Is Detoxing for You?

Robyn Openshaw is a researcher and expert in human detoxification.

You’ve heard about cleansing or detoxing, and maybe you’ve wondered:

  • Is it scary?
  • Will I suffer?
  • Will I be hungry?
  • Don’t I have a liver and kidneys already “detoxing” for me?
  • Will my food addictions get the best of me?
  • Will I fail?

Robyn made this short video about WHO should detoxify, and WHY…..after over 20 years of studying with the most gifted and knowledgeable holistic clinicians all over the world–on 4 continents, in 19 clinics.

She learned that the vast majority of medical doctors have no idea how to optimize the detoxification pathways of the body.

And why you NEED to, just like you need to change the air filter and oil filter in your car.

(If you’d had a Model T in the 1930’s during the infamous Dust Bowl, could you have driven forever without changing the air filter? With 84,000 chemicals approved for use in our environment now….well, it’s the equivalent of the Dust Bowl!)

Eating processed food and animal products, and even conventional produce sprayed with herbicides and pesticides, adds to your Toxic Body Burden. (That is, the amount of toxicity that goes in, reduced by the amount that is filtered out, by your organs of elimination.)

Toxins in your beauty products and in your water and air are other sources of exposure.

We live in a strange new world full of synthetic chemicals harmful to human life, everywhere.

(The Environmental Working Group estimates the average woman is exposed to over 100 harmful chemicals every week, through personal care products alone!)

In your food, there are genetically modified ingredients, synthetic additives, preservatives, nitrites and nitrates in cured meats, neurotoxins like MSG and aspartame in hundreds of products. And so much more.

Municipal water contains endocrine disruptors like chlorine, fluoride, phthalates, and even residuals of prescription drugs. Bottled water contains leached plastics.

In Robyn’s Detox Video Masterclass she’s made available to us, Robyn tackles all these topics.

If you’ve ever wondered what you can do, to eliminate more toxicity from your body, check out her 4 really educational inspiring and educational videos in the masterclass on these topics:

  1. Could Toxicity Be Why I’m Sick? The 7 Types of Toxins in Your Body and How to Eliminate Them
  2. How to Change Your Weight Set Point Forever (Detoxing, Not Dieting)
  3. 8 Foods That Help You Detoxify (and 11 That Cause Toxicity)
  4. Bonus: How a Physical Detox Can Resolve Emotional Issues

She’s offering you a spot in her FREE video class, on how to clean up and reboot your organs of elimination, to feel better than you have in 20 years.

VIDEO: Is Detoxing For You?
After 20 years of research and experimentation, Robyn has now supported over 10,000 people through a 26-day detox process.

She’s gathered data, including 500 detoxers’ inspiring stories, and she has some pretty interesting things to say about what happens, in the process!

 

(What’s “easy and fun.” What’s “hard.” She’s really honest about it.)

If you think detoxing is for weight loss, think again. Watch the short video to learn why some folks in the “ideal weight” category are shown to be at higher risk than those with lots of external body fat.

Detoxing is for anyone who lives where there’s car exhaust, processed food, chlorine and fluoride in the water, electronic devices in your energy field, or who experiences chronic stress. Robyn explains why.

It’s a strange, polluted world out there, and we have to get very smart, to eliminate higher-than-ever “toxic body burden.”

That’s where A (the input of toxic chemicals) minus B (the amount of chemical burden your elimination channels successfully excrete) = C (what’s left).

So, what do you do about the remainder? That overwhelm of toxicity, when kidneys, liver, lymphatic system, blood, and respiratory system can’t keep up?

An extremely well tested detoxification process radically reduces your disease risk.

Plus, following the program for 26 days robs your fat stores of the job they’re currently doing for you.

(Because your fat stores are hoarding toxic chemicals. Why? So they don’t get into critical organs and kill you. Your fat plays a very important role, especially around the middle of your body. And your body will keep hoarding fat, until you decrease that toxic body burden.)

I highly recommend this Video Masterclass, where Robyn explains that. She began researching detoxification when she was obese, very ill with 21 diseases, and her 1-year old was dying, in and out of hospitals, on constant bronchial drugs, steroids, and antibiotics. A “failure to thrive” baby below the 5th percentile, he clung to life and bounced in and out of emergency rooms.

What she discovered is in this Video Masterclass. Detoxing twice a year is how she became a competitive athlete, and ditched 70 pounds and all medications and disease states. She was dying, and on half a dozen drugs, diagnosed with 21 diseases, at 25. Now she’s 50 and free of all symptoms, diagnoses, and prescriptions.

She believes that aging isn’t so much about years, as much as toxic body burden overwhelming the immune system.

And I won’t be a spoiler, but there’s a really amazing story about what happened to her severely ill “Failure to Thrive” baby, in one of the masterclass videos as well.

Watch this short video to help you think through whether a period devoted to resting, rebuilding, and repairing your elimination organs and immune system is right for you.

