November 2019 Newsletter: Are You a Bucket Face?

To start things off Susana and I would like to thank Dr. Todd and Linda Frisch for their outstanding presentation last week at our SHAPE Warrior Event. Current and future SHAPE Warriors enjoyed learning the background to SHAPE and why they are detoxifying, feeling better than ever, and losing the weight they have struggled with in the past. They were also treated to a demonstration of Dr. Todd’s amazing Facial Analysis technique. More on that later in the newsletter.

We have talked in the past about the unique features of SHAPE ReClaimed® – one of them being the urinalysis. From the urinalysis we learn about hydration and mineral balance. One essential mineral is sodium which we can get from salt, but not any salt. The SHAPE program recommends a minimum of ½ teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt®. Read below why.

We have mentioned in past newsletters how we love to learn new information, how it enriches our practice and ultimately provides benefits to our clients. We are fortunate that we are able to meet leading practitioners like Dr. Todd and Linda Frisch. Not only have they developed the SHAPE ReClaimed® program, but Dr. Todd along with his daughter Abbie have developed their own facial analysis technique. We are pleased to announce that we are now offering this service. More details below.

A little teaser – we are already in discussions to bring Dr. Todd back in the Spring for a presentation on facial analysis.

Pass the Salt, Celtic Sea Salt® That Is!

To pass the salt or not to pass the salt, that is the question.  This is another example of nutrition confusion. First, we will address why we need salt and second why Celtic Sea Salt® is the best choice.

Let us start with the key difference between salt and sodium.  Salts are natural combinations of minerals containing sodium and other minerals. Sodium is essential to life.  It is critical for the health of every cell in the body. Sodium is a key part of the fluid between the cells.  Along with its partner potassium, the two minerals balance the nutrient and waste exchange of each cell.  Sodium is also in our blood, our lymphatic fluid, and is required for the production of hydrochloric acid so we can digest our food.  Sodium is involved in nerve and muscle functioning where it again teams with potassium.  It also maintains our body’s fluid balance, electrolyte balance, and pH balance.

As evident from above we need sodium and it is preferable to consume it in a healthy manner.  Food sources of natural sodium include vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, and meat.  Unfortunately, most of the population obtains sodium from refined table salt or sodium added to processed foods.  These are unhealthy forms of sodium because they have been stripped of all the naturally occurring minerals. In table salt all that remains are sodium and chloride.

Are You A Bucket Face? Introducing Facial Analysis

As mentioned above we are pleased to announce that we now offer Facial Analysis. In summary, facial analysis is a technique to understand health and personality. There are nine face shapes. Most people are of one type, but some are a combination. The face shapes indicate general characteristics. What is most interesting is looking at the right and left side of the face independently. The Right side is the public persona, the outer expressions, and related to female or women in the life. The Left side is the inner self, the private self, and related to male or men in the life.

From the face shape we move on to the face map and specific markings (such as lines, redness, puffiness, etc.) on the face. Each part of the face refers to specific organs and is a way to identify areas of stress in the body. Through the identification of these marks areas of health concerns can be identified and addressed.

The last part of the analysis is looking at 22 specific characteristics (including eyes, ears, nose, mouth, chin, forehead, etc.) that correlate to personality traits.

Putting it all together provides an overall picture of health and personality. Utilizing the SHAPE ReClaimed® program and muscle testing a plan to improve and enhance total health can be developed.

Sign up now for your Facial Analysis with a special introductory offer of $100. Call or email to set up your appointment.

On SHAPE, First Time in 33 Years No Cramping On Cycle

While we have been hearing consistently from our SHAPE clients that they feel better, have less pain and inflammation, this was a first for us and very welcome testimonial:

“I have been on the [SHAPE] drops for 7 days as of today. I had a menstrual cycle for the last 33 years every month with significant cramps at a point that was not able to tolerate them without Tylenol or Ibuprofen for the first 2 days every month.  This is my second day of my cycle and had not need any medication.

🙏🏼🥰🙏🏼🥰🙏🏼🥰” S.S.

Newsletter October 2019: Fall Into SHAPE!

Now is a great time for your own personal fall cleaning. Our clients are experiencing fantastic results with the SHAPE ReClaimed® program. On a personal note I have lost 18.5 pounds of toxicity and to paraphrase my favorite football coach, “We’re on to Phase II.”

