HOW TO AVOID DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES: For ‘a healthier you’!

dangerousOver the years, my many client neuromuscularbiofeedback sessions have provided information that has helped clients to implement ‘stop, start and change’ strategies; ultimately resulting in improved health.  After clients sessions I provide followup emails to clients with research based information links that back up many of their ‘weak list‘ challenges. Weak challenges are often the result of the body’s inability to effectively detoxify certain substances, even natural substances. Weak challenges can also indicate allergies, harmful or toxic substances. Sometimes the items on the weak list indicate a challenge resulting from combining a food item with a medication (e.g. grapefruit).

If you have any type of health challenges, including allergies and gastrointestinal distress, proceed with caution before following the latest health trends.  Investigate before you proceed. Adding suspect items may add challenges that could interfer with the body’s natural and necessary communication, function, immunosurveillance and immunoresponse. Adding multiple items on a daily basis increases these health challenges.

Examples of substances clients are commonly weak to:

Rice, coconut water and milk, almonds and pork are items on many client weak lists:

Weakness to rice products: Arsenic in rice products http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2F1MDzyW55pg97Tdpp7gqLN/should-i-be-concerned-about-arsenic-in-my-rice

Weakness to pork and other animal products:  https://nutritionfacts.org/video/eating-outside-our-kingdom/https://nutritionfacts.org/video/mrsa-superbugs-in-meat/https://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-consumption-and-the-development-of-type-1-diabetes/https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-not-to-die/

Weakness to green tea:  Green tea is often on my client’s weak lists despite the fact that is found to have many health benefits.  My thoughts are that in the case of my clients, who usually come to me with major health challenges, is that it possibly challenges their liver’s already challenged detoxification pathways.

“Hepatotoxicity, is when too many herbs or supplements—everything from Tylenol to green tea—chemically induce liver damage. This particular type, herbal hepatotoxicity, can happen when we take too much of an herbal supplement or even down too many cups of herbal a day.” https://www.shape.com/healthy-eating/healthy-drinks/too-much-green-tea-or-matcha-could-lead-liver-damage

Weakness to the air pollution: Harmful substances inhaled at home, in the work place and outdoors require efficient detoxification.  Even then they can add to your daily list of health challenges.

How do you know what to avoid?  

A weak list assessment is a valuable tool to provide you with a ‘weak list’ of foods and other items that your body is unable to tolerate (possibly detoxify).

Muscle response testing for health protection will help you to avoid foods and other substances that your body is unable to tolerate.

GASTROINTESTINAL DISTRESS: The Quest For Symptom Relief

stomach ache

There was a time when I was doubled over in agony every time I ate. It took me years of trial and error strategies and research to get to where I am today, free of all food allergies and gastrointestinal distress.  At one time I reacted to every food and chemical, many of them causing me gastrointestinal distress. Food allergy testing showed reactions immediate and delayed to more than 88 foods.

Symptom relief was crucial to being able to function on a daily basis as I had a young family to take care of. To achieve 100% elimination of my gastrointestinal distress I had to look deeper and deal with the underlying issues. Symptoms are only the ‘tip of the iceberg’. The underlying ‘base of the iceberg’ issues must be resolved to achieve 100% symptom relief. Symptomatic relief is a ‘band aid’ not a solution!

Symptom Iceberg Analogy

There are many additional possible underlying causes such as endocrine disruption, emotional trauma and associations. Underlying causes can all be remedied by following the recommendations in my holistic protocol in my book below.

Consider the following for temporary relief of symptoms:

Interim Remedies for Food Reactions from www.onlineallergycenter.com/foodallergies/ by Russell Roby, J.D., M.D., A.C.A.A.I., F.C.L.M.  

Buffered Vitamin C — Your first line of defence against a food reaction is Buffered Vitamin C in powdered form. Mix one teaspoon of the powder in a glass of water. Drink. If there is no relief or improvement in 15 minutes, try the following remedy:  

Baking Soda — Mix one teaspoon in a glass of water. Drink. This will provide relief in almost all cases of food reactions.  (I recommend starting with 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon.)

Alka Seltzer Gold   A natural antacid   

DGL “de-glycyrrhizinated” licorice root,  is used for conditions of the digestive tract, such as ulcers ” (I used a lot of this for GI relief)

Dealing with your ‘base of the iceberg’ issues:

Your ‘base of the iceberg’ issues must be resolved to achieve 100% symptom relief. My holistic protocol in The Whole Person Well-being Equation will guide you through the steps I took to become 100% food allergy free and gastrointestinal distress free. You can order my book at this link. In recent years I have become a doterra wellness advocate and now recommend therapeutic grade essential oils for symptom relief in combination with resolving the underlying causes.  Contact me at www.mydoterra.com/elisabethlhines to find out my recommendations for gastrointestinal distress.
