Like so many of us, Christina Roulund was insecure about her body. So she got breast implants at 23, hoping it would be a miracle worker on her self-esteem. Back then, there was no real data about the surgery: it was supposed to be completely safe. And for five years, she was perfectly ok (even though the boost in confidence really only lasted a few months).

 

But things started going wrong… (~Exhaustion, forgetfulness, depression, anxiety~). She put it down to being a new mom, but over the years it got even worse… (~Hair loss, joint pain, no libido, out of control hormones, shortness of breath~). She tried everything she could: fully detoxing her diet, ridding her home of anything toxic. But nothing worked…

 

Then, one evening, something on the news changed her life forever. Four women were being interviewed who had recently gotten explants (breast implant removals) to heal the same symptoms she was experiencing. They’d been suffering from breast implant illness – an issue now recognized by an increasing number of practitioners. The toxins Christina’s body was reacting to were actually coming from her implants.

 

She decided there and then to get them removed. Christina has been explanted over 6 months now, and feels like a brand-new woman. She has energy, motivation, and is symptom-free. And her looks? Christina just wanted to get her life back. “If I’m flat, I’m ok with that”. Power to you, sister. 👍

 

 

Why do so many of us decide to go under the knife despite the risks? We do it to feel more whole, or womanly, or confident. We want to match up to the unrealistic ideals on TV or social media. But surgery is a short-term fix. Instead, we need to start by loving ourselves exactly as we are right now.

 

Christina is on a mission to radically change thousands of lives by spreading the word on the **TRUTH** behind breast implants and their complications. As well as being a coach for binge and emotional eaters, she’s the founder of Size Happy, the hottest new self-love movement online. If you’re worried about your current implants, or thinking about getting implants and want to know more about them, you can email Christina at Christina@sizehappy.net.

Sometimes it takes a traumatic experience to make us WAKE UP and take health into our own hands.

 

That’s what happened to Adrienne. She was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease at just 11 years old. Back then, doctors didn’t know much about it, or even how to recognize it. Antibiotics weren’t working. But they rarely do, because Lyme’s disease is a spiral-shaped bacterium that confuses the body and can be complicated to heal.

 

But Adrienne’s mom did not give up. After two years, thanks to integrative medicine strategies like: 

  • whole foods diet
  • hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Adrienne was free from symptoms!

 

Fast-forward to college, Adrienne began eating the normal student diet…and lost her periods. Doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with her and told her to just go on the birth control pill. That wasn’t good enough for Adrienne. Again, she changed her diet, and again, food worked its magic. Her periods came back.

 

But it was a more traumatic event that made Adrienne want to become a board-certified patient advocate. Her mom suffered from severe mental health issues. She spent five years in and out of institutions, drugged up on anti-psychotics and other medications to counter the side effects, and eventually committed suicide.

 

Isn’t that the core problem with the health industry? Instead of looking at the patient and working out what might be causing the disease, doctors just throw pills at the problem. There’s no health freedom when holistic options are never even mentioned.

 

 

Adrienne knew from that moment on she needed to do something to change the medical system and help people wake up to the importance of diet and lifestyle.

 

So, just a year and a half ago, she launched WellBe, a content and learning platform dedicated to helping people prevent chronic health issues, or heal them if they arise. Check it out for in-depth articles, science wrap-ups and guides to prevent chronic health issues… including a Wine Guide. Or head to the WellBe store, where you can get natural lifestyle products tried and tested by Adrienne – including a must-have gadget for wine lovers.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 247:

  • Why antibiotics don’t work against Lyme disease
  • What your body is trying to tell you if your periods stop
  • Why this is a critical time for mental health
  • How loneliness contributes to disease
  • Why tribespeople live longer, healthier lives
  • The key ingredient in longevity
  • The treatments that actually works to heal Lyme’s disease

Something happens whenever we start dieting…

 

…we get so busy following the latest fitness and diet trends that we completely lose sight of the single most important thing about successful weight loss: WHO WE ARE.

