Kate’s Magik Introduces Monthly Natural Perfume Subscription

K

ate’s Magik has announced the launch of The Bastet Perfume Society, a monthly natural perfume subscription. Each month, members of the Bastet Perfume Society will receive a 3 mL bottle of an exotic, masterfullycrafted natural perfume. Due to the pure nature of plant-based perfumes, they are not only deliciously fragrant, beautifying and seductive, but they also carry medicinal and therapeutic qualities that support body, mind and spirit. “I have spent this past year studying, sourcing and acquiring a collection of notably rare and exotic ingredients—some of which cost more per gram than gold. With the Bastet Perfume Society, there will be blends that move you to the core, transport you to hidden, mystical worlds or evoke deep and possibly unexpected emotions,” says founder Kate Becker, who has 15 years of experience as a therapeutic, natural perfumer. Working with the pure essences of plants, flowers, fruits, seeds, roots, resins, woods and barks from all over the world has been one of the most fulfilling, joyful experiences of Becker’s life. “If you find a blend you love, a full-size Roll-On will be available for purchase, and members will receive a $10 credit toward the larger size,” she adds.

What is an End of Life Mentor?

I

n the dying process of a loved one, family member, close friend or partner, we find that we need as much support as can be available. There is also the opportunity for expressing and sharing of love, grace, beautiful moments, sacred space, wrapping up unfinished business and more. An End of Life Mentor is a death and dying expert who serves as a personal resource. This is someone who supports as needed—relieves stress, answers the tough questions, interfaces with medical professionals, translates medical lingo, runs errands if needed, or fills in so that a Danielle caregiver can take a deep breath or get a good Dvorak night’s sleep. This is someone who can be there to “have your back” when in that state of emotional overwhelm that often happens when someone close to us is dying. An End of Life Mentor can: 1) work alongside hospice, 2) offer support in place of hospice for those who don’t want to utilize hospice or admit they are dying, 3) offer vigiling—sitting for many hours with the dying person at the very end of life, typically the last two or three days. Hospice is a wonderful service and should always be encouraged when death is something that can no longer be denied. However, after the first week or two, the amount of time and attention a hospice can spend on any given patient becomes limited. There are many situations that warrant larger chunks of time spent in supporting the family, caregivers, etc. than a hospice can cover. This is when hiring an independent End of Life Mentor (also referred to as a Death Doula, Soul Midwife or End of Life Guide) can be of great comfort to the dying person, family, friends, caregivers and anyone involved in this precious time at the end of a life. End of Life Mentors are experienced, trained and certified in end of life issues, ranging from knowledge of advanced directives, the dying process, how to calm and comfort, leading meditations and more. Danielle Dvorak first felt the call to work with those at the end of their lives over 20 years ago, and has since spent many years supporting family and working with hospice in assisting the dying, their families and caregivers. Recently, Dvorak completed a training in accompanying the dying, resulting in a certificate as an End of Life Mentor. Connect at 847-323-9188, Danielle@EndOfLifeMentor.com or EndOfLifeMentor.com.

Mythbuster: Epsom Salts Pull Toxins From The Body

A

common misconception is that Epsom salts in a bath will pull toxins from the body. However, that’s not how it works. It is important to know that there are only six ways for a human to eliminate toxins: through the skin, by urinating, by defecating, through breath (voice), through tears and through spit/vomiting. When we soak in a normal bath of Epsom salts, the salts will help to relax the muscles, and if essential oils and botanicals are added to the salts, that will help in several healing processes as well. The heat from the water opens the pores of the skin and allows the salts and botanicals into the body’s system. However, unless one is able to steadily control the temperature of the water, it will soon cool off and the action of the salts will stop. In a sensory deprivation tank (flotation tank), the temperature is controlled to between 94 and 95.5 degrees, and a person floats in 800 pounds of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt. This process Kalyn Wolf allows for deeper absorption into the body’s system through the heat of the water, and helps to speed up the metabolism. It’s through the metabolism that the body detoxes faster than normal. Nothing of significance is drawn out through the skin during the session, but after the session is over, metabolism speeds up and the detox process begins. This is why it is suggested to drink a lot of water after a float session. Kalyn Wolf is the owner of Cloud Nine Flotation Center and has been involved in the healing arts as an energy and sound healer since 1978. Involved in Flotation Therapy for over 30 years, she is a best-selling author and regularly gives classes on intentional breathing and grounding.

Bee Killers

A study in the journal Nature Communications examined wild bee populations relative to the use of controversial neonic (neonicotinoid) pesticides from 1994 to 2011, and discovered that extinction rates paralleled their use on plants throughout the country. The 34 species analyzed experienced a 10 percent population drop across the board, with five of the species seeing a decrease of 20 percent or more, and the most-impacted group declining by 30 percent. Researchers say this indicates that up to half of the population decline could be attributed to the use of neonics. “It contributes, but there is a bigger picture,” says Jeffrey Pettis, an entomologist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture Beltsville Bee Laboratory, in Maryland. Other factors are thought to include parasites such as varroa mites and nosema fungus (a bacterial disease known as foulbrood) plus viruses, drought and loss of habitat. Meanwhile, the Friends of the Earth (FOE) environmental group has launched a petition calling on the Ace and True Value hardware companies to follow Lowe’s and Home Depot’s example of phasing out the pesticides. FOE says, “If these garden retailers don’t act fast, they’ll lose customers. A new poll shows that 66 percent of Americans prefer to shop at Lowe’s and Home Depot because they’ve committed to stop selling bee-killing pesticides.” Take action at Tinyurl.com/BanNeonicsPetition.

Neonic Pesticides Again Linked to Decline

Last Call

Endangered Species Protection Act May Go Extinct The federal Endangered Species Act (ESA), passed in 1973, strengthened earlier federal protections for animals that had been nearly wiped out by humans. The act faces opposition from those that believe it both unfairly protects animals that poach livestock and restricts land use. At a recent hearing titled Modernizing the Endangered Species Act, Republican Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming, head of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said the ESA is not working anymore. Natural Resources Committee Chairman Republican Congressman Rob Bishop of Utah opines that the act has never been used for the rehabilitation of species and instead has been controlling the land, saying, “It has been hijacked.” Yet Daniel M. Ashe, president and chief executive of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, says, “The Endangered Species Act is the world’s ‘gold standard’ for conservation and protection of animals.” According to many experts, the world’s flora and fauna are experiencing a global extinction crisis caused by human activity, but we have also learned how to protect species and help them recover. Eight species that would probably have disappeared already were it not for the ESA include the black-footed ferret, humpback whale, bald eagle, American alligator, grizzly bear, Florida manatee, California condor and gray wolf.

