Is Your Home Sick?

Hello fellow Health Seekers:

Did you know that our homes today are more air tight than ever before thus making the indoor air quality more toxic than the out doors. We are bombarded by off gasses from new furniture, new flooring, new paint, Wifi, plastics, PCOC’s, flouride in our water, dry cleaning, scented candles, air fresheners and home cleaning products as Lysol, Javex or Mr.Clean. What is one to do? Become an educated consumer, learn to read labels and ID the good guys from the bad, minimize and eliminate the toxins that you can and use safe alternatives or you can attend my free webinar “Is Your House Sick?” Tuesday, February 21 at 8 PM

To register, please go to:https://zoom.us/webinar/register/f9e25077408075d1d746f627e8486654

Unacceptable Levels

Greetings Fellow Health Seekers:

It has been a long absence from my newsletters. Why? I was working as Executive Chef at a  Retreat and Wellness Centre in Ontario perfecting my gluten, dairy and sugar free menus. ( with the most popular dishes being Living Cuisine). I also spent time  expanding on facilitating my  Detox Programs which presently is my main focus. Nutrition is but a small part of the Detox process.

So many factors come into play that affect ones health. Besides the symptoms that often go missed or misdiagnosed, my focus is on “Detox Is An Inside Job”. This will be an online program I will launch early in the New Year.

It will address how to:

Calm The Mind, Cleanse The Body and Clean Out The Home

I will keep you posted on its progress.

In the meantime, I have been totally immersed in school work. I am enrolled in numerous online courses: Functional Nutrition Program, Hashimotos Indepth Training, Environmental Health Practioners Program,  Heart Mastery as well as a Resilience Mentoring  Coaching Program. Whew! I love it. The more I learn, the more I can share.

Hello fellow Health Seekers:

Thank you so much for coming out to the Health Talk Maxine so graciously hosted.I had great feedback from attendees. It is great to hear  I planted some seeds; food for thought.
I am hosting a Food Prep class running two consecutive Sundays, starting this Sunday. You may attend one or both. Consider bringing a friend and your appetite. Some of the recipes are cooked, and some Living food.
I have also attached some info on the Chi Machine as requested by many of you. Sorry if this is information overload. It is a 6 fold attachment.
Also, you may go to
www.chidvd.com/health4wealth (it is the Class II Medical Device approved as such by Health Canada and the FDA), so it is considered and tax deduction.
To recap:
  •  it alkalizes and oxygenates the body, as shown through Live Blood Analysis
  • 15 minutes on the machine equals 3 mile walk in terms of oxygenation
  • considered internal massage, detoxifies

If you would like specific testimonials for a certain condition, please email me and I will gladly  provide. Any questions, please feel free to email me.

I will be sending my updated Newsletter in the next few days.

June Classes, Vita Biosa and Car Air Conditioning

 

Hello fellow Health Seekers:

 Well, the big news is GMO in many arenas.

The most noteworthy is the world war as threatened by Putin to Obama to get rid of GMOs. China has stopped importing US GMO wheat. There is GMO wheat in Kraft Mac and Cheese (plus the food dyes)…it keeps on escalating!

The next 5-Day Raw Food Detox is August 18-23. I will be expanding on more detox modalities for even better results. More details will follow shortly.

This weekend, June 8th-9th, is the Fourth Raw Fest in Toronto. I am an exhibitor on Sunday only and will be demonstrating a raw food class at noon. I will have assorted crackers for sale and my famous pizza. (This Thursday on www.liquidlunch.com a group of exhibitors from the Raw Fest including myself will be interviewed, so check it out, noon to 2 PM) Hope to see you on the 9th.

 

In this issue:

 1) Air conditioning in Hot Cars

 2) Illegal GMO Wheat in Kraft Mac and Cheese

 3) Mobile Phones-The Smoking Gun of the 21st Century

 4) Natures Original Air-Purifiers

 5) Best probiotic-Vita Biosa

 6) Vertical Farming

7) June Raw Food Class Schedule

 1) Air Conditioning in Hot Cars

 Now this is very interesting! My car’s manual says to roll down the
windows to let out all the hot air before turning on the A/C. WHY?
 