 

Maybe it’s time to throw away what you think you know about dieting. It is true that almost every diet and fitness trend can be a path to weight loss. But the real question remains….is that trend meant to be YOUR path?

 

If you’re struggling to lose weight, it may be as simple as following the wrong method for you.

 

Christine Lusita may be an expert on fitness and weight loss now, but she struggled with her weight since the age of 13. Finding her path towards health and fitness was a marathon. She was a yoyo dieter, going all in on the latest diet & fitness trend, only to burn out. It wasn’t until she found a plan that was just right for her that she truly connected with her health and her body (and dieting felt easier than ever!).

 

 

Now she helps other people sprint towards their wellness goals. Christine has over 15 years of experience in the health and fitness industry and regularly appears on morning shows to promote the latest food & fitness trends that could end up being perfect for you! She also coaches clients to help them realign and accept who they are. For those just starting their journey of weight loss and acceptance, she even has the book The Right Fit Formula, which delves deep into using fitness & health strategies as a way to reach the best version of yourself…NOT to get abs like J-Lo and hate your life…

 

The book also helps match a health regiment to your personality. Are you a – ?

  • Leader
  • Socializer
  • Supporter
  • Planter

Really knowing what you are (and are not) is crucial, because what type of workout “works” for one personality type doesn’t for another. And if you want to really feel good while you’re working out, check out Christine’s ‘8os inspired fitness brand What A Feeling Athletic Wear – that’s how Christine wants people to feel after a workout. Why the 1980s? Because that decade felt like a more innocent, up-beat time, especially when it came to fitness. Her new line complements every body type and brings a splash of color, and joy, to your workouts. We love it!

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 246:

  • The secret factor in abundant health
  • How your personality gets in the way of successful dieting
  • Can clearing your physical space help you lose weight?
  • What happened when Christine, Suzy and Allison met Mario Lopez
  • Why Christine is obsessed with the 1980s
  • A 3-minute activity that will completely shift your mood
  • What happens when you repress emotions
  • The number ONE cause of all diet failures
  • Christine’s A-HA moment
  • Alli’s tips to let go of perfectionism

The Right Fit Formula

We all love a good outfit. But fashion is cruel to animals, cruel to people and cruel to the planet. Especially luxury fashion, which is synonymous with fur, cashmere, leather, angora and silk.

 

Can fashion ever be compassionate? Thanks to Delikate Rayne now it can.

 

Meg and Komie were raised vegetarian. From a very young age they understood that animals are not here for food. Also from a young age, they loved nothing more than to customize their outfits. As they started shopping, they found it nearly impossible to find clothes they liked that were also cruelty-free. That’s why they created Delikate Rayne, a 100% vegan, sustainable, luxury clothing line made in LA. Their mission: to make a positive impact and give back through something people love – great fashion!

 

 

What’s so wrong with fast fashion anyway?

  1. The impact on animals – It’s a myth that fur and leather are by-products of the meat industry. There are actually animals raised specifically for their furs, where they are confined in tiny cages, tortured and slaughtered for their skin.
  2. The impact on the environment – Constantly changing trends mean there is an incredible amount of waste. The process of dying fabrics pollutes water.
  3. The social impact – If you’re paying $10 for a t-shirt, how much is the person who made it getting paid?

 

The solution? Go for a brand that is vegan, affordable, sustainable AND gorgeous… we love Delikate Rayne’s fashion range because it ticks all these boxes.

 

Meg and Komie’s tips for green shopping and living:

  • Keep a reusable bottle (have a few so you always have one to hand)
  • Shop in thrift stores (have a clear idea of what you want and then go search for it)
  • Buy high-quality timeless pieces rather than an abundance of cheap clothes
  • Host a fashion pot-luck evening and swap clothes with your friends

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 245:

  • How to inject compassion into your shopping routine
  • How to avoid getting overwhelmed when you go cruelty-free
  • Strategies to veganize your wardrobe one step at a time
  • How fast fashion is destroying our ecosystems
  • The social impact of fast fashion
  • How Meg and Komie entered the fashion world without ever studying it
  • Meg and Komie’s secret to success

Diets don’t work. Neither do New Year’s resolutions. (sorry…)

 

Why? Too many people believe that if you lose weight, you’ll transform your life. In fact, you need to transform your life first, then the weight loss will happen.

