September 2017 Newsletter: Getting Rid of Unwanted Guests, Detoxification, and September Open House

As we begin the transition from Summer to Fall so follows this month’s newsletter. First is the follow up to last month’s article, What Not to Bring Home from Your Summer Vacation entitled Getting Rid of Unwanted Guests. This article takes a closer look at what may be causing your digestive upset and what to do about it.

The change of seasons is also a great time to change our own internal seasons with a detoxification or purification program featured in the second article.

Detoxification will be further explored at my Open House on September 14 at 7 PM – To Detox or Not, That is the Question.

Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm for the last three events, we have decided to hold this Open House “off campus.” We will be meeting at the American Legion Post 457, 6050 W. Mequon Road, Mequon (across from Piggly Wiggly). As always, we will feature wonderful and healthy food, including soup, salads, and gluten-free desserts. There are separate emails with more information and special offers including discounts on detoxification programs, bone broth protein powders, and RXBARs.

Getting Rid of Unwanted Guests

Last month, we learned why sometimes our digestion does not seem quite right and how we are exposed to and host all sorts of unwanted “guests” within our own bodies. Lots of times when the doctor cannot determine what is wrong with you or they tell you it is in your head, it may likely be these unwanted “guests” – parasites, yeast/fungi/mold, viruses, or bacteria that are taking over your body and creating a variety of symptoms.

This is all fine and good, but several questions remain. First, how do I know if a “guest” is the underlying cause of the symptoms? Second, what type of “guest” is it? And third, how do I get rid of it? All these are critical questions.

It is important to be aware of other causes of digestive distress which fall into three categories: food allergies/sensitivities, structural issues in the digestive tract, and ongoing emotional stress.

To Detox or Not, That is the Question

The other day I came across an alarming study. It showed that 287 toxins were found in the blood of newborn babies. One of them was a breakdown product of DDT, the pesticide that has been banned for over 40 years! Toxins enter our environment from a variety of sources and unfortunately, they can remain there for decades. These toxins enter our body via the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and through our skin.

The basic problem we all face is that the world we were designed to live in has changed dramatically. Unfortunately, our bodies have not adapted fast enough to flush out the numerous man-made chemicals, toxins, and pollutants that are present in our daily lives.

Curious about your personal level of toxicity? Click here: http://brwellness.com/docs/toxicity_questionnaire.pdf

Getting rid of these toxins will help you live a longer, healthier life. This detoxification can boost your immune system, clear your mind, balance your hormones, reduce your body fat, and much more.

All detoxification programs are not created equal. You want to be sure to select one that supports the body’s natural two phase detoxification process. This is accomplished providing the nutrients needed to support and balance Phase I and Phase II metabolic pathways.

Come to our Open House on September 14 and learn all about it!

I will be featuring the VegeCleanse-Plus 14 Day Detoxification Program, the Standard Process 21 Day Purification Program, a Gut Detoxification program, and a gallbladder cleanse.

Success Stories

I thought I’d share a couple of recent success stories with you.

—————————————————————————————————————————
Hi Bernie,

After a full blossoming flush eruption in my mouth all day yesterday, I woke up to smooth cheeks! I think we’re making progress and thought you’d care to know 😉

Thanks for your help and I look forward to my next meeting with you.

Thanks very much for sending this, Bernie. I look forward to reading it and sharing with others!

Our family really appreciates all of your help. [Name] has been doing great and your reassuring, thoughtful approach has helped me as well.

August 2017 Newsletter: Tips for a Healthy Summer Vacation

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer. I know for me it is going by way too fast!
Thanks to everyone who attended the Open House a couple of weeks ago. We had a great discussion regarding The Ins and Outs of Digestion! The next Open House will be September 14 at 7:00 PM and the topic will be Fall Cleaning: Do You Really Need to Detox? More details to follow in a few weeks.

In this month’s newsletter, we’ll look at two things you are likely to be exposed to during the summer. One is obvious – the Sun! And the second is not as apparent – critters! These would be parasites, bacteria, fungi, and viruses found in exotic places of travel as well as your own backyard.

I hope you enjoy the newsletter.

