If you have been in our office recently, you may have heard of or even experienced a visit called double hands. If you have not experienced it, you may be wondering what it is.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 states "Two people are better than one, because they can reap more benefit from their labor."
We have found this verse to be so true. At Valeo we have many practitioners who each have very unique gifts and skills. When we are meeting with a client one on one, if we find the person has an issue that could be helped by another practitioner, we typically would refer them to that other practitioner. By doing double hands, or having both practitioners work at the same time on a person, we can see much faster healing and usually for a much lower cost in the long run to the client.
Double hands then is having two, or even more, practitioners working on you at the same time to help you in a much more powerful way, with less time and less cost.
To learn more about Double Hands please feel free to ask one of our staff the next time you come in or call us at 952-949-0676.
emotional stressors both past and present as they too can play a huge part in cancer. Unfortunately as I did this the basal cell area was growing, in fact it was fairly big and was not decreasing.
I consulted a friend of mine who is a dermatologist. I also talked with my wife's stepfather who is a medical doctor specializing in elderly care. Both of them told me I need to get it cut off. My friend even told me that there was no other way to get rid of it other then to cut it out. By this point I was ready to do this as it had gotten bigger and would not stop bleeding when irritated. I decided to do some more research and see what other people had tried other than cutting it off. I came across many people who said that they had used ascorbic acid. Unfortunately there were no protocols other than put it on and it will fall off. So off to Lakewinds to get some Ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic acid is one part of vitamin C. It looks very similar to sugar and is even somewhat sweet. It is what most vitamin companies use to create Vitamin C supplements. When I first put it on it burned pretty good. I was putting it on 3-4 times/day. It burned each time. Which to me was good because it felt like it was doing something. For the first few days the now hole in my forehead was getting bigger. I was not sure if this was good. Over the next few weeks I kept putting it on. Eventually it no longer burned but I still had a large hole in my forehead.

I knew this would get some attention, this article sure caught my eye. Dr. Lamadrid did mention the importance of proper nutrition/fuel for our bodies, and exercise, I would like to emphasize the importance of those two things. Proper nutrition and at least some movement everyday, especially weight-bearing exercise as we age, for bone health, is so important.
I do appreciate this study to provide hope for those suffering with weight issues. I am so thankful we at Valeo can offer people hope through acupuncture, naturopathy, chiropractic, massage, craniosacral...I really believe that the best is yet to come!

Mariah Carey: Singer’s husband reveals acupuncture helped with pregnancy - National Pop Media | Examiner.com
Another encouraging story how acupuncture helps with fertility. Although not much was stated in this article other than Mariah's one-a-day treatments, acupuncture balances the body from the inside out. One of the many reasons for infertility is high stress level and in our society today of the NOW mentality there is much frustration with innability to conceive. When our body is given the opportunity to rest, relax, and we fuel it properly it only has one option: BABY!

According to the Oncologist, Dr. Ryke Hamer, M.D., disease can be caused by an emotional experience that is shocking, isolating, and completely unexpected. Due to a personal experience with cancer he began investigating the histories of thousands of his cancer patients and he found that, without exception, they had all gone through extremely stressful emotional traumas before developing cancer. He began studying the brain scans of his cancer patients while comparing them to their health histories and medical records. He discovered that every patient had suffered a "conflict shock," which was an emotional event that caught them off-guard.
In addition, through the study of fetal development known as Embryology, he determined that every disease is controlled by a specific area of the brain which also correlates with the organ/system that developed at the same time. For example, the thyroid gland develops from the endoderm, which is the germ layer that develops at the same time as the brain stem during the first period of the embryonic stage. So, according to Dr. Hamer, at the moment of an emotionally distressing situation that was not anticipated and for which a person was not prepared, three levels within the body are affected; the level of the psyche, the brain level, and the organ level.
At Valeo we have long known that undernourishment, poisoning, and injuries are common causes of organ dysfunction, but through using the theory of German New Medicine along with other techniques and the power of God through prayer we have been helping our patients get to the underlying root cause of their health challenge. It is only by getting to the root and "pulling it out" that a patient is able to get full resolution of that health challenge.
If you are interested in learning more about the unique breakthrough's in health and wellness that we are utilizing here at Valeo, please give us a call. If you have "tried everything else" and have had limited success, don't give up! We are here to help!

