What is a Sugar Cleanse and Do I Need it Now?

“Cleanses” have become super popular but not everyone understands what it is and why it is important.  No, I’m not talking about cleansing something off the outside of your body.  I’m talking about doing an inside job.  So let’s explore what cleanses are all about.

The Dictionary defines cleanse this way:  to rid of impurities; to remove toxins from the body.  Body cleanses have been around for centuries.  From the Egyptians to the Romans, people have always tried to rid their bodies of toxin build up.  And today we live in a toxic soup from exposures to toxic cleaning products, toxic fabrics that touch our bodies all day long and even at night, toxic mattresses, toxic air, toxic “new car smells” (yes that is called off-gassing from chemicals used). And then there are all the toxins on food we eat, whether fresh or packaged.

But what does that have to do with doing a sugar cleanse? Did you know that sugar is toxic to the body?  Maybe it wouldn’t be if we ate less of it, but presently we consume on average, 200# of sugar per person per year.  Our ancestors consumed about 22 teaspoons per year which was fine for the body to deal with, but today we are overloaded with it to the point that our bodies respond to as a toxic substance.  And therefore sets us up for “inflammation” which is now the root cause of nearly all chronic disease.

So how did we get so overloaded with sugar?  Back in the 60’s the sugar industry was studying the effects of sugar on the body and noticed a link with heart disease, so of course stopped the study and pivoted over to high cholesterol and high fat being the culprit.  https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/09/13/493739074/50-years-ago-sugar-industry-quietly-paid-scientists-to-point-blame-at-fat

Because of this most major health organizations got on board promoting low fat diets including the healthcare system. And to help out the cause, the food industry then created a myriad of low-fat food options, which coincidently were also high carb which translates into high sugar once it breaks down in the body.  So we started a grand experiment of the worst diet for health (high carb, low fat) which has led to skyrocketing rates of obesity, Diabetes, and many other chronic diseases, which we know today are related to inflammation. http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0057873

So back to sugar as the culprit.  We now recognize the link between sugar and heart disease but also to cancer as well.  https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/fullarticle/1819573

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/10/171013103623.htm

This is serious! And it is not getting any better since the food industry has upped their game with more sugary snacks on the market that are even bigger than ever.  You see it every day – giant sized candy bars, giant muffins, giant bagels, giant bags of chips, etc.  In addition if you are a label reader of food packages, you will see sugar has been added to 75% of all packaged foods.  A very subtle way to get us to like the taste of a product and so we want more and more.  Yes, most of us are addicted to sugar and can’t seem to stop.

Why can’t you stop eating sugar easily?  Because it is 8 times more addicting than cocaine.  It actually “hits” the brain at the same location as drugs which causes the release of “feel good” hormones and of course the addiction cycle continues.

So what is a person to do?  It is not easy to just stop or just cut back because of the addictive property of sugar overload.  That is where a sugar cleanse becomes useful. It is a process that allows your body to release the hold that sugar has on you by bringing your blood sugar back into control which in turn stops those incessant “carb cravings”. It changes your chemistry and gives you back the control you need to resist sugar and appreciate the taste of whole natural foods.  And they taste really good once you re-educate your palate.

Here’s what a quality sugar cleanse can do for you:

  •        reduces the load of toxins going into your body
  •        helps speed the process of removing toxins from your body by adding in cleansing foods.
  •        removes the most inflammatory foods and helps you identify foods that you don’t tolerate
  •        helps heal your gut which is one of the greatest locations for inflammation in the body.
  •        gives you tools that you can use in your everyday life after the cleanse.
  •        supplies optimal foods that fuel your body.
  •        supplies pharmaceutical grade micro-nutrients to combat free-radical buildup
  •        gives you support and holds you accountable.

What I find interesting is that the healthcare system probably won’t recommend this strategy for clearing your body from sugar addiction, probably because it doesn’t require using any drugs.  So if sugar is an issue for you, why not give a sugar cleanse a try.  Of course, beware of any sugar cleanse that is loaded with sugar!  So read the labels and make an informed choice, and then go for it.  