Garden Clubs Help Beautify Roads Displays of flowers populating highway meridians, road embankments and adjacent green spaces are often due to the efforts of garden clubs working with state departments of transportation (DOT). Some of these pioneers also inspire other clubs to pursue similar collaborations, often with public support. “The people of Texas have joined wholeheartedly in what Lady Bird Johnson started,” says Linda Love, roadside beautification chairperson of the Texas Garden Clubs, Inc. (TexasGardenClubs.org), headquartered in Fort Worth. Their committee recognizes planting projects on state and county highways assisted by 320 local clubs encompassing about 10,000 members. She points to particularly attractive areas along highways 75 in Richardson, plus highways 45 and 35 extending south of Dallas, where concentrations of blue bonnets “look like lakes,” says Love. Other planted native flower patches include Indian paintbrush and gaillardia. She notes that the state prohibits mowing of blue bonnets until after they’ve bloomed and dropped their seeds; picking rules preserve their beauty. Gail Hill, chair of The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc.’s (ffgc.org) roadside beautification committee, based in Winter Park, reports the Ella P. Wood Paths of Sunshine Award Program that partners with the Florida Wildflower Foundation (FlaWildflowers.org) recognizes the efforts of state DOT maintenance crews in establishing and maintaining roadside wildflowers. “The department has run a strong program for decades,” she says. Local clubs are encouraged to petition elected officials for new resolutions to develop roadside wildflower projects. “About half of Florida’s counties have passed resolutions, including most recently, Santa Rosa and Escambia counties,” says Hill. This year, the Raleigh-based The Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. (GardenClubOfNC.org), with more than 200 chapters, is working with the state DOT to commemorate the centennial of America’s entry into World War I by planting red poppies and bachelor buttons. Roadside Development Chairperson Pat Cashwell reports that about 1,500 acres of wildflowers, including cosmos, are planted annually on state and county highways each summer and fall, largely funded by the sale of special license plates, with awards to highway department crews. “We get letters from people after they drive through the state commenting on the floral beauty,” she enthuses. Many garden clubs also establish flowers in parks, schoolyards, church properties and other public locations.

Summer Special 10% Savings on Body Wraps (value of $18-$20)

Managing Stress When Buying a New Home by Carol Nigut

R

eal Estate transactions are inherently stressful. Tucson’s current market with limited inventory of available homes makes it especially stressful for buyers who need to be prepared to make offers quickly or risk losing their preferred home. Stress is closely linked to sleeping problems, health problems, relationship problems, job performance problems and general poor quality of life. Knowing how to reduce and manage stress when purchasing a new home is vitally important. Preparation is key. Here are some tips for making it through the home-buying process with less stress. • Select a Realtor to help locate properties, inform and guide throughout the process. Buying a home is very complicated; don’t go it alone. • Obtain a prequalification form from a lender before start ing to look for a home. A realtor can help find a lender. • Become familiar with real estate jargon and the steps of the transaction process itself. Understanding the acronyms and knowing what to expect will greatly reduce wonder ing and worrying. • Read and review the Arizona Association of Real Estate “Buyer’s Advisory”. Agents should provide one. This is a required form that provides excellent resources for obtain ing answers to all the questions buyers have. • Maintain regular self-care practices: exercise, yoga, meditation, nutritional, spiritual. In the rush of buying a home, it is easy to let these go. Real Estate transactions are full of ups and downs. It is very important to continue self-care to sustain balance. • As much as possible, retain a sense of humor and have fun. Buying a new home may be stressful, but the outcome is one to celebrate and enjoy.

Carol Nigut is an Affiliated Buyer’s Representative with specialized knowledge and experience for assisting buyers.

Women Who Care in Tucson

D

riven by the desire to make a difference and inspired by other Women Who Care (WWC) chapters around the U.S. and Canada, over 100 caring women in Tucson have created a local philanthropic group of fabulous women who are capable of doing great things in our community. WWC Tucson are an informal group of women who love to give, making a direct impact by supporting local charities in our community. The WWC Tucson chapter and its events are run by an executive committee of big-hearted volunteers, along with the assistance of some very generous sponsors. The goal of the group is to support the wonderful work that our local charities do in funds, exposure and awareness in a

minimal amount of time. There are two upcoming “Big Give” dates. At the upcoming event on July 13, there will be a check-in and mingle from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., and the meeting following from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Westin La Paloma Resort. The next will occur on October 19, at the same times and place. Four times per year, members show up with a blank check in hand to give big. Each member has the opportunity to nominate a local charity, and nominating members will be asked to make a short, informal presentation to the group about their charity’s mission and why it is deserving of the members’ vote. After a Q&A session, an anonymous ballot is held and the charity with the most votes will be the recipient. Each member writes a $100 check made out to the charity with the most votes, given to the selected charity within two weeks of the meeting. The member who nominated the recipient charity will be asked to participate in the Big Give. The winning charity is then invited back to the next meeting to share with members the big impact their donations have made.

The Benefits of Having an Astrological Reading

A

by Shivani Baker

strology is an ancient science centuries old, and many cultures have been using it for thousands of years. In America, it is still a new phenomena, and only became popular since the 1960s. Those who believe in reincarnation believe that the soul never dies, and enters a new body to continue the soul’s evolution. That evolution is shown in our birth chart. The birth chart explains our relationship to our parents, shows attitudes about money, career and relationships, sexual orientation, creativity, health, spirituality and children. An astrology reading from a professional can explain why certain areas of our lives have been challenging and others have been easy. A good astrologer will help navigate the blind spots in

one’s chart (where we can’t see clearly) and we all have these. They can help us with timing of events, such as moving, changing jobs, getting married, selling/ buying a home. This is done by interpreting the planets’ transits or where the lancets are now in there orbit, and how the planets are aspecting one’s birth chart. This information is very empowering, because the more we are aware or conscious of, the better choices we can make for ourselves. Astrology is a complex and complete science to help us on our soul’s journey. Getting a reading from a professional astrologer can help one navigate the rough passages in life, and help when at a major crossroad.

to Cleanse Body & Mind

Take Toxins Out of Your Life by Meredith Montgomery

T

he term “detox” has been gaining traction in health circles, but cleansing practices have existed for millennia, ranging from Egyptian hydrotherapy to Medieval Lenten practices and Native American fasting, smudging and sweat lodges. The truth is that we need cleansing now more than ever—to rid our bodies of chemical overload and our minds of negative thinking. The Environmental Defense Fund has counted more than 100 chemicals produced in the U.S. that are present in everyday products and hazardous to humans and the environment. “Our body is a natural detoxifier, ridding itself of toxins through pooping, peeing, sweating and shedding skin. But in our current toxic overload situation, it’s not always an efficient process,” observes Deanna Minich, Ph.D., an author and functional nutritionist in Washington state. Some experts believe many commercial detoxification programs are unsafe, extreme and ineffective. “Psychologically, a short-term cleanse can act as a stepping stone if you’re eating fast food and donuts every day,” says Dr. Michael Greger, a Washington, D.C., physician specializing in clinical nutrition and author of How Not to

Die. “What matters more is longterm—what you’re eating a decade from now. No quick fix is going to do it, it’s a lifestyle change.”