Come join us on October 24 from 6-9 PM at the Mequon United Methodist Church to meet Dr. Todd and Linda Frisch, the creators of the program.

We are also happy to announce an event here at Well Body. We have several new practitioners here, of course including Susana with the SHAPE program. The Open House is Thursday, October 10 from 6:30 to 8 PM.

On the first fifteen days of each month you take five drops of the Flu Milieu and the Drainage Milieu. On the fifth day of each month you take five drops of Vaccin-Tox. That’s it!

It is also a good time to stock up on your Congaplex Chewable and Andrographis Complex – two great remedies for when you feel something coming on.

SHAPE, SHAPE, SHAPE – Why Do We Keep Talking About It?

You are probably wondering why we keep talking about SHAPE, why the program has been featured in the last three newsletters. Two reasons: first, it works; and second, it is our desire to help people to live their life to the fullest.

In case you missed them, here are links to two very important articles. I invite you to share them with friends and loved ones.

Newsletter September 2019: SHAPE Success Stories

We will kick off this month’s newsletter with the latest success stories with SHAPE ReClaimed®. This is truly the most effective detoxification and health restoration program we have yet encountered. Plus people are shedding extra pounds!

Our clients are having tremendous success in meeting their goals. Not only are they losing weight, but they are also feeling better. They report that many of their aches and pains are reduced or gone! There are several couples working together, learning a healthy lifestyle, and regaining their health. This testimonial says it all:

“Thank you, Susana and Bernie, for introducing me to SHAPE ReClaimed® at your open house in July. I started the program with Susana, and I have lost over 7 pounds in my first few weeks! I can’t tell you how relieved I am to see a steady decline in my weight after the past two years of constant weight gain and numerous dead-end diets I tried! This is the first time I have had no painful struggles with eating what I need to and getting through the day. I have no cravings, no blood sugar highs and lows—I just feel strong all day. I’m excited to keep on this program because it works and is giving me real results.” Sharon

We wanted to share our excitement about SHAPE ReClaimed® with you and encourage you to spread the word about this fantastic program to anyone you believe would benefit – your family, your friends, your clients, and other acquaintances.

We also wanted to share our own personal experience with SHAPE ReClaimed®. We would never ask anyone to do anything that we would not do ourselves. All the detoxification and weight loss programs that are offered to clients, we have tried personally. SHAPE ReClaimed® is the only program that feels natural while you are doing it. There are no handfuls of pills to swallow. There are no meal replacement shakes that you try to convince yourself taste good, are filling, and are satisfying. There is just real food.

We have discovered many tasty meals, snacks, and deserts with the vast number of SHAPE ReClaimed® approved recipes available. With the other programs the prevailing attitude is, “I can do anything for 14 days (or 21 days).” SHAPE ReClaimed is easy to do and you do not get sick of it. Best of all, it easily transitions into a lifestyle that you can do forever! And there is an awesome Facebook support group. People love it!

Save the date: Thursday evening October 24, 2019. SHAPE ReClaimed® developers Dr. Todd and Linda Frisch will be here in Milwaukee to share their inspiring words about this program. Details will be announced next month.

This month’s newsletter also asks the question, “What if Béchamp was right?” This may lead you to the question, “Who is Béchamp?” More likely you have heard of Louis Pasteur. The two of them were rivals back in the day. Pasteur believed in the germ theory of disease. Béchamp pursued the terrain theory of disease. Pasteur’s views won the day. Today we live with the repercussions of their great debate. See below for more information.

Why SHAPE ReClaimed®? How Did So Many People Become Overweight?

As you are aware, being overweight is a major health issue. If you are overweight, you have a significantly greater risk factor for many health issues and chronic diseases. More than 60% of the US adult population is overweight. Being overweight significantly increases risk for a variety health issues and diseases and results in increased health care costs for those affected.

So, why do we gain weight? The answer is quite simple and probably not a surprise to you. It starts with our food – we eat too much, we eat the wrong proportions, we eat food that is bad for us, and we eat poor quality food. Let me explain what I mean by too much, wrong proportions, bad for us, and poor quality.

