Becoming a parent is one of the most exhilarating joys and one of the happiest moments of life! To touch, hold, and breathe in the delicate scent of a little baby of your own creation… no words can truly capture the rapture one feels in every cell of ones body when that day arrives!

Unfortunately today, more and more couples are having difficulty getting pregnant. A baby from their divine Love is something many couples have shared with me is what they desire more than anything. But many couples are not aware that achieving a natural pregnancy is possible without using harmful fertility drugs.

How to get pregnant, and how to stay pregnant, is a specialty of mine I’ve helped couples with, with a 100% success rate, as of this very moment, for the past close to 22 years I’ve been in practice.

A naturopathic fertility treatment for women and men is what I offer in my new book as the best fertility treatment a couple should consider to have the tiny, precious miracle they so wish for. And yet, this book is also for All those who desire to obtain a healthy reproductive system and a balanced body. Allow me to help you on this loving journey. ~

Psoriasis. Are You Inflamed?


Psoriasis. A skin disorder that affects close to 7 million people in the US. Immune system imbalances are involved, yet it is not contagious. Psoriasis is characterized by an abnormal growth of skin cells. While psoriatic skin cells take an abnormal 3-6 days to mature, normal skin cells mature in a month. It may seem like a simple skin disorder, but did you know over 45o people die each year from certain complications due to severe psoriasis? Symptoms include:

  • Arthritic joint pain and skin
    joint inflammation
  • a significant ‘dip’ or pitting of the nails
  • inflammation, scaling and redness of skin usually on hands, feet, scalp, knees, behind knees, inside and outside of elbows
  • intense skin peeling, sometimes
    painful

Some severe cases have shown large amounts of skin loss which then make the person susceptible to infections that can become serious.

Excellent results are seen with a holistic approach including the following natural therapies that help correct psoriasis by focusing on strengthening the immune system, strengthening the nervous system to cope with stresses better, reducing stress, and reducing discomfort with anti-inflammatories:

Healthy skin is attainable as so many have shown when using a natural holistic approach. And this is highly encouraged and stated in a report in The Lancet. The immune system needs time for strengthening. Use the above supplements for 3-6 months to ultimately help the body heal from this disorder. Healthy skin to All! Be Well!

Are You Retaining Water? What To Do About Edema…

edema-2

Water retention, edema, bloating.  Uncomfortable health challenges that much too many people suffer with.  But what exactly constitutes water retention?  When one has too much fluid that has accumulated in body cavities and tissues, we must understand this is the body’s cry for help from a problem of imbalances and not enough water.  If we do not feed the body enough water, it tries to compensate by retaining fluid causing these levels to go out of balance.

What are some other health issues related to water retention/edema? Liver problems, kidney problems, circulation, blood pressure, pre-menstrual issues, and pregnancy problems.  All these are associated.

How do you know if your symptoms are caused from retaining water?  If you have and feel swollen ankles, feet and hands, and your belly feels as if it is bulging (also caused from wearing tight clothing) then you could be retaining water. If you see a significant shift in the way your clothing fits one day, then very tight and fitted the next, head feels heavy and achy, then your bloating is probably hormone induced also related to menopausal changes or PMS (most definitely if suffering from estrogen dominance).  Constipation, lack of exercise, allergy symptoms, and even weather and climate changes can have an impact on water retention.

So what are the causes of holding on to so much fluid?  Serious dieting and weight control can cause one to remove foods from the diet that provided the body with natural water.  Diet imbalances are direct causes if they are ones that include red meat, too much salty food, MSG, not enough B complex vitamins, potassium, and most definitely water retention will occur is  you have a diet with not enough protein.  You could also be suffering with dehydration.  Pharmaceutical diuretics, birth control pills, alcohol, and steroidal drugs all cause dehydration.

If you are suffering with chronic edema, consider circulatory problems (such as spider veins and varicose veins), kidney, bladder and liver challenges.  Natural herbal therapies are known to balance metabolism and body chemistry to correct the challenge rather than just helping the body to release fluids.

If your water retention stems from Kidney/Bladder challenges then consider there is an emotion root cause.  Kidney issues also stem from harboring specific negative emotions. The two main emotions that affect the Kidneys are:

  • Fear (TCM – Traditional Chinese Medicine)
  • Unresolved Forgiveness (Holistic Medicine)

Understand please, Family and Friends, that holding on to and harboring these emotions of Fear and Unresolved Forgiveness is to surely weaken the kidneys and eventually one will begin to experience physical signs of kidney problems.  If you know you are holding on to these very emotions, the good news is, strengthening and balancing the kidneys helps you in turn feel strong enough to let go of these emotions.

12 Physical signs of Kidney problems:

  • lines under the eyes
  • purple, deep, dark circles under the eyes
  • puffy eyes
  • fluid retention
  • constant lower back pain
  • frequent, painful urination
  • weak bones (TCM)
  • fatigue specifically between 3pm and 7pm
  • fevers, chills, trembling
  • high blood pressure
  • a dull constant ache in the lower back may indicate kidney stones
  • ear problems, hearing loss, chronic ear infections (in adults and children)

A diet that is mainly vegetarian, low in starch and high in plant based-protein is best to prevent water retention. Dark green vegetables and fruits like lemons, limes, and grapefruits are foods that alkaline the body and help as well.

