August 25th, 2014Adrenal Burnout

Tara Pierce M.H.

 

One of the Adrenal glands main functions is acting as a buffer to stress. They do not differentiate between physical and mental stress and respond in the same way to both. Every type of stress influences these glands; injury, divorce, work, finances, diets, pain, excessive exercise, junk food, kids, spouse, menstruation and so on. It is easy to get stuck in a stress cycle and over work these glands into burnout. Burnout is defined as a major breakdown in the energy producing systems of the body. It goes far beyond fatigue and can be devastating to every aspect of one’s life.

 

The number one symptom of Adrenal Burnout Syndrome is exhaustion or chronic fatigue. Some other symptoms are cravings for sweets or attraction to stimulants, difficulty with digestion, weight gain around the belly leaving arms and legs thin, inability to cope with daily life, hypoglycemia or diabetes, changes in mood and personality, depression, fears and phobias, anxiety, lack of interest in appearance, loss of concentration, shortness of breath, dark circles around the eyes, puffiness in the face and edema in the feet, and loss of muscle tone, among others. Adrenal burnout can be triggered by a single severe stress but more often it occurs slowly after years of imbalance in life and inadequate nutrition.

 

Recovering from adrenal burnout involves dedication to re-evaluating one’s life and making the necessary lifestyle changes to decrease and even eliminate unnecessary stress. A good clean diet full of live, whole foods is essential as is using plenty of digestive enzymes to boost assimilation of nutrients. I would also recommend doing Dr. Christopher’s Extended Herbal Cleansewith the addition of the Heavy Mineral Bugleweed Formula. To treat the burnout specifically I would add Dr. Christopher’s Adrenal, Thyroid Maintenance, and Master Gland Formula’s. Recovery can take time, but the more dedicated you are to treating yourself right the quicker you will regain your energy and strength to feel like yourself again.

I recently had a friend ask for my help with some health issues she was having.  When she came by to visit, we started by discussing what she was eating on a daily basis.  She told me, “You’re going to think I’m terrible, I’m embarrassed to tell you what I eat.”  I assured her that I was not there to judge her, only to help her. Here is what her “food” choices for the day looked like.  She would start her day with a SlimFast shake (18 grams of sugar or 4.5 teaspoons of sugar), then she would have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (the peanut butter and jelly sandwich alone was 38 grams of sugar which equals 9.5 teaspoons of sugar), throughout the day she was consuming at least 3 - 24 oz. Pepsi’s (30.75 teaspoons of sugar).  If she was unable to sleep at night she would drink more Pepsi.  She then moved on to the ice cream, consuming 1 gallon every 3 days (28 teaspoons per day). She then figured that she had blown her whole day and started eating everything in sight, including her husband’s stash of King Size chocolate bars (6 teaspoons of sugar). She never ate dinner but would eat candy.

She was not sleeping, most likely because she was over-caffeinated and was on a sugar high.  She felt tired all the time and knew that her eating habits were out of control.  She didn’t know what she was going to do.  I started by explaining that everything she was consuming was overly processed and sugar laden and that her body was not getting any of the nutrients it so desperately needed.  Vegetables and fruits were not a part of her diet.  She asked what she could do, just one thing she could change.  I focused on starting simple and suggested that she wean herself off of the Pepsi first and replace it with water.  She suddenly announced that she needed to leave and I worried that I had offended her.

 

Five days after her abrupt departure I received a text from her stating that she had not had Pepsi in 4 days and she was consuming pure water in its place.  On day 8, I received a text stating that she had not had ice cream in 8 days. I kept her supplied with new recipes for salad dressings she could make herself, fresh food recipes and a lot of support.  I am so proud of her and her success.  She added large green salads and fresh fruits and veggies to replace what she had been consuming.  She has mentioned several times that she just isn’t hungry anymore and feels totally satisfied with her new lifestyle change and that she has never felt this good in her life.  She was concerned because her bowels were moving so frequently.  I assured her that she was finally having normal bowel movements because her body was releasing built up gunk that had accumulated over the past 60+ years and she was finally getting the fiber her body needed from the fresh fruits and vegetables. Her stomach is half the size it was and she has lost 15-20 pounds in 8 weeks.  She is also concentrating on getting more exercise.  She often comments on how great real food tastes and how on other plans she had tried in the past, she always felt deprived.  Now she eats until she is satiated and feels great.

