Over the last fifty years, I have seen a few of the great nutritionists rise and inspire millions of people to perfect their health through juicing.
First to make his mark was Jack LaLane, Max Gerson, then came Jan the juice man, Jay Kordich, and finally the Superjuicer Jason Vale. They all told the same story. Juicing heals the body.
Live, nutritious vegetable and fruit juices are instantly absorbed by the body, detoxing and replacing vitamins and other phytonutrients needed to make the body thrive.
Why can't I just eat food? A great deal of energy is needed to digest whole food and we can't eat enough to supply the mega nutrition needed to repair the body by simply eating. That can only be done through juicing.
Watch this film and you will see what I mean! Eight people with 22 different diseases, go to a beautiful oasis in Portugal and have nothing to eat but juice for 28 days. See what happens!

A woman's production of progesterone begins to wane 5-10 years before menopause making her vulnerable to estrogen dominance.
More estrogen than progesterone means more fat cells and more pounds and weight that is almost impossible to lose.
Extra weight will affect thyroid function and slow you down even more.
Schedule a personal consult by phone or facetime to make changes the body needs to drop this weight and be yourself again.
Mary called and said her primary doctor told her she had been diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Needless to say, she was at a loss for what to do about it.
PCOS signs and symptoms include
All of the treatments her doctor suggested involved risks and they were merely to reduce symptoms.
PCOS is a complicated multi-faceted condition involving several systems which make it difficult for a patient to self treat effectively.
She was told that if she did become pregnant, her chance of miscarriage is 30% to 50%, and there is a potential for eclampsia.
Having a child is something she has dreamed of all her life. And so, before starting her consult with me, I gave her a few key, indisputable changes to make in preparation.
First, switch to a plant based diet. Fresh fruits and vegetables, 80% reduction of animal products.
Second, NO SUGAR, NO DAIRY, NO WHEAT.
Third: Order Myo-Chiro Inositol 500 mg from Amazon and start with one a day.
She begins her journey to health at The Wellness Place next week with the high probability of a successful uncomplicated pregnancy and a baby in her future.
Thanks to WhatsApp, Zoom, Skype, email and texting, access to holistic health care is available to all in most countries.
Clients with chronic health issues not being addressed at home can finally get care and direction that isn't offered or affordable in their country.
Along with a depressed economy come feelings of depression and hopelessness for many chronically ill people confined to home without transport. A smart phone eliminates this obstacle.
Hope and optimism are imperative with any health care plan and are a part of the care I provide. A personal connection to each client, a listening ear, and creating a window to the future for each client is the purpose of The Wellness Place.
A shout out to the people of the UK, Tbilisi, Georgia, Istanbul, Turkey, Munich, Germany and the rest of the world. Chronic health conditions are a universal issue, and finding care and compassion for all is a step forward.
Functional Medicine is a systems approach to health.
The difference between your visit to your primary doctor and a functional medicine professional is the following:
For instance: If you have a headache, your primary will give you a prescription, perhaps the same prescription for headache he gave to the patient before you.
He won't usually address the cause of the headache, except to order an MRI or CT.
Functional medicine principles will show that the cause of your headache will be entirely different from the patient before you.
Once the cause is found, the headache goes away and is usually the result of an imbalance in one of the body's many systems.
Three main reasons for system imbalances are: Wrong food, Deficiencies, and Toxicity. If we take away what the body finds offensive, put back the things it needs, and eliminate toxicity, good health returns.
Tools of functional medicine professionals include: Personalized and regular communication with the client, nutrition, supplements, testing, and lifestyle changes.
Addressing the cause, not suppressing the symptom with a drug is the essential difference. It's a game changer.
Unless paramedics bring you into the ER on a gurney with intolerable gallbladder pain, and the OR has been readied for immediate lifesaving surgical removal, do not give up your gallbladder.
Your gallbladder is a friend you cannot do well without. It stores bile which helps you digest fats during digestion among other functions.
If you feel a nagging ache or pain in the upper right quadrant under the ribs next to the stomach, nausea, headaches, poor digestion, you might have gallstones or sludge, which is why so many people end up losing their gallbladder. Some gallstones are never seen on an ultrasound or CT, but sludge and small ones are there, nevertheless. Some people have symptoms of ill health that can be traced to a gallbladder that shows no symptoms.
To resolve gallbladder problems, the stones should be removed with herbs and a liver/gallbladder flush, not with a scalpel. Gold Coin Grass is so successful with relieving gallbladder pain, it is unavailable on Amazon. Sold out! Try other vendors. The second one to use is Li Dan Pian from Plum Flower on Amazon used for centuries by the Chinese.
At some point you will need to do the Andreas Moritz liver/gallbladder cleanse which I will post at some point.
https://www.amazon.com/Amazing-Liver-Gallbladder-Flush/dp/0976571501 The book is tremendously expensive, so I would recommend you buy the e book from smashwords.com for 12.99. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/44142
If you have nausea and vomiting, fever or chills, or tea colored urine, get it checked out. Get lab work, check your bilirubin, and use common sense to know whether surgery is necessary at that particular point. Usually, gallbladder attacks subside, and you have time to remove them in a nonsurgical way.
If you have some insight into natural health, you may do the cleanse on your own. For anyone else who needs support and guidance as to how to do it, I will email you the specifics and help you.
Gallbladder surgery is the most over used, expensive to the insured, surgery that is done to thousands of people needlessly every year. One in 1,000 people will die, so please give this post some deep and serious thought.
Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes red, itchy, scaly patches, usually on the elbows, knees, trunk and scalp.
The only treatments available are medications providing limited improvement, and risking numerous side effects.
The immune system’s job is to protect you against invading organisms that might make you sick. If it is working well, you feel great. If it doesn’t, you get the flu or something else.
An autoimmune disease such as psoriasis is a disease where a hyperactive immune system attacks normal cells thinking they are foreign invaders.
So what happens to make the body's immune system turn on itself? Looking through the functional medicine lens, we have found that a number of lifestyle factors have a tremendous effect on the immune system and how it reacts.
In simple terms, the immune system must be kept calm, happy, and functioning properly so that it doesn't become confused. We do this by eliminating stress, providing good nutrition, and eliminating toxicity. By making these changes, my clients have said goodbye to psoriasis forever.
Finding the triggers that cause the immune system to become confused and attack itself is the key to conquering and eliminating this disease. That is what we do at The Wellness Place.
