Lets face it, we could all use a little internal cleansing!
Over the last 8 years I’ve done a LOT of cleansing! Every cleanse is a bit different from the one before. One thing they all have in common is that at the end of each one I felt better than the one before!
As a matter of fact, my mental clarity is always SPOT ON when I am finished! I also have a sense of unadulterated physical energy that is unmatched by any drug both prescription or non! It is a high that cannot be matched! Other than the hunger pangs that come and go, I always feel my absolute best during fasts and raw food cleanses.
Other benefits of a cleanse include:
My skin becoming so clear it’s almost translucent!
The whites of my eyes becoming clearer!
Healthier skin, hair and nails!
A re-booting of my relationship with food
Emotional and spiritual insights and awakenings
Improved sense of overall well-being.
A more “go get it” type of attitude and wanting to go after life!
Food tastes unbelievable after every cleanse (cleaner pallet!)
I seem to have the ability to sense and feel my energy field much more acutely.
I have the want and down right need to rid my life of things and people who do not belong in it!
I want you to feel the same way! I want you to feel that same energy! To get started simply check out these five quick tips and then watch this amazing video I shot for all of you.
Tips for a great cleanse:
Get a juicer! A Breville is a good juicer to start however I prefer the Green star. If money is an issue just remember any juicer will get the job done!
Nix the nay sayers who tell you you need to be eating three square meals per day. Anyone who says that simply has not been educated on cleansing and could also be threatened by what they don’t know
Don’t feel like you need to set a time length to cleanse, THIS WILL SET YOU UP TO FAIL. instead simply juice until you no longer feel the need to. This is really getting in tune with your body!
Remember that you don’t have to take off work or anything for that matter while cleansing. In fact, you will most likley have more energy to handle tasks and do the things you love!
Get out and enjoy the sunshine while cleansing! Vitamin D does a body good, REAL GOOD!
I’m so excited fo all of you allowing me to guide you along this journey!
Congrats and let me know how it goes by posting your comments and questions below.
Have you been feeling run down, not so hot, or a little under the weather lately? I’ve been there…I know exactly how you feel.
Trust me when I say that I have used myself and my clients as guinea pigs for the past 6 years to get to the healthy, vibrant state that I am in today.
I want you to feel better, look better and be ready and able to take on your daily tasks with ease and joy!
Here are my top five tips on feeling fantastic super fast!
1. Yoga, yoga, yoga, and more yoga
You don’t have to work for NASA to know the benefits of yoga. The breath work alone is enough to relax, restore and rebalance your system for an entire 24 hours after practice. Whether it’s Bikram, Hot Yoga, Hatha, Iyengar or my personal favorite and what I find most challenging–Ashtanga–you are sure to be challanged and rewarded both mentally and physically!
2. Go for a brisk walk
You heard me, grab Sparky’s leash and head out on a nice twenty minute walk! This is sure to get you feeling better from head to toe! Just twenty minutes is all you need to make your blues go away and to get your circulation and lymphatic system pumping. So head for the hills and leave those sunglasses behind in order to stimulate your pituitary gland!
You’ve heard of getting eight hours of sleep, yes? How about nine! I prefer nine as do many of my clients. What? No time for nine hours of sleep you say? What about shutting off the TV and computer? I’m sure you can find room. If you are having trouble sleeping, try rescue remedy sleep formula. This is a fantastic all natural remedy that will not negativly effect the body’s system such as melatonin does. Studies have found that melatonin can wake up some auto immune disorders in people. No one wants that!
4. Warm up a little detox tea
Ahhh…camomile, dandelion ginger tea is one of my personal favorite concoctions! Nothing soothes a nauseous tummy or relaxes me at the end of a long day like this does. Try your own creation and be sure and write down the formula that works best for you. You can even keep it in the fridge overnight to have the next evening.
5. Make a green juice
I have been made fun of more than once–even by those close to me–for saying that I have not missed a day of green juice in eight years. Ya know what, I’m proud of it too! I want you to make a ritual out of this. Create a nice clean space and cut and clean your vegetables the night before. Leave them in your fridge and that way you have no excuses when you wake up in the morning. Starting your day off with a big juice is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself.
WOW! I feel better already!
Remember, I only want the best for each and every one of you! Later in the week you’ll be getting a big surprise from me on how to take the tips above to the next level! Until then, try these great tips out and let me know how they work for you!
It’s time for another episode of “Would I put this in my body!” Today I am featuring Aloe Vera. One that I would use and one that I would not. Why? Because one aloe vera has fillers that are not optimum for you or me! Remember I only want the best for you!