 

Our next step will be to add some herbal formulas such as the Dr. Christopher’s Vitalerbs and cleansing formulas such as the Dr. Christopher’s Lower Bowel Formula and then move on to cleansing the rest of her system.  She is happy to share her story and is proud of the fact that she is no longer being controlled by her food addictions.  When I asked her what had helped the most, she stated that she “had no idea where to start and what to eat in place of the “foods” she had been consuming.”  My advice is to plan ahead and find new recipes to try.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  Like my friend, start with something you think you can let go of and move on to the next step and then the next. I was once counseled by a dear friend that I needed to stop trying to reach the top of the mountain in one giant leap and to concentrate on taking one step and then focus on the next step and then the next.  Surround yourself with supportive people and remember to reward yourself for your accomplishments. I checked back with my friend yesterday and she reported that she is “doing great but I don’t know what to do!”  I didn’t quite understand.  ”Well, I can’t sit around knitting for the rest of my life.  I just don’t know what to do now that I feel so good!”

 

You can take control of your life and your health, one step at a time.

January 27th, 2014Living Gratefully

Mishelle Knuteson M.H.

 

November seems to help people focus more on gratitude. In fact, I would say that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because of the reflection on things I am thankful for and being with family. Although, to have a joy filled and successful life, we should be focused on gratitude every day, not just at Thanksgiving. I heard a quote by leader and mentor Tim Kelly, “To live a joyful life you must become an expert at gratitude.”

The people that I reflect on that emanate a joyful spirit, frequently express gratitude and often during the most challenging circumstances. Dr. John R. Christopher is one among many that I recognize as an expert at gratitude.  His son David Christopher expressed in the book, An Herbal Legacy of Courage, “My father’s abiding happiness seems even more exceptional when I reflect on all the reasons he had to be unhappy…yet I cannot erase from my mind’s eye the gentle kindness of my father’s perpetual smile.”  As a student of the School of Natural Healing, I hear the gratitude expressed often throughout his lectures.

One of my favorite books states, He who receives all things with thankfulness will be made glorious and the things of this earth will be added unto him, even a hundred fold and more. Receiving all things with thankfulness and gratitude can be challenging at times unless we train ourselves to be an expert at gratitude.

I have learned a tool that I want to share with you that has helped me along the path in changing my focus to gratitude. Much of being grateful is a mind game - training our minds to see and focus on that bigger picture. Our minds are divided, the left side of the brain is more logical and the right side is more creative. So to create more harmony and change, these two sides of the brain need to connect. The tool I learned is to feed the left side of the brain first so that the right side will open and create more.

The left side of the brain loves facts and figures, so one thing we can do to satisfy this side of the brain is to give it a list of things we are grateful for so it can see concrete evidence. By creating a gratitude list, a long list that keeps growing, we give the evidence that stimulates the left brain. It can see how much is there which allows the right side of the brain to kick in and create even more, opening up much larger vision and focus.

Keeping this list visible, reviewing it daily and continually adding to it helps you to transform your way of seeing life through more gratitude. I want to thank you for letting me share a tool that is working for me. I’m grateful to all those that read my articles and I hope that they inspire and help you to live a more happy, healthy and fulfilled life.

October 3rd, 2013Summer Sun

Jo Francks MH

Humans have had to put up with living in the sun for all time. It’s amazing that we survived this far and didn’t all die from skin cancer considering that sunscreen has only been around for a small percentage of the time humans have been on the earth under the sun. With summer upon us we may want to go outdoors and be subject to the sun’s rays. Too much exposure all at once will result in painful sunburn. It is recommended by Dr. Christopher that gradual sun exposure is the best. Start with 5 to 10 minutes at a time and increase the amount of time every few days.

 

Our skin produces vitamin D from the suns UVB rays. SPF 8 sunscreen blocks 95% of UVB rays but does not block the UVA rays which some studies have shown may cause melanoma skin cancer. Interestingly vitamin D helps prevent melanoma cancer. Keep in mind that after the skin starts to turn pink it no longer manufactures vitamin D. Therefore it is not possible to overdose on vitamin D when it’s produced by the skin or from a natural food source. Most individuals are actually deficient in Vitamin D so a little bit of sun is beneficial. A little bit of sun sounds great, but what if someone is planning a day at the beach, pool or lake? Skin that is already tanned is the best protection, but if that is not possible or a person has skin that just won’t tan, then some precaution must be used. It may be necessary for some people to use sunscreen. There are natural sunscreens which use minerals such as zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as a barrier on the skin to block the sun’s rays (it is recommended that your own research be done on the safety of these products). Some of the chemicals in regular sunscreen have been shown to be carcinogenic.