Feed Your Microbiome

When the microbiome becomes depleted, overall health is affected. Dr. Robynne Chutkan, a gastroenterologist at Georgetown University Hospital, founder of the Digestive Center for Wellness, in Washington, D.C., and author of Gutbliss and The Microbiome Solution, explains, “The GI tract is the body’s engine, and microbes are the worker bees that operate the machinery so that digestion and toxin removal can happen.” She recommends switching to a

Get Dirty

“Health and wealth have become associated with cleanliness, yet the opposite is probably true,” assesses Chutkan. “Kids come in from the playground to use hand sanitizers and eat processed snacks. Instead, discard the microbiome-disrupting sanitizer and provide fresh vegetables for them to eat outside. We don’t want kids exposed to any serious pathogens, but getting a little dirty is essential.” Studies have found that children with pets are more likely to have fewer allergies and infections and take fewer antibiotics than those living in pet-free households (Clinical & Experimental Allergy and Kuopio University Hospital,

plant-filled diet to effectively repopulate the microbiome and be aware of how food is grown. “Much store-bought produce, even organic options, is grown in depleted soil. Seek out biodynamic farmers that prioritize nutrient-rich soil to foster microbes,” Chutkan says. Even planting a couple of herbs or microgreens on the kitchen windowsill can make a difference. “Just picking those herbs and getting your hands in healthy dirt increases your exposure to healthpromoting microbes.”


Finland). Pets that venture outdoors bring healthy microbes inside; so does fresh air, which purifies poorer quality indoor air. Chutkan also warns of excessive bathing. “When we scrub ourselves, we rub off microbes and naturally occurring oils; unless we’re filthy, we just need to gently rinse.” Marketers convince consumers that products with toxic ingredients are necessities, but coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and honey can effectively replace many toiletries.

the staple of the meal plan, is a nourishing and easy-to-digest, porridge-like blend of beans, rice and Indian spices. “When you eat a mono diet of just kitchari, your body can transfer the energy that normally goes toward digestion into cleansing and healing other systems,” says Douillard. For those not ready to maintain such a limited diet, he recommends a polydiet with the option to add seasonal steamed vegetables, oatmeal and other gluten-free grains.

Burn Fat Cells

Few Snacks, More Water

According to ayurveda, burning fat fuels detoxification because toxins from preservatives, pollutants, pesticides and other damaging chemicals are stored in our fat cells. When fat is metabolized and used as an energy source, the toxins are released, ready to be flushed out. “When we’re not burning fat, toxins can accumulate, cause congestion in the lymphatic channels, overwhelm the liver and ultimately be deposited back into fat cells or stored in the arteries, heart and brain,” comments Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner Dr. John Douillard, of Boulder, Colorado. He’s the author of Eat Wheat and a former director of player development and nutrition advisor for the New Jersey Nets professional basketball team.

Reboot with a Quick Cleanse

To stimulate the body’s natural ability to burn fat, Douillard recommends a four-day, at-home detox cleanse. “The digestive system is responsible for delivering nutrients and escorting dangerous toxins out of your body; if you can’t digest well, you can’t detoxify well,” he says. Unlike drastic fasts and juice cleanses, which can deplete nutrients, he recommends stimulating fat metabolism with a cleanse that starts each morning with melted ghee followed by a simple nonfat diet throughout the day. According to research published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, ghee, a clarified butter, has been proven to remove environmental toxins by attaching to toxic fats. Kitchari,

Work toward eating three meals a day—a light breakfast, big lunch and

light and early dinner—without snacking in-between, and fasting for 13 hours each night. Douillard notes, “This regimen should be maintained beyond the cleanse because it gives the body a chance to use up its carbohydrates—its normal, go-to fuel—and switch to its calmer, more stable, detoxifying fuel— body fat.” Adapt the cleanse to avoid strain, because when under stress, the lymphatic system shuts down and the body stores fat and toxins. “If three meals a day with no snacks is not possible yet, have a nonfat high-protein snack and plan to eat more protein at your next meal,” suggests

5 Ways to Detox Every Day by Meredith Montgomery

A

s soon as we start eating healthier diets, our body is able to detoxify more efficiently and diseases begin to be reversed,” says Dr. Michael Greger, a physician and creator of NutritionFacts.org. Follow these tips to enhance the detoxification process at mealtimes.

1

Eat broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables raw or chop them at least 40 minutes before cooking to maximize intake of the phytonutrient sulforaphane, which boosts detoxifying enzymes in the liver. For the time-crunched, Greger suggests adding a small amount of any type of raw cruciferous vegetables to the cooked ones.

2

Always choose colorful produce, with the exception of white mushrooms and cauliflower. “White foods are stripped of nutrition,” says Greger. Pigment indicates the richness of antioxidants that keep the body functioning efficiently. He likes adding shreds of economical and long-lasting red cabbage as an everyday garnish.

3

Follow the seasons, because nature provides the ideal harvest for each season—heavier, denser foods in winter, like wheat, dairy, roots, nuts and seeds; and cooling, high-energy fruits and vegetables in summer. Dr. John Douillard, creator of the 3-Season Diet Challenge, remarks that research suggests that gut microbes are meant to change with local seasonal foods to optimize digestion, mood and immunity.

4

Avoid plastics by limiting intake of foods stored or cooked in plastic, especially cling wrap, which is made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a known carcinogen, according to the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer. Also avoid canned goods unless labeled bisphenol A (BPA)-free. “A lot of toxins enter our bodies through processed, overcooked and fried foods,” observes Deanna Minich, Ph.D. “As we replace these foods with nourishing options, we need to also minimize plastic packaging.”

5

Filter water because, “We are primarily made of water, so if we’re drinking and bathing in contaminated water, it impacts health,” says Minich who recommends using a national testing laboratory to assess home tap water. The results can then be coupled with the Environmental Working Group’s buying guide (Tinyurl.com/EWG-Buying-Guide) to determine the most appropriate water filter to deal with the contaminants that may be present.

