Blood Sugar Stabilization
The foundation of all nutrition is blood sugar stabilization. Research has shown that people who live to be 100 all have a common biochemistry of stabilized blood sugar. Kelly Jean will lead you in a dietary transformation that will change your eating habits and actively focus on blood sugar stabilization. You will benefit from personal dietary guidelines that will stabilize your blood sugar immediately. Eating the right types of proteins, fats and carbohydrates in the right ratios at optimal intervals will help stabilize your glucose levels and create a harmonious balance throughout your body. This balance will allow your body to purge undesirable body fats, toxins and excess sodium while protecting lean muscle mass and boosting your metabolism. Overall, the transformation that can result from correct blood sugar stabilization is remarkable. You will be amazed by the mental transformation you can expect from fully committing to glucose stabilization. Blood sugar stabilization balances your brain chemistry and hormones, which will give you the rejuvenated sense of joy and true total body wellness.
Alkalizing your blood is another very important step to healing your body and for maintaining your health. Alkalizing, or de-acidifying your blood is one of the most rewarding targets you can set your sights on because properly balancing your pH will transform you into a truly happier, healthier and well-balanced individual. High acidity can sprout a full spectrum of negative health issues, including weight gain, decreased energy, inflammation, increased toxins, mental confusion, heartburn, digestive issues, acid reflux, cancer, gingivitis and osteoporosis. A healthy pH balance means the body is oxygenated, allowing it to detoxify and heal itself. When our cells are empowered with this ability, we build a powerful immunity to diseases and a lower propensity towards cancer. There is a simple at-home test that can determine your blood’s acidity. If you are one of the millions of Americans who have acidic blood, there is no reason to be alarmed because Kelly Jean can help you overcome this obstacle through blood alkalization. The longer you work with Kelly Jean, the better you will feel: physically, mentally and emotionally. Kelly Jean’s customized all-natural approach to wellness will embolden you with the tools needed to live a healthy life rooted in great education and proper nutrition. Even if you are not currently acidic, education is key to maintaining proper pH and good health.
Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivities can be physically and emotionally damaging, and yet they are rarely addressed because they frequently go completely undetected. Food sensitivity occurs when the naturally occurring chemical composition of certain foods, medicinal herbs, food additives or food coloring has a direct negative effect on the brain or body. Food sensitivity is actually much more common than standard food allergies. (According to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, only about 4% of the United States population has a food allergy.) The body’s intolerance and sensitivity for specific foods on the other hand is found to be an issue among most of the population and can be characterized by a wide range of ailments including digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, aching joints, skin disorders and even behavioral issues.
The current medical community has yet to make a significant effort aimed at raising public awareness about the phenomenon of hidden food sensitivities. More often than not the symptoms of these intolerances are misunderstood and the root of the problem is rarely considered to be food-related. Those with food intolerances may receive treatment for their symptoms; however, until they discover they have specific food intolerance they will continue to subject themselves to that food trigger over and over again. It is estimated that a staggering 70-80% of Americans suffer from food sensitivities.
Most people with food sensitivities are completely unaware of their condition and continually expose themselves to the food trigger. By identifying hidden sensitivities you can finally understand the specific foods your body cannot handle and establish your personal dietary restrictions. Test results are presented to you in an easy to understand, color-coded format. They highlight your incompatible foods and the level of each reaction (severe, moderate or mild).
From this data, Kelly Jean will develop a personalized dietary plan to address your test results and your newly discovered food sensitivities. Most clients are shocked by the results of their testing and their only regret is not doing it sooner. Food sensitivity testing is a necessity for those who want to successfully heal the body and reach optimal health more quickly.
“I have personally gone through food sensitivity and intolerance testing and have had the experience of living this advanced nutrition. I will show you how to be successful with this disciplined way of eating in “real life” and how to integrate it into a busy schedule.” -Kelly Jean Dammeyer
The following are exerts from an article written by Dr. Mark Hyman, MD Most of us do not recognize or know (including most of your doctors) that digestive problems wreak havoc over your entire body leading to allergies, arthritis, autoimmune disease, rashes, acne, chronic fatigue, mood disorders, autism, dementia, cancer and more. So having a healthy gut means more than just not being annoyed by a little bloating or heartburn! It is central to your entire health. It is connected to everything that happens in your body.
The health of your gut determines what nutrients are absorbed and what toxins, allergens and microbes are kept out, and therefore it is directly linked to the health of the total organism. Intestinal health could be defined as the optimal digestion, absorption and assimilation of food. But that is a big job that depends on many other factors. For example, the bugs in your gut are like a rain forest – a diverse and interdependent ecosystem. They must be in balance for you to be healthy.