If you’re intrigued by the idea of decreasing your own toxicity, take a deeper look, in the free video masterclass. And ask questions of Robyn after watching any of the videos. Enjoy!

Why Should I Detox?

Did you know that many reasons why people are sick or end up with inflammation and disease in the body is through unchecked build-up of toxins in the body? There are many different toxins that enter our bodies from different sources and disrupt and interfere with our internal endocrine system.

 

The endocrine system consists of a set of glands (thyroid, gonads, adrenal and pituitary) and the hormones they produce (thyroxine, estrogen, testosterone and adrenaline), which help guide the development, growth, reproduction, and behaviour of animals, including humans. Hormones are signalling molecules, which travel through the bloodstream and elicit responses in other parts of the body.

 

Known endocrine disruptors in the human body include:

Heavy Metals like lead, nickel, tin, arsenic, cadium, antimony and uranium. Heavy metals cause oxidative damage to your cells and deplete essential minerals your body needs. One of the big one’s is mercury from dental fillings.

 

Household Products that contain plasticizers such as Bisphenol A found in plastic bottles. Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including metal food cans, detergents, food, toys, and cosmetics.

 

Pharmaceuticals

Endocrine-disrupter compounds (EDC) are also found in pharmaceuticals. Protein Disulfide Isomerase (PDI) in the endoplasmic reticulum of all cells catalyses the rearrangement of disulfide bridges during folding of membrane and secreted proteins. As PDI is also known to bind various molecules including hormones such as estradiol and thyroxin, we considered the hypothesis that adverse effects of endocrine-disrupter compounds (EDC) could be mediated through their interaction with PDI leading to defects in membrane or secreted proteins.

 

The present data indicate that the tested EDCs could not only affect endocrine target cells through nuclear receptors as previously shown, but could also affect these and all other cells by positively or negatively affecting PDI activity. The substrate DiE-GSSG has been demonstrated to be a convenient substrate to measure PDI reductase activity in the presence of various potential EDCs. It will certainely be usefull for the screening of potential effect of all kinds of chemicals on PDI reductase activity. -Source: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0009507

 

Phytoestrogens

Another natural example of an endocrine disrupter is Phytoestrogens, which are naturally occurring substances in plants that have hormone-like activity. Examples of phytoestrogens are genistein and daidzein, which can be found in soy-derived products.

 

Emotional Toxins

Emotional toxicity from stressful situations can cause mental and physical impairment in the body, even witnessing a traumatic event on the television screen can cause emotional toxins in the body.

 

Electromagnetic Frequencies that mess with our body’s electromagnetic frequency and include cell /mobile phones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, power lines and telecommunication towers.

 

Environmental Pesticides, Herbicides and Flame Retardants

More than 50 pesticide active ingredients have been identified as endocrine disruptors by the European Union and endocrine disruptor expert Theo Colborn, PhD. –Source: https://www.beyondpesticides.org/resources/pesticide-induced-diseases-database/endocrine-disruption

A huge number of chemicals have been identified as endocrine disruptors, among them several pesticides. Pesticides are used to kill unwanted organisms in crops, public areas, homes and gardens, and parasites in medicine.  -Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3138025/

 

PBCs

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are a broad group of chemicals that includes 209 aromatic chlorinated hydrocarbons used for products ranging from fluorescent light fixtures to coolant fluids inside parts of consumer electronics. Short-term exposure to large amounts of PCBs can cause liver damage; the effects of smaller concentrations can be more subtle, affecting the reproductive development of children of exposed mothers. -Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1480494/

 

The potential for human exposure to PCBs still exists, however, because they persist in air, soil, and water sediments for many years. Additionally, they are also found in older transformers, capacitors, fluorescent lighting fixtures, electrical devices, and appliances that are still in use.

 

Dioxin and Dioxin-like Compounds (DLCs)

Dioxins and dioxin-like compounds (DLCs) are compounds that are highly toxic environmental persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

 

DLCs are unintended by-products of combustion. Combustion sources can be of anthropogenic (e.g., waste incineration) or natural origin (e.g., forest fires). Industrial (e.g., paper and chemical manufacturing) and biological processes also contribute to DLC production, although in smaller quantities.

 

Nutritional supplementation is a powerful and effective way to detox your system but before you rush out and buy different detox vitamins, minerals and herbs, you need to know the different grades of nutritional supplements available in the marketplace: Pharmaceutical Grade, Medical Grade, Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade.

 

Pharmaceutical Grade is the highest quality grade of vitamins and supplements meaning the purity; dissolution and absorption meet the highest regulatory standard verified by an independent party. Pharmaceutical grade vitamins and nutrients may be available without a prescription, but they are typically sold by licensed health care professionals.

 

Medical Grade vitamins and nutrients are also high-grade supplements but may not meet all the standards of pharmaceutical grade supplements. Prenatal vitamins normally fall into this category.