“I wanted to tell you how very much you have changed my life through getting to know you and your knowledge…Being in the public eye as a Playboy Playmate and as a pin up model, and actress often appearing in the public eye, I have discovered a entire new way of living thanks to you!! I suffered from hypothyroidism, and I have to say due to your eBook on food and juicing I am now cured! Not only has my stamina multiplied I am now free of this disease and feeling AMAZING!
I’ve taken on a whole new way of living, through purchasing all organic produce, following your advice, and your knowledge I can’t thank you enough for transforming my life! Not only am I off all medications, I HAVE lost the unwanted lbs I put on, and resumed my sense of self and a well being I can only attribute to you and your daily love and support! I not only have energy, I have a greater sense of self esteem and awareness I did not ever know was available:)I have also suffered from extreme bouts of depression and hormonal issues (lately) yet my depression and anxiety attacks go way back to when I began my modeling career,traveling constantly,(always on meds for that!)and that has also began to lift! I attribute to my new found knowledge about “real RAW food” and eliminating caffeine, alcohol,and bad sugars and unnatural salt..
You are my role model and a driving force that because of you, my life and health is so extremely different in EVERY sense..You are a TRUE inspiration, not only are you beautiful on the outside (stunning!) your inner beauty is intoxicating! Thank you for transforming my life, and for being my role model! My 20 year old daughter logs onto your page daily and we are on this new found path together which is wonderful that she has these tools now to take through her lifetime to pass on!!
I can smile again, and have gained a tremendous amount of self esteem that for so long I was lacking…I did not think or dream this would ever be possible, as I have sought help through various doctors and specialists and spent a fortune doing so…Little did I know YOU had that ability to change my life!!! I am forever grateful for you!!! I cant wait to join your retreats, and learn more about how to continue this exciting journey!!!! Thank God for you and you are so blessed to have the gift to change lives!!!! God has blessed you and blessed me for leading me down your path!!! Thank you so much!!!! xoxo”

This is one of the top questions I get. Should you eat salt? What kind of salt should you eat? If I’m 80-10-10 what should I do? In this video I wanted to talk to you about my some of my favorite sodium sources and how I like to use them and why. The four I’ll talk about in this video are coconut aminos, black lava salt, celtic sea salt and celery.
To recap a bit about what I covered in my first ever salt video, regular salt blows me up and I can really tell it the next day. I find that Celtic sea salt is great on a salad and it, like the other two sodium sources don’t have the same inflammatory effect on me like regular salt does.
If I have some digestive distress I use just a pinch of Black Lava salt from Hawaii with activated charcoal, it’s very good in assisting in eliminating the bowels if you have eaten something that doesn’t sit well with you, this is the power of the activated charcoal.
I also like to use the coconut aminos, a low glycemic coconut based, salt source, high in amino acids and B vitamins. I use it with my raw cauliflower dishes and on salads. I prefer to use this over another amino liquids because it’s from coconuts and not soy.
The best natural way to get your sodium is with fresh organic celery or dried celery, it’s also very high in hydrochloric acid, that is why I juice so much of it in my juices, the hydrochloric acid in celery is good for digestion.
Additionally I would like to say something that I didn’t cover in the video; Whenever possible I prefer to get my sodium from natural occurring foods such as sea vegetables, kim chee and sauerkraut.

Getting my Vandalia Butler high school colors in today of purple and gold!!! I must keep my body running like a machine for my up coming retreat in the desert next week! I can’t wait to spend five days with an AMAZING group of women! I present to you wild local
I’m feeling if this story helps just one woman (or man) out there today then I can retire! So I was doing my healthy girl stuff today along with getting my guests items together for the retreat I am holding next week when I decided I would go get a pedicure. BIG MISTAKE, HUGE! I ALWAYS bring argon oil with me to get a pedicure because as we all know the oil and lotions they use in these places are about as pure as snow with a pile of dog crap on top! I decided I would multi task & make a few business calls at the same time. I handed the gal my oil and 15 minutes later I feel like my legs are on fire! I look down and she is using the in house crap oil! So I naturally did what any level headed green juice Queen would do…I asked her to kindly bring me the bottle of what she was using. “Oh it’s all natural she said” “bottle please” I said! The bottle makes it’s way to my lap and wouldn’t you know it Parabens, fragrance, red die….blah blah freaking blah! So we used hot towels and wiped it off and now I am left with a rash over both calves (lovely). What I found so incredibly sad as I looked down at the 25 year old giving me the massage and noticed her bald spot on her head is that these women are not even aware of what the chemicals they are inhaling and that they are coming into contact with EVERY DAY are doing to their health! This ended in a powerful discussion between the owner and I. She said she was going to get online tonight and research a few other alternatives to bring into the spa (I’ll be checking).
Ladies, lets all wake the fig up, OK! This crap we are putting on our bodies, these lotions, potions, cosmetics are not healthy and do not mask the damage it does to our skin hair and nails! If you can’t eat it….Don’t freaking ware it or slather it onto your body! Men….same thing goes for you! If you are wearing cologne PLEASE don’t get next to me in yoga, at the grocery or anywhere! I once had a gal shoot me an E-mail wanting to team up on a project with me then just 2 days later she was Face Book posting that she could not live without her Channel Make-up?!? Needless to say that never got a call back! If you feel I mouth off to much about this kind of thing….Dam Right I do! It matters and I care about not only my health but about yours too!
