I have planned many of my personal cleanses to coincide with the full moon, as this is an excellent time for supporting release, catharsis, and detoxification. Parasites and microbes become most activated at the full moon and thus are most vulnerable for elimination if the proper approach is taken. Because of these supportive elements, I decided I would schedule a week-long juice fast and liver cleanse with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse of May 2021. This is the first time I hav
Because of the high-level of toxic bombardment we all are exposed to by living in our modern world, I am a strong advocate for physical cleansing and regular detoxification. I advise that we all partake in a Full Body Cleanse 1-2 times each year and a Liver-Gallbladder Flush 4 times each year. You can liken these therapies to getting your fluids flushed or getting an oil change in your vehicle - necessary services to ensure the long-term function and performance. There are ad
Ahhh Sugar. Delightfully sweet... and oh so dangerous! Most people don't think of sugar as dangerous, yet this sweet treat can be the base cause to a whole host of physical ailments. Choose wisely First, let me clarify sugar. I am referring to the refined sugars, such as high fructose corn syrup, refined cane sugar, and it's sneaky sister "brown sugar" (which is really just white sugar with "caramel" coloring.) Before I lay down some sad sugar facts, I will say this - anyone
Our precious planet is such an amazing living organism. She provides for us an abundance of nourishment and beauty, as well as all we need to maintain or regain physical health.
I give thanks for this as I write now regarding women’s reproductive and menstrual health, and how to maintain healthy hormones. Has Pain become Normal to Us? Many women I meet share with me their struggles regarding menstruation and hormones. PMS that brings moodiness and depression, painful cramps,
It is believed that 80% or more of our immune strength lives in and comes from our digestive tract - the gut, the intestines, and the colon. That means that our digestive health is directly related to immune health.
In a day and age with so many illnesses, viruses, toxins, and pathogens, it seems wise to have a good fortress of defense against potential illness causing invaders.
It then also seems wise to have a strong and healthy digestive system to help keep our immune st
Antioxidants are substances that protect cells from the damage caused by unstable molecules known as free radicals. Free radical damage can lead to cancer, heart disease, accelerated aging, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, inflammation, and other deteriorating conditions. Basically, antioxidants stop "oxidation" - think of rust deteriorating an object- this is similar to how oxidation affects the body. Another reason to choose organic There are many foods and herbs that are
Although it is mass produced, mass promoted, legal, and ingested by a multitude of people all over the world, most people don’t ever consider or understand the spiritual consequences of drinking alcohol. Etymology Let’s begin by taking a look at the etymology of the word alcohol. Etymology means the root of the word – where it is derived from. The word “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT”, and gives root origins to the English term for “g
What happens to emotions that we ignore, repress, deny, or avoid feeling? Can these denied feelings simply disappear or lose their life force? Or could they become something else, something heavy and burdensome? Nowadays we move fast and have a lot to do. We have schedules sky-high and planners packed thick with appointments and duties to fulfill. Do we have time to break down and cry all day? Do we make time for our mental and emotional health? The truth is most people do no
As I am finishing up an amazing 3-week Full Body Cleanse program, I have been returning to the understanding of how key it is to let go for new energy to be activated. So often we focus on how to improve our life, our health, and our well being, yet we miss one of the most crucial components to achieving improvement. We can get caught up on the concept of building and accumulating and how we can add more of something in hopes to make something better. Many of us go out and b
There seems to be a pill or medication for just about everything these days. Our culture has sped ahead to the quick-fix way of living, including how we address our health issues. This get-it-done-fast lifestyle has been the perfect playing field for Big Pharma. The pharmaceutical industry has infiltrated modern medicine and convinced the masses that they have the perfect solution for whatever ails you. The loyal allegiance and trust of the majority of the population have hel
So much of my work in the healing arts has been helping to catalyze people towards empowerment, and living a life of inspiration and purpose. Yet the path of getting there can be tricky and rocky, and require time for deeply focused personal healing and even times of deconstructing ourselves, in order to rise into a higher level of experiencing and expressing life. There are many ways that we have been taught and programmed to follow a pattern of repressing and hiding our emo
Gotu Kola (centella asiatica) is an exceptional herb native to Asia that has been revered in both Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic traditions. This medicinal plant is helpful for supporting longevity, restoring adrenal health, reducing stress and anxiety, treating skin conditions, supporting cognitive functions, nourishing the reproductive organs, the bladder, kidneys, and the brain. Gotu Kola is considered an adaptogen or adaptogenic herb. An adaptogen is des