To read the remainder of the article click here: How Do We Get Overweight?

Being overweight is a major health issue. If you are overweight, you have a significantly greater risk factor for several health issues including breathing, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, gallstones, Type 2 diabetes, gout, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, sleep apnea, pregnancy difficulties, and cancer. Notice these are among the leading causes of preventable and premature death.

To further explore the health issues related to obesity click here: Consequences of Being Overweight

What if Béchamp Was Right?

“What if Béchamp was right?” This may lead you to the question, “Who is Béchamp?” More likely you have heard of Louis Pasteur. The two of them were rivals back in the day. Pasteur believed in the germ theory of disease. Béchamp pursued the terrain theory of disease. Pasteur’s views won the day. The germ theory has thus been the basis for all modern medicine since then. We encourage you to read these with an open mind. As with many of these controversial topics it is most likely that the truth is a combination of both viewpoints.

To learn all about their debate click here to read the article on the Weston Price Foundation web site: Germ vs. Terrain

There is also an excellent book on the subject by Nancy Appleton, PhD called The Curse of Louis Pasteur. Click here for more details: The Curse of Louis Pasteur

There are some who claim that Pasteur on his death bed said that Béchamp was right, whether that occurred is quite controversial. You can read about that here: Did Pasteur Recant?

Newsletter June 2019: The Joy of Learning

The Joy of Learning

I have mentioned in past newsletters how much I enjoy learning new information and bringing it to the practice to share with you. In May I had the opportunity to attend the Whole Foods Nutrition Conference in Detroit, Michigan where three of my favorite presenters were offering their latest discoveries. What makes these three so special is that they are internationally renowned clinicians. They are not talking theory; they are sharing actual experience. I have spoken of these exceptional practitioners in prior newsletters: Dr. Davis Brockenshire, Dr. Stuart White, and Dr. Randy Tent.

These conferences are very inspirational, hearing the amazing healing stories of real people. This is what makes this work so rewarding which is why I like to share my client stories with you each month.

Another great way to learn is to read books! I have read several very interesting books over the past few months and I wanted to share what I have learned.

June Open House

There will be an Open House on Thursday, June 20 at 7:15 at the office. More detailed information will be emailed next week. The topics will be: 1) Highlights from three of the books alluded to above; and 2) An introduction to three new exciting products and services we will be offering. See below for more details on the new products and services.

The three books we will discuss are: Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker, PhD, I Used to Have Cancer: How I Found My Own Way Back to Health by James Templeton, and How to End the Autism Epidemic by J.B. Handley. As a special treat James Templeton will be live with us for part of the Open House to hear more of his inspirational story. You can find more information about all the books on Amazon.

New Products and Services

We (and I truly mean we as Susana will be the main provider of one of the products) are please to announce several new product and service offerings.

The first is EMF Home and Office Evaluation. While the issue of EMF exposure and safety has been a concern to many of us, the introduction and implementation of 5G networks has taken this to new heights. To help you sort through it all this service will have three objectives:

The third is Muscle Testing Training. Throughout the years I have had many inquiries about how I learned what I do, and several people have expressed an interest in learning the technique. I have decided to set up a formal training program that is designed to meet your specific needs. It is for both beginners and for practitioners who want to learn muscle testing or want to advance their skills and knowledge in muscle testing.

Why Do Itch All Over? – Another Interesting Client Case Resolved

“Hi Bernie, just wanted to tell you the itching is pretty much gone. You were right, it just took time. I don’t think any doctor would have figured out that it was the chemicals. I really appreciate you…thanks again.” F.C.

This client is a cashier in a grocery store. She had chemical toxicity from handing out receipts to each customer!

Newsletter May 2019: The Devil is in the Details

The inspiration for this month’s newsletter comes from two client experiences this past month which illustrate the importance of details when we face health challenges.

The first example is a client with a sensitivity to corn. I have had several clients with corn sensitivities in the past and with each one I learn more about the subtleties of this condition. It is very difficult to completely prevent corn from entering your body because it is hidden in different forms and derivatives in many foods, drinks, and consumer products. Note the terminology “entering your body” as opposed to “removing corn from your diet” because of its inclusion in consumer products such as toothpaste or deodorant.  In most cases it can be identified on product labels, but in other instances (such as alcoholic beverages) it is not required to be on the label due to various labeling laws.

