TRAUMA LIVES IN YOUR BODY

Beautiful Woman;

Rare is the woman who has not experienced trauma. Are you aware of a trauma that continues to trigger strong reactions of fear, rage, grief or helplessness – on a weekly or even daily basis?

If so, you’re in good company. Or perhaps you’re unaware of a particular trauma, but grew up in a household of neglect or abuse, and only know that your body and world have never felt like a safe place to reside. Personally, I can relate to both of these scenarios – and trauma has always showed up in my body as physical symptoms.

Here’s how this works: a traumatic event from the past causes triggers in the present, and these triggers create a chemical cascade of stress hormones that flood your bloodstream and tissues. In time, these chemicals wreak havoc on the health of your cells and decrease immune function, which leads to an overall decline in health. Over years of helping women heal from all kinds of chronic health conditions, I’ve found that trauma often lies at the root of many dis-ease processes.

So what constitutes trauma? Trauma is defined in different ways, but here’s my definition: an overwhelming experience that renders you helpless and/or hyper-vigilant, or a consistent reality that feels out-of-control and unbearable. Trauma can disrupt  your system to such an extent, that a part of your consciousness splits off and remains frozen in time, while protective mechanisms such as denial, rationalization and avoidance kick into high-gear, to guard your consciousness from terror, shock, grief or other overwhelming emotions.

And here’s one of the main problems that persists: trauma that resides in the body may rob you of a sense of freewill, keeping you stuck in a painful past, and not being fully alive in the present.

Have you ever wondered how many psychiatric diagnoses may actually be attributed to trauma? Anxiety disorder, depression, Bipolar, OCD, even ADD. So many people are given drugs for these conditions. But drugs cannot cure trauma – only dampen a physiology that’s reacting to fear and overwhelm, based on an event from the past.

How many chronic illnesses have at their root trauma? Autoimmunity, cancer, persistent infection, ovarian cysts, infertility, inflammatory bowel disease – these are just some of the health issues that I’ve seen with trauma at their root.

If a person is unable to identify their feelings because they are too overwhelming and painful, they may show up in the body as migraines, fibromyalgia, IBS, back pain or fatigue. These are just some of the ways that  trauma manifests in the body.

In the seminal book, The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel Van Der Kolk, MD, he states, “trauma robs you of the feeling that you are in charge of yourself, of what I will call self-leadership. The challenge of recovery is to reestablish ownership of your body and your mind – of your self. This means feeling free to know what you know and to feel what you feel without becoming overwhelmed, enraged, ashamed or collapsed.”

I would also add that healing from trauma gives you an opportunity to overcome the addictions that you’ve used to numb your consciousness. Intolerable feelings are often habitually masked by food, alcohol, screen-time or shopping. This is how your addictions function for you – keeping you from experiencing painful or overwhelming feelings in the moment.

Van Der Kolk also states, “It is especially challenging for traumatized people to discern when they are actually safe and to be able to activate their defenses when they are in danger.” This points to how trauma, can keep you enmeshed in very unhealthy situations. And I love the following statement of Van Der Kolk, which I find both poetic and tragic: “Trauma can turn the whole world into a gathering of aliens.” For those of us who have been traumatized by family members and those who were supposed to love and care for us, it can make all of humanity feel unsafe.

So how do we heal trauma that resides in the body? What does this look like? To start with, it’s a matter of recovering of a sense of safety, and learning to tolerate your difficult feelings without becoming overwhelmed.

If you’ve been effected by trauma, you need to learn to befriend the sensations in the body that feel threatening. Yoga, massage and other somatic therapies are great for this. Physical self-awareness is the first step, which is the basis for trauma therapies like Somatic Experiencing –  where trauma is accessed and discharged via physical sensations and habitual gestures. Flower Essence Therapy is another wonderful tool that I’ve used with my clients for over 18 years. It is a gentle yet powerful catalyst for releasing trauma at the root.

Ultimately, humans are social beings, and traumatized people recover best in the context of relationships. Trusted relationships help us to tolerate and process the reality of what happened to us. Having a strong social support is the most powerful healer when it comes to trauma, says Van Der Kolk: “Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.”

