Compromised immunity and an increase of inflammatory responses can deliver a destructive blow to the system and leave one open to infection. Counter acting our negative responses with certain relaxation techniques, and adding a concentrated antioxidant source such as that found in certain organic teas, can provide an added line of defense in the prevention of chronic disease and reduce oxidative stress. Dr. Charles Benbrook stated in January 2005 in an Organic Center State of Science Review that, “ The highest concentrations of catechins are present in green tea and chocolate.
Claudia Sanchez believes certain relaxation techniques can also “feed” the body, mind, and health connection. She uses her skills as a Life Coach Hypnotherapist to help people work through their biggest barriers and live life to the fullest. She’s gathered experience as a staff member at Clark’s Nutrition Stores and in her group classes where members learn and practice the skills needed to move forward in their careers, or fulfill other parts of their lives.
Those that stick around for the entire broadcast will get a chance to learn about some very special teas that work perfectly with Claudia’s techniques, and have actually been used by different cultures around the world to heal, prevent illness, and energize the mind and body for hundreds and even thousands of years.
If you want to learn more on how these special tea formulas might help you, just tune in Thursday, September 27th at 4:00 pm PST to KCAA 1050 AM on your radio, at KCAARadio.com, or KCAAExpress.com. Choose to watch (USTREAM) or listen (tunein radio app) to the show. Listen live from anywhere on your cell phone, computer, or notepad.
The show will begin with Claudia Sanchez teaching listeners and host Elaine McFadden, MPH, RD the first steps of how to focus and make the mind/body connection. Claudia promises that once you understand and practice these initial techniques, you can begin down a path of relaxation, awareness, and healing.
From Claudia’s experience, she sees stress, “As a form of toxic thinking that affects the body's immune system and how we take in nutrients. Stressful thinking and feelings disturbs digestion not to mention cortisol levels that can then influence body weight.”
So in other words the more time we spend being relaxed, positive, and happy the better it is for our health. Most of us sense how destructive stress is to our mind and bodies, and yet we still keep ourselves from having the things that will bring us the most happiness.
Utilizing Claudia’s techniques together with the concentrated antioxidant nutrition you get from certain teas, you provide your body with a new level of nourishment and healing.
Incorporating these beverages, made preferably with no added sugar or only raw organic honey, can give people a new option over drug related treatments to sooth the symptoms of living in a stressful world.
