Rejuvenation vs Supplementation
by Gloria Gilbère, N.D., D.A.Hom., PhD., Wholistic Rejuvenist
After being a natural health professional for more than 30 years, I am constantly asked by clients, health care professionals, aestheticians, spa owners, and educators about teaching others the foundation of my successes gained by both personal and professional experiences in dealing with some of the most challenging health disorders that defy conventional diagnosis and treatment. I truly believe that unless we’ve been forced to walk the same path as our clients, we can never truly understand what works and what doesn’t – unfortunately, I became a victim of a life-threatening disorder
– fortunately, I recovered and have maintained my health for over 10 years to date, as fully described in the latest revised edition of my book I was Poisoned by my body…and my life 10 years after recovery.
Readers and clients are now asking me to provide an explanation of what I’m teaching in my certificated course to earn the title Wholistic Rejuvenist – allow me to provide you with a brief outline.
What is Wholistic Skin & Body Rejuvenation?
It is – Living longer, experiencing life while not showing evidence of those experiences;
It is – Finding non-drug solutions when conventional testing degrades your condition and symptoms by telling you “everything is within normal range.” You know it’s not all in your head – you don’t have a Prozac® deficiency;
It is – Realizing our life is half-full, not half-empty, and that 50 is the new 30, 60 the new 40 and 70 the new 50…so much to look forward to;
It is – Creating a healthy glow from the inside-out that defies chronological aging;
It is – Making dietary changes to enhance rejuvenation, avoiding choices that accelerate the aging processes;
It is – Living wholistically healthier (body, mind & spirit);
It is – Acknowledging that while chronological aging is inevitable – showing, acting and feeling our age is a part of life in which we can make the decision not to participate;
It is – Preserving and rejuvenating mental capacities – the skin and mind need similar nourishment;
It is – Understanding the implications of inflammation on aging;
It is – Remembering that you don’t stop laughing because you age – you age because you stop laughing.

Note: The entire WSBR course is endorsed as continuing education for skin care and spa professionals by Pure Aesthetics School of Natural Skin Care (Tucson, Arizona, USA) and for colon hydro-therapists by the Scottsdale School for Colon Health (Scottsdale, Arizona, USA). Most countries and state have continuing education reciprocity for these professions.
Body Rejuvenation is not a novel new idea; your body is continually on “auto-pilot” cleansing and rejuvenating itself without conscious effort. This entire bio-mechanical process was automatically activated while you were still in your mother’s womb and has continued around the clock ever since.
Unfortunately, because the process is “invisible”, many individuals go about the process of daily living without giving any thought to the accumulated toxins that are stored within the body – “dumping” them into the organs of detoxification faster than their ability to be neutralized, often manifesting as unexplained, undiagnosed and misdiagnosed disorders including those of the skin and aging.
We know it’s a good idea to avoid toxic exposures from, let’s say pesticides, volatile paints/thinners/varnishes, insecticides, petrochemicals etc. What we don’t often consider is that merely living in a modern chemical world exposes us to thousands of chemicals daily (air, water, food, household & laundry products, personal care products, synthetic fragrances, food preservatives/additives/flavor enhancers etc.) and chemicals that we inhale and absorb – everyone a foreign, un-natural substance that is either metabolized by our organs or stored within the body, causing premature aging and eventual dis-ease.
Internal cleansing protocols, specific periodic deep cleaning and daily maintenance increase your body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate itself by reducing the overall toxic load – allowing the organs to proceed with their self-cleaning duties.
Researchers at the U.S. Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) analyzed samples of blood and urine from 2,500 men, women and children and identified hundreds of man-made chemicals that were being stored within the body – rejuvenation requires finding safe alternatives as well as safe methods of providing the body the “tools” it needs to rebuild.
Wholistic rejuvenation addresses health through a process of safe time-proven protocols to reduce the overall toxic load of the specific organs that make-up the body’s self-cleansing and rejuvenation processes, including:
- The liver
- The intestines
- The lungs
- The kidneys
- The skin
- The lymphatics
The skin and bodily manifestations of premature aging and dis-orders are a direct reflection of intestinal and liver health. In order to stay looking and feeling radiant, our internal operating systems must be able to “shine” rather than be “clogged” with toxic accumulation. WSBR™ programs teach how to bring the body into order from dis-order and how to grow old without aging.
“As I grow older, grace me with forgiveness for those who hurt me, wisdom to forget the people I never liked and the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.”
Gloria Gilbère, N.D., D.A.Hom., Ph.D., CWR
Scientists validate that all disease is a result of environmental and/or internal toxicity.
WSBRTM certificated courses allow the skin and health care professional, to understand, implement and teach rejuvenation principles to their clients and patients, naturally.
WSBR courses are taught around the world and 6 times a year in the U.S.
Each of four modules encompasses 16 hours of classroom instruction along with an additional 4 hour practicum at the instructor level.
When you seek the advice of a WSBR consultant they provide you the foundational “tools” on which you can proceed to build a strong structure of health. The acronym WSBR came to be as more and more of my recovered clients where hearing friends, family and co-workers whispering “he/she looks and feels better than they have in years, what are they doing different?”
