this week my dear friend dr. jennifer conway (you may remember her from here) led a fabulous class on "your path to wellness" with a focus on inflammation, toxins, and allergies.
jen's main focus is on nutritional response testing, which we were able to watch her test two different people which was really interesting. she determines what toxins are causing problems in your body with a series of measuring responses to different stimuli which are in viles. she has been able to help so many people change their lives by determining what they need to eliminate from their diet, as well as their environment.
we talked about some of the pioneers of healthy living like weston a price. he was a dentist who founded the research section of the american dental association which he served on from 1914-1928, he determined through his travels that people in different countries were getting cavities once the western diet was introduced.
we discussed standard process which is one of the oldest manufacturers of vitamins and supplements. they use all organic ingredients.
we also talked about the importance of getting good vitamins that are all natural. a lot of the vitamins that you find in big box stores and drug stores are synthetic.
aluminum is one of the biggest toxins and cause for several cancers. aluminum is most commonly found in deodorant which is applied right next to several lymph nodes. i have found that after switching to an all natural deodorant that i don't have any issues with body aroma (the word b.o. grosses me out) or sweating. hmmm. i love tom's of maine's lavender deodorant with the salt.
please share any successes or healthy changes you've made! got questions? leave them in the comment section and i'll do my best to answer them!
