Why Colorado Cleanse? - Average Reading Time: 4 minutes and 3 seconds Today, we are all victims of a failed dietary strategy that was imposed on us in 1961 when the American Heart Association declared cholesterol a public health concern, putting cholesterol on the “Nutrient Concern” List. (1) When that happened, consumption of cholesterol and saturated fats greatly declined […] The post Why Colorado Cleanse? appeared first on Dr. Douillard's LifeSpa.

"When we’re thrust over and over again into stress-inducing situations during childhood, we lose the ability to respond appropriately and effectively to future stressors—10, 20, even 30 years later." https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-last-best-cure/201508/7-ways-childhood-adversity-changes-your-brain

What's possibly even more shocking is that your ability to respond to stress can also be impacted by periods of extreme stress your ancestors experienced. But this is not a life sentence, learn how you can reverse the life sentence of epigenetics:

Menstruation falls under the general Ayurvedic heading of Yonivyad: health concerns of the female genital tract. It is usually associated with mood swings, nervous tension, and emotional disturbances, and it is often accompanied by a set of physical complaints. (1-5)

The premise of Ayurveda is not based on the removal of symptoms. Rather, it empowers the body’s ability to heal itself. In this regard, the focus of the treatment identifies and addresses the initial cause of menses-related concerns. These problems often manifest early in the lifestyle of a menstruating young woman. Caraka and other Ayurvedic authorities stated that the suppression of natural urges, such as resisting the urge to go to the bathroom or doing things in excess like sex or exercise, along with an unhealthy lifestyle and improper diet, are linked to the cause of female reproductive issues. (1-5) Here in the West, the average female strays from following some of the major feminine health guidelines that are mainstay in the culture of India’s Ayurveda. The causes of some of our modern health concerns, which did not exist as such in Vedic times, have to be re-investigated from a modern perspective to focus on lifestyle and behavior.

Things don’t always come naturally to us. So keep trying! (She's quite a little trooper) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpHljOuKzMQ

And yet some things that do come naturally, we often grow or train ourselves out of. For example, when you watch a child run they're fox running perfectly. But over the years we train with special running shoes and women cram their feet into tiny heels, and over time we begin to subtly shift from that perfect running style we knew instinctually as children. I explain how to get back to running like a child here: http://lifespa.com/run-like-a-child/
