We had our first Workshop Reunion on June 26, Wednesday from 5:30-7:30pm. As you recall, we focus on making better diet and emotional choices for prevention and healing (read overcoming sugar addiction and emotional eating). We have a fun format. Each person shared a story. We did some practical exercises, had some delicious snacks and viewed a few of Dr Lustig's Skinnies on Obesity videos on Youtube, episodes 4 and 5. Number 4 is about the epidemic of obesity among 6-month old babies. Dr Lustig is a pediatric Endocrinologist. The final conversation amongst our reunion group was about consciousness vs. unconsciousness when it comes to our lifestyle behaviors and choices such as exercise, diet, relationships and creativity.


I also returned from a week in Orlando FL attending the annual conference of the International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy (IACT). I'm an instructor with IACT and Nationally Board Certified. I loved connecting with so many colleagues in my field from all over the country and some from overseas. We had many wonderful receptions, meetings, lectures, luncheons, dinners and even dancing for some of us! What shocked me so much while traveling was the level of morbid obesity, obesity and overweight that I witnessed whether at the conference, the hotel or the airport.


I'm digging into Dr Lustig's book Fat Chance and he is doing his best to explain the epidemic of obesity. Dr Lustig feels that the waist circumference is a better measure of the serious fat that BMI. Sugar is the big driver of all the 'metabolic' conditions: cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, obesity and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)! Daily I work with people in the office who struggle with 'sugar addiction', food addiction or eating disorders. They are making conscious choices to heal, to reverse the years of poor eating and movement habits and detoxify their systems.


Nip in the bud: weight gain, abdominal wasteline increase and abdominal visceral fat. I can help you with food choices, cleansing your systems i.e. GI, Liver/Gall Bladder, Kidney and parasites and reviewing your supplements. Summer and hot weather are a great time to change it up: do a cleanse, drink raw juices, take more time to rest, take a yoga class weekly, receive colon hydrotherapy, meditate, do something fun and creative. Be in touch if you would like some guidance on where to start, what to do, or if you want to jump in and get going!

We had a great group and a great time at our last Workshop. We have renamed it, Stayin' Alive! It's challenging to find the right name for the whole syndrome of sugar addiction, emotional eating and resulting diseases. The Workshop is designed to keep our life force going: basic tools of nutrition, detoxification, hydration, exercise, meditation, breathing and mindfulness. This workshop is excellent for preventative health. This workshop is a great foundation for those suffering from any one of the 'sugar' or 'emotional' imbalances. More details to follow.

As If You Had Not Heard Enough About Sugar! 


Sugar in the Tennis World

One of my clients responded to my April newsletter with this info on Maria Sharapova and the company manufacturing her candy line, Sugarpova! Sharapova is world's women's #2 tennis player. Her 8 varieties of candies are made from the cheapest GMO, chemicals, sugar and processed foods. With morbid obesity, obesity and overweight epidemic, I am concerned about the influence this popular tennis star will have on encouraging children to consume more 'sugar'. Is that really where we want to go? No! So, check this out and please respond to the corporate address with your enlightening words on sugar and health and how Maria might set a better example for kids.


Hi Sheila,

Just read the newsletter and I'm feeling disgusted at the prospect of Maria Sharapova's new candy line affecting adversely the health of so many.

I am going to write a letter - here is the address if you are interested.


It's Sugar

3155 SW 10Street, Sweet A

Deerfield Beach FL 33442


Maria may be unaware of the dangers of her candy line. I think she should know.




PS BTW Sharapova got knocked out in the 2nd round at Wimbledon. Too much candy! 


Sugar in the ER

One of my clients is an RN in the ER. I asked what the top 3 things she sees when people come in for emergency treatment. The answer surprised me: #1 diabetic ulcers, #2 COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease from smoking, secondary smoke, mining, asbestos, and unknown, and #3 Painkillers. The latest request is a dilaudid injection with an oxycodone prescription. Not bad for a stay in the ER. Notice that sugar is the cause of the #1 reason people enter the ER where this RN works!

Get Off Your Butt!


My friend, Laura Key and I climbed Blackett's Ridge in Sabino Canyon in Tucson and shared some great health info. Laura is getting ready to hike in the Grand Canyon over the summer. Laura sent this info on the hazards of sitting too much! It's groundbreaking, very important and check out the links below!

Moving Beyond Exercise


Did you know that the benefits of regular exercise can be trumped by extensive time on your tail?  Prolonged sitting is a distinct health hazard, independent of inadequate exercise, and regular exercise cannot fully undo the harm caused by too much sitting.  One study, for example, compared healthy subjects receiving regular exercise whose other leisure activities included being seated more than six hours or less than three hours daily.  Exercisers with lots of leisure tail time were 37% more likely to die during the 13-year study than exercisers with less tail time.  The reason involves an enzyme that influences cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and blood sugar.  Levels of this enzyme drop when you're seated; but fortunately even modest movement is enough.  Make it a priority - morning, afternoon, evening - to move about for a few minutes every hour.
