Emily Becker And Ashley James

Natural remedies have been proven by numerous studies and testimonials to be effective especially when it comes to hair and skincare. Apart from healthy hair, having glowing skin is a positive outcome of being able to take care of your health. My guest Emily Becker dealt with hair loss or alopecia for several years. But she was able to correct that along with other health issues by using natural remedies.

Alopecia

Emily Becker was 17 years old then when she tried to dye her hair. A week after she colored her hair, she saw a patch. Emily Becker initially thought it was from chemicals and hair dye. But eventually, she felt like maybe it was something more. A few years after, the hair was growing, but it would fall out again. It still hadn’t dawned on her to try using natural remedies.

Fast forward a few years later, Emily Becker got married at 21 years old, and a few months after, all her hair fell out. That started her big search for natural remedies.

“I didn’t want to take the steroid creams and injections because of the side effects. And I had itchy parts all over my body. What I realized after a while, my hair on my body was also falling out,” recalls Emily Becker.

Turning A New Leaf

Then one day, Emily Becker heard a radio commercial for a doctor who does lectures around the United States. She was able to go to one of his, and it was life-changing.

The doctor asked Emily Becker some questions about her diet and bowel movement. Then he identified what she needed nutritionally.

“He wanted me to stop eating grains, wheat, rye, barley, and oats. Plus, he wanted me to take supplements and become gluten-free,” said Emily Becker. “Within two weeks, I noticed my body becoming itchy and noticed my hair growing again. It was life-changing because I was bald for a year and a half.”

She adds, “I had to go through all those emotions of watching my hair fall out. And I became depressed. Most of us who lost their hair go through the depression. Even the men that I’ve met and lost their hair, too.”

Dealing With Health Issues

Emily Becker became pregnant in January of 2013, but before that, she had an irregular menstrual period. And Emily Becker also had a miscarriage which was tough and heartbreaking. She had terrible mood swings, too.

“I believe that it was about 70% physiological. Looking back, I can almost feel in memory the changes as I was getting healthier. When I first changed my diet, I almost went into a rebellion stage. I was having withdrawals from the foods that I miss,” Emily Becker said.

Before her health improved, Emily Becker would get so upset with her fingers because her cuticles were so split. They would bleed. And Emily Becker would have tiny bumps all over her hands like warts. She also had night sweats, dry skin, and acne. Hence, she was so grateful to have worked with a doctor who wanted to make a more Holistic approach.

“The hardest part of switching my diet and everything else was trying to find the right stuff. It included the make-up and shampoo which I had to make sure there was no barley or anything like that. That’s when I started to look into making my products for myself,” said Emily Becker.

Starting The Business

The first thing Emily Becker ever made was a belly wrap to address cellulite—4 ounces of carrier oil, add a little lemongrass, grapeseed, lavender and just a tad of frankincense essential oils to stimulate skin cells to regrow and restore themselves. You rub the mixture onto your belly, wrap your belly using a food wrap and leave it on for about an hour. Emily Becker says it’s effective because she used it herself.

“Coconut oil is great, but I don’t like the greasy feeling of it. I only use it in my body lotions. I recommend shea butter which can moisturize and won’t have that greasy feeling,” Emily Becker said.

She adds, “It’s more healing than any butter out there because it has the highest healing properties. If you can find it raw, it’s even better. And the oil I like for my face is tamanu oil. It makes your skin glow.”

Expanding Her Product Range

Emily Becker never thought she’d start a business. She said making products was initially to help her my father-in-law find something he can put on his hives that weren’t a steroid.

“Even going through the Naturopathic route, he’s always struggled with hives. So, I made him a very basic shea butter and beeswax salve with those essential oils. The jar lasts two years,” Emily Becker shares.

Then Emily Becker mother-in-law started getting allergic. She had some favorite face products from a company that has products with natural ingredients in it. But it also has fillers and chemicals to preserve. So, Emily Becker made her a face cream made of shea butter.

“Eventually I made body lotion for some people for Christmas. Within a month or two, people started asking for it and offered to pay me. I started a small business making all-natural products that are truly natural,” said Emily Becker.

Emily Becker also made a skin salve for psoriasis, eczema and general skin damage. She makes it with the tea tree that she grows in my own home. Emily Becker infuses the tea tree with jojoba oil and blends that together to create a skin salve. She also mixes it with carrot seed and lavender essential oils.

Emily Becker’s daughter also helps her make a fire-shimmering lip gloss. It hydrates your lips, and it’s a beautiful shade of autumn red.

Like her lip gloss, Emily Becker’s natural deodorant, face cream, lip balm, hair mask, rollers, face mask, face serums, beard balms, body lotions, face cream without the essential oils are made with all-natural ingredients. She also doesn’t use water in her products. Instead, Emily Becker uses aloe vera juice.

Rhassoul Clay

Emily Becker says she uses rhassoul clay for her face and hair mask. Because when you use clay on your skin, it draws out the toxins.

Rhassoul clay is the densest type of clay.  Studies have shown that rhassoul clay will reduce dryness and flakiness. It will also improve the texture of your skin because of the minerals in it.

“If you have rhassoul clay in your hair mask, it’s like empowerment for your hair. It gives a full body texture and softness to it. Furthermore, it also helps lock curls. So, I use rhassoul clay for both my skin and hair mask,” Emily Becker said.

The hair mask comes in a little applicator. Emily Becker says to take the clay powder, put into applicator with a little bit of water. Shake it and squirt it into your scalp with the applicator.

Make sure your hair is combed all the way through and tie it up. Let the mask harden and do its work for 20 minutes and rinse. It rinses out pretty quick. And because it grabs all the oil and grime from your hair, you don’t need a shampoo or conditioner.

There are so many wonderful natural remedies on Emily Becker’s Etsy shop so make sure you check out the website. Rest assured, all her natural remedies contain no chemical ingredients and just as useful to address your various skin and hair problems.

“There’s hope, and you’re not alone. Just stick to the help you have. You can reach out to many people. If you want to hear from me, I’d love to hear from you. Just be patient, and you’re still beautiful,” Emily Becker said.

Bio

Emily Becker is not a doctor nor a scientist. She’s a mother and a homemaker. She also played video games for a living before getting pregnant. Limited on money and not willing to always be in the hands of the M.D., Emily Becker followed doctors, and N.D.’s that she trusted (Glidden, Fuchs, Mercola, Wallach. She has the giant Alternative Health reference book and spends tons of time researching including using pub.med.

Mitch Harb And Ashley James

I recently guested on the Easy Wins Podcast of Personal Trainer and Health Coach, Mitch Harb. The episode expounds on some easy wins towards weight loss and body transformation, as well as achievable daily habits to get giant results. So, read on to discover how easy wins can improve your overall health.

Turning Point

My Learn True Health podcast has been so fulfilling since it first launched in 2016. Today, the podcast surpassed four million downloads, and I feel blessed that my mission of helping people get their health back is taking off.

But it didn’t feel like easy wins were achievable during the lowest points in my life. I had many health struggles for years and was even bed-ridden at one point.

Eleven years ago, I met my husband. At the time, I was type 2 diabetic, I had chronic infections, chronic adrenal fatigue, and eventually had to quit my job. I also struggled with brain fog, infertility, PCOS, and depression because doctors told me I couldn’t have kids.

Dealing With Depression

What kept me together despite my health struggles was my mindset. Through my journey of learning true health, I learned NLP or neuro-linguistic programming and became a Master Practitioner and Trainer of it. I also learned timeline therapy, hypnosis, and coaching because I knew I needed to work on my emotions as well.

My depression was at its worse when my mom passed away in my 20s and my father followed shortly after. I was so depressed and broken when my mom died of cancer. I wanted to find a solution, come out the other side to be stronger and better. That’s why I discovered NLP.

While I felt like a prisoner of my own body, my spirit, mind, and mindset weren’t. That’s what kept me going. And that’s when I decided to pursue a career to help people.

Neuro-linguistic Programming

Neuro-linguistic Programming is a mixture of behavioral psychology and cognitive therapy. It’s an understanding of the conscious and unconscious mind. Back in the 60s, the creators looked around therapists who are getting outstanding results.  They created a system around what they do to replicate those excellent results.

Tony Robbins is a great example. He took the practitioner level with Richard Bandler and John Grinder who were the creators of Neuro-linguistic Programming. They allow you to shift your beliefs, mindset and emotional state, as well as let you change even your unconscious habits. The technique works, and you need to know when to use each method to help you.

Neuro-linguistic Programming is not deep hypnosis. There’s a light trance to guide the person to their aha moments and breakthroughs. But it’s not manipulative in a deep state of trance.

Find Solutions

Back in 2005, my health was getting worse and didn’t understand anything about nutrition or healing my body. Then I realized you have to set the intention of what you want. I wanted to find the answers to my help problems.

So, in 2008 when Netflix just started streaming documentaries, my husband and I started watching health documentaries. The first one we watched advised people to shop within the perimeter of the grocery store. In one week, we cut out all the junk food we were eating.

Food Choices

With a month of just eating meat, eggs and dairy, vegetables and fruits, my husband and I also went sugar-free and avoided processed foods. My chronic infections went away with a whole foods diet.