Emotional Release

“Toxins are best understood less as poisons than as barriers—obstacles to the life and health we truly want,” says Minich. As a functional medicine nutritionist, she believes that food as medicine is only one aspect of full-spectrum health. Her approach revolves around clusters of nutritional, anatomical, psychological

and spiritual life issues that can be jointly detoxified, supported and healed. “Good eating alone will not necessarily solve our emotional woes or stop our limiting beliefs and toxic self-talk,” she explains in Whole Detox, a book based on a whole-life, whole-systems, whole-foods approach to detoxification. “We need to remove all the barriers that impede our growth. Limiting thoughts, as well as heavy metals and pesticides, are toxic barriers that weigh us down, sapping energy that might be used for better things.” Her 21-day program is designed to establish long-term lifestyle changes with simple habits. She recommends monitoring our emotions and tracking thoughts with daily writing exercises. “Look at yourself like you’re examining a food label to get to the root of limiting patterns,” she says, encouraging questions such as, “Is this thought healthy for me?”

Douillard. “Or start with four meals, and work your way down to three.” Aim to drink half your healthiest body weight in ounces of room-temperature water every day, while also sipping warm-to-hot water—believed to soften the intestinal tract, move the lymph and hydrate the cells more effectively than cold water—every 10 to 15 minutes for two weeks. Plain water has a hydrating effect that not even lemon water can replicate.

or, “Do I want this thought in my being?” Be mindful of speech as well; swearing, exaggerating and interrupting can have deleterious effects, while uplifting affirmations can inspire positive actions. She attests that visualization can help prevent the creative self from shutting down, another aspect of toxicity. “Be intuitive and imaginative; allow creative expression to flow. Before you can manifest what you want in life, you have to envision it.” Minich wants patients to invite introspection by taking a few minutes each day to be in solitude and silence, allowing meaning and purpose to surface. Daily stress relief practices such as meditation, yoga, self-massage and mindful breathing can foster stress reduction. “Life shouldn’t feel like an emergency. We need to navigate around stress so we’re not inundated by it,” counsels Douillard. By extracting toxins through sweat and circulating nutrients, physical activity is equally important for detoxification, but it’s also a form of self-love. “It expands your sense of possibilities, freeing you to go where you will and to carry burdens lightly,” Minich says. In this age of personalized medicine, Minich encourages patients to focus on the parts of a detox program that they need most, whether it’s diet, exercise, massage, emotional wellbeing or spirituality. She reminds us that the desire and need to cleanse is universal.“Detox is as old as humankind.” Meredith Montgomery publishes Natural Awakenings of Gulf Coast Alabama/Mississippi (HealthyLiving HealthyPlanet.com).


Neurotoxicity, or Brain Toxic by Timothy M. Marshall & Carol L. Henricks

W

e’re exposed to thousands of chemicals every day. Chemicals can invade our body and create a toxic storm. Harmful chemicals can enter the body through food, lotions, shampoos, beauty and hair products, chemicals sprayed to keep new clothing fresh, dryer sheets, air fresheners and other aromatics, aerosolized cleaning fluids and through every oral/ dental product, food and drink. There are 80,000 chemical prod-

ucts that exist now that did not exist 100 years ago. Every chemical that enters our body that is not part of our natural physiology must be dealt with as a foreign substance and be removed. Chemicals such as synthetic colors (red dye 40), artificial sweeteners (aspartame, sucralose) and preservatives (parabens, formaldehyde) are found in thousands of consumer products. A chemical such as formaldehyde—a by-product of the neurotoxic sweetener aspartame—has a particular affinity for the brain, as do many other “fat-soluble” chemicals, because of its high fat concentration (about 60 percent fat).

Harmful chemicals can invade our body and cause chemical-induced brain injury (metabolic encephalopathy) closely resembling physical brain injury (like TBI), with a host of symptoms—depression, anxiety, irritability, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, sleep disturbances and chronic headaches, to name a few—ultimately leading to cell death and neurodegeneration. While we are all exposed to these toxins to varying degrees, deployed military members experience tremendous toxic exposure, which invariably worsens their concussion symptoms. To optimize healing and recovery, it is important to identify and minimize or eliminate these sources of exposure. Employ safe and effective detoxification strategies—for example NAC, heavy metal chelators, sweating, ionic foot baths—that work with the body’s natural healing processes.

extracted from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. Panthethine is the enzyme form of pantothenic acid. It plays a vital role in enhancing the aldehyde dehydrogenase enzyme—for formaldehyde detoxification.

Nutrients That Can Enhance Detoxification by Othon Molina

T

he following nutrients are good to keep in mind when thinking about enhancing detoxification. See a doctor for more details.

Glutathione is the cell’s major protection against free radicals produced by toxins such as aspartame and other additives. It is best used in IV form, although may be in oral form now. Curcumin is for better absorption. Take in coconut milk, the active ingredient of turmeric. It’s an extremely powerful antioxidant, antibiotic, antifungal, enhances detoxification, enhances bile flow, inhibits cancer growth and is a very powerful anti-inflammatory. Vitamin C (as magnesium or Calcium

ascorbate) plays a major role in cell protection against free radicals and stress, protects the nervous system and enhances tissue repair. Milk Thistle is an herb that has been shown to substantially enhance liver detoxification, and is a very powerful antioxidant for all cells. Vitamin B6 plays a major role in protecting against glutamate and aspartate toxicity. People exposed to chemical toxins frequently have low levels of this vitamin. When vitamin B6 is deficient, Taurine is also low. Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is used by the liver for cleansing the system. Indole-3 Carbinol is a natural substance that enhances immune function. It is

Thiamine (Vitamin B1) plays a major role in protecting nerves as well as the brain. It is commonly depleted with pesticide exposure. Magnesium (citrate/malate) plays a major role in cell protection, especially against toxic pollution. It also protects against strokes and heart attacks. Selenium also plays a role in protecting cells from toxins, especially mercury. It plays a major role in protecting against free radicals. N-acetyl L-cysteine (NAC) is a substance that in cells is converted to glutathione. Glutathione is our cells’ major protection against free radicals produced by toxins such as aspartame. In addition, NAC removes mercury. DHA is a component of Omega-3. It plays a vital role in membrane repair and nurturing of the brain.

The Detoxification Lifestyle by Sheila Shea

O

ur health does not stand still; it either improves or degenerates. More people are suffering from comorbidities, or multiple conditions, and detoxification is one of the major ways to heal from these conditions. Detoxification is a releasing of the negative or toxic from the physical, emotional or mental body and developing a positive or life-sustaining body, feeling or thought. The conditions we have are a result of toxins accumulating in our bodies from the environment, air, water, diet, electronics and trauma. We take action and adopt a detoxification lifestyle to heal. We transform cell by cell, thought by thought and feeling by feeling.

