Effective Fasting with Food

Effective Fasting with Food

The Regenerative Benefits of the 5-Day Mimic Fast

I’m sure we’ve all made New Year’s resolutions for this coming year, and I bet that many of those resolutions aspire to vibrant health.

At Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine, my team and I started off the new year with a giant healthy step. We pledged to lose weight, rejuvenate and regenerate ourselves by following the 5-Day Mimic Fast we offer.

If you haven’t yet heard about this highly effective doctor-supervised dietary program—100% plant-based, gluten-free, non-GMO and zero artificial additives—let me fill you in. On top of weight loss and energy gain, the program promotes healthy aging and metabolic health. No starving or long-term dieting required! All of us at Santa Fe Soul quickly noticed after our 5-Day Mimic Fast that we had more energy and metabolic balance and, best of all, a noticeable decrease in our waistlines.

The 5-Day Mimic Fast works by switching your body into fasting mode, where your cells gain all the benefits of fasting but you can still eat food, in a limited amount.  The 5-day food kit includes foods measured in exact quantities and combinations to provide nourishment. Your body, however, doesn’t recognize these micro- and macro-nutrients as food, and so it mimics a fasting state. While your body doesn’t recognize these foods, you’ll be grateful for the items for each day included in your box, including dried soup blends, cocoa and nut bars, kale flax crackers, beverages and several supplements, all designed to nourish you and support your optimal health.

This “pro-longevity” program is the brainchild of Dr. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. His research has shown that in addition to weight loss and other benefits, this 5-Day Mimic Fast can reduce your blood pressure, increase your resistance to stress and improve cognitive performance. Even better, studies show that weight loss remains steady after resuming a regular diet.

While we chose to kick off 2021 with this healthy, regenerative start, you can do the 5-Day Mimic Fast any time of year—each time you’re ready to renew your mind, body and spirit and gain the benefits of eliminating fat without starving in just five days.

If you would like to learn more about the advantages of this 5-Day Mimic Fast, watch this free 30-Minute Video with Dr. Christi Alsop of Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine, here.

All we need is your email to access this free webinar.  In addition, we will give you access to all the exciting new regenerative science-based programs we offer, with the goal to restore, renew and revive your health and lifestyle. Feel free to share this link with a friend, since information access is completely free.

When ready to order your own 5-Day Mimic Fast turn-key program directly, you can get access anytime, online 24/7 and receive an ongoing 15% discount after watching our doctors short, free online webinar here.

A New You, in this New Year

A New You, in this New Year

Gain Vibrant Health at Santa Fe Soul

I’m sure we’ve all made New Year’s resolutions for this coming year, and I bet that many of those resolutions aspire to vibrant health.

At Santa Fe Soul, Center for Regenerative Medicine, we look forward to collaborating with you to achieve your health goals. If you want to regain optimal health and turn back the clock on aging, let me tell you about the revolutionary system I’ve created called A.R.T. (Amplified Regenerative Therapies). Using oxidative therapies, IV infusion and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, we help you discover and expand your healthiest self, and empower you to take charge of your own healing, without risky surgeries and exposure to harsh, harmful chemicals.

PRP is one of regenerative medicine’s most popular and versatile therapies, using platelet-rich plasma, an injectable substance containing platelets and their growth factors from your blood. PRP can help with sexual rejuvenation and incontinence; restore healthy hair and facial tissue; and heal injuries in joints and soft tissues, among many other benefits.

The popular Vampire Facelift®, uses PRP to stimulate blood flow to areas on the face, producing new cells and tissues to restore healthy, vibrant skin and reduce or eliminate wrinkles, lines and scars. Imagine looking younger in 2021, even after all the stress of 2020! You can, with just a 30-minute procedure that typically allows you to return to your daily activities as soon as you’re done.