I told her that I would do an evaluation and see if I could help her. I found that she had subluxations in her neck and upper mid-back and found significant trigger points in her shoulders and between the shoulder blades. We started care, adjusting her spine, releasing the trigger points, and showed her exercises to prevent future problems. Within 3 visits her symptoms were 90% better. After the 4th visit her problems were almost completely gone. All at a cost of under $200. She is very grateful for the relief and for the savings. She could have paid $1000 for tests that she really did not need and she would still need to pay for care. Instead she paid less than $200 and she got relief.
Currently the debate in this country is who should administrate health care the government or private sector. But in my opinion that is not the real issue in health care. The real issue is we have too many sick people and we deliver overpriced, ineffective health care. Until this changes no matter who is paying for it, the government or the private sector, we will bankrupt this nation. A real change needs to happen. If you want to be part of that change, if you want to be part of something that is a part of the solution, call us today (952-949-0676).

Some of you know I was led to move back to Wisconsin (home) for a time a few months ago. I arranged to have my friend move into my place or should I say, God arranged her to move in, and even before I started packing I felt God say "leave all that you can Miranda, leave your furniture, dishes, a bed, dresser, television...etc." Okay Lord. I just knew I was supposed to bless her with a fully furnished condo. My family back home thought I was nuts moving home with next to nothing, but I had what I needed, my clothes and my bed (she had hers). It was freeing to me leaving my "stuff" behind, after all it is just stuff, and she needed it more than I. I am not going to lie, living at home again after 12 years being on my own has been harder than I thought, but I just kept thanking God for my new place and things to fill it with. Last week out of the blue I found a perfect place for my daughter and I. Two days ago, my uncle called me up and said someone is paying me to empty this house out, come and have your pick of everything you need. Praise the Lord!!! I still am in awe of the 2 beds, dressers, desk, entertainment center, 2 televisions, lamps, stands, all kitchen ware...and so much more. God is so good and so faithful!
If God has brought anything to your heart as you were reading my story that you may be holding onto too tightly, release it to Him and watch as He gives it back to you, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together!

I have been asked by a few people recently why are you moving Valeo Health and Wellness Center and are you OK with the move.
When we opened the office back in July of 2004, I felt (and still feel) that God called us to Chanhassen. When our lease came due this past June, we brought it before God again to tell us what we should do. There were a few options but we wanted to make sure we were following God's direction not our own. It seemed that God was leading us to stay in Chanhassen. Unfortunately it wasn't until towards the middle of June that God directed us.
So thinking that God was leading us to stay in Chanhassen we came to the owners of our building with the terms that we felt God led us with. They were very soft terms in that we were needing more space and wanted the owners to change the lease amount to an amount closer to market rates (we actually only asked for $1 less/ square foot which is still higher then market rates). We thought this was a no brainer and they would agree because God was leading us to stay. They did not agree so we decided to see what was out there. We found a space in Eden Prairie that was just what we were looking for. It was pretty much move in ready (except for a facelift) and the cost was $5.50 less a square foot. God had answered our prayers just not how we thought.
I know that for some of you this location is farther away, myself included. My 3 minute commute is now 10 minutes. I know that for some of you the location is closer. Either way we hope that you will see the value in our services enough to want to make the move with us. We are following God's direction here. We know that you need to as well. If God leads you to not follow us, we completely understand but if he does lead you to follow, we are excited to continue to deliver great care! Valeo Health and Wellness Center has gone through a lot of changes over the past 6 years and it will probably continue to do so as we continue to follow God. We feel that the changes we have made have allowed us to deliver superior care, care with God at the center, and look forward to delivering the same great care in Eden Prairie.As far as am I OK with the move. I am thrilled about the move for the sole reason that God has led us.
Dr. Aaron Morland
Move Date: We will be open for business in our new space Aug. 2nd, 2010. We will continue to see people in our Chanhassen location up until 12 PM Thursday July 29th, 2010.
New Address: Our new address is 11800 Singletree Lane Suite 205 Eden Prairie MN 55344.