A principle of detoxification is to understand the cause of our conditions and take action to remove the causes, according to Mark Hyman, M.D., a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine. Given that our gastrointestinal (GI) system is considered the source of the problem, Campbell-McBride, M.D. writes that the goal is to heal and seal the gut wall and reseed the good microbes. She does this through nutrition and detoxification. Surprisingly, 80 percent of our immune system is in our GI tract, so healing our gut is healing our immune system. Some methods to use for detoxifying are hydration; hydrotherapies; juicing; herbs; oral cleanses of bowel, liver, kidney and parasites; chelation; infrared sauna; exercise; fasting; and intermittent

fasting. Some of the major hydrotherapies are colon hydrotherapy, enemas, coffee implants, detox bathing, mineral and hot springs and sweating. It’s a good idea to cleanse the bowel first, as it makes cleansing more comfortable. Then one can progress to the liver, kidney, parasites and lymph. Bowel cleansing and hydration continue throughout detoxification, as it may reduce “cleansing reactions” such as headaches, rashes, fatigue and bloat, as well as prevent re-absorption of toxins through the gut walls. The direction of the diet is toward higher fat, lower carbohydrate, fermented foods, probiotics and eating “real food”. The direction of detoxification is to be fully who we are and manifest individual greatness. Sheila Shea is Director of the Intestinal Health Institute.

From Detox to Nourishing Spirit by Linda Joy Stone

M

any people feel physically toxic, but neglect to look at their spirit and emotions. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views health as the balanced integration of the body, mind and spirit and our

harmonious interactions with the environment. The emotions and spirit play a vital role in our health. Although detoxing the body is worthwhile, focusing on clearing just the physical body may not be adequate. In TCM, each organ system has an associated emotion. For example, anger and frustration can negatively affect the liver, creating stagnation and constriction. Worry, stress and overthinking can impair the spleen’s digestive function, causing heaviness and lack of mental clarity. A buildup of toxic emotions can be as deleterious as an overindulgence in food, drugs and alcohol. Conscious and appropriate emotional expression is necessary for optimal health, but the body will become unbalanced when any emotion becomes chronically discordant. So, what do we need to detox—which actually means “to dispel poison”? Maybe what’s needed is “disciplined wildness” and beneficial ways to nourish—not only our body, but also our spirit. Laugh, dance and be in harmony with nature. These may be the best medicines to help cultivate joy and our innate wisdom of being. Linda Joy Stone, OMD, L.Ac., combines her 21-year experience of reading the Akashic Records with nearly three decades practicing Chinese Medicine.

Elemental Fashion Get “Fired” Up With Unique Jewelry by Deena Kloss

A

t the age of 19, Julie is already an experienced fashion model. The talented professional model, once scouted by Victoria’s Secret, has a very busy schedule. Besides modeling for various fashion companies, her daily training and workouts make her exhausted. Most of the time she is overwhelmed and wishes she could just sleep without doing anything. One day, her mom, who is also her agent, told her that a company wanted to hire her to model Sara Yo healing jewelry and she had choices for compensation: cash or trading for jewelry pieces at a wholesale price. “I heard that Sara Yo healing jewelry might help you lift your energy level. You should consider a trade deal for the jewelry,” her mom advised her. Julie responded, “Really? I doubt that a piece of jewelry can help me.” However, she decided to try on the jewelry before making her decision. Julie was very excited sitting in front of a table full of beautiful Sara Yo healing jewelry. The bracelet with blue

square shaped stones first caught her eyes. “It is so unique and sparkling,” she said while she put the bracelet on her wrist. “Well, it is very beautiful, but I don’t feel anything.” After trying on a few other pieces, she reached out to a bracelet on the other side of the table. After a few minutes of holding the bracelet comprised of heart shaped Sara Yo healing stones, she jumped off her seat and said, “My God, I can’t believe it! I was so tired before and now I don’t feel tired anymore. It is so strange!” Eventually, Julie, two other models and a photographer, all chose to receive Sara Yo healing jewelry over cash as compensation for their services (see pictures). Many women like Julie feel more motivated and enthusiastic after wearing jewelry comprised of heart shaped Sara

Yo stones. These stones were discovered (and named by) Dr. Hannah Hershoff, M.D. and Ph.D. in a remote area near her hometown in Southeast China. “These stones are made from the mineral Jingdezhen Kaolin formed over millions of years ago. Jingdezhen Kaolin mines have a long history and were reserved for royalty 2,000 years ago,” said Dr. Hershoff. After extensive research, Dr. Hershoff learned that local Kaolin has absorbed rich spiritual energy from the universe over the course of time. In addition, the unique process used in the creation of Sara Yo stones is based on a Chinese ancestral method involving local water, pine trees, and special kilns all contributing to the Five-Element energy. This may or may not be the first time you have heard of Five-Element energy. But, it is important to know that this energy has been used in Chinese medicine to help people overcome illness and emotional issues for thousands

of years. These five elements are Fire, Wood, Earth, Metal and Water and they are understood to be the five aggregates that comprise the world. Energy from the five elements embraces the energetic matrix of the universe and it is said to flow together within us to bring harmony and balance. “The heart shaped Sara Yo stones predominately bring Fire energy,” Hannah said. According to literature, Fire energy is the energy of heat and it is Yang in nature. It is a strong, dominant element that fuels you with ambition, motivation and the ability to take action. “Many people like Julie become fired up and turn into go-getters after connecting with Fire energy from their heart shaped Sara Yo healing jewelry.” Learn more about Sara Yo healing jewelry at MySpiritJewel.com.

