Recharging Your Cells… They Can’t Work On A Dead Battery

Recharging Your Cells… They Can’t Work On A Dead Battery

Hey Warriors!

It’s yet again another week, and it was definitely a hot one this week, whew.  Been praying for those fires all around California, here’s to hoping the heat wave goes down quickly!

This week we are going to be talking briefly about recharging our cells.  If you remember a couple of months ago, I talked about always working with 5 systems of health. #4 in that system is cellular electricity. #1 is Brain #2 Water #3 Food and #5 Emotional.

These 5 systems are what I focus on in my practice.  Cellular Electricity is kind of a hard concept to grasp, because most don’t think of their bodies as electrical needing to be recharged. 
You’ve probably heard of the phrase “needed to recharge”, when you are stressed out and need a break.  Or maybe when you haven’t gotten enough rest. 
It’s easy to conceptualize that when our bodies are worn out or tired that they need a reboot. 

It shouldn’t be a stretch than to understand that our bodies and cells need recharging.  Every cell in us is a rechargeable battery.  They can’t work on a dead battery, just like your phone can’t.

You see, if your cells are “dead” so to speak, then they can’t communicate with one another very well.  They also can’t do their normal functions or detoxify and create new.  
That means just like a battery starts to die, that the signal starts to weaken and dampen. 

I should also mention, our bodies and cells are also bombarded with other frequencies, like high EMF’s every single day.  It’s hard to even escape it, as more and more 5G towers are being installed and homes, schools and work areas are LOADED with technology.  These frequencies as we know can really interfere with that cell signaling and additionally deplete our batteries causing miscommunication and dirty cells.  

One thing I always recommend is even though we can’t escape it, is to decrease your exposure as much as you can.  Turn wifi and other electronics off at night.  Don’t utilize bluetooth, and get protective gear like those from defendershield or EMF solutions to help combat that frequency. 

So HOW do we RECHARGE?!

Since we are electric, just like a battery we have to use electricity or frequencies to help recharge. 

For those that have the funds, there are BIG technology devices that you can sit in front of and change the frequencies you need.  Those are called a RASHA device or a BIOCHARGER. These are definitely not for the average Joe though, being that they are extremely expensive. 

Here are some other options:

One of the best ways is to use something called PEMF, or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy.  This machine creates an alternating electrical current, which is used to generate specific Pulsating Electromagnetic Fields, which is helping to restore / stimulate the body’s own regeneration processes. A PEMF device creates bursts (pulses) of low-level electromagnetic waves to heal damaged tissue and bone and to relieve injury-related pain. 

There are over 2,000 medical studies that evaluate the effect of PEMF on the body —
studies ranging from Arthritis, Cell Regeneration, Circulation, Skin Wound healing, and pain. 
Dr OZ in 2011, cited PEMF therapy machines as one of the most important breakthroughs in pain management that he’s ever discovered.

PEMF therapy devices use a computer or control unit to administer precise natural pulsating magnetic fields to the body (with specific frequencies and intensities) through various applicators such as a full body mat, localized pad applicators and pinpointed probe, pen, or “Xtal” (spot-applicators).

When I was going through Lyme Disease, I utilized PEMF mats and tubes to help my adrenal glands, as they were constantly tanked.  The mats and tubes you will actually feel a pulsing going through your body and it can be quite intense.  Although these tubes and mats are significantly lower in cost than the big guys I mentioned above, they still are a little spendy if you are wanting to do this treatment all the time, which most of us should do.  Unless you buy your own mats or tubes, which would definitely be cost efficient. 

The XTAL or spot applicators, are not quite as strong as the mats and tubes, but have been shown to be still beneficial.  
This last week, I met with an inventor who himself after seeing HUGE results with PEMF and pain, started researching how to make his own to be able to utilize every day. 

Here comes the device called MannaVibes .  Mannavibes claim to fame is that they’ve turned this technology into an affordable app on your smartphone with miniaturized electronics integrated into an elegant wearable gemstone, the Xtal. 
I know, as you might have guessed I asked him tons of questions about going through a phone, since I try to avoid this at all costs.  And I don’t want to put a stone connected to my phone on my body.  However, you CAN put your phone on airplane mode, AND utilize a cord that connects to your phone so that the gemstone can be on your body and the phone away from you. 

The stone applicator contains electronics configured to work as an emitter just like a mat or tube would.  I should also mention that this type of frequency is very different than frequencies from wifi and data.  Those are typically VERY high frequencies, whereas PEMF is pulsed low level which does something very different in the body.

