Week Five: Discover The Language Of Your Body
The Language Of Your Body
Optimize Your Nutrients
What to Remember
The Language Of Your Body
Your body is constantly talking to you. Are you listening? A disease usually has many signs that the body is needing help before anything manifests. Here are signs to watch for:
Trouble with digestion
Skin issues: itchy, lip balm, psoriasis, etc.
Top reasons for fatigue include:
Number one, get off the sugar and caffeine! Sugar and caffeine affect your adrenals, nervous system and overall health. If you hit the sugar or caffeine in the afternoon, it is highly probable you’ll have trouble sleeping. Fatigue can also be caused by low-iron in women who are anemic. Be sure you’re eating dark green leafy veggies or taking an iron supplement if you are anemic. (Check with your doctor.) Dehydration is another cause of fatigue. Create a system to make sure you get enough water throughout your day. Create a lifestyle of balanced rest, exercise, fun, and work. Rest is part of health!
If you feel like you can’t concentrate, remembering things or it feels like you’re in a haze, you might have brain fog. 5 symptoms of brain fog include:
Lack of sleep
Possible Thyroid condition
You’ve done one of the best things for brain fog and that’s a DETOX! =) First, take a high-quality multi-vitamin. Stay away from sugar! 5-ways to improve brain fog include:
Eat in 12-hour increments to give your gut a break
Exercise (Take 2-weeks free to my online Get Fit program click here)
Relax and rest
Eat good fat and protein (Omega-3 & Q10)
Brain fog is not normal and doesn’t come with aging. It can be remedied and you can think more clearly!
Trouble Digesting (3)
By now you should understand the importance of a healthy digestive tract. If you are feeling bloated constipated or have diarrhea, your body is telling you what you’re eating isn’t the best choice. To make sure your digestion is running optimally you must read the language of your gut and that comes through your elimination. Here is a chart to help you understand the language of your poo: Stool color is generally influenced by what you eat as well as by the amount of bile in your stool (4). 6 reasons the form of your poo is not normal include:
What color should your poo be?
Healthy poo is light to dark brown and doesn’t have an intense smell.
Don’t get me wrong… It will smell but not be overpowering. This chart shows the various colors of poo and what they mean:
What it may mean
Possible dietary causes
Food may be moving through the large intestine too quickly, such as due to diarrhea. As a result, bile doesn’t have time to break down completely.
Green leafy vegetables, green food coloring, such as in flavored drink mixes or ice pops, iron supplements.
Light-colored, white or clay-colored
A lack of bile in stool. This may indicate a bile duct obstruction.
Certain medications, such as large doses of bismuth subsalicylate (Kaopectate, Pepto-Bismol) and other anti-diarrheal drugs.
Yellow, greasy, foul-smelling
Excess fat in the stool, such as due to a malabsorption disorder, for example, celiac disease.
Sometimes the protein gluten, such as in breads and cereals. See a doctor for evaluation.
Bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract, such as the stomach.
Iron supplements, bismuth subsalicylate (Kaopectate, Pepto-Bismol), black licorice.
Bleeding in the lower intestinal tract, such as the large intestine or rectum, often from hemorrhoids.
Red food coloring, beets, cranberries, tomato juice or soup, red gelatin or drink mixes.
(Taken from (4)) What color should your pee be?
Healthy pee is nearly clear!
Nearly clear pee is telling you you’re well hydrated and everything is working optimally(5). Healthy pee will have a slight odor but not overpowering. Overpowering odor can be a sign of dehydration or something more serious like a urinary tract infection. Here is a chart of pee color to be aware of(5): Your body speaks to you through your elimination. Now you know its language. Start observing what is normal for you and Pay Attention regularly!
Sleep issues are when your brain has trouble turning off and allowing you to rest. Possible causes include:
Heavy meals before bed
Good sleep is crucial for good health. Here is an easy routine to follow before bed:
Turn the TV and computer off an hour before bed
Read something with soft light (red light is the best)
If you get up in the middle of the night, don’t turn on the light. The light will signal your brain it’s time to get up. Always use soft or no light when getting out of bed. Lastly, melatonin can also help you sleep. It is created in the body to help you sleep and supplementing could support you.
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It protects you from outer elements that may harm your delicate systems inside. There are special immune cells in the skin that protect you from viruses, bacteria, and other harmful substances. If your skin changes in color, not due to sun exposure, texture or starts to itch, it is telling you something isn’t right…Pay Attention! First, get to know your skin by having your moles check on a regular basis. Know where they are and what is normal looking. I found a clients melanoma when it just started forming! Itchy skin, bad breath, and yellow eyes can be an indication your liver may be having issues. I’ve had psoriasis most of my adult life and discovered recently that it’s probably a copper deficiency. I’ve been taking a copper supplement daily and my psoriasis is looking a ton better and the inching as subsided to nearly nothing. Things that can cause skin irritation include the following:
Wheather (sun, wind, cold, dry temp)
Know your body. Your skin should look and feel good. If it doesn’t, something in your environment, diet or emotions needs to change. For more info on skin issues and what to do about it click here.