The second example is a client with sensitivity to EMFs. I have devoted several recent articles and newsletters to the dangers of EMFs and the latest technology of 5G. This client’s experience indicates the impact EMF exposure can have when one is already health challenged.

I hope you find these two articles interesting and informative.

Corn: The Less Well Known Just as Serious Food Sensitivity

When you hear that someone has a food allergy or sensitivity what comes first to your mind? If you are like most people it is gluten, wheat, or perhaps dairy. Yet to many people, corn is equally problematic for two reasons – first, it is less known so not considered, and second, it generally acts more subtly.

I have several clients with corn sensitivities, and it is always a similar story – strange symptoms which no one can figure out, which go away when corn is completely removed from the diet. However, completely removing corn is a major challenge. My client correctly states that “corn is in everything.” Not only food and drinks, but consumer items such as toothpaste and deodorant.

I have a list that I provide for my clients of products that contain corn. Including: corn starch, corn syrup, corn meal, glucose, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, maltose, dextrins, cyclodextrins, maltodextrin, emulsifiers, lecithin, citric acid, lactic acid, sorbitol, mannitol, xantham gum, modified and unmodified starches, MSG, ethanol, and organic acids used in plastic.

Recently I have learned some more places where corn is hidden thanks to this recent correspondence from a client with a corn sensitivity:

“I just had a full circle/ ah HA moment and wanted to share with you… with the help of your guidance and knowledge (and internet) I came to realize Tito’s vodka, is 100% made of corn. I had 2 drinks this past weekend with Tito’s vodka, and have had some face issues. Nothing major just wasn’t as good as it was.”

Are EMFs Overloading Your System?

With the introduction of the new 5G technology, the safety of EMFs particularly as related to wireless and cell phone technology, is once again making headline news across the natural health media and even the main stream media. The wireless industry is encountering stiff resistance from local groups requesting that their local governments do not allow 5G installation until there are studies supporting safety. We are seeing many smaller towns and cities across the US, Europe, and throughout the world where these protests are taking place. Some municipalities are removing the WIFI from their schools. Earlier this month, the city of Brussels became the first major city to put a halt to the deployment of 5G.

For more information on this click here: http://www.brusselstimes.com/belgium/12907/brussels-standards-must-be-adapted-to-enable-5g-deployment or here: https://www.worldhealth.net/news/brussels-first-major-city-halt-5g-due-health-effects/.

I would like to share a real-life client experience that occurred this past month. A client came in for a follow up appointment a couple of weeks ago. She reported that since her last appointment she noticed that she was not feeling well and had trouble sleeping. Like other clients, she concluded that it must be the new supplement causing the problem.

Under these circumstances during the muscle testing process I make sure to check if something new is present. And sure enough it was! For the first time ever with this client her body was suggesting EMF interference. Since it had never come up before I was a little surprised. So, I hesitatingly asked, “Has your exposure to EMFs increased recently?”

Her response, “Funny you should mention that. We recently put a new smart TV in the bedroom.” I asked, “When was that?”. The reply, “Right after my last appointment.” “Well, that is likely your problem,” I responded.

Newsletter April 2019: The Wonderful Weston A. Price Foundation

I have decided to devote this newsletter to the wonderful work of the Weston A. Price Foundation. I am one of the Co-Directors (with Susan Wichman and Laurie Meyer) of the Ozaukee/Washington County Chapter. The Foundation provides a plethora of helpful information on current topics affecting our health.   While the original work of Dr. Price focused mainly on food, the Foundation has expanded its areas of interest to include environmental issues, pesticides, vaccinations, and other controversial topics.

As we know good health starts at the farm or ranch with healthy soil and healthy animals. The Weston A. Price Foundation helps citizens find food from chemical-free and pasture-based farms through its local chapter system.

The Foundation provides support to farmers who raise produce and pasture-fed meat, eggs, and dairy products.

All the information that the foundation provides is evidence-based.