Pretty amazing right?!  I love this concept because not only is it super affordable, but something one can utilize every day.  It could also get someone out of a pain crisis, to allow for more therapies to be utilized.  I have been using it for the past few days on the cell energy and sleep frequencies.  I’m really loving it!

It also makes sense you can travel with it and recharge your batteries after going through a tin can (airplane) and all the EMF’s in an airport.  Just simply do a quick 15 minutes recharge through the connector.   Way easier to bring than a huge tube or PEMF mat.

Hydration-
In order to amplify the current or electricity, our cells do need to be fully hydrated.  Those electrolytes help amplify and make connections flow.  Nerves and signals need oxygen and need hydration.  This is why it is important to keep your cells hydrated to also recharge them.  When you hydrate you also detox old dying debris from the inside.  So just as the frequencies are detoxing the cells, the hydration also in a sense flushes them out.   As I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, there really is no comparison in Kangan water’s ability to penetrate the cell.  Regular water can’t do that.  Check out the flyer below to sign up for the next class to learn more about this!

That is all for now! Let me know if you get one, and your results!

OIL OF THE WEEK
OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Rose OIl.  Rose oil is known to have the highest Hz at 320. By raising the body’s vibration, its able to combat the EMF’s more.

Rosa damascena, more commonly known as the Damask rose, is a small shrub with thorny stems. Originally from the Syrian capital Damascus, it is highly sought after for its many therapeutic properties. Before the sun crests the horizon in Bulgaria, workers can be found in fields harvesting the delicate bloom of the Rosa damascena. The labor-intensive production process has a very low yield; takes more than 10,000 freshly picked rose blossoms to produce only one 5mL bottle of Rose essential oil. Because the petals are so delicate, the distillation process must happen the same day that the flower is harvested. From this labor comes an essential oil known for its sweet floral aroma, beautiful and romantic. Diffuse Rose oil to uplift your spirits; the blooming floral fragrance brings about feelings of love, care, and comfort. Apply topically in daily skin care routines. Rose oil helps balance moisture levels in skin, reduce the appearance of skin imperfections, and promote a healthy-looking and even skin tone.

That is all for now,
Have a happy and healthy week!

Leaky Brain. It’s a thing…

Leaky Brain.. It’s a THING!

Hey Warriors.
Happy Monday!  I hope you enjoyed last blogs topic all about fasting.  It’s such a great simple tool to help your body heal and reset.

This week we are going over Leaky Brain!

So let’s dive in.

First off,
What is leaky Brain?

I’m sure by now, a lot of you know or have heard of Leaky Gut, in which there’s a protective barrier between the gut and the blood. It’s the same thing with the brain, it’s got a protective barrier protecting it from the surroundings and it’s really an even tighter pack then what the barrier from the gut to the blood is because we want to keep bad stuff out of the brain like toxins, infections and harmful immune cells and keep good stuff going into the brain like glucose, ketones and fat soluble nutrients. Leaky brain in essence is a breakdown or a breach of the blood brain barrier.

Our bodies and our brains are constantly being bombarded with these toxins, environmental or bio toxins or even thought toxins that it breaks down the barrier and now it’s easier for these substances to get in. They get in there and they stay in, and sometimes it’s hard to get rid of them.
Think about it this way.  Think of a shoe when you tie up the laces it should be nice and tight. The only things that can get in are maybe water.  The more that the laces loosen, the more pebbles and stones and sand can get in and now the pebble in your shoe doesn’t feel very good, and creates inflammation.
Normally the brain can repair itself but because of this breakdown of the blood brain barrier this leaky brain, now things are constantly getting in causing more brain inflammation and not allowing your brain to actually heal.

How common is leaky brain? And maybe someone with a chronic illness? 

90% of the chronic disorders, degeneration diseases including chronic illness is lifestyle related. Our lifestyle leads to the leaky brain, but we have to take a step back and address the whole body not just the brain but the gut ,the liver, kidneys and lymphatic system because that all leads up to the brain and gives nutrition to the brain. It’s a relatively new phenomenon or concept just like leaky gut was 10 or 15 years ago but it is very common.

If you have leaky gut does that mean you have leaky brain??

It might take a little bit longer to get the leaky brain than the leaky gut because it doesn’t actually start in the gut. If you allow the toxins whether it’s biotoxin infections, parasites, bacteria or mold into your system into the blood it makes its way up into the brain and starts attacking that barrier and getting through. The majority 85-90% again I’m turning out these numbers just because if chronic illness or degeneration including Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, MS key neurodegenerative diseases are preventable which I believe they are and are due to more lifestyle,  I would say 85-90% if you have leaky gut you’re going to have leaky brain.

What are some common Symptoms that someone would know that they have leaky brain?