Recovery involves reconnecting with others that are safe, learning to tolerate your feelings without becoming overwhelmed, and ultimately integrating the aspects of your self that have been split off, and remain frozen in time. Integration also means putting the traumatic event into its proper place in the overall arc of your life.

One of the most powerful therapeutic tools for healing trauma is sharing your story in the presence of supportive people, and turning it into a narrative to be shared. If you’ve been hurt and victimized, it’s vital to acknowledge and name what’s happened to you. Feeling listened to and understood actually changes your physiology, which further helps you feel safe. Without language and context, your awareness may be limited to a vague sense of fear unconnected to the appropriate source.

I love to utilize and recommend artistic expression: journal writing, music, dance, and something I call “rage dumps” – where you use your imagination to play out the rage you feel towards a person that’s wronged you. It can be amazingly cathartic and freeing!

Telling your truth and the story of what happened to you is a powerful stance that changes you on a cellular level. To this end, I’d like to invite to come over to my FB page, to share your story of trauma: https://www.facebook.com/naturalhealingforwomen
I will respectfully read and hold space for each and every sharing.

Identifying what you feel in your body, sharing your story, releasing it, and then finding new ground – this is the pathway out of trauma…the pathway out of living a life on repeat loop and feeling trapped. This is the pathway to freedom.

I’m wishing you this complete freedom and healing from trauma…today and always.

With Love and Healing,

Carla

MYSTERIOUS SYMPTOMS? Answers Inside…

Beautiful Woman;

Do you have mysterious symptoms, that no doctor or practitioner has been able to explain or get to the bottom of? Have you tried way too many remedies and therapies, but seem to end up back with the same old issues?

If so, you’re not alone. As a sensitive, spiritually-evolved woman, symptoms show up in your body and behave differently than for others. Doctor’s assessments, lab tests and medical studies often don’t pick up or understand your bodily symptoms. Why? Because these tools are so much grosser and more limited than your body is at FEELING things.

FEELINGS are your super-power! And often times, you can feel things in your body, long before they become evident on lab tests or to a doctor’s perception.

Just because you are able to feel things which may be too subtle to be picked up by medical science, doesn’t mean they’re not valid (even if your doctor looks at you like you’re crazy!) On the contrary, your physical symptoms are pointing to something off-kilter in your system, and need to be deciphered and understood.

This is how your body, (psyche and soul) gets your attention. And it’s critical to take these symptoms seriously, understand their message, and then take action to bring about resolution.

Fatigue. Bodily Pain. Headaches. Sleeplessness. Food Intolerances. Bloating, Constipation/Diarrhea. Menstrual issues. Etc….

Below is a small sampling of CAUSES, of where your mystery symptoms may stem from:

Hard-to-detect infection (viral, fungal, parasitic, bacterial) that hasn’t been tested for, or is hard to pick up on lab tests,
environmental sensitivities, hormonal imbalance, gut toxicity, vitamin/mineral imbalance, history of trauma, emotional stress, spiritual or energetic issue, MTHFR and other clearance problems. And SO much more!!!

Half of these things the medical community doesn’t even believe in! The other half can be very difficult to decipher. That’s why it’s vital to look for answers outside of the mainstream box.

And…what to do if your symptoms are rooted in trauma, emotional or spiritual realms? That’s where energy work, trauma-resolution and other insight-methods come into the picture – the realm where I love to help my clients find answers.

I’d love to hear from you, if you deal with mystery symptoms, and have trouble finding answers. You are meant to get to their root and truly heal, so you can get on with the life that you were meant to live.

With Love and Healing,

Carla

F*CK CHRONIC ILLNESS – YOU CAN HEAL!!!

Beautiful Woman;
Okay, maybe this title is a bit inflammatory, but I got somewhat  triggered recently, after seeing a famous health and lifestyle coach, leading the charge for those, “living with chronic illness.”

Don’t get me wrong…I’m certainly in favor of empowering any marginalized group, such as those living with a chronic illness. Lord knows, I’ve spent much of my life in this category! However, I’m also aware what a slippery slope it can be, to take on this   definition and make it a part of your identity.

