Detox Your Scalp for Radiant Hair

Many of us have caught on that the foods we consume produce a certain result in our bodies. For example eating healthy fats like in avocados or fresh coconut produce lustrous hair, wrinkle free skin and a happy body. Where as eating rancid or highly heated fats and oils creates the exact opposite.

Just as we detox our liver, kidneys and colon to function at our best our skin and scalp also require this kind of cleansing. Our skin being the largest organ gives us an opportunity to release toxins through our pores. We can do this with saunas, physical movement and sweat lodges to name a few. This also provides a radiance to the skin and body over a lifetime.

How do we specifically target the scalp for a radiant head of hair?
In order to deeply purify our scalps and create radiantly healthy and full heads of hair we must first bring our awareness to the scalp. Past use of shampoos and conditioners with chemicals, coloring agents, alcohols and preservatives create blockages in our scalps. So the first step is to let go of these crutches. They create instant gratification but over time cause a detriment to our health. If we are creating negative self talk about the condition of our hair this will also cause a negative reaction in our bodies. As we speak kindly to ourselves and create a positive self image we change the health of the scalp. This is foundational and the most important piece of the equation.

Next we want to detox our scalp which pulls out the impurities. We do this like the ancients have done and thankfully Hair Shaman Anthony Morrocco has taken it upon himself to create from the Earth a detoxification clay made from potent proteins, minerals and clays. When applied to the scalp with spring or purified water this naturally cleans and pulls out the toxins. When we clean and clear the area we make way for a healthy, mineral rich and PH balanced environment. Zen Detox is a mild yet effective all natural way to cleanse the scalp. If you are experiencing the following its time for a detox!

  • a dry scalp
  • excessive oily scalp
  • itchiness, dandruff
  • sore scalp
  • brain fog
  • hair loss

From the first use you will notice a lightness of the scalp. If you are suffering from heavy metal challenges you may feel a clarity in the mind or even the feeling of Zen!

This is the Zen Detox working its magic on your crown of glory. Next we want to nourish the scalp with the healthiest most pure shampoo and conditioners to strengthen, rejuvenate and feed the follicles, hair strands and glands in the scalp!

The more nourishment we give our scalp in the form of loving thoughts, plant based shampoos and conditioners and plenty of healthy blood flow through scalp massaging, yoga (inversions) and movement we create our radiant healthy scalp and hair.

Living on Life Food

A few weeks ago I embarked on my Spring  Liver Gallbladder Flush and this time I utilized the work of genius Dr. David Jubb to faciliate a deeper flush.  He was the one of the many pioneers that coined the words “Life Food”.   I am so inspired to share the work of Dr. David Jubb here because he has been an inspiration to so many people along the health path.    If you are inspired to learn from the master himself please do. A Shaman, top Natural Lifestyler,  neurobehavioral physiologist, microspocist, a blood formation specialist and an expert in nutrition  Dr. Jubb has a deep innerstanding of the human life form. Some of his teachings are pretty deep in Science if you like that kinda thing, if not you can still get A LOT from his concepts and the Life Food Recipe Book.  Otherwise check out plenty of his talks on line.

IMG_8657

Blending my Life Soup.

He recommends eating only foods that would grow in the wild and to stay away from hybrid starchy foods that are only grown for mass production. These would include things like carrots, dates & bananas which cause run away sugars in the system and ultimately cause challenges in the liver.  He recommends doing a 2 week Life Food fast which consists of blended foods and a series of liver gallbladder flushes during the 2 week phase. You can find his work online and purchase any of his books to assist you with the cleanse. The Life Food Recipe Book was of great assistance to me. You can also contact me for guidance with the program.  I love liquid nutrition so it was a joy for me to create recipes from his life food book and then begin to create my own blended liquid light after I got the hang of his concepts.  The blended foods he suggest are very sustaining due to most of them being blended as whole foods so the fiber is intact. I was always quite full after a small bowl of Life Soup.  I thoroughly enjoyed creating these soups daily along with Sprouted nut mylks, electrolyte lemonade w/ superfoods added, green vegetable juices and fermented beverages.

