal and instead, comes from multiple sources of humic acid and fulvic acid.   

BioActive Carbon Plus, on the other hand, is a systemic biotin binder. This means it can support binding biotoxins like mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are usually associated with ammonia from bacteria, mold, parasites, fungi, yeasts, and viruses.  

“It binds toxins very well. So if there is an excess of toxicity in the body, it could potentially cause irritation, and you can feel agitated or anxious,” Dr. Jay Davidson said. “Vast symptoms can occur when you start detox too fast. Start with half a capsule twice a day for one week or two. But usually, one capsule twice a day is the recommended dosage.”   

Formula 1 

This supplement is a support for anti-parasite. It contains a combination of three herbs that contain organic neem, organic vidanga, and organic clove.   

Dr. Jay Davidson suggests that it is advisable to do periodic cleansing every six months.  He assures that his supplements are safe because they do not use fillers or additives. It is also GMO-free, gluten-free.  

“Periodic cleansing keeps the numbers down. The goal isn’t to kill every single bacteria, parasite, and virus in our body because our body is vastly made up of these things,” said Dr. Jay Davidson.  

Bio

Dr. Jay Davidson D.C., PSc.D. completed his undergraduate studies at University Wisconsin La Crosse Majoring in Biology with biomedical concentration and chemistry minor. He received his doctorate of chiropractic degree at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota.  

Dr. Jay Davidson focuses on functional, natural medicine. He is a husband and a father. He is also a popular speaker and a two-time #1 international best-selling author. He was the host of the Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #1 and Chronic Lyme Disease Summit #2. He was also the host of the Parasite Summit and a co-host of The Detox Project, which had over 50,000 participants.  

Dr. Jay Davidson is admired for his ability to bridge the gap between the scientific health community and the layperson. His holistic approach encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. He works with his clients to formulate a simple, straightforward plan for restoring health. This has gained him tremendous respect among the Lyme community and his colleagues.  

Dr. Jay Davidson is an ambitious researcher and clinician in the health world. He and his team of well-trained doctors work with clients virtually around the world! He is also the Co-founder of Microbe Formulas, the premier parasite supplement company at MicrobeFormulas.com.

Spices For Weight Loss

http://learntruehealth.com/spices/

Spices can help you lose weight. I have indeed heard about spices as an aid to lose weight, and we're so lucky to have Health Coach Nagina Abdullah explain that in this episode. It's great timing because Christmas is just around the corner, so it's best that we are aware of what we eat before diving into all that holiday food.

Personal Transformation

Nagina Abdullah's success story was a result of a personal transformation. It was a constant struggle to be healthy, and like me, she tried practically every diet there is.

Atkins, Paleo, South Beach diet---you name it, we tried it!

Her weight issues went on after graduating from UC Berkley and New York University. She eventually she got married, had kids and found herself in a very demanding job as a management consultant in healthcare.

Because of her hectic career, Nagina Abdullah led an unhealthy lifestyle of not getting any exercise and eating unhealthy food. Her frustration in losing weight consequently made her insecure.

Turning Point

One day, Nagina Abdullah remembers feeling exhausted. Hence, she wasn't able to take her kids out to play that day. That led her to deeply ponder about her weight issues and how it prevented her from being the best version of herself.

Resolving to make a change, Nagina Abdullah decided to reprioritize. However, because of her busy work life, she found going to the gym virtually impossible. So Nagina Abdullah thought of first changing the way she ate.

"I read online as well as books on nutrition and new ways of thinking. My background was in molecular and cell biology, and understanding how hormones worked," shares Nagina Abdullah. "So I started to adopt new scientific approaches and started to eat differently."

Instead of focusing on eating fewer calories, Nagina Abdullah focused on the type of foods she was eating. She cut down on sugar and ate natural and healthier food. To decrease inflammation, Nagina Abdullah also learned to eat slower and ate healthier carbs than fast burning white carbs.

Discovering Spices

During her weight loss journey, Nagina Abdullah found out that adding spices made her food taste better. She, later on, found out that spices were a significant factor in helping her lose weight.

"Spices are incredibly anti-inflammatory and increases metabolism. It also has a lot of other health benefits. After I made food changes, I lost 10 lbs. in a month without exercise," Nagina Abdullah recalls.

Ecstatic over her initial success, Nagina Abdullah added two days of strength training and kept eating the same way. She was thrilled the weight kept coming off! She lost a total of 20 lbs. in 3 months and 40 lbs. in 9 months, exercising just two days a week.

