I was delighted to have this message on my phone after just ONE session of TRE® with this person. They were under a great deal of stress and uncertainty regarding finances, housing, and finding a job.  

This is the transcript of the voice mail:

“Hi this is _____,

I just wanted to let you know that I went to kundalini practice with gong meditation after I came to see you. I felt amazing! and I did a LOT of twitching in savasana. And then I woke up yesterday and I felt so calm and balanced and back in my body. Just centered. It was really great and felt amazing.

I had a pretty busy day and in the midst of it I took a nap; and boy I was just twitching like crazy! But one of the big things I noticed (especially during the kundalini practice) after I’d had those diaphragmatic releases (during TRE®), was my ability to breath more deeply. Like a lot more deeply.

And the last few days I have just felt so good! Relaxed, happy, in my best space.  I got the job that I went to interview for!

Everything has just felt really like “ahhhhh.”  Like that constriction has really released. It was amazing! That was an amazing experience! 

It was so subtle. I felt really loved, and supported, and cared about, which was nice. And on top of it it was that extra bit of , “wow, something really actually shifted!  

I am just in an immense amount of gratitude at this moment. I just really want you to know that that was a real genuine healing experience for me, and it has dramatically improved my quality of life.  I just wanted to tell you thank you.  I look forward to see you again. Thank you!”

TRE® is such a gift to offer my patients. It can be a key to unlocking and fully accessing your own energy, clarity, and emotional resiliency.

Everyone needs strategies for dealing with stress! (I’ll be glad when this election season is over!) TRE® is one of the best ways I know to release stress from the body and restore equilibrium to the nervous system.

Benefits can include:

  • Reduced musculoskeletal pain
  • Better Sleep
  • Feeling more “grounded”
  • Less social anxiety
  • Getting hired for your dream job because you were confident, comfortable, and grounded during your interview!

Learn TRE® from me in my office or come to the Oregon Coast Oct 21,22,23 for Yes, This! Wellness Retreat. 

 

If you would like to find your own calm, relaxed, happy place, come learn TRE® with me at the Yes, This! Wellness Retreat October 21,22,23 in Nehalem Oregon.

Would you like to clear away the sluggish fog of too much “summer fun”? The grey bloat of too many happy hours? Looking to lighten the load a little? Clean out the junk drawer? Are you experiencing any symptoms like:

  • weight gain
  • fatigue
  • headaches
  • joint pain
  • depression, irritability, anxiety, mood swings
  • insomnia
  • bad breath
  • itchy skin
  • poor focus or memory
  • sinus congestion, allergies
  • constipation, gas, bloating

These can all be related to inefficient elimination of toxins!

We live in an ever increasing toxic environment.  Causes of impaired detoxification can include:

  • Overwhelming load (exogenous-from outside the body, and endogenous-toxins generated by dysbiosis and leaky gut)
  • Impaired excretion (liver, bowel, kidney, lymph)
  • Inefficient fuels (improper macronutrient balance)
  • Deficiencies in micronutrients (antioxidants, cofactors for detox pathways)

You are in luck! Fall Detox Group Starts September 25!

Here’s the what’s and the how’s: 21 days of 2 shakes a day with some liver cleansing herbs and digestive enzymes. Plenty of protein(in the shakes- it’s non GMO pea protein) to support proper phase one and phase two detox. Modified, individualized elimination diet. Learn how to properly support your organs of elimination to avoid “detox symptoms.” People do very well on this program and generally feel energetic and clear headed. There will be 3 live calls (recorded also) for education and support. Those will be Sunday September 25, October 2, and October 9 at 10 am PST. There will also be a private facebook group for members to share ideas, recipes, and ask questions.

The 21 day detox costs only $237. When consider the cost remember that you will be replacing 42 meals with the shakes, so think of all the money you will save on groceries!

Here’s a recorded call I did last fall explaining a bit about why seasonal detox is a wonderful way to support our health.

 

What others have said about the program:
 “We went to a gathering yesterday that represented the most outstanding baked goods we can eat loads of- chocolate shortbread cookies, sour cream coffeecake, arrays of cookies, ad nauseam. Honestly, after two weeks of choosing consciously what goes in the pie-hole, it wasn’t a big deal at all. I NEVER thought I’d feel that way. “I am weak; I can’t say no; diet is out of my control.” These are myths that it’s miraculous to discover.” CM

I am very excited to announce that I am now certified to teach TRE®. If you have been around me at all this year you have probably already heard me talk about it. My training began in the fall of 2015 with Jessica Schaffer.  At the core of most chronic health concerns is a nervous system struggling to deal with stress. Our bodies are well designed to respond to an acute stress, but in our modern world chronic stress is really taking it’s toll on our health. TRE® addresses chronic tension (caused by stress)  by “shaking it off” literally! TRE® is a set of exercises designed to allow the body to tremor and shake, something that is a natural physiological release after threat or trauma. Tremoring this way in a safe environment allows the body and nervous system to let go of stored “fight or flight” tension, restoring calm and relaxation to the body. Benefits of TRE® include improved sleep, more emotional resiliency, feeling grounded, more flexibility and less pain in the body, decrease in anxiety and hypervigilance, more social connection, relaxation…and more! I believe a regular TRE practice really address the underlying effect that stress plays in our health. TRE® works well with other treatment modalities, and once you learn the basic exercises you can practice at home. The exercises are easy to learn, but it is best to work with a certified provider who can help support you as you learn self regulation. Learn more about TRE® here.  Make an appointment with me to learn TRE®, so you can bring more calm and less stress and tension to your life!

