Simple Health Rules to Live By

Posted by: | Comments (0)

There are a few simple rules I live by that have kept me functional despite multiple diagnoses (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, GERD, osteoporosis, IBS–all of which seemed to be kept at bay):

1. Eat real food. And preferably, something that is live or raw at every meal.

Though the Internet has poo-poohed Reich’s ideas, it makes sense to me that live foods would have a life force in them, and I don’t see how it can hurt to eat something with the life force in it at every meal.

Besides, so many of the real breakthroughs in science and other arenas come from those who “think outside the box.” First their ideas are ridiculed, until more and more evidence starts to confirm them. Finally, their ideas are accepted and moved “into the box”–until there is another paradigm shift from others who “think outside the box.” (Unless, of course, the powers that be who don’t want any other narratives but theirs to prevail use that power to “deplatform” and silence those who dare think outside the box. But we haven’t seen that happen, have we?)

Get some sunlight every day, even if it’s through one of those happy lights. Cut the blue light in the evening.    

3. Live within your circadian rhythm. Every organ has its own little clock, and there is a master clock in your brain. Learn to know your own rhythms, especially optimal times for waking and getting to bed.

The HOLOS Balance devices really helps with this. It’s my all-time favorite wellness device, and in my opinion, better than anything else that’s way more expensive. Find out more here, and get 15% off if with this link.

 

4. Heal your heart issues. Start with your fears, and the lies you believe.

5. Practice gratitude. If you haven’t already, start keeping a gifts journal.

Are you concerned about bone health?

According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, it is estimated that worldwide, 200 million women suffer from osteoporosis. In addition, it is estimated that 1 in 3 women over age 50 will experience osteoporotic fractures, as well as 1 in 5 men. In the United States, it is estimated that 10 million people have osteoporosis, and another 44 million have low bone mass, which puts them at increased risk for developing osteoporosis.

My endocrinologist, who is responsible for my osteoporosis (he told me the medication for thyroid can cause bone loss, which is why he had to monitor my bone density), gave me some dire statistics about how many people die within a year of a hip fracture. (Why would he tell me this? Medical fear-mongering. . .)

However, the truth is, not all people with osteoporosis will fracture a bone, and not all people who have a hip fracture will die!

Especially if you’re doing all you can to increase and guard your bone health.

That’s why I’m recommending the MORE Natural Approaches to Osteoporosis & Bone Health 2.0 Summit, airing March 27-April 2, 2023 (encore weekend April 8-9).

I attended the first bone health summit by Margie Bessinger, and bought the excellent program. In the 50+ new interviews of this year’s summit, she and others will explore:

  • The root causes of bone loss

  • Safe exercises (with demonstrations) to strengthen and protect bones

  • IMPORTANT exercise guidelines (+ dangerous exercises to avoid!)

  • Nutrition and supplements for strong, healthy bones

  • Two powerful cooking demonstrations of bone healthy meals + kitchen tips

  • Fall prevention tips + movement practices for balance

  • The impact of stress on bone health + stress reduction strategies

  • How increased happiness can help protect your bones and your health

  • Advanced topics, like when to use medication, oxalates, parathyroid issues, MCAS and mold

  • And more!

Why attend this important health event?

Your host, Margie Bissinger, began working as a physical therapist with patients with osteoporosis over 25 years ago. These patients were told to exercise to help their condition, but were without guidance. To her dismay, many individuals were performing exercises that actually increased their risk of spinal fractures.

This inspired her to develop a wealth of strategies that have allowed thousands of people to improve their bone strength and live their lives without all the worries … and with more vitality and happiness than they ever knew was possible.

She’s here to inspire you with her expert guidance and wisdom.

Yes, you truly have the means to get started on better health today!

Resisting Medical Fear-mongering

Posted by: | Comments (2)

I listened to one of Pam Popper’s video clips on “How to Address Health Anxiety,” which got me to thinking and noticing the kinds of things doctors and the “medical world” are telling me.

(I recommend you listen to Pam’s message here.)

Examples . . .

Email from Medicare, subject line: “Are you at high risk for developing glaucoma? Find out.” Uh-oh, I’d better click on that link . . . (I did not.)

