Maybe you have Adrenal Fatigue &
Copper Toxicity??

If you have a copper toxicity in your tissues from lack of #copper binding proteins you’ll have a struggle with your histamine levels as well. High #histamine symptoms are often equated with#estrogen dominance symptom because of under-methylation. Your #adrenals become the innocent victims of this toxic realm. B12 slows down histamine release which is why vegans often struggle the right balance of histamine levels and the result is small amounts of PCOS symptoms that seem to come and go. But if you are an under-metalator… B12 is not your friend, and you cannot be vegan. Sorry, but true. You need B12 dearly, and you have to get it naturally not in supplementation.

The best sources or B12 in foods are: Sardines, Salmon, Tuna, Cod, Lamb, Scallops. One serving of any of these will give 100% of your B12 needed.

And when I take a b-complex… look out… my anxiety goes through the roof… its folate I need not folic acid.

The key is you to clear out more than just your colon. You need to clear out your system all the way through to the tissues. That can’t be done in a quick cleanse. It takes a natural, healthy routine in your life.

How do Histamine Levels Figure Into All Of These Issues?


I’m So FROZEN… Oh wait, that’s just excess histamine release

The extreme chill you feel could be excess histamine release. As well symptoms that appear to be allergy related may be more obscure than you think. For example, sneezing may be an allergy symptom, but muscle pain, insomnia and acid reflux may also be signs of allergy. These are all signs of excessive histamines. Since histamine has a large amount of functions within the human body, the effects of high histamine blood levels can vary widely.

Current studies have shown that there are direct links between histamines, the irritants produced in an allergic reaction, and the nervous system. People with too much histamine in their brains experience anxiety and depression. And detox raises histamine levels. I first started to figure out histamines when I would come home from the gym and an hour later is when I’d start to freeze and want to curl up in a ball under a mountain of blankets.

The symptoms of toxicity may also be more obscure than you think. You may have headaches, joint pains, colitis and even poor coordination may be signs of toxicity. Another sign is skin eruptions and rashes. I woke up with a nice little rash this morning, too.

Your body has a unique detoxification system. It comes with many fail-safe mechanisms. A toxin may simply be detoxified and rendered harmless – usually by the liver. This is often accomplished through enzymes with the help of antioxidants. These poisons may be turned into useful tools, such as when blood toxins are turned into bile to help us digest fat from our diet.

Some toxins are difficult to detoxify; they may be stored permanently in fat. Other toxins and allergens are stored temporarily in water in the lymphatic system. Detoxification, stress, and even like I said, exercise can cause these symptoms. This is why people get “puffy” with allergies or toxicity. I know you’ve had that issue before. These high-histamine levels often are due to a metabolic imbalance that results from under-methylation. Sound familiar??

I think I’m going to kick up my Acerola Berry and Citrus oils today, because both of these help release those toxins that my body just wants to dig deep and hold on to.

Today was the first day of the Renewal process day 21… think my body is ready for some renewal before we move into next month. Want to join me? I’m starting another clean month in 10 days.
Do a wellness consult and see how I can help. Believe me that you can feel better if you do the process, and use the products.

Going Through Detox When Your Body Says “NO” – And What The Liver Has To Do With ItLi

Going Through Detox With The Vitality Reset Protocol Kit

I am dreaming of a healthier liver… what about you?

Dreaming Of A Healthy Liver I Going Through Detox With The DoTERRA Reboot Protocol Kit I Paleo Vegeo Barbara Christensen Wellness Advocate

I saw this image on Instagram and it was too perfect to not share being where I am this week. I’m into the second phase of my first Vitality Reset and my skin is going crazy. That means my primary “chimneys” are struggling to detoxify all of the toxins in my body. I feel like, knowing how clean and green I live, that my body doesn’t detox well. I probably struggle a lot with the endocrine issues because of the inability to detoxify properly. How many of you feel like you are dealing with the same sort of issues?

I am going to increase the detoxification oils to more than 2 drops, twice a day. I know that often you have to increase rather than decrease. I am only using, however, one gi cleansing oil capsul a day because I don’t want to release the toxins into my body too quickly. That’s why I like this cleanse. I get to control the aspects to suit my life… and I dream of being toxin-free… although I know I’ll have to go through many rounds of this to get there.

Why The Liver Is The Focus of My Detox

The liver is one of the most important organ in the human body and during a program like this sometimes the liver will become overloaded with toxins that are being released from storage sites throughout the body. I know this, and I know what I’m living with. This is akin to overloading a toilet, and my skin is showing it. Until then you may only see photos when I’ve had my hair professionally done. LOL… you know what I mean?

Until then you can see me standing around taking supplements, and I’ll be increasing my Vitamin D and Kelp again, and making sure I get a good dose of undenatured whey every day. I went back off the hormones. The doctor’s visits were out of town, and not covered by insurance. $300 plus another $400 or more for blood tests through their lab. Then of course the compound hormones are not covered by insurance. I’m going to try to naturally clear out my body and get my hormones back on track.

A lot of you may not realize that one of the most important functions of the liver is to break down and remove excess hormones from our body. The one hormone in particular is estrogen. As you know, estrogen is a big player in our endocrine health. When estrogen has done it’s job in the body, it is sent to the liver so it can be broken down and removed through the colon. Unfortunately, my liver is all junked up, I believe, from the excess toxins and unable to function optimally and thus cannot remove estrogen at it’s normal rate.  Estrogen is not metabolized properly and can be reabsorbed back into the body causing lots of issues.

A great article I read from Experience Life talked about how this diet all is so important in this process:  

By encouraging us to eat a lot of meat (much of which is laden with toxins), and discouraging us from eating enough fiber-rich, water-dense fruits and vegetables, such diets can slow elimination. By loading us up with so many proteins that our stomachs can’t produce enough acid to digest them all, such diets can inhibit proper digestion, overloading our liver and intestines with a stream of nasty, internally produced poisons such as indican, ammonia, cadaverine and histide.

So be thankful that you are already ahead of the game by eating more vegetables than the average person. I’ll keep sharing the journey. I am on the second ten days, and then I’ll re-nourish my digestive tract with digestive flora. And then we’ll start all over again. How many cycles I will need, I’m not sure. Will keep you posted.
