ave you ever stood on the edge of a lake and watched the patterns that waves make as they crisscross each other? If you watch long enough, the different patterns begin to sort themselves out in your mind and you see the sources of the waves, as well as their reflections from the shore. Waves are unique, they can pass through each other, amplify each other, or even cancel each other out. Waves are all around us in the form of light, sound, infrared, and countless other bands of unlabeled spectral energy. Science and technology take great leaps when we identify, label, and manipulate a previously untapped frequency spectrum. Think about how X-Rays and ultrasound have transformed western medicine. Holistic medicine makes use of both light and sound energies to enhance mind, body, and spirit. Energy medicine is at the heart of both homeopathy and acupuncture. Despite all of the advances in vibrational medicine, we live in a world where the predominant mainstream medical model is based on particles (atoms) not waves (energies). Take a prescribed measured dosage of a drug and you are likely to exhibit known healing effects. Take the same prescribed dosage of a sugar pill and quite often you will also exhibit the expected healing effects. The “placebo effect” is so powerful that drug-makers now struggle to “beat” the placebo in drug trials—you see it’s not that the drug doesn’t work well enough—it’s that the sugar pill works too well! When holistic medical approaches discover a healing remedy, medical authorities often make it known that they don’t approve. Common sense tells us that taking and mixing medical drugs is best done under a doctor’s supervision. However, ordinary lifestyle choices like how to exercise and how many calories to consume are also being corralled by the medical establishment, who feel confident to tell you that it is dangerous to live on a 500calorie diet without doctor supervision! There may be dangerous habits, but I can tell you with obesity at an all-time high, any movement towards eating less should be applauded, not criticized. I hope you can learn to cut through the misinformation and use your own intuition to find holistic approaches and practitioners that will guide and support you in your lifestyle choices.

ometimes in life we are given opportunities to overcome tremendous obstacles. I often think that when we are thrown a curve ball that our best move is to hit a home run. It is at these times that we are able to truly show what kind of people we are. Do we give up and quit or do we find a creative solution to our difficulties? Some of my favorite memories of my father are how he always managed to find the most amazing solutions to life’s challenges. He never asked why something was happening, but always moved directly into his problem-solving mode. His creative solutions never ceased to amaze me. I recently saw the movie “Unstoppable”, which was based on a true story of how three men were instrumental in stopping a runaway train, containing hazardous chemicals. This exciting film demonstrated the power of the human spirit to overcome incredible difficulties in a positive, heroic way. I left the theatre feeling so inspired by this movie, which would have seemed to be farfetched if it was not based on true events. This is my favorite type of film—the ones that wouldn’t be believable if they were not inspired by real events. Tony and I recently had the experience of having to overcome the ice and snow to hold the Wellness Expo in Grapevine. We were impressed by the dedication and tenacity of our exhibitors and speakers, who were able to get themselves to this event. We were also grateful to the wonderful attendees, who came to the show. It really helped with the cabin fever many people experienced during this time, returned our lives to normalcy and got people moving forward in a positive way. After the event, Tony told me how he felt that he had really grown as a person. I felt the same way. Often it is in overcoming our obstacles that we are able to stretch ourselves and grow. How much have you learned from the things that have come easily to you? We hope you will join us for the April 16-17 Wellness Expo in Addison and the June 25-26 Wellness Expo in Grapevine. Here you will find inspiration, solutions to life’s challenges, and an opportunity to grow. We are honored and gratified to be able to produce this event with such a fine group of professionals, dedicated to doing their best work in all kinds of circumstances. We are not expecting any more ice and snow-just a fabulous event with incredible people. We hope you will be one of them. Love & Light, Felicia Weiss


Spring 2011

Holistic Forum How do I become more passionate and joyful? We’re so easily distracted by technology and the business of life that we are becoming less and less in touch with our bodies. Bioenergetics helps us to be aware of our bodies, our breathing, our grounding so that we can make more conscious choices about what we want in our lives as well as what we don’t want.

