Flipping The Page To Better Health
Melina Stroumpis was introduced to me at a San Diego conference a few years back. Her life partner is Chuck Williams, a great friend of mine and one of my favorite people on the entire planet.
Melina is pretty badass herself. And when I found out about her work as an Intuitive Life Coach, I asked whether she would be willing to be featured on “Great Books, Great Minds.” Here’s what she had to share:
A little about you and your holistic coaching practice and what led you to the book "Cleanse To Heal?"
I am an intuitive health coach who offers guidance to women looking to recover from chronic illness and find true health. Cleanse to Heal is the Medical Medium’s 6th book. I purchased his first book 3 ½ years ago and my life hasn’t been the same since. Through his books and podcasts, I gained desperately needed clarity and understanding around root causes and solutions for my autoimmune conditions and chronic mystery symptoms.
How did this book ultimately impact your life?
I made drastic changes to my daily routine and diet. As a result, I have fully healed from a debilitating chronic illness. Today, I am honored to be of service to others who are serious about their own healing journey.
Can you offer a brief synopsis of the book and why you believe it can be such a valuable resource for one's health?
Sure. Cleanse to Heal provides a wide scope into the world of troublemakers and why it’s imperative to help the body cleanse. As is the case with every Medical Medium book, Cleanse to Heal gets into the causes of chronic symptoms and conditions. The book’s focus is on how we are constantly exposed to toxins of all types.
What was it about the book that captured your attention?
The fact that it brings great awareness to the importance of cleansing the body in light of the innumerable ways we are regularly exposed to these toxins. You will learn the various ways that you can make better decisions to help lower your toxic exposure, and clean up the exposure you’ve already had. This includes toxins that were passed down to us.
There is so much talk and media hype these days about cleanses. What have you learned about them from your own journey?
Cleanse to Heal provides various options for cleanses. It first addresses what’s going wrong inside the body. As such, you’re guided to figure out which cleanse in the book might be best for you. The author also addresses the truth about trendy topics such as intermittent fasting and gut health. It helps folks make informed decisions about how to really take their health back. You’ll also get supplement suggestions and dosages for specific symptoms and conditions.
Can you elaborate a bit more about how the perspectives offered in the book have personally been of value to you and Chuck?
At 44 and nearly 40, both my husband, Chuck and I are healthier than we have ever been in our entire lives as a result of already practicing so much of what was published in Cleanse to Heal. The book offers a ton of information about the various ways we need to watch out for toxic exposure so that we can keep toxins out of our lives and home as much as possible.
What are the particulars of your lifestyle?
We hydrate with plenty of living water, eat low fat to help support the liver, and eat plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, among other practices. By living this way, we find that we are more clear-minded and have incredible vitality, allowing us to live with greater purpose during these transformational times. We both find ourselves stepping more into roles that empower others to discover their own inherent sovereignty on all levels. We both believe that’s what these times are all about, namely, that we were born to play a pivotal role in the changes we’re all going through.
Share with us a little about the author Anthony William and why you are such a huge fan of his.
Anthony William, AKA The Medical Medium, is a human who has devoted his entire life to helping those who suffer in silence. Those who are stuck in their homes, in their beds. Those who have gone from doctor to doctor spending tons of money trying to get answers and believing their body is failing them because they have debilitating symptoms. The reality is that your body doesn’t ever turn on you and is always doing what it can to fight for you. Anthony helps us understand not only that this is true but why it’s true.
What is his overriding message?
Although his information comes from a spiritual source that some are skeptical of, when you take the time to soak it all in, it really makes logical sense on every level. And, most importantly, it really works! He has empowered thousands upon thousands across the globe to heal from conditions they were told would be life long. He doesn’t promise quick fixes, but through work and commitment, one finds improvement and vitality flow back in the body when they really utilize the information offered in Cleanse to Heal and other books of his.
How has Anthony’s work informed your work as an Intuitive Life Coach?
My job is now to distill this information in a way that helps others have a streamlined healing journey. I use the Medical Medium information as a foundation to help clients clean up toxicity in the body, and then we repair and maintain health. The human body has an incredibly AWEsome design and it is capable of so much when we give it what it needs and get out of the way.
What do you believe we should be particularly mindful of in terms of their health amid the uncertainty and stress that we have faced with the Covid-19 pandemic?
The most important factor when it comes to health during these times we’re living in is Love. Why? Because when we go in the direction of fear, our entire system contracts. Our immune system lowers. Our adrenals pump out adrenaline which stresses them as well as the liver. Our nervous system gets into fight or flight. We see others as the enemy. We lose our connection to The Divine. We cannot find peace within, so we certainly don’t find it outside. We see others as the enemy and we become more divided.
When we choose Love over and over again, we are recognizing the interconnectedness of all. Whether that’s in reference to our own internal system or the network of consciousness that we all share. Focusing on building the world we wish to see is so important, rather than what we want to destroy.
Any final thoughts?
All of that said, eating plenty of healthy glucose found in fruits and starchy veggies or raw honey is critical to the health and stability of the adrenals, brain, nervous system, and liver. Hydrating plenty with living water is also super important to keep stress levels down. And lastly, tremendous amounts of self-care. No more putting things off or saying you don’t have time. The time to care for yourself and really level up and heal is now. We are creating our future. Are you playing an active role in building the future you wish to see? The best way to do that is by healing yourself and allowing those rewards to ripple out into the world.
