Hello and welcome to the Medical Medium Blog: HEALTH ARTICLES! I'm so happy to have you here. Visit this blog anytime for inspiration and valuable insights on foods that will help you to heal and feel your best. Happy reading!
If you have a chronic illness or symptom such as acne, eczema, headaches, reproductive issues, bloating, anxiety, IBS, weight gain, SIBO, or any other symptom or condition, or you simply want to have the best health possible in the future, it’s important to avoid common food chemicals that can exacerbate symptoms. I talk about these food chemicals in Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune and share how you can cleanse to remove them from your body.
If you wish to heal, I recommend limiting or altogether avoiding the following:
* Aspartame and other artificial sweeteners
* Citric acid
* Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
* Natural and artificial flavors
* Nutritional yeast
Many people are sensitive to these ingredients, and while some of them can seem fun in the moment, their effects on our physical and emotional well-being aren’t so enjoyable. I share exactly how you can cleanse your body of these food chemicals in Cleanse To Heal.
Aspartame and other Artificial Sweeteners
You’ll find this in diet sodas as well as hidden in flavoring. Aspartame goes into the liver’s deep, inner core and is unique in the way it’s stored in the liver—it tends to injure small blood vessels inside the liver, causing them to atrophy or shrink. Other artificial sweeteners are also highly toxic to the liver.
Citric acid is very irritating to the linings of the stomach and the intestinal tract, so it can create a lot of inflammation and discomfort if you’re sensitive to it. Citric acid (the additive) is not the same thing as naturally occurring acid in citrus. Try not to confuse the two. Citrus itself is a healing food. The isolated ingredient citric acid, however, is often corn derived. Especially if you’re experiencing any kind of stomach pain, keep an eye out for citric acid on ingredient labels and consider skipping foods that include it.
Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
MSG typically builds up in your brain, going deep into your brain tissue. It can then cause inflammation and swelling, kill thousands of your brain cells, disrupt electrical impulses, weaken neurotransmitters, burn out neurons, make you feel confused and anxious, and even lead to micro-strokes. It also weakens and injures your central nervous system. MSG is especially harmful if you have an illness that involves your brain or central nervous system. However, there are no circumstances under which it’s good for you. As a result, this is an additive you should always avoid.
The following terms usually mean that MSG is an ingredient: glutamate, hydrolyzed, autolyzed, protease, carrageenan, maltodextrin, sodium caseinate, balsamic vinegar, barley malt, malt extract, yeast extract, brewer’s yeast, corn starch, wheat starch, modified food starch, gelatin, textured protein, whey protein, soy protein, soy sauce, broth, bouillon, stock, and seasoning.
Natural and Artificial Flavors
Any ingredient with a name like natural flavoring is hidden MSG. Natural cherry flavor, natural orange flavor, natural lemon flavor, natural fruit flavor..they’re not just fruit extracts. The same goes for smoke flavor, turkey flavor, beef flavor, natural peppermint flavor, natural maple flavor, natural chocolate flavor, natural vanilla flavor, and so on. (Although pure vanilla extract is safe to use.) Each type of natural flavor potentially contains multiple biohazards and chemical compounds.
Artificial flavors can represent any of thousands of chemicals that were birthed in a lab. Don’t take risks by consuming them.
Nutritional yeast is an MSG-contaminated ingredient—there’s a reason why it’s so addictive, with people pouring it on to flavor countless foods. It also has the potential to be an irritant to the digestive system and feed bugs such as unproductive bacteria.
If you’re already anti-preservative and take care to buy foods that don’t list them in the ingredients, it doesn’t mean they’re not sneaking into your food. Accountability is reckless as far as preservative labeling goes. Not to mention that there were all those years before you became aware, so your liver had plenty of time to collect different varieties of chemically created preservatives. Your liver could be holding on to preservatives from hot dogs you ate decades ago, cotton candy from a fair, a milkshake with imitation fruit flavoring, a purple ice cone…the list is never-ending.
Alcohol is extremely hard on the liver, causing it to become sluggish and stagnant and injuring liver cells. When someone drinks, it hinders the liver’s ability to acknowledge, decipher, extract, and retain the vitamins, minerals, and other helpful materials that are also coming in through the blood. It slows down the liver’s ability to run its over 2,000 chemical functions for the body. (Don’t let this stop you from using hand sanitizer with alcohol in it. Killing off the flu virus or strep from a public bathroom or other germy spot outweighs what your liver’s going to receive from that sanitizing wipe.)