Years later, I came across a Naturopath who had an interesting way of explaining supplements, nutrition, and diet. Hence, I started following his recommendations. My diabetes went away in three months, as well as my chronic adrenal fatigue and brain fog.

Plus, my PCOS corrected itself. My infertility went away, and we now have a 4-year old boy conceived naturally. To think we tried conceiving for six years. It turned out; easy wins entailed doing diet and lifestyle changes.

Because of my success, I felt had to get this information out there. Hence, the Learn True Health Podcast was born. With over 300 episodes, we have interviewed experts. That’s why I love the mission of Mitch Harb. Because making easy wins is how I got my health back one little step at a time.

Minerals And Supplements

In 2011, when my husband and I intentionally went gluten-free, I lost 25 pounds of water weight in a month. I went down two ring sizes, and my husband went down two and a half ring sizes.

At this point, I realized that minerals are essential. Before I took supplements, I was hungry all the time because my body was craving minerals. Our cells need sixteen minerals to make insulin work with the cell.

One of the minerals is chromium, and the other is vanadium. They are trace minerals and the most important thing you can give to your body. We’re not getting it well in our diet anymore because of the farming process over the last hundreds of years.

Furthermore, we don’t mineralize the soil, and we don’t rotate the crops. Plus, pesticides like Monsanto’s Roundup is a chelator. As a result, they bind to the trace minerals in our soil, and they wash them away.

I don’t think I would have resolved all my health issues if I had only eaten healthy foods because I was so deficient in minerals. However, I’m not saying supplements are the answer. Supplements fill in the gaps, and sometimes that is the missing piece that puts the whole thing into place.

Sugar-free and Dairy-free

To be able to be sugar-free and dairy-free, you have to admit there’s an addictive component to dairy. Every dairy from every animal including humans has an addictive component to it because we have to make the calf or the baby want to suckle and drink the milk to survive.

But the problem is when we take the milk and concentrate it, it stimulates dopamine and all the feel-good hormones. It feels good to consume dairy, but 51% of the population can’t tolerate it because it comes from the immune system of another animal.

Sometimes our immune system reacts to it which can cause a lot of inflammation. So, for a month, try the elimination diet and observe the reaction of your body. Every month, eliminate one thing, do a test and reintroduce it. You can do a blood testing for this, but they’re not accurate.

Boosting Energy Levels

Balancing blood sugar gives you more energy. And drinking enough water is essential because if there’s a 5% reduction in our hydration, we have a 25 % reduction in our energy production.

On the other hand, B-vitamins are great which you can get from vegetables. But the best thing to boost energy levels is having a good sleep. Sleep hygiene also is a fantastic thing to look into like wearing blue-blocking glasses.

Blue-blocking glasses block the light from the blue light which mimics moon-based sun. It tricks your brain into thinking it’s not time to make melatonin or the sleep hormone. But when you wake up, get some sunlight directly on your eyeball because that burns away the melatonin and resets your sleeping rhythm.

Try also to stay away from caffeine. Caffeine is a replacement for sleep, and that will lead to adrenal burnout and exhaustion. Healthy sleep habits set you for healing mode and more energy to do more things. There is an adjustment period, but the rewards are more significant in the long run.

Infertility

I eliminated twelve bad foods that this Naturopath recommended. Bad foods cause damage to the body and inflammation. So, I took away the foods that were harming me, filled my body with foods that are healing, took supplements for three years and then consulted my doctor to help me increase my healthy cholesterol.

My doctor determined I should get on some Chinese herbs. Then I finally got pregnant the next month. It’s a case-to-case basis so consult a health practitioner you can trust.

As for men, some studies show that the last 12 months of a man’s health goes into the health of their son. But the woman’s health is more important because the baby is living in her womb and living off the nutrients in the woman’s body. The reason why we have so many miscarriages is that the body is saying it cannot support the baby on a cellular level.

Traditional medicine is just starting to acknowledge this. Pharmaceutical medicine wants to suppress knowledge around Holistic Medicine. The best thing you can do to get pregnant is to prepare the body for over a year before conception. Take your supplements to make sure you’re getting all the minerals — 16 minerals and 12 amino acids.

Also, make sure to avoid eating crappy foods that cause inflammation and damage to your body. Avoid being exposed to chemicals and pesticides as well. Eat food that makes you feel good for days after. Then do a food and mood journal to get to know your body more.

An excellent book is Dirty Genes by Ben Lynch. The book gives a good understanding of how to support your body based on your genetics in terms of nutrition. Folate, iron or folic acid is good, but there are many other nutrients you need to support the body.

The Right Mindset

I have a technique I love to teach through my Free Your Anxiety webinar. Not only does it get to the root cause and eliminate anxiety, but it sets you back towards success.

The body and the mind create anxiety when we’re focusing on the things we don’t want to have and having it happen. Example, if you wake up in the morning with fear, procrastination, worry, and anxiety, these are all symptoms of the same problem. Then eventually your gut health suffers as well as your hormones. 

Negative thoughts also trigger stress mode and its robbing the body of resources because you’re taking the body out of healing mode. Instant survival mode exhausts your long-term resources. It can cause disease and will not help you heal. 

Try this simple technique:

  • Close your eyes.
  • Float 15 min past the successful completion of the event that you’re interested in completing.
  • Imagine yourself a year from now looking down on your life and look at it from the standpoint of success.

The whole point of this technique is that you have to make up a vision in your mind. Imagine yourself at a particular moment in time, and it is working out successfully. It’s what you want in your future.  A positive mindset is when a problem arises; you want to solve it from the logic brain and be calm and centered. Because ultimately, stress never helps you solve a problem.

Critical Thinking

We were raised to be victims of society. In any giant industry profiting from people being a certain way, there are very few institutions that want us to be free thinkers.

An excellent resource is John Gatto’s book, Weapons of Mass Instruction. He was a teacher who won outstanding awards. It talks about the history of our school system is designed to make good little factory workers. 

School systems systematically took critical thinking out of the educational system 150 years ago. It’s called the Trivium. It’s a 2500-year old system taught in Plato’s era. You can link to the Trivium Education website if you want to learn more about critical thinking.

Again, I want to emphasize that stress is not an emotion but getting rid of it is life-changing. You don’t feel stress. But instead you accumulate it, and your body snaps when you ignore the signs.

But you can cure yourself through easy wins. Bring stress down by laughing every day or do meditation. Doing five things every day that bring down stress are considered easy wins. Ultimately, find the things that bring you joy so you can achieve true health.

Robyn Youkilis & Ashley James

Many of you have heard the power of intuition. That power of intuition we all have can also apply in eating intuitively to heal our gut and improve our digestive health. To explain how we can develop our intuition towards making the right food choices, my guest, Author of Thin From Within and The Go with Your Gut Way to Lose Weight, Robyn Youkilis will dive into that and more in this episode.

Ideal Figure

Robyn Youkilis’ journey began when she was just 13 years old. It was a time when her body started to have a defined shape. Hence, she started getting conscious especially because magazines featured women who supposedly had the ideal form.

It ended up that Robyn Youkilis thought there was something wrong with her body and that she needed to fix her body. Because of this, she started looking into the diet culture.

“At the same time, my mother was always an incredible cook, whipping up wonderful dishes. So, I always had a deep love and appreciation for food. However, it also led to the torment,” recalls Robyn Youkilis.

It eventually confused Robyn Youkilis through her teenage years until her 20s. But when she started dating her then boyfriend who is now her husband, Robyn Youkilis learned how to buy her food at the Farmer’s Market.

Turning Points

Another turning point was when Robyn Youkilis went to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. She enrolled in the school as she started getting into cooking more for herself and her boyfriend. It was here when Robyn Youkilis made the connection between how she ate and how it was making her feel.

But the real turning point was when Robyn Youkilis and her husband talked about starting a family. Little by little, she shed more of that obsession and more of that unhealthy view of self. Robyn Youkilis eventually brought in more nourishing food, cooking for herself and connecting to who she already was.

Create Your Space

Robyn Youkilis’ job as a health practitioner and an individual is to create a little space. She advises people to create some support and some lightness around showing up for yourself in that change.

“Create a space so you can have this consistent conversation with yourself. When you have these little turning points along the way, they can serve you instead of taking you down,” Robyn Youkilis said.

She adds, “Everyone deserves to feel amazing in their body. And your body wants that for you. No matter what you feed it, your body will digest it for you. We can’t have our focus on so many different things. You have to think about it and feel it as well.”

Listening To Your Intuition

First, Robyn Youkilis says we must understand that it’s going to be a winding path and it may take some time. She usually likes to teach this practice to clients where you put one hand on your lower abdominal wall and let that go.

“A lot of us spend a lot of our day sucking it in, especially women. And it’s really about giving yourself a moment to breathe into that space. At that point, ask yourself what would make you feel most supported,” said Robyn Youkilis. 

She adds, “You have the answer already. Often, we’ll hear a little helpful voice from our intuition.” 

Robyn Youkilis says journaling is also good because it means your thoughts have space and they feel valid. You may not do anything with those thoughts. But just having a place for that helps, rather than turning to food to experience comfort, space or a place.

“In learning to listen to your intuition, you would learn to figure out what feels more supportive in a given situation,” Robyn Youkilis said. “For example, having a grounding practice like taking a bath when you go home for the day can help you feel supported instead of turning to food.”