Ever since Nagina Abdullah started using spices in her food, she claims that it tastes so good and she feels so nourished. In fact, she says it has become a habit because she now actually craves vegetables.

"The part I took with me was hormonal regulation. Understanding that insulin release is key to weight loss," explains Nagina Abdullah. "It's not only about calories. Essentially, it is the type of food you're putting in your body that is going to signal your insulin to be released either faster or slower."

Benefits Of Spices

Nagina Abdullah further explains that spices were used for centuries. Our ancestors used them, and it is something that kept us going as human species. However, we can't say the same for processed foods.

And just what exactly are the benefits of spices? For one thing, spices are anti-inflammatory. It lowers blood pressure. And it stores less fat in your body, as well as decrease water retention.

Nagina Abdullah also says that if you are feeling lethargic, chances are, your hormones are not acting in the right way because of inflammation of the body. Inflammation is caused by too much sugar, chemicals or stress.

Our body apparently works better if we decrease inflammation. And by incorporating spices in our food, it protects us from diseases and even slows down the aging process.

"Many people don't realize we have inflammation until we change the food we are eating. The body feels so different," Nagina Abdullah said. "For me, it was a game changer. I wasn't just eating to lose weight. Consequently, my body felt good and I felt better."

Nagina Abdullah says a lot of people suffer from inflammation because of the food they eat. Add on to that; doctors prescribe drugs that merely mask the symptom.

Ever heard the saying that stress causes weight gain? It does! This is because stress releases cortisol. Nagina Abdullah says it mobilizes blood sugar and acts as a systemic immune suppressant. That is why there is an inflammatory response.

Nagina Abdullah attests that the transition is tricky, but you need to commit. She says that after balancing your body with the right kind of food, you won't crave food like you used to.

Three Powerful Spices

Now, we're in for a treat! Nagina Abdullah lists these three as the most powerful spices that you can incorporate into your diet:

Cinnamon

- It stabilizes blood sugar and curbs sugar cravings.

- Cinnamon does not have insulin release, unlike sugar. When you are avoiding that insulin release, you're storing less fat.

- Perfect to add in coffee, tea or smoothies.

Turmeric

- It fights inflammation.

- Turmeric helps block fat and lower body fat.

- It has mild, earthy taste.

- It adds color to your food.

- Try to make a golden smoothie, consisting of almond milk, turmeric, a dash of vanilla and a sprinkle of black pepper. Black pepper increases the absorption of turmeric by 2000 to 5000 percent.

- Add turmeric to egg and sprinkle with cayenne pepper.

Ginger

- Increases digestion and decreases inflammation.

- Perfect for teas.

- Chop or grate to avoid the concentration of flavor.

Masala Body

Nagina Abdullah's website seeks to help people lose weight naturally through eating spices. Through her programs, she has successfully educated many clients on the right way to eat.

She also shares that an efficient way to plan out meals is to do all your meal preps for the week on a Sunday. Apart from roasting vegetables, chicken or fish, she advises the use of glass containers to prolong the freshness of the cooked food.

"You'll never feel deprived. And that's why it works. Because you have these natural health benefits, you'll feel so much better, and you'll end up wanting to do it more."

Nagina Abdullah is a health coach for ambitious women and founder of the website MasalaBody.com. She teaches women her easy anti-inflammatory system for sustainable weight loss and higher energy levels. Nagina Abdullah has been featured in Business Insider, People.com, Huffington Post and on Fox News.

Nagina Abdullah has a degree from UC Berkeley in Molecular and Cell Biology and worked as a healthcare consultant for some of the largest healthcare providers in the country.

Chiropractic Healing 

http://learntruehealth.com/chiropractic-healing

Chiropractic healing has successfully treated a lot of illnesses.  It has changed a lot of people's lives. Best of all, this type of healing is entirely natural and free of any drugs. To further educate us on what chiropractic healing is, Dr. Patrick Gallagher is my guest in today's episode.

I love chiropractors.  In fact, I was exposed to methods of chiropractic healing ever since I was a toddler. Twelve chiropractors have treated me in my lifetime. One especially stood out because he successfully addressed my neck injury which turned out to be life-saving.

Personal Experience

Dr. Patrick Gallagher likewise had a very personal experience with chiropractic healing at such a young age. In the summer of 1980, after coming from a graduation party, he got into a motorcycle accident.

He was 17 years old at the time of the accident and was in a coma for eleven days.  As expected, he was in terrible shape. With a misaligned spine and other injuries, he had to receive chiropractic care.