The health media has been talking to us for decades about conventional salt. It raises blood pressure, promotes heart and kidney disease and even assists in forming cellulite!
Here’s the reason why:
Table salt is not 100% salt. Conventional salt contains aluminum, anti-caking agents, moisture absorbents, and in some brands even sugar! All of the natural trace minerals that your body needs to sustain health, were taken out during processing. But before you give up on salt altogether, let me tell you about the original form of salt (known as sea salt) that you can easily get your hands on.
· Helps regulate blood pressure
· Contains trace minerals that help our bodies function properly
· Enhances digestion
· And nourishes our adrenal glands, which is what helps our energy levels (sea salt does plenty more, but I think you get the idea)
We’re not meant to deny ourselves of salt and there is a fabulous array of sea salts out on the market…to get you started, some noteworthy ones are Celtic (grayish color), Redmond’s Real Salt, or even the pink Himalayan sea salts…try them all! They’re available @ co-ops, Whole Foods and in most stores that offer a natural health foods section. As for your table salt, that’s great to put on your icy sidewalk in the winter!

New York Yankees
New York Yankees starting pitcher A.J. Burnett gets acupuncture from the team acupuncturist. When Burnett was considering signing with the Yankees, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman sweetened the deal by promising to sign on a team acupuncturist. Burnett says of acupuncture, “There’s no doubt in my mind that I think it’s helped… I found that I responded really well to the acupuncture….”
San Francisco Giants
Looking at the West Coast, San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Randy Johnson gets acupuncture from the SF Giant’s team acupuncturist. Randy Johnson is the 24th pitcher to win over 300 games and, at age 46, his is also one of the oldest to do so.

They tested acupuncture, which began in China more than 2,000 years ago and involves inserting needles into the body, against the Wyeth antidepressant Effexor, for hot flashes in breast cancer patients.
Acupuncture was just as effective as Effexor, also called venlafaxine, in managing symptoms including hot flashes and night sweats, according to researchers led by Dr. Eleanor Walker of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.
After 12 weeks of treatment, symptoms were reduced for 15 additional weeks for women who had undergone acupuncture, compared with two weeks for those who had taken Effexor, Walker said.
Well-written article. I agree I do see many patients who come in for one issue, and as a side benefit of acupuncture, they end up sleeping better, and having more energy and more even emotions. But after only 12 weeks of acupuncture, symptoms were still reduced after 15 more weeks? Yes! Talk about more bang for your buck! That compares to performing high intensity interval training for 20 minutes and burning fat for the next 24-48 hours. Bravo!
I love this article! We have choices people...choices. I love that God has given us this amazing medicine that literately has no side effects. And since he is a God of more than enough, not only does acupuncture have no side effects, many times it has side BENEFITS. How awesome is that? The decision is ours, do we infiltrate our beautiful bodies, cells, organs, etc. with synthetic pharmaceuticals, which have life-altering side effects, or do we choose natural ways that aid our bodies to heal the way God intended?

I just want to take a moment and tell how the Bax 3000 has helped Tyler. Usually every spring and fall Tyler is miserable with red itchy eyes, a constant dripping nose and if there is any kind of a breeze outside he wouldn't even try to be outside in it for long. He was miserable! Late last fall we started the Bax 3000 visits and here we are in the spring and Tyler has NO ALLERGY SYMPTOMS!! NONE! Everyday this spring and he has been outside and is loving it!
Thank you! Valeo has helped our family in so many ways to have a better quality of life. We appreciate all of the staff and value your all of your services!
With much Gratitude,