Here’s what our clients are saying:

“I am in love with my first PRP Facelift with Dr. Benson.  Immediately I looked in the mirror and saw a woman who looked 10 years younger. I just don’t want a surgical face lift and I am glad there is this natural solution.  I highly recommend Dr. Benson and her artistic approach to sculpting beauty.” — D.P., Santa Fe

The PRP therapies for sexual rejuvenation can be life-changing. For women, the Orgasm Shot, or O-Shot®, is an effective, simple procedure to improve libido and sexual function, reverse incontinence and relieve pelvic pain. For men, the Priapus Shot, or P-Shot® aids in healing and tissue repair, optimizing sexual function, resolving ED and improving overall health.

Regenerative medicine offers many other powerful therapies that can transform your health. As a regenerative medicine specialist, I am always happy to evaluate your overall health to determine whether regenerative medicine can help you reach your goals. Contact me and my team at Santa Fe Soul this new year and we’ll get started on those New Year resolutions!

Schedule an appointment at Santa Fe Soul and discover how A.R.T. can help you through the holiday season and continue to live a regenerative lifestyle while celebrating. If you prefer an online videoconference, contact us to schedule your telehealth appointment.

The Joys of Giving Back

The Joys of Giving Back

“For it is in giving that we receive.”

Quote by: St. Francis of Assisi

As this challenging year winds down, our thoughts turn to giving.  There are holiday presents to find and wrap for family and friends and cookies to bake and share, along with greeting cards to send. But there’s another way to give, one which calls us to be of service to others and to our community.

Giving back by helping others provides a world of well-being, and not just to those we are helping.

Studies have shown that giving back helps our health, boosting happiness and self-esteem and decreasing depression, which can strike during the holidays. Lending a hand to a struggling stranger can show that us that we have the ability to transform others, as well as the world. And giving back ultimately gives us a sense that we matter.

If you haven’t yet discovered the joys of giving back, it’s easy to connect with places in your community that need help. You could volunteer at a local food pantry or with Big Brothers, Big Sisters. Become a mentor through a school or city program, or help out at a homeless shelter. Join a trail maintenance crew, pitch in at an animal shelter or simply connect with an elderly neighbor on your street and provide companionship. The opportunities for giving back are endless, and so are the rewards.  Once you’ve started, don’t be surprised that you’ll want to volunteer throughout the year, not just during the holidays,

I find great joy in giving back through sharing my 30 years of clinical experience with others. In addition to working with patients in Santa Fe as well as around the country and the world, I enjoy offering complimentary treatments to demonstrate the healing power of the traditional and alternative medicine we offer at Santa Fe Soul Center for Optimal Health, now celebrating 15 years.

 

The Open Houses we hold at Santa Fe Soul Center showcase the impressive array of natural science-backed solutions that we offer, from acupuncture and herbs to IV infusion and more. Guests get a chance to learn about A.R.T. (Amplified Regenerative Therapies), the revolutionary program I founded to turn degeneration into regeneration using oxidative therapies, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and other regenerative medicine strategies, all promoting a youthful, healthy lifestyle. And visitors always love trying out our ART Lab, an inspiring place to optimize your brain and body with cutting-edge wellness technology.

 

Although this holiday season won’t be like any other, we can brighten each and every moment by showing others how much we care.  Won’t you join me in giving back to those we love and to those who need love? Happy Healthful Holidays!

Schedule an appointment at Santa Fe Soul and discover how A.R.T. can help you through the holiday season and continue to live a regenerative lifestyle while celebrating. If you prefer an online videoconference, contact us to schedule your telehealth appointment.

Heading into Fall with Full Health at Santa Fe Soul

Heading into Fall with Full Health

at Santa Fe Soul, by Dr. Robyn Benson

Whether you eagerly embrace the start of fall or you have a hard time saying goodbye to summer, the change in seasons affects us all.

