I’m so excited to share with you my N.D.E. (Nurture, Digest, Eliminate) Anti-Inflammatory Health Program – a program intended to reduce/eliminate the inflammation in the body. In 2014, I experienced increased inflammation in my body as a result of surgery (my first ever!) on my hip at the end of 2013. In addition, I’ve known for years that eating certain foods create an inflammatory response in my body, resulting in pain. As a therapist, I’ve noticed that inflammation seems to be the culprit for much of what ails my clients as well.
In October 2014 I attended a wonderful workshop with Transformation Enzyme Corporation. During the workshop I was given an anti-inflammatory food list developed by Dr. Milton Bastidas, DC and Lisa Helffrich, RD. Since 2001, I have been a participant and proponent of eating for my blood type – based on the book “Eat Right 4 Your Type,” eloped by Peter D’Adamo. I discovered that eating for my blood type helps my body to metabolize the food I am eating, thereby reducing my inflammatory response. One of the reasons the blood type diets work is because our ancestors ate specific foods that our bodies know how to metabolize today, as a result of having been in our blood line. When I received this anti-inflammatory food list from Transformation, I decided to modify it to include the blood type diet. It resonated with me that certain foods cause inflammation because we are not meant to eat them. Some of the foods we ate and (seemingly) tolerated as children are not being metabolized properly today and it is my belief that inflammation is the result. After using myself as a test subject, I discovered eating anti-inflammatory foods, taking enzymes, moving my lymph, and cleansing my body reduced my inflammation. As a result, I am out of pain and I am feeling great!
The program consists of 3 parts: Nurture, Digest, Eliminate
(We must ensure that what goes in is healthy, what is digested is effective, and what is eliminated is complete).
Each part also includes: exercise, stress management, rest, & deep breathing (see Daily Suggestions).
I believe it will be very important to begin the program by looking at the elimination doors available within our body. The most important part of the program requires us to eliminate as much of the current toxic build up present in our bodies as possible. We need to make sure that the doors are open before pushing waste out. If we don’t approach the body in this way, the client could end up feeling sick as a result of detoxing too quickly and may not want to continue the process. The longer a client has been dealing with physical dysfunction and illness, the more patient we must be and the slower we must go. I wish to meet the client where they are and take our time in working together to offer healing to the client with the least amount of discomfort possible.
It is the intention of Iyasu to support our clients in their healing process without causing extraordinary financial stress. Upon commitment of participation in the program, Iyasu will provide each client with the following:
