  • Top10 Practices to get out of a rut. Be ready for 2022

    Over the past few months, I've experienced ups and downs; setbacks for a comeback- and even felt like a phoenix rising out of the ashes. I would be amiss if I even eluded to the fact that I came out of those experiences based on my knowledge alone. Yet, I can firmly settle into the fact that my "come up" happened when I allowed someone to speak life into my situation and remind me that I can be the creator of my destiny. As we set on the ledge of the new year, there is a lot to be thankful for and a great deal of opportunity for reflection. I'm stepping into another phase of my life. I wonder how my desire to be the best wellness coach aligns with YOUR desire to discover your creative power outside of conventional wisdom. I too vacillate between wellness and dysfunction, emotional balance, and emotional pain. 2021 I overcame insurmountable physical pain from rotator cuff surgery, death of family members, the perceived death of YOUR Healing Place, and the death of my marriage! In spite of all that, I choose to create in the affirmative. And, I know you do too. This blog is intended to show you how to embrace anything that life throws your way without losing your footing; no matter how bazaar. What I did will shock you! Top 10 practices to shift your reality From Panic to Empowerment: 1. DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING When in an emotional, spiritual, physical crisis- stand still. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.00. (Monopoly Reference) 2. Listen! Shut Up and listen. Your spirit will whisper, then speak more loudly until you feel like you are losing your mind. ("Did you hear that", you'll ask audibly.) 3. Take action when you get the "green light" intuitive hit to press on. Only listen to what feels right. Stop thinking so much. Feel into life. Use the new energy to accept how you feel about things. That is your SUPERPOWER for healing and for happiness. 4. Take responsibility for your health. Access the support you need to rid yourself of unwanted symptoms to regain your vitality. Be objective about your sleep, energy, bowels & moods. 5. Get a full-body detox, or a Hair Tissue Analysis, or both as a bundle Clear the gunk from your lungs, liver, colon, blood, lymph, kidneys, and bladder so you can breathe life into your existence. Get the proper mineral combination for your biochemistry. Discover toxic elements secretly derailing your health. Finally, discover the proper diet for YOUR body! Stop guessing! 6. Connect with like-minded people that understand your desire for growth and are willing to grow with you. Get support from someone who knows how to navigate the game of life that can teach you how to win. Connect with members of Your Healing Place on the WIX App using code CO2JVE. RSVP for Girls Night Out Events! 7. Acknowledge that the life you live now is the sum of your past experiences. Be chill about accepting that you need to discover more to move out of your current rut of sadness, despair, frustration, guilt, loneliness. These are some of the emotions that get trapped in your organs that create dis-ease. Don't know where to begin? Start with a Zoom Wellness Consult with Dr. Stephanie, Naturopath & Certified Magnetic Mind coach. 8. Get a zyto scan that identifies and offers viable natural solutions for your transformation. The scan reveals trapped emotions lodged in organs, that represent the root cause of your dis-ease. It's high time to get out of the mindset of just treating symptoms. 9. Read! Your brain needs reading to stimulate clear thinking. Never stop learning. If you're into audiobooks, do that. Whatever you do be sure to be completely present with what you allow to enter your spirit via, eyes & ears. Your sanity depends on it. 10. Be completely good to yourself. Recognize that there is NOTHING wrong with you. You do have to fix yourself. Yet, you may need a wellness coach to pull you from a place called, "The Dark Night of the Soul'. Once you take these steps you will discover how to extract the wisdom from the pain. That is the ultimate objective of being in the place that makes you question everything you ever knew. That's the place where you will rise like a phoenix and expand your emotional and mental territory to places you never thought attainable. You ARE ready for 2022 if you believe you are. But I admonish not to syke yourself into an untrue reality. If you need help seek it! It will always be available to you when you reach beyond yourself into the creative flow of everything!

  • The #1 Self Care Practice: Do It Every Year!

