With expert information and recipes that are both simple and delicious, this book can help you emphasize more health-giving essential fats that really will help you lose weight.
The Eat Fat, Lose Weight Cookbook describes a wonderful way of eating the foods you love--and losing the weight you want to. A well-known nutritionist, Ann Louise Gittleman, has been trying to get across the message about fat for decades.
While Eat Fat, Lose Weight is not a diet book, it does contain some fabulous recipes.  Here’s one that is going on my table during the holidays! And, if you are interested in reading Eat Fat, Lose Weight, you can take a look at it on Amazon. All of these tools are healthy and helpful, but there is no “quick fix” and there are times that dealing with loss really does become quite draining.
In her latest post, Corey Ann Rotella, CNA, shares her thoughts about mindfulness–going through the day being truly alive and aware of each moment. Often, as I go through my shift assisting my residents with their activities of daily living, I listen to them as they reminisce about times gone by, both good and bad.
It is no small feat to reach the age of ninety-three, outlive everyone you know and love and still find both joy and humor in the little things:  a good, strong cup of coffee, a hot shower, a purple blouse.
We live in a fast paced world.  It is easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of our own lives, to run full speed through the times that matter most. Anyone working as a nursing assistant has chosen a very challenging path.  Poor compensation, workplace politics, short staffing, conflict between coworkers, irate and difficult residents, miscommunication, heavy lifting and the loss of those for whom we care all make for a tough work environment.
And, while I detest warring egos and unnecessary gossip, I love that I have learned how not to engage in it. For example, I’ve learned how to resolve conflicts, the importance of dedication and flexibility, how to excel in the face of difficulties and that work ethic comes from within. But the real cherry on top is what I have learned from my residents.  They inspire me every day. By watching my residents, I learned to strive for these three traits…and to demonstrate them daily in both my work and my personal life.  As a result, I have not only saved my sanity, I also vastly improved my quality of life.  At the end of the day, I love what I do!
All of us at In the Know are honored to have Corey Anne Rotella, CNA, lend her very special voice to our blog as a regular contributor.
There are times when our job can feel thankless and, sometimes, we might forget that we play a vital role in the health and quality of life of those for whom we care.  I know, for me, any lovely words of encouragement and tokens of appreciation from the nurses, administrators, and doctors mean a great deal.
Thank you, my fellow CNAs.  Thank you for showing up to take care of your patients, even when you feel under the weather. Besides reclaiming your skinny gut over the holidays, there’s probably nothing more important than keeping your liver in tip top shape. Most of us are familiar with herbal liver detoxifiers like milk thistle, Oregon grape root, and dandelion root. Your liver, in its innate wisdom, synthesizes and secretes about 1 ? quarts of this miraculous substance on a daily basis and then stores it in the gallbladder. Bile is the daily key to absorbing and assimilating fat as well as serving as the toxic waste dump for excess chemicals, hormones, drugs, heavy metals and other toxins that eventually need to be eliminated by the body. If you have a persistent roll of fat at your waistline, your liver may have stopped processing fat—due to a bile shortage—and begun storing it! Only when you rebuild those bile levels, will you lose that fat—for good—and achieve the super health you deserve.


Remember that fat—not carbohydrates—is the preferred fuel source for your body’s trillions of cells. That’s why your brain is over 50% fat, your liver is nearly 5 pounds of fat and your kidneys, retinas, and endocrine system are composed of fat.
Without enough bile, your body simply can’t absorb the fat-soluble vitamins like Vitamin A (the infection fighter), Vitamin E (the fertility vitamin), Vitamin K (the bone health healer) and Vitamin D (the healing hormone-like vitamin that increases immunity and wards off breast and colon cancers).
The problem is that bile can be hampered from doing its job because of a lack of bile nutrients (like lecithin), congestion or even clogged bile ducts which hamper bile flow and result in less bile production. You can consider a gallbladder flush (to be administered under your health care professional’s guidance) which usually consists of Epsom salts, grapefruit juice, apple juice and olive oil, or simply restore the missing bile salts—which is imperative especially if you no longer have your gallbladder.
