DIGGING DEEPER: For a Healthier You


Have you been experiencing the same chronic symptoms and conditions for a very long time? If so, it may be time to look deeper to achieve the symptom and condition free status that is possible.

Over the many years that I have worked with clients with a variety of acute and chronic symptoms and conditions I have become aware of a common theme.  Symptomatic relief, whether conventional or natural, will take care of symptoms; for long term relief or permanent elimination of symptoms, one must dig deeper.  More is possible if you ‘dig deeper’ in the quest to resolve your symptoms and conditions.  It does require an open mind, open to the new and emerging strategies available.

  1. You can find most of the ‘digging deeper solutions’ in depth strategies in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation, my blog and my website.
  2. Customized visualizations to improve immunosurveillance, immunofocus and immunoresponse can also be found in my book.  You have great power to change your cells including your dna using visualization.  Read the amazing research on the power of visualization at the Heart Math Institute. Learn how to customize your visualization using information from your test results and medical reports. You can find this information in my book The Whole Person Well-being Equation. My book contains a list of visualizations to help guide the body to continue apoptosis and initiate an effective immune response.
  3. Reverse engineering longevity information can be found in the Blue Zones book.  Buy the book and get started today.

to reverse your health challenges and have a more fulfilling life. Whatever image you put into your subconscious mind is used to direct your body’s response. Author Joseph Murphy writes about his recovery from a malignancy of the skin in the Chapter 3 section The Subconscious Heals A Malignancy of The Skin, page 55 to 56.

5. Learn how to use your mind to carry out epigenetic engineering in your body. Your genes respond to your thoughts, emotions and beliefs. The way you use your mind shapes your brain, turning genes on and off in ways that can dramatically affect your health and well-being. Buy The Genie in Your Genes and get started today.

6. Eat a plant based diet. I made this choice initially due to the National Geographic research on the people who live in the Blue Zones of the world who live the longest and healthiest.

7. BodyFeetback™ Interview & Therapy will provide you with useful information on the factors contributing to your symptoms and conditions, as well as provide correcting energy therapies to resolve them.  Find out more at http://www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/assess.htm.

8.  Scientific studies indicate the benefit of essential oils to protect DNA and and support the body to repair DNA damage.

MAINTAINING HEALTHY LONGEVITY: Keep Your Liver Happy in the Midst of Toxins, Distress and Happy Hour.


Although the holiday season may not be the most receptive time for discussions on a healthy liver – there are merits to not waiting till a new year or ‘end of vacation’  to heed some liver protection advice. It is a no brainer that regular indulging in happy hour can challenge normal liver function and health. There are many additional factors that are capable of compromising your liver and your health, and there are strategies you can implement for protection.

Your liver is the your most important organ in your pursuit for disease prevention and fighting; especially cancer. A healthy, properly functioning liver is crucial to vitality and healthy longevity. The liver works pretty hard on a daily basis. Maintaining a happy liver that operates efficiently can be a challenge. According to research, just living on this planet is sufficient to cause liver damage in one of every three people.[1]

The liver is involved in the digestion of food and removes harmful substances from the body. It converts nutrients from the food you eat into essential blood components, stores vitamins and minerals and produces proteins and enzymes to maintain hormone balances in your body. The livers helps your immune system to fight infections, removes bacteria from the blood and makes bile which is necessary for digestion.

Symptoms of possible liver inefficiency, malfunction or pathology:

  • abdominal bloating, tenderness or pain
  • weight gain, especially in the abdominal area
  • unexplained fatigue
  • loss of appetite
  • indigestion, nausea, acid reflux, vomiting
  • spider-shaped blood vessels on the upper part of the body
  • jaundice (a yellow coloring of the eyes and skin)
  • vomiting of blood
  • urine changes, dark urine or pale
  • bloody or tar-looking stool
  • fluid retention
  • prolonged itching of the skin
  • skin changes/conditions (rashes, acne)
  • food sensitivities and intolerances
  • hormone irregularities
  • unexplained symptoms

The above symptoms, although associated with possible liver inefficiency or pathology, may also be associated with other conditions. To determine your liver status you may want to ask your doctor for a liver enzyme test. Alanine aminotransferases (ALT) is a liver enzyme that is released when the liver is injured. Research has shown that the more lead, mercury and organochlorine pesticides found in a person’s blood or urine, the greater risk of abnormal ALT.[2] Compromised liver detoxification pathways pay not be reflected in liver enzyme testing. Indications of compromised liver detoxification pathways may present with specific symptoms. A compromised liver can raise the risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, headaches, digestive problems, allergies and many other ailments.

