Awaken & Heal Your Inner Child Retreat (April 15-17, 2016)

 

Have you lost your zest for life? Has your direction in life become unclear, confusing, or lacking? Have you thought to yourself that there must be something more? Does your soul yearn for something that seems mysterious or unattainable?

If so, then you may want to consider reconnecting with your inner child through my weekend retreat from April 15-17, 2016. I am very excited to offer this workshop to help you rediscover your true self. Save the date for a fantastic weekend of:

    • chakra clearing and energizing
    • guided meditation
    • sound healing with crystal singing bowls
    • deep connections and insights
    • fun creative activities and games
    • guided, playful, story yoga classes
    • optional reiki sessions and angel card readings

This inspiring and restorative setting allows communion with nature and furthers the experience of connection with your inner Self. Here, you can take a step back; immerse yourself in silence; emerge refreshed—mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Come and learn how to avoid these toxic chemicals in your home that affect cellular, mental and respiratory functions of your body.

This Sunday, February 28, 2016, we will identify some of the most common toxins we are exposed to daily and show you how to replace them with safe essential oils as well as other natural and effective cleaning products.

Learn the do’s and don’ts of green cleaning. Receive easy and safe DIY recipes for replacing toxic cleaning chemicals in your home. Simple and easy recipes for health, home and beauty products.

Indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air due to chemicals and molds being trapped in wall-to-wall carpets, home insulation and air filters. Learn techniques to cleanse the air in your bedroom, kitchen and children’s room to enhance your body health.

I’m passionate about teaching people simple and natural solutions to create more health for our body, our emotions, as well as our homes.

Day 1 Fall Group 21-Day Cleanse

Meditation

Meditation

I actually got up this morning feeling very motivated for the beginning of this year’s Fall Cleanse to start. I am sure I have been wining and dining a little too much with my annual “I’m sad summer is ending party” this past month. Not to mention it was a birthday month for me and everyone knows you must celebrate the entire month long for it to mean anything, because after a while you just begin to get numb to the idea of ANOTHER birthday!!

Well time to pay back…to my health that is. Something everyone should do to keep the balance of good health. You know, live a little, pay a little. Sometimes it’s live a lot and pay a lot and now is one of those times. So for the next 21 days I will remove all gluten, soy, dairy, red meat, corn, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and fun from my diet!

On page 7 in the “Before you begin” section of the Seleme Health Cleanse Manual it suggests to reflect on your life and important people in it and why do you need the cleanse, what does it mean to your body mind and spirit? I feel it’s important to understand that people can be just as toxic as food. The energy of negative or emotional vampires can be just as detrimental to your health and well being as what you eat. As I made my list this Fall season I found it was very different from the Spring list. The falling leaves and the cold quickly approaching has given my energy now a different feel. I am feeling all the inward self-reflection and wanting to cultivate my body and mind . The Lungs are associated with the Fall season and they are connected with “letting go” of things that no longer serve you, people, ideas, memories, so that you can go inward and heal and bring new energy once more in the Springtime.

My list has more spiritual aspirations this time around, in that I’m wanting to understand the ways and whys of the energetic universe. Probably thoughts all humans ponder at some point in their life. I want to know the connections in all things related to the cosmic forces and my life force. The meaning in plants, animals and the sky around us. I’ll be honest and say I also want to understand the “why” in why some people act the way they do but again my frame of mind now is to know there is a reason for everything and that is which I seek to understand this time around. As for my list of toxic people, rather than sending them away this time, I release anger and resentment and send them energetically, light filled with hope, laughter, love and healing. Words I have lived my life by.

It’s only the morning of Day 1 and already I am feeling better emotionally. Ask me again in 5 days how I am feeling after no sugar, caffeine, meat or wine and I may be a drooling, desperate fire breathing dragon but for now I am a happy camper!  I started the morning with a detox protein shake and cup of bone broth. Next I made grain free pancakes with eggs, almond butter and bananas and washed it down with a cup of dandelion tea. Mmm, mmm good! Need to get ready to give a lecture on “Face Diagnosis and Detoxification” at the Illuminate Frederick Mind-Body-Spirit Festival this afternoon. Can’t think of a more appropriate way to begin this 21-Day jouney! Bring on the healing!

