My Toughts About Cellular Malfunction

Here is something to think about… Could all diseases and sicknesses be based in cellular malfunction? I have listed 10 reasons that I feel lend some credence to this train of thought.

Dr Ann Wigmore taught us that all disease is based in deficiency and toxicity. If this is true then it makes sense the first thing to suffer the effects of deficiency and toxicity would be our cells. What do you think; Could the detox rebuild program that we do here at Creative Health Institute (CHI) that includes wheat grass, living foods, rejuvelac, fermented foods, pure alkaline water, fresh clean air, proper rest at the right time, exercise and a positive-loving mental attitude change how a cell replicates and presents itself in our bodies?  

1. There are 243 different types of cells that come in all shapes and sizes.
2. They are the bricks and mortar from which all living tissue and organs and systems are made.
3. Your body (tissue, organs and systems) is made up of more than 75 trillion of these cells.
4. You (spirit-brain) is given sole responsibility for every one of these 75 trillion plus cells health and welfare.
5. You have the greatest of responsibilities, as only you can guarantee the health and safety of every cell.
6. When you take charge of the situation, by providing proper guidance and direction every cell will answer to your commands.
7. Every second 10’s of millions of cells are reborn, creating amino acids, vitamins, hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes and adenosinetriphosphate (ATP – cellular energy), all await your direction.
8. An almost endless army of cellular workers along with the bricks and mortar you will ever need to self generate a healthy body are under your command.
9. So, a strong healthy body can only originate at the cellular level and must be given the proper information and substance to do so.
10. So, a sick and diseased body can only originate at the cellular level and must be given improper information and harmful substance to do so.

Wishing you and your family the best year ever.

Testimonials: June 2011

A Testimony From Velisa of Hobart, In.

Velisa has been at Creative Health Institute for seven days.  Before coming to Creative Health Institute, Velisa had been fighting breast cancer with traditional western medicine and she was not happy with the results. She will graduate with her 10-Day Detox Certificate on Sunday and she has experienced some amazing changes in the past few days.

” I would definitely recommend (CHI) to other people — the camaraderie, the love and the best part about it is they are not being paid to do what they do. They are sharing and loving toward the guests that come here and it is a life-altering experiencing, a life-changing experience. In society you think  people just don’t care anymore but when you come here, you find that there are still caring, loving and concerned people.”

“When I first came I had two lumps, one in my upper left chest and one in the sternum. By Day 3 the one in my upper left chest had gone down.  It had been about the size of a small egg, now – it is about the size of a quarter.

Velisa, who has had a double mastectomy and undergone two rounds of chemotherapy as well as 65 radiation treatments, was told by her doctor that the lumps were still spots of cancer. The doctor also told her that chemotherapy would no longer prolong her life.

The Raw Living Foods Lifestyle has given her a new hope — and a new energy for life.

“My body feels extremely good. Not only did the program transform my natural body. It was also a mental transformation. It reminds me of the bible where it says, ‘Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’

“Bobby has taught me how to transform my eating habits to transform my body so my body can heal itself.”

A Testimony From Tim of Peoria, Il.

“My blood pressure went down more than 50 points and I lost nearly 13 pounds in four days… The techniques being introduced of ways to maintain your body and how to care for your body are very helpful… When I had a colonic she said some of that stuff that came out of me had been in there for 20 years. I feel so much lighter and so much healthier and it was an opportunity to meet so many healthier people… I have been given a new lease on life. I want to look forward not back.”

Another testimony from Russ, of Marshall, Mi:

“The day I walked into the Creative Health Institute… well, I actually was hobbling for all of my joints and muscles were so painful, it would bring me to tears if I moved just right. Suffering from high levels of metal toxicity made me very sick and grumpy and I knew in my heart something had to be done. I signed up for the five-day detox program and didn’t know what to expect but understood if I wanted real results, I would have to follow the Ann Wigmore program to the Tee. Let me not mislead anyone, the first three days were very difficult but the support I had from the staff and others who were taking the program offered a hope of a newly sprouting seed and kept my head in the game. On the fourth day when I woke in the morning, I actually sprang out of bed and started moving about the room getting ready for the day and then realized… holy cow! my feet, ankles, knees and hips were virtually pain free! My range of motion had also greatly increased. My heartburn had vanished. My brain seemed to be bright and fogless.  On top of all that good stuff I had lost almost twelve pounds in toxic body weight in five days! Thank you, Ann! Thank you all at Creative Health Institute, for this truly has been a life-changing and educational experience for me.”

