5 reasons to drink coconut water & a side of me you haven’t seen!

Hi there beautiful!

I hope all of you had a lovely holiday! I whipped up a lil spread for William & Oliver {our lovely care taker & friend}. The menu consisted of the following.

Fresh squeezed orange juice 
Young Thai coconuts 
Jackfruit 
Fresh watermelon 
Loquats 
A big salad :-) 
My special anti-inflammatory guacamole 
Organic salsa 
Baked root vegetables {butternut squash} 
Non-GMO corn tortillas 
Raw chocolate bark

4th of July!

It was a beautiful day with the ocean, Oliver & the doggies!


Today I wanted to share with you my all time favorite way to hydrate! Its with coconut water! Notice that its not one of those white young Thai coconuts! This is do to so many of them being dipped in formaldehyde! Thats right! I avoid them like the plague! Here is why I LOVE to drink coconut water!

 1) It's high in beneficial magnesium and potassium!

2) It contains copper! An essential mineral you don't here about to often that everyone needs!

3) Coconut water contains A LOT of antioxidants to ward off free radicals!

4) Got cytokines? Whats that you ask? Cytokines are compounds (found in coconut water) that slow the aging process and have been known to fight off cancerous cells.

5) Its a sweet treat thats actually beneficial and low cal!

 I hope this article entices you to begin drinking more coconut water! Just be sure and get it from a reputable source! I never trust a tetra pac or a white coconut unless I'm in the Caribbean!


A side of me you haven't seen! 

I'm hoping you find benefit from the above information. I love coconut water and drink it daily!

Hi beautiful :) I've got some great news! As you may already know I accept 5 new clients every other month for coaching!

This will go VERY quickly! In fact, I've scheduled another email reminder to go out tomorrow morning however the spot will most likely be filled by then!

That being said, lets move forward right now with you taking the next step!

Here is the best way to get in touch with me! Send an email to

Ten ways to detox daily & feel better today!

 

Until then, blessings and here is to your health!

Five Detox baths that will make you fall asleep fast!

Hi beautiful :) 

It's so easy to turn your bathroom into a lovely detoxification haven! Those of you who follow me know I reside in San Diego and spend my weekends in Mexico! Living bi-coastal allows me to take advantage of the beautiful ocean and all it has to offer! On this particular night, my "man~pan~ion" decided to harvest fresh sea weed for me and draw me a detoxifying salt bath with my "Sexy and Raw hair skin and nails Formula {Pure clay}! The finest clay on earth and I am the only source (YAY)!  The following are my top five favorite detox baths! Try them in your "Healthy Haven"! 

1) The Essential Oils Detox Bath ~ I LOVE putting essential oils in but never with clay as they tend to drown out each others healing properties! 

Ingredients 1/2 C of baking soda

10 drops of Essential oil~oils I suggest are

lavender~calms! 

Peppermint~when you need energy! 

Ylang Ylang~My go to sexy scent! 

Eucalyptus ~clears air pathways! 

Cedar-wood~depression! Instructions Add ingredients while drawing your hot bath. Soak for 20 minutes, once weekly. This combo is EXCELLENT to draw out toxins and lowers stress-related hormones! If you are interested in getting started in essential oils email me at click here

2) THE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR BATH ~ This is my personal fav! Simply add 1C of raw apple cider vinegar to your bath! Please note that whenever you add vinegar to your bath you will sleep like a newborn baby! 

3) The baking soda epsom salt bath!

Ingredients 

1C epsom salts

1C baking soda {aluminum free}

This bath SOOTHS sore muscles and is also GREAT after a stressful day as the salts will relax you!

4) The Ginger Bath ~My go to daily bath!

Ingredients

3 Heaping Tb of powdered organic ginger

This bath is excellent to help induce sweating! This makes for a FABULOUS skin remedy for dry and cracked skin and a good detox bath!

5) The sea vegetable bath {Good for those that live on or near the ocean like I do} 

Like I said above, my "man~pan~ion" rinsed mine for me and we were careful to not harm the fish life of the ocean by making sure that none of them came into the bath!

