Food Sensitivities

May 21, 2013 7PMFood Sensitivities or Intolerances affect over 80% of the population, while less than 5% actually have a true food allergy. It’s one of the fastest growing health concerns in our country! The top “red flag” signs of having a Food Intolerance are: digestive issues, headaches, fatigue, skin problems, and allergy symptoms.If any of those symptoms sounds familiar, you won’t want to miss this event. The foods you eat matter because when our digestive track is kept in a constant state of inflammation by foods that aggravate it, it is unable to perform its two basic functions: eliminating waste and absorbing the nutrients that allow our body to function at 100%!Join us to learn more about the most common Intolerances, what type of testing is available, and what you can begin doing today to get back on the path to health!

The end result is after a while, patients are left with little choices of food to eat. In our practice, we treat food allergy through several different approaches so that not only the food allergies are addressed, but the underlying causes of leaky gut is also treated. This way, they can go back to normal eating habits. In the beginning, we use digestive enzymes and allergy tapping to clear the food allergies. But the majority of the work lies in the gut regenerating, immune strengthening, Candida controlling and emotional support (natural) remedies we give to people thru precise Electro-dermal testing. These remedies helps the body to repair leaky gut and reduce the stress of emotions have on the pituitary gland, which produce more growth hormones for better regeneration. We also coach patients to set up routine meal times, sleep more and take steps to reduce stresses in their lives. Thus our patients usually do very well in the long run, without having to worry about their allergies coming back.Holistic Moms Network - Northwest ChapterHomefirst Building , 2000 Golf Road, Rolling MeadowsThe Emotion Behind Money Julie CasserlyMarch 12, 2009, 7 pmNo matter how hard some people want to attract –or retain--money, the financial component of success seems elusive, and they remain frustrated and puzzled.

Often we live in limited and habitual patterns that do not allow us to experience our full potential. Healing is the process by which we bring more of ourselves and our inner truth into our lives. Whether there is a physical illness, hormonal imbalance, or emotional issue that calls them into the healing process. We look at 5 aspects of ourselves that function simultaneously, making the fabric of who we are, and then work with each of these. When all 5 aspects are addressed and working together, we come into alignment, and have an opportunity to experience true well-being and health. The 5 Aspects of Healing provide a framework for achieving total health.

They cannot be broken. They work for all, every time. Once you “get it”, there is no looking back! It will be part of you forever. The simplest definition of this law is “like attracts like.” But, other definitions:1. You get what you think about, whether wanted or unwanted.2. You are a living magnet.3. You get what you put your energy and focus on, whether wanted or unwanted.4. Energy attracts like energyAnd, the law works for holistic moms. We have a choice about those with whom we surround ourselves. We have a choice about simplifying our lives. In a culture in which workaholics are revered, it is easy to catch the train – to follow the crowd – to do more.

Low energy levels and2. Pervasive feelings of being weighed down by depression and excessive body weight.The bottom line - I came to realize that much of my patients' discontents had to do with body image. More importantly, I began to understand that bad eating habits and nutritional deficits led to excessive weight, depression and feelings of lethargy.