So what are the benefits of Life Food?

1. For one it is great for anyone with digestive issues as the food is blended giving the digestive tract a much needed break.

2. It wakes up dormant DNA

3. Improves cellular function and rejuvenates the cell structure.

4. Gives the body nourishment on the cellular level. Great for those with nutrient deficiencies.

5. Enzyme rich foods full of life power create an enzyme reserve in the body so the pancreas has a loaded bank account! Enzymes equal light and light equals a more radiant you!

6. Improves Liver Function

These are just a few of the benefits, try it for yourself and write me with your experience. Some have better bowel movements, increased energy and an over all sense of well being.

Here is a suggestion below for an incredible Life Food Soup:

Step 1:  Juice Celery, Lemon, Cucumber  (about 3/4-1 pint)

Step 2: Fill the blender with the juice and then add in seasonal greens like cilantro, wild dandelion greens, wild grass (its growing everywhere around you) red bell pepper, miso paste, turmeric, pink salt, habanero pepper, avocado, sea veggies, nutritional yeast and a handful of soaked sprouted pumpkin seeds..for the zinc!.

Step 3: Blend and serve. Top with slices of sun-dried tomato, avocado or spirulina powder. I also love to add a superfood powder that Dr. Marshall makes called Premier Tomato Concentrate.  It is mineral rich and great to add to foods if you are not foraging wild foods daily. Wild foods give us more independence, more love and more truth inside ourselves! Eat more of those and Eat Less dense foods to feel & look your best.

Life Food

Life Food

You can do so many variations and it is so fun creating different colors and flavors with these life giving soups.

The liver and gallbladder flushing is something you can incorporate inside the 2 week blended food lifestyle. I enjoyed doing both a liver and gallbladder flush (the difference being how much oil you consume for each).

Spring has sprung and most of us have had the gut feeling to cleanse our mind, bodies and spirits in some fashion. It is also the full moon which can empower us more to give us strength to move forward with these decisions. Stand out in the full moon tonight and get super charged by that full moon.  Your battery will be on power mode!  Spring is truly the beginning of the New Year…as is shared within the Zodiac. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac so as we re-birth at this time and especially this week we die to our ego now and come back a new being we can feel our life power more profoundly.

Sage the Great Healer.

I wanted to connect with you today about the incredible power of Sage. This herb is an incredible purifier and I recommend several different uses for it. If you have potent ways to utilize this medicine please do share in the comments below.

Sage

Lately I have been listening to the call of this miraculous herb. It has found its way into our home in several facets. For one I named our house after it.  It is a beautiful reminder that this home is one of pure intentions and vibrations.  It is a sacred home to create from. What is the name of your home? What could you name your home so that every time you spoke it, it inspired you in some way?

So, a few months back I was up in Ojai, CA with some friends whom had harvested a bunch of local Sage.  We ended up making sage sticks out of it on our trip to Santa Cruz.  This Sage is a wonderful home & spirit purifier. I utilize these sage sticks to cleanse the entrances of the home, the rooms, doorways and any one inside the home.  I feel the healing effects and as I walk the parameters of the house I enjoy saying a prayer that all good spirits abide here and only those of the MOST HIGH dwell here.

Other Medicinal Uses of Sage,
The Great Healer

Next I like to create a steamed decoction of dried sage or you can use essential oil of Sage for this. Simply put 3 drops of HI-FI Sage Oil in a glass pot and then pour some boiling spring water over the oil. Put a large towel over your head and inhale the vapors.  This will clean out the lungs and the folds of the lungs. One of the most potent medicines for the lungs.  We breathe in many bacterias and viruses and Sage is one of the most potent ways to clear mucus and other impurities.  This method also gives you a Sage Facial.  You can also let the Sage simmer so that the home is filled with its healing essence.

