Food Sensitivities are Epidemic!

Food Sensitivity Testing is the number one test, patients ask me for.  I have done this one test on thousands of people.   This one test can get you on the right path to health and healing.  

Reasons people do this test is because they are suffering from a wide variety of symptoms. Symptom complaints can include things such as: chronic fatigue, brain fog, unexplained rashes, irritable bowel (constipation, diarrhea or both), gas, bloating, acid reflux, headaches, migraines, joint pain, weight issues, hormone imbalances, depression, sleep issues and more.

I have had many parents ask me to do this test on their children.  Why?  Because their young children are suffering from many of the symptoms I mentioned as well.  They have been to doctor to doctor and have no answers.

Why have so many people developed food sensitivities?  Wondering if you have a food sensitivity?  You may find this shocking, but everyone has food sensitivities…..it is just a matter how much they are affecting you. 

Now for the why….

Food sensitivities are epidemic.  One can speculate as to why this is.  There is strong scientific evidence that some of the reasons why may include: pesticides, herbicides, genetically modified foods, too much sugar, processed foods and additives.

Why does this one test help so much?  Because the gut is the epicenter to your health.  If you don’t have a healthy gut, your overall health will be compromised at some point.  You can do lots of things to improve your health, including a healthy diet, but if you are sensitive to the foods you are consuming, your symptoms may not go away.

If you take away the foods that are creating inflammation and destroying your immune system and gut health, you can begin to heal.  Ultimately you can begin to feel better and quit being so reactive to so many foods.

If you know others that are suffering as well, please pass this report on to them.

P.S.  If you want to do the test, you can email me atlaura@pathtohealthandhealing.com or you can schedule a free 15 minute discovery call by clicking here.

Natural Ways to Relieve Anxiety

Are you looking for natural ways to relieve anxiety?  If so, you are not alone.  It seems we are all so busy, that any change in our schedule creates even more anxiety.

Everyone is plugged into stressful jobs, computers, phones, traffic and more.  It is no wonder that so many in our society today are suffering from anxiety.  So how do you begin to calm the mind so you can start feeling more balanced and less anxious?

So this week, I want to share some natural ways to relieve your anxiety symptoms.  Many people struggle with anxiety and will turn to prescription medications.  But what if there was another way to get your anxiety under control?

Now there is certainly a time and a place for prescription anxiety medication, but it should not be the first thing a person should turn to when feeling anxious.  Many people don’t want this anyway.  Part of my mission is to provide you with natural alternatives to prescription medications after all.  

However, you must remember that no matter what method you try, it is imperative to consult your health professional when needed and to take any advice, or treatments recommended seriously, but, that does not mean that you cannot also add alternative treatments that are more natural for a holistic approach to your anxiety care.

Alternative/Natural And Non-Medical Treatment Options

There are many non-medical treatments for anxiety that you can use each day in order to get your anxiety under control. Try them out and see what works for you.  

  • Regular exercise will allow your body to release “feel good” hormones. This is a great non-medical treatment whether you suffer from anxiety or not.  It is also a great way to relieve stress.  This will also help your body to become healthier and a healthy body can deal with anxiety much better than an unhealthy body.
  • Sound therapy is another form of non-medical treatment that can be used for anxiety. This is a new discovery that science is using to treat many things including depression and anxiety. The way sound therapy works is that the person listens to high frequency sounds, these sounds stimulate the brain and recharge it. Sound therapy has been proven to create a permanent state of peace and relaxation in patents.  One option here is listening to different sound waves in meditative music, like Theta Waves.
  • Eat a healthy diet free of stimulates, such as caffeine, alcohol, sugar and processed foods.  To help jump start this process, do a detox.  Not just any detox, but one that works on your diet and your mindset.  Such as in my Detox Your Body & Mind Program.  To learn more:  Click Here

Herbal Supplements

There are also many herbal supplements that provide natural ways to relieve anxiety symptoms. These can be used as an alternative treatment to prescription medications in some cases, but should never be mixed with prescriptions without first talking to your health care provider. Below are just some of the natural remedies available.

  • Zen is a product that contains both l-theanine and GABA.  Both of these ingredients have been shown to promote relaxation and ease anxiety symptoms.  L-theanine occurs naturally in green tea and GABA is a neurotransmitter that is critical for normal brain function.  To learn more about Zen, click here.
  • 5-HTP is an amino acid, that when combined with vitamin B6 helps to make serotonin.  Serotonin helps support a healthy mood.  If you are currently on a Selective Seratonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI), be sure to consult your health professional before taking.  
  • Magnesium helps to relax the nervous system.  Many of us tend to be deficient in magnesium.  Take before bed as it can help not only your anxiety, but can also help you sleep better.  
  • Ashwagandha helps not only relieve anxiety, but can help improve your energy.  