In the case of herbal tinctures, actively seek out alcohol-free versions (avoid the word ethanol, too). You can also refer to my supplement directory of preferred supplements. I don’t sell supplements or own a supplement company; I simply maintain a directory of high-quality supplements to help you.
You can be exposed to this troublemaker from so many sources, everywhere from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals to carpets to food. It does what alcohol does to the liver, only much more extreme. It’s also a viral fuel.

"When it comes to information about food, there’s a lot of fluff out there. We could even call it smog. That smog is designed to keep people occupied and to obscure the truth—and the food wars are part of that smog."
There are food wars that are raging in our culture today that can distract and deter you from healing. I share the truth about these food wars in Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune. To truly recover from chronic symptoms, conditions, and illnesses, you have to know what's really behind them, along with the steps needed to heal the root causes. These are the fundamental truths you need for healing. The food wars only get in the way of your opportunity to heal.
As I share in Cleanse to Heal, "By “food wars” I mean arguments between opposed food belief systems. You know the type I mean: the claims that this way of eating is better or even morally superior, while that way of eating is silly or ignorant, all of it rooted in guesswork and ideology, not truth. These battles often get in the way of conversations about cleansing. If we’re kept busy with resentment toward another group, if we’re distracted standing up for our own philosophy while trying to discredit the other side, we’ll miss out on what’s really happening inside the body, and we’ll never take the time to seek out answers.
The most vocal in the food wars are the people who feel the least sick. They’re the ones who have the stamina to fight about plant versus animal protein and whole grain versus grain free and removing fruit or allowing only low-glycemic fruit—and have the stamina to attack anyone who doesn’t fall into their own belief system. In support of their claims, they tend to spout scientific research studies paid for by sources with vested interests in the outcomes, because they are out of touch with the person who’s been to 20 doctors and is still lying in bed with no answers about why they’re sick. Perhaps they’ve experienced small inconsistencies with their health—they’ve had a little less energy here or there, faced mild acne or eczema, dealt with drawn-out rebound times from workouts, maybe had a cold or cough that stuck around a little too long, or dealt with bloating or a minor digestive issue, so they had to go on a round of antibiotics, any of which can get someone thinking about eating better. Somewhere along the way in their diet research process, they became staunch supporters of a belief system, enough to take up the cause and attack the other side.
Meanwhile, all sides in the food wars are still sick. What the arguments ignore is that millions are still struggling, whether from thyroid disorders, ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), eczema, psoriasis, acne, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), fibroids, crippling anxiety or depression, or any of hundreds of other diagnoses or non-diagnoses. Just like in any war on this planet, the smog of battle distracts from the suffering of those who don’t have the strength to fight."
In Cleanse to Heal, I then share critical truths that will help you heal and stay above the sea of confusion and misinformation that could hold you back from healing.
• Balanced diet
• Food combining
• Food cravings
• Bulking and cutting
• Intuitive eating
• Animal versus plant protein
• Peer pressure and discouragement about your diet from others
• And more
I am sharing this information with you here and more in Cleanse to Heal to help protect you and equip you with the knowledge and wisdom that will enable you to make the best decisions for your health and the health of your family and loved ones.
Cleanse to Heal provides you with the true causes of almost 200 symptoms and conditions, including acne, bloating, weight gain, thyroid problems, insomnia, lupus, MS, eczema, psoriasis, PCOS, endometriosis, cysts, tumors, migraines, and many more. I also provide detailed guidance on how you can heal. As I share in Cleanse To Heal, "Spirit of Compassion has always said to me throughout the years of helping so many people heal that knowing the true cause of why you’re sick is half the battle won. Knowing what to do, what to take, and how to apply those tools is the other half the battle won.”

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune I share with you seven different options for cleanses that will help you begin healing by addressing the undiscovered root causes of thousands of different health conditions and symptoms. One of these cleanses is the Medical Medium Morning Cleanse.
"When we bombard our liver with the wrong food and liquid choices every morning, we unknowingly take away our liver’s critical morning routine of ridding toxins. We compromise the very essence of our health and well-being. The consequences are far more serious than missing morning meditation or toothbrushing or exercise or phone time—or avoidance of your phone, if that’s part of your routine. Our liver, other organs, lymphatic system, and bloodstream cannot cleanse or detox the troublemakers they’re trying to discard when we don’t let them."