Have Fun in the Sun
There are so many areas where the “natural health” world and the “mainstream health” world seem to clash. It is not only regarding what foods to eat, whether or not to vaccinate, but also what to do about the Sun. The “mainstream” view is to put on lots of sunscreen and you’ll be protected from sunburn and skin cancer. The “natural” view is that all this sunscreen is likely contributing to skin cancer, sun exposure is good for our health, and there are ways to protect ourselves from overdoing it.

Here are a couple of articles below from the “natural” side of the debate. In “Sunscreen Savvy” Ann Louise Gittleman discusses how the sun is an important nutrient and how to safely get your sun. You can read the article here: http://annlouise.com/2016/07/19/sunscreen-savvy/.

Another of my favorite sources of “natural” information is GreenMedInfo. Here’s a link to their feature about the benefits of sun exposure: http://www.greenmedinfo.com/therapeutic-action/sunlight-exposure.

What Not to Bring Home from Your Summer Vacation
Ever wonder why your digestion never seems just quite right? Well, as much as we don’t like to admit it we are exposed to and host all sorts of critters within our own bodies. Lots of times when your doctor can’t figure out what is wrong with you or they tell you it is in your head, it may likely be something else such as parasites, yeast/fungi/mold, viruses, or bacteria that are taking over your body and causing you a variety of symptoms.

Typical symptoms include: Allergies, anemia, asthma, bloating, chronic fatigue, constipation, Crohn’s disease, diarrhea, enlarged liver or spleen, flu-like symptoms that persist, gas, headaches, immune problems, irritable bowel, unexplained joint and muscle aches, skin problems, sleep disturbances, and teeth grinding can signal parasites, which masquerade so easily as other disorders. Some people will experience secondary gluten and/or lactose intolerance, so add food sensitivities to the list above.

I’ve had clients diagnosed with Crohn’s and a gluten sensitivity and we discovered parasites. They used anti-parasitic herbs and homeopathics to get rid of the parasites, healed their digestive tracts, no more gluten issues, and are now perfectly healthy.

July 2017 Newsletter: Some of the Latest “Nutrition” Claims in the Press

Summer is here and a Happy Fourth of July to everyone. I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend. This month has flown by as Susana and I have moved into our new residence. Nothing like a move to keep you busy! As such, I don’t have an original article this month, however, I have three interesting articles I want to share.

I’m sure many of you either saw or had a friend or relative question your devotion to coconut oil as a health food as the American Heart Association came out this past month with a hit piece. Or the British Medical Journal saying that unless you are celiac you shouldn’t avoid gluten or you won’t get enough whole grains in your diet. Or what will happen now that California has declared glyphosate is linked to cancer. See below for more details.

RXBARS are here! I am not carrying RXBARS in the office. I sell them by cases of 12. They are $24 plus tax. You can mix flavors to create your own case. If you are interested, please let me know.

Reminder – the next Open House is scheduled for July 20 at 7:00 PM. The topic is digestion: signs of poor digestion, how digestion is supposed to work, how digestion can be compromised, and what to do about it. It should be another interesting session.

Coconut Oil is Healthy
Coconut oil is not healthy and never has been healthy, or so says the USA Today as a mouthpiece for the American Heart Association. Of course we know better, but just for kicks, here’s what they said:
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/06/16/coconut-oil-isnt-healthy-its-never-been-healthy/402719001/
And here’s our side of the story:
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/defense-coconut-oil-rebuttal-usa-today

Gluten is Not Healthy
The prestigious British Medical Journal reports that only people with celiac need to worry about consuming gluten. For everyone else, it’s all in our imagination. Plus, if we don’t eat gluten, we won’t get all the whole grains that are supposedly so healthy for us. We know that to our body these whole grains are carbohydrate and that means they are sugar, and too much sugar leads to inflammation and subsequently heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other diseases. However, the authors of the study concluded, “The avoidance of gluten may result in reduced consumption of beneficial whole grains, which may affect cardiovascular risk. The promotion of gluten-free diets among people without celiac disease should not be encouraged.”