    Every encounter with someone who seeks my support is an opportunity to share the ("Must Do") practices of wellness. At the top of the list, before you consider anything else, is detoxification! That is the #1 single most important practice you must do every year! Imagine how awful your car would ride if you waited once a year to get an oil change & air filter. Suggesting that to you would be absurd. You know better! When you consider starting your wellness journey, your first thought should be; "I need to clean myself out." It doesn't take much thought to figure out why. Everything works better when it is clean. However, I have heard that the hole-in-the-wall eating establishments with syrup stickiness on the salt and pepper shaker serve the best food. (I may revisit that idea in another post) For now - It's critical to get to the root of why detoxification is so necessary for your wellbeing. Let's start by understanding each product within the Opening Channels Detox Protocol. What does this stuff do? ReHydration (2 oz.) ReHydration is a homeopathic combination formula for the symptoms associated with fluid imbalances. For symptoms such as dehydration, excessive thirst, lack of thirst, dry skin, bloating, headaches, stiffness in muscles and joints, mental sluggishness, and dry mucous membranes (including throat, mouth, sinuses, rectum, and vagina).† AminoGest (180 capsules) AminoGest provides a concentrated, pre-digested form of protein that helps maintain normal digestive and structural function. Formulated for maximum assimilation, AminoGest’s ocean fish protein is easily absorbed with minimal digestive effort. Catalyst-7 (180 capsules) Catalyst-7 provides highly-concentrated digestive enzymes and a blend of herbs to help maintain normal digestive function. This formula contains herbs that specifically assist with the normal function of the stomach. Colon Clear & Pure Body An herbal/nutritional supplement, Colon Clear is designed to help maintain normal bowel function. Colon Clear is not for prolonged use but helps with occasional bloating, pressure, and constipation. Pure Body Clear is an organic/wildcrafted herbal blend formulated as a gentle support for the primary elimination pathways. This blend helps maintain the normal function of the body’s filtration system including the liver, kidney, and gallbladder. Flora Synergy (150 capsules) Flora Synergy® contains the spore form probiotic Bacillus coagulans and prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (FOS) to help support normal immune and digestive response. Unlike other probiotics, these bacteria remain in spore form until they reach the small intestine and aid in maintaining intestinal microflora balance. SpectraMin (2 oz.) SpectraMin®, an ionic trace mineral complex, helps maintain the body’s mineral and electrolyte balance. Naturally sourced from the Great Salt Lake, the minerals and numerous trace minerals in this formula are in their ionic form to expedite the absorption process. What are the benefits of detoxification beyond the obvious? I've detoxed every year for the past 13 years. I am always overjoyed to see a peachy glow in my skin. Once I turned 50, that became a priority - youthful-looking skin! That means a lot to me. Others brag about feeling the lightness of releasing more boop they even knew was possible. Older clients brag about their renewed mental clarity. Did you know that toxins in the body can lead to brain fog? Others have reported similar results. All claim to see the value in doing this one step before doing anything else. The process is easy. You take the remedies as instructed in the morning and the evening. The rehydration and spectramin formulas get added to your 1-liter bottle of water. There is no need to be chained to the toilet. Since your toxic release includes all of your elimination organs, you can go about your day feeling empowered. Whether your official birthday is this month, or you are declaring this is Your time to shine-get started. Once you begin your Opening Channels Detox program; you'll wonder why you hesitated! The journey toward wellness can be fun! It is full of aha moments for self-discovery. When you have the correct tools used in the proper order, your healing potential has no limits. On a more serious note; detoxification is the most critical aspect of maintaining optimal immunity. For the sake of not being too technical: the more toxic load, the more compromised your immune system. The less toxic load, the greater the chance your immune system can fight off microbes i.e. viruses, bacteria, fungus, etc. Not sure what that looks like for you? Book a Zoom Wellness Consult. I'd be happy to support you on your wellness journey, which, by the way, is NOT a destination. It's a lifestyle with many twists and turns that should be traveled with someone who can help you get the best results possible.

