Our choices will determine our future health
and, let not man or government force us to choose in a certain way.
Illness or disease as we have stated, starts with poor choices, we speak of obesity and how it relates to our choices. Your choices will determine Health or Disease.
Our Alternative approach, in contrast to the modern medical pharmaceutical sickness industry approach, is a way of looking at things differently. Our approach is developing ways to incorporate nature and what’s natural to the body for a new healing paradigm. In all of our lives, food has taken on emotional and social implications far beyond adequate nourishment.
Food is often what binds families and relationships together. The traditional weight loss strategy implies a temporary restriction of food intake, not a workable permanent lifestyle change, thus, diets are doomed to fail from the beginning. Our strategy about health, weight and beauty, is science fact, not science fiction. Listen to our Radio programs each Wednesday and determine for yourself.
Food is so important in our lives we bond with people over food. How many relationships and friendships have begun and solidified over dinner? Nearly everything in our lives is set up to revolve around food. Good news is celebrated with food, as is bad news mourned. This emotional attachment to food, no matter if you are an overeater, an anorexic, or perfectly healthy, is something that we cannot break, because it is so much part of our lives. It is not necessarily something we SHOULD break, but better, we should understand! Sugar for an example is a drug. Sugar as pervasive as it is, meets the criteria of other drugs for a substance of abuse and may be addictive to those who binge on it. By affecting the chemistry of the limbic system, the part of the brain that’s associated with emotional control, sugar becomes addictive..
Being overweight is an unhealthy and out of control attachment to food but by finding the balance, having our poison cake and eating it too, so to speak, although a bad metaphor, can result in a significant weight loss without drugs prescribed by your doctor and basically a struggle that seems to always fail.
The key to weight loss therefore is a healthy lifelong way of eating. It could be viewed as eating with your brain rather than your stomach and learn food intolerances. Extreme hunger does not allow you to make those crucial decisions; you cannot think clearly, it is as if you turn into some green monster that devours everything in sight, eating all the wrong things in massive quantities.
Why do most weight loss diets fail?
The traditional weight loss strategy implies a temporary restriction of food intake, not a permanent change in lifestyle, thus it’s doomed to fail from the beginning.
Diets create a rebound effect whereby the person, after initial weight loss, stops losing more and feeling deprived and disappointed, abandons the diet and gains back the lost weight. Furthermore, in most cases, the dieter gains more weight back than what was lost to begin with.
Repeated attempts results in yo-yo dieting, with the person continually losing and gaining weight, slowing and slowing or stopping altogether the metabolism, with each subsequent try. Most people blame their failure on their lack of willpower, but they need not be so hard on themselves.
Implementing the changes in your way of eating is not as difficult as it looks at first. Our weight loss program is not a punishment, nor an unpleasant means to an end, where you can’t wait to lose weight so you can eat your favorite foods again. You will not feel like you’re giving up your favorite, but sometimes unhealthy foods, because you learn to replace them with healthy choices, which incidentally, are most often better tasting and more satisfying. As the days pass, you will start to feel better physically and mentally, without feeling hungry and deprived, because you learn how to feed and nourish the body.

For instance we teach you the correct water to drink to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
ALKALINE WATER consumption should be: Consume 50% of your total weight in ounces of water, for example: A 200 pound man would consume 100 ounces of water and a 100 pound women, 50 ounces of water; and adding to that if diuretics are consumed or there is perspiration.
Water actually helps lubricate the movement of fecal matter through the large intestine. In a person who is chronically dehydrated, the peristaltic action of the large intestine is reduced; thus fecal matter spends a longer amount of time in the body, emitting toxins and poisoning the body.
So many people are chronically dehydrated; it’s no surprise that millions of people suffer from diseases of the large intestine and bowel like Crohn’s Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Likewise, water is important for healthy skin, lubricating it and keeping it soft and supple. Without water, all tissues in the body become crippled at the cellular level; they begin to shrivel and lose their ability to function properly. They are unable to do the basic things that every cell needs to do to survive, which is to take in nutrients and excrete metabolic waste products.
Water Keeps Your Tissue Flexible for Better Performance.
