    ADVANCING NUTRITIONAL THOUGHT VIA THE

    MINERAL-MIND-BODY-SOUL INTERCONNECTION

    As our minerals regulate nearly every function of the body, and as mineral imbalances can be linked to nearly every dis-ease, we cannot ignore the importance of minerals when we talk about health or nutrition.  Yet, most of the health field turns a blind eye to minerals (let alone nutrition as a whole), happy to prescribe medication instead when a problem arises.  Meanwhile the field of nutrition loves to focus on generic diets (keto, paleo, vegan, Atkins, Weight Watchers, etc) which are easy for the public to understand but ignore the individual biochemical foundation (and thus unique needs) of each person.  This bio-individuality is not adequately understood in part because....

    THE NUTRITIONAL LINK TO 

    RELATIONSHIP STRUGGLES

    (A Guide to the Powerful Role Minerals Play in Regulating Emotions)

    There currently exists a gaping disconnect between the fields of mental health and nutrition, with neither side acknowledging in a mainstream way how one affects the other. This is especially true when it comes to relationships, countless numbers of which have unsuspectingly fallen victim to the ravages of nutritional imbalances...

    THE DARKER SIDE OF SUPPLEMENTING VITAMIN D

    When one comes to understand the effect that excess Vitamin D in supplementation form has on other minerals (as this article explains), we then begin to see its more dangerous side.  The truth is, the recent herd mentality fad of blindly pushing and supplementing Vitamin D pills is putting millions of people (in fact, the vast majority of the population) at high risk for everything from...

    DETOX YOUR BODY & IMPROVE HEALTH WITH INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY

    The use of heat and sweating as a method of healing and wellness has been used around the world for thousands of years. Today, the most commonly recognized form is the sauna.  Here we'll look at Infrared Saunas and how they offer one of the most important investments you can make in your health.

    While traditional saunas rely on high heat to induce sweating, infrared saunas heat the body from the...

    HAIR ANALYSIS (HTMA) vs BLOOD: WHICH TEST IS BETTER FOR UNDERSTANDING MINERAL STATUS?

    Blood offers many essential medical markers, and so of course it most certainly has its purpose for testing.  However, relying on a blood test to determine one's mineral or heavy metal status is, stated quite bluntly, a half-blind approach. A key concept, so simple and yet so vastly overlooked, is that the nature of blood is homeostatic, always working to return itself to a normal range. It does this at the expense of cell and tissue levels...  

    HOW IN-UTERO AND CHILDHOOD ENVIRONMENTS LEAD TO MINERAL IMBALANCE AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS IN ADULTS

    As parents we want the best for our children -­ raising them healthy, self-­aware, confident, feeling worthy, and raised in an environment that instills every possibility for their own future success... Our words, love, encouragement and lessons in life all can help in this endeavor. However, there are at least two deeper undercurrents than run in all of us that can so easily sabotage even the most dedicated efforts of parents. Beliefs, and mineral patterns...

    HOW YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS CONTROLS YOUR HEALTH AND RELATIONSHIPS 

     

    We are all running on ‘programs’ – messages and patterns we picked up early in life that control us, for good or for bad, as adults. Holding on to hidden negative emotions and patterns can affect us in various aspects of life, from repeated disappointments in relationships and career to serious health concerns.  In fact, almost all health concerns can be traced back to some energetic or emotional imbalance. This is why, in order to heal, we need to ...

    SUPPORTIVE TOOLS FOR EMOTIONAL AWARENESS AND HEALING

    When we talk about healing, we must understand that our biology is affected by our physical body, our energetic body, our mental body, and our spiritual body. Much of the healing work offered through Integrative Health Coaching is based on balancing mineral levels which play a primary role in all aspects of physical and mental health.  However, there are cases when, no matter how diligently one supplements with nutrients, the body's mineral pattern doesn't correct itself.  Occasionally, emotional issues from ...

    ADRENAL FATIGUE

    Adrenal conditions are largely ignored in Western medicine, despite a tremendous number of health problems stemming from adrenal insufficiency / adrenal hypo-function and burnout. Stress is very often at the root of such disorders. This article looks at how the 3 stages of stress (developed by Nobel prize nominee Dr. Hans Selye, the "father of stress research" and who coined the term 'stress') lead to increasing stages of adrenal insufficiency / fatigue. Further we look at some of the most common health symptoms (physical and psychological) that can ...