What is Fascial Integrative Therapy? This therapy recognizes the importance of the integration of the fascial and CranioSacral systems and works to gently release restrictions that may be causing pain, or problems in the immune, nervous, digestive, endocrine or other body systems. Using a very light touch the therapist works to correct the origin of the pain. It has been used to successfully correct infertility, scoliosis, plantar fasciitis, ADD/ADHD, carpal tunnel, �bromyalgia, sports injuries, arthritis, and pain in any area of the body, including migraines. Frankie Burget is a licensed Occupational Therapist and Fellow with the American College of Wellness who has practiced in the DFW area for over 20 years. She has extensive training including Barnes Myofascial Release Centers and Upledger Institute. You may view her curriculum vitae on the About Us page of her website, Please contact her at 817571-8135 or Please see bodywork section for more information. What is a naturopathic doctor? Doctors of naturopathic medicine (NMDs) are trained as primary care physicians and have attended a four-year naturopathic medical school. Their training is based on the same basic science and clinical biomedical instruction as allopathic medicine (MD); however, natural medicines are emphasized. This rigorous medical training differentiates NMDs from other self-taught alternative practitioners. Naturopathic doctors assist patients by using integrative and holistic modalities such as nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and counseling. This approach has proven successful in helping both chronic and acute conditions. To determine if a doctor is trained and licensed as an NMD, go to or Dr. Kimberly Wilson, NMD, Vice President of the Texas Association of Naturopathic Physicians and a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physician, sees patients at Innovations Wellness Center, 6545 Preston Rd., Plano, TX, and 4230 Avondale Ave., Dallas, TX (972) 608-0100.

What is Iridology and how can it help me? It has been said that the eye is the mirror of the soul, and that it discloses the different mental and physical conditions of the body; we generally speak of the ‘vivid clear eye’ of the well person, of the ‘anguishing, glaring eye’ of the consumptive; of the ‘broken eye’ of the dead-sick. Various nervous diseases are disclosed by the decreased mobility of the pupil; frequent disturbances of the sight point to diseases of the kidneys (diabetes), as does also the falling out of the eye-lashes. By analyzing the iris of the eye, it is possible to determine the condition of your body by re�ex markings found in the corresponding �bers of the iris. Iridology analyzes the iris of the eye to determine the cause of your ill health, in what state it is in, how it arrived there, how to free your body of it, and most of all, when you have freed it. To help you �nd out the root of your health problem call Iridologist, Edna Craven, DC, BCNP, BCI at 972-256-0004 / (over 30 yrs. experience). 10% discount with this ad. Mind Chatter, What is it? And where does it come from? Mind chatter is thoughts and emotions that we pick up from others. Programs as they are called get passed down through generations. Many were implanted by the beliefs and rules of parents, society and sometimes by a GHOST. Those pesky programs are located and deleted through a series of clearings that utilizes a universal search engine. It’s like your hard drive, i.e. your mind, gets rebooted so we are at the wheel along with GOD instead of Grandma Rose. And, yes, the ghost can be removed too.

Why is it important to receive Thai Massage from a certi�ed master level practitioner? Finding a practitioner who has studied extensively the art of Thai Massage assures that you will receive the most optimum experience during a session. As a master level practitioner with over 8 years experience, I have chosen to specialize in Thai Massage. Each session is unique and matched with how your body is doing/feeling/being that day. I have trained in the US, Thailand, and England where I learned techniques being created worldwide and utilized by master level Thai Massage therapists. I would be honored to share with you my joy and passion for this amazing bodywork.

What is HCG and how is it the key to weight loss? HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin and is a glycoprotein hormone. The late Dr. A.T.W. Simeons discovered that HCG allows almost unlimited hypothalamic banking capacity so that fat deposits are not formed. By taking HCG and restricting oneself to a very low calorie diet, a person is able to access their fat stores and experience rapid weight loss of about 1/2 to 1 pound/day. The HCG dramatically reduces a person’s feelings of hunger, making it easier to feel comfortable with this reduced caloric intake. Today the HCG is available in homeopathic form, making it an easy, effective, and inexpensive approach to weight management.