Eliminate the following: fried foods, salty and sugary foods, caffeine foods, and carbonated beverages which impede the kidney from filtering waste. Avoid dairy foods, starches, fats and heavy grains since these cause clogging and mucous.

Use the following combined for flushing support, to normalize and balance the whole body and the most vital organs from a Chinese medicine perspective, and increase kidney activity:

 

Enlarged Prostate, Vasectomy, And Prostate Cancer

prostate-enlargement

The American Cancer Society estimates the following latest statistics about prostate cancer  in the United States for 2016:

  • About 180,890 new cases of prostate cancer
  • About 26,120 deaths from prostate cancer

And did you know that other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men?  It is estimated 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer during his lifetime…

prostate-bph

Prostate problems are affecting men at younger and younger ages.  Unfortunately, today these disorders are now being suffered by men beginning after about age 35.  And some of the easiest ways to prevent prostate problems are by exercising regularly and avoiding chemical antihistamines which impair prostate function and impair the liver with overuse.

So, Gentlemen, if these disorders begin at such a young age, how old do you think you will be by the time 50% of you have an enlarged prostate? Between ages 51 and 60.  And by age 80, well over 90% will have an enlarged prostate. Of course, once again, this can be prevented.

What are the main causes of prostate enlargement?

  1. A diet with too little fiber
  2. A high fat diet
  3. Too much caffeine
  4. Too much alcohol
  5. Imbalanced hormones such as altered testosterone levels and elevated estrogen levels due to prostaglandin and essential fatty acid depletion
  6. Lack of exercise
  7. An overloaded and exhausted lymphatic system, usually due to overuse of medications

When the prostate is inflamed, enlarged, sexual intercourse is not recommended since it will irritate the prostate further and delay recovery.  Delay sexual intercourse until the inflammation is alleviated.

vasectomy

And what if you are thinking about, or have had a Vasectomy?  Studies have shown that a man must think through his decision before having a vasectomy. There is a larger risk of cancer of the prostate in vasectomized men. Why, do you ask? Sperm builds up due to the sealed off vas deferens. With this build up, the body reabsorbs the sperm and the body is prone to having an autoimmune response to its own tissue. Since the testicles are known as a very powerful energy focal point in a man’s life force, when something interferes with the free flowing movement of sperm, this means energy is blocked and not flowing as it should either. Eventually this results in degeneration. Stagnation, if you will.

Think twice before performing this procedure.  You will be preventing disease and a number of other undesirable side effects, and, your body will love you for it and will perform better sexually.

The liver is also affected from a vasectomy by causing blockage that leads to built up anger and irritability, the emotion related to an ill liver, and also leads to an inflamed prostate, abdominal pain, and sciatica or leg cramps.

Natural herbal therapy solutions?

Chinese herbs are the best at balancing us emotionally and physically.  Western herbs just don’t do it the same.  That is way, because internal energy balance is a necessary focus when helping the body overcome these types of male reproductive system challenges, I recommend Chinese herbs, whether negative (yin) formulas or positive (yang) formulas.

The liver is the filter of hormones.  And since the liver regenerates every 90 days, and hormone levels are crucial to prostate health, use the following combination to prevent and help the body heal from prostate inflammation, balance hormones, and elevate mood:

CHINESE POSITIVE PACK

MEN’S FORMULA W/ LYCOPENE

EQUOLIBRIUM

If you have had a vasectomy, have a presence of abnormal cells, even benign cells, or prostate cancer is present, negative Yin Chinese herbs are best to help the body overcome these challenges with also, great success.  I recommend the following combination therapy program for minimum 3-6 months to help the body fight abnormal cells:

CHINESE NEGATIVE PACK TCM

MEN’S FORMULA W/ LYCOPENE

EQUOLIBRIUM

Return to an active vibrant sex life with vitality, vigor and health…

Be well and be healthy, Gentlemen!

 

 

Eczema. Are You Aggravated?

eczema2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many adults and children today are suffering with skin disorders… close to 32 million Americans.  And most feel despair and pain with no hope of relief.  But some people have figured out a way to overcome eczema naturally and heal from this distressing skin problem.

Eczema. This skin disorder is characterized by aggravated, inflamed, dry, thick, and red skin patches usually found on wrists, arms, elbows, ankles, neck, and/or cheeks. Very different from psoriasis, this condition is related to food allergies aggravated by eggs, wheat, milk and soy foods, poor digestion caused by low hydrochloric acid in the stomach, low levels of essential fatty acids due to people who are afflicted having trouble converting essential fatty acid nutrients to a form that the body can use, and leaky gut syndrome.  Eczema is associated closely with asthma, candida yeast infection, and diabetes, and a flare-up can be triggered by emotional stress and depression.
Eczema signs include:

  • numbness, tingling and discomfort of skin
  • angry red patches of skin mostly on the wrists, ankles and cheeks
  • blisters that ooze and crust over
  • weeping skin
  • itchy skin
  • bumps on skin
  • scaling on skin
  • lumpy, thick  skin

Eczema is an internal problem caused by internal imbalances.  Creams and lotions alone will never help the body heal from this disorder.  What has shown success in helping the body heal are natural therapies used to bring back balance.  Use the following to deal with stress, control allergic reactions, heal skin, and to feed the body essential fatty acids for smooth skin:

Achieve healthy skin, feed the body what it is missing and watch the body heal itself.