 

Cosmetic or Nutritional Grade supplements are typically sold in health food stores, chemists and, readily available on supermarket shelves. These supplements may not always be tested for absorption, dissolution or purity. Additionally, these supplements do not always have the same concentration of active ingredients as what is listed on the label.

 

You may or may not be aware that 98% of supplements readily available are of cosmetic grade… not even close to pharmaceutical grade.

 

One line of powerful and very effective nutritional supplements is the Le-vel brand THRIVE line here https://brainspahealth.le-vel.com  The reason people are seeing amazing results when using THRIVE nutritional supplements, and why they cost a little more, is because they are pharmaceutical-grade, and only the highest quality nutritional ingredients are sourced.

Importance of Mitochondria in Your Body-Gut Health

Importance of Mitochondria in Your Body-Gut Health

The gut has been often called the second brain but new research is indicating that it may be the first brain. Your gut feeds your body and brain and can be beneficial or detrimental (dependent on what you put in it) to your overall heath including mood, energy, motivation, mental clarity and focus, weight and even disease in the body… if your gut ain’t right… you ain’t right!

 

That is why it is vital that you are supplementing your diet with high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements… because on the account of mineral depleted soil and erosion,  fast foods, processed foods, sugary foods and drinks, and environmental factors… we are just not getting all the nutrients our body crave and need in our diets today.

 

Gut microbiota (formerly called gut flora) is the name given today to the microbe population living in our intestine. Some of the functions are:

 

  • It helps the body to digest certain foods that the stomach and small intestine have not been able to digest.

 

  • It helps with the production of some vitamins (B and K).

 

  • It helps us combat aggressions from other microorganisms, maintaining the wholeness of the intestinal mucosa.

 

  • It plays an important role in the immune system, performing a barrier effect.

 

  • A healthy and balanced gut microbiota is key to ensuring proper digestive functioning.

 

 

Taking into account the major role gut microbiota plays in the normal functioning of the body and the different functions it accomplishes, experts nowadays consider it as an “organ”. However, it is an “acquired” organ, as babies are born sterile; that is, intestine colonisation starts right after birth and evolves as we grow.

 

Although it can adapt to change, a loss of balance in gut microbiota may arise in some specific situations. This is called dysbiosis. Dysbiosis may be linked to health problems such as functional bowel disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, allergies, obesity and diabetes.

Before telling you how you can put your heart attack worries behind you, you need to understand WHY healthy older people have heart attacks in the first place… and it all starts with the little power plants inside your cells called mitochondria.

 

Mitochondria (might-o-con-dria) are responsible for turning food into cellular energy. They’re responsible for every ounce of energy created in your body… whenever you garden or golf… whenever you do something as simple as flex a muscle… the energy you do it with comes from millions of microscopic mitochondria.

 

You might think that since your entire body needs energy that the mitochondria are spread out evenly… but that’s not the case. Take your biceps for example…

 

Your biceps have about 200 mitochondria in every cell – that’s what it takes to flex your muscles, pick up your groceries, or raise your arm to scratch your nose. Not 200 mitochondria in your biceps…200 mitochondria in every single cell in your biceps.

 

But it takes 5,000 mitochondria in each heart cell to keep it pumping strong! Your heart is the biggest user of mitochondria, by far. And yet, as important as mitochondria are…

 

1 out of every 6 people has mitochondrial dysfunction!

 

And it turns out, as we get older, our mitochondria start to mutate. Our cells come under attack from toxins … from stress … but mostly, from free oxygen radicals. These toxins cause the mitochondria to mutate and die out.

 

Each time it happens it’s like microscopic blackout… Picture your heart full of millions of energy plants that are going dark, one by one… that’s exactly what happens as we age… the process takes years but eventually, your heart lacks the energy to even beat properly… it gets sluggish and irregular.

 

If you’ve ever felt your heart skip a beat or had a single powerful beat that scared you… you might be experiencing what happens when your heart doesn’t have enough energy. Without help, this happens to all of us.

 

But the process starts when you’re 30 and takes years before it’s a killer… and that’s the real reason teenagers generally don’t suffer heart attacks… their mitochondria haven’t been under attack long enough… not enough of them have mutated YET! So, their heart has plenty of energy to fire on all cylinders. So if you are not a teen… every year takes its toll.

 

As mitochondria die off, our heart doesn’t have the energy it needs to pump like it should… our heart doesn’t “fire” right… it gets sluggish… so, it must work harder to try and keep blood flowing to your arteries.

 

Your heart is like any other muscle – it grows when it’s overworked… so, your heart becomes enlarged. Then it takes on excess fluid, straining itself even more until finally, blood backs up in your lungs and other vital organs… and that’s called Congestive Heart Failure, or CHF.

 

Five million Americans have CHF and there’s a half million new cases every year… and CHF is nasty. It leaves you short of breath, tired, and weak… your legs, ankles, and feet swell… your heart beats funny… and you pick up a cough that won’t seem to go away.