How might this help you with your New Year’s Resolutions?

Keeping Your Loved One Alive and Well

Have you imagined what life would be like if your spouse died?  It’s only recently that I have pondered that occurrence.  I’ve been lucky enough to be married to the same man for 49 years (I still don’t believe that could be possible) but recently I have been worried about his health and what it would be like if he were not here.  Does that resonate with you?

My husband is obese, has Diabetes and is non-compliant when it comes to checking his blood sugars and following a Diabetic Diet.  And his A1C is over 8, and that really scares me.  He’s already been thru open heart surgery to fix four blockages, a stent put in two years later, and now is experiencing shortness of breath.  So back for more tests and another possible surgery. Things are happening that have me worried and I am starting to feel afraid that I could lose him.

The most frustrating part is that I know what he needs to do to improve his chances of living longer and healthier but I can’t get him to do it.  I’m sure it hasn’t been easy for him living with “Nurse Wellness” since he’s addicted to junk food and doesn’t want to change from pizza and hamburgers to whatever I have concocted that is super healthy and not loaded with sugar and grease. A definite dilemma, but it doesn’t mean that I give up trying to change him, despite knowing you can’t change anyone but yourself.

I will admit I have had to get sneaky over the years trying to trick him into adopting healthier eating habits.  For example, when I started my own wellness business with a focus on nutrition, I really learned the facts about using “food as medicine” so I was very motivated toward helping him lose weight, bring down those blood sugars and maybe get off of the many drugs he was on.  

One of the programs I had at my disposal was called a Sugar Cleanse and it was part of a weight loss program, so I thought this would be perfect for him. It consisted of replacing meals with shakes for 5 days, taking vitamins twice a day, eating nutrition bars in between meals and after 5 days he could lose 5 pounds.  But how to get him to do it?

Step one.  I knew that he had loved having milk shakes as a treat, so I suggested he might like to try one of my nutrition shakes.  And guess what – he liked it!  Step one was accomplished and he was willing to drink a shake every morning for breakfast.  

Step 2.  Getting him to take the vitamins.  He was already taking medications for his Diabetes, so what’s a few more pills?  I told him they had been giving me more energy, I felt better and was sleeping better so he decided to give them a try.  So I added them to his pill box and he took them all together without flinching.  Just a few more pills – no big deal.

Step 3.  Getting him to do the 5-day Sugar Cleanse.  Since I hadn’t tried it myself, I wanted to know what it was like so I could better support my customers about what to expect. I also knew that it helps with weight loss and blood sugar control so I asked him to do it with me and he said YES!  And he agreed to check his blood sugars during the 5 days to see if it was working.  NOTE:  I believe that even tho he originally seemed to be resistant to changing his lifestyle toward more healthy living, he really did want to get healthier but didn’t know how to proceed.  Sometimes when something comes along that sounds like it could work and is non-threatening, people jump on board.  Timing is everything!

And so the experiment began.  Day one his blood sugar was 180, and by day 5, it was 90.  He was thrilled!  And guess what – he lost 11 pounds over 5 days to my 5. Yes, men seem to lose weight faster than women – not fair!  Now he was on a roll and stayed on a modified version of the program for the next 6 months, lost over 40 pounds, got off of his blood pressure and cholesterol med and one of his Diabetes meds.  And felt a whole lot better and became a believer in eating “low glycemic” foods for weight and blood sugar control.  So being sneaky and trying to trick him into making some healthy lifestyle changes may not seem fair, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do.  And in this case it worked.

But now for the rest of the story.  I wish I could say that there is a happy ending and he stayed super healthy for the rest of his days.  But truth be told, this plan worked for several years but gradually his food addiction sneaked back in with his old habits and he gained all his weight back and finally ended up taking insulin for his Diabetes.

