Hair Loss - Vitamin D - Vitamin C - Low Iron

If you’re removing more hair from the drain than usual, you may want to take a closer look at your vitamin D and C intake (low iron = anemia = symptom of low levels of Vitamin C: These may be causing your hair loss.

Researchers at Cairo University found that women who were experiencing hair loss also had lower levels of iron and vitamin D2 — and hair loss only got worse as the levels dropped.
"This is the first time vitamin D’s possible role in hair loss has been highlighted," explains Rania Mounir Abdel Hay, MD, a dermatologist at Cairo University, and co-author of the study. "It might regulate the expression of genes that promote normal hair follicle growth." As for iron: Low levels may inhibit an essential enzyme that has been associated with hair loss in mice.
Consider taking a vitamin D supplement, which has more than just healthy hair benefits: It could prevent heart disease, cancer, and bone fractures. 
I sell a high quality Vitamin D that has 2000IU, $20 for a 90 day supply.  If you live in the Pacific Northwest, it is found that vitamin D levels are lower in a major portion of the population so it is even more important to have this important vitamin.  Low level Vitamin D has also been linked to breast cancer. 
Vitamin D and hair loss – Bone pain and muscle weakness could be a sign of vitamin D deficiency. Though lacking this essential vitamin is commonly associated with life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment in older adults and even cancer.  As mentioned above, researchers at Cairo University have now found a strong link between vitamin D deficiency and hair loss among women. Get your Vitamin D today, (I get out in the sun, but that still doesn’t give me enough).  I take one a day of my 2000IU to stay within the normal range. 
Vitamin C – This antioxidant is needed for the growth and repair of many different tissues throughout the body. It forms proteins used to make skin, tendons and blood vessels, it helps heal wounds and form scar tissue. Vitamin C also maintains healthy hair growth because it helps produce red blood cells, which keep hair follicles blood-enriched and vital. A few symptoms of vitamin C deficiency are anemia (iron deficiency), an inability to fight infections, and hair loss.

Client Testimony - LJF - 21 Day Liver Cleanse - 14 day Raw Plant Based

Client Testimony - This client shares from her heart her first 29 days.  Her struggles, and her pure relief from issues that she has been dealing with for 12 years.  The journey began about a year ago when working on her with Reflexology and Young Living Oils, and the other modalities I use in  All the modalities work together.  What I do is Reflexology and Holistic Health and so much more, but all compliment each other.

Read what she has to say about her 29 days of cleanse.  Then if you desire to change your direction of health schedule a consultation with me.  At the bottom of the notification of appointment will be an attachment with the Health History form you will need to fill out and submit prior to your intake appointment.  It doesn't matter where you live.  I can help you walk to health with me.  You will not be alone. 

LJF October 2014
Reflection, Recovery, Rejuvenation

There has been a lot of reflection during the past 29 days as I have been walking through a 21 day juice fast and now an all raw diet of fruits and vegetables for 2 weeks. 

It's amazing how much deeper change can be when you truly give it to The Lord in the process and when the person helping carry you through that process is also doing the same thing. 

I have known Lynn, (Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner) my whole life. Having watched her go through her significant amount of health issues through the years, and now seeing her significant amount of gained health, is what convinced me to let her take me on this journey.  It just made sense in my core. 

If I hadn't been able to watch Lynn gain such a significant amount of health that she had never had the joy of experiencing before... Then there is no logical reason as to why I wouldn't be able to as well, with her guidance. 

So here I am! Day 29. I still remember when she first said the words "... The juice fast is 21 days". My gut sank and I thought " OH MY GOSH, I CAN'T DO THAT!!! AHHHHH". Then I remembered thinking, "well, she did and look where she is Lindsey". 

Don't run away from this... is all I could think. Take it one day at a time, give it to The Lord. 

I also thought, no matter how "inconvenient" socially, physically, mentally and financially this may seem, none of it would be any more "inconvenient" than what my current ailments are already causing! 

The main difference? This had an opportunity towards health in all aspects of my life! I am, day 29. I am getting responses from family and friends such as:
 "you look so much healthier", 
"how much weight have you lost?", 
"it's good to see you smiling", 
"I'm really proud of you!", 
" your skin looks so much better". 

And most recently from my doctor- I don't have to check in for 3 months and I got to drop two of my medications! 

My doctor has been an integral part of my health as well, and a huge part of that is because she is willing to listen to what I say and apply her knowledge along with what I let her know Lynn is doing with me. She is allowing the two to work together and is incredibly supportive of true health, not just pushing one way or another. For that I am very thankful. 