Ingredients

1 small bucket (about 6 Cups) of seaweed

NOTE~NEVER DO ESSENTIAL OILS WITH CLAYS OR EPSOM SALTS! The two will drowned out one anthers healing properties!

The Mexico ocean view bath! Enjoy your detox bath tonight! Let me know how it works out!

I’m pissed off!

Hi Beautiful :)

What really gets on my nerves and quite frankly pisses me off!  
As many of you know I have studied detoxification, reflexology in Lymphatic drainage, strategic body movement, yoga, living raw foods, juicing, natural hygiene, anti aging through herbs, colon cleansing and cellular cleansing for over a decade now! I actually began my journey at the age of 17 when I did my first juice cleanse. I always had in the back of my mind during my years as a fitness model that this was the path I was meant to take. 

After I was led to this path I went through YEARS of healing myself! YEARS! Then began the education! CAHA academy of Holistic arts for reflexology and Reiki! Training under Arial Hubbard! Meeting Gil Jacobs in NYC and allowing him to lead me along my path through his guidance once I returned to Ohio! Training at Optimal Health Institute gaining a certification! Working with a shaman for two years who took me under his wing! That was just the beginning! Heck I just got my yoga certification two weeks ago! I was taught by the best and I will never forget the struggle of suffering I went through with a deadly eating disorder that brought me here today! 

This is why when I see someone who was emailed me countless times asking for health advice, using my valuable information and promoting a "Digital detox" program exactly like mine I get a little be heaved. What mortified me even more is when I see this same individual lying about their education and offering help in serious diseases such as Lymes~disease when they are not qualified! 

There's a beautiful quote that I'm about to repeat to you it says Be yourself, everyone else is taken"! 

I think what's even more fitting for this type of behavior is to say BE CAREFUL OF WHO YOU HIRE AS A HEALTH COACH! If someone is claiming to be a "detoxification expert", chances are, they're not! 

Here are my top five WARNING SIGNS to look out for when hiring someone! 

1) Do they have a proven track record of clients that you can speak to for reference? No, this should not include their mother or brother in law! A person should be able to give you a minimum of ten people to Skype or chat with over the phone that they have helped. 

2) Do they have a history of working in the detoxification, raw living foods or health movement? Look, everyone needs to start somewhere but if someone was working in a completely different industry just one year ago, do you really want to put your faith in hiring them today? 

3) Do they have a history of helping others with your particular ailment? This could be anything from an auto immune disease to cancer. I'm seeing a lot of people speaking falsehoods in Facebook posts etc! This is just sickening to me to think that precious people like you could end up in the wrong hands! 

4) Are they still reaching out for advice from other health practitioners with their own issues? Everyone needs a holistic health guide for themselves HOWEVER, there is a fine line between hitting someone up with a serious ailment and hitting a person up for basic health advice! If they are a "holistic health practitioner, they should have the basics down! 

A perfect example of this is a young lady who has reached out to me for help several times during the past year and a half! SHOCKINGLY after she reached out to me again the other day, I click to view her Facebook page and she had several schools listed as her education that she had never attended! As if that were not deceiving enough, she just built an entire website claiming to be a detoxification expert! Oddly enough naming her "detox program" the same name I call mine! 

RED FLAG! 

5) Have they written their books and programs? Or, have they had their books written for them off someone else's work? 

I've seen some amazing people pop up in the Health movement that had a health scare or what I like to call the "health opportunity", who have healed themselves and then going on to be health practitioners themselves. They write absolutely beautiful books and create beautiful programs! 

I've also seen people pop up in the Health movement that steal information from others promoting it as their own, pay people to write expensive sales copy and promote programs that they don't even understand! 

Be warned and be cautious my friends! Whether you hire me or one of the amazing 20 certified practitioners in various areas of help that I can steer you towards, know that there is a HUGE difference between someone who is naturally drawn to this awareness movement and someone who is idolizing someone in it! 

Be well and be aware
