Inside Out

Wellness eye-openers


There are proven remedies, cutting-edge technologies and simple old-fashioned common sense therapies.  And they all work to make us recover from illnesses.

It’s the same big bowl of toxic soup we are eating from.  And living in the toxicity of the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the fabrics that clothe us, the household cleaning products we use, the cosmetics and hair coloring we consume, and more.

Women beware:  Plastics and pesticides, according to Dr. Candice Lane in “Breakthroughs” by Suzanne Sommers, can actually increase the estrogen dominance which can predispose women to cancer.

Obviously, this chemical assault we are all confronted with will not go away.  So, what do we do to fight it?  There are some measures we can all adopt now.

Urgent measures


If you don’t eat organic food, then wash the poisons off.  In a big basin of tap water, add 3 tbsp sea salt, 3 tbsp natural vinegar, and 3 tbsp baking soda.  Wash all foods, vegetables, fruits, fish, chicken, etc. in this mixture for 15 minutes.  Or, get an ozonator and place the little tube contraption and disc into the plain bowl of water with your food for 15 minutes. An affordable ozonator is available at Biosafe (tel.  4165618).

Avoid cigarette-smoke-filled places at all cost.  Even if it is a popular meeting place, don’t go.  The price you will pay in the long run will be your health.  If people pull out a cigarette in front of you, tell them it is offensive to you.

Add more indoor plants to your office.  They help filter the air.  (Except for bromeliads, because they trap water, thus inviting mosquitoes and dengue.)

Try to attach a water filter to your faucets.  Some health stores carry them. This is to screen out fluoride and chlorine.

Colonic therapy and irrigation cleanses 5 feet of the colon as compared to plain enemas that clean up only eight to 12 inches.  This is an effective way to cleanse accumulated waste products.  Do this monthly, if possible.

Boost your immune system—load up on antioxidants like multi-mineral/vitamin supplements. If you want to go more aggressive, see your doctor and ask about vitamin C infusions through IV-drip.  Remember that vitamin C is a free-radical killer.

Help the lymphatic system—have a lymphatic massage monthly. There is more lymph fluid in the body than blood.  It’s job as toxic garbage collector is to cleanse the body.

The lymph system is a network of nodes and vessels.  It is a highway that connects every cell and every organ in the body.

Avoid a congestion of the lymph.  If there is an obstruction, soreness and swelling lumps will appear, most noticeably in the armpits, groin, neck and intestines.

The latest and most effective of technologies providing lymphatic relief is a cellular electrical bio-feedback machine called Ondamed that sends pulsating micro-currents using low-level magnetic energy to areas of pain.

Dry skin brushing stimulates the skin’s ability to oxygenate tissues, remove toxins and remove cellulite.  Do this before you take your shower.

A three-minute session of light and brisk skin brushing is equivalent to 20 minutes of exercise!

An infrared sauna with heat levels between 140°F and 160°F is one of the most effective ways to remove fat-stored toxins.

Heat stress via the sauna removes calcium deposits from blood vessels and breaks down scar tissue from the walls of vessels.

So, if you find a lump on your body, don’t panic. It could be a calcium deposit.  At any rate, as in all medical/health cases, consult your doctor.

Cell power


The human body produces 10 million cells every second.  How awesome is that?!  But here’s the catch.  Healthy cells reproduce healthy cells.  Sick cells reproduce sick cells.

The internal warning system is shouting out loud when you have a cold or fever.  A good cell defense is essential fatty acids from fish oils (omega 3, 6 and 9). It has cell membrane building benefits and protects cells.

Eat nutritious food now.  It’s never too late to train yourself to eat more fruits and vegetables.

And if you are on a diet, always remember:  Chemicals contained in the food you eat make you fat.
