What is Candida? What should I do about it?

Did you know that 1 in 3 American's have Candida issues in their bodies? It all begins in the gutt, and then travels to all places in the body...yuck!

Candida Albicans are a natural strain of bacteria that lives in our bowels, but when allowed to grow unchecked can cause havoc on our immune system and show up as a myriad of symptoms such as allergies, rashes, pain, stomach upset, inflammation, reactions to smells, headaches, etc. We see it in the form of fungus, infection, epidermal irritations, and thrush; there are oral forms, vaginal forms, blood forms, and intestinal forms.
The best way to treat an overgrowth of Candida is to cleanse with an essential oils blend, clean up the diet, get plenty of sunshine and fresh air, and exercise, and repopulate the lower intestine with good bacteria by using a probiotic. Refrain from consuming anything with sugar, mold or fungus, as Candida Albicans is a yeast and will feed off of these foods.

Initially, as you proceed with the cleanse it will create a "die off" effect and you will feel worse for a small period of time, while the Candida is expelled. Most suggest taking the cleansing blend for two weeks on and then off for one week as you take a probiotic. Then repeat the cycle, as needed, until Candida symptoms are gone. Following this, for long term maintenance, continue with a good diet, exercise, and a monthly cleanse (2 weeks of the cleansing blend and 1 week of probiotics).
Avoid using antibiotics, birth control, and foods that are high in sugar or yeast as much as possible.
Often people complain of feeling badly or experience rash or other "die off" symptoms. It is not unusual to experience die off symptoms as your body purges the Candida. Consider a diet of raw foods during your cleanse, and drink LOTS of lemon water.

 doTerra offers two products that make this much easier. GX Assist, a pre-prepared cleansing essential oil blend of oregano, melaleuca, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint, and thyme in a capsule form. It is recommended to use it monthly by taking 1 to 3 capsule daily for 10 days. Follow this with PB Assist, a probiotic formula to promote healthy digestive function in a time release bead, and should be taken daily for 5 days after the GX Assist 10 day cycle.

As mentioned elsewhere as the candida is expelled various "die off" symptoms may occur. Feeling badly, rashes, changes in bowel routines, etc. Varying from 1 to 3 capsules can modify these symptoms to a comfortable level.

Of course you may prepare your own blend. Dr. Hill recommends a formula of 1 drop oregano, 2 drops melaleuca and 3-5 drops lemon taken in a 00 size capsule. The lemon will eventually melt the capsule so it's good to only make a couple days worth - at a time. One easy method is to pre-mix the appropriate blend in a 2 oz bottle with a dripper lid then drill 00 capsule size holes about 1/4 inch deep into a short block of wood. Open capsules can be placed in the holes of the 2X4 and easily filed with 6-8 drops of the mixture. We have found from our experience this is more expensive (and certainly less convenient) that using the pre-prepared GX Assist.

Cancer Protocol with Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils (CPTG)

The following information began with Nicole Stevens, MS. The original research was her dissertation on
Therapeutic-grade essential oils and their response in the body to cancer.
We know that chemotherapy is highly toxic and kills healthy cells along with the cancerous cells. According to the research done by Nicole Stevens, MS, it is not unusual for cancer therapies to kill a large percentage of good cells along with the bad. This is why we see the signs of hair loss, yellow eyes, grayed hair, nausea, fatigue, etc, from patients on chemotherapy. With therapeutic-grade essential oils the cell death count is less than 25 cells. Nicole tested repeatedly and has not yet found a toxicity level, even at extremely high concentrations. Dr. Jaime Matta (Ponce School of Medicine, Ponce, Puerto Rico) found Frankincense to be very effective against even chemotherapy-resistant strains of breast cancer. The National Institute of Health research shows effectiveness against bladder cancer. Google Frankincense cancer , 42 papers published, watch for the publication of this research. There are also other oils which are found to be anti-tumoral; some of them also encourage the re-growth of healthy cells. Among them are Sandalwood, Thyme, Lavender, and Clove. Understanding the costliness of pure Frankincense and Sandalwood oils (both require so much time and care to distill and retain their therapeutic action that they are commonly extracted using solvents or not distilled for the full amount of time), it is exciting to learn that other, less expensive oils may be combined with Frankincense & Sandalwood and actually increase the effectiveness of a cancer treatment. Combined with dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Trio, (these are) powerful tools for healing!