No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder
where this stuff comes from, but here is an example that explains a lot
of the cancer-causing incidents.
 
Many people are in their cars the first thing in the morning, and the
last thing at night, 7 days a week.
 
As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill. Please pass this on
to as many people as possible. Guess, its not too late to make some
changes.
 
Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.
 
Open the windows after you enter your car and then after a couple of
minutes, turn ON the AC.
 
Here’s why: According to research, the car’s dashboard, seats, a/c
ducts, in fact ALL of the plastic objects in your vehicle, emit
Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin. A BIG CARCINOGEN. Take the time to
observe the smell of heated plastic in your car when you open it, and
BEFORE you start it up.
 
In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes
anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure can cause
Leukemia and increases the risk of some cancers. It can also cause
miscarriages in pregnant women.
 
The “acceptable” Benzene level indoors is: 50mg per sq.ft.
 
A car parked indoors, with windows closed, will contain 400-800 mg of
Benzene – 8 times the acceptable level.
 
If parked outdoors in the sun, at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the
Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.
 
People, who get into the car, keeping the windows closed, will
eventually inhale excessive amounts of the BENZENE toxin.
 
Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidneys and liver. What’s worse,
it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.
 
So friends, please open the windows and doors of your car – give it
some time for the interior to air out -(dispel the deadly stuff) –
before you enter the vehicle.

2) Illegal GMO Wheat in Kraft Mac and Cheese

 3) Cell Phones-The Smoking Gun of The 21st Century

 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/10059834/Are-we-ignoring-the-dangers-of-mobile-phones.html

4) Nature’s natural Air-Purifiers (courtesy www.cancerdefeaetd.com)

 Wolverton’s study rated plants on a scale from one to 10, based on criteria such as:

 Ability to remove chemical vapors or indoor air toxins

 Ease of growth and maintenance

 Rate at which water evaporates from the leaves.

 Resistance to insect infestation

 

   The NASA-funded comparison yielded this list of top 10 plants for removing contaminants like benzene, carbon monoxide and formaldehyde from the air:

  1. Lady palm—grows slowly but is one of the easiest palms to cultivate
  2. Bamboo palm—also called a “reed palm” and prefers indirect light
  3. Rubber plant—also known as “ficus robusta” and grows very well indoors
  4. Dracaena (Janet Craig) —these plants grow best in bright, indirect sunlight shining from east to west
  5. Philodendron—one of the heartiest house plants that needs to be misted regularly and planted in soil that’s kept evenly moist
  6. Dwarf date palm—grows best in sunny locations free from drafts; be aware that it grows needle-like spines near the base of the leaf stem that can poke through skin and clothing
  7. Ficus alii—prefers a humid environment with low to medium light; will lose foliage if placed near heating or air conditioning vents; this is a virtual weed in the tropics but up north it’s a fussy house plant that doesn’t like to be moved
  8. Boston fern—grows feathery ferns that prefer bright indirect sunlight
  9. Peace lily—prefers indirect sunlight and high humidity

 

Wolverton’s research showed that when these top performers and other plants were placed in sealed chambers with specific chemicals, the plants went to work removing those chemicals from the chambers!

5) Best Probiotic-Vita Biosa (www.vitabiosa.com,www.biosa.com)

 Vita Biosa is an extract of certified organically grown herbs, which is obtained by fermentation of lactic acid cultures on sugar molasses. The selection of herbs has a beneficial effect on digestion and supplies the body with important antioxidants, which protect our cells against oxidation processes, and keeps them functionally properly. Vita Biosa affects directly the intestinal mucosa and is effective against Chrome’s, food intolerances, blockages, Candida, detoxification.