So here we are again, back at the beginning.  However, this time we’re older and now I’m  worried that his life could be in jeopardy.  But my nature is not to give up.  Especially when I know the results he had before were spectacular and life saving.  I am also armed with success stories from other clients who use this program and are healthier and extremely grateful to have found something that works, when all the meds in the world have not helped.  Even one man was able to drop his A1C from 8 to 5 and resolved his Diabetic Neuropathy!  And again I am amazed at the power of “food as medicine”.

So rather than giving into the fear of the “inevitable” with my husband, I prefer to take the high road and become the “trickster” again and try to work my magic once more.  After all, he is worth it and the path of healthcare with all those drugs and procedures should be the “path less traveled”.  Wellness is the way to true health and longevity.

Do you have a spouse or partner who has health issues you wish you could change and how are you handling it?  Please share your stories.

7 Practical Healing Strategies Healthcare Needs for Survival

It’s no secret that people are frustrated with the way today’s healthcare system operates with it’s lack of focus on what true healing is about.  Having just returned from another trip to Sanoviv Medical Institute and Holistic Healing Center where I take nurses for Holistic Nutrition training, it is truly a healing experience and one that every nurse should experience as a benchmark of where healthcare needs to be in the future in order to survive.  http://www.sanoviv.com/medical-programs/sanoviv-health-and-education-retreat-nurses/

Oh and did I mention, this amazing facility is located one hour from San Diego – across the border into Mexico.  That’s why they can use other healing modalities we are not allowed to use in the U.S. with proven results of success.  They still treat patients with major chronic degenerative diseases in traditional ways (like stage 4 cancer when the patient has been written off by our system), but they also offer a functional medicine approach that focuses on the whole body, mind and spirit in consultation with physicians, nurses, chiropractors, nutritionists, dentists, psychologists, and spa therapists.  A true patient-centered approach that leads no stone unturned.  www.functionalmedicine.org

Unlike my latest experience with a traditional medical consult for my husband who will soon be undergoing a cardiac catheterization with the possible placement of a stent, all the nurse and physician were interested in doing was “telling” us what was going to happen next, as opposed to investigating all about his lifestyle and what factors might impact him now and in the future related to this situation.  Once again I was aware that he was only having his heart treated, and not his whole being.

So my latest trip to Sanoviv reminded me of simple strategies that we could all start implementing with the end result of helping others achieve true healing instead of just getting body parts fixed.  Here are some ideas for you to consider.  Of course it would be great if you could actually implement all of these things for the benefit of our patients in one fell swoop.  But realistically, if you would make a commitment to start the process of taking one small step in a healing direction, that could start the ball rolling or even just begin the conversation – that would be great progress.

Remove toxins from the environment.

Our bodies are overloaded with toxins and we are exposed to more and more in great amounts every day.  Here is one example.  Consider how much hand sanitizers are being used in most businesses to the point where people are afraid of germs and getting addicted to using them constantly. Many hand sanitizers expose you to potentially harmful chemicals and may compromise your long-term immunity.  Take home message – just like we learned in school – wash your hands with soap and water.  https://www.ewg.org/research/healthy-home-tips/tip-5-wash-those-hands-avoid-triclosan#.Wg4ihkqnFPY

Use organic cotton clothing washed in toxin-free cleaning solutions.

Think about how much of the time your skin is in contact with clothing, pajamas, sheets.  If fabric smells like something, it is probably tainted by chemicals used in detergents, and those chemicals pass into your body thru your skin.  Find out what products are being used to clean fabrics in the hospital and in your home and change it to something toxin free.  https://www.ewg.org/guides/categories/9-Laundry?grade=a#.Wg4huUqnFPY

Encourage positivity

Use a positive tone and use positive words when conversing with patients and co-workers. Make sure TV programs being shown convey a pleasant feeling. At Sanoviv, prior to surgery, patients attend a laughter yoga class. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

http://www.sanoviv.com/healing-through-laughter-yoga/

Serve healthy whole food

Food is medicine.  Everyone at Sanoviv eats food that is mostly plant-based and organic at a ratio of half raw and half cooked. They have an organic garden to grow their own food, and when they can’t get everything they need,  they carefully select produce from other trusted sources. They also protect from potentially harmful pathogens by cleansing produce in a colloidal silver fruit and vegetable wash.

