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

New Video ~ Five Tips to prevent a binge & Healthy Gluten Free Raw Vegan Tacos!

So I'm running a detox retreat this week and someone asked for this recipe she saw me share last year! I made them again last night & they were a HUGE hit!

                  DETOX RAW VEGAN TACOS 

1 1/2 cups golden flax (ground into fine meal) 
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels {organic} 
1/4 cup chopped onion 
1/4 cup chopped red pepper 
1 tsp chili powder 
1/2 tsp cumin 
1/2 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in mixer and process until smooth. Spread out onto teflex sheets and dehydrate for about 2-3 hours. Then, cut batter into large rounds. You should be able to pull the rounds off of the sheets then flip and dehydrate about an hour more. While they are still pliable fold rounds over to make a shell. Use toothpicks to keep shell propped open and dehydrate another 3-5 hours until crispy & delish!

For the taco filling! 1 cup soaked walnuts or pumpkin seeds

1 stalk of celery 
1/2 cup chopped cabbage 
1 carrot 
1/2 a tomato 
1 Tbsp chilli powder 
1 tsp cayenne pepper 
1/2 tsp of namo shoyu {optional}

Enjoy my lovelies‼ Happy taco Tuesday!

The one vegetable high in iron, calcium and vitamins A, C & K!

Happy Monday Beautiful:)

Got Kale? Kale is a staple in my home! Here's why!

People ask me all the time where do I get my protein? Where do I get my calcium? Where do my vitamins come from! To be honest with you, most of us vegans get really exhausted from the protein question! We know that our protein does not come from a protein powder or animals! Our protein comes from vegetables such as broccoli and from our dark leafy greens such as KALE!

As far as minerals go, I truly LOVE my new clay based formulas {see video below}! That doesn't mean however that you will ever see me leaving out precious kale from my diet!

In fact, I juice kale, eat kale, steam kale and blend it!

Below are a few reasons of why kale is a staple in my kitchen!

It's high in sulfer & therefore it is an excellent detox food! 
It's high in iron {stellar before a woman's cycle}! 
It's high in vitamins A & C! 
Per calorie it has more calcium than milk! 
Eating more kale lowers cholesterol! 
It's high in fiber! 
Kale has zero fat! 
Kale is an excellent source of vitamin k! 
Kale is high in antioxidants, such as carotenoids and flavonoids! 
Kale is a natural anti inflammatory!

kaletop!

 

If you don't have kale in your life, go grab some! If you love kale like I do, let me know why below and how you love to prepare it!

Have a beautiful "kale Monday" everyone‼ Here is the video on my AMAZING detox and beauty products!

Five tips to a healthy tan & the worst call of my life!

Hi there friends:) I want to share with you something that happened a year ago that left me in a puddle of tears and hopping a flight to see a family member immediately!

I had called to talk with my family member like I do every day and she revealed to me that she had found out she had skin cancer. In more than one place on her face! After I wept, I booked a flight to take her some essential oils to use on the affected area! Frankincense oil in particular is AMAZING for skin cancer as is lavender essential oil for scar prevention.

One year later I'm happy to report she is doing GREAT! She is taking large amounts of vitamin C and she still uses the essential oils! In fact, you cannot tell she has any scars from the removal! {Thanks essential oils}! This woman is the most humble gracious woman I know therefore in order to protect her privacy I would like to keep who it is to myself {thanks for understanding}.

Although I don't avoid the sun completely, I have changed the way I use the sun! Ive also changed what I believe about sun exposure today!

Here are my top five tips on how to use the sun for your benefit! 

1) Although I maintain my stance on the best form of absorbing vitamin D being through safe moderate sunlight {around 15-20 minutes daily}I have stopped the "sun worshipping"!

2) I take a vitamin D supplement EVERY day! Even when I am in the sun!

3) If I want a tan, I get a spray tan however I get a NON TOXIC one using a base of either beets, walnut oil or brown sugar! The one mentioned below is PARABEN FREE!

4) I use essential oils before, during and after any sun exposure!

5) I do not avoid the sun completely knowing the HUGE benefits! I use the sun in a smart way!