Carotenoids have the BRIGHTEST COLOR of all pigments and no other molecule is more healing. Eye health, vision and fertility are restored by eating them and they protect


against sunburns. Egg yolks have 1mg of lutein per yolk to give it that vivid yellow. Spinach has 10x more lutein than egg yolks by weight, however recent science shows the egg was far more bioavailable. This is because carotenoids are fat soluble and made more bioavailable in the presence of oil. Cooked carrots are shown to have greater blood plasma absorption of betacarotene than raw in humans. I suggest both raw and cooked to obtain maximum benefits. RED carotenoids neutralize free radicals 2x faster than Orange and 4x faster than Yellow! There is a hierarchy and RED is best. Lutein (yellow pigment) has 10 double bonds in its chromophore. Betacarotene (orange) has 11 double bonds and Lycopene (pink) has 13 double bonds. Does it surprise that pink with 13 double bonds is a more effective electron donor than orange with 11? RED FOODS are the most profound evolution to the human diet. When Italy began making tomato paste it spawned great thinkers and strong men. Only peppers (cousin of tomato) evolved the deep red carotenoid called, CAPSANTHIN. I think pepper’s carotenoids being the reddest are the most healing. Since learning the importance of RED carotenoids I’ve made Pepper Paste hundreds of times! I have a pepper problem… We give fresh “Primack Pepper Paste” samples to every person who attends Qi Revolution. Unfortunately, people can’t buy it yet, but we show everyone how to make it.

hong Yuan Qigong is an ancient practice that starts with strengthening our lower Dan-tian (energy center). As we build it up, our physical health is improved and our energy level is increased. Our sense of connection to the Earth is opened up and that energy movement solidifies feeling grounded, firm in our stance. The areas of trust and security and the ability to persevere are strengthened, enabling us to be firmly planted on earth. When there is enough energy, or life force, accumulated in the lower Dan-tian, there is an energetic process that sends this life force down the perineum and then up the spine. This energy expels stagnation and blockages, whether physical, energetic, emotional or spiritual. Moving up, the energy opens our heart center. With the heart center open, we start to sense the strong flow that is life and nature. There is an ease that happens in Mark Frighetti meditation that spreads to our daily lives—our heart opens to other human beings and living things. We start to feel what they feel and gain a deep empathy for where they are. Through this process, we gain more compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and others. Mark Frighetti teaches ZY qigong at Desert Milagros, at 3438 N. Country Club, in Tucson, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. every Thursday. Connect at 520-404-8745, QigongMark@yahoo.com or ZYQigongAZ.com.

She recommends doing a “body check-in” to become aware of our physical reaction to related issues, whether it’s going on a reckless spending spree or bracing to ask for a raise.

Don’t Stress About Legal Protection

Rethinking Cancer

mong the things that create stress in the lives of many Americans is that we are faced with a myriad of legal issues on a daily basis. About 57 million full-time working people in this country have experienced at least one significant legal event in the past 12 months, but only 60 percent actually sought the services of a lawyer to help them. A recent survey identified the areas of greatest need as ranging from auto and traffic issues such as traffic tickets and accidents, family issues such as adoption and divorce, and estate planning concerns such as wills and trusts, to estate or inheritance management. Identity theft has been the top consumer complaint filed with the FTC for 15 years straight. The sad part is that victims are spending an exorbitant amount of time and money dealing with it, whilst the criminals are getting smarter—and they’re not going away. To make matters worse, legal problems know no economic boundaries. People from all income levels experience legal issues or events, and many avoid legal help because of cost, access and trust issues. Now, at the touch of a button, a law firm is able to advise people on any personal legal matter without the high hourly costs. Forget about the stress of figuring out which attorney to use—LegalShield will take care of it. Clients can live worryfree as their experienced attorneys focus specifically on queries and provide 24/7 access for covered emergencies.

Eating Vegan on the Road Clever Ways to Eat Healthy Anywhere by Judith Fertig

T

raveling can be tricky for those trying to eat a plant-based diet, especially on long stretches of highway. More than 33 percent of Americans, or 100 million-plus people, are eating vegan/vegetarian meals more often, even if they do not adhere to a strict plant-based lifestyle, concluded a 2011 Harris Interactive study com-

missioned by the Vegetarian Resource Group. Here is what the discerning traveler can do when hunger strikes. Start by looking for vegan pit stops before you go. Identify a plant-friendly restaurant group, such as Dr. Andrew Weil’s True Food Kitchen (now in 12 states), and then Google for their locations. Smartphone apps such as Finding Vegan and Happy Cow help point the way to vegan-friendly restaurants around the world. This month, Natural Awakenings asked three savvy travelers how they manage plant-based eating wherever they go. For Dustin Harder, eating well on the road is a matter of research and preparation. He is the New York City-based chef/host of the online program The Vegan Roadie, with 100 U.S. restaurant visits and counting and now seeking crowdfunding for its third season, set in Italy. Harder has learned to investigate his dining options ahead

of time, and always packs a travel-size, high-speed blender, lots of trail mix and his favorite condiments of sriracha (bottled hot sauce) and nutritional yeast. “You can locate great vegan restaurants in surprising places if you search online before you travel,” he says, listing Viva Vegeria and La Botanica, in San Antonio, Texas, and The Red Fern, in Rochester, New York, among his finds. Where vegan restaurants are scarce, he turns to plant-based options at Chipotle Mexican Grill and Panera Bread. His DIY hotel-room cuisine favorites are a Hotel Smoothie, Banushi (banana sushi) and Pizzadilla, a cross between a pizza and a quesadilla, “cooked” in aluminum foil using a hotel iron and ironing board. Matt Frazier, a runner and co-author of the No Meat Athlete Cookbook, recently went on the road for a selffunded book tour. Not only had he left his high-powered blender back home with his family in Asheville, North Carolina, he was on a tight budget. “The trick that has helped me not just survive, but thrive on the road is eating fresher, more whole and more raw,” he says. He recommends filling up on kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, nuts and seeds, berries, beans, onions and mushrooms. Lindsay S. Nixon, author of The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living and related cookbooks, has traveled from her home in Los Angeles across the country and around the world, finding plant-based foods wherever she goes. “Almost every city has a Thai or Italian restaurant where you should be able to find something on the menu or adapt a dish to stick with plants,” she says. “You might have to get a little creative. I once asked for salsa and a plain, baked potato; not a bad combo, as it turns out.” Wherever we find ourselves, we can still find healthy ways to eat.

Nut butter of choice Bananas (not overripe; firm enough to hold toppings) Blueberries Pomegranate seeds or strawberries, cut into slivers Raw nuts of choice, crumbled, crushed or ground up Peel the banana. Spread with a layer of nut butter to look like a sushi roll. Place blueberries in a line down the middle lengthwise, about an inch apart. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds or strawberry slivers and top with raw nut crumble. Slice into pieces the size of sushi roll pieces. Recipes courtesy of VeganRoadie.com.