For a quick review of the work of Dr. Weston A. Price click here: https://brwellness.com/?p=1289

Click here for the Weston A. Price Foundation website: https://www.westonaprice.org/

I strongly urge you to become a member of the Foundation. For just $40 per year you receive a quarterly journal Wise Traditions with all their latest articles of interest. All the Journals are available online, but donations are still helpful and appreciated! Here’s a link to the Journals: https://www.westonaprice.org/category/journal/

Below are a few of the highlights from the most recent Wise Traditions, Winter 2018. I trust you will find them entertaining and enlightening!

The Crowd’s Dietary Wisdom

This may be my favorite article from this issue. The author, Tom Naughton, explains why we should listen to crowds, not experts! You will see how the “experts” believe they now best what is good for you and how they manipulate the uninformed to follow their point of view.

Several years ago, he directed the documentary Fat Head which I definitely encourage you to watch.

Sunscreens: The Dark Side of Avoiding the Sun

This is another excellent article, especially as the weather (finally) turns warm. In this article Elizabeth Plourde enlightens us on the chemicals and nanoparticles in sunscreens. The widespread use of sunscreens has resulted not only in increased skin cancers but in contamination of the world’s water sources.

When Susana and I were in Australia at the Great Barrier Reef it was mandatory to wear a full wet suit when going in the water. The reason stated was to protect the reef from all the sunscreen. The chemicals are killing the ocean life. Makes you wonder what they might be doing to us!

Vaccinations

This is probably the one of the most divisive health issues confronting society today.  Whatever your view may be, I would recommend you to take a look at the Foundation’s new flyer devoted to this topic. It is a fact-based approach to the discussion looking at Myths and Facts about vaccinations, how to best build immunity, best practices if forced to vaccinate, and known harmful ingredients that are in vaccinations.

March 2019 Newsletter: March Madness – What’s the Right Diet for Me?

While filling out your NCAA Tournament Bracket can be challenging, nothing can be more maddening than trying to figure out your optimal diet. There are so many options and opinions, all claiming to be the best! The truth is that we are all different – different genes, different histories, different life circumstances, different metabolisms – and all these factors affect our health and what is the best diet for you. As a base line it is important to eat clean and healthy food, but after that the mixture of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats is not going to be the same for everyone.

One of the latest trending diets is the Keto Diet. At first all we heard was the successes, but now more and more nutritionists are writing about how it is not the perfect diet for everyone. In this month’s feature article, I offer my thoughts on the subject. See below for “To Keto or Not…That is the Question.”

Susana and I are just back from our trip to Australia. It was one of the most beautiful places we have visited. Charming cities, breath-taking landscapes, and wonderful people. If it is not on your bucket list you may want to reconsider!

Exciting news: I am making this one-time special offer for new clients to save $100 on their initial consult if they are referred by existing clients or readers of this newsletter! This offer is good for the month of March only. This is a great time for you to remind your loved ones, friends, and colleagues that you have encouraged to make an appointment, that NOW is the time!

To Keto or Not…That is The Question

It seems everybody is talking about the Keto Diet. You may have tried it yourself, or you may know someone who has tried it. It may have worked great or not. Any outcome is possible, as with all diets it is critical to remember we all have different body chemistries and what works for one could be difficult for someone else.

In this article we will look at the history of the Keto Diet, the positives, the negatives, and why it may or may not work for you. For the rest of the article click here: https://brwellness.com/?p=1282

Success Story – GI Upsets No More

“I have been suffering with GI upset for years and could never figure out what the problem was. I tried giving up certain foods that I thought were the source of the problem however I continued to run to the bathroom after almost every meal. I had seen a few doctors and they just kept telling me it was IBS and sent me on my way but I was still suffering and wanted an answer. I was referred to Bernie by a friend and boy am I glad I saw him! He figured out that I had a mold that was causing the upset as well as a few foods that I was sensitive to that I ate pretty frequently. After only a few short months of taking supplements and avoiding dairy and cashews I actually forgot that I used to have any digestion problems in the first place! Even my friends and family have noticed the difference! I am now eating the right foods for my body, taking supplements to get rid of the mold, and I am no longer going to the bathroom 5-6 times a day!”  K.T.

February 2019 Newsletter: Two of the Biggest Threats to Your Health

Winter is here! Today has been a snow day here in Milwaukee. I have been working from home, catching up on e-mails, talking to out-of-state clients, and rescheduling all my in-town clients. We’ve had about 7-10 inches of snow and more seems to be coming. The below zero weather comes later in the week. Needless to say, Susana and I are looking forward to our two-week trip to Australia coming up!