There are five hundred species and 3 pounds of bacteria in your gut; it’s a huge chemical factory that helps you digest your food, produces vitamins, helps regulate hormones, excrete toxins and produce healing compounds that keep your gut healthy. Too many of the wrong ones like parasites, yeasts or bad bacteria, or not enough of the good ones like lactobacillus or bifidobacteria can lead to serious damage to your health.
Your entire immune system (and your body) is protected from the toxic environment in your gut by a layer only one cell thick. This thin layer covers a surface area the size of a tennis court—yet it’s basically containing a sewer. If that barrier is damaged, you will get sick and create an overactive immune system, producing inflammation throughout the body.And then there is your second brain, your gut nervous system. Your gut, in fact, contains more neurotransmitters than your brain. It is highly wired back to your brain and messages travel back and forth. When those messages altered for any reason in any direction – from the brain to the gut or the gut to the brain – your health will suffer.
Then, of course, your gut has to get rid of all the toxins produced as a byproduct of your metabolism that your liver dumps in through the bile, and if things get backed up, you will become toxic.
And in the midst of all of this, your gut must break down all the food you eat into its individual components, separate out all the vitamins and minerals and shuttle everything across that one cell thick layer into your bloodstream for you to stay healthy. (Hyman, Dr. Mark. “UltraWellness Lesson 4: Gut & Digestive Health Dr. Mark Hyman.” Dr Mark Hyman. N.p., 28 Apr. 2010. Web. 22 Apr. 2015.) There are many approaches to healing the gut. It is important to know if you have a candida overgrowth, a leaky gut or a bacterial overgrowth. Kelly Jean will help you identify your issues and will design a healing protocol specific to you.
Supplements, Healing Remedies and Super Foods
So many people are confused when it comes to their supplements. You could be doing more harm than good with supplements because the biochemistry of our body is extremely sensitive and complex. Overloading the body can have devastating effects because too much of a good thing is actually harmful. Being deficient in a vitamin or mineral is equally important and could ultimately cost us our health. Implementing supplements, healing remedies and super foods the right way will help you successfully and more quickly reach your health goals.
It is important to understand the basic tendencies of deficiency, underlying issues in the body and the priority of where to begin first for restoring balance. When you are able to identify the root problem then you are able to strategically implement supplements, healing remedies and super foods. This allows the body to focus on the areas of healing which then has a positive cascading effect on balancing other systems, glands and organs.
There are so many different types of detoxes out there and often times people turn to them out of desperation to lose weight or to regain control over their unhealthy eating habits and behaviors. Unfortunately, more often than not, people revert back to their old ways pretty quickly because they never really deal with their unhealthy habits in a productive manner.
Detoxifying the liver is a wonderful tool for health when done correctly but damaging if done incorrectly. When detoxing correctly, you should be strengthening all systems while flushing your liver; however, many detoxes actually weaken the body while cleansing the liver. When this happens, you set yourself up for other problems, which often remain undetected. For example, raw juicing may cause protein, fat and mineral deficiencies.
Additionally, if you have a pre-existing thyroid condition, raw juicing can make it worse. The body may also become too yin. This causes a host of symptoms, which includes the body feeling colder, less energetic with a slower metabolism. You may become more prone to yeast and other fungal diseases as well as parasitic illnesses. Unknowingly, you set yourselves up for cravings again because your body understandably tries to make up for what it lost. Kelly Jean customizes your detox so that the benefits are cleansing, strengthening and healing.
Restore the Thyroid and Adrenals
You have heard about these important glands and just how much power they have on our health. They will make us or break us. Your adrenals are responsible for every function in every gland, tissue and organ.
Fifty hormones are manufactured in the adrenals, two of which are major (cortisol and adrenaline). Most people do not realize it; however, 40% of our sex hormones are manufactured in the adrenal glands. When our adrenals are exhausted (80% of the population has adrenal fatigue at one point or another in their life), we suffer from fatigue, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, allergies, loss of libido, menopause symptoms and the list goes on.
The thyroid is responsible for our metabolism, how quickly we digest our foods and our body temperature. When our thyroid is compromised you may often feel cold, constipated, unable to lose weight and in fact gain weight no matter how you eat. You may also experience depression and various mood swings.
Kelly Jean has had first hand experience in the area of healing her own adrenals and thyroid naturally without the use of medications. When naturally healing these glands, it requires dedication and the willingness to change the things that led you to the imbalance. The rewards of doing the work are great because when you have healthy adrenals and a healthy thyroid, you will feel a level of health that before was unimaginable.
Kelly Jean will help you restore glandular health with specific nutritional support, the integration of supplements, healing remedies, super foods and lifestyle changes.
