Pain on the right side of your body??? You might want to look into this….

Pain on the right side of your body??

In the past two years with the increasing demand on our bodies detoxification systems, one organ in particular keeps taking continued hits: the liver.The Liver is our filtration organ.  It’s constantly detoxing what we consume, breathe and lather on.  Just like a regular filtration system, when the filter is full, it’s not very efficient.  Respectively, the liver begins to sound its alarm to us that it needs a replacement, or in a more effective term HELP.Let’s first dig into the jobs of the liver:– It processes nutrients
– produces bile which helps us digest fat
– produces cholesterol and proteins
– controls 500 metabolic processes
– breakdown alcohol and medications
– detoxes the blood
– destroys old red blood cells
– produces hormones
– releases glucose into the blood
– regulates and stores glycogen
– stores ironThe liver is hit pretty hard when its detoxification phases get overburdened and overwhelmed.  This overburdening also means that those functions I just mentioned above become difficult as the liver struggles to keep afloat because of the high load of toxins.How are toxins being administered?
I think it’s an easier question to answer what isn’t being polluted.
  • Our air is increasingly getting more and more polluted, with aluminum released into the air, and radiation from electromagnetic frequencies (5G and more) creating radiation bubbles. Mold is also becoming an increasing problem with homes improperly built.
  • Our water is laden with chemicals, drugs, antibiotics, fluoride, chlorine, arsenic and most recent findings possible snake venom particulates.
  • Our food is sprayed to the max with chemicals or genetically modified as we like to call it frankenfood.
  • Our meat is sourced with corn and soy byproducts that are filled with mycotoxins
  • Many are injected with unknown particulates from recent vaccinations targeting liver tissue.
  • Beauty products, lotions and potions are filled with fragrances
  • cleaning supplies are laden with chemicals.
  • toxic emotions of fear, resentment, frustration and anger are plaguing our population
I could go on…

The point is.. our liver is SCREAMING for help.  And when we don’t pay attention to the warning signs of the liver, our body will relay it in other ways called referral patterns.

This brings us to the point of how the liver could be connected to the right side of the body….  There are certain pathways in our body called meridian pathways.  They correlate with every organ that we have in our body.  When an organ is not functioning adequately we can look to these meridians for answers as to which organ is having difficulty.

The meridian of the liver is on the right side of the body, going into the right side of the head, jaw, shoulder and shoulder blade, into the right hip, knee and into the foot. 

This means that any of those body location areas I mentioned, could be a result of the liver screaming through that channel…. It’s not always a mechanical problem with a muscle or joint when an area is in pain/tension. In fact, most chronic pain issues are organ related.

I’ve seen such a huge ramping up of the liver struggling in individuals the past two years that it’s almost not normal to find someone without a problem. Hormonal and digestive problems are another huge result of a bogged down liver, and those is through the roof!

So, where does that leave us?

Well, in addition to toxins that we need to take account for in our life, and begin to decrease, there’s also a couple other key points to mention with the liver.

#1 there could also be an underlying infection going on in the liver making it struggle.  Some big ones that I find are liver flukes (parasites), mold or mycotoxins and lyme and co-infections.  The liver will always struggle when there’s unwanted guests

#2 genetic hangups.  Now genetics aren’t everything, we have the power to change their expression, but it is important information to know where your weaknesses might lie.  For instance, there are certain genetic variations that make it difficult for a person in general to detoxify properly.  Which means if they are also bombarded with more toxins they will REALLY struggle.  It’s important to know these facts before going into a detox protocol and to clear things out. It could be really dangerous for a person if they don’t know these facts beforehand.

What to do?

Start working on what you are putting in on and around your body…. This is a big key.  We can’t escape all toxins, but we can control what’s in our vicinity as best as we can.

  • Stick to grass fed/finished foods and organic products to decrease toxins

  • get all natural beauty/cleaning products, check out EWG.org

  • get EMF remediation in your home/work from EMF pro.

