It’s time to take HEALTHY to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL

 

Not just the “eat right and exercise” kind of healthy, 

 

The kind of healthy that makes your 

 

CELLS HUM and your SOUL SHINE

I BELIEVE WE ARE PUT HERE TO FEEL GOOD

 

We deserve a body that moves freely without pain, a mind that is clear and calm, and a spirit that radiates with gratitude and fulfillment.

 

 

The problem though, is that our world isn’t necessarily designed to support this aim. We are under more stress, work longer hours, eat too much and move too little.

On top of that we are never taught how to be healthy or more importantly why it matters.

 

 

 

It matters because the way you feel and your state of health dictate how you live the rest of your life.

 

It’s hard to be happy when your body always hurts. It’s hard to enjoy the little things when all you can think about is a nap. It’s hard to fulfill your purpose with a body that operates at fifty percent. Sadly, for most people this is the norm.

 

 

 

Challenge the assumption that body aches, fatigue, weight gain and (insert your favorite ailment here) have to be part of your aging process

Dare to believe that you deserve better

Defy the odds

Reject the norm

Because you (yes, you!) have an amazing life waiting for you.

Revisit Your Resolution – Tips for staying healthy all year long

It was just a month ago when you strapped on your new running shoes (or snowshoes!) and made the decision to make this your healthiest year yet.   But after a few days you probably found yourself thrown face first back into your demanding schedule.   Between work, family, errands and social engagements, your health kick kicked the bucket!   If your enthusiasm for all things healthy has taken a detour, get back on track with these simple yet very effective tips. Incorporating each of these things daily can make a huge difference and they can easily fit into your busy life.   Drink more water – You’ve probably heard it a million times. Drink your eight glasses of water per day. There is a reason this tip is at the top of all the “be healthy” lists. Drinking adequate water can help you feel less hungry throughout the day. It also helps keep your muscles energized, your skin glowing and your bowels moving (this is very important!)   Eat more vegetables – How many servings of vegetables do you get per day? Are you eating a vegetable with every meal? (Yes, even breakfast!) Not only do vegetables provide essential nutrients and fiber that aides in digestion, you can also eat greater amounts of them without doing major damage to your waistline. Eating more vegetables essentially enables you to crowd out the less healthy options at the table.   Improve your sleep – If restless nights are your norm, there may be a bigger issue at hand. Nutrient deficiencies, stress and lack of exercise can all play a role.... read more

Healthy Dessert Alert! PB and Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Halloween is right around the corner and you might already have the candy stash ready to go. If you’ve been tempted by those fun sized cavity creators, try this recipe instead. It is a delicious, and insanely easy dessert that tastes just like a peanut butter cup without all of the scary ingredients. Did I mention that it has health benefits too?!   This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding has only six ingredients and three of those fall in the “superfood” category. Chia Seeds – these little guys are nutritional powerhouses! In only one ounce of chia seeds you will find 11g of fiber, 4 grams of protein, 5 grams omega 3 fats, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, Zinc, Postassium, and vitamins B1, B2 and B3. Coconut milk – Is an excellent alternative to dairy and is a good source of medium chain fatty acids including Lauric acid. In the body, Lauric acid is converted to monolaurin- an antiviral, antibacterial and antiprotozoal monoglyceride that can destroy disease causing organisms.   Make sure you go for a full fat (so the beneficial MCFA’s don’t go missing) version and look for a BPA free can. Raw Cacao powder – It’s no wonder that everybody loves chocolate. Not only does it taste good, but it packs a powerful nutritional punch! “ Cacao has more than 300 phytochemicals, including vitamins, minerals, and dietary nutrients such as: fat, carbohydrates, fiber, iron, zinc, copper, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium, and sulfur.

7 Signs Your Liver Needs Some Love

When it comes to overall health, your probably don’t think about your liver all that much. We hear a lot about the importance of a healthy heart, lungs and brain but the liver often gets overlooked. From a western standpoint, the liver is responsible for several functions including aiding digestion, removing harmful substances from the blood (detox), and storing nutrients. A healthy liver is absolutely essential for proper bodily function.   The same is true when you think of the liver as it relates to Chinese Medicine. Known as the “Army General” it is responsible for planning and execution of the body’s functions by ensuring your qi is flowing smoothly and in the right direction. Many factors of the modern lifestyle inhibit proper functioning of the liver. Things like poor diet, lack of exercise and excessive stress can all affect the liver, causing deficiency or stagnation.  Here are a few ways to tell if your liver needs a little TLC.   1)      Moodiness/Irritability – If you find that you are fluctuating between happy-go-lucky and the incredible hulk it is a telltale sign of Liver qi stagnation.   When the qi of the liver is flowing smoothly then the emotional state is even and happy. When that flow is impeded it can give rise to frustration, depression or repressed anger.   2)      Fatigue – Qi is your life force energy and the liver is responsible for keeping it moving. When it is abundant and free-flowing, your energy levels are high. When it is depleted or stagnant your energy levels are low.   3)      Eye/vision changes – The sense organ connected to... read more
