Natural Cures for Anxiety and Depression: Real Solutions

Depression and Anxiety are the leading causes of disability worldwide! Hmmm, why is that? 🤔

Some Psychologists and Physicians are unaware that in examining the role of one’s genetics in Depression, we also need to assess our Mental & Food Diet, Toxic Exposure, Acute and Chronic Stress, Endocrine and Autoimmune Imbalance, Vaccine and Medication side effects and Special Synergistic combinations of these contributors that uncover a direct role in Depression and Disease.

Neither humans or animals are a one-size fits all diagnoses and treatment machine, we are individuals that respond well to natural cures that do not necessarily involve pharmaceutical drugs!

It is critical that Health Care providers understand that Humans and Animals are not interchangeable subjects in some randomized trial, we are not only our physical bodies, we are also impacted by our Beliefs, our Friends, our Joy, our Environment and our Stressors.

Every thought and every action that we repeat to ourselves and/or experience while awake or asleep impacts our health and well being.

These stressors can include not having someone positive to talk to, having a heavy or negative negative outlook about life, a stressful home, a stressful career, poverty, illness, a lack of contact with Nature, a lack of Real Sunlight, Air Pollution, too many Processed Foods, Constipation, a Nutrient-Depleted Diet, poor sleep and exposure to Chemicals, Pesticides, Plastics, Vaccines and Flu Shots.

We are our Microbiome, our Mitochondrial functioning and our own Personal Epigenetic Expression and we are our self talk. We each have a unique story, unique stressors and unique genetics that impacts our health.

Gut-brain communications are mediated by the immune system, endocrine connections such as the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, and neural pathways involving the enteric nervous system. The gut microbiota is now known to play a pivotal role in gut-brain communications.”

What this means is, if you want your brain to feel better and think happier thoughts, you HAVE TO HEAL YOUR GUT AND HEAL YOUR THOUGHTS!

Again, EVERY positive or negative thought, every food and drink that goes in your stomach, on your skin, in your eyes, in your nose, impacts our mental health.

If you want to improve your overall mood and motivation then heal your self talk and heal your gut/stomach/brain relationship… this will lower your likelihood of mood disorders and diseases in general.

ALL DISEASES START IN THE GUT!

“Depression and Anxiety is not a broken brain, it is a response to your perceived stress – be it physical, emotional, or psychological.”

Our body can attempt to cope with unhealthy thoughts and an unhealthy diet and toxic chemicals by developing Inflammation which can result in the mind reflecting Depression and other Diseases!

We do not have to own the thoughts or foods or experiences that do not serve us. If you are experiencing inflammation, then pay attention to it! Inflammation is your body communicating to you that something needs to be healed, typically these are your thoughts and your gut!

Regardless of whether you have regular bowel movements, gut issues may still be present. Do you have mood swings, foul gas, bloating, constipation, stomach aches, continuously growing food allergies, eczema, psoriasis, acne, unhealthy cravings? All of these impact your mood and sleep.

Humans have evolved with plants, microbes and animal species to form a delicate web called “Life”.

Again, if you are experiencing Inflammation and a mood disorder such as, Depression/Anxiety, speak with a Functional Nutritionist and Psychologist about healing your gut & brain relationship with the following:

1. Vegan & Raw foods.

2. Anti-inflammatory 64oz /day Green Drinks/Smoothies & Supplements.

3. Quality oils, fats, real Sunshine! (Avocado & Coconut Oil)

4. Dairy & Gluten Free Probiotics & Digestive Enzymes that target brain health.

5. Creating a Positive Self Statement to repeat daily. (“I am Happy, Healthy, Beautiful & Loved”)

6. Exercise a minimum 4 X a week.

7. Stop taking the Flu Shot & Gluten, start taking supplements/foods/drinks that reduce Inflammation.

8. Detox your Mind & Body & drink at least half your weight in High Ph Water (Daily).

These 8 simple changes in your life will drastically improve your chances of dramatically improving all areas of your Physical Health and Psychological Health, especially Depression, Anxiety and Mood Swings!

Depression and other mood disorders are not cured by magical purple pills… Our moods are improved by changing how we think, how we eat, how we drink, how we live and what environmental stressors we are exposed to!

So now that you have a real list of how to improve your mood and health, how are you going to implement it?

1) Either join a gym or start walking, dancing, yoga or your exercise of choice.

2) Consult a Certified Nutritionist or explore the internet for more green Smoothie ideas & Whole Food Recipes from a Certified Functional Nutritionist.

3) Build your immune system and elevate your mood with Daily Sunshine, Healthy food, Herbs, Supplements instead of vaccines or pharma meds!

4) Buy quality water with a high Ph!

5) Start a garden or a container garden indoors or on your roof.