Suzanne Miller is a LMT and Kripalu Yoga Teacher. She can be reached at 972-319-3661.

Felicia Weiss, Ph.D. is co-owner of Shifting Frequencies, which carries the HCG homeopathic drops. For more information or to order the HCG drops, visit: or call: 972-378-1211.

Integrative Cancer Care Using Insulin Potentiation Low Dose Chemotherapy as Part of a Holistic Treatment Plan by Constantine A. Kotsanis, M.D. Cancer: A Result of the Perfect Storm Cancer is a disease of the immune system that deserves special attention. The literature cites no less than 100 reasons for the cause of cancer. However, the most profound causes are related to lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise and life events such as job and relationship stress. Additionally, environmental factors also play a key role in creating the perfect storm for cancer as for all disease. When addressed, these same environmental factors (like clean food, air and water) can help aid in recovery. I foresee in the near future that most, if not all, diseases will have a cure, because future health professionals will combine the understanding of solid scientific principles in nutrition, detoxification, biochemistry, biophysics and psychology to synthesize the solution to conquering cancer. The pieces of the answer are out there, but nobody has connected all the dots. Many years from now we will look back on this period in medical history and wonder why it took so long to synthesize the answer for cancer. Future doctors will have depth of knowledge in all disciplines of medicine. Understanding of Western Medicine, Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Naturopathy, Structural Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Functional Dentistry and Nutrition may supersede pharmaceutical medicine. However, this only covers the medical side of things. It is crucial that the physician studies and understands the dynamics of the patient's relationship to his/her family, the dynamics of friends, the dynamics of the working environment and the patient's commitment and financial ability to complete recommended treatments. In

the comprehensive cancer care model, the willingness of everyone involved with the patient is a factor in survival rate. I have seen many situations where friends and relatives impose their will on a patient rather than allowing the patient to choose their own treatments. Insulin Potentiation Low Dose Chemotherapy (IPT or IPTLD) is an interesting bridge between mainstream conventional chemotherapy and complementary medicine. IPT, which was invented in Mexico over 70 years ago, uses insulin in the beginning of a chemotherapy infusion as a biological response modifier. Insulin is infused in the beginning of treatment and the blood sugar is lowered to the therapeutic moment. Cancer cells need sugar to make energy and they have 16 times more insulin receptors than normal cells. Therefore IPT uses the cancer cell's weakness of more readily absorbing insulin to target the cancer cell for destruction. The insulin receptors help the cancer cell absorb more of the chemotherapeutic agents. Therefore less of the chemo is needed (10% to 25% of the usual dose) in order to achieve cancer cell death. With the normal cells the opposite is true. The normal, stronger cells are less affected by the chemo, thus minimizing symptoms such as nausea, hair loss, blood cell effects and loss of appetite. Doctors that perform this type of therapy can be found on the web site This web site, operated by the Best Answer for Cancer Foundation in Austin, TX, a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization, was founded by a patient survivor in 2005. Annie Brandt, the founder and executive director, has been cancer-free for ten years now and has made it her life's work to bring awareness to IPT, as well as to the

whole host of treatments and therapies that can be used in a comprehensive program to beat cancer. She hosts an annual meeting where integrative practitioners of all stripes come to share their latest treatment information. The foundation is also sponsoring an FDA registered Quality of Life Study, which is under way currently at Kotsanis Institute in Grapevine, TX.

THE ODYSSEY OF A CANCER PATIENT: The Seven Parameters As a cancer patient one must consider at least seven parameters before seeking out IPT or other integrative therapies. 1. One must understand the advantages and disadvantages of IPT therapies. The co-morbidities (conditions that exist concurrent to the cancer) usually include dental problems with multiple mercury fillings and problematic root canals. Many patients have had several severe infections in their history for which they may have had multiple rounds of antibiotics. This may have disrupted normal digestive ecology creating a situation that bred fungal infections For example one recent patient had severe recurring episodes of tonsillitis and was placed on many antibiotics for a great length of time prior to tonsillectomy. Blood tests done elsewhere also showed toxicity to aluminum. This patient's treatment with IPT although very successful initially, failed to provide a long term solution because once the patient achieved remission she was under the impression that no further attention to the cancer was necessary. In fact people with cancer need to understand that once you are diagnosed with this disease, you must follow medically supervised treatments and implement lifestyle and dietary changes for life.

