Water for Life

You and Water

Water - your health depends on it. Getting the right water in the right amount with enough safe salt creates optimal health.

Your body is electromagnetic. What do you need to conduct the messages from one neuron to the next? You need salt and water. That is what your body is , 75% water. In fact, your brain is 85% water. So think about this for a moment - your brain takes up about 1/50 of the whole mass of your body. And yet it uses 1/5 of the water you take in.  

Now what does that tell you about water and mental functioning? Have you noticed how many people, surprisingly some of them are only in their twenties, joke about their senior moments, or their brain fog, or what they forget? 

Chances are it is dehydration. Most people are short about two quarts of water. Most people think about drinking when they are thirsty. By the time you are thirsty, you may already be dangerously dehydrated.  

Now how is a message going to be passed accurately from cell to cell if the water is not there, and if the salt is not in the water? Think about that one for a moment. It cannot happen. 
Your body needs water. How much water? It needs sufficient water it can assimilate and use. Your body requires water equal to half your body weight - in fluid ounces not pounds. So a person who weighs 100 pounds needs 100/2=50 ounces of water daily - spread over the course of the day. If you drink either alcohol or caffeine you need to add an additional 2 glasses of water to counter the dehydrating affects of each. 

If you have the right kind of water, at the right pH with the right amount of oxygen, you do yourself a big favor in prevention because you are less likely to get sick, get hurt, or develop emotional conditions as easily or as seriously as you will if you fail to consume enough water and salt. 

You need salt your body uses with harm. Himalayan pink salt is optimal. Avoid sea salt as its high plastic content is unsafe

You can dramatically improve many aspects of your health simply by changing your water-consumption habits.

Air and Water Filters: Why You NEED Them

Air and water filters can make the difference between health and discomforts and diseases when you buy those that actually work to clean your environment.

If you think you save money by not using either filter you are fooling yourself and hurting those who depend on you to protect them

When you choose not to invest in your well being  the alternative system may come at an unfathomable price.

What You Eat Impacts Everything in Your Life

What you eat  and what you eat eats, and how you eat it dictates your mental and physical well being. A healthy microbiome makes a happy life.

Looking at the meats in the title photo?

Surprisingly, beef liver is one of the healthiest most nutritious foods you can eat. At just 2 ounces daily I get more vitamin C and omega 3s than in any plant sources. 

A carnivore diet is not all about muscle meat. I eat lots of liver, kidney and heart - in very tasty forms. I also tried pancreas and spleen but, lets just say I will stick with the previous selection and get the last two from pasture-raised desiccated organ tablets.

I enjoy duck, quail, bison/buffalo, venison, elk, chicken, peacock - and though I ventured into kangaroo and alligator I found both less than luscious. I make everything myself from scratch so an invitation to my kitchen table becomes quite an adventure.

Weird, huh? I recall the day my brother was terribly upset when I served kidney bean lasagna. Oh dear how that diet screwed up my hormones!

Since going full out on the carnivore diet, as explained in this book, my heart stopped all the nearly constant arrhythmia that followed nerve damage 9 years ago with brain surgery. Life had gotten so limited because I could not count on being able to breathe and function well with unexpected frequent episodes. 

I found that predicament especially upsetting because I did not feel safe being alone with my grandchildren. I went through some very challenging moments.

My doctor, not knowing how to help me heal from the debilitating state detailed here, told me to eat a carnivore diet. He explained that the body does not need fruits or vegetables - and I discovered that truth rather quickly when I went from what Dr. Paul Saladino terms the Carnivorish Diet, to an actual Carnivore Diet. 

Think what I just said is heresy?

That diet is the G.A.P.S., essentially, that was developed years ago (I highlighted it in  a 2014 book on mental health - that I have not yet published) as it has been used to reverse autism and many functional medicine and holistic docs today recommend it to reverse autoimmune conditions - a painful condition I saw in my own health - something that started when that brain tumor started growing.

I cannot recommend educating yourself highly enough on the program which is a lifestyle - I rarely get hungry. I used to have to get up in the middle of the night and eat when my brain used glucose/carbs for fuel and now it uses fat so hunger rarely happens and I sleep better!