Salt Inhaler

Salt Inhaler

Next, enjoy Sage in your Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler to continue to purify the lungs. You can purchase a salt inhaler on line or at your health food store. Add a couple drops of Sage Essential Oil to the crystals and enjoy clean air on a plane, in the car or even just have it around the house. I like to keep it out and utilize it during breath work.

I also grow Sage, well I guess it wouldn’t quite be “The Sage House” without growing it here right?  I enjoy taking some of the fresh herb and mincing it into salads and making hot tea with it. It’s truly potent and yummy!  You can even create a cultured seed or nut cheese and infuse the mixture with sage.  It makes for a quite decadent and sophisticated cheese plate! Serve along side a glass of Coconut water Kefir Champagne or Jun!

Sage is a remedy for colds, fevers and respiratory infections. It is quite powerful for the treatment of nervous system challenges and digestive issues too. It has been uses for excessive uterine bleeding and for the reversing of gray hairs. In fact the list of remedies go on and on for this herb.

Sage Essential oil is enjoyable to wear as a natural perfume. I have found it to be similar to vetiver in its grounding qualities. You can find both of these essential oils here: Living Libations

Thanks for stopping by the Sacred Backyard and the Sage House.  I love YOU!

The Benefits of the 24 Hour Water Fast

Today we are going to speak about the benefit of the 24 hour  weekly  water fast. water-fasting-fountain-of-youthThe most recognized figure whom lived by this principle was Paul C. Bragg,  of the “Bragg’s Healthy lifestyle”.  His energy, strength, vitality and youthfulness give us clue’s that this is in fact a powerful way to optimize the function of the body. He left his physical body during an accident in his 90’s while surfing.

Although at first it can be a bit challenging as you create this as a weekly practice it becomes a joyous experience allowing you to fully rest and rejuvenate. We are giving our digestive system a break which is one of the best things we can do to improve the overall function of our digestive system and organ system.

When the body is given the time to heal it will do so. Digesting food takes so much life force so in order to allow the body to clean house it requires a break.  Often the belief is to take this product or food to heal the body, however I believe it is what we let go of that heals the body and what we cleanse out of our system that gives us back our radiance.  Expensive supplements can be beneficial however clean the body out first and then see how its vital life force returns without fail. I present you with the miracle of water fasting.

If we want better bowel movements it’s a great idea to water fast.  Each meal we take in should yield a bowel movement shortly there after.   If this is not happening you can be sure food is fermenting, putrifying and going rancid attracting, parasites, yeast, mold and fungus.  Cleaning out the bowels via water fasting will take care of this, simultaneously clearing the mind.

If we want our hormones to be working in harmony with us a water fast also helps to balance these out. If we are bombarded with toxins that mimic hormones we must flush them out. Giving the liver and other organs the opportunity to “catch up” in a sense and expel these toxins will reset the hormones.  A liver flush is also a wonderful adjunct to clearing toxins.

If we want great skin and clear eyes water fasting will give us this. At first there might be blemishes as the accumulated waste begins to flush out of the body but in time the blood and fluids in the body will become cleaner and the organs will function better.  In turn the waste will exit the kidney and bowel not the skin.

26050_382199959905_3381717_nAfter a few weeks of the 24 hour water fast then you can go into a 3 day water fast. The 3 day water fast is an incredible reset of the system. After this you can talk to your health practitioner about longer water fasts.  These will often reverse conditions in the body giving you a new lease on life. We are bombarded on a daily basis with toxins in our environment so keeping up thru a detoxification regime will give us a the purity to live our full potential this lifetime.

These longer fasts assist us to release unnecessary weight. When we water fast we are losing fat but also all the chemicals and toxins that were stored in the fat. The reason why so many people can not lose weight effectively is because of the toxins stored in the fat cells. The body is utilizing the fat as a protective measure to store these toxins. It isn’t until we release the toxins through a tool like water fasting that we can fully let go of the unwanted weight.  First and foremost there must be an internal shift in our mind’s eye or a healing that takes place that we no longer feel the need to protect ourselves with extra fat.  Once we adopt a healthy lifestyle of fresh pressed vegetable juices, and a whole food approach we can keep that weight off. Moving the body, communicating with love and forgiveness and keeping up a cleansing regime must be apart of this lifestyle to keep your weight at its natural state. A holistic approach is the way of the Natural Lifestyle Enthusiast!

