It’s Not Organic … Don’t Worry!!

Once I got pregnant with my third child, I became more aware of everything I ate. Not just eating healthy in general, but also a deeper concern of how my fruits and vegetables were grown. You can easily become over the top and obsessive, let me tell you!

The quick solution is to reach for organic products. However, that can be extremelincredibly expensive. For most, that is not even a reality they can afford. It is a global issue we as a society need to address, because everyone deserves access to food that is not laden with pesticides. In earnest, I want to be part of that solution, but how do we feed our children and ourselves TODAY?

Stop Drinking While you Eat!!!!!

Digestion is extremely important for health, staying slim, AND mental well being.  Without proper digestion, many discomforts can be born into the body – indigestion, irritability, heartburn,  lethargy, bloating, insatiable cravings, headaches, and depression.

Seriously imagine that you are doing something every single day that UNKNOWINGLY is causing ONE or MORE of these symptoms!  Wouldn’t you want to know what that was?

Have you thought about what you drink and how much you drink with your meals? Growing up, we weren’t allowed to drink with our meal. My mom’s reasoning was that we would get full with liquid, not eat our dinner, and then be hungry 1/2 hour after we were done with our meal. Unknowingly, my mom was leading us to a healthier us. And I still don’t eat while I eat. Read More →

How to Remove Gallstones Naturally…

Lemons

This week, I am doing a liver/gallbladder flush. Why? Here is the thing.

While pregnant with baby #2, almost 9 years ago, I suffered from heartburn – what I thought it was – and a lot of it. Spicy, salty, and greasy food would trigger the pain. I would consume tons of TUMS thinking it would help. Many times the pain would keep me up at night, and sometimes, would be so intense that I would throw up.

The problem did not ceased after having my son. So about a year after my son was born, my doctor did an ultrasound of my gallbladder to see if I had any stones; it came back negative. After intensive research, I found out that even with a negative ultrasound, you STILL can have gallstones as they are most likely located in the back of the organ, which would not be visible with the ultrasound. Makes sense to me. Read More →

What is a Goji berry?

The Goji berry, also called the wolfberry, is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that’s native to China. Although relatively new to the U.S. market, Goji berries have been part of Asian herbal medicine for over 5,000 years. Loaded with beta carotene, they are great for your skin. They are packed full of antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and over 20 trace minerals making them a “SUPERFOOD” powerhouse.  Treat Goji berries like a dried fruit.  Toss them in a salad, add them to your trail mix,  oatmeal, or even yogurt.  They pair very well with grains like oats, nuts like walnuts and fruits like strawberries.