Pursuing Chiropractic Healing

Dr. Gallagher recalls that it took at least a month and a half to recover from his accident. Throughout that time, he had to endure brain fog, headaches, and blurred vision. He credits Dr. Lester Lutz who helped align his spine and treated him until he fully recovered.

Because chiropractic healing did wonders for his recovery, Dr. Patrick Gallagher became inspired to pursue that career. After years of study and chiropractic healing experience, he went on to specialize in treating head traumas.

What Does It Mean

Having your spine realigned doesn't mean cracking of joints. Most people who suffer from headaches, joint pain, and backaches, go to a chiropractor for natural treatment methods.

Aside from that, the following conditions can be treated with chiropractic healing:

  • Ear infection
  • Scoliosis
  • Pregnancy
  • Blood pressure
  • Organ function
  • Surgery prevention
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • Mental clarity
  • Bowel regularity 

"I specialize in the atlas orthogonal method.  My specialty is to align your skull with the rest of your anatomy or spine," said Dr. Patrick Gallagher.

Atlas Orthogonal Method

The 'atlas,'  is the top bone of the spine that supports our head. Orthogonal is defined as 'at a right angle to,' or 'square.' Developed by Dr. Roy Sweat in the late 60s, the atlas orthogonal method is a gentle, non-invasive way to relieve discomfort. 

We usually would feel discomfort if the atlas is not aligned with the spine. Many patients who recovered by using this method are amazed as to how the whole procedure is painless. 

"The body is self-healing, and our nervous system controls it. If the atlas bone is dislodged from its place where it is the lightest bone of the spine, there is no space between the neck and head," said Dr. Patrick Gallagher. "When there's a jolt to the skull and gets displaced, that's when you would feel pain."

Supine Leg Check (SLC) Test

Dr. Patrick Gallagher administers this kind of screening test to see if there is a difference in leg length. Apparently, unequal length of the legs affects our posture. And when our posture is affected, it consequently means our head and spine is not aligned.

"Head alignment is important because if the head is titled, it affects balance. Our spine alignment is likewise important because it is a sensitive tissue and it is the extension of the brain," said Dr. Patrick Gallagher.

Activator Method

The activator is a hand-held device that is used to treat the joints with a  "low force adjustment." It is part of the activator method wherein techniques are used to treat joint dysfunction in the spine.

Apart from treating spinal joint dysfunction, this method also analyzes leg length, detects body mechanics issues as well as neurological reflexes. The activator is essentially a high-speed and controlled type of adjustment. It is an efficient way to restore overall spinal balance.

Healing For Kids

Contrary to what other people think, chiropractic healing is for people of all ages. In fact, because most kids suffer from ear infections, it can be treated by a chiropractor in just a few sessions.

Chiropractic healing can also treat kids suffering from colic and acid reflux. The treatment consequently reduces pressure on certain nerves and realigns the spine.

Dr. Patrick Gallagher also warns parents not to put their babies on a bouncing chair since their bones are not yet fully developed. Apart from the head, the neck and spine are very delicate parts.

"Do not put a child in that bouncing seat until they have begun walking on their own," Dr. Patrick Gallagher said. "You're building those neuropathways, and you must first to establish that at the very crucial stage of life."

Finding A Good Doctor

In any given situation, we must do thorough research before we zero in on a doctor who would treat us. The ideal doctor must have the time and compassion to sit down and listen to you.

"The best bet is by referrals. Try to find somebody who is concerned about what is going on with you.  A good doctor also teaches you how to listen to your body and make appropriate responses to what is going on," advises Dr. Patrick Gallagher.

Is Your Head On Straight?

Dr. Patrick also recommends his book, 'Is Your Head On Straight?' for additional reference on everything you need to know about head trauma. The book contains methods on how you can realign your atlas or the top bone in your neck.

It likewise contains several testimonials from people whose lives have changed ever since they went through chiropractic treatment. To get a copy, the book is available on Amazon.

Dr. Patrick Gallagher graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1982 after receiving his Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Minnesota. He and Dr. Trainer started Brook West Chiropractic in 1982. 

Dr. Gallagher incorporates both manual and light force manipulation into his practices as well as emphasizing exercise and prevention. He is acupuncture certified and utilizes trigger point, myofascial release, and Graston techniques when treating soft tissue problems. 

He enjoys treating sports injuries and shares an avid interest in golf, in-line skating, and cross-country skiing. He has completed 16 in-line marathons and in 2012 skied his first American Birkebeiner. He believes that exercise and diet are essential to wellness. He has trained many chiropractic interns and earned Associate Clinical Faculty Status from Northwestern Health Science University. 