Memory, brain fog or emotional side effects like anxiety, depression are warning signs if you are talking about just brain issues or brain symptoms. Systemic issues you could get allergies .it could be headaches and migraines, I know that’s what I suffered from with leaky brain. You could be constipated you could have bladder infections all signs of poor gut health leading to poor immune system health. Sometimes the brain fog or anxiety might not be the first symptom it might say you know that’s been there for awhile who knows months years decades, you better address that now or else it’s going to progress even into these things where it’s even more degeneration where your body is trying to protect itself from this inflammation  like dementia, Alzheimer’s, cancer..

Is there actual tears in the barrier, or just more permeability?

It’s both but I would say it’s more of the middle one where it’s at increased permeability with toxins and infections like parasites can break it down to where tears happen.

What causes it?

There are three things that cause this to happen.

1. Deficiencies in Oxygen.  This can be deficiencies in micronutrients because of toxin load, but in this point specifically I mean due to head trauma or posture issues.
Think about all the the stresses we put on our spine by sitting too much, by using our cell phones or smartphones or computers getting in a slumped posture, injuries that we’ve had, it leads to deficiencies in the nervous system flow with the brain getting that information down to the cells of the body.  The cells relaying that information back up so that in and of itself causes leaky brain. It causes a breach of the blood brain barrier not able to utilize the nutrients because the spine is in such horrible shape in that position they are not getting oxygen. If you slumped down in your chair as you’re reading this and try to take a deep breath in and then maybe you sit up straight or straighter and you take a deep breath, you’re going to notice how much easier it is to take that breath in getting more oxygen sitting up.  Research also shows the forward head position causes a change in the neck curve, which causes de-myelination of the neuronal sheath (another word is MS). Brain injuries definitely cause depletion of oxygen to your brain, which means not giving the brain the environment to heal.

2. Toxicities and deficiencies. 
Biotoxins, mold, viruses, parasites, bacteria. When people hear bacteria they might think well I don’t have the flu, I’m not sick or I don’t feel that way because you think of bacteria as a cold or virus as the flu and that’s not the case.  It could present itself like migraines, low energy, brain fog. That’s more the biotoxins and then we can go into the environmental side of it like the glyphosate, herbicides,  pesticides, heavy metals. The brain LOVES different types of heavy metals like Mercury, lead, tin, aluminum.  They get caught in the brain, and if you think about yourselves like a a bucket and we fill them up with these toxicities, there’s not any room for nutrients and micronutrients like anti-oxidants, enzymes, vitamins or minerals to help make these reactions go to help give you the energy that you need to help you recover from the chronic illness.
That leads to deficiencies.

85,000 chemicals are registered in the US and none of them really have been tested for safety or tested how they interact, I mean the numbers are quite staggering. Radioactive elements I see being a big toxin like EMF’s causing brain issues and leaky brain especially because it breaks down the blood brain barrier. Yes 5G and wifi are huge for leaky brain!  Get away from that technology people!

Even at a young age these toxins are being introduced into our kids’ bodies, through food, air and injections that it’s even more important nowadays to make your body stronger to deal with the toxins and to be able to manage and get rid of them. What happens when we can’t get rid of them leads to more deficiencies in our our nutrients.

Infections like parasites, mold and Lyme Disease are big ones I find in the brain quite commonly.  These eat away at the layer and cause brain permeation.


Did you know last week was a FULL MOON? This is a time that parasites come out! It’s great to do parasite cleanses during the full moon to eliminate them.  A lot of people will say they don’t feel good around the time of the full moon, and if they are filled with parasites, this is when they really activate. Parasites are nocturnal, and have life cycles that go along with the full moon, so they are up reproducing in your bloodstream at night.  This means more anxiety, depression or insomnia. You of course want to make sure you are on my genetic protocol to make sure your drainage pathways are open before eliminating parasites, but you will want to do a parasite cleanse if this is your case. I love using my craniobiotic technique to kill parasites, but this mix is good to have on hand for each full moon if you aren’t near me!!  Use the code here  to order the full moon kit:  cellcorebiosciences.com/products/full-moon-kit

USE CODE: DRL06CZE

REMEMBER, the brain is made of 75% water.  In order to properly flush those toxins out, you need to be hydrated and get hydration into the cell! that’s where our kangan water comes in!

3. Mindset.  There is so much research on mindset.  I don’t like categorizing one is more important than the other, but we can’t ever out eat or out nutritional a bad mindset because we’re always going to revert back to our baseline. We might have the best strategy, we might have the best nutrition and detox program but unless our mind is ready for it and I don’t mean: “alright believe to achieve” or say these affirmations, if we don’t believe in our subconscious are unconscious, and if we’re constantly saying things consciously those affirmations that our unconscious doesn’t believe it’s it’s never gonna breakthrough. It might have short-term success but it’s all about reprogramming that fixed mindset into a growth mindset.

