How to Stay Healthy Throughout the Holidays!

The best way to stay healthy throughout the holidays:

 Learn how to best take care of yourself! 

Especially, before getting together with family and friends.

Holiday time can be very chaotic.

With all the party invites to send and receive; seasonal foods to prepare and ingest; gifts to be decided on, buy & wrap; along with family members to contend with….

We all know that families are a highly complex web of unique individual’s.

Each bringing their own life experiences, pain and trauma’s with them wherever they go.

Some individual’s feel compelled to hang on to those trauma’s and inflict their pain on anyone close to them, especially around the holidays!

Just remember that we all have free will and the ability to choose how we act and react to life and the choices of the people in it.

If you struggle with the holidays, no matter what the cause, there are a few things you can do, that will help you to;

Survive the holidays with your sanity and health intact!

In other words – 

How to have a Healthy Holiday:

(taken from my Holiday Survival Kit!)

~ Eat as cleanly and Ketogenically as you can. Reduce the amount of processed carbohydrates you eat. Try to eat moderate amounts of protein and increase your consumption of healthy fats, which feed the brain stable energy!

We all know how much sugar spikes our energy and mood up and down. This chaos in digestion will only glorify any chaos going on at a mental and emotional level.

I get that we are all going to imbibe in sugary things over the holidays. So my suggestion is to simply to do so in moderation and with self awareness. 

~ Reduce and eliminate toxins. Drink at least one glass of purified water with the juice of half a real lemon, every day. The best time, is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. 

You can also get my Hangover kit; which has specific remedies to help you cleanse and detox any toxins. 

~ Take a quality supplement to help balance your energy and mood. Choose one that is in as much whole food form as possible, to ensure you absorb it all and create no extra toxins or imbalances.

Make sure that it contains lots of minerals and B vitamins, as these support your adrenals. When we are stressed, it is the adrenals that trigger our “fight or flight” symptoms, leading to fatigue and foggy thinking.

My two favourite, whole food supplements are SolarStrips and Prodigy 5.

~ Get qualitative sleep and rest. Late nights and early mornings are a huge part of the Holidays. However, getting enough sleep is vital to coping with the emotional and mental issues that arise when dealing with complex families!

If you struggle with your sleep, you can try these support tools:

Frequensea and Solarstrips have done wonders to help many of my clients resolve old sleep issues.

You can also try L-Glutamine and/or L-Tyrosine, 1000mg divided into 2 doses, can be taken daily near bedtime to help you sleep easier and more fully.

Another trick I use is ear plugs! They are a godsend when I am away from home and not used to the strange noises. I sleep like a log when I can’t hear any noise.

Body work – I highly suggest you take some time just prior to, or over the holidays to go and get some physical body work done. this is a great way to prepare and pamper yourself. Massage in any form is pure bliss! Acupuncture can help open up your life force which will allow you to flow and be more energized. Even a facial, mani or pedi is worth the time and money if it brings you a peaceful state of mind.

Purposefully taking time for yourself is a positive step in Self Love!

Mental and Emotional Support

Sometimes when you are away from home, or even at home for that matter during the holidays, you feel trapped by circumstances. Always remember that you have a choice at any time to walk away, literally! 

If you are somewhere and feeling unsettled or upset, simply go outside for a walk. Focus your mind on something that brings joy to your heart. It can be anything, provided it settles your thoughts and emotions on to a single event or time where you felt complete peace and joy. Sometime just breathing in the life energy of the universe goes a long way. Stay focused on this cherished moment as long as you can, until you feel relaxed physically, calm and at peace, mentally and emotionally.

Another difficult area that comes up, when extended families get together is personal beliefs. Everyone has beliefs, we are born into them, and we develop them as we go through life. Beliefs are neither right nor wrong, they are simply where you are as an individual right now. Problems arise, when individuals feel the need to impinge their belief on to you. As long as your belief’s about yourself and your life is creating positive growth then there is no need to change it.

A healthy belief is one you can let go of when the time is right to move on. When someone you know and love, or like, becomes intent on forcing their opinion on you, there are a few things you can do to minimize this stress.

~ Recognize your own beliefs. The moment you feel the tension building within yourself, know that you are being confronted with someone else’s belief, that is not necessarily resonating with you. Take a deep breath stay calm and politely listen or quietly excuse yourself and walk away. Unhealthy people doggedly hang on to their beliefs with passion and force. They ‘believe’ that they are always right and that they must “Save everyone else from their mistakes!” To get in to an argument with someone over individual beliefs, creates what we call Emotional Plague Reactions. We all know what this is, it’s when beliefs or rigid ideas get thrown around, emotions get high and very heated. However, nothing good ever comes of these debates! The best way to avoid this conflict is to have compassion for the individual. Look objectively at them as they are getting all “wound” up and realize how mired they are in their own conflict!

