There is one driving factor that contributes, above all else, to the epidemic of obesity, (or as Dr. Mark Hyman puts it diabesity), and other chronic illnesses we see today. By addressing this one problem you may reverse many of your health problems, even if you don’t do anything else. Conventional medicine isn’t monitoring this problem and now our population’s girth size has grown collectively over the last 30 years. We cannot continue to treat the symptoms of obesity, or diabesity, we must treat the underlying cause…which is insulin resistance. [Read more…] about Obesity and Insulin Resistance – Part 1
Health has to do with the 4 pillars: physical, emotional/mental, spiritual, and environmental. Relationships, or primary partnerships with a romantic significant other, actually encompass all 4 pillars in a very meaningful way. The path of relationship as a way to self-awareness and growth is the hardest to follow, and yet the most fruitful when done correctly. Tantra is a way of using this primary relationship as a road to self-mastery and therefore liberation from the chains that bind us from childhood wounds and ego.

What causes insulin resistance, mood disorders, osteoporosis, insomnia, infertility, PCOS, uterine fibroids, allergies, autoimmune diseases, acne, brain fog, weight gain, cold hands and feet, low libido, gall bladder problems, sweet cravings, and breast, cervical, ovarian and uterine cancer?

Estrogen dominance is a condition in which a woman has excessive levels of estrogen and too little progesterone to balance it. This is a condition common to menopausal women and cycling women alike.
Migraines affect one in five Americans and are poorly treated with conventional medicine — yet are nearly 100 percent preventable by addressing the underlying causes!
These aren’t just any headaches. These severe, nearly disabling headaches can occur from once a year to three to four times a week. They can last from hours to days, creating suffering for millions of people.
Migraines are often associated with an aura, light sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, and severe throbbing pain on one or both sides of the head. They can even be associated with stroke-like symptoms or paralysis. [Read more…] about Do you Suffer with Migraines?
Your digestive system may be making you fat. It’s hard to believe – but very true!
New research is being published every day that blames the bugs in your digestive system and the way they upset your gut’s immune system on those extra pounds.
The authors of some of these studies explain that damage to the gut can lead to a leaky gut, allowing food particles to be exposed to the gut’s immune system. This then triggers a system-wide immune response, leading to inflammation all over the body and producing obesity by increasing insulin resistance.
You might have heard of insulin resistance. This is when your cells won’t allow the pancreatic hormone insulin into the cell to metabolize your sugar intake into energy. When you are insulin resistant, you store your sugar as fat rather than using it properly for energy.
I have come to realize many people have self-worth resistance. I am going to define this as your mind not allowing positive thoughts or compliments in to be metabolized as self-esteem. [Read more…] about Do You Suffer from Self-Worth Resistance?