 

Over time, Congestive Heart Failure will kill you if left untreated. And I’ve been told it feels like you’re drowning… but it’s slow… so you have this horrible feeling for months.

 

Young people don’t get normally suffer from CHF because they still have plenty of mitochondria to keep the heart pumping.

 

 

 

The OTHER Reason Teenagers Don’t Get Heart Attacks

 

Have you heard about “good cholesterol” and “bad cholesterol”? The good cholesterol is called HDL (High Density Lipoprotein – lie-po-pro-teen). HDL sweeps gunk out of your arteries.

 

The bad cholesterol is called LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein). LDL sticks to the walls of your arteries and blocks them up.

 

But that’s only half the story…

 

After all, teenagers eat a pile of that stuff… and they aren’t dropping dead on the ground with blocked arteries. As it turns out, LDL (bad) cholesterol doesn’t grab on to the walls of your arteries… and it doesn’t block the blood flow to the heart… not by itself anyway.

 

In young people, LDL cholesterol particles pass through the arteries, like a hot knife through butter. It simply doesn’t cause kids any problems. But as we get older, something changes… our LDL particles start to oxidate (rust).

 

And as LDL particles rust, that’s when they get stuck to our artery walls. The rust builds up, and causes heart attacks. How does this happen? Well, it’s not exactly rust. Rust is the term for what happens when iron meets free oxygen radicals and oxidizes.

 

But lots of other things besides iron oxidize too. When you slice an apple in half and leave it and it goes brown is an example of oxidation. But you don’t want oxidation on your LDL particles… because that’s what turns them into deadly plaque…

 

And it’s oxidation that mutates and kills off your Mitochondria too. If it’s oxidation that causes plaque, and it’s oxidation that kills your energy-producing mitochondria… it makes sense to stop oxidation dead in its tracks… so how do we do that?

 

The human body is colonized by a vast number of microbes, collectively referred to as the human microbiota. The link between these microbes and our health is the focus of a growing number of research initiatives, and new insights are emerging rapidly.

 

Your first step to improving your gut health is to remove sugar, alcohol, wheat products, and fast foods and processed foods (most contain sugar under different guises) from your diet. If possible, eat certified organic wholefoods, fruit and vegetables (we want to avoid additives, pesticides and herbicides that may still be present). Try this for a month and you will be amazed on how much better you feel.

The second step is to supplement your diet with high-quality; pharmaceutical-grade supplements that contain not only the essential vitamins and minerals but also prebiotics, probiotics, enzymes, and amino acids, which are all essential for maintaining good gut health and help feed your good microbiota and guard against two common forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

-Source: https://www.nature.com/articles/nature11582

 

Another very powerful supplement for gut health is Coenzyme-Q10 (CoQ10).

 

CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant and is much better at keeping LDL from turning into plaque than Vitamin E is https://www.emoryhealthcare.org/heart-vascular/wellness/heart-failure-statistics.html

 

CoQ10 isn’t some foreign chemical… it’s already produced in every cell of your body. Not only does CoQ10 keep oxidation at bay… it’s the fuel that helps mitochondria turn food into energy.

 

CoQ10 functions in the mitochondria, the “powerhouse” of the cell, to assist in making energy (called adenosine triphosphate or ATP) from carbohydrates and fats.

 

CoQ10 primarily acts as an antioxidant in the heart and is involved in the synthesis of energy, but it also has other important functions inside the mitochondria such as stabilizing membranes. CoQ10 protects the “bad” LDL cholesterol that is implicated in atherosclerosis from oxidizing. Because of CoQ10’s role in oxidative stress, energy production and stabilization, it is useful in preventing damage to the heart during periods of stress.

 

CoQ10 levels have been shown to be depleted in patients with a variety of heart conditions and in those taking cholesterol-lowering statin drugs. Research of CoQ10 spanning over 30 years shows potential for use in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease in these patients.

-Source: https://www.nutritionexpress.com/showarticle.aspx?articleid=786

 

But when you hit about 30, you start to lose CoQ10. – http://www.liveinthenow.com/article/anti-aging-supplement-profile-coq10

 

The fact is, you’ll lose up to about 72% of your CoQ10 as you near old age. – http://www.lifeextension.com/Vitamins-Supplements/item01733/Super-Ubiquinol-CoQ10-with-BioPQQ

 

And if you take statins, your CoQ10 levels dip even faster. Statins alone lower CoQ10 levels by a whopping 40%! – http://www.lifeextension.com/Vitamins-Supplements/item01733/Super-Ubiquinol-CoQ10-with-BioPQQ

 

If you are looking for powerful pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements that provide high-quality pre and probiotics, enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, Co-Q10 plus a whole range of other vitamins, minerals, and herb and plant extracts, then you need to look no further than the THRIVE line of supplements

Stress, Lack of Energy and Adrenal Fatigue…

We live in an age of where chronic stress is fast becoming the major contributor fatigue, brain fog, ailments and pain in the body and weight gain… and in many cases… under-weight issues.