  • 10 Supplements All Women Should Consider Taking for Good Health

    The human body requires specific vitamins and minerals to function optimally. According to Dr. Joel Wallach, a famous Naturopath, and pathologist, everybody needs 90 essential nutrients to include 60 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids, and 3 essential fatty acids. According to Dr. Wallach, a well-balanced diet cannot reduce or even eliminate the need for the supplementation because the soil food is grown in can be void of many nutrients. It makes sense that if the soil is void of nutrients, the food is grown in the ground will not have the proper nutrients that it should. However, supplements can be a valuable addition to a healthy diet leading to optimal health. Not Like A Man The needs of women are similar to, but not precisely, the same as those of men. Women must understand the RDA (recommended daily allowance) and follow it to the best of their ability. One key to consider is that everyone’s need for supplementation is different. This no one-size-fits-all plan. Supplementation is impacted by many variables, including weight, activity, illness, etc. However, essential nutrients are a must for women to regain and maintain a healthy existence. Consider these supplements to optimize your health: 1. Vitamin D. Many women are deficient in this vital vitamin. Your skin is indeed able to produce vitamin D in the presence of sunlight, but that might not be sufficient if you don’t spend enough time outdoors regularly. ● Vitamin D has many functions, but its roles in calcium absorption and boosting your immune system are among the most important. ● The current RDA for women under 70 is 600 IU per day. That number increases to 800 IU per day for those over 70, lactating, and consistently active women, which causes more utilization of nutrients that need to be replenished. 2. A multivitamin. Ideally, all the human body's vitamin needs would be met by the diet if the foods consumed were not filled with pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics, blocking the assimilation of nutrients. However, it’s not always easy to eat a balanced diet that addresses every vitamin and mineral. Soil is not as mineral-rich as it used to be. The healthy, nutritious food our grandparents ate is a thing of the past, thanks to overfarming, global warming, and the need for synthetic fertilizers. Thus, creating a need for supplementation. A simple multivitamin cannot help to ensure that all of your daily requirements are met. Because of the many variations of nutritional deficiencies, few know what theory personal dietary needs are. For this reason, a simple hair test can offer valuable insight into what your body needs and what it may already be getting too much of that are causing a health problem. Too many vitamins & minerals are as devastating as not enough! 3. Calcium. Calcium is a primary component of bones. Osteoporosis is a real threat to all women as they age. But it is not written in stone that age is synonymous with declining bone health. ● Women under 50 years of age require 1,000 mg per day. ● Those over 50 need 1,200 mg per day. 4. Fiber. Fiber aids in gut motility and may help to lower cholesterol. Certain types of fiber also serve as food for gut bacteria. A healthy diet provides plenty of fiber, but if you’re not eating a healthy diet with ample fiber-rich food, a supplement can help. A natural form of fiber can be found in celery, Psyllium powder, apples, and watermelon. 5. Fish Oil. While you can live without most dietary fats, it is necessary to consume essential fatty acids. These are most easily consumed in fatty fish or fish oil supplements. If using fish as your primary source, please be mindful of getting wild-caught fish and not farm-raised. To be completely sure, either way, consider the hair test. The report offers specific dietary recommendations based on your body. Sometimes salmon, the most popular fatty fish, can be a contraindication for some. If you don't know that salmon is not good for you, you could create or make a hidden problem worse. ● There is no set recommendation for essential fatty acid intake. It doesn’t take much. As little as a gram, a day could be sufficient. Follow the label instructions. 6. Probiotics. Many health issues are believed to start in the gut. A healthy gut dramatically increases the odds of having a healthy mind and body. Probiotics, as found in yogurt, need to be fed prebiotics to maintain their survival. Imagine, we need to feed the good bacteria prebiotics to grow to outnumber the bad bacteria that can cause illness. A wonderful prebiotic is chickory root if you're looking for a coffee substitute! ● Again, follow the label instructions. 