You’ll notice that people who drink a lot of water and do not consume dehydrating beverages such as soda, coffee and sugary drinks tend to have much better skin. They also have healthier large intestines, even though you cannot see that from the outside. Another interesting similarity between the two organs is that they both benefit from nutrition which allows them to operate with a healthy amount of tissue flexibility. Minerals like silica and certain types of nutrients such as collagen can also help in this process. Of course, good protein assimilation is crucial for this, too.
Healthy large intestine tissue is flexible tissue; the same thing is true with skin. Healthy looking skin, when stretched, snaps back into place without showing signs of wear, tear, or stretching. When a person suffers nutritional deficiencies, especially certain minerals and amino acids, they begin to lose the flexibility of the protein fibers in cells throughout their body. This can affect their skin and their large intestine, as well as other organs.
Obesity is an excess of body fat and the scale will not deliver this message, because lean muscle weighs more than fat. Anyone who is 20 percent over the norm for their age, build, and height, is considered obese and to measure this ratio, you must use Body Composition Analysis. Those who are obese are more likely to experience kidney trouble, heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, high blood pressure complications of pregnancy, and psychological problems.
Balancing your hormones best (with our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and changing your nutrition and eating habits, not starving but eating correctly and regularly, so the system always feels contented, is important in balancing the ratio of lean muscle mass to fat in the body and reducing inches. When the body can remain satiated every day, for at least 90 days, the past pleasure sensory memories, for things such as sugar, can be reduced, which were often times the cause of the over eating.
Obese people can sometimes associate happy memories with the process of eating. Food can become increasingly more important but increasingly more unfulfilling. When there is inadequate intake of supplements that contain all the essential nutrients, fat is not easily or adequately burned. You must feed the body correctly and regularly with a healthy diet (again, we suggest these things), to maintain health and metabolism.
Digestion is very important and begins in the mouth, when we chew and swallow. Digestion is completed in the small intestine. The chemical process varies somewhat for different kinds of food. A drug can slow, or reverse the process. The villi in the intestine are hair like membrane lining the interior wall of the intestine that can become covered over with fermentation.
When starches are eaten, the signal is sent to the pancreas to provide alkaline or neutral gastric juices, such as “amylase” at an alkalinity of about pH of 7.1 to 7.2. Conversely when proteins are eaten, the digestive system provides “acid” gastric juices, at a pH of approximately 3 for example. When protein is present, only when consumed before carbohydrates, the signal is sent to the pancreas, to release more “protease enzymes” to process the protein. When these food groups are eaten out of order or together, the gastric juices provided by each, cancel each other out, resulting in poor digestion and a disease state that some in the medical pharmaceutical sickness industry label a disease, which they call “Acid Reflux Disease”; that is not a disease, it is simply poor combinations of food choice.
For example, an acid media is required for digestion of flesh foods and alkaline for carbohydrates. If combining the two, the alkaline can neutralize the acid required for digesting the flesh foods. Therefore carbohydrates or dairy products (hopefully you always chose straight from the cow or goat natural and not homogenized or pasteurized) combining them with protein (steak, poultry, fish or other flesh meals ) would not be a wise choice to consume together.
Timing for consumption of foods is important. Having a salad with a protein for example, by eating the salad first, the hydrochloric acid needed for digesting the protein is blocked. Digestion is better if you eat the salad after the protein, or, while eating the protein, as long as about 25% of the protein was consumed first; and remember digestion begins in the mouth. The oral mucosal send a signal to the hypothalamus to alert the pancreas as to what acid to produce and the body is lazy, if you let it make the amylase enzyme first, by consuming a carbohydrate before your protein, it will not make the protease enzyme and that creates “Acid Reflux Disease”, of course that is not a disease state, it is simply poor combinations of food chosen to be consumed first.
Digestion of fruit results in the release of alkalinity, which neutralizes the acid secretions needed for protein digestion. So it is not wise to consume fruit with protein. If foods like fruit, which are fast digesting, get held up in the digestive system longer than necessary, by being combined with foods that digest more slowly, fermentation takes place. Most of us can recall that gurgling feeling of our stomach after we have consumed certain foods.
We would not want a non-acid, to be consumed in the morning for breakfast, because the body needs acid, to begin the energy process for the day. Motivation and enthusiasm that is necessary for the morning requires acid. Foods like Oatmeal or Quinoa with some blueberries or Whole grain, high fiber (sugar-less) cereals would be a wise choice for the morning meal.