Understanding Your Cravings

According to Robyn Youkilis, a healthy craving feels like it’s something nice to have. And a craving that you might want to gather a little more information on is one that feels like you have to have it.

There might be a nutritional deficiency going on there, or it might be something around your day. Ultimately, Robyn Youkilis says it takes little moments from our day where we can start to have that conversation more deeply with ourselves.

Eating Using Intuition

Robyn Youkilis loves all kinds of food. But it doesn’t have a grip on her because she says her diet now is much more supportive of her gut and her body.

“Focus on the gut because that is the center of your body. Our digestive system is responsible for so many things on even more than just digesting food,” explains Robyn Youkilis.

Having A Healthy Gut

A healthy gut better absorbs the nutrients from the food you’re eating. Robyn Youkilis believes you get more out of what you’re consuming. You’re going to feel better from that food. A healthy gut also means a happier you because 90% of our serotonin is produced in your gut. And 80% of our immune tissue is in our gut.

“Aside from the mental conversation going on, there’s a lot at play. Something that may serve you this month may be different next month,” said Robyn Youkilis. “So, know that there’s never going to be the one thing that’s going to fix all the things. It’s always going to be a lot of parts of this conversation.”

To have a healthy digestive system, Robyn Youkilis also reveals that it is ideal for releasing waste at least once a day.  She recommends a huge glass of water first thing in the morning and gives your system a chance to flush itself out. For others, it may be a dehydration issue for our colon.

Importance Of Hydration

Juicing organic celery first thing in the morning is quite trendy. Robyn Youkilis says there are some medicinal benefits, but she believes that part of the reason why it’s working so well for so many people is that it’s hydrating their body on a cellular level.

Robyn Youkilis says adding chia seeds to water is also helpful. Chia seeds act as a lubricant and essentially allow your organs and the cells of your body to integrate the hydration into your body. A pinch of Himalayan sea salt or lemon water can also help with hydration.

“The ultimate goal is to connect to our intuition more so that we can digest not just our food, but we can digest our lives,” said Robyn Youkilis.

Importance Of Chewing

Robyn Youkilis stresses that another important thing is how you chew your food. Take time to eat your food well. It’s a miracle worker.

“The science behind that is because our stomach does not have teeth. It wasn’t designed to break down whole chunks of food the way we usually do it,” Robyn Youkilis explained. 

Robyn Youkilis also says some foods are harder to digest like nuts, dried fruit or some leafy greens. That’s why raw, dense, leafy greens are going to cause a little bit of bloating or stomach upset. Red meat is also hard to break down.

Meal Prep

Meal prep for Robyn Youkilis means making some basics ahead of time. A lot of people take this further and meal prep specific meals. But in Robyn Youkilis’ book, she teaches readers first to boil an egg and roast two trays of vegetables.

“Prep your greens and keep in the fridge, ready to go. Once you have done these basic items, I also talk about a power parfait in the book. It’s like an amped up yogurt bowl so that you feel full longer,” said Robyn Youkilis.

Robyn Youkilis does meal preps for the week, and when it’s time to put it together, she will use a basic template. The Rule of Five Plates is part of what she teaches in her book.

“I would have the power parfait in the morning, mix and match based on this little light template for lunch. Dinner will be some prepped things. Keep it simple and get real with your meal prep. It’s about having these staples ready in the fridge,” advises Robyn Youkilis.

For me, the Panasonic infrared oven significantly made meal prep easier. The oven heats things fast like two to three minutes. I use glass containers without the lid. It heats up way more than a microwave would, so you have to use a mitt.

Rule Of Five Plates

Robyn Youkilis has a meal prep class showing how she meal preps and walks you through it. She does the templates from the Rule of Five Plates mostly for lunches.

One template is greens. Raw or steamed is fine. Mix up the greens. The next template is healthy fats like avocados, olive oil, butter, coconut oil or some good healthy fat. Sliced almonds or goat cheese is also good.

The third template is protein. Wild salmon, grass-fed beef, organic chicken, lentils, trout, sardines, smoked mussels are sustainable options. Know what you have and know what your resources are.

Number four is fermented foods. That is where the gut health comes in, and it’s going to be the food that helps you digest the other foods better. Fermented foods can be raw fermented sauerkraut, fermented carrots, radishes or kimchi.

“I have some recipes in the book that’s easy to do. Fermented food is rich in live probiotic bacteria which will feed on the good bacteria in your gut and create a happy, healthy microbiome,” Robyn Youkilis said.

The last template is a cooked vegetable. This is where the meal prep comes back into play. It could be anything from cubed sweet potatoes, roasted zucchini or roasted carrots. Ultimately, you can do so many different things using the templates.

“For dinner, you can have a bean pasta with some tuna and kale. And then I would eat some of my fermented radishes on the side,” said Robyn Youkilis. “I’m always thinking more greens, healthy fats and fermented food. Also, know when you need new inspiration to shift things up.”

She adds, “I don’t want you to feel bad about what you’re doing or not doing. You got this. Life is always changing, but you can do it. You are designed to thrive, heal and to feel good.”

Nicole Davidsohn And Ashley James

Phytocannabinoid therapy can be significantly helpful if you’re looking into alternative ways of healing. I’m sure most of you have heard the benefits of hemp to address health issues. But surprisingly, whole plant hemp phytocannabinoid therapy can also heal pets. My guest Nicole Davidsohn has an exciting story to tell regarding phytocannabinoid therapy as well as educate us on the other healing benefits of this wonderful hemp herb.

Series Of Accidents

The Eva company story began in spring 2014 with a series of accidents. Eva founder Dane Kemp was in a near-death experience because of a car accident but still came to work. He did, however, suffer from post-concussion syndrome.

His partner and co-founder Nicole Davidsohn, on the other hand, was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Doctors initially thought it was a stomach flu. Even with a flu protocol it never stopped. Nicole Davidsohn was misdiagnosed. It was only after a colonoscopy that she discovered she had ulcerative colitis.

“The biggest thing I noticed with ulcerative colitis was fatigue. The way that it hurt my life was that I just wanted to sleep all day and I had no appetite,” shares Nicole Davidsohn.

Before Nicole Davidsohn was diagnosed, she was a raw vegan. After her diagnosis, Nicole Davidsohn was prohibited by her doctor to eat raw foods and vegetables. So, she ate boiled chicken and sweet potatoes to get back on track.

A few months later, Nicole Davidsohn fell on a flight of stairs. She ended up with misplaced ribs and extreme pain throughout her nervous system. Nicole Davidsohn still did a high-intensity workout class but felt worse after. Hence, she was rushed to the E.R., stopped going to work and eventually went into depression spiraled by her injuries.

Health Struggle

Weeks went by, and Nicole Davidsohn tried the medication the doctors gave her. The medicines were really strong which made Nicole Davidsohn sick. She slept a lot, avoided the sun and noise. Dane Kemp convinced her to move into their home in Baltimore so his mom could help take care of her, but Nicole Davidsohn’s condition didn’t improve.

One night, Dane Kemp suggested to Nicole Davidsohn that they go to Oaksterdam University in California. He initially wanted to take their cannabis seminar on the history of growing. It was timely because, in 2015, the industry was beginning to open up.

Phytocannabinoid2

Availability

Nicole Davidsohn says cannabis helped Dane Kemp in the past with attention issues. But on the East Coast, it’s not easy to get. Even if Nicole Davidsohn had a medical card for her ulcerative colitis, it limited her to two grams per day of the only strain they had which was a blue dream. Blue Dream is a strain to get you thinking, be creative and invigorate your mind.

“You can’t just smoke any cannabis and get relief from it because you have to have the correct ratio of cannabinoids and terpenes to help you with your specific ailment. In D.C., the dispensary you go to is dependent on your address,” Nicole Davidsohn said.

Seeing An Opportunity

Because of this, Dane Kemp saw an opportunity and also saw a way to help people. Taking a seminar at Oaksterdam University, the couple learned so much about cannabis, cannabinoids, growing it, its history, starting a business, and learning about the industry.

Nicole Davidsohn also called up an old friend in California who gave her a bag of medical cannabis goodies like edibles, vapes, and joints including a type of caramel popcorn which contained THC. It was the first time she used cannabis as real medicine.

Nicole Davidsohn ate the popcorn at night and slept well. It did have Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC in it, but she wasn’t high when she went to class. Instead, she just used it after class. The THC popcorn ultimately made Nicole Davidsohn feel better.

Going back home to the East Coast, the couple did some preparations to move back to the West Coast to start a new life and begin healing holistically.

Cannabis Juice

When Nicole Davidsohn was in California, she had been studying the work of Dr. William Courtney who was famous for cannabis juice. She eventually wanted to grow her own vegan cannabis plant and juice it.

“So, I bought an aero garden, planted some seeds and started growing cannabis like a normal herb on the counter. When it was big enough, I stuck it in my juicer with some turmeric and ginger. It tasted great,” said Nicole Davidsohn.

Cannabis has acidic cannabinoids in its raw form. THC is THC-A, so it has a carbon molecule on it. Nicole Davidsohn says that for it to become psychoactive, or to make you feel high, you need to heat it to 220 degrees Fahrenheit for a certain amount of time.