He is one of only 600 doctors worldwide who has earned the Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal (B.C.A.O.) certificate and got his DC degree from Life University.

The Healing Power Of Silence

 http://learntruehealth.com/healing-power-silence

Silence is a powerful healing tool. However, many people take it for granted. To further expound on how silence dramatically contributes to our overall well-being, I'm ecstatic that health and life coach KJ Landis is once again on the show today!  

Dark Past  

For those who missed listening to KJ Landis' past guesting, I'm re-introducing her before we dive into the topic for today's episode.  You'll be so blown away as to how KJ Landis survived a dark past and transformed herself to become a fantastic coach today.    

First of all, KJ Landis was an educator in the mid-80s.  However, before that, she reveals that she was obese as a child.  As a victim of sexual molestation by some adult and teenaged male relatives, KJ Landis used food and music as comfort.  

Throughout that time, KJ Landis kept silent. Fast forward several years later, KJ Landis found herself again struggling with weight issues during her mid-40s. She eventually found ways to lose the weight and sought ways to maintain her weight.  

New Forms Of Silence  

KJ Landis found that silence was the solution for her to keep the weight off. However, unlike the kind of silence she went through during her dark past, this was an entirely different kind of silence. 

"The focus for me was doing new forms of silence like meditation, eating healthy, yoga, hiking or anything that compliments the scientific facts of what to eat to maintain a healthful life," said KJ Landis.  

Empowering People  

KJ Landis' personal experience led her to become an expert in empowering people through her workshops on essential oils and knowing the benefits of good fats. She also offers workshops on helping people eat right by educating them on the kinds of organic foods.  

"I want people to feel empowered, healthy, and enlightened. There are different modalities of silence that have helped me," said KJ Landis. "These are also what I recommend to my clients.  It includes the negative thought pot, hiking, yoga, meditation, walking, bathing, candles, oils, prayers, reading, writing and sleep."  

Negative Thought Pot 

This concept of throwing away negative thoughts originated from one situation KJ Landis had with her daughter. To help her daughter get rid of her negative feelings that time, they wrote down negative thoughts on pieces of paper and burned it in a pot.   

The negative thought pot is a wonderful solution especially for those who need to visualize getting rid of feelings that hamper ourselves to be positive. KJ Landis says this exercise can either be done indoors or outdoors and the act of burning is essentially a form of healing.   

"When you physically have that mind and body connection of writing it negative thoughts down, going through the head and heart on paper, you remember the memory that you physically destroyed it," KJ Landis said.  

She adds, "It's like slamming the door with the negative thoughts. It's about opening your mind to new possibilities once you close the door on things that are holding you back."  

Getting Enough Sleep   

According to KJ Landis, sleep is the easiest way to enjoy the silence.  Many of us underestimate the power of sleep. We're usually so wrapped up doing so many things and end up taking sleep for granted.   

To those who have a hard time sleeping, KJ Landis suggests establishing a time to wind down for the day and get rid of thoughts that prevent us from having a good night's rest.   

Tools like scented candles, soothing music or eyemasks may help. Once we resolve to allow ourselves to wind down, we will eventually sleep deeper and better.  

Bathing In Silence  

Now, this is one of KJ Landis' favorite methods of enjoying the silence. She shares that bathing in silence with scented candles and essential oils feels terrific! Having no windows in her bathroom also adds an extra layer of silence.   

"All you hear is water. It is highly enlightening and meditative. Plus, the layer of scent allows your imagination to wander and simmer in your memory," said KJ Landis.  

Reading And Writing  

Reading is something that a lot of people find relaxing. KJ Landis says reading is a silent healer. Back in the old days when there weren't that many gadgets, we get lost in another world just by reading books.   

Just like reading, a lot of people also find writing to be therapeutic. In fact, when I was younger, I went out with a guy and was oblivious to the fact that he was emotionally abusive. Journaling did help me cope, and I certainly learned a lot from that experience.  

"Writing is so powerful because it's coming from knowledge. It's also coming from pure divine inspiration from whatever is around you," KJ Landis said.  

Meditating In Silence  

KJ Landis has tried meditation since she was 15 years old. However, it was only five years ago that she felt her meditation sessions were successful. Apart from meditation, KJ Landis likewise practices yoga.  

There are advanced sessions for meditation, and KJ Landis advises beginners to take it step by step. Both meditation and yoga entail correct breathing techniques which takes time to master.  