It's these troublemakers (specifically pathogens and toxins) your body is trying to remove in the morning that are the cause of chronic illness, symptoms, and conditions. These pathogens and toxins are stored in your liver and elsewhere in the body too. Even if you have been given a diagnosis such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and told it's an autoimmune condition and your body is attacking itself, the truth is that it's still pathogens and toxins that are responsible for your symptoms and conditions. Your body never attacks itself. You can read about this truth in Cleanse to Heal.
As a result of radical fats in our morning food and drinks, our liver overworks itself, creating an overload of bile to break down those fats. If we ate a dinner that was high in fat the night before, our liver was already struggling to process it while we were sleeping. That’s on top of our liver working hard overnight to gather up and package poisons and toxins so they could be eliminated come morning.
Every day that we bring fats into our morning with our early meals, we prevent our body from completing its natural detox routine. On the other hand, every morning we work with our body by getting properly hydrated and keeping out radical fats, we guide ourselves toward healing. That’s the purpose of the Morning Cleanse." - Excerpt from Cleanse to Heal
In Cleanse To Heal, I give you an in-depth understanding of how the Morning Cleanse works, exactly how to do it and what not to do to ensure it's effective, and countless other critical tips and an abundance of healing wisdom for anyone wanting to heal with the Morning Cleanse or any of the other cleanses or information inside the book. Below I am giving you a quick overview into some of the key elements of the Morning Cleanse but please take note that it's essential to read at least the full chapter on the Morning Cleanse in the book so you can be sure you are doing it correctly and getting the benefit from the time and effort you put into it.
Medical Medium Morning Cleanse
In the Morning:
What to consume:
1. Drink 16 to 32 ounces of lemon or lime water upon waking.
Wait 15 to 30 minutes
2. Drink 16 to 32oz fresh celery juice on empty stomach
Wait 15 to 30 minutes
3. Fresh fruit breakfast (best choice) OR steamed potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, winter squash, millet, or oatmeal
4. Drink at least 16oz of water or coconut water
• Radical fats (oils, chicken, eggs, bacon, milk, yogurt, nut butter, oil, avocado, etc)
• Dried fruits
• Try to skip troublemaker foods all morning or day (refer to Cleanse to Heal for the list of troublemaker foods to avoid for best results).
In Cleanse To Heal you'll also find detailed guidance on how to pick the right cleanse option for you from the different cleanses, when to user the Morning Cleanse versus another cleanse, for how long, and much more information about how to make the Morning Cleanse work for you. Cleanse To Heal holds healing information and wisdom for anyone who is living with a chronic symptom or condition of any kind, or anyone who wishes to safeguard and protect their health for the future. The truth is that we are all exposed to the troublemakers that cause sickness in one way or another today, so knowing how to protect and take care of our bodies has never been more important. I wrote Cleanse to Heal so you would have the answers you need by your side.

Intermittent fasting has become a popular practice in recent years, but you might be surprised to learn that there are downsides that can have a big impact on your health in the future. In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune, I share with you the truth about intermittent fasting, including the good, the bad, and the unexpected. Below I am sharing with you a small excerpt from my chapter in intermittent Fasting in Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal to give you a window into why it is problematic and what you can expect to discover in Cleanse To Heal.
"Intermittent fasting is a temporary BandAid that can support someone short term if they’re not sick. We shouldn’t see it as anything beyond short-term support for not-so-sick people, though—and even for those people, to get any of the positives, it needs to be done correctly. If you’re an intermittent faster and you’ve come across this chapter, I’m going to offer you tips so that you can still do your intermittent fasting with the least consequences down the road for your body. It’s best to eventually graduate out of intermittent fasting into one of the cleanses inside this book.
When you’re sick and trying to recover from a chronic illness or symptom that’s impeding your life, intermittent fasting will not give you the long-term relief you need; it can only hinder you, possibly even worsening your illness or condition. While I know so many people are into intermittent fasting, you shouldn’t incorporate it into the 3:6:9 Cleanse, which is specifically geared to cleanse the body. Intermittent fasting does not translate to cleansing. What is someone eating on the other side of an intermittent fast? What’s going on with their health? There are complexities here that make it unwise to combine intermittent fasting with the 3:6:9 Cleanse or any other cleanse in this book.