 

Other Uses and Applications:

 Bath, footbath, compress, pricks, minor injuries and scrapes.

 This product was one of the daily protocols in my recent 5-Day Detox.

 I have taken this product (I also give it to my dogs) for more than 6 months and I love it. I highly recommend you invest in a bottle and experience the results for yourself. I do sell this product, so please email me. It will be up on the web site shortly.

 

 6) Vertical Farming-The farming of the future! (TOWER GARDEN)

 Tower Garden Utube-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CU1-DFYrhMw

No time to plant a garden or living in an apartment. The answer is a Tower Garden. They have 60 of these towers at O’Hares airport supplying all the veggies for the restaurants. You can grow any vegetable except the root vegetables which includes, spring greens, kale, Swiss chard, herbs, cherry and regular tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and eggplant to name some. No bugs, no weeding and minimal space. (the width of a barrel) Bring in the tower in the fall and you can have fresh veggies all year round. I have mine started, will have a garden in 4 weeks. For more information, please visit my colleague’s site. lizdavis.towergarden.com

Raw Cleanse Results and Fashionable Prostrate Removal Surgery

 

Hello Fellow Health Seekers:

 

 

I‘m thrilled to report that my 5-Day Raw Food Detox retreat was an amazing success! Dr Gellman did pre and post assessments measuring body fat and water compositions as well as Vedic testing and Iridology and the results clearly showed vast improvements in only 5 days of juicing and raw food. A host of other detox modalities implemented included: infrared sauna, detox baths, micro clustered healthy Kangen water to name a few. The next 5-Day Raw Food Detox Cleansing Program is scheduled for August; a date will be confirmed shortly. I know this will be completly booked, so if you are at all interested, please email me so I can put you on the priority list. Below is an article Dr Gellman wrote explaining the different tests and their significance and some stats from the participants.

 

 Results from 5 day Detox with Alexi Bracey

 

 I am constantly hearing women at the gym complaining that their weight has gone up. Don’t they realize muscle weighs more than fat!

 

 I wish regular scales would be outlawed. They discourage individuals who are working hard on their health and working out and eating well regularly.

 

I was invited to evaluate the participants pre the detox 5-day program.           Their particular details were checked for:

 

Weight, muscle, fat, Intercellular fluid, extra cellular fluid, over all healthy water.

 

They were evaluated on the last day of the detox program to see the results. They were absolutely amazed to see their weight loss, fat loss and they actually increased in muscle mass!

 

To understand intercellular and extracellular fluid:                                Extracellular fluid measures water retention (more common to women than men) You may be slim but still feel puffed.

 

Intercellular fluid is the healthy fluid. Your intracellular fluid should be 40% (btw, that’s the fluids that are contained by cell membranes, ie, your muscles, adipose tissue, platelets, blood cells, etc). Your extracellular fluid should be 20%. That’s the plasma that everything else floats around in. If your EF level is high, that means you’re retaining fluid, and it might be that your kidney’s aren’t functioning optimally for some reason (could be infection, hormonal, salt, or meds).

 

To protect the confidentially of the participants we are only reporting the final number when all the results for each category are added and averaged out.

 

 

Total body weight for the group was a loss of 4.24 pounds

 

 Body fat went down for the group by 2.2 %

 

 Healthy water went up 2.2 %

 

 Muscle went up 3 pounds per person

 

 Extra cellular fluid improved by 9%

 

Intracellular fluid improved by 16%

 

Lets us look at why?

 

The detox cleanse consisted of 2 days of juicing followed by 3 days of raw foods to reintegrate food back which allowed the body to rid itself of accumulated waste in the small and large intestine. The liver and kidney got a break and cleansed.

 

 All this cleansing further cleansed the lymphatic system.

 

They were removed from their busy lives so allowed the body to relax and go to that great place know as parasympathetic nervous system (Daily use of the Chi Machine helped here). Our digestive system only works when we rest, relax and digest.