 

Alli was a healthy plant-based holistic salad eater by day…. and sugar junkie by night. Sugar addiction ruled her life. Nothing she tried ever worked. Until she met David Zappasodi. Now, her cravings for sugar have disappeared.

 

David Zappasodi has been a healthcare professional specializing in weight loss for over 20 years. He uses radical methods. Instead of coaching people to find their why, and motivating them to change their habits, he tells his clients to stop exercising and eat the junk foods they crave several times a day.

 

It sounds nuts. But…. IT WORKS.

 

How do you transform your life first? You have to focus on the struggles that are preventing the weight loss, and then focus on the weight loss itself. To do this, David uses three brain flips that tackle cravings, overeating, and exercising.

 

 

Brain Flip Cravings

Cravings are like bullies. You have to stand up to them in a way that lets them know you’re not going to be pushed around. Trying to avoid bullies, or fight them, doesn’t work long-term. It’s the same with your cravings. You might try avoiding your cravings, but that doesn’t work. Eventually the cravings win. Then you indulge and feel guilty. The only way to free yourself is to eat the food you crave… but eat it in a different pattern.

 

Think about it. You’ve resisted for so long, then finally you give in. In that moment when you indulge, there is pleasure. This is the core point where things need to change. If you create pain in the moment of indulgence, then you begin to flip your brain to eradicate your desire for that particular food. How? By creating a pain tool. This is a recording of what could go wrong in your life if you don’t solve this issue, which you listen to while you eat the food. Over time, you stop associating indulging with pleasure, and the cravings subside.

 

Brain Flip Overeating:

The way David tackles overeating is to get his clients to split their usual portion into two plates. You eat the first one normally, but you eat the second portion while listening to another pain tool, so you learn to associate being overfull with being in pain. 

 

Brain Flip Exercise:

AKA the “body brain flip”. Now that the cravings and overeating are dealt with, it’s time to reprogram your brain to look at exercise in a completely new way. David gets his clients to create a vision tool – the opposite to a pain tool. Imagine the best that could happen to you as you transform your health and lose the weight, and listen to that audio several times a day to really connect with the feeling of joy. This turns around your usual thinking about exercise being a chore, into something you’re excited to do! 

 

Want more? Go back to Episode 233, where David delves deep into how the brain flip method frees you of chaotic or compulsive eating.

 

David’s tips to reduce your cravings:

  • If you’re really struggling – schedule a free call with David at www.brainflipweightloss.com/talk
  • Increase the enjoyment of healthy foods – for example listen to great music when you eat them
  • Don’t eat healthy foods while you’re stressed – it will create a negative association.
  • Try not to let indulging in the cravings to de-stress you. Relax first, and then indulge.
  • Junk food should not be used as a reward – ask yourself “how can I reward myself without eating junk food?”
  • Join David’s Facebook support group

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 243:

  • How to stop compulsive over-eating
  • Why don’t resolutions work?
  • How to turn your addiction into your greatest strength
  • How long it takes to brain flip your cravings
  • How to make exercise enjoyable… even if you hate it right now
  • Does your sensory brain have the capacity to change your life?
  • How David is ‘brain-flipping’ global obesity
  • How we create what we are, not what we want
  • David’s tips to reduce your cravings
  • Are you doing it wrong? David’s tips for manifestation that actually work

@31:10 It’s such a drastic shift

@42:08 That’s the great thing about the sensory brain

Just how powerful is your fork?

 

With it, you can save animals from factory farms. You can shift culture. You can stop rainforests from being chopped down. You can help communities. You can create the kind of world you want to live in.  The food revolution is a revolution you can fight peacefully, and everyone wins: the animals, the people, and our environment.