“When you juice it, just like you would go outside and take a fresh apple off a tree, chop it up and put in your juicer. I would take the bud off the plant and put in the juicer,” Nicole Davidsohn said. “It extracts all the cannabinoids, terpenes and chlorophyll which is super healthy for you. You won’t get stoned.”

Effects of Juicing

First thing Nicole Davidsohn felt was that her eyes widened, and her brain cleared up. It gave her four to six hours of energy. One reason is that raw cannabis is full of nutrients. It’s also a complete protein with all the essential amino acids. It has a ton of vitamins and minerals, too.

“The reason why I started juicing was to help my brain recover, but it was also to help get my colitis back in remission,” revealed Nicole Davidsohn. “I think because I needed the nutrients, it started to slow my digestion and bring my body back to homeostasis instead of an inflamed state. It didn’t heal my post-concussion syndrome. I went to speech therapy for that.”

She adds, “Juicing is not the easiest thing in the world. I juice three times a week. But once I made a container of it, it last three days unless you vacuum seal it then it will last seven days. I wasn’t consistent at first. For the first year, I was juicing every month and taking other cannabinoids as well.”

Birth Of Eva

Starting the company Eva, they began as the first 100% comprehensively lab-tested dispensary delivery in Sonoma County. Both Dane Kemp and Nicole Davidsohn got familiar with the certificate of analysis on everything. Eventually, Eva was the only dispensary in California in 2015 to have their menu comprehensively third-party lab-tested.

“The juice inspired the capsules that we have. I made one called Better Brain which has Bacopa, Matcha and the whole hemp plant flower in it. The speech therapy plus the juice and Better Brain capsules helped my brain to heal,” revealed Nicole Davidsohn.

Mary The Dog

Mary was Nicole Davidsohn’s a Pit/Dalmatian mix who received a terminal lymphoma diagnosis in October 2016. She was given three months to live with or without chemotherapy.

Nicole Davidsohn was making the juice at the time and helping people with assorted health ailments. So, she thought of giving Mary the juice by incorporating it in her food. It was not long before Mary went from being fatigued to energized.

“We also bought some CBD oils and mixed it with the whole plant. They were raw oils. But Mary did not respond the same way compared to when she was given the juice,” recalled Nicole Davidsohn. “I think because the oil is fat-soluble, and it takes a lot longer to digest and be absorbed.”

Nicole Davidsohn continued to give Mary the juice with turmeric and ginger. The dog continued to stay energized and didn’t get sick. After Eva company developed Better Pet Relief for Mary’s cancer and arthritis, Mary’s cancer has gone into remission.

The capsules also help manage Mary’s arthritis. Aside from this, Nicole Davidsohn also adds a little bit of black pepper extract into Mary’s diet to help in the absorption.

Compatibility With Hemp

Nicole Davidsohn explains that we have an endocannabinoid system. Endo means inside. We already have receptors and cannabinoids in our body. And cannabinoids are also found in the plant cannabis. But when we’re stressed out, we make fewer cannabinoids naturally.

“When we take in external cannabinoids from hemp or cannabis, it’s like getting a multivitamin. So, it’s fulfilling that deficiency. I like to think of it as vitamins,” said Nicole Davidsohn. “When I think of the endocannabinoid system, I think like it’s just another set of receptors for a vitamin that we aren’t taking any more.”

She adds, “I believe we have an epidemic of what I call endocannabinoid deficiency syndrome. When people are deficient in making their natural cannabinoids, they feel so much better when they ingest CBD oil, Eva CBD capsules or edibles.”

Dementia

First of all, Nicole Davidsohn says their capsules can’t cure, treat or manage any disease. For dementia, in particular, she suggests their product, Better Brain. Nicole Davidsohn also revealed that the element Bacopa was used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for dementia and there are studies behind it. But cannabis can also do that.

All of Eva’s capsules contain whole flowers, so everything is raw. And it is made of organic hemp flowers. It aims to clear the brain and give you that phytocannabinoid nutrient in case you’re deficient in it which could also be causing memory loss. Nicole Davidsohn again assures everyone that the capsules will not get you stoned.

Dosage

According to Nicole Davidsohn, the capsules are formulated to last four hours. If you’re looking to last an entire day of super brain power, Nicole Davidsohn recommends taking one capsule when you wake up and another one in the afternoon.

“The formulas are based on research I did to find the best dose of Bacopa, cannabinoids, and Matcha green tea,” Nicole Davidsohn said. “Bacopa is also an adaptogenic stress reliever. People use it for stress relief, and they also use it for pain relief.”

Panic Attacks

For panic attacks, Nicole Davidsohn highly suggests their Better Mood product. It contains Valerian Root, Lemon Balm, and Hemp.

A little dose of Valerian Root helps you calm down. It’s used for insomnia, anxiety and increase GABA receptors. Nicole Davidsohn says Lemon Balm is safe even for kids. Many kids take Lemon Balm for anxiety and focus.

Pain Medication Addiction

Nicole Davidsohn says their formula may help someone with a pain medication addiction by employing phytocannabinoid therapy. As a person tapers off the hard pain drugs, Nicole Davidsohn suggests taking Better Relief Capsules. However, it is advisable to work with a doctor to help taper off the medications and increase the intake of raw cannabinoids with turmeric and ginger.

“Many studies have shown how CBD and whole plant hemp can reduce the side effects of withdrawal by nourishing the endocannabinoid system,” said Nicole Davidsohn. “If we’re able to supplement the body with phytocannabinoids, it would help people get off pain medications more quickly.”

Eva’s products are also safe for children because it is non-psychoactive. Nicole Davidsohn says all their capsules are whole herbs, whole plants, and raw vegan.

Better Brain and Better Mood Capsules can help children focus better and address their emotional issues like anxiety. Nicole Davidsohn also says that one of the big things that children can benefit from phytocannabinoid therapy is to help them reduce toxin overload. 

Full Spectrum

Full Spectrum would be including all of the cannabinoids and the naturally present terpenes in the plant. Nicole Davidsohn says you can get a Full Spectrum extract which would be using the whole plant.

“Take a whole hemp flower, put it in some olive oil, shut it and put it in a dark place. Shake it once every day. Leave it in the dark cupboard for two weeks,” advises Nicole Davidsohn. “Then strain the oil out from the flower, and now you have a Full Spectrum Tincture.”

Full Spectrum means it contains all of the cannabinoids and all of the terpenes that are naturally present in the plant. Nicole Davidsohn reveals that their company uses therapeutic hemp, specifically grown to be phytocannabinoid-rich, organic and does not have any contaminants in it.

Eva Products

There have been many success stories of people who have benefitted from cannabis juice and Eva’s products. Other worthy products to check out from the Eva website is Better Sleep and Better Pet Relief. As mentioned previously, Better Pet Relief helped Nicole Davidsohn’s dog get on the road to recovery.

Eric Thorton And Ashley James

This is part two of our interview with Metaphysical Counselor, Exorcist, Psychic, Healer, Eric Thorton who talks about how energetic boundaries play a significant role in healing. Energetic boundaries are in everything we do.

Even what we experience in this life is brought about by energetic boundaries from our past lives. To know more about energetic boundaries, energy exchanges and how it affects our whole being, check out this episode.

Reincarnation

Whatever it is you do, it’s going to come to you naturally in a future life. Eric Thorton says that in all of our lives when we resolve issues, we bounce energy typically.

“For example, if a person has committed suicide in a past life, it is a bad thing. The knowledge that would come into it subconsciously like fear of a high object will affect the present life,” said Eric Thorton.

He adds, “So then you’re going to start re-living being thrown off a high object. You’re going to think about negative things and then feel negative. And then they are going to remember jumping off a high object, and then they’re more likely to do that again.”

Eric Thorton also explains that if they are tapped that suicide is not a bad thing, it’s just a way of dying. And start having memories from jumping from something high, they can feel sad. It removes it from the table for the next life.

Going Towards the Light

Just because we die doesn’t mean our soul dies. Even ghosts have energetic boundaries. Eric Thorton says so many ghosts and souls have not moved on. Because they’re afraid of the things, they were tapped that were going to happen after they died.

“In our life, just like if you’re taught suicide is bad, if you are taught that this is the way to heaven, then that’s what you’re going to be looking for when you die. And if it’s not there, you might think it’s going to lead to hell and don’t go to how people would call it — the light,” Eric Thorton said.

He adds. “The light is knowledge. So, when you do die, you leave the body and see everything around you. You don’t feel your body anymore, and you have full knowledge and full personality.”

Dealing With Death

If you’re taught to fear death, Eric Thorton says you are going to fear death. And you most likely won’t move ahead as easily or at all.

“People who become ghosts, some of them are become ghosts simply out of fear,” said Eric Thorton. “Others don’t move on because of their narcissism. They must control the family. They’re the patriarch or matriarch. They hang back to control people.”

He adds, “If they are a ghost with some possessions from the life they just left, we call out a poltergeist. Because those kinds of ghosts will have a hard time separating themselves with their possessions, that’s why you’ll experience situations where things move even when no one is there.”

Level Of Possession

Eric Thorton reveals that depending on the level of possession, the poltergeist can walk into your energy field just like a ghost can. That’s another set of energetic boundaries. Once you enter the energy field, it can control every aspect of your body in every way. It changes your personality. You can’t protect yourself. If it happens, it happens.