Per my earlier e-mail – the office will be closed beginning February 2 and I will be back the afternoon of February 19. I’m sending out this newsletter a few days early so that if you need supplies you will still have time to get them before I go. Please let me know as soon as possible so we can schedule a pick up.

This newsletter will be brief and will focus on what I believe are two of the major threats to our collective health: the coming rollout of 5G technology and glyphosate (the active ingredient in RoundUp).

Dangerous Substance #1: 5G

The new cell phone technology called 5G is beginning to be rolled out nationwide. The good news is it will be very fast and enable all kinds of new and amazing technology breakthroughs. The bad news is it may threaten your health. From what I have been hearing I have many concerns about the potential negative health effects from its deployment.

Here are some articles for you:

While 5G is the latest technology, there are also concerns about EMFs which I have shared in the past. Here’s a great video from Nick Penault he calls EMF 101: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEHx6d7jpHQ

Dangerous Substance #2: Glyphosate

Glyphosate. Ever heard of it? Probably not. So, let me introduce it to you – it is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup®. The more I learn about it, the more I am concerned. The more I learn about it, the more I am convinced that it may be the number one enemy of good health and the main pathway to so many of the modern diseases we now experience. And if nothing else, it is a great reason to eat organic.

Client Success Story: Natural Supplements to Reduce Period Symptoms

“Thanks to Bernie and his supplement help, my period and period symptoms have become extremely tolerable.  I went from taking 5+ Advil each day due to awful period cramps and body fatigue. After seeing Bernie for about 1 month, I have decreased my Advil intake during my period to only 2 throughout my whole cycle.  I have never been on birth control before because I hated the thought of it and what it could do to my body.  This process has been better than even the thought of birth control to control my period and every changing hormones.” C.S

January 2019 Newsletter: Happy New Year – Let’s Make 2019 Your Healthiest Year Ever!

Happy New Year – Let’s Make 2019 Your Healthiest Year Ever!

With the New Year our thoughts turn to our annual New Year’s resolutions. This year let us all resolve that 2019 will be our healthiest year ever! We will do what we need to do – eat healthier, exercise more, and engage in activities that reduce our mental and emotional stress.

This may seem like a lot to do. My advice is to do what you can. Create success that builds on success. The path to be your healthiest self involves multiple steps. Take them one at a time and keep moving forward!  One of the best ways to be successful is to have a partner or partners walking the path with you. Share your successes; motivate and support each other when you struggle.

An even more significant resolution may be to help someone else become healthier in 2019. Many of you mention a friend or loved one that you would like to come see me. Now is the perfect time to encourage them to set up an appointment. Let us make 2019 the healthiest year ever for everyone we know!

This newsletter has the final installment of the articles overviewing the macronutrients. See below for Fabulous Fats!

Did you overdo it during the Holiday Season? Looking for a cleanse or detoxification program? If so, see the article below on what type of program is best for you.

Fabulous Fats!

In this final installment of articles overviewing the macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate, and fat) we complete the picture with fat. Everybody knows that fat is bad for you.  Right? Well, not exactly.  It is fat that has been most unjustly demonized.  We have been suffering from a low-fat craze for the last thirty years.  Everybody (well not really everyone!) has been convinced that fat is bad for us and should be avoided at all costs.  So, what has happened?  We got fatter!  Obesity rates are going through the roof.

What’s Right for You?

This is the time of the year when we re-focus on our health. There are a couple of reasons for that. First, it is a New Year, so it is time to make changes – eat better, exercise more, and lose weight. Second, many of us recognize the Holiday Season took its toll. We notice a few extra pounds, an overall sensation of not feeling our best, and it seems we’re either getting sick or fighting off a cold or flu. Then the natural human desire to feel better takes hold.

We look for a solution, something to make us feel better. This is typically some type of “diet” or “weight loss program” or “cleanse.” There are many programs to choose from, but the important question is what is best for you. In determining that you need to understand the different types of programs available.

I classify programs into three main categories: purification or detoxification programs, gut purification programs, and weight loss programs.