This is a big accomplishment! It wasn't that way from day 1 however. There weren't necessarily negative responses as much as there was concern that I wouldn't be getting protein (which as I learned I would be getting plenty through most all vegetables, as I learned kale has 4.47 gms of protein per 2 cups). 

There was concern of the cost (which as I experienced, I spent the same if not less, it just felt more because I bought it all at once). 

There was concern I would be hungry, which I learned I was never hungry and I was actually receiving more nutrients. 

All I felt was cravings and an adjustment to habits. It has been a neat experience to not only prove all these things wrong to myself but to also see those around me become believers of the process as they have seen me transform in all aspects of my life and as I'm continuing to do so.

In have lost 20lbs, 22inches all around, my skin is clearing up, I don't remember the last migraine I had, I'm not bloated and swollen, I'm clear minded, I'm motivated, I have energy, I don't NEED coffee nor do I even crave to drink it anymore- just every now and then as I please, I breath without as much difficulty, my allergies subsided, I'm more confident, I'm happier... The list goes on. 

Yes, I am still taking many medications - and the two concepts are working very well together. With just the various medications in the past 12 years I have never felt this good since my health started becoming an issue. I have tried LOTS of medications and spent lots of money and time on doctor appointments.

I even had surgery for my endometriosis over a year ago, which made improvement but without Lynn's help with the use of Reflexology, Young Living Essential Oils and Lights,  I would have still had significant pain recovering. I started without her help after surgery and all that got me was moving like a turtle. Her knowledge helped relieve any residual pain I still had and allowed me to cope. 

It also started moving me toward the process of where I'm at now, day 29 of RAW eating and the best health I've felt in over 12 years.

It feels AMAZING to start seeing myself again, having a personality and a desire to do things... And to NOT be in PAIN every single day. I have JOY.

I wouldn't take what I've experienced away because it has made me who I am and drawn me closer to The Lord. It's made me more humble and have a deep compassion for anyone in pain. Now, I pray I will be able to help others feel HOPE even amidst weariness. 

I've been there, I didn't always believe Lynn when she said these actions would help me in such a deep and real way. I wasn't always strong enough to deal with the detox which would lead to health. But, now that I am this far, I wouldn't take this away for a million dollars. No amount  of money can take away quality of life and joy! When pain (detox) is leading toward health it is so much easier to deal with because one knows there is an end point. Before, pain was so hard to deal with because I never knew if there would ever be another way of life...

Lynn is an incredibly talented reflexologist and holistic health coach along with many other certifications. She has given me hope when everyone else made me feel like it was in my head or that it was something I just had to learn to cope with. 

They didn't all mean to, but when you aren't dealing with chronic issues it is hard to understand and I don't hold it against anyone. I'm so incredibly thankful for this journey and life change she is taking me on! There truly are not words to describe it. 

I used to have daily tears of fatigue and weariness. Now I have moments of tears that are of joy and relief. There were days I never thought a healthy me would come, but I hoped... The Lord has blessed me with this new life and I plan to grab a hold of it and enjoy every moment while not forgetting the journey that has taken me here.

Thank you Lynn Joy for starting me on a whole new way of life, a life of health in all aspects- mentally, physically and spiritually. 

The Lord has given you an incredible gift, THANKS FOR SHARING!! I love you!

Client Testimony - KJ- Liver Cleanse - Raw Plant based eating

This client has been doing a wonderful job of getting her health back.  She is on a journey.  One of the comments that she received said....  'There are no easy answers...'  To that I say...

There are easy answers, but they appear to be 'difficult decisions'. The idea that there are no easy answers is based on the idea in our society that 'real - living food' is ODD, and the fact that 95% of the things people put in their mouths are not anything but 'food like substances', which include addictive additives so that our bodies crave more.

When taking this journey, K chose to feed her body nutrients. And she has taken in and fed her cells more natural nutrients in those first 14 days than most people feed themselves in months. She is healing her body from the inside out.

It is fun to hear my clients talk about how people comment on how healthy they look. It is never about how much weight they lose, and the journey is not about that, at all. It is about regaining the health that God intended our bodies to have, with the food he gave us. And that is what their loved ones see... the health they are regaining. The weight loss tends to be the 'side effect'.
She has done MARVELOUS and continues to do so!

It really is all about mindset. Which is why a journey like this needs  You need to have someone be there to guide you in the walk, through the aggravated healing, the emotional healing that takes place.  

Read what she says about her journey - as a result of people around her and their own fears surfacing. If you don't know, I am a Raw Plant Based Foodist, I don't expect that or dictate that for any of my clients, but if someone were to ask me the question "Why are you eating only raw food?"  I may respond with "Why are you eating all those non food, food like substances, with all the chemicals?"  Although, if you know me, you know that I would probably not deliver it so abruptly.  

