TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR BEAUTIFUL LIFE: Reclaim Your Health!

beautiful life

“Today is the first day of the rest of your beautiful life”! Today is an opportunity to restart or start over in your quest for ‘a healthier you’. You may already tried many conventional and non conventional strategies in your quest for health recovery. Regardless of how many times you have started again, today can be a new opportunity for greater health allowing you to get on with living your beautiful life and the pursuit of meaningful goals.

But where do you start? A holistic approach to well-being requires you to implement a ‘stop, start and change’ agenda. Adding in another strategy may not result in the desired outcome. Whatever strategies you add will take time to see results.

“If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.”

― Albert Einstein

How do you know what you need to stop, start or change? The butterfly effect is the belief that small changes over time can create huge life changes.

Butterfly effect

You may be required to change what you believe is possible to reach your well-being goals:

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies away anyway. Because bees don’t care what humans think is possible” 1

You can find the ‘stop, start and change’ strategies that helped me in my recovery from toxicant induced loss of tolerance (TILT), multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), chronic fatigue, depression, multiple food allergies and more in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation. I have shared my holistic strategies with clients with various health challenges over the years and they have also been able to recover. You can read their comments here.

Regardless of how many times you have started over, do not lose hope. Today is a new opportunity for greater health and a healthy life. Review what you are and are not doing that may require change using the information in the previous links. Make a list of things that you can stop, start or change today that have helped others recover and may help you as well.  Let your intuition (your little voice) guide you.

Wishing you health and happiness!  It is within your reach!

REBOOTING YOUR HEALTH : Revive Your Body’s Amazing Abilities

reboot

Holistic health strategies, like lifestyle medicine address the root causes of disease and symptoms. The human body came equipped with efficient innate abilities that when working properly, will not only protect you from pathogens and environmental threats, but also fight disease.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14

“Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.” Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, Greek Physician (460BC-377BC)

Like a computer, for optimum operation, the body and brain require ongoing undisrupted surveillance and communication to effectively detect and respond to threats. When your computer stops functioning optimally you can do a ‘reboot’ or ‘system restore’. Holistic health strategies help your body to naturally reboot and system restore; allowing your body to return to functioning as intended in God’s pre-programmed factory default settings.

reboot definition:

  • to start up again after closing or shutting down to boot up again waiting for a computer/program to reboot
  • to start (something) anew to refresh (something) by making a new start or creating a new version 
  • to start anew to make a fresh start 
Daily exposure to toxins in the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat and the products we absorb through our skin, hair and nails results in an ongoing circulation of these disrupting forces as our body attempts to detoxify them. Even if your body has efficient detoxification pathways, this ongoing flood of toxins can disrupt normal communication, surveillance and responses while your body is working hard to detox them. This is an even more of a health challenge for little ones and pregnant moms. The human body was not designed to function with an ongoing level of toxic, disrupting body pollution. Think about how a virus affects the normal operation of your computer.  You need to eliminate the virus for the disruptions to stop and normal computer function to resume.  A steady wash of toxins in your body also causes ongoing disruptions and compromised functioning. Ongoing effective detoxification like that provided with the two step detoxification strategy below allows all of the body’s normal productions (internal pharmacy), functions (immunoresponse) and other amazing abilities to work as originally designed.

 

I recommend a two step detoxification process to limit the ongoing internal disruption caused by toxins, a crucial step to ‘reboot’ your body’s natural, amazing abilities:

 

Step #1 – Stop adding to the body’s detoxification load and body pollution. This can be accomplished by ‘greening’ your environments, diet, personal care products, symptom relief options and cleaning products.

Step #2 – Eliminate your present body/mind pollution by promoting the body’s natural detoxification pathways effectiveness using a variety of body detoxification strategies and aids.

Regardless of what your health challenges are, this two step process if the place to start for health recovery and reboot.  Get started today using holistic health strategies which will naturally reboot your body’s naturally functioning and amazing abilities.  You can find more holistic health strategies and expanded detoxification aids and recipes, including botanical spa therapy in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation.