Prayer  

We have all heard that when everything else fails, prayer prevails. And that's so true! Prayer helps us tune in to the deepest core of our spirituality. And to pray in silence attracts a fantastic sense of peace and empowerment.  

"The difference between prayer and meditation is that prayer is honoring an outside source or making a request. Praying is a quiet intention, yet it is an amazing healer. That modality is as powerful as meditation," said KJ Landis.  

Nature Walks  

KJ Landis says that hiking and walking in Japan is called 'shin-rin yoku' or forest bathing. It is the most popular recommendation by Japanese doctors to treat patients with anxiety, stress, high blood, bipolar, depression, high cholesterol.   

"It is communing with nature and engaging our five senses. Being in touch with nature is important to our biology, physiology, and emotional wellness," affirms KJ Landis.  

Sensory Deprivation Tank  

Not many people are familiar with this method of healing, but KJ Landis says this process costs money. It essentially makes you feel like you're in outer space and taps into your sixth sense which is your instinct.   

KJ Landis shares that although she failed to feel a sense of enlightenment, other people have succeeded in releasing anxiety through this method.   

Happy Healthy You Book  

To know more about KJ Landis' methods for recharging your mind body and soul, her book is an excellent resource for tips and tricks on how to be healthy inside and out.   

The book teaches you how to get rid of all your emotional and mental baggage. It also educates you on how you can make time to enjoy the healing powers of silence.   

"When creating a space of sacred silence or ritual silence, work at it as a present to yourself. Because you deserve to be the best you that you can be for all of your life," said KJ Landis.   

She adds, "Once you realize that everything out there is a part of nature and you figure out your big 'why' to be silent, it can help you in other areas of your life. Once it becomes regular, you'll feel better."  

Bio

KJ Landis is an author, educator, former model, health and life coach, photographer and role model. She has inspired thousands with her holistic approach to health and wellness. Her ability to communicate effectively, compassionately, and with patience has helped build the self-esteem and attainment of others' life goals.  

Landis grew up the youngest of five children in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She was taught that food equaled love, and she was greatly loved. At age 12, she was 5'2" and 173 pounds.   

Her doctors told her parents that if KJ continued to eat in a current manner, she would be a heart attack candidate within months. This scared her parents and the 12 year old into learning about portion control and nutrient dense foods that were beneficial to a young girl's wellness.   

The next two years saw a 40-pound weight loss, a height increase of 8 inches, and a newfound love of exercise. Then the pendulum swung in the opposite direction. KJ had a fast metabolism from ages 14 to 16, and her weight plummeted to 102 pounds at her lowest, where her height was 5'10."   

This made her extremely happy, as now she could eat anything she wanted and she didn't get larger!

Keto Chocolate Pudding

http://learntruehealth.com/keto-chocolate-pudding

Ashley's Amazing Healthy Keto Chocolate Pudding Meal!

This is one of my favorite healthy recipes because it's fast, delicious and nutritious. This is safe for diabetics, the ketogenic diet or those who want a healthy alternative to a sugary dessert!

Also, this recipe is SO easy to make that anyone with any experience level can do it easily! Make this for your friends and you will WOW them. They will never know it is actually healthy. I made this as the dessert for our family's Thanksgiving dinner, and everyone loved it! Even the family member who hates healthy alternatives wanted seconds!

My Chocolate Pudding is a staple in our home. My son calls it chocolate Ice Cream because we don't feed him junk food so this is the closest he has ever come to ice cream!

It can be used as a meal replacement, dessert or as a great snack because it is so filling and satiating.

We eat this often as a meal when we are on the go or as an evening snack. I've also had it for breakfast!

I used to run around to different stores to buy all of the right ingredients but just found it easier to get them from Amazon to save time and money. You will find the links to everything you need below!

At the bottom, I have included info about adding extra fiber. Try it with and then without and see which one you like best. You can also add MCT oil and coconut oil to the mix if you are doing the ketogenic diet should you wish to up the fat content.

What you need:

 

The Health Benefits Of This Recipe:

1. The protein is easy to digest and utilize as collagen is so healing for the gut, helps build healthy connective tissue, hair, skin, and nails.

2. Gentle, healthy fat, good phytonutrients, and antioxidants in cocoa powder and the creamy sweet texture feels like a real treat when it is actually healthy.

3. The big bonus about this is you can make it once or twice a week and use them as snacks or have two servings as a whole meal! Also makes for an excellent breakfast or quick lunch.