 

This article is not intended to encourage you to stay out of the sun. On the contrary! Please go out in the sun and enjoy it. Walk barefoot on the grass. Breathe deeply. Swim in fresh water. Work in the garden. Connect with the earth and get grounded. Have fun! Chill out! Drink some herbal tea and relax. It’s summer!

What if one does get sunburned? That’s the time to use the wonderful gifts provided by nature. Here are a few suggestions on what to do for mild sunburn.

1. Apply Aloe Vera Gel

2. Use a fomentation of a tea made with comfrey or calendula or both and add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to each cup of tea.

3. Apply Complete Tissue and Bone oil or ointment.

4. Apply Beauty Facial Cream.

5. Use Dr. Christopher’s Burn Paste (equal parts wheat germ oil, raw liquid honey, and comfrey leaf or root powder or Complete Tissue and Bone powder)

A few people have told me that when they changed their diets to the Mucusless Diet, taught at The School of Natural Healing, they didn’t experience sunburn as much as they did before the dietary changes.

This is a wonderful time of year and there is an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables available. Hopefully they are growing organically in your own garden. Have a happy healthy summer!

September 30th, 2013Hooray for Whole Oat Groats!

Doreen Spackman MH

Love the spring! I just got back from a bike ride and I am enjoying a bowl of whole oat groats with red quinoa and chia seed for breakfast, YUM! Whole oat groats are the grain with the outer husk removed, (I think horses like the husk but I prefer it removed). They look similar to kernels of wheat, but what you don’t see packed in the tiny seed, is the fiber-rich bran, the nutritious germ, and the endosperm all intact. Each of these layers provide important nutrients, are low in fat, and cholesterol free. Oats have been linked to assisting diabetes by stabilizing blood sugar levels, lowering risk of heart disease, certain cancers and many other health problems.

The fiber is both soluble and insoluble. The soluble fiber which dissolves in water assists with lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) as it moves through the digestive tract. In fact researchers have found just 2 servings of oats a week for 6 weeks can lower your LDL by 5.6%. The insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water so it absorbs many times its weight as it moves through the digestive tract, reducing carcinogens and keeping the bowels moving for easier elimination.

If you are concerned about getting more nutrition into your daily diet, consider this. Oat groats are a great whole food source that is high in protein, omega 3 and omega 6, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper manganese and selenium, plus vitamin E, K, and B’s. With this little wonder kernel there is no need to get isolated vitamins and minerals through supplements. You can give a big boost to your nutrition and keep a steady flow of energy as you enjoy whole oat groats. Remember to low heat them so you can receive all of the nutrients possible.

The low heating method explained by Dr. Christopher in his 3 Day Cleanse and Mucusless Diet book is essential to retaining nutrients and changing grains from an acid to an alkaline state. Low heating has been so beneficial to those who have digestive problems because they have previously boiled the grains as most people are taught to do. As a result they have experienced a great deal of discomfort. When they use the thermos method the important nutrients are saved and they have no problems at all, in fact, they have felt more energized and eat it daily for more vitality.

Unlike oatmeal, whole oat groats are the real deal and are a gluten free option for enjoying grains.

Have a Happy and Healthy Day!

The history of oats is fascinating! Did you know that oat seeds were found in the Egyptian tombs 2000 B.C? If you would like to read more about the history of oats please follow this link.

December 29th, 2011Move That Body!

by Yvonne Lunt Salcido MH, Holistic Iridologist

Are you feeling the after holiday guilt from overeating, lack of exercise, and maybe eating things not as healthy as you should? How would you like to guarantee a good night sleep every night, be your perfect weight, and have more energy? Our bodies are designed to work best when we are physically active. Now is a great time to evaluate your exercise and nutrition habits. Only about 12% of Americans report exercising vigorously for more than 20 minutes, three times per week and the actual number is reported closer to 3%.

A few benefits of exercise include: cancer prevention, improves cognitive function, helps to overcome the negative effects of a poor diet, promotes the creation of new nerve cells (neurons) in the brain, enhances the entire nervous system’s plasticity (helping to prevent injuries to the body), has a protective effect on the brain as people age, has positive effect on mental health especially with fighting depression and anxiety.

There are three types of exercise the body needs; Cardiorespiratory, Strength Training (Muscular Strength & Endurance), and Flexibility Training.