Tightness and Knots In Your Body
If you feel a knot in your body, or pain in your joints, it might be stuck fascia.
Fascia is a thin layer of connective tissue that surrounds your muscles. It can get tight if you don’t drink enough water; if you do repetitive movements, and if you sit for long periods of time.
Plus, when you feel knee or elbow pain, it might not be the joint but the fascia around the joint pulling on it.
My sister was having back pain once. It came up when she drove a lot. I had her do a stretch that lengthened her driving leg and she felt a ton better. The pain wasn’t coming from her back it was the surrounding tissue that was getting stuck and putting pressure on her back.
Using a foam roller or lacrosse ball on tight muscles or muscles around painful joints works even better than stretching. It will actually help you stretch even further.
When you foam roll it lengthens the fascia and helps get it unstuck, which is usually causing the pain.
Here is a video I created that teaches you how to foam roll click here
To help your fascia stay elastic and moving drink plenty of water especially after foam rolling. Your fascia is more open at that time and will suck in the water helping it to be more flexible.
When you have knots or pain your body is telling you something is stuck. Get it moving again and you’ll feel a ton better!
Always check with your doctor if the pain doesn’t go away.
Your Body’s Language
As you can see your body has a language of its own. If you pay attention and acknowledge when it’s speaking to you, you will have have a high quality of life and age gracefully. Not paying attention can lead you down the road to disease. You deserve the best quality of life possible!
Optimal Nutrition Plan
The foundation of your nutrition should nourish your body’s systems, leave you feeling energetic and at a healthy weight! Everyone is different so always check-in with your body and see how you feel on a new nutrition plan. Optimal Meals (based on stomach acid digestion timing):
Fruit for breakfast or with a green/protein shake + good fat
Unrefined Carbs for lunch with veggies and good fat (no protein)
Protein for dinner with veggies and good fat (no starches)
Eat dessert first wait 40-60 minutes then have dinner. Best if you go for a 10-minute walk afterward.
Fruit by itself and wait an hour before eating anything else
Unrefined carbs like sweet potato with Ghee or coconut oil (no protein)
Protein shake as an after dinner snack or before bedtime snack (no fruit)
See your “What to Eat” link above and look at your Cookbook for more ideas.
To optimize your vitamins & minerals eat different foods often.
Optimize Your Nutrients
I highly recommended to include these supplements moving forward:
Probiotics each morning 20-30 minutes before breakfast
Use Oxy-Powder use at least once a month or every other month for 2-3 nights in a row.
Have a Green protein shake for most breakfasts at least 3-4 days a week or as snack once a day
Your gut loses good and bad bacteria every day. What you eat feeds one of the two different types. You don’t need to take a probiotic 100% of the time but one month on and one month off will support your gut tremendously! If you have digestion issues, your first go-to should be a probiotic.
Here are six ways your stomach loses digestive enzymes :
Toxins in tap water
When you have a digestive enzyme with most meals it supports your stomach to break down your food so your body can absorb the nutrients. Keep some in your purse and in your car so you have a constant supply when you need them.
100% Bioavailable Daily Multi-vitamin
Your body rarely gets the vitamins and minerals it needs through food. Taking a 100% bioavailable multi-vitamin may give your body the following:
Better ability to deal with stress
Help your cells function optimally
I recommend Perque Life Guard click here This supplement energizes & alkalinizes the body, promoting vitality you can feel. It has 40 essential nutrients. It is proven in a Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Trial to be 100% bioavailable versus 5-20% for competitor multis. And is one of the purest vitamins on the market!
CoQ10 is a supplement that supports the energy pathways of your cells. Many health conditions like heart disease, brain disorders, diabetes, and cancer have been linked to low levels of CoQ10 (10). CoQ10 is made by the body and stored in the mitochondria of your cells. The mitochondria in your cells is responsible for producing energy and protecting your cells from free radicals, bacteria, and viruses.