Optional Tweaks:

FOR TASTE:

1. Dash of Real Salt (healthiest salt)

2. Add 1 - 2 tsp Vanilla extract.

FOR MORE HEALTHY FAT:

1. Adding MCT oil would give each serving 4.6g additional fat - 2 Tbsp MCT Oil to batch after adding gelatin to the blender while still blending.

FOR MORE FIBER:

1. If you would like added fiber, you can add Chia Seed powder. To do this, blend four heaping Tbsp of seed powder to 3/4 of extra coconut milk or water.

2. Pour into a bowl and let soak for a few hours before blending into the rest of the mix to prevent this pudding from becoming too granular from the seeds. Add to pudding batch after adding gelatin to the blender while blending.

3. This will add over 3g of fiber to each serving. It will also add 3g more of healthy fat, mostly from omegas, 2g more of protein and a bit more carbs. However, the fiber negates most of the carbs.

4. You will need to add 2 or more tbsp of coco powder and possibly a bit more Stevia to taste.

Enjoy and please let me know how you and your family enjoy my Healthy Chocolate Pudding!

Yoga For Healing

http://learntruehealth.com/yoga/

Yoga For Healing  

Yoga is an ancient form of healing which more people are turning to instead of taking medication. It is a  physical, emotional, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. To know more about what yoga is all about, my guest, Or Shahar will explain how this method can affect our health positively.   

Trip To India  

Or Shahar was exposed to yoga as early as 18 years old. She has three older sisters, and one of them convinced her to go to India during her teenage years.  The trip indeed impacted her a lot and proved to be helpful in later years when she battled depression at around 21 years old.   

“I had mental health issues, and yoga helped a lot towards the end of my recovery.  Yoga taught me to be stable, but I still questioned life,” recalls Or Shahar. “I questioned how to be happy. I questioned what happiness is.”  

Or Shahar’s turning point came four years ago in Berlin when she decided to become a teacher after years of practicing traditional yoga and embracing Buddhism. After a period of getting in touch with her spirituality and understanding the purpose of her existence, Or Shahar eventually built Freedom Yoga with a motto that happiness comes from within.   

Hatha Yoga  

There are many kinds of yoga and Or Shahar practices Hatha yoga in particular. Or Shahar explains that by definition, Hatha is a physical yoga practice, which is pretty much all yoga you’ll find in this hemisphere.   

According to Or Shahar, Hatha is one of the six original branches of yoga, and it encompasses nearly all types of modern yoga. Today, classes described as Hatha on studio schedules are typically a primary and classical approach to yogic breathing exercises and postures.  

“All of the styles of yoga are all Hatha yoga. They come from the same source,” said Or Shahar.   

Importance of Yoga  

People who practice yoga have attested to the fact that the practice allows them to connect to who they are at a deeper level. While most of us seek conventional ways to alleviate suffering, practicing yoga provides another avenue for us to resolve our inner conflicts.   

“Yoga has many benefits. It makes us strong and flexible. Based on personal experience, I improved my mental mindset by focusing on the present moment,” said Or Shahar. “Yoga teaches us how to use the body and breath as an anchor. Because if you are breathing right, it affects your body and your body’s sensation.”  

Or Shahar adds, “Once you correctly practice yoga, you will eventually develop awareness to the body.  Strengthening that part of you will support you in your everyday life.”  

Success Stories  

Or Shahar had witnessed and helped a lot of people to heal over the years through yoga. She has helped relieve clients from physical, emotional, spiritual and mental pain, as well as taught them how to continue to stay on track.  

She admits that some health conditions are challenging. And although it might not completely eradicate the suffering, yoga eases the pain to a certain point.  Or Shahar helps clients achieve that by incorporating Buddist approaches in her yoga sessions.   

“Students undergo a deep process. Eventually, they can use yoga in everyday life. Most students end up feeling empowered,” Or Shahar said. “However, in some cases, yoga is not a cure for health conditions like depression. The best way sometimes is to get a good support system while you are on a recovery path.”  

Dealing With Emotional Attachments  

Or Shahar explains that as far are emotions are concerned, suppressing it can cause us mental and emotional slavery. Now this, I can relate.  

I remember when I first moved to the United States, my father was in the process of moving his factory. Part of that move was my dad storing possessions belonging to me, my mom and my grandparents.   

However, it was not long before my dad suddenly passed away and those stored possessions were stolen shortly after. Feeling helpless in the U.S., my utmost concern was to recover at least our photo albums.   

Fortunately, my best friend who was living in Canada was able to retrieve the photo albums for me. All the other possessions were lost, but that experience taught me to learn to let go and move on.   