Turmeric Ginger Switchel

Turmeric Ginger Switchel

 

Excited to share my new favorite summer drink! Why Turmeric? In botanical medicine it goes by it’s Latin name, Curcuma Longa. It is a member of the ginger family and is a rhizome that looks like ginger, but is bright orange/yellow. The orange color is the carotenoid called ‘curcumin’ which is responsible for the amazing health benefits including high antioxidant power. Turmeric is wonderful for soothing and quenching all sorts of inflammation. We now understand that inflammation is at the root of many common chronic illnesses. It has anti-cancer as well as brain protective benefits. With dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases on the rise, I am definitely looking for prevention strategies, especially ones that taste so good! If you are looking for a way to add delicious supercharged nutrition to your life, you can’t go wrong with Turmeric!

Fresh Turmeric

Fresh Turmeric

It is also slightly bitter, and a warming, stimulating herb which helps with bile production, and can support healthy cholesterol levels. We know it is absorbed best when in the presence of black pepper. In this recipe I use doTERRA black pepper essential oil which is really mild and adds a great balance to the flavor.

IMG_2319If you want to purchase black pepper oil you can do that here. 

 

IMG_2311Ginger is a natural companion to turmeric. Very anti-inflammatory itself, it also helps with digestion, has anticancer benefits too. Ginger has been shown to reduce migraine pain and menstrual cramps. This is powerful kitchen medicine! A switchel is an old fashioned beverage using apple cider vinegar with some sort of sweetener- commonly honey, maple syrup, or molasses. I will be experimenting with using a xylitol simple syrup to reduce the glycemic impact of the switchel. However, the amount of honey used in this recipe is relatively small, and the switchel is diluted with still or sparkling water, so the sugar content is much lower than most commercially available sodas and drinks.

Here is the recipe:

Equal parts fresh turmeric and ginger juice. I juiced them in my champion juicer, however if you do not have a juicer you can grate them on a fine, microplane grater, and then add the freshly grated roots to the apple cider vinegar mixture. When you serve it you will just want to strain it first. So you can scale this recipe as you want, but for this example let’s say we have 1/4 cup combined turmeric and ginger juices. fresh turmeric and ginger juice

To this you will add 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon, lime or a combo of juice.

lemons

Then add 3/4 cup Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Then stir in your sweetener. I used honey in mine and I used 1/2 cup. You may like it more or less sweet and you can adjust to your taste. honey

4 drops black pepper essential oil

Stir all together. This makes the base of your switchel drink. It is very strong by itself. To serve, add 2-3 Tablespoons to a 12 oz glass filled with ice and either still or sparkling water. It is also delicious added to summer cocktails! Be aware that the Turmeric can stain anything it comes in contact with!

Enjoy!

Ginger, Turmeric, Cinnamon

More and more research is supporting the idea that inflammation is at the heart of most chronic diseases.

A wonderful friend of mine taught me this delicious recipe for an anti-inflammatory tea.  She experienced significant reduction in her arthritis pain after regular consumption.  I decided I had to try it myself!  Not only is it extremely good for you, it is delicious!

Recipe?  In a saucepan full of water throw a few slices of fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, and cinnamon sticks.  Simmer for 20 min or longer.  Add  a small bit of honey and the juice of one lemon.   Drink hot or cold!  It is also easily made with dried, ground herbs as well.  Try 1 quart of water with 1/2 tsp of each herb.

Curcumin, the potent anti-oxidant in Turmeric has been found to be as effective an anti inflammatory as prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in a trial with rheumatoid arthritis patients.  It is an effective free radical scavenger, and holds promise in prevention of cancer and alzheimer’s disease.  In nutrition, it seems that the deeper the color of the food the higher the nutritional value.  So when you are shopping, look for deep green greens like kale, dark berries, and bright yellow pigments like turmeric for nutrient dense power.

Ginger has been used traditionally to quell arthritis pain and has been shown effective in trials comparing it to NSAIDS.  Ginger is also a warming, digestive stimulant.

Cinnamon is rapidly earning its reputation as a blood sugar and lipid regulator for folks who struggle with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.  Besides this, cinnamon is also anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, warming and delicious!

Do you need any more encouragement to go put on a pot of water for a batch of turmeric, ginger, cinnamon tea?

Please go to mobius microfarms to learn more about why to eat microgreens and how to get them!

We had a bumper crop of collard greens this year in the garden. Even our dog was eating them!

Collards are super nutritious- high in vitamin A, vitamin K, and Folate. We use them as wraps for bread-less sandwiches (lightly steam them after removing the stem), stir fried with bacon, julienned in salads or as a noodle replacement. We eat a lot of soups in the winter time and I’m happy to have a supply of greens in the freezer. Pictured is julienned collards in green papaya salad.