Cardio-respiratory Exercise, involves continuous, rhythmic movements of large-muscle groups, such as rebounding (cellersizer), walking, jogging, biking, aerobics, dancing and hiking. Benefits include: the heart pumps more blood per beat, slower resting heart rate, volume of blood increases, tissues receive more blood, the bodies temperature regulates better, blood pressure decreases, improvement in the body’s chemical systems (mainly in the liver and in the muscles). A healthy heart endures stress, emergencies and the wear and tear of life. This needs to be done 3-5 days a week.

Strength Training, sometimes called weight training or resistance training decreases the risk of osteoporosis and maintains muscle mass and function. This greatly improves the quality of life and prevents injuries. Muscular Strength uses the amount of force a muscle can produce in a single effort. Strong muscles are critical for everyday life, such as climbing stairs. Strong muscles help to keep the spine in proper alignment, preventing leg and back pain, and maintaining support for good posture. Muscular Endurance is teaching a muscle to hold a contraction and resist fatigue. This is critical for good posture and injury prevention especially to the back. Sign up for a class or check with your local gym to teach you the basics to avoid injury first. After you learn the basics you can do it at home. This needs to be done 2-3 nonconsecutive days per week using all the major muscle groups. Examples are bicep curls, abdominal curls, push-ups, and bench presses.

Flexibility Training, is teaching the body to have the ability to move the joints through their full range of motion. Pain free, flexible joints are important to good health and lifestyle. Inactivity causes us to become stiff and inflexible as we age. Stiffness leads to improper posture that can stress muscles and joints. An example of a great flexibility program is yoga. Flexibility exercises can be done daily and should be done at least 2-3 days per week exercising all the major joints.

Most importantly, find something to move your body that is fun and that you enjoy. Think of it as play time! Be creative, change things around, maybe invite a friend, but be consistent and maintain a healthy habit!

June 29th, 2011Thoughts and Words Create

By Mishelle Knuteson M.H., R.E.T.

Growing up, I often heard on the play ground, in elementary school, the saying:

“Sticks and stones may break my bones
but words will never hurt me.”

The funny thing was that whenever I would sing that out, I would still feel the hurt inside. I tried to not let the other kids know how much their words really had hurt me.

Words are powerful. We can change our lives in moments by changing our thoughts and words. Thoughts are the seeds that we plant and words often carry forth the actions of our thoughts. God created the universe first through a thought and then with the spoken word, “Let there be Light.”

Our internal dialogue has enormous effect on every aspect of our lives; physically, emotionally mentally and spiritually. Dr. David Pesek, teacher of the School of Natural Healing’s Iridology course, had this to say about thoughts and our health, “There is always a physical reason (for poor health) but thought and emotion always come first. No one has a physical condition without a thought and emotional relationship to it. It just doesn’t happen any other way.”
Has this ever happened to you? You have a friend come up to you and ask if you are doing OK; they say that you look tired. Then you find yourself really feeling tired when you hadn’t noticed it before. Or maybe you are talking to someone and you say something like, “I always wake up at 3:00 in the morning and can’t get back to sleep.”  Sure enough, it always happens night after night.
Words to be most especially aware of follow the statement “I am”. You are making a decree and your body, either on a emotional or physical level, will do it’s best to create that declaration. Just listen to the difference in the wording, “I am a diabetic” opposed to “I am experiencing a diabetic condition.”

“Life is a game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy.”  Florence Shinn

We are constantly creating with our thoughts and words. To help us become more aware of our creation and live in better health, balance, and happiness here are a few tips:

  • Keep a journal and write down any negative thoughts and complaints so you can become more aware of them and re-frame them.
  • Write down what you say to people when you describe your health. Are you perpetuating what you don’t want? Come up with a more positive way to express your thoughts.
  • When you have a negative thought immediately say to yourself, “Cancel that” and restate what you want.

Decide now to break yourself from the bondage that negative thoughts and words create. What we focus our attention on is what we create; self fulfilling prophecy. Be a conscious creator and choose the thoughts and speak the words that are only focused on what you really want in life!

June 22nd, 2011Rapid Marathon Recovery

By Jerem Eyre

The running season is upon us, which means if you wanted to you could probably run a race every single weekend from now through November. With a marathon runner’s increase in mileage/training here is a great soreness and injury prevention method I learned on accident during my last marathon that resulted in the best marathon recovery ever.