Having coffee in the morning to spike the serotonin is not a wise choice due to the fact that Enthusiasm requires the acid side for energy, just as the day follows the night. For example when alkaline fruit (notice I did not say acid Fruit) is eaten as breakfast, it pushes the body back toward the alkaline pH, inhibiting digestion for future meals, in the place of a more acid swing, required in the natural cycle.

Coffee acts as a temporary tranquilizer to the brain, leading to low energy and prompting the use of more stimulants such as coffee, tea, tobacco or refined carbohydrates to bring needed energy (short lived) to the body for a short cycle that in turn, will leave you with lower energy at the end of the shot cycle.
The simplest rule of food combining is to eat foods, or combinations of foods, that have digested easily from our own experience. It is usually easy to digest foods from the same food group, or from two compatible food groups. Meals with Vegetables for example, should be eaten with protein, having the protein first.
As stated earlier, since the meat, or other flesh, requires the pancreas to manufacture the hardest to manufacture enzyme, it would be best, to consume all, are some of the flesh food, before the vegetables or carbohydrates. Since the pancreas will only manufacturer one enzyme type, at a time. The pancreas will take the path of least resistance and start manufacturing the easiest to produce enzyme, which would be amylases enzyme for the vegetables or other carbohydrates, if they were consumed first.
The way you eat can affect how well you feel, your energy levels, and how well you digest on a daily basis.
Another vital part of our food, which is critical to the weight management program, are a class of nutrients we call our Rejuvenis vitamins; which are absorbed from the small intestine. There are two different types of vitamins, classified by the fluid in which they can be dissolved: “water-soluble” vitamins (all the B vitamins and Alpha Lipoi Acid for example) and “fat-soluble” vitamins (vitamins A, D, and K). To have a successful weight management program we must measure their presence in the body and suggest what replenishment is required to the client and that would be through our testing program called: Hair Forensic Analysis.
The client receives the above education and shown that the lymphatic treatment is also vital for the weight management program.
In order for the Anti-Aging Clinic to assist, in a client’s weight management and body contouring program, the body must first be analyzed utilizing Hair Forensic Analysis. This measurement provides:
1. The ratio of lean body to fat
2. The hydration level (Amount in liters of water in the body.
3. The Basal Metabolic Rate. (Energy burned in a relaxed state)
With this as a comparative we can assist the client in loosing fat and increasing muscle to help decrease inches in the body.
A healthy life depends on the circulation of the lymphatic system. The lymph system is made up of lymph organs such as the spleen, the thymus, the tonsils, lymph nodes and lymph vessels. The lymph is all the fluid between the cells. It comprises 80 percent of our total body fluid, often referred to as the forgotten fluid.
This fluid flows freely between cells carrying away debris and waste when the system is healthy. The lymph nodes work as a filter, making sure only dead waste is transported out of the body including fat. The lymph nodes deactivate and kill living pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and parasites.
Since there is no pump for the lymphatic system, it must rely solely on the good health habits of that person, to function properly. We also offer Lymphatic drainage treatments.
When there is health challenges including mental and physical stress, obesity from poor nutrition, lack of water intake and lack of consistent movement and exercise, the lymph system can get overloaded and become quite sluggish, thereby making our bodies tired, toxic and overweight.
After the lymph system has been worked with multiple treatments over time and a healthy system is present, the fluid flows from the nodes through the lymph vessels into the bloodstream. The blood then carries the lymph waste into the liver where it is taken out of the blood and removed. The dead red blood cells are carried into the spleen for extra iron storage. When the detoxification paths are properly working, illness has a much more difficult way to manifest; If there is a breakdown such as poor digestion, constipation, to mention a few, the body may start to be overtaxed with waste. One way it will visibly manifest itself, is a word you may be familiar with “Cellulite”.
The technique for lymphatic drainage treatments utilizes high tech equipment. The client puts on a body suit made out of material similar to a woman’s stocking that prevents pinching. A double roller head is maneuvered over the body and vacuum rolls a fold of skin into the head that gently stretches the tissue and restarts the flow of lymph.
The treatment feels like a deep massage.
The treatments are weekly and when taken in combination with the supplements, and proper food amounts and combinations, exercise and the body is reduced in size and the client remains feeling good. The program is much better than all of the diet programs you may have been involved with from the past.