MIRACLES: How to Implement a Placebo Cure, Radical Remission or Spontaneous Remission

Link

 miracletoolkit

When I drafted The Whole Person Well-being Equation years ago, I wrote about the significance of belief and the other ingredients of the well-being recipe mix (Pg 85).

The Well-being Recipe Mix

recipemix

Since that time research has provided so much more insight into the importance and power of belief to ‘change your health outcome’. The scientific evidence is fuel for your ‘belief and hope’; about what is possible in terms of recovery and a cure. The new research on ‘the placebo’ effect’ as a mind body healing strategy completes the understanding necessary for your body and mind to implement a placebo cure, radical remission or spontaneous remission. Get started today! The research proves that you have everything that you need.

“Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work.

The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force

in getting well.”

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, Greek Physician (460BC-377BC)

Update:  Recently, I watched Miracle from Heaven again with my family at my grand daughter’s request.  It was the second time for me.  It reminded me of how I started to ask God for miracles at the age of seven when my brother was diagnosed with ‘an incurable’ type of cancer. My mother would say ‘pray for a miracle’. I would obediently pray for a miracle, not really understanding how miracles work. Now, many years later, after bartering with God many times for miracles over the years and seeing so many people defy the odds of their diagnoses; I understand that miracles come in different ways, some times all at once in a spontaneous remission and other times in small deliveries in a radical remission. Either way you describe it, they are miracles. If you haven’t already watched this amazing film based on the true story of a little girl with an incurable disease, I promise you it will inspire and make you believe in miracles. Heaven is Real is another amazing video based on a true story about a miracle. Check them out below.

Have you asked and prayed for a miracle? Are you expecting it to arrive all at once or is it being delivered to you in multiple deliveries, like some of my Amazon purchases. My miracles of recovery from multiple diagnosed health challenges over the years have come in multiple deliveries over time, for which am abundantly grateful.  I continue to ask for and expect ‘more healing’. More is possible, ‘do not’ stop believing and asking and watching for the multiple deliveries that make up a miracle.

Where do you start?

  • Understand what the placebo effect, spontaneous remission or radical remission are:
    • According to the dictionary the placebo effect is a beneficial effect, produced by a placebo drug or treatment, that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient’s belief in that treatment.
    • According to The Radical Remission Project, “a Radical Remission is a cancer remission that occurs either without conventional medical treatment, after conventional treatment has failed to work, or when conventional and complementary methods are used in conjunction to overcome a dire prognosis. We believe that, given enough documented cases to research, the cause(s) of Radical Remission can be uncovered.”
    • A spontaneous remission is an unexpected improvement or cure from a disease that usually progresses. These terms are commonly used for unexpected transient or final improvements in cancer.
  • Become informed about the placebo effect, radical remission and spontaneous remission research.
      • Dr. Lissa Rankin has done an incredible job in her video segment, The Placebo Effect:  How to Use Your Mind-Body Connection to Heal. This is a  must view to understand the research so that your brain can be updated about what is ‘scientifically’ possible.

      • Understand the science behind the power of believing and using it as ‘believe/belief therapy’ in The Biology of Belief by Dr. Bruce Lipton.

    • Understand the power of belief when used in visualization.
    • Understand the external environmental influences that interfere with the epigenetic health cycle. These can be found in The Genie in Your Genes, Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention by Dawson Church.
    • Understand the research behind spontaneous remissions and the placebo.
    • Immunity over inability: The spontaneous regression of cancer
    • The Spontaneous Remission Project, put together by the Institute of Noetic Sciences, collected over 3,500 case studies published in medical literature about people who experienced spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable diseases.”
    • Understand how to repair your epigenome regardless of whether you have genetic predispositions to conditions and diseases. Epigenome is the complete description of all the chemical modifications to DNA and histone proteins that regulate the expression of genes within the genome.
    • The Radical Remission Project is a database of cancer remissions that occurs either without conventional medical treatment, after conventional treatment has failed to work, or when conventional and complementary methods are used in conjunction to overcome a dire prognosis.