http://www.sanoviv.com/food-at-sanoviv/

Provide communal dining

At Sanoviv all patients (except those too ill to join in) and guests eat together in a common dining room to provide socialization, positive support, and to feel more human and not so isolated as we do with patients.  Negative conversation is discouraged.  https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/apr/14/health-benefits-eating-together/

Create a calm environment

At Sanoviv, soothing music is provided throughout the facility which has a calming effect during treatments and meals. Gentle chimes are used to wake up in the morning.  A quiet room is available in view of the ocean providing total silence while patients recline with multiple pillows positioning them comfortably.

http://www.nextavenue.org/benefits-quiet-body-mind-and-spirit/

Bring in nature as much as possible

Patients receiving IV’s are in recliners and outside on the deck overlooking the ocean and listening to the ocean waves. Walking barefoot in the soft grass (Earthing) is encouraged to release any buildup of the negative effects of all the technology we are exposed to from EMF.  (Electromagnetic frequencies).  Multiple healing pools outside are used for natural detoxification and water exercise.

Hopefully these healing strategies give you “food for thought” and may inspire you to take positive action toward small steps that can improve and heal our broken healthcare system.  Click below to share your insights and experiences, especially what you see already working!

3 Ways to Assess Your Wellness Literacy

Early in my nursing career, I remember developing frustration over taking care of patients who had conditions I sensed could have been prevented.  Of course I wasn’t taking the greatest care of myself either at that time.  What was really going on with me was not being true to myself by being a bedside nurse. I had an innate knowing that there had to be a better way to deal with my nursing career.  That “intuitive hit” propelled me away from the bedside and into the role of School Nurse which seemed a better fit for me.  I could now teach students, staff and parents how to stay healthy.  At least I thought I could.

What I soon discovered was I had a knowledge deficit.  I really didn’t know much about prevention and wellness, just all the medical skills of basic nursing.  That worked well for me doing clinical work in my job, but I was a novice at education.  I remember being asked to present a class on heart health by a science teacher, and because I was a nurse he assumed I knew everything about health.  As it turned out, he knew more than me and I was quite humbled by that experience.  I really felt I had let him down, was totally embarrassed and needed to correct that right away.  I knew I was not fully equipped to take on the role of prevention specialist, even tho I was a nurse.

So back to school I went to pursue everything and anything that was being offered on health education, prevention and wellness. And what I discovered was I had a lot to learn.  But I found it to be FUN and effortless and therefore knew I had found the type of nursing that I could excel at – Health and Wellness.  Before I knew it, I had completed a Masters Degree in Health Education and was perfectly poised to embark on my career as a wellness specialist.

Now back to the role of the traditional nurse.  Not everyone wants to abandon that role and I totally appreciate that.  After all I still believe nurses are awesome!  It is still the best background I could ever have pursued to get me to this next level which is a better fit for me.  We have a tremendous background on the workings of the body and illness and disease processes, but truth be told, we are not prevention specialists.

And yet, because we are nurses, people think we know everything there is about being healthy.  Today most people are looking for a way out from under all the drugs and surgeries that healthcare promotes, so I think nurses can become wellness advocates to help them find the way.  But first you need to assess for yourself if you have a knowledge deficit when it comes to wellness and prevention.  

So please answer these questions for yourself.

  1. Do you consider yourself an expert on how to prevent illness and disease?  YES   NO
  2. Do others expect you to know everything about how to stay healthy?   YES   NO
  3. Do you know more about taking care of diseases rather than keeping people well?  YES NO

Hopefully this was thought provoking.  My experience with nurses is they haven’t had the opportunity to focus on wellness because they are overwhelmed with all the chronic diseases they deal with daily.  So my invitation to you is to follow this Wellness Blog for Nurses http://allnurses.com/general-nursing-discussion/3-ways-to-1133982.html to start acquiring information and ideas that will help you build up your knowledge on how prevention works and how it will be the lifeline to a healthier future for our patients, ourselves, and the healthcare industry as well.

