Tips on How to Reduce and Eliminate Inflammation
Inflammation is the body’s natural defense against damaged cells, bacteria and viruses. In some diseases the body’s defense system known as the immune system triggers an inflammatory response when there are no foreign invaders to fight off. The body’s normally protective immune system causes damage to its own tissues. The body responds as if normal tissues are infected or somehow abnormal. This is called autoimmune disease.
Symptoms include redness, headaches, swollen joints, fever/chills, skin conditions such as rashes, arthritis, urinary tract infections, irritable bowel syndrome and food allergies.
Inflammation usually starts in the gut so we should clean out our gut and do cleanses to have a healthy system. Take out toxins and foods such as sugar, soda, artificial sweets and additives, gluten, saturated fats, fried foods and dairy. Eat more anti-inflammatory foods such as onions and garlic, pineapple, tart cherries. Use turmeric and ginger. Fermented foods and other probiotics are good to ingest for a healthy system. Drink alkaline water and lemon water.
Moving the lymphatic system helps clear the toxins and inflammation. Skin brushing, rebounding and lymphatic massage can help move the lymph system.
For physical pain, apply arnica to the area.

Avocados are the best fruit source of vitamin E, an essential vitamin that helps protects against many diseases and helps maintains overall health Avocados have been shown to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer. Avocado, like olive oil, is high in oleic acid, which has been shown to prevent breast cancer in numerous studies Research has shown that certain elements in avocados are able to seek out pre-cancerous and cancerous oral cancer cells and destroy them without harming healthy cells.
In a 1996 study by researchers at the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social in Mexico, the 45 volunteers who ate avocados every day for a week experienced an average 17% drop in total blood cholesterol. Their cholesterol ratio also changed in a healthy way: Their levels of LDL and triglycerides, both associated with heart disease, went down. Their HDL levels, which tend to lower the risk of heart disease, climbed.
One cup of avocado has 23% of the recommended daily value of folate. Studies show that people who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower incidence of heart disease than those who don’t. The vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, and glutathione in avocado are also great for your heart. The high levels of folate in avocado are also protective against strokes. People who eat diets rich in folate have a much lower risk of stroke than those who don’t
Avocados have more of the carotenoid lutein than any other commonly consumed fruit. Lutein protects against macular degeneration and cataracts, two disabling age-related eye diseases.
Avocados add great variety to a well balanced, low-fat diet.Research has found that certain nutrients are absorbed better when eaten with avocado. In one study, when participants ate a salad containing avocados, they absorbed five times the amount of carotenoids (a group of nutrients that includes lycopene and beta carotene) than those who didn’t include avocados.
Instead of spreading butter or cream cheese on your bread or bagel, use some mashed avocado instead. Replace that mayo you’d usually put on a sandwich with avocado slices. You’ll not only save calories, you’ll be cutting out saturated fat and increasing your daily intake of monounsaturated fat as well
Avocado can be used as a skin moisturizer, cleansing cream, makeup base, sunscreen, lipstick, bath oil, and hair conditioner.
The flesh of a ripe avocado soothes sun burnt skin. Just cut the fruit in half and rub it gently over the affected areas.
Treat yourself to an avocado facial. Avocado has moisturizing elements to help make your skin more beautiful. For years, people have used avocado as a natural facial treatment, especially for dry skin. It’s easy to do in your own home. Just remove your makeup and wash your face with warm water and soap or your favorite cleanser. Mash some avocado and mix it with a little milk or oatmeal and apply it to your face. Leave it there for 10 minutes, then rinse it off with lots of water.
If you have blemished skin, age spots or sun damaged skin the sterolins found in avocado oil can reduce blemishes and also relieve damaged skin, in particular damage caused by sun exposure. Avocado oil also helps to increase collagen production naturally.

Many people have asked me when do I sleep as I am always busy and some have noticed that I am replying to emails at 3 am.
I have lots of energy most days and one of the things that keeps me going is looking forward to what each day brings into my life. However, even though I have passion in what I do, I didn’t always
have the energy to do it. At one time, I barely could get out of bed, as it was too much energy to even sit up. Even though all I wanted to do was sleep at night, I would end up with insomnia, which made it worse to try to function during the day
I finally hit an all time low and dragged myself to my naturopath doctor who tested me. She said I had adrenal burnout. Adrenal Fatigue and burnout are where the adrenals are unable to produce adequate amounts of cortisol, cortisone, and other hormones necessary to provide the energy to fight off infections, maintain blood sugar levels, metabolism, etc.
It was not going to be a quick fix as I had let myself become so burnout that I was not producing cortisone, or any of the other necessary hormones to function. My thyroid was off as well as my blood sugar was low. I was a mess! However following the suggestions of my naturopath doctor, I was able to finally get back to normal within 6 months. Now, I do things to prevent burnout and I want to share with you what I did and how I maintain.
Here are some tips that have helped me:
Lots of rest- I make sure that I take frequent breaks and go to bed at a decent hour.
I pace myself so that I don’t go beyond my physical and emotional limit.
I take supplements, especially B vitamins, zinc and magnesium.
My naturopath doctor had also prescribed a homeopathic product to help rebuild the adrenals, and now I only take one once a month.
I eat regularly and make sure I have breakfast as this helps the blood sugar level. However, I am careful not to eat too much fruit in the mornings.
Taking some sea salt helps.
I make sure I have a balance of protein and carbohydrates (the good kind)
I stay away from caffeine, sugar, fast food, junk foods and soda.
Once in a while I slip but do not let this become a habit.
I try to manage stress better-Now I have to admit that this has been challenging as I seem to have a low tolerance of stress, however I have found that meditation, deep breathing, walking, doing yoga, and just being in nature helps tremendously.
Louise L. Hay suggests these affirmations that may help “I love and approve of myself. It is safe for me to care for myself” I lovingly take care of my body, my mind and my emotions.” I lovingly balance my mind and my body”
Take care of yourself as you are worth it.