Having said that, I'd like to put the spotlight on two vegetables that are currently in season (in MN anyway) that seem to have a designed purpose for making their grand appearance at the same time in the Spring: Asparagus and Rhubarb.
Three things I'd like to cover with these two darling produce items:
1. How they operate in the body
2. How eating both of them (but probably not at the same time :-) can actually balance areas of the body out.
3. Yummy recipes that are worth making tonight.
Known as a fruit but botanically a vegetable, rhubarb is a dessert staple in many Minnesotan kitchens in the Spring and early Summer. With a few exceptions, the stalks of the rhubarb plant are cooked alongside plenty of sugar to tame the otherwise tart flavor. It is the root of the rhubarb that is sought after for medicinal value. The stalk carries an array of nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, beta carotene, folic acid (Vitamin B9), and Vitamin C. Something to be aware of: the STALK does contain oxalic acid. Also, the rhubarb LEAF carries a lethal dose of oxalic acid and therefore should NEVER be consumed. When oxalic acid is consumed excessively, it can be harmful. It is stored throughout the body and not recommended for those who have a history of calcium oxalate based kidney stones. For those who love to partake in the short season of rhubarb, not to worry, it has a friend to balance the negative effects out: the humble asparagus.
This vegetable was used to relieve the pain of toothaches and the prevention of bee stings by the Romans and Greeks. It's a natural laxative as well as a diuretic, which helps break up the uric and oxalic acid stored in the body which is most commonly found in the kidneys and muscles (read rhubarb description above), and removed through the urine. This often produces a strong odor that is temporary. Not only is this vegetable a great blood builder because of it's chlorophyll content, but also builds up the skin, liver, kidneys, bones, and ligaments. Asparagus is also a cancer fighter.
This is a simple and fantastic recipe from Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. It's more like a compote, helps digestion, and hits the sweet spot after a meal without overdoing it.
6 cups fresh rhubarb, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 Tbsp freshly ground ginger
a little less than 1/2 cup water
1/2 cup raw honey
Place rhubarb, ginger and water in a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook about 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb disintegrates. Allow to cool and stire in honey to taste.
You don't need to dress up the humble asparagus. This simple roasted recipe makes the asparagus hold the superstar status that it deserves! Thicker stalks of asparagus when roasting at this temp ensures them not dry out.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Wash and trim asparagus. Place in a single layer in roasting pan. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast the asparagus in upper third of oven until tender, approximately 10 to 12 minutes.

I do have to say, that I presently feel better than I have ever felt in my life – not due just to the healing of the Staph in my ears, but with all the other healing in my body due to the nutritional response testing – through this we found that I had an intolerance to wheat and sugar and since ceasing to eat these foods, the stomach problems I had have gone away. It’s been a long walk and I sometimes did not fully understand how all these muscle test, priority tests, cranial sacral etc worked, I felt God leading me to stick with it and have found such healing not only physically, but mentally and spiritually. I know sometimes it seems like it costs too much, requires too much time, etc but in the end your health is so worth it!
Thanking God for putting such awesome healers in our midst, and respectfully yours,
I first found mung bean fettucine at Linden Hills Coop and now I buy it at the friendly Lakewinds coop. Mung bean is a legume with an amazing source of protein. It also packs a punch of magnesium, potassium, and B vitamins. Eat up folks!
I am loving the mung bean fettucine these days, just cook it up and add some Ohsawa Organic Nama Shoyu unpasteurized soy sauce for the ultimate authentic chinese experience. Throw in some fresh organic cilantro for some heavy metal detoxing just for fun. Of course it is delicious with organic pasta sauce as well. In the same row you will also find black bean spahgetti to try. Yum.
Ancient Chinese Medicine practitioners recommend mung bean to dispel toxins, relieve high blood pressure, and help stop coughing.
Mung bean fettucine is a favorite at Valeo...try it for yourself and let us know what you think!