If you’re still looking for an intermittent fasting option, you’ll find a technique at the end of Chapter 16, “Morning Cleanse,” that you can try separately from the 3:6:9 Cleanse. Keep in mind that when you’re intermittent “fasting,” you’re never truly fasting. Not until you go 24 hours without food or beverages other than water can you call anything a fast. The body doesn’t start its fasting process until the sun has risen twice. So if you’re withholding foods in the morning or for most of the day and you eat a meal before 24 hours have passed, or you drink black coffee or even squeeze lemon into your water within those 24 hours, you stop the process of fasting from beginning. (That’s not to say you should be fasting instead. While water fasting has its time and place, it should be done only with great care and in special circumstances.) Point is, the name of this technique is flawed to begin with, which showcases that the “experts” in intermittent fasting are unaware of how the body’s processes really work."
This is just a small excerpt about intermittent fasting from Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal. There is so much more to learn about it so that you have every opportunity to heal. With the truth about intermittent fasting in your hands, you can make your own choices from a place of empowerment, awareness, and knowledge because you now have answers to why you are sick in the first place or have unwanted weight gain and digestive issues, which is most likely why you started your intermittent fasting journey to begin with. The goal is to not suffer later on down the road because you fell into a guessing game with your health. Cleanse To Heal is about offering you a choice by empowering you with answers.
Some more topics I cover in the Intermittent Fasting chapter in Cleanse to Heal include:
• Why some people like intermittent fasting and why they might see some results.
• The caffeine mistake people make while intermittent fasting that affects their health in multiple ways, including later in life.
• Why prolonged intermittent fasting can be a recipe for burnout, hair loss, aging skin, sluggish liver, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and other symptoms and conditions later in life.
• And more.
I also provide intermittent fasting enthusiasts who wish to continue this practice a way to safeguard their health against the negative impacts of intermittent fasting done in the way that has been popularized in our culture today. The option I offer for intermittent fasting enthusiasts will offer you freedom that can lead to lasting health benefits that are not temporary, short-sighted, or will come back to bite you later with symptoms and conditions.
In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I share much more healing information beyond intermittent fasting, including the truth about the pathogens and toxins that are responsible for chronic illnesses and symptoms, what’s going on inside the body that causes symptoms and conditions to develop, as well as giving you a blueprint for cleansing and healing. You will discover how to cleanse your body of pathogens and toxins, strengthen your immune system and other body systems, provide your body with the hydration and nutrients it needs, heal emotionally and spiritually, and much more so you can experience all the benefits proper cleansing has to offer. You'll also get over 70 healing recipes to help you heal while enjoying delicious foods. Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal is a companion book for you and your family that you can come back to over and over. My prayer is that it will be a loving friend by your side for all the years ahead.

In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune, I share with you the troublemakers–pathogens and toxins–that are behind the epidemic of chronic illness and symptoms we are experiencing on this planet today. Today I am sharing with you some insights into one of these sneaky troublemakers that can make us sick: radiation. Below you will read some excerpts from Cleanse to Heal on radiation, which is one troublemaker that is often ignored or denied because it can't be seen. It's vital to know what we are up against on this planet and what the true causes of symptoms and conditions are and how to address them so you can heal. This all comes down to first having the truth in your hands, which is what Cleanse To Heal offers you.
"No one wants to age quickly—to get gray hair faster or wrinkled skin or degenerative bone diseases. No one wants to shrink and lose their height. No one wants their fingernails and toenails to lose their vitality and color. No one wants their teeth to discolor and decay or their eyes to glaze over with cataracts or degenerative retina disease to develop. We simply don’t want to age; we’re always talking about anti-aging and never talking about the radiation exposure that contributes to it. Radiation speeds up the aging process rapidly. It causes much faster deterioration of cell tissue; vitality gets sucked out of every cell exposed to radiation. While the body’s cells are always renewing, radiation doesn’t just disappear. We need to work on actively ridding it with the 3:6:9 Cleanse and the Heavy Metal Detox. (The Heavy Metal Detox addresses radiation at the same time as toxic heavy metals.) Otherwise, radiation within us has a shelf life that outlasts our body. When we’re in our grave, hundreds and hundreds of years after we’ve died, we’re still radiating.