“If you can make it safe for people to explore who they are on a soul level, that’s when they can get through the drama and start coming out on the other side of the field. And you have to do it step by step as per each’s guides,” said Eric Thorton.

Using Your Gift

“Everybody wants my gift. And the fact is, if people have my gift, I earned them in a past life and this life,” said Eric Thorton. “On the gift of second sight, it can break your brain. So, you have to be psychologically ready for that. And anyone who says they want it is not psychologically ready for that. That is the first dead giveaway.”

This is because Eric Thorton says Masters are born. It takes a unique gift to recognize energetic boundaries and how to use it properly. Masters have these series of past lives that had old souls and gained the wisdom that keeps their brain from doing drama.

Because ultimately, if you are seeking to be a healer, you have to care. And you have to understand what energetic boundaries are. If you don’t care, you still have some learning to do. And Karma is the learning tool.

“If you don’t care, you have to learn to care. So, you will live life then, or you aren’t cared about in whatever way it is. And that’s your karma. You learn by not being cared about, and you learn to care. That’s the learning tool,” Eric Thorton explains.

Acceptance and Truth

The soul doesn’t learn by reading a book. Eric Thorton says the soul learns by doing things. Humans have to legitimize where we are at to feel safe. So, people legitimize bad behaviors, so they feel safe. And the safe is righteousness and proof.

“Possessions play on the filters that we develop so they can keep you in a certain pattern. This is where the bigger possessions start to come in. These are the ones that will make your belief system so strong,” said Eric Thorton.

He adds, “Different influences are thought forms. Those are cultural thought forms. Denial is a big wide river. It gets worse when you deny it.”

Eric Thorton And Ashley James

Energetic boundaries play a significant part in healing. It’s so powerful that we do have to understand how it affects us to be able to make it work in our favor. Energetic boundaries cover protection and spiritual healing. My guest, Internationally-recognized Metaphysical Counselor, Exorcist, Psychic, Healer, and Author Eric Thorton will explain how energetic boundaries affect karma, suicide, anger, frustration, exorcism, and possessions.

Energy Exchange

To understand energetic boundaries, we must first learn about energy exchange. Energy exchange is about learning to exist in this world. According to Eric Thornton, we need to look at people in the range of sensitivity being old souls and younger souls. Younger souls would be less sensitive and aware of the things around them.

“The way I describe it is they would have a small radar dish. The people that are sensitive have a large radar dish. Every person is in a different class,” said Eric Thorton.

He adds, “If you have a large radar dish, you’re doing to have to take in way more information. Even the sound of the way people talk to you will draw a different way of you absorbing it. Like anger. You can feel it before it even happens. The computer can pick up that frequency so we can read the frequency.”

Four Levels

In the energy exchange, Eric Thorton says four significant areas spell our energy boundaries. It’s here where we can look at the different responses in those four areas which are daily, institutional, contractor and regret levels.

“The daily level is our interaction with everybody every day. Apparently, positive and negative interactions have different yet significant effects on our hormones,” said Eric Thorton.

Thought Forms

Eric Thorton says talk therapy is one way to level out our hormones. If you do something that’s not particularly pleasant, pull your energy back. This daily or everyday level applies to everything we do.

“If someone comes in here and I work with them, when they leave, I give them their energy back. Not the energy that we got rid of. We do this with all types of energy,” Eric Thorton said.

He adds, “If you’re taking a lot of information, you’re trying to get serotonin and dopamine from your interactions. When you find yourself in a challenging situation, visualize the energy and send it back out. That is a thought form.”

Eric Thorton says thought forms are the energy our brain created. It can be peculiar. We need to consider that these thought forms are bombarding us at all times. And they stress us. Whether we’re aware of them or not. And that stress level can be recreated all the time, all day long.

Stress and Paranoia

Stress and paranoia involve another set of energy boundaries. When we are stressed, Eric Thorton reveals it means our subconscious mind has gone through the entire scenario. It happens so fast, and it comes out of you whether you’re covering it up consciously or not.

Eric Thorton also says paranoia is also a thought form. If you have enough thought form of paranoia and you haven’t done anything about it, the thought form is going to build up enough to attract its possession of paranoia. Then you become a paranoid person.

“You open more doors of energy to come in. When a possession comes in, you think the energy of what you’re hearing is the inner voice that use your brain power to influence you,” said Eric Thorton.

Anger, Suicide, and Frustration

Other significant negative emotions that we have to keep in check are things like suicidal thoughts, anger, and frustration. The energy surrounding these emotions are strong and will most likely lead to something bad if not addressed.

The human body is designed to create filters for different situations. Eric Thorton says we develop these filters for anger in particular due to our biological make-up. That energy of anger makes your anger so bad.

“And when you learn about your anger, and you learn about what happened to you, you can heal the wound. It inspires you to heal,” Eric Thorton said.

Creating Something

Eric Thorton says the contractor level, in particular, is everything we create. It’s when we put our life into everything we do with our hands and our voice. You have to learn to write, learn to think in everything you create.

For example, before you press send, or before you file the document, you look at it and pull the energy out of it. Then it comes back to you. You depend on your brain and your history to keep the show going.

Overeating

Even how much we eat says a lot about our energy boundaries. There’s a mental, psychological and emotional factor around food.

“Are you allergic to food? We crave what we are allergic to.  You have to see what the components that are causing the behavior that they don’t want,” said Eric Thorton. “You also have to consider an individual’s ability to change their meal pathways slowly. The bigger brain has sound and sight. The digestive brain has feelings.”

Spirits and Healing

The pain and level of possession can affect your energy. For example, the energy of a poltergeist can control every aspect of your body. It changes your personality. A ghost can also influence your energy field.

“If you can make it safe for people to explore who they are on a soul level, that’s when they can get through the human drama and come out on the other side of the sphere,” Eric Thorton said.

Utilizing Your Gift

There are a select few who have been blessed with an extraordinary gift. Their senses are way above the rest. However, some do not know how to use it properly. Hence, it is essential to be aware of how we use our gift to make sure it does not cause pain or harm to yourself and others.

“Some people have gifts like the gift of sight. You can experience things that can break your brain. So, you have to be psychologically ready for that,” explains Eric Thorton. “And anyone who says he wants it is not psychologically ready. That is the first dead giveaway. You learn techniques and get certificates to say you mastered something.”

Karma

If something changes in a person’s life, the guides will create karma. Generally, karma also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect. This is where the intent and actions of an individual can influence their future.

Good intent and good deeds lead to good karma and future happiness. On the other hand, bad intent and bad acts contribute to bad karma and suffering in the future.

“I live it, too. I have made serious errors and judgment because I was taught incorrect information. And I have to admit those errors. It gets worse when you deny it,” said Eric Thorton.

Elise Museles And Ashley James

Everyone has a food story. To those who don’t know what a food story is, it’s mainly about eating psychology and how we look at food. My guest today, Elise Museles, is a Certified Eating Psychology and Nutrition Expert and will show us how to have a healthy relationship with food.

Childhood Years

When Elise Museles was young, she would eat when she was hungry and not think twice about all the fresh food available. When she was nine years old, she went to the doctor’s office with her mom. There she heard her mom whispering with the doctor.

Elise Museles was then told that if she loses five pounds, she can get my ears pierced which she wanted so badly then. So, at nine years old, Elise Museles went on her first diet. She exercised as well and eventually lost weight.

Around the same time, Elise Museles’ dad had a habit of sleepwalking and eating. So, they tried to remedy it by locking up the fridge. From that experience, Elise Museles thought that food is best kept under lock and key. And it’s something that is needed to be controlled.

“I tried every diet and outsourced my inner guidance. It was all about what were the experts saying. I had that whole cortisol effect,” recalls Elise Museles.

Defining Moments

Elise Museles eventually went to law school, practiced immigration law but was still interested in Nutrition. After she had kids, Elise Museles ended up not practicing law and pursued Nutrition instead.

Elise Museles says her defining path was when I met her boyfriend who eventually became her husband. However, because he was uncomfortable watching Elise Museles not having fun with food, they broke up.

“I went back to California where I was from. And that’s when I knew I had to heal my relationship with food. So, I turned to a more vegan lifestyle and started cooking for myself. We got back together, got married and had children,” Elise Museles shared.

Elise Museles’ second defining moment was when she got pregnant and had to learn about this whole listen to your body thing. She was vegan at the time and recalled craving turkey.

“It was a battle versus my head and my body. I had to start to listen to my body, and I felt so much better,” said Elise Museles. “Then I realized also that I couldn’t pass down an unhealthy food story to my children.”

Pursuing Nutrition

Elise Museles left her law career to pursue Nutrition. She wanted to help other people become comfortable with their food choices and make food less of a drama. She eventually got certified in Holistic Health, worked a lot with people with what was on their plate.

“It’s not about telling people what to eat. There’s something else. And that’s when I turned to get certified in Eating Psychology. It was a huge game changer in my journey, my own food story and the way I could help and serve people,” said Elise Museles.

The biggest thing Elise Museles learned was about how our thoughts can impact our digestion, metabolism, and pleasure. You are what you eat, but you also are what you think.

