Letter to All Patients: New Changes at Seleme Wellness Center

Wonderful Patients and Friends,

As I write this, I am sure you all are busy getting ready to move into the holiday season.  This email serves as an update on the latest shifts occurring at Seleme Wellness.  Recently, I have begun to move into a direction of healing in group settings, teaching wellness and transformative alchemy, creating group retreats, and opening a consciousness center and store called “Ground Gaia”.  I have been working to help hold energy for so many of my patients as our environment and society is ever changing and shifting in many ways. I know societal changes while radical, ultimately keep the world a better place as we continue to stay challenged and on our toes! Being mindful of my beliefs that you must be true to your authentic self, so you can lead the healthiest life, I have decided as of February 1, 2018 until the fall of 2018, I will no longer be accepting patient appointments. I will be taking a hiatus from active practice to complete an extensive list of long overdue writing projects, as well as my new endeavor, opening the Metaphysical and Consciousness Center, Ground Gaia in the city of downtown Fairfax.

My updated detoxification book, cellulite oil, organic millet/kapok back and neck pillows, will still be available through www.drseleme.com, as well as at our store, Ground Gaia.  For your convenience, those of you interested in still purchasing frequently used supplements, below are the instructions on how to purchase with my personal online pharmacy information.  Here you can buy the majority of supplements, with the exception of a few companies.

During this transition time, consults regarding specific and in-depth concerns will be addressed via pre scheduled phone appointments.  These consults can be scheduled by going to www.drseleme.com,  under the Services tab click on Remote Sessions, scroll down and fill in the requested information.  Phone consults will be considered as an office appointment at $125 for 0-30 minutes.  All payments can be made through www.drseleme.com and must be made 24 hours prior to the scheduled phone consult.

I have always had a passion for educating people on the benefits of healthy living and will continue to do so.  I will be sending out invitations and updates to various workshops/retreats such as; Healthy Detoxification, Essential Oils and Their Uses, The Truth About the Food You’re Eating, Inner Child Healing and Finding Your Authentic Self, and many more.  I am very excited about the opening of Ground Gaia, where we will also have many educational and cutting-edge classes for healing.  Look for our emails advertising Sound Frequency Therapy, Do Crystals Really Have Healing Vibration, Maintaining Wellness Through Essential Oils, Raising Your Vibrational Frequency for Health, and Healing with Sacred Heart Intention.  Please look forward to my educational videos on YouTube under my name: Dr. Seleme: The Transformative Alchemist, as well as webinars, and other public speaking engagements.

I am truly excited and look forward to helping people bridge the connection of body, mind, and spirit to heal in a whole new light and dimension.  Please look for our future events at www.drseleme.com and coming soon www.groundgaia.com. Thank you for your compassion and understanding and for being on this 20-year journey with me.  I hope to see you in all my future endeavors.

 

With eternal gratitude,

Dr. Venus A. Seleme

Dr. Seleme’s Tips for Weight Loss

Holidays are on their way, so I thought it would be a good idea to prep you with some self-help tips on how to drop some weight when you feel the need to “check yourself” with the onslaught of goodies you have been consuming….here is a little list of helpful ideas to keep the pounds away!

  1. Eat every 3-4 hours, this is critical to your success. Eating frequently keeps your metabolism running at a high rate and avoids the starvation mode that occurs when you have gone to long without food and now consume everything in sight due to blood sugar crashes. Aim for at least 25 grams of fiber/day, 3-4 oz. of protein (roughly the size of a deck of cards), 1 gram of fat (equivalent to 1 teaspoon of ketchup or 1 checker piece), starchy carbohydrate (ie. rice, potatoes, pasta) portions should be not larger than you fist, if you feel the urge for something sweet, try drinking an 8 oz. glass of water first, then wait 10 minutes and see if the urge doesn’t go away.
  2. Do not weigh yourself every day, this is the kiss of death. There are too many reasons weight fluctuates on a daily basis to use this as a guide. Weigh once in the beginning and then once per week. A good weight parameter will be 1-2 pounds per week. This is a healthy rate of weight loss and assures you are not losing vital lean body mass versus true body fat.
  3. Don’t be afraid to respond to real hunger by taking in an extra 100-200 calories snack (see my favorite low-calorie snacks below). Always keep a healthy snack in your bag so that when the urge to splurge hits you, you don’t eat something sugary.
  4. Drink 8 glasses of 8 oz. water per day for hydration and to keep the hunger away. Placing 1 drop of peppermint essential oil in your water is a great way to curb your appetite.
  5. Don’t limit your exercises. Variety is the spice of life. Switch up your exercise routine so that your body doesn’t hit a plateau and get bored. When your body grows accustomed to your workout routine it is less efficient at burning fat. If exercising in the gym, be sure to always lift weights first, then finish with your aerobic workout last. This is the best way to assure the greatest fat burning will occur because your body will use stored glycogen in the muscle and liver for energy first, then mobilize fat storage for energy last. Get in 45 minutes of a workout for 3-5 days per week. Divide the workout into am and pm workouts if time is an issue.
  6. If you have hunger between meals and you have already had your snack, brush your teeth, gargle and floss. Use a strong minty flavor. This can hinder your urge to eat.
  7. If sugar cravings are a problem adding 1,000 mg/ 2 times per day of the amino acid l-glutamine to your diet will help resolve many cravings and help heal any gut lining issue such as leaky gut as well.
  8. Adding Branched Chained Amino Acids before your workout will help increase muscle synthesis and fat burning and decrease fatigue.