Making Realistic Expectations  

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘Expectations lead to disappointments?’ Well, it’s true. According to Or Shahar,  if you make an effort and commitment, you will see some change. It is not magic, but it works!  

Some choose to do yoga for weight loss, but realistically, yoga merely serves as a support to lose weight. That is why it is essential to connect with your body to be able to listen to what it needs.   

“When it comes to expectations, we hold to disappointments. We let ourselves defined by it. The more you hold on to it, the more dangerous it can become, because the holding on is what creates the suffering,” said Or Shahar.  

Or Shahar suggests that to start connecting to your body, you must first learn the techniques on how to breathe correctly. Doing breathing exercises at a quiet place is recommended.   

Once you are settled in a comfortable position, be aware of your breathing and lengthen your breath as you inhale and exhale through your lungs and diaphragm. The right way to pace your breathing is to do four counts of inhaling and exhale.  

“People do yoga for varied reasons. In the end, the real reason to do yoga is to gain this inner freedom and this inner peace. If that is your goal, then dig deep why are you doing yoga,” Or Shahar said.  

How To Jumpstart A Yoga Practice  

Ready to try yoga? Great! You’re on the right track because yoga helps relax your body inside out and clears your mind.    

“Yoga has a long-lasting effect. It is not for the lazy. You need to do the work,” advises Or Shahar. “It doesn’t matter how much you do. Just start doing it. There are very clear guidelines in yoga on what you can do and what you should practice.”  

Or Shahar took her first yoga course during her first trip to India, at only 18 years old. Since then she has made some wrong turns and a few long breaks, but yoga has always stayed an essential and guiding part of her life.  

At 23, recovering from depression and feeling uninspired by art school, Or Shahar took a plane to India again, this time, with the full intention to do some real learning. 

There she discovered her deep connection to Buddhism, took her first yoga teacher training and started to practice seriously.    

Or Shahar kept practicing and traveling and serving for three more years, until she decided to grow roots in Berlin, Germany. There, she took her second yoga teacher training at Shakti Yogaloft (a 3-year long course consisting of over 500 hours of training) plus an advanced training “Yoga for People with Special Needs” (with Antje Kuwert) and started to teach.  

Today Or Shahar keeps deepening her practice every day, raise her beloved dog and teach around Berlin. She helps yoga practitioners who feel like their weekly class is not enough anymore, to deepen their practice without spending tons of time and money on yoga teacher training.  

Through online training and one-on-one coaching, Or Shahar’s students get the support they need to integrate yoga into their everyday routine easily. When their practice becomes more regular and more meaningful, the result is inner peace, that benefits every aspect of their life.

Probiotics

http://learntruehealth.com/probiotics/

Probiotics

Probiotics are something that we shouldn’t take for granted. Those who suffer from digestive issues are most likely familiar that probiotics are live bacteria that greatly aid in digestion.  However, my guest Wade Lightheart cautions against taking just any brand of probiotics. This episode is jampacked with information on what is the best probiotics to take and how to improve our digestive health!

Early Exposure

Wade Lightheart has been exposed to the world of nutrition as young as 15 years old. Reading about supplements from bodybuilding magazines since he was a teenager certainly piqued his interest.

After graduating from university in 1994, he went on to work at a nutrition store. Working there provided him the ample experience and knowledge to eventually open his nutrition store years after.

However, the most significant break came in 1999 when Wade Lightheart was asked by a group of businessmen to write a book. After a little prodding, he eventually wrote the book Fat Burners For Dummies.

Bioptimizers

If some of you think Wade Lightheart looks familiar, well, that’s because he’s a pretty iconic personality in the bodybuilding world. In 2004, after becoming the first vegetarian to win the Mr. Universe title, Wade Lightheart began to explore ways on how to help people improve their digestive health.

A friend happened to broach the idea of Wade Lightheart selling his life story online by offering health courses since a lot of people apparently had digestive issues. That got Wade Lightheart interested enough to look into developing products to improve digestion and utilize nutrients. Fast forward three or four years later, Wade Lightheart’s Bioptimizers company was born. 

Focusing On Digestive Health

Bioptimizers’ primary mission is focusing on fixing digestion.  According to Wade Lightheart, it is important that we do not take digestive issues lightly. Digestive problems affect our quality of life. It also contributes to some health issues like cancer, heart disease, and depression.

“It doesn’t matter what dietary practice you follow. You’re not what you eat. You’re what you absorb and utilize, as well as what you can eliminate from the body,” said Wade Lightheart.

