Integrative Medicine Health Coaching

What is an Integrative Medicine Health Coach? 

An integrative Medicine Health Coach promotes wellness by getting to the root causes of imbalances and providing guidance to correct those imbalances. The root causes can be identified by looking at your health history, your lifestyle and through laboratory testing.  An Integrative Medicine Health Coach partners with you to meet your health and wellness goals by re-balancing the root problems that are causing you issues. Personalized recommendations are provided to help you achieve your goals that may include lifestyle changes, exercise, stress reduction techniques, nutritional guidance, detoxification programs, botanicals and nutritional supplements.  


How is an Integrative Medicine Health Coach different from a normal Health Coach?

Integrative Medicine Health Coaches use Functional Medicine laboratory testing to determine exactly what is going on with your body in regards to how well you manage stress by looking at your cortisol levels produced by the adrenal glands, hormone levels, any food sensitivities you are currently dealing with, and any out of balance gut issues that can include bacterial overgrowth, yeast infections or pathogens. There is no guessing. The lab tests show what is going on and recommendations are based on those results.    


What are the factors that influence your health? 

Environmental: The air you breathe, the water you drink, the diet you eat, the quality of food available to you, your level of physical activity, exposure to toxins, and chronic stress or traumas you have and are experiencing all affect your health. 

Mind-Body-Heart-Spirit: Psychological, spiritual, social factors, and relationships all can have a profound influence on your health and well-being. Healing our emotional wounds can be the first step to physical health. Integrative Medicine sees your health in the context of you as a whole person, not just your physical symptoms. 

Genetics: Although individual genes may make you more susceptible to some diseases, your DNA may not have to be a negative influence for your life. Emerging research, in the field of epigenetics, shows that your genes may be influenced by everything in your environment, your lifestyle choices, as well as your experiences, your thoughts, attitudes and beliefs. That means it is possible to transform the way your genes express themselves by altering the way you live, what you eat and what you are exposed to. 


What you can expect when working with an Integrative Medicine Health Coach: 

· Recommendations for Functional Medicine laboratory testing based on your symptoms. 

· Support to achieve overall wellness with individualized recommendations for healthy lifestyle changes, detoxification, diet and nutrition, supplementation, fitness, as well as emotional and mental support that are specific for you. 

· Support with weight imbalances, food cravings, sleep, energy improvement, stress management, digestive wellness and improved diet. 

· Education and information on how stress impacts our lives and the effects it has on our bodies, our emotions, digestion/elimination, and hormone levels. 

· Support from someone that listens to you and your health concerns with compassion and understanding


Functional medicine testing (recommendations) 

Food Sensitivity test: Identify sensitivities to foods that you may or may not be aware of that are causing you distress.      

Adrenal/Hormone test: Evaluate how well you are responding to stress by looking at your cortisol levels, its impact on the adrenal glands and how it impacts the other hormones in your body  

Stool Test: Identify gut imbalances such as bacterial overgrowth, parasites, yeast, and other pathogens. 


There is no magic pill or quick-fix to your health and healing can take time. Supplements alone will not completely rebalance your system, as they are only a part of the bigger picture of who you are. Dietary and lifestyle changes, detoxification, stress management, emotional and mental healing, as well as exercise, all play a role in optimizing your health. If you are willing to make a commitment to yourself and make the necessary changes, then you are ready to begin the journey to feeling better and maintaining lasting health and wellness.    Contact me for a Free 20-Minute Wellness Call for more information and to determine if this is your next step to wellness.

Energy Medicine

Energy Medicine is Energy Healing which promotes physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being.  Combining scientific knowledge and intuitive understanding of the energies of the physical and energetic bodies, the Energy Medicine practitioner applies energy to the body’s energy systems to clear, create balance, restore and raise the vibration of the body’s energy fields. 


Everything is Energy. Medicine is used to heal and prevent disease. Energy Medicine uses energy to create balance that allows for healing.  


Imbalance and illness occur, whether it be mental, emotional or physical, when we repress or resist our emotions creating stagnation in one or more of our energy systems. Prolonged energy imbalances can lead to dis-ease.  We all have some level of unresolved issues from this lifetime or other lifetimes.   The more compromised the energy fields of the body become the weaker our fields are, leaving us vulnerable to experience more of what caused the stagnation initially. When we have weaker energetic boundaries, we are more vulnerable to a wide variety of external influences such as other people emotions, energy vampires and narcissistic personalities, as well as dark spirits that only further perpetuate our emotional and psychological issues.  Imbalances in the energy field can also cause repeated negative patterns in behavior and social engagement such as inability to manage stress, lost jobs or lack of success, feeling stuck, or moving from one bad relationship after another. 


When the source of the illness is known, whether it be an external influence, false beliefs about ourselves, judgements or resentment of others, or ancestral issues, then one can better deal with the issues and learn the lessons we are here to learn for our spiritual evolution and well-being. 

Clearing and Balancing the Energy systems of our body and our emotions, heals the body, the mind and the soul. When we have clear and balanced systems, we have a clearer and greater connection to our Divine Source and to the joyful and loving life we all desire.  We then have greater access to our Divine purpose and our spiritual gifts.   

Barbara works with Divine energy to clear and balance the related energy systems of the body,  providing energy for clearing disruptive energetic patterns, cords, blockages, entities and other interference.  

Barbara has a unique spiritual gift for effectively clearing people, pets and spaces of the dark and the dark entities.   

Energy/Intuitive Sessions include Energy clearing and balancing of the energy centers and fields as well as any insights and guidance received.


Some Benefits of Energy Medicine:

-Stress relief

-Emotional Balance and well-being

-Energy Balancing

-Dark Energy and Entity removal

-Clearing Energetic and Spiritual 

-Blockages and Attachments

-Past Life and Multi-Dimensional Healing

-Understanding the gift of being Empathic 

-Home/space clearing of Negative or Dark Energies and Spirits

Havening Techniques

HAVENING TECHNIQUES®
BETTER LIVING THROUGH NEUROSCIENCE


What is Havening?

The Havening Techniques engages our inherent biological system to permanently heal, strengthen and empower our minds and bodies. The Havening Techniques have been developed by Ronald A. Ruden M.D., Ph.D. and his brother Steven J. Ruden, D.D.S., ICF/ACC.

The Havening Techniques are powerful tools that can be used to alleviate the consequences of traumatic or stressful events.

Havening or Delta Techniques™ is a method which is designed to change the brain to de-traumatize the memory and remove its negative effects from both our psyche and body.

The Havening Techniques are healing modalities designed to help individuals overcome problems that are the consequence of traumatic or stressful encoding. They belong to a larger group of methods called psychosensory therapies, which use sensory input to alter thought, mood and behavior. The system is comprised of protocols and methods that use touch as a therapeutic tool we call Havening Touch®. This touch generates a delta wave in the brain and as a consequence we also refer to Havening Techniques as Delta Techniques™. Havening can be used within a psycho-therapeutic setting with professional mental health-care clinicians who have been fully trained and certified in the Havening Techniques. These techniques can also be used by non-licensed and /or allied health care professionals as a protocol for coaching, wellness and stress reduction.

 

Is Havening Permanent?

It’s not possible to provide any guarantees but once Havening is successful it has shown to be permanent in most cases. This is because Havening is believed to alter the biological structure of the brain. The return of symptoms implies either the traumatic core has not yet been found or the problem has been encoded in a different way. In particular, addictive and obsessive/compulsive behaviors, certain pain syndromes and vasovagal (e.g. Fainting) issues often need reinforcement or cannot be treated with the Havening Techniques at the present time. No therapy works for all problems, but Havening is demonstrating that it’s possible to successfully treat disorders that have not been resolved by western medicine. Although the Havening Techniques appear to have promising emotional, mental, and physical health benefits, they have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities and, therefore may be considered experimental. The Havening Techniques are self-regulated and they are considered alternative or complementary healing methods in the United States.

For additional information go to the official Havening website:  

https://havening.org/about-havening/overview


These techniques were inspired by a conversation in 2001 that turned into a book “When the Past is Always Present” and became the Havening Techniques, with the first official training occurring in May 2013, London. Now we have grown and spread to all corners of the world, with practitioners in Alaska to New Zealand and hundreds in between. 



What Types of Problems Can Havening be Used for?

The consequences of traumatic encoding can be physical and psychological.

Havening has been shown to help with:  


· Phobias

· Chronic pain

· Distressing memories (broken relationships, shocking news, loss, embarrassment, etc.)

· Victims of natural disasters (hurricanes, floods, etc.) and man-made (war, fire, assault, home intrusion, etc.)

· Emotional disturbances (grief, sadness, guilt, shame, etc.)

· Fear of abandonment