Here’s our side of the story:
http://blog.designsforhealth.com/blog/gluten-free-fearmongering

Glyphosate (RoundUp) Causes Cancer
This is also from the USA Today, but tells us that California has added glyphosate, the key ingredient in RoundUp to its list of cancer causing agents. But what will they do about it? Not much – perhaps require a label!!
Here’s the story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/06/27/roundup-ingredient-cancerous-list-monsanto-california/103222928/

I hope you all enjoy these articles. As you can see we must always be aware of how things get reported in the mainstream media.

Again, have a great holiday weekend.
Bernie

June 2017 Newsletter: Some Thoughts on Graceful Aging, Intermittent Fasting, and MSG

Thanks for all the enthusiasm for last month’s Open House! It was awesome! Once again we managed to get over 30 people accommodated comfortably in the office. And once again special thanks to my wife, Susana, for preparing lots of yummy and healthy food for the event!
We had great discussion about graceful aging and anti-inflammatory diets. The two main takeaways:

1. Graceful aging depends on a multitude of factors chief among them are the health of the endocrine system/hormonal balance and diet. We learned about the main endocrine glands and hormones and natural ways to support them. (See below for more information and links to articles I’ve written on the subject.)

2. There are many different “anti-inflammatory” diets out there. They have certain commonalities as most are gluten and dairy free, limit other grains, sugar, and processed food. Then you get more specifics – Paleo, Westin Price, histamines, FODMAPS, GAPS, SCD, salicylates, phenols, oxalates, glutamates, etc. In some of these diets we see that foods that are generally considered to be healthy (such as fruits and vegetables) contain certain chemicals that disturb select people. This leads to the possible conclusion that it is less about the food and more about the health of the digestive system.

Because of this….

I am pleased to announce the next Open House which will be Thursday, July 20 at 7:00 PM at my office. The featured topic will be Digestion. After May’s Open House I had multiple requests for this subject. While it is important to eat a healthy diet it is also critical to digest it properly!

One of the main points I made about the variety of anti-inflammatory diets is that many people have something disturbing their digestion, which is the reason they are inflamed by so many foods. We’ll explore signs of dysbiosis (poor digestion), how digestion is supposed to work, what can go wrong, and what to do about it! I hope you can join us. Watch for the official announcement and registration in early July.

The office will be closed on Wednesday May 31 and Thursday June 1 in observance of Shavuot. The office will also be closed on Tuesday June 13, Wednesday June 14, and the morning of Thursday June 15 as I will be moving my residence. Please keep those dates in mind.

The Key to Graceful Again – Meet Your Hormones
One of the major determinants of how graceful we age for both women and men is the health of our endocrine system and the hormones it produces. Many experts agree that your body’s most important functional system is the endocrine system. It is composed of glands (the endocrine glands) that produce hormones that control everything happening in the body. So, it’s time to meet your hormones. Or, as one of my favorite clients called them: her “horror-mones!”

Hormones are very powerful biological chemicals produced in very small amounts by the endocrine glands. Hormone levels are precisely and carefully monitored and controlled by the body. They are released into the blood stream and carried to specific cells to initiate specific activities; regulating, controlling, and coordinating all body functions. Many hormones are made at additional tissue sites as well as their “parent” gland. You can think of this as your body’s own inherent back-up system.

What’s the Best Way to Lose Weight?
This is one of the great questions of our times and one I am asked quite frequently. Many of my clients (and myself) will use the “cleanse” (the Standard Process 21-Day Purification Program) or another version of that program. Another technique which seems to get more and more press all the time is intermittent fasting. Dr. Mercola is a big believer. Sometimes I’m skeptical about some of the things he pushes, but in the Spring 2017 Wise Traditions from the Weston Price Foundation there was an article about it.

Here’s the link: https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/couch-potatoes-marathon-runners/. Here’s a link to the Mercola website for more details on how to do it: http://www.mercola.com/infographics/intermittent-fasting.htm

I’ve never tried it myself. I am strongly considering it so I can have some actual experience with it, and perhaps lose a few extra pounds myself! Have any of you ever tried this or are doing it? If so, I’d love to hear about your experiences! Please send an email and I can share them in next month’s newsletter.

