Truth or dare?

detoxing from foot baths to diet to energy work
“Detoxing” –from foot baths to diet to energy work.
  • The basic premise is to take something out of the body that has build up.
  • Nature has an innate sense of surviving by natural “detoxing” – the liver.
  • With pollution comes eventual build up (remember the Native American?)
  • With Technology, Post-War Chemicals, Food Industry, Transportation, Antibiotics- (pharmaceuticals)…comes indulgence and exposure…..but lets concentrate on food-
  • When you take in for nutrition, you eliminate anything that can’t be used (#1,#2)
  • Humans hunt and gather and follow the herds/seasons to keep close to a food source.
  • With civilization, no need to move/wander with the seasons food can be found in distant places and brought to you. (first intro to inactivity)
  • Now, average produce travels 2000 miles before you purchase it-and it still looks shiny and fresh! (just like Joan Rivers)
the body s own detox plan
The Body’s Own Detox Plan
  • Liver- bile, cholesterol, (sterol), drug
  • Kidney- urea, major toxin (drug) path
  • Skin- secrete perspiration, electolyte
  • Lung/nose- bacteria, gas, water
  • Colon- nonfiltered particle, fiber, bact
  • Lymphatics- provider of transportation

let the body do what it knows!

4 year old hamburger-food for thought!

the saguil approach
The Saguil Approach:

The sooner it dies…

….the better it is for you!?

no preservatives….imagine bread with a shelf life of 12 minths?!!!


Oxidative Build Up

  • Inflammation
  • Overindulgence
  • Poor nutrition
  • Poor activity
  • Poor spirit +/-
what happens in oxidation
What happens in oxidation?
  • Oxidation-Reduction reaction-

thinkcleavage!!!! ;)

  • Unchecked oxidation leads to free radicals
  • Think of free radicals as energy sources but not good energy like ATP, glucose, oxygen ---think of it like radiation, heat, pain, cell wall damage, unchecked swelling, chromosome damage, defect unmasking.
  • Body can handle some but for the bulk it can’t handle, you are now exposing yourself to damaging energy……remember Hiroshima?
  • Trauma
  • Infection
  • Food –”proinflammatory food”
  • Medicine side effects
  • Poor sleep/altered healing
  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic emotional trauma/stress
inflammation it s not all bad
Inflammation-it’s not all bad
  • Inflammation is necessary for healing but..
  • To much unchecked inflammation will lead to acute pain, movement limitation, chronic pain, poor lymph and blood flow, organ and gland dysfunction, alteration of the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems…poor homeostasis
infection it s bad
Infection-it’s bad
  • I don’t like it but inevitable
  • I believe a “well oiled machine” will fight and recover quickly
  • Antibiotics and vaccinations work but have side effects that lead to more inflammation, resistance or poor homeostasis (Saguil Approach -wait 5y)
  • Herd Immunity
food and here we are
FOOD! (and here we are!)
  • Hippocrates – “Food as Medicine” +
  • 2000-2500 calories daily ok for “average” +
  • Transfats daily? (labeling says 0 for anything

< 0.5) -

  • High glycemic foods? -
  • “Empty Calorie Diets” – poor nutrition -
  • Food treated poorly- Kobe Beef, Salmon Farms, GMO’s, Hormone fed chicken and beef, antibiotic resistant animals. -

food side effects
Food Side Effects
  • Alteration of insulin, gh, glucagon, serotonin, oxytocin!!!!!!to start inflammation and damage.
  • Filling with average teen diet leads to satiety and lack of want for “mom’s home cooking”
  • Caffeine addiction and hyperstimulation/hormone prod
  • Alcohol addiction/liver congestion now and later
  • Fat in steak/pork, antibiotics in salmon, genetic virus in GMO, high hormone levels in chicken also cause poor thriving, immunity for animal
  • Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations -Poop!
food good effects
Food Good Effects
  • “Well oiled machine” -homeostasis
  • Excellent hormone cycles
  • Tolerability to stressors
  • High functioning mental capacity
  • Faster wound healing
  • “Killer” immune system
  • Great sex, sleep, productivity (Moses) and spirit………
homeostasis broken down
……homeostasis broken down
  • If the cell is bathed in oxytocin, serotonin it will want to function at it’s peak
  • Parasympathetic system is the rest, digest, love system-Maximize on this!
  • (Sympathetic is necessary but not for 8 hours a day- maybe just 3 times a year)

