Addressing Inflammation

In the holistic health world, inflammation has been recognized as the universal underlying factor in many conditions – restlessness/anxiety, post-nasal drip, aches and pains, skin issues, gut issues, arthritis, heart disease, etc. Induced by dietary and lifestyle choices along with stress and ensuing imbalances, inflammation can be directly addressed with a handful of tweaks and the right supplements. Radically uplevel your health and wellbeing with this one-hour session.

Guided and Supported Elimination Diet

Do you suspect you may have food allergies or sensitivities? Your own body is the best laboratory for finding out. And an elimination diet is the way to do it. In this guided one-month program, you will spend 21 days eliminating the most common food triggers and 9 days beginning to reintroduce these trigger foods one-by-one to see what you react to. The sequence is important. Results tend to be vivid and crystal clear.

San Miguel rate: $3000 pesos or $150 USD (U.S. rate is $340 USD)   6 sessions (several of these may be phone check-ins)


Natural Bone Health: Prevent or Reverse Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

Causes of Bone Loss and the Solution

Unprecedented stress, nutrient imbalances, endocrine imbalances, compromised digestion, commonly prescribed medications and environmental toxins of modern life can deplete our bone reserves, resulting in a diagnosis of osteopenia or osteoporosis.

In most cases, a diet rich in alkalinizing whole foods, the right balance of protein, healthy essential fats, minerals and micro-nutrients coupled with a few choice bone building supplements and the right physical activity, will successfully restore bone health. Underlying causes must be considered and addressed when appropriate.

Whether you want to maintain healthy bones or are already diagnosed with osteopenia or osteoporosis, your bone health can be preserved or restored and you can have strong, healthy bones that last a lifetime, naturally!

Let's work together to create your unique path to a bone-healthy way of life!

Your personal program looks at:

  • What constitutes bone health

  • DEXA-scan and other diagnostics

  • Calcium’s role

  • Vitamin D and other co-factors necessary for bone health

  • Viable alternatives to Fosomax, Actonel, Boniva and Reclast, the bisphosphonate medications frequently prescribed for osteopenia and early osteoporosis and now associated by the FDA and American Academy of Periodontology with spontaneous femur fracture and osteonecrosis of the jaw.

  • Key nutritional and lifestyle strategies to preserve or restore bone health

  • Other strategies to improve bone health

San Miguel rate: $800 pesos or $40 USD (U.S. rate $125) for a 90-minute session, including handout packet


Private Cleanse Programs

I have facilitated private and group cleanse programs for the past 10 years. This season in San Miguel I’ll be offering private cleanse programs or programs for you and a friend or family member together.

A seasonal cleanse is wonderful for body, mind and spirit. With the help of a cleanse, you can let go of long-standing habits that are not supporting you and develop new and healthier ones. Hard to break eating patterns frequently fade away. A cleanse helps to reveal exactly which foods you’ve been reacting to so you can resolve previously hidden food sensitivities.

By decreasing inflammation and resetting the body's metabolism, you may lose 5-20 pounds plus inches. Various physical, mental and emotional symptoms may disappear or diminish – including sugar and carbohydrate cravings, blood sugar imbalances, digestive complaints, constipation, headaches, arthritis, aches and pains, fatigue, skin issues, mental fog, irritability, insomnia and anxiety.

Your personal cleanse is designed to help you shed toxins, balance hormones, decrease inflammation, and improve organ function while nourishing and balancing yourself and improving overall wellness. 

Once we discuss your health history and your goals, we can customize a cleanse for you and your individual needs. Every cleanse program will include regular check-ins to keep you on track and support your process.

Mild or moderate cleanse protocols, depending on your previous experience and needs

2, 3 or 4 week programs

San Miguel rate: $2040-$3055 pesos or $100-150 USD, depending on your program. (U.S. rate $180-$320) In-person, by phone or Skype