Mindset is the foundation with which we build our nutrition, we build our fitness, we build our sleeping we build everything because what that is whatever we focus on. Whatever mindset goes to whatever our subconscious believes to be true.

This is a toxic mindset:  things are never going to get better, I’m never gonna get over this, I’m always gonna end up in this position, I’m never going to have the life that I want. It’s a lot of never and always.  If you want to think about  the non serving thoughts and we want to be happy with who we are but if these thoughts are leading us towards non serving behaviors and actions and habits than that is what is limiting us in getting better.
If you’re  struggling with chronic illness with Lyme disease for instance, if we automatically think, I’ve tried everything and then you quit, you just haven’t found the right thing yet and it’s a process that we go through it’s not just a simple thing of OK I’m going to think positive today and then tomorrow everything is going to be better. 5 minutes a day count your wins.
If you don’t have the energy and you don’t feel like walking, go outside and walk into your driveway and back.  That is a win! Keep counting that as a win until the next win.  That retrains your mindset.

How do I fix it?

When we talk about leaky brain, that means decreasing inflammation throughout the body, making sure our cells are working, and all our organs like the kidneys, liver, and bowels.

I always address the cranial system first to make sure oxygen can get into the brain more effectively.  If you can’t get oxygen to the BRAIN, then forget about nutrition.

My #2 is making sure hydration is dealt in.  If we can’t get your cells hydrated, it’s really hard to get nutrients in your cells.  I believe every patient should have Kangan water

#3 Mindset and Emotional Healing.  It’s hard to do much else if your subconscious is blocking healing.  We must deal with some of these roots before progressing.

#3 getting the detoxification and methylation pathways working.  We need to start rebuilding the body by healing and feeding organs and pathways and then cleaning out toxins gradually.  Don’t go and do heavy metal clearing or big infection protocols when you first need to rebuild.

#4 Clear Infections.  Once your methylation is working properly, your organs will be dumping out chemicals, toxins, metals and BUGS.  Sometimes you need a little further help getting these critters out, but most the time the other toxins will release on their own.

#5 Load up with phyto nutrient rich foods, fermented foods and pre and probiotic rich foods.

#6 Get Moving.  Moving increase BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor).  More High intensity interval training increases this the most, but any movement will do.  Just Keep moving!  This moves your lymphatic system which is needed to get rid of inflammation!

OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Rose Oil.

Rose oil is one of the highest vibrancy oils that we have.  What do I mean?  Well when we talk about radioactive toxins like EMF’s we need high vibrancy to combat them.  Rose oil is great to add into your routine to help fight free radical damage from EMF’s.

It’s also a warm and loving oil.  This oil has turned to one of my favorites because of its such rich and vibrant smell.  It’s also wonderful for the skin with antiaging properties.

Make sure this is in your home!

That’s all for now.
Have a happy and healthy week.

What all disease begins with…

What all disease begins with…

Hey Warriors!  Happy Monday and Happy March!
I hope you enjoyed last month’s talk about molds and fungal infections and the gallbladder!

With all the craziness going on, I want to assure you not to feed into the fear of coronavirus.  Yes, it is a manmade virus, but it is not any more serious than the flu.  Many are recovering with proper care, and those passing are immune suppressed individuals. Also be aware that more individuals die from obesity per year than this.  Like 4X as many people pass. Please be aware that this is no “accident”.  The timing, the delivery, and the “making of vaccinations” is and was always in the plan.  IT has also been speculated that the mania is also overshadowing the invasion of 5G and corrupt political laws being swept under the rug. IT’s meant to distract you.

The  best prevention is always to keep your immune system strong, and the BEST way to do that is to know your weaknesses!  This is why my genetic based nutrition is so effective! 

I see all these people stockpiling on so many things based out of fear.  Our bodies are strong, you’ll miss out on a lot if you live in fear.  AND that is specifically how this plan works is through fear.

Yes, there are other options like high doses of vitamin C, ect. which are also great options, but in reality you will recoup quickly if your body’s immune system is strong.

Which brings me to our topic today.  What all diseases begin with.
_________________________________________________

This past weekend I was at a genetic seminar, and a guest speaker spoke about some concepts relating the emotional system to biochemical disturbances.  (this means the chemical processes in our body that make it work).

I want to reiterate some of what he was speaking about because I thought it was so simple yet so profound.

