Advisement:  Spirit Medium Laura provides the highest quality intuitive services available today in compliment to, but not replacement for, licensed professional advice, healing and treatment.   This message covers entire website and service.

INTRODUCTION:  Spirit Medium Laura is a gifted medical medium, energy healer,  Certified Health Coach.   She can “see” into your physical, emotional and spiritual bodies, offering insight and energy healing in compliment to, but not replacement for, licensed professional resources.

Any healing obtained in sessions with Spirit Medium Laura is done by you and God.  Her job is to be the Channel for Healing, not the healer.

Energy Healing.    Besides offering insight Spirit Medium Laura provides the service of intuitive energy healing, channeling energy as her guides instruct.  Her master guide, St. Ignatius Loyola, is the same as John of God’s.  She discovered this years after she and he began their respective relationships with this entity!

Types of Work.  Physical Insight.  She can see almost perfectly into the body to offer insight as to what to look at with your doctor for further treatment.   Recently a client stopped Laura from “peering” into her form, as she seemed uncomfortable at the accuracy of the insights revealed.  These insights can be used as insight for treatment with a licensed medical professional of your choice.

Physical Healing.   She has removed symptoms such as a bleeding nose, pain in a subject’s back and a headache in minutes.  In her own body she has successfully done energy healing to hasten recuperation from virus, created ideal weight, sound sleep, hormone balance such as relief of hot flashes and night sweats, emotional well being, back pain, improved immune system, improved energy, mental clarity, etc.

For treatment of illness Spirit Medium Laura recommends you seek a licensed medical professional of your choice.  See DETOX DIET for more information on how you can heal physically, mentally and spiritually.

Emotional/Spiritual Healing.  On the emotional side she has helped individuals gain insight to the self, experience deep emotional shifts, release and set new vibration to attract that which is desired in life.  Spirit Medium Laura regularly recommends therapy for treatment with a licensed medical professional as an option for healing.  See DETOX DIET for more information on how you can heal physically, mentally and spiritually.

Medical Intuitive Healing Protocols

See DETOX DIET for more information on how you can heal physically, mentally and spiritually.

This page serves to offer deeper insight to the principles outline on the DETOX DIET page of this website.  A body with a higher vibration cannot house illness.  So the first step to any healing or manifesting is with proper detoxification.

These ideas and suggestions can only work if you are properly detoxed.  Some of the ideas on this page will help you detox as well as the DETOX DIET .

The more I learn about holistic health, the more I realize and have proven how much healing we have within our control.  The rest of this page seeks to provide certain resources for those interested.


(1)  SEXUAL HEALTH.  1 a.  FEMALE Hormone Balance.   1 b.  MALE.
(14)  EPSTEIN BARR VIRUS/ MYSTERY ILLNESS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme, Hashimoto’s, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.)
(19)  ITP



BLOATING, PERIOD IRREGULARITIES, BLEEDING, CYSTIC ACNE.  Usually due to high estrogen to progesterone balance.  Vitex (Chasteberry Tree) can help.  I buy my Vitex from Piping Rock as they are very inexpensive and high quality. 

This article states how it can help balance your hormones, normalize irregular periods, etc.

Here is a review of someone who bought Natures way Vitex from Amazon.  I think you might relate to this.  And when hormones are balanced weight gets balanced.  Here is the link. 

I bought this one on Amazon.   It is inexpensive and works wonderfully for me.  The literature on this says it takes up to 3 months to work, but I began to see results within 2 days.

MENOPAUSE.  HOT FLASHES or NIGHT SWEATS.  (See Section 18 below for more information.)   I take 150 TO 200 mg of pueraria mirifica (Latin for miracle herb) and 1640 mg of Vitex Chasteberry Tree per day to balance my hormones naturally.

I bought this Vitex on Amazon.   It is inexpensive and works wonderfully for me.

I bought this Pueraria Mirifica on Amazon,  At first I took alone and had post menopausal bleeding from it.  Now I cut one capsule into 3 days of dosage, and balance with the Vitex.

You might want to try using Vitex alone at first then if that does not relieve your symptons add in the Pueraria Mirifica on low dosage.