  • Keep hydrated, and filter your water!! brita filters are total CRAP.  I prefer kangan water for ultimate hydration

  • start getting off medications and saying no to annual and follow up vaccinations.  Injecting through the blood is the most toxic form.

  • Clean your air through an Air Doc, and if you’re in a moldy home, remediate properly or move!

  • Get your genetics tested, and do a followup with Dr Rachel to customize a plan for you based on what nutrients you need for your liver!

  • castor oil packs are helpful to detox the liver

  • coffee enemas

  • infrared and red light therapy, I like biolight (check link below for discounts)

So.  If you have chronic right sided pain in your jaw, head, shoulder, hip or knee, look into your liver function.  Blood lab work will often miss if the liver is starting to wane, and sometimes only reveals when it’s so far gone.  But some key markers are if your liver enzymes start to rise, your cholesterol starts to rise as well as LDL, and your blood cells aren’t balanced.

If you’re looking for more help with your liver, book a genetic nutrition session here:

Buyer beware…..5G is here on your devices.

Buyer beware…..5G is here on your devices.

Hey Warriors!

Some of you reading the title of this blog may be thinking “I thought 5G was already on phones”.  Since, 2019 it has been displayed on your phone devices “5G”, however there’s REAL 5G, and there is 5G without the fast mm EMF wave. The 5G you’ve been seeing on your devices till now is 5G evolution, not 5G mm waves. This wave antennae is now in smartphones.

Just to keep you up to date on what antennae’s are utilized so far: all Smartphones Have WiFi antennae, Bluetooth and Cell signal Antenna. Each antenna exposes you to a different frequency on the Electromagnetic Frequency Spectrum.
The mm wave antennae now exposes individuals with a different level of wavelength, which is higher than any of those other antennae! These mm waves sit at between 24GHz and 100GHz.  In comparison,  3G and 4G cell signals use 800 to 1800 GHz, Bluetooth operates in the 2.4Ghz frequency and WiFi uses 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz.

There’s lots of other examples of devices on that EMF spectrum, for instance, getting an x-ray is a different amount of radiation than your wifi, and will affect our bodies differently.

As of right now, there are NO EMF meters that can measure 5G mm wave. .BUT THERE HAVE BEEN 100’S OF STUDIES ON POTENTIAL NEGATIVE HEALTH EFFECTS OF RF RADIATION AND ADDITIONALLY, OVER 40 SPECIFICALLY ON THE MILLIMETER WAVE.

How do you know if your device has the antennae?

  • Go to the Specs or Specifications Section of the Product Page of Your Phone
  • Look for the Connectivity Band or RF or Cellular detail
  • If you see mmWave listed, than it contains a 5G millimeter wave antenna
  • If you see Bands n257, n258, n259, n260, n261,n262 it has a millmeter wave antenna

Current smart devices are made with them and once the 5G Antenna is in the phone, the software will control if the antenna is sending or receiving the new high frequency EMF. To get these high frequencies to work efficiently it also calls for MORE technology. “These high frequency 5G signals carry lots of data, but don’t go very far and instead of going through walls like cell signals do, they tend to bounce off of buildings.
So the great people that work in telecom have added even more tech to the technology to try and get it to work better. That means massive MIMO and Beam forming apparatus will be added to the environment to help it along.  Again, what man thought adding more machines and more toxins to our environment would be a good idea?”

Here is a list of current 5G phones:

  • Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
  • Google Pixel 5a
  • Galaxy A32 5G
  • One Plus Pro
  • LG V50 Thinq 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10 5G
  • Moto 56 Mod
  • Sony Xperia Pro
  • Iphone 13

How to protect yourself:

It doesn’t seem at this point this technology although far more potent and dangerous will be going away.  So, we must take all precautions to protect against it wherever we go.  I highly recommend EMF pro for help to decrease its power through products you can wear on your body and put on your devices.  Additionally, distance is your friend.  Never keep your phones or any electronic devices on your body, and especially your children’s body.  Smart watches, headphones and bluetooth devices also add to more radiation, so less is key here. I would also recommend that you make sure your methylation is working appropriately to help detox the radiation out of the body.  Some nutraceuticals are phosphatidylcholine, carbon c60 and gingko.

