On a personal note… 

Spring Cleanse time!
It’s time for an internal spring cleaning for me. I’m cleaning out my intestines from built up gunk – dead tissue and bacteria, old and incompletely digested food and toxins.I’m sharing my cleanse protocol here, but should you want to embark on this type of cleanse, you should check with your personal health practitioner first, as your body may need something different.

Benefits I hope to gain:

  • Feel more energized
  • Feel lighter
  • Heal areas of inflammation more quickly (particularly behind my right knee)
  • Glowing skin
  • Shinier, healthier hair
5-Day Cleanse Recipe
1 tsp Bentonite clay
1 tsp fine ground psyllium
2 oz apple juice
12 oz pure water
Put all in a 14 oz jar and shake until mixed.
Drink. Follow it with 14 oz of pure water.I’m doing this 3 times/day, making sure no food is eaten 2 hours previous or after. If food is eaten, the clay will pull the food out of the body instead of whatever else is sticking on the intestinal walls.

 

I’m taking a gentle herbal laxative during the cleanse: Intestinal Movement Formula made by HealthForce.
I’ll be making sure I have 2-3 bowel movements each day.

Ideally, I’d get 2 colonics during the cleanse time and one the following week.

During the cleanse, I will drink mostly veggie juice and eat raw veggies, which gives me lots of vitamins and minerals.

The week after the cleanse, I’ll replenish the guts with probiotics, an amino acid supplement containing all amino acids, but higher amounts of L-glutamine (great for gut repair!), maybe aloe vera juice.

I’ll let you know how it goes! You do the same if you do a cleanse. I am always looking forward to hearing other people’s results. And if you need help with it, feel free to ask me via email or phone.

Happy May to you,
Luminara


Easy Exercise That Builds Muscle

Resistance exercise increases the strength and mass of muscles, bone strength and metabolism. Additionally, scientific studies have found it can -started at any age –counteract age-related loss of muscle. Lifting weights is resistance exercise. But you don’t need to lift weights to give your muscles some resistance!Resistance can be as simple as flexing (tightening) the quadriceps, or thigh, muscle for a few seconds, then relaxing. The same can be done for abdominal muscles, arms, back, whichever muscle you want to work. Doing several repetitions (10-15) helps build the muscle.Do these on an airplane in your seat, while sitting in a work meeting (who sees you flexing your legs under the table?), while waiting in the car picking up kids, even in line at the grocery store! Please don’t do it while driving, though.
You may want to stretch after flexing all those muscles. Relax the muscle and then and move it into the opposite state. 
Have fun with it!

Daily 5-minute Energy Routine

AutismOne_Logo_Small_0AutismOne is a non-profit charity organization 501(c)(3) started by a small group of parents of children with autism.They hold to the beliefs that “autism is the result of environmental triggers. Autism is not caused by “bad” genes and the epidemic is not the result of “better” diagnosis. Children with autism suffer from gut bugs, allergies, heavy metal toxicity, mitochondrial disorders, antioxidant deficiencies, nutritional deficiencies and autoimmune diseases – all of which are treatable.”
THE KEY IS EDUCATION
The AutismOne Conference, AutismOne Radio, AutismOne Outreach and Autism in Action initiatives educate more than 100,000 families every year about prevention, recovery, safety, and change.I’ll be attending the AutismOne Conference in Chicago next week. Look for great new information and tactics for healing from autism in the coming newsletters!
