I’m writing this while sitting on our lanai in Maui Hawaii. It is a delightful 80 degrees with a soft breeze blowing. We are here for ten days with our best friends of forty years, John and Sandy from the Sacramento area. If you have been following us for a while you may remember us doing an Alaskan cruise last year at this time with them. Our ages (68-75 yrs.) prompted us to plan a special trip together once a year to make memories!
I know, that’s kind of backward from what you’ve been told! Today you’re going to learn the truth about why you may not be losing weight and why I think so many people struggle to do so.
Most of us never learn that in order for the body to release “fat” stores it must have the ability to detoxify first. Toxins are stored in fat! If your liver does not have the support to move these toxins into a water-soluble form and excrete them out of the body they get recirculated back into the bloodstream and back into the fat and fat loss stops.
Five years ago I started doing thirty-day classes with Dr. Jana Schrier here in Georgetown TX. They were called “Detox to Weight-loss”. She had asked that I spend one night a week with her patients educating them on why you must detox the body first before the weight will come off. Not only was it a huge success (many alumni are still practicing what they learned) but Dr. Schrier saw many of the lab numbers for some of these patients that were very positive changes in a thirty-day time frame.
Have You Heard of Obesogens?
Obesogens are artificial chemicals that are believed to contribute to obesity. They come from things like plastics, cookware, cosmetics, pharmaceutical drugs. Additionally they come from pesticides and herbicides, and chemicals used for industrial purposes just to name a few.
Obesogens interfere with your endocrine system and affect your hormones. Some endocrine disrupters exert their effects by activating estrogen receptors. This can cause harmful effects in both men and women.
The role of environmental chemicals in obesity has garnered increased attention in academics. The National Institutes of Health has come on board. They are suggesting this could be part of the reason for our obesity epidemic. “There are many studies in both humans and animals. The National Toxicology Program found real biological plausibility.” In 2011 the NIH launched a 3-year effort to fund research exploring the role of environmental chemical exposures in obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
When you lose weight you free up all these Obesogens from the fat stores and “wham!” the body gets inundated with toxicity! This, in turn, leads to the lowering of your active thyroid, which lowers metabolism. This makes you hold onto fat!
You ARE Toxic!
We come into the world toxic. As far back as 2005 a study done on ten newborn baby’s showed 287 chemicals in those little bodies!
There is no way you or I are not filled with toxins. Even if we eat organic, reduce chemical exposure in our home with our cleaning products, cookware, cosmetics, etc. we live in a sea of chemicals.
If you work in an office you are surrounded by plastics that out-gas, carpets that out-gas, the air that is full of this stuff. If you wash your hands you absorb chlorine and fluoride right through your skin.
The most recent area of toxicity is coming from the “unseen” world of Electro Magnetic Fields. Science has now shown that these EMF’s can lead to insulin resistance (among hundreds of other problems). The EMF’s affect the calcium channel on the cell site, which is a primary cell function, and in doing so impact the whole cell. You and I live in a “sea” of wi-fi signal and cell signals!
Before Starting Any Weight-loss Program – Detox!
This may feel overwhelming but I’m here to help you sort all this out and guide you towards detoxing safely!
I’m first and foremost an educator. What we found in our “live” classes was, the participants “got” why they needed to detox, not only for weight-loss but for long term health. Let me teach you things you did not know about why your body is holding onto weight!
10 Day Detox
Our next class starts on October 21st! This is the perfect time to do this, before the holiday’s hit and the cold and flu season is in full swing. We will be setting your body up to get off sugar, gently detox, lower inflammation, boost immune function as well as teaching you tips and tools to start to lower your toxic burden.
I will be coming back from a ten-day trip to Hawaii and I will be ready to DETOX with you!!

Let’s do this!
It’s that time of year again. Get Your Flu Shot signs everywhere! Nobody likes to get the flu and for some it is down right dangerous, but do we all need a flu shot????
I choose not to get the flu shot because according to the the Centers for Disease Control, most flu vaccines contain mercury in the form of thimerosal, some containing as much as 25mcg per dose – which is more than 250 times above the EPA’s safety limit!
The transition from “cancer patient” to “cancer survivor”
So many people are lost in the transition from “cancer patient” to “cancer survivor”. The feel like they were pushed off a cliff after their last treatment with no guidance on how to restore their bodies.
1,735,350 new cancer cases were reported in 2018 in the United States alone. We are not winning the war on cancer and yet the good news is Cancer is not a death sentence! BUT, only if you help the body recovery from the cancer treatments can you have hope that the cancer won’t return.
Are you someone who doesn’t care much about bread and potatoes unless they are drenched in butter or cheese? Do you crave cheese, chips, fries, ice cream or popcorn loaded with butter? If you like sweets at all, do you only lose control with peanut butter cups or ice cream? In this blog, you will discover why.
On Facebook last week I posted the new “Black Box” warnings about over-the-counter sleep aids. What a firestorm that set off! You asked me to do a blog on sleep and natural solutions for sleeping. So here it is……