Keep in mind EMF is already in our other technology with 3 and 4G, with loads of research studies showing its harm.  You’ll want to take even more precaution now with higher than ever frequencies and more antennas being put up in many neighborhoods.

There are ways apparently to disable the 5G on some of these devices, but I wouldn’t recommend getting a new smart device.  I think we are going to see many health implications of radiation poisoning from the addition of more tech into our environment.

Low Back/Groin Pain and your Kidneys?

Hey Warriors!
Guess what?!  Blogging is back!!
I’ve finished my new and upcoming book (thank you Jesus), and so I can slowly begin to get back into the blogging you all love!  It’s not out yet, you didn’t miss it, its still in development, but thankfully my part is finished:)

Between blogs I will be uploading an email on the upcoming podcasts, but I will leave those as separate topics.  If you haven’t subscribed to my podcast please do!  Unfiltered Healing is available on YouTube, Spotify and iTunes.

_______________________________________________________________

Low back pain or stiffness is a pretty common complaint. About 80% of people experience it at one point in their life, and some people chronically.

If you’re new here to my blogs, welcome.  If you’re not new, you know that I talk pretty extensively about the location of pain is rarely every where the problem is.  Why?  Pain is a signal from the brain. That’s it.  It doesn’t tell us where the pain is originating from, it just tells us “hey something is not in balance”.

There can be various difference reasons for pain to manifest in the low back region.  Too much sitting and not enough movement is really common, weakness in the core/abdominal muscles and backside (glute) muscles ( also really common), too much cranial tension (in the skull bones) causing the low back to compensate, unstable pelvic joint, toes are crammed together……  These are all examples of mechanical reasons for the pain in the back.  It could be upstream or downstream that’s the issue, but something in the structure of the body and subsequently how the nervous system is working is causing the issue.

However, lower back pain can also be related to certain organ’s needing attention.  What do you mean?

Something occurs called viscerosomatic pain referral patterns.  In other words, your organs have specific channels and pain patterns that can mimic as a mechanical problem.  For instance, if someone is having a heart attack they can feel pain down the left arm.  This is that referral pattern.

The lower back region in particular has a relationship with several different organs. The upper region of the low back is the kidneys, next in line is the ascending colon, reproductive organs are next, descending colon and finally the uterus/prostate at last lumbar region.

Depending on which organ is either inflamed or just not functioning properly, determines where in the low back you may feel it.  How does that work? The referral patterns.  The one I see most commonly in this region is the kidneys.  Now, we are taught in the education system that when the kidneys are malfunctioning you may feel something like “flank pain”, which is pain felt around the lower part of your ribs on your backside.
However, this most often only occurs with stone formation and kidney infection.  

The kidneys are our filtration system, and when that filter gets either overburdened or doesn’t have the right hydration/mineral balance, the organ starts to malfunction.  It’s very similar to when the liver, which is our biggest toxin filter gets too clogged up we can get a host of problems.

The kidneys biggest function is to remove waste from the blood. Every day the kidneys process about 200 quarts (190 liters) of blood and filters out about 2 quarts of waste products and extra water.
Waste could be a chemical that the body cannot use at all, or even if the body can use it, if it is present in excess of what the body needs then the excess is classified as waste. If wastes accumulate in the body, the results can be deadly, so waste needs to be removed quickly. Other functions of the kidneys include:

  • Urine formation
  • regulating water volume
  • regulate salt content
  • regulate blood pressure
  • produce hormones- erythropoietin, triggers the release of red blood cells
  • regulate the pH of our body
  • process vitamin D into an active form
Just like any organ we have been designed with, the kidneys are important. Typically, the most common occurrence that happens in my practice is dehydration.  Many many individuals are dehydrated, not only because they don’t drink enough water, but because the type of water they consume and the lack of minerals in their diet create dehydration. This is why I’m a huge proponent of food based minerals, and clean hydrating water like Kangan water.  If you want to know more about Kangan just email me and I’ll include you in the next live class.