Chronic diseases are defined broadly as conditions that last 1 year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both. And it is generally agreed that they are on the rise. The CDC states that 6 out of every 10 Americans have a chronic disease, and 4 out of 10 have two or more chronic diseases.

These statistics are pretty shocking right, and say something really important about the spectrum of health and illness in our culture, including the phenomenon that illness breeds more illness.

Is it any wonder? Our medical system and culture at large enables disease by labeling it as “chronic”, and sticking patients on medications indefinitely, without any projection of renewed health, or the understanding for how real healing takes place.

You see, the diagnosis of chronic disease and prescription drugs go hand in hand, ensuring ongoing dependence on a pharmaceutical industry that’s driven by profits, more than health or helping those in need.

Depression, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Autoimmune disease, Back Pain, Diabetes, Cancer, Fibroids, recurring UTIs, Cervical Dysplasia. All of these ailments are looked on by conventional medicine as a progressive process that will get worse over time unless medical intervention keeps the process static.

In my opinion, there’s been a massive cultural brainwashing around the progressive and ongoing nature of illness that’s taken place over the last 50 years, dictating the reality of Chronic Disease, and the need to spend your life dependent on a drug that keeps your physiology permanently altered, in order to keep your symptoms and disease process at bay.

It wasn’t always this way. For instance, my grandmother, who came from the “old country”, lived to be 100 years old, and never spent a day in the hospital until the last year of her life. She was never on any medications, and always healthy–which she attributed to her daily intake of wheat germ! This, in sharp contrast to my parents, who took handfuls of daily medication, prescribed for their chronic diagnoses.

What disturbs me about the term, “living with chronic illness”, is the reinforcement of the concept of it’s permanence, as though illness or disease is ever static or incurable, or something that we need to learn to live with gracefully. I don’t believe this…not for a minute. I know you can HEAL! It’s a process yes, and it may take time and effort, but it’s what your body was built for.

What gets me even more riled, is the helplessness that this view of illness breeds, dictating a profoundly disempowering relationship with your body and health.

But I’ll bet that somewhere inside yourself, you don’t believe this concept of illness either. And you know why? Because it’s not true! It’s a lie you’ve been sold by those who stand to profit by it. Not to say that your doctors evil…she’s as much a victim as this system as you are—a system that knows NOTHING of the body’s ability to heal. But somewhere, deep in your bones, you haven’t forgotten, knowing that there’s got to be a better way. You have not forgotten the truth of HEALING.

My heroes are those who are busting this cultural mythology, letting us know that our body, psyche and soul have the capacity to heal in full, in order to thrive in life. Actually, your body is constantly trying to achieve balance and health. The spectrum between health and illness is a dynamic process always working in your favor, if allowed to take it’s natural course, and assisted by the appropriate remedies.

Doctors such as John Sarno, Mark Hyman, Christiane Northrup and Joe Dispenza are some of my heroes/heroines at the forefront of busting this myth. But there are all kinds of amazing people leading this charge as well. Just the other day, I met a woman at a party, who has a business around helping people come off of their psychiatric meds. She wrote a book, “Freedom From Psychiatric Drugs” that you can find on Amazon or on her website, www.chayagrossberg.com. Thank goodness for these meds when needed, for sure. But our medical system gets stuck there, never remembering that there’s a level of health and wellness unassisted by medication.

Honestly, I don’t believe in chronic illness, at least not in the way that it is perceived by our culture at large. I believe that your body is ALWAYS ready to create health and balance, even if there are deeper levels to investigate, in order to heal in full. It may require delving into the emotional and/or energetic roots of your ailment, in order for your body to find true balance. But this is the healing journey — that which brings not only physical health, but also empowerment and integration of your whole being.

This is the type of health and healing that I wish for you, today and always.

With Love and Healing,

Carla

Juicy~Sexy Peri/Menopause: Recipe Inside!

Beautiful Woman;
It’s so exciting to be living in a time when we get to rewrite the rules of what it means to be a woman in the Peri/Menopausal years.

I wholeheartedly believe that the stereotype of the dried-up peri/menopausal woman is a misogynistic myth that’s so over and done. Isn’t it laughable to think that you reached your peak some 10, 15 or even 20 years ago? I for one, believe that my most amazing years are ahead of me, and right here at this incredible moment in time.

