Nutritional Highlight:

21 Day Purification Program
Are you feeling tired, sluggish, overweight and in need of a change of eating habits?  A great way to start the New Year is to join the thousands of people across the country who have experienced renewed energy, weight loss, better sleep and reduction of many "toxicity"symptoms through the Standard Process 21-Day Purification Program. This is not a "fad" diet or a dangerous cleanse.  It is an eating plan and whole food supplements designed to support your body's natural ability to detox and to feed your body for improved funtion.  Contact our office at 214-415-0760 for more information.

Living Life on Purpose (and in Balance) in 2009!
What does this "New Years Resolution" message have to do with your health?  A great deal, actually.
Stress is a key underlying cause of disease.  We need to expand our view of stress beyond things like traffic, the economy and our job to really get the full picture.  Poor nutrition and toxicity are common sources of stress on our body.  Living beneath our vision of who we want to be is a psychosocial stress.  Relationships that are not where we want them to be is a great stress in our lives.  Even the weather can be a stressor!
A great task in life is determining which of these we can influence directly and which ones we cannot.  We can certainly do much to influence our future.  It is a
studied fact that people who set goals and tell others about them regularly  accomplish more and are often happier people.  I think it is important to note that if your goals are only about financial success and accomplishments then you might not end up in the happier group.
However, we all know that there are some stressors we cannot control.  These are the things that will undermine all the good nutrition and exercise.  These are the things that you think about from 2:00-4:00 a.m.  Another perspective on these psychosocial stressors is to label them FEAR.  Fear of loss, rejection, failure and many others.  Fear is the opposite of faith.  Both cannot operate at the same time... one always wins.  Physiologically, your brain is not even wired to operate in a state of fear or instinctive reaction and a state of logic, health and rebuilding at the same time.
The implications of this has driven me personally to spend a great deal of time understanding what these underlying stressors are and how to find release from fear.  In the future, I will give an overview of things such as emotional release techniques, healing prayer and pre-natal re-imprinting.  I welcome anyone who wants to know more before that time to give me a call.  I will gladly share what I have learned and how it has helped.     
Freedom from fear in 2009... Have a great New Year!
Nutritional Solutions
Believe it or not, nutrition has a great deal to do with your ability to live life on purpose.  I am not talking about the "latest, greatest, mega supplement."  In fact, it is generally a great rule of thumb to beware of any food or supplement product that has amazing advertising.   
Simply supplementing with a whole food nutritional product such as Catalyn from Standard Process can often provide the catalyst that you need to begin rebuilding.  Tuna Oil, high in omega-3 fatty acids are great for brain function.  If you are unable to focus due to anxiety or excessive stress, minerals such as Min-Tran can provide great balancing.  It is a well studied fact that our soil is deplete of minerals, much to the detriment of our mental health.  Two great sources of information on this topic are Empty Harvest by Jensen & Anderson and In Defense of Food by Pollan.  If you have nine minutes, this is a great interview with Michael Pollan exploring some of these issues.
The side bar describes the Purification Program.  This is the premier program for removing "brain fog" and developing healthy eating habits.
My personal favorite is nutritional balancing utilizing Hair Mineral Analysis.  This test can pinpoint many underlying problems and give guidance as to how to supplement in order to improve overall energy and function.  This is particularly helpful for people with health issues who have not been able to find a solution anywhere else.  It is also great for those who want to avoid health problems.  Together with your personal health history, we put develop a nutritional protocol that is customized for your needs.