A testimony from Julia of Marshall:

“I just completed the 5-day detox at Creative Health Institute and have never felt this vibrant and healthy since childhood. The time I spent at CHI was transforming in the most positive way.  It is a place that overflows with love, giving of self, gratitude, positive energy, health, healing and life. Every day I felt more vibrant, alive and radiant and already after the second day I was excited to get out of bed and feel the blessings of the day. The lethargy I felt from eating the foods I had been eating prior to coming to CHI was eliminated immediately and my energy remained high throughout the day. Minor skin irritations/rashes I had battled with for the last month disappeared within 24 hours from entering the doors at CHI. The staff was so unbelievably inspiring — not only through learning about their own healings but also with their unselfish love and positive support they gave to the guests and their own colleagues. Thank you, thank you, thank you CHI for existing, for giving, for teaching and for life. You will forever be a part of my life.”

Wishing everyone the best day ever,

Learning to Live the Robust Raw Life

 

Ann Hartenbach of Winneconne Wisconsin had a gentle epiphany on Thursday after breakfast.

It was the day something shifted inside Ann, who has lost 18 pounds since arriving at Creative Health Institute May 1. Following the 10-Day-Detox Program she participated in, Ann became an intern. And this week she’s been getting experience preparing food in our raw kitchen.

She had been through detox programs at CHI in the past and reaped emotional, spiritual and physical rewards from them.  The 10-Day Detox she went through this month was extremely beneficial, too. But the experience she has been gaining behind the scenes in the kitchen since her internship began is really what’s helping Ann take her raw living foods lifestyle to another level.

“The kitchen supervisors create confidence and show how easy the lifestyle can be,” Ann said. “I feel I can go home now and know  what to buy and how long to keep it.”

Ann’s new-found confidence in the kitchen helped her to look at a bowl of leftover oatmeal from breakfast and see a future batch of oatmeal cookies. Before long, Ann was mixing together ingredients from an oatmeal cookie recipe developed for Creative Health Institutes own Master Chef and creator of the Raw Chef Level 1 Certification Class, Bobby Morgan.

Her cookies were a huge hit and other interns were eating them right out of the dehydrator.

It was her first batch of raw cookies. Now that she realizes it’s just as simple to make raw cookies as it is to make baked cookies, Ann expects to be doing quite a bit of “un”baking.

Ann recommends the CHI internship program for budding raw foodists who want to learn more at an accelerated pace.

And for those who can’t commit three months for an internship, she still recommends  the 10-Day Detox program.

“The detox is more than just losing weight. It clears toxins leaving you with a clear head and lighter feeling, ” Ann said.

She is so grateful for all she is learning at Creative Health Institute — and for her new confidence to continue the lifestyle when she returns home.

“Good tasting healthy food is in abundance,” Ann said. “Healthy food does not have to be without flare, spice and richness.”

Illinois Pastor Experiences Lazarus-Like Transformation At Creative Health Institute

“I can shout this thing from the mountain top.
It works.” ~ Rev. Eddie Hodges

A
few times during the weeks before Rev. Eddie Hodges visited Creative Health Institute he and his wife, Linda, worried he didn’t have long left in this world – unless a miracle happened.

Eddie had been in bed, barely able to move, for seven weeks. He couldn’t even brush his teeth, let alone stand up in the shower. His wife and children were beside themselves with worry despite their strong faith. Eddie has been the pastor of the Church of God on Maple Road in Joliet, Illinois for 16 years.

Finally an older doctor who promised not to prescribe drugs until he figured out the problem admitted Eddie to the hospital and ordered a complete round of tests. Weeks earlier Eddie saw an emergency room doctor who told him he wanted to treat him very heavily with drugs to knock out whatever was causing the symptoms. That doctor only wanted to treat the symptoms, Eddie said. He didn’t feel like the doctor really cared enough to figure out what was going on with him; so he threw away the drug prescriptions and stayed at home trying to recuperate with the love and assistance of his wife. No matter how long he rested under the loving care of his wife, his symptoms did not improve.

“He couldn’t do anything himself. Weight was falling off him daily. You looked at him one day and the next day it was a drastic change,” Linda said.  “We had to spoon feed him. I would have to help him to the bathtub and then get on my knees and wash him up.”