 

The particiapnats stayed in a beautiful home in the woods,(very serene) breathed in fresh air, saw the stars at night, and experienced a  healing massage on the outside private deck.  

 

Visually: clear eyes, radiant and glowing complexions, no aches or pains, better sleep and a more relaxed attitude, and most importantly set goals on how to maintain a new and better health lifestyle.(and they are still following the suggested protocol)

I have to comment on Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy. I was going to write a tongue and cheek article “Looking for a MD who will Remove a Man’s Testicles as a Preventative Measure against Cancer” Guess what? There is at least one male who has done this, see the article below. Angelina Jolie has been duped my Big Paharma. If you carry the gene for ovarian or breast cancer, you can implement a Nutritional and Wellness Program (which Angelina failed to mention) to minimize and probably eliminate your chances of contracting cancer. So, Angelina has selected a double mastectomy as a preventative measure eating the same way as before, Do you not think that another form of cancer will find its way into her body. Hello out there!!!

4) What’s So Important About Magnesium?

 

It Enables REgeneration to Exceed DEgeneration

Courtesywww.life-enthusiast.com
(I have used this companies products including the magnesium oil for years. I highly recommend them)


Magnesium is the most under-appreciated mineral your body requires for cellular health. It soothes your nervous system (providing deeper rest). It fires up the repair, rest and digest side of your nervous system, allowing you to sleep well and stay calm, and avoid anxiety, restless legs, muscle cramps, and twitches.

And is essential for the production of amino acids that are critical for virtually every chemical reaction in your body.

Restore vital magnesium and you enable cellular regeneration to exceed degeneration.

Why Supplement Magnesium?

There is a documented epidemic of magnesium deficiency in America, and yet the medical industry is trying to deal with it using drugs instead of effective supplements.

Because the food that is grown on our depleted soils no longer contains enough magnesium to sustain you in a healthy state.

Our soils have been seriously depleted of magnesium, and industrial agriculture practices are making things worse. Many diseases are related to magnesium deficiency.

How do you know there is an epidemic of magnesium deficiency taking place?
Let me list some of the symptoms:

 

  • road rage (instability, quick to anger)
  • restless leg syndrome (twitchy nervous behaviors)
  • high blood pressure
  • arthritis
  • diabetes
  • tooth cavities
  • sleep disorders
  • cramps
  • migraines
  • panic attacks
  • depression

 

Have you seen any of this around you lately?

When you restore vital magnesium to your body, you enable cellular regeneration to exceed degeneration. That means you can reverse the symptoms, even if they are labeled “there is no cure for… ”

Eating Magnesium Supplements Does Not Work

Advertisements about oral magnesium supplements may lead you to believe that regular oral supplementation will fix a magnesium deficiency. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case.

Taking oral magnesium supplements only causes a bowel flush – your body cannot absorb it, nor pass it into your cells.

And food sources have inadequate magnesium because our soils – therefore our foods too – have been seriously depleted of this mineral by industrial farming practices. Our food today contains only about 30% of the minerals it did 100 years ago.  

Best Way to Absorb Magnesium… Through Your Skin!

Effective absorption of magnesium can be done through your skin – your body’s largest organ.

Bathing in Magnesium Crystals is a relaxing, convenient and cost effective way to restore your magnesium.

And a foot bath is just as effective. Both ways are relaxing and rejuvenating.

Prove it to yourself – use Magnesium Bath Crystals for just two weeks, time enough to show how much this simple mineral can improve your life.

Absorb vital magnesium into your cells and experience living well again.

Magnesium Crystals are the concentrated the form of magnesium that is the keystone of cellular regeneration. We call it the “Fountain of Youth”. Only 1/4 cup in your bath every day.

Magnesium with Energized Water…
For Even Better Absorption

If you’d like more concentrated effects, try Magnesium Gel or Magnesium Oil.
They’re delivered through your skin with Energized Water.

