Kaz Wilson, Nutritionist and a living example of someone who has overcome an autoimmune disease, will facilitate Grow a New Body (GANB) retreat. Kaz has been working with this programme since 2019 where it changed everything for her, in a positive way. There have been many people who have gone through this life changing program and have had huge results and now have the tools to incorporate this way of living into their lives.
From the time we’re in the womb we suffer ongoing free radical damage to mitochondria, the fuel factories in our cells. This damage begins with our mother’s diet, and builds up from environmental toxins, pesticides, and stress, until it manifests later as disease. Cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and all degenerative diseases of the brain have in common free-radical damage and mitochondrial breakdown.
With more than 25 years of experience as a medical anthropologist, Dr Alberto Villoldo, the author of this Grow a New Body book, is also a psychologist and Shaman, studied the healing practices of the Amazon and Andean Shamans while living amongst these medicine men and woman. He discovered that you can repair your brain and heal your body in as little as a week by re-activating your cellular detox and free-radical scavenging systems that have shut down with age and turn on your health and longevity proteins (Sirt1 genes).
The shamans found that they could grow a new body that allowed them to live in extraordinary health. They learned how to switch off the “death clock” inside every cell, and turn on the “immortality” genes that reside in password-protected regions of our DNA. The shamans of old were truly masters of prevention. Grow a New Body offers shamanic practices alongside cutting-edge science, detox strategies, and power-plant foods that can switch-on every cell’s ability to regenerate and repair.