The truth is, there’s no consensus on why, or even if a woman’s sexuality wanes at menopause, accompanying her falling hormones. This topic has long intrigued me because I’ve always intuited that the common wisdom was wrong, and neglected to factor in the complexity of a woman’s being, especially in relationship to her body, emotional landscape and sexuality.

As women, sexuality is so much more than a physiological phenomenon. Our sexuality lives in the realm of the emotional, psychological, spiritual and sacred. That’s why our culture’s attempt to medicalize a woman’s sexuality has never worked. Definitely easier when it comes to male sexuality, as evidenced by the popularity of the drug Viagra. But there’s a reason that there’s no correlate for women.

Decreasing hormones. Hot flashes. Dry vagina. Feeling old and unattractive. Does all of this add up to a death of your sexuality? Or does your sexuality just go underground for other reasons? What do you think?

Over years of listening to women’s stories, I’ve come to believe that the biggest influence on a woman’s sexuality is relational. Meaning, not only the relationship with your significant other, but even more importantly, the relationship with your own body. Because if you’ve spent most of your life care-taking other’s needs, and neglecting to nurture this most vital aspect of your self, you may well feel unsure if it still exists.

When I was still in my 30s and practicing gynecology in NYC, a question on the intake-form was around sexual activity. And, I was always interested to hear from my patients in their menopausal years. The truth is, most of these stories weren’t hopeful. So many peri/menopausal women reported being in sexless marriages, or happily single but feeling, “dead down there.” 

However, there were the intriguing exceptions! I was always captivated by women in their later years who reported sexual satisfaction. I remember one such gorgeous lady, close to 70, with long silver hair, straight spine and aquiline nose. When I asked about sexual activity, she said, “yup, I never lost that.” And then she flashed a mischievous smile.

I remember another glowing woman in her 60’s, who’d recently fell in love for the first time in her life. She actually became so juicy and hormonal, that she got a period! That’s the power of love, and the hormonal/emotional connection I’m always referring to.

Of course, biologically speaking, sexuality is about procreation. And there’s a long-standing cultural view belief that once our bodies no longer have this potential –to bare young– that your sexuality quietly withers. But is this true?

After working in reproductive women’s health for over 20 years, I still had questions about all of this myself. But then, something really interesting happened for me. Quite unexpectedly, my long-term marriage came to a screeching halt at age 53 — when I was already post-menopausal. And the most amazing thing happened — my libido shot through the roof! Here’s what I’ve learned through this journey, and have now come to believe about sexuality in peri/menopause.

That even more than procreation, even more than the aspect of pleasure that sex brings…the most vital aspect of sexuality is about the need for connection. It’s about the most basic human need for connection and intimacy: to be revealed, seen and loved.

As humans, we are wired for connection, love and pleasure. And this part of ourselves never grows old. It’s always present, even if we dis-acknowledge it. Even if we feel too unattractive for it. Even when our partner feels too far away for it. It is always there. Waiting…

Until the day we die, we have the need for connection with other humans, deep connection, intimate connection. As women, this is the most fundamental aspect of sexuality in our menopausal years. The deep sense of connection, pleasure and joy, shared with another human being, that our hearts and bodies yearn for.

So, if you’ve been questioning if you’re just too old for sex, or feeling that you’re sexuality’s dead…think again. Spend some time with your body and ask her what she longs for. Maybe she needs self-love and self-pleasuring. Maybe she needs the touch of another. Deep listening will bring you to places that may be long buried.

And here’s my view on vulvo/vaginal dryness in the menopausal years. Vaginal dryness generally feeds into the idea of the menopausal woman as “dried up” and crusty. But I like to think of my vagina in this phase of life as reverting back to that of myself as a young girl, before my vagina was primed with estrogen. Your vulva/vagina is just as perfect now, as it was then. Just as sweet.

Here are some fabulous recipes for keeping yourself feeling sexy and juicy in your peri/menopausal years:

1) Moisturize your vulva/vagina every day. That’s right ladies – it’s not just the face and neck that needs moisturizing in this phase of life. I love to make my own moisturizer with organic oils and cocoa butter. Just smoothing it on feels so damn lovely! Or, you can purchase these natural products below, so pure, you could eat them. They also make great sexual lubricants.