This protocol is beginning to be used on a larger scale, by doctors in private practice and in US
hospitals at this time.
I was taught to combine it with the Spinal Technique, daily if possible, and lots of good water to drink.
One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Lavender morning and evening for 3 days.
Frankincense, Sandalwood and Lavender topically morning and evening for those same 3 days.

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Wild Orange morning and evening for 3 days. Frankincense, Sandalwood and Wild Orange topically morning and evening for those same 3 days.

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Lemon… (Repeat process)

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Thyme… (Repeat process)

One 00 capsule Frankincense, One 00 capsule Sandalwood, One 00 capsule Clove… (Repeat process)
The oils may be rotated as often as necessary.


I am not a doctor, but I do work with doctors whom I trust, and this is what they would do for their family.
I have shared this protocol with family members and friends with tremendous success when the need has arisen.
SPINAL THERAPY: Balance, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Cypress, Peppermint.
(Often this therapy is all that is needed to remove pain, otherwise use formula(s) below)

PAIN FORMULA as needed: White Fir and Frankincense applied topically.

PAIN FORMULA as needed: In a capsule for internal consumption: 12 drops Wintergreen, 8 drops Vetiver, 8 drops Helichrysum
PAIN FORMULA as needed: For nerve-type pain, 1/3 00 capsule Vetiver, 1/3 Peppermint, 1/3 Deep Blue topically and internally.
Some may work better for you than others.
The trick with any treatment is finding what works best for your biochemically unique system.
You will not find concentrations like those in dōTERRA oils anywhere else.” ---Nicole Stevens

where to purchase these CPTG Essential Oils:
(option for purchasing at wholesale or retail)

Kangen Water (Alkaline water) is what I recommend.

    Eldon Taylor's - New Book Launch

    New York Times Bestselling Author and featured "PTN?" documentary interviewee, has just released his new Hay House Publication,
    "What If: The Challenge of Self-Actualization."

     This new book is not just a fascinating read but a transformational experience that allows your true self to flourish!"Few are the authors who turn you inside out, who blow up your preconceived notions and cause you to become honest with yourself through and through. That's precisely what happens when you read What If? I highly recommend this book to those who are unflinching in their journey to the Authentic Self."Michael Bernard Beckwith, author, Spiritual Liberation
    Have your ever felt just a little off? Sensing or experiencing a sort of discontent-the kind that leaves you disquieted? Or how about those feelings that life is going by and somehow you are missing something or that just around the corner there lurks a sure and certain peril? Are you addicted to consuming, dreaming of how you can obtain more, more of everything-money, power, fame, esteem, and so on? Have you tried self-help only to be disappointed in its bandaging effect? These are some of the signs of what Eldon calls Falsophrenia-a new Global Pandemic?

    If you relate to any of this then What If? The Challenge of Self-Realization is something you must read!

    Oil Pulling (some call it oil swishing) -

    What is Oil Pulling?

    Oil Pulling is a safe, simple, cheap and gentle procedure who's benefits range from bringing health to your mouth and ridding your mouth of harmful toxins and bacteria, to a method that cures and prevents diseases and extends your healthy life.

    Studies are on-going, but the procedure is gaining more and more popularity as people are finding success and positive results with oil pulling. We will explain the details of oil pulling later in this article, but the basics involve pulling and swishing 1 tablespoon of Coconut, Olive, Grapeseed or some other quality oil around your mouth and through your teeth for up to 20 Min., then spitting. The therapy is simple and completely harmless, as you do not ingest medication or drugs.

    Oil pulling was practiced in Ayurvedic medicine. Modern oil pulling was introduced in 1992 by Dr. F. Karach, MD. Dr. Karach claimed that this treatment will achieve remarkable results with illnesses like migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro-physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and woman's hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism. Dr. Karach's claims that oil pulling heals the whole body in perpetuity. He sites results with terminal diseases such as cancer, aids and chronic infections.

    According to the African Journal of Microbiology Research, oil pulling is an effective defense against the bacteria associated with dental caries (tooth decay). Studies show that it has also been beneficial in the elimination of bleeding gums, the fastening of loose teeth and the visible whitening of the teeth.

    Many advocates of oil pulling suggest safflower, sunflower or vegetable oil, but more and more studies and successes are finding higher quality oils are more effective. The anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties of whole, extra virgin coconut oil makes it the perfect choice for oil pulling and certainly is gaining popularity.

    The use of essential oils added to the primary pulling oil is slow to find it's way to most oil pulling enthusiasts because of the lack of superior essential oils that are CPTG quality. But as people discover how a CPTG essential oil can benefit oil pulling, essential oils will become more and more popular in oil pulling.

    Does maintaining a healthy mouth help you have a healthy body?

    Up-and-coming science suggests that advanced gum disease can be linked to diabetes, cardiovascular problems, and pre-term birth.

    The Early stages of gum disease is gingivitis-which affects a majority of all adults at some point in their lives, and most don't even know it.

    Many theories exist and more studies are underway to explore the connection between good oral health and overall health. The conclusions lead us to know that a healthy mouth leads only to good things.

    Lets explore these connections more -

    Persistent halitosis (bad breath) is often a sign of a more serious problem in your mouth. Poor oral hygiene and gum disease are the primary causes of halitosis.

    It is estimated that around 50% of adults have some form of gingivitis. Gingivitis, if left untreated, may progress to a more serious condition called periodontitis.

    Besides weakening your teeth to the point of loosing them, studies suggest that periodontitis may affect the health of your entire body.

    On going studies suggests that periodontitis may be associated with diabetes, heart disease, and numerous other health issues.

    Heart Disease and Heart Attack -

    Studies suggest that advanced gum disease may be a contributing factor to heart disease. The theory is that gum disease or periodontitis, allow oral germs to enter the bloodstream. These germs may affect the heart by attaching to the fatty plaques in your arteries, contributing to the formation of clots. According to this theory, these clots, in turn, can cause the restriction of blood flow (a.k.a. atherosclerosis) which may lead to a heart attack.

    Stroke -

    On going studies also suggest that advanced gum disease may be associated with the presence of blocked arteries in the brain, a condition which may lead to a stroke.

    Further studies advise that gum disease, if allowed to progress, may allow germs to enter the bloodstream. These germs may attach to the fatty plaques in your arteries, contributing to the formation of clots. According to this theory, these clots, in turn, can cause the restriction of blood flow and, in some cases, a stroke.

    Diabetes -
    Emerging science also suggests that diabetes and gum disease may be linked. Not only does diabetes increase your chance of gum infection, but gum infection may make diabetes harder to control.

    Diabetics are significantly more likely to develop gum disease because of the way diabetes slows the body's natural healing process. Research also suggests that advanced gum disease may have an adverse effect on blood-sugar levels-potentially making diabetes treatment less effective.

    Can essential oils help with oral care, therefore health care?

    This is where effective oral care can become a necessary part of health care. Essential oils used the with an oral care routine that includes brushing, flossing and oil pulling with anti-septic and anti-bacterial essential oils can prevent gingivitis and peridontitis, thus improving our over all health care.

    Exactly how do you do it?

    Prior to breakfast on an empty stomach you take one tablespoon of coconut or other carrier oil and add 3-6 drops of essential oils.

    Add your essential oils based on issues. They might include, but are NOT limited to:

    On Guard - General immune system, mouth and gum health, teeth problems, halitosis, cold, flu, sore throat, virus.

    Oregano - Flu, Cold, Virus, sore throat, swollen glands, cold sores, herpes, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antibiotic, anti viral.
    Clove - Mouth and Gum, analgesic, anti-biotic, and antiseptic.
    Frankincense - Analgesic, cold & flu, mouth surgery, mouth trauma, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory.
    Geranium - mouth and gum, throat, laryngitis, analgesic, antiseptic
    Grapefruit - Cleansing, detoxifying, anti-septic, antibacterial.
    Lemon - Cleansing, detoxifying, cold, sore throat, anti-septic.
    Lemongrass - herpes, halitosis,
    Melaleuca - Cold, flu, Immune system, braces irritation, Gum and mouth sores, Congestion, herpes, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial,, antiseptic.
    Myrrh - mouth, teeth and gum, cold & flu, tonsillitis, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antiseptic.

    Take the oils into the mouth but do not swallow it. Move the oil slowly in the mouth as rinsing or swishing and as Dr Karach puts it; " sip, suck and pull through the teeth" for fifteen to twenty minutes. This process thoroughly mixes the oils with saliva. Swishing activates the enzymes and the enzymes draw toxins out of the blood. The oil must not be swallowed, for it has become toxic. As the process continues, the oil gets thinner and white. It is then spit from the mouth, the oral cavity must be thoroughly rinsed and mouth must be washed thoroughly. Just use normal tap water and brush with normal toothpaste, or on guard with water.

    This has in effect pulled toxins and poisons out through the mucous membranes of the mouth to be expelled. If you use virgin coconut oil, expel into the garbage, as it can solidify in the drain.

    It is important to understand that during the oil-pulling/swishing process one's metabolism is intensified. Many feel this leads to improved health. For many, the most striking results of this process is the fastening of loose teeth, the healing of sores, the elimination of bleeding gums and the visible whitening of the teeth.
    The oil pulling /swishing is done best before breakfast. To accelerate the healing process, it can be repeated three times a day, but it is always best before meals on an empty stomach.

    Remember, do not swallow. The oil should be spat out.

    Per Dr. Karach, that this treatment will achieve remarkable results with illnesses like migraine headaches, bronchitis, diseased teeth, arterio thrombosis, chronic blood disorders such as leukemia, arthritis and related illnesses, neuro physiological paralysis, eczema, gastro enteritis, peritonitis, heart disease, kidney disease, meningitis, and women's hormonal disorders are completely eliminated from the organism. The benefit according to Dr. Karach's is that the oil therapy heals the whole body in perpetuity. In terminal diseases such as cancer, aids and chronic infections Dr. Karach reports this treatment method has been shown to achieve astonishing results.

    Asparagus -- Who knew ?

    Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article, entitled, ‘Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me:

    I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health or over 50 years.  Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories. For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh.

    [However, make sure the packaging of the can isn't laiden with chemicals. I would rather use freshly steamed Asparagus, followed by blending because this way I know that the nutrients weren't cooked out of the veggies by over heating, or extended periods of cooking time ~Kimberly Gingras HHC].

    I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives. Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy tomake a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening. Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases. As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink.

    As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a
    result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth.. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic. In any event,regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance.

    The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
    This post is from an email sent to me by my Aunt Julia. Grandma died of cancer, and so did quite a few of her siblings and parents. The name of the 'Biochemist' was not listed in the email.

    Lower vs Higher Level Needs of Our Brain/Body Chemistry

    "Lower level needs including
    physiological and safety needs are
    prioritized before higher level needs
    such as love and belonging, esteem
    and self actualization can be met. If
    one is merely trying to survive, one
    cannot express or experience love,
    belonging, or intimacy, much less
    be confident, learn, problem solve,
    and show empathy and acceptance
    of others. Some of the very qualities
    that make us distinctively human
    are impaired."

    March is not only Brain Injury Awareness Month, but March 14-20 is Brain Awareness Week

    An annual opportunity to raise public awareness about brain related research around the world. Advanced Brain Technologies is proud to participate as a BAW partner with The Dana Foundation, and we have chosen to devote this issue to the brain and to traumatic brain injury. We are particularly pleased to feature two articles written by providers who have used The Listening Program® as a treatment modality for adults with brain injuries. We have had many inquiries about the potential effectiveness of both TLP and BrainBuilder® for adults with brain injuries and we hope that these articles will shed more light on the potential for recovery of function that might have been deemed impossible by many professionals just a few years ago. Enjoy and please share your own success story. Many providers have had such success with The Listening Program through the years that we no longer get to hear as many of the great stories we once did. We want to be able to share more of those triumphs with families who are looking at ABT for possible benefits for their loved ones.

    Best Regards,

    Alex Doman

    The Mood Cure...Amino Acid Therapy and More...Who is Julia Ross?

    "The Mood Cure Program is the foundation of my platform..."Boosting B.R.A.I.N. Activity!"
    ~ Mrs. Montana International 2011; Kimberly Gingras HHC

    Julia Ross is a pioneer in the field of nutritional psychotherapy and a specialist in the treatment of eating disorders and addictions. She has founded and directed six successful recovery programs since 1980 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of her favorite achievements include starting Northern California's first treatment program for food addicts and the area's first programs for drug-addicted adolescents and their families. Receiving a state award for her work with diabetes and addiction in California's Native American tribal clinics is another of her most treasured achievements.

    In 1980, Ross began hiring nutritionists to research the link between biochemistry, emotions, and addiction. By 1986 this exploration had led to the creation of an exciting new model of treatment that combined innovative nutritional therapy and holistic medical care with conventional counseling and education. This new model gave hope to the 90% of addicts of all kinds who were unable to sustain recovery through traditional programs. In 1988 Ross founded The Recovery Systems Clinic in Mill Valley, California, an outpatient program that further developed this model, with a special focus on treating people with dieting disorders and carbohydrate addictions.

    Ross is a popular and compelling speaker who has made hundreds of presentations to introduce the public to the extraordinary benefits of nutrient therapy and biochemical rebalancing. In addition to a busy lecture schedule in California and throughout the US and Canada, Julia provides intensive trainings for professionals on how to successfully treat eating disorders, mood problems and chemical dependency. She has frequently taught courses in John F. Kennedy University's graduate psychology program in Orinda, California, and at the University of California, Berkeley Extension's Addiction Counseling Certificate Program.

    Ross' best-selling book, The Diet Cure, has sold over 150,000 copies in the U.S, the U.K. and Australia. When the Diet Cure book proposal was first sent to the New York publishing houses it created a sensation. Seven publishers bid on it because of its unique approach to the top selling subject in America: Dieting. Julia has recently completed a second book, The Mood Cure, released in paperback in 2004 and a finalist for "The Books for a Better Life Award." The many publications that have featured Ross' work include: Psychology Today, San Francisco Examiner Magazine, Alternative Medicine and Natural Health.

    Ross has frequently appeared as an expert on radio and television programs. Her first national TV appearance, on a 1997 news segment about amino acid therapy, generated 50,000 calls to the producers.

    Julia holds an M.A. in Clinical Psychology, as well as a California marriage and family therapy license. She is the Executive Director of The Recovery Systems Clinic in Mill Valley, California.

    From Kimberly Gingras HHC~
    This program is the main "chunk" that made up my son's "Program" that I used on a daily basis for his healing. Over 1 1/2 years time I was able to get him re-diagnosed from Autistic to ADHD (through his Doctor, and team of professionals in the special education department at his school) Thanks in majority to this program. We no longer "Label" him anymore with diagnosis, and we do follow The Mood Cure program still. It makes all the difference. My son is just a poster child for all of us. We are all in need of this wholeness, and we seek to fill the holes in our own lives (in our own way), through many forms of addictive habits. I love this quote by Julia Ross, because it is Sooo True! "I'm proposing that much of our increasing emotional stress stems from easily correctable malfunctions in our brain and body chemistry - malfunctions that are primarily the result of critical, unmet nutritional needs."
    This is the foundation of my platform as Mrs. Montana International!!! "Boosting B.R.A.I.N. Activity!"

    New Life House in Torrance, CA "Building and Reprogramming"

    New Life House was originally created in the late 1980’s for men who were struggling with drugs and alcohol and had nowhere to go.

    Younger adults were in bad shape when it came to drug and alcohol abuse and a lack of life skills. There was no solution available to them once the families, and the individuals themselves, realized that they needed help. There was nothing that existed for teenagers who were eighteen to twenty years old.
    ...The younger men were able to hide out and avoid change, thus continuing to be the same individuals that entered the house [in the same program as the older men]. This inevitably led to relapse after they left the program...Needless to say, finding success stories among those younger men are few and far between.

    Perry, the Founder and Director of New Life House, realized that a completely different structure was needed in order to help young men achieve sobriety. Perry separated the two age groups [young men and older men] and designed systems that were tailored specifically for teenagers. The environment and structure became geared toward the younger adult. That was the starting point of our success.

    There is no other structured sober living home in Southern California that has remained as cost effective as we have while maintaining our level of success and our level of care. No other facility rivals New Life House in terms of long-term sobriety achieved by our alumni.

    Over the last twenty years, we have expanded by founding three more houses which operate under the same staff as New Life House. Reality House, Miracle House, and our new women’s facility, Clarity House, have been helping men, women, and their families to get their lives back.

    To read the full article, and for more information visit: Call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week: 310.532.5083

    Services New Life House provides:

    • Drug and alcohol free environment / Twelve Step Program
    • Legal Assistance
    • Transportation
    • Referrals for outside help, psychiatric, therapy, etc.
    • Weight & exercise room
     Down the road They will assist with:

    • Extended network of apprenticeship and career opportunities
    • Contacts of people and groups associated with Alcoholics Anonymous
    • Apartment and housing assistance

    "In following the steps at New Life House, and achieving progress, Michael has advanced to the level of responsibility as "Big Brother" to new life house member Devin (who upon my visit to the house had just entered the program the night before). Michael is responsible for Devin to teach him the "ropes" (rules and regulations) of the House. If  Devin were to make a mistake or break a rule during his time of training with his big brother (Michael), then Michael would have to pay the consequence for Devin's actions.

    A fun irony in this experience for Michael is that he comes from a family of 7 children, and is the youngest. He always wanted to be a big brother, and now through his achievement of sobriety, and responsibility, he now has this honorable duty to be his brother's keeper, and guide Devin through the beginning process of adjusting to life at the New Life House."

    "Devin is from Chicago IL, and Michael is from San Diego, CA The majority of the boys who live at New Life House are from California, but a handful are from out of State. I was able to share my message of wholeness through my platform; "Boosting B.R.A.I.N. Activity," with some of these boys and their families at a special parent day (once a week) where group meetings are held with the boys and their parents, and then a separate parent support meeting follows. A pot luck is shared with quality time between parents and their son's from about 10am-4:30pm. Then the boys are off to their responsibilities of AA meetings, work related tasks, and writing their 'words' (part of the 12 step program)."
    ~Kimberly Gingras HHC

    From New Life House:

    We know there is not a magic wand we can wave to make someone stay sober, but we do believe there is a simple key to success for maintaining sobriety. The longer an individual is removed from the negative influences of his old lifestyle, the better chance he has of staying sober.

    There are a few key elements we put into practice at New Life House to ensure someone has the best chance possible of receiving the help he needs to have a new life:

    •A long term structured environment
    •Teaching and application of life skills for success
    •An experienced, qualified staff
    •Family involvement
    •Alcoholics Anonymous/ 12-Step participation
    •Alumni involvement

    The Family:
    The family is an intricate part of the recovery process for the individual who is in New Life House. A lot of healing needs to take place within the entire family and that process starts here. Designed to further promote a family environment, the house hosts a variety of events, such as family lunches on Saturday and group outings to the movies, bowling, and the beach. All outings are pre-planned and house members are given advance notice. Every Saturday morning there is also an Al-Anon meeting for the parents and siblings that all are welcome to attend.

    Our Aftercare Process:
    Six percent of the people who come into the program of Alcoholics Anonymous of their own volition never drink or use drugs again. The odds are against the majority of individuals from the start, especially in the age group of eighteen- to twenty-two-year-old males. The attraction to living a sober life must outweigh the attraction to someone’s old way of life if there is to be any success at all. What happens when a young man leaves the environment at New Life House? What good is long-term care if it eventually ends? Recovering from alcoholism is a lifelong process and we have designed an aftercare method that works. Upon completion of our program, young men are set up to move into a house or apartment in the surrounding area in groups of three. Because three is a crowd, there is little or no room for dishonesty, negative behavior, or negative peer interaction.

    Our door is always open at New Life House. When a graduate needs advice, someone to talk to, or just wants to hang out, the door never closes. Every graduate has become a part of the foundation of New Life House and it quickly becomes his home.