I saw an ophthalmologist for the first time last year. Is that why I got that email? Or is this just something they send to all us old people, to scare us? Read More→

The Immune System: Key to Your Health

Posted by: | Comments (0)

As I have been watching as many of these Immune Defense Summit interviews as I can, light bulbs are going off all over the place in my mind.

I have ALWAYS wondered why medicine wasn’t paying the most attention to understanding the immune system, as this is obviously the key to good health.

That’s why I got interested in The Healing Codes in the first place–because it addressed stresses that compromise the immune system.

This Immune Defense Summit is addressing the key issues of how the immune system works, what undermines it, and most importantly, what we can do about it.

And the people Jonathan Landsden interviewed are TOP in their fields. Many of them are doing truly ground-breaking work, such as Dr. Raphael Kellman in the emerging field of Microbiome Medicine. All in all, 36 of the world’s top experts in integrative medicine and science discuss the strengthening of your immune system to help protect you from all types of diseases, including autoimmune disorders, cancer, heart disease, dementias and even common pathogens like the flu, measles and pneumonia.

So many of my suspicions about the interaction of heavy metals, wireless technology, mold, dental issues, and toxins are being confirmed and informed by these experts.

The pieces of the puzzles of my own health issues and those of my loved ones and clients are coming together.

This is one series I MUST buy and listen to over and over. It’s one series I strongly recommend to you if you have any chronic health issue. Chances are, it is related to some challenge to your immune system.

You will finally get answers here.

I visited my thyroid doctor a few weeks ago, and he insisted I get a bone density test. He was very concerned because according to the last couple of bone density scans, I was technically in the “osteoporotic” zone.

(Since my thyroid was partially removed a couple of decades ago, and the doctor saw fit to kill the rest of the thyroid off through medication–which I just discovered!–I have to be on medication. And apparently the medication can cause osteoporosis, so the thyroid doctor has to monitor my bone health.)

The results showed that I was no longer in the osteoporotic range. I went from a T-score of -3.4 to -2.3.

Thankfully, that puts me out of the range where he “has to treat me” with medications. As far as I can tell (and my integrative doctor and dentist agree), there is no good medication for osteoporosis.

When I mentioned how glad I was that my T-score had improved that much, the doctor stated that the results were “impossible.”

“You can’t improve bone health that much.”

It was the end of the day, past his closing time, so I did not feel like disputing the results he himself told me he saw. I guess he was concluding that the other places where I got the tests done were not accurate.

I tend to believe it’s more likely that the Healing Codes I’ve been doing, along with diet and exercise, have helped me build bone back (or prevented the medication from having such negative effects).

So here we go: yet another declaration from a doctor of an “impossible result.”

Two others stand out. The time I had a procedure done to close up a hole–PFO–in my heart, and by the time they got in there, after 4 months of doing Healing Codes, the hole had closed up on its own. That doctor shrugged and said he’d only heard of 3 or 4 cases of “spontaneous closing of a PFO in his career–and he was about the retire, and was the head of the Heart Hospital in Naperville, IL. The whole story is here.

The other was the lesion in my mouth that hung around for 6 weeks until I started intentionally addressing it with Codes. Then it cleared up in 3 days. My dentist couldn’t believe it; she had seen me on a Tuesday, pronounced that she was going to send me to a specialist to look at. Three days later I broke a tooth so had to go see her again. I asked her to check the questionable spot in my mouth. She said in astonishment, “Diane, it’s 99% gone!”

Remember, though, that my “impossible results” come from daily doing at least 2 custom Healing Codes for the “issues of the heart,” along with a healthy lifestyle of good nutrition, a few quality supplements, and exercise (walking every single day, and doing MELT regularly).

Heath is not an accident. It’s the result of intentional, wise actions. While these don’t guarantee good results, they do go a long way toward creating them.

I hope this personal testimonial will encourage you to start or, if you’re already using them, to persevere with The Healing Codes.

We HC Practitioners believe the Healing Codes are always working. If you have not had any results to date from regularly doing Healing Codes, I encourage you to check out my article on “7 reasons healing doesn’t appear to be happening.”