Added Bonus Article – The Dangers of MSG
This article was also in the Spring 2017 Wise Traditions. I always knew MSG was dangerous. I have an allergy to it and remember many migraines from Chinese food until I figured it out. This article links MSG to weight gain and obesity. I believe you’ll find it interesting and informative.

May 2017 Newsletter: Natural Solutions for Preventing and Reversing Auto Immune Conditions

I am pleased to announce the next Open House at my office on Thursday, May 4 at 7:00 PM. I’m planning to discuss two topics which emerged from feedback from the Open House in March. They are Graceful Aging for Women and Men and Anti-Inflammatory Diets. We will also have a taste test of a new protein bar called the RXBAR and demonstrate how to check for calcium and zinc mineral deficiencies. The details are below. It is very important to let me know if you are coming as seating is limited.

At the last Open House I discussed natural solutions for preventing and reversing auto immune conditions. A summary of that is below.

Natural Solutions for Preventing and Reversing Auto Immune Conditions

Did you know the current list of autoimmune diseases is now over 150 and continues to grow? We can truly say there is an autoimmune epidemic underway in the United States. We all know at least one person who suffers from an autoimmune condition. In most cases they are offered little help from traditional medicine. The best case is to “manage” it to keep the symptoms as reduced as possible. There is never any mention of a possible reversal of the condition. Fortunately, many natural/holistic practitioners across the country are having success in preventing and reversing autoimmune conditions every day. I recently completed a six week training called the Autoimmune Mastery Program with Dr. Michael Gaeta, one of the country’s leading natural health authorities. This course focused on this very topic – the prevention and reversal of autoimmune conditions.

April 2017 Newsletter: Four Hot Topics of Natural Health

Thanks for all the enthusiasm for last month’s Open House! It was awesome! Somehow we got all 30 people comfortable in the office. Also special thanks to my wife, Susana, for suggesting the idea and then preparing all the yummy and healthy food for the event!

We had great discussion and learning related to four topics:

First, we talked about the importance of the lymphatic system for proper drainage of waste and toxins from the body. While I was tongue-in-cheek with my yoga pants remarks, it is a valid point. Tight yoga pants (as well as other tight clothes) restrict the flow of lymph. Over time this can cause a wide variety of health issues from increased toxicity. We demonstrated some simple muscle testing techniques to see if additional lymph drainage support was required. If you want more information on this check out the March 2017 newsletter.

Second, we learned about auto-immune disease. We learned what causes it and what can be done from a natural perspective to prevent and reverse these diseases. Look for a feature article on this topic in next month’s newsletter. If this is relevant to you now and you would like to learn more now about a natural solution please call the office and schedule an appointment.

Third, we talked about the importance of the brain and the nervous system to overall health. Without proper balance in these systems it is difficult for complete healing to occur. We demonstrated some simple muscle testing techniques to see if the brain and nervous system are balanced. And, we saw which supplements can help bring the body back to balance.

Fourth, we learned about the nutritional deficiencies caused by hormone based birth control methods and how these specific deficiencies are strongly associated with depression, low energy, and thyroid issues which seem to affect significant numbers of women. Please see the article below for more detail on this topic.

I am pleased to announce the next Open House which will be Thursday, May 4 at 7:00 PM at my office. I’m planning to discuss two topics which emerged from feedback from the Open House. They will be Graceful Aging for Women and Men and The Anti-Inflammatory Diet.

Nutritional Deficiencies Caused by Hormone Based Birth Control
What you will read below is how the nutrients depleted by hormone based birth control pills play a major role in overall health and may be directly responsible for some of the issues experienced by the women using them including: depression, low energy, and thyroid issues.

Birth control is big business! It is marketed for a variety of purposes to women aged 10-60! They are claimed to make periods “regular”, “lighter”, or “less painful”; to relieve menstrual headaches; to control endometriosis; to clear acne; to help with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome; to help with peri-menopausal changes; and “may lower” ovarian and endometrial cancer risk. Whether or not they live up to these claims is highly debatable.

