Get the Weight Off Forever

Figure Out Why You Can’t Lose Weight

Let’s get the weight off forever:  Talking about how you can figure out why you can’t lose weight. You will learn all about the leptin/insulin connection.  Last week we talked about food addictions and how food based products lead us to becoming addicted in the first place.  If you missed that recording – click here to listen.    You’ll need that info so you can move forward and win!

Why Isn’t Your Body Cooperating?

HELP ScaleNext week we will dive into finding out why your body isn’t cooperating even when you eat well and exercise and are no longer addicted.  We meet live on Wednesday evening for an hour starting at 8pm Eastern.

Please note, there is no cost to our members to join. We provide this service in an effort to help to change the face of medicine.  Our system is broken and we want to be part of the solution, not the problem.  Want to join us live? Want to see what else we will be talking about and listen to past recordings? Click here.

Let’s Make Things Happen

Make Things Happen BlackboardInsanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  Let’s stop the insanity of bad health and get back to basics.  Lose the weight that creeps back into your life like clockwork. Lose the toxins that we are exposed to daily. Lower cholesterol, blood pressure and balance hormones. Repair your thyroid and adrenal glands.  Learn what you can do to make permanent changes in your life and why those changes will work when others fail.

Have a question?  Get it ready.  This is an interactive meeting  that is free to all with a goal to educate and inform.  We are turning a corner in healthcare today. Coach D, Dr. Edward W. Pearson and the team at the New Medicine Foundation are leading the way to great health and wellness, getting to the root of illness and healing the body instead of synthetically medicating symptoms away.

Understanding Celiac Disease and Wheat – Gluten Sensitivity

Understanding Celiac Disease and
Wheat – Gluten Sensitivity!


There is a lot of info out there today about wheat and gluten sensitivities.  But do you know the latest stats say that most people don’t know they are gluten and/or wheat sensitive let alone that they may have celiac’s disease, either the full blown version or the “lite” version?

Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate a protein called gluten which is found in wheat, rye, barley (malt) and possibly oats. When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Specifically, tiny fingerlike protrusions, called villi, on the lining of the small intestine are lost. Nutrients from food are absorbed into the bloodstream through these villi. Without villi, a person becomes malnourished – – regardless of the quantity of food eaten.

Because the body’s own immune system causes the damage, celiac disease is considered an autoimmune disorder. However, it is also classified as a disease of malabsorbtion because nutrients are not absorbed. Celiac Disease is also known as celiac sprue, nontropical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy.

All of this can be very confusing if you are not on top of all the latest research.  Then you need to decipher who’s data is real and legitimate (without bias) vs who’s data is slighted because of conflicts of interest!  Listen to find out some facts about celiac’s disease and wheat and gluten sensitivities. Listen as others share their own experience with Coach D as she dives into this informative and possibly life-changing topic.

Food is our biggest deterrent to great health and wellness.  Stop the yo yo dieting once and for all!  Learn about wheat, gluten and celiac disease!

I might add that when it comes to food, eat food in its purest form.  Find recipes that combine only wholefood ingredients. Find substances that are natural thickeners like Kuzu Root Starch or Agar Agar Sea Vegetable Flakes.  Stay away from corn starch and flour for thickening.  Experiment with your crock pot.  Cut up sweet potatoes in fry fashion and mix them in a bag of egg whites and salt.  Then baken them on a cookie sheet that is covered with a little coconut oil.  Bake at 400 degrees until desired crispness is obtained.  Find healthy, in-season, fruits and eat them for dessert.  Baked apples are wonderful and there are recipes galore.  AND baking apples (cored) and sprinkling them with cinnamon leaves a wonderful smell throughout your home.  Natures room freshener for me!  Listen in for more information and shared conversation from participants…..

PROBIOTICS – PACK A LOT OF PUNCH IN A LITTLE CAPSULE

PROBIOTICS

PACK A LOT OF PUNCH
IN A LITTLE CAPSULE

 

Probiotics should be taken daily for proper immunity but when you feel symptoms coming on, then of course I feel like you should at least double up on the dose.  Suzy Cohen the 24 hour pharmacist says “I am not afraid of taking probiotics throughout the day, I’m more afraid of feeling miserable and sick.” High-quality probiotics will improve the quality and count of your healthy disease-fighting bacteria. Some strains will even induce IL-10-producing regulatory T cells which is a scientific way of saying they reduce inflammation, and can help immune function as well as inflammatory disorders of the gut like painful Crohn’s.