Second, the kidneys get backed up in what is called the CBS pathways in methylation.  You can think of it similarly to detoxification.  When the biochemical pathways do not have sufficient vitamins/minerals either because of toxins, pathogens, not enough in the diet or genetic variations, this pathway in particular causes some damage to the kidneys.  Like I mentioned a moment ago, the kidney filters waste and a lot of that waste is chemicals we either breathe, eat or for some inject.  If the burden is too high the kidneys can’t keep up and it causes damage. Often times someone will not “feel” pain in the kidney, or might not even have abnormality in their laboratory work, but the organ isn’t functioning at its best.  How do we know?  The referral pattern.

The referral pattern for the kidneys for some starts in the lower back and wraps around the front of the pelvis into the groin region.  This is a pretty significant bull’s eye in my practice that I know the kidneys are at play.  It is important to rule out the mechanical issues first as well, because pelvic instability looks similar.  However, chronic pain here is a clue to the kidneys.

Remember, traditional medicine may have zero clue here.  If your labs and urine look “normal”, everything is perfect in their eyes. However, hidden toxins and hidden pathogens like parasites and mold toxins don’t show up in these tests.  These, in combination with other chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, air pollution, adjuvants in v@CCinations, to name a few really put a big stress on the kidneys, and sometimes the only way to let you know is through this referral pattern.

Here’s my tips:

1. Start with hydration.  You need CLEAN water, not tap or refrigerator, or bottled…those are mostly toxic..Get highly filtered water and then add minerals in to help you absorb it.  Better yet, get kangan!

2. start taking a toxin inventory….. Is your food organic and non gmo?  Cleaning products and beauty products organic and clean by EWG standard?  use of fertilizers, pesticides, weed killers…. Aromatic things like febreeze, fragrances and perfumes…5G towers near you, or EMF protection(radiation is toxic), need your nails done all the time, use plastic bottles, mold is in your home, you’ve done many v@CCinations, you take pharmaceuticals….. this isn’t an exhaustive list but you get the picture.  Start taking inventory and begin to change out things that you can one at a time.

3. Get a customized nutritional plan to make sure that CBS pathway and others are working effectively to get out the toxins, and also to screen for mold and other pathogens that might be lurking around.  It doesn’t take a lot, but a few key vitamins and minerals can help tremendously here. Unfortunately, our food even if clean just isn’t enough anymore because our soil is void of minerals.  Most everyone needs supplementation now.

4. Sauna and infrared light are also great tools to help take the toxin burden off, by getting toxins out through the sweat.

5. Eat organ meat.  The best way I’ve found to build organs is to utilize organ meats.  They’ve been around a long time and for good reason.  If you don’t particularly love eating organ meats  ( need to be grass fed), like myself I recommend the brand heart and soil as they are in capsule form which is easier on the palate.

 

That is all for now.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy week.

The impact of genes and heavy metals + Melissa Oil Benefits

The Impact of Genes and Heavy Metals

Hey Warriors!

It’s yet again another week, and it was definitely a hot one this week, whew.  Speaking of hot, I HIGHLY recommend if you haven’t watched the FULL documentary of Plandemic, do so!  It just released this last week and it is a good one.  You won’t find it on normal media sights, because they ban it everytime! The only way you can watch the full video is through the platform londonreal that releases all information without censoring. If you haven’t heard of it, it is the most revelatory film on what is driving the vaccine agenda, the various roles of the WHO, Bill Gates, Tedros Adhanom, Anthony Fauci and more.
Going deep into what is really happening with mainstream media, Silicon Valley tech giants, big pharma and our health protection agencies.
This film will fundamentally shift the discourse around Coronavirus, the lockdown and the vested interests involved.

