Get Answers with a Hair Intolerance Test — Here’s my story …

“When I find something that works for me, I want to share it with others …”

The result of my Hair Intolerance Test changed my life! I learned that there were many things that I was eating and drinking and were incorporated into my life, including flowers at my desk, that my body had problems with. This included different essential oils, herbs and additives. They caused my body to release histamines that created problematic behaviors, such as allergy symptoms, itchy skin, severe rashes, foggy memory, lethargic behaviors, muscle pain, stiff joints, restless sleeping, irritability, weight gain, belly pain, IBS, depression, to name a few … I’m sure there are more. Do you get the picture?   

I was tired of all of the doctor visits and medications, especially since I was still experiencing the same symptoms. Like many, I took matters into my own hands. I started being my own doctor in order to take back control of my health. I did what I thought I needed to do … eating right, hydrating with water. To alkalize my body, I added colon hydrotherapy, massage, infrared sauna treatments, and added herbs, enzymes, pre- and probiotics to my diet. I also started eating less gluten, sugar and dairy. I thought I was eating the right foods … more fruits and vegetables. But, little did I know that some of these fruits and vegetables were not tolerant with my body, so my symptoms continued. I experienced acidic histamine release from foods (like tomatoes) and my environment that apparently caused a leaky gut response.

Because of my leaky gut, I broke out in a rash (pictured below) that was uncontrollable. My lab work showed that inflammation in my body was elevated, which is a sign of auto immune disease. I thought I was doing my body good with the changes to the foods I was eating. Was I wrong! Based on the lab results, I decided to do a juice and water cleanse to give my body and digestion a rest.

During this journey, I learned about OXALATES which are in spinach, cocoa, okra, beets, french fries, sweet potatoes, bran cereals and many other foods. Oxalates are not good if you have leaky gut issues or kidney issues. They can cause kidney stones. So I was back to cutting certain foods out of my diet and life again. Although, I did see a noticeable difference … the rash was gone (thank God), but my skin was still itchy and I still had brain fog. So, my search continued.

While researching, I came across the Hair Intolerance Test, and I am SO thankful I did … it CHANGED my life! After taking a simple test, I learned what was causing my issues. A few small lifestyle and food changes later, and I had no more itchy skin … my energy is up and my overall wellness is up to 90%, wonderful. It’s great being 60!

If any of my story rings true for you, I highly recommend taking this test. Give yourself and your body a break from guessing. This one simple test looks at 700 environmental, food, beverage, and heavy metal intolerances. In two weeks, you’ll have answers.

A Clean Colon: the Key to Health

Did you know the average American may be carrying as much as 10-25 pounds of impacted fecal matter in their colon? And that is someone of normal weight with no known allergies! These toxins wedged in the digestive track are absorbed by the bloodstream, resulting in the body’s inability to metabolize food properly or to provide vital energy for living.

There is a surprisingly wide range of health problems that colon toxicity contributes to, many that a lot of us experience everyday, including: bloating, constipation, gas, fatigue, food cravings, hypoglycemia, allergies, arthritis, difficultly losing weight, among many others.

A healthy colon should provide you with two to three bowel movements per day, shortly after each meal. Elimination should be complete, fast and easy. The stool should be light brown in color, long and large in diameter, fluffy in texture, and floating on the top of the water. Yes, floating!

Take care of your colon and your colon will take care of you!

Cleanse the Natural Way

If you suffer from constipation, a colon cleanse can be the best way to regain regular bowel movements and restore your colon’s health. There are several ways to naturally cleanse the colon and to get things moving. Include each into your lifestyle to keep your colon healthy and happy …

  1. Add fiber to your diet. A diet high in fiber (up to 40 grams a day, both soluble and insoluble), slows the emptying time of the stomach and moves feces through the intestines quicker by bulking it up. A good rule of thumb is to add fibrous foods into each meal, such as: oatmeal for breakfast, lentils in your raw salad for lunch, berries for snacks, and a big stir fry vegetable bowl for dinner. Adding fiber to your diet is especially useful in providing a feeling of fullness and decreased appetite, which can also result in beneficial weight loss.
  2. Watch your diet. Eliminate all things contributing to the problem, such as: processed foods, sugar, white flour, alcohol and caffeine, food additives, colorings and preservatives, fruit and vegetables treated with pesticides, and most dairy.
  3. Hydrate. It is essential to drink 8-10 glasses of pure, filtered water each day. Drinking 3 glasses of water before breakfast will help to really get things moving early.
  4. Get moving. Exercise speeds up bowel action and encourages healthy elimination. And it doesn’t have to be strenuous exercise. Just get moving, such as walking, to get things moving.
  5. Colon Detox. Detoxing your colon regularly will do wonders to your health. And, while colon cleansing is not a weight-loss procedure, dropping weight is often a welcomed side effect! Popular colon flushes include: colonics with water, juice cleanses and natural colon cleansing supplements. Colon cleanses wash out toxins and waste material that have become trapped in your colon.