“So, I knew I wanted to help people shift their minds. Looking back, I realized our food stories aren’t our own. Food Story also a part of the people that we share our meals with,” said Elise Museles.

Kale and Chocolate

Elise Museles says she was the kale and her husband was the chocolate. She claims she didn’t like chocolate until she met her husband. Now Elise Museles eats dark chocolate every day. And she can see how they became kale and chocolate together.

“It’s proof that whether you are aware or not, your food story is being shared. And you are picking on the food story of other people along the way, too,” said Elise Museles.

Where To Start

We have complex and layered relationships. So sometimes, Elise Museles tells people to start by making their kitchen more of a sanctuary. Ultimately, you want your kitchen to be a place where you are excited about being there. And that the food in there is going to help you make the choices that you know will make you feel good.

“Seeing things organized makes you feel good. You want food that makes you happy in there,” Elise Museles said. “And what makes you happy is what makes you feel good.  It’s pretty hard to create a meal unless you have all the foundations right at your disposal.”

She adds, “It does require some work at the beginning, but it is so worth it. Use Nature as your guide, and it will answer the question of what you will eat or at least get you started.”

Food Guilt

Instead of feeling guilty about something, Elise Museles advises to get curious instead of judging yourself. She says this is a huge part of creating a healthy relationship with food and with yourself. Because when you can put on that detective hat, you don’t wait too long in between meals. And being curious is a great way to be able to change those unhealthy habits.

“The guilt is a cycle that serves no productive purpose. I think we create food guilt because of all the rules that we set up for ourselves. And the labels of good and bad. There is no such thing as a perfect diet,” said Elise Museles. 

Furthermore, Elise Museles says guilt damages you emotionally. It also has an impact on our physiology. When we have negative thoughts, that’s when our cortisol levels jump. A lot of guilt and shame comes from the internal dialogue that we’re having with ourselves.

“So be aware how you are talking to yourself. Having a conversation with yourself when you’re not in the moment helps you be equipped to have the same conversation with yourself when you are in the moment,” Elise Museles explains.

Knowing Your Food Story

Elise Museles didn’t realize the depth of her food story or precisely what her food story was until she started doing the work. She called it a food story because a story has a flow. It’s constantly evolving.

“And I like for people to start thinking how they are, how they eat and how they think about food as part of their story. I think it brings a little bit more energy to food and the way we feel about it,” Elise Museles said.

In starting your food story right, Elise Museles advises that first, you have to slow down. There’s no way you could recognize or realize what the habits that aren’t serving you until you can slow down and create that awareness is.

“When you slow down, you can take a deep breath and look at yourself more objectively.  Sit at the table one or two meals a day,” said Elise Museles. “It makes you realize that you can have such a huge impact on the choices that you make and the way you feel after a meal.”

She adds, “If you care about your health, it is something that you have to make a priority. And if that means scheduling it into your calendar, do that first step.”

Learning How To Cook

Elise Museles recommends making cooking as simple as possible because she believes that people then become empowered.

“Smoothies in the morning are not very hard. Start simple and basic and keep going. Have realistic expectations,” Elise Museles said. 

She adds, “Cooking is healing. It is healthier for you and saves money. If you care about your health, it is something that you have to make a priority. The greatest gift you can give your kids is teaching them how to cook.” 

Food Choices

Elise Museles loves sweet potatoes. They are great for serotonin production. To make it easier, she says you can make a sweet potato dish ahead of time like meal prepping on Sunday.

“I have two recipes on my website. One is a fiesta one which has tomatoes, zucchini, and corn. I use black beans as a protein source. You can sauté all the filling and add some cilantro or jalapeno as a topping,” suggests Elise Museles. 

She adds, “The other is Moroccan spice. Other spices you can use are cumin and turmeric. Again, sauté whatever vegetables but I do a Moroccan spice chickpea with it. It’s an easy dinner to make in 30 minutes and have some leftover for the rest of the week.”

Elise Museles says soups, on the other hand, are very forgiving. She also stressed the importance of teaching people the whole concept of meal prep and having food ready and waiting.

“It’s such a great way to go into your week. I have a ton of soup recipes and topping that list is my Coconut Curry Soup. Because it’s easy and it’s fun, warming, has spices and anti-inflammatory. So, if you want to protect your immune system it has it all,” Elise Museles recommends.

For a quick snack or dessert, Elise Museles suggests sautéing apples with some coconut oil. Then add some cinnamon and a little drizzle of nut butter. Elise Museles sometimes tops it with raspberries. She says it’s so empowering to think about what food can do for you and not to you.

Dr. Carolyn McMakin And Ashley James

We’re back with the author of the book, The Resonance Effect. Still talking about how frequency specific microcurrent is changing medicine, The Resonance Effect author Dr. Carolyn McMakin will expound on how it can make a significant change in our life.

Seeing Patterns

Dr. Carolyn McMakin says the Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) community has been doing this for 22 years. They started treating pain and then in 2000; they found out they could address the spinal cord.

In 2002, Dr. Carolyn McMakin started teaching stroke patients. They eventually also found out they could treat the nervous system as well as the immune system and the gut.

“With chronically ill patients, certain patterns become apparent. Autoimmune disease is where your immune system has decided that your connective tissue and the capillaries belong to somebody else,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

She adds, “They get incredibly inflamed, and because of the inflammation, they scar. We have frequencies to reduce inflammation and dissolve scar tissue.”

Trauma

Dr. Carolyn McMakin read something in the past that when you have a stressful event, you don’t want your heart rate to be slow and immune system suppressed. So, the nervous system fixes that.

“It’s not a coincidence that 80% or fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and chronically ill patients have a history of early heart childhood trauma before the age of 7,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin said. “That mid-brain sets the fire and threshold much lower. It takes almost nothing to set off the stress signals in the middle of the brain.”

Infectious agents

Dental infections and mold infections jack up the immune system. But Dr. Carolyn McMakin says they have frequencies that are alleged for infectious agents. And there are frequencies for certain parasites and certain bacteria.

“But I don’t want to withhold appropriate medical intervention on the off chance that a frequency is going to kill this bug. People die of infections. It’s not safe and responsible,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Ultimately, Dr. Carolyn McMakin says it’s about how you survive long-term because her goal is to treat everyone who wants to be addressed and teach practitioners who can provide the treatment.

“It takes research and case reports published before you can even do clinical trials. It takes research to get to move the needle. And to move the information forward into the standard practice,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin said.

Heavy Metals

In 1999, Dr. Carolyn McMakin treated someone for mercury. After 10 minutes, he felt better. But on the next treatment which lasted 40 minutes, he was sick as he’s ever been. This taught Dr. Carolyn McMakin that the frequencies for heavy metals, in particular, have to be used with a combined and collaborative approach.

“Heavy metals are tricky. There are frequencies for organic toxins and regular toxins, inorganic toxins, and certain poisons. Toxicity and inflammation will change a huge number of symptoms,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Furthermore, she explains that when you treat somebody for toxicity, they don’t have detox reactions. They don’t get sick.

“Organic toxins will slide right into the membrane and lay in the membrane. When you get this heavy organic chemical that lays in this membrane, and it tips the access of this receptor, it changes it. So now the cell doesn’t work right. Because this toxin changes the receptor orientation configuration,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin said.

The Resonance Effect Book

The Resonance Effect is available on Amazon, or a signed copy can be purchased at www.frequencyspecific.com. The Resonance Effect tells the story of how FSM was developed and how is changing patient’s lives.

Frequency Specific Seminars teaches the FSM technique in four-day courses around the US, the UK, and Germany. You can take the course in person or on DVD. Sign up for the course or find a practitioner on www.frequencyspecific.com.

“I wrote the history chapter of The Resonance Effect between December 2015 to March 2016. And I started teaching seminars,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin recalled.

She adds, “I was supposed to write again in June or July of 2016. It was due in September. I still had chapters 3 to 9 of The Resonance Effect to write. So, I went to Colorado and holed up there to write six chapters and eight days.”

Life Changing

The effect of frequencies and resonance is profound and life-changing. Dr. Carolyn McMakin says there is a new way of treating pain and other conditions that are comfortable and safe. It’s worth learning if you’re a practitioner and it’s worth trying if you’re a patient.

Dr. Carolyn McMakin says you can get rid of the trigger points with the frequencies and the microcurrent. But they’re going to come back if you don’t think about why it happened. So that is usually beyond the capacity of the average layperson.

“The frequencies are very specific. You want the frequency to pulse. Because otherwise, the body gets bored with it. And some people find that if you are in the same frequency over a long period, the body tends to ignore it,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Frequency Mats

The Bemer mat or Pulse EMF mats provide a magnetic field that pulses. Where anytime you have a magnetic pulse, you move an electron. Moving an electron creates a magnetic field. Moving magnetic fields move electrons.

These devices reduce inflammation and increase ATP production. Dr. Carolyn McMakin says that’s why people feel better. But it doesn’t do what FSM does.

Training People

Dr. Carolyn McMakin started training Chiropractors and Naturopaths. Her team also train Acupuncturists. Medical physicians, on the other hand, have certain constraints based on what they call is the standard of care. But in 2000, Dr. Carolyn McMakin started getting medical physicians that were trained in functional medicine. And that is a perfect combination.

