Creative Health Institute Is A Sanctuary

One of the activities we enjoy at Creative Health is our morning exercise and lymphasize classes. During these classes we perfom specially designed exercises that help us to strengthen our lymphatic system.

Bobby Morgan, who is our instructor is a Raw Vegan Athlete who pratices holisitc health. His mentoring ability, understanding of raw foods, herbs and nutrition helps support our guest on their journey to health.  

Many of the men and women who come to CHI come here to experience the lifestyle and the diet, but theres more; Everyday guests attend classes and also can have private counseling sessions with the instructors.  

 Our raw live foods are amazing and by the time our guests leave the are prepared to change their lifestyles and turnback the hands of time. Even many of the guests with Type 2 Diabetes find there blood sugar normalizing during their 10 day detox with most being able to go home and cure themselves of their Type 2 Diabetes, in as little as 28 days.

Wishing all of our readers a wonderous day!

CHI DETOX – Family Style

Jimmy Ehrhart, 15


Jessica Ehrhart, 12

Standing in front of a small group of Creative Health Institute guests with a Sharpie in hand and a smile on his face, Jimmy Ehrhart, 15, recorded numbers on a large pad of paper propped upon an easel.

“I feel great right now,” Jimmy told the other guests who were going through a 10-day detox with him. It was the beginning of Day 8 and relief had come for Jimmy and others who had experienced the typical uncomfortable symptoms people have when they withdraw from sugar, caffeine, high-protein and high-fat foods.  “I feel better than I have ever felt—honestly.”

The Camden, Michigan, teen was front-and-center for the morning and happy about the progress everybody was making  with the detox. Jimmy came to CHI with his younger sister, older brother, mother and grandfather. All of them wanted to make significant changes to their diets and health. They decided to go raw after reading books such as Victoria Boutenko’s Raw Family and watching videos including Thirty Days Raw.  Now that their detox at CHI is nearly complete, the family agrees visiting our nutritional education center in Hodunk, Michigan,  has been one of the the best things they’ve ever done together.

Jessica Ehrhart, 12, said she plans to spread the word about the great time she’s had with her family and new friends at  Creative Health Institute.

“I would like to see lots of families come here. I wish everyone in the world could do it because then everyone would just be healthy,” Jessica said. “Fast foods are gross!”

After seeing the videos and reading the books his mother exposed the family to in preparation of their detox, Jimmy still was a bit skeptical about how much a raw food diet could affect him. He was willing to give raw living foods a try because he had some health concerns and wanted to see what a difference the Ann Wigmore way of life could make. Jimmy said for several years he has suffered from asthma, allergies, trouble sleeping, snoring and being overweight.  It’s been tough for him to join the fun and games kids his age typically enjoy.

“I couldn’t play sports.  My friends, they all try to run around town and I have a hard time keeping up to them with the asthma, ” Jimmy said. “It is embarrassing to stay over a friend’s house because I snore so loud.”

Now Jimmy feels a new hope and expects he’ll be able to participate more fully in teenage activities he sees others enjoy.  His snoring stopped right away. He’s been sleeping well every night and his asthma hasn’t been bothering him at all.  He’s been exercising every day and says he feels hopeful that he’ll be able to keep up with his friends in basketball, football and baseball. He has always tried to participate in sports but due to his health issues he has spent most of his time on the bench.

Jimmy also had a problem with food allergies.  He said he especially seemed to be allergic to nuts, particularly cashews. At CHI he has found he can eat all different kinds of nuts without any allergic reaction. He said he believes it’s because he had been eating nuts that were not organic and all of the food at the center is organic.  He said he was really happy to learn that eating a raw food diet doesn’t mean a life-sentence of “boring salads.” He was especially impressed with a raw cashew-cheese-based blueberry cheesecake an intern made one night for a CHI guest who was celebrating her birthday during the detox.

Jessica said all along she was excited to come to the Creative Health Institute with her family. She said she knew she needed to make some changes in her life and she was ready to move forward.

“I would like to improve my asthma and coming here definitely helped it,” she said. “I was always on the couch. I couldn’t breathe so I always had to have an inhaler wherever I went. It is really horrible.”

Jessica hasn’t had to use her inhaler once during the 10-day detox.  On day eight she reported feeling better than she has felt in a very long time. She said she has “tons” of energy and now she can breath without wheezing — something she hasn’t been able to do since she was a small child.

One of Jessica’s favorite things about the 10-day detox at CHI has been the cooking lessons. Jessica helped make marinara sauce to serve at dinner one night and she said she was surprised by how simple and tasty it was. She also has enjoyed rebounding (jumping on a miniature trampoline) in the morning and sitting in the banya (our Russian-style sauna). She said she really wants to come back for the raw chef classes to learn how to make gourmet raw living foods.