 

It is estimated that up to 90% of visits to a doctor involves stress. Stress about our relationships… our family… our children… and our health. And throw in workplace and environmental stress and you have a toxic minefield.

 

 

But the most important thing that no one is telling you is that fatigue and lack of focus may very well be adrenal fatigue. Largely the result of mental, physical and emotional stress… along with poor nutrition and lifestyle… adrenal fatigue is fast becoming an invisible epidemic.

 

And with our modern busy lives, it often feels like its never-ending battle, trying to eat well and live a balanced lifestyle.

 

Nutrient deficiencies are real! Many of us have low levels of selenium, vitamin D, vitamin E and low levels of the B vitamins, especially vitamin B12.

 

Some powerful supplements for stress-relief, anxiety and depression include; Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10), 5-HTP, Quercetin, L-Tryptophan, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), Taurine, Glycine, L-Phenylalanine, Ashwagandha Extract, Bacopa Monnieri Extract, Valerian Root Extract, Passion Flower Extract, Hops Extract, Chamomile Extract, Melatonin, L-Theanine, Skullcap Extract.

 

I also want you to remember that stress is not just caused by external factors, but can also be self-induced due to our thought patterns like negative self-talk or perfectionism.

 

Stress can cause a myriad of symptoms in the body including feeling tired all the time, lack of energy, pain in the body (particularly the lower back), chronic fatigue, hormone imbalance, mood swings, hot flushes, aching joints, and the list goes on…

 

The way you think also has a tremendous impact on how you view and function in the world. It can impact your stress levels, your metabolism, your hormones, and even your heart health.

 

Your mind can get stuck in emotional ruts… negative habits and belief patterns of thinking that may have made sense at one time in your life but have now become outdated and lead to thoughts and actions that no longer support your well-being.

 

Signs of poor adrenal function may include the following:

  • Regularly feeling overwhelmed
  • Feeling tired despite adequate sleep
  • Difficulty getting up in the morning most days
  • Lack of energy and motivation
  • Mental fog
  • Less enjoyment in life
  • Reduced ability in decision making
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Reduced productivity
  • Poor memory
  • Decreasing ability to handle stress
  • Slowed healing
  • Mild depression
  • Alternating diarrhoea/constipation
  • Low blood sugar
  • Craving for salty foods (“I just ate a whole bag of chips syndrome”)

Do any of these sound familiar?

 

The good news is… like so much of our personal health… it is a reversible condition (with the right steps and information). Hypnotherapy is a proven first step to taking back control of your life. My “clearing the decks” stress relief hypnotherapy session creates a clearer; more focused and motivated mind state to tackle other issues that are stopping you living a more powerful and fulfilling life.

Ultimate Weight Management & Stress Relief Program

We live in an age of where chronic stress is fast becoming the major contributor to weight gain (and weight loss), and chronic illness in our bodies. Stress about our relationships… our family… our children… and our health, and throw in workplace and environmental stress and you have a toxic minefield. And with our modern busy lives, it often feels like its never-ending battle, trying to eat well and live a balanced lifestyle.

 

 

And unfortunately, by only focusing on diet and/or exercise when trying to release weight, can lead to stagnant results and a lack of motivation that keep you stuck… preventing you from releasing weight… especially those stubborn bits in all the wrong places.

 

While diet and exercise are an important part of a weight release program, there are two other crucial important areas that you will need to look at if you are ever to succeed in your weight release or weight gain program. You will need to look at adequate nutrition, and the part that your emotional mind plays in the equation.

 

Firstly, due to over production and growth of food on the planet’s available soils, the soils of the world are fast becoming deficient in essential minerals and nutrients, and as a result, we are not getting the nutrition from the food we eat like our forefathers and mothers did. So unless you are sourcing or growing your own certified organic wholefoods you are probably not getting all the nutrition your body needs.

 

Therefore, it’s vitally important in this modern age to supplement with high quality and preferably pharmaceutical-grade vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, probiotics and antioxidants to ensure our bodies are getting the nutrition it craves. If you are feeding your body with the correct balance of quality nutrients then the hunger cravings, and the cravings for nutrition-less junk food, processed refined packaged foods and sugary foods will subside.

 

 

Secondly, if you’ve struggled and gone from one diet and/or exercise program to another, from low-carb to Paleo, from aerobics to boot camp… you’re likely to continue the trend UNLESS you get to the root of your weight issues… both excess weight and under-weight issues… and many times those issues lie in your unconscious emotional mind. Unless addressed, stress in our daily lives can accumulate and create emotional blockages (source) in the body that show up (symptoms) as skin conditions, sickness, illness, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, chronic pain… and weight gain or weight loss.

 

The challenge is that the ability to eat well, exercise, and feel safe releasing weight are all run unconsciously in your emotional mind, and if your emotional mind’s belief is that it is not safe to release weight, and you do not address why, then you are setting yourself up for failure. And these negative emotional beliefs create what we call emotional blockages in the body.

