Children Dealing with Violent Rage Posted on May 1st, 2011
If you saw Oprah’s program a few days ago about a violent 10-year-old boy who tried to kill his mother, you were probably shocked. Zach and his mother Laurie tell the harrowing tale of a boy who was consumed with rage that seemed to come out of nowhere. Zach would decimate his bedroom in a matter of minutes when he had an over-the-top tantrum. The parents devoted their entire existence to keeping his behavior under control. Their family life was in complete disarray. The boy is currently on medication and uses his own technique of visualization and “white light” to keep the negative voices away. There are many deeply disturbed people walking around. There are others who are in stages of disturbance. When I saw the pictures of Zach as a young child, I immediately knew he was milk allergic. I know what you’re saying, “That Caroline always believes that everyone is milk allergic.” But in his case, the milk allergy can turn on uncontrolled behavior. I have been closely connected with the work of Dr Doris Rapp, M.D., a pediatric allergist whose groundbreaking work with children with allergies is legendary. When you see the U Tube video of children being neutralized in Dr. Rapp’s clinic for a variety of allergens, you’ll see that this can happen to anyone. Children can have violent temper tantrums to milk, corn, dust mites, molds, food additives and chemicals among other things. These symptoms can be “turned off” by neutralizing the child for specific allergens. Zach would benefit from such treatments. As I look at the footage of Zack now, while he is stable on medication, I ask the question, “Has anyone tested him for food allergies.” You’ll be fascinated by the work of Alexander Schauss, PhD and his book, ”Diet, Crime and Delinquency” which documents the violent behavior of prison inmates when exposed to specific foods. Food allergy is a big deal. It affects memory, behavior and energy. Get your kids tested. Find out if you are poisoning them with common grocery store items – almost the biggest culprit is milk.
Martha Stewart – Larger than Life Posted on October 11th, 2010
What fun to see Martha Stewart on the Oprah Show! As usual the Domestic Diva outdoes herself with a variety of home made creations such as; honey from her own bee hives, an indoor moss garden from the “forest floor”, and a “grilled cheese” bar. Martha Stewart is large. In fact she’s larger than ever before. Standing next to Oprah, the Queen of day-time talk looked small by comparison. What is going on? Martha is a post-menopausal woman. Once menopause sets in, declining hormones and adrenal stress can contribute to galloping weight gain that seems unstoppable. In my best selling diet book; The Body Knows Diet – Cracking the Weight Loss Code, I discuss Martha Stewart and some of the strategies that she could institute to lengthen her life and resurrect her waist line. One of them is to lower carbohydrates, address Candida yeast (the cause of sugar/starch cravings) add some daily exercise and balance hormones. Martha Stewart can afford to consult with a very skilled Bio-Identical Hormone Balancing specialist – I am sure they abound in New York City. Another strategy that would almost guarantee that she retains her waistline and her energy is human growth hormone – HGH. Any good anti-aging specialist would be able to evaluate Martha’s HGH levels and prescribe the correct dose. The use of HGH almost guarantees your ideal weight and waistline. Now back to the grilled cheese bar.
Food allergies and sensitivities are another reason for weight gain. Most people are sensitive to common foods such as dairy products and glutinous grains. I suspect that Martha’s diet, not to mention the grilled cheese bar offers multiple exposures to these food culprits. Every time an offending food is ingested, fluid retention and weight gain result. If it were my grilled cheese bar, I would offer all of the condiments Martha used, but I would switch the cow-dairy cheese for a selection of goat cheese and I would use a base of 100 percent rye bread or millet and almond flour bread in place of wheat bread.
The Downside of Cheating and Deceiving Posted on October 8th, 2010
If you watched the Oprah Show today, you were probably stunned to hear one woman’s story. Bridget B. was happily married (or so she thought) to a Hollywood executive and her harrowing tale of lies and betrayal gives one pause to consider “the shadow side.” Bridget had a story-book-wedding and what seemed to be the perfect life until she discovered that she contracted HIV a few months after her honeymoon. She had only been intimate with one man – her husband. It took a while for Bridget to uncover the fact that not only was her husband having extra marital affairs – he was having them with men.