Practice self-help:

  • According to the Harvard Men’s Health Watch article The Power of the Placebo Effect, Harvard Health Publishing, Harvard Medical School; you can ‘Give yourself a placebo’.
    • “Practicing self-help methods is one way. Engaging in the ritual of healthy living — eating right, exercising, yoga, quality social time, meditating — probably provides some of the key ingredients of a placebo effect,” says Kaptchuk.
  • Relaxation is a key required ingredient in the placebo cure cycle. This gives your body the required rest time to promote balance and repair.
  • From The Genie in Your Genes, Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention by Dawson Church; belief, nurturing, energy medicine, visualization, energy psychology, heart coherence, spirituality, meditation, attitude, prayer and altruism are a part of the epigenetic health cycle. The addition of these to your daily life will promote high DHEA levels which are adaptive, contributing to gene repair. Chronic stress produces chronic cortisol which is maladaptive and prevents gene repair.  Look for more strategies to support your epigenetic health cycle in The Whole Person Well-being Equation below.

You can find a diverse selection of self-help therapies and tools (Chapter 7), including customized visualizations to correct faulty immunosurveillance, immunoassessment and immunoresponse (Chapter 7, page 147) in The Whole Person Well-being Equation.

The holistic strategies make up my ‘coach in a book’ and provide you with instructions on how to use the ‘radical cure’ toolkit tools to promote understanding, belief and relaxation; prompting your body to ‘give yourself a placebo effect, radical or spontaneous remission’. The book also contains ‘doubt busting’ supports and resources (page 92).

Get started today on implementing your placebo cure or radical remission.  As Hippocrates indicated, you have the power within you, you just need some help!

Dr. You: Delegating Responsibility For Your Healthcare

Dr you

Who is responsible for your health and well-being?

Health is in part dependent on the quality of the healthcare you choose to receive from the healthcare providers you choose to consult. Your health and well-being are ultimately your responsibility. Your well-being depends on you to make healthy choices and take the steps required to assess and preserve your health, promoting your overall well-being. It requires you to regularly monitor the status of your body and be in tune to its needs by listening to the subtle messages it gives you. Your well-being is your choice and your responsibility! The power to be well is yours.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine was quoted to say: “Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well”. There was a time when the focus for health recovery was to rely on the ‘doctor within’, as the first response. In modern times, sometimes the first response is the medicine cabinet, doctor’s office or emergency room. There are definitely times when these are necessary choices. Modern medicine has saved many lives. Many people have delegated 100% responsibility for their healthcare to their doctors, pharmacists and other medical providers. 

How much of the authority and responsibility for your healthcare have you handed over? You mind and body were created fully equipped, and capable of providing you with many natural cures – provided by your body’s amazing abilities and internal pharmacy

Calling Dr. You

You have the authority to delegate the responsibility for your healthcare to your ‘doctor within’ and other healthcare practitioners and therapies, as required. You possess the power to choose to implement a well-being plan and follow it through. You have the power to choose to accept a diagnosis or prognosis as a done deal or not. You have the power to choose to believe your body can heal. Other than the factors beyond your control, you have the power to control the factors that will potentially affect your well-being.

As a part of the ongoing healing process, the brain is constantly assessing the status of your body and communicating the need for nutrients, detoxification, repair and replacement of cells to the relevant organs, systems and body parts. These ongoing processes and communication directing them must be protected. Many factors are capable of promoting detoxification and healing, and many factors have the potential to interfere with the body’s natural communications and pre-programmed abilities. The success of your life-long journey of well-being will depend on those processes continuing uncompromised. To maintain your well-being will require you to continually stack your well-being odds by staying informed and making required changes.