The originator of the chiropractic profession DD Palmer, stated that all disease starts with:
Shock, Trauma or Surprise

An unexpected, highly acute, and isolating conflict shock that occurs simultaneously in the psyche, the brain, and on the corresponding organ the “disease” is from.

This is why you hear me state many times when I explain things to go back and see where exactly trauma and shock has happened in your life, even starting with your birth… WHY?

All disease starts in TWO steps:

1. Incubation
2. Healing

Lets start with #1:  INCUBATION.  This is the phase where there is usually no signs OR symptoms. This is the fact that is wrong with typical modern medicine today.
For instance. take chicken pox.  The incubation period is 14-21 days.  This doesn’t mean you’ll get the pox or fever during that time.  You won’t see anything, but that is how long it takes to “show” the infection.
There’s no diagnostic test, you can do all the bloodwork in the world, MRI and it won’t show up. 14-21 days later, you wake up with chicken pox.

Do you know what the incubation time of cancer is? 10 years. 

One of the leading doctors in Germany who cured over 90% of cancer, Dr Hamer stated that : The longer the incubation period, the tougher it is. Mind you, he never used drugs or toxins.

In standardized medicine, signs and symptoms and diagnosis are what run the show.

Going to a specialist to get a diagnosis won’t get you well.  The diagnosis is formulated most of the time so insurance companies will pay.
If I would diagnosis all the time, honestly I would be wrong most of the time.

The Mayo Clinic which is known as a top medical facility has 15 acres worst of diagnostic equipment.
What is the #1 statistic they have?  Diagnose more patient than any other clinic.
#2 static?  They are WRONG 34% of the time.

In my eyes, and many holistic practitioners, what is more important than a “diagnosis” is the reason WHY and how to fix it, not the name of the disease. 

You can treat these things before the incubation period is OVER!  This is called holistic:)  This is BEFORE the symptoms show up.

That brings us to STEP 2.  Healing. 
Modern medicine works a little differently.  They usually wait till a symptom shows up. Cold, fever, rash, pain, tumor… Your doctor does a procedure or medication to stop the symptoms.  the symptoms come about the second part of disease the healing phase.  IN the healing phase, you don’t get any symptoms until it is past incubation. When and if the body says: Ok I’ve recovered from the shock or surprise, now i’d ready to rid the body of toxins.  That is when you throw up, diarrhea, have a fever or rash, or grow a tumor.

Your body is trying to get RID of the bad stuff.

IF you stop the symptoms, you stop the healing.
This can also push the body right back into incubation. The longer that period, the worse it gets.

Get rid of the problem right away, is our plan!
Sometimes this is why when individuals throw up after an initial cranial session, we say GOOD.  You’re getting the toxins out.

There’s ways to also find out if an emotional trigger is what is giving you your health problems today.

Every area in the body above the diaphragm, has a partner relationship below the diaphragm.  Here’s an example:
The nerves that go to the stomach to make it work, come from your middle back.  If you trace those nerves down they go all the way to the right hip. If you have a chronic stomach problem you might have a right hip problem.

What are some other relationships?

Outside of the right thigh- same nerve as the small intestine
Right knee- ileocecal valve
Thigh-ascending colon
Groin- hepatic flexor
Left inner thigh- transverse colon
Left thigh- splenic flexor of colon
Outside of left thigh- descending colon
Left hip- rectum

It’s a map.

What’s even more interesting?  The kidneys are called the little brain. If you put them together, they actually look like a brain!
Whatever the right kidney is doing or not doing the left brain is doing or not doing, and the left kidney is with the right brain.

In order to get past the healing:
You should always work with 5 systems of health:

1. Water. Most important is how much water is getting into your cell.  It’s not about alkaline water but alkalized water.  Well water is the best out there, and for us city folk Kangan water machines to actually hydrate yourself.  Otherwise you are just peeing out the gallons you drink per day.  If it can’t get into your cells your dehydrated.

2. Food. Food allergies are rampant from GMOs and toxins. The average American eats the same 25 foods.  Half of those are not efficient.  This is where genetic nutrition is key to figure this out. If you methylate properly you can digest about anything really.
3. Emotions. So many practitioners leave this out.  1/3 of your health lies in emotions!
4. Cellular Electricity.  Every cell is a rechargeable battery.  They can’t work on a dead battery, just like your cell phone can’t.  This is why treatments like PEMF and light therapy are helpful.
5. Brain.  Every part of your brain attaches itself to a part of the body!!
This is why I always attack this first:) IASIS which is a type of neurofeedback is also helpful to change some of the improper wavelenths in the brain.

I hope this was enlightening and helpful to you!

It might sound very opinionated, and I hope you don’t take it that way.