I honestly find if hard to talk about health topics, when so much is going on around us, but there is a lot of good happening too.  So be encouraged.  A lot is getting blasted open, people are healing and getting restored.  Remember to keep joy in your life at all costs.  Take breaks from information like this and enjoy the ones around you. Get outside, smile and be around people.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Okay, on to this week’s topic :  Genetics and Heavy Metals. 

Last time we talked about Leaky Brain, which was a pretty big hit!  A lot of people had no idea about this concept or what causes it.  Cause #2 for leaky brain is TOXINS.. As as we know toxins are quite literally everywhere.  Food, Air, Water, Dental Materials, Cleaning/beauty products, EMF’s, and injections to name a few!

Part of that list includes heavy metals.  Although, slight amounts of some heavy metals, such as iron,, zinc  and copper, are essential for enzymatic activities in our body, other metals like lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury, are toxic for humans. Here is a list of where they are found and what they do.  This isn’t an all extensive list, but is a good start. 

Since we are exposed to these metals on a pretty regular basis, how are body responds to them depend on different internal and external environments. 
It also of course depends on the amount of the exposure and how the exposure was administered.  For instance, in a vaccination, the heavy metals are injected and bypass our internal detoxification organs(because we aren’t ingesting them) for breakdown, so this is a much higher and detrimental amount. 

We know now some of the serious side effects of heavy metal toxicity such as :  Loss of bones, kidney destruction, vascular disorders, developmental dysfunction and cancer are some of the well-known health problems triggered by heavy metals.  

Genetics and genetic variations are considered an internal contributing factor, and as the world of genetics is ever expanding, they are considered as novel and important contributors in heavy metal body retention and metabolism.  
I very often see heavy metals affecting a person’s mood (depression or anxiety), gut dysfunction, headaches, increasing infection load like candida and neurological dysfunction.  Another common finding is skin rashes and irritations. 

There are certain genetic variants such as MTHFR, PON1, DMT1, GSH which are proteins that are either directly or indirectly involved in how we process and break down heavy metals.  This shows that heavy metal metabolism plays a huge role in a person’s sensitivity and severity of health effects.
This is HUGE news!

This is part why I got so interested in looking into genetics and why certain people handle substances well and others not.  Or why one patient got well with something and the next didn’t.  Genetics are like our own blueprint, and can give us so much insight into how to know how each of our bodies uniquely work!  The more you know about it, the more you can help your body by enhancing it.  It might I add also save a TON of $ knowing what is optimal for you and what isn’t….

 So again… Just to recap, certain variations in genes make it hard for that person to detoxify against heavy metals.  That means that all those “heavy metal” detoxes and protocols out there, could possibly be doing someone major harm for certain individuals if they can’t metabolize it!  

The purpose of most heavy metal detox programs is to utilize something to attract the metal to it.  The most utilized one now is called zeolites, which are made from volcanic ash.  Before diving into genetics I used to use these remedies all the time. As the metals attach to it, your body is then supposed to eliminate it.  However, many had very severe symptoms like fatigue and headaches even though zeolites are typically very safe.  My instincts are that certain individuals because of these genes have a VERY hard time eliminating them.  

Keep in mind, actual increased exposure to these metals can also shut down certain genetic enzymes as well, so we must get them out, but we must get them out safely. 

Let’s talk for a minute about what each of these Genes Do. 

1. Metallothionein 2 A (MT2 A).This gene is a cysteine rich protein located in cytoplasm of cells.  These proteins are involved in body responses to both xenobiotic heavy metals, such as mercury, cadmium, arsenic. MTs are able to bind to heavy metals via their thiol groups and provide a protection against these materials in the body. 