Dr. Christiane Northrup was where my journey began.  But she does not seem to concern herself with estrogen dominance which I experienced in just taking pueraria mirifica alone.

(1b)  MALE SEXUAL HEALTH.  ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.  Lose weight.  Harvard Medical School Article HERE.  PENIS SIZE.  Lose weight.  Article HERE.  Warning this site has language and pictures you might find distasteful, but I included since the material is effective and correct.  Go HERE.

(2)  FLU, VIRAL INFECTION, COMMON COLD.  Healing protocol for cold, flu, or viral infection.  This will shorten recovery to health or prevent you from getting sick as you feel something coming on.

I am a Certified Health Coach in addition to my mediumship skills.  All medical advice needs to be validated by a licensed medical professional, however, this is what I do.   I discovered this, seeking a way to stay healthy, after repeatedly getting sick.   After research I found medical professionals regularly do saline nasal and throat irrigation to keep themselves from catching viral infections from their patients.

Saline wash of nasal cavities and throat gargle.  I fill a small squeeze bottle with table salt and filtered water.  I spray up my nose and into my throat to gargle.  You can buy nasal saline washes at drug store or a Neti Pot.

As well, I take this Green Food Supplement.  More on this below.   8 capsules at a time each hour to two hours, until I feel my energy soar.  I actually take 8 in morning and 8 at night as a daily practice.  Helps with my entire health and immune system.  This winter I did not get sick.  I can feel my immune system working.  Amazing stuff.

Feel better.  Here is link to the Green Food supplement I take.

Read section on perfect immune system below for more details about supplements I take.  I no longer get sick, which for me is a major thing to say.  This year I did not get the flu and did not get a flu shot either.  :)

Lomatium dissectum.  Sounds like something from Harry Potter, but seems to be a miracle herb from American Indians in southwestern regions of North America.  Here is an excerpt of one person’s review of this herb on Amazon.  I used it and it made me sicker.

Terry Thrun, “We have used lomatium for years to treat numerous health concerns including strep throat, colds, flus, stomach bugs, mouth sores, and infections. It has worked great every time.

We often use other natural products too, but this is one of the strongest we use and sometimes the only the one we use.. While others are often very sick for days or even weeks we seldom get sick and if we do get well very quickly and usually never have a full blown case of what is going around.

Lomatium has been very helpful in helping us stay well.”   This review was taken from HERE.  PS I tried it and it did not work for me, but I think I was suffering from Epstein Barr Virus (EBV).  For EBV use Monolaurin (can be found on Piping Rock, which is where I get mine).  For each virus you have to find the right herbal remedy.

Olive Leaf Extract.  This is mentioned in many references I read and is in many formulas.  I try to find avoid formulas and rather find one or two herbs to use alone or together that are the best of breed.  Here is a review from which explains more about a personal experience with this herb.

Judy L., “I started using this supplement because it is supposed to be antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. My 93 year old mother had a perpetual runny nose that I was told by doctors was an ‘old age thing.’

I started her on this twice a day, and the runny nose has almost been eliminate. I also have a large dog that has had yeast infection in her ears from the time she was a puppy. Over the years, we have tried various meds from vets, ear washes, etc. and were never able to eliminate the infection. Sometimes it was reduced, but it was never gone.

The poor dog had painful inflammation, excretion, and odor in her ears for most of her life. I started opening the Olive Leaf Extract capsules and putting it on her food. For the first time in her 10 years of life, the infection is gone. There is no longer any inflammation, odor, or pain.

I have also used Olive Leaf Extract in combination with Oil of Oregano to eliminate an abscess in a tooth. Within less than a week, the swelling went down and the pain was gone. In addition to its antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal benefits, Olive Leaf Extract is also very high in antioxidants – much higher than blueberries.

My husband is taking it to reduce his breakouts of skin cancer. Since taking it, his doctor is having a much harder time paying for his boat. New breakouts have been tremendously reduced, and, hopefully, they will eventually be totally eliminated.”  Link to actual review is HERE.

FENNEL SEED.  (Herbal Mucinex?) See LUNGS section at #5 below.

(3)  CANCER.

Wormwood, Herbal Chemo.   When I first searched for an herbal chemo I found nothing.  Then, all of a sudden, when I was researching something else, this herb came up.  The testimonial I have included here discusses how it can be used as herbal chemotherapy.