OIL OF THE WEEK

On the spotlight this week is DoTerra’s On Guard Hand Sanitizer!

This is what I use personally every day.
Most hand sanitizers although “state” they don’t have triclosan any longer still may contain trace amounts.  Triclosan is a hormone disruptor.  The Onguard spray uses all natural ingredients and has been shown in studies to decrease 98% surface infections.  It still does have some alcohol in it, so I wouldn’t recommend using all the time, since that will decrease your skin microbiota. Washing your hands thoroughly is the best defense!

Fungus and the Gallbladder…

Happy Monday Everyone. We are continuing on for the rest of the month about infections!  If you missed earlier in the month, I talked about sinus infections, sinus headaches and puffy eyes, don’t worry, head on over to my website to catch it under the “blog” tab.

___________________________________________

Fungus AMONG us. Yeah.  You’ll probably hear mold infections, mold toxins, mycotoxins again and again.  That’s because fungal infections are pretty rampant. Why?  Well, we gotta start at the beginning to get that answer. 

In a perfect environment within the body, we are born with flora (good bacteria) in our digestive tract. The body lays seven layers of acidophilus and other good bacteria with the help of colostrum (found in breastmilk) to coat and protect the lining of the intestinal tracts from parasites, bad bacteria and funguses. This protective coating prevents fungus and parasites from leaking through the intestinal lining and infecting the bloodstream.

Unfortunately, we are bombarded with wide spectrum antibiotics, which destroys the good flora. I’m sure if you’ve been around here you’ve heard me talk about antibiotics extensively. This exposure can even happen before we are born!

Many women that take antibiotics during pregnancy will, in turn, give her unborn baby a dose of antibiotics as well through the amniotic wall. Also, in some cases, antibiotics are introduced into a newborn’s bloodstream through the mother’s breast milk, which is a common occurrence with babies born through cesareans.

Many young children suffer from frequent ear infections (which is a cranial and lymph problem!) and are given antibiotics for treatment.

Throughout life, we are given antibiotics as a way of dealing with sickness. Whenever antibiotics are used, it destroys all seven layers of acidophilus and the other good flora and creates leaky Gut Syndrome(other things cause leaky gut as well). This is when the fungus eats its way through the intestinal lining and enters the bloodstream.

This is one way Leaky Gut Occurs and Allergies:
On its way through, the fungus leaves little pinholes behind, which allows proteins, carbohydrates and fats that have not yet been fully digested to enter the bloodstream. The immune system reacts and builds antibodies and enzymes to destroy what the body considers to be foreign objects and pathogens.
Let’s use broccoli as an example. Broccoli is good for you. Your body needs the necessary amino acids that it produces. When your body breaks down the broccoli into an amino acid, it still carries a broccoli signature. Because you have been prone to antibiotics, have fungus and have leaky gut syndrome, when the broccoli amino acids enters the bloodstream, the body believes that it is a foreign invader and creates antibodies to destroy it. It is no longer getting the good amino acid it needs to run effectively. We call this an auto-immune problem or a food allergy.

Antibiotic use disrupts normal digestion. This causes an overgrowth in fungus in the digestive tract, which kills good digestive flora leaving the intestinal wall exposed. This allows fungus to eat its way through the intestinal lining and get into the bloodstream. This, in turn, disrupts the immune system and contributes to autoimmune problems. These problems manifest itself in forms of food allergies and a malabsorption of nutrients.

At this point, the fungi proliferate throughout the whole system creating a cascade of different reactions, first of which is a craving for carbohydrates. The brain is a carbohydrate fiend. It utilizes 50-80% of all the carbohydrates we ingest. Fungus also loves to feed off carbohydrates and trace minerals. The problem is that the fungus eats the carbohydrates in our bloodstream making the brain crave carbohydrates.

Food manufacturers love to take advantage of this carbohydrate craving by enticing you. Just think about it, if you go into a grocery store, all you see are cakes, chocolates, cookies and candies. I see you girl scout cookies!!!
When you eat these sugar loaded carbohydrates, your insulin spikes, “insulin is the number one cause of aging and the number two cause of brain damage.” Hence the saying, “the less you eat, the longer you live” because you do not spike insulin.
When your insulin spikes, you end up storing the carbohydrates along with the fats and proteins. Now, you have put yourself in the position of unwanted weight gain.

The fungus that has proliferated the body also effects the brain. The fungus gives off a bowel movement, which is an offshoot of ethanol. This overpowers the immune system, entering the brain and disrupts neurotransmission for short term memory, causing mutation and malfunctions in the brain. This is one of the symptoms of a fungal infection.

