Find the Root Cause - Heal the Body
If you are sick and not getting the answers or care that you need (and deserve) you probably have not found or treated the root of the disease.
In the modern medical system a symptom or two gets a band-aid. A pill that magically disappears that symptom. But what caused that symptom in the first place?
Listen in for how to think about your own health from this lens...on where the body heals itself when the root causes are discovered and treated.

Why I avoid eating in restaurants....
I love gathering with people I love over a meal but lately, I have been avoiding restaurants.
Seed oils and farm-raised fish are two big reasons.
We need to avoid the Omega-6 rich oils which are causing inflammation in our bodies and brains. Those are
Sunflower, Safflower, Soybean, Canola, Corn, Vegetable, Palm
We should be cooking with/eating: butter/ghee, avocado and olive oils.
Just this week (end of July 2022) Time Magazine did a piece on why farm-raised fish aren't your best choice. Same issues as raising a zillion chickens in a small warehouse...that's how they do it with farm-raised fish.
I like to choose salads with olive oil and vinegar on the side, fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail, and if I know the source of their meat I love a good grilled plain steak with some chimichurri sauce.
I don't always say no to dessert either! But instead of choosing something with a zillion unknown ingredients, I'll choose ice cream with fresh berries or even chocolate mousse.
It's all about making the best choices we can make in any given situation.
Mindfulness, Play and Eating More Protein
We are three weeks into my summer group coaching program. This week we are covering how to delve into guided meditation, exploring the idea of play as our primary form of movement and the importance of getting enough protein, especially at breakfast.

Summer Detox Kickoff - Start with PRE-TOX
I just launched the Summer Biotoxin Detox program and here is lesson #1.
Pre-tox means stopping the inflow of toxins. Less toxins in - means our body can begin to let go of what is stored.
A few rules for pretox:
Drink clean water. Never tap. Preferably distilled water.
No cooking on Teflon or microwaving/storing food in plastic.
Fragrance-Free Everything. No candles, no Febreeze, no scented laundry detergents, no perfumes, nothing smelly.
Deodorants should be aluminum-free and toothpaste fluoride-free.

Butyrate Supplementation for Gut Health
Butyrate is a naturally occurring short-chain fatty acid that’s produced when prebiotic fibers are fermented by gut bacteria in the large intestine. It fuels your gut cells, increases levels of glutathione, and keeps the junctions of the gut tight. When the diet is poor in these insoluble fibers GI issues can occur. Supplementation is often helpful as a part of a protocol for leaky gut syndrome and IBS and can even help to speed metabolism. A diet high in non-digestible fibers like artichokes, asparagus, apples, and berries will help the body create short-chain fatty acids. Temporary supplementation is helpful in symptomatic cases.
If you are looking to better your gut health I'd love to schedule a call with you. The first step is to fill out the form on my website which lets you schedule a call right in my calendar. Go to www.MelissaHallKlepacki.com/application and let's get to the bottom of your nagging symptoms.
I’m back to Journaling
Do you journal?
Listen in for my reasoning to take up this helpful practice again but this time with less expectation and more freedom to explore what it means to journal.
I reference The Artist's Way which is a book worth checking out by Julia Cameron.

Love this podcast
As a health conscious 40-something woman, I really enjoy hearing Melissa’s tips each day. I’ve added it to my flash briefing on my Alexa devices so that I don’t miss a show on busy mornings. When I have more time, I also listen to the podcast and follow the show on IG. I’ve embraced many of her down-to-earth health tips, like washing your hands regularly to avoid colds, how to fight the flu, and using activated charcoal. This is one of my FAV shows to listen and learn from!
