Some people think of Spring and Summer as the time to cleanse their bodies by eating lighter, eating more fruit, eating primarily or only raw foods, drinking freshly made juices, juice fasting, juice feasting, taking herbal concoctions. I have done all of these things and more over the past twenty five plus years. It just made sense. I really felt the need. What I did not realize was that the body is already in a stronger cleansing mode during Spring and Summer. I did not realize I was putting more pressure on my body by increasing the consumption of  fruits,  juicing fruits and vegetables and eating raw foods. Eating this way just made sense. I now realize it is more important to simplify and not add more burden to our bodies organs of elimination. What seemed like lightening up was actually creating a cascade of toxin pouring out of organs and tissues into my blood stream and  my already unhealthy gut. This is where the genius of taking the right amounts of Clay and certain types of  herbs is important for long term success in healing.

The Macrobiotic Approach of not eating raw fruits and vegetables daily in significant quantities, because they are  too cleansing and hard to digest, does make sense for many. This is especially true for those who are highly symptomatic. Unfortunately, most people misinterpret the Macro Diet as an invitation to amp up their complex carbs. In transitioning from The Standard American Diet to Macro it is understandable that people over eat better quality carbs to replace the refined ones to deal with their cravings. Hands down, no matter how you go about Macro, it is far healthier than The Standard American Diet, just by what it excludes.


Important point here: At this time in the world diet upgrades alone are not capable of creating deep healing for most anybody. I experience this is as being true for myself as an individual and practitioner. The old time cleansing in Spring and Summer, with the protocols I mentioned before, may have or may not have healed some cases of deep illness in centuries or decades past. In this present time, when our environment is constantly being barraged with toxins, and is barraging us with elements our bodies can not process, it is truly evident that healing with diet, as the primary protocol, does not work. A primary example being that people go on a juice feast, juice fast or smoothie cleanse and end up on antibiotics soon after because they became sick or highly symptomatic. The Macro Approach needs some help in addressing deeper cleansing. Clay, herbs and a natural antibiotic substance [Colloidal Silver is one] are answers that I can personally say yields results. What results? A better functioning gut to assure better assured cellular cleansing.  Healing plays out differently for every single person who partakes on The Unique Healing Program. That is all I got. You have to try The UHP for yourself.


In summary, what seems intuitively correct for many, in my experience with myself and others, is not the way to cure illness and heal the deepest recesses of our cells, organs, tissues and blood. Check out The Unique Healing Program Donna Pessin. The UHP may challenge your every impression and belief about what healing is and can be. I hope it does. I hope you take the time to give The Unique Healing Program a chance. It is worth it, but you need to trust and have faith in your decision to do it. Through this process you will begin to understand your own instincts and experiences. This program will question all of what you think you know about many things. I can tell you one thing for sure, and that is that  it takes time and experience on The UHP to truly understand how it works. It is not an easy process, but I don’t think anything we learn from is an initial slam dunk.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