2. Patients must choose a physician that they like. Just remember, a good physician will offer you appropriate therapy, a great physician will serve you for life! 3. One must dedicate the time needed to get healthy and stay healthy; this is a lifelong commitment. An aggressive antioxidant program (pH and ORP manipulations), along with correction of hormone dysfunctions and correction of emotional stressors can be highly beneficial. For the emotional component we refer to integrative practitioners who are able to address emotional issues using various forms of energetic medicine and counseling. 4. One must make permanent changes in nutrition for life under the supervision of your IPT physician or a Clinical Nutritionist. The patient may have to make drastic changes to diet, including eliminating almost all sugar intake. A supportive spouse and family should encourage the patient to follow their heart's desire to conquer their disease. Patients usually engage by reading books about natural healing. I recommend every person read “The China Study by Campbell�. This completely changes most people's mind about life and nutrition. Although most patients do not go 100% raw vegan, eliminating all non-organic foods and most animal food products and sugars can make a dramatic difference. Most patients see that this change has made a significant improvement in their health. 5. One must accept the recommended IPT therapies without being stressed out of their mind as to "why do I have to change my ways at this stage of my life." 6. One must understand the financial implications involved with any long term therapies, including IPT, before getting started. Too often I see patients that stop medically supervised treatments because of financial distress. As soon as they begin to feel better, some patients take it upon themselves to continue home treatments without medical supervision; usually this approach can be dangerous and bring

Spring 2011 23

a lot of undesirable complications. Regular check ups, blood work and imaging is a must. 7. Last but not least, one must aggressively explore all treatment options for life! Constantine Kotsanis, M.D. is one of the early U.S. physicians to embrace Integrative Cancer Therapies. Introduced to IPT therapy in 2001, he trained with Dr. Perez Garcia. Dr. Kotsanis is a certified IPT/IPTLD™ instructor. You can reach Dr. Kotsanis at the Kotsanis Institute at: metro 817-481-6342.

HCG has been called a miracle weight-loss formula. For the first time, an affordable homeopathic remedy, formulated to free the body of stubborn fat is now available to you in easy-to-use drops. I am a mother of 2 young boys ages 3 and 1. Before I had my first child I was in a size 8 - 10. After I gave birth, I was in a size 16. And after I had my second child I was a size 18. I tried other diets while exercising and would not lose much weight. I decided to try the HCG diet because I needed to keep up with my boys. Also, I had little time to exercise while dieting. This protocol provided me a solution. I like this diet so much for the fact that it’s easy and I had instant gratification. Morning after morning, I saw less pounds and/or inches. I never felt hungry on this diet. I prepared all my food for the week on Sundays; therefore, my meals were always ready when it was time for me to eat. And I didn’t have to worry about cooking a meal for my family and a meal for myself every night. I thought participating in special

occasions, like award shows, birthday parties, the pumpkin patch, etc. would cause a problem for me. I found there was always a solution. I would either munch on an apple, pass on the food, or I would go to the chief personally and tell him to make me a shrimp soup with spinach, no sugar, oil, and starches. I would make this soup at home as well. It is so fulfilling! Again, I was never hungry on this diet. Now, that I am at the end of the very low calorie diet, I have lost over 26 pounds in 38 days. I feel wonderful, have more energy, and I am still not hungry. I can now run in the park with my boys. I am looking forward to shopping for new clothes. If I can do it with 2 little boys and a husband to keep up with, anyone can. —Y.G.

I weighed 150 lbs. when I started the HCG diet and now I weigh 133 lbs. I wore size 10 pants and now I wear size 6. I lost the weight without having to go to the gym. I eat healthier and make better choices when I go out to eat. Weighing myself daily helped me see what made me gain weight. I gain weight when I eat bread and other food that has wheat in it. If I eat it then I know I will weigh a little more the next day. I had tried other diets but they didn’t work. I lost 6 lbs on one diet but then I gained it back. Felicia and Tony have been helpful with answering any questions that I have about the drops and the diet.