You can find many of these natural remedies by clicking here.

Learning How to Handle Stress

Learning how to handle stress is another way you can naturally treat your anxiety. One of the ways you can do this is by keeping a daily journal. Here you will be able to write down all of your feelings, talk about the things that are causing you anxiety, determine if there is anything you can do to change the situation and create an action plan for changing the situation.  If you need assistance with this, I would recommend finding a therapist trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

Listening to positive affirmations is another way some people handle anxiety. Positive affirmations teach your brain to think in a new way and after you have listened to them for a while you will find that when you are becoming overwhelmed by anxiety they will automatically play themselves over and over in your mind.  To help get you started, read Wayne Dyer’s book, Your Sacred Self or listen to music or CDs on positive thinking and affirmations.

Putting It All Together

Now that you have this information, try out some of the natural ways to relieve your anxiety I have shared with you.  What do you have to lose, except the anxiety?  If you want to relieve your anxiety naturally, it is not enough just to exercise or just to take a supplement. You have to put all of the techniques together in a way that works for you. Taking a supplement while creating an exercise routine, eating right, and learning to manage your stress are some of the best ways for you to naturally relieve your anxiety.

Has Your Gut Been An Issue For Years?

Many of the health issues that people are experiencing today begin with your gut health.  Has your gut been an issue for years and you don’t know it?  Maybe you have digestive issues and are still trying to figure out what is going on and how to heal your gut and eliminate the root causes of your digestive issues?

Maybe you don’t have digestive issues, but are suffering from fatigue, weight gain, joint pain, headaches, unexplained rashes or hormonal balance.  Your gut health could be the source of these problems.  If any of this sounds familiar, you are not alone…

Is this you?

“My biggest challenge is to know WHAT to eat. I know to eat unprocessed real food, but what about yogurt or tofu? I eat LOTS of home-grown vegetables both raw and sautéed. It seems to take many hours for my stomach to digest my food.  I’m tired all the time!  I’m told that I’ll have LOTS of energy on a whole-foods diet.  So far I have not experienced an increase in energy.  HELP!” – Nancy S.

“Because my allergies are so extensive at this point I am unable to do things to heal my gut – eg probiotics make me feel stressed. Bone broths make me feel tired /sleepy/ fatigued. Glutamine makes me severely fatigued.” – Lidija K.

“My challenge is to balance the healing with eating a nutritious diet. If I am having heartburn I literally stop eating for about 2 days and when I do eat I am afraid to eat something that will bring the heartburn back again. For example I do not digest protein well, I cannot do too many carbs either and I cannot live on just fats. Also I do not digest many vegetables well and because I also have thyroid issues I am encouraged to stay away from cruciferous vegetable. There is nothing left to eat. My fear is that I am nutrient deficient because of my digestive issues.” Maizy W.

“How to restore my microbiome from damage incurred 27 years ago when I was on 7 rounds of antibiotics in one year.  After the antibiotics I developed CFS and then gut problems over the years.” – Kristel W.

Over 100 million Americans alone suffer from digestive complaints.

And one of the most important things I’ve learned over the years, and I’ve learned it well…

Is that when it comes to your health, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer.

Your digestive system is as unique as you are. And so are your symptoms and level of knowledge about healing your digestive issues.

From September 9-17, my colleague, Dr. Michael Murray, will be hosting the Free Online Digestive Health Summit, and I would like you to come as my guest.

Click Here to register for the Digestive Health Summit. 

Dr. Murray has literally written the Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine and the Encyclopedia of Healing Foods. He’s known by many as the “Voice of Natural Medicine” – and he’s been helping people heal their digestive issues for over 30 years. 

And when you register for your free seat, if you take a moment to tell him a little bit about your situation, he’ll be able to customize your Summit experience…

So that you can get all of YOUR gut health questions answered during the Summit.  Then in the coming weeks I will be sharing with you my go to test to help start the gut healing process. So watch out for that.

If you’re sick of being overwhelmed by all the conflicting information out there about digestive health, then I know you’re going to love this Summit!

Do you suffer from migraines?  Have you tried this……

Image freedigitalphotos.net

Do you suffer from migraines or know someone who does?  

Most people that have migraines will turn to over-the-counter medications or prescription drugs to get relief from this horribly debilitating condition.

