Heal Yourself

Body ~ Mind ~ Spirit

by Sandie Gascon


GENRE: Body, Mind & Spirit / Healing



The body wants to return to balance. It just needs the tools to do so. Heal Yourself ~ Body ~ Mind ~ Spirit ~ helps you discover the messages your body is sending, and it also shares the tools to aid your body in healing itself.

"Part One: Body" covers Sandie's whole-body approach to healing: rebuilding and rebalancing the body, removing stress, and addressing the root causes of chronic illness. All key systems in the body are covered, including functional laboratory test analysis to determine what support your body needs, and the forms of supplements that are right for you. Because everything in our body is connected, we must also focus on our mind and spirit in order to heal. When we change our negative thoughts, beliefs, and responses to ones that serve us, we remove a huge burden of stress from the body.

"Part Two: Mind" dives deep into all areas of personal growth, from empowering language to the Laws of Attraction, building healthy relationships to wealth consciousness, and so much more.

"Part Three: Spirit" is focused on meditations to help further your spiritual journey. Through meditation, you learn to become the observer of the body. From here suffering becomes optional, allowing you to shift to a vibration of peace where the body, mind and spirit can heal.



One of the most common questions I receive is, “What is the root cause of my illness?” Everyone wants to blame something: Lyme, candida, mold, root canals, antibiotics, medication, and so on. I have found the answer to be that there is never a single root cause of illness. We all start out with a reserve. I think of these reserves as our bodies’ “bank accounts.” Genetics and the health of our mother will determine how much of a reserve a person has in the beginning of their life. Through pregnancy and after birth, any stress we encounter makes withdrawals from the bank account. Stress includes emotional stress, physical stress, and chemical stress. Emotional stress is pretty straightforward. Physical stress will include things like injury and exercise. Chemical stress includes toxins, metals, and pathogens. Our world is a stressful place.

The majority of people eat a Standard American Diet (SAD). Kids grow up lacking nutrients. Moms are nutrient deficient, which creates more genetic mutations being expressed from the womb and beyond. If a mom’s detoxification pathways, in particular methylation, are not functioning optimally, it will mean less detoxification capability for the baby. Formula fed babies start out with a propensity for leaky gut. Moms are now getting vaccinated while pregnant, and babies currently being born have the most vaccines in history.

Withdrawal after withdrawal is happening from our bodies’ bank account, which quickly becomes depleted. Once the person hits zero balance and goes into debt, symptoms start occurring. The further in debt they get, the more symptoms appear, and eventually, disease is inevitable. It is no wonder we are seeing illness in increasingly younger individuals, and the rate of all diseases continues to climb. The amount of stress we face is outrageous.

By the time you start showing symptoms, the last event is what most people correlate with their symptoms and illness. In reality, it is just the straw that broke the camel’s back. If it were not that case of food poisoning, for instance, then it would have been the next stressor.

That is why I don’t focus on pathogens or metals in the beginning, and I do not recommend strict diets. Both of these end up stressing the body further. We need to stop making the withdrawals, or at least reduce them, and start making deposits. Deposits are supplements, herbs, and foods that fuel us.

Deposits include fueling our souls with passion, purpose, joy, and love. Stopping the withdrawals is done by removing chemicals in our environment, reducing emotional stress through mindset work, eating clean, whole foods, and in time, removing metals and pathogens. Rebuild and rebalance, repair detoxification pathways, and remove stress; these 4 Rs are critical to replenishing our bodies’ bank account.



Describe What Steps You Take to Achieve and Maintain a Healthy Work/Life Balance

When I started writing my book Heal Yourself ~Body ~ Mind ~ Spirit~, I was also running a successful coaching business with over 150 active clients.  All of which have unlimited text support. At the time my son Kaiden was just over a year old. If I didn’t have a healthy work/life balance that would have been a very stressful time. Thankfully, my mindset toolbox is filled with tools that allow me to have this balance.  Part two of my book Heal Yourself is where I share all my tools to help create your own healthy balance.  Here I will go over some key ones.

Self-care is of the utmost priority.  This doesn’t mean massages and spa days though they are always nice to have in our schedule.  Self-care is making time for your passions.  What do you love to do?  Don’t say work.  It is great to love your work.  I love my work, and it is still work.  I am passionate about it, and it is still work.  It pays the bills.  It has deadlines and goals.  Instead focus on passions that count as true play. Something you love to do that is fun and spontaneous.  It doesn’t have goals, outcomes, or deadlines. It is expressive and it keeps your engagement.  Sports are great but you have to have a desire to play even if you don’t win.  Ideally not have winning involved at most of the time. I am passionate about riding horses, and it is my ultimate self-care.  I found because I had so much to do at work, I had to drop my riding goals and just go out and have fun with my horses.  Otherwise, it became work and added to my stress. Make a list of what you are passionate about that would be considered play and make time to do this a few times a week. You can also add in some “fluffy” self-care like massages, shopping, spa days, etc.  I also consider mindset training to be part of self-care because it is only something I can do and is vital for reducing stress.  Personally, I read or listen to an hour a day of inspiring books or podcasts.  The more we work on our thoughts the more peaceful we become.

Delegating is another key to a healthy work/life balance. What can you delegate at work? Answering emails, ordering supplies, social media, tech. This will free up more time for your self care. What things can you delegate around the house that you don’t need to do?  Things like laundry, house cleaning, yard work, cooking, dishes.  You can delegate to hired help or family members.

More often than not we have trouble delegating because we need to learn to ask for help and set boundaries.  I say learn because most people are people pleasers or are afraid to look vulnerable.  Many people want to feel like they can handle everything.  We have to unlearn these limiting beliefs and learn new ones.  I find it is always great to ask ourselves deep questions.  Our subconscious tends to have the answers.  All we have to do is ask.  Questions like, “Where do I need to say no in my life?” “Who is taking advantage of me?”  “What boundaries do I need to place?” “Where do I need to ask for help?”  Getting clear on these will allow you to free up more time for self-care and time for family so you are able to create the healthy work/ life balance.