 

Food is both the foundation of sustainable health and of terrible diseases. Ocean Robbins witnessed both sides of food play out in his own family history. His grandfather was one of the founders of Baskin-Robbins. His dad refused to go into the business, and walked away from a path paved with gold and ice-cream. He moved to an island off Canada with his wife, built a log cabin, grew vegetables, practiced yoga several hours a day, and had a child: Ocean.

 

From this island, Ocean’s dad wrote the book Diet for a New America, which helped thousands of people rethink their food choices. One of his readers ended up being his own father, who, after years of eating a standard American diet, was at death’s door. But making the changes suggested in the book, he reversed his heart disease and diabetes, lost 30 pounds, and lived 19 more healthy years.

 

When Ocean was 16, inspired by his dad and grandfather, he founded a nonprofit called Yes, and traveled to 65 countries giving talks and helping young activists build a healthier world for future generations. It was during these travels that Ocean realized how much that food was the source of so much suffering: the torture of animals, the use of chemical poisons, and the subsidies supporting the unhealthiest of foods.

 

In 2012, Ocean joined forces with his dad and launched the Food Revolution Network, to promote healthy, sustainable food for everyone. They push for policy changes that could change our world. One of their goals is to make sure medical doctors get proper nutrition education. They also lobby to stop policies that support junk foods, and get the food industry to take health seriously.

 

But perhaps the most important goal is to share this life-boosting information with as many people as possible and help them put healthy change into action – not just for themselves, but for their community and the whole world.

 

 

We’re so excited to announce that Ocean’s new book 31-Day Food Revolution is out today!! It’s packed with information and a step by step plan to put new habits into action.

 

The 4 principles to starting your own Food Revolution:

  • Less sugar and processed junk
  • Less animal products
  • More whole plant foods (veg, greens, legumes, whole grains, fruits – lots of fiber)
  • Conscious sourcing – buy food that is organically, ethically, and fairly produced

 

How to be plant-based affordably:

  • Stop buying calories that are toxic (from junk foods)
  • Avoid food waste – plan ahead, cook up extra meals and freeze them
  • Eat out less
  • Buy the real superfoods – cabbage, carrots, onions, beans, quinoa, spices…

 

All these things put together can get you to ultimate vitality and help create a better world.

 

But it’s about more than just health. Food can also connect us. Ocean’s book gives tips to help you be a positive influencer, teach people about nutrition in a loving way, and how you can build a community. Because we are not lone wolves. We need community to thrive.

 

And for every copy of the book that’s ordered, Ocean will donate to Trees for the Future, a nonprofit that plants trees all over the world. Every time a new copy is ordered, they will plant an organic fruit or nut tree in a disadvantaged community. This means when you order Ocean’s new book, you participate in the food revolution right away.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 242:

  • Three strategies that prevent 90% of cancers
  • How the government is subsidizing our unhealthy lifestyles
  • Two simple steps that help your body process toxins
  • The scary truth about factory farmed meat
  • How much fiber you need
  • How Alli went to the next level of vitality

  • What community has to do with your health

World renowned keynote speaker, best-selling author, world traveler (and recently engaged in Bali!) Sahara Rose wasn’t always a glowing picture of health and success.

 

In fact, she went through a really tough time – she didn’t have periods, lost her hair, suffered from bloating and constipation. No one could find the cause or cure the problem. Until one day she read about the Vata Dosha – it was like reading her autobiography. Following Ayurvedic practices to bring her dosha back to balance, Sahara regained her health.

 

But it was hard – Ayurveda processes are old school, and many don’t work for today’s busy lifestyles. So Sahara redesigned these ancient practices to fit the modern world.

 

Her two books – The Idiot’s guide to Ayurveda and Eat Feel Fresh (with a foreword by Deepak Chopra!) – offer simple and easy to follow strategies to get your doshas, and your health, back into balance.