Donna K., “My daughter has been dealing with early stage ovarian cancer and was taking chemo pills for six months. The whole time her entire body was hurting from the pills since they were killing every cell in her body.

She felt like an old woman who couldn’t get out of bed, couldn’t do anything and became depressed from it. During that time, she researched her cancer online and found a doctor who prescribed a healthy all natural diet along with supplements.

She also found that sweet wormwood helped to fight off cancer cells. Each month, she had to have her blood drawn to check the progress of the chemo pills. Nothing changed during the 6 months.

She began her all natural diet during the time she took the chemo pills (if she could eat) and then once done, began taking the Artemisinin (sweet wormwood) we found from Absorb Health. The next month after being off of the chemo pills and only taking Artemisinin, her cancer cells had decreased by 50%.

I told health care lawyers about it (I work with them) and one of them shouted that she believed its the meds that kill the person, not the cancer cells. Eating all natural and taking supplements are the way to go.

I have spread this story around and now have people asking me for the product name so they can use it. I am so thankful for this. My daughter now runs 2-3 miles a day, looks beautiful again and is happy.”  This review can be found HERE.

Some say cancer can be prevented and even reversed with nutrition (healthy plant based diet with juicing).

I am a Certified Health Nutrition Coach under Dr. Bill Sears who recuperated from Stage 4 colon cancer using first traditional treatment, then what is called a real food diet (this is an anti-inflammatory diet, similar to the whole foods plant based diet, Mediterranean diet and the diet recommended by Dr. Andrew Weil).

Dr. Andrew Weil’s diet explained here.

Vegetarian juicing approach to healing cancer.  Gerson Clinic.


Here are some ideas to fight breast cancer from a session with a client.  Perhaps some of these ideas might resonate for you.

1. Kangen water.  Ionizes water.  Here’s a testimonial of use for breast cancer.

2.  Excess Iron.  Whole grains needed in diet to balance iron.

3.  Water with apple cider vinegar.  Sets body ph balance.

4a.  Omega 3.
4b.  Omega 3 and breast cancer.

5. NAC for breast cancer.

5a.  Great article on NAC and other nutraceuticals that deal with cancer.

6.  Resistance training to build muscle for immune system support.

7.  Spirit says animal fats are not good for this, unless from organic sources.  Vegan could be considered better for this, because of absence of animals fats, however, vegan is a controversial health choice as of writing of this piece.

8.  Wormwood.  Natural chemotherapy.

9.  Let Go Let God and affirmative prayer, “I thank you God for providing me complete and total health.”

10.  Immune System.  Here is a product I take that helps me a lot.  Nature’s Way System Well.

11.  Purpose.  Having a purpose in life is important for longevity and health.

(4)  ECZEMA, ASTHMA. I researched what to do for Eczema for a friend.  Here are my conclusions.  I feel first video below is best overall solution.  I have heard as well juicing and/or taking juice powder products (Juice Festiv, Garden of Life RAW Organic Food capsules) might be helpful to detox the body with phytonutrients on a regular basis.  As well, I have read these supplements Omega 3, B Vitamin Complex and Vitamin D are supposed to be good for Eczema.

Here is the elimination diet, which is basically a healthy diet but as well checks to see what foods you do not tolerate, as Eczema is related to food triggers.  Here is a short video explaining.

Here is something about olive oil for Eczema.  As I researched this, I found a number of testimonials that this works, so it can’t hurt to add this in, but I think overall diet and health is foundation for healing.

Plant based diets for eczema and asthma.  I wouldn’t go this extreme, however, moving in this direction (ie plant focused diet) will help tremendously.

(5)  LUNGS, COPD, EMPHYSEMA, ASTHMA, ALLERGIES.  Interesting article on a person who reversed his mother’s emphysema following a holistic protocol of diet, immune stimulants and phytonutrients after his mother almost died from alliopathic medicine and prescription drugs.  This “cure” is similar to recommendations of Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Fred Pescatore and others like him.  Phytonutrients are the thing that heal, not drugs.  Information about this HERE:

FENNEL SEED.  My mother died of lung cancer and had bronchitis for years before.  She used to eat Fennel, calling it finocchio (Italian name) when she was younger.  All of a sudden I got a message during a prolonged respiratory infection that was rapidly turning into bronchitis that I needed to take Fennel.

