New Client FAQ
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.
How long will my back-to-health journey take?
Three months minimum. Then add one month for each year that you have had symptoms. As you can see from this formula, the body needs a few months to completely rebuild itself. It does not happen overnight—it’s a process, a journey, a healthy lifestyle. However, the body wants to be healthy, so you will see wonderful changes happening along the way. Your patience and diligence are what pays in the end.
Why order from Temna’s online shop?
Here are a few perks to remember:
What’s the average monthly cost of herbs and supplements?
It’s relative. It depends on each case – for example, whether you have minor/temporary health challenges versus long-term challenges. But on average $80 – $250 per month.
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.
Should I take herbs and supplements during menstrual cycle?
With the exception of Red Raspberry Leaf tea or Yarrow, Temna suggest not to take any herbs or supplements during menstrual cycle.
Why take supplements?
We all need to supplement daily our diets. This is because soils are now depleted of vital nutrients, which cause the foods we eat not to 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.
Why use essential oils?
Essential oils are used for aromatherapy, a deep emotional response in the field of holistic healing, to balance the body, mind and spirit. They are very concentrated and are used to experience a psychological effect, such as stress relief.
Do I take my supplements with my medications?
Always consult your physician. However, a 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 otherwise shared by your healthcare practitioner.
Do I take liquids, tinctures, or extracts under the tongue?
As a rule, dilute with 1 oz. or more of water. The exception is if the label-suggested dosage says to place under the tongue, then follow those instructions.
Which is better – Tablets? Capsules? Powders? or Liquids?
Liquids and powders are preferable because they are more bioavailable, absorbed faster, and easier for the body to break down. If there is an issue with taste, add to smoothies, water or juice, or take the capsule or tablet form instead.
Preferred form will likely differ for each person. If it is a palate issue or for convenience, then better to take a tablet or capsule to get it into the system than to not take anything at all.
People should not feel guilty about choosing one form over the other. Better to get it in your system somehow, some way.
Why the Blood Type Diet?
Food fads come and go, but the facts are clear: everyone does not have the same basic nutritional needs. We all know someone who is a strict vegetarian and thrives on that diet, while others use low-carb plans. Temna recommends Dr. D’Adamo’s, Blood Type Diet. Why? Because the foods you eat react chemically with your blood type. If you follow a diet designed for your blood type, your body will digest foods more efficiently, you’ll lose weight, have more energy and help prevent disease.
For example: O Blood types digest meat better than an A Blood Type.
After you know what blood type you are you can download the blood type diet app, 4YourType $3.99, so you can have access to the list of highly beneficial, neutral and avoid foods and beverages.
Stagnant Pond vs. Bubbling Brook
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 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:
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 do the 15-day Reboot & Rebuild Challenge?
It’s giving the body a break. It’s like putting your body on a 15-day vacation. It is an individualized program with accountability, it’s doable, and you have access to Coach Temna to keep you motivated, to keep you going, and for any Q&As. This is your opportunity to reset your body.
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!
What symptoms should I expect when on my program?
[Temna will add]
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.
Does buying supplements from Amazon, Target, Walgreens, etc., really matter?
There are a lot of factors in keeping supplements fresh and in creating a quality and pure product that gets delivered to you. You are basically wasting your money by getting low-quality herbs. You want it to be as fresh as possible.
Temna’s Fundemental Five
Eat the “highly beneficial” and “neutral” foods according to your Blood Type Diet list. Avoid the “avoid” foods on the list. They are like “poison” to the body, hard to digest hard to detox out of the body.
HERBS & SUPPLEMENTS
Herbs and supplements support, nourish and detoxify the body for optimal health potential.
Drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day. Ex. 160 lbs = 80 oz of water each day. Not drinking enough water is like putting a large load of laundry in the wash, with a small load worth of water. The laundry will not get clean! Likewise, your body needs enough water to detoxify and to transport nutrients from our foods and supplements all around the body.
MOVEMENT… why exercise?
BE PATIENT, CONSISTENT and COMMITTED!
Remember the back to health formula: It takes three months for the body to properly detoxify down to the cellular level. Then add one month for each year you’ve had the symptom.

What symptoms should I expect when I improve my diet?
“Symptoms? I thought improving my diet would make me feel better, not get symptoms!”
Perhaps the greatest misunderstanding in the field of nutrition is the failure to understand and interpret the symptoms and changes, which follow a better nutritional lifestyle change. A remarkable thing happens when a person improves the quality of the food they consume!
When the food you ingest is of higher quality than the tissues from which the body is made, the body discards the lower quality tissues, to make room for the higher quality materials to make healthier tissue. A healthier you!
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.

What is it like to get a Zyto BioScan done?
What is it like to get a Zyto BioScan?
Getting a Zyto biocommunication scan is a 4-6 minute, non-invasive, painless process. Simply place your hand on the Zyto hand cradle while a scan is run. During the scan, subtle energetic impulses are introduced to your body. Your body will naturally respond to this communication and the Zyto software records each response. Although a few people may be able to sense this energetic communication, most are unaware that the scan is taking place.
How often should I do a Zyto BioScan
Regular Zyto scanning will provide you with up-to-date biocommunication information as your body changes. Because the Zyto BioScan is non-invasive the frequency of scans is not harmful. Some people use their own intuition, knowing something has changed, shifted in their body and its time to scan. Other people prefer guidance by Temna, who will guide you with a specific scan schedule best for you.
Why get a Zyto BioScan?
The Zyto BioScan help you and your holistic practitioner make better decisions about your health and wellness. That’s why ZYTO technology is referred to as wellness decision support technology. It’s important to note that although the Zyto hand cradle is an FDA approved device, the ZYTO scans are not intended to treat or diagnose.
Is the Zyto BioScan safe?
There are no known contraindications for properly administered Zyto BioScans. The amount of energy used in a scan is so low that it is safe for infants, children, and adults of all ages, including people with pacemakers and pregnant women.

Why does Temna recommend the Blood Type Diet?
For example: O blood types digest meat better than an A blood type. So A blood types would fare better as vegetarians.
Your blood type is a genetic factor that plays many roles in the human body. Choosing low-lectin, non-agglutinating foods that create a hospitable environment for your good’ intestinal flora and selecting foods that combat your disease risks are two good first steps in creating an individualized nutritional program just for you.
Temna states, “In all my years of suggesting different diets to clients, I believe Dr. D’Adamo’ blood type diet supports the body’s changes and needs best.”