What if someone is intending to gain weight? Water fasting also resets the system for those that are too thin. When the body is too thin it is also in an unbalanced state of dis-ease so fasting will assist to clear the toxins. Enzyme therapy coupled with water fasting can be a powerful approach here.  The enzymes work to go after any viruses or bacteria that might be hindering the immune system from working properly.

So, the 24 hour water fast also gives us more energy, vitality, youthfulness,  emotional balance, and the ability to see things from an optimistic point of view. We are more quick to forgive, more aware of ourselves and are able to respond to life instead of re-act.

Some tips for implementing your 24 hour water fast:

  • Choose a day that you can rest as you desire.
  • Utilize Spring Water for the fast.
  • Sunbathe in early sunlight or late day sunlight for powerful nutrition via the sun.
  • Fill your time with positive affirmations, vision board creations or art that you enjoy on this day.
  • Get on the earth to receive valuable earth frequencies for hormonal balance and regeneration.
  • Adopt a healthy whole food organic lifestyle prior to the fast so you have fewer detox symptoms.
  • Consider doing a castor oil pack on the large intestine or the liver for 1 hour with infrared heat to assist toxin removal.
  • Prepare & perform a coffee enema if you get a headache. This will assist the liver to flush out these toxins.
  • Take a quality colon cleanser the night of your 24 hour fast. Oxy Powder by Dr. Edward Group is recommended.
  • Start your fast after breakfast and go until breakfast the next day. (BREAK the FAST…hence the word breakfast:))
  • Have a power packed superfood smoothie for breakfast and the next morning after 24 hours have a green vegetable juice to start the day!
  • Enjoy the emotional clearing, clearing of stagnant waste and the reset you gain from this bringing about a more ageless, loving and purified you!

How to Do a Heavy Metal Detox

This heavy metal protocol is one that I have implemented into my own health strategy.  Always consulting with your own Health Practitioner is best.  This protocol would best be for someone that is generally healthy, has had all amalgam fillings removed properly and is not experiencing extreme heavy metal toxicity. Otherwise, you would want to go slower and more gentle because the body can only take a certain amount of stress from the detox. On that same note getting your heavy metal levels checked would be your first step to gathering the valuable information required to see where you are at. Ways to do this would be through Hair, Blood and Urine Analysis. There are some cutting edge tools being shared through out the alternative medical field on alternative ways to check the body for accurate heavy metal load. As these develop we will share them here at the Sacred Backyard.

One foundational piece of information is to  make sure your Urine PH is b/t 6.4-7.0 while doing a heavy metal detox. This ensures the metals are being released and excreted properly. Otherwise if the body is in an acid state it can cause more issues and actually drive the metals further into the fatty tissues. The metals hold on tight, the body has intelligence and when it is properly supported with nutrition it will release the metals in a graceful flow.

For now let’s start with the first detoxification pathway which is the skin. Being our largest organ we have to eliminate toxins we can utilize this to our advantage in a heavy metal detox protocol. Here are some great ways to do this:

Far Infrared Sauna

Far Infrared Sauna

  • Far Infrared Sauna – very important done at least twice a week for about 50 minutes each session.
  • Rebounding (until the point of exerting a sweat. usually over 30 minute session)
  • Hot/Cold Showers with skin brush stimulation
  • Activities where we perspire like yoga, tai chi etc.

Next we want to ingest plant materials that help the body get rid of metals. Which plant substances are most beneficial here?