“We train nurses, and in certain states, massage therapists can use it. But they have a little bit of trouble keeping up because they’re not allowed to diagnose,” explains Dr. Carolyn McMakin. “And their knowledge of anatomy is not as detailed as people that have been through the more rigorous and longer training.”

Dr. Carolyn McMakin and her team also train athletic trainers. And they have devices with over 200 NFL and NHL athlete. There’s not much with NBA players, but some pro golfers and weight lifters also use FSM.

“It’s just not right at FSM is the best-kept secret in the country. So, getting the word out is the next step. I spent 22 years building a foundation of credibility and well-trained practitioners, proper equipment and reproducible results so that now when we get the word out, patients can find a trained practitioner,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

She adds, “FSM means hope. It may not be a hundred percent, but it means that there’s an opportunity for a new way of looking at things and a new way of treating things to contribute to the patient’s comfort and well-being. FSM is changing medicine one patient at a time. My job is to change patient’s lives one practitioner at a time.”

Dr. Carolyn McMakin And Ashley James

Healing with chronic pain is possible with the Resonance Effect. To those who have not heard of this, the Resonance Effect utilizes frequencies to address a lot of health issues. Hence my guest, Dr. Carolyn McMakin, is the best resource to explain how the Resonance Effect work.

The Resonance Effect can have positive results on health problems like fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, sports injuries, inflammation, trigger points, shingles, autoimmune, rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma. This was after Dr. Carolyn McMakin discovered a type of methodology that helps tissue to heal and relieve chronic persistent pain.

the resonance effect

Early Years

Dr. Carolyn McMakin taught the Resonance Effect it for the first time in 1997. She started treating chronic pain patients and around 4,000 practitioners worldwide.

But before diving into a career centering on healing people using the Resonance Effect, Dr. Carolyn McMakin recalled the time when she was 39 years old, married and with kids who were 3 and seven years old.

Living in San Diego at that time, her husband was planning to go to Portland to pursue studies in a chiropractic college. But Dr. Carolyn McMakin also had an interest in medicine.

Making Her Path

Before she married, Dr. Carolyn McMakin became a pharmaceutical salesman at age 25 after graduating from college. She had a couple of sales jobs in 1971, and the time, there were only three pharmaceutical salesmen in the country in the country.

Dr. Carolyn McMakin spent so many years selling drugs. One day, a friend encouraged her that she should pursue medicine as well.  Dr. Carolyn McMakin didn’t take it seriously until the next day at Sunday Church. The sermon was about vocations, so Dr. Carolyn McMakin took it as a sign to go to chiropractic school as well.

Dr. Carolyn McMakin was lucky her father provided enough income so that she could start pre-med in two years in Portland. She was 40 years old. Although she was qualified to get into a medical school a couple of years later, Dr. Carolyn McMakin dropped out of school to take care of her mother who had pancreatic cancer.

Dr. Carolyn McMakin, later on, got divorced and took five years to finish chiropractic college. Graduating at 47, Dr. Carolyn McMakin started a practice utilizing a machine using frequencies to address health issues.

Discovering The Machine

In 1934, there was a decree that drugs and surgery were the only legitimate tools of medicine. According to Dr. Carolyn McMakin, herbs, homeopathy and nutrition, and electromagnetic therapies were outlawed. And any medical physician that use them would lose their license to practice.

In 1946, an osteopath and naturopath named Harry Van Gelder found a machine with a list of frequencies that was made in 1922. He taught himself how to use it. Eventually, tumors and cancers were easy for him to address.

Drs. Carolyn McMakin and George Douglas started using specific frequencies of microcurrent in 1994. It had been previously researched by Harry Van Gelder, for use on different health issues. 

Gaining Traction

In 1995, the use of frequencies was used on Dr. Carolyn McMakin’s patients with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain. She did a continuing lecture at Portland state and became the local expert.

By September 1996, outcomes of fibromyalgia and myofascial pain were too good to be true, so Dr. Carolyn McMakin had to find out if it was reproducible.

She taught for the first time in January 1997 to 20 to 25 students. About 6 to 8 of them bought the precision microcurrent machine.

“In June 1997, we knew it was reproducible. So, I kept teaching it. I published the first paper in 1998 because I came out of allopathic medicine and I published 50 cases of chronic head, neck and face pain,” shares Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

She adds, “It took 11 sessions in 8 weeks to get their pain down below the 1.5. And that was because I didn’t know what I was doing. Now it’s much easier because we know that we have to treat the underlying pathology that drives the muscles to be tight.”

More Discoveries

In 1998, Dr. Carolyn McMakin stumbled on the way they treat neck pain. She says there was a list of conditions that you put on one channel and there was a list of tissues that you put on the other channel.

“So myofascial pain is from the muscle belly, fascia and the connected tissue. Nerve pain is from the nerve. There is a frequency for the nerve,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin explains.

Dr. Carolyn McMakin also revealed that in the early 90s, the physical therapy community had been told that because you couldn’t feel it, frequencies couldn’t be doing anything, and it was not effective. So, it fell out of favor.

“Just the current flow increases ATP or energy production in cells by 500% in something like 30 minutes. Between 500 and 1,000 microcurrents, the ATP production leveled off,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

She adds, “And by the time you get to tens level current that you can feel, you’re reducing ATP or energy in the cells. So, you can’t feel it. When the frequency is correct, people feel an induced euphoria.”

Treating Patients

In 1999, Dr. Carolyn McMakin was asked to join a medical pain management group in northwest Portland. It was a whole new level of patient complexity. It was the first place where Dr. Carolyn McMakin, a patient with full body pain.

“I looked on the list, and there was a frequency for the spinal cord. So, I put 40 hertz on channel A and 10 hertz on channel B. She got relaxed and got so floaty. The pain receded from her feet up,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin. “The session lasted 60 minutes. She came back a week later, and I treated her five to six more times in my clinic. But she lived far so she stopped coming.”

Dr. Carolyn McMakin got even more interested in learning more and dug into medical literature. Here she found out that the discs in our spine are chemically active. They are inflammatory. And when you reduce the inflammation, the pain goes down.

“I’m pretty skeptical, but it took five years treating roughly 70 to 90 patient visits a week. I had around 30,000 to 40,000 individual treatments to believe that the frequencies always do what they are described as doing. So, if I make a choice that doesn’t work, it’s not that the frequencies aren’t working. It’s that I picked the wrong thing,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin said.

She adds, “Over time, we found out what we can treat and can’t treat, frequencies to reduce inflammation and dissolve scar tissue are the ones most reliable. Then there are frequencies on a whole additional sheet from another one of Harry’s list that we teach.”

Dr. Carolyn McMakin also shares that she started treating sports injuries as well, after teaching a sports seminar in 2003. She even ended up treating members of the San Francisco 49ers and produced significant results with zero swelling and zero bruising.

Rife Machine Vs. Biological Resonance

Royal Raymond Rife was an American scientist who invented the Rife machine. The Rife machine produces energy similar to radio waves.

Some people say that Rife machines help cure cancer and treat other conditions like Lyme disease and AIDS. Royal Raymond Rife believed bacteria or viruses inside tumors emitted specific electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs). Hence, Royal Raymond Rife developed a microscope that could detect EMFs from bacteria and viruses by the color of their auras.

“The lessons of Rife is the reason why I started teaching it. Because they can take out Rife by taking out one guy,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin. “So by the time I got to 200 practitioners, I figured we were too good to stop. Rife didn’t publish anything, so I started publishing in 1998. Ultimately, I kept teaching it.”

On the other hands, Dr. Carolyn McMakin says the basic principle of biological resonance is the same as the way the Rife frequencies work. But their frequencies are below 1,000 hertz, all just directly on the body.

“And because I don’t want to end up living in Mexico or the Caribbean, we do not treat cancer. We can get rid of cancer pain, and I can get rid of nausea from chemotherapy, prevent scarring from radiation burns, and treat to keep the quality of life better with cancer,” Dr. Carolyn McMakin said.

Cell Membranes

According to Dr. Carolyn McMakin, drugs and nutrient intake affects the cells. It changes the membrane receptors, and that changes the way the cell works inside. Frequencies affect the same receptors with a signal. And the frequencies act as if they are changing the cell membrane receptor function and into our cellular function.

“The only thing that changed in four to six hours are the genes inside the cell. Some genes are turned on immediately by bleeding, inflammation, tissue fragments, torn tissue. And some genes are turned on instantly in the first two hours and those things are off at hour six,” explains Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Fatigue

There are so many causes for fatigue. So, Dr. Carolyn McMakin says the assumption that fatigue is mitochondrial dysfunction, is completely invalid. Cardiovascular disease causes fatigue. Sleep apnea causes fatigue. Even infection from root canals, viral infection, infected gall bladder or pathogen in the gut causes inflammation and then causes fatigue as well.

“I want something I can see, something I can measure, something that will change patient’s symptoms and pain,” said Dr. Carolyn McMakin.

Dr. Stacey Shillington And Ashley James

Many of you may have heard of Holistic Dermatology, and some of you may have not. Holistic Dermatology indeed exists. And it’s all about healing your skin with Naturopathic Medicine. To explain how Holistic Dermatology works, join me and my guest, Dr. Stacey Shillington in this episode.