But, as you know, medications have side-effects that can be potentially dangerous. Complications that can occur include possible liver damage, ulcers, poor kidney function and even rebound headaches. Thankfully, there are natural holistic approaches that can ease headache and migraine pains and even prevent them.

Have you ever tried acupuncture?  

Acupuncture may not be the first thing that pops into mind when you think of ways to ease your nagging migraine headache, but, you might be surprised to find that it should be. According to a recent medical study, when it comes to migraines and other types of chronic headaches, acupuncture can provide better lasting relief than conventional medical care.

In a study published in the British Medical Journal, researchers have discovered that acupuncture greatly helps in improving the quality of life, as well as, preventing headaches for patients who suffer from chronic migraines. The study involved around 400 adults, half of whom were given only conventional medical treatment, while the other half received twelve sessions of acupuncture along with conventional care for a full three months.

After their treatments were completed, all participants who received the acupuncture reported that they were having fewer days with headaches and migraines than before the treatments began. Three months after the treatments, these people continued to report a significant decline in migraine intensity, frequency and days of onset.

A year after the study concluded, researchers discovered these findings for those who had the twelve sessions of acupuncture:

  • Reduced their usage of medications by 15%.
  • Experienced fewer days with migraines and headaches (an average of 22 days).
  • Had 25% less visits to their doctor than before the study.
  • Had 15% less sick time taken off at work than the group that did not have acupuncture treatments.

The ancient Chinese practice of acupuncture can be more effective than other types of treatment without acupuncture, as far as, reducing headache severity and frequency. 

How Does Acupuncture Work? 

As a treatment for chronic migraines and headaches, this ancient Chinese practice involves the injection of tiny needles into particular body points, followed by a gentle electrical or manual stimulation of these needles.

This procedure facilitates an instant flow of blood in the tissues by way of a mechanism called axon reflex that augments the blood vessels surrounding the needle areas. As the blood flow increases, the circulation improves, removing stagnation (poor blood flow in Chinese medicine) in the body. This, in turn, prevents and eases the migraine.

Acupuncture In Traditional Chinese Medicine
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture is a practice that balances a person’s chi, a life force or a flow of energy that runs through the meridians or pathways of the body. The use of and believed effectiveness of acupuncture for headaches has been a standard in TCM since its beginnings in China more than 2,000 years ago.

As the needles are inserted into the specific acupuncture points, the energy in the body is restored into perfect balance, easing and even preventing headache pain, and actually helping other conditions too.
Western medical practitioners, on the other hand, consider these points as areas to stimulate muscles, nerves and connective tissues. They believe that the practice’s stimulation activity increases blood flow and boosts the activity of natural painkillers in the body. Whichever way it works, the fact remains that acupuncture does help with various types of headaches, including, migraines.

How Many Acupuncture Treatments Will You Need?
The frequency, number and length of acupuncture treatments will vary from one person to another. But, for the most part, a session of this ancient Chinese treatment lasts between five minutes to half an hour once or twice per week.

Have You Ever Thought of Growing Your Own Herb Garden?

Have you ever thought about growing your own herb garden?

Herbs not only can add flavor to a dish, but can be used for medicinal purposes as well.  

Long before there were doctors and high-tech medications, people were growing their own herbal remedies through gardening.  This is how people would manage many of the ills, using natural remedies such as herbs.  You can grow your own herbal medicine remedies—in the garden or in pots you keep in front of the window. When you grow them in doors, you can have fresh herbs at your finger tips all year long.
 
Many common herbal remedies can be grown, gathered, steeped in teas, or put in ointments. Here are some herbal remedies that you can grow in the comfort of your own home.

If you don’t know how to use the herb, check with an herbalist or get a book that can show you the best ways to use these plants for their therapeutic value.  For this I would recommend:

Chamomile: Chamomile can be used as an infusion or in an ointment for topical applications. The flower heads of chamomile can help relieve tension and anxiety; it also works to ease symptoms of colic and indigestion. Topically, it helps with skin irritations and areas of inflammatory skin conditions.
 
Echinacea: This perennial plant makes flowers that can be used for colds or flus. It has been shown to enhance your immune system so you can fight off viruses better. Try Echinacea tea for when you’re not feeling well and down with the flu.
 
Feverfew: These plants have leaves and flowers that can be steeped in a tea or chewed in order to control fever, headaches, arthritis, and various skin conditions.
 
Johnny Jump Up: This plant has many anti-inflammatory properties so it can be used as a tea or for topical application in conditions like eczema and blemishes of the skin. Used orally, it can loosen phlegm when you have a chest cold.
 
