One of the most powerful teachings I've been gifted to receive was the teaching about grace.  Grace means that there is a divine energy (that has many names) moving through us at all times.  This is the energy that grows the sapling to a fruit-bearing tree and allows the bird to find food and a nesting place.  This divine energy is always there supporting us toward our highest good.  But we, as conscious human beings, get lost in "doing".  We worry and strive, denying that we are exactly where we need to be, forgetting to connect to the ever-present grace guiding our way.  I find that when I meditate, I can drop the fears, the striving to be better and the toxic thoughts and in that space I can connect to grace.  Much like the sapling, I grow towards my full potential naturally. 

Interestingly, this teaching applies to our bodies as well.  I have learned, along with  modern science, that the body has a state of grace called homeostasis.  Homeostasis is an innate process that continually keeps the body moving towards health, as long as it is not interfered with.  Toxins in our food source and environment have become one of the leading contributors to ill health.  This is because they take the body away from its natural state of grace "homeostasis". 

So as meditation can help us cleanse the mind, I participate in and recommend to all of my patients, a thorough body Detox once per year to help cleanse the body.  Remember, we have all we need to be healthy in body, mind and spirit, we just need to remove interference and return to our natural state of grace.   Until our next adjustment...

Yours in health,

  Creating Health from the
health apple

It has become the consensus among natural health care providers that toxins are one of the leading contributors to ill health.  Since 2006 I have been educating myself on detoxification.  After many seminars, books and experimentation I now offer a simple, safe and effective Bio-Detoxification program for InnerMovement practice members to decrease the harmful effects of toxic overload. 

Where are the toxins coming from?

What I see clearly is that in this industrial, chemically-dependent world we live in we can't help but be bombarded with harmful toxins each day!  Did you know that the shampoo you use has chemicals that have been linked to early puberty and Breast Cancer?  And that the Fluoride in your toothpaste is deadly in large doses and is linked to Osteoporosis?  And that every vegetable you and your family consume (unless organic) is sprayed with lethal pesticides categorized as #1 acute toxins by the EPA?  And that our chicken and beef are pumped with antibiotics that clear our GI tract of helpful bacteria that serves as our primary immune response.  And that the majority of food, in the middle isles of the grocery store, have preservatives and chemical additives that have an accumulative toxic effect on the body.   And that the Industrial agent used to manufacture the plastics we store food in (Acrylamide) is a known neurotoxin and is linked to causing cancer.


How do our bodies become toxic?

On a daily basis we are hardly aware of the numerous toxins we ingest, breathe in, slather on our bodies and sometimes consciously consume.  The liver is primarily responsible for filtering toxins from the body but it is also dually responsible for processing carbohydrates.  If the liver gets overloaded from too many toxins or too much sugar (Each year the average American consumes 150 lbs of sugar and 566 cans of soft drinks ("liquid candy")(1))), the body becomes overwhelmed and cannot filter the toxins out of the body nor process the sugars appropriately.  This leads to fat storage, weight gain and internal toxicity.  If you have seen the movie "Super Size Me" you have seen the effects that toxins we ingest have on the body.  Symptoms such as frequent headaches, fatigue, constipation, joint pain, digestive upset, increased frequency of colds and flus will begin to arise.  When the body is in this toxic state the internal environment is more susceptible to overgrowth of yeast and harmful bacteria, parasitic infections, food allergies, and viral infections.  If the toxicity is not decreased it will eventually begin to destroy the intestinal lining and can lead to a more serious condition called increased gut permeability (leaky gut syndrome).  Once this occurs it can be a slow road back to health because the body is unable to absorb what it needs from the foods you eat nor can it filter the things that cause harm.

How can I cleanse the toxins from my body?

Ask Dr. Heidi, who specializes in Bio-Detoxification, about this simple, yet effective detox plan which combines a nutrient packed diet, with a detoxification beverage, weekly detoxifying foot baths and cleansing herbs to help your body eliminate toxins, prevent disease and jump start your weight loss program.