Radiation also lowers the immune system. It’s critical to keep our immune system strong so we can fight the pathogens and battle the toxins that we come up against every day. When we fly, we already get a tremendous amount of radiation exposure. There’s still nuclear fallout floating in the sky, for one, from tragedies such as Fukushima, Hiroshima, and Chernobyl, and there’s more of it up high. For another, everybody on the plane has just been through scanners and placed their scanned luggage in the overhead bins, concentrating all that radiation directly over our heads, which gives us extra radiation exposure. With all of this—on top of the radiation exposure we get from sources other than flying, such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, devices such as cell phones, and even food and water—if we can take a step to protect our health, well-being, and vitality, it’s worth taking."
You might be surprised to hear that MRIs are a source of radiation exposure. The industry doesn’t tell us that there is a specific form of radiation that comes from MRI’s that’s different from the radiation emitted by X-rays and CT scans. Also, MRIs are often performed in the same medical center or area of a medical establishment where X-rays and CT scans are performed. This means you can inadvertently get some additional radiation exposure when you go for your MRI just by being in the same area where these services are offered. You can be sitting in the waiting room or lounge at your medical center and be exposed to dozens of people who are carrying radiation from having X-rays or CT scans in that same center. In addition, many people who get MRIs have already received X-rays or CT scans very recently, which means you can be exposed to the radiation they are carrying in them into the medical center. Again, we can’t avoid all exposure to radiation, which is why knowing how to remove it from your body with the information in Cleanse To Heal is so empowering.
"Here’s an unknown source of radiation: luggage that’s been through airport security. When your bags go through the scanners that allow agents to analyze their contents, the bags collect radiation that stays on them for years—centuries, even. The next time your knapsack or tote or briefcase goes through the scanner, it collects more radiation, and that accrues and accrues and accrues with every trip. Airport security is using more radiation than ever before right now. Every year, it increases. As a result, we should be discarding our carry-on bags every three trips. The checked bag scanning process tends to emit less radiation, so you can discard checked bags less often, more like every six trips. (And those are one-way trips, by the way. Round trips count as two trips.)
Now, I know this isn’t welcome information. I know it sounds drastic and jarring, especially with the popularity of expensive luggage and in this age of reuse. Can I afford to buy a new bag every few trips? Isn’t it wasteful? you may be asking yourself, and rightfully so. The bigger question is, can you afford not to? Especially if you have babies or children who spend any time near your luggage that’s been on multiple flights, can you afford to expose them? (More on protecting little ones in a moment.)
We also need to think about where we’re storing our luggage between trips, especially if we have little ones. When there are children in the house or we’re chronically ill, we need to be most mindful about not keeping well-traveled bags nearby. What if you’re using your child’s bedroom closet to store the family carry-ons that have been on five, six, or seven trips? What if you sleep four feet away from the backpack you’ve taken on 10 flights and it’s radiating there, right next to you, every night? These are questions to consider. If you have kids, do whatever you can to change luggage regularly. Be particularly careful about letting babies near bags that have been on a flight with you. If you don’t have children in the home and you can’t afford new bags, stow them as far from where you spend time in the home as possible.
What about the items that were in the luggage when it went through airport security? It’s really the largest item that collects the most radiation, and that item is the piece of baggage itself. Computers, phones, and clothing are smaller, and we store them separately and spread out when we’re not flying. That is, we don’t usually keep an exact set of shirts, pants, and sweaters from a trip shut together in one drawer, where all the radiation it picked up will be concentrated. These smaller items tend to be replaced more often than luggage too; we cycle through them, so this doesn’t need to be a big source of worry. Same with snacks you might have packed in your carry-on to eat while traveling. When we eat food that’s been through the scanner, yes, we’ll get a small dose of radiation. Food sold at the airport has been scanned too, though. You may need to eat while traveling, and you especially need to drink liquids, so go ahead and pack your snacks, drink your water, and plan to take care of yourself with cleansing steps such as the Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie afterward.
This is what I mean about living our lives. Some exposures we can’t avoid. Some, like luggage, we can limit. Either way, it helps to be aware. Then we can make smart choices, such as choosing a more economical bag next time you purchase luggage so you won’t mind letting it go before long, and sparing your kids from sleeping next to radiating carry-ons. If you’re concerned about the waste aspect of discarding your travel bags over time, think about the waste aspect of becoming ill and hospitalized—and the costs that occur on all levels of life when that happens.
Now, it’s possible that someday, radiation at airport security will get more attention. If it does, be prepared to hear experts say that the radiation levels that luggage picks up, if detectable, are safe for the body. That won’t mean the radiation really is safe—it’s like telling us mercury fillings are safe. Sometimes tools and knowledge are behind the times. Hold on to what you’ve discovered about the truth here."
In Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal, I give you advanced information about what’s going on inside the body that causes symptoms and conditions to develop, as well as giving you a blueprint for cleansing and healing. You will discover how to cleanse your body of the pathogens and toxins responsible for illness (including radiation), strengthen your immune system and other body systems, provide your body with the hydration and nutrients it needs, heal emotionally and spiritually, and much more so you can experience all the benefits proper cleansing has to offer. Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal was written to stand alongside you as a compassionate friend and guide as you make the choices that are best for you and your family's health.

Below I am sharing an important message for anyone who is wanting to heal or trying to heal. This message is an excerpt from Part V of Medical Medium Cleanse to Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.
"Bullying: you don’t deserve it. Whatever you’ve been through, whatever haters you’ve faced in life, whoever tried to hold you back from doing good: you did not deserve it. Maybe you had to suffer through it because it wasn’t safe to speak up. Maybe you never got to say or do what you wished you could have. Maybe it was only years later that you got validation for calling out a situation that was not okay. Maybe you saved someone with your voice. Maybe you saved yourself. Somehow, you lived through it. You’re still here. And with the life ahead of you, you can choose to be part of a powerful healing movement.
We all know that bullying doesn’t stop when we grow up. The health realm is one area where that’s abundantly clear. It can happen when someone spreads advanced information about healing, it can happen when someone sets out to heal using that information, and it can even happen when someone actually heals. Who would bully a person who has been through debilitating exhaustion and maddening pain, and has finally found a way to feel alive again? Plenty of people, I’m sorry to say. A long history of doubt and shame stretches behind us when it comes to suffering and well-being—especially when it comes to women’s suffering and well-being. With the rise of social media, it has become easier to target those brave enough to share their stories. At the exact same time, mercifully, it’s become easier for people who are struggling with chronic health issues to find resources and find each other.
Critical thinking: we need this in our confused world. Haters: we don’t. Critics want to learn. They educate themselves on what they’re critiquing and aim to leave personal opinion out of it, which creates room for them to change their minds. Haters cast their votes with no intention to change. The bullying this leads to is not the way it’s supposed to be. Still, we must find a way to cope and stay grounded in its presence, to offer information in the face of hate and also offer compassion in the face of ill will. Above all, we must save ourselves.
Life can be so hard. When people are in pain emotionally, and sometimes even physically, because of the injuries they’ve experienced in life, a portion of them become haters. Out of their suffering, they adopt hatred. Yes, we have to have some compassion for these people. At the same time, we need to realize that there are a lot of other people out there in the world who have been injured by emotional or physical suffering, and they would never become hateful against others. They would never bully anyone or try to tear them down. We can’t give forgiveness and allowance to every hater to the point of disrespecting the ones who would never be harmful or hurtful to others, even in the midst of their worst suffering. If we don’t understand the distinction here between haters trapped in darkness and pain who want to pull others into their nightmare and people who are suffering who only wish for the alleviation of others’ suffering, we’re letting the haters off the hook. Yes, we have to have compassion. We can’t go so far with it that we injure ourselves. If we believe everybody is good, we’re going to believe we’re doing something wrong in the end. If we don’t realize that there are haters who could hurt us in our healing process, then it will hit us in our core of self-worth and self-doubt when we’re struggling and trying to heal. Darkness works in this way. Good people tend to give themselves their own lashings and punish themselves when they didn’t even do anything wrong. If we don’t come to the realization that there are certain people who dwell in hatred and keep light from entering their heart and soul, we could get hurt even more along the way, and that could be detrimental to the healing process. You can protect yourself, knowing that you are a good person and it’s not your fault and you didn’t do anything wrong to deserve your pain.
We’re taught that everyone is inherently good in this world. My job is to tell you the truth so you can protect yourself. If we believe naïvely that everyone is looking out for our best interest, then the haters can cause harm to our soul and physical body in many ways. That doesn’t mean that all haters are hopeless. A miraculous event can change a person. There is always hope that a reversal can occur, where light and goodness can enter a person’s heart and awaken them. Still, how much damage was caused along the way? How many people were emotionally harmed to get them to this awakening, and for how many years to come will those selfless individuals suffer for sacrificing their own well-being?
This is a message for the people who are struggling and trying to heal. This is not a message for the hater who doesn’t like or believe in the information in this book or that it has helped so many. Critics are welcome here. If you’re one of them, I know you’re a good person. This is about taking the conversation to another level, opening your eyes so that you can see past your surroundings. My job is to look out for the underdogs who have been through hell and back. There are people who have been bullied and hurt very badly, and it has scarred them. If that’s you, let these living words serve as a little lesson on haters so that you don’t get hurt by the people trying to drag you into their own pain. Think of the living words here as your anti-bullying tool kit, your refuge when that old schoolyard feeling starts to surface."

There are many common chemicals that we use or are exposed to in everyday life that wreak havoc on our health over time. Many of them are so deeply entrenched in our culture and way of life that you may have never questioned their safety or long-term health consequences. One of the most sneaky and damaging groups is what I call "Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders". This collection of toxic chemicals affects every single one of us. While we can't always avoid exposure to these chemicals outside of the home and around other people, the good news is that there's a lot we can do within the home to reduce or prevent these chemicals from surrounding us in our domestic life.
The heinous nature of these toxic chemicals we have all had exposure to in our lifetimes and usually still are exposed to regularly in one way or another–such as in offices, restaurants, doctor's offices and public spaces or when we are around other people–means that every one of us has these toxins to cleanse out of the body. These insidious toxins don't just leave the body on their own, not with the high-fat diets almost everyone has eaten for much of their life, and the pathogens and other toxins most of us have inside us. You have to know exactly how to support your body and liver in the right way so it can do the hard work of cleansing you of toxins that are deep inside your liver and cells. This is the life-saving information you will find inside the pages of Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal: Healing Plans for Sufferers of Anxiety, Depression, Acne, Eczema, Lyme, Gut Problems, Brain Fog, Weight Issues, Migraines, Bloating, Vertigo, Psoriasis, Cysts, Fatigue, PCOS, Fibroids, UTI, Endometriosis & Autoimmune.
Even if you don't think you have been exposed to toxins, chemicals or pathogens, or you aren't struggling with a symptom or condition right now, later in life your health will be affected one way or another. It's now become almost impossible to avoid developing a symptom or condition at some point in your life with all that we face on this planet. The way to avoid or minimize this, or the way to recover from symptoms or conditions you might already be living with, is to know how to properly cleanse and heal the body.
Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders are just one group of troublemakers that can make us sick. Let's take a look at the troublemakers in this group:
• Aerosol can air fresheners
• Cologne and aftershave
• Conventional cleaning products
• Conventional hair dye
• Conventional laundry detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets
• Conventional makeup
• Conventionally scented body lotions, creams, sprays, washes, and deodorants
• Conventionally scented shampoos, conditioners, gels, and other hair products
• Dry cleaning chemicals
• Nail chemicals (such as polish, remover, adhesive)
• Plug-in air fresheners
• Scented candles
• Spray tan
• Spray-bottle air fresheners and mists
• Talcum powder
Below you will find an excerpt from Medical Medium Cleanse To Heal on some of these Chemical Industry Domestic Invaders.
Air Fresheners, Scented Candles, Conventional Laundry Detergent, Fabric Softener, Perfume, Cologne, and Aftershave
"We all walk around as if it’s normal and actually good to be surrounded by synthetic chemical products meant to create pleasing smells. Who are they actually pleasing? If no one really likes the smell of cologne, neither the people who wear it nor those who interact with them, why are so many people using it? All it takes is five people wearing cologne in a room of a hundred to overpower the air.
Don’t underestimate the toxic levels of this category. Just because these products have fragrances we’ve been taught to identify as pleasing, whether inside our home or on our body, it doesn’t mean they’re safe. These are some of the most hazardous chemicals to be concerned about, creating a future of health deprivation.
We think, for example, that by using an air freshener, we’re creating a more pleasing environment. Once we unleash that plug-in air freshener, though, our sense of smell instantly becomes disabled. When you’re living in a home or working in an office or other environment with a plug-in air freshener spewing chemical-laden oil into the air, you may not smell it anymore. After plugging them into the wall, many people forget air fresheners are there and don’t notice when they’ve run out because the walls, bedding, pillows, furniture, air vents, and window shades have become so saturated. And while we become desensitized to that scent, it’s nearly impossible to smell anything else.
These chemically scented, vaporized poisons hurt the lungs—their waxy, oily residue builds up in the lung sacs. If you’re someone who doesn’t smoke and yet you love plug-in air fresheners, you’re better off removing your plug-in air freshener and starting to smoke. That’s right; you actually have a better chance of longer-lasting health and vitality without complicated diseases if you smoke cigarettes than if you breathe plug-in air fresheners day in and day out. Does that put it in perspective?
The oily film from air freshener doesn’t only affect the lungs. It also ends up in the liver when it enters the bloodstream from the lungs. Plus we swallow air freshener when we breathe it in through our mouth, and that brings it to the intestinal tract, from which it enters the bloodstream and heads to the liver as well. Air freshener residue in that organ can reduce liver function. If a really inquisitive surgeon opened up the body of a patient who had lived for years in a space highly saturated with air freshener, that surgeon would smell the air freshener scent seeping out of the patient’s blood and cells.
The chemicals in synthetic scents can lower the immune system rapidly. What does that mean? It means that when the chemicals enter our bloodstream, our natural killer cells, lymphocytes, and other white blood cells absorb them, and that instantly weakens our immune cells and even kills some off. Our white blood cells need clean, fresh, oxygenated blood; with chemical scents, our white count becomes hindered. Exposure to a heavy dosage of air freshener, scented candle, cologne, perfume, or similar scent could mean three to four days of a weakened and lowered immune system. Pathogens can take advantage with an uprising—especially because the synthetic scent chemicals can, at the same time, feed viruses and bacteria, allowing them to prosper and reproduce, leading to further illness. Someone who’s prone to urinary tract infections (UTIs), sinus infections, or flare-ups of fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, lupus, MS, eczema, psoriasis, or Hashimoto’s may experience a new flare-up following exposure.
It seems like a really neat idea to plug in a device that releases a scent that makes you think of wildflowers. In the end, they’re not real fragrances. They’re synthetic and man-made in a factory, formulated by a group of people testing scents around a laboratory table and picking the one they like best. Air fresheners sprayed from a bottle or can and scented candles are just as bad. Even if they’re called “natural fragrances,” don’t be fooled. This is the same tactic as listing “natural flavors” in a food’s ingredient list as a secret label for MSG. It’s difficult to find an enclosed space these days that’s free of chemical scent. When we move to a different home, it’s tough to find an apartment or house that doesn’t have a lingering scent in the walls. Out in the world, we’re exposed in stores, malls, hotels, restaurants, offices, friends’ and families’ homes, and public restrooms more than ever before in history. Hop in a taxi or ride service car, and you’re likely to find air freshener coming through the vents. We inhale it just from being near people who have the scent on their clothes from air fresheners at home—on top of whatever scented laundry detergent, dryer sheets, deodorant, shampoo, hair product, lotion, aftershave, cologne, or perfume they use.
We live in a world where chemical sensitivities are becoming much more prevalent. That means that these chemical exposures are not only a nightmare for the individuals already suffering with sensitivities; they’re creating new cases of chemical sensitivities for people who didn’t previously have them. Years ago, it was older people who would complain about smells, saying, “I need fresh air,” “Can you put out that fire?”, “Please shut the window,” “Close the front door; you’re letting dust in,” or “I don’t like the smell of that cologne.” They were the ones who had lived long enough to become sensitive. Now it’s not like that anymore. Younger people are developing actual chemical sensitivities at rapid rates due to all they’re exposed to, and the complaints of older generations are nothing in comparison to what the younger generations are up against.
Now, don’t let this all put you into fear and chaos. While out and about, we can do our best to take measures to avoid these scents. For example, we can choose not to walk by the perfume counter at the department store; to purchase bath, body, and laundry products that are unscented or only scented with pure essential oils; and to find an alternative to the café around the corner that burns scented candles. Because we can’t always avoid them, though— we can’t ask the person standing next to us on the train to go home, shower, and wash their clothes in unscented detergent—we at least need to make our own homes, cars, and wherever else we spend extended periods of time into oases from these scents. If we have any say at our workplaces, it’s ideal to establish scent-free policies. And of course, because we can’t dodge every exposure, cleansing is critical so that we can continually release and rebuild."