Lavender: Lavender has great properties when it comes to relaxation and calming. It is used as aromatherapy for those who want some stress relief. Apply it to cuts and bruises in order to act as an antiseptic to decrease the risk of infection. 
 
Lemon balm: Lemon balm can be grown in a pot or in your garden. It can be used for many things, including the relief of anxiety, herpes infections, insect bites, insomnia, indigestion, and flatulence. When topically applied in an ointment, it can lead to faster healing of cold sores. 

Marigold: Marigold is good for skin conditions, such as sunburn, blemishes, acne as well as systemic conditions, such as stomach ulcers and indigestion.
 
Parsley:  Parsley is easily grown in an indoor garden. A healthful herb also helps in situations of bad breath or flatulence.
 
Peppermint: Peppermint is a great herb for gas or digestive problems. It can be made into a tasty tea that also helps people with headache pain.
 
Rosemary: Rosemary is an herbal remedy that helps improve mood as well as memory and concentration. It also helps ease bad breath.
 
Sage: Sage was used for medicinal purposes before it was used in cooking. It helps people with inflammations of the mouth and throat.
 
Thyme:  Thyme is a very strong antiseptic that works for people who have congestion, gas, cough, or indigestion. Steep it as a tea or take and chew its leaves.
 
St. John’s Wort: This herb is used in many places in Europe and the United States for the management of mild to moderate depression. It is also used for symptoms related to depression, such as insomnia, loss of appetite, anxiety, and fatigue. You can grow the herb yourself, using the leaves and flowers in a tea to improve your mood. 
 
You don’t have to have a huge herb garden. Start with a few items and build-up as you gain experience and see how you can relieve many of life’s ailments without a trip to the local pharmacy.

Are you tired of being tired?

Are you tired of being tired?  

There are many reasons for the way you are feeling, but there is one very important reason why you are not able to shake the brain fog, are waking up feeling like you haven’t slept and continue to struggle to get through the day.  Do you want to know what it is?  Toxins.

Like know time in history, you and I are being inundated from toxins in the air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink and from the barrage of electronic and information overload.  All of this takes a toll on your physical, emotional and mental health.  

If your body is not detoxing properly you are going to be stuck.  You won’t be able to conquer that mountain and get to the other side.  So where do you begin?  You first have to start not only by taking a hard look at what you are putting in your mouth, but also focusing on your mindset.  

Now there is plenty of information about detoxing and all of the great benefits that it can give your body. There are lots of detox programs to help get you started.  However many detox programs are like many diets, they are short term and the effects don’t last.  Why is that?  Because most people don’t stick with the healthy eating habits.  Unless you change your mindset you will continue to remain stuck.  

A change in mindset means a change in lifestyle that you are going to be willing to make.  Only then can you be on the path to better health and healing.  Having said that, sometimes you need a little extra help to get you going.  You need  a jump start!

That is where doing a healthy detox plan comes in.  Now I am not talking about juice or herbal cleanses, or fasting.  I am talking about taking baby steps.  Start with a weekly goal to change one thing in your diet, exercise program (or lack thereof), or address an emotion related to a negative mindset.  Many programs never look at the emotional aspect of changing your lifestyle so that your body is working optimally to rid the daily toxins your body is exposed to.  

When you are detoxing well, you help your body get rid of toxins. Toxins impact your body on the inside as well as on the outside. All of your organs as well as your skin are affected by the toxins found in your environment and in your food and drink products. Detoxing can help eliminate a lot of problems associated with toxins, such as headaches, fatigue, digestive issues, hormone imbalances, skin irritations  and more.

There are plenty of detox plans that work great, but other ones can be dangerous, so you do need to know which one to choose. Making a detox plan for yourself depends on your goals and personal preferences.  To learn more about how you can begin, grab a free copy of my, “Detox Your Body for Better Health” today!

Can you safely rid your body of toxins?

We live in a world today that if full of toxins in the air with breath, the food we eat and the cosmetics we put on our skin.  

So what are toxins?  Toxins and other unnatural elements are substances that may harm the body. You may not know it, but many of your lifestyle habits open the door for many of these toxic substances to enter your body. For example, eating foods rich in sugar and preservatives, being exposed to pollution, smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages, and soda all tax your digestive track.  The biggest organ in your body takes the greatest hit and that is your liver.  Your liver is your primary detoxification organ.  The liver helps you process and eliminate toxins.  Toxins are chemicals that have harmful side effects on the body and your mind.
 