The latter is the relatively easier fix, although some individuals definitely may need a good cleanse. There are many gallbladder cleanses on the market which are designed for those with a gallbladder that may be sluggish or clogged. Follow the cleanse with a supplement like Liver-Lovin Formula that helps the gallbladder continue to cleanse itself by detoxifying secondary bile toxins and acids and HCL Plus.
With protein meals that contain fat, HCL Plus would be my recommendation (call UNI KEY to order 800-888-4353). With the advent of the holidays, it’s a wonderful time to appreciate the commitment you have made to super health.  Together let’s celebrate the long-awaited return to fats and their proper assimilation so all systems are a “go” for a stellar end to 2014.
I was just at a Standard Process seminar, and we talked about the gluten in some of the products. 1) Cholacol, a Standard Process product, does not contain gluten unlike other Standard Process products. 2) To approximate the ideal pH environment of a healthy stomach, Ann Louise recommends that HCL with pepsin and ox bile be taken and spread out during the first half of the meal especially with meals higher in protein and fat. As the blog states, bile salts would be an appropriate supplement for those without a gallbladder. Oops my bad, I skipped that paragraph thinking it was pertaining to people that still have a gall bladder. Maintain a healthy, wholesome diet and half of your body weight in liquid, Monica and you will be just fine. My husband is a Chiropractor, I am trained to guide his patients through nutrition and detox. Enabling JavaScript in your browser will allow you to experience all the features of our site. This time, she turns her focus to the loss and grief that are a part of every nurse aide’s work life. As long as it does not interfere with the care of our other residents or patients, I think it is healthy to work through it in whatever way is best for us individually. Loss has the unique ability to put our own lives in perspective and crystalize what is truly valuable within them. After all, we are surrounded by people who would give quite a bit to have wasted moments back. Who has time to “stop and smell the roses” when we have friends, families, jobs and obligations? We work in an environment that is a constant reminder to BE IN THE MOMENT, to keep our head where our feet are.


We’d love to hear from nurse aides everywhere so please add your comments about working in health care! I take great pride in walking this path of purpose with all of you and you are deeply appreciated.  Always know that you make a difference in this world. The “Plus” refers to 50 mg of an ox bile extract.  The hydrochloric acid component triggers the gallbladder to dump bile, so less bile would be needed in the presence of hydrochloric acid than the straight bile salts. It is a Standard Process product which UNI KEY can also order for you if you cannot find it elsewhere. Those with celiac disease may need to avoid the gluten in them, but most others are absolutely fine.
We also recommend the Fat Flush Diet to remove accumulated fat around the waistline with our Fat Flush Kit that provides a Weight Loss Formula with fat metabolizing nutrients including lecithin, choline, and inositol.
This book is the perfect recipe for not only cardiovascular disease prevention, but also the best strategic plan for looking younger and staying younger.
I save my grieving for off the clock, but I DO feel the losses deeply and they do affect me in a variety of ways outside of work.  Honing solid and healthy coping skills in our line of work is incredibly important. I’ve been researching how to start a local support group in my area for long term care workers.
In my life, it is a rare and beautiful thing to be able to bring order to chaos rather than the other way around.
I am also gluten intolerant and have never had a reaction to the Standard Process products that contain gluten. For me, the deep mutual trust that is involved in caring for my residents in their most vulnerable moments forms a bond between us. I believe that it’s worthwhile project and would be an outlet for healing and learning from one another.
Some were great, some were terrible, but in one way or another, I have learned from them all and it’s the lessons more than anything that keep me coming back. Thank you for being my grief counselor, and allowing me to be yours, and for sharing laughter and tears and frustrations.  Thank you for being my teachers and for shining the light of humor during the toughest shifts.
You can take several teaspoons of epsom salts to “get things moving” first thing in the morning or the evening before the cleanse. Does your alternative doctor do any muscle response testing to see how your body reacts with the supplements? They open up to me about fears and grief and their lives “before” and, within reason, I share aspects of my life with them. This works for me and for them.  Grieving their loss is a vital part of my healing process.
Knowing that I was blessed to have these wonderful people in my life for even a short amount of time enriches me, reminds me of why I am in this field in the first place and inspires me to stick with it. With doing all this, when do you think I should see an increase in Bile and Liver function?