Jimmy and Jessica’s mother, Kimberly Ehrhart, said she’s very happy her family came to CHI together to detox with raw living food. She’s eager for her next visit and suggesting to staff that she’d like to see a CHI reunion for guests in the summer.

“I would highly suggest the 10-day detox,” Kimberly said.  “It’s more than cleansing for your body and mind, and it’s more than just new relationships — it’s family.”

A Dozen Great Reasons Why We Do Lymphatic Exercise At Creative Health Institute

A Dozen Great Reasons Why We  Do Lymphatic Exercise At Creative Health Institute

Lymphacizing” – Lymphatic Exercise for Vibrant Health…  Mention the heart or the cardiovascular system and most people have a pretty good idea of what that is and how it functions. Mention the lymphatic system which is vitally important to our health and you will find most people don’t understand much about it; Some have not even heard of it. The lymph system is interactive with every organ, and is directly related to immune function and efficiency.

  1. FUN FACTS ABOUT THE LYMPH SYSTEM
    It is a protector and a defense mechanism against infection, viruses, bacteria, fungi, and disease.
  2. The lymphatic system is not connected to the heart, so it has to rely upon some other activity to create the necessary pumping action it needs to circulate.
  3. It is comprised of fluid, vessels, ducts and various other organs and structures.
  4. It clears toxins, wastes, excess fluids, and infection from all tissues of the body through proper flow and drainage, but only if this essential system is functioning at its peak efficiency.
  5. Unlike the cardiovascular system which delivers life-giving oxygen and nutrients to all the organs and cells of the body, and is connected to a pump – the heart; The lymphatic system has no automatic pump.
  6. The lymphatic system is filled with millions of one-way valves that allow lymph fluid to flow in only one direction – usually upward, away from gravity. Almost anything that can stimulate the movement of lymph fluid inside the lymph vessels of the system is healthy, but the most efficient way to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid is rebounding.
  7.  The lymphatic system is  connected to every cell and organ of the body, but its function is completely different from that of the cardiovascular system. It is the “garbage collector”, the internal vacuum cleaner that sucks up metabolic garbage, toxins, and excess fluid from the extracellular fluid of every organ.
  8. If the lymph systems flow is impaired, the fluid becomes toxic. The parts of the body that rely on it for elimination become less efficient and sluggish as they fill with their own waste.
  9. The lymph system can becomea breeding ground for infection, whe it become sluggish
  10. When toxic lymph fluid enters the bloodstream, as is part of the normal process, infection can now spread to any organ or part of the body. Many viruses, bacteria, and parasites stay locked within the lymphatic system when these conditions are present. The result: physical ailments, degenerative disease, hastening of the aging process, even death.
  11. The three most important methods of lymphatic circulation are external massage, muscle activity, and vigorous exercise.
  12. Here at Creative Health Institute we do a half hour of rebounding every morning. Rebounding’s up and down rhythmic bouncing causes all of the one-way valves to open and close simultaneously, increasing lymph flow as much as fifteen times, during the simple half hour lymphasizing workout!
  13. Lymphasizing hels  the body eliminate foreign matter from one part of the body to another. Most of us thinks only about our eliminative organs, such as the bowels, kidneys, or lungs, but toxins also are elimated via  joints, lymph system and our larges organ the skin.

SYMPTOMS

Many people have a badly congested lymphatic system and don’t even know it. In the U.S., the lymphatic system is the most over-looked system of the human body. In Europe, stimulation of the lymph flow is the fourth most commonly prescribed medical treatment. Most US health-care practitioners seldom consider the lymphatic system’s critical role in preventing illness, or its importance to the overall healing process. Some of the organs that are part of the lymphatic system are lymph nodes, lymph veins, tonsils, adenoids, appendix, and the spleen… and you know what happens to those parts of the body whenever surgeons get close to them. Swollen glands, with which most of us are familiar, are symptomatic of blocked lymph nodes, which indicate a breakdown in the functioning of the lymphatic system. Other examples of congested lymphatics are: Allergies, chronic sinusitis, heart disease, eczema and other skin conditions, loss of energy, fibrocystic disease, chronic fatigue, repetitive parasitic infections, MS, edema, lupus, erythematosis, inflammation, high blood pressure, viral infections, puffy eyes, bacterial infections, low back pain, cancer, ear or balance problems, arthritis, headaches, cellulite, excessive sweating, obesity, and more! Rebound exercise is one of the most efficient exercises for stimulating lymph flow and thats why we meet every morning to”Lymphacizie.”

Wishing everyone the best health and lives filled with love and grace.
