The Healing Template

The most often recommended starting point for clients is a healing strategy designed to assist the body to return to a state of optimal health. This healing strategy looks to work cooperatively with your own organs of drainage and elimination, and safely setting the stage for a deeper level of toxin removal if need be.

To get a better understanding of this strategy you can track your own progress with the Healing Template shown below. This healing template is a guide on how the body heals, from inside out and top down.


Tips for Health

Here are a couple of suggestions to assist with the process of healing from within. Remember, each day you have a choice to make it easier for your body to get well or to work against it. These tips are to help you work with your body.

Water consumption is essential and we ask that you drink at least half your body weight in ounces each day; i.e. 100 lbs equals 50 ounces per day.

Regular exercise is a vital component to wellness and a combination of cardiovascular exercise and strength training will assist you in your healing journey and help to improve your overall well being.

Lastly, sleep is critical to revitalizing your health and we ask that you try to get a minimum of eight hours of sleep each night.

BioEnergetic Medicine

A brief review: The human body is an organism composed of various systems. These systems are made up of organ groupings. The organs are composed of tissue. The tissue is made up of cells. The cells are composed of compounds. The compounds are made up of molecules, and those molecules, comprising everything within our bodies, are made up of atoms. Remember this from primary school?

An atom contains a nucleus full of protons and neutrons. Orbiting the nucleus are electrons. The spin of these electrons is what gives a substance its vibrational frequency.

No two substances on the planet have the exact electronic spin (vibration). Our bodies recognize substances based on their atomic structure and/or vibration (frequency).

Vibrational medicine is resonance medicine. Do you remember the theory of resonance from school? Here is a simple experiment that demonstrates resonance: if you have two grand pianos in a room and you strike a chord on one of the pianos then lift the lid on the other grand piano, you will see that the same chord is vibrating on the other grand piano. This is “resonance.” Two things resonate if they contain the same vibrational factors. Have you ever used or heard the term, “I really resonated with him/her/that”?

There are specific studies showing the frequency of healthy tissue verses diseased tissue, and much has been documented on the subject.

Through testing modalities, we are able to see what substances the body “resonates” with. These can be microbes such as viruses that have set up camp and are supported within the diseased body. Or it might be a nutritional substance that the body resonates with that could help return it to its natural state.

Energetic medicine is just that — a way of tapping into the body to see the factors needed to bring it back to a state of health.

Vibrational Medicine is the foundation of BioEnergetic Medicine.

An Introduction to Homotoxicology

Homo means human and toxicology is a science that deals with toxins, therefore, homotoxicology is the study of human toxins. The object of homotoxicology is to stimulate and regulate the body’s self healing capabilities thereby eliminating homotoxins and ultimately leading to the resolution of illness. Homeopathic remedies are utilized throughout this process and are customized to each patient’s individual needs. Electro-Acupuncture (EAV) is a non invasive testing modality offered at each appointment and its primary function is to provide energetic insight into the physiology, biochemistry and pathology of our patients.

There are six phases in Homotoxicology representing the phases the body uses either to eliminate toxins or deposit them in some part of the body in an attempt to maintain health. The six phases are listed below.

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Phase 4 Phase 5 Phase 6
Excretion Reaction Deposition Impregnation Degeneration Neoplasm

Here is an example of how the phases work. The body starts at Phase 1. This is where the body comes into contact with a toxin such as breathing in a toxin.

In Phase 1 the body would try to excrete the toxin by sneezing, coughing, sweating, vomiting, or pushing it through the urine and feces. If the body is unsuccessful at excreting the toxin it then moves to Phase 2.

In Phase 2 the body begins to react to the toxin through inflammation. Here is where the body produces a fever, mucus, swelling, etc. This is the natural process the body uses to move the toxin to Phase 1 where it can be excreted. If this process is stopped for any reason the body moves to Phase 3.

In Phase 3, the body takes the toxin and deposits it somewhere in the body. The idea is that when it gets enough resources it will come back later and get the toxin and move it out through Phase 2. If this doesn’t happen and a new toxin comes in, the body will move to Phase 4.

Phase 4 is the impregnation phase. This is created when the body places one toxin on top of another toxin. Now the area is unable to continue to function and moves to Phase 5.