Her response:

Some of you ask me " why are you eating only raw food?" 
Well I thought I would answer that. 

I have diabetes and it was getting out of control. It got to the point that the Metformin I was taking was not helping and I had to take more and more insulin but I still had high blood sugars. 

I am addicted to sugar and I drank a 32oz sweet tea everyday and I am also addicted to food. Primarily deep fried greasy food. No wonder my blood sugars were hovering between 250-300 everyday. My weight was going up and I felt tired and in pain all the time. 

So I decided to do a 14 day juice cleanse and before I was finished with that I was completely off all my diabetes medication. 

Since the juice fast ( September 4-17 ) I have been eating raw fruits and vegetables. With a little bit of seeds in my smoothie in the morning and a little avocado. I have tried all kinds of "diets" and my body does not respond. I will get to a certain weight and stop. 

With the help from my friend Lynn at Walk to Health I am eating raw so I can put healthy live enzymes in my body so it can heal itself without the use of medications. I really don't know how long I will stay raw but right now I am really enjoying it and it is easy for me. 

And best of all my body is responding well. I am also running 6 days a week which helps me lose the inches I need to lose. 

I am down 27.2 pounds and 22 inches now and I am feeling really great. 

I have lots of energy, my skin is very soft, 
I sleep very well, 
I don't have acid reflux anymore, 
no highs and lows of blood sugars, 
and many other things. 

If you have any questions at all feel free to PM me or you can go to and contact Lynn Woodley. 

This has been a wild journey for me and I have a ways to go but I know that my health is getting stronger everyday.


Do you want to regain your health?  Sleep better, even out your blood sugars, clear up your skin, have more energy, get rid of acid reflux, reduce joint pain, back pain, really... the list goes one.  Your body knows what it needs to heal.  Your body will detox when and how it wants when you give it the help it needs to do so.  

Let me help you...  Schedule a consultation, doesn't matter where you live. In the confirmation email, there will be a Health History attachment.  (confirmation from  Fill that out and email it back to me prior to the scheduled appointment.  If there are no slots during a time that you are available, email me with some times that you are available and I will try to work them in.

Apple Season! Liver cleanser! Apple Press! 21 Day Liver Cleanse

Fall is the time to go out and pick some wonderful sweet apples.  I have Johnagold and Gala.  I pick them and press them and freeze the wonderful juice for future consumption.

Freezing rather than canning keeps the living enzymes alive and your body will benefit far more from a raw apple juice than a cooked juice.

My two trees produce about 12 gallons of juice, and they are young trees. 

One reason why fall is such a wonderful time to do a Organ cleanse, especially a Liver cleanse, is because fresh, raw, apple juice is a wonderful liver cleanser, and pressing apples is fun and a wonderful time with family and friends.

Building a functional and fairly inexpensive press is not that hard.  Mine is a double sink, and a garbage disposal framed up in a stand.  With a few other pieces and there you have it. Here is a picture of mine.

I have written and am leading a 21 day Liver Cleanse program starting October 1, 2014.  

The base of the program is $299 for my guidance and instruction for 21 days. There will be specific juicing required.

Location is not a factor.  If you are interested in doing the cleanse this year, please contact me as soon as possible.

ADD / ADHD Using Essential Oils - Alternative Healing

ADD and ADHD have been two issues that have increased in number effected over the last 30 years.

I attribute much of that increase to what we have done to our guts over the past 30 years.  There have been many studies written about ADD & ADHD.  What I believe is the bottom line on much of the issue is lack of ability to absorb nutrients.

So how do we go about re-gaining that ability?

First is re-establish healthy gut flora.

If you have a child who is ADD or ADHD, look at the history of the health of your child AND the history of the health of the parents.

Were there pharmaceuticals taken by any of them that would destroy the flora?  Antibiotics being the number one offender.  When we take antibiotics we are not told to take a probiotic after, and for at least 9 months, if not a year. 

My recommendation for re-establishing healthy gut flora is to drink 1 - 2 bottles of kombucha a day.  I would start slow, because it can cause your gut to detox, and 'clean house'.

I will be posting a video soon on how I make my own Kombucha.  It is really VERY easy to do and much more cost effective.

Second Establish a good Living Essential Oils System

Terry Friedmann, MD, completed pioneering studies using essential oils to combat ADD/ADHD and achieved clinically significant results in 60 days.  Researchers postulate that essential oils mitigate ADD/ADHD through their stimulation on the limbic system of the brain.

ADD/ADHD is thought to be caused by mineral deficiencies due to the lack of ability to absorb.  Once the absorption issue is taken care of via good gut flora, then minerals can then once again be taken up in the body's system.

