Wellness Pioneer Anna Bjurstam talked with mentor Dr. Alberto Villoldo about his life-changing program Grow a New Body and the most effective ways he’s discovered to upgrade our bodies, our brains and our health.
Dr. Villoldo shared his viewpoint that this pandemic is reminding us that we are interconnected with nature and cannot be separated. We are part of a biological process right now called evolution, where our bodies are mixing with viruses. As in any evolutionary process, there is always an opportunity to become stronger and fitter.
During his own health crisis, he discovered that following years of traveling the world teaching and researching, he had picked up a variety of parasites and viruses and that these parasites had attacked his liver, his heart and his brain. Doctors recommended a liver transplant but as he joked, “New brains are hard to find!”
He used Western medicine to kill the parasites but he knew that to regenerate his body and brain, he’d have to go beyond the allopathic model of curing diseases to an indigenous model of energy medicine.
Many detox programs focus solely on the liver for example but it’s essential to detox the mind and brain as well. Our minds and brains are filled with worries, angst, toxins, and the news. How do we detox the brain?
One of the best ways is to get good sleep, Dr. Villoldo shared. Every species sleeps and one of the primary reasons is so it can detox the brain. During sleep, cerebrospinal fluid flushes the brain to cleanse it of toxins.
But sleep is just the beginning. We need to detox our thoughts and emotions too. We need to forgive and ask to be forgiven. Then you have to cultivate gratitude and thank our difficulties for teaching us important lessons.
What you eat is foundational as well. Sugar is a big problem as it accelerates aging and clogs cells. It’s buried in so many foods, though, so it’s easy to get addicted and many of us find ourselves unconsciously reaching for cookies and sweets, especially when we are stressed. If you find yourself doing this, it could be a sign that you have a yeast overgrowth like Candida. Saccharomyces Boulardii is an effective probiotic that can help our gut repair from yeast overgrowth and reduce our sugar cravings.
Dr. Villoldo shared his recipe for Making S. Boulardii at home.
Our DNA knows how to grow a new body because it grew a new body once before. Certain foods, supplements, meditation and practices with the energy field will help your body repair and regenerate itself
What Dr. Villoldo learned first-hand is that when you detox the field and then upgrade the field through energy medicine, and then you feed the body the highest quality nutrients, you upgrade the body and improve your chances of staying healthy or recovering from illnesses.
Energy medicine is a journey in healing. It is not an intervention to cure a disease. A powerful component is a soul retrieval where we heal trauma by going back to the source of an injury. We call back the part of ourselves that fled because the moment was too painful. In the Amazon, it’s called a soul part so we coax it back during a session and reinstall it and this changes limiting beliefs that were caused by that earlier traumatic experience.
After a Soul Retrieval, we do a Destiny Retrieval where we create a new destiny for ourselves and for our planet. We do this all the time when we are considering a future scenario, like a new job or a new home but in a session, we get very targeted about your larger vision and purpose.
We have a pause right now and this can be a valuable time to consider our purpose and our destiny and dream our destiny into being on our own. When our nervous system or our thoughts do run away with us, Dr. Villoldo shared a very simple and short practice to calm ourselves down so we can function at our best.