Preheat hotel or travel iron; the linen setting works well. While the iron is preheating, place tortilla on a square of aluminum foil large enough to enclose the tortilla. Sprinkle half the cheese on one half of the tortilla, top with peppers and onions, spoon over the marinara and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Fold the other half over the toppings, and then fold the foil over the entire Pizzadilla, completely closing the edges of the foil. Place the foil packet on the ironing board and the iron on the foil packet. Iron it out to flatten slightly and then leave iron on the foil packet for 2 minutes, flip and repeat. Open foil, cut the Pizzadilla in half and it’s ready to eat. July 2017

Four Reasons to Break a Sweat The Fast Path to Flushing Toxins by Deanna Minich

D

octors, health experts and fitness gurus tell us that we should break a sweat every day—and for good reason. Sweat not only activates a host of benefits tied to healthboosting exercise, perspiring itself is curative. Whether sitting in a sauna, walking on a warm day or working out, sweating is a necessary bodily function with powerful healing effects. By clearing out a range of toxins, sweat plays an essential role in the body’s natural detoxifying function. Here are some of the toxins it helps eliminate:

Tucson

natural awakenings

Persistent organic pollutants (solvents, fumigants and insecticides): A clinical study of

20 participants published in BioMed Research International found that their sweat samples contained a range of toxins, including pesticides DDT/DDE, endosulfan, methoxychlor and endrin. Nearly all parent compounds of these pesticides were evident, demonstrating that sweating is an effective way of excreting and diminishing the body’s toxic burden. One sweat sample contained some pesticides not present in the subject’s blood or urine samples, suggesting that some pesticides are only mobilized and eliminated through sweating.

Phthalate (plasticizer): Phthalate, found in plastic products, is also removed through sweat. Research published in the Scientific World Journal evaluated blood, sweat and urine samples from 20 individuals and discovered that all of them contained the common mono2-ethylhexyl phthalate (MEHP). The concentrations of this toxin in sweat were more than twice as high as those in the urine, showing that sweating may be the best way of


ridding the body of this endocrine-disrupting compound.

3

Heavy metals: Another study of 20 patients reported in the Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology found that subjects’ sweat contained about 24 times more cadmium, 19 times more nickel, 16 times more lead and almost three times more aluminum than their urine. Overall, sweat proved more effective than urine at removing 14 of the 18 heavy metals studied. It also contained and, therefore, expelled larger quantities of 16 of the 18 metals than the blood samples did. Of all the metals, aluminum was found at the highest concentrations in sweat, with zinc, copper and nickel also occurring at relatively high levels.

4

Bisphenol A (BPA): Researchers reporting in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health examined the blood, urine and sweat of 20 participants for BPA, an endocrine-disrupting toxin found in canned foods, plastic water bottles and other items. Of the 20 sweat samples collected, 16 contained BPA, while only 14 urine and 2 blood samples tested positive for the toxin. This reveals that sweat is the most effective way of removing BPA build-up in the body; just as vital, it demonstrates that testing blood or urine for toxicity levels may not present the whole picture.

A wide range of activities, including exercising and engaging in sports, can help us break a sweat. A low-impact option is spending time in a sauna. Notably, in a focused

study, the sweat from an infrared sauna expelled more bismuth, cadmium, chromium, mercury and uranium than that produced by a steam sauna. The steam sauna caused higher levels of arsenic, aluminum, cobalt, copper, manganese, nickel, lead, tin, thallium and zinc to be excreted (Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology). Hydration is essential in maximizing all these health benefits. Failure to hydrate properly during and after sweating can lead to other health problems. An easy rehydration practice is to step on the scales right before and after sweating; the weight lost is the optimum amount of water to drink afterwards (Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine). For reference, one pound of water is slightly less than a one-half liter. Sweat contains minerals essential for optimal functioning of the whole body. Following excessive sweating, it’s important to replace the minerals lost, especially zinc, copper, selenium, chromium and potassium. Coconut water is a good source of potassium; nuts, seafood, whole grains and legumes generally contain relatively high doses of zinc, copper, selenium and chromium. The next time the couch and air conditioning beckon, think of all the “sweaty” benefits about to be sacrificed. Breaking a sweat might seem like an effort, but it keeps internal detox systems healthy and optimally functioning.

at Allen, author of the words above, lived her life through many roles. She was an art student, a teacher, an art therapist, a wife, mother and an artist. Her book, Art as a Way of Knowing, was written years ago, but is a perfect mirror and introduction to Carrie Seid, studio artist and Creativity Coach. Born and raised in the Chicago area, Seid has lived in Tucson, wearing several hats, for the past 16 years. Like Allen, Seid has been an art student, teacher, wife, mother, practicing artist and also works in the arena of arts and healing as a Creativity Coach. Trained as a textile designer, the works she is most known for are luminous sculptural forms that include gauzey fabrics stretched and layered over rigid, box-like, illuminated structures. Her work has been shown and collected through galleries and museums around the country. In addition to her practice as a studio artist, Seid serves 40

Can you describe how life unfolded to bring you from personal art-making to your current passion as a Creativity Coach? That process has evolved over the past decades for me. I started out at Rhode Island School of Design as a textile major because it seemed like a practical way to earn a living doing what I loved. After graduating with a BFA, I went to work in New York in textile design. Much to my surprise, I found the work too way too repetitive and knew I could do more with my creativity. I ended up leaving the textile design industry to design, create and sell paper jewelry. I travelled the country selling my work in high-end craft shows for the next three years. During that period, I took a three-week workshop called Experimental Textiles. There, I met a key instructor who convinced me to return to school to pursue an MFA. At his urging, I applied and was accepted to The Cranbrook Academy of Art, where I met my mentor-teacher, Gerhardt Knodel. Going to school in a monastic-like rural setting in Michigan with extraordinary instructors and fellow students opened my mind to a world of creative possibilities. I developed the art form I continue to practice while studying at Cranbrook. Were there areas or experiences related to art-making as healing during those Cranbrook years? Very much so. On the interpersonal level, I was in transition, having ended a long-term relationship just before entering grad school. On the intrapersonal level, at age 28, I had a subtle awareness that there was a key part of myself not being expressed yet, either in my life or my art work. It felt like somehow, my training as a designer had “boxed me in”. I sensed that I was living from a place of personal smallness and that something larger yearned for expression. The healing I sought was related to needing to expand both the physical area my artwork covered, and to express with a more authentic voice. What followed the grad school years? Teaching! I spent the next 19 years teaching art in a variety of settings, including the University of Arizona. Teaching fed my spirit and inspired my own

Why did you become an artist? As a teen, I gravitated towards doing what I felt most affinity for—things I felt compelled to stay up all night doing.