Phase 5 is the degeneration phase. This is where the body stops functioning properly and begins to break down. Many people die in Phase 5. Some of the disease processes that are listed in Phase 5 are fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, tuberculosis, and heart attack. (Some people move through phase 5 without symptoms other than fatigue.) If the body continues to accumulate toxins, it will eventually move to Phase 6.

Phase 6 is neoplasm, also known as the cancer phase.

Natural Relief for allergies

It’s no surprise that there has been a sharp increase in allergies over the past 20 years. More and more I hear, I never used to be affected by pollen, until now. Many of us in the natural health care field believe the increase in allergies is related to the increase in toxins in our environment.

That being said, the underlying cause for each person allergies may be different which is why I recommend a BioEnergetic Assesment to discover the specific irritants and create a customized remedy just for you. With a BioEnergetic Assessment, I can specifically address the toxins that cause watery eyes, sneezing, wheezing and runny noses that many allergy suffers deal with.

Two great products I use to help alleviate allergy symptoms are Isopathic Phenolic Rings and Detoxosode Pollution-Environs. Both remedies contain homeopathic ingredients that work synergistically with the body to relieve symptoms and return the body to homeostasis. Allergy relief and desentization to toxins can be done effectively through imprinting and inverting, two techniques I routinely use in my practice.

Autism Awareness

A week ago the Centers for Disease Control reported that the autism rate is now 1 in 88 children, a significant increase since 2000 when the rate was 1 in 150 children. In the weeks to come much will be written about why the increase, and what is being done to deal with this epidemic.

Because I work with children on the spectrum, I will be asked my opinion about why the rise in autism and my answer today is the same as it was last year and the year before that. I, like many in the field, believe environmental toxins coupled with genetic factors are most likely the leading causes to autism. I also believe that children with autism can get well, recover and even lose their diagnosis. I have been fortunate to see recovery happen, and it does so but not without a great deal of commitment and dedication by the family and many treatment providers.

How does recovery happen? There is no magic bullet that is for sure. Research suggests that early intervention is critical in treating children with autism. It has been my experience that therapies alone are not enough. Why, because many children with autism have difficulty detoxifying toxins which result in compromised immune systems that ultimately lead to a myriad of health problems. To me it’s simple, children who are not well, cannot learn. In my practice I have seen children who utilize a more holistic approach, including alternative therapies such as special diets, and homotoxicology, in combination with traditional therapies report significant improvements in their overall health. In many cases, health related symptoms resolve within the first few months and rapid progress is noted.

Natural support for colds and flu

There are many symptoms that can be associated with colds and flu and to find what remedies are going to work the best for your needs, here is a list of recommendations broken down by common symptoms. These recommendations are based on successes from other individuals but you may need to mix and match to fit your particular symptoms and needs.
Throat spray tone, xenoforce, and temple guardian for initial onset of cold like symptoms. These initial remedies are designed to help support the body’s natural immune defenses creating healthier stronger bodies.
If the symptoms have not been alleviated within a few days it is best to utilize a more specific approach to target the xenobiotic. The following recommendations are broken down by symptoms to find the best combination for your needs.
• Sinus Congestion:
o Sinus Chord: homeopathic drainage blend includes red onion to assist with burning eyes, sneezing, and sinus congestion from colds and allergies.

o Core Sambucus Blend: spagyric botanical traditionally used for support with influenza, sinus issues, mucus, and lymph drainage.

• Chest Congestion:
If your symptoms have moved down into your chest we recommended these products to help break up the mucus and drain the toxins out of the body.
• Flu-Tone: homeopathic drainage support for colds, viruses, and flu-like symptoms.

• Core Myrrh Blend: botanical formulation traditionally used for lung congestion, breaking up mucus and pathogenic burden.

In addition to natural remedy support you can also take hot baths for fevers, drink hot tea, consume chicken broth (preferably from an organic or free range source), and gargle with salt water for sore throats.
If you are still experiencing symptoms such as fever, fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, or pain and headaches after 5-7 days please contact me to make an appointment. There may be some underlying issues that need to be addressed to help your body fight off the pathogens.

Remember to take care of yourself and that prevention is usually the best medicine.

Alternatives to the flu vaccine

I’m sure you have seen the posters everywhere, advertising the flu shots in places like Target, CVS and Walgreens. It’s the only real way to avoid getting the flu, right? I’m not convinced that it is, and many of you are not as well. So instead I have listed a couple of alternatives to consider if you are looking for safe and effective supplements in place of the flu vaccine.