I think my mother was sending me a message from spirit.  So I went out and got some.  Now in process of using.

Used to help with respiratory congestion, bronchitis, and cough due to the presence of Cineole and Anetol which are expectorant in nature, among their many other virtues. Fennel seeds and powder can help to break up phlegm and prompt loosening of the toxins and buildup of the throat and nasal passages for elimination from the body and quicker recovery from respiratory conditions.

(6)  LYME DISEASE.  Basic protocol is the anti-inflammatory diet my particular Health Coach Certification recommends.  Details on “The Lyme Diet,” by Nicola McFadzean, ND at this link:

(7)  PERFECT IMMUNE SYSTEM.  IMPROVED PERSONAL ENERGY.   Affirmation: “I AM Healthy, Well & Wise.”  Solution:  Eat 3 parts green leafy and cruciferous vegetables a day to 1 part high quality protein/complex carbs.  No sugar.  No refined foods.  Only REAL food in modest quantities.

Daily exercise for one hour.  Keeping stress low with daily meditation and conscious choices to maintain a low stress lifestyle.  Doing the work you love, your Dharma.  Taking responsibility for everything created in your life.  Choosing to create new experiences with universal mind and then creating them.

As well, take a GREEN FOOD supplement in capsule form.   Some suggestions include Juice Festiv, Juice Plus and/or Garden of Life Perfect Raw Food.

I take Garden of life along with Nature’s Way. Alive! Max Potency Multi-Vitamin. (180 caps, 3 / day, 60 day supply, $.11/ capsule, $20.06 per bottle).  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these products.  HERE:

IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOST.  There are times when you are stressed, unrested and have been exposed to a virus, cold or flu.  Here is a protocol to follow.

a.  Nature’s Plus System Well.  Excellent resource to stimulate the immune system.  Take double dose after exposure to illness or when you feel something coming on.

b.  Take an anti virals such as Olive Leaf extract, Monolaurin, Garlic, Oregano Oil, Lomatium, Black Elderberry, Black Seed Oil, L-Lysine.  I use to choose one others have used and achieved good results with.

c.  Oscillococcinum, a homeopathic remedy.  Gets excellent reviews on if used in early part of illness.

d.  Dannon Active yogurt.  This works really well for me.  Buy in most super markets.

e.  Energy healing and intention.  Here is an article I wrote on this.  Go HERE.

(8)  WRINKLES and CREPEY SKIN all over body and on face.  I have found this product which is strongest Retinol 2.5 with Hyaloronic Acid.  I plan to mix with moisturizer and rub on thighs, upper arms, decolletage, etc.  I already use a similar Retinol 1.5 mixed with a moisturizer around my eyes.  I am wrinkle free in this area even at my advanced age.  Get this stronger Retinol product here:

Dr. Weil’s article.  Note he recommends what I said during session:  1.  EXERCISE with light weights, 2.  DIET.  plant based anti inflammatory diet (The anti-inflammatory diet emphasizes a variety of colorful vegetables and fruit, slow-digesting carbohydrates, plant-based protein, and healthy fats, more below), and (3)  PESTICIDES besides hereditary causes pesticides is the largest cause of this disease (affects myolin sheath).  (4)  ESTROGEN.  Also mentions Estrogen deficiency.  I take a phytoestrogen called Pueraria Mirifica for hormone balance.

ANXIETY HELP and AGING.  A friend came to me because he was suffering from more and more anxiety as he got older.  He was unable to deal with stress, he could not sleep at night and he felt a lot of social anxiety.

I used my medical intuitive abilities to research various aspects of his health which ultimately he needs to explore further with a licensed medical professional.  This is what I found.  Perhaps such findings can help you.

“Here are four ideas.  Let’s take a look at these to see where they go.  It might take a while trying different things before we get to solution.  It took me one full year to heal myself of recurring respiratory infections.  I finally found out it was mold in my air conditioning system.

Your anxiety is NOT purely psychological because it arrived with age.  I believe your anxiety is actually causing your sleep issues, your inability to compromise or handle any stress.

