Dr Elson Haas, one of the founders of the Integrative Medicine movement is my guest on today’s podcast. What a treat! Something that has increased in need, while our environment and food has become more and more polluted is detoxification. Our biology was not designed for this morning world and the ol’ “We don’t need to detox, that’s what our liver is for” just doesn’t fly. One form of detoxification that has become popular over the past few decades is juice fasting so I wanted to look into this more deeply with a medical doctor to understand why. Research shows our bodies thrive on bringing ‘lean times’ in the mix and as long as you’ve spoken to your practitioner and don’t suffer adrenal / cortisol issues, then you may want to look at doing a juice fast. Today we explore what got Dr Haas interested in doing a juice cleanse, how it impacted him as a Doctor and what he then went on to study to bring a more holistic approach to supporting his patients.  We also discuss    When the perfect time of the lunar cycle/year is to do a juice fast. What the keys to overall health are after his many books and decades of medical practice. How to rely less on uppers and downers - chemical OR natural!  How to make lifestyle habit change stick in your life.  How to know what foods work for us ultimately?  What the 3 things Elson wants you to do this week to be your best thriving self.      It’s a great show and don’t forget to make the most of this month’s podcast sponsor offer over at lowtoxlife.com/podcast  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Are you looking for simple ways to balance your mind, body, and soul? Today's guest, Dr. Elson Haas, approaches diagnosis and treatment with the maxim "Lifestyle first, Natural therapies next, drugs or surgery last." His unique integration of Natural, Eastern, and Western medical approaches, which he calls NEW Medicine, is built on restoring proper body physiology and supporting healthy cells and tissues to promote healing. It recognizes proper nutrition as the cornerstone of health and also includes elimination diets and detoxification practices, often with a seasonal focus. Dr. Haas has practiced this philosophy for more than 40 years in his work as an integrative family physician, incorporating these practices within an insurance model at his clinic, the Preventive Medical Center of Marin in San Rafael, CA, where he and an extensive team of practitioners and staff have provided care to their patients since 1984. In this episode, Dr. Haas explains how, as humans, we are on this planet to learn and grow. When we block that growth, we create resistance in the body. Traditional Chinese medicine sees this very quickly, things need to flow through our bodies. Dr. Haas reveals the 5 keys to staying healthy: Nutrition: eat wholesome foods, avoid junk + chemicals. Exercise: finding something that we actually like to do. Sleep: we need to sleep to recharge ourselves + get energy. Stress: learn how to get along with people + how not to get along with people. Attitude: what is our approach to the world + ourselves? Later, Dr. Haas reveals methods of getting off of caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and other medicines and getting back to our own natural energies.