Flu-Tone is a homeopathic remedy formulated to stimulate and support the body’s immune system during the onset of the flu. The key ingredient, Anas barbariae, also known as oscillococcinum, has been historically used to relieve cold and flu-like symptoms. Spagyrically-processed herbs, such as Echinacea and Lapacho, have been included for all-around immune enhancement.
Another main ingredient in this formula is the Influenzinum nosode, which is designed to trigger the immune system to target and dispose of influenza-related viruses. With its proven homeopathic formulation, Flu-Tone is a powerful, yet gentle remedy to assist with the onset of cold or flu-like symptoms.
I generally suggest using Flu-Tone prophylactically, from October to March and have had great success with just this remedy alone!

Another great supplement to use is during the winter months is Vitamin D3. It used to be thought that Vitamin D3 was only good for prevention of weakened bones and rickets but as more research is being done the connection between Vitamin D3 and the body is wide ranging. Research has shown that using higher doses of Vitamin D3 lowers the incidence and severity of the flu, in addition to improving a number of other health conditions such as depression, bone health, cancer and immune function.

Vitamin D Dose Recommendations:
Age Dosage
Below 5 35 units per pound per day
Age 5 – 10 2500 units
Adults 5000 units
Pregnant Women 5000 units

Gluten Intolerance

How many times have we heard, you are what you eat? How many times have you heard me say, the gut is the second brain? For years now I have said to my patients that if you want to feel better quickly, start by eliminating gluten.

For those of you who don’t know what gluten is, it’s a protein found in wheat, barley and rye products. Most cereals and breads contain gluten. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease resulting in a true intolerance to gluten. Mark Hyman, MD stated in his article Gluten: What you don’t know might kill you, “a recent large study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that people with diagnosed, undiagnosed, and “latent” celiac disease or gluten sensitivity had a higher risk of death from heart disease or cancer”. He also states, “The New England Journal of Medicine listed 55 “diseases” that can be caused by eating gluten. These include osteoporosis, irritable bowel disease, inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, cancer, fatigue, canker sores, and rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and almost all other autoimmune diseases. Gluten is also linked to many psychiatric and neurological diseases, including anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, dementia, migraines, epilepsy, neuropathy (nerve damage) and, autism”. People who suffer from gluten insensitivity may exhibit the classic symptoms of celiac disease, yet have no detectable intestinal damage, and test negative for certain key antibodies.

How does gluten intolerance/sensitivity specifically relate to brain function? Once gluten is ingested, a biochemical process occurs ultimately causing an inflammatory response that is detrimental to brain health. Alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and autism all are associated with inflammatory brain function.

So how do you know if you have gluten intolerance? There are gluten allergy/celiac disease tests that are available through Labcorp or Quest Diagnostics. The testing may be expensive and may not always show the true picture of gluten intolerance or sensitivity. I generally recommend elimination of gluten and then see how you feel. Most people report a significant improvement in how they think and feel in a relatively short period of time.

If you are struggling with finding foods to replace your gluten products, here is a short list that hopefully will make the transition easier.

Why Should I Take Digestive Enzymes?

I have been asked this question again and again, “Why do you recommend digestive enzymes?” In order to have optimal gut function, I believe that digestive enzymes are a critical component. Simply stated, digestive enzymes are enzymes produced in your body to aid in the absorption of foods you eat. However, it is not uncommon for most people to experience trouble in breaking down incoming foods, and consequently nutrient uptake is compromised.

There is a ripple affect that happens in the body when the digestive system is out of balance. Let’s say, for example, that your stomach acid, known as hydrochloric acid, is low. Without enough acid, the proper signal will not be sent to the pancreas telling it to release more digestive enzymes. Thus there will also be a lack of enzyme activity in the small intestine, allowing undigested food to pass through. And trust me, you do not want undigested food reaching the colon — the outcome is unfavorable, to say the least. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a lack of digestive activity.

The types of digestive enzymes are many and will vary depending on what your body needs. There are even digestive enzymes now available to aid in the breakdown of gluten, making it possible for people with gluten sensitivites to eat those foods once again. The long and short of it, just about everyone can benefit from from digestive enzymes. Together, along with a BioEnergetic Assessment, we can determine which particular enzyme is right for you.