Possible ways to handle this.

1.  Look at your Glaucoma medication.  Most are beta blockers which can cause anxiety as side effect.

What I found out is beta blockers (prescribed for Glaucoma) can INCREASE anxiety.  Beta blockers ironically sometimes prescribed FOR anxiety can increase it.  Here is an article on this and holistic treatment protocol.


2.  Eat only whole real food.  The numerous additives in food can cause anxiety.  Since you are already proving a sensitivity to drugs, I think you might also be uniquely sensitive to all sorts of chemicals put in our food.  Green light foods (eat in unlimited quantity) are fruits and vegetables. Yellow light foods (moderate quantity) are dairy, fish, organic meat, oils, etc.  Red light foods (hardly ever) are sugars, refined carbs, processed, etc.

3. DHEA and anxiety disorder.  Another idea.  Maybe go to an endocrinologist?   DHEA has been linked to anxiety.  As we age this hormone depletes significantly in body.

With age DHEA goes way down.
DHEA controls testerone:

4.  REDUCE INFLAMMATION with JUICING, DIET and EXERCISE.  Shortened telomeres (brain nerves) creates anxiety (article from Science Daily below shows a study which substantiates this claim).  As we age the nerves in our brain shorten as does size of brain (covered in videos by Dr. Neal Barnard on  Links below.).  It makes sense then that a holistic approach including juicing be used to help correct underlying condition.  Here is article on shortening telomeres causing anxiety in a scientific journal.

Here are videos of Dr. Barnard talking about aging and the brain.

▶ Neal Barnard, MD: Power Foods for the Brain – YouTube

▶ Avoiding Alzheimer’s – Neal Barnard MD – YouTube
Juicing but with capsules (freeze dried juice powder placed into capsules) should be done in addition to than juicing on your own.  Why?  Because it is more concentrated, more convenient and complete to give you want you need to detox, fortify and relax.  Here are some articles on how juicing can help with anxiety.

ANXIETY HELP and AGING.  From what I can tell, juicing in high quantities seems to be something unilaterally used for healing just about everything.  Why?  Because it encourages the body to heal itself.

Here are some meditation videos to calm and relax.

WEIGHT GAIN AND DIET SODA.  Ironically that which we eat to lose weight, helps us gain weight!  Dr. Mercola article HERE.

I just lost 5 pounds that I did not even know I needed to lose.  Now I weigh less than when I was 15 years old!

I did this effortlessly with a mostly low fat vegetarian with a bit of fish.  You can eat anything you like but the emphasis must be on the mostly.  :)

3/4 of calories from fresh vegetables (some low glycemic fruits) in large unlimited quantities.  Plenty of water.

1/4 of calories is protein and complex carbohydrates:  beans, legumes complex carbohydrates such as whole wheat pasta, brown rice, sweet potatoes, nuts, seeds, legumes, some dairy, some eggs, some fish.

Low or no fat, oil, sugars, preservatives, processed foods, chemically treated foods.  (Food additives and toxins make you want to eat more.)

Here is a video by Dr. Joel Fuhrman on no dieting to lose weight.

Healthy Eating with Traffic Light System.

(14)  EPSTEIN BARR VIRUS/ MYSTERY ILLNESS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Lyme, Hashimoto’s, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.).  After many years of recurring upper respiratory infections, fatigue, body aches, trouble sleeping, depression I finally went to the doctor.  He found the antibodies to Epstein Barr Virus in my system. 

I had mononucleosis when I was 19 years old, so this was not a shock.

TREATMENT:  So finally knowing my fatigue, respiratory infections and body aches were caused by this I did a little research.

DISCOVERY:  The latest outbreak of this disease happened after I had gone vegetarian, almost vegan.  It seems that a way to combat or treat CFS/ME is with these amino acids: l-carnitine found in meat, fish, poultry and milk (wasn’t eating), alpha lipoic acid (ALA) only found in very small amounts of food, and n-acetyl-cycteine (NAC) not found in food (however cysteine is found in yogurt, fowl and other foods I was not eating).

I actually had a “feeling” to start eating yogurt to get my strength back.  As soon as I added this, chicken and and other animal proteins to my diet, my strength came back, almost instantly.  Please note these foods should be organic, grass fed.