How does a Healthy Person Live?
Dr. Mitzi Reed, N.D.
I was inspired this week to write about what is considered healthy and how does someone who is healthy live. Seems that there is so much emphasis on looks, however looks can be deceiving. Being thin does not necessarily mean a person is healthy and being overweight by society’s standards does not necessarily mean a person is not healthy.
The media would like to make you think that unless you buy and use their product, that you aren’t good enough. They are always manipulating consumers to buy into this unrealistic version of what a perfect person should look like.
So what makes for a healthy person? What kind of lifestyle does a healthy person live?
A healthy attitude is the first thing that a healthy person has.
They wake up happy, positive and looking forward to the new day and the endless possibilities that await for them. They love life and are grateful for each moment that they are alive. They surround themselves with other healthy minded, positive people.
They make conscious choices to live a healthy lifestyle. They choose healthy foods at least 90% of the time and aren’t afraid to indulge now and then. They eat in moderation. They educate themselves about being healthy but aren’t obsessed by it.
Supplements are usually part of the healthy lifestyle regime. Most foods today lack the vital nutrients due to processing, the degrading of the soil, etc. Quality supplements is a good addition.
They are physically active. They don’t necessarily are stringent about going to the gym everyday, but they look for ways to enjoy recreational and leisure type of activities that will move their bodies. Walking, dancing, yoga, stretches, hiking, bicycling, are just a few activities.
Nurturing oneself is very important. Smooth on some moisturizing lotion, get a massage now and then, sip a cup of herbal tea, sitting by a waterfall, they may buy something that is within their budget that will make themselves feel special and alive.
So, I encourage you to this week to find ways that will inspire you to live healthy. Take back your power over your own health.

Pau d’arco Medicnal Uses
Dr.Mitzi Reed, N.D.
The Pau d’arco tree is an evergreen tree that grows in the warm parts of Central and South America. As early as 1873, there are reports of medicinal uses of Pau d’arco.
The inner bark of the tree is used medicinally to treat a wide range of conditions, including pain, arthritis, inflammation of the prostate gland (prostatitis), fever, dysentery, boils and ulcers, and various cancers. Pau d’Arco is claimed to strengthen the body’s immune system,
Pau d’Arco is typically taken in the form of tea or tincture, however it is also available in tablets, capsules and other forms. To prepare your Pau d’Arco tea, mix 1 tablespoon of the inner bark tea into a teapot along with each 8 fluid ounce cup of water that you use. If using tea bags, you may follow their ratios instead of measuring by tablespoons.
Allow the herbal tea to reach a boil, and then let it boil (but not quickly) for up to 30 minutes, depending upon your taste. It may take some time for the lapacho to be disseminated in this infusion, but 30 minutes is more than a sufficient amount of time. Afterward, you can remove the tea from the heat and let the Pau d’Arco continue to brew while the temperature of the drink lowers to that of your preference. To ensure that no bark is left in the tea that is to be served, use a strainer.
The use of herbs is a time honored approach to strengthening the body and treating disease. Herbs, however, can trigger side effects and can interact with other herbs, supplements, or medications. For these reasons, you should take herbs with care, under the supervision of a health care provider.
Talk to your health care provider to determine the proper dose of pau d’arco because too much can be dangerous.At recommended doses, side effects are uncommon but may include anemia, nausea, diarrhea, and dizziness.High doses can cause uncontrolled bleeding and vomiting. Pregnant and nursing women should not take pau d’arco.

Green Drinks are not just for St. Patricks Day.
Dr.Mitzi Reed N.D.
A great way to start your day is to have a glass of veggie juice. Not the kind you buy from the store, but one that you make at home and make into a smoothie or juice it from your juicer.
It is simple to make and is delicious and nutritious. Green smoothies use the whole fruit and vegetable so that you get all the fiber and nutrition.
Greens are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, live enzymes, phytonutrients, and amino acids (protein) along with being a great source of fiber. Fiber is essential for good colon health and it keeps your bowels in working order.
Green smoothies are rich with chlorophyll which some natural health experts say enhances the immune system, purifies the blood and rejuvenates the body. “Consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion.” Dr. Ann Wigmore.
Fruits and vegetables are alkaline foods and that consuming these foods helps maintain a proper alkaline balance in the body. Acid-producing foods can raise the PH level of the blood, which can cause your body to leach calcium from your bones to neutralize it, thus increasing your risk for osteoporosis.
Drinking your greens is very good for weight loss because the high water content and the potentially high fiber content fill you up. Green smoothies reduce cravings for unhealthy foods and after a few weeks of drinking smoothies, you will crave healthier foods such as fruits, vegetables and greens.
Here are some more benefits to drinking your greens:
It helps to boost your immune system. It increases your mental performance, your thoughts become clearer. It normalizes your blood sugar. It also helps to improve your eyesight.
It helps to clear your skin and give it that radiant, glowing look.
So, drink up and get healthy!