Acne Struggles

Dr. Stacey Shillington grew up in Alberta in the 80s and dealt with acne. At the time, she had no idea what Naturopathic Medicine or Holistic Dermatology was. As a teenager, she tried topical creams, and her doctor even put her on the birth control pill to control her acne.

For a few years, everything was fine. But in her late 20s, Dr. Stacey Shillington wanted to go off birth control. She got into yoga to get into her body and get interested in health.

Eventually, Dr. Stacey Shillington decided to get off the birth control pill. As a result, her skin completely flared up. She recalls being in Asia at the time traveling the world.

When this happened, it changed Dr. Stacey Shillington’s personality. She was outgoing before the flare up and turned to hide away from the world. Dr. Stacey Shillington was shocked at how much her acne changed her personality. Then when she went back to Toronto, Dr. Stacey Shillington couldn’t face going back to her old job nor meet her friends.

“Doctors suggested many things. Looking back, I’m surprised I didn’t go for those options because I was so desperate. But something inside me said that wasn’t the solution,” recalls Dr. Stacey Shillington. 

She adds, “I spent a ton of money trying everything out there. So, I spent all my time researching skin care. Not much made my skin better. I was married when I went off the birth control pill, and my skin flared up. Then I ended up getting divorced.” 

Seeking Natural Remedies

Somebody then suggested to Dr. Stacey Shillington to see a Naturopathic Doctor. The Naturopathic Doctor wasn’t able to completely clear her skin, but the doctor really changed Dr. Stacey Shillington’s philosophy on health care and eventually fast-tracked her journey to learn about Holistic Dermatology.

“She said my skin is like this because there is an imbalance in my body. And the way to heal your skin is to balance your body and find the root cause of your acne,” shares Dr. Stacey Shillington. “So, I went back to school to become a Naturopathic Doctor, so I could learn how to do this.”

Realizations

Dr. Stacey Shillington realized acne and skin care problems are debilitating to people. They affect our quality of life. And the solutions out there are not solving the problem. There’s a huge void. So that is what inspired Dr. Stacey Shillington to go back to school and learn all about Holistic Dermatology.

“My whole career as a Naturopath has been focused on treating the skin, learning how to heal the skin, really helping people get their lives back and living their lives fully,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said.

More To Learn

A year after graduation, Dr. Stacey Shillington started working in a dermatology clinic in Toronto. She worked there for about 11 years. Time and work allowed her to become proficient in her career.

“When I was a Naturopathic Doctor studying, they always said the gut and the skin are intimately related. And it’s true. Your skin is often a reflection of what’s going on in your gut,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington.

Dr. Stacey Shillington also said that there are tons of research in the last 6 to 10 years about the microbiome. There are a hundred trillion microbes that live in our gut and on our skin. And when there’s an imbalance in the microbiome in the gut, eventually that imbalance is going to present itself on the skin.

Right Diet

According to Dr. Stacey Shillington, changing your diet and eating foods that are less inflammatory is essential. This is to heal your skin and to reduce inflammation in the gut. Healing gut is critical to improving your skin.

“You can be eating the very best diet, but if your gut is in trouble if you have an overgrowth of certain pathogens, that has to be addressed as well in addition to changing the diet. This is to heal the skin fully,” Dr. Stacey Shillington advises. 

She adds, “I get my patients into an anti-inflammatory diet. There are certain foods out there that cause inflammation more than other foods. Dairy is a very inflammatory food especially for people who have acne.”

Recommended Foods

Sugar is a drug in itself. And Dr. Stacey Shillington says it impairs insulin sensitivity. It leads to high androgens and again points to acne. High sugar fruits, maple syrup, and honey also have the same effect.

“It’s not that you can never eat these foods again. But you cannot eat these foods while you are healing the gut and reducing inflammation in the body,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington.

Dr. Stacey Shillington on the contrary, reveals that berries are amazing for acne patients. It is because berries reduce inflammation and have a low glycemic index. They’re not likely going to spike insulin levels. 

“I also love cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, arugula, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts detoxify the liver. Food is a fantastic medicine, and it can help the body function so much more efficiently. It sets the stage for diving in to start healing the skin,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said. 

Other Foods To Avoid

Dr. Stacey Shillington shares that doctors at the turn of the century used to call acne diabetes of the skin. So, treating acne as a metabolic condition is often one of the keys to solving it.

“I love berberine. It is amazing for acne. Not only does it help regulate the blood sugar, but it also helps support the liver, and it is also anti-microbial. So, it helps solve any dysbiosis in the gut,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said.

According to Dr. Stacey Shillington, chocolate is so inflammatory for people with skin problems because it contains theobromine. She says there was a May 2014 study where it showed that theobromine could increase acne. Thus, dairy, sugar, and chocolate are the foods that should be looked at if you have inflammatory skin disorders.

The other food as well that many people find surprising is oatmeal. Dr. Stacey Shillington says oatmeal contains an element that decreases sex hormones binding globulin in the blood.

“And when you have decreased levels of it, you have more testosterone in the blood. Testosterone is an androgen and contributes to the production of acne,” explains Dr. Stacey Shillington.

To get started, Dr. Stacey Shillington recommends that for three days, eat vegetables, low glycemic index fruits, lean proteins and see how you feel. If you feel better than you did when eating grains, that is a sign that you need to spend some time not eating grains while you are healing and balancing your body.

“And I’m not saying forever because some starchy carbs are essential. Gluten is also so inflammatory. I can’t heal skin when people are eating gluten,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington.

Recommended Oils

Dr. Stacey Shillington said when there are too many omega-6 fatty acids in the body, it’s highly inflammatory. It is found in soybean oil, canola oil, sunflower oil, peanut oil, corn oil, a lot of other veggie oils.

Instead, focus on oils like olive oil which has omega-9 fatty acids, avocado oil, and coconut oil which is saturated fat. Also eat foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, mackerel, sardines, organic eggs, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and flax seeds. Dr. Stacey Shillington also advises to be aware of the oils we are using so we can reduce inflammation.

“Olive oil should be used raw. When it’s heated up at a certain temp, it starts to oxidize. That will create inflammation. So, cook with avocado or coconut oil. Fish oils can be beneficial, and it can make a difference on the skin,” Dr. Stacey Shillington said. 

She adds, “But for acne, I would never recommend fish oils. It’s one of the supplements that will contribute to acne. It’s much better to address other skin conditions like psoriasis.”

Dr. Stacey Shillington also mentions that every single cell of our body is composed of fatty acids. So, to have a healthy body, we have to make sure those cell membranes are indeed nourished.

“There’s a moisture barrier on the skin, and it looks like a brick wall. If the fatty acids are deficient, that brick wall is going to start to break down,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington. “And things that are not supposed to get into the body are going to get into the body and vice versa. So, it’s important to keep that moisture barrier intact to half healthy skin.”

Genes

We all manifest imbalances differently. Dr. Stacey Shillington says it’s based on our genes. But 90% of our health is determined by our lifestyle. Diet, sleep, and stress can also improve or worsen our skin condition.

“When you’re stressed and prone to acne, three different biochemical pathways that are activated in the body that contribute to acne,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington. 

She adds, “Exercise is also an important thing. Mindset is also huge. Positive mindset creates resilience against stress.”

Contributing Factors

How much sunlight, regular eating, sleeping, and wake times are also factors that contribute to healthy skin. Dr. Stacey Shillington also says relationships and resentments play a significant role as well.

Our emotions also play a significant role in good skin health. Meditation is essential, and Dr. Stacey Shillington says skin health is better when people practice self-love. You need to be relaxed for your body to heal. 

“Make sure your liver is supported, do detoxes and work on your gut. Try to work on your gut before you get off birth control pills. You want to be balanced as possible,” advises Dr. Stacey Shillington. 

She adds, “When you’re on birth control, you’re not making any natural estrogen or progesterone. It’s shutting down your natural hormone production. And it’s also suppressing androgens which are the hormones that are going to cause acne.”

Dr. Stacey Shillington recommends Manuka honey to cleanse. She also said that if you don’t have a microbiome that disrupted, you can use oil to cleanse, which is very beautiful and nourishing.

“If you do have a microbiome imbalance, which will result in fungal acne, use something like micellar water. Cleansing should be incredibly gentle. For moisture, use aloe vera gel or jojoba,” Dr. Stacey Shillington advises. 

She adds, “In the palm of your hand, put about a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and a teaspoon of the oil of your choice. Mix it vigorously with a finger for 30 seconds until it turns into a lotion. Apply to face and add essential oils if you like.”

Skin Care Classes

Dr. Stacey Shillington has some amazing classes that will teach you how to take care of your skin. Topping off the list is her 7-week Clear Skin Program which you can also sign up via my link www.learntruehealth.com/clearskin.  There’s a new module each week, and the lessons are simple yet effective.

Another excellent program is Dr. Stacey Shillington’s 8-Week Anti-Aging Skin Care Program. Like the 7-week program, it’s very holistic and effective as well so make sure to check it out on her website.

“I want to change the way the skin is approached. My experience and the treatments available right now are just not helping people and often making skin situations even worse. My mission is to help change that. Get some real healing going on with our skin,” said Dr. Stacey Shillington.