Developing Products

So many of us were dependent on medication. Lucky are those who have gone the natural route to healing.  And because there are still many out there who depend on drugs to hopefully resolve their digestive issues, Wade Lightheart hopes to alleviate that problem through his products.

Wade Lightheart takes pride in the fact that Bioptimizers design their products in conjunction with industry experts. Working with a variety of co-manufacturers has made Wade Lightheart realize that no one company is expert in all things.

“Digestion issues are the 5th leading cause of death digestive illness and 85% are unreported digestive issues,” Wade Lightheart said, “Twenty-five percent are on prescription medication for digestion that is normally recommended for only four to eight weeks, but some people have been taking that medication for years.”

Having a lot of faith in the quality of his products, Wade Lightheart reveals that before public consumption, he has personally tested his products on himself. The company even has a 365-day money back guarantee!

Dealing With Pathogens

Pathogens are infectious agents that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Agents include viruses, worms, fungi, bacteria, fungi and protozoa which can be deadly if not treated properly.

Wade Lightheart explains that fundamentally, the body has a variety of mechanisms to deal with pathogens. He says hydrochloric acid is the first line of defense to disinfect harmful bacteria and pathogens which can affect parasites. However, because a lot of people don’t produce enough hydrochloric acid, this is the reason why they develop health issues. 

The Human Microbiome

Our body is made up of microbes. When we do not eat properly, it directly affects our digestive system. And when that happens, people commonly think that taking antibiotics is the answer. However, speaking from experience, Wade Lightheart shares a word of caution on the adverse effects of antibiotics.

“An overdose of antibiotics is bad. There will be a change in the body’s microbiome. When I was on a restrictive diet for 11 months, my microbiome was so altered. My whole system shut down,” shares Wade Lightheart. “I had to rebuild my health by taking probiotics. It took me six months to recover my health.”

Benefits of Probiotics

Now that we know the factors affecting our digestive health, the big question now is, ‘How do we get rid of it?'” Wade Lightheart says one way to improve digestive health is to experiment with fermented foods. Another way is to take probiotics.

There are many brands of probiotics in the market. Unfortunately, not all are good ones because some brands have additives. Hence, Wade Lightheart stresses that one must make sure to choose the right brand.

Wade Lightheart explains that his probiotics products work by cultivating a super bacteria to go in the body and wipe out all the pathogens which double in the body every 20 minutes.

P3-OM Probiotics

Wade Lightheart says that some people with herpes, yeast infection and those recovering from cancer have reported positive results after taking this product called P3-OM Probiotics. It increases the body’s bioactive amino acids which are needed for muscle growth and recovery.

“The goal is to get the microbiome back in balance so your body can heal itself,” said Wade Lightheart. “Users of my product have reported a dramatic reduction in symptoms directly proportionate to how closely or how high the dosage they go through.”

Ideally, for the products to be efficient, Wade Lightheart recommends taking it for 90 days. He takes pride in sharing that the product is so good, that Bioptimizers have the lowest refund rate compared to other companies.

He also suggests taking a coconut kefir with the probiotics.  Doing this procedure has proven to eliminate food cravings, brain fog, bloating, as well as reduce body fat and regulate appetite in 30 to 60 days.

Awesome Health Course

For those who would want to get on the right track by improving their health further, you’re in for a treat! Wade Lightheart is currently offering a 12-week course that will educate you on the seven pillars of awesome health.

“No matter how difficult the road might have been to get to this point, you’re on the right track. Surround yourself with people who are moving in the same direction,” said Wade Lightheart. “Have faith that you will overcome any challenge. Realize it’s not about the outcome. Honor the struggle and honor the journey.”

He says the word ‘awesome,’ is an acronym for air, water, exercise, sunlight, optimizers, mental beliefs and attitudes, education, testing, and coaching. Through his five 15-minute videos, you will learn all about the benefits of the different types of water, cellular function, the impact of the sun in our body, hormonal health and many more.

“When you adopt that mindset, the body’s physiology takes on a true energy of radiance and power. You become empowered,” Wade Lightheart said. “Recognize you have a gift and let go of the negative. Trust that next step is the right direction because life is truly meant to be a wonderful adventure.”

Wade Lightheart is 3-Time Canadian Natural Bodybuilding Champion and one of the world’s premier authorities on Natural Nutrition and Training Methods. Having majored in Sports Science at the University of New Brunswick, he has authored numerous books on health, nutrition, and exercise which have sold in over 80 countries. 

Wade Lightheart is sought out by athletes and high-performance oriented individuals worldwide for his advice on how to optimize their health and fitness levels.
