Health and wellness
So my new book just came out! I'm so excited about it and I hope you have a chance to download it and take a look. I think you'll find some really good interesting stuff in there!
One of the things I specialize in in herbs and supplements, but I don't take a ton all the time. I think there is a time and place for each one, and I have definitely taken any of those that I've written about at some time or another. I completely believe that each has a purpose and I hope if you do read the book, you'll agree.
I've had several people ask me, "How do I know what to take and when?" In fact I get asked that a lot. Not only will this book kind of explain all that, but I think when it comes down to it, listening to our bodies is huge! Too often we forget to do that and the results are never good.
So, tell me what you think, leave a comment on the comments page and I hope you get something out of it!

Something really cool!
Anytime a new health fad or new discovery is made in the health arena, I try to check it out and be the proverbial 'guniea pig' so to speak. Recently I read an article on MSN about how this woman in Australia had cured her cancer, I believe it was thyroid cancer, eating these three fruits, pineapple, kiwi and papaya. ( I'm going to post the video below for you all to watch, it's really quite amazing. Now being a Holistic type person, I have always tried to do things naturally and have whole heartedly believed that what you eat all the time directly either destroys or enhances your body and mind.
These particular three foods, especially pineapple, contain a complex mixture of substances called bromelain which is a protein-digesting enzyme. Basically eating these fruits that contain bromelain, can eat away at the protein base around tumors, growths and even certain types of cancers. Excessive inflammation, excessive coagulation of the blood, and certain types of tumor growth may all be reduced by therapeutic does of foods containing bromelain.
After reading this, it stored it in the back of my brain for later use. A girlfriend of mine and I were having lunch and she began to tell me that after an extensive ultrasound to find out why she wasn't getting pregnant, doctors discovered she had many, and I think the number she said was like 30!, polyps in her uterus! Wow! She was scheduled for a polypectomy in 6 weeks. They had figured she had had the polyps for quite sometime and this procedure could possible get rid of them and perhaps help in her dream of becoming a mom. After hearing this, I told her what I had just read and thought maybe she might want to try it. I wasn't sure she would take my advice, but she said she would look into it and we left it at that. (BTW, after I had read the article, I started adding more of these three fruits to my raw shakes in the morning!)
I saw her again, after her procedure, and asked her how it went. She was bouncing off the walls with excitement.
"They didn't find anything!"
I looked confused.
"They didn't find anything! After you and I had lunch that day, I went straight to the store and bought organic pineapple, kiwi and papayas and since then have been making shakes with them every morning. The day of my surgery, doc came in and said 'I didn't see any polyps. Nothing was there!"
She believes, and so do I, that eating and drinking these fruits really made a difference in her healing. The only thing she had done differently was add these to her diet every morning. My friend was really excited and still has her pineapple shakes every morning. I'll keep you posted when she gets pregnant!!
So, I truly believe that food can heal, food can cure and pure, clean food can and does keep your body running optimally. This is just one of many many stories I hear all the time from friends and clients who have discovered the power to heal themselves through nutrition. It works people!!
Great first week!!
I've gotten a lot of great responses to the new site! Thanks guys and keep it coming!
This week I'm starting a new book. I'm really excited about it, and hopefully with all the research I've been doing on it over the last year, it'll be informative. I realize that with all the info that's out there, anyone can look things up whenever they have something going on that's concerning, but I also know that sometimes you just want it all in one place, in front of you, so you don't have to go searching.
As I've said previously, I have four children, and sometimes, a lot of times, things get crazy and overwhelming. My oldest son is going to EMT school, he started about a month ago, and is really loving it. Halfway through the courses the students have to do clinicals in order to take the exams and get through the school. What clinicals are is basically you have to take a day here and there to either ride on an ambulance for 12 hours or spend 8 hours in a trauma unit at the hospital. Over the weekend he spent 8 hours at the hospital helping out in the trauma unit. I really wasn't sure how he would like it, as he's very young and because it can be really insane. Well, when he got home he was really excited and shared some stories with me. His eyes were lit up, and even though he spent 8 hours high on adrenaline, watched a woman die, and helped hold down a homeless man to get him to take his meds, he was thrilled. And I was surprised. That's when I realized how much he's grown up. I wasn't much older than him when I started having children, and even then I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life other than have babies. I'm proud of him and glad that even though there's a lot of kids out there that are clueless as to what they want to do with their lives, I think there are just as many that are right on track and are even more successful than I could have ever thought possible for my generation.
That is a side note that I wanted to share with you all. Kids have it tough nowadays also. Lots of stress having to have to be and do and achieve everything so young. Like I said, I was clueless. I think I spent a lot of my time pregnant and sleep deprived with no idea what was next for me. And at the time, it was ok.
Kids today are amazing in their own right. I cheer them on and admire them in all that they have to deal with, with social media and a very 'in your face' perspective on how things 'should be' for them. Whatever they become, whatever they decide to do and the path they take, if they can make it through this incredible and at times difficult generation, I applaud them. .. I do anyway. And send lots of blessings.
Tell me your thoughts on this.
Have a healthy and happy week!
I am so totally excited about my new site! It took me literally about a month to create an entire new site with all new content, but I think in the end, even with the ginormous amount of frustration and for all the times I said "OMG! I have no idea what I'm doing!!", it was totally worth it! I love it and I'm having so much fun!
I scanned like a million, well not exactly a million but close, different sites to see which one I thought would work for my business, until I found this one which will really expand with the growth of the biz. I'm proud to say that its growing like crazy and I needed a site that could give me that and be able to connect with my followers a lot easier. I love staying connected with you all, and didn't feel like I could before. Now I have an awesome way to do that and a site that will grow right along with me! Cool Beans!!
Anyway, I would love to hear what you guys think! I would also love to know what you guys want to see more of. I want to be able to provide you all with more personalized health and wellness to help you along with whatever it is you want to better your mind, body and soul. And I want to learn from you, my awesome Healthnutters! Lets talk! Send me an email or comment below. Thanks for always being loyal!