When your detoxification system is working properly, your body is able to effectively remove toxic and harmful substances.  This is the way for the body to get rid of all the toxins acquired from stimulants, food, and pollution.
 
Though the liver is your primary detoxification organ, it does not work alone. The body has a very sophisticated way to cleanse itself. Cells get detoxified in the circulatory system, and the lymphatic system. Moreover, the liver is being assisted by the kidneys and intestines, eliminating the toxins through urine and bowels. The lungs and skin also provide an outlet for these toxic materials. But when the body’s natural detox system gets overloaded with tremendous amounts of toxins, illness can arise.  Therefore, making healthy lifestyle choices and doing a healthy detox can go a long way to optimal health.  

Toxins are caused not only by foods we ingest in the body but also by the long-term effects of overeating, stress, poor health habits, and improper diet. Also, some people experience what we call intestinal toxemia. This is caused by years of overeating foods that are processed and high in fats but low in fiber. For this reason, food cannot pass through the digestive tract efficiently and can literally rot inside the body and emit toxic by-products.
 
So the question is, can you safely rid your body of toxins?
 
The simple answer is yes.  The safest way to detoxify is through healthy diet; avoiding unhealthy food and other products that may affect the filtering system of our body. Such products are trans fats, caffeine, food preservatives, additives, and alcohol. But don’t just stay away from these products, replace them with foods rich in fiber such as organic vegetables and fruits.

Fiber rich foods push the toxins out of the body. It is also good to drink plenty of fluids. Drinking water and juicing will aid in flushing away toxins from the body.
 
The body needs to detox and this can only be achieved through having a proper and disciplined lifestyle. Most detox programs concentrate on doing a short-term cleanse.  This does not lead to long term success.

If you don’t address certain unhealthy lifestyle habits it is doubtful that a short-term cleanse will have much impact.  That is why I developed a program that helps take you step by step to eliminating bad habits and replacing them with healthier lifestyle habits.  

Are you ready to learn how to detox your body and your mind?  If so, I have developed a 30 day step by step plan to help you.  In the Detox Your Body & Mind Program you can begin to take steps to cleaning up your diet, along with those things that create stress not only on your body, but also your mind.  

To learn more about this program, I have put together a video for you. Watch Here

Have you wondered if doing a detox can give you more energy?

So many people today are chronically fatigued.  

Fatigue is what happens when you go beyond simply feeling tired. But fatigue never just happens out of the blue. There’s always a reason that you become drained of energy.
 
One of the biggest reasons that people become fatigued is because their body becomes too filled with the things that bog it down, zap its energy and make it hard for it to function like it should. Does this sound like you?
 
You don’t have to stay that way, though. Living day to day in a state of fatigue isn’t something that you have to do. If you want to stop the fatigue and have better health, then one of the things that you can do is to detox your body.  I like to do a detox in the spring and fall.  

We are exposed to so many things in the air with breath, the food we eat, what we drink and the stress we encounter on a daily basis.  

When you go through a detox system, you’ll gain the energy back that you lost. The reason that you’ll gain back your energy is because you’ll be getting rid of the things in your body that create obstacles for it to operate at its full potential.  This can have a significant impact on your body and mind.
 
Most people don’t realize that they’re setting themselves up to reach a state of fatigue. They go about their lives and it seems the fatigue just creeps in over time. 
 
The things that you do and the things that you consume will impact both your physical and mental energy. But when you go through a detox, what you’re doing is cleansing away the things that are zapping your energy.  

Are you chronically fatigued?

Can a detox give you more energy?  
It can when a detox process is done right.  Many detox programs put you through a fast, but do nothing to help the stress on your mind.  In order to fill better long term it is important to address both.  
 
The things that go into your body and cloud your mind build up.  Every part of your body is affected by what you eat, and feel.  Toxins in the world are all around you.
 
You breathe in toxins every day and are probably not even aware of how much you do breathe in these things that rob you of energy. These toxins build up in your organs, in the tissues of your body, in the muscles and in the bloodstream.
 
Because your bloodstream brings blood to your organs, that’s how they become affected. These toxins enter into various areas of your body and they begin to weigh you down.  
 
When you use a detox system and get rid of these toxins, you restore the right balance to your body. You’ll gain stamina and strength as well as feel better all over.

Have you had enough of feeling fat, tired, and depressed?  Are you longing for a good night’s sleep?  What would your life be like if you lost weight, had more energy, felt happy and got rid of the belly bloat?  What would that feel like?  Would you enjoy life more?  There is a way you can jump start this process, if you know where to begin.