Colder weather and less sunlight can leave us feeling tired, foggy, depressed and lethargic. Not to mention the time change, which takes place on November 1 this year. Setting the clocks back by one hour can play havoc with our body’s inner clock, leaving us frazzled for days as we adjust to fewer hours of daylight, and to falling asleep and waking up according to a whole new schedule. When autumn leaves start to fall and temperatures cool, seasonal allergies can kick in, due to ragweed, mold that grows in piles of damp leaves, and dust mites that materialize when we turn on our heaters.

While we can’t stop the timeless cycle of the seasons, you don’t have to suffer as summer fades to fall, and fall soon turns to winter. At Santa Fe Soul Center for Optimal Health, we offer a powerful combination of natural traditional and alternative medicine to help you overcome health challenges that arise as your body adapts to fall.

Acupuncture—an ancient Chinese healing technique—can alleviate a number of seasonal issues, from allergies to depression, fatigue and sleep problems. Using fine needles placed along pathways that deliver Qi, or energy, throughout your body, acupuncture stimulates your muscles, nerves and tissues. The result is the restoration of your body’s healthful energy balance, which can make adapting to the seasonal change a breeze.

Intravenous therapies (IV therapies) are another powerful tool for transitioning through the seasons. At Santa Fe Soul, aka The IV Center of Santa Fe, we’ll help you select the right IV formulas for your health needs. Our signature nutrient IV therapies restore energy levels and promote excellent overall health. Our experienced practitioners will work with you to customize formulas to solve your specific health challenge. Or, try our Thrive Shots, potent combinations of B Complex, amino acids, Magnesium, Procaine and other nutrients that can ease depression, low energy, pain and help with many other health problems.

All of these services and more are part of my Amplified Regenerative Therapies (A.R.T.) at Santa Fe Soul.  I created these revolutionary programs to help you discover and expand your healthiest self and take charge of your own health. In addition to acupuncture, IV therapies and Thrive Shots, A.R.T. Includes oxidative therapies and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and herbs to alleviate chronic pain, headaches, hormonal imbalance and many other health issues.

Schedule an appointment at Santa Fe Soul and discover how A.R.T. can help you transition to fall, and transform your life. If you prefer an online videoconference, contact us to schedule your telehealth appointment.

If you would like to learn more ways to empower yourself by supporting your own self-care plan, enjoy listening to my new podcast called, “YOUNGER: The Art and Science of Youthful Aging.” It features interviews with leading experts in natural healthcare with easy access 24/7 as you live a regenerative life.

Alcohol Swaps

Alcohol Swaps:  Managing Your Liquid Sugar Intake

Let’s begin by saying we would prefer it if you skipped the hard liquor when discussing a regenerative lifestyle. With that being said, if you still feel you would like to relax with an alcoholic drink, how about swapping it out with a glass of wine instead!

That brings us to the first question you might want to ask, what kind of wine should I drink?

If you desire an drink with alcohol on occasion to kick back from a week of hard work, before dinner or when connecting with a friend, choose a dry wine.  Even over the holidays at parties, or at home this provides a great alcohol swap to remember.

In a WebMD article they write how researchers say their findings, confirm the absence of a link between the type of alcoholic beverage and the occurrence of cirrhosis is still valid.  This is one reason why we do not endorse drinking alcohol every day, but rather on occasion and only for special events.

The article offers more insights including a Danish study revealing wine drinkers have 70% less chance of getting cirrhosis of the liver, than those who drank liquor or beer.  In the article the French study couldn’t replicate those findings and came up with very different results.

Wine has been proven to have antioxidant qualities which might support the notion of lower cirrhosis risk for wine drinkers.  If you go down the alcohol route it is important to read the research, know your health risks and make the better choices.

What does that mean? 

If you decide alcohol is for you, serve and drink wine.  Here are a variety of reasons other researchers have found for those who drink wine over hard liquor:

Lower insulin – Enjoy a glass of wine and make sure you skip the desert. This could prove a good alternative to other sugar foods, especially for those concerned with cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

Weight loss – For those who have mastered their healthy weight zone, there has been research to support a glass of wine daily can lower the chance of becoming overweight.