 

 

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is over 5,000 years old; it’s the world’s oldest heath system. It means “the knowledge of life.” Ayurveda involves your entire life in order to heal you: nutrition, digestion, self-care, movement, morning rituals, your environment, your relationships, and your purpose.  

 

What Dosha Are YOU?

Dosha means energy. In Ayurveda, we’re all made up of energies from the elements space, air, fire, water and earth. The three doshas are: Vata (air and space), Pita (fire and water) and Kapha (earth and water). See which dosha you are below:

 

Vata

Mind When Balanced: creative, artistic, go with the flow, visionary

Mind When Unbalanced: difficulty coming down to earth, anxiety, everything up in the air, not liking a set schedule

Body When Balanced: lean, flexible

Body When Unbalanced: cold skin, slow digestion, bloating, cracking joints, unbalanced appetite, dry skin

 

Pita

Mind When Balanced: feisty, high energy, driven, business-minded, regimented, likes routine, motivated

Mind When Unbalanced: angry, aggressive

Body When Balanced: strong and athletic

Body When Unbalanced: high risk of inflammation, heart burn, acne, rashes

 

Kapha

Mind When Balanced: calm, peaceful, very giving

Mind When Unbalanced: gives too much, unable to set boundaries, people pleaser

Body When Balanced: solid, endurance

Body When Unbalanced: lethargic and prone to increased mucous.  

 

We are all a combination of all three doshas, in varying amounts, though they change depending on your stage in life.

 

Ayurveda heals the doshas within us so that we can re-balance our health. To find out YOUR dosha, take the quiz on Sahara’s website.

 

How to Rebalance Your Dosha:

Vata = Warm, grounding foods – think roots! Stay away from excessively cold foods.

Pita = Cooling, alkalizing foods – more leafy greens, bitter veg, coconut. Avoid spicy foods.

Kapha = Stimulating foods – warming spices to rev up metabolism.

 

In her latest book Eat Feel Fresh, Sahara makes it easy to incorporate this ancient healing practice into your life with over 100(!) Ayurvedic plant-based recipes. Her other book, An Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda contains all the self-care and lifestyle strategies to take your health to the next level. Check out Sahara’s podcast, Highest Self.

 

Ayurvedic self-care 101:

  • Tongue scraping – helps your digestion & keeps your mouth fresh
  • Oil pulling followed by warm water and salt – swill oil (coconut, sesame) for 3 to 20 minutes.
  • Dry brush – brush your skin upwards towards your heart to remove dead skin cells.
  • Oil your body – give yourself a massage, hone in on the dry bits & show your body some love.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 241:

  • How you’re already practicing Ayurveda
  • What your dosha has to do with your routine
  • A personality test mixed with health and wellness
  • How to overcome negative kapha
  • How your lifestyle affects your dosha
  • The best foods to eat to re-balance your dosha
  • Two antidotes to a stressful lifestyle
  • Is our technology really making things easier?
  • When is healthy food not good for you?
  • Why a raw food diet isn’t always the best diet
  • Wellness tips you can benefit from, no matter what dosha you are
  • How your tongue communicates with your gut
  • Why traditional mouthwash is making your mouth worse
  • How to boost your immune system with one self-care habit

RISE AND BLOOM 6-WEEK WELLNESS MASTERMIND

 
Here’s what people are saying:
 

Participating in Allison Melody’s ‘Rise and Bloom’ Mastermind groups have been a total game changer for me.  That’s an overused term, I suppose, but in this case it completely applies.  Starting with the small group, day-long session in April of 2018, I received an incredible amount of information…but more than that, I left that experience with the confidence needed to kick my side hustle into full gear.

After attending Rise and Bloom in April, I was able to achieve the following:
Complete and Publish my second book
Feature my new book at a book signing event
Launch my own podcast
Develop a Group Coaching Program that will launch in 2019

That was after just one day of coaching, hot-seat, and networking with other “students” like me.  Imagine what a five week program could provide!