Oh yeah, you won't the hangries because you do not need to refuel every 1 1/2-2 hours because your blood sugar level drops and your brain gets fuzzy.

Duh - the brain is 70% cholesterol. Of course it prefers fat for fuel - but not just any fat. There is a huge difference between animal fat and oils from seeds and plants. The research abounds!

Read Dr. Stephen Gundry's Plant Paradox and Longevity Paradox to understand why plants do NOT furnish nutrition your body uses and in fact does the opposite. 

Plants do not want to be eaten and their defenses lead to hormone disruption and all kinds of failure to assimilate and use nutrition from plants.When I stopped eating grains years ago I noticed I felt better. BUT I was eating more leafy greens in a week than most people eat in a year. And that habit seems to have caused the nearly non-stop heart arrhythmias.

Oh yes, this is a biggy you want to know...

How many people do you know who had knee or hip replacements because arthritis ate up their cartilage? Note that is a fairly recent phenomena - since the wheat grown today has 7x as many chromosomes as the ancient variety and, guess what - and this is documented -  destroys cartilage.

Pretty good reason to stop eating gluten - at the very least.

I cannot tell you that eating this way will resolve your heart arrhythmias. It works for me and I am ever so grateful to the doctor who told me to stop the Carnivorish diet (animal products and vegetable and fruits and nuts and oils) and go 100% carnivore.

I eat a HUGE variety of animals and organs which surprises me. I used to be vegetarian and lost my health and almost lost my life all while gaining LOTS of weight  during my fifteen years as a vegetarian. On the other hand - I (and my family) never got sick even when half the school was out with the flu none of us ever suffered any illness. We did eat organic all those years. And I have always cooked everything from scratch - well almost everything. We did eat out too.

I get my pasture-raised animal products here.  I also am graced with a farm 15 minutes down the road where they raise peacocks, emu, elk, bison/buffalo, elk, venison and poultry. So you know, the farmers who raise those animals create a negative impact on green house gases and use less soil than growing plants - which is wiping out rain forests.

Get the facts and stop swallowing the propaganda on nutrition. Just take a look at society and realize the US ranks at the BOTTOM, according to WHO, on health among developed countries. Avoid following the research sponsored by the companies (through devious deceptive means covering up their participation )making the products and "advice" never based in evidence. Learn how to distinguish the honest research from the cherry-picked half-truths (or worse).

Educate yourself. Personally I own both the printed and audiobooks so it's easy to learn and then to take written notes I easily reference. I do not recommend anything I do not personally use.

So You Never Suffer

Suffering is optional when you live with awareness and listen to your body, mind, and spirit. Your inner wisdom CAN keep you healthy.

You see, bad things happen in everyone's life.The thing is you get to choose how to feel about any event. After the brain surgery left me having to work hard to appear normal I made the choice to accept life in my altered mind-body and move forward from there.

Easy? Heck no! AND it works. Confused? Simple explanation here.

But what happens when you cannot get the help you know you need to make the leap - or even the baby steps - forward??

I made this video to expand your awareness of what may be going on in your body without your knowing. Aging is not a time of decline UNLESS you spent decades unaware of what your body is telling you. Hey - it is easy to do if no one tells you this stuff.

I made this video, highlighting many critical details you likely do not know about how your body works or may be working in unhealthy ways right now.

Suffering is optional with knowledge and action. Please watch the entire video and do click the links for further in depth info that very well may prevent or end suffering you thought was just aging.

Know that your body needs CBD to maintain homeostasis. All kinds of functions (think hormonal balance and natural effortless weight loss) improve once you meet that natural need.

Healing – Your Body-Mind Spirit Does It Naturally

Join me and go beyond
(just) symptom control!

For more than two decades I have sought help to heal from two brain injuries. Neither mainstream nor functional medicine practitioners could assist me beyond a point that still prevents me from full-out enjoying life.

Because of the work I do (but am not able to do it on myself) I have long been aware of the healing modalities so popular in Europe and other countries - which some of my mentors used to help me in the early years. Unfortunately neither of them is available to me now.

So I knew what an extraordinary gift I was blessed with when this series came across my desk.