WOAH okay, sorry that was a lot but that’s just how we can first get exposed to mold!  Different types of mold can also be in homes and foundations, bathrooms, and many other areas.  When we constantly breathe it in, it’s also a problem and produces similar effects in the body. A big spot I find is in the turbinates of the sinuses, they LOVE to hide here and give sinus and allergy issues. CRANIAL TO THE RESCUE.

Additionally, there are what are called mycotoxins that are toxins from mold in food. More and more crops are being infected and it’s pretty common now to find. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and food.   A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.  It causes a big histamine reaction in the body, and over time can cause a person to become very hypersensitive to so many foods and environmental agents. 

We’ve seen mold affect the gut AND the brain AND the immune system. 
But what about the gallbladder?

Let’s look deeper…..

Gallbladder removal is one of the most common operations in the United States.  Most are due to gall stones which are backed up bile. Some I have seen can be from a spasmed gallbladder from a shock or stress to the body. However, fungal infections are another cause:

The gallbladder’s main function is to store bile. Bile is a breakdown of red blood cells that have been crushed in the spleen. The spleen removes the necessary minerals and the red blood cells are processed and reutilized in the body. These minerals are processed back through the liver where they are bound to used cholesterol-forming bile acid.
This bile is supposed to be stored in the gallbladder for later use and excreted during heavy meals to help us digest fats. When the gallbladder is backed up, it doesn’t excrete the proper bile to digest fatty foods.

Because the fungus clogs up the gallbladder, it causes the bile acid to bleed into the pancreas. This causes the pancreas to create excrete insulin, which is a major cause of aging and also brain damage. Too much insulin in the blood causes hypoglycemia. Symptoms of hypoglycemia includes shakiness, pounding heart, crankiness and hunger headaches. Excessive insulin also makes your body store glucose, fats and proteins that you really don’t need. The pancreas is responsible for making enzymes that are crucial for digestion and for making chemicals necessary for proper body function.

“Because of the fungus, the bile acids damage the pancreas and destroys its ability to seek out cancerous cells and provide insulin, which slowly turns the body diabetic. When the gallbladder gets clogged up with fungus and the bile starts to back up into the liver through the liver ducts, eventually damaging the liver, which is the primary organ that produces chemicals in the body.” Because bile is no longer digesting fats, it cannot be turned into good cholesterol in the liver. This poses a major problem as all our hormones are made from cholesterol, so hormone issues will begin. Most individuals get the gallbladder removed at this point, which doesn’t fix the issue and eventually symptoms return or get worse.

The fact that fungal infections deprives our body of proper hormone balance causes a cascade effect which affects every aspect of our lives. Fungal infections cause multiple malfunctions throughout the body which results in sickness, cancer and an overall depressed sense of well being.  If your body isn’t happy and healthy, your relationships will not be either.

SO that’s it FOLKS.  Fungal infections are extremely common and hugely depend on the health of our gut, and oxygenation of our body.  Fungus hates oxygen.

Another cause of constant fungal infections is also heavy metal exposure.  If you’ve been battling chronic fungal infections, you probably also have a heavy metal issue that needs to get addressed.

Suspect you may have fungus issues?

Let’s talk.
Fungus can be tricky, but there are options. First you have to decrease your exposure.  We then look into building the body up a little through genetic based nutrition, especially the vitamin D and metabolic pathway.  Then we can start to attack the metals and fungus.  The attacking part looks different for different people, whether nutritional or other methods. Don’t just go trying to kill fungus without first having support!  You could feel REALLY bad .

Hope this was helpful.

Happy Monday Warriors!

It’s 2020!! I can’t believe it!  I was laughing with a patient this past week about not thinking we would make it to 2020 haha.  But, we definitely have arrived, and in full swing!

Thanks for all who came a couple weeks ago to our mobility workshop!  I hope you learned some tips to keep your body moving.  If you are sad you missed it, we WILL be holding another next month so make sure you let us know!

This year is gong to be a big year for my practice I can feel it.  I’m continuing to write my  book, and in fact alot of this blog is coming directly from that.  I’m also wanting to start a podcast very soon.  If someone is very familiar with running podcasts or would love to donate time, ect. let me know!  There’s so many things I’d like to do, but time!!! Right?  Finding that balance.

Also!  If you are a patient of mine, I have created a private account on MeWe.  Its a social media platform similar to Facebook.  I wanted to create a community for my patients to talk about various health topics, and not be censored like facebook does.  I also wanted a place for you guys to share maybe about things that you do and offer!  A real community!  It can feel isolated especially for some of my families that don’t vaccinate, to find like minded communities. So, if you don’t have an account GET ONE!  Add me Dr Rachel Hamel, then I will add you to the group!