Avena Botanicals : Yoni cream
Woodland Essence: Love Butter Balm

2) Green Jasper gem essence from Alaskan EssencesThis remedy will help you get back in touch with your inner “wild woman” and with your natural rhythms.

3) Replenish Compound by Herbalist and Alchemist This herbal formula is chock-full of herbs to help with lubrication and juiciness.

4) Regular Exercise – the great health panacea! It’s so important to stay limber, keep pain levels low and feel good in our bodies.

5) Beauty/attractiveness – I’m definitely a member of the “Beauty At Any Age” movement. I think that beauty is part of our birthright as women, which comes from the inside/out, and depends on so much more than clothes and makeup. There is no woman as beautiful as the one who is genuinely in her joy, which may involve gardening, singing, spending time with a close friend or lover, or nurturing a child.

These are my thoughts for a beautiful and gratifying relationship with your body and sexuality–no matter what age or phase of life you happen to be.

Sending you blessings for health, healing & beauty – today and always.

With Love and Healing,

Carla

Peri/Menopause: the Best Kept Secret!

Beautiful Woman;
If you’re currently suffering with hot flashes, sleeplessness, weight gain, low libido and other agonizing symptoms of Peri/Menopause, you may be wondering what I could possibly mean, referring to peri/menopause as, “the best kept secret.” But trust me…on the other side of all these symptoms, there awaits an oasis of calm and fluidity that you never dreamed possible in the height of your reproductive years.

Why? Because during the reproductive years, a woman’s body is constantly CYCLING: meaning your hormones are rolling up and down, up and down, like a roller coaster at the 4H Fair. And guess what’s cycling right along with your hormones…that’s right, your EMOTIONAL landscape!

This may be beautiful and poetic and all that it means to be a woman, yada, yada yada. BUT, it’s also an incredible energy drain that you’re probably not even aware of, because it’s such an integral part of your reality.

However, there’s another phase to your life, the next phase of your life, or the one that you’re currently pushed up against the wall of, that is free of this constant up and down, up and down, dizzying motion. There is an smooth, placid, stream of energy that awaits, and this is the beauty of Menopause.

Like any transition, it may feel scary or difficult or down-right intolerable. Change is generally not without it’s challenges. And…I’ll clue you in on a little secret: if you have a history of sexual trauma, mother wounding, birth trauma or other 2nd chakra disturbance, this transition is going to feel even more dramatic. Why? Because, uncomfortable symptoms are how your body gets your attention! This is how your inner wisdom gets you to stop, take notice, and finally do the deep healing that will bring full resolution, and therefore, health and wellbeing to your entire system.

Another reason menopause can be scary is because our culture dictates that women dry up in this phase of life, and lose their sexuality altogether. But is it true? In my experience of working with women over 25 years, decreased libido IS a normal part of the transition. However, on the other side, the nerve endings in your “pleasure-machinery” are just as exquisitely sensitive and alive. It may just take the right support, chemistry and connection to get things going.

I’m very excited to share more with you about this topic (especially the sexuality piece…) I love teaching women about how to grow more alive and vibrant in this phase of life.

So if you’re needing support or inspiration to find your balance in this phase, or to truly get healthy at this moment of life, you’re in luck!

I’m offering a handful of Complimentary Healing Awareness Callsto teach how to embrace this sacred transition, in order to become more whole, vibrant and alive.

Recover Your Feminine Health, 1:1 Call with Me

Beautiful Woman;
I know the frustration of living with a chronic health issue that holds you back from living your fullest life… a condition that no doctor has great solutions for, only medications and procedures that don’t feel like the right direction for you.

Tell me, have you been dealing with any of the following health conditions, for far too long?

Hormonal Imbalance
Bad periods
Peri/Menopause
HPV/Cervical Dysplasia
Infertility
Ovarian Cysts
Fibroids
Constipation/diarrhea/gut problems
Mystery Illness
Chronic Fatigue
Addictive/Emotional eating patterns

If you’ve been battling any of these ailments, and haven’t found full relief, I want you to ask yourself if you can also relate with any of these issues?

