Health is NOT just the absence of pain, a blood panel within normal limits or a negative result on a medical exam.
I suffered from pain for years that my western doctors couldn’t figure out. I got all the tests, blood work, pokes & prods that they needed only to conclude that there was nothing wrong with me.
But I FELT terrible! Read more…
Ayurveda is most commonly known as a holistic medical system from India that dates back over 5,000 years… but what does this mean to YOU?
If you’ve been following me for a while you might conclude simply that Ayurveda has something to do with healthy eating, yoga postures and natural remedies for ailments. In some ways it can be as simple as that but Ayurveda’s wisdom is so much more vast! It provides you the tools for preventing disease and creating vibrant health and deeper fulfillment throughout your life!
I LOVE the spring, don’t you?! It’s a time to celebrate and clear out the old to invite in the new. All around us nature is celebrating too with a bounty of colorful flowers and an abundance of fresh new veggies and fruits.
In Ayurveda, spring is considered a cleansing season that transforms the damp and cold qualities of winter and brings more sunshine, warmth, lightness and “melting away” of impurities.
At times you might experience this “melting away” of impurities as mucous, colds, cough, congestion, maybe seasonal allergies, heaviness, sluggishness, mental fog or sleepiness.
If you are totally committed to creating vibrant health and abundant energy in your life, then it is vitally important to increase your awareness about ALL of the things you are feeding your body. I’m sure you’ve heard a million times “you are what you eat”… Most of us think of this in terms of food, but did you know, that your SKIN acts just like another MOUTH?!
Spring is a time of rebirth, of cleansing out the old and ushering in the new and of consciously letting go of all those things that no longer serve you so you can continue evolving and stepping into the life you want to create.
In nature, the snow is melting, carrying away old dirt and debris from the mountains and carving new life into the rivers feeding and nourishing plant life and animals along the way.
In the human body, that same “melting” and “liquefying” principle is at play giving a natural gateway for the body to cleanse. You may notice that the spring brings an increase in stuffiness, colds and congestion. This is because the human body is the same as nature, and we are naturally getting rid of what built up over the winter.
This is an important message for all ladies! Or for anyone who loves a special lady in their life
Did you know that in some cultures in the world, there is NO SUCH THING as PMS, cramps, bloating, headaches, mood swings, or any other uncomfortable symptoms associated with the hormonal cycle? It just doesn’t even exist in some places.
If you are experiencing ANY uncomfortable symptoms associated with your menstrual cycle, then there is something imbalanced in your body…

Why do you like to chew gum? I’ve found working with my one-on-one clients is that one of the top reasons they report is to freshen their breath.