 

Fortunately, hypnotherapy is a fast and powerful way to access your unconscious emotional mind and remove these stress-related emotional blockages, and adjust or eliminate any habits, patterns or beliefs that are no longer serving you. In our program we also use powerful specific therapeutic massage, designed to remove the emotional blockages (think stubborn fat) from your body.

 

Paul Holcroft and Khloe Syllebranque working together have created the Ultimate Weight Management & Stress Relief Program. A program designed for under-weight and excess-weight management success. This newly designed holistic program features specialized hypnotherapy, remedial massage and lifestyle changes for everyone wanting to bring their body back into balance.

 

Not only is this program a new approach to weight management issues, it also addresses other stress related issues including skin conditions, self-confidence and self-esteem issues, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, chronic fatigue, nagging pain and chronic pain in the body. Each person is consulted and assessed on an individual basis so as to ascertain the best possible approach to each individuals needs.

 

Your first consultation is free and is an informal meeting over coffee to discuss your individual needs from the program, and to ascertain whether the program is the best step forward for you at this time.

 

If you have tried everything else and are serious about getting to the source of your issues and bringing your body back into balance then the Ultimate Weight Management & Stress Relief Program is for you. Call or message us now for a free initial informal consultation on 0424 671 411 or PM us through Facebook and begin the journey back to ultimate health.

 

BRAINWASHING Are You Being Subconsciously Programmed?

BRAINWASHING Are You Being Subconsciously Programmed?

From the desk of Dr. Robert Anthony

I understand what I am about to say may sound crazy to you, but allow me to suggest the possibility that you have been totally brainwashed and you have unknowingly become your own worst enemy.

In fact, this is exactly what is happening to millions of people. And most likely, you are one of them.

 

What I am talking about is the SUBLIMINAL and SUBCONSCIOUS programming you are getting – programming that is imprinted on your subconscious without your knowledge.

 

I am not saying there is an organized conspiracy to program your mind. The people that are spreading these negative messages don’t even know they are doing it!

 

The problem is as you are exposed to these mind viruses, you are likely to be infected. Just as exposure to raw sewage can cause you to be infected with germs, microbes and other nasty things, prolonged exposure to the media will infect your mind with many nasty viruses. Society spends billions of dollars to protect us from biological and computer viruses. Yet a mind virus can be the most dangerous of all.

 

One of the best things you can do to prevent mind viruses is stop following the news. Don’t watch TV, don’t listen to “talk” radio, don’t read newspapers or magazines that have the news in them. Why? Because they all make their money by selling fear, lack, scarcity and limitation. Bad news is what sells.

 

Open the average newspaper and you will see that 90% or more of what you read is negative news. The percentage is about the same for radio and TV.  Do you really believe it is important to find out how many houses burnt down, how many people were robbed or killed in your city, state or another country? Do you really need to be reminded of the economic situation every day?  Being exposed to all this negativity creates a negative view of the world and negative thought patterns in your mind.

 

When I tell people to skip the news, they invariably ask, “How will I know if there is a major world tragedy or natural disaster heading my way or terrorists striking near me?” Trust me. You will know about all the big stuff you need to know. Let’s face it, the vast majority of your friends and neighbours follow the news so they can do the watching and reading for you. You still won’t be able to escape it completely because most restaurants and shops now have the TV news on all day long. So if something major happens, you will know about it.

Are You Investing in Your Health?

We are all willing to work hard and invest our time and money into buying a home, a new car, new clothes, new furniture and the latest new phone or gadget… We also invest time with our partners, children and family… but what about investing in us… in our health and wellbeing?

 

While all those things are important… without your mental and physical health they mean nothing. If you are not physically and mentally the best you can be, how can you give your loved ones the type of attention you want to shower on them…? When your mind and body is fatigued other stuff begins to get in the way.

 

If you are not taking care of your mind… feeding it with positive empowering thoughts, beliefs, patterns and habits… and if you are not empowering your body with the right nutrition and physical exercise you are fighting a losing battle… and in the end you just burn out… you no longer have the energy to do things… and fall into negative thought patterns, which can lead to anxiety and depression… and your body begins to create aches and pains and you begin to gain weight…

So how do you fix it? The first thing you must do is stop worrying about anything external from your self… now I do not mean be selfish and self-centred… bus as we have already mentioned… if we are not functioning at our best… then how can we expect to be able to help and support others… to provide adequately for our families? Get you mentally and physically right and everything becomes easier…

 

The first question you want to ask yourself is are you eating right and getting all the nutrition your body and mind needs for optimal performance? If you are not sure then you need to start really thinking about what you are putting into your mouth… ask yourself… while this food may taste fantastic is it going to nourish me… or is it just dead food.

 

Are you taking nutritional supplements on a daily basis…? And we are not talking about the cheap multivitamins and minerals regularly available on your supermarket or chemist shelves… w e mean a powerful effective quality nutritional supplement program that covers all the bases; vitamins, minerals, probiotics, enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants. If not then you need to get onto one now.