The Brain!
Brain Fortitude.  The ability to utilize the brain to shut down unwanted thoughts and actions.

What do you mean doc?

Well, we know that the Brain controls every function in our body.  But what if it fails to turn on or shut off certain systems?
What is happening here.?  Usually, there is some malfunction in the frontal lobe in our brain.  The frontal lobe is the executive functioning, reasoning, rationale, impulse control, allows us to start and finish tasks and provides short term memory. This is a huge driver for us as adults and children.  You want to be able to access this part of your brain effectively and entirely. So how do we do that?

Well, the brain in general when you are able to utilize it, is better at inhibiting unwanted thoughts, actions and movements.
If not working right, it cannot put the brakes on the limbic system, emotional center.  You can get stuck in this emotional paradigm where all rationality goes out the window.  This is not where you want to be.

The frontal lobe is the most compromised when there is any injury to the head, brain or cervical spine. Children, are very sensitive when this section of the brain is compromised.  This can be from trauma during the birth process, or any falls or injuries during childhood.

Neuro-expression is how the nervous system expresses itself, and it gives us a window into how the nervous system is working.  For instance, a child’s behavior can be an outward expression of the integrity of the nervous system.  If a child can’t sit for a long period of time, maybe are running around or kicking the desk of a child in front of them at school, chances are they have dysfunction going on in their vestibular system.  If they are forceful, they could be lacking appropriate proprioceptive input and are trying to regulate their brain through this action. Many children may seem “defiant”, and although can be perceived this way, often times don’t want to do things that make their brain uncomfortable. Sometimes defiance is yes defiance, other times it’s a protective mechanism to avoid discomfort we cannot see.

What individuals react to will determine which part of their brain isn’t “online”.
What’s important to note here is that when children, and adults for that matter get into this state in their frontal lobe, cognitive or rational types of treatment doesn’t work effectively because they don’t understand. Methods like cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and meditation won’t really be helpful here until the frontal lobe is on board. Their frontal lobe isn’t online and so rationality is out the window.  When you regulate the sensory modulation and work with the frontal lobe, then you can do this other more rationale work and it be more successful!

The short story of this is that the brain ALWAYS has a reason to what it’s doing.  Sometimes controlling emotions and other functions in our body is difficult when certain areas of the brain aren’t really working.

If you or someone you know has difficulty regulating their emotions, or difficulty controlling certain body systems, you might look to the brain for the answer.  EVERYTHING in the body works better, when the brain is online…

So how do we make sure it is?
Work with the sensory nerves! Craniopathy and chiropractic manipulations with proper sensory/motor looping is where you’ll get the most success.  I often see many children who have gone through so many different types of therapy prior to finding my clinic. Behavior therapy, speech therapy ect.  Although some of these cognitive methods can provide some help, I find that many children aren’t even properly doing them because their frontal lobe isn’t online.  Once we start working with those sensory deficiencies, most children can then go to different therapies and get much greater results.  You can’t train something when the connection isn’t online!

This is not only for children, but for all of us.  Many patients say that movement for instance is so much easier now that their brain is working better.  Digestion is better, falling asleep is easier, and they aren’t reacting to stress as dramatic.

I hope you enjoyed this little snippet this week.

Despite all the negative things going on in our health system, I think 2020 is going to be a great year!

That is all for now.
Wishing you a happy and healthy week!

Fun Fact
It was said that if you dreamed of gathering juniper berries in winter, you would prosper. It is also noted that the berries of a common juniper signified honor or the birth of a boy.1

Plant Description
The common juniper, Juniperus communis, is an evergreen conifer tree that can grow up to 10 meters high and can live for as long as 200 years. The tree’s bark is grey-brown while the twigs of the tree are reddish brown. The leaves of the common juniper are needle-like with prickly points and are green in color. The tree also produces male and female flowers. The male flowers are small and yellow and grow near the tip of the twigs whereas the female flowers are green and eventually evolve into the purple fruit of the tree. The fruit is a berry-like cone that is fleshy and aromatic.2 doTERRA Juniper Berry essential oil is extracted from the berry of the common juniper plant.

Chemistry of Juniper Berry Oil 
Main Chemical Components: α-pinene, sabinene

One of the main chemical constituents found in Juniper Berry essential oil is alpha-pinene. Alpha-pinene is a monoterpene which, due to its chemical properties, can help uplift and renew when used aromatically. Another main chemical component in Juniper Berry oil is sabinene. For more information about the chemical constituents found in Juniper Berry oil or other essential oils, visit the doTERRA Science Blog.