My last marathon was number 8 for me, so I’ve been through the recovery period a few times before.  However, this was by far the easiest and fastest recovery I have ever had.  After each of the previous 7 marathons I was very, very sore the day after and could barely walk up or down (especially down) stairs at all.  The stiffness and soreness usually lasted about a week (or more) before it tapered off enough that I could begin running again regularly. However, I was surprised to find with my last marathon that I was hardly sore at all the day after.  My legs definitely felt it, but I could walk up and down stairs easily and I was even running while playing with my kids the very next day; something totally unthinkable on all previous marathons.  I went for a 4 mile run on Wednesday just 4 days after the marathon and ran another 4 miler on Friday. To my shock, both runs felt totally normal, with no soreness, or stiffness at all.  I could hardly believe I actually felt great on those runs.

So what was different from this marathon and the previous marathons?  I had been taking a lot more of Dr. Christopher’s Complete Tissue and Bone formula in the build up to this marathon than I ever have in the past.  A couple months before the marathon, I severely cut my thumb with a saw while trimming a tree in my yard.  To try to heal it up I was taking A LOT of Complete Tissue and Bone every single day.  I was taking 8 capsules in the morning at breakfast, another 8 at lunch and another 8 capsules at dinner.  I did this for about 3 weeks then tapered off to 8 capsules in the morning with another 4 to 6 in the evening. (It healed up very nicely, by the way.)

I continued taking the Complete Tissue and Bone Formula right up to the marathon, and on the morning of the marathon I also took 8 capsules about an hour and a half before running.  That was the first time I’ve  taken the capsules right before the race.  I really wasn’t thinking about running while I was taking all those capsules, I was just trying to heal my thumb.  But the effect on my running and marathon recovery was simply amazing. The training I did was the same.  The way I actually ran the race was the same as I have done before.  I have used Complete Tissue and Bone while training before, but never even close to the amounts I used for this most recent marathon.  Also I’ve always used it after the fact to try to reduce soreness, but never had I used it as a preventative measure before the race.

That’s the only real difference - using Complete Tissue and Bone formula in the weeks leading up to the marathon and again the morning of the race.  The results - no soreness, no stiffness, running with my kids the very next day, and running out on the roads again the very next week as if nothing had happened… Incredible! The stuff works!  I can’t believe how great my legs felt so quickly afterwards.  I will definitely be repeating this with all future marathons.

By Jo Franks M.H.

One of the best ways to energize your body and get nutrition in quickly is to juice your fruits and vegetables.  The juice of the plant is the blood of the plant.  So by juicing you are also building your own blood.  Freshly made juice from your own juicer is definitely the best.  When you drink fresh juice, the nutrients are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and utilized by the body.  The rest of the plant is the fiber.  There are no nutrients or enzymes in the fiber.  Any pesticides or sprays are also left behind in the fiber*.  Nutrients from fresh juices get to cells within a few minutes. When we eat the fruits and vegetables we only absorb 30% of the nutrition from them and we use up a lot of energy digesting the food. When we juice the same fruits and vegetables we absorb 90% of the nutrients and it is absorbed into the bloodstream within minutes*.  The fresh juice contains the important enzymes that help digestion and build the body. Enzymes are the life force of produce. (*from the writings of Dr. Norman Walker)

Dr. Christopher’s Incurables Program is based around juicing to treat incurable diseases.  Each week on the incurables program one rotates between carrot juice the first week, apple juice the second week and grape juice the third week.  The full incurables routine is contained in the book Herbal Home Health Care, or Curing the Incurables, both by Dr. John R. Christopher.

Dr. Christopher has always had his patients do the Three Day Cleansing program followed by the Mucusless Diet.  The Three Day Cleanse gives the body the opportunity to rest and get rid of toxins that have been building up in the system over time. It is done by drinking 16 ounces of prune juice first thing in the morning and alternating 8oz of either apple, carrot or grape juice (make sure to use the same juice for the 3 days) and distilled water for the rest of the day. During this program you will also take 1 tablespoon of olive oil three times during the day.  Alternate the juice and water every half hour until about 8:00 p.m. repeat for two more days and begin the Mucusless Diet.  Complete instructions are contained in Herbal Home Health Care or the booklet The Three Day Cleansing Program.

If you don’t want to go as far as the Incurables program or the Three Day Cleanse, just add more fresh juices to your diet each day.  Fruit juices are very cleansing to the human body whereas vegetable juices are nourishing and building to the body. Fresh juices provide vital nutrition that is easily absorbed into the system.  Go ahead, try it!