Longer life – It has been said red wines have Resveratrol. This is a compound that triggers genes like SIRT1 which has been known to improve longevity.

Relaxation – Wine releases calming neurotransmitter, GABA. Perfect with dinner, but not good as a bedtime sleep aid because it effects your blood sugar which can interfere with the quality of your sleep.

Balance is one of the keys to a regenerative lifestyle which is quite an easy concept to remember for good health. Over-drinking, can add a burden to the body as it must convert into sugar, using lots of energy which can lead to major health issues, tax your liver and add to all sorts of unexpected problems.

Here we will briefly discuss ways to pick a healthy wine and the best time to drink it:

Red or White – The dryer wine is best, whether it is red or white. Obviously, avoiding the fruitier tasting wines would only make sense if you are managing your sugar intake because it would be higher. One reason is because the fermentation process that some cheaper wines might have, means the fermentation process was shortened or not completed. You want to drink a wine not a juice, which means you should choose a brand that you know has absorbed all the grape sugars. Keep reading…

A Brand for You – One of the best choices for wine has been Dry Farm Wines. They are known for their organic, low-sugar impact and a reliable wine to drink regularly.

NO Wine before Bed – As mentioned briefly above, drinking wine to fall asleep misses the point and becomes a bad choice. If you would like ways to help you with your sleep naturally, go here for a variety of brands including gluten free choices and we make it easy to order from over 300 top quality practitioner brands 24/7.

One Glass A Day – Wellness can be best supported in a lifestyle of balance enjoying the grace for each moment you live without having to be too hard on yourself. Guilt doesn’t work, so if you need to take a break from your best habits, make the better choices not the worst. If you must have one glass of wine a day, have it during or after dinner. It is important to relax into a reflective day and decompress naturally in order to move toward your vision and passion for a healthy life. You can live a smart lifestyle with a smile and without feeling bad about yourself.

The power of a regenerative lifestyle is in perfect alignment to my ART (Amplified Regenerative Therapies). Regenerative Medicine is where we are heading so embracing some basic habits on how you can get ahead of any heavy event season begins with being conscious about your eating and drinking choices.

Learn the simple examples for sugar swaps designed to provide a life line so you can enjoy yourself when eliminating those extremely bad decisions out of the gate.  You can make the better choices in your life today in order to avoid serious health problems in the future.

Sugar Swaps

15 Top Sugar Swaps: Easy, Potent and Pleasurable

Learning simple ways to manage the level of sugar intake during certain times of the year has its value. The responsibility is placed upon the individual to integrate and manage any ongoing holiday season that retailers seem to have defined for us.  For some it might take education, planning, work, so we thought we would introduce you to some simple sugar swaps to be used as tools in any circumstance.

When we seem to find any excuse to party. You heard the mantra, what is a meal or celebration without something sweet, REALLY SWEET with lots and lots of alcohol?

Whether you are being entertained or are the entertainer, high levels of sugar entering our body is not a good idea.  We forget our system breaks down the sugar into an acid, which really translates into fat, as the body must protect its internal organs.

If we don’t like to pollute mother nature, then why do we disrespect our own bodies.  The idea of a flu season has gone by the wayside, since we know the new normal is people get the flu 365 days a year now and the big trigger is ingesting sugar.

For those living a regenerative lifestyle you can understand the interest to keeping your body and immune system strong.  Think about it, a diabetic is forced to have clear guidelines to follow in order to stay alive.  Learn to recognize and practice ways to keep high sugar foods out of your body before dis-ease takes place and enjoy the celebration without feeling lousy afterwards.

Just google the stats.  I just found this article by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) saying 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year.  You know this dis-ease has a direct correlation to the amount of sugar that goes into your body.  Why wait until the 11th hour, when you can find simple ways to honor your body and eat for health today!

Maybe you have mastered the mindset with disciplined achievements for months, and maybe years, which has sharpened your thinking, give you that youthful look and offers new energy to go that extra mile.  Let’s manage challenging circumstances today so you can continue your great success through any holiday season.