Here is a list of benefits that CoQ10 have shown:
CoQ10 may support…
Younger looking skin
Reduction of headaches
A good one I’ve found is made by Sports Research and made from Coconut oil click here
EPA’s & DHA (11)
EPA and DHA are your Omega 3’s and they are crucial for brain health! Every single cell in your entire body needs these fats! These fats support your cell’s to repair and produce new cells. EPA reduces cellular inflammation. DHA is the most abundant fatty acid in the brain and supports the structure and function of your nerve cells. The essential fatty acids support the following:
Here is a pure EPA & DHA supplement that uses purer deep-sea fish oils that are nitrogen distilled to prevent oxidization and rancidity damage. To check them out click here
What is Cancer?
Cancer is a mutated cell. We are all born with cancer.
A healthy immune system takes care of cancer.
According to Dr. Leonard Coldwell, the root-causes of cancer are the following:
Lack of energy
Lack of Self-Love
Cancer is a self-sabotage response to the energy in your body.
Since 1911 we know that cancer cannot exist in an oxygen rich and alkaline environment.
Your body renews within weeks.
1-7 billion liver cells renew each second. In 6-weeks we have a brand-new liver.
Kidneys renew every 8-weeks
Lungs renew every 8-months
Soft-tissue in skin renews every 72-hours
Full-body skin renews every 4-weeks
Entire body renewed in 21-months
When energy is low-enough cancer can grow.
Stress is the #1 cause for acidity in the body.
86% of all illness and doctor visits are stress related.
56% of people in the world will get cancer
Cancer is a symptom. It is not the cause. Cancer is telling you that you are not happy with something in your life or there is an environmental issue that you have that is affecting you.
Dr. James Forsythe
Dr. James Forsythe who has been studying medicine since the 1950’s, was the 1st oncologist in Reno, Nevada and started the first 3-cancer wards there; was the head of the VA cancer program, the Associate professor at the medical school in Nevada and author of “Take Control of Your Cancer” and “Anti-Cancer Diet”.]
Survivor rate of stage 4th cancer with conventional medicine is 2% after 5-years. Dr. Forsythe has a 72% survival rate of all cancer types. The first thing he does is a complete profile of your cancer and what you’re deficient in. What he prescribes:
For Cancer Prevention Heal, Support & Improve Your Cell’s Functions and Boost Your Immune System!
A cancer cell has more insulin receptors than a regular cell and takes up sugar. Dr. James Forsythe Trojan Horse model: He sends a small dose of chemotherapy with insulin so the cells think sugar is coming in and take the chemo into their cell. The side-effects are greatly reduced. They have seen a 90% reduction in tumors with this method in a 4-week period. He focuses on immune boosting therapies which include the following:
High doses of vitamin C
Poly-MVA: Supports cellular energy production, oxygenation, and rejuvenation of cellsclick here
Other immune-boosting therapy
Diet to Support Cancer Healing:
Cut out sugar and Simple Carbohydrates
Alkaline diet (Cancer creates acid and thrives in an acid environment)
Detox foods like garlic, beets, green organic veggies, wheat grass, broccoli,
Alkaline water to increase your PH
Bicarbonate and water
Alka-Seltzer Effervescent Gold (has been shown to be an anti-inflammatory, relieves pain, and supports normal electrolyte and PH balance)
Juicing is a great way to get the best nutrients
Maximum Green Vibrance is a GREAT idea to optimize vitamins and minerals click here
10-Foods That Prevent Cancer
(Taken From Food Revolution Network)
Heavy metals are found in cancer patients.
One of the #1 ways heavy metals enters the body is in tap water! These metals include the following:
Arsenic (may come from water)
Mercury (may come from fillings in the mouth)
Silver (may come from fillings in the mouth)
Tin (may come from fillings in the mouth)
Research in Europe Dr. Raul in Switzerland found that Amalgam fillings have been linked to breast cancer on the same side as the filling. He also found that the dental meridian in your molars leads to the breast meridian. Over Use of Radiation For Detection of Cancer: Your immune system is very sensitive to radiation. CAT (CT) Scan is 600 times the radiation of a simple chest x-ray. PET Scan is a radioactive material injected into your vein and is 5-times worse than a CT scan. You can find the same info from tumor-markers on your blood. Better Breast Cancer screenings are Ultra Sound or Doppler method or thermography. MRI’s are fine as well.
Take responsibility for your health!
Cancer Prevention Supplements Include:
Vitamin B-17 (Laetrile) blocks the uptake of sugar. Increase your dose slowly to 7-21 a day for 28-days.

Green tea extract
Flora Essence Tea: Gentle whole body detox tea
Essiac Tea: Detox tea
Drink at least 1-gallon of water a day with 1/2 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt to get your minerals. (Remember your body needs water! Dehydration kills your body.)
Emotional Cancer Prevention:
Set positive goals for your life
See yourself as fit and healthy
Be congruent with yourself, your boundaries and what you want in your life
Keep a confident positive attitude
Negative stress must go