Happily, the people now assisting my healing in ways no one in the U.S. said was even possible before, practice this style of wellness. Indeed, one of them, Kelly Kennedy, is one of the powerful presenters in this eye-opening series of what has been working for decades - just not in the United States - where 95% of all prescription drugs are used. 

Despite billions of prescriptions written each year, patients navigating chronic conditions can spend years (and tens of thousands of dollars!) seeking answers and treatment — often getting sicker, addicted and exhausted…

What if there were a different way of looking at health in a sea of modern-day symptom control?

Bioregulatory medicine (aka European biological medicine) is a customized, patient-centered model that has been utilized extensively in Europe for decades…

…combining the wisdom of ancient, traditional practices with the newest tech innovations and powerful insights from practitioners and doctors…

…who, throughout time, have found that by removing toxicity and blocks to healing, the body can successfully regulate and self-heal — even with the most complex conditions.

Which is exactly how I work so I KNOW this works in every situation - be the issue physical, emotional, or spiritual.

—>>Click to Discover how bioregulatory medicine can help you heal when you attend this complimentary, online event!


Your host, Dr. Christine Schaffner, helps patients who have seen, on average, 25 doctors (and as many as 50+!) before they arrive at her office.

Often, they have spent tens of thousands of dollars on specialists and ineffective pharmacological solutions that many times have created further side effects and symptoms.

In the face of modern medicine’s inability to help these patients, she has found that mysterious chronic diseases can be successfully treated through a combination of bioregulatory medicine and modern technology geared toward each patient’s individual needs. Every day she sees breakthroughs and lives changed!

She’s here to help you by sharing her wisdom.

You’re not alone. There are answers. We can heal together.

Serious Sleep

Serious sleep. What does that mean?

Seriously, many people boast about getting only  four hours of sleep. Those are the people who fail to witness their deteriorating health, attributing lower energy, lower immunity, and increased injuries to getting old.

Hogwash. Age has nothing to do with deterioration - well, unless you believe it does then surely you decline in each moment! That belief is your choice.

You can make a different choice.

In today's world people run themselves ragged. Constant exposure to digital toxins block deep restorative sleep - think wi-fi, cellphones, computers and tablets. Think energy-saving lighting that turns off  melatonin production making it so hard to fall asleep and stay asleep because one's circadian rhythm is out of whack!

And that is just the obvious stuff. Stuff - that is technical term.

Seriously, there is no place on the planet - not even atop the highest mountains, where clean air exists. Even national parks are polluted with wifi and cell towers.

How are you going to give your brain a chance to detox each night? It only happens during sleep.

Joiya makes the purest products with wellness habits incorporated that allow you to get your sleep habit under control. Declaring this month as Sleeptember they introduced a Snooze Set that does it all - CBN and CBD.

Our formulations are built to work synergisticaly, supporting one another for optimal benefit to you. While each may impact your sleep  on its own, the combination offers a solid frontline tactic to get you to sleep faster and keep you asleep longer.

Science shows that soaking in a warm bath one hour before bedtime relaxes the body inducing sleep. Of course turning off ALL blue light devices (that includes your TV and cellphones) two hours before bedtime and replacing blue lights with soft red, or at least incandescent, bulbs signals your body it is time to wind down.

I take my Joiya  Soft Gels then get into bed.

Oh yes, those soft gels allowed me to start sleeping well within two weeks once I started taking them. Interestingly, I had no expectations of any kind. I was using the CDB because our bodies make it and use it.It is a supplement like taking vitamin C.  In fact, many cannabinoid receptors are right below the skin which explains why top quality CDB topical products work upon contact.

Personally, I write in two journals once I get into bed. In one I list one thing I LOVE about being me. I number it each day and go back and read my entire journal - when I am awake enough to get through. I have been doing this for over 400 days so it takes me a chunk of time to read my entire journal. When I feel too tired I read one or two items on each page.

My other journal is my "I feel happy and grateful" record where I list ten things for which I truly feel happy and grateful that day.

Both habits set my mind in a place for pleasing dreams, rest, and peace.

Joiya  supports you by assisting you in getting your serious sleep.

To that end they created three products and, in this month of Sleeptember, are giving away the spray when you buy the other two as shown below.