Relationship struggles
Narcissistic/Codependent patterns
A Mother Wound
Feeling stuck around your true purpose
Sexual trauma and it’s aftermath
Financial struggles

You see, your physical symptoms are not separate from the whole of you, the entire constellation of your being. They are an extension of your larger self, a part of your self that seeks expression and resolution.

Like my client Nerissa, an incredible artist, who came to me to heal her pelvic health, but in order to do so, had to confront the problems that were expressing through her symptoms.

Since working with Carla, I’ve reconnected to my sense of self, found safety in own body, healed my relationship with my mother, let go of a dead-end romantic relationship, and lost the incessant background noise of anxiety and insecurity. After tapping into my purpose in this lifetime, I feel more peaceful and powerful than ever, and have found my flow. And, I just found out that my uterine fibroid has disappeared! 

You see, this is how your body gets your attention. Just like this client, your body, in it’s infinite intelligence, has the capacity to fully and completely heal, given the proper remedies and support. But it won’t do so until you hear what your symptoms are attempting to express. Healing occurs once you take the necessary actions to create the lasting change that your soul is longing for.

If this sounds like a perspective that intrigues you, in order tofinally get your health back, and you’d like to understand on a deeper level…you’re in luck!

I’m offering a handful of Complimentary Healing Awareness Calls, to teach how this works. To show you how to heal your physical symptoms, at the same time that you expand in self-awareness and become more vibrant and alive.

But you’ll need to contact me today, because space is limited. Simply CLICK HERE to schedule your spot.

I look forward to meeting you there.

Is WEIGHT A Painful Word?!?

If this has been your experience, please know that just because a weight issue has been with you seemingly forever, it doesn’t mean that it’s immutable or can’t shift. As a matter of fact, if your weight issue is still plaguing you, that’s actually your inner wisdom letting you know that you need to keep searching for an answer.

This moment in time presents so much possibility and potential for change, it truly feels like anything is possible. Can you feel it too?!?

The truth is, there is so much freedom that’s possible for you, on the other side of an enduring weight issue. If addictive eating patterns still have a hold over you, this is the very moment to finally resolve this struggle once and for all.

I understand your skepticism, after so many years of trying…everything! But trust me, you can become one of those people that never thinks about your next meal, and leaves your plate only half-eaten, because you’re no longer hungry.

I believe that somewhere inside, you know that you have the potential to become this person. You’ve already figured out what doesn’t work — you’ve probably been down that road more times than you care to count.

There is a way to resolve to this issue, to bring you to complete peace and harmony in your body and with food.And it has nothing to do with a secret formula for how to eat. Or specific foods to restrict.

Rather, it has everything to do with unraveling a coping mechanism that you learned early on in life. Your complete and absolute freedom from this issue lies in unraveling this mechanism, and confronting the conflicting needs within yourself. 

I know because I did it myself, many years ago now, after a lifetime of struggle and torment. But once I came to understand how this coping mechanism functioned for me, and could meet it face on, I never needed to use food emotionally again. From here, food lost it’s power over me. I was free to eat healthfully and lose unwanted weight. From here, it all became uncomplicated.

The way to freedom has nothing to do with behavior modification. It has nothing to do with the latest cleanse, or intermittent fasting, or any eating plan. Trust me, I’ve done them all. I’ve eaten SO many different ways for different types of health issues. But no plan for eating is going to work if you use food emotionally. Because here’s the truth: your emotions always win out, every time. Over logic. Over what’s good for you. Over everything.

However, there is wisdom to be gleaned in these emotions. They are our teachers. When we learn to hear what they’re trying to teach us, we no longer need to struggle.

There is a path to freedom, and it lies in self-awareness and deep self-love. It lies in understanding how you use food emotionally, and what needs it serves. And from here, discovering a new way. 

It’s your birthright to feel free and beautiful in your body, and you can learn a new way of coping with painful emotions, even boredom and loneliness. You can learn how to get your needs met in safe ways.

Cultural conditioning tells us that weight loss is simply a matter of discipline and will power. But I know that real and lasting change in this arena only comes through insight and wisdom….and deep Self-Love, which may be the most potent ingredient that has been missing all along.