Another discovery.  Your body only produces small amounts of ALA from food, so for optimal anti aging health you might want to consider supplementing with it.

Be careful with NAC as there is research supporting higher doses to be toxic to the body.  Most believe 500-600mg a day is tolerable, however, proceed at your own decision.

Here is a video by a physician which goes into use of these 3 amino acids for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Steps to Healing Epstein Barr Virus (EBV).   Here is a protocol for fighting Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) in your system, and removing it over time.

1.  Open the virus coating.  Lauricidin or a quality Monolaurin supplement does this.

2.  Improve the immune system to kill off the Epstein Barr Virus, once the coating is opened.  See Immune System Support, item #7, on this page.

3.  Toxin removal.  Viral die off removal.  Once you begin to kill the EBV you will have to remove the dead virus remains from your system.  Die off symptoms can be as bad as having the virus itself.

Some ways to remove toxins include.

1.  Lymph Drainage Massage.  Should be done regularly.

2.  Body Flex/Stretch for Drainage. Yoga or something that allows the body to gently flex and stretch  tissue on a regular basis to help with the drainage, sort of like when we wring excess moisture out of a washcloth.  Must include lots of water before and after doing this.  This is in addition to massage.

3.  Sweating.  Hot yoga.  Dry hot sauna (hot yoga better).  Drinking lots of water beforehand.


Hypnosis love audios here and book reference below.

Self Love Hypnosis.

Love Attraction Hypnosis.  Relationship Magnet.  I tried this one.  Unbelievable.

Book by Melodie Beattie, “Make Miracles in 40 Days.”

(16)   LONGEVITY, HEALTHIEST LIFE STYLE/DIET.  Qualities of those in the “The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World’s Healthiest People.”  centenarians from 5 areas of globe.   Buy book HERE.

The nine lessons:

16a. Move naturally. Don’t do marathons or pump iron; work around the house, garden, walk, cycle, walk when talking on the phone.

16b. Know your purpose. Have a reason for waking up in the morning.

16c. Kick back. Find ways to shed stress, whether it’s praying, napping or going to happy hour.

16c. Eat less. Stop eating when you are 80% full.

16d. Eat less meat. Beans are a cornerstone of most centenarians’ diets.

16e. Drink in moderation. Only the Seventh-day Adventists in California didn’t have one to two glasses a day.

16f. Have faith. Denomination doesn’t seem to matter, but attending faith-based services (4 times a month) does.

16g. Power of love. 
Put families first, including committing to a partner and keeping aging parents and grandparents nearby.

16h. Stay social. Build a social network that supports healthy behaviors.

17.  DEPRESSION.    FoodForTheBrain.Org.  Summary from this web site.

17a.  Increase your omega-3 fats

17b.  Increase your intake of B vitamins.   People with either low blood levels of the B-vitamin folic acid, or high blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine (a sign that you are not getting enough B6, B12 or folic acid), are both more likely to be depressed and less likely to get a positive result from anti-depressant drugs. In a study comparing the effects of giving an SSRI with either a placebo or with folic acid, 61% of patients improved on the placebo combination but 93% improved with the addition of folic acid. But how does folic acid itself, a cheap vitamin with no side-effects, compare to anti-depressants?

17c.  Boost your serotonin with amino acids.  Serotonin is made in the body and brain from an amino acid called tryptophan. Tryptophan is then converted into another amino acid called 5-Hydroxy Tryptophan (5-HTP), which in turn is converted into the neurotransmitter serotonin. Tryptophan can be found in the diet; it’s in many protein rich foods such as meat, fish, beans and eggs. 5-HTP is found in high levels in the African Griffonia bean, but this bean is not a common feature of most people’s diet. Just not getting enough tryptophan is likely to make you depressed; people fed food deficient in tryptophan became rapidly depressed within hours.

17d.  Balance your blood sugar.  Up your intake of chromium. This mineral is vital for keeping your blood sugar level stable because insulin, which clears glucose from the blood, can’t work properly without it. In fact it turns out that just supplying proper levels of chromium to people with atypical depression can make a big difference.