Having just wrapped up that five week program two days ago, my toolbox is full of the things I need to make 2019 a major success in my businesses.  Allison recruits the very best talent out there, from a variety of influencers who bring all their goods to the table for us students to devour.  I would leave each and every call feeling quite full, but not over stuffed.  Because it’s always a healthy meal when it’s coming from something related to Food Heals!

I would highly recommend the Rise and Bloom Mastermind Program for any female entrepreneur  looking to up her game.  Allison Melody has been an amazing teacher, mentor, friend, and inspiration to me.  Down to the core, y’all, she’s the real deal!

I absolutely loved Ali’s mastermind, Rise and Bloom. I learned so much! I feel like participating in this mastermind will definitely take my business to the next level because Ali shares things exactly as they are – straight and to the point! No weird strategies that don’t work. All the information she shared with us was from her own experience, and very targeted towards being efficient and effective in our business. It’s a joy to learn from her and I can’t wait to elevate my business and continue learning from Ali in the next round of this amazing mastermind!

You’re only 10% human. Yes, really.

 

Just over a decade ago, doctors believed there were around 200 species of bacteria living on and in the human body. We now know the facts…there are over 30,000 (!) species. In fact, we have a community of 100 TRILLION microorganisms in our gut. That is 10 times the number of human cells in the body. So yes…we’re 10% human, 90% bacteria!

 

The microbiome was once an unknown entity, but now science has shown it to be a game changer. It’s an integral part of our health, and if we can support it, we can thrive.

 

Because of the synergistic relationship with the microorganisms in our body – we need them to survive, and they need us. However, in the last century, we’ve stopped taking care of them. Our diets (the chemicals we use to process our food), environment (the chemicals we use to clean our homes), lifestyles (lack of sleep, lack of movement, stress), medications (antibiotics) – destroy the delicate microbiome we rely on for health.

 

Doctor Will Bulsiewicz (also known as Dr. B) is an internal medicine doctor and expert gastroenterologist. While his conventional medicine training did not include any nutrition study, science was emerging about the power of diet to treat gastrointestinal disease. So he began studying it in his own time and discovered the untapped potential of a healthy gut. Having witnessed amazing results with his patients, he decided to spread the word beyond his clinic. The Gut Health MD was born.

 

 

Believe it or not, but your gut:

  • Controls your metabolism and how you process your food. It dictates whether you gain weight, or lose weight, and how easy it is to maintain your weight.
  • Is in constant communication with your immune system.
  • Regulates your mood and impulses – 95% of serotonin (your happy hormone) is produced in the gut.

 

What can you do to heal your gut?

  • Eat a wide variety of plants – the more different plants you eat, the healthier your microbiome.
  • Unless you have an allergy, don’t blanket-eliminate foods from your diet – taking out foods reduces your diet’s variety and therefore your gut’s microbiome.
  • Get proper sleep, exercise and water each day.
  • Avoid dairy, meat and processed foods – these damage your microbiome.
  • Fasting gives your gut a break and strengthens your microbiome.
  • Check out the American Gut Project. If you go to their website, they will send you a kit. Give them a stool sample, fill out a survey about your lifestyle, and for just $99 they will tell you what your microbiome looks like.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 240:

  • What volcanos and our guts have in common (this will blow your mind)
  • Is gut health to blame for autoimmune conditions?
  • What your gut does for your brain and mood
  • Can you be born with gut issues?
  • How to make sure your kids grow up with a healthy gut
  • The supercharged probiotics you create yourself
  • Why breast milk is best
  • How long you should breast-feed
  • What happens when you take antibiotics (your jaw will drop)
  • The link between gut health and urinary tract infections
  • What happens to your gut after just 5 days on antibiotics
  • The single predictor of a healthy gut
  • How quickly you can heal your digestive system
  • Why elimination is not the solution when it comes to food intolerances
  • Three of the most powerful foods for a healthy gut
  • The benefits of being vegan over being a vegetarian

@15:20 What we discovered blew our minds

@17:10 Am I an alien?