Listen, if you can relate to all I’ve shared, I would LOVE to teach you how to get there…to that promised land of complete and utter peace in your body and with food, releasing that excess weight and never looking back.

I’m offering a handful of Complimentary Insight Calls, in order to bring you closer to your goal as quickly as possible.

Also, please pass this information along to friends and family that are in need of this profound healing.

LOSE WEIGHT, END FOOD ADDICTION: 1:1 CALL w ME

Here’s the thing: when it comes to your body, I want you to experience the beautiful freedom and ease that comes with overcoming the struggle with food and weight, forever.

Do you think that it’s possible for you to be one of those people that never thinks about your next meal, and forgets about the chocolate bar sitting in your cabinet, only throw it out months later because it’s gone stale?

I believe that somewhere inside, you believe that this is your destiny. You’ve already figured out what doesn’t work…DIETING! You’ve probably been down that road more times than you care to count.

There is a way to resolve to this problem, to bring you to complete peace and harmony in your body and with food. And it has nothing to do with a secret formula for how to eat. Or specific foods to restrict.

Rather, it has everything to do with unraveling a coping mechanism that you learned early on in life. Your complete and absolute freedom from this issue lies in unraveling this mechanism, by confronting the conflicting needs within yourself, and learning new ways of coping.

But once I came to understand how this coping mechanism functioned for me, and could meet it face on, I never needed to use food emotionally again. From here, I was free to eat healthfully and lose unwanted weight. From here, it all became uncomplicated.

The way to freedom has nothing to do with the latest cleanse, or intermittent fasting, keto, or any eating plan. Trust me, I’ve done them all. I’ve eaten SO many different ways for different types of health issues.

But no plan for eating is going to work in the long term, if you use food emotionally. Because here’s the truth: your emotions will win out, every time. Over logic. Over discipline. Over what’s good for you. Over everything.

You see, there is wisdom to be gleaned in these emotions. They are our teachers. When we learn to hear what they’re trying to teach us, we no longer need to turn to food to block them out. Once we can meet them face-on, the power that food had over us loses it’s grip.

There is a path to freedom, and it lies in self-awareness and deep self-love. It lies in understanding how you use food emotionally, and what needs it serves. And from here, discovering a new way to get those needs met.

It’s your birthright to feel free and beautiful in your body, and you can learn a new way of coping with painful emotions, even boredom and loneliness. You can learn how to get your needs met in safe ways. You can learn new ways to protect yourself, rather than the armor of extra weight.

Cultural conditioning tells us that weight loss is simply a matter of discipline and will power. But nothing could be further from the truth. I know that real and lasting change in this arena only comes through insight and wisdom….and deep Self-Love, which may be the most important ingredient that has been missing all along.

Listen sisters, if you can relate to all I’ve shared, I would LOVE to teach you how to get there…to that promised land of complete and utter peace in your body and with food, releasing that excess weight and never looking back.

That’s why I’m offering a handful of Complimentary Insight Calls, to teach how this works. To teach you how to lose weight, end food addiction and live your most expressed life.

Needing a PARASITE CLEANSE??

Dearest Beauty;

I hope your summer is flowing beautifully, filled with relaxation, joy and spiritual growth. Mine has been chock-full, mostly of the the spiritual growth kind–which is always that magical blend of bliss and upheaval!

I just got back from a pilgrimage to Glastonbury, England, where I traveled to sacred sites, and deep into my heart and soul…and honestly, haven’t quite landed yet .

Here’s a few photos, for a little taste, even if they don’t quite capture the true adventure:

A large piece of my physical healing this year has been around gut healing, and the most profound impact I’ve had to this end has been in the realm of a Parasite Cleanse. I’ve come to believe that the bulk of gut issues have to do with parasites that may have been with you for a lifetime. So gross, I know!

If you have bloating, constipation or loose, frequent stools, discomfort or gas on a near daily basis….you’re very likely in need of a parasite cleanse. 

One of the trickiest parts of healing your gut health has to do with the fact that whatever you’re accustomed to feels normal. And if you have a bit of improvement in this area, you figure you’re probably good. But are you? I encourage you to get honest about your digestive and elimination issues.