~ The second thing you can do, is, not get in to a battle of wills. It would be fruitless and generally leads to conflicts. It is your false ego or weak sense of self that wants to “prove them wrong” or “show them the right way”. Your True sense of self knows that it doesn’t really matter what someone else thinks or believes, provided you know and honour your own Self! So if you have chosen to listen instead of walk away, do so with quiet Self dignity. Do not try to correct them, simply acknowledge what they are saying without having to accept or out right deny. It is impossible to get in an argument with someone who doesn’t argue!

~ Honour your own emotions. If you find that during any discussion that you do get emotionally caught up in it, know that those emotions are yours! Honour them, by acknowledging them quietly within yourself. Admit that you have some deep belief surrounding this as well; that can be worked on by yourself at a later date. If you can at the time, make a mental note of the emotions and thoughts which are are triggered in you by the other person. Know that these are your old beliefs and emotional trauma’s that you are still hanging on to somewhere deep inside. They are best worked on however, when you can objectively process them by yourself or with a qualified practitioner. Not during what should be a joyful celebration of family and friends!

~ Choose a positive outlook. Sounds simple enough, but I know how hard it can be to stay positive during family get togethers. Other people’s struggles and views can become overwhelming. If you make a personal commitment to yourself today, to stay as positive as possible, and are able to remind yourself often; it will help to lessen the pull of other’s negativity.

~ Learn to say NO with grace! One of the main reason’s we often get overwhelmed during the holidays, is an inability to put up our own boundaries. It can be hard to say no to loved ones. However, the best way to save your own health and sanity during hectic times is to decide what you truly can and want to do and what you can’t and don’t want to do. Be a little narcissistic this holiday season, but in a healthy way!

~ Take time for yourself. With all the rush and travel of the holiday’s, be sure to take some time; either daily, or every few days to find some time to slow down and honour yourself. You can do this with some simple “me” time like a nice soak in the tub, purposeful relaxation techniques or even booking some pampering time, such as, a hot stone massage, deep tissue work, mani or pedi, or what ever helps you to slow down and unwind. 

~ Use Dynamic Medicine to release unwanted emotions and beliefs. My absolute favourite way to release anything, is with Dynamic Medicine.

Did you know that NO TWO SIMILAR DIS-EASE STATES CAN RESIDE WITHIN THE LIFE FORCE AT ONE TIME! An actual true fact of the human organism.  Thus, when you take Dynamic Medicine that is designed for a specific state or issue, such as the Wholistic Overload rx in my Holiday Survival kit, that any feelings and mental connections to what overloads you will be released. It works quickly, is safe and highly effective.

Why not give it a try, what have you got to lose besides unwanted emotional and mental baggage!!

I hope that these tips and suggestions; which are all taken from my Holiday Survival Kit, help you to indeed have a Very Merry, Healthy Christmas!!

Wishing you all a Very Merry and Healthy Holiday season.

As always, let me know your thoughts, your struggles and ways that I can help support you.

The Best All Natural Tools to Regain and Maintain Whole Health!

Are you struggling to maintain your health on a daily basis?

Do you often feel tired, achey, unhappy and rundown, no matter what you seem to do?

Are you ready to make some real qualitative changes to end your health struggles?

No matter what kind of health struggles you have RIGHT NOW; as long as you are alive and ticking and willing to do something about it, you CAN regain greater whole health.

The key is being willing to do the work! No matter what it takes.

After over 30 years in the natural health movement, I still wake up excited every day knowing that I will probably learn something new in the health world. 

I keep my mind, eyes and heart open to the possibilities that abound. With the constant evolution of science, that is digging deeper into the physical as well as the soul and spiritual realms. I am greeted each day with some new discovery that I can use for my health, as well as, the health of my wonderful clients.

With Mercury, the planet of communication and information retrograde right now, I’ve been doing some reflecting on what changes I have made in my practice over the last year.

balance-476x270-1

What new tools have I discovered and implemented? What transformations have I been ready and willing to work through and how has it all affected my life?

I have to say, that I am loving how strong the natural health movement is right now.

We all know that taking care of our health, BEFORE something happens is vital.

We also know that the more natural approach is safer and healthier in the long run. Natural medicine does not have “side effects” like conventional medicine. They creating healing reactions instead, which ultimately frees the life force of the impingement, instead of suppressing it.

There is an incredible wealth of options for us today, to take full control of our health and our destiny, in a natural and truly scientific way.

Without further ado, here are my reflections;

The Best, All Natural Tools to Regain and Maintain Whole Health,

as I see it right now.

