Not only is sugar a hard habit to kick, but it could be damaging your health, causing mystery symptoms, and making you sick in ways you don’t realize.

Your Holiday Gratitude Guide

gratitude health holiday Nov 18, 2018

This holiday season, say goodbye to the blues and say hello to illuminating the path of love and light!

Think of your inner guidance as a navigation system that will notify you when you need to direct your attention to a particular area of your gratitude journey. I’ve divided up the gratitude journey for you as a roadmap of three main areas that need tender loving care during the holidays: the body, the mind, and the soul. Here are “turn-by-turn directions” to gratitude for the holidays, plus intentions and affirmations to support your path.

 

First Area: The Body

The body is an integral part of your journey to gratitude. There are many things we take for granted because we become disconnected from the body. Making a point to express gratitude for your health, strength, stamina, and ability to nourish yourself each morning before you start your day is a great way to begin on the right track. Embody gratitude even if you struggle with pain or illness –...

The Dangers of Hormonal Birth Control

Are you aware of the health risks associated with hormonal birth control? Over 100 million women worldwide use hormonal contraceptives, so you or someone you’re close to may be using it. It’s often handed out like candy to young girls who aren’t properly educated on the potential side effects and long-term health implications.

It’s always important for women to have a choice when it comes to contraception, but it should be a fully informed choice. You may find after further research that the risks outweigh the benefits and alternative approaches to pregnancy prevention and hormone health should be explored.

This post is designed to inform you of the health risks of using hormonal birth control and the ways you can balance your hormones naturally with diet, natural alternative treatments, and self-care.

 

Why is it So Widely Prescribed for Reasons Other Than Pregnancy Prevention?

Can Your Body Heal Itself?

chakras healing health illness Oct 29, 2018

Now, more than ever, it’s important for us to go within to take charge of our health.


The statistics are bleak.

In 2018, an estimated 1,735,350 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States.

As many as 2 out of 5 Americans are expected to develop type 2 diabetes in their lifetime.

Nationwide, over 40 million people  suffer from anxiety and depression is the leading cause of disability.

If you have health concerns or you’re struggling with illness, there is hope. Open your heart and believe in your ability to tap into the biggest healing force of all: the power of loving yourself.

 

From my heart to yours, I encourage you to see illness as an invitation.

An invitation to create a conscious shift in your life toward self-love and trust. You MUST make the shift to truly understand the miracles within.

Nurturing your body/mind/soul connection is your greatest mission in life.

Healing from within is a journey, and you may find your TRUE self along...

The Dangers of Juice Cleanses

Juice cleanses and other all-liquid detox diets are often glorified as “cure-alls.” Many promises are made with “quick-fix” program marketing that provide several days or weeks of juices for a hefty fee. These companies dole out hope for feeling and looking better FAST with colorful drinks and clever branding. Many people hear about these programs and try to create their own at home.

Desperation for a solution to a weight management or health problem can lead to drastic measures like these. Don’t be fooled by the hype! I have researched heavily and speak from many years of experience as an integrative health practitioner when I say: these fad diets can do more harm than good. In this article, I will help you understand why these liquid-only juicing protocols should be avoided unless prescribed by a trusted professional who can provide you with guidance on what steps you can take on your own to look and feel better.

Raw juices do contain lots of...

Naturally Heal Digestive Issues!

digestion gut health Apr 16, 2018

Digestive issues are one of the most common causes for concern I hear from my patients. Symptoms such as bloating, stomach pains, heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, and even weight-management struggles can be linked to disruption of healthy gastrointestinal (G.I.) processes. Living with untreated chronic digestive issues can result in severe health complications. 

Many suffer silently, thinking these ailments are just a normal part of life or a side effect of aging. There is hope! Here, I share my best advice from over 20 years of practice in integrative, regenerative, and energy medicine for you to start healing your G.I. system.

I created this video answering the top three questions about this topic:

  1. What are some common signs indicating digestive issues?
  2. What can you do to better support your digestive health?
  3. How can energy work help heal digestive issues?

As explored in the video, it’s immensely important to understand that healthy digestive processes are crucial...

How to Choose a Health Practitioner: The Difference Between a Health Coach & an Integrative Medical Practitioner

I get a lot of questions about this, so I thought it would be a good time to get some clarity on the different types of practitioners out there, and which one is right for you.

Choosing a professional to guide you on your health journey is one of the most important decisions you can make. The person you choose can make a real difference to the outcome you get. 

I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to explain a little bit about a couple of the different modalities that are out there to help you in making a decision from a place of knowledge, and also share what it is I offer to my clients.

 

Let's start with a Health Coach:

These are becoming more and more popular in the field of natural therapies, with quite a few celebrities and media personalities taking on this role.

A health coach is someone who offers support and advice to people to assist...

3 Signs That You Might Be Suffering From Leaky Gut

Leaky Gut or Intestinal Hyper-permeability is such an important topic in my daily life and work. Gut Health is linked to so many functions in the body: Digestion, Hormone Metabolism, Brain Function (Serotonin), Skin health, Happiness, and overall well-being.

In most cases people don’t feel well, or feel sluggish when gut is overpopulated with offending agents such as: Candida Albicans overgrowth, bad bacteria, viruses, parasites. Not only does this drain our energy physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. 

Even though my work is primarily focused on Chakra Clearing and Balancing, I always address Gut Health, and the importance of healthy and supportive eating habits. Physical wellbeing can’t be excluded from Spiritual and Mental well-being. All of the systems work in unison.

When Gut is off balance, then our chakras are off balance as well. Most of the time I recognize a repeating pattern in most of my patients: when Gut health is not addressed, the...