During those years, I began to notice how often my attention went from focusing on the work my students were creating to the process they were going through in order to make the work.

feeling anxious about. Next, regardless of the “what” that conversation yields, I make the choice to keep moving. What that means is that if I just can’t connect with what I am working on, I shift gears and work on something else. I might sort beads or do some other type of minor studio prep work in order to stay on the train, so to speak. The point is to choose to keep a flow going as opposed

So, in essence, the Creativity Coaching you now do evolved from your work as a teacher? Absolutely. I realized that inner barriers were responsible for blocking many people in related ways, regardless of the projects they were doing. Can you address how teaching and coaching are similar as well as different? For me, teaching was primarily about directing students to make inquiries about the outer world, whereas coaching is about facilitating people to explore and expand inner life lessons as the key to authentic expression. Teaching and coaching intersect in that both include accessing and tapping into the collective unconscious and learning to trust what we encounter there. Do you have any general words of wisdom/guidance to share about how to address being stuck creatively? In my experience as a studio artist and as a coach, I identify feeling “stuck” with anxiety. When I hit a stuck place in my own art making, I do two things. First, I step back to ask myself what I am

to stopping the momentum. Most often, I find that the parallel involvement with materials brings me back to the work I felt stuck with in a new way. How do you see your creative work serving as a healing tool for both yourself and the community at large? I feel we are living in consequential times. At this particular moment, each and every one of us can make the choice to stretch towards living from our most authentic selves. Art-making is one of the many ways a person can explore and build connection with a sense of self-authority. Being in touch with, claiming and standing up for the power and truth we experience is critical for the future. I believe that as each person is increasingly able to engage in courageous, authentic expression, we will also be able to live more fully “in service” to each other at all times. Healing in the present from this place of connection to our authentic selves allows us to keep each other afloat, to support each other, to push forward and to truly see each other and what our future world needs.

Dogs Need Detoxing Too

Vitamin C: berries, citrus, red bell peppers (or berry powder supplements; one-half teaspoon per 25 pounds of weight)

10

Ways to Detox Your Dog

by Patricia Jordan

Y

Good nutrient sources to add to doggie meals include:

Vitamin A: liver, yellow and orange fruits and vegetables, dark leafy greens, eggs

Vitamin E: grains, seeds and their oils, wheat germ oil Vitamin D: liver, eggs, oily fish like sardines, mackerel, salmon B vitamins: liver, venison (or moringa leaf powder supplement, one-half teaspoon per 25 pounds) Zinc: red meat, poultry Magnesium: dark leafy greens, seeds, fish Selenium: oily fish, grass-fed beef and beef liver, free-range chicken, egg Turmeric: a powerful supplement to help treat and prevent gene damage caused by heavy metals and glyphosate (one-eighth to one-quarter teaspoon per 10 pounds of body weight per day, combined with a healthy fat like coconut oil and some freshly ground black pepper for better absorption).

ou know that mercury is bad for people. John Moore, a prominent 20th-century mercury and dental health researcher, regarded mercury as a ubiquitous contaminant of everything from plastics to concrete and medicine. But what about your dog? Pets also routinely encounter mercury and other toxic metals like aluminum and lead. For humans, eating whole, organic and even biodynamic food has become imperative to avoid heavy metals. That’s also true for canines. A species-appropriate raw diet including veggies is often recommended. And any raw meaty bones should be the joints and not the long bones unless purchased from a company that tests for heavy metals. Here are some preventive and remedial steps.

2 3

Provide clean, filtered water. Mountain spring water is ideal.

Boost nutrients. Nutrient deficiencies

that can arise in conjunction with mercury poisoning include antioxidant vitamins A, C, E and vitamin D, plus the complex of B vitamins, zinc, magnesium and selenium. These also help treat potential post-vaccination immunity issues.

Heal leaky gut first. Like humans, pets with leaky gut will have food allergies. Remove causes like vaccines and processed foods; support the liver; rebalance with prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes; replenish with a healthy whole foods diet, along with aloe, slippery elm and marshmallow root; and restore with homeopathic remedies. Follow up with fermented veggies as part of the diet. Consult a naturopathic veterinarian for treatment.


4 5

Prevent and treat candida. Avoid aggravating

Monika Wisniewska/Shutterstock.com

candida as it can release 60-plus toxic substances, including ethanols and the heavy metals it eats. Eliminate all carbs, sugar and grains from the dog’s diet.

Greens, minerals and herbs. The use of juvenile

grasses is detoxifying and provides necessary magnesium during a detox. Sea vegetables can supply calcium, iodine and trace minerals. Herbs like curcumin, ginger and cayenne are potent antioxidants; ginger and turmeric help with DNA repair. Nutrients from green leafy vegetables like spinach and broccoli can enter cells and reduce inflammation; broccoli sprouts also apply, with the most effective delivery method via a concentrated powder. Blend or lightly steam veggies to enhance digestion, then add one tablespoon for smaller dogs, or three to four for larger dogs.

6 7

No fake food or vitamins. Be wary of synthetic

vitamins. Whole foods may be properly supplemented with gentle chelators like open cell wall chlorella and super foods like spirulina.

Probiotics plus. Probiotics help restore healthy gut bac-

teria, repair genes, synthesize nutrients and help remove mercury from the body. Cultivating a gut garden of beneficial bugs boosts health. Add a teaspoon or two of kefir or fermented veggies to the dinner of small dogs, up to a tablespoon or two for larger animals. A high-quality refrigerated probiotic supplement is an option; if it’s made for animals, follow the package directions; for human products, assume the dose is for a 150-pound person and adjust for the dog’s weight. Amino acids, the primary building blocks of proteins, are integral to detoxification; feeding a dog a variety of meats, along with fish and eggs, will provide these. Digestive enzymes also support health; a supplement should include many kinds. Cellulase, a plant enzyme that helps digest plant material, also extracts mercury, which destroys naturally occurring enzymes.

8

Plan meals with prebiotics. Prebiotics occur naturally

in common high-fiber foods including cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach. Carrots, beets and spirulina also benefit the gut. Establishing a healthy gut restores the body’s natural detoxification function, plus its ability to assimilate critical nutrients. Add a teaspoon or two for small dogs; one to three tablespoons for larger dogs.

9

Raw food for detox. Discard commercially processed

foods and chemical synthetic vitamins. Go for raw and whole foods, add fermented foods and supplement intelligently with whole food-based supplements. Organic sources, grass-fed animals and even biodynamic food sources are ideal.

10

Organ meats. A dog should have organ meats from clean animals at least once a week or as 10 percent of its diet.

As the body detoxifies, symptoms and discharges may occur. These are less common for dogs with raw, speciesappropriate diets and minimal vaccinations. Visible results include old dogs displaying more energy and sharper cognitive function and awareness. Eyes are clearer. Fatty tissues shrink down, coats fill out and become shinier and skin becomes healthier. As the largest organ, skin reflects the state of the immune system as a whole. A concentrated detox to overturn health issues relies on doctor protocols and individualized treatment. An everyday gentle detox generally keeps pets healthier.