We can agree, sugar is not your friend, so why go for instant gratification.  Let’s avoid sickness altogether by simply making better choices.

15 Top Sugar Swap Tips to use where ever you are:

Resist the Obvious – Sodas, candy, chips and baked goods unless you know the baker or can read the ingredients

Taste the Coffee / Tea – Make sure you taste the coffee / tea! Between the dairy creamers and the sugar, you know it is just a easy choice to go for the non-sweetened nut, and coconut milks and follow the low glucose options listed below in #5.

Breakfast Cereal – One of the worst offenders is breaking down at the start of your day with sugared granola’s, oatmeal and breakfast cereals. Make the effort to use pure rolled oats or unsweetened instant oatmeal mix and ask if this is a option where ever you go.

Hydrate with Water – Enjoy drinking your 8 glasses of water a day by sweetening it with lemons, cucumbers, watermelon, mint or grapefruit. When you keep water simple and delicious you will drink more.

Sweeten Naturally – If you must, bring your own natural popular low-calorie sweeteners with you, like: Stevia; Xylitol, Erythritol, Yacon syrup. At home, since it might be awkward to carry these in your backpack or purse, stock up on the “less bad” sugars like, real maple syrup, molasses, and honey but use sparingly.

Fresh Fruit – Most hotels, restaurants offer the ability to dive into some fresh fruit. Take advantage of it and serve it to your guests as well.

Naked Proteins – Choose a naked burger and leave the bun behind.

Celebrate Raw – Nuts and seeds are great to carry with you on the road and are great to add to any meal or salad.

Create the Perfect Parfait – Don’t be tempted to conveniently grab those prepackaged granola-filled yogurts. They are the worst sugar offenders and you might as well drink a Coke. If you are home, make your own parfait. The perfect one would include, Oikos Triple Zero (Greek brand yogurt), plain coconut or almond yogurts.

Give Up the Snickers – Although it is more and more difficult to find a healthier protein or granola bar, take responsibility for your own health and get use to reading the ingredients on the package. If you need a snack between meals, buy a box for the road that is a better snack for energy. Do not get fooled into an energy bar that will convert into sugar knowing it will only contribute to false energy and adds the bad fat to your system and will throw off your balance.

Trail Mix – STOP BUYING the trail mix at the convenient stores. Make your own before you leave town with a healthy mixture of unsalted and raw nuts (i.e. almonds, walnuts, pecans) and add some coconut flakes with some Goji berries.

Stop Screaming for Ice Cream – Find and enjoy the many natural, low-sugar frozen treats by making your own fruit blended Popsicle and enjoy the better choices like the Greek yogurt pops available at most food stores.

Cut the Cheese – Learn to treat any meal with cheese like desert choice, so manage your intake. Cheese will break down in your blood into sugar. So why overload your body when you are not at the least getting the sweet rush. So, if you have cheese on your eggs in the morning, skip the cheese on your salad for lunch. At dinner, substitute the cheese with some extra rich avocado (guacamole) with some green chile on your taco or burrito. Still hooked on Pizza, request a veggie slice without the cheese!

Get your Veggies – Okay, fruit smoothies still seem to pacify your desire to make a good choice, but in reality, have high sugar content to diminish what appeared to be a healthy choice into a sugar drink. If you reach for a smoothie on the road or make one at home, use one-part low sugar fruit (i.e. berries, melon, kiwi as opposed to Mango, Cherries, pineapple and papaya) with two parts vegetable.

Skip the Alcohol – If you find you enjoy an alcoholic drink on special occasions or after a hard day of work, keep it to 1 glass, and choose a dry wine instead of those sugary mixed drinks. Get access to alcohol swaps here!

Okay, so when you are on the road, don’t buy into convenience, even if the hotel breakfast says it is included in the room rate.  Be smart and enjoy a head start on your health every season, any time of year, by applying these easy sugar swaps!