6) Join a group, a club or anything that gets you around positive people.

7) Follow me on Instagram @ Healthy.Desy and YummyYummyBaby.com

8) Cleanse your body of chemicals & toxins!

All this means one thing:

Unless you get your body moving, your body can not transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!

You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.

So do it… get moving today!

If you are interested in Quality, Vegan, Gluten Free supplements, send me a message for more information…

Wishing you health & wellness,

Turmeric: An Ancient Spice for Inflammation & Cancer Remedies: Part 2🌱

20180208_134150.jpg

Turmeric is an Ancient Spice that has been used in Asia & India since 2,000 B.C.

Just as oranges are a source of Vitamin C, Turmeric is a source of Curcumin. Today, we extract Curcumin from Turmeric to use as a natural medicine!

Curcumin stops pain and inflammation, and is being currently investigated for inhibiting tumors and fighting Cancer, preventing fat growth and accumulation, regulating blood sugar, stopping Depression and slowing the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease.

20180208_134047

Turmeric is also known as Indian saffron, jiang huang, haridra, curcuma longa and haldi. This healing spice belongs to the ginger family and is a major ingredient of curry powder.

The Turmeric in Curcumin has many medicinal properties such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial activity and has been used to treat cancer sores for many years.

Again, the main active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin or Diferuloyl Methane, which many studies now show to have Anticancer effects on cancer cells!

20180208_134304.jpg

Although there has been incredible results in aggressive cancers like Human Glioma, to date, Curcumin has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.

Curcumin is like a pharmacy unto itself, it works harmoniously in many different ways and very high doses can be a helpful adjunct to conventional Cancer Therapies!

Again, it is important to know that is is great to add Turmeric Spice to our foods, as I did in this dish, however, in order for the Turmeric or Curcumin to be effective in treating Cancer or other serious conditions, it must be taken in large doses and therefore should only be done under the supervision of a qualified health care practitioner, especially if you are hypoglycemic!

20180208_134705.jpg

Signs of overdosing or negative reaction include yellowing skin (jaundice), dark urine, feeling or being sick, unusual tiredness, stomach or abdominal pain, and loss of appetite.

Natural Remedies for Cancer! Part 1

20180206_113106

We all know the typical protocol for Cancer treatment, but did you know that there are Natural Remedies being used with great success?!?

Natural remedies can go a long way in minimizing side effects, while improving the quality of life for many Cancer patients.

For example, we all grew up hearing that Vitamin C is great when you are feeling sick, however, the amount of Vitamin C needed to truly ameliorate severe symptoms is needed in very high doses and should be monitored by a qualified clinician.

Having said that, are you aware that high doses of Intravenous Vitamin C has been used in Cancer care for several decades. As an antioxidant agent, Vitamin C helps control inflammatory damage to cells and DNA. The antioxidant function of Vitamin C protects healthy cells and DNA from becoming Cancerous in nature.

The bottom line is that high doses of Vitamin C can block the formation of new blood vessels essential for tumor growth, which serves as a natural way to address various diseases, including Cancer!

20180205_180118

Now for a Natural Remedy you probably have not heard of… White Berry Mistletoe Extract!

The herb Mistletoe (Iscador/Iscar/Helixor), is a very effective immune stimulating agent. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Mistletoe Extract is reportedly the most extensively studied natural treatment in the world!

In fact, Rudolph Steiner, an Alternative Medicine Physician, studied European White Berry Mistletoe and its potential to improve quality of life for people who have Cancer and other diseases like AIDS, for several decades.

20180205_165019

European White Mistletoe grows in in the U.K., continental Europe, and Western Asia. For more than 2,000 years, its twigs and leaves have been used in herbal remedies around the world. In fact, Celtic Druids used Mistletoe for almost every illness known.

Were you aware that Mistletoe Extract,(Iscador/Iscar/Helixor) is known to be a very powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune stimulant herb?

In a recent review of clinical studies, Mistletoe Extract improved survival rates in eight studies, reduced progression in two studies, and reduced the side effects of chemo and radiation in four studies— this sure does demonstrate the powerful holistic effectiveness of this Herbal Remedy!

20180205_165049

So whatever illness you have, if you are not making any progress or are open to augmenting your treatment with a natural remedy, consult your Natural Health Care practioner about Mistletoe Extract!

Mistletoe can be prescribed in the United States by approved anthroposophic physicians who are trained in complimenting conventional treatment.

Sending you positive vibes for a complete and speedy recovery! Dr.D🌞

If you are in California, you may consider visiting http://believebig.org/what-is-mistletoe/ about Mistletoe injections, and/or consulting with them about a clinic near you!

I have no affiliation with any Mistletoe Clinics or any Cancer Treatment Centers, I however, do have a son who survived Cancer…