It had all started with a virus of some sort. His kids had it, too. But they recuperated after a few days. Eddie just got worse and worse. Finally Eddie visited the office of a doctor who seemed to really care about what was going on with him. He looked in Eddie’s blank eyes, took his blood pressure and told Eddie he couldn’t risk examining him any further at his office. Eddie was just too sick and needed to go to the hospital right away. On his fifth day as a patient after a battery of tests, the doctor told him he had septic blood, liver disease and an enlarged prostate. He gave Eddie a list of medications he could start taking to improve his condition. And then the old gentleman doctor sat back and looked Eddie right in the eyes.

“And he said, ‘but eating right could correct these problems.’” Eddie said with a happy look that seemingly mirrored the epiphany he had at the very moment the kindly physician leveled with him.  “That’s what the doctor said!”

When the doctor leveled with Eddie about the fact that he could improve his eating habits for better health, the Hodges knew just what to do.  Linda Hodges already had been to Creative Health Institute for a detox program and through the raw living food traditions of Dr. Ann Wigmore had healed the sciatic nerve problem that had been causing her severe pain for many months.

She had taken some of the things she had learned home with her when she left CHI. For instance; she and Eddie quite frequently had been drinking green energy smoothies for breakfast.  But when Eddie’s work life became extremely stressful because he was pastoring two churches in two states, some of his healthy habits slipped away. He wasn’t sleeping. And the stressful lifestyle apparently created the environment in which illness took hold.

As soon as the Hodges knew what the problem was – and that better dietary habits could help, they checked Eddie out of the hospital and packed up for a trip to detox at Creative Health Institute. It wasn’t an easy three and a half hour ride in the car for Eddie, who had trouble getting in and out of the car – let alone trying to walk.

“I could barely walk in through the door. I had no energy. I had no strength. I could barely move,” Eddie said.

The first night at Creative Health Institute, Eddie was able to eat some raw lasagna and a salad for dinner. But he didn’t have the energy to do an enema as guests typically do before going to bed. The next morning he got up and ate raw organic berries for breakfast – with green energy smoothie. He rested quite a bit during the next few days but could also feel his energy coming back. He started participating in morning rebounding exercises on the miniature trampolines with other guests.

And on the fifth day at CHI he walked outside for a whole mile.

Since then he’s been walking and rebounding every day. Days before the Hodges returned home following their three-week stay at Creative Health Institute, Eddie was highly energetic during morning rebounding and inspiring everyone – including the class teacher – to “do more jumping jacks.” His balance was great. His voice was loud and clear — and there was joy in his eyes that might make you think about Lazarus in the bible.

“God showed mercy on me,” Eddie said. “This way of eating is awesome. It is beyond your imagination. It is mind blowing how you can just eat properly and it will correct issues in your body.

“I can shout this thing from the mountain top. It works.”

Linda said she overjoyed that her husband’s health has returned and happy about his new commitment to the raw living foods lifestyle.

She said they’ll be back at Creative Health Institute again.

“This truly is a haven of rest,” she said.

Sending love and blessingsto all our friends and family

Digestion takes up 85 to 90% of the body’s energy and the average person carries around in their bowel 10–15 pounds of toxic waste that is poisoning. The bowel feeds the blood and the blood feeds every cell, tissue and organ in the entire body. Toxicity in the bowel and digestive tract is what leads to premature aging and degenerative disease. Dr. Ann Wigmore said, “All disease starts in the bowel.”

 


We have designed the CHI 3-Day Juice Fast and Cleansing Retreat  to “turn back the hands of time, ” strengthen your immune system, cleanse your cells, while detoxifying and simultaneously rebuilding your body’s systems. This program is truly amazing in that you will receive more nutrition during this 3-day fast than you would normally receive from eating the Standard American Diet for a whole week.  The effectiveness of  this juice fast is steeped in the original traditions of Dr. Ann Wigmore’s programs for detoxification, rejuvenation and weight loss.

Juice fasting allows the body to concentrate its resources on thorough healing. On the CHI supervised juice fast you will eat no solid foods for three days because solid food slows or even stops the detoxification process.You will consume cleansing and nourishing juiced fruits and vegetables that detoxify body while rebuilding its core systems.

As the juice cleanse begins to work its “magic,” pounds of toxic accumulations are released from the alimentary canal, liver, kidneys, blood, lymphatic system and colon. This allows the entire body to detoxify and function more efficiently.

Along with the physical detoxification you will also remove stress and dis-ease causing “toxic” emotions. So come join us and reclaim your right to vibrant health.