I love the HCG and have lost 38 pounds. I have my husband on it and he has lost 20 pounds. People I work with see how much I have lost and they are getting on it, too. I can get into clothes that I had 20 years ago. I have also gotten compliments on how good I look and have given your web site out to several people all over. —R.M.

Acupuncture for Asthma


sthma, a chronic disease of the lungs, affects an estimated 300 million people around the world. Although it is considered a treatable disease with proper medication, it still claims over 3,000 deaths each year in the U.S. alone. It is also one of the most common diseases for which patients turn to alternative therapies, such as

acupuncture, for treatment and relief. Like all methods in Oriental medicine, acupuncture utilizes a holistic approach wherein treatment is focused on achieving overall health and well-being in order to remove the troublesome symptoms associated with asthma. In traditional Chinese medicine, asthma is considered not just a disorder of the lungs but also of the kidneys and the stomach. This explains why the acupoints that correspond to the treatment of asthma are located along the lung, kidney, and stomach meridians. Acupoints along the bladder meridian are also treated since bladder function is considered important for the overall health of the body’s organs. Acupuncture is widely used as a preventative medicine technique, and as such, is most effective when used to treat initial attacks or mild bouts of asthma. The disease is one of 40 considered by the World Health Organization (WHO) that may benefit from acupuncture. One study conducted by the University of Vienna Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care showed that at least 70% of the patients suffering from

asthma reported improvement after undergoing regular acupuncture treatment for a span of 10 weeks. Another study, conducted in Kaifeng City’s Department of Acupuncture in the Second Municipal People’s Hospital in Henan, China, involved 192 patients with bronchial asthma. All patients were treated with acupuncture and results showed significant improvement in over 75% of patients. Clinical remission also reduced and the majority of patients reported immediate relief post-treatment. While asthma symptoms can range from very slight to severe depending on the individual, there are several medical treatment options available for patients suffering from asthma. In addition to conventional medical modalities, acupuncture and other alternative therapies are becoming increasingly popular today as effective means for treating chronic conditions including asthma.

Your Spring Stars by Cynthia Novak


elcome tempestuous spring: Goodbye unpredictable winter. The fast-moving personal planets pull away from Neptune, the mysterious planet of illumination or confusion; then they cross Uranus, the planet of revolution and freedom. Uranus is unpredictable. The only thing we can count on is the unexpected. Here in Texas spring began in February and as I write this, the gift of spring is still upon us. I heard it said that in Texas spring can be short as a whisker. That is true. Summer heat lands in May and lingers through September. We'll take this gift because it will change. Like a political demonstration under a tyrannical ruler, a spring breeze and hope for rain can turn into a deadly tornado. The planets gather in fruitful lunar mansions this spring. Each New Moon plants the seed for an abundant future and reminds us that it takes dedication, skill and sometimes daring to produce and protect the harvest. We the People of the world are part of nature. We are mighty in our own eyes and yet still vulnerable to mortality. That sounds ominous, but it is merely reverence. This spring we are surrounded with change and opportunity. There is no need to minimize its greatness. Jupiter is the planet of luck, law, theatre and learning. Jupiter remains unusually strong through April and though he moves into the constellation Aries in May in the Vedic system, Jupiter is still good for prosperity. I had no idea that the mix of Jupiter with high tech Uranus would be a series of revolutions organized on the social networking international stage. Uranus is innately unpredictable.