@40:04 Your gut will never be the same

@1:10:15 Drop the mic!

Could mold be affecting your health? Mold is a tricky thing. It’s affected people since the dawn of time – yet conventional medicine rarely addresses it.

 

But make no mistake: it is a serious issue. Mold produces mycotoxins that can drive up estrogen levels, overburden the body with toxicity and elevate inflammation – so if you’re sensitive to mold (25% of people have the gene that make them sensitive) other symptoms will appear, like frequent illness, more allergies, exhaustion and hormonal issues.

 

Jenn Malecha had a pretty healthy up-bringing – garden, vegetables, an active lifestyle. But when she got to college, the long hours and stress caused by studying and working crazy hours caused her health to decline. Then, at just 25 (and having never been a sun-worshipper), Jenn was diagnosed with skin cancer…

 

She knew it had to be caused by her environment and lifestyle. Functional tests revealed that she had high oxidative stress, a clogged-up liver, and adrenal dysfunction. So she tackled all those things, and felt like herself again…until five years later.  She began gaining weight, her periods were all over the place, she had candida overgrowth and inflamed breasts. She went to experts, who were unable to tell her what was going on.

 

One day later on she opened the cupboard near her work desk, and guess what? Black mold everywhere. The Toxic mold had been what devastated her health. Having understood what was causing these issues, she began rebalancing her health. She became the boss of her health instead of relying on doctors. She now empowers others to have that same connection with their body.

 

 

Here are some of the strategies she used to free her home and her body from mold:

 

Screen for Mold at Home:

  • Visual contrast screening – You can take the test for just $15
  • Even if you pass this test, take an at home microscopy mold test by Citrisafe. This is a small Petri dish that collects mold spores. Once sent to the lab, researchers will analyze the type of mold present in your home.
  • The other test is called an ERMI test and is available from Mycometrics . This is a cloth with which you dust surfaces around your house. The cloth is then analyzed for mold – this test can be good to do because, unlike the microscopy test, it doesn’t depend on the mold spores being alive.

 

Screen for Mold Toxicity:

  • Are you electrically charged all the time?
  • Are you urinating more frequently?
  • Nasal swab – order through a naturopathic doctor or functional practitioner.

 

Getting Rid of Mold:

  • Hire professionals to remove the mold (really important!)
  • Clean air ducts.
  • Buy anti-mold solution Bio-Balance. This is a natural toxin-free solution to remove mold from your home.
  • Get rid of mold on your carpet and your pets – products available at www.citrisafe.com.
  • After 30 days, retest your home for mold.
  • Get some functional tests done – if you’re sensitive to mold, it will trigger a chronic inflammatory response. 

 

Detox Your Body and Feed Yourself Right:

  • Biotoxins can make the body hyperreactive to wheat. So avoiding gluten is essential.
  • Eat more natural detoxifying foods like beets, dandelion tea, grapefruit, lemon.
  • Keep an anti-inflammatory diet – remove grains, dairy, soy, sugar, and processed foods from your diet.
  • Run a food sensitivity test to find out which foods to stay away from.
  • Check your personal care products – do they contain allergens like oats or almonds?
  • Start a food journal – this will help you identify what triggers your symptoms.
  • Listen to your body – tune in and see what the body is telling you rather than just trying to follow protocols.
  • Think yourself healthy – mindset and health are absolutely linked.
  • Meditate, feed your mind positive thoughts, give yourself enough sleep (leave your cell phone out of the bedroom).
  • Make time to switch off and relax.

 

Jenn now helps busy professionals take back control of their health by offering lab tests and resources that identify the missing piece of their health puzzle. With over a decade of personal training experience, Jenn creates personalized health-rebuilding programs for her clients that are realistic and achievable.

  • Is the sun really an enemy?
  • How Jenn reversed Hashimoto’s disease in 6 months
  • How you can be a “w”holistic health boss
  • What mold and electricity have in common
  • Why NOT to get the Home Depot mold test
