Spring allergies are supposed to happen in the spring, right? Mmm hmm. Unless, of course, unseasonably warm air makes its way through your neck of the woods ahead of time. Even if it doesn’t stick around, the warmth will cause buds to pop and pollen to be released, turning your cozy winter existence into a premature sneeze-fest! So learn 3 easy things you can do.
Good health, or poor health and illness, begins with digestion. Learn more about common digestive issues and what you can do to support the healing of the digestive system.
Believe it or not, the “gut” (also called digestive tract, intestinal tract, digestive system) is where your health and immunity begins. It is also tied in with the mind in a big way; the mind and gut together determine how well you break down food into the nutrients that fuel your cells. For this reason, gut health is the first priority of my wellness programs.
“I have no energy!” These are 4 words that I hear all the time from my clients! Whether they have trouble getting up and going in the morning or they crash and burn in the mid-afternoon hours, lack of energy is very, very frustrating (and can be quite worrisome) to say the least. Energy and hormone balance depend upon one […]
The “gut”. Another term for the digestive tract. This part of the body that was once deemed significant only for the digestion of food to produce energy now is also known for it’s HUGE role in overall health and immune function. This is exciting news on many fronts and confirms my belief that the gut must be addressed at the very onset of any healing journey. So what does “leaky gut” mean? Find out here.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with coconut oil, while slightly less dense in texture, its appearance is similar to that of shortening or lard.

It has sort of a nutty vanilla flavor, slightly richer than butter with none of the bitterness of olive oil.
Triphala is a popular Ayurvedic herbal formula that is considered to be the most balanced of all herbal compounds and thus has been the cornerstone of herbal therapies in India over thousands of years. The name Triphala means “three fruits” which makes sense because this formula is comprised of the three Indian fruits Amla (Emblica officinalis), Behada (Terminalia belerica), and Harada (Terminalia chebula).
No two people have the same fingerprint, right? That’s pretty amazing. What’s even more amazing is that your fingerprint is not the only part of you that is biologically unique. It turns out the bacteria that reside in your gut and are responsible for your health, to a large degree, are as exclusive to you as that fingerprint!
Check out your pantry before you read this. Read the ingredient labels of the foods you purchase to see how many include Carrageenan as an ingredient. I bet you’ll be surprised as to how prevalent this ingredient is, even in organic foods. That must mean it’s healthy, right? Or at least not unhealthy. Hmmm, let’s look further into that.
Bacteria get a bad rap. Ironic but true, that statement may hold more validity than ever suspected, despite being written at a time when society uses excessive hygiene in a futile attempt to eliminate all bacteria! Antibacterial wipes, antibacterial soap, antibacterial hand sanitizer; the list of products created as a protective shield against nasty germs and microbes has become a billion-dollar market that continues to grow daily. We are all scared; scared of the next outbreak; scared of the next microbe strain that may take out civilization.
