YOUR BODY

Can't I detoxify on my own?

Can’t my body just detoxify artificial sweeteners, colors, preservatives, additives, and chemicals on its own?

Yes! The body is an amazing machine and has the capability to detoxify. However, because of lifestyle habits and the environment, it can slow down the body’s ability to keep up with the load of toxins. The body gets overwhelmed, overloaded, and burdened.

It is a good idea to work together with Temna.  She will work with you to smooth out the detox process.

 

Why take herbs?

Because herbs are neither a chemical or synthetic. Herbs are all natural and more bioavailable. They are plants that provide nutrients for the body. Some herbs are more potent then others so it is advised to seek the suggestions of a natural health professional during use.

Why eat healthy?

Why put good gas in your car? You want it to run well. It is the same for your body—you need healthy nutrient-filled foods for your body to run at its optimal health potential.

Why drink water?

“Water is life. Without water the body can’t survive more than three days.”

Your body needs to be hydrated to 1. maintain healthy fluid levels, 2. to detoxify and support kidney functionality, 3. to transport nutrients from our foods and supplements all around the body.

The following constitute water/fluid intake:

  • Herbal teas (hot or cold)
  • Fruit/Vegetable infused water
  • Lemon water
  • Soup-Broth

Why is fluid intake so important?

To quickly move toxins out of the body. A person who does not move or exercise to the point of sweating, will give their body a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, parasites, and toxins, which in time turn to symptoms and disease.

For example a stagnant pond is a breeding ground for bacteria, parasites, and toxins. Compare this to an active body of water, like a brook, where the movement of the water prevents bacteria from growing thus keeping it clean.

Why exercise?

To help the body move toxins A stagnant pond is a breeding ground for bacteria, algae, and toxins. This can be likened to a person who does not exercise and does not move – their body and functionality of their systems will become stagnant and they will become a perfect host for bacteria, parasites, and toxins, which in time turn to symptoms and disease.

The oxygen that goes into a moving bubbling brook prevents bacteria from growing by promoting movement and not being stagnant. It is the same with our bodies – when we exercise, we are bringing in oxygen, increasing blood flow, and bringing nutrients to weak/injured areas. All of which helps with detoxification, clean tissues, clean cells, and a clean body, and keeps the body happy and functioning properly.

Tell yourself you are doing “therapeutic movements” instead of the word “exercise”.

Why take suppliments?

FACT: JAMA states that every American needs to supplement their diet. Necessary minerals are depleted from our soil which cause the foods we eat to not have their full nutritional potential. Therefore, the consumer needs to supplement to make up what nutrients are lost in the foods we eat.

For example: You would have to consume 4 cups of spinach daily to equal the daily recommended amount of calcium which is 1000 mg. Whereas you could supplement calcium with 1-2 tablets per day.

Another point to consider is, you might already have a micronutrient deficiency that needs to be supplemented. Supplements can fill in the gaps until your body can catch back up. It’s like giving a car a jump start. The car has a battery but if the battery dies you need to give it a jumpstart.”

Should I take my supplements with my medications?

Always consult your physician.

An additional suggestion may be to separate supplements from medications by 1 hour, so that there is no interference of the action of one substance with another.

If a medication says not to take it with food, then you do not want to take that medication with supplements, since supplements are food.

In general, it is recommended to just keep it separate, unless your physician confirms otherwise.

Should I take herbs and supplements during a menstrual cycle?

With the exception of Red Raspberry Leaf tea or Yarrow, Temna suggests not to take any green plant herbs. These herbs contain Vitamin K which is a clotting agent. Supplements are fine unless otherwise suggested by your medical practicioner.

How long does it take to notice a difference once I start my suggested regimen?

Anywhere from 1 day to 5 days; it really depends on the person. It depends upon how intuitive you are with your body, how diligent you are with your program, and it depends on each body, each case. Please feel free to reach out to Temna if you have any questions along the way.

What "symptoms" should I expect to experience during the the detox?

During this process of regeneration, lasting about 10 days to several weeks, the body will have days of vibrant energy and “feel good” and a few days in between when the body doesn’t feel so well. Why?

When the body “feels good” it now has the strength and “ammunition” to get rid of unwanted toxins that can cause symptoms and disease.

Drink plenty of water and rest on these days, to flush out these toxins so they don’t cycle back into the system and create some of the following symptoms:

Headaches, fever, chills, colds, flu-like symptoms, sinus drainage, mucous, diarrhea, constipation, skin eruptions, fatigue, sluggishness, irritability, depression, frequent urination, etc…

Suddenly you feel better than you’ve felt in years! As the body becomes pure, you will reach your optimal health potential.

BE PATIENT, CONSISTENT, COMMITTED, and ALWAYS COMMUNICATE when questions arise.

PRODUCTS

Why does Temna have preferred companies?

Do quality supplements really matter?

Temna has taken the time out to choose companies that care about the quality of their products – USDA certified organic, no artificial colors, no GMOs, no corn, no soy, no gluten.

Do not cut corners with quality!

Does buying supplements from Amazon, Target, Walgreens, etc. really matter?

There are factors to keep in mind:

  1. There are different grades of supplements
  2. Some companies do not seek out the freshest options
  3. You are basically wasting your money by getting low-quality herbs. You want it to be as fresh as possible.

In conclusion, puchase you supplements from one of the supplieers or dispensaries suggested on our website’s store page.  I’ve found these to be the best bang for the buck.

 

Which is better – Tablets? Capsules? Powders? or Liquids?

Liquids and powders are preferred because they are absorbed faster into the body. If there is an issue with taste, add to smoothies, water or juice, or take the capsule or tablet form instead.

People should not feel guilty about choosing one form over the other. Better to get it in your system somehow, some way.

Should I take liquids, tinctures, or extracts under the tongue

No, unless otherwise directed on the label.

Should I take my supplements with my medications?

Always consult your physician.

An additional suggestion may be to separate supplements from medications by 1 hour, so that there is no interference of the action of one substance with another.

If a medication says not to take it with food, then you do not want to take that medication with supplements, since supplements are food.

In general, it is recommended to just keep it separate, unless your physician confirms otherwise.

What’s the average monthly cost of herbs and supplements?

What’s the average monthly cost of herbs and supplements?

It’s relative. It depends on each case. For example, if you have a minor/temporary health challenge it may be around $100. However, if you have a more challenging health issue, your cost could be greater.

1. Temna can keep better track of your regimen routine.
2. Free shipping
3. 10% Loyalty discounts
4. Access to 290+ professional brands that you can’t get in a retail store.

6. Your loyalty supports Temna’s practice

How often should I be scanned?

1. On the day of: If you have any pain, discomfort, or symptoms that need relief, you can scan immediately to find the why.

2. Then Once a month: If you are working on rebuilding your health, you need to scan once a month for a body check-in. Then the needed diet and supplement adjustments can be made to ensure your progress.

3. Finally Once every 3 to 6 months: Like a car your body needs maintenance. It only takes 3 to 6 months for a cell to manifest symptoms and disease. So maintenance check-ups are suggested every 3 to 6 months.

How often should I have Iridology done?

Temna uses Iridology to determine your inherited weaknesses.  Since the weaknesses are inherited, you only need one session.

For live real time health assessment, Temna utilizes other sciences including Biofeedback scans.