  • Broken Cell Wall Chlorella (from a clean reputable source) – One of your best allies in detoxing metals. The nutrition profile of chlorella is off the charts with bio-available proteins, beta-carotene and nucleic acids. Do some research to learn more.images
  • A Quality Greens mix with Grasses in it like Barley and Wheat Grasses
  • Noni Fruit Powder
  • Green Tea extracts (preferably one with the least fluoride contamination)

Next we want to introduce chelating agents to the body to gently and effectively mobilize the metals from the tissues and pull it out through the bowels.  Here we can use:

  • EDTA suppositories such as Medicardium
  • Cilantro juiced or blended in a shake
  • High quality clay like Bentonite or Zeolite
  • Supplements with FOS and other green powder supplements specific for heavy metal chelating to pull metals out safely

Before, During and After a Heavy Metal Cleanse we can supplement and support the body with nourishing  nutrition/tools such as:

  • B Vitamins in a bioavailable format
  • Minerals like Quinton, Phour Salts and other Greens mixtures
  • Coffee enemas with two days b/t each to flush out the metals and move any stagnant bile. Two days b/t for electrolyte homeostasis
  • Vitamin C
  • Castor oil packing areas that feel weak during this cleanse is a great idea. For example if the kidneys require support or perhaps the liver. Sometimes the large intestine can be targeted and you would keep the pack in place for a solid 60 minutes with a heating pad.
  • Mudpacking the dowload areas and the major key organs is essential. Best to do this over a weeks span or longer. Each day a mudpack is done a mineral foot bath is important for getting rid of released toxins.

images-2Making sure the bowels are moving and clear is very important. A great way to ensure this is with colonics or a colon cleanse prior to the heavy metal detox.

A gradual pace over several years is the best way to alleviate the body of heavy metal exposure. It takes time for the body to release these without causing stress on the system.  Other ways to protect ourselves from radiation and daily metal exposure is to:

  1. Wear some type of pendant that protects you from harmful emf’s.
  2. Green Tea ND ( a formulation by Dr. Marshall) This taken in water each day especially before flying will protect the cells from radiation.
  3. Supplement with high quality sea weeds daily to protect the thyroid.
  4. Consume your Green Drink Daily
  5. Ingest high quality clays daily
  6. Supplement with glutathione

As far as nutrition goes it is important to not fast during a heavy metal cleanse but rather get bio-available protein into the system. The body requires protein at this time to repair and support the body processes. Good quality fats from DHA is a great adjunct as well as cultured vegetables to keep the immune system strong and well.

**By clearing heavy metals from the body you will be getting to the root of certain issues. Things like circulation, inflammation, candida can all be heavy influenced by a burden of too many metals in the body.  Mercury is one of the most dangerous metals and their is an abundance of information on the internet about mercury poisoning. Getting rid of your amalgam fillings if you have ever had them is foundational before clearing metals. It must be done using a certain protocol such as The Huggins Protocol so that your body is not exposed further to mercury.

How to Do a Safe & Effective Liver Gallbladder Flush.

Yes, we are back to the subject of our beloved Liver’s and Gallbladders. Yes it is that time of year again for me and maybe for you too.

I have experimented with different liver flushes and I can say that this past one was one of the smoothest ever. Here are the reasons:

1. I prepared with a couple months of Gold Coin Grass Herb Tincture.images

2. I did my castor oil packs on the kidneys, liver and then repeated over the kidneys after the flush.

3. I made sure I was well hydrated and I had plenty of minerals and transdermal magnesium throughout the process.

4. I performed several coffee enemas leading up to the flush and after the oil. I will explain this key part in just a bit! This did a world of good for making sure I did not feel sick later in the night.

5. I made sure the bile ducts of the gallbladder were open by taking Billiven so that the stones could pass thru with ease.

6. I made sure to eat a clean simple diet with out fat the day before and day of with only peeled organic apples on the flush day. Blended room temperature foods are a great idea at least 1 week prior to flushing. Ex: Raw/Organic Green Superfood Smoothies and Blended Nutrient Rich Soups at room temp keep the liver warm.

Okay, so let’s go thru each of these steps. First things first when you prepare adequately for the flush you can be sure to receive the most bang for your flush.  I recommend Gallbladder ND which you can order from me if you’d like.   This can be taking for 4-6 weeks prior to your flush. I actually did 2 tsps for 3 months and wow I feel it was a huge help. This has the potent Gold Coin Grass Herb in it. This does alot to soften up the stones.