2. Metallothionein 1 A (MT1 A). While the expression of MT2 A is induced by the presence of several metals, such as copper, zinc and cadmium, the expression of MT1 A was shown to be merely cadmium.  So this one is particularly important when those with high levels of this metal show up!

3. Divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1). DMT1 transports not only iron, but also other metals like cadmium and lead. Other investigations also demonstrated an association between iron levels and the expression rate of DMT1 in the intestine. Accordingly, lower body iron levels can lead to higher rate of DMT1 expression and increasing the uptake and recovery of iron. However, over expression of this transporter can cause duodenal absorption of other biochemically similar metals, such as cadmium and lead.

4 .Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR).  A LOT of people have heard of this gene by now.  It does a LOT of things including: being a crucial enzyme in amino acid metabolism, is responsible for catalyzing the conversion of 5,10- methylene tetra hydro folate to 5- methylene tetra hydro folate, which is a co-substrate for re-methylation of homocysteine to methionine. Deficiency of MTHFR can cause homocysteinemia and some disruptions in metabolism of folate.
Genetic variations in MTHFR gene were shown to be associated with different conditions, such as depression, schizophrenia, inflammatory bowel diseases, and hyperhomocysteinemia.  TT homozygotes were suggested to be more sensitive to heavy metals and other environmental toxins.

5.Paraoxanase 1 (PON1). Paraoxonase 1 (PON1), (also known as A esterase), is a liver secreted glycoprotein, is responsible for anti-inflammatory and antioxidant defenses after its association with high-density lipoproteins (HDL) in bloodstream. So far, associations between PON1 genetic variations and different conditions, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, depressive and bipolar disorders, gestational diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance, have been shown by different research. 

6.Glutathione (GSH) related genes. Have you heard of glutathione before?  We naturally make it. Ligandins or glutathione s-transferases (GSTs), are a group of enzymes able to conjugate the reduced form of glutathione (GSH) to xenobiotic substrates. This process finally leads to water solubility of these substrates and their easy detoxification.
Individuals with these genetic variants do really well with adding in glutathione to chelate heavy metals, since they don’t produce glutathione as well.  

Sorry for the chemistry lesson there, but it’s sometimes interesting to know what these genes are actually doing.

Having this information is extremely helpful in knowing that individuals limitations.  We can then give specific nutrients and recommendations to help safely and easily detoxify heavy metals if they are present.  Again, we don’t want to just go and do heavy metal clearings on everyone. It’s not safe, and can cause some real mitochondrial damage. If you have those silver amalgum fillings, we must get those out before doing a bunch of heavy metal clearing.  Going with a safe biological dentist is key for safety here. 

Heavy Metals and Sensitivity…
When you have heavy metal toxicity you can become very sensitive to many things.  One is EMF’s or electromagnetic frequencies.  This is because heavy metals act like an antennae for these frequencies pulling them into the skin and tissue through the sweat glands.  
If you’ve been with me for a little while you KNOW, that EMF’s are bad news.  A huge portion of coronavirus is the increased radiation of 5G causing toxic load. 

So, if you know that you have amalgam fillings for instance, or lots of heavy metal toxicity from vaccinations or other means, then it is WISE to keep your distance from Wifi, bluetooth and other forms of EMF’s.  

For more information about your genes, make sure you schedule a genetic nutrition session and we’ll go over the ones for you that are at play.

OIL OF THE WEEK

This week we are talking about Melissa OIL.  This is the QUEEN of all oils….Lemon balm – also called melissa essential oil, short for its Latin name Melissa officinalis – is distilled from the leaves, which are quite easy to grow and replenish. Lemon balm comes from the same family as peppermint, which is typically known for being prolific and even invasive.

In spite of easy-growing techniques, the leaves themselves yield very little essential oil. So it isn’t a question of how quickly the plant produces but how much it must produce in order to yield a true, pure essential oil.

