One of Seven Pillars from my Cancer Health Coaching Program

One of the Pillars I use in my health coaching program is Emotional Cleansing of Negative emotion as a root cause of cancer. There is far too much science to back this stance up, so keep an open mind.Stanford psychiatrist, Dr. David Spiegel, was a skeptic when he began his study on the influence of negativity on breast cancer patients. He was shocked to discover that at the ten-year survival checkup, those women who included coaching in their lives survived twice as long as those who did not. You read that right…there was a 50% better survival rate by purging negative emotion. Another Yale research study found that cancer spread faster in women who had “repressed personalities.” They defined the word “repressed” as having intense feelings of hopelessness and not having the ability to express anger, fear, or other negative emotions. In other words, they bottled it all up inside ...(Read More)

Integrative approaches to stopping cancer.

It takes 10 to 12 years from one cancer cell to a tumor that has been fermenting in your body before it is seen on a PET scan, CAT scan, or an ultrasound. So, why isn’t the medical community using “The Cancer Profile” test, or the”onco blot” test which detects a protein that’s found on a cancer cell at a much earlier stage also the location of the cancer cell. The “onco blot” test has been  available since 2013. Dr. Connealy talks about Energy testing being the wave of the future. Traditional doctors have surgery, chemo, radiation and these do not treat stem cells or circulating tumor cells of cancer. Dr. Connealy’s video from the San Diego Integrative approach to cancer summit will provide information to help you make better decisions on your health.   https://s3.amazonaws.com/ctcc2014-360/CTCC+2014+-+Saturday+-+Dr.+Leigh+Erin+Connealy+-+Cancer+-+How+It+Works+and+How+You+Win-360.mp4  

Does young wheat grass contain gluten?

One of my clients that has been in my Health Coaching Program for 8 years voiced a concern over wheat grass juice being gluten free. So, I wanted to take a moment to share some light on the subject with all of my blog followers. Does Wheatgrass Contain Gluten? Some people become sick when they consume the elastic protein in wheat, barley and rye called gluten. Celiac disease causes a multitude of symptoms including gastrointestinal upset, rashes and brain fog, and can be linked to other diseases such as cancer, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Celiac sufferers must avoid all gluten for the rest of their lives. Wheatgrass grows from the seed of wheat, so it would seem like something celiacs should avoid. However, because it is a young version of the plant, the grass itself does not contain gluten. What Is Wheat Grass? Used primarily as a nutritional supplement, wheat ...(Read More)

Flat Belly Stop Eating This Protein

The gliadin protein in wheat is an opiate and highly addictive. Eat a slice of healthy whole grain wheat bread, and your blood sugar and insulin go sky-high. This in turn stimulates the growth of belly fat and increases inflammation. Gluten is a protein that forms in foods when two other proteins, gliadin and gluten combine. Foods containing gluten and gliadin proteins include wheat, barley and rye, and grains related to these such as spelt and kamut. In the early 1950s, Dr. Willem-Karel Dicke was born in 1905, in Dordrecht, Holland, and died Utrecht in 1962. Dr. Dicke was a Dutch pediatrician who pioneered the gluten-free diet as a cure for celiac disease. This diet remains the only true treatment for this condition, requiring patients to avoid all traces of gluten in foods consummation. Wheat The National Institutes of Health, in its brochure “Celiac Disease,” advises people following a gluten-free ...(Read More)

Amazing systemic enzymes that we begin losing after age 20…

Systemic enzymes are amazing. In fact, you might call them extraordinary, since they provide systemic health benefits. For those of us starting a new health regimen for the New Year, that’s exceptionally good news. As review, enzymes are proteins catalyzing every bodily chemical action. There are over 3,000 bodily enzymes—most of them proteolytic, or protein-eating, enzymes—and fall into three kinds of enzymes: food, digestive and metabolic/systemic enzymes. Food enzymes come from foods, particularly raw foods with their enzymes intact, while digestive enzymes help to digest food. Metabolic/systemic enzymes—while they may have some enzymes in common with digestive enzymes—work differently, going beyond the stomach, into the bloodstream and cells to work their amazingly healthy outcomes. Some systemic enzymes with particularly beneficial health effects are the pancreatic enzymes included in an important systemic enzyme called pancreatin. Others include: papain, a protein-cleaving enzyme from papaya and other plants. bromelain, a protease enzyme derived from the ...(Read More)

Knowing what is in our food is a complex problem

The problem is more complex than blaming any one person. As a Health and Wellness Coach, I spend many hours every week researching the food we eat. Just this week I spent several hours getting through the gatekeepers of a company. I wanted to know for my clients what part of the Agave plant they used and what they used as a processing method. I knew that one part of the agave plant processed one way would yield a low GI of 30 and another part of the agave plant processed another way would produce a high GI of 70. One would cause high blood sugar, heart disease along with speeding up the aging process and the other would produce low blood sugar,  anti aging i.e. slowing down the aging process, and a more healthy lifestyle. Having a job, kids and family where does a parent find the time to ...(Read More)