What would you do if you discovered your soul mate, the man you want to share your life—and your bed—with was sneaking out and having sex with other women – even other men? What would you do if you discovered that your spouse was engaged in cyber-sex with multiple internet partners? What would it feel like to have a sacred trust violated? How would it feel to have all your close personal relationships damaged and shattered because of the fallout of lies and deceit? These kinds of addictive behaviors are taking place in thousands of homes across the country- right now. This is called “The Shadow Side” or the dark side of the personality. The shadow or addictive side over-takes the voice of reason. The addict becomes entangled in a web of lies, deceit and cover-ups and becomes immune to integrity and what is right.
In my work as a medical intuitive, I see addictive nature played out in health related issues – high blood pressure, digestive issues, headaches and pain of all sorts. It is not possible to live a lie and have optimal health.
We all have a shadow side. We all have that “flaw” that we are working to overcome. We should all be doing our “inner growth work” to uncover our hidden facets. This is what personal development is all about. I am not a religious person but I find the Gospel of Thomas quite interesting. This gospel is considered to be a “hidden gospel” and not part of the Bible as we know it. In this specific passage, Thomas says,” Know what is in front of your face; what is hidden will be disclosed. For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed.” This is a time of planetary transformation. Everything that lies below the surface will not lie dormant forever, it will have to surface to be examined and healed. Trust your guts and your instincts. If something does not “feel right” about another person’s behavior – investigate it. Your hunches are probably correct. The Universe has a way of delivering the information that we need to know – on cue. Many lives will be saved as a result of Bridget B’s story and also many lives will be turned upside down. Do your homework. Know who you are living with.
“This hidden culture of men living a dangerous lie has ruined so many lives,” Oprah says. “It’s broken up families and put so many women at risk.”
Kirstie Alley Has Regained All the Weight Posted on May 17th, 2009
Recent show on Oprah – Kirstie Alley had regained all the weight that she’s lost in 2007.
I could have to told you so. I wrote about Kirstie in my best selling book: The Body Knows Diet – Cracking the Weight Loss Code.
In my opinion Kirstie Alley is intolerant or allergic to common foods – especially the ones she eats frequently. It doesn’t matter that she is the spokes person for a well-known weight loss center. If she consumes foods to which she is sensitive, intolerant or allergic, she WILL gain weight. Alas after she left the controlled conditions of the diet facility all her weight returned and then some.
Weight gain is related to multiple sensitivities to common foods, an overgrowth of yeast in the digestive tract hence uncontrollable cravings, high carbohydrate consumption plus imbalanced hormones. Not enough exercise is a factor too. Kristie, get with the program ~ I would love to guide you with permanent weight loss.
Dr Laura Berman on Oprah Show speaks out on teen sex Posted on April 27th, 2009
Laura Berman M.D., sex therapist and author was recently interviewed on Oprah. She suggested that teenage girls should be given vibrators following a frank discussion about sex, the female anatomy and pleasure. This suggestion was met with shock and horror with some Oprah viewers.
Good, pleasurable sex is not just an automatic “given.” It takes knowledge of what works and does not work for you. It takes a caring, loving, experienced partner and it takes time and practice.
I learned the details of sex across the kitchen table from my mother when I was six years old. It sounded pretty horrifying to me. Then I accidentally saw my father’s penis when I was nine and I was horrified. You mean, something like “that” is going to go in “there,” I thought. It was pretty puzzling if not deeply concerning at the time.
I believe that we have a whole society of people who are pretty hung up about sex. I agree with Dr. Berman that girls need to be encouraged and educated to value and appreciate sex and their bodies and not waste their precious commodity on pimply-faced youths and their gropings in washrooms and the back seats of cars.
I raised two daughters who now from all accounts have healthy sex lives. At the time when they were teenagers, one of the other mothers in our crowd told me that when her daughter turned 15 she gave her a vibrator, a book about sex and a tube of KY jelly. She told her daughter to go ahead and experiment. Looking back on it, I should have done the same with my daughters.
Sex is healthy, pleasurable and health-enhancing. Here’s to vibrators! What do you think?