7. Vitamin B-12. This vitamin does many things in the body, including the building of DNA and red blood cells. If you eat a lot of meat, you probably don’t need a vitamin B-12 supplement. However, if you’re a vegetarian or vegan, supplementation will likely be necessary. B-12 is notorious for ramping up the energy. However, lack of energy may not always be fixed by a quick B-12 shot. Lack of energy can be attributed to a sodium/potassium imbalance or adrenal fatigue. Either of which can be easily found in the results of a Hair Tissue Analysis ● The Mayo Clinic recommends that all adults consume 2.4 micrograms of vitamin B-12 per day. 8. Iron. Menstruating women lose blood, which contains iron. One of the primary roles of iron is oxygen transport in the blood. Low iron can lead to anemia. However, anemia is not only about iron but also copper. Too much copper in the tissues can have a profound impact on the level of iron. In this instance, the problem is not iron deficiency as much as it is about excess copper. Many don’t realize that minerals have a dancing partner. When one element is off, the other “partner” can be the culprit to your new symptom. When there is too much iron in the system that is not being used by the body, the excess can create hypertension. The question for the person struggling with hypertension becomes; “Is supplementation the root of my hypertension or a malfunction of my heart?” Again, a simple hair test can help you sort out the answer, which could become the solution to getting rid of hypertension for good. That is the magic of Naturopathy. Its aim is always to get to the root of the problem to eliminate it. ● Premenopausal women are advised to consume 18 mg/day. ● Postmenopausal: 8 mg/day 9. Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that is part of the sleep process. If you sleep well, melatonin supplementation is unnecessary. On the other hand, if you have difficulties sleeping, a melatonin supplement might help you fall asleep and stay asleep. Yet, relying on melatonin misses other causes of insomnia that can be addressed by proper utilization of other nutrients. Excess calcium in the tissues caused by eating too many carbohydrates can cause Type I insomnia-can’t fall asleep. Type two insomnia-not being able to stay asleep is a cry for magnesium. Instead of random supplementation, it makes sense to invest in a hair test to know for sure. ● Try 1-2 mg to start, 30 minutes before bed. 10. Folate. Folate is necessary for pregnant women to prevent a certain type of congenital disability. Folate has several other roles in the body, too. ● For women without risk of becoming pregnant: 400 mcg/day. ● Women with a risk of pregnancy: 800 mcg/day. I would not advocate for you to go out and purchase these items. Of course, the best place to start is a talk with a practitioner that is well versed in nutrition, which may not be your PCP. However, you can get a wealth of knowledge from a Naturopath or Nutritionist. Feel free to contact me, Dr. Stephanie, your friendly Naturopath (Wellness Coach). It’s also important to realize that it’s easy to get too much of a good thing. Taking too much of any supplement can be much worse than not taking it at all. Follow the directions on the label, or better yet, get a hair test. The results give insight into the right diet for your “biochemistry” and the proper supplementation based on your personal needs. One question my clients ask all the time is, “How do I know what is the best diet for me?” The quick answer is, you won’t know unless you pay attention to how you feel. If you eat something and it makes you feel good and provides adequate energy, then your body benefited from what you ate-keep it. But, if you eat something and you become tired and experience any gastrointestinal disturbance, chances are your body couldn’t use what you ate-get rid of it! Remember that many symptoms you may take for granted and explain away as nothing serious could be signs of nutritional deficiencies. Embarking on a supplementation plan without the support of a professional can be a disaster. Connect with a professional to get the correct information for your body and your unique nutritional variations. Remember, every woman is different. You are different! Please feel free to comment. I love to hear your thoughts or question about this subject! Until next time... Be well!

  • Hair Tissue Analysis in Baltimore | Dr Stephanie

    Hair Tissue Analysis Hair Tissue Analysis The hair tissue analysis otherwise known as the hair follicle test is a test that shows nutritional balance and toxicity. The excess or deficiency of trace minerals in the body is the source of declining health. The status of your trace minerals can be examined by using hair follicle test. The process is as simple as submitting a hair or finger nail sample. Below are some frequently asked questions. Book Now WHAT IS HAIR MINERAL ANALYSIS? A. Hair tissue analysis (HTMA), is an analytical test which measures the mineral content of the hair. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting the first inch and one-half of growth closest to the scalp at the nape of the neck, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory through a series of chemical and high temperature digestive procedures. Testing is then performed using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results. Book Now WHY USE THE HAIR? WHY NOT USE THE BLOOD? A. Hair is ideal tissue for sampling and testing. First, it can be cut easily and painlessly and can be sent to the lab without special handling requirements. Second, clinical results have shown that a properly obtained sample can give an indication of mineral status and toxic metal accumulation following long-term or even acute exposure. An HTMA reveals a unique metabolic world: intracellular activity, which cannot be seen through most other tests. This provides a blueprint of the biochemistry occurring during the period of hair growth and development. Examples: Thirty to 40 days following an acute exposure, elevated serum levels of lead may be undetectable. This is due to the body removing the lead from the serum as a protective measure and depositing the metal into such tissues as the liver, bones, teeth and hair. Nutrient loss from the body can become so advanced that severe health conditions