An example of Wholistic Rejuvenation™ is outlining a life style and detoxification plan to deal with chemical toxins found in the human body. An EPA study, through human biopsy, showed the wide array of toxic chemicals within each of us. The “toxic load, or “bio-accumulation” occurs when the body exceeds capacity of the organs of detoxification to reduce or neutralize toxins.
Since the end of WWII, our planet has experienced a dramatic chemical revolution. Our existence, at the cost of our health and quality of life, now depends upon thousand of synthetic chemicals used to create virtually everything in modern life – agriculture, healthcare, energy production, food, household and personal care products, and manufacturing…all pumping tons of chemicals into our bodies and the environment.
Innocent Until Proven Guilty
With over 75,000 chemicals currently registered with the EPA, only fractions are assessed for toxicity to humans. Only 25% of commonly used chemicals undergo even basic toxicity testing – even fewer are tested for effects on the developing fetus, brain or the immune system. Chemicals, like criminals, are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Most of these toxic offenders never go on trial and are presumed safe until widespread harm occurs and the public demands accountability.
The use of mercury in dental amalgam fillings is a perfect example of toxic chemical “grandfathers” that remain in widespread use without adequate manufacturer safety testing or government acknowledgement of its health dangers.
I worked in dentistry for years prior to my career in natural health. I am a victim of heavy metal poisoning as a result of handling mercury in dentistry, and a mouthful of mercury amalgam from an early age. The only way we can prevent illness or repair our health from toxic saboteurs is through education and finding safe alternatives for rejuvenation to reduce our total body burden.
Most untested chemicals make their way into natural ecosystems and end up in the human body. Because of this, we are unknowing victims in a giant, uncontrolled experiment with billions of humans functioning as guinea pigs – it’s making millions very sick. As a result of this toxic exposure and buildup, we’re developing “invisible illnesses” like fibromyalgia, arthritic disorders, chronic fatigue, lupus, scleroderma, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Gulf War Syndrome, multiple digestive and skin disorders, allergies, a myriad of chemically-induced immune system disorders, and yes, even cancer.
Future generations will look back upon this era with contempt for the indiscriminate way we’ve allowed toxic chemicals to pollute our world, erode our quality of life, and in general cause dis-ease and death – Rachael Carson
A Physician’s Perspective
According to Dr. Claudia Miller, Department of Family Practice, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio:
Today, we are witnessing another medical anomaly – a unique pattern of illnesses involving chemically exposed people who subsequently report multi-system and new-onset chemical and food intolerances. These intolerances may be the hallmark for a new disease process, just as fever is a hallmark for infection.
Miller and other prominent scientists believe this new disease process is the key to the emergence of a totally new type of chemically-related disorders and un-diagnosable diseases. Invisible disorders, like those mentioned above, are now believed to have a common denominator, toxic overload.
Toxic stresses originate from more than the absorption of external chemicals. A wide range of potentially toxic substances are generated from processes at work within the body. When natural mechanisms of detoxification malfunction or internally generated toxins are produced in excessive amounts and organs of detoxification are compromised, significant health disorders, disease, and premature aging result.
Nutrition-based medicine, through wholistic rejuvenation principles, is the necessary missing piece that enables us to live healthy in a toxic world, naturally.
One of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is, “It’s a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.” If you’re ready for a change in career, a current health care professional who is looking to expand their knowledge in natural health and rejuvenation, or a lay person who simply chooses to go beyond the conventional methodologies in order to live healthier, now is the time.
Distance-learning allows anyone to study at their own speed with a class manual and a CD. For those who learn better by attending online Webinars and Lectures, classes are available throughout the U.S. and the world – check our website for dates and locations. If you’re interested in taking health up a notch, take a look at the course outline for the Wholistic Skin & Body Rejuvenation (WSBR) programs. There are four levels, the first three can be taken in any order as the material in each stands on its own. The first three levels must, however, be completed before you achieve Instructor Level – once you do, you have embarked on a new career where you teach others and charge the same fees as the WSBR courses, which are two-day onsite classes for $695 USD or for the Webinar.
The ADVANCED WSBR level course is being offered on-site in historical Santa Fe, New Mexico, Sept. 17 & 18, 2010. There are still a few spaces left, please check our website at www.gloriagilbere.com and in the left column of the home page you can find all the details for lodging as well as registering for the course. This Advanced level takes an indept look at:
- the connection between oral health and overall health,
- aging without getting old,
- fundamentals of body mechanics (ergonomics)
- sweet poisons (the health dangers of synthetic sweeteners)
- hands of time – what your hands say about your health
- nails – tapping into the clues they provide
- visually-speaking (eye disorders and how to prevent and correct them)
- surge-protecting your health (the dangers of electromatic fields and how to reduce or eliminate them in your personal environment)
- first-hand solutions to second-hand reactions (quick “first response” protocols for natural urgent care)
Each course includes a 300+ page full-color class manual in a 3-ring binder and many patient education pieces to assist the student in lectures, consulting, public-speaking, etc.
If you’re looking to expand your current health practice or embarking on a new career in natural health, don’t miss this opportunity to join us in Santa Fe.
You should plan to arrive by Thursday afternoon, the class is Friday and Saturday, and you can depart anytime after Saturday night. Dr. G and staff arrive Wednesday evening and depart Monday morning – as do many other students who choose to take advantge of the sites, shopping, etc. in downtown Santa Fe where everything is within walking distance of our hotel.