CANCER PREVENTION POTENTIAL OF MELISSA
Within my protocols and recommendations, lemon balm stands out as absolutely valuable due to its cancer prevention potential. As researchers uncover more and more about the mysteries of cancer and the potential that God-given substances have to erase it, I grow more excited about our work with essential oils.

Lemon balm (melissa essential oil), for example, went through an extensive study in 2014, testing its ability to mitigate brain cancer cells. The results taught scientists much about the way the composition of lemon balm interacts with brain cancer cells. In the end, they found that a major part of lemon balm – citral – had numerous effects on the process and behavior of brain cancer and “may be of potential interest for the treatment” of this particular kind of cancer. (1)

4 MORE BENEFITS OF MELISSA ESSENTIAL OIL
Until we know just how to maximize lemon balm (melissa essential oil) as a cancer prevention and even treatment, lemon balm can benefit our lives in many ways, from daily comforts to long-term effects.

1.  ANTI-DIABETIC ACTIONS
Diabetes affects more and more people every day, from type 1 lack of insulin production to type 2 lack of insulin sensitivity. For type 2 diabetes, diet and lifestyle changes are a huge component of treatment.

Where diet and lifestyle are indicated, you are likely to find an essential oil to help as well. Such is the case with lemon balm, which has been tested as an anti-diabetic essential oil. Mouse studies suggest that even small amounts of lemon balm essential oil can help to curb type 2 diabetes. (2)

It’s important to know your diabetes diagnosis well before looking toward additional nutritive treatment like essential oils. Once you understand what your body needs, you can look to oils like lemon balm to assist treatment.

Application: Use lemon balm essential oil as part of your shift toward healthy mind and body lifestyle decisions to combat diabetes. See some of our other favorite essential oils for diabetes here.

2. HEALING COLD SORES
Not only are cold sores uncomfortable and unsightly, they are a virus that can be transmitted. In fact, cold sores fall under the umbrella of herpes – the herpes simplex virus. So if you are struggling against cold sores, it’s not just a soothing reprieve you need. You need an antiviral!

Many essential oils are antivirals and could be used against cold sores. Lemon balm, though, appears to be directly effective against the herpes simplex virus. (3) As part of a soothing lip balm, you can address both the need to sooth painful sores and attack the virus at its root.

Application: Include a few drops of lemon balm in a melted mixture of a bit of coconut oil and beeswax. Pour into a small tin and let set up. Remember not to share this lip balm – it’s a source of healing and you don’t want to share your cold sore, as well!

3. COGNITIVE CALM & RELAXATION
Lemon balm is traditionally used for its calming effects. Essential oils are perfectly suited for this purpose, with easy application (just breathe deep!) and relaxation promotion. Lemon balm may do much more than just relax you, though.

For example, one study published in 2012 demonstrated the ability that lemon balm has to directly affect the brain and neurotransmitters. The specific action studied actually has implications for improving cognitive function and even reversing the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. (4)

Such direct effects on the brain show us how deeply essential oils work in our bodies. Simply inhaling an oil like lemon balm is not just relaxing us because we like the scent, but it’s actually helping to change things deep within ourselves!

Application: Use a drop or two of lemon balm in calming and cognitive-enhancing blends. Diffuse for room-wide calming benefits or inhale directly for more targeted and specific results.

4. BUG REPELLENT
You’ve probably noticed by this point that bug repellent effects are a repeated benefit of many essential oils. It’s not universal for all essential oils, but many have shared components that are effective against mosquitoes, ticks, and other pests. With Lyme disease on the rise, this is more important than ever. For lemon balm, the shared component is citronellol and citral, shared with the popular bug repelling oil citronella.

Sometimes, these natural components are much more effective than synthetic alternatives. As one study noted of essential oils, “these natural products have the potential to provide efficient, and safer repellents for humans and the environment.”

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

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.