Optional FREE Bonus:  Here is a special Wellness Assessment that I use in my business that takes about 10 minutes and gives you 3 HIPAA certified reports that might be useful for you.  https://carolebert.usana.com/pwp/#/site/1009227/page/206504958

Time to Stop – Summer Sugar Shock

I know you are enjoying summer sun and fun and are in the mode of “whatever”.  I can break all the rules and indulge myself because who cares – it’s summer and I’m in a vacation state of mind.  That’s cool, but perhaps you have been over-indulging a bit with the sugar-rush that comes with a celebratory attitude.  Right?  I know I am doing that more now than usual.
What if I could offer you a sweet way out that fills your sweet tooth but doesn’t fill your body with that sweet toxin you just can’t seem to resist.
I’m excited to share with you the news that our 5-Day Sugar Buster Program, which I have used and promoted for the past 10 years (and it really works!) is NEW and IMPROVED and starts Sunday August 6.  Why is it new and improved?
Because it not only jump-starts a new healthy you in just 5 days, kills the carb and sugar cravings, adds back solid nutrition in the form of meal replacement shakes and cell-signaling technology in the vitamins provided, but also includes a “gut health” component which adds back good bacteria to set the stage for improved digestion.
Here are the features
Each “Sugar Buster RESET Kit” includes the following favorites:
5 days of “delicious” low-glycemic gluten-free meal replacement shakes
  • 8 Dutch Chocolate Nutrimeal™ single-serve packets
  • 7 French Vanilla Nutrimeal™ single-serve packets
5 AM and 5 PM HealthPak™ Vitamin packets

5 USANA® Probiotic stick packs to add back good bacteria to your gut

Helpful Program Guide with an easy schedule to follow and great whole food snack ideas

Here’s a short video of Dr. Karen Wolfe explaining the Kit to those of us who already use these products.  Thought you might like to see it too!

In addition there are 2 FREE calls with Dr. Karen for extra education and coaching, plus 28 days of followup emails for continued support.
But wait – there’s more!  I will offer optional wellness coaching for the full month so you will never be alone on this journey.
What’s not to love about all of these features!
And you won’t believe the new reduced cost. Just $99.95 plus tax and shipping.  Probably less than your grocery bill and meals out for 5 days.
Time to curb those carb cravings and get back on the path of healthy eating and releasing stubborn body fat.
Want to know more?  Connect with me by clicking the link below and I will schedule a call to answer all your questions.  Hope to hear back from you soon!

Deadline to register is July 26 so don’t miss out!

Thanks.

Summer Special that will Wake You Up!

I’m just back from my annual trek to the 42nd Annual National Wellness Conference – the lifeblood of my wellness career for rejuvenation, renewal, re-tooling and re-acquainting with old friends. Once again amazing experience after being in attendance for the past 30+ years.  That’s an amazing feat itself!
I presented on SLEEP or the lack thereof, and was greeted by 65 tired souls who waited in line to get into the room and resulted in standing room only.  Apparently there are a lot of people (maybe even YOU) who have this issue.

How to get your body moving

How are you doing with your food planning so far?  Got the shelves and frig re-stocked and ready for more healthy tips?  Your body loves good food but it also loves moving.

I don’t know if you are like me, but taking the time to exercise regularly always seemed more like a chore than a gift so I was reluctant to get into the habit.  So I learned to re-frame it from a have-to into a want-to.  I now think of exercise as a great stress management tool and because it works so well for that (without having to take drugs) I really want to do it and really enjoy and appreciate it.

How can you re-frame what exercise can do for you so you too will want to fit it in?

Take some time to think about how you’re going to find time to be active. Are you going to wake up early? Walk after dinner? Run during lunch? Schedule the time on your calendar, and write down what you want to do (bike, weight lift, yoga, etc.). And if you need to find a program to work out at home, look for something on YouTube. For example: search “no equipment 20-minute workout” (or however much time you have).

What’s your favorite time of day to work out?

What exercises do you like?
