One year after they told me I would never do yoga again!

Today is an anniversary of victory for me! You see, one year ago I could not stand on this leg you see me balancing on! One year ago I could not walk or drive myself anywhere! One year ago I was told I would never be able to run again or practice yoga!

I didn’t listen when they told me I would need surgery! Instead I went on an eleven day water fast. I allowed my body to rest and fed it the BEST of foods and fresh juices! I gained the weight I needed to gain. I retrained my foot to walk again.

Balancing on the foot they never said I would use again!

My posture is not perfect….my balance a little off but you better believe that I learned a valuable lesson, NEVER let anyone tell you what you will not do!

Five tips to shop healthy at the grocery store!

Have you ever felt completely lost along your health journey when shopping in a grocery store? Ever feel like you just want to throw in the towel with so many choices? Guess what…its okay! I’ve been there too! I’m here to play super woman for you and take the guess work out of your shopping trip!

Here are my top five tips on how to shop healthy!

1) Do you have to hit the store? Look folks now days there are a plethora of farmers markets out there! You really do have all the options you need at your local outdoor market! Go online and find one near you!

2) Shop the perimeter of the store! Yep! This age old tip still stands true! Stay away from the canned, packaged processed items in the center isles and you will be good to go!

3) YES! Buying local and organic is a must! With our government allowing Genetically modified foods in our stores to go unlabeled its important now more than ever to buy organic! When we buy organic and from local growers we can rest assured the food is not sprayed and has literally just come from the farm if it says “local”!

4) GO VEGAN! Want to really trim your waistline and your wallet? Go vegan! Meats and dairy often come from factory farms and are filled with hormones that are not fit for human consumption! When I first went vegan I dropped a whopping thirty pounds! Thats right! Vegan is where its at!

5) Measure out your sweet treats such as organic dark chocolate! These foods are perfectly healthy and completely allowed daily on my program! The trick is to limit them! Try measuring out 2-3oz baggies of organic dark chocolate like I did below!

I know you will put the tips you’ve learned above to good use! If you still are not getting the results you want its not to late to join our seven day juicy cleanse below! Here is the link >>> http://thehealthyhaven.net/7-day-juicy-cleanse/

CANCER SUCKS!

The amount of people contacting me to work with them who have cancer is growing at an ever increasing rate. I can honestly say one out of every three clients of mine have some form of cancer. Yet when I suggest to people that they give up white flour, sugar, processed foods, pork, hormone laden red meat and pasteurized dairy they look at me like I’m nuts! As if these foods are fit for human consumption!

If you are not willing to make the changes to become healthy than why hire a coach in the first place? And by all means YES! CANCER SUCKS! So why not take a TRUE honest stance against it! ‪#‎truth‬ ‪#‎Youvegotthis‬fff

Raw vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls! AKA 5 minute cookies!!!

Raw vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls! AKA 5 minute cookies!!!health bites 1
 
Total Time: 5 minutes
 
Yield: 2 dozen bites
 
 
These healthy oatmeal cookie balls are delicious knock off  of oatmeal cookies. I was inspired to make these after watching a video the other day with a young boy (adorable lil guy) eating a store bought health bar! Those are great as long as you read the labels however I prefer to always make my own treats:)The honey is rich in enzymes and all the ingredients are natural and organic!
Ingredients
 
6 dates (pitted)
a few (a small handful) un sulfured dried golden raisins
1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
½ cup organic finely shredded coconut
¾ cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 Cup walnuts (OPTIONAL)
2TB raw honey
2 tsp of each of the following
cinnamon 
maca root powder
holy basil
Instructions
 
Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl or a food processor adding the chocolate chips last. Stick the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes, or until the nut mixture has chilled and firmed up slightly.
With damp hands, form 1 tablespoon of dough into a ball, squeezing it until about 1-inch wide and very compact. Chill the cookie balls until ready to serve or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to snack on throughout the week.
Notes
 
These healthy dessert balls have lots of great ingredients for your skin, hormones, blood sugar and the holy basil powder makes them have a calming effect! Replace the raw honey with maple syrup and you have vegan oatmeal cookies! Be sure and pin these or share them on your social media:)health bites 2

Why I no longer take on clients who consume pork! The pineal gland connection!

In order to be the light you must eat and drink the light! Eating things like pork and red meat simply do not allow for the pineal gland to work effectively!

What is the pineal gland? The pineal gland is a pine cone shaped gland of the endocrine system. A structure of the diencephalon of the brain. It produces several important hormones including melatonin.

Below is a list of things that inhibit the pineal gland from functioning properly!
The items listed below calcifies the gland and makes it no longer effective in balancing the entire hormonal processes through the body.

1) Detox the body of mercury and other heavy metals!
My suggestion is to consume foods such as chlorella, wheatgrass, spiraling, and green juices daily! Some studies have shown cilantro consumed daily can help remove mercury from the brain as well. DO NOT think if you are juicing daily that you have this covered! You don’t friends!

2. Avoid Fluoride both in toothpaste and in water!
We already know fluoride ruins the thyroid function! But did you know it effects pineal gland function? Avoid it at all costs. It calcifies the pineal tissue and basically shuts the gland down.

3. Consume ONLY organic NON GMO foods – many pesticides are pineal gland toxins.

4. STOP the use of drugs alcohol and smoking!
Naturally these need to go along with the emotional attachments to them. Many including myself believe the use of these two substances to issues of self worth or unresolved trauma.

5. The healing of the heart and working through feelings of anger and hurt
This method raises the vibration on a cellular level this is a useful advantage for when we start to decalcify the pineal gland.

6. AVOID toxins at all costs!
These include items such as artificial sweeteners that contain aspartame, refined sugar, deodorants containing aluminum, cleaning chemicals, dental mouthwashes and air fresheners.

7. Stop consuming meat especially pork and red meats!
This one is huge and why I refuse to now take on clients who consume foods such as pork! It simply does not allow for energy to flow freely! The toxicity and density of meat will pose challenges and we want to make the work of cleansing the body and the glands as easy as possible!

I can always tell if a client has consumed pork or red meat when I get a message or speak with them on the phone. They always seem to have elevated anxiety and not be as clear! There is a very distinct reason for this! Be aware that pork is filled with toxicity and disease and will not only effect the physical cleansing of the body but also ones spiritual connection!

Remember, I only want the very best for you! Andrea L Cox