Both Magnesium Gel and Magnesium Oil use Energized Water to deliver magnesium through your skin and into your cells – for immediate absorption. An excellent means for your body to absorb critically needed magnesium and essential moisture, for cellular regeneration.

You can reverse aging by stimulating regeneration!

Apply either Magnesium Oil or Magnesium Gel onto any area of concern, as often as desired, to enhance your well-being.

Magnesium Oil is also a magnificent dental aid.
It can whiten your smile by rebuilding the mineral levels in your teeth.

Let me share some comments from users of Magnesium Oil:

“The magnesium is the best thing that has happened to me. I take daily baths and come out feeling like a million dollars. It melts the tension away better than any product I have ever used. I completely submerge myself in the bath allowing my hair to soak in it as well. The color is changing, the slight graying is disappearing. Although not for everyone, while submerged I do some meditation. While under water you block out the world and the magnesium relaxes you and puts you in a perfect state of balance and peace. If you could bottle this state of euphoria you could make a million dollars. Enjoy!!”
~ Victoria

“I have been seeing my cardiologist for 6 years due to long standing heart problems. He has been trying to get my blood pressure and cholesterol down. My blood pressure would often shoot up suddenly and I would get chills and shake all over. After little over two months with Magnesium Oil the erratic blood pressure and the chills have decreased dramatically. Another major change is that the scratchy eyes that tormented me due to deposits of a heart medicine have cleared up.”

“My blood pressure was normal. My cholesterol was remarkable, as the doctor put it. At the end of his examination, he said, “You obviously look much healthier, but you also appear younger.”
~ Lynn

The Magnesium to Calcium Ratio

The ratio between magnesium and calcium is very important, when dealing with the cause and prevention of a number of disorders, including cardiovascular health, heart disease and high blood pressure.

The absorption and metabolism of magnesium depends upon calcium intake, and vice versa. Therefore, the balance between these two minerals is especially important. In view of the overwhelming benefits of magnesium, the traditional ratio of approximately 2 parts calcium to 1 part magnesium needs to be revised. The ideal ratio for most people’s needs is equal amounts of calcium and magnesium. If calcium consumption is high, then magnesium intake also needs to be high.

The Problem for Milk Drinkers…
Since calcium and magnesium depend on each other to be assimilated into your body, they should never be taken imbalanced. Milk has a ratio of about 8 calcium to 1 magnesium, causing a problem for milk drinkers. The high calcium intake can cause a magnesium deficiency, creating ill health.

Magnesium regulates the entrance and utilization of calcium in the cells. Without magnesium, calcium remains in the body unused. This will result in calcium deposits in the joints (aggravating arthritis), gallstones, kidney stones, and in extreme cases calcification of the brain and other body organs. This, in turn, results in loss of memory and loss of ability to reason and eventually the termination of life. All of these conditions have frequently been known to disappear after taking extra magnesium.

Again, magnesium and calcium must be in the correct proportions, otherwise the calcium becomes a pollutant in your body. The rule is “never take calcium without magnesium”.

Calcium depends on magnesium for assimilation, but magnesium does not require calcium in order to function. In fact, in many cases, magnesium taken on its own without any calcium will help you become more energetic, stronger, and give you a multitude of other benefits, all as a result of the magnesium being present to balance the overabundance of calcium.

Effects of Magnesium Deficiency

Eighty percent – or more – of our population is deficient in magnesium, including many who take supplements regularly.

Many debilitating and life threatening diseases are associated with magnesium deficiencies: heart problems, strokes, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, asthma, premenstrual syndrome, attention deficit disorder, anorexia & bulimia, fibromyalgia & chronic fatigue syndrome, depression – and this is not the complete list!

To prevent the risk of short term health problems, your body will draw both calcium and magnesium out of storage from your bones, to maintain the acid-alkaline balance in your bodily fluids. To restore your bones, you must alkalize your pH and provide an abundant supply of magnesium – in an effective form… like our Magnesium Bath Crystals.
