New Year Blessings AmandaLynn!
Yeah I’m happy to be writing to you from the clinic! I want to apologize if the last enewsletter from our ever amazing MA Nicole was in anyway confusing with the slang that Baby Donnie was done! Well in fact he is luckily past the most needed perinatal goals so he will excitingly be born probably right when he is due March 3rd. I will be taking off the first 2 weeks of March then be back in office with the little guy! Thank you all for your prayers and support to my family as I took this one laying down! So what happened you want to know? I will share the concern was I had a short cervix they call it. It’s when the “plug” looks pretty thin and that’s one of the stages during delivery. I never had any other signs of preterm labor, so I was fairly confident it is just how I’m built with my chronic connective tissue disease. I don’t envy all my patients who have to go to lots of dr appts, do bedrest, who scare your doctors and don’t have the knowledge and trust in nature to hold on and know when enough is enough!! lol I thank God I do! Oh my doctors luckily still have a good time with me and I’ve hoped to help show them another way too! Well I look forward to a great year of quality care and continue the amazing results and to turn my community slowly from dis-ease to easing into a better life! Many blessings to you all!

What diet is right for you?
How would I address my patients’ weight loss needs?
Easy 3 step plan:
Step 1 Finding out why your body is not being as efficient as it needs to be to help you lose the weight.
What went haywire? This is so important to find out for it will give you huge insight to what system is off and will continue to be off only to worsen if not resolved.
Digestive issues ie: food sensitivities
Stress, sex (hormones), or sleep issues disrupting metabolism and blood sugar levels.
Brain chemistry ie anxiety or depression
Poor detoxification pathways ie liver, kidney,colon or skin. Environmental toxins are buffered with excess water and fat when they cannot be removed.
Some other unusual or rare possibility
Step 2 Burn the FAT!
Herbs and nutrients ie: Stevia, Green tea, alfalfa, specific amino acids, certain foods can help too!
Individualized Diet Plan, EveryBODY is different and thus each diet needs to be is it, a high ketogenic (atkins) diet…precautions required ie type of exercise, check your ketones, replace minerals and only for 6months! Perhaps the no carbs diet, blood type or the forks over knives no animal, fat or oil diet is what you need.
Exercise each diet may have different requirements for this and everybody will reapond differently to different exercise.
Watch out for the not well studied fad of HCG dieting, this pregnancy hormone diet is huge and was not studied well back in the 50’s. Last time we took a non-natural hormone (Premarin) we had Breast Cancer peak and has yet to come down,,,,don’t dabble here I have many examples of patients who went right back to their obese weight after treatments. This doesn’t treat the root cause and doesn’t instill good lifestyle habits and maybe damaging your health if your not naturally pregnant why would you want someone else’s hormones….I have yet to hear where they are getting it btw! pregnant mares again…no not premarin all over again!~
Step 3 Maintaining the New You!
Creating new habits with friends..instead of eating and drinking go visit an art museum, park or shop!
Smaller plates at home
If it was processed stay away, eating what a cave man would eat is a good guideline
Stick to it 80% of the time, give yourself rewards!
Keeping those root causes for your weight concerns at bay!
You can take back your body it just takes support, inspiration and proper guidance. You can easily have energy, vibrance and vitality with your slimmer body!

Straight talk from our patients!
Western Medicine Gave Me No Hope!
Before Dr. Amanda, traditional medical personnel immediately stuck a permanent label on me, prescribed life draining toxic drugs, told me I would be on certain medications the “rest of your life” and never once talked to me about the power to heal my own body or what might even be possible. They wanted to manage disease. Dr. Amanda wanted to play in the realm of wellness and the innate intelligence of the body and unlimited potential.
Dr. Amanda was the first one in over 20 years to properly diagnose me
For over 20 years I had been treated as having thyroid disease. But when I was diagnosed in November 2010 with type I diabetes, shocking as I didn’t fit the profile or have family history, I knew that I needed to surround myself quickly with people who believed bigger than limiting diagnoses.
Dr. Amanda was the one to discover that instead of thyroid disease, I actually had an auto-immune disorder which required a different course of action and treatment and was the underlying cause of the diabetes. And most powerfully, she was the only medical person that told me it might be possible to heal my thyroid, or at least protect it, and correct my sugar levels. Something that western medicine never, ever once offered me.
The Western doctor scoffed but Dr. Amanda was correct!
Dr. Amanda also began to treat my adrenals and within 4-5 months I began to feel energy that I hadn’t felt in at least 8 years. My western doctor actually made fun of adrenal fatigue (and supplements and homeopaths). And here I was feeling better than I had in years!
Dr. Amanda is what medicine MUST become in this country
To round off this complete package, Dr. Amanda is extremely intuitive and sees the body as energy and related to the whole. She hears your power, sees possibility where others do not, and knows how to harness all that to make it part of treatment. She helps to connect the dots with how your body reflects your entire life experience and assists you in making sense of that. And she loves my health and my body just about as much as I do! Dr. Amanda is a true partner, deeply respects and is in awe of health and the physical body. My body hears the hope, the excitement and the possibility. And I know in my spirit that this makes all the difference in the world.
Dr. Amanda, you are a very gifted, talented, angel in a white coat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for hearing my deepest desire for optimal health, believing in my body’s unlimited potential, and giving me hope when western medicine would not. This gift is immeasurable and without a price tag.