--Allow a cell to function and give it a healthy environment and it will fix itself- “See how nature would do it” -Andy Weil

concept changes in food
Concept changes in food
  • 1973 “Imitation Food” erased from labels
  • 1977 Eat less red meat –Sen. Mcgovern

…. now all was a calorie, %, portion, carb, protein or a fat. Industry took off from then, consumers got unhealthy with the new idea of food, no longer for community -(filipino plate at the door habit), ritual, culture, pleasure, identity. Micheal Pollan

the western diet
The Western Diet
  • Refined grain (no bran, no germ, lasts long +GI)
  • Pure sugar
  • Red meat
  • Processed meats
  • Little whole grains
  • Little fresh fruits and vegetables

fast food diet=national eating disorder

diseases associated with wd in other countries
Diseases associated with WD in other countries
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes

killers in the us cdc gov
Killers in the US
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Stroke (CVD)
  • Chronic lower resp diseases
  • Accidents
  • Alzheimers
  • Diabetes
lyon diet heart study
Lyon Diet Heart Study:
  • The type of diet described by the Healthy Eating Pyramid really does seem to be healthier than the currently conventional Western diet since a Mediterranean diet similar to the Healthy Eating Pyramid was trialed in the Lyon Diet Heart Study. This French study20 of patients who had survived a heart attack had to be stopped early after just two and a half years because the trial diet was so effective compared to the control diet (a mildly modified Western diet). All-cause death was 70% lower in the trial group than in the control group.

Fight the Killers with Fads? No, just for looks
  • The ZONE: On the plus side, The ZONE encourages people to exercise, drink lots of water, and limit carbohydrates while balancing proteins and fat. It distinguishes between good and bad fats and better and worse carbohydrates. However, I do not like its suggestion that food should be regarded as a drug to manipulate your hormones and metabolism - that is not a healthy attitude toward food and eating. Overall, however, the ZONE is one of the better diets out there for healthy weight loss.
  • The Perricone Diet: Touted as "the wrinkle cure," this diet, devised by a dermatologist, holds that eating high-quality animal protein (excluding red meat) as well as healthy fats, lots of fresh berries and pure-water will reduce inflammatory changes in the body and thereby prevent wrinkles. These recommendations are good, but there is no scientific evidence that any eating plan can prevent or eliminate wrinkles. Also, Dr. Perricone tells you to eat an immoderate amount of salmon and fails to warn about the dangers of farmed salmon.
  • The Ornish Diet: Mainly a very low-fat, vegetarian plan, this diet, in combination with group support, stress reduction, and moderate exercise, was devised to halt (even reverse) coronary heart disease. In my view the emphasis on very low-fat intake is obsolete and fails to take note of the important distinction between high and low glycemic-load carbohydrate foods. Most people not facing invasive cardiac procedures will not have the motivation to stick with this restrictive diet.
  • The South Beach Diet: Devised by a noted cardiologist, this diet requires you to eliminate carbohydrates for two weeks and then add back specific, low glycemic-load carbs. Its weaknesses are that you don\'t count calories or control portion size, exercise isn\'t addressed, and I think there is too much emphasis on meat. The underlying assumption is that if you\'re overweight, you must be insulin resistant, which isn\'t true for everyone.
  • The Atkins Diet: Here you also eliminate most carbs and don\'t count calories. My major objection to this one is its failure to distinguish between good and bad fats (olive oil and other monounsaturates being the good ones and saturated and polyunsaturates the unhealthy ones). Similarly, there isn\'t enough emphasis on fiber, vitamins and minerals, all of which are important in disease prevention. If you\'re on Atkins, you miss out on health-protective phytochemicals found in fruits and many vegetables and don\'t learn to differentiate between healthy low glycemic-load carbs and less healthy high-glycemic load ones. Some studies have shown that short-term use of the Atkins diet is safe and effective for healthy weight loss. Many physicians are concerned about long-term health risks.
diets that have lasted
Diets that have lasted:
  • Paleolithic….just kidding, no f & v
  • Japanese diet –seasonality, high fish, high plant land and sea, presentation
  • Mediterranean diet –low meat, high plant, high monosat fats, wide variety, grain
  • Vegan/vegetarian/raw –B12, iron, fats

