3 things you can do to improve your health….

Can I tell you something? There’s something that I didn’t realize when I first started working one-on-one with people who want to make their health and wellness a priority, people who are sick of feeling less than amazing, and people who are confused about who to listen to for advice. Here it is: Most of us already know what we need to be doing to improve our health! There is a lot of information (and mis-information) when it comes to the foods we eat. Just look at the variety of books in the ‘diet’ or ‘health’ section of your local bookstore. But when it comes down to it, we still know the basic things we should be doing to improve our health. In fact, when I ask my clients “What are three things you think you could be doing, to improve your health?” I get similar answers each time: Be more active Stop eating _______ or stop drinking ________ (or stop […]

✔︎All ABOUT Epsom Salt Baths PLUS Recipes!

  Epsom salts have been used by many different cultures for hundreds of years. They have a number of different beneficial properties and are used in gardening, household cleaning and detoxifying the body. These salts are very inexpensive and can be purchased at bulk discounts in garden centers nearly everywhere. Using Epsom salt baths is an advanced detoxification strategy that has remarkable health benefits. Epsom salts are named for a bitter saline spring located at Epsom in Surrey, England. Epsom is different than traditional salts in that it is actually a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.

Using a powerful mineral base such as Epsom salts in a […]

🌱8 SIMPLE Truths about Detox

8 Truths You Should Know About Detox 1.  Many people get worse before they get better. Remember symptoms we suppressed for years because of poor eating and poor self-care. Detox opens the pathway for poor health to be reversed and released. BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF.  While the body cleanses, symptoms will reappear, this is known as a “healing crisis” it’s a GOOD thing! 2.  True health and wellness takes time.

LOVE YOUR LIVER

LOVE YOUR LIVER

Take care of your liver, nurture your liver, love your liver and it will LOVE you back for a long time.   The liver filters and processes blood as it circulates through the body. It metabolizes nutrients, detoxifies harmful substances, makes blood clotting proteins, and performs many other vital functions. The cells in the liver contain proteins called enzymes that drive these chemical reactions. The liver also stores some nutrients, such as vitamin A, iron, and other minerals. It produces cholesterol and certain important proteins, such as albumin. It produces clotting factors, chemicals needed to help blood clot. It breaks down (metabolizes) alcohol and many drugs. We live in a world bombarded by toxins everywhere we turn, we all could use some daily detoxification tools.  In order to truly heal my gut, I MUST be detoxing well every day.  The lymph and liver need our daily attention to succeed with overall health and that includes OUR gut.
