Adverse Childhood Experiences- ACE Study
The stress of childhood trauma releases hormones that can physically and mentally change a child’s developing brain. Children with overwhelming stress live much of their life in fight or flight mode, which can alter and stress their mental and emotional development. Being in this mode also puts an individual in sympathetic dominance, which stresses their endocrine glands and immune function. Most children that have endured and experienced trauma see the world as a place of constant danger. If not dealt with and properly healed from these traumas, children take these fears and anxieties into their adulthood.
Dirty Dozen / Clean Fifteen Foods
What is the dirty dozen and clean fifteen food list? This is a list put out every year by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). EWG performs a series of tests required by the US Department of Agriculture. The results are that nearly 70% of 48 types of conventionally grown produce are polluted with pesticide residues.
Juicing - The many benefits
Fresh juices break down diseased tissues in the body and clean out old debris from cells and tissues that are lacking oxygen and vitality. It then restores new cells to a vibrant and oxygen rich state. Fresh juice also assists in proper drainage of the cleansing organs, including the liver, colon, and kidneys. It also helps in cleansing the bloodstream, lymph, and skin.
You cannot live one day without your liver functioning. The liver is the most regenerative and resilient organ in the body. Most livers will regenerate and regrow after a diseased portion is removed.

Bone broth is made from slow cooked bones from healthy, pasture fed animals, vegetables, and filtered water. It is slow cooked at a low temperature in a crock pot or roast pan in the oven for 12-24 hours. The slow cooking process releases the minerals and nutrients from the bones and vegetables into the water or broth.
Benefits of Ghee
Ghee is one of my favorite fats to use for cooking, sautéing, and roasting! It definitely enhances the flavors of whatever you’re cooking with, such as meat, vegetables, or starches. It gives food a rich, delicious, nutty, and mouthwatering taste.
Castor Oil Packs
Castor Oil has a long and very interesting history of being used as a healing agent for thousands of years. Castor oil, also known as Palma Christi, because its leaves resemble the hands of Christ, has quite an impressive and extensive background worldwide.
I can’t tell you how many times over the years that I have sat across from a client and strongly encouraged them that doing a coffee enema would powerfully benefit their health. The looks that I have received and comments they give me are usually some of embarrassment, humor, or plain old disgust.