labor intensive but healthy

  • Vegan -no meat,dairy,processed,egg
  • Raw Vegan –unprocessed veg, not >115
  • Lacto Vegetarian –dairy ok, no eggs
  • Lacto-ovo vegetarian -dairy egg ok
  • Flexitarian/semi-vegetarian
  • Pescatarian all meats but fish ok
  • Pollo Vegetarian –poultry ok (chik,turk,du)
the ornish program
The Ornish Program
  • Plant based diet (vegetarian diet)
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Group support

-Dr Dean Ornish has published studies showing that a low-fat (10% fat) vegetarian diet resulted in a 60% reduction in adverse cardiac events in patients with moderate to severe coronary heart disease - and soon prostate cancer!

-approved by Medicare last summer! Hopefully the shape of things to come!

the 21 day wellness program
The 21 day Wellness Program
  • Red meat, pork and chicken (fish allowed)
  • Wheat and Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Dairy products (eggs allowed)
  • Yoga (movement) and Meditation(this is why it works!)
draw backs
Draw backs:
  • The headaches and insomnia that will come from body not getting it’s “fix”:

-caffeine, hi GI foods, taste association, courage in a bottle, saturated fat-butta and grissle, high sugar, low fiber, extra cash for cool clothes by buying “#7 family value pack!”

-WARNING, you will spend more money since healthy eating, movement and spirituality is not covered by insurance

-luckily bypass, back surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, post stroke therapy, chronic rehabilitation and life long prescriptions are covered by insurance!!YEAH, HOORAY!

  • Weight loss from mindful eating
  • Decreased pro-inflammatory foods (spark)
  • Liberated energy from the gi tract
  • More room for good foods (color,fiber,oil)
  • Less bloating, more physical movement, better breathing, more colonic movement, less stagnation, more meridia/chakra flow
  • Better mentation, happier cells, better dna
  • -The incorporation of a healing tradition from 5000 years old to modern day medical practice. It sets a framework to allow the physical body unrestricted utilization of energy. It allows the mind a calming technique to champion especially in times of stress. When both body and mind are allowed to function with unlimited expression, health and happiness are experienced and love is found.

Enrique Saguil

then comes the yoga part
..then comes the yoga part!
  • Movement -(not necessar-ily flexibility)
  • Breath control -(stress reduction, oxygen, 355 cutoff, internal massage)
  • Mindful clarity –(“stillness doesn’t mean not moving”), CELLS WORK BETTER!!
  • Herb Benson found meditation could control blood pressure, heart rate, respiration temperature……AND GENE EXPRESSION!!

-john doulliard

  • Vata dry/cold/nervous winter (build/store/rejuvenate with; warm soups and stews, ,oils, dairy, cheese, beets, carrots, sweet potatoes (high fat and protein), heavy grains (brown rice or wheat), avocados (high fat fruit), bananas, nuts-(insulating foods)

-nuts are very acidic and the more eaten, the more the body changes pH and converts to store to fats, proteins minerals and vitamins (fight or flight)

-eat in season! Go local farmer or organic!

John Douliard

  • Kapha rainy/muddy/heavy spring
  • Need foods to detoxify the body and open the lymphatic channels from the winter acidity-Leafy greens, sprouts (chlorophyll), berries, beans, green pepper, grapefruit, ginger (roots) foods that alkalinize and allow lymph to move, low fat foods.
  • Natures new year, need to move waste to prepare for rest of year

-eat in season! Go local farmer or organic!

John Douliard

  • Pitta hot/inflammed
  • During summer, long days and short nights and need energy foods, asparagus, cucumber, cantelope, celery, salads, fruits and veggies-plums, pears, grapes, high carb.
  • Cooling harvest need to detoxify (around fall) the excess heat to prepare for winter; leafy greens, apples, plums, grapes, pomegranates

-eat in season! Go local farmer or organic!