According to BBC News:
“The fluoride in the ash creates acid in the animals' stomachs, corroding the intestines and causing hemorrhages. It also binds with calcium in the bloodstream and after heavy exposure over a period of days makes bones frail, even causing teeth to crumble.”
Many may see this story and never connect the dots between the tragic poisoning of these animals due to a natural event, and the intentional poisoning of human beings through excessive fluoride exposure each and every day.
This story is another clue that just because something exists in nature doesn't necessarily mean it is good for you. And this is certainly true for the seriously misguided use of fluoride to prevent dental cavities.
The practice of adding fluoride to your tap water began in 1945. With more than 60 percent of U.S. water supplies currently fluoridated, chances are you’re one of the 170 million Americans who drink fluoride on a daily basis.
Most likely, your dentist – along with countless government and public health officials -- has praised and promoted the use of fluoride, both in toothpaste and drinking water, as one of your must-do regimens to promote strong and healthy teeth.
Unfortunately, they’ve all bought the public deception, and have unwittingly participated in and perpetuated perhaps one of the grandest public health frauds and toxic cover-ups in U.S. history.

Do power struggles over food often spoil your mealtime? Fear not! You can learn to avoid the fights and your kids can learn to eat healthy food. The key to taking the wind out of your kids’ “picky eater” sails is to learn to do your responsibility well, and let your children be responsible for their intake.
For starters, try to remember this simple rule about who’s responsible for what:
Parents are responsible for what is presented and the way it is presented.
Children are responsible for how much and even whether they eat!
(The ideas in each category are ordered from general suggestions to those appropriate for very picky eaters.)
Offer many HEALTHY FOODS
- Provide variety. Children need repeated exposure to a variety of nutritional food. At the store, remember: If you don’t want your children to eat it, don’t buy it.
- Serve small portions. Young children are easily overwhelmed by large chunks or portions.
- Limit drinks with calories. Offer mostly water between meals. (Limit juice/milk.)
- Don’t reward with dessert. Rewarding vegetable eating with dessert, for example, gives a strong message: the sweets are “yummy” and the vegetables are “yucky.” Instead just have dessert once or twice a week as a regular part of a meal – whether kids finish their vegetables or not.
- Include one preferred food, but refuse to “special order cook”! At each meal include one food you know your child will eat, sampling some yourself. Create an “our food” mentality, not “my food, your food.”
- Modify favorite foods. If your child is a strongly picky eater and wants only a few certain foods, serve them only once every other day and modify them slightly in size, shape, color, flavor, etc. – just enough so that your child will notice, but not get upset. This builds flexibility in eating as you gradually increase the variety.
Create an ENJOYABLE MEALTIME environment
- Have regular sit-down family meals, with positive conversation and atmosphere and no TV or distractions.
- Refuse to engage in power struggles related to what or how much your child chooses to eat.
- Pass food. When capable, children should be encouraged to pass food and place servings on their own plates.
- Allow messiness/play. For young children: allow/encourage some messiness and playful exploration of food, especially at snacks. Exploring and playing with food is an important part of development in which children learn about food and learn to enjoy it.
- Talk about your enjoyment of the food. Describe the food’s size, color, shape, texture, smell, taste, etc. In a relaxed way, talk about why you enjoy it, and how it is similar to a food which your child accepts.
Use POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL STRATEGIES
- Use “You can” language. As often as possible, replace demands or questions (such as “Can you ____?”) with “You can _______.” i.e. “You can try that new food.” “NO!” “You can when you’re ready.”
- State the rules in a neutral way. Whenever possible avoid saying “Stop,” “Don’t,” or “No” at meals. Instead state rules regarding appropriate behavior in specific terms, i.e. “The food stays on the table,” “Chairs are for sitting not standing,” “We use our inside voices at the table.”
- Gently affirm sampling of new foods. Do not pressure, manipulate, reward or excessively praise children for eating. These tactics imply children wouldn’t naturally want to eat the food, i.e. there’s something wrong with it. Observations like, “I see you tried something new,” or “We’re both eating our peas,” are helpful. Your child should realize he is eating something of his own choice, not to please you.
- Teach your children the “10 Times Rule:” Research shows that it takes about 10x’s of trying a food to know if you like it.
Research consistently shows that attempts to make children eat certain foods are more harmful than helpful. One study even revealed that children who were rewarded for eating a new food were less likely to eat it the next time it was served, than were children who were simply presented the food! So how can parents encourage children to eat a greater variety of healthy food? The answer: do your responsibility well, and don’t take over your child’s responsibility!