 

And do not kid yourself that you will get all you need from the food you eat. Our soils are so depleted of natural minerals and nutrients, it makes it near on impossible to get all the nutrients we need from the food we eat… even if you eat only organically grown food.

    Eliminate Pain and Stress with Hypnotherapy

The next step is to address your stress levels. Latest research has shown that stress is a major factor in pain, illness and disease in the body. We are constantly bombarded with stress on a daily basis through relationship stress, family stress, workplace and schoolyard stress, environmental stress and media stress through our TVs and social media sites.

 

These constant stresses build up and eventually create emotional and psychological blockages in our bodies. These emotional and psychological blockages are the source of a lot of the pain in our bodies… even long-term chronic pain. Add to that the stress of our bodies trying to deal with all the toxins created by these stresses and you have a toxic bombshell… no wonder our populations are becoming obese.

 

Stress release methods like yoga, meditation, mindfulness, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and emotional freedom technique (EFT) are all useful ways to handle stress in our lives, but by far the fastest and most effective way is through hypnosis, and results can often be achieved in just one session.

Are You Holding onto Pain?

What causes pain in our bodies? We know that knee and joint pain is a condition in which a tendon and or its ligaments become irritated and inflamed, causing pain and tenderness around a joint. The condition can occur in any of the body’s tendons, but is most common in the knees, ankles, elbows, shoulders, heels and wrists…

 

We also know that when muscles become stressed and tense they tend to tighten up, restricting movement, and can cause acute pain, even throwing other parts of the body out of balance to compensate…

 

So when we injure ourselves inflammation and swelling takes place, which is part of the body’s protective process, and the body immediately sends an emergency message to the brain (pain) that something is not right and instructs all our internal healing processes to go to work to heal the affected area.

 

But what happens when the area is healed but the pain persists… sometimes for years… and all the treatments and pain killers just don’t seem to work? So what if I suggested to you that the treatments and pain killers are not working because you are treating the symptom not the source of your pain.

 

You see the greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It has been said that it only takes only 6-8 weeks for pain to dissipate, even after a major injury… so much of the pain we experience in our bodies is not injury or surgery related… it is an emotional blockage created when our unconscious emotional mind runs its programs unchecked.

 

This type of pain is always some form of non-acceptance, some form of resistance to what is… and it stores itself as an emotional pain blockage in our bodies. So the pain in your body can be caused as a result of stress in your life… family stress, relationship stress, workplace or schoolyard stress, and environmental stress.

 

Emotional stress blockages in the body can also be caused by a traumatic event in your life that has not been resolved. The body sends a message to the brain and the brain creates pain somewhere in your body… and sometimes it moves around to get your attention. When this happens and you get treatments or pain killers… or even surgery for the pain… it doesn’t work because you are dealing with the symptom of your pain not the source.

 

THE EMOTIONAL PAIN PATH

  1. External & Internal Stress – Physical & Psychological Activity – Signals Sent to Brain
  2. Changes to Nervous System – Reduction of Blood Flow – Oxygen Deprivation
  3. Inflammation – Muscle, Nerve & Tendon Pain – Weight Gain or Weight Reduction

 

Stress and negative thoughts create emotional blockages in the body which mainly manifest as either pain or fat storage… or sometimes both… stored somewhere within the body… It can also cause weight reduction (anorexia and bulimia).

 

On the conscious thinking mind level, the resistance is some form of judgement you have made, and on the unconscious emotional mind level, it is some form of emotional negativity.

 

These manifestations of the emotional blockages, pain and fat storage, are the “symptoms” of the emotional blockage… not the source. This is why diet and exercise programs, and traditional pain treatments from a physiotherapist or chiropractor, or strong prescription drugs sometimes do not work… they are all working on the symptom… not the source, which is the psychological or emotional blockage… and they operates on an unconscious level in the emotional mind.

 

Emotional pain and stress are the main causes of physical pain and disease in the body. Emotional negativity like self-pity, depression, resentment, anger, hatred, jealousy, feelings of rejection or unworthiness can all contribute to emotional pain blockages. Many people already know from their own experience how easily and quickly an intimate relationship can turn from a source of pleasure to a source of emotional and sometimes physical pain…

 

There are two levels to your pain… the pain that you create now… and the pain from the past that still lives on in your mind and in your body. This, of course, includes the pain and/or traumas you suffered as a child. The accumulated emotional pain is a negative energy field that occupies your body and mind… and it’s very real!