Your Mouth – Your Life

Up to 80% of disease symptoms are triggered by problems in the mouth?

Many health problems like heart disease, dementia, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer, have their roots in poor oral health. For example, science clearly reveals that gum disease can raise your risk of hypertension and a fatal heart attack or stroke.

Now, you may be thinking, I'm fine: I brush and floss every day and I go to the dentist on a regular basis! But you could still have chronic infections or toxicity in the mouth, poisoning the rest of your body.

The truth is that conventional dental procedures can leave your mouth vulnerable to infections. And the materials used by conventional dentistry are extremely toxic.

--->>Join me to learn more at the Holistic Oral Health Summit!

Raising my kids in the Washington, D.C. area led me to the dentist at the forefront to outlaw amalgam fillings. He repeatedly testified before Congress as did the scientist warning about the dangers of the powerful poison, fluoride.

That was forty years ago! 

This summit may make the critical difference for you or someone you love!

  • Your host, Jonathan Landsman, and his wife have spent a small fortune reversing the physical and emotional damage done to them by conventional dentistry. With nearly 35 years of experience in the health and fitness industry, their hope is to share the wisdom they’ve discovered so you can experience incredible health breakthroughs in your life, just like they have.

    After listening to this event, you will never have to be harmed by conventional dentistry again!

    During this life-saving online event, you'll discover:
        •    Whether you should pull a wisdom tooth or not (the answer may surprise you!)
        •    Link between dental infections and your cancer risk
        •    Best way to correct autoimmune disorders by fixing problems in the mouth
        •    Natural ways to reverse gum disease and avoid losing your teeth
        •    How to safely flush out toxic heavy metals
        •    8 step at-home program for healthy teeth and gums
        •    And so much more!

    Remember, just one uneducated visit to your dentist can have devastating health consequences. If you’re looking to prevent (or reverse!) disease, this event could give you the answers you’ve been looking for.


    P.S. When you register for The Holistic Oral Health Summit, you’ll also unlock early-access interviews, complimentary guides and helpful eBooks about living your most resilient life! All gifts you don't want to miss.
    P.P.S. Remember the summit is FREE to attend.

Happy Mouth – Happy Life

A happy mouth reflects a healthy happy life. Your teeth and gums  don't just chew food.

They  impact your body, mind, and spiritual well being.

Does your dentist consider how your oral health affects your whole body… and vice versa? Does your dentist even have a clue?

One uneducated visit to your dentist can have devastating health consequences — common dental procedures can trigger autoimmune disorders, cancer, heart disease and dementia! 

And not only that, 80% of disease symptoms are caused by problems in the mouth.

Oral health is one of the most overlooked health issues in conventional medicine. Properly (and naturally maintained) it can reduce your disease risks! In fact, it’s possible to avoid years of physical pain and disease (and save money!) by learning the truth about conventional dentistry — BEFORE health problems arise. 

 This video separates you from the  uneducated moving you to a happier healthier life.

CBD is Wellness By Nature

CBD is the ONLY supplement that has an entire body system named after it.

Scientists say this mechanism dates back 600 million years! All mammals have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), as shown below. Check out all the receptor cells in the brain, nervous system and throughout the entire body.. 

CBD receptor sites

This particular cannabindial creates homeostasis to restore and improve total wellness as well as remedy physical and emotional challenges throughout the body and mind. In fact, 100 peer-reviewed studies show that CBD is neuroprotective. Yes, it supports brain health too!

Nature provides what we need to create health! Just like the energy I use in my healthcare practice, CBD knows where to go and what to do to create healing.

Some people do not make as much CBD as others. And, for many, that amount decreases as years pass - necessitating the need for supplements. Hey, you take vitamins, yes? CBD is also a supplement - NOT medicine.

Hemp is no ordinary substance.

This remarkable plant is used, as you know, to make rope. Did you know it is also used to make clothing, to build houses, and even to make super strong car bodies? Makes sense that it makes strong human bodies, doesn't it?

Taking CBD as a supplement makes the difference between ho hum settling for your life and "WOW! I feel good."

No, not good as in high. CBD is NOT marijuana. CBD is not psychoactive.

This video explains the basic misconceptions I know I had before getting educated  which is why I made it and share it with you now.