Who knows, next year might be a whole new ball game! But for now, here is what has helped me, my loved ones and my clients make some qualitative changes in their whole health over the last year.

Number 1 is – Bio-available, raw, whole food nutrients.

Yep, that’s a mouthful, but a vital first step in recovering your health. We all know that we need to take care of our body, but we often do a piss poor job of it. If left to our instincts we would do a fabulous job of eating only when truly hungry, eating only high quality nutrients, getting the right amount of rest and fluids etc. Yet, because we have this highly evolved brain, that can think independently of our inner knowing, and is often overrun by false beliefs and mislead information; we often override our natural instincts and go with what in the moment, looks and tastes good. Whether, it is good for us or not! 

So, how do we help support ourselves with one hand, while we sabotage ourselves with the other?

By using the best damn nutritional support tools on the planet. Created by an amazing company called Forever Green!

I have searched high and low over the last 10 years for a company that was creating nutrients that are as pure and natural as God intended. I was blessed a year and a half ago to come across this company and I am loving it more each day!

My absolute go to every day is – Solarstrips every day whole food nutrients in a dissolvable breath strip! and sometimes I take 2 if feeling over done.

Pure, Freuquensea and Azul pure raw, are whole food supplements full of anti-oxidants to boost immunity and heal cells. I generally add these into the mix with the change of seasons, to boost immunity and cellular energy. Right now, I’m taking an ounce of Frequensea daily with my Solarstrip.

or, Pulse 8 for the heart, Aim to boost metabolism, or Retrome to regenerate from the inside out.

Do you know someone who is trying to improve there health with daily supplements? If they are taking one of those hard, packed crappy multi’s; which are toxically made, mostly pee out, while the rest is causing further imbalances!!? Then I highly suggest you forward them this blog post or these links.

Their health is totally worth it!

Number 2 is – Creating Healthier Habits and Lifestyle.

By this I mean evaluate what is working in your life right now and what isn’t. Begin to make small daily changes in the areas that most need it, to improve your whole health.

screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-3-47-09-pm

  • If you know; that eating fast, fried foods every day is bad for your health, which it is! Then do something about it. Maybe it’s not fast food, but simply too much over processed, or poor quality foods. If so, I suggest you take the time to love yourself! Schedule time each week to go to a farmers or local market and buy healthier foods. 

By healthier foods I mean; as close to nature as possible, aka lots of veggies, fruits in the berry family, proteins, like clean meats, nuts, seeds, (lentils and beans, if you’re not struggling with health or weight issues) and lots of healthy fats, like butter, coconut oil, olive oil, olives and avocado. I suggest each meal consist of 75% healthy fats for optimum energy and to feed your endocrine (hormone system), 10 – 15% raw, lightly cooked carbs like; veggies & fruit and 5 – 10% protein.

  • If you know; that one “friend” or family member in your life, that is sucking the life out of you, every time you see them! Maybe it’s time to let them go. And YES you can fire family members from your life. If they are not in a resonant, unconditionally loving relationship with you, remove them, as gracefully as you can.
  • If you know; that adding some exercise to your daily routine is going to boost your feel good hormone. Improve your metabolic rate and balance your insulin so you have consistent energy; then find a way to do it! Even if it’s a simple quick walk around your block when you get home at night from work, before you do anything else. It’s a start.

Find some time to really re-assess your habits and lifestyle. Change is always good!

Remember it takes 21 days to fully change a habit.

Try committing to a few simple life affirming habits for the next 21 days and see how your life transforms.

Number 3 is – Let go of any old unwanted thoughts, emotions and beliefs that are no longer serving you!

You can’t have whole health by just fixing your physical symptoms.

Whole health means taking ownership of any thoughts, emotions or beliefs that rule your life in a negative way.

Try not to live in Denial, take responsibility of your own thoughts, feelings and actions. In other words, be Due Diligent (aka own your own schit!!) Always be willing to release all old unwanted baggage and allow yourself to receive new circumstances, feelings and states.

Self Evolution is a never ending process of

self reflection, conscious choices,

releasing, allowing and receiving.

My absolute favourite tool to release unwanted thoughts, emotions or beliefs is Dynamic Medicine!

Dynamic Medicine is a system of healing that follows all natural laws and principles to release the “State” of an issue. All mental, emotional and physical illness, first starts as a state or resonance with something.

When you succumb to an acute illness like pneumonia, you first have to be susceptible. Which can be due to inherent miasms, poor diet, stress and overwhelm. The sate of mind that connects one to this illness is feeling completely and utterly over done by life. Complete exhaustion, mentally, emotionally and physically.

One way to know if you are “carrying” too much mental and emotional stress or inherent states that are not supporting you in a healthy way; is to objectively view your day to day life.