 

Detoxification and Face Diagnosis Lecture/Workshop @ Illuminate, Frederick

Please join me this Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015 at Illuminate, Frederick–a Mind-Body-Spirit Festival, for a very informative and practical lecture on detoxification and face diagnosis. You may be surprised to hear about what toxins we ingest through our food and from the environment–unable to be released from your body without your help, and what your face (& teeth!) can tell you about your health, and what easy steps you can take to begin detoxifying for boosting your health. I’ll be answering questions like:

– What are the genetic vs. environmental factors to aging?
– Where does all this toxicity come from?
– How do toxins effect your body?
– Which parts of your face correlate with which organs in your body?
– What do the lines/wrinkles, pimples, puffiness, and colors on your face say about your health?
– And can you change them?
– What is the proper way to begin a detoxification cleanse?
– Where do you start and how do you finish?
– How often should you cleanse?
– What are you allowed to eat during a cleanse?
– What things you can do, easily, to increase the benefits of a cleanse?

$5 admission covers my workshop and others at the event, which lasts between 10 am – 6 pm!

This festival features acupuncture, massage, reiki, reflexology, tarot, intuitive readers, astrologers, psychic mediums, crystals, handmade gifts, luxurious spa products, and much more!

Detox Program New Start Date — March 1, 2015!

f395aa67-ba4d-4fae-a841-b04f2876864d

Dear Patients,

Some of you may be familiar with the term mercury retrograde, which refers to a 3-week period when Mercury appears to be moving backwards in the sky.  During this time, miscommunications, issues with technology and electronics, and breakdowns in mental processes tend to take place more often than others.  And we at Seleme Chiropractic were no exception to its effects!  Some of our supplies for the detox program have been delayed either in its production or delivery to us, so we have decided to push the start date to March 1, 2015.

We find that this is actually a blessing in disguise, since this will allow you more time to gently detox/prepare for the program AND we’ll be closer to springtime, which is the ideal time to detoxify, according to Chinese theory.  So in a way, we give thanks to Mercury Retrograde for aligning us with the best time for a cleanse!


adb3f1c9-b537-4092-82ae-1302fcf586a4

For those of you still wondering if this program is right for you, here is some more information:

We are living in a world that contains more man-made chemicals than any other time in human history. Through the food, air and water we ingest substances into our systems that we were not designed to handle — substances like pesticides, chemicals, residual industrial waste, and petroleum discharge. Studies show that most people have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. And that’s not good or healthy!

Because of our our bodies are often overloaded with toxins, I have created the Body Purification Cleanse Program–a gentle detoxification protocol designed to cleanse the body’s filters: the colon, liver and kidneys. My system is easy to follow and because of how I’ve ordered the cleanse, it will be rare for anyone to suffer from detoxification die off.

PROGRAM SUMMARY: WHAT YOU’LL DO

After you register, you will receive my Seleme Health Detox Box which contains all the supplements needed during the cleanse.  Over the period of 3 weeks, at 2-3 times per day, you will be taking a specific variety of these supplements to help your body’s major organs to cleanse and detoxify.  You will be eating a specific wide variety of fresh and healthier foods to support your body during this time.  The program manual will provide clear directions, information, charts, diagrams, and useful tips for other practices to help you maximize your cleanse.  If you have any questions or need some motivation and accountability, you will have access to support directly from me and other program participants via membership to a private Facebook group.

WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE IN THE DETOX BOX:

  • MediClear Plus
    protein shake; repairs digestive reconnective tissue
  • Colon Plus Caps
    removes toxins from large intestine; bulks up stool
  • Colon Clear
    aid in removing toxins from body
  • Bromelain + CLA*
    breaks down pathogenic material & assists in digestion
  • Beta TCP*
    helps drain gallbladder; support removal of toxins out of body and digestion of fat
  • Pure Body Clear
    gentle detoxification support for liver, kidney, lymphatic, and gallbladder function
  • Bio-Protect*
    antioxidant; provides protection from harmful free radicals the body produces while removing toxins
  • ADP
    natural antibiotic used to eliminate harmful pathogens that live in the body
  • Omega 3 w/ CoQ10*
    reduces pain and inflammation and provides healthy fats for gut, cardiovascular, and nervous system repair
  • Seleme Health Shaker Bottle & Pill Holder/Organizer
  • Program Manual, hard copy (a .pdf file will be sent to you to keep forever!)

*new products in the detox program

Registration is FREE and the only cost is for the detox box, which is $402 (including tax), meaning that for less than $20/day, you’ll be doing your body a huge favor by getting it’s state of health back on track after however many decades (and we at Seleme Health would say that’s a worthwhile investment)!  To make things even easier, the Detox Box can shipped to you for an extra $25, which includes insurance.

Detoxifying your body doesn’t have to be painful or difficult.  If you follow my program, you’ll be provided with everything you need for a successful cleanse, be able to cleanse in the comfort of your home, and have access to direct support and camaraderie from me and other program participants online.

I hope you’ll join us March 1, 2015 for the Body Purification Cleanse!  Call the office or speak to Edie at the front desk to register!