 

This emotional pain blockage does not want you to observe it for what it really is… because once you observe it, and feel its energy field within you… take your attention into it… the identification has been broken… a higher dimension of consciousness has come in armed with your inner guide…

 

Your emotional blockage wants to survive just like every other entity in existence and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. And when you identify with it, it rises up, takes over you, and then lives through you… by “becoming you”… but it needs to get its “food” from you…

 

It will attract and feed on that which resonates with its own kind of energy vibration… anything that creates further pain in whatever form… destructiveness, hatred, grief, sadness, emotional drama, violence, and even illness… pain can only feed on pain… pain cannot feed on joy or happiness… it finds it quite indigestible…

 

Once this emotional blockage has taken over you, you want more pain… you become a victim… or a perpetrator… you want to suffer pain… or you want to inflict pain… and sometimes both… there is really not much difference between the two…

 

The dilemma here is you are not consciously aware this battle between the conscious and unconscious mind is going on and will vehemently claim you do not want pain… but on an unconscious emotional level that is what has been happening… and if you look closely at your behaviour and thinking you will see they are designed to keep your pain persisting…

 

In order to remove persistent pain… to remove the emotional pain blockages from your body you must work on an unconscious level… and the most effective way is with hypnosis…

 

Is Your Thyroid Out of Balance?

Is Your Thyroid Out of Balance?

 

Telltale Signs that Your Thyroid may be out of Balance:

 

Fatigue: If you are getting plenty of regular sleep but still wake up tired it is possible that your thyroid hormone level may be low. If your mind is constantly active and you cannot seem to sleep at night then you may have an over-active thyroid (hyperthyroidism). Either way, your thyroid hormones may well be out of balance.

 

Anxiety & Panic Episodes: If you suffer from mood swings, anxiety, panic episodes or depression, this can also be an indication of a thyroid disorder (hyperthyroidism).

 

Brain Fog: If you get days where you feel as though you’re walking around in a fog all day, your thyroid may be out of balance.

 

How’s Your Poop? Often people with an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism) complain of constipation, and those with an over active thyroid (hyperthyroidism) have the opposite; diarrhoea or more frequent sloppy bowel movements.

 

Weight Management Issues: If you’re eating habits have not changed, you exercise regularly but still cannot seem to remove stubborn excess weight, the cause may be an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism).

 

3 Fatty Acids in Coconut Oil that Your Thyroid Craves

The unique medium-chain fatty acid profile of coconut oil is what makes it stand apart from all other oils and gives it the ability to help the body self-regulate (something it is quite able to do).

 

These fatty acids, including lauric acid (found in a mother’s breast milk), are small enough that they can be gobbled up by the mitochondria in the cells. Because of this, they provide immediate energy for the body.

 

Lauric acid is converted to monolaurin, which is a potent antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal substance. Because monolaurin is a monoglyceride, it can destroy lipid-coated viruses including measles, influenza, HIV, herpes and a number of pathogenic bacteria.

 

Another fatty acid that coconut oil contains is caprylic acid, also found in breast milk. Also known as octanoic acid, this saturated fatty acid has a number of health promoting properties and the innate ability to treat yeast-like fungus in the intestines.

 

Capric acid is present in very small amounts in goat’s milk and cow’s milk, but is abundant in tropical oils, including coconut oil.

 

It is a medium-chain fatty acid that has potent antimicrobial and antiviral properties. In the body, capric acid is converted to monocaprin, a form that can readily fight viruses, bacteria, and the yeast Candida albicans.

 

Because of this unique combination of fatty acids, coconut oil suppresses inflammation and repairs tissue while inhibiting microorganisms that cause the inflammation in the first place.

 

Polyunsaturated oils are the real enemy and many people still prefer to cook with expeller-pressed or solvent-extracted oils. If you cook with vegetable oil, it is time to stop. These oils are only increasing inflammation in your body. If you have reason to believe that your thyroid may be working only half time for you, make the switch today to organic cold-pressed coconut oil.

 

Not all coconut oil is created equal… and some are better than others. As was the case when coconut oil was used heavily in the food processing industry years ago, there is still a lot of refined coconut oil in circulation. Obviously, the more processed the oil, the less health benefits it possesses. –Source: http://pages.thealternativedaily.com/alerts-click-coconut-thyroid/

 

Other Natural Ways to Improve Thyroid Function

In addition to including coconut oil in your diet, try these other natural ways to balance your thyroid function.

 

  • Switch from iodized table salt to sea salt, as it has more minerals that help support better thyroid functioning.

 

  • Chronic stress is said to be one of the main triggers of hypothyroidism so practicing stress reduction techniques such as meditation and deep-breathing can help as can regular de-stress hypnotherapy sessions.

 

  • Follow a gluten-free diet has also been shown to improve thyroid function. Research has found a link between wheat allergies and thyroid disease.

 

  • Avoid chemicals like triclosan, which is commonly found in items like antibacterial soap, deodorant, lotions, and even in cutting boards.

 

  • .. this is especially important to correct thyroid function. Walking briskly for 30 minutes a day is a good place to start.

 

  • Supplement with probiotics, vitamins and minerals. Many natural herbs can also assist in weight management and bringing the body back into balance.

 

  • Take high-quality supplements, such as zinc, selenium, manganese, chromium, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E.