  • Are there specific emotions that keep getting triggered daily?
  • Are there consistent, negative thoughts and actions you keep doing, that are leading to your unhappiness?

If so, there are underlying states or old trauma’s that you haven’t released fully and they are “AFFECTING” your day to day life. 

In order to change these, you need to fully connect with them, bring them into your awareness, and then find the right support tool that can help you fully release and move beyond them. aka Dynamic Medicine. 

If you’d like to experience the depth of clearing you can get with Dynamic Medicine, at the lowest possible cost, I highly suggest you try one of my Ultimate Wholistic Healing Kits!

and look for the one kit that you connect with the most and order today. It will be mailed directly to your home, along with an immediate download of a work book, full of all kinds of support tools, to help you resolve that issue on every level.

The key to regaining and maintaining your whole health, is to take one day at a time, change one thing at a time and be kind and patient with yourself. 

Remember, it is YOUR life journey, make the most of it!!

How to Break Free from Victimization!

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by life? Like a victim to fate? That you have no real say over your life?

Maybe you’ve had one of those moments (or many), where you felt like you had no control over external events. That someone and everyone had or has, more power over your thoughts, feelings and actions than you do?

If so, you are not alone. I’ve been there, lived it, struggled through it, and found a way out.

If you would like to take back your self power and break free from victimization, the first thing to do is –

Believe that your thoughts, beliefs and feelings control your every choice and action in life!

If you struggle to understand this, then this is the very reason why you are a victim to fate.

We are all born into unhealthy beliefs structures, in one form or another. Of course, there is a deeper and higher personal evolutionary reason behind this. But for now, suffice it to say that you are who you are today because of these family beliefs.

However, You do not need to be a victim to these beliefs.

You see, here is the kicker, by the time we hit our teens and early 20’s we are so caught up in being someone or something that we are not; to please our family, peers and society. Or, maybe to rebel, because deep down inside, we know these beliefs are not right; but we don’t know how to break free of them other than to go to extremes.

Either way, you are a pleaser and forsaken your true self to fit in, or you are a rebel and forsaken your true self to avoid fitting in!

What ever STATE you resonate with inside, you become that person. That person is not the TRUE YOU!

Whether you believe you are a victim, a loner, an athlete, ugly or beautiful, it is all simply your perception of your external self. Not who you truly are inside. Inside we are all divinely perfect. You can change your perception if you choose to.

I’m not saying it’s easy, but it is totally possible.

You have to be ready and willing to want to change. You have to find your own inner strength, in order to change an old belief. Only you can change you!

If you are truly ready to transform yourself, and break free from the victimization in you life; then –

All you need to do is;

 Decide what you want to change,

Ask for help,

Begin to believe in a new possibility,

Put in the conscious effort every day,

to change what you don’t like – to what you do,

By infusing yourself with the new thoughts and emotions,

you want to have.

Be prepared to feel uncomfortable while transitioning.

One tiny step every day, will take you further than no step!

What you think and feel, enforces what you believe and vis-a-versa. So the trick to changing an old belief, is changing your thoughts, the emotions those thoughts create and your outer actions to enforce your new beliefs about yourself.

Just as your inner beliefs create your outer reality, your inner state creates your outer health. In other words, if you believe you are a victim, you enforce this state with your thoughts, feelings and actions. Which then creates outer events and circumstances to enforce what you believe. 

People will always treat you according to the energy you put out. Whether, you believe this or not.

Are you ready to change being powerless and start making your own life choices?

If you answered unequivocally YES! Be sure to check out my Whole Healing Programs.

Each one, is designed to help you shift not only your physical health to a greater state, but your mental and emotional health as well.

Choose the program that best suits your needs. Click on the image to see your different options.

 If you are unsure about all this, but have read this far, there is a reason. You are close to finding that big AH HA moment that will change your life forever, keep reading!

The reason we become a victim in life is due to a sense of powerlessness.

Society has not evolved enough, to know how to properly infuse a sense of true, unconditional self love into the individual.

We are all born into some form of oppression. Enforced, often seemingly right rules and dictations, that are supposed to help us be “good citizens”. However, these are all outer rules that allow no freedom of self expression and self exploration through a loving heart. Thus, it creates a sense of negativity and rigidity that shrinks our soul life.

This shrinking of our individual soul life leads to confusion, loss of a sense of self, anger, frustration, rebellion and/or depression.

Once sunk into this state of confusion and emotional chaos, it is hard to pull one’s self out, without a great amount of determination and external support.

Finding the right support system that resonates with who you feel you are, is key to overcoming this victimized and oppressed state. 

Which leads me full circle to my list of how to break free from the victimization in you life. Scroll back up and read it now from this new perspective and self reflection.

If you are ready to make some changes but unsure what direction is best for you;
