      For many, the holidays are an excuse to pig out and to go over the edge in
      a way that harms your body and psyche. Can you 'go over the edge' with
      something that is beneficial to you? So instead of hangover, guilt and
      being bummed out; you are uplifted, energized, and filled with clarity and

      This is time of great confusion; of fluctuations of values, stock markets,
      bank accounts, weight, health, friendships, job satisfaction, pain; of
      information overload; of visual and auditory overstimulation via media and
      electronics; of consumerism; and of out of control diets and spending. The
      need for clarity and energy to deal is paramount and foundational.

      Hydrotherapies, diet, exercise and emotional healing are four ways of
      building up clarity and energy accounts. Intestinal cleansing via colonics,
      colemas and enemas can access the core of our body, the 'gut,' and open it
      up, loosen it up, ease elimination, and bring relief. It has the potential
      to create a foundation of clarity, strength, and energy needed to make wise
      decisions in all areas of life. Food is the physical fuel and exercise is
      the air and light fuel to feed the body and psyche. Emotional healing is
      relational fuel. They all work together.

      Get a head start for the holidays. Prepare mentally, emotionally and
      physically. Have the 'safe' foods in your kitchen environment, plan 'safe'
      activities that lead you outside into the beautiful air and sunshine of
      winter. So much of our nutrition can come from the sun and air and set our
      minds straight. Have the enema bag ready, be prepared to receive colon
      hydrotherapy. Have the necessary herbs for gas, immune strength, nervous
      system calming, digestion, and brain feeding. Take quiet time to read and
      meditate. For those with TV addiction, plan to have periods of silence, of
      listening to music, or practicing yoga, chi gong or abdominal exercises in
      front of the TV.

      The holidays can be a time of great ecstasy with a lighter stomach and a
      deeper breath in the winter air. One of my clients did a 3 day fast after
      Thanksgiving. She used a marvelous book called THE 3 - DAY ENERGY FAST:
      a forward by Donna Karan! What a great idea.

      I have a number of super sites I'm passing your way with this newsletter.
      It's good reading for the holidays and it helps to keep the focus positive.
      Prepare the mind and learn how to cruise through the holidays with joy and
      cultivate detachment from food and drink. Eating and drinking are a way to
      feel vital, to feel good. Use the holiday as an opportunity to feel better
      and to treat yourself better with more self-respect around dietary,
      exercise and social choices.

      Bring foods to the office to share that are 'safe.'
      The SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) site is complex carbohydrate free for
      all the carbo junkies out there. For example, it has gourmet recipes made
      from almond flour and honey . Try your hand at some new recipes.

      Chet Day sends out some great recipes and I used one for a party. Almond
      Cookies. I thought they tasted more like Marzipan. This is my version. The
      site has comprehensive health info and the Hallelulah Diet.

      2 cups almonds
      1/2 cup honey raw unfiltered
      coconut shredded
      pinch cardamom
      pinch nutmeg

      Grind almonds into fine meal. Work in enough honey to make a sticky dough.
      Roll into balls or log shapes and roll in coconut. Chill. I decided to add
      some shredded coconut into the almond and honey mixture with a pinch of
      cardamom and nutmeg. I rolled them into balls and put them in a bowl of
      shredded coconut. Then took them one by one again to finish rolling them in
      the coconut and set them on a plate of shredded coconut.

      Learn how to make homemade yogurt. Lucy's Kitchen Shop sells top of the
      line yogurt makers and cultures plus more. You might even want to give it
      as a gift.

      Homemade mayonnaise is another simple and gourmet SCD recipe! Just think,
      by the time you finish a binge and had previous thoughts of, 'Oh, it takes
      too long to juice, it takes too long to make homemade mayonnaise,' you have
      had more than enough time to do all the 'good things' that are gourmet and
      health supportive. Recovery from overeating and bingeing is slow plus
      quality of life is reduced for a period of time. Think better of yourself.
      Enjoy the holidays!

      Be aware that the chemical soup in junk foods and the systemic saturation
      with refined sugar, flour and milk and rancid fats can effect emotional,
      mental and physical states. Irritability, brain fog, outbursts of anger are
      part of this syndrome. According to Gottschall in Breaking the Vicious
      Cycle, the mix of pathogenic bacteria and fungi feeding primarily on
      complex starches and sugars including the milk sugar, lactose, can create
      fermentation leading to abnormal behavior and abnormal brain behavior.

      Elnora Van Winkle, a retired neurophysiologist from NYU, has written a
      paper called Toxic Mind Theory: The Biology of Emotions. Elnora's theory is
      a simple and cut-to-the-chase way of healing emotionally. It involves
      cleaning the nerve pathways of excess adrenaline and noradrenaline stored
      from repressed negative emotions and practical ways of releasing the nerve
      toxins by redirecting physically and mentally to original abusers or those
      that did not allow our expression of emotions. Elnora says that we need to
      work on two fronts: one, cleanse the nerve pathways and two, clean up our
      diets and eat natural and raw foods. She tells her personal healing story
      and provides a listserv to share self-help experiences.

      She describes her list as self-help for recovery from anxiety, depression,
      and codependency. She believes codependency is the basic addiction. Other
      addictions, including food addiction, are tips of the iceberg. People can
      heal from all of these with the self help measures. She suggests people
      print out and study the article since it contains everything people need to


      One can begin anywhere in the path to self-help and the emotions may be a
      very good place.

      Seek out friends that are nurturing, friends you haven't seen or connected
      with in awhile. Take time to visit and walk in city parks, arboretums and
      botanical gardens. Practice some of your favorite hobbies that you've
      forgotten. Do some beautiful and creative things with your environment. Get
      more rest, or read the books and articles that have been on hold.

      Institute of Biodynamic Psychology and Psychotherapy. The core factor that
      distinguishes biodynamic psychotherapy from other approaches is Gerda
      Boyesen's discovery that the gastro-intestinal tract (the GI tract) is the
      biological equal of the 'id canal' or the physical manifestation of the
      unconscious. Boyesen realised and discovered that the GI tract has a dual
      biological and psychological function that is engaged in, and vital for,
      the regulation of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. This
      function is called "psycho-peristalsis". This means we really have to get
      our intestinal health together!

      Lots of laughs for those that can handle it!


      Freda Manythinz in her famous and out-of-print book, Eating Disorders and
      Food Addiction: Double Cross or Cross Over, asks some very pointed

      " Is overcoming Eating Disorders and Food Addiction a moral issue? Are we
      so consumed with poor habits that we think change will bring about a living
      hell? Is it true that being controlled and jerked around by food is already
      a living hell? In reality, heaven is on the other side of scaling the
      'glass mountain' of food and beverage addiction. The villages of detachment
      from food, absence of cravings, and loss of obsession about the next food
      trip are on the other side of that mountain." (page 101)

      Many people say, 'Oh, I'm just going to wait for the holidays to be over to
      begin taking care of myself.' Yet, everyday is an opportunity for
      self-responsibility. The holidays are no exception.

      Here are more websites, reminders during the holiday season to avoid
      all-out binges on sugar, starch and alcohol and to create something
      positive for yourself. I've come across some great, inspiring, foundational
      and radical ones. I owe it to the good listservs I am on for many of the

      I know of 3 lists on the internet devoted to the 'bowels', the 'intestines'
      and 'detoxing.' If you have any questions, wish to share or exchange

      archives, lurk etc. Digests are available.