Essential Oils:
Vetiver, Lavendar, Cedarwood, Clarity
Or blends:
Brain Power, Peace & Calming, Clarity

Application Methods:
Diffusion: 15 min 4-8 times a day

Third add in Real Food Technology Supplements without synthetics

Advanced Ambrotose: 2 times a day (Glyco Nutrient - food for the cells)
Manna Bears 2 times a day for children 15 years old and younger

Fourth consult with me about what needs to change in the diet
Removed all food dyes, and packaged meals.
Eat 2/3 raw plant meals
Be careful of the source of your meats
Fill out a Health History form and schedule a session to discuss

Fifth book your Reflexology appointment to help your body heal.  

Reflexology is one of the oldest recorded healing modalities known.  It works.  Schedule your appointment now.  Wait no more.

Change is hard, but Healthy is easier.  

Let's start today by getting your family on the road to recovery.

Essential Oils - 101

Six years ago I began my study of essential oils.  At that time I really didn't know or understand what Living Essential Oils were.  I put them in the category of fatty acid oils that we use in our kitchens to prepare foods. 

In the six years, I have taken course work and received certificates of study in many different usages of Living Essential oils. 

On this post I want to focus on 'What is and what can a LIVING essential Oils do?'

When God created us, he didn't put pharmaceuticals on every corner.  What he did do, was place wonderful plants beside us.  Why?  For many reasons, but my focus here is the healing benefits of those plants.

In the bible, essential oils are mentioned over 1000 times, but the writers didn't expound on the oil benefits, i.e. healing, because in the day that they wrote the bible, people knew and understood the benefits, unlike today. (Healing Oils of the Bible - Study)

In today's time, we scoff at, and take no heed in what "Living" essential oils can do for our bodies, and the ailments we have.

On the market are many 'essential oils' that are dead, not living, but sold as an 'essential oil'.  These oils cause many people to think that there is no healing benefit to any Essential Oils.   In addition the fragrances of those dead oils can be disturbing to our bodies, causing people to negatively respond to them, as I do, by getting migraines by those adulterations of essential oils or the added synthetic scents. 

When you have a Living Essential Oil, you can't have that negative effect.  But that is for another article to be written. 

When you have a Living Essential Oil, you still have frequency in the oil.  Living Essential Oils are structured chemically similar to our human cells and tissues.  Remember, God created human and plants.  So these Living Essential Oils are compatible with our protein and are bio-available to our bodies. 

These are God's pharmaceuticals.  When using Living Essential Oils, you can heal your cells in your body.  From a simple cut, a Brown Recluse spider bite, to deep virus's in the cells.  I have seen the effects of healing from the Living Essential Oils on clients and on myself. 

Mind you... these are not pain pills that take away the ailment in 20 minutes.  These are the medicines that God gave us when he created us.  We have ignored them for too long.  Here are a few examples of some of the benefits you can receive from the oils:

Clove: decreases the viscosity or thickness of the blood, whereby enhancing circulation.
Essential Oils that contain Limonene have been shown to prevent and slow the progression of cancer.  
Lavender: has been shown to promote the growth of hair and increase the rate of wound healing.  
European Scientists: studied the ability of essential oils to work as natural chelators, binding with heavy metals and petrochemicals, carrying them out of the body.
Living Essential Oils are complex, and because of that do not disturb the body's natural balance or homeostasisIn contrast - synthetic chemicals often disrupt the body's homeostasis. 

If you are dealing with virus, bacteria, illness, etc. consider first coming in for a Raindrop, where I apply 8 different oils on your feet and spine.  Or contact me to discuss how to get your own first "Home Kit" to help yourself and your family better the health of your home and bodies.

21 Day Cleanse - Inquire now if you are interested

Time to cleanse your body's system?  I have written a 21 day cleanse to help your body reset and clean out. 

Have you ever tried a 21 day cleanse only to give up at day 3-5?  That is because those days are the hardest days in the whole of the 21 days.

I will be holding an in person class, so if you happen to be in my area of Oregon, you can register for the "on site" portion of the class.  There will also be a Google Hangout  "Web group" available for those who are at a distance.  Time of those classes will depend on where people are located.  I will adjust the time to work best for most. 

This cleanse will be available 2 times a year.  January and October.  There will be different packages to choose from for your cleanse.  

This is not a do it yourself program.  It is a program where I will be walking beside you, helping you, supporting you, and educating you. 

Note that the Premium Package will be the package where you will get the best cleanse.  This package will only be for your first cleanse class.  There will be items in this package that you will only need to buy one time.  If you are a returning 'Cleanser', you will potentially not want to order the Premium package a second time.

For more information email:
