  • My Story...everyone ask me, Why am I so passionate about sound frequency technology? So here it is...Because of my life experience. I was raised in a family of traditional Medical Doctors, and highly respected this belief paradigm. I saw that traditional medicine threw a drug at everything...headaches, sniffles, pain, depression, high BP or cholesterol, pain, or even for prevention. Medicine centered around pharmaceuticals and surgery. I was well down the same path when I asked a question that changed my life journey forever. "Why are we treating symptoms and cutting out tumors and other disease, and yet never addressing the underlying problem? Why are we giving so many drugs, most of them with side affects...so we have to give other drugs to counteract those side effects...essentially creating chemical soup in the body, bankrupting the individual with the high cost of prescriptions." I thought, there must be a better way...so I became a seeker. My scholastic focus shifted from traditional mainstream medicine, to becoming a Naturopathic Doctor, only to find a similar regimen; bombarding the body with numerous costly supplements. Sure, natural supplements are so much better for your body, and they lack the negative side effects, but we were still recommending hand fulls of pills to people, and putting a dent in their pocket books. So I kept searching. I found energy work next, and became a Reiki master, as well as mastering other energy techniques. This tuned me into energy healing and the studying the Physics of the body's energy field, not just the Anatomy and Physiology. As my understanding began to broaden, the realization that we need to be addressing the human body at an atomic level became very clear to me. The body is literally an elaborate energy field...composed of 99.99999% space. Then I proceeded to complete a Masters degree in Nutrition, because that is something that neither MD's nor ND's know much about - and it is so important to health and wellness. It is said that either what yo do, or do not consume is responsible for 90% of what ails you - either through deficiency, contamination, or damaging intake choices. Whether this statistic is 100% accurate or not - I do believe you can kill or cure according to what you consume. The limitation I found at this point in my journey was that I could only help one person at a time, and there are so many people in desperate need of help. My greatest discovery has been sound frequency technology and SRT - Sonic Resonance Training. I finally found something that could relieve and ease pain, sadness, trauma, and so many other symptoms in myself and others, without having to take a pill, or have me be there in person. This is Why this discovery has become my passion...I know it can help the masses. The sound frequency software is beautifully simplistic...music for our cells...and does not require handfuls of supplements or pills, or a healer for it to be effective. This is what I see as the wave of the future in Health and Wellness. Sonic Resonance Training with VibraSonic technology is truly a gift worth having and giving; To have the ability to exercise the body passively, enhance recovery, increase cell voltage, relieve pain, release toxins, increase circulation, of blood and lymphatic fluid, prevent bone loss, clear energy blocks, increase endorphins, relieve stress and so much more. This is technology that changes the wellness paradigm. Finally - I found something that is highly effective, a one time purchase - and you can use it forever. It pays for itself many times over in savings on natural supplements and drugs, paying deductions, and chasing down medical alternatives and testing for answers. You get the gift of health and wellness with regular use of sonic vibrational technology - and there is none that surpasses that gift...you know that all to well if you have ever lost your health. Yes - the combined effect of the software and the VibraSonic machine is magic, and using the two together is best, but they work well independently as well. These technologies have changed my life and altered my destiny forever. The sound software programs, and the VibraSonic can change people lives forever, and That is what my passion stems from. My personal formula for health and wellness revolves around four pillars; (1) SRT - Sonic Resonance Training to raise cell voltage, and give the organs and all 100 trillion cells in the body the correct (2) Sound Frequencies from my custom software, (3) eating Healthy Food and (4) having a great Attitude and Alignment with source. When you put these elements together, your body will surprise you in it's ability to spontaneously heal and regenerate. Powerful...Simple...Scientific...Sacred...Harmonic Resonance is the Future of Wellness. Caroline Stites, ND, MS www.vibragenix.com/about/why-sound-frequency-technolog y-is-my-passion-by-dr-caroline/
  • It amazes me to look at the escalating incidence of obesity in our society. Besides losing the appearance of health, the increase in various disease processes continues to be an ever present issue. Obesity steals our youth and in many cases our zest for life. Often I see those with weight challenges losing the desires that had been there before. The more sedentary we get the less we desire to do. Activity breeds the desire for more activity. Adiposity, or obesity can arise from several influencing factors. The obvious would be a calorie intake greater than calorie output. For those of us blessed to not have a weight issue, the common advice is just to eat less. In many cases, this just isn’t the case. I’ve seen people starve themselves and not lose weight. The causes of obesity are many. Remember, we are unique! Hormones play a role in weight control. We have hormones that are anabolic (storing), and catabolic (metabolizing). Thyroxine is catabolic and estrogen is anabolic. Foods that act like estrogen can actually add weight, especially around the hips and thighs. Insulin is anabolic since it inhibits fat burning hormones. The more we indulge in carbohydrates, the greater the insulin release, thus greater weight gain. Where the body stores fat can tell a lot about why there is a fat issue going on. Visceral and subcutaneous fat are what create the big belly issue. This is what I’ve been seeing far too much of. When this is the case to extreme, low back pain is a usual consequence. Causative factor is usually blood sugar control issues. Frequently called a beer belly, and rightly so as alcohol and the grains all institute elevations in insulin and encourages the body to burn 36% LESS fat while encouraging greater storage of dietary fat and reduction in muscle building. Often times, hunger is really your body crying for hydration. Just 17 ounces of water can increase your metabolic rate 30% within 10 minutes and peaks around 40 minutes later. Water consumption should be half of your body weight in ounces. (Your weight 200, drink 100 ounces) Foods that help the body swap fat for muscle include; eggs, nuts, veggies, leafy greens, Exercise but don’t over train. Fat burning occurs during the rest period 24 to 48 hours aftere classic for increasing your weight. Potassium aids in the transfer of fluids in your cells. When thinking of potassium, think of veggies. The closer to nature your foods are, the greater benefit they will be to your body. Processing is always a bad idea when it comes to nourishing your body. Exercise but don’t overtrain. Fat burning occurs during the rest period 24 to 48 hours after exercise, not during the exercise. Exercise should be specific to your body type. Some are thyroid types, adrenal types, gonadal types, and pituitary types. There are studies on all these body types and how to taylor your approach to exercise specific to these areas. Sugar substitutes and monosodium glutamate act on the hypothalamus to actually increase the production of the hunger stimulating peptide hormone Ghrelin. Using diet sodas and other diet foods actually increases appetite and weight gain. Digestion is critical to metabolic burn. poor digestion is to your body what a poorly tuned carburetor is to a car. Poor energy output and greater carbon deposits. Dr John A. Briggs ND 20 N.E. Lillich St. Clatskanie, Oregon 97016 503-728-4732 jbriggs4732@charter.net
