How do you stay calm, happy and healthy in a world where schedules seem busier than ever?
Heather is joined by Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz to discuss the 3-step practical system that Mona Lisa and Louise Hay pioneered in their two books together. Learn the latest strategies for depression, anxiety, addictions, memory issues and more from their newest book, You Can Heal Your Mind.
Special Guest: Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz
Mona Lisa Schulz (Dr. Mona Lisa), is a medical intuitive. Dr. Schulz received her doctorates, an MD and a PhD (Behavioral Neuroscience) from Boston University’s School of Medicine in 1993.
In addition to her extensive background in health and brain research, Dr. Schulz has been a practicing medical intuitive since 1987. During a medical intuitive consultation, knowing only someone’s name and age, Mona Lisa discerns both a person’s physical condition and the emotional state of his or her life, explaining how the two are linked.
Dr. Schulz teaches us how to become aware of how our symptoms of illness are part of our intuition network, letting us know when something in our lives is out of balance.
During a medical intuitive consultation, there is no physician/patient relationship, nor is any psychotherapy being performed. Mona Lisa will educate you in how specific emotional situations in your life are associated with the increased risk of illness in a specific organ in your body. One of the many joys in Dr. Mona Lisa’s life is teaching individuals how to acknowledge, trust, and develop their intuitive skills.
Brain Health: Tips to Heal Your Mind
Heal Your Mind – Dr. Mona Lisa’s new book with Louise Hay, Heal Your Mind, is also an excellent resource to heal body, mind, and spirit.
Heal Your Body – Loving Yourself to Great Health and The Bone Broth Secret. The nutritional tips below are included in both books, with many recipes to support your body in attaining a strong foundation for mind-body-spirit health. A grounded, nourished body gives you the courage and stamina to do what you came here to do and take loving actions for yourself.
Medical Intuition & Nutrition Tips to Heal Your Mind
Issues with the mind are symptoms – memory, depression, anxiety, addictions, are part of your intuitive guidance system. Symptoms are distractions, trying to get your attention. Then you have to figure out what your intuition is telling you. The seven chakras or emotional centers are a great system for honing in on what the symptoms are telling you.
The seven chakras are familiar to many people. Dr. Mona Lisa thinks of them as seven emotional centers (which also include energy). The emotional centers are made up of your life situation and how it affects certain areas of your body.
Here are the seven chakras or emotional centers and related body region:
- First Center – bones, blood, immune system, skin, joints, and muscle. The physical region is affected by the health of your family or other groups of people. (If you have symptoms here, ask yourself: What’s my family like? Do I have a lot of friends? Do I feel safe and secure in my world?)
- Second Center – reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries, vagina, prostate, testes), lower back, hips and bladder. This area is associated with concerns about love and money. (If you have second center symptoms, ask yourself: Am I depressed about a relationship? Frustrated about my sex life? And how about those finances – am I worried or stressed about money?)
- Third Center – digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder, colon, rectum), metabolism, pancreas, kidneys, body image. This area is influenced by self-esteem, work, and feeling good enough. (If you have third center symptoms, ask yourself: How is that job going? What is the state of my self-esteem: do I think I’m fat? Do I hate my hair? Do I find myself attractive?)
- Fourth Center – heart, breast, lungs. This region has to do with health, nurturance, and partnerships. (For symptoms in this center, like cholesterol issues, hypertension, heart palpitations or breast lumps, ask yourself: What are my partnerships like? What is my relationship like with my mother, my children?)
- Fifth Center – neck, thyroid, mouth, teeth, jaw. This area is influenced by our communication style and our healthy capacity to handle timing. (If you have fifth center symptoms, like neck pain, thyroid problems, TMJ problems, gum or tooth disease, ask yourself if communication is an issue for you.)
- Sixth Center – head, eyes, ears, brain. This area relates to perception, thought, and basic mental health. (Do you have symptoms like dizziness, vertigo, dry eyes, headaches, or other sixth center concerns? You may have a problem with how you see the world and your ability to change how you respond to it.)
- Seventh Center – life-threatening illnesses, or events in our lives that bring us to our knees. Not a discrete area of the physical body, but affecting many areas of the body, this region has to do with spirituality and life purpose. (In this center, chronic, hard to treat, even life-threatening illnesses force you to focus on what your purpose in life is. Or have you lost your purpose? Lost your focus? And what is the quality of your spiritual life?)
How to Listen to Your Body’s Intuition
Your body will tell you, through health symptoms, when areas in these emotional centers are doing well or not so well. Emotions can create physical symptoms and physical symptoms (your body) can affect your mind. Health challenges are not in the mind or body, but simultaneous. So it’s important to treat the brain and the body. Emotions register as symptoms in your body and the beginning of illness in your body may be first noticed only as an emotion like fear, anger, sadness, or brain fog
Louise Hay’s work on health challenges and associated affirmations was brilliant. In fact, as Louise found, most health challenges arise from too much of three common emotions:
- Sadness, which can deepen into depression
- Fear, which can turn into panic and anxiety
- Anger, which can turn to frustration and meltdown
Interestingly, these two emotions are often deficient in health challenges:
The question is, how do you learn to intuitively assess where you have a deficiency in joy and love and too much sadness, fear, or anger? One very helpful technique is to learn how to listen for the beginning of an emotion, like sadness, before it deepens into depression. Here’s a process to follow:
- Express the emotion.
- Name it – the act of naming the emotion you are feeling allows you to bring it from your right (intuitive/feeling brain) to left (logical/thinking) brain.
- Respond to it.
How to Use Nutrition to Resolve Common Deficiencies
Here are some common supplements and foods that are especially helpful for helping your body and mind heal:
- Sublingual B12, like Seeking Health Active B12. Put it under your lip or tongue and allow to dissolve as slowly as possible. B12 can help with digestion, energy, better sleep, better moods, nerve regeneration and organ health.
- Minerals: Anderson’s Sea MD – add some drops to water (up to one dropperful spread out over all of your glasses of water for the day). Adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues and hormone imbalances are common. A wide base of minerals can help with adrenal and thyroid issues. Minerals can also help keep you calm, help you sleep better and protect your energy if you are hypersensitive, intuitive, or psychic.
- Get an HTMA to assess your mineral levels, particularly zinc and copper (and the zinc-copper ratio). Zinc/Copper ratio issues can affect the brain (anxiety, depression).
- Essential fatty acids from animal fats (raw organic grassfed butter or ghee, grass/pasture-fed animal fats like beef tallow, pork lard, chicken schmaltz and duck fat). Also plant fats like extra virgin olive oil, unrefined flax seed oil and hemp seed oil.
- Antioxidants help boost your energy at the cellular level. Think fruits and vegetables in the colors of the rainbow.
- Adaptogens are helpful for dealing with mind and body stress, evening things out. Rhodiola and ginko biloba are great options. Other options are holy basil, Siberian ginseng, schisandra, and ashwaganda.
- First Chakra: Collagen – Bone broth provides healing collagen, the most abundant protein in the body that provides first chakra support, reduces inflammation, aids weight loss and has gut-healing benefits. Think of collagen as “the great supporter,” because it holds everything in the body up and together.