Healthy digestion means that you barely notice this function at all, and are energized by both eating and elimination. Healthy elimination means that your colon clears out completely on a daily basis, without pain, discomfort, watery stools or profuse gas and bloating. Is this you? If not, here are some things to consider…

Other symptoms associated with intestinal parasites, that may be impacting your health include:

Fatigue, headaches, skin issues, anxiety, sleep issues, autoimmunity, joint pain, urinary symptoms…a pretty comprehensive list. But I think that take-home is that if you’re having digestive issues, accompanied by any of these symptoms, they may be greatly alleviated by getting rid of those nasty parasites.

The other tricky thing about working with parasite elimination is thatconventional medicine barely acknowledges this issue at all, and medical testing is notoriously inaccurate. So if you have a suspicion that all is not right, you’re probably correct.

Gut health, and specifically a parasite cleanse needs to be undertaken as a project, where you commit to a period of time of clean eating. This entails cutting out sugar and other refined carbohydrates, while also taking herbs and other supplements to kill off the offending creatures. My general recommendation is a commitment of a minimum of 3 months.

I love the products from a company called CellCore, for yeast & parasite cleansing, and detoxifying the system from the die-off that occurs, leading to brain-fog and bloating. They are effective, with great tolerability and few side effects.

Later on in your gut healing process, there are plenty of wonderful products for repair of the gut wall, and replenishment of healthy bacteria.  But you can start now by including fermented vegetables into your diet, on a daily basis.

These are my tips for today. I’d love to hear your stories of gut healing, parasite cleansing, or if you have a great supplement that’s helped you to heal. Also, feel free to email me back with questions.

With Love and Healing,

Carla

Favorite Remedies for GUT HEALING

Dearest Beauty;
Gut Healing has been something of a life-long project for me, having suffered from belly issues since I was very, very young.

The reason that healing your gut is SO challenging is because it’s been with you so long and therefore so entrenched, and because it requires changes that aren’t easy to make. Namely, your DIET. Your SUGAR ADDICTION. Your every day habits.

That’s why it’s not for the faint of heart, or those looking for a quick fix. It takes a great deal of commitment and determination. However, it’s worth the effort because Gut Health is truly the key to sparkling health! 

If you have bloating, constipation or loose, frequent stools, discomfort or gas on a near daily basis….you’re in need of gut healing. Here are the most important tools that I’ve learned on my way back to sparkling gut health.

THE SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET (SCD): This is the basis of the GAPS Diet, which is popular for children on the autistic spectrum. The SCD essentially takes all starch out of the diet. This may seem incredibly restrictive, but it is SO healing that it very quickly feels easy. What I’ve learned over time is that it’s possible to make any way of eating both gratifying and delicious.

CLEANSING: Parasites, yeast and other unhealthy microbes that are colonizing your gut, require cleansing from the system. A very clean diet, is of course the basis, but also specific herbs to draw out and kill off the offending critters. I love the products from a company called CellCore, for yeast & parasite cleansing, and detoxifying the system from the die-off that occurs, leading to brain-fog and bloating.

REPAIR: Of the leaky gut that contributes to systemic health issues like autoimmunity and mystery illness. Pure Aloe Gel is my new favorite product for this. The trick is to find a product that is totally pure, which is not common in the marketplace. In the past, whenever I’d try an aloe product, my gut would feel more irritated! But with the purest of products, your gut will feel soothed. I’ve been using the fresh, frozen gel from a company called Stockton.

REPLENISHMENT: Putting back the probiotics, prebiotics and all the healthy flora that your gut is now lacking. This includes high quality fermented vegetables, homemade or from organic companies (like Hawthorne Valley Farms, Real Pickles or Hosta Hill) on a daily basis, as well as supplements like RESTORE, that aids with repair and integrity of the intestinal wall.

These are my tips for today. I’d love to hear your stories of Gut Healing, or if you have a great supplement that’s helped you to heal, please let me know. Also, feel free to email me back with questions.

MY HEALING GIFT TO YOU: if you’re needing help with gut healing or any health issue that’s persisting, I’m offering a handful of complimentary HEALING INSIGHT CALLS to help you access profound healing, leading to sparkling health.