can develop without any appreciable changes noted in those same nutrient levels in a blood test. Symptoms of elemental deficiency can be present long before low levels can be detected in the serum. Excess sodium is associated with hypertension, but adequate amounts are required for normal health. Hair is used as one of the tissues of choice by the Environmental Protection Agency in determining toxic metal exposure. A 1980 report from the E.P.A. stated that human hair can be effectively used for biological monitoring of the highest priority toxic metals. This report confirmed the findings of other studies in the U.S. and abroad, which concluded that human hair may be a more appropriate tissue than blood or urine for studying community exposure to some trace elements. WHAT CAN CAUSE A MINERAL IMBALANCE? A. There are many factors to take into consideration, such as: DIET – Improper diet through high intake of refined and processed foods, alcohol and fad diets can all lead to a chemical imbalance. Even the nutrient content of a “healthy” diet can be inadequate, depending upon the soil in which the food was grown or the method in which it was prepared. STRESS – Physical or emotional stress can deplete the body of many nutrients while also reducing the capability to absorb and utilize many nutrients. MEDICATIONS – Both prescription and over-the-counter medications can deplete the body's stores of nutrient minerals and/or increase the levels of toxic metals. These medications include diuretics, antacids, aspirin, and oral contraceptives. POLLUTION – From adolescence through adulthood the average person is continually exposed to a variety of toxic metal sources such as cigarette smoke (cadmium), hair dyes (lead), hydrogenated oils (nickel), antiperspirants (aluminum), dental amalgams (mercury and cadmium), copper and aluminum cookware and lead-based cosmetics. These are just a few of the hundreds of sources that can contribute to nutrient imbalances and adverse metabolic effects. NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS – Taking incorrect supplements or improper amounts of supplements can produce many vitamin and mineral excesses and/or deficiencies, contributing to an overall biochemical imbalance. INHERITED PATTERNS – A predisposition toward certain mineral imbalances, deficiencies, and excesses can be inherited from parents. Book Zoom Wellness Consult CAN VITAMIN REQUIREMENTS BE DETERMINED FROM A MINERAL TEST? A. Minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Minerals influence each of these factors, and they, in turn, influence mineral status. Minerals act as enzyme activators, and vitamins are synergistic to minerals as coenzymes. It is extremely rare that a mineral disturbance develops without a corresponding disturbance in the synergistic vitamin(s). It is also rare for a disturbance in the utilization or activity of a vitamin to occur without affecting a synergistic mineral(s). For example, vitamin C affects iron absorption and reduces copper retention. Boron and iron influence the status of vitamin B2. Vitamin B2 affects the relationship between calcium and magnesium. Vitamin B1 enhances sodium retention, B12 enhances iron and cobalt absorption, and vitamin A enhances the utilization of zinc while antagonizing vitamins D and E. Protein intake will affect zinc status, etc. Therefore, evaluating mineral status provides good clues of vitamin status and requirements. Continuing research at Trace Elements involves the recognition of many synergistic and antagonistic interrelationships between minerals and vitamins. WHAT INFORMATION IS OBTAINED FROM A COMPLETE HAIR ANALYSIS PROFILE? A. After hundreds of thousands of hair follicle test, Trace Elements has created a unique system of interpreting hair mineral analysis results. Each test report will provide the clinician with the most complete and comprehensive evaluation and discussion of significant mineral levels, ratios, and toxic metals as tested in the hair. Included is a listing of individual foods and food groups that the doctor can recommend to eat or avoid in accordance with food allergy indicators and individualized metabolic requirements. (Please refer to the Laboratory Services section for details on the Profile #2 test) IS HAIR TISSUE ANALYSIS SUPPORTED BY RESEARCH? ( Trace Elements Lab ) A. Hair tissue analysis or hair follicle test is supported by an impressive body of literature in a variety of respected national and international scientific publications. Over the past twenty-five years hair, mineral testing has been extensive. Each year in the United States alone, federally licensed clinical laboratories perform over 150,000 hair mineral assays for health care professionals interested in an additional screening aid for a comprehensive patient evaluation. This does not take into consideration the thousands of subjects used in numerous continuing research studies conducted by private and government research agencies. The following illnesses have been associated with mineral imbalances : Arteriosclerosis Osteo/Rheumatoid Arthritis High cholesterol, Fatty liver Migraine headaches Hypertension, heart disease Learning disabilities, toxic metal exposure Impaired Thyroid function, hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism Joint Stiffness, Insomnia Colitis, gastritis Hyperactivity, diverticulitis Hair loss, Premature Graying Loss of smell/taste PMS symptoms, Adrenal exhaustion Dermatitis, Eczema Anxiety, depression, insomnia Muscle weakness, kidney damage, incontinence
