April 22, 2018 Blog/Newsletter... Spring has Sprung

Published by: janean strong on 04-22-2018





Spring has finally sprung.... wow, what a long winter!
Mysti and I took a lovely walk in the park to experience the waterfall at this time of the year. The smell of spring was in the air. I inhaled deeply and then... oh yeh there is that other familiar smell... the waft of pot in the air.
Kinda blew that Spring freshness... ah well.

I love the temperature, the smells, the breeze and even spring rain. This week I was pondering how Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons. But that hasn't always been the case. The past 2 or 3 years I didn't look forward to Spring and didn't care. It just meant more work to do and felt depressing. I remember thinking how unusual that was as I always enjoyed Spring so much and looked forward to it.
I didn't realize at the time that I had Gut Dysbiosis. That means the digestive tract or the gut microbiome can't digest food properly... lots of bacterial overgrowth, inflammation and not the right proportions of good bacteria. 9 out of 10 chronic conditions are related to gut inflammation and many depressions are caused by it. Using Functional Medicine and True Cures, my energy is back, brain fog and depression.... gone. Doesn't mean I don't feel down now and then, but that deep depression has lifted. It is hard to describe what a huge relief it all is. There are still some issues to deal with but really... it's like the difference between night and day!
I am truly grateful and after having experienced it I can understand how debilitating depression can be. I am grateful to be 'back on track'!

If you want to learn about how inflammation affects out body, mind & spirit
Listen to Podcast Episode #21
with Dr. Matt Flory

My latest Podcast conversation is with Dr. Mary Ruwart, Death by Regulation, How We Were Robbed of a Golden Age of Health and How We Can Reclaim It
An interesting title for a book, I think... this turned out to be an equally interesting conversation. Lots of information I had not previously known!

In 1962, Congress passed possibly the deadliest regulations of all time: the 1962 Amendments to the Food & Drug Act. This “living law” continues to metastasize to this day, reshaping the pharmaceutical cartel, the supplement industry, the practice of medicine and transforming our health care paradigm from prevention to treatment. Research shows at least half of Americans who have died since 1962 lost about 10 years of their lives to the Amendments; in all likelihood, each of us has been affected.
Learn why Congress passed the Amendments in the first place? Have they made a difference?

Find out how The Amendments added about 10 years to the time it takes for new drugs to get from the lab bench to the marketplace. They destroyed over 50% of our innovations and censored the dissemination of life-saving information.

Dr. Ruwart's new book, Death by Regulation, is now available for purchase through Amazon or
Death by Regulation Website

For archived Conversations I have chosen:

1. Paul O'Brien, Great Decisions, Perfect Timing
Paul O'Brien uses his life story as the unfolding backdrop for his take on synchronicity, belief engineering, intuitive intelligence and more. If you want to learn to make better decisions in your life, this is the episode for you.