These oral contraceptives are marketed as “hormones”, but they are not natural – they are synthetic estrogens and progesterone. As such, they do not act the same of natural hormones. In fact they are suppressing the normal cycle, not “regulating” it. They create a false period. One of the ways the female body clears toxins is through the monthly shedding of the uterine lining. This “false period” creates the condition where there is less cleansing of toxins.

Improving Health One Client at a Time

I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from the best and do my part to pass it along to my clients. It is a joy to see my clients improve their health.

“Thank you so much!! Your care is tremendous and I’m so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with you!! Thanks again!!”

March 2017 Newsletter: Loosen Up Your Yoga Pants and Let Your Lymph Flow and Open House Next Week

As I’ve mentioned in previous newsletters the part of my job that I like best is the continuing education. The opportunity to learn from the best healers in the country (likely the world) and to bring that back to the office to help my clients is awesome. I am truly thankful and feel very fortunate.

As I write this newsletter I’ve just returned from Concordia 2017, Physica Energetics conference and pre-conference. This year’s title is, “Beyond Flat World Medicine.” The pre-conference featured Dr. Davis Brockenshire and Dr. Robert Cass covering muscle testing techniques and a review of the product formulations. The conference features nine additional leading natural healers and practitioners, discussing topics such as what are the obstacles to healing and the nutritional deficiencies caused by hormone birth control methods.

One of the key components to nutritional healing is known as “drainage.” Without proper drainage organs and systems can become congested by toxins which can cause damage and create an obstacle to the healing process. Proper drainage of the Lymphatic System is critical for health. Read below for how yoga pants and tight fitting clothes may have an adverse affect on your body.

Also during February and March I am participating in a web-based training with Dr. Michael Gaeta, the Autoimmune Mastery Program. It is a six week program covering natural solutions for autoimmune diseases with additional sessions on Lyme disease and fibromyalgia. Dr. Gaeta works mainly with Standard Process and MediHerb products.

I look at these two trainings as the best of both worlds. Physica Energetics and Standard Process are the two top nutritional supplement lines I work with. I love the opportunity to learn more about them both and to bring this knowledge to my clients! Physica and Standard Process products work synergistically together as well. Both product lines were influenced by Dr. Royal Lee and his main formulator John Courtney.

Want to hear more? I’d love to share a few gems of learning from these two trainings with you at my Open House next week – March 9 at 7:00 PM. See below for details.

Loosen Your Yoga Pants
Sure, those yoga pants look great on you, but wearing them all day may not be optimal for your body. Your Lymphatic System is in charge of taking out cellular waste (think of it as your garbage removal system). Unlike the circulatory system or the digestive system, it does not have a pump. That is why movement is important to overall health as it creates pressure changes allowing the lymph to flow properly.

So what’s wrong with yoga pants (or other tight fitting clothes)? The same compression that keeps them tight to your body inhibits the flow of the lymph resulting in a congested lymphatic system. This condition is compounded by exercise. When you exercise you increase cellular waste. This waste wants to flow out. The yoga pants are blocking it. This creates toxic cells, an inflammatory response and can lead to a disease state. Also, inflammation brings water and water brings weight. Are you getting the picture?

Open House – March 9 at 7 PM
I’d love to share with you a few of the learning gems from these two trainings. Please come next Thursday at 7 PM to my Open House at the office at 10040 North Port Washington Road in Mequon. We’ll share some healthy food (soup, salad, and a desert) and some healthy knowledge. To make the session livelier I’ll be demonstrating some simple muscle testing techniques to see if you need some minerals (especially magnesium), if your brain is in balance, if your heart is in balance, and if your lymphatic system is draining. And we’ll be taste testing a new green powder called VitaLife Force from Physica Energetics – one tablespoon per day is all you need!

Here’s the questions I’ll be answering:
1. Why are you on my case about my yoga pants? What’s the big deal about lymph drainage?
2. Are there natural solutions to auto-immune disease?
3. Is my brain balanced? Do I need magnesium?
4. What nutritional deficiencies are caused by hormone birth control methods?

Not sure you want to join me? I’m offering an added incentive. You will receive 10% off your next supplement purchase and if you bring a friend who becomes a new client you’ll receive 15% off your next supplement purchase and your friend will get $50 off their initial consult!

