The Plan

By Lyn-Genet Recitas

An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Book

Inflammation has become infamous.

In recent studies, it has been linked to obesity, heart problems, and thyroid problems (among other things).

And where does inflammation come from? The foods we eat, and our environment!

PLUS! Eating the wrong foods can cause an imbalance in the gut flora, and even disrupt normal hormonal function.

And lord knows we’ve seen MANY reminders of the importance of the gut flora to overall health.

It affects energy levels, brain function, mood, constipation, diarrhea, migraines, bad breath, and even how often you snap at your kids.

It’s true…your diet affects your mood and your tolerance to stressful situations!

Most diets are one-size-fits-all.

A Review of "The Body Keeps the Score" by Bessel Van Der Kolk

It can be found in the home.

Physical Abuse

Sexual Abuse

Child Abuse

Mental Abuse

Absent Parents

Or even life-threatening accidents.

Trauma comes in many forms.

And sometimes it even comes from watching a loved-one suffer.

Like watching mommy being beaten.

Many of us have suffered traumas over the course of our lives. And many of us live in denial. The pain of the event is too great to imagine…so we shut it out…pretend like everything is ok.

A Review of In an Unspoken Voice by Peter Levine

A Review of In an Unspoken Voice by Peter Levine

If you're interested in trauma and PTSD....

This is the book for you.

This book is the complete guide to trauma, and somatic experiencing.

If you’re wondering what somatic experiencing is….

It’s a technique to allow you to release trauma.

See when we are in a fight or flight situation, and we can do neither…we have a secret third option: freeze.

And when we freeze (such as during rape or sexual abuse) the large amounts of energy summoned for the fight or flight response are stored inside the body.

Which leads to all kinds of problems.

This is the therapy that changed my life.

See I had been to many therapists before, but I was still stuck feeling miserable, lonely, and numb.