Castor Oil Plant

Next we want to get some high quality castor oil that is from a clean source.  You will utilize the organic flannel and saturate the flannel with the oil. Then you will put this over the kidneys for 1 hour. Wrap with an old towel and heating pad.  Keeping the kidneys happy and healthy before during and after the flush is a must.  I also recommend cleaning the kidneys out with something like RenaVen. Renaven will take care of parasites, heavy metals and other unwanted toxins that may be stuck in the kidney. We want these valuable organs to be functioning properly before the flush.

We also want to castor oil pack the liver a couple times before the flush. I especially like to do this the day before the actual flush.  Leave it on for an hour as well with the heating pad.  Skip a day in between each organ when doing castor oil packs. It is a highly effective procedure although it seems simple and like much is not happening. It can be very detoxifying. Be sure to throw out the used flannel after each use.

Next we want to be doing our coffee enemas with high integrity coffee and some bile opening herbs. We can open a few caps of billiven into the enema. Do a couple enemas leading up to the days of the flush. Make sure your electrolyte balance is in check with fresh coconut water kefir, bio availiable minerals and mineral rich juices. This will make things much easier as you go thru the flush. I also recommend getting a bottle of transdermal magnesium and spray on through out the flushing experience to keep magnesium levels up.

Before the oil we want to take in some epsom salts to clear the GI tract. Some say this is important others say it is a burden on the kidneys. I do 1 tbs. an hour before the flush starts in 1/2 cup warm water. I also take a high water enema to make sure all is clear for the stones.

Coffee for Enema

Coffee for Enema

Next I like to follow the protocol that Dr. Marshall suggest of 4 spaced doses of oil at 15 minute increments(3-4tbs depending on your body size). This will allow for more stones to exit stage left:)  Or at least that is the idea.  You will add herbs, first two doses get something called hyssop and the last two doses get hyssop with parastat. The first to oil sessions have probably started to get some parasites out of hiding and then we come in with parastat on the next two oil doses. You will use lemon or grapefruit to take with each oil dose. I took two enzymes with the last oil dose to ensure the fat was digested. That is a lot of oil for one person.

I like to do the oil flush in the middle of the day around 2pm.  Then 30 minutes after your last dose of oil have a coffee enema already prepared in the bathroom awaiting your arrival. This is so key to maximize the flush benefits. I used to wait till the day after to do this step but wow does this assist the whole process to go much more smooth. After this I get a hot bath going with Medi body Bath or whatever mineral rich salt soak you have available. This will replenish minerals lost during the coffee enema. Once you get out of the bath apply more magnesium oil to the body and whatever essential oil most suits you. This time it was blue chamomile for me.  Next get back into bed and continue to rest.  Apply a castor oil pack to the liver if you wish.

If you feel okay to start drinking fluids after several hours go for it. If not remain resting. The next day you can do more epsom salts if you feel you require it. I always like to do a coffee enema to make sure all has moved out.  Next you can take a cleansing beverage of  the following:

Heirloom Tomato or Premier Tomato Concentrate in Water3529-1

Organic Celery stalks -2

1-2 tbs of the premiere olive oil

1 -2 capsule of premier turmeric

1-2 caps allicidin or fresh raw garlic

Blend well in your vitamix.

This can help further clear putrid matter from the GI tract.

You can then go about your day and rest as you require it.

Note: Best to do the flush around the new moon. The Full Moon can be quite intense as this is the time where the moon has a magnified effect on us.  It also is the time parasites come out more than the new moon.  It can be intense on the full moon. Use your own intuition here.

All I can say is the feeling I felt after this flush was pretty remarkable. Although I had no stones, I am sure toxins were released and removed via the kidneys and bowels.  Gratitude, Peace, Joy and Present Moment Awareness are the feelings after you do a flush like this.

If you are interested in this flush I can send you the kit with all the ingredients you require. This is pretty much the best of the best.  Please contact me for details! Happy Flushing Family:)
