July 2023 Newsletter

When it comes to food, the universal truth we stand by, the principle that applies to everyone, is that everyone is different.😊 With more than 20 thousand genes orchestrating the activities of 30 trillion cells, some variation in the biochemical machines our meals need to fuel is not surprising.

That’s where energy testing comes in. You can align what you eat with what you need. Our motto in this realm is “Test before you ingest.”

David asks Donna: “If I heat the pizza in the freezer, will my body welcome it?” Donna energy tests him on spleen meridian as he touches the pizza box, which holds the energy of the pizza. The test shows weak. His body won’t digest it well. “Darn” thinks David, “I really want that pizza! But the body doesn’t lie.” On the other hand, the mind schemes. “Hmmm,” he thinks, what if I first have some salad?” The energy test says yes to the salad. Then it says yes to the pizza with salad first. David is ready for a guilt-free and nutritious meal, pizza and all!

Our e-letter staff asked us to go with the theme of this month’s issue by listing some of our favorite foods. The problem with that plan is that the foods that best nourish us won’t best nourish you. Even between us, our nutritional needs are very different. Donna varies what she eats so much that it is almost impossible to shop for her. David’s diet has so little variation that Donna would find it boring.

The breakfast that is perfect one morning for Donna will be toxic for her the next. David can have the same apple, banana, and Nature’s Path Coconut and Cashew Butter granola cereal topped with mixed nuts every morning for months. Donna needs breakfast by 7 a.m. or she will find herself flirting with low blood sugar. And she gets a “food hangover” if she has much to eat after 3 p.m. When not teaching, David begins writing in the early morning and doesn’t take in a morsel until 10 or 11. He can have his second meal (we both have only two meals/day) as late as he wants.

Okay, with all that said, here are some of the rare foods that are favorites for both of us: pecan pie with vanilla ice cream, salads with avocado and pine nuts, sharp cheddar cheese, guacamole, Whole Foods cranberry tuna sandwiches, pho soup, and tempura shrimp. Eat well. Test often.

Energy Medicine in Action

A Grateful New Mom Discovers the Astounding Power of Energy Medicine

Have you ever felt helpless when your child's in pain?

New mom, Meredith Brown, was feeling helpless and frustrated. She’d tried everything she could think of to soothe her daughter’s severe stomach bug and nausea, but nothing worked. Then, she remembered her copy of Energy Medicine, which she had purchased some years ago. What happened next was nothing short of astounding as Meredith helped her little girl shift from feeling sick to her stomach to sleeping peacefully in 5 minutes! Read more >>>

How Donna Helped a Homeless Man Heal

It All Began with Changing The Energy of His Food

Some of you have heard of the infamous 7-Eleven story. It is a profound story that is close to Donna’s heart. Years ago, when she was teaching a series of in-person classes in Ashland, Oregon, Donna noticed a stranger would come in and stand in the back of the room. The man was disheveled and unwashed, his skin was pale, and he was gaunt from lack of good nutrition. It was clear that this poor man was homeless. Donna was immediately drawn to help him and found out that he lived outside a nearby 7-Eleven. When he told her that he ate straight out of the dumpster, she was horrified and saddened. She showed him how to do a simple method to change the energy of food. Neither one of them could have predicted that this simple exchange would change the man’s life forever. Read more >>>

Food & The Five Elements

Making Aligned Food Choices Based on Your Element

The Five Elements is an extraordinarily perceptive and elegant framework for understanding yourself and others. Mapped out by Chinese physicians more than 2,000 years ago, each of the Five Elements -- Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal -- resonates with every single person on the planet. Knowing your element is immensely helpful in making choices for your highest good, including choices related to food.😃 Read more >>>