17e.  Bring on the sunshine.  Vitamin D3.  Known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, around 90% of our vitamin D is synthesised in our skin by the action of sunlight. Vitamin D deficiency is increasingly being recognised as a common problem around the globe and may be implicated in depression, particularly if you feel worse in winter.

17f.  Bad mood foods.   Avoid any chemicals, man made, not real food.  Concentrate on green vegetables.  Quick Summary is Traffic Light System.

Green GO!  75% of plate fill with green vegetables.
YelLOW!  25% of plate.  Includes grass fed omega 3 free range dairy, meat, fowl, wild fish especially salmon, complex starchy carbohydrates like brown rice and beans, coconut oil, olive oil, butter, natural fats and oils.  Fill 25% of plate with these types of foods, whole, natural, unprocessed.
Red NO!  ZERO!  Any processed foods, fried foods, sugars, white flour, simple carbs, processed fats and oils, etc.  Moderate alcohol to none.


Approach.  The best approach to reversing hair loss is stem cell therapy however, this is years away.  My favorite approach as of April 2016 is DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) blocking herbal supplements, combined with Biotin taken orally and applied topically.

Possible reasons for your hair loss can be due to a variety of reasons including genetics, hormone imbalance, iron deficiency, thyroid disease, etc.  Therefore it is best to get a complete medical exam to diagnose the cause of the hair loss before attempting to self diagnose and treat. Here is an article about what causes hair loss in men and women.  Go HERE.

How to block DHT.

1.  Take a prescription or herbal DHT blocker.  Prescription DHT blockers include names such as Propecia and Avodart.

2.  Take an herbal DHT blocker.  There are many available today.  The major herbal ingredients to block DHT are saw palmetto berries, Pumpkin Seed Extract, Nettle Leaf Powder, Soy, Zinc.  Biotin is a mild DHT blocker however it is associated with hair loss problems because deficiency in it will cause hair loss and is associated with growing hair back.  Here is a good herbal DHT blocker on  There are many there so be sure to do your own due diligence.  Go HERE.

3.  Wash your hair with DHT blocker shampoo.  Go HERE.

4.  Women.  Balance your hormones, especially after menopause.  How to balance your hormones after menopause.

4a.  Go to a physician that does bioidentical HRT (BHRT) to receive a customized compound pharmaceutical exactly formulated to your body’s needs.

4b. Go to a physician that does herbal HRT and/or do it yourself (at your own risk, of course).  I take Pueraria Muraria, an herb from Thailand with phytoestrogens 1000 times more potent than Soy Isoflavones.  However, I have found for me I had to find the correct dosage and balance it with a natural progesterone of some sort.  Be careful of using PM, as a side effect on high doses of it is uterine bleeding.

Dr. Christiane Northrup, MD sells PM from her website HERE.

4c.  Natural progesterone supplements.  Dr. John Lee, who wrote, “What Your Doctor Won’t Tell You About Menopause,” stated when he was alive, the most important hormone to take after menopause if needed (ie you have estrogen dominance symptoms) is progesterone compounded from wild yam. When I started using this cream with PM I felt really balanced.  I use NOW progesterone cream.  It is inexpensive and works for me.  Get it HERE.

Here is another physician who explains the technical ins and outs of this beneficial hormone, debunks warnings as to claims it causes cancer, etc.  I found her website and articles to be most helpful.  She consults with individuals in remote areas besides locally to her so you might be able to work with her on your own hormone balance issues if you do not have a doctor locally to you with which to work.  Dr. Helen Pensanti website is HERE.

4d.  However, my hair seemed to continue to fall out!  Other factors to consider in reversing or stopping hair loss include stress, diet, hair styling (I used a straightening iron), genetics, etc.

4e.  Hair loss is a complex issue not to be taken lightly.  I am now using an herbal DHT blocker and I am adding what is in the capsules into my shampoo so I treat the affected area locally besides internally.  This is the product I am now taking. Since I have just started taking it and it is one of the least expensive brands out there, I am not certain it will work.  Go HERE.

As well, I am taking Biotin.  Dosage can be anywhere from 5000 mcg to more per day.  You can add this to your shampoo as well, from the capsules, or buy a biotin, DHT blocking shampoo like this one HERE.  I have not tried this shampoo, but just wanted to provide as an example.
