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.

My Self Inspiring question of the week is;

What do you struggle with the most over the holidays?

In true resonant health, have a Self Inspiring week,

How to Feel Amazing in 2017!

Happy New Year to you!

Would you like to discover how to feel amazing in 2017?

how-to-feel-amazing-in-2017

I’m starting 2017 with a whole new perspective on my health and how to help you with your’s. 

I always start the new year with new goals, desires and reason’s for those desires.

And, having been blessed with having Mercury go Retrograde over the last couple weeks; has really helped me take the time to reflect on the past year and beyond. Giving me time to recognize what I’m ready to let go of and what I’m ready to attract into my life.

How about you? What reflections have come up for you over the last few week?

I have dedicated most of my life to health and healing. Be it my own healing or the health of those who have come into my life.

Sometimes with a bit more enthusiasm then the other’s may have wanted!! 

But, always because I care. I care so deeply about taking responsibility for my own health and the desire to share this with others. 

We only get one body in this lifetime and health is vital to having a long full, enjoyable life experience.

It has taken me a long time to find the balance between wanting desperately to heal everyone I knew and loved in the way I thought was best. To not helping unless asked.

Definitely my Karmic journey and life lesson!

Which is why, I am starting this year with a whole new perspective. 

I am still here to guide and support whom ever is in need of my healing and health care knowledge. Because that is the gift I have been blessed with.

However, it will come in a new way. One that supports each of us as individuals, and all of us as a caring community of Health Seekers!

So to start of the New Year, I would like to reflect and share with you, all of the healing tools that I have used over the years to find and heal, my true inner self.

To help you  heal that self on every level – Mental, Emotional and Physical, and feel amazing every single moment of every single day!

How to Feel Amazing in 2017!

Step 1. Commit to taking care of you first, every single day!

I don’t mean in a narcissistic, egotistical, I’m better than you way. But, in a way that tells the world, that you love you, in every single way, every moment of every day.

You are and should be the most important person in your life, PERIOD.

You can still be an amazing, loving, community and family supporting individual, while making each decision based on what would be best for you and your soul and spiritual growth first. 

When your cup is full of love and light, then you can give that same energy back to other’s!

Step 2. Make healthier lifestyle choices, based on your individual needs.

In other words, take the time each day to make cleaner, healthier choices in these important areas of your life;

  • Nutrition/food: I highly suggest looking into eating in a more Ketogenic way. After eating a Paleo diet for many years, I switched to Ketogenic and have felt better than I have in years. There is a lot of new evidence, that supports how a Ketogenic lifestyle can reverse; type 2 diabetes, halt cancer, improve and heal brain damage/concussion, MS, Parkinsons, alzheimers and more. It is also the easiest way to lose excess weight!
  • Exercise: I’m not a huge advocate of becoming a “gym rat”, but if getting a personal trainer to help get you started is necessary, then by all means do so. The benefits of making sure you do at least 20 – 30 minutes of exercise every single day is well documented. I suggest finding something physical you love to do, like; hiking, walking in nature, yoga, cycling, riding a horse and so on. Find at least one thing that you can be active doing, every day and just do it!
  • Quality Supplementation: We all know that our food sources are deficient in vital nutrients. Many of our health problems arise from nutritional deficiencies and malnutrition. And, unless you are being completely neurotic with your daily nutrients, you are more than likely deficient of several vital nutrients. To remedy this I highly suggest you take a bio-available, whole food nutrient, such as, Solarstrips with Frequensea or Prodigy 5.
  • Relaxation: Levels of relaxation vary with each individual. My form of mediation is to wake 15 minutes before I need to get up. Stay relaxed, and do some focused visualizing of my goals for the day. I also find that when I ride my horse, I am in a “zone” of just being one with me and my horse! Sweeping the front walk can be a very quiet relaxing few minutes for me, that allows me to simply stay in the absolute moment. What ever you need to do, to bring your focus to the immediate moment and be quiet and calm within, both on a mental and emotional level, is what you should try to do each day. Even if it is just for 5-15 minutes.
  • Aesthetics for the Body and Home: Whatever you touch, put on, clean with etc, all affects your level of health. 

    It is extremely important to buy natural, environmentally friendly cleaning products. Household product are extremely toxic and poisonous. Which, affect and block up your cleansing organs. I have also noticed in my practice that many so-called allergies are actually simply reactions to toxins like pesticides and cleaners!

    The more toxins you take in, the harder it is for your body to function properly and efficiently. Often so called Seasonal allergies and allergic asthma can actually be caused by too many toxins and chemicals. An overloaded internal system needs to discharge in some way!

    The simplest and most cost effective way to clean a household is with baking soda, apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil and salt.

  • It is even more crucial that your body care be free of parabens, sodium sulfates, propylene glycol and other harmful, toxic chemicals. Brands that are a safe guarantee are Aubrey organics, Avalon organics, Weleda, Neil’s Yard, Green Beaver, Natural Blends, Vidoma, Floral Actives, Pure and Natural Spa cosmetics and body care, Suncoat and Zuzu cosmetics, Lavera, Jurlique and Haushka, Jaydancin, body care and cosmetics. Go on line and find one that is made close to where you live!

    With regards to feminine hygiene products, it is imperative to use unbleached organic cotton tampons. Pads are less of an issue, but it would be of great benefit for your body and the earth to use the organic brands as well. There is also the option of using the Diva cup, which is reusable and crafted out of silicon. More information on this product or similar ones can be found online or at your local health food retailer. Again a lot of toxic feelings around your monthly cycle can be from the toxins in bleached pads and tampons.

  • Sleep: Last, but certainly not least.

    Get your sleep! At least 6-9 hours per night. Try to retire and rise earlier. In a perfect world we want to achieve what is known as “baby sleep” which takes place between 8 pm and 12 am. Any steps towards getting a portion of this time frame is great. Did you know, that lack of sleep on a continual basis does affect your health on every level. It puts a strain on your inner organs that control digestion, assimilation and elimination, by not allowing them to regenerate fully. Which means that you cannot process and discharge fully! (I am planning on introducing a Sleep Kit to my line up this year.)

Step 3. Discover the Healing Power of Dynamic Medicine and Sequential Treatment.

These two single things, have changed my life in the most incredible ways!!

We are all here on a journey of self discovery. 

The events that unfold in your life are seen from your perspective and yours only. Each based on all of your past experiences, beliefs, inherent, genetic predispositions and karmic knowledge. All of which you can free yourself from with the right tools.

If you find that you continually struggle with the same issues, over and over, and want to free yourself from these. Be sure to check out my Sequential Treatment Program. 

Life is not about being stuck in the same rut and doing the same things over and over. It is about personal evolution in the highest and best way for you!

This program is like taking the red pill in the movie the Matrix

bluepillredpill

Facing the truth may not be easy, but it’s the only way to true freedom and whole health.

Just think of me as your personal guide. Because, I’ve been there, done that and made it out the other side!!

“Andrea, Thank you for everything… I really feel like your guidance has helped me get on a path I have been resisting for some time. Your courage, strength and support is really empowering for me. I can’t thank you enough.” Beth S
