Minerals are to the body as spark plugs are to a car – they are necessary to make the engine run. The human body doesn’t have an engine, per se, but each cell manufactures energy, similar to an engine. Unless, of course, minerals and other nutrients are missing, at which point energy cannot be produced. When energy isn’t produced, hormones can’t be either.
Without water, the body can’t live. Probably everyone would accept that as a fact. But what happens when we drink water, but we just don’t drink enough water? And what is enough water anyway? I can tell you this: it’s impossible to get and stay healthy if you are dehydrated.
The bummer of it is, more of us are dehydrated than you might imagine. As a result, the number of people suffering from pain, excess weight, lack of energy, hormone imbalance and countless other common health concerns is far higher than it needs to be. All of those things can be reversed with optimal water intake.
These days it seems like we’re all hating on our hormones. No matter what stage of life we’re in – puberty, child-bearing or menopause and beyond – we women seem to be in a constant battle to regain control of these funky little chemical messengers!

Am I implying that stress is to blame for health concerns? Yes I am. Stress can physical or emotional, but regardless of its root cause, it becomes a vicious cycle, each leading to the other. This is where biochemistry and emotions intertwine, so to address the physical aspects of stress and disease without addressing the emotions will short-change the healing process.
Homeostasis … also called equilibrium or balance. The body is in a constant state of adjustment to achieve homeostasis in order to keep us alive and healthy. So, when left to its own devices, we can pretty much count on our bodies to do the “right” thing for survival. For healing. Pretty amazing, eh?
“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 […]
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. Because the melting point is on the higher side (about 75 degrees F.), it is usually in solid form until heated. It has sort of a nutty vanilla flavor, slightly richer than butter with none of the bitterness of olive oil.
If you’re looking for an energy boost, there are better things to turn to than energy drinks. Caffeine, sugar (or aspartame in the sugar-free versions), artificial flavors and colors and overall acidity are some of the reasons to avoid them. For instance, first and foremost, caffeine is the main energy-boosting ingredient in many of these […]
Whether you are lacking energy, experiencing issues with dry skin, wrinkles or acne, or even if you are having trouble losing a few stubborn, excess pounds, you may not need to look further than your water faucet for a solution.
