Long before a disease has progressed far enough for western medicine to diagnose it, there are signs that something is wrong. They hover in the background , affecting our quality of life and giving us the
nagging feeling that all is not right with our world. Claudia Welch

Hormones affect every tissues and organs in the body. The endocrine system is a collection of endocrine glands that produce hormones used as chemical messengers to help regulate vital processes including metabolism, growth, sleep and reproduction. To support and balance your hormone health you need proper nourishment on and off the plate.
Gut health is crucial to maintain a healthy and strong immune system and digestive system. Elimination diets are used to identify and remove inflammatory foods. A gut healing protocol, including a lymphatic cleanse are used as well to address inflammation or symptoms of an allergic reaction such as skin rashes, sinus congestion, headache, gastrointestinal distress... Juicing is a wonderful tool.
Detoxification is a vital process in order to thrive and remain healthy, the liver is the major organ for detoxifying. In order to balance our hormones we need to reduce our toxic load and support our liver. Other pathways such as the intestines, the kidneys, the skin, the lungs and the lymphatic system also need our attention. In addition cleansing the mind from mental toxicity is also part of the process.
The purpose of digestion is to get nutrients to each cell in the body for optimal functioning and then remove the waste products. Digestion and gut health must be supported through a healthy diet and lifestyle. In short, we have to feed the good bacteria and not the bad ones.
A state of no inflammation is the goal we are working toward. When you have low inflammation in your body, your immune system is at rest. It is calm, strong, responsive and ready to do its work. A clogged lymphatic system and a poor gut health limit immune functions and should be addressed.
Stress strongly impacts the body and the brain as well. Supporting your adrenals is very important to help manage stress and the physical and emotional challenges of daily life. Yoga, meditation, a plant based diet, adaptogens and aromatherapy are useful tools to reduce stress.
It is beneficial to eat organic, plant-based and avoid gluten.
Homeostatsis and cellular integrity is the foundation of health.
Loss of homeostasis and cellular integrity is the root cause of disease.
When cells are damaged by toxins, oxygen starvation, malnutrition, trauma :
cells lose potassium, cells accept sodium, cells swell with water, loss of cellular energy production -ATP
A healthy cell membrane is important for hormone receptors, neurotransmitters and all kinds of signaling ( gerson.org )
What can damage your cells?
glucose (added sugar)
excess sodium, protein and fat
free radical-generating substances : fried foods, alcohol, tobacco, pesticides, air polluants...any source of toxins

The different stages in the evolution of diseases :
When your cells are damaged, your immune system is affected in different ways and can't function optimally. It takes hard work to restore damaged cells-tissues-organs-systems, prevention is key!
The good news is ; there is a path...a way of doing things differently, available to improve one's condition ...and allow more ease and joy.
Have a look at my own personal daily routine. Love, Genevieve
The importance of a healthy digestive system :
In order for our intake to be properly digested to the end products and all waste eliminated, all toxins and poisons must be eliminated
The inability to heal is caused by : loss of mineral balances, poisoning of essential organs due to toxicity, parasites, incomplete digestion and elimination
Deficient and toxic food leads to a weak digestive system
Toxins + pathogens (bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungi) = inflammation
Chronic inflammation leads to disease
To keep yourself more balanced and healthy :
exercise on a daily basis, yoga is wonderful
meditate each morning
organize your time and your environment
drink enough purified water
eat a whole food plant-based diet
do what you love!
socialize with the right people for you
& get enough restorative sleep