Natural detoxification is achieved through a series of naturally occurring processes in your body.  The Phase l and phase ll detoxification pathways converts toxic chemicals into less harmful chemicals through various chemical reactions (such as oxidation, reduction and hydrolysis). Excessive levels of free radicals, which are produced by these processes, can damage the liver cells. Adequate stores of antioxidants reduce free radical damage.  Periods of high or chronic toxin exposure can deplete your body’s antioxidant stores making toxic chemical exposures more dangerous and compromised liver function and damage more likely. Antioxidant stores can become depleted in about three days without replenishing. There are many natural strategies to help promote your body’s natural detoxification.

Aging, as well as lack of physical activity poor nutrition, toxins and drugs, are responsible for decreased phase l detoxification. After my many past health challenges and recovery, I am very protective of my health and liver. Use of ‘anti’ type of medications (antihistamines, antidepressants, anti-psychotics, antibiotics, antispasmodics, or anti-hypertensives)  have been associated with memory loss issues; another reason I avoid them – my mother suffers from dementia and I am doing everything I can to prevent ending up the same way.  You can read about the 20 ‘anti’ drugs that have been found to cause memory loss at http://realfarmacy.com/beware-20-medications-cause-memory-loss/. As a holistic wellness practitioner I use neuromuscular biofeedback to assess organ weakness to various factors including food, personal care products, supplements and drugs. Toxins in personal care products all have to be detoxified by the liver, as do toxins (food additives, pesticides) in food. People are always surprised at what items have the biggest impact, creating distress to their liver. My recommendation is always to green their diets, personal care, laundry, cleaning and medicine cabinets.  Reassessment after clients have made these changes always reveals improved liver strength.


Pathological detoxifiers are people who have an imbalance between the phase l and phase ll detoxification pathways leading to a buildup of reactive intermediate metabolites and subsequent tissue damage and liver disease.[3] Click on the image for better resolution.

With the information in the chart above you will be better equipped to protect and support your liver in the midst of toxins, distress and happy hour – promoting healthy longevity.

Enjoy the holidays, every day living and your vacation time prepared.

Sometimes the liver and your body need extra help in the form of detoxification aids.  For information on these visit my web page www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/detox.htm and read my book THE WHOLE PERSON WELL-BEING EQUATION: Utilizing the ‘doctor within’ in combination with self-help therapies and tools for optimum health, available at http://www.mybodycanhealitself.ca/what_people_are_saying.htm.

Be prepared with healthy symptom relief options that will keep your liver healthy and happy. Essential oils paired with meridian points can promote meridian flow, improving ealth. Visit My Green Medicine Cabinet for natural symptom relief strategies and to get started using essential oils for health support. Your liver will thank you!

DNA REPAIR FOR HEALTHY LONGEVITY: Eat Your Cruciferous Vegetables

Updated July 19, 2020


Eating well, especially a diet high in raw cruciferous vegetables, provides ongoing DNA repair – a great healthy longevity choice. In their raw state they provide the enzymes that repair the DNA. Boiling or heating will destroy the essential myrosinase. Myrosinase, an enzyme group, is released upon biting or chewing raw cruciferous vegetables – producing sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is the active compound that directly eliminates carcinogens from the body and provides a protein that inhibits tumor growth and repairs DNA.

You can find a full range of these life giving vegetables at your produce department. Look for broccolli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage and other less common cruciferous vegetables. These vegetables contain powerful DNA repair and anti-cancer agents and should be a part of all anti-cancer and longevity diets. Check out the Happy DIY Home Gardening Complete Cruciferous Vegetable List.

How is your DNA doing?  Now you can find out your health risks. Find out more at DNA TESTING: A Life Saving Tool