The Power of Natural Solutions

Here’s one of the best healing stories from the past year.

My client wrote this along with the testimonial below, “Hope this is okay! It was a joy to recall how much my life has changed in this last year. Thank you so much!”

“Before I started working with Bernie, I was almost hopeless about ever finding the help I needed. At only 23, I had been experiencing joint pain, inflammation, brain fog, headaches, fatigue, irritability, constant muscle cramps, stiffness…the list goes on, for years already. I had been tested for MS, lupus, Lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. and was getting nowhere. The last “solution” I received from a doctor was to go on an anti-depressant. I felt like I’d hit rock-bottom. Within 3 weeks of seeing Bernie, following his nutrition and supplement plan, my life had changed. It is not an overstatement to say it was as if I was a new person who finally had my life back. Bernie was thorough in explaining to me what the issues were and helped me remain positive and hopeful in my journey of healing. I am so grateful!”

February 2017 Newsletter: HPV No More and Referral Bonus Offer

Believe it or not, one of the most challenging tasks I face each month is the monthly newsletter. I’ve been doing the newsletter since 2010, now over six years. The challenge to keep it fresh, interesting, and timely; and at the same time not too controversial. Upon completion it is also one of my most rewarding activities of the month. I receive many positive comments from clients, other readers, and particularly Sofia from Argentina (my mother-in-law).

Over the past few years there has been a simultaneous change in the growth and scope of my practice. Fewer and fewer people come to me with the question about what to eat. When I started in the nutrition business over 10 years ago very few people knew what Paleo meant, let alone heard of a Paleo Diet. People were still afraid of butter and fat. Today bone broth, protein smoothies, full fat, grass fed beef are pretty much mainstream. There are countless books and websites to learn and purchase.

Yet, my practice continues to grow. It has evolved into customized nutrition programs for my clients. Utilizing client symptom information, muscle testing and blood testing we are able to determine what is causing stress and how to remedy it. Most people, even if they have transitioned to a healthy diet, still have nutritional deficiencies or toxins that are producing symptoms in their bodies. Or in other cases, they have some mysterious, unresolved health issue that either their doctor tells them “it is in your head”, or its “normal”, or will not resolve.

My business is built on referrals and I thank you all for helping my business grow. Below I highlight a recent case that I think you’ll find interesting.

With the New Year underway this is the time people start to take a close look at their health. If you have benefited from working with me, and you have relatives, friends, or acquaintances that you feel could be helped by a nutritional consult, now is the time to reach out to them. And, if you reach out to them, I’ll reach out to you. For each referral you will get a $25 off voucher to use on supplements or consultation time.

HPV No More
Here’s the case of someone who was referred to me last April. She was told she was deficient in minerals. That was true, but she also was suffering from HPV. We used muscle testing to identify which specific supplements would help her and here’s where we are now:

“I have tested positive for the HPV virus since 2012. My strain of HPV was persistent and I underwent two LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) procedures to remove abnormal cells. I started working with Rosen Wellness on April 28th of 2016, and in January of 2017 I learned that I no longer tested positive for the HPV virus. I believe this is due to the support I received through Rosen Wellness and Bernie Rosen.”

Her doctors were shocked. They had never seen this happen before. What is interesting to me is how they react. They do not ask her for more information on what she did. Perhaps another patient could benefit from the knowledge. Rather, they just told her to keep doing it! You would think that this might be a learning opportunity, but unfortunately that just does not happen.

January 2017 Newsletter: Start the Year with a Cleanse Plus: Purify the Body, Mind, and Soul and begin a Smart Exercise Program

Wow! That’s a long title for the newsletter, but it certainly is a great way to start the New Year!

If you’re like me (yes, me too!) It is time to get back on track from the Holidays. Drop those few extra pounds and cleanse the body with the 21 Day Purification Program. Susana and I will be starting it (January 14) upon our return from vacation and we’d like you to join us. For those who do, I have a very special offer – in fact the best incentive I’ve ever offered! See below for the details.
Not sure if you need to do the cleanse or not? Well, take this quick questionnaire to see: http://brwellness.com/docs/toxicity_questionnaire.pdf

Above, I also mentioned purifying the mind and soul, and starting a smart exercise program. I’ve mentioned these two books in the past and if you haven’t had a chance yet to review them, I strongly recommend it! They are: Body by Science by Doug McGuff, MD and John Little and The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson. I’ll tell you more about them below.

