So you’re not feeling well, you’ve got all these symptoms, and you’re getting all kinds of advice, right? Things like:
… drink lots of lemon water every morning
… you’ve got to get alkaline
… you just need to start working out and get sweating
… stay away from gluten
… drink more water!
… what you need is our next 30 day detox!
… stay away from meat
… drink more coffee, drink less coffee!
… replenish your electrolytes with this sports drink
… carbohydrates are bad, eat more protein
… you need to eat more greens
… drink these shakes, they’ll balance you
… stay away from sugar, including fruit
… drink lots of distilled water
… don’t drink distilled – it leaches minerals!
… take high doses of vitamin C
… take a detox bath with epsom salts and you’ll feel great
… take a bunch of B12, that’s what you need!
… drink Kangen water or ozonated water
… disease only lives in acidic bodies
… just lose weight… (but how?)
… you need potassium, you need magnesium
… lower your cholesterol
… and stay away from sodium
… cut out the dairy, processed foods and sugar and you’re good
… milk – it does a body good!
OR… You’re doing the same health routine that got you healthy and helped you feel great previously, but now you’re not feeling so good anymore and you don’t understand why.
Are you taking a bunch of supplements but they don’t seem to be making any difference? You’re still tired all the time and you can’t get out of your own way? Or maybe your kids just can’t sit still and your doctor (or school) wants them to be on drugs for hyperactivity? It sounds to me like you’re all missing something to do with the basics.
I’m sure we’ve each heard many of these things in our quest to regain health, but which ones can we believe? Which one’s going to apply to you? I’m sure each of these things worked for someone at some point to help them feel great. But the question is… Which one of these things is going to work for you? For YOUR body?! For your kids?
Why in the world would you guess? When you can be sure.
If your doctor or naturopathic practitioner is not doing Reams (RBTI) pH urine and saliva analysis, you need to ask them why not. I mean, allergy testing sounds like a great idea, and yes, you get a neat printout… but it’s still not going to help you understand WHY you’re allergic to something in the first place. An allergy is not the cause. The dog or the cat is not the cause. The infection is not the cause. No, your gene mutation is not the cause either. Why is that allergy there in the first place? Why is that infection there in the first place? What are you so deficient in that caused that gene to mutate in the first place? Your body is a survivor. It adapts to the environment in which you have put it, and to what you have fed it as fuel. It does what it can with what you give it, and when in survival mode it makes choices and prioritizes, and turns functions off (or back on!) – just like you would, at work or at home.
If you’ve been seeing someone for your health concerns and things do not seem to be getting better, or you’re taking pharmaceuticals with no end in sight… call me or email me and let’s make an appointment to see how your kidneys and your liver are working, whether your digestion is functioning properly, if you’re drinking too much or too little water, and if you’re mineral deficient, and in what minerals? And why?
People don’t drop dead out of the blue. There are nutritional signs in every day bodily functions (and excretions) that your doctor is paying not one bit of attention to.
Stop spending money on supplements that are not working. Stop supporting drug companies and doctors that are not helping your body to get well. Stop throwing spaghetti at the wall hoping something is going to work. If they’re not educating you to help yourself then they’re just selling you stuff. Life is too precious to waste.
I see so clearly now that this type of analysis could have absolutely saved my Gavin’s life, and yet every single doctor we went to missed it – both natural and allopathic. They were too focused on their specialty pet drugs or methods, or trying to sell us a bunch of specialty testing that would take us into the weeds. They could not see the forest for the trees. The basics of life.
No, I’m not a medical doctor and I don’t diagnose diseases. Frankly, I don’t even believe in diseases anymore. Disease labels are something your doctor uses to name a collection of symptoms so they can prescribe you drugs, and then your life insurance company can deny you coverage.
What I can tell you, from a nutritional and toxicity standpoint, is how you can help your own body to help itself, and that is exactly what you must do. Your body is desperately waiting for you to give it what it needs.