April: The first week of April is eventful and productive. Jupiter pulls away from Saturn's opposing grasp. Money flows again. The Market continues to edge up: a jump up and a dive down...but optimism reigns and it continues to rise. Saturn reveals those in need. Jupiter is compelled to tell their stories. The legislature must balance resources with need and future growth. It's rather daunting. Each New Moon since January, we see a great deal of need opposed by Saturn's tight budget. It's the nature of things, but nature is all about life and death. Like several years of drought, it is hard to plant when seed and soil are drained. However, nature is tenacious and hopeful and will try again. Survival depends upon it. As April begins, things are starting to move...but it takes 10 days to believe it....maybe more. Gas prices should slowly come down by mid-May. It looks treacherous in Libya and 7 other Arab nations, but it is the beginning of a new cycle. Jupiter opposes Saturn exactly for the final time this month. These planets of economic reconstruction move slowly and remind us that hope requires diligence and that tenacity eventually pays off for those who balance it with hope. Jupiter is big ideas and Saturn is the gritty work of holding on until we find a way. April has a most exciting New Moon on the 3rd. Mercury, the planet of communication and transportation, appeared to stop in the heavens just before the New Moon. This is actually good for mental clarity. Mercury is at the very last degree of the lunar mansion Revati: think of Revati as where the end and the beginning are one. Mercury appears

to stand still. Slowly he will move backward as Jupiter, the optimist, moves forward. Which way will the 8 nations go? In some respect, our own lives are in a state of change. Retrograde Mercury: April 3rd until April 25th is a time to reflect and review. Back up your files and simplify your schedule. It's great for meditation and the time voted most likely for your subconscious mind to flush your schedule. Confirm that meeting and be brief. Everyone wants a little quiet time. If you are in sales, folks want peace, quiet and simplicity. Mars and Uranus are just minutes apart on April 3rd. If you feel plugged into a collective power surge, you are not alone. The Sun (think life-force or ego) has pulled away from Mars. Aggression and war are part of Mars' domain...but so is service. Mars with Uranus is associated with accidents. Why? Because we are distracted and irritated or outright mad. Breathe deeply, focus and do not walk and talk, much less try to juggle text messages and drive. Something big is coming. If you want to sell your house for a fair price, then do an open house on the 3rd. It is also a productive time to immerse yourself in study, nature, a yoga retreat or to learn about enlightenment. Most of us are too distracted: the challenge is to focus on present time and breathe. Work at it until it becomes natural. These are blustery days and the news is full of anger. However, it and we are also filled with light. Breathe deeply until you can find it. It is beneath the fear and is truly in the arms and eyes of those around you. Do something to lighten someone's load. Hire him to work with you or finish that project. Venus is exalted in Vedic astrology and she helps us discover

compassion. Practical Saturn faces her: She won't cry for you, but will help you build something. May: Mars dashes into Aries on May 3rd. Just in time for the New Moon. You've got to get going! Mars is good for action and he is particularly good for a fresh start. Not next year, but today or at least tomorrow. Mars is also good for business. Venus remains strong and this combination works for romance. Mars is actionoriented and this Venus is gentle: She is attraction-oriented. That can be confusing, but is also the best of both. Push ahead then allow. Plant your seed, but watch the weather. Know what your garden needs, and allow it to grow as is the plant's nature. And yes, the harvest is good. There is nothing in this process that allows for neglect. In fact, you may need to groom and protect your seedlings. Keep an eye on the stormy weather in your own thoughts. Do you really want to throw thunder and anger? Can you use your energy to build or will you dread? Jupiter breaks into Aries on May 8th. He'll spend a year here with 3 months in Ashwini. I love this mansion! It celebrates the healing power of dawn: The gift of a new day. Just sleep on the problem and it will look better tomorrow. Rest and the stress will step aside and present a new perspective. Jupiter is

Spring 2011 29

an optimist and this is a fresh start. In fact, it's the beginning of the great wheel of all 28 lunar mansions. The lunar mansion is called Ashwini for The Ashwins. They are magical beings born from the Sun God and his estranged wife. She left him because his ego was so big he couldn't see who she really was. Only when his children fought each other did he see that his family was amiss. He came to his wife with what he'd learned. From their union the Ashwins were born and they bring the dawn of a new day...every day. Now, Jupiter reminds us that even the most self-centered person can learn to see himself. He and we can seek enlightenment...and find it in time. June, a month for weddings, begins with Venus and Mars together. Think charisma, chemistry, impatience and demands.