But for those who can’t wait here’s a quick summary.
1. Do the 21 Day Purification Program and take advantage of this great offer!
2. Read the book Body by Science to learn how exercise impacts the body.
3. Read the book The Emotion Code to learn how to “release your trapped emotions for abundant health, love and happiness.” (That’s on the book’s cover.)

Of course if you do not have time to read the books, no problem as you can review my past blogs that summarize the books.

Cleanse Special Offer
I have a special offer this month for the Standard Process Purification Program. It is such a great offer, that I can’t even mention it here. But, I’ll tell you this – it is the largest incentive I have ever offered.
Please call or e-mail if you are interested, so I can tell you the price and we can arrange for you to pick up your kit!

Body by Science
In the past I’ve written a few articles about exercise. I’ve told you about PACE and PACE Express from Dr. Sears, BurstFit by Dr. Axe, and the Xiser stepper to name a few. All of these techniques are similar in they promote what is called “burst training” or “sprint training” and now “HIT” (high intensity training). All work off a similar premise – the human body was not designed to run a marathon and the average person does not have to spend hours upon hours exercising to get in shape.

In fact, they even boldly state that being fit is not necessarily the same as being healthy and that many people over-exercise which has negative impacts on their health. This has been my experience with many of my clients. They come to me and say, “I don’t get it. I work out every day with my trainer and I keep gaining weight.”

Body by Science explains all the whys behind this. It provides the research and the science behind how exercise impacts the body. Here’s a link to the web site: http://www.bodybyscience.net/home.html/. There are videos, blogs, and other helpful information. I highly recommend it.

Here’s the links to my blog articles summarizing the book:

The Emotion Code
As many of you are aware, there is more to the body than just the pure physical – there is the emotional and the spiritual as well. True health is not only a healthy body, but also a healthy mind and soul. There is a wide source of literature and studies supporting the role of emotion in our health. It is the basis for a variety of “energetic medicine” type practices.

The Emotion Code focuses on Dr. Bradley Nelson’s work with his chiropractic patients not only on their physical level, but on their emotional (and spiritual) level as well. He has found how emotions create the physical symptoms of his patients and by clearing the emotions the patient returns to health.

The book explains it all and gives the reader the tools to release their trapped emotions. Here’s a link to his website for more information. Warning – he’s selling all kinds of stuff which is usually a red flag for me, but all you really need is the book – so if you’re interested just start there before you go crazy buying stuff!!

And, over the next few months I’ll offer more insight in the newsletters as well. Here’s the link: http://www.healerslibrary.com/

Happy New Year! My best wishes to you, your family, and your loved ones for a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!

December 2016 Newsletter: In Loving Memory of Leo Rosen

This month’s newsletter is late and brief due to the passing of my Father last week. He lived a good and long life, just three months short of his 92nd birthday. From the Model T to the I-Phone he was certainly a member of what is now known as “The Greatest Generation.” He was a loving father, grandfather, and husband; successful attorney, World War II navy veteran, and polio survivor. We will all miss him dearly.

Interestingly enough, he almost died last March after getting a bacterial infection in the hospital. So I’ve decided to feature an article below about the dangers of bacteria in the hospital. He died of kidney failure, my belief from all the medications he was on during that battle and throughout the later years of his life. So, I’m also featuring an article on that subject.

I will be out of the office from December 30 until January 12 of next year. I will send another reminder in a few weeks, but please plan ahead for your supplement needs. I will be out of the country, so not able to get things to you.


Hospital Acquired Infections

Here are several articles from Dr. Mercola covering this issue in depth. What can you do about it? Besides eating right and taking care of yourself to avoid the hospital I generally recommend to take lots of probiotics while in the hospital and upon release.

One in 25 patients end up with hospital acquired infections. Here’s the article: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/02/04/death-by-medicine-an-update.aspx